Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

I have a paid subscriiption to NFL Game Pass which I access through Firefox. Two years ago I was in Monaco during the NFL season and I tried to sign in to my NFL account from there. I was blocked because I was advised that I was signing in from a foreign country. Now I live in Southern California but I am still being told by the NFL website that I am trying to sign in from a foreign country. Is this history something I can clear out of my history through Firefox? I have not found anyway to speak to the NFL about this.

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

Firefox is crashing when using Google MapsStreet Views and when a 3-D picture is loaded in Facebook.

When running in Safe Mode, Google Street Views will function and a Facebook page with '3-D' picture won't crash the browser. This started with the last couple of updates - we're using version 94.0.2 64bit. We check with Safari

Hello everyone

I recently used i2p, and installed the i2p plugin in my Firefox. He broke a lot of settings for me (related to privacy, I think). Interestingly, it broke on all my desktop devices (macbook, iMac, windows pc). After installing and removing the plugin, the following happened: - websites open in English (native to the system - Russian) - websites open in a light theme (native to the system - dark) - Firefox starts in a window not on the full screen (for the inability to track the screen resolution, I understand) - [the most important] interfaces, some web applications began to look blurry (e.g., Google sheets, or Yandex Maps). When I open the same services in Google Chrome, everything is displayed perfectly.

How do I clean the browser settings that came with the i2p plugin?

I've already tried: - Cleaning Firefox - Safe mode - Clearing the startup cache - Complete reinstallation

None of this helped.

I love Firefox, I don't want to switch to Chrome. Help, please)

I have a duplicate Firefox account that I would like to close.

I forgot the password for this account, and when I go to https://accounts.firefox.com/reset_password to reset it, I enter my email address for the account I'd like to log into and it fails every time with the message "Primary account email required for reset".

The API response includes the error message "Reset password with this email type is not currently supported".

My account email address ends in @hey.com. Is this domain not allowed for password resets?

Hello All:

I want to import my bookmarks from Safari to Firefox but strange things are happening.

I go to the File menu, scroll down to "Import From Another Browser" and select "Safari."

I click OK and Firefox works for a while and then says it's done with the import.

However, when I then go to "Manage Bookmarks" in Firefox I can't find any of the folders from Safari!

The weird thing is, those bookmarks are SOMEWHERE in Firefox, because when I search for a particular bookmark which I know was originally in Safari but NOT Firefox (some rather obscure website) IT DOES APPEAR IN THE FIREFOX SEARCH!

I've done this with about 10 websites, so I know they exist somewhere in Firefox.

But none of the folders where they originally resided in Safari seem to appear in Firefox. The only way I seem to be able to access those bookmarks is to go to the Search bar and search for them.

Does anyone have any thoughts about how I can find the folders imported from Safari?

Thanks!

Dear Mozilla volunteer! I recently experience regular crashes of FireFox version 94.02 under MacOS Monterey. I have removed some add-ons and also "probleemoplossingsmodus" did not help. Furthermore I uploaded various crashreports.

Where can I find help to solve this problem? Or is MacOS 12.01 the culprit and do I have to wait for an update from Apple?

Thanks for tour reaction! Kind regards, Miel van Hutten The Netherlands

Hi there!

Certain pages show up blank or completely black in Firefox. This occured since after I got a new iMac with the M1 chip.

All pages work fine in Safari and Chrome.

www.facebook.com and www.duolingo.com show up completely blank. www.pinterest.com is visible but does not work as intended.

These pages DO work in Private/Incognito mode.

I have cleared all browsing history and upgraded to Monterey and Firefox 94.0.2.

11.27.21

iMac - OS10.11.6 El Capitan - Firefox 78.15

I have spent hours searching internet and Mozilla support. Nothing. All I want to do is switch my sign in accounts. I have two. Firefox confirms this. When I go into Accounts, following existing procedures to establish a second sign in, I type in second email with response telling me this account already exists. I know that. I can even see it in the Passwords/Accounts section.

But nothing, nothing appears anywhere telling me how I can simply switch from existing sign in to the other. Nothing.

If anyone at Firefox would care to explain the secret, I would appreciate it so I can stop wasting time searching this solution.

Don't use euphemisms like some instructions do which only confuse simple answers. Please simply state Step 1, Step 2 etc

One such support page said something like select one account and click "Preferred" or the like. Saw nothing like this in my Account settings.

thanks Larry

duplicate of /questions/1359208 and also moved from Firefox for iOS to Firefox section as you are using Firefox on a Mac.


I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?
