Firefox has arranged my extensions alphabetically. I would prefer to group them functionally, or at least be able to separate those which have similar colors -- for example, Grammarly and Evernote are both green and I sometimes click on one when I want the other. I would also like to have the one I use most at the far right of the toolbar.

This is a minor issue, but it's really annoying me. I like having certain pages pinned on the page that opens when I open a new tab; it's easier than always having to search through my many bookmarks for pages I use every day. But I find it really annoying and unhelpful – and also embarrassing, if another person is there – that Firefox only allows me to do this if I also allow it to display sites I've visited. The two should be completely separate in my opinion, like on Chrome. I can delete individual sites, but they're just replaced with other, even less relevant ones. So now I have a blank, useless new tab page, instead of a helpful one that shows me the sites I need to get to, because I don't want to risk a coworker, friend, or family member randomly seeing whatever sites I may have visited once or twice months ago. (This doesn't have to be extreme (porn, etc) to be embarrassing; I don't necessarily want people to see that I've been shopping for jewelry or hair dye or whatever.) It's just unprofessional and unnecessary. Thanks for fielding my complaint.

I have been using Firefox as my main browser for a while and I like it.

I have noticed that some interactive parts on some websites are missing when using Firefox. On the other hand, when using Google Chrome everything works fine.

I am attaching 2 screenshots showing that the button "Start the Chat" is missing when using the Firefox browser compared to when using Google Chrome.

Why is that?

Hello. I want to save my username in websites but not password, so I ended up saving the real username and a fake pwd (and I type it manually everytime I want to login). Is there a way for disabling Firefox asking to update the saved password (but keeping the 'fake' pwd saved)? Thanks.

duplicate of /questions/1359208 and also moved from Firefox for iOS to Firefox section as you are using Firefox on a Mac.


I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?

Hello, I have a long lasting issue of logging in to my Sony PSN account on Firefox on iOS. When I try to log in, following message (in Czech) shows: Připojení k serveru se nepodařilo navázat (18.758f1402.1637667594.2a7e98ef). It translates something like "Connection to the server was not possible to achieve." The issue is confirmed on Mozilla as on Chrome on the same Mac I do not have this problem. Also I can log throu android app, or Mozilla on android. So Mozilla for iOS is the only one causing the issue. Thank ou for looking into it. If necessary I am available for further questioning or help with investigation. Michal

2. It is also giving me a page that I use everyday not upload all the way which has never happened to me before. I attached a photo of what that page looks like.

I have time machine and regular backups.

I'm using Firefox 94.0.1 on MacOS 12.0.1. When I visit www.tangerine.ca I see a screen that looks similar to a mobile device layout (attached). Not exactly the same, but containing elements such as the hamburger menu and others that don't normally appear on this page.

When I visit the same site on the same computer using the same browser in private viewing mode it displays correctly. It also displays correctly on other computers and using other browsers. The problem is isolated to Firefox in normal mode on one specific computer.

I've deleted all cookies and cleared the cache entries for the site but the problem persists.

Note that "Responsive Design Mode" is off.

Any ideas what is being cached/used to cause this? There must be one more piece of information that I need to find and remove.

The Home page icon only appears in the tool bar of the page I've designated as the Home Page. As soon as I click a link on that page, the icon disappears. The only way I can get the home page back is the create a new tab/window. Earlier versions of Firefox on other machines in the house don't have this problem. Not acceptable.

Copy text from address bar (not the URL of the current page)

Looks like this question was asked twice before with no response:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354750

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331182

I frequently paste text into the address bar to copy it and paste somewhere else. This is very useful for a variety of reasons (e.g. speed, strips text of formatting) but for some reason a recent Firefox update makes it so if you paste text into the address bar and then copy it, you will actually have copied the current page's URL - not the intended copy.

How do we reverse this unexpected and undesirable behavior?

Starting this AM, Instagram won't load (MacOS 11.6; Firefox 94.0.1) -I just get a greyed out IG icon. The problem does not happen either on Firefox Mobile or on Safari, or on any other website I've tried on the Mac.. The very first time I tried this morning I got an error message about some technical problem with connecting, but now don't even get that. I have closed and restarted Firefox and rebooted the Mac. (Also turned off any adBlockers -- although when Firefox *thinks* it's finished loading IG there are no ad servers or trackers shown.)

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!
