I tried to type “teddy bear” into the url bar. After I typed the letter “t”, it autocompleted a url that began “th”. I kept typing. Instead of overwriting the “th” to “te”, it kept the “h”, leading to “the”. The result was “theddy bear”. This reproduces 100% of the time for me. Variants on this bug make it difficult to type in search terms.

I have a short screen recording of it in action but this form won’t let me upload it—photos only.

The Facebook Container information pages suggest you are able to assign sites to containers such that they automatically open into those containers, as do Facebook and Instagram with the Facebook container. However after extensive hunting, I can not find how to assign such automatic containment to other sites, such as google or banking websites, and instead have to manually assign the containers upon tab opening.

Has someone solved this?

Hi, hi!

I just got my new MacBook Pro in the last weeks, installed the new Firefox in it but I could not use Netflix. I looked up add-ons and there is one plugin OpenH264 from Cisco that says it will install shortly but it does not. I tried to toggle it but that changed nothing. I really do not know what to do. Netflix runs normally on Safari, but Firefox is my browser of choice, it would be nice to be able to use there. I also do not know yet which other sites this might affect. Any ideas to what the problem is? How to fix it?

Thanks a lot

I am a Mac user. I have been using FireFox (FF) as my go to browser for a number of years.

I have a WordPress blog. For the last year, I have been having problems with the display of the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube icons through the FF browser. They are not visible when I post as "Admin." However, these icons show up when I use Safari. So, in order to post on my Facebook page, I now have to use Safari. I can use FireFox to write the posts, but because the icons aren't visible, I can't directly get to my Facebook page and have to use Safari to post.

Any idea why the icons don't show up when using FF? (I tried to attach two screenshots to show the FF and Safari pages, but they exceed the file size and won't upload.)

Any help addressing this issue, will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks.

Sincerely, F. Brooks

I keep getting these warnings about websites that I have connected to for years. The latest involves OptumRx where I get my prescriptions filled through my insurance. What can I do? This first occurred with a connection to my credit union, now it's happening with another website. The warning message says to notify the websites administrator, but how can I do that when I can't connect to the website? All of these certificates seem to be from country "CZ". Does this mean I've been hacked?

I love Firefox and have used it for years!

I am working on a Macbook Air, with the latest Big Sur iOS.

Today Firefox was working fine.

Then (in an attempt to use a new software that requires an old version of Firefox) I uninstalled my current Firefox and installed an old version of Firefox. (Side note: the old version of Firefox would not work with the new software's imacros because of Big Sur. So I have installed Parallels so I can run the new software on Windows.)

Soooooooo, I uninstalled the old version of Firefox, and then downloaded the lastest version of Firefox. I installed it as instructed.

Two things are happening:

1. Firefox icons in Applications and in the dock both show as a shortcut. I cannot seem to install a non--shortcut version of Firefox! 2. EVERY time I now open Firefox, it requires me to re-login to Firefox AND reinstall the extensions. Very annoying!

So I know I'm missing something. Not real technie, so any help is appreciated!

Thank you!

Firefox is my default browser on iPhone 11 Pro. I use an education app that has a Speech to Text feature to dictate student observations. In a Safari browser this feature is readily accessed by a microphone symbol on the keyboard that comes up in a text window. In Firefox I cannot access the microphone for speech to text. I don't want to go back to Safari as my default browser. Is there a workaround? The image is of the Safari screen in this app. Can Firefox enable a similar access using an icon for the microphone?

Can I sync my information across accounts and not devices?

I was surprised when I set up a separate Firefox account for work on my personal computer and my personal browsing history was synced to that account. I deleted it as I don’t want any of my personal stuff linked to an account I’m going to use for work.

So my question is, is it possible to create an account and just store browsing data on that account? Rather than the account pulling data from my device?

I have a MacBook Air, and recently purchased a second, to replace an old desktop. Now, on my MacBook a second firefox icon, with a gray square appears whenever my wife is using the new MacBook, even if Firefox is not running on her computer. If I click on the new icon, it takes me directly to whatever site she is browsing in Safari.

Obviously something is being shared, but I've tried unsyncing different things, and it still happens. Is there any way to stop this?

Attached is a screen shot. Thanks
