I have a 2007 iMac and need a version of Firefox that will operate on MAC OS10.5.8

To be clear: I am NOT trying to update the computer. It is end-of-life. I just want to use it as a spare and have internet access.

I have checked against other web browsers and only happens in Mozilla, within the last few weeks. I checked on multiple computers, still having the following problem. I use workspace by go daddy for my online email. I click on compose and the expected window pops to create the email message. When I get to the subject line. every time i use a space bar after typing in a word, the cursor automatically moves to the beginning of the line. This happens each time I type a new word in the subject line. NO other issue in to, cc, bcc, or main message body. This only happens at the end of the subject line. If i type in the middle with characters already on either side, the space bar does not reset.

Go Daddy tech support says it sounds like a browser problem

Thank you, Dr Steve

There are some messages that I want TB to reopen on startup, in tabs that were open when I closed TB. Until the latest update, it did this, now it always forgets them.

I found an answer in archived question "Email account stuck on Drafts and can't get to Inbox etx" https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1280765#question-reply, but that requires getting into Troubleshoot mode to correct it. However, Troubleshoot mode will kill all add-ons etc. How do I correct the problem without losing previous work? (Better would be an update that reverses out this change.)

Hello, Can someone please tell me how to stop my "search bar" text from also showing up in my "address bar"? I have search the internet and found all of the following ways that have been suggested that have not worked.

I read that I should set the following to "false" to solve my problem.

1) keyword.enabled 2) browser.fixup.alternate.enabled 3) browser.urlbar.suggest.surches

I have also gone into the settings menu and un-checked everything I could find about suggestions or words or anything else being added to the address bar. The only thing that should show up in and address bar is................you guessed it: AN ADDRESS!  :-) Thanks so much for your help.

I really appreciate the help. Mark

Please, please, for the love of Odin, can someone PLEASE help me... Asking here, is my absolute last resort. Usually, I work at finding solutions to my own problems when it comes to computer stuff like this, as it helps me to learn; but here, I'm pretty well stumped... I want to set up my Firefox Android browser to switch AUTOMATICALLY to new tabs that I have just opened from the Open link in a new tab option, found within the long-press context menu. Currently, when I select that option, the new tab opens in the background, and I get the standard New tab opened - Switch infobox/button... What I actually want however, is for Firefox to automatically switch to the newly opned tab, rather than me having to hit the Switch button before it times out, or press the tabs button on the top-right, and then select the new tab, from the tab view window.

There are few add-ons for Firefox Android in any case, and one that achieves my aim is just not there. There is also, rather irritatingly, no option to do this in Firefox-Android's settings menu... I've searched online for info that relates to any solution that can be achieved through about:config options, but I just kind find an option to do this... browser.tabs.loadInBackground seemed to be the one I needed, if set to False but my version of FF Android, doesn't have that option available.

I'm using the current version of Firefox nightly (because the standard FF Android, doesn't let you access about:config)

Can someone please help me?

Been desperately trying to get Firefox to run on my Acer Chromebook 315 through Linux. The app store version just isn't cutting it. I followed these instructions below as best as I could installing linux and flatpack. I even ran a power wash and tried again.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos

The icon comes up in my dash, but is gray and endlessly loading. Not sure what else I can do. I'm pretty my system is compatible. Is there another way? Am I missing something?

Thank you,

Several Firefox updates ago, I lost the ability to retain cookies in Firefox. The result is I have to keep signing into websites (e.g., Amazon, Facebook), rather than the websites "remembering" me, which is how it had been for years.

I keep trying to add these (and other) website to Cookies "Manage Exceptions" - but I'm unable to select "Allow". When I do, only "Allow for Sessions" is selected for each website. And even "Allow for Sessions" doesn't last. The websites are gone the next time I open Settings.

Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is selected. "Remember browsing history" IS selected.

Despite a number of updates, this problem has persisted. Please help.

Somewhen before or with 91.2.1, the default action when opening an existing email became "Edit draft message." (W10 19043, synching to GMail) That setting is nonintuitive and just wrong. A default should NEVER be an action that commits to an irreversable behavior path. Please fix.

This extremely bad design "feature" has apparently been around quite a while and generates exactly the problems returned by a search here on "delete attachments Thunderbird." I first noticed the behavior just about the time GMail introduced two-factor authentication. Maybe no connection there, but ...

Firefox is constantly removing safe extensions, re-approving them, then removing them again a couple days later. This is very frustrating, and is enough to make me permanently switch to Google Chrome, since they don't do this, and since I have to use that browser when Firefox messes with these extensions. I have been a stalwart Firefox user for years, but Firefox is pushing people like me away with this ridiculous behavior.

The best example is LastPass. Chrome seems to think it's perfectly safe, as it is not removing it. I use it and need it to be available for sites I need passwords for.

Unfortunately, however, Firefox regularly removes this essential extension and others, then, as I say, allows it again a day or two later, then removes it again.

Please, Firefox, figure this out! Otherwise, you're going to lose a lot of users and get a very bad reputation.
