When on a website and turning Enhanced Tracking Protection OFF, there is no toggle switch to turn it back ON. There used to be. Noticed this occurred after version update from 77 to 78. May be a coincidence? Help appreciated.

Typing text into the address field triggers a search, even when the separate search field is enabled and the "address field search" is disabled in preferences

Since one of the last updates (currently using 78.0.2esr on mac), the address field doesn't behave as expected and not as it did before: For example, when I type "wiki.dtpd.loc" into the address field, Firefox should open this (local) Webpage. Instead, it triggers a Google search for the term "wiki.dtpd.loc". My Firefox is configured to show separate address and search fields, and NOT to use the address field for search suggestions, so this shouldn't happen.

It is annyoing, 'cause I can't access my local pages without alway prefixing them with http:// or https://

Is there a solution? Is it a bug?

Thanks ;-)

I created a new Drupal 8 site on my Mac (MacOS 10.15.5), using MAMP to test locally. I'd been using a self-signed SSL certificate, and yesterday purchased a Comodo PositiveSSL Multi-Domain (DV) cert. The site comes up fine in Safari and Chrome with the new cert, but Firefox (78.0.2) is still looking at the cold cert. I've tried clearing all caches, clearing the history cache, even rebooting; nothing seems to help. Is the old one being cached somewhere?

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!

For years, I've clicked on PDFs online and they've opened in a browser window. Then, if I wanted a copy, I downloaded it. Suddenly, this doesn't happen. It doesn't open, it just goes straight to download. I've changed no settings. Other browsers open the PDFs in question. What happened and how do I fix it. I'm running Firefox 78.0.2 (64-bit) on a 2017 iMac running 10.14.6. Thanks.

Is there a way to increase the height of the Tab bar so you can drag the window around without opening tabs or dragging a tab into a new window?

The FF tab bar is so small that it's impossible to grab the window and move it, like to look at something hidden underneath it or make room for another window or app or whatever. The only places I can see to grab the window without accidentally opening tabs or dragging the tab off the tab bar into a new window are at each far end of the tab bar. So you have to decide which way you want to move the window and choose the appropriate end of the tab bar. Compared to Chrome, the FF tab bar is really skinny - even though the difference is only about 1/16 or 1/8 inch, that small difference is enough in Chrome to grab the window where you want and drag it without opening the tab right below where you're grabbing. I hope this description makes sense - hard to put it into words.

I'm on an iMac running mac OS Catalina (version 10.15.5). Using Firefox (78.0.2) the Centriq login page (https://app.mycentriq.com/) has stopped loading recently. Firefox has been updated since I last logged in successfully. The login page does properly load using Safari web browser. So, I believe something has changed with the recent Firefox update that is preventing the Centriq login page to load. The one thing I have tried, but did not work, is to turn off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the login page. All help is appreciated. Thank you.

I can't get spellcheck to work. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. This is true even when using a box with multiple lines.

I have ticked the box in preferences that says Check your spelling as you type. I have a language chosen - English (United Kingdom). I tried installing a different dictionary in Add-ons, but it made no difference.

I've gone into about:config and adjusted the settings in layout.spellcheckDefault and checked services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault, which made no difference.

I've read posts that say to right click and look at the dictionaries, but this doesn't work for me (could be because I'm using a Mac). Same with pressing Control.

Any thoughts?
