Just upgraded to 89. It bugs me that all the folder icons are white outlined with gray. However, there is this bar that says “You must log in to this network before you can access the Internet”. What the heck is this and why is it there. Yes, there is the X to close it, but why do I have to see this when open FF?

The developers changed the folder icon in Firefox 89.

More info (see dickvl's and jscher2000's replies)


Firefox message:

You must log in to this network before you can access the Internet.

A comment in the source says:

Shown in a notification bar when we detect a captive portal is blocking network access and requires the user to log in before browsing.


Try disabling the captive portal feature.

Turn off captive portal

Why is Firefox establishing connections to on start? ... -on-start/
