This is just me or Firefox doesn't support drag and drop images to the desktop and download them, and I also can't drag and drop to Adobe Illustrator to edit images and what only comes out is a link, if in Chrome it's not like that

Anyway, my OS is Mac, is it because I'm a Mac so I can't?

I've installed two versions of Firefox in one Mac, 68.8 esr and 80.0.1. Though I want 68.8 to work as default browser, when I clicked URL on other apps, new 80.0.1 opened it always. One preference screen, both installations say that "Firefox is currently your default browser". No UI to set one as default.

Anyway to specify it?

Hi,

Last week, Firefox told me to update my android phone browser. I did & updated it with firefox nightly. I used this opportunity to change my main email address. Then, I decided to create a new my keyword, on my phone. At last, I created a backup key to protect my keyword & downloaded it, but can't find it anymore.

Since, impossible to open my account on any of my devices (Macbook, IPad & Android phone) because my main keyword is considered wrong.

Computer browser is 80.0.1 version IPad browser is 28.0 (18809) version.

I have a main email address & a secondary one (which receives no information from firefox). On my phone, I'm asked a 4 figures code that I can't find anywhere. I tried to download the QR code authentification application, but my MAC browser does not show any QR Code, it asks me the main keyword.

I don't want to loose all my IDs & keywords. I'm going mad, what should I Do ?

Recently upgraded to 78 from 68. Reader view in 78 has a very distracting actions box (not sure how else to describe it) with options to quit reader view, type controls and audio), which I would like to remove.

Does anyone know how to completely remove this box? Can always use the back button to return to page without reader view.

Please see screenshot.

Note, logged in from Waterfox, since for some reason trying to login with FF 78 rejects exact same login credentials. Inexplicably getting "account not active."

Not sharing data since Waterfox is irrelevant here.

Firefox/Mac gets stuck when asking it to send Outlook mail/share Google Drive items

Hi, I'm using a Macbook pro (OS Mojave) & Firefox (80.0.1). I'm having issues when I'm in Outlook365 (web version) and I click the People icon at bottom left to send an email to my Contact Lists. I select a list, and Send E-mail, and the pop up window for Outlook Office 365 opens but there is nowhere to write the email. Just says "Loading" with a spinning wheel. Works with Safari, though.

Same for sharing with Google Drive. When I click Share, it says "Sorry, Sharing is unavailable at this time. Try again later." But it too works with Safari.

This just started happening a couple of weeks ago. I stopped all the extensions. I even threw out the Cookies and Cache, restarted, and refreshed/reinstalled Firefox.

Any help would be appreciated.

I'm customizing Firefox's look via a userChrome.css file. The only thing I have in my userChrome.css is the following

/* Focused tabs color */ .tab-content[selected="true"] {

 opacity: 1.0 !important;
 background-image: none !important;
 background-color: #797979 !important;

}

which should change the selected tab's background color to #797979.

However, if I check the colors with an external tool (Digital Colour Meter for macOS) I can see that the selected tab's background color ranges from #747474 to #797979, when I'd expect a uniform #797979.

Why am I seeing these inconsistencies?

The white text in the black rectangle isn’t showing up as white (or whatever color I change it to) on Firefox despite the inspector window saying it’s computed as white. It should look like the second picture. It shows up correctly in Firefox on my iPad and other browsers on desktop, mobile, tablet. What could be going on?

I tested changing the paragraph text color too and that doesn’t change either.

I’m on macOS Catalina 10.15.6 and my Firefox text color preferences are set to never override webpage colors. My cache is also disabled.

Google Calendar, the website in browser, doesn't work. The problem seems to be with the calendar part itself, the boxes with the days - I have no interaction possible with the calendar. When I click, it does nothing. I can't add events or change old events or anything. The whole top bar is missing too - no title, no buttons, no navigation. It's really weird. I can get it to work in chrome fine, but not in firefox.

I cleared the cookies several times and restarted firefox and nothing.

I've been having this problem for a long time. Please help!

Trying to set up Firefox on a new computer. Running version 80.0.1 (64 - bit).

I would like to have Firefox save my addresses and contact info so I don't have to manually fill in forms. I searched for how to do it and found this article. [[Automatically fill in your address on web forms|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/automatically-fill-your-address-web-forms#firefox:mac:fx80]]

I have searched high and low in preferences but cannot find the link that the article refers to. There just isn't a "Forms and Autofill" section on my version of Firefox at least that I can find. Thanks in advance for any help!

Within the bookmarks toolbar, when I click the "show more bookmarks" double arrow on the RHS of the firefox window, it displays the bookmark list on the wrong monitor. The scale is also wrong (it's very large, because, I assume, it's matching the scaling of my laptop monitor, not the scaling of my monitor which is much larger).
