Many bugs in Firefox 91.0 (Mac)
Macbook Pro 2018 Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 91.0 (64 bit)
I have a whole host of display issues, mainly cookie popups. Usually the cookie popup simply refuses to go.
https://tinyurl.com/app shows a blank screen.
Viewing source (command U) works first time. However if the same link loads different data, <command U> source doesn't change. The only way to display is to zap cached data.
It usually fails to display page source of RSS xml. I have to use Safari.
I have used Firefox since the year dot, mainly as my mind is programmed to it, and all the shortcut keys. Oh yes - one shortcut now is harder. <rightclick a> used to copy links. Now it is <rightclick c enter> A real pain when I am copying hundreds sometimes in a days work. I use it all the time for my work, where I view page source particularly a very great deal. However I will have to abandon it if these serious bugs are not sorted.
I have a 12" travel laptop with a very old Firefox, and it works perfectly. Too small though for day to day use!

You can reload webpage(s) and bypass the cache to refresh possibly outdated or corrupted files.
- hold down the Shift key and left-click the Reload button
- press "Ctrl + F5" or press "Ctrl + Shift + R" (Windows,Linux)
- press "Command + Shift + R" (Mac)
To cor-el: I am not talking about the main page, which is fine, and I do use <shift command R>. For some reason I didn't think of using that on the 'view:source:<url>' page. I think I overlooked that, as there was no cache on 'view-source:' pages up to a few versions ago. I can think of no reason to use a cache for the source view. I will simply keep the 'view-source:' page open and refresh that. Wouldn't it be nice if there was 'shift command U' (8-)#
Many thanks for this solution.
Of course my other issues remain.
This could be a problem with High Contrast Mode on Mac.
See "New" in the release notes.
Firefox now automatically enables High Contrast Mode when "Increase Contrast" is checked on MacOS in the Accessibility settings.
Make sure you allow pages to choose their own colors.
- Settings -> General: Fonts & Colors -> Colors: "Override the colors specified by the page with my selections above" => Never
Yes indeed I did have trouble with colour info, but I didn't report that. I had already solved it by removing Mac high contrast mode before I posted here. Also my Mac has always allowed applications to choose their own colours.
I am in the process of separating my issues (less one (8-)# ) for a bug report in the correct forum.
Thanks though for your replies. The refresh on the 'view-source:' page is already saving me a huge amount of time. I still though wonder *why* it is cached, when the main page does update. Seems very obtuse.
