Starting today Firefox won't load any pages. Refresh did not help. Safe mode did not help. Cleared cache did not help. No problem with other browsers. When I close nonresponsive tab and reopen, I get "Gah! Your tab has crashed" message. But there are no recent crash reports in log. Firefox and antiviral software have been up-to-date for weeks without problem before this issue started. No recent software updates before this problem appeared. Full computer viral/malware scan turned up nothing. I'm not a techie, and I don't know what to do to fix this. Working on Mac OS. Can anyone help? Thank you!

One of the latest FF updates broke my workflow. (https://xkcd.com/1172/) I'm using the browser in full-screen mode all the time (13" doesn't provide that much of vertical space), and now it shots down every time I tap ESC — which, as you may imagine, I do a lot. Don't like being that guy, but this _really_ breaks the flow. Could you tell, is it 1) intentional change; 2) and configurable behavior. What can I do to revert this particular thing?

Hello, I am trying to add searx as my default search engine. Searx runs on port 8080 on my localhost therefore it's url is https://localhost:8080. I can successfully visit this url and use searx; however when I add searx using the green button to my search engine list, it strips the port resulting in an error when searching. This is very frustrating with no ability to change this setting as far as I can tell. Is there any work around for this issue?

Why am I suddenly experiencing a drop in volume on YouTube videos accessed via Firefox? It's not a problem when I access them via Safari, so it's not the fault of my sound system.

Have there been any recent changes to Firefox that would affect the sound levels on YouTube videos? (I'm up to date with Firefox, using 94.01.) I use MacOs Catalina, version 10.15.7, on a MacMini 2014 model.

I'm playing YouTube videos that I've played before many times, but now I have to turn my volume up full tilt, where I used to keep it at 'medium.' This situation has NOT happened in Safari, which still gives me full volume on these YouTube videos, so it's not the fault of my sound system. There must be a glitch, perhaps with the latest Firefox update? This has only been happening since I updated a few days ago.

Thank you for any help with this! I prefer Firefox as a browser, and don't want to shift away from it.

Cheers, Jan

I'm on an Mac Big Sur and after updating today to Firefox 94, the usual behavior of being able to click once in either the search bar or the URL block to select all the text is no longer functioning.

This is not a small inconvenience, but a major issue for me.

Do others on MacOS have this problem? Do others on other OS have it? I am assuming (hoping) that it's merely a key in about:config that's been flipped, but don't know for sure.

Any help is gratefully appreciated. Thanks.

Hi - When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark does not open. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. I can use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up to a select location after adding it and am able to select a new location. This started several days to a week ago. I don't know if it correlated with an update (or anything else). Thanks!

I am getting a four dot/pixel pattern (repeated across the screen/image) that appears across many - but not all - images and text in Firefox. Not present in other browsers. It follows the image/text when scrolling.

I am using FF91.3.0esr(64bit), a MacPro 5.1 on OS 10.13.6, ATI Radeon HD 5000 1024 MB feeding a 30" Apple Cinema Display. I see 'esr' means Extended Support Release - maybe I'm overextended?

Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

Attached are some samples...

I am using the most recent version of Firefox on a MacBook Pro Late 2013 using Mac OS Sierra, and am getting ready to export my bookmarks so that I can do a clean install. I have wasted hours on this to no avail. I export...and when I look for the file it is nowhere to be found. I tried exporting it to several disks and it simply does not disappear. This has never been a problem before, and it is discouraging me from returning to Firefox. How absolutely devilishly frustrating. Can anyone help? Thank you!

This "half-answer" summarizes my frustration. FWIW, both computers are late-model MacBook Pro - call them Mac1 and Mac2. Both have Sync set up. I have about 40 tabs open in 3 FF windows on Mac1. I need to open all 40 tabs (which can all be in one window if that's easier) on Mac2.

On Mac 2, I can see the list of open tabs from Mac1 when I click the account name (after clicking the "hamburger patties"). If I click on one of them, that tab is opened on the current tab... terrific - BUT, I don't want to repeat this 40 times!!

Is there no way to select ALL tabs, or export all open tabs to a file - or something that makes a little more sense than repeating a task 40 times?

I want to change my default home page to cnn.com. I go to Preference>Home>HomePage and New Windows, and then select the dropdown box and enter custom URL, where I enter the full URL for CNN.com. I then select General or Search (or any other option on the main left bar). Going back to Home, and it shows CNN.com as the default home page. So far so good. Exit FireFox and restart it, and now the default home page is set back FireFox home.

This should not be that difficult to just set a new homepage. What am I doing wrong? Any help would be appreciated. PS - I am on Mac, using MacOS>Monterey.

Thanks Michael
