When I use Zendesk (my company's chosen support ticket solution) it is disabling my ability to right click in any other open tab/window. When I close Zendesk, close Firefox, and reopen all the other tabs/sites besides Zendesk, my right click function is restored.

I have no clue what the Zendesk site is doing that is causing this, but I'm wondering if Firefox has a way for me to disable that for the Zendesk site, while still being able to use it's functionality.

Hello, I have searched for this specific question a number of times, but i just cant find an answer that relates directly to my problem. sorry if i'm dense. when I visit a site, usually a financial site but not always, and I sign in and go thru the two factor authentication, then select 'trust this website'... the next time i visit, I have to go thru the process again. it doesn't remember that we've been thrugh this already. I've reset the browser a couple of times, but I'm obviously missing the problem.

For about a year, Firefox tabs have been crashing fairly frequently (I laugh every time I send a crash report to Mozilla). Recently, these became more frequent: The tab crashes occurred several times a day, and the entire browser would crash several times a week.

(Firefox push updates sometimes crashed not only the browser but my entire Mac.)

Yesterday, I refreshed Firefox. It installed version 77. I have had some difficulty reinstalling 3 of my browser extensions, v. 77 doesn't seem to want them and I need to go through the install routine several times. It's difficult to turn the extensions on and off, too.

But that's not why I'm here. I'm here because after refreshing Firefox yesterday, yes, a Firefox tab crashed this morning.

I'm just about done spending any time troubleshooting Firefox. I don't want to go to Chrome but Firefox has become so unreliable, I may not have a choice. Mac OS 10.12.6 Sierra, Mac mini.

Very Sorry to Have to Ask - Disable Cache for Development

I made a mistake and broke my FireFox profile. I made a new profile, then copied 11 files from a backup of my profile into my new profile folder, following these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile

Most things came right back, that is very nice.

I am not certain if browser cache is disabled, which is necessary to avoid insanity while making changes to websites, which is what I do all the time. My mental defects did not prevent me finding thousands of web pages explaining how to complete this task. However, my mental defects prevented me finding any explanation created since the formation of the internet (I am estimating the internet first formed in 2008, because the dates of the answers I found indicated as such (anything before 2013 is basically the same as 2008 for internet purposes). And so, I am here to beg a moment of your time to help me resolve this risk to my mental health which will be extremely serious if caching does not discontinue its anti-social activities.

LEST YOU THINK I AM HELPLESS I found my way to about:config, entered cache into the search and up came about eighty various cache, assundry and other forms of affiliated/associated items. The list is diverse, but every item on the list has one very special thing in common with all the others, and as a group, they achieve an astonishing feat.

WHAT THESE configs HAVE IN COMMON All eighty configs produce by the procedures above have the letters c-a-c-h-e somewhere within them in that precise sequence, with no intervening or otherwise contrary letterizations.

THEIR COLLECTIVE FEAT They manage to organize themselves to perfection, including among them every single config containing the letters c-a-c-h-e in that exact order. No slackers calling in with covid or excuses of dogs eating their homework, all do their part in the roll call when its taken this way. This kind of character is exemplary and inspiring.

THE PROBLEM I attempted to calculate how many combinations of values these eighty configs can have. I got as far as determining a penny for each combination would amount to more than 400 times the gross product of economic activity since the dawn of recorded history.

STRATEGY Since trying every combination is too time consuming, my goal is to go straight to the correct config adjustment to send the cache away.

HYPOTHESIS Changing the last item on the list, marked 'cache' from TRUE to FALSE will produce the cacheless experience I must achieve in order to not impersonate a Molotov Cocktail.

The attached image shows what I have in mind. I am going ahead with experiements, but my hope is someone with knowledge will help click this thing in the way it should go.

Like, in Firefox, the full address of the website is always visible, unlike in Safari, you can hide the full address of the site in the address bar. e. g.

I just installed FF on a brand new Macbook Pro. The default theme seems really washed out when FF is the active program (i.e., the program I'm currently using). If I switch to Finder or System Preferences (or any other program), FF's tab bar darkens and becomes what I assume it should look like when it's the active program. Including screenshots of 1) what the theme preview looks like in FF preferences, 2) what it looks like when it's active, and 3) what it looks like when it's the background/non-active program. I'm also running FF default theme on my Asus, and it doesn't have the washed out problem. So is this just how it's going to look on mac? Or is something wrong?

I'm reluctant to use these notifications at all until I know what they could change without telling me.

I'm looking for a way to save a current session to restart later.

The only thing close I've seen is the "Restore Previous Session" option from the History menu. This won't work here, because what I'm hoping to do is close the windows/tabs from a session and start a different session, after which I can load the first session back.

If this isn't possible, then is there a way to combine all my windows into tabs of one window? I would only have to use the "Bookmark All Tabs" option once if I did that.

I know about dragging each tab into one window individually, but I often have more than a few tabs open in each window, so I'm hoping for some automated "Combine" function I could use.

If neither of these are possible, I'll just continue to use the "Bookmark All Tabs" option for each individual window I have open at the time... I'm just hoping for a faster or more efficient way.

Note: I use the Mac OS version of Firefox.

I am finding it difficult to turn extensions on and off in Firefox 77 extension manager. The button will not stay in the On or Off position. I have to go through this operation over and over before On or Off becomes effective.

In the prior version of Firefox, this had also been balky, but Firefox 77 seems to have kicked it up to a new level.

For example, I'm having trouble with the LastPass extension (it becomes unresponsive, cannot log in). I had to turn it off in the extension manager numerous times before the button stayed in the Off position. Yet the extension icon remained in my browser bar! What's more, I finally was able to log in when the extension was "disabled", according to the Firefox extension manager.

What is going on with Firefox and its extensions?

PS Why is it so hard to find how to start a topic in this forum?

Having a lot of trouble with LastPass extension. It will go dead -- cannot log in through browser extension, nothing happens, I have to log in at LastPass.com to see my passwords.

Used to be, I could turn the extension on and off in Firefox and it would go live again. This stopped working maybe a month or so ago. (It became difficult to turn extensions off and on, the little button just wouldn't stay in the Off position. Just refreshed to Firefox 77 and now it's even harder to turn extensions off and on.)

Then I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the LastPass extension a few times. This would work for maybe a few days, then the extension would go dead again.

I refreshed Firefox yesterday to address this problem (and Firefox's own frequent crashes); the LastPass extension worked after install but went dead overnight. Turning it off and on does not revive it.

LastPass support has been no help. Despite similar complaints from others on different OS platforms, LastPass claims it cannot replicate the problem.

It is possible LastPass just doesn't work in Firefox any more?

I am running a 2008 Imac on OS 10.11.6, and using Firefox 77.0.1 (64 bit).

Much of my work is online with one website, which I log onto daily. Today, I was unable to login because I received a "Did Not Connect. Potential Security Issue." I restarted, made sure Firefox was up to date, etc. The problem repeated.

Then I tried the website in Chrome. I got the same thing. I tried it in Safari. I got the same thing.

I called the company and spoke with tech support. He was unable to recreate my problem on his PC or his Mac. He confirmed that there was no certificate issue at the company and that they were not getting any other similar complaints or problems.

I then tried it on a Mac running 10.15, and was able to access the website easily, with no error messages.

My question is: is the problem my computer, and not the browsers or connections? Is there anything I can do short of buying a new computer?

Thanks for the help. Greg

I'm running Firefox 77.0.1 (64-bit) ["About Firefox" says it's up to date] on a MacBook Air under Catalina (System Version: macOS 10.15.4 (19E287). and trying to use the Screenshots tool. The Firefox Screenshots help page says

"To use Firefox Screenshots, click on the Page actions menu in the address bar and select  Take a Screenshot from the drop-down."

There isn't any "Page actions" menu: not in the address bar itself, not in the dropdown menu for Firefox, File, View, History (of course), Bookmarks (ditto), Tools, Window, or Help. So how do I access the Screenshots tool?

Hi everybody, I'm running Firefox 77.0 on my 2014 rMBP with OSX 10.11.6. A few hours ago my OS crashed and I reset my computer. Once I did this, I opened everything back as it was pre-crash and all my Firefox tabs and absolutely everything else loaded correctly except for my history.

Every time I type a word, no previously visited URLs will load up in my URL field, I checked my History and it seems to have deleted 99% of every site I've visited. The recently closed tabs and windows are still there, and I can reload them if I press cmd+shift+t, however the rest of my actual history seems to be gone. I've reset (normally) my computer a couple more times, repaired disk permissions and whatnot and for some reason it won't even save whatever other sites I've now visited since it was wiped. Am I screwed here?

Hello,

It's been 3 days since I can no longer play any video since Firefox Developer Edition. I added absolutely nothing and it happened suddenly. When I play a video, I hear the sound but the video loads endlessly. Same with the default HTML reader in Firefox. I tried to go to preferences and uncheck the graphics acceleration, to refresh Firefox, to reinstall it but nothing works! Even in private browsing without any extension, it does not work! I tried from another browser but it works without problems.

Thanks for your help.
