Hello,

Currently running MacOS Montery but the problem was still occurring on previous versions.

Whenever I use the green top left button to enter full-screen, the app immediately freezes and either crashes or has to be manually force quit. There are no reports in about:crashes and I there has been no success with troubleshooting mode or switching versions of the Firefox application.

Machine Info: MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) Processor: 2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7 Memory: 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4 Graphics: Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Any help towards a solution would be appreciated. Thanks!

As stated in the title, everytime when I open a link in the operating system (i.e. clicking on a link in an email or opening a website with Alfred) while Firefox is not already running, the following happens:

1. Two Firefox windows are opened 2. One window opens the requested website (https://startpage.com in the Screenshots) but has no context items in the Menu Bar above. 3. The second opens at Home and has the items in the Menu Bar.

I am using Mac OS Catalina (multiple versions) and the issue persisted a complete reinstall (I wiped my hard drive and did a clean install) of the operating system. I tried mainstream Firefox 73.0 and Firefox Dev Edition latest beta 74.0b2. (Used `brew cask` to install) Also I do have another Mac on High Sierra that does not have this issue.

So my Firefox Developer edition just got updated to the version 74.0b2 and I got this brand new address/search bar. One of the things that it used to have before it had been updated was a simple arrow-down button that, when clicked, showed the most visited sites. Now, after the update, this button is gone (pic related). This makes my experience with Firefox *extremely* worse, because now I don't have a quick access to open one of my most visited sites inside the current tab without starting typing their addresses. Is there any option to bring that feature back? Is removal of this button an already-made design choice for Firefox that will stay with us for the next versions?

I'm using firefox developer edition. The latest version: 76.0b2 I have firefox.cfg set up to overwrite new tab content with locally stored html. The code in firefox.cfg that worked until recent update:

/* set new tab page */ try {

 var newTabURL = "file:///G:/Documents/Newtab.html";
 aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);
 aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

In the browser console there is an error message displayed:

[Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative" nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)" location: "JS frame :: firefox.cfg :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 7" data: no]

Any idea what that error message means and how to resolve it? Does anything changed regarding new tab overwrite?

HI I have just updated FF from a very old version to 77.0b8 (64-bit). My favourite bookmarks bar had coloured (like windows) folder icons, now they are black, bland and horrible. I have tried searching for an add on that changes the folder icon colours, but the search brings up far to many bookmark add ons not related. I have tried many different searches but can't get a result. Does anyone know of a mod/add on, or a way to change the Folder icons colour please? Many thanks for reading.

Downloading and Opening docx Firefox appends doc onto file

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.

I've been searching for the answer to this for a couple of hours and nothing has worked. When I start typing in the URL bar, I only want websites I've visited previously to show up, in the order of most frequently visited. It used to do that until a few hours ago. Now instead I get previous search results and bookmarked sites only. Can I change it back to its previous function or will I have to revert to an older version of Firefox?

eta: I figured out how to get the websites to show again, but I still don't want the search history showing up.

Whilst reading my daily newspaper, when i open an article some photos are replaced by code (see example)...

As i said, in some, most of the time it works fine? Seems to be the case when the newspaper uses photos imported from Twitter or an other external source?

Emptying cache (and again and again...) cannot be the solution though?

Thank U!
