I am wanting to deploy Firefox v90 on Mac at work. I need to have the proxy set as auto for all users as some of the machines are macbooks that are taken off site.

In windows you just need to edit the mozilla.cfg and set proxy type to 4

On the Mac there only seems to be a prefs.js in the user library

Something needs to be in the application content folder...

I used to use a lot the three dots next to a webpage to share the page via airdrop (to have it/share it with my own phone or others'). Now the three dots have disappeared and, although I read here that I could do that by right clicking the page, the option for SHARE does not appear. Can you please explain how to do this now? (I use a Mac).

Found a quote here from BILL, right before the thread got closed ofc: "This is not a common problem so I don't know how to fix this apart from what jscher2000 already told you. The only other option I can see is if you uninstall and reinstall firefox and see if the problem still persists."

Actually it is a common problem. Actually there are tons of post asking directly and indirectly how to do this and you keep dodging the question. Each time you focus on the person's problem and provide an amateur fix to their local problem rather than providing a real solution like giving us the freedom specify where we want the output directed. The inet itself is full of ppl asking this question on other sites, and there are several possible solutions. Like using the windows sound settings option which is only available if your windows is up to date. Or an addon if you like sharing some info with a stranger and all his customers. And lets not forget the dude that made his own software and uploaded it to github 5 years ago, that solution certainly sounds secure right? All three, possible solutions to the problem, amateur but possible. Just like its also possible that the devs of FF are amateurs for not being able to provide the obvious solution for over 10 years now, which is to let us specify it... Or is it lazyness thats the problem? Why provide something that someone else has already provided before you in a much worse way than you would right?

Que the "did you try blablabla?", no I didnt and I wont. Oh wait that wont come because you cant answer my question with another question since I didnt tell you my problem. Now answer the simple question. I want to know how I can specify to firefox which audio output to use, not hear your... brilliant and not to say the least super safe work around.

I've googled on how to see page size, and according to Mozilla support, need to get to page info by clicking on CTRL + I and then you'll see, under "General" tab: "Page Size" in KB.

Problem starts when "Page Size" isn't shown at all (it doesn't exists.. not empty or anything). Why? and how can I see it?.

Attached screenshot of what I see.

Thank you.

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

John

I would like a phone number to call - it is too time-consuming to have to search page after page for an answer to what is likely a simple question. 1) why does the home page keep changing to marquis when I've already set my home page (numerous times by the way); 2) why is Google the only option I'm given for search engine? I already have and use DuckDuckGo and am only directed to download it, not add it as my search engine. Do I have to abandon Mozilla Firefox after so many years of use?

When you right click on bookmark folder, it used to show third option from top - ADD FOLDER now it is REMOVE FOLDER. And by clicking on it, it will not even ask if i want to do that certainely.

My long term builded muscle memory, with fact that there is absolutely no additional visual difference between these options, makes me constantly deleting one valuable folder after another.

I am furious about this. Why would firefox devs change these options? It is absolutely unnecessary!

Btw yes i know that i can redo, if i unconviniently open bookmarks window. That does not solve initial problem.

I'm finding that on Macbook Pro running Sierra or Mojave that Firefox 88 'hangs' when there is a lot of emotes in twitch.tv chat, and when I try to type I can watch the text fill in slowly after I've finished typing letter by letter. It doesn't matter if the twitch.tv streamer has 70 viewers or 3,000 viewers, the behavior is the same. I've refreshed, deleted cookies and cache, lowered the quality of the stream to 380p, used the latency slider, etc etc etc and nothing seems to be correcting the problem with chat on any given twitch.tv stream. I have 12.30 GB memory available and it's still an issue.

I need to reorder Firefox windows on the taskbar badly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also it would be useful to have custom titles. Both things should persists after PC restart. I tried couple programs, but they don't work. Devs said: position of Firefox window on the taskbar is store in Firefox and their program has no way of remembering that! Also windows get randomly shuffled each time, it is impossible to use like this. It takes me forever to find right window. It is annoying the hell out of me. How Firefox dev team doesn't fix something that basic??? This is so stupid...

Please tell me there is some solution...
