I am using OSX and every single browser has this functionality as default except for Firefox. It cripples me from going to the beginning or to the end of the line. Can someone help me change these keyboard shortcuts to make them work as intended? I don't care if it invalidates other controls that are assigned to these keys (Cmd + Left/Right Arrow).

Thank you!

I got a pop up on Firefox that said there was an urgent update I installed it once not knowing any better that it was done internally (I like watching for malware and Trojans so I know but I had never seen it before so I thought nothing of it) and then it kept coming up and I ignored it but it's been getting annoying

Firefox browser worked perfectly with my iMac 27" with Snow Leopard. After upgrading to Sierra 10.12, Firefox will not open. I downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox from your site, which states that it will automatically determine compatibility with my operating system.

Interestingly, when I click on Firefox, there is no response, no "Firefox" on the top left of the screen next to the small Apple logo, and no Firefox page, nota. Yet when I bring up the "Force Quit" box, Firefox is listed as if it is open and you can click on it to make it "quit".

BTW, Google Chrome and Safari are working perfectly with Sierra.

Please help me get my Firefox back. Thanks,

When I open Firefox, a window comes up that reads "Authentication Required". It encourages me to phone "Microsoft Help Desk" (I work on a Mac - fully updated OS) and give them my username and password. There are "cancel" and "ok" buttons which start a man's voice saying "virus detected" or some such. It just will not stop. The buttons are totally ineffective. The only way to get rid of the message is to do a shutdown and restart. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it from the Mozilla web site. But as soon as I try to start Firefox it does the same thing. I have not deleted my Profile folder because that may not even do the trick. Does anyone have experience with this problem and how to get rid of it? I am writing this from Safari. Thanks DSBPenna

I noticed a couple of weeka ago my MB Pro was acting up ,bad response ,slow , generally getting bad results then I noticed stormygreatz.com was appearing in the Search URL window every time I logged on to Firefox . I googled it and found out what it was .I then went on a search to find it ,I did , deleted the Ikons to trash, then immediately deleted trash, since then, no Ikons in Apps or Extensions. Today I noticed it was back ,or it never went away ,I don't use FFox a lot .Checked for Ikons none to be found .So I deleted all cookies and browser info ...still there .After spending 2 hours trying and failing to track down where it is hidden, I gave up . I would be grateful for any assistence you can offer before I Uninstall Firefox . Thank You .Niall Madden
