So basically I like redesigning my macs look every few months and i want to add a picture to the start screen, I want to have the original one - it still saying Firefox however I want a background behind it, much like chrome. I found a solution but it involved a lot of code and doing some really confusing things so what should I do? I don't want to install any add-ons. Also if anybody find the coding solution anywhere could you please re-explain it to me? Thanks :)

When trying to access this website with Firefox 92.0 (Mac OS10.15.7), I get a message that my log in data (user ID, password) is not correct. However, using Safari my login is successful, and the same using my iPhone or iPad. I have raised the issue with the operator of the website, but thought that maybe there is something that can fix the problem directly in Firefox ??

I am up to date with my Firefox.

I find that sometimes (Easyjet booking forms for example) or recently a .pdf letter from a reputable sourcecan't be opened in Firefox, I need to use Edge for instance, and I don't like being brow beaten by Microsoft. What's to be done?

When I turn on the Windows 10 desktop computer first thing in the morning, or whenever I turn it on after it's been off, it takes several minutes to connect with Google, Yahoo, Bing. This has been happening for about three weeks. I've deleted History and cleared the cache but it doesn't prevent the same thing from happening. What else should I do?

Hi. I have been a loyal Firefox user for as long as it's been around. Today it was unresponsive. I have tried everything and it still remains unresponsive.

I felt like I should reach out because I don't want to move to Chrome, but I had no choice, since I have never used another browser. I hate to and don't want to be lost customer, but nothing worked. Scans, reinstall, etc. Nothing worked. All other programs work fine.

FF keyboard shortcut "move tab to start" (ctrl + shift + home) does not work for me. I've tried using my regular FF profile (a dozen addons or so) and a VANILLA profile with no addons. The same is true for Ctrl+Shift+End shortcut.

i've also tried on two different keyboards.

so, is it me, is the documentation wrong or is this broken?

thanks

Recently I have been seeing, what I believe is character encoding errors on many web sites.

As you can see from the attached, it appears as a series of 'ddddddddddd' but if I copy and paste that into Word or a text editor it appears correctly. Kinda random, some sites, some areas.

My Firefox automatically updates, so I do not know what version this started.

According to the release info for the latest update (Version 92.0):

"The bookmark toolbar menus on macOS now follow Firefox visual styles."

I have no idea what that means or how to fix it! All I know is that the lists of bookmarks I have saved under toolbar tabs are now all double-spaced. I don't want them double-spaced — that makes all the lists twice as long! I just want them the way they were before the update . . . HELP!!!

It is insistent.

I have found a 6 year old post that uses links that firefox no longer uses: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1092276

The instructions there no longer seem to work, I deleted cookies, closed firefox and ran CCleaner, it is still always redirecting me to .hk.

The site looks different, shitty and keeps asking me to log in or agree to some bullshit settings.

Very strange, has anyone seen this before?
