Description of problem:
I must use a smartcard reader from GEMALTO for accessing a specific professional site.
I had to use sc-interface from Cryptovision which provides a library. I configured Security Devices with /usr/local/lib/libcvP11.so
When I access the secured site, the PIN is asked. Normally, one time will be enough, but the window for the PIN comes again and again until the site is completely displayed.
By comparison, Chromium asks the PIN, then ask which certificate to use, then all is fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
91-ESR, but this was already the case with 78-ESR.
I reported it also upstream.
After further testing, the problem is present with 91-ESR release from upstream, but not with the 93.0 release.

When you see that they have patched 91-ESR for this issue, then please assign this report to all packagers collectively (or to its maintainer, if it has one, then), so that the patch can be imported.
solved upstream in firefox-93.0See Also:
Here is the report for the resolution in Firefox 93.
However, the patch has not been ported to ESR. Discussions are on going.
A correction has been pushed to 91.3esr

Assigning to all packagers collectively, since "Nobody" maintains this package.
One of them might already want to add the upstream patch to 91.2 instead of waiting for 91.3 to be released.

I added the patch from comment4. Does firefox-91.2.0-1.1.mga8, which is in core/updates_testing, solve the problem?

Yes, it does !
The updated package fixes Firefox prompting repeatedly for smartcard password.
