Hi! After the last couple of updates to FireFox, whenever I click on a link in my email (Thunderbird), FireFox opens a new window instead of a new Tab. In my FireFox preferences, I have it set to open in Tabs not Windows. It's really annoying to have another window popping up.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! I'm using FireFox 75 and Thunderfird 68.7. Using iMac with macOS Catalina 10.15.4. 1TB SSD and 40GB of Ram.

Thanks,

Dennis

Firefox allows me to just click and enter passwords, but I like the additional layer of security that Safari offers: that I have to input my device password or scan my fingerprint in order to enter the password into the field.

Does Firefox do this? (Now that I'm asking, how about the new Edge, too?)

I have a problem with Firefox and google.com (plus all google services like gmail, gdrive, youtube etc)

When I log in to google account and work there for a few days everything is fine. I don't even close the Firefox. But suddenly every 3-7 days I see that I've log out from google account.

How can I stay logged in to google constantly?

p.s. I've tried to clear the cache, delete cookies, even reinstalled firefox. It didn't help. Another browser works fine and don't log me out.

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!

Hi,

I just tried to sign into my Gmail account after updating to the new Firefox 76. Granted, I've not signed in via Firefox for sometime since I've updated my Macbook to Catalina, its latest operating system. However, when I tried to sign on via Firefox, I keep on getting the message saying that Gmail cannot sign me in, stating that the browser or app may not be secure (I've attached a screenshot of the message I received). Please help me resolve this. Thank you.

Hello,

I've started using the Firefox Containers extensions, and I really like it. Is there a way to segregate add-ons in containers like tabs? Or maybe I'm missing some other way to do it. I'd like to use Honey sometimes for coupons and such, but I don't want to give it access to all the websites I visit, just a couple of shopping sites, like Amazon, so I can see if there are any coupons and do price tracking.

Thanks!

I display Firefox on a large external monitor, but when I maximize a web video Firefox shifts to my MacBook Pro laptop screen. Firefox fills the screen, but only a portion of the video can be seen. Also, when I press ESC to exit the maximized video, Firefox shifts back to the external monitor but the window is quite small. This is a rather new situation. What I want is for web videos that are maximized to display on my external monitor and, upon exiting maximize mode, for Firefox to revert to the window size that existed before the web video was maximized.

Note that when I maximize the Firefox window (not the video maximize control) it performs properly. Also, I don't have any of these issues when using Safari.

Will appreciate any help you can offer.

Thanks.

Hallo Zusammen

Seit geraumer Zeit ist Firefox leider sehr von der Suche auf google.com überzogen.. Um relevantere Suchergebnisse zu erhalten und mal schnell auf eine Suche nur innerhalb der Schweiz zu wechseln sollen unsere Rechner immer über google.ch suchen!

Bis vor kurzem war noch ein Add-On namens "Google ch" erhältlich, was nun nicht mehr auffindbar ist. Ein eigener Suchstring konnte ich bis jetzt auch nirgens eingeben und beim drücken des "Suchmaschine hinzufügen" Buttons, kam nur die Suchseite der Add-On's, was natürlich nicht weiterhilft..

Das ändern der Suchregion in den Einstellungen der Website ist keine Option!

Gerne kann google.com auch gleich komplett ersetzt werden. Es kommt nämlich bei der Eingabe von google im Suchfeld auch immer gleich google.com als Vorschlag obwohl diese Seite nie aufgerufen wird.. Sehr sehr mühsam das Ganze!

Besten Dank für eure Informationen wie dies behoben werden kann.

Gruss Roman

MacBook Pro 2019 MacOS 10.15x Firefox 76.0.1 64-bit I've successfully reset various hotkeys for Firefox on Mac to use ctrl (^) instead of command. To do this I used System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts where there's a section for Firefox.app. There, I've added these resets: Cut ^X Copy ^C Paste ^V Select All ^A Find in This Page... ^F All of these work, except ^V for Paste. The key combo even shows in the Firefox menu bar Edit pull-down menu. But when I have a string of text in the clipboard and use ^V nothing happens (oh, I do see a little flash of the Edit option on the Firefox toolbar any time I hit ^V, but the clipboard content isn't pasted. I still have to use command-V, which is so annoying for this long-time Windows user who has control key shortcuts burned into his muscle memory. Anyone have any idea why ^V reset isn't working?

I'm using a completely clean (reinstalled) version of firefox. I'm not logged into a profile. I'm still having the same problem.

If I go onto twitter for the first time, it loads fine and I can move around pages.

As soon as I leave the site, then return, none of the internal twitter timelines load - I get the twitter message 'something has gone wrong'.

If I delete all my cookies and revisit twitter, it works. But again, if I leave the site and come back immediately, the problem comes back and nothing loads.

Anyone experienced this/know what I can do?

Thanks

Hi,

So far I was using Brave on all my devices, but recently I tried Firefox and I really like Firefox sync which encrypts e2e my bookmarks and visited websites between all my devices,

There's one thing on Firefox desktop which doesn't work the same way as in Brave, on MacOS in Brave when I was zooming a page a clickable link on a page is in a different position than a link itself,

I especially can see it when zoomed the actual clickable area of a link is above a text, then menu appears below the point I clicked it

Comparing to Brave when zooming both areas are not synced when zooming

So far I tried with support from here to set apz.allow_zooming to true, it helped with smoother zooming, but that issue described above came up

thanks

hi

using Firefox 76.0.1 Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) iTunes 12.9.5.5

whenever i set the sound to play to my Denon receiver via Airplay, iTunes will randomly open up (usually when a new audio stream is opened). then, it seems to force play whatever was last queued.

if my music is on an external disk, iTunes will repeatedly bug that it cannot find the queued track. (end up having to force quit iTunes but issue returns.)

when i try to replicate the issue in Safari 13.1, iTunes never opens or annoys.

After switching Catalina to dark mode several parts of FF's UI seem to be broken. It seems like the browser has problems applying the correct colors to the elements, which most of the time results in poor contrast between background and text. I've noticed these problems on window titles, dialogs, tooltips and lists. Regarding the latter, the problem seems to be corrected as soon as the element is on focus, and reverts to the wrong colors when focus is lost.

Interim solution to at least improve readability is to refresh FF while on light mode, and then switch the OS back to dark mode. After this, change FF to dark mode. End result is not ideal as FF's chrome becomes dark but affected elements remain light.

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.
