Got one response from a volunteer but that response, unfortunately, was for Windows. I'm on a Mac...

When I select the bookmark, Firefox does nothing, apparently.

iPhone works just fine on sites that Firefox won't access, so it's not the modem or the ISP.

Thanks in advance!

The recent update to the Firefox browser on my Mac now defaults to the search bar at the top of the page as I type and provides a stream of unhelpful suggestions. Previously I was able to type in what I was looking for in the Firefox search bar in the middle of the screen unhindered until I had completed the sentence and then press search. I would like to reset it back to that. I have tried to change it via Preferences but it didn't work. Thanks for any help. Trekker.

How the issue started: There is an issue where firefox sometimes freezes when copying an image from discord. I'm pretty sure this is on discord's end since I think it also happens with chrome and if an image does it it will always do it. Anyway, I froze firefox via that bug. I force quit it. When I reopened it, I had the issue described below. The issue persists after a normal quit and reopen and over a full computer reboot.

The issue: I'm not entirely sure how to describe it. If a box is supposed to be black or grey, it's max white. Every box, including bounding boxes around controls, even the fill bars on videos to make them fit the aspect ratio. If it's supposed to be a transparent completely bounding box, it's full opacity, if it has partial transparency, it has the same opacity it's supposed to but is white. This doesn't break black or grey pixels in images, nor does it break text, it only breaks boxes. My suspicion is that firefox's graphics driver has its fill function broken or something? I'm not sure but the issue makes firefox incredibly difficult to use.

Please help ASAP. This makes firefox incredibly difficult to use. I don't want to switch back to chrome, but I will if this is not resolved soon because of eye strain.

See attached images for screenshots of common sites to compare with how they are supposed to look.

I have most recent release of Firefox and also just updated MacOS to 11.5.2. After updates the histograms on the Wordpress blog stats page do not display. They display fine on Opera. I did clear cache — that didn't help. I quit Firefox and restarted — that didn't help. Firefox version for Mac version 91.0.1 (64-bit).

I assume this must be a Firefox bug, but am open to suggestions on how to fix the problem.

Also, when I click the checkbox for "Email me when someone answers the thread" it will not accept the check. Irritating.

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.

Hello,

I wrote in about an hour ago, but clicking Submit resulted in a blank page - no acknowledgement or notice from you in email since. Pls forgive if you get this twice.

I was clearing Recent History when FF crashed and lost many important open tabs. This happened with V. 93.

I back up daily with Time Machine. I'm wondering if there's a file in Application Support or elsewhere it can restore to bring the tabs back?

System profile attached.

Any help appreciated. Peter
