When I use Firefox on my Mac, no matter what I have tried it keeps defaulting to the dreaded Bing Search Engine. I understand it has to do with Microsoft, but I don't use any of their products because I don't like them. In settings/search I can restore the default search engines & delete Bing, but it always reverts back to insisting on using Bing again. I have followed several threads about this issue without permanent resolution. Help??

I learned the hard way about a month ago that my main bank will not work with firefox. I've now received notices from two other banks that state they only support safari on Mac. I have run into issues with some others that will either give errors but still allow me to pass through or others that state I have an unsupported browser but still allow me to log into the site - for now.

With this wide a net, this seems to be specific to the security issues in the Mac browser. Is this already being looked into? Is this specific to the new OS and firefox integration?

While I basically trust Safari, I certainly don't want to use it unless I have to and I generally use firefox exclusively on all my Macs and PCs. Can someone shine a light on this? Is there an upgrade or update planned?

Thanks

Greetings... I would like to increase the font size in right click menu box in FF 89.0 (64-bit) (see attached png)

I found a similar 2018 query here at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241117#answer-1174375

and based on that exchange I added the following to userChrome.css file

/* FONT SIZE IN RIGHT CLICK MENU BOXES 5/1/22 */

  1. mainPopupSet menuitem,
  2. mainPopupSet menu { font-size: 16pt !important; }

/* */

I closed and reopened FF. This change has no effect on the menu font no matter what font-size value I enter. Have I done something wrong?

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

Something changed a couple months ago where Firefox's spell check began only catching about half of my typos. Over the last 15 years I have become used to my browser providing spell checking services, looking for the little red lines to point out my mistakes, so now that this feature has stopped working reliably I am constantly submitting items with embarrassing typos, having to go back and edit almost every single post I make after the fact. Is there any way to get this working properly again? Thanks.

Hi there,

I just started a seldom-used FF profile to have it synced (you lose FF sync connection if you don't log in within 2 months, I think…). I set up my account for decent security: 2FA, wrote down the recovery key and recovery codes.

As I changed the password recently (didn't re-generate said recovery strings), I expected the disconnected state, all right. So I proceed on entering my new password, and out of curiosity, decide to make as if I didn't have the 2nd factor on hand

The Firefox Sync dialog page now asks me for a "Recovery code" that's 10 digits long. To my great surprise, none of those I saved when first setting up the account worked! I know I didn't use any of them.

More, the terminology had me confused: when is a recovery key used vs. code? Both files contain "Recovery codes" in their name, besides, a "digit" is: "1 any of the numerals from 0 to 9, especially when forming part of a number." Nowhere in Firefox Sync a string of 10 "digits" generated: the "recovery key" is 32 character long, in 8 sets of 4 characters, and the "recovery codes", as I understood it, 10 "character" long (and there are 8 of them), number and letters, so not digits.

Why none of my codes worked? Would have it been necessary to generate a new set after changing password?

For years, it was possible to click "restore previous session" to get back all one's tabs after some problem. Now it's gone. Have you seen the hundreds and hundreds of people putting this question into Help? With no answers? Has this feature been unwisely removed with the latest upgrade, or hidden somewhere completely unintuitive?

I want to know what caused the Firefox icon to disappear from my dock and be replaced by the generic icon. Firefox seems to continue to work well. I don't want to re-install it when it seems to work. However, I want to know what caused this to happen and if there is an easy way to restore it to the unique icon. I've read about the various remedies but don't want to take the time for a re-install when everything seems to be working.

Please just tell me the cause and if there is an easy solution.

ReCAPTCHA doesn't load on some Firefox (v100.0.2) pages (& sometimes a 'Pay Now' button or similar)

Dear Firefoxers,

Over the last year or so, I've had to switch to Chrome to load some pages properly. reCAPTCHA is proving to be a particular problem - which I'm told is powered by Google? I could be blocking Google content too much within my Firefox browser?

My wife is a long-term Chrome fan and says, "I don't know why you bother with Firefox, Chrome is much better", but I rebuke and say, "No! It's been great over the years, I've been using it since 2003".

Do I need to change my settings somewhere? At times certain pages don't load - it'll say 'Click Verify; or something similar and the 'Verify' button doesn't appear - I load the same page in Chrome, and boom, it's all there.

Am I doing something wrong with Firefox? I have version 100.0.2 (64-bit). Or is it time to give in to the mighty Google and go to Chrome after loyally using Firefox/Mozilla since 2003? (A daft thing to ask on a Firefox forum, I know!).

Many thanks if you can help or advise.

Is there a way to disable the keyboard shortcut Command-Shift-Delete on MacBook so it doesn't open the clear cache dialogue box? I use this keyboard shortcut all the time to empty my trash; I've occasionally accidentally triggered it in Firefox when I was really just trying to empty my trash.

I need to access Canvas as part of my school coursework. As of yesterday, Canvas refuses to load in Firefox. I've restarted my Mac, made sure Firefox is up to date, and tried running Canvas in Chrome, where it worked just fine. My internet connection is also stable. All other websites seem to be working in Firefox, but for some reason Canvas doesn't load after any amount of time and the interface appears as the attached image. Any help? Firefox is my preferred browser and I actually cannot do any online coursework without Canvas, so any suggestions or advice are very welcome.

On the opening splash page (when a new window has been opened) upper-center is the large firefox icon, then below that is the search dialog box, then below that is a series of icons (for me now, there are 8 of them). How do I add icons to this? I know how to remove, but I can't see a way to add the icons I use constantly.

I do work that necessitates I have quite a few applications open. Often, I will slide one out of the way to get to another. It would be really great if we could pick up and slide the Firefox app anywhere along the top of the tool bar instead of just at the ends. It seems it would be such a simple fix to end something so frustrating. Just give us a little room around the open windows tabs to grab the app and slide it into or out of position.

Thanks
