macOS has built in text subsitituion for when typing on keyboard. Firefox doesnt respect it, any workarounds to make it work?
Text substitution (System prefs in macOS) is a great way of quickly adding oft repeated phrases and unicode glyphs that aren't easily accessible on the keyboard. Eg GWP₁₀₀ or m² which seeing as I'm typing this in Firefox not Safari or Chrome I have to copy and paste from the system prefs. Not sure why Mozilla in their wisedom ignore macOS software conventions and frameworks in implementing text? Is there an extension that adds this standard macOS feature back into Firefox? Is there some way to Feature Request it from the programming community who write the FF source code or extensions. See image for a few of the text substitutions I use regularly.

To my knowledge, the extension does not exist but all APIs are available for it to be created
Thanks. Why can't Firefox integrate into the main macOS and iOS versions of Firefox I sent the devs feedback.
One of my substitutions is HS = Hi Scott (former boss) thought you'd smile.
