I had to purchase a new wireless router. It is recommended to use a new SSiD name on the new router verses the old one to stop issues with IoT devices. If I use a new recommended SSiD name, Firefox v90 takes well over 2 minutes to load. Google Chrome and Edge load instantly. If I do use the old SSiD Firefox loads normally again but I have problems with a bunch of my IoT devices on the network. I have tried setting the loading page to blank, clean installs, refreshing Firefox and playing with other settings in about:config. (Were does Firefox keep tabs of the network name so I can just clear it?) Is it in the registry? Windows 10 Pro 64 PC - New ASUS RT-AX86U router. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey folks!

So ever since yesterday, I have been seeing this issue with certain websites that were earlier working just fine wherein most of the text is not showing up. Please refer to the attached screenshots.

These sites are opening just fine on other browsers though. So I am certain the issue is with Firefox. I have deleted the cache already, and also disabled Hardware Acceleration through the Performance settings.

Still no resolution...

Today is the first time I noticed a red fence icon above the box where I type my email address to login to the website where I do my work as a bookkeeper for a property management company. When I placed my cursor on the icon it said, "If you use your real email address here, Facebook may be able to track you. Click to learn more." See attached screenshot. But, clicking did nothing.

I'm pretty sure I'm safe since the email address I use to login to work is different from the one I use for Facebook, but could someone please shed more light on this?

Thanks! ~Elise

Whenever I check "about Firefox" under the Help menu, if there are updates, FF automatically downloads and installs them. This is not my preferred method of installing updates. When I go to the Tools/Settings and type in "Updates", I find that the "Automatically install updates (recommended)" button is selected. Of course, I immediately change this to the "Check for updates but let you choose to install them" setting, which lasts until I (manually) install the next update. At that point, the new update setting defaults back to "Automatically install updates (recommended)".

Is there a way to make my update selection stick?

Hello,

Since the last Firefox update I am being prompted for my primary password at random intervals of time. Before I only needed to enter my primary password once per session and this new behavior is a bit worrying as I didn't see it documented anywhere (is that really Firefox asking me for my credentials?). I had a look in the settings but couldn't see any new "timeout" feature or anything in the Privacy & Security section. What gives?

Thanks for any answer that will explain this mew behavior.

Hello, I need your help with removing a duplicate bookmark star from the URL bar, please. The thing is I already have moved it to the top left corner just as I prefer. However, the star in the URL field is impossible to kill. I have tried to use the customization menu but it does not allow me to drag off this annoying URL star. And, even if I right-click it in hope to find something like "remove/hide the Bookmark star" this star does not react to right-clicks. Also, after some research I have not found the way to do it via about:config :-( _

  Can you help me remove the star in the URL bar? The star in the top left corner though should stay because this is where I need it, but the star in the URL bar should go away.

PS this problem appeared after the "wonderful' June GUI redesign. Before that I was able to remove the star easily from the address bar. I am attaching a screenshot below:

Firefox keeps crashing, when I boot it up a prompt appears for half a second asking if I'd like to go to safe mode, but the prompt window instantly closes after half a second. I have tried refreshing the app, uninstalling, and reinstalling, and nothing seems to work. The app was working a day before this. How can I get it to work properly again? It is worth noting that I had to ask my parents to allow my computer to use firefox the day before all this happened, but after that, it worked fine. Only now there are crashes every time.

I've noticed I've had a number of new Firefox updates recently. I've also noticed it takes much longer to load my initial web site when I log into Firefox. That web site is my head page, MSN. It now takes much longer to load that site than before. Is it possible these updates have caused the problem? How can I see what is causing the lengthy wait time for my head page to appear. It takes much longer than it used to. Appreciate input into the issue. Thank you.
