hi I understand Firefox is still a browser but has added other features / functions now these extra added functions and features are causing problems for me and amongst others does not allow me access to other websites and services fex Firefox clashes with 1Password and makes it difficult to access my 1 Password account

Is there a way I can continue with Firefox as a Browzer only and delete all other functions and features added ? and that I by mistake have started saying yes to but understanding what this is all about no longer want to subscribe to As it no longer serves my purpose. greatful for a reply kind regards Ann

I have a strobe sensitivity and visual motion sensitivity, so the default Firefox settings aren't safe for me.

(For example, the default settings have flashingcursors, autoscroll, smooth scrolling, autoplay enabled, no ad blocker installed, etc.)

I can't use a new profile unless I can copy over all my existing safety and accessibility fixes. Besides about:preferences, that includes a number of fixes to about:config, userChrome.css, userContent.css, and a number of add-ons.

I am not quite sure what the Autoconfig can do, or how to set it up, but I understand I would need to manually track down and copy all my safety settings, which isn't even possible with the current about:config. And wasn't practical with the old one.

Anyway, trying to follow debugging instructions, which often involve creating new profiles, and then copying everything to these profiles so I can test them relatively safely, has gradually screwed up my Firefox installation. A lot of freezes, the url bar going unresponsive, etc.

Maybe if I can sync to a dummy location and then back I can fix this. I don't know what else I can do.

Please continue here: [/questions/1292692]
I'm using Firefox with a mac with OSX El Capitan 10.11.6. I've used it for many years, with no problem accessing streaming radio and archived radio. Now, I'm beginning to not be able to have access. I'm wondering if I need to update to a newer version but am loathe to do so for fear of unintended consequences. Any ideas?

I am having the same problem as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1459780 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1479607

I had accidentally deleted the email address I use from my email server before trying to sign back in to Firefox Sync. I added it back, and made sure that it works. However, it is impossible for me to sign in at all any more because I'm getting the "Your Email was just Returned. Mistyped Email?" error.

Please remove my email address from the bounce list so that I can sign in.

Hi and hello!

I am on a Macbook Pro laptop from 2015

Whenever I attempt to view something off Netflix I keep getting error code F7121-3078 :(

Similarly, when I attempt to view Amazon Prime Video it says "We're experiencing a problem playing this video."

I followed instructions, I updated my mac itself to Catalina 10.15.3 and reinstalled Firefox so it should be 100% up to date.

still didn't work.

I read somewhere in this forum from a January post if I open Firefox in 32 bit mode after selecting command + i that it should work but I didn't have that option. I opted for the low resolution setting I saw and not only do the videos still not play but now it looks like I need glasses more than I really do :p I'll be changing that back asap.

What's the vibe check on this? Is there a resolution or a possible ETA of a resolution? Anything?

Any info would be grand!
