Hello there, I have an odd specific question. I want firefox to stop suggesting previous searches and form fills but I don't want to stop getting address bar suggestions. I like those. I understand that having these suggestions is "helpful" but I don't like them. I could only find info on stopping address bar suggestions, so I'm sorry if this has already been answered elsewhere.

When using the Amazon website, when I click accounts and lists, it says page not found.

It works fine in Safari.

Since FF80 came out, many addons have been having trouble. Such as speeddial, where I've been in contact with the developer and he's says there'll be an update in 2 weeks to fix it.

Adblock was playing up, allowing acceptable ads, not allowing access to prefs from the toolbar icon's gear, and only sometimes allowing access to prefs from FF-Tools-Addons.

But today that is working.

Amazon had been working fine until today, when it wanted to use those annoying "I'm not a robot" things to get me to sign in again. I rang up. Cleared cookies etc. But still had the problem.

I had addons that re-directed me from amazon to smile.amazon

I've disabled that. I've also disabled the Tampermonkey addon which I'd used to redirect to smile.amazon {and also remove Youtube end cards.}

But still, when I'm on amazon, and I click on accounts and lists, it says page not found.

I can hover the cursor over the accounts and lists bit, and from there I can get to my lists, orders, etc.

But still not my account.

I get:

	Looking for something?

We’re sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site.

Click here to go back to the Amazon home page


This is getting beyond a joke.

I've tried to check on the macbook downstairs, and it's the same problem. Worse, now when I start to type amazon into the search bar, it brings up amazon.com as the default, not amazon.co.uk as before. {And is still working here.}

I have no idea what's going on. But somehow it's all broken. Any ideas?

I have mistyped a credit card number so now it keeps filling in the wrong number. I can't find where to edit or delete this. All the help articles say go to "Forms and Autofill" and then "Saved Credit Cards". I don't have these options. I don't have "Forms and Autofill", I just have "Logins and Passwords" and under that, I just have an on/off toggle option for "Autofill logins and passwords" - can't find anywhere for saved credit cards. I updated to 80.0.1 browser so I'm up to date.

Hi all,

I'm having a small issue with horizontal scroll in Firefox. I'm using a MacBook Pro with an external mouse. On Macs, holding SHIFT while scrolling the mouse scroll wheel allows you to scroll horizontally, rather than the default vertical scroll with no keys being pressed. However, this is currently not working for me in Firefox. When I scroll the scroll wheel without pressing any keys, the vertical scroll functions normally without any problems; when I hold SHIFT while scrolling the scroll wheel, nothing happens at all. No horizontal scroll, nor vertical scroll.

I have tested this in Brave on this same system, and both vertical scrolling (scroll wheel) and horizontal scrolling (SHIFT + scroll wheel) are working correctly, so it would seem this is an issue with Firefox. Does anyone know how this issue can be fixed?

Thank you, David

Whenever I open Firefox, it always opens in the last desktop that it was open in, not the desktop that I'm currently in on my Mac. It's a small thing, but it's annoying. I'll open a new desktop because I want to open Firefox by itself without other apps in the background and it'll open in whatever desktop it was last open in instead.

I've already made sure that under "Options > Assign to" on the dock icon it is set to "None." Somehow that seems to mean that it's assigned to the last desktop it was open in.

Is this an annoyance I have to live with or is there a solution that I've missed?

My favoured browser is Firefox on a MacBook Pro mid 2010 with external monitor attached! It plays embedded video better than any chrome browser I have tried with no jitter! However with certain websites and in particular MSNBC News website, the video stream launches as expected and like chrome browsers takes a few seconds to adjust up the resolution and smooth out jaggies but then the video stops and audio continues! Refreshing the page solves the problem! This does not happen on chrome based browsers (although on my Mac, they don't play embedded viseo as well as Firefox! Using 80.0.1 Any thoughts?

I use a Logitech MX Master mouse as my primary pointing device on my laptop (2015 MacBook Air). I use Logitech's options software (Logi Options) to set custom bindings for the buttons on the mouse. I have what would typically be considered the forward/back page keys to adjust volume up and down, a scroll wheel click is still just Mouse 3, and the gesture button on the side of the mouse is set to zoom in/out with the scroll wheel while it is depressed.

Firefox is the only browser that doesn't support the inputs from my mouse. How do I correct this?

Thanks!

Starting last night, I have noticed that random tabs get "stuck" and I am unable to click on them to activate the page or close them.

Other tabs are unaffected and after about 30 seconds, the affected tab will become responsive.

I have noticed that the problem always occurs on the same tabs once the problem starts, and will continue to affect that tab if I navigate to a different website.

I have not added any additional add-ins and have tried disabling existing add-ins, without success.

Could someone please provide some methode to fix this issue?

- on my Macbook Air i've just changed from using Safari to Firefox. I synchronized Firefox on all my devices (IPhone, IPad). However, using firefox, passwords from ICloud (the server) are not automatically enetered if I visit a website. Since apple generated these passwords it's quite a challange to enter them all by hand. There must be a more efficient solution. In short: how can i allow Firefox to use the passwords stored in my account on ICloud? - how do I transfer my favorites from safari in Firefox (the import tool only gives the option to import bookmarks).

I do hope someone can help me; many thanx in advance, anyway.

Relatively minor problem, but: lately, if I enter text too quickly after opening a new tab, the text that I entered into the search bar gets deleted. Maybe half a second or so after opening the tab, this stops and the text enters normally. But, this is frustrating for navigating or searching from new tabs.

Any way to fix this? I am using Firefox 80.0.1 on a Mac. I am also using the Tabliss extension, if that matters.

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

With Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS 10.13.6 attempting to use Firefox->Services->New TextEdit Window Containing Selection on a bit of selected text in a web page consistently returns the error: "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection. There might be an internal error or a performance problem, or the source application may be providing text of invalid type in the service request. Please try the operation a second time. If that doesn’t work, copy/paste the selection into TextEdit."

This works in Safari and Chrome, so I am confused and frustrated that it does not seem to work in Firefox.

Could this be a bug in Firefox? Unfortunately, I don't know how to read or wrote computer code. All I know is that this doesn't work for me.

I have google.com as my home page. It used to be (until recently) that when I created a new tab with the google.com home page, the cursor was immediately in the search textbox in the middle of the page and I could start typing. Now, the cursor starts out at the URL bar at the top of the window instead. How do I get the old behavior back?
