My wife keeps getting a popup message, "Can't update Firefox to the latest version. Download a fresh copy and we'll help you install it." But she has the latest version, she has automatic updates, and when she downloads and installs it manually, it's the same version as before, and she keeps getting the popup message.

She has MacBook Pro, 13" using the Mojave OS Version 10.14.6, Firefox version 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Some of the bookmarks I have on the toolbar will open the web page automatically and some will not. For example, if I click one site it goes right to my summary page without logging in. If I click on another it goes to the log in page. The user name & password auto-fills but how can I get these sites to open automatically when from the short cut in the toolbar.

Could it be a Windows 10 issue? I didn't seem to have this problem with the old Edge browser but now I get the same thing in the new Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.

Hello, all...

I'm running Solus 4.1 with the 5.6.18-155 kernel on my Asus UX330UAR and Firefox Nightly 79.0a1 (2020-06-26) (64-bit). Currently, I used Android Messages for Web via a "webapp" in Brave and am provided a "desktop icon" for that window; however, I'd much rather use my default Firefox and just discovered the "browser.ssb.enabled" setting.

The "trouble" is doing so does not provide any icon to launch by itself; that is, I must be already in Firefox to use the "App Mode."

Any ideas on how to accomplish this dream?

Thanks for any ideas!

I would like to restrict which extensions can access data / run on which web sites. For instance I would like to restrict all extensions when I am using my bank's website, I would allow add blocking on all sites but I would not allow extensions that access my data on ebay, paypal, gmail, etc. Is there a way to do this per extension and per web site?

How can I change the font size of tabs and menu?

I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.

Hello, I link many items to Pinterest from my page. In the past, when I clicked the Pinterest button, the new window would open up in normal mode. For some reason, now when I click it, it opens Normal (I guess), but it's a very small window. I've tried to resize it so it opens that way next time, but nothing saves. Do any of you have suggestions on how I can fix that? It's a pain having to resize the window every time. Thanks so much.

As said in the subject header, my facebook chat windows are missing an important part of their usual selves. There are no buttons on the top of the window, and most importantly, I basically cannot close those windows :) In the picture, the left side is Facebook on Mozilla, and the right side is Facebook on MS Edge (had no other option, and couldn't bother to install Chrome).

If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!

I have a subscription to the NY Times and have been using their archives which they call TimesMachine. Until yesterday it worked fine. Now when I type in a specific date the "I'm thinking" screen comes up and then it hangs. This does not occur when I'm using Chrome. I just re-did Firefox but it didn't help.

Since the latest Firefox update (77.0.1) pages no longer stay put. When I scroll down they automatically jump back to the top. Did a setting get changed with the update or is there something I need to adjust to get it to stop doing this? Thanks.

When ever I use the right click option to open a new tab to copy,paste, or other functions the option will open once when browser open first time. If I right click again anywhere on any page there is nothing however the menu option is there cause if I move my mouse where I think my options are I can kinda find it option will work. I have tried reinstalling and repairing so frustrating. My right click works no issue on Edge and Safari.
