Hello altogether. I sat up my MacBook to automatically enter light or dark mode. Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave. Even if I restart the MacBook the next day, while the system boots with light mode enabled, Firefox will remain in dark mode.

To change this temporarily, I have to open the macOS settings and enable light mode. Firefox now change to light mode and stays in light mode, even if I again re-enable the automatic changing in the macOS settings.

Later those days, Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave, like described before.

Is this a known bug? Anything else I can try?

Thanks for reading, looking forward to a possible solution.

I desperately miss a forward/backward button that allows me to surf back and forth across tabs in my entire survival history. The current system is completely overloaded and you can't find the last tab again.

Is this known behavior? Has it been reported to Mozilla? Found nothing from a search.

What happened to FireFox Version 88.0.1? I updated to this version yesterday after a lot of nagging from popups.

Prob 1. Try to open a link from email and I get, "Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to input.mozilla.org. PR_CONNECT_ABORTED_ERROR The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified. Please contact the website owners to inform them of this problem."

When I try the same link in Safari, which tends to be grumpier than Firefox about security issues. it works just fine; no complaints and the page opens.

Prob 2 ( IMO related ). Try to open a bookmark and I get, "The connection was reset

The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web."

Again, when I try the same link or site in Safari, works just fine.

(5/9/21) I use Yahoo mail for my newsletter. I place images as well as links and text. Everything was working fine for the last two years, but three days ago the images disappeared on the drafts if I left the draft or refreshed it. It will not even send the images. So I went to Safari and everything works fine. I rather use Firefox because Safari sucks. But this also means I can't send images on any kind of email either. I'm using a Mac laptop. Does anyone else have this problem? If it isn't fixed, I will have to use Safari or Google browsers from now on. I don't like Google either because they're Deepstate. Thank you!

Firefox installs updates without my permission and then deletes everything - logins, cookies, bookmarks, view settings, all history.

Now this has happened 3 times in less than a month. And it seems to happen randomly. It is likely related to a new update. I get alerts for updates and this time when the alert pop up showed up I declined by clicking "not now". I had also changed my preferences to only install updates with my permission. That is ignored by Firefox. Instead this morning I walked away from my computer for a few minutes and when I returned every this was gone the "this is embarrassing" screen was there but the only restore choice was to "search Marquis".

There is some type of conflict going on and I can't figure it out. I am using a MacBook running 10.12.6 and I have used Firefox for years. The most recent change was to a different internet provider. But the problem with Firefox deleting my info started before that. Something seems to crash within Firefox and it may automatically restart and then install an new update that deletes everything. That is just my guess. I don't really understand a lot of this and don't want to spend hours learning about browsers. The last time it happened I spent a long time trying to follow the suggestions for getting my history and everything else back but none of that worked. So I've given up on retrieving anything and apparently even having a history because it's always going to be randomly delete by Firefox.

Maybe Firefox is not the right browser for me anymore? What are the requirements?

Thanks for any suggestions as to what might be causing this.

Firefox 88.0.1 on MacOS Big Sur 11.2.3

Two evenings ago I noticed my address wasn't filling in when I was checking out on a shop and thought it was simply the site. Yesterday morning, same issue, different site. Credit cards weren't filling in. I tried another site and another and another... All the same issue!

I tried disabling extensions, clearing my cache, quitting and restarting Firefox, and several suggestions on this forum for about:config. Nothing has worked.

I don't know if the attached screenshot will help. Hopefully it does.

I hadn't touched a single setting prior to this happening so I have no idea why it simply decided to stop?

Thank you!

Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505

For the last few versions of FF (currently on 88.0.1 (64-bit) OSX Big Sur) certain websites display text incorrectly where the text is bold and each character is offset with the next one (see attached Images).

It only seems to happen to certain websites and happens both within my web based email and on standard websites - but only some of them.

I've attached a photo of the issue in my webmail - I'm viewing an email sent to me using mailchimp, but even this is inconsistent as other emails using mailchimp are fine. And as I said before it happens on websites too (examples attached).

I have this issue on my 2020 iMac and my 2020 M1 MacBook Air but not on my 2019 iMac. All 3 are running latest version of FF and all synced to my FF account and have all the same settings. Attached photo of plugins/extensions installed too.

Please help me fix this it's so frustrating!

Thanks

I had to do a factory reset of my computer a few months ago and reinstall Firefox. I have never found the bookmark folders that I used when I first got Firefox 88. Folders do not show up when I open the library, select bookmarks and manage bookmarks. Now I put all new ones in bookmark toolbar and they are a long list that is difficult to use. Is there a simple way to find and create folders so I can organize the bookmarks in toolbar and put them in folders?

I could not understand the information in the answers to similar questions. I need simple directions that are not too technical for someone without sophisticated computer skills. Thanks in advance.

In my question above, I have taken out 3 sentences but it still says I have too many characters. At first it said I had 11 more than the 255 limit; after deleting all that, it says I have 40 more. It won't make sense if I take out any more.

Hey folks,

Hope everyone is doing well.

The title pretty much sums it up. When I right click on a link to select "open link in new tab" (or other selection), the menu seems to open just beneath the cursor causing an instantaneous selection (usually opens a new tab). I've tried using the browser without any extensions and the problem keeps occurring (just happened now when I tried to select the correct spelling for occurring).

This only seems to happen with Firefox.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

In MacOS Big Sur 11.1 on my MacBook, I have set MacOS to automatically switch between Light Mode and Dark Mode. But I notice that Firefox does not handle this well. When I have used my MacBook Dark Mode and switch back to Light Mode, Firefox still hangs in Dark Mode. The only way to solve this is to choose Light Mode in System Preferences instead of automatic.
