I've installed Firefox on my MacBook Air laptop, but every time I turn off my computer, the icon to access Firefox disappears from my shortcuts bar and I have to go back to my downloads folder, double click on the "Firefox 75.0.dmg" file and re-install Firefox. Meanwhile, all my bookmarks on Firefox are lost and have to start everything anew like a new customer each day. My membership email is the only thing that is retained therefore day-to-day. I've checked the settings and have even made Firefox my default browser but that hasn't helped. I should add that I also have Express VPN. When I add Firefox to the ExpressVPN's shortcuts, again it stays there only until I turn off the computer. Meanwhile, Google Chrome and my email icons remain on the VPN startup window and don't go away as does Firefox. Jacob

Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

Since the latest updates, I can't access at least two sites I need to go to daily. (chase.com and constantcontact.com) All other sites open fine and those two open in Chrome. I read that this is a known issue with the update. I don't understand the fixes. I just need things to work!

I have a mac with a free Avaast app running. Not aware of any firewalls.

Error says: "The connection has timed out" in both cases.

I am NOT asking to remove content from the drop down - already done. I do not want the drop down to open - at all.

On a Mac the drop down interferes with the normal entry user interface. The normal text interface is: type to move to first/last character use the up/down arrow. The dropdown interferes with this standard behavior. The up/down arrow will not move the cursor to the first/last character in the url - until/ or unless the user hits <esc> to close the dropdown.

I have looked at the browser.urlbar preferences and do not see a setting that will change this behavior.

Is there a way to do this, so that url entry is doen entirely in the url bar - and not in the drop down. (and before this is discussed - I do Not want to have Any type ahead/lookup done on the urls entered, and have already disabled all of these options, so there is no need for the dropdown).

Thank you Mac OS X 10.13.6 FF 81.0

TL;DR - I typed into my "search the web" bar on my start/default Firefox tab and was taken to Startpage.com - English. I never installed this.

Today, after checking email and finding several suspicious/scam emails (I NEVER click on links in emails) I was surprised to find that when I went to search for something using Firefox I was taken to Startpage.com - English (this is how it is listed in my preferences.

I have no idea how it was installed but I was surprised because of all the protections that Firefox offers.

Anyone had any experience with this?

Thank you,

I am creating a policies.json file to block all Add ons except ones specified specifically.

I have figured out how to do this for normal extensions, but I have run into issues when applying the same principle to themes. What am I doing wrong? Here is my sample code that works to allow the ublock add on, no problem, but it is not working to allow the matte-black-red theme:

{

 "policies": {
   "ExtensionSettings": {
     "*": {
       "blocked_install_message": "Error message to display",
       "install_sources": [
         "https://addons.mozilla.org/"
       ],
       "installation_mode": "blocked"
     },
     "uBlock0@raymondhill.net": {
       "install_url": "https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/latest/ublock-origin/latest.xpi",
       "installation_mode": "allowed"
     },
     "{a7589411-c5f6-41cf-8bdc-f66527d9d930}.xpi": {

Need help configuring Firefox exceptions for Cookies and Other site Data so sites like the NY Times can remember me so I don't have to log-in to them multiple times per day.

I've even deleted Firefox and started over, but that did not resolve the issue.

I need an expert in this to help me as I'm just not getting it...though I have tried many different configurations of FireFox's settings.

Firefox sync has not been working for me for some time, and I'd like to get it operational again. I'm trying to sync between a Mac Pro (FF 81.0.2), a MacBook Pro (FF 81.0.2) and an iPhone 6 (FF Daylight 29.0). Nothing whatsover syncs.

So far, I've updated all browsers, and re-paired the iPhone with the QR code. I've also logged out of my FF accounts at the same time on all devices, and back in again. (That's what's recommended at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-sync-troubleshooting-and-tips#w_i-set-up-firefox-sync-but-nothing-is-syncing, though that links to a page that is said to be out of date).

I can't see any obvious errors in the computer names, or anything else.

Any suggestion for further investigation, please?
