Hello,

This has been a problem every since the Firefox Quantum update, but I never asked about it. My issue basically is that when I wake my iMac from sleep, Firefox decided to use 400% of my CPU (each core = 100%), and the Mac becomes unresponsive from a second to a few minutes at worst. Generally, the longer my computer is in sleep mode for, the longer it takes for the Firefox CPU usage to die down.

Is anyone else having this problem? Thanks!

At least as recently as Developer Edition 77.0b5. Neither the keyboard shortcut nor the UI "x" button closes the mode. This is developer edition 77.0b5 on MacOS 10.14.6. For a handful of beta versions it seems inconsistent (sometimes worked sometimes didn't work) but now it seems like this happens every time. I'm not sure when I first noticed the issue.

How to unenroll from the macOS Firefox Beta and move from the beta back to release update channel?

Reinstalling the Firefox application in the macOS way (move Firefox.app from the application folder into trash and move a current (non Beta Version of) Firefox into the application folder) does not work. Firefox somehow remembers that the Beta Channel is active. It will update to the recent Beta on startup/restart.

I did not try to remove all files created by Firefox, as I do not want to loose my current profile.

While there seems to be documentation about working with multiple versions of Firefox or how to work with multiple profiles: I am not interested in installing multiple versions of Firefox simultaneously or work with multiple profiles.

I simply want to replace my Firefox Beta with the current release... (There may be a problem with profiles being not compatible with an older version of Firefox. However, I feel like it should be possible to stay on the Beta (without updating) until a newer version releases in the release channel to avoid this issue.)

There does not seem to be any documentation on how to unenroll from the Firefox Beta on macOS. (I googled / used duckduckgo a lot (I searched for a solution every now and then over the time span of multiple months) and nothing relevant turned up.)

PS: Good job on Firefox for macOS; it replaced safari (which had deprecated a lot of addons at that time) as soon as the beta with improved (macOS) battery life released (the reason why I installed a beta version.)

This is a new development. Happening on all of my Mac OSX machines. Whenever I download a file from Firefox, the downloaded file now has write permissions set for group and other:

-rw-rw-rw-

instead of the more reasonable read-only permissions for group and other:

-rw-r--r--

This is a new development: all of my downloads started displaying these fully writable permissions about a month ago. Happening on multiple computers, so this is tied to Firefox v77.

Hello,

I have a problem on using rocker gesture to change tabs. When I use it, sometime mouse pointer doesn't change on the destination page. For example, the pointer doesn't change on URL, textbox, on text and so on.

I tested some situation below; 1. If I change tabs by clicking it instead of using rocker gesture, it never happened. 2. If I change tabs by mouse wheel on tab area, it happened. 3. I cannot find regularity of it because it doesn't happen 100%. 4. I refreshed my Firefox but still happened. 5. I tested some addons (to use mouse gesture) but still happened. 6. I tried rereased firefox and beta one but still happened.

and some information is here, OS: Mac Catalina 10.15.4 Firefox: 77.0b6 Mouse: Logicool MX Master 2S

I'm sorry to terrible English,but I need your helps.

Thanks in advance,

Subsequent API fetch requests switching from http/1.1 to http/2

hi! I'm currently following a course on react developement and i'm running into an issue specifically on firefox, both normal and developer edition( normal version 76.0.1, dev version 77.0b7).

I'm using axios to fetch weather data from weatherstack, which only offers http requests to free users, using the following line: axios.get(`http://api.weatherstack.com/[...]')

the first time during runtime, when i am fetching data, the request is using protocol http/1.1, which works fine. Any further requests start using http/2 however, which results in weatherstack sending back an error message saying "Access Restricted - Your current Subscription Plan does not support HTTPS Encryption." ( but with http status 200, which is kinda weird in itself).

looking into axios, (specifically how axios.get() works) it seems they are letting the browser decide on how to handle the request, so i came here.

This works fine on chrome(Version 83.0.4103.61), sending all requests via http/1.1

now my questions am i correct in assuming this is a security feature doing this? if so, why is it not doing it on the first request? how would i go about getting this to work or should i use a different api that accepts https if i want this to work on firefox?

thanks in advance!

edit: on further investigation, this behaviour is confined within a tab, so even if you reload the site, it still uses http/2. if you open the site in a new tab, the first request works and further requests do not.

I'm running CentOS 7.8 at work and I prefer to use Firefox. However, the problem is that with CentOS, and being a work machine, Firefox doesn't normally come with codecs needed to play many online videos (such as on twitter) and my company won't install them. Having said that, the recent flatpak version of Firefox seems to have them bundled, so I installed that in user space.

It's great, except whenever I need to save a file I run into a problem. I've tried this in both KDE (4.14.8) and MATE. When the file dialog opens to save the file it doesn't have a save button, but an "Open" button instead. When I click the open button, with the default filename filled in that I'm trying to download, I get a kernel error pop up that says: "A problem has been reported in the xdg-desktop-portal-1.0.2-1.el7 package has been reported." I cant' investigate more because it wants root/sudo access to fully read the message. This happens every time I try to save anything, it's not intermittent, I'm unable to download anything. It didn't happen in the beginning, it just started a few weeks ago.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zagipygmsa8svgd/oIS4QAKxRh.mp4?dl=0

whenever you select for it to show a grid, and a ruler and when you decide to refresh or your code refreshes; those settings are lost. the behavior is a bit unstable however you can clearly see it happening in the video i recorded.

this makes the firefox developer tools completely unusable, i shouldn't have to pick up my mouse and click on the ruler and grid+grid options anytime i refresh. i already did that once, it should be kept on until i decide that i don't want that anymore.

i end up saving and switching back and forth between the editor and the browser probably 2-3 times a minute, that's a lot of extra and unnecessary clicks i will have to spend on reenabling my preferences

Dear all,

I would like to know whether there is any way to load (some/any) sidebar content (e.g., for the sidebar created by the "Notes for Firefox" extension) as a "large version" into the main browser window?

I was already able to extend the maximum size of the sidebar on one hand and on the other hand I even extracted the files of the "Notes by Firefox" extension whose sidebar I would like to have open in the main browser window. Unfortunately, just loading the "sidebar/index.html" (as this is the "default_panel" of the "sidebar_action" mentioned inside the "manifest.json" file of the "Notes by Firefox" extension) did not work as some (a lot?) of variables are not defined...

So, is there any sort of way to get some sidebar being displayed in the common browser content window? If so, please advice how to do it. Thank you!

Best regards, Patrick

I have a dual screen windows 10 system. I use both Firefox and Chrome. Chrome is set as my default browser because I use many Google apps. However, when I search the internet and open non-google programs I use Firefox. I would like to have Firefox always open on a designated screen. Is there a way I can set Firefox to always default to a designated screen.

I look forward to your answer.
