You used to be able to "Paste and Match Style" by either right-clicking and selecting "Paste and Match Style" or by pressing cmd+shift+v. This seems to have gone away in recent versions. I don't use it too often, so I'm not 100% sure when this change was made, but it is not there in the latest version. This is essentially required when pasting from certain apps into a rich text editor on a website. OneNote, for example, requires this. Now if I want to copy something from OneNote into a rich text editor (like a GitHub issue or Stackoverflow answer) in Firefox, I have to first paste it into a text editor and then copy again to paste it in the browser.

I'm attaching two screenshots one of the context menu when pasting into the body of a GitHub issue in Firefox from OneNote and another of the context menu while doing the same thing in Chrome.

Is this expected? It seems odd to remove the feature when it makes working between other widely-used apps difficult.

I'm running MacOS Ventura 13.2 on a M2 Macbook and Firefox 109.0

I can not select a Downloads folder and even if "Always Ask" is set, all Downloads of all types fail immediately.

See quick screenshare here: https://www.loom.com/share/c5bc3563630f4d1182199ee7787e32f4

I've tried many of the common things: uninstalled/reinstalled start with add-ons disabled refreshed

None of them solved the issue.

Any thoughts/insights?

Thanks!

Hey, guys!

Does Firefox provides us with an option to group the tabs. I tried finding it in Firefox Tab's content menu and Settings but couldn't. I tried the Simple Tab Groups add-on but didn't like it. I want to groups the tabs and want them in the tabs section just like How Google Chrome does it?

Thanks!

Hello! I have been using Bitwarden extension on MAC since I set it up more than a year ago. Bitwarden is installed on Raspberry Pi server and uses self-signed certificate. The other day I logged off and currently I am not able to login with the same username and master password. I tried many ways to get to my vault but get message saying my username or password is not correct. In the same time I can get access to my Bitwarden data over web interface with the same credentials. Regards, Alex

Some sites offer separate links for viewing and downloading. (I'm specifically interested in PDF files, but I think this question is more general.) I'm not sure how this distinction is communicated to Firefox—I'm guessing in the MIME type? But regardless of the mechanism, Firefox does not seem to offer any obvious settings that distinguish between the two cases. Are there ways to distinguish in less obvious places, such as about:config?

As a specific example: currently on a certain site when I click "View" the PDF is displayed in Firefox, and when I click "Download" the PDF is both placed in my Downloads folder and displayed in Firefox. I would prefer that the "Download" link only cause the download, and not cause the display. How can I change this without breaking the "View" links?

Hi! I am hiding the toolbar when browsing web pages to maximize the screen spaces. However, when playing full-screen videos (all HTML5 videos), the lowest part of the video are missing. It seems like that part are squeezed out of the screen. If I uncheck the "hide toolbar" function, it fixed. See the lowest part of the attached image.

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

Firefox keeps suggesting Twitter when I type "tw" no matter what I do

Every time I want to go to twitch.tv and type "tw" in the address bar, Twitter is the first suggestion. I don't want to go to Twitter. I've followed all the instructions in this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions#firefox:mac:fx109 and still the problem persists.

When I use shift delete, it does remove the suggestion, but then as soon as I add an i (making "twi"), Twitter is back at the top again. I've deleted every instance of Twitter in my history/cookies/cache and it keeps doing this.

Why can't Firefox prioritize a website I visit daily and have several bookmarks of (Twitch) over promoting a website I do not want to visit? Please fix this.

Dear all,

The icons for "Always open this in a Container" or "Toggle reader view" or "Bookmark this page" are missing, not their functionalities (I can blindly click on them).. but no icons, I tried to reset the Customization of my bar (brrrrr I lost all my extensions icons and orders!! uarggh) but no luck for me.

It is quite annoing since I have to wait the popup otherwise I cannot remember where are exactly the icons..

Could anyone help me please?

Thank you in advance, FrAg

Impossible to create a shortcut of a web-page on desktop or a folder by drag-&-drop on Mac

Hi, I'm having this very annoying problem with Firefox (v109.9) on my MAC (macBook Pro 2020 - macOS Monterey v12.6). I used to do this (and actually still successfully doing it, on another MAC machine) to create a web page shortcut on the desktop or in a folder, by drag and drop, but it's impossible for me to do it on this machine and I can't figure out what could be the problem.

After clicking on the padlock icon, to the left of the address bar, I can easily drag it to the destination I prefer (eg a folder) but when I release the mouse button the operation doesn't work. Unlike what happens in the other MAC machine, doing the same operation, the button does not turn into the green "+" icon and suddenly disappears, without doing anything and without giving me any warning.

I've tried reading suggestions on the web, but haven't found anything that really gives me a solution. Could it be one of my browser's security settings? Please, please, could you help me? I need this feature very often, so if I don't fix this soon I will be forced to switch browsers.

Thank you very much for you attention! Lu

I am using Firefox 109 on my MacBook Pro (M1 chip), and after I upgraded to version 109, the application menu stopped working. When I click on the pancake icon in the upper right corner of the screen, the drop down menu becomes visible, but none of the items on the list are responsive. Fortunately, I can access passwords and the like by going to preferences under the Firefox menu on the left of the screen, but it's less convenient. Can I fix this on my own, or do I need to wait for the next upgrade?

Hello to the support team of Mozilla, I had a computer that cannot be reopened due to a virus and Malware. However, I have a bookmarks setting with Firefox that has not been imported. I did not have an account (or at least that I can remember) with Firefox. I just set up one today. I had written that I had an account under the username jackhsiao, but I was not able to log in.

I would like to know if I can import my bookmarks that were on the browser of my computer that I can no longer access.

Thank you,
