I used to see a feature in a question/answer editor here at FireFox help that allowed images to be displayed inline instead of only as thumbnails at the end of an answer or as links in the text of an answer. I saw answers with inline images today. How do you do that? Attached image shows what I mean. The attached image also is an example of an image not displaying inline.

I've installed Firefox on my MacBook Air laptop, but every time I turn off my computer, the icon to access Firefox disappears from my shortcuts bar and I have to go back to my downloads folder, double click on the "Firefox 75.0.dmg" file and re-install Firefox. Meanwhile, all my bookmarks on Firefox are lost and have to start everything anew like a new customer each day. My membership email is the only thing that is retained therefore day-to-day. I've checked the settings and have even made Firefox my default browser but that hasn't helped. I should add that I also have Express VPN. When I add Firefox to the ExpressVPN's shortcuts, again it stays there only until I turn off the computer. Meanwhile, Google Chrome and my email icons remain on the VPN startup window and don't go away as does Firefox. Jacob

I am unable to log in to ANY page requiring my password when using Firefox. Chrome works fine for me. I don't want to reset passwords as I just went thru and did those as a regular update. What has happened to Firefox that it won't let me use any of my sites I need to log in to?

I'm having similar issues to described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1090728

The search bar in the "Awesome bar" has stopped offering search suggestions, either from my search history or from Google itself. When I control-click in the search bar, "search suggestions" has a check next to it, and it is also ticked in the Preferences.

This started last week when i migrated to a new iMac.

I went through all of the troubleshooting steps described in the article above but still no suggestions in the address bar.

I'd like to continue using Firefox but this is a deal breaker. What can i do?

Hi. I am running Apple OS 10.13.6 on my Mac Mini (Mid 2011) with Firefox 76.0.1. I added VPN. Seemed like a good idea. Little did I know that adding VPN would delete my last session and disable my ability to restore previous sessions from now on. I needed to restart during the process of adding the VPN and, when I saw that all of my previous session was lost, I quit and went back in, thinking that I did something wrong. Noe I think that I may have eliminated some options to restore. Can anyone help me to restore my last session and enable future session restore? Maybe even disabling VPN? Thanks. -Gregg

I've just switched to Firefox from Chrome and need to change some of the hotkeys to a more familiar setup.

Also, another annoying thing I noticed, `cmd+b` opens up the Bookmarks sidebar, rather than bolden the text on a WYSIWYG editor on websites (i've installed FF v76.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS).

I have my plugins synced through Firefox Sync. For development I'm using Firefox Developer Edition (FDE).

There are times I do not want to have all plugins en-/disabled in all browser. e.g. I don't need a form filler plugin all the time in my regular FF instance. But I mostly need it all day in the FDE instance.

Problem starts by disabling a plugin in the regular FF instance. Because this disables the plugin through sync in all other instances.

I'm looking for s possibility to disable plugins "locally". So only disable it for the currently running FF instance, and not propagate the state through sync.

A separate "DEV profile" might help, but I don't want to deal with sep. profiles, as the tabs would be synced in this different profile for example.

I can imagine that this is kind of an edge case scenario. But maybe somebody knows a way around this.

I've installed firefox on my new mac to match my desktop pc a little better. It works smoothly on desktop, but on this mac it seems to be nothing but trouble. Every time I reset my macbook I have to login to firefox manually, and then I'm faced with all my top sites missing. It's been mitigated slightly by adding bookmarks to my highlights page, but I'd still like to not login every time I reset. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello all,

I have had an issue with all dropdown menus not displaying correctly in web pages for a few days.

All dropdown menus looks empty: I am able to open dropdown menus and the containers have the right size (corresponding to the number of menu items that are supposed to be displayed in the dropdowns), but the menu items themselves are not displayed.

I tried disabling all add-ons and refreshing Firefox, but to no avail.

Thanks!

Firefox tabs not syncing between iPhone and macbook pro

Hello!

While I do have 97 tabs open in Firefox on my iPhone, NONE of them appear in my 'Synced Tabs' Sidebar in Firefox on my macbook pro.

To allay the immediate and obvious questions: + Yes, I'm running the most up-to-date version of Firefox on my mac (76.0.1) and on my iPhone (version 25 with no additional update available on the App Store) + Yes, I am signed-in on both devices. + Yes, I am signed-in to the SAME account on both devices. + Most surprisingly: YES AND YES, I can SEND a specific TAB from the mac to the iPhone as well as SEND A--ie ONE at a time--TAB from the iPhone to the Mac. Whaaaaaat... why??

(a quick PS: the all-caps words are all-caps-ed for emphasis on how unbelievable this is--I'm far more surprised than I am angry; I have faith in the Firefox community being able to solve this)

To reiterate, despite the situation described above, ZERO tabs appear in the list of Synced Tabs! There is a (fairly meta) screenshot attached below which shows the empty Synced Tabs Sidebar.

THINGS I have ALREADY tried: 1) I have tried signing out and signing back in on the Mac. 2) I have tried pressing/running a 'sync' on both devices. 3) I have searched for archived help files and found one suggesting I look for a "userChrome.css" file in the profile folder buried in the hidden view of my ~/library--I did this and found no such file. 4) I tried signing out and clicking on the 'sign-in to sync tabs' button IN THE Synced Tabs Sidebar ITSELF; I was able to login but... no change. 5) I tried RENAMING BOTH devices. The renaming synced on both sides, but THE TABS ARE STILL MISSING.  :/

I've run out of immediate ideas... I turn to you, here, for help. Please help.

I have an android with Firefox installed, and a Mac where I also use Firefox. When I first installed Firefox on each, the bookmarks matched. I do the bulk of work on my laptop, but occasionally have articles I wish to bookmark on my phone. I have done a sync, but when I go to access the bookmarks on my phone, they are not updated to what is on my laptop.

When I check to see what devices I have connected through Firefox, my phone does not show up, and when I hit the link to "connect a device" all it does it take me to a link to send a text to invite my phone to install it. Which, it's already installed.

I really need these bookmarks to talk to each other properly. What am I missing?
