Firefox opens and has a teeny tiny little address bar and tabs and everything else displays differently. I've tried making Firefox my default browser. I've tried updating twice. I've tried combing through preferences for anything that might make a difference.

Nothing works. In the picture, for reference, the Apple and menu bar at the very top are normal sized.

I'm gonna be honest, this is the LAST time I'm giving Firefox a chance. If I can fix this relatively simply, I'll do it. If it involves me needing to suddenly know how to be a software engineer and go into an obscure file in an obscure folder of an application and mess with anything that ends in .css, I'm out.

How to disable Command+D to "Bookmark This Page" in Mac?

I'm running Mojave 10.14.6 on a MacMini (late 2018) with 64 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 and Firefox v86.0 64-bit.

I need to disable Command+D that's currently used to "Bookmark This Page".

I need Command+D for another use.

I've searched about:config for "bookmark" and get a lot of hits, but I can't tell which one controls the setting for Command+D.

Or . . . am I barking up the wrong tree?

I want to disable Command+D.

Leaving the ability to mouse up and click Bookmarks > "Bookmark This Page" is ok.

I just need to disable the keyboard shortcut Command+D for "Bookmark This Page".

Anyone got a "howto" for this?

Thanks!

Is it possible to view a list of all the things that were printed within the Firefox browser? I'm not interested in browsing history-- I'm specifically after an entire list of things that were printed using a printer within Firefox. I tried looking for threads asking the same question, but it seems like everything is focused around the normal browsing history. The system is MacOS Big Sur Version 11.2.1.

I just open the email and read an article. It is absolutely disgusting.

So I'm posting this here in the hopes that others will join in.

My opinion is simple. Firefox… be a browser. Improve the browser, advance the browser, focus on new and improved features. And please stop the SJW nonsense.

Remember that "woke is broke". You're not doing so great financially. And yet you keep trying to run around playing social justice warrior. Please do better. Just stop.

One time, along time ago, I started spouting off about what I thought about social issues and politics etc. I basically got slapped upside the head and people said "we really don't care what you think. All we care about is what we're here to hear from you about. Nothing more. So stop putting out all these messages." It was a hard lesson for me to learn, but I got it.

I don't care what Mozilla or Firefox thinks about anything political or SJW nonsense. I don't care. I don't want to hear it. I sure don't want to believe that the browser of my choice is involved in all kinds of things that I don't believe in and don't want anything to do with. And worse, that you keep flapping on about it.

What I really want to know, what I really really want to know is... "What have you done for me lately." To quote Janet Jackson. What are you doing that will make my life better with this app? How will this app serve me more effectively? Not what social justice nonsense are you going to push today? I don't care what you believe not one little bit. I care how well my browser works. That's it. Nothing more.

Please stick to business. And don't try to invent that your business is social justice nonsense. It's not. That doesn't pay your bills. That just ostracizes people, alienates people and makes them wish they were to filiated with you.

Think smarter. Do better. Focus on the app. Keep your priorities straight. You are not an employment center for SJW's. You are supposed to be producing a product.

I hope someone with intelligence reads this.

Firefox 86.0 (64-bit) on macOS

When I start to type the URL for an address I use often, for example bar for barnesandnoble.com, I always get barefootyoga.com as a suggestion. I've never visited this website. It's not in my history. I have no idea what it's popping up when typing bar used to autofill barnesandnoble.

When barefootyoga pops up in the URL as a suggestion, I click SHIFT + DELETE, but barefootyoga appears the next time I type bar. (This is happening for almost all other websites where autocomplete used to work correctly--this is just one example.)

I've cleared all history for all time and restarted browser. Same result. After relaunch, I fully typed barnesandnoble.com and visited the website to get it back in history. I opened a new tab, typed bar, and barefootyoga began to autocomplete

In Preferences, I get the same unwanted result with these settings: Search > Search Suggestions > Disable/renable "Provide search suggestions" Privacy & Security > Address Bar > All check boxes selected except for search engine In about:config, I scanned options for browser.urlbar, but nothing looks like it would resolve this issue

I feel as if I am missing something obvious.

Mac 10.15.7. FIREFOX 86. Groups of bookmarks are gone. This happens regularly. Bookmarks I rebuild yesterday, that group is gone today.

The bookmarks are "there" but not in their group.  Takes hours to re-sort.

It takes a LONG time to rebuild from HTML backup. The jsn backup is ok, but it wipes everything I have done today out. I backup almost every day.

I have thousands of bookmarks = hours of work. Then I have to spend many hours rebuilding. 1/ What is happening? 2/ How to stop it?

I put "bookmarks" for the subject but that's just because none of the other options adequately describes my situation! I just got a new MacBook Air. I hate Safari, so I always use Firefox instead as my main browser on Mac. Have been doing it for years. This time, I set up Firefox the way I wanted it, with a specific home page, logged into all my sites, emails, Facebook, youtube, etc etc, and set them all on my Toolmarks bar. ... Then a couple of days later, had to re-sign in to my computer due to downloading software, and lost everything I had done on Firefox! Had to re-sign into all my accounts again as well. Set everything up on Firefox again ... couple of days later, had to re-sign into my computer to due to downloading software ... lost everything I had set up on Firefox, had to re-sign into all my accounts. I would be so appreciative if anybody could tell me why this is happening and what I can do to fix it! I really love Firefox and don't want to give it up! Talked to Apple about it and they say it's not their issue. ... Thanks so much!!

Hi, Since this morning, for some unknown reason, when I place my cursor over a text section in my browser, one or two seconds later a rectangle appears below with the same text inside (it does so with ALMOST all text, regardless of the fact that it is or isn't clickable, apparently, but it does not work with some text here and there – for instance on this very page). It does not correspond to anything I've (voluntarily) asked for, I haven't found anything in the FF settings that relates to this, and I do not think it has anything to do with the plugins I use, though it does correspond to my installing this add-on this morning: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/new-tab-suspender/. Which I've temporarily deactivated... but the popup rectangles keep appearing. Does anyone know why these popups have started appearing all of a sudden, and can anyone help me figure out how to get rid of them? Thanks in advance. Best, jpg

Is there a way to stop Firefox from suggesting/autocompleting the root URL of pages I've bookmarked? For example, say I've bookmarked https://www.mysite.com/pageone and named it "My Site - Page 1". If I start typing "my" in the URL bar, the very first suggestion is https://www.mysite.com, instead of my bookmark.

NOTE: I have disabled ALL other suggestions other than bookmarks, including common/popular sites (i.e. typing "goo" will not autocomplete with google, because I have not bookmarked any google sites)

I didn't bookmark the root URL, so I don't want it to be suggested. Any way to disable this behavior?

Thanks!

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want

The symptom is it will play the video then the screen goes blank after about 1 hour and there is a cursor moving from left to right continuously at the top. I have cleared cookies through preferences and through web developer with no effect. I believe the cookies remain in effect because only when I close the FF browser and reopen does it recover. I have "delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"

When I use another browser there is no problems. Is this a cookie problem why does play back recover when FF is closed and reopened?
