I recently updated to the 2021 MacBook Pro with the notch. In full screen mode earlier, firefox lowers the tab bar when the menu bar was made visible. In the newer notch models, themenu bas resides besides the notch, so a blank abr appears in place of it. I have tried messing in the config page but coulnt fix it. Any help?

Your system has run out of application memory

On a MacBook Air with MacOS Monterey 12.1, I use Firefox 96.0.2 and Thunderbird 91.5.0. I bought this MacBook in October 2021, with 16 GB of unified RAM and 1 TB of main memory, of which 380 GB are available. Annoyingly, I get the message "Your system has run out of application memory." regularly, seriously interrupting my work, because I have to force quit Firefox and/or Thunderbird. This even happens about a day after restart.

In a typical instance, memory usage is: DeepL 67.7 MB Firefox 2.03 GB Preview 334.1 MB Thunderbird 907.4 MB Finder 75.0 MB

The answers I see on Mozilla Support do not solve my problem. In ~/Library/Application\ Support/Firefox/Profiles/aurrzm6j.default and in ~/Library/Caches/Firefox/Profiles/aurrzm6j.default, I see nothing whose name relates to Firefox.

After many and long telephone sessions with Apple Support, they conclude that my hardware, in particular the RAM module, is perfectly fine and the problem lies with lacking adaptation of the Mozilla software to the system I use.

My questions to Mozilla: Is this a known problem? Does it occur with other users as well? What is Mozilla's stand on Apple's assessment?

I very frequently open .bib files to get bibliographic information on scientific articles. The by far most convenient way to open these files, which are plain text files, is to just show them as text (either in the same tab, or a new tab). For example if you search for a publication on Google scholar, and click the quotation mark and then BiBTeX, you get the bibliographical information shown as text directly in the browser (see attached screenshot).

However, many other websites and journals instead give you a link to an actual .bib file, instead of just serving up the text. But since a .bib file is just a plain text file, it should be no problem for Firefox to display this text. However, when I go under settings and try to select default actions for .bib files, my only options are to either save the file, or open it with another application (i.e., not Firefox). For other file types, for example .pdf, it works to select Open in Firefox as the default action, but not for .bib files.

Is there a way to fix this problem?

I'm using Firefox 95.0.2 on Mac OS 12.1

Thanks, Tor
