Not using Firefox as a default browser

Hi,

I am using Firefox as an additional browser - no probs there, except when I have to shut down and log in. At this point, I have to go through the whole log in process.

Is there anything to shortcut the process ?

TIA

Is this about using Firefox on a desktop device ?

Make sure you install Firefox properly and that you do not run Firefox from within the DMG (Disk Image) file.

Open the Firefox Disk Image file and drag the Firefox application to the Applications folder on your hard drive. You shouldn't double-click the Firefox application to run it from the Disk Image, but instead drag it out of the DMG folder.

Hi gfs11, please ignore the unofficial support solicitation that someone posted. We have no idea where that leads and don't want you to get scammed.
