I am using Firefox since several years with a PrimaryPassword for saved passwords. With Windows 10 it is used since a year or so. I regularily kept Firefox open for several days, but had no issue with it. But since some weeks firefox is asking for the Primary Password every day. This is quite anoying. After entering the password again, it continues to work, but will ask for the password on the next day again. Another post talks about a possible issue with some specific virus scanners, but I am just using Microsoft Defender Antivirus, which ships with Windows 10. I did not add any Add-on recently, so I suppose an issue with one of the latest Firefox updates (current version is 90.0.2 64-bit on Windows 10). Thanks for any tips.

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

I want to opt out of the new (slower than molasses) "trusted partner redirect" Firefox gave me ONE chance for 3 seconds before closing the option window.

This has resulted in slowing down an already too slow event in Firefox. This is why users are going to chrome.

It's a great idea as an option. Not a great idea to force it on users.

Thanks for your help,

I use & want to continue using Firefox Password Manager but, since updating to Version 90.0.2 (64Bit), The "Please enter your primary password" window keeps opening about every 15 minutes (I have not timed it). I have already entered my primary password & used the auto login with several webpages. Then the login window will popup & I will have to re-enter the password before I can use the features. I am running Windows 10, with the latest updates installed.

When I restarted Firefox after a freeze, I did NOT get the familiar message that lets me choose to restore all windows. When opened, Firefox showed only ONE window (the one I was working in when it froze up). The Firefox menu (upper right corner) does NOT display a Restore Previous Session option. It's as if all the windows open in my last session never existed. Is there any way I can still reopen them now?

So I've disabled Firefox updates because of the personal preferences. It keeps nagging me every day with the modal to update. How do I disable this annoying useless feature?

Firefox 85.0 on mac os.

I've tried searching "about:config" for all preferences that contain "update" and look like timers and changed the timestamps to something in the far future. Still no dice, the update dialog keeps appearing every day like clockwork.

Hi,

After an update on Firefox 87.0 the pop-up exceptions defined are not working in private mode. A yellow bar appears that tells me that prevent the popups. If I choose to allow the popups with the button on the left of url then the url is added on exceptions/allowed window with a ^privateBrowsingId=1 marked in the url. However this is not persisted on a next run of firefox on private mode.

If someone have setup exceptions is there for a reason and should not be broken in private mode. I also cannot add ^privateBrowsingId=1 on my own in the url on the exceptions, as it appeared as %5 in exceptions and it does not work to allow pop-up.

Thanks

Thanks to terrible, productivity-sucking changes in the basic functions of the FF browser, I have started using other browsers. First - FF updates far too frequently - almost daily. No option to block update notifications. Never know if it's something trivial, an important security fix, or a major interface change. The 'what's new' page is always incomplete. 2nd - FF downloads software surreptiously through the sneaky "normandy" back door and inserts feature changes irregardlessly. Doesn't matter if you explicitly selected NO to enrolling in studies. Users can't get a straight answer on how to disable Normandy. Named after the Allied stealth invasion of Europe, it does the same thing to our computers. 3rd- FF caters to fringe techie desires with an onslaught of unwanted or unsuable additions that bloats the software, uses up CPU, or inserts intrusive attention-seeking diversions. I am forced to spend too much time after each update to investigate how to shut off unwanted surprises as well as unannounced alterations to my option settings. For example, if I press the mute button on my keyboard a very large media window pops up and takes over a sizeable chunk of my computer screen. It cannot be resized. It has no close button. Took hours to find out how to disable this. 4th-FF developers seem to expect users to have the newest computer equipment, huge display screens, and lot's of extra memory. If not, too bad. 5th - the recent puzzling, arrogant changes to the basic print function is evidence of that mindset. FF developers say they aren't going to let users revert to the normal "classic" small foot-print pulldown menu on the left side of the screen to preview, set up headers, etc. Too bad if the open window is too narrow to view this new intrusive, real estate consuming right hand display. Too bad that you can no longer simply seamlessly interact and accomplish the task. Too bad that the FF developers think they know better than you that you should change the way you work. 6th Reader view is an obscure feature. I do not want to be forced to use it. I do my best to strip out or ignore the overwhelming number of pictographs competing for my attention, 7th - I can no longer see URLs in the address bar. You've truncated them. I am forced to cut and paste them into a text editor to see them in their entirety. 8th - Firefox hangs video streaming sites like peacocktv.com. Windows Taskmanager shows that FF forces CPU and hard drive usage to 100%. 9th -There is no mechanism to escape, break, or interrupt FF's failed video stream. How sad that Microsoft's obnoxious Edge browser is better at video streaming. It uses far less system resources on the same video streaming site. AND doesn't hang the OS. It's likely FF's new unwanted capability to launch multiple picture in pictures - which I don't use - hogs resources. 10th- How about beta testing using 'normal' non-super techie /gamer users? 11th -FF disabled user Feedback. I stopped updating Firefox. Not trustworthy.

Every time I switch on my laptop, I found that it was heating up without opening anything. I open the task manager and I see that Firefox is running and using a huge amount of the CPU and apparently consuming a lot of the battery as well. Firefox is not there in my startup list. I have reinstalled and installed multiple times. I have tried changing toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to false. I have tried changing browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false.

If I do open Firefox now, without ending the task that is already running, and then close it later, it is still running in the background. Only way to stop this task running is to end task and I have to do it every time I switch on my Laptop.

I hope I have described the problem well, please let me know what other details I can provide. I am putting a screenshot of the task running as well. Thanks in advance

No suggested fix works. Reinstalling does not help, toggling DRM application does not help. It was obviously the update (at least for users on 78.10.0esr with OS X 10.9.5) that did it. Is there some way to get this registered as a bug?

There are no more borders around the tabs except the active one. It is hard to click click fast to change to another tab - special with pinned tabs with some icons blured with the theme I love. Also the theme-icons got deactivated and there is now the lower bar empty without the tabs. They went up into a new bar higher added. How can I fix that with boardred tabs located downwards and the intuitiv easier clickable icons back?
