Does Firefox manage the priority of processes in Windows 10 ?

As Firefox often responds slow to my actions on my Compaq Presario CQ5303NL I have tried solving this by raising the priority of some of the 8 to 10 firefox.exe processes from Normal to High (with 3 Firefox windows and about 20 tabs open). This is done with the Task Manager. However the last month every 10 to 20 minutes the priority settings are reversed and about four firefox.exe processes are then set to Low priority at regular time intervals. This also seems to result in slow response to mouseclicks. Are you aware of this phenomenon? Is this something Firefox does by itself, or is this intervention coming from Windows 10. I notice that when I put explorer.exe in high priority, this lasts till shutdown of the computer, as with other manageble processes.

This is not a serious problem. It's more questioning what Windows is doing with Firefox. (memory is 6GB)

When using passwords containing the dollar sign "$" Firefox won't autofill or login correctly

I'm encountering this problem: I have a few passwords which contain "$" and Lockwise refuses to save the entire password after the symbol (i.e.: "123456$abc" will be saved as "123456$"). Additionally, when I manually correct this by editing the password in Lockwise, then go back to the website to log in, autofill won't fill the password in automatically. After filling in the password and clicking "enter", Firefox asks if I want to save the updated password; when I unhide the password in this popup it has once again removed all characters following the $ (again the password appears as "123456$" instead of "123456$abc"). I'm stuck in a loop attempting to login to a few sites where this continually happens. Going to these sites in Chrome or Safari does not recreate the problem, so I assume it's not the actual websites but how Firefox handles "$" in passwords?

Does "Allow Cookies for Session" (under Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Permissions) mean that Firefox will only store websites cookies that are used to remember that we are signed in or does it mean that it will only remember cookies for a website until I close the browser? Does session mean: 1) The active session until I close the browser; 2) The session/fact that I'm logged in to a website?

There are times when I am traveling that I am out of range of any wi-fi and I have to use my data plan to access websites. Many websites have videos that play automatically. I have seen methods to block auto play. My question is, are these blocked from using my data or do they download to firefox but just don't get played? If the latter, is there some way to block the use of my data?

This issue arrised a few days ago when trying to re-sign into my firefox sync account on my W10 PC. When entering the 2FA number I got the message exactly like in the second attached image: "Your email was just returned" therefore I was unable to sign in.

Attempts to sign in elsewhere were successful and, at the time, I suspected it was an issue with 2FA because I had another issue with signing in to something else and went to firefox to validate that.

Although I can sign in normally now; I am still unable to add 2FA, account recovery, or a secondary email as I still get the same message.

Hello,

Recently, I can't log in to another Google account on my Firefox browser. On google.com site, when trying to log in on another account by Account button at top right corner, it doesn't effect when clicking even though bottom left corner show detail link. It happens with Apps button next to Account button as well. I'm using Firefox version 70.0.1 (64-bit). It make annoying on me quite much cause I often work on more than one Google account.

I has IDM Integration Module, uBlock Origin and Ace Script add on. I realize IDM and uBlock add on but I don't know what is Ace Script. I tried to remove it but it can't (only disable it). I also tried to disable uBlock Origin but problem can't be fixed.

I have read every article on this I can find, including everything in Firefox. I cannot get videos to stop automatically play. I can get them to not play sound. I have changed every single setting in about:config, media.autoplay. Nothing stops them from playing. I have used numbers from 0 to 5 in media.autoplay.default. Attached is a screenshot of my settings.

I do not have any plug-ins at this point, as I just installed Windows 10 and am configuring my computer.

I am extremely sensitive to these moving videos; they make me feel sick. So I really need them disabled. PCMag is a good example of a site with a million different (types?) of videos playing.
