Relatively minor problem, but: lately, if I enter text too quickly after opening a new tab, the text that I entered into the search bar gets deleted. Maybe half a second or so after opening the tab, this stops and the text enters normally. But, this is frustrating for navigating or searching from new tabs.

Any way to fix this? I am using Firefox 80.0.1 on a Mac. I am also using the Tabliss extension, if that matters.

Mozilla recently launched RegretsReporter to track problems with Youtube's recommendation algorithm.

Here're the explanations I've found:

None of these discuss whether users should address lesser-known problems with Youtube recommendations, such as when they recommend seizure triggers which lack seizure warnings.

Home & End Keys not working in Address & Search bar (macOS)

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection."

With Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS 10.13.6 attempting to use Firefox->Services->New TextEdit Window Containing Selection on a bit of selected text in a web page consistently returns the error: "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection. There might be an internal error or a performance problem, or the source application may be providing text of invalid type in the service request. Please try the operation a second time. If that doesn’t work, copy/paste the selection into TextEdit."

This works in Safari and Chrome, so I am confused and frustrated that it does not seem to work in Firefox.

Could this be a bug in Firefox? Unfortunately, I don't know how to read or wrote computer code. All I know is that this doesn't work for me.

Why Mozilla-Developer-Network/MDN Needs Access Into My GitHub Or Google Account To Login !? & Why MDN Does Not Allow To Use Mozilla Account Based Login ? isn't it Violation Of Privacy ?

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.

I just downloaded the Safari 14 update for my Mac. After rebooting, Firefox would not load. The icon was in my dock, but when clicked nothing happened. It also affected all my extensions. I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue. I had to restore my Mac to an older version and it solved the problem. Is it Safari 14?
