Hello Team,

Firefox does not play well with how you customize keyboard shortcuts on Mac i.e. Go to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts.

By default - Move Cursor to Address Bar - Cmd+L Bookmark this Page - Cmd+D

I would like to switch these two shortcuts but there does not seem to be any way. Please help me out.

Thanks, Naman

Hello,

I am looking for a toolbar addon that allows shortcuts to local applications. Example, shortcuts to notepad, word, calc etc... on a toolbar (like the firefox [CTRL]+[SHIFT]+[B]-toolbar)

There are launchers and such to launch applications, but I just want a dedicated toolbar for this where I can place shortcuts to firefox tools/utilities on there.

10+ years ago there was an addon for firefox that was a simple toolbar which could handle url's, local applications...anything as long as it could be created as a shortcut on the desktop. But I can't find it anymore it probably got dis-continued.

Any suggestion is very welcome.

Thanks.

Hi,

Trying to login to access microsoft products and this works with all browsers except Firefox. I'm reduced to using Edge or Chrome... Well Chromium.

I believe this is due to MFA and it going in a loop, see the screen shot, it keeps taking me back to this page.

I know the username and password are correct, but it still loops endlessly no matter how many times i put my password in.

I've also ticked allow single sign on for MS account, i've cleared history, caches, cookies etc, even reinstalled FF thinking maybe I had ticked something somewhere but to no avail.

Please note, I am working for a business so I may not be able to provide info sensitive to the business. however this is the page it keeps redirecting to.

Any help would be appreciated.

PC / Windows 7 (yes, still) / Firefox 100.0.2 :

Past several months on Firefox, when attempting to access a video either embedded (say, in a news site or YouTube), the download is unusually slow, with such screen notices (attached) appearing.

The "gray bar" across the bottom (which, as I understand it, indicates buffering/caching activity) immediately loads up about .25%, then awaits the video to play . . . and then it sits there and goes through any combination of the attached .jpgs.

Quite often, regardless of how many tabs are open (perhaps a half dozen), the (Not Responding) message will show up, and then it's just wait it out (usually 15-45 seconds).

Any solutions / comments / directions-to-point-me-in?

Appreciated. Thank you.

When I open Firefox I usually open several tabs simultaneously. Most open. but sometimes one site gives me a Secure connection failed error, but try again always works. It tends to be the same two or three websites, but often they open fine the first try. Its annoying, but I always can connect. What might be the cause? I am using Firefox 99.0.1 (64 bit) Craig Miller

I don't want the pdf to save to disk without my will when I open a pdf file from any website. Fire Fox saves the file first, then opens it for reading. How to change it? I want to read the pdf first and then decide what to do with it. This works similarly in Edge. FF is my main browser, I wouldn't want to change that, but I have too much garbage on my disk. every pdf is saved first, completely unnecessary.

So weird, in the last few days, I've had intermittent behavior using FF.

Some examples - I log into my Gmail account, and it works for several minutes and then goes unresponsive and I can't get new mail, when I click the refresh icon or refresh the browser. - Last 3 days, when I click a hyperlink in an email, a new browser tab opens, but it's blank, the url doesn't seem to pass to the new tab - When I type a search term in browser address bar and hit enter, the tab refreshes but nothing happens... e.g. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=firefox

Troubleshooting steps tried. - Disabled all extensions - Started to uninstall FF, but got prompted to "refresh firefox" instead, which I did yesterday, but still have the same problems...

I can access Gmail and other functionality works fine on Chrome on same laptop. I've used different laptop with FF and it works fine, both machines on the same network....

Why would Firefox browser version 100 run slower on my desktop than my laptop, same version and exactly the same settings. Both are connected via Ethernet connections with 500 mbps speed. The desktop has more memory and a faster CPU than the laptop. The browsing on my desktop lags much more than my laptop.

When I run Ookla speedtest, the laptop download is 310 mbps and upload is 363 mbps.

When I run it on the desktop the download is 118 mbps and upload is 96 mbps.

Any help with this is greatly appreciated.
