While trying to log into my Modem gateway I seem to have typed something into the field, and the dialog appeared asking if I wanted to update the password. My finger slipped and I accidentally told it to update, so it saved over the prior password (which I assume would have been the CORRECT password.) Now there's no way to log into my modem gateway manager. There's no recover password option. I don't want to reset the entire modem to factory settings, and thus have to set up all my network and account info from scratch. Isn't there a simple "view password history" option somewhere? It tells me WHEN the password was "updated" but I can't find a way to see WHAT the former saved password was. (Windows 10)

My firefox is slow but not real slow but enough to notice a little bit. It does take a minute to first load. It has crashed but only when I have clicked the close Firefox " Red X"

It really does a crazy thing.  If I have VLC open playing a file, or I am in Firefox on YouTube If I change to new tab or click a link my sound on the Desktop crackles and it's like everything comes to a halt in VLC and Firefox. Or just in Firefox on YT.   I am not sure if this is a hardware issue with my speakers I have already moved the speakers plug to front and no change it still does it.  The speakers are old I bought them way back in 2005.  Do speakers go bad?  I don't know why it is doing this. 

My other issue is cleaning my computer. You see Firefox has over 8,000 bookmarks I have collected since around 2006-2008 or even earlier. I don't know how to remove the ones I don't need anymore. I guess it has well over 250-300 folders and loose bookmarks My guess around 1500+ not in folders. Some folders will scroll a few minutes. I want to removed some folders I don't need anymore and want to know if there is a way to store others in case I need them later I can load them and keep some on Firefox? Many of these book marks are related to research I have done and I can't just trash my bookmarks and start over.

Every time I close Firefox and open it again, I go to YouTube, and it has me signed out, and I have to sign back in again. Once I have signed in, I can still refresh the page and still be signed in, or open another tab with YouTube with me signed in, but if I close Firefox and open it again, and go to YouTube, I am signed out. Any help would be appreciated Thanks

I've only experienced this on Firefox, but while watching multiple videos/twitch streams, video playback becomes very choppy and laggy. Actually, firefox in its entirety becomes laggy. This is not a problem when using chrome/chromium, and my PC is more than powerful enough to handle this, with a rtx 2060 and an i5-10500. On chrome I've watched 4 streams on twitch at once with no issues, but on Firefox it starts becoming choppy with only 2 open. Anyone know how to fix this? I don't really want to use chrome anymore. I'm currently running Pop! OS 21.04, with Firefox version 89.0.2.

He visto que los colores en general que muestra Firefox son mucho más saturados, aquí les comparto una imagen comparativa de solo una página, pero creo que pasa con todas, alguna idea de por qué y cómo solucionarlo? porque por otro lado, cómo saber cuáles son los colores verdaderos? esas páginas de la imagen estaban en la misma pantalla, así que no tiene que ver con calibración de monitor y así :S

You’ve enabled HTTPS-Only Mode for enhanced security, and a HTTPS version of r.smartbrief.com is not available.

This link has worked thousands of time in the past with Secure Connection Mode turned on.

Why is it FAILING now?????????

When I click on the Continue to HTTP Site button, the HTTPS:// link is fully invoked.

Something is wrong with Firefox 89.0.2 running on MacOS 10.14.6 on a MacBook 2017 model.

I use Mozilla Firefox as my browser. Every time I do an internet search, I get an error message:

We're Sorry

Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts.

To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report.

(checked) Tell Mozilla about the crash so they can fix it

Details (button)

(I used to write a note, even giving my phone number asking for help, but after getting no help, I stopped writing details.)

(checked) Include the address of the page I was on

Your crash report will be submitted before you quit or restart.

Restart Firefox (button) Quit Firefox (button)--this is my typical response.

Any help would be appreciated. I am a dinosaur. I can use my PC, but am not very computer savvy.

My computer details: Dell PC Windows 10, version 21H1 LAN with 14.28 GB IP assignment Automatic (DHCP) Link speed (Receive/Transmit) 100/100 Mbps Manufacturer: Intel Description: Intel (R) Ethernet Connection (2) 1219-V Driver version: 12.18.9.10

If you need to know any additional info, please tell me where to find it on the PC. Please be as detailed as possible. I am a rank amateur.

Hi guys, when I open FB messenger and navigate to 1 of the chats whole Windows freezes. I can't even use ctrl+alt+del when that happens, my only option is to power of the device with power button and restart it. I tried disabling all the extensions and also tried incognito mode, but as soon as I open the tab it crashes again.

Issue is not reproducible on Chrome.

I can't get logs or check processes because whole Windows is frozen.

Any suggestions?

Since I updated Firefox, my posts in Instagram having been showing these weird dots, which I hope you can see in the image. (I made sure I deleted spaces between paragraphs, so they don't correlate with spaces.)

It doesn't happen when I view Instagram in other browsers.

I've seen it on one other person's posts, so it's not just mine. But it's obviously pretty rare. (Which might just mean that most people who make Instagram posts are not using Firefox.)

Any idea how I can fix it so this doesn't happen? My posts are created in Planoly, in case that makes any difference.

Thanks in advance!

Hi! Some days ago I started experiencing problems to load Google service webpages. For example sometimes youtube tells that there is a connection problem, when loading gmail I get " has experienced a network protocol violation that cannot be repaired". When I use other browser I can access to that services with no problem. I am in linux, and I have tried disabling all the add-ons, starting in "safe-mode" and rebooting my computer. At the beginning everything works fine, but after some time starts failing. I have tried with different Firefox versions, and the problems persists.
