I have the latest English United States Dictionary extension installed and it works for spellcheck OK. Is there a way to use the dictionary to look up a definition? I have tried several extensions, but they all require linking to and opening a separate page. I'm used to the ability in Safari to look up a definition in the context menu. Is that possible with Firefox?

None of the office 365 email popouts work! I cannot reply all with a meeting invite because it creates a popout. I cannot double click on an email because it creates a popout. I cleared all of my cache because that is the closest thing I could find in this stupid ocean of help questions. It used to work in firefox...but your update changes and microsofts' did something to break it. can you help? Or is there a chat or a real person to talk to? Otherwise all my team will have to use a different browser from now on...I actually like Firefox...but not this support conglomeration.

Here is an example of the popout url... but the screen is gray!

This evening, I was prompted to update to the latest version of Firefox, so I went ahead with it. I wasn't expecting it to create an entirely new install, rather than overlaying the current one. I went ahead with the instructions to copy info from my old profile to the new, but when I close the new browser and relaunch, none of my old info (bookmarks, open tabs, etc.) is there. I had copied all the files listed in the article.

The old install was to the C: drive. I did not have enough space on C:, so I installed the new to D:. Looks like, in spite of that, the profile files went to the usual location on C:. I don't know if that is the issue or not, but I need some help figuring this out. Grateful for any guidance you can offer.

Some math typesetting doesn't render. Neither on my desktop Firefox nor my android Firefox installs. I believe it is just KaTeX, especially from pages with github type markdown rendering.

This does not render correctly [image attached]. It appears to be a 'math-jax' typesetter actually, judging by the header scripts.

This does render... eventually. But the page layout jumps around. It displays the underlying tex for a bit before the typesetter executes. Very usable but a little jarring every time it loads.

The problem persists in safe-mode. I have also tried multiple extensions to force or add rendering support but none have helped.

When Firefox 76.0.1 installed on my computer several things happened. All my tampermonkey scripts were deleted, and I'm unable to reinstall them (normally by clicking on the link the install happens, now the contents of the script just displays on the screen) I have several Gmail accounts, and all but one work - what I mean is I can log into most of them, but one will not login and connect. Have tried rebooting the computer, restarting Firefox. Very strange. Would a remove and reinstall be the next step?

I have two other laptops, on one the upgrade was transparent, on the other, most of the tampermonkey scripts stayed - need to reinstall a few. And the Gmail account is accessible.

Don't know if the troubleshooting data appeared.

OK, I'm beyond frustrated with this. I have my passwords saved in firefox. For the first time EVER when I click on the little eyeball to see my pasword for a particular site (tools/options/privacy&security/saved logins), a pop-up box comes up saying "windows security Mozilla firefox verify your identity to reveal the saved Password" and I'm asked for a username and password. NONE of them work. I can 'log in' to firefox, change my picture, change my password, etc., etc., etc. BUT I can't successfully get that F&**%&$ box to accept anything. and it LOCKS EVERYTHING when that box is up. I can't switch to a different tab, I can't move the browser window. I am allowed to move the verification box within the browser window. I can't take a screenshot of it because it locks that capability out. H.E.L.P.!!! What is it really asking for because it sure isn't my username and password for any account I have ever had....because I think I've tried them all in every combination.... Thank you!!!

Say that I have a login at a site, and I got there previously with another browser. When I go to the same site with Firefox for the first time, that site's ID field might drop down to show a number of entries, and many times (but not always) there is no "View Saved Logins" below the list.

Here is an example of a site than many readers of this might not go to: DevonTechnologies.com and this might be the same for you. Devon's login ID wants an email address, and the field dropped down to show 29. A bunch of them were emails I would swear on my kid's heads I have never used anywhere, not even in another browser, and one was a misspelling of my own email address. Only a small few were addresses that were valid elsewhere. But here is the rub: A search of about:logins for the weird addresses and my misspelling came up empty.

Further, I can go to another site I have never visited with Firefox, and I might not get a drop-down at all or I might get just one of my three typical email addresses.

For those sites where I have used Firefox for the first time, the questions are

  • Where did Firefox get those spurious addresses?
  • Where did Firefox get a good address, and why did it leave out the "usual" others?
  • Why are the odd logins not found at about:logins?

I have Firefox 76.0.1 under Catalina 10.15.4, and I sync with Lockwise.

Thanks.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox (I have automatic updates enabled) on my Windows desktop. I am trying to view a saved password I created a while ago so I can use it in another application. I used to be able to view passwords via the "Logins and Passwords" option, followed by clicking on the eye symbol. Now when I try I am prompted to "verify my identity" with a login. My firefox account login and password (which I verified are correct) don't give me access.

My research suggests Firefox now uses Firefox Lockwise to secure passwords. I have not created a Firefox Lockwise account, so do not have an account name or password for it (if that's even necessary).

Another user posted a solution to a similar problem which he stated was a "temporary fix" that "may not work for future updates", and I am concerned. I would like to be able to view my saved password, now and in the future. How do I once again get access to my saved passwords?

When I click print in Firefox and chose Paperless Printer it would start and run the program. By doing this I save on paper and ink plus I can save in any format that Paperless Printer has. It used to work until approximately a month ago. Paperless Printer still works in I.E. and MS Edge. I've reinstalled P.P. and I also tried refreshing Firefox but nothing helped. Paperless Printer shows as a printer in the list and when chosen the PP program would open up and take over the printing needs and then just store the created file. Now Firefox starts to ready the page(s) to print but PP doesn't open up.
