Until today the options for stopping videos auto playing worked OK, suddenly they don't work at all. I had changed all the settings in about:config - please see screen shot attached - a couple of weeks ago when they suddenly started auto playing and that solved the issue, but now I am back to square one. Even when I have ensured that the autoplay option is changed in the preferences section they are still auto-playing. Any suggestions please as this is driving me crazy!

Thanks in advance for your help. It is much appreciated.

Always have to waste time fixing this. With the power of technology today, why can this never be solved? Last time I finally found some source advising me to log into admin config or something. Then change a '1' to a '2'.

I tried it again this time. Does not remain resolved. Constant back & forth closing browser, restarting which fixes if for day or two, then back to same mess. WHY cannot this be resolved before sending out the upgrade?

After I fixed this last upgrade, it remained fixed.

Not THIS time. Fonts still reverting to skinny Hv light ital or similar. Not consistent. Could occur on some pages, others not.

I've had no problem with previous versions of Firefox. Since installing version 63.0.3, constant problems with crashing, hanging or loading homepage and websites extremely slowly. Sometimes loading of homepage cycles through two or three partial sequences before completing. Have tried all obvious recommended solutions without success, including safe mode, refresh and reinstall. Am using MacBook Pro 10.10.5 and BT as my home page. I use Safari as my other browser and it continues to run without any issues

Hi,

My FF in version 39 for Mac (latest version) does not remember last session tabs and cards. It is set to remember them in preferences but it is not working.

Start with home page or blank page is working. Option to remember 'open with last session tabs and cards' behaves exactly as 'start with home page'. When I enter history menu everything is there and I can force FF to restore last session tabs but it is not what I/we want.

I was trying to restart/shut down and power back - did not help.

Downgrade to 36.0.4 did not help.

Manual update from 36.0.4 to 39 did not help.

In sync menu history is also chosen to be synced.

Any ideas please?

Thank you in advance!

Hi,

I am using Firefox on my Macbook Pro.

When I quit Firefox, the windows close but the programme remains open on my dock with the dot underneath, as if it's still open.

Force quit doesn't work, and it is not showing up in activity monitor, so there is nothing to force kill there.

I then can't restart Firefox without restarting my computer.

right, so yesterday I panicked because one of my bookmark folders went missing, I freaked out, restored to the previous day (which made my browser crash), and then found it dragged into some other folder, hidden away, so all that was usless.

however, none of my bookmarks will appear when I start typing the url in the address bar - what am I supposed to do to bring it all back? I haven't changed any of the settings (unless restoring bookmarks did so without my knowledge), so I haven't a clue.

I have had a hard time editing bookmarks.

When I select "edit this bookmark," from the menu, I get a flashing pain-light on my screen, but no way to edit the bookmark.

When I hit command-D, from the keyboard, I get a mini-menu but it is hard to put the bookmark in the right folder.

When I open the bookmarks folder, it opens in its own window, instead of another tab in the same window, and it's hard to navigate between the two windows, and I can search for the bookmarks, but I can't search for the right folders to put them in.

Hello

I searched and could not find any information about what messages the user receives during Firefox Sync Process / When a sync is taking place. What are user confirmation messages does Firefox Sync provide?

  1. I would like to be notified when a sync is taking place e.g. started and finished
  2. I would like to be notified a new Firefox Account has been created
  3. I would like to be notified when Sync has been activated

I searched and could not find what Firefox Sync setup looks like when activated. I only know what it looks like when it is not activated. e.g. see my screenshot. Can you please post a screenshot of what it looks like setup. Thankyou


I do not have Firefox Sync activated and am nervous having this feature readily available under Firefox Preferences and requires no passcode to activate on my computer. I could not find anyway to disable this feature completly. Can it be done?

Firefox 47.0.1 Yosemite 10.10.5

Thankyou for your help in advance

Hi there,

I have installed a British dictionary, as I don't use American spelling (I'm Australian).

I've changed the language to British in settings and deleted USA from the options. Every time I close the browser it changes back to the US dictionary and the spellcheck starts correcting me based on USA spelling. I right click a text box, click languages and it's set itself to English (USA).

Is there some way to delete the USA dictionary entirely? Why does it keep changing back to the default?? It's so frustrating!

I am using a Mac, latest OS, with the default Firefox theme.

Thanks in advance, Hayden

From the page

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile#w_copying-files-between-profile-folders

After dragging and dropping the profile folder from the old PowerBook to the new MacBook Pro, I followed the copy/paste instructions, apparently successfully, to replace all the files in the latter with all the files in the former -- essentially to transfer my Firefox browser functionality from the old computer to the new. However, on starting Firefox, I have ZERO bookmarks (in other words, Firefox looks like it did when I downloaded and installed it a couple days ago). One note: When I performed the operation, I had used the new version of Firefox almost not at all, yet in the course of copying and pasting I had to permit replacement of HUNDREDS of bookmark files with identical names. How could THIS be?!?
