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!

I bought a new system with latest OS Big Sur, I'm using Firefox v49.1 (required version) for my official purpose. So I installed this version in my Mac and it works smoothly, suddenly it quits and showing crash alert. I reinstalled again and again, but it's not worked. I fed up with this issue. Please guide me to solve this. Previously I was using Mac with High Sierra OS. That time I haven't face this issue ever.

Hi All - I have FF working well on a Windows PC and a Net Book and have newly installed it on a 2021 Mac Mini. It works fine but when I restart the Mac it has forgotten that I Sync'd FF previously and so has none of my bookmarks or preferences. I can re-sync and everything appears but why is it forgetting between times and what can I do to fix it? Thanks for any advice. Ian.

I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?
