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?

The latest Firefox update locks up my Mac OS 10.14.6. Force Quit does not work. Cannot shut down properly, or at all, unless using the power key. Did not have this problem until I updated four days ago. I have to run 32-bit because of other applications.

Hi,

I would like to address the following feedback to Designers, User Experience Experts, and Developers of Firefox.

I am creating this post to mention something very important about the usuability of Firefox and that people look for in choosing their browsers. Although "just" usability aspects, I think they cannot be overlooked in order to make Firefox the go-to choice of more users.

There are a four (relatilvely) small features that Firefox lacks in respect to Chrome and other major browsers, and a number of people miss them so much that end up using other browsers. Namely:

1) There is no "Type Address + Tab" functionality when typing a URL of a website in the address bar and then pressing Tab so as to directly type the search that a user wants to look for once landing on the given website (this is a famous Chrome feature).

2) a CTRL + F search for a word in a web page does not highlight all words in a page, but only the current one is found (one needs to click enter to find the next one but it does not work like in Chrome or Safari which they highlight ALL instances of the searched text)

3) a laptop trackpad's pinch in/out with two fingers does not allow the zoom of a web page (third party plug ins fail at doing this task properly).

4) ALL other browsers open an incognito window with CTRL + SHIT + N. Why does Firefox does it differenly with CTRL + SHIT + P? This creates confusion for the average browser user.


I think having an attention to detail for such feature is really important. It would increase Firefox's userbase. Although a person choosing Firefox is making an important, usually conscious decision, about privacy, usuability plays an essential role for an average internet user.

I recently had a Black 3TB internal OS Hard Drive installed in my 27in Mac Computer by an Apple associated store. They also transferred my Application Data across from my old Hard Drive to the new one as part of the service. Whilst Catalina interfered with many of my apps, as Catalina is a 64BIT processor, I have overcome many of the problems associated with this new OS installation. The company updated my OS system to Catalina in the process of transferring the Data, and although I never thought at the time that this would occur, so did not mention to them that I wanted to stay with Mojave. But now I have Catalina installed and upgraded all my apps that would not open after installation, to 64Bit including Firefox, but my browser keeps freezing up when using it after a while and stops shutting down when I try to restart my PC to unfreeze Firefox. this is quite annoying as I wish to continue with Firefox as my Web Browser, as I use the LastPass app for my Log In to each site and this is not possible with Safari or Google, can you advise me regarding a solution to this problem as I have deleted Firefox several times and downloaded a new one many times but this does not fix the problem. Regards Brian Shaw.

Since updating to Mac OS Catalina, Firefox is displaying some text/fonts on websites as boxed question marks. I have tried some of the suggested fixes including: 1. lowering the security.sandbox.content.level to a value of 2, 1, or even 0, but no success. 2. Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own. When checked - The boxed question marks appear. 3. The problem is only happening in Firefox. No problem in Safari. (see image)

However, it seems JavaScript is either disabled or not supported by your browser. To use standard view, enable JavaScript by changing your browser options, then try again.

after system update on macbook pro (os 10.15.4) the firefox icon disappeared on the dock requiring me to sign in again with a change in password after which I discovered that all previous bookmarks were GONE! I do have the browser installed on a desktop which seems to have retained my old bookmarks. Any suggestions on retrieving previous bookmarks links and their associated login/passwords , or transferring my bookmarks from desktop to my macbook?

I'm getting a consistent error message when I attempt to connect with Vudu while on my Firefox browser. I'm able to access via Safari although no luck with Firefox. Can you tell me why this maybe happening?? The browser ties as it starts with www.vudu.com but switches to https://click.linksynergy.com/deeplink?id=UO85MF6im/8&mid=VUDU&murl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.vudu.com%2F&u1=939064646&afsrc=1&cnst=15 which results in an error. I'm also finding that when I attempt to access my banking site, I'm denied by the bank although I'm able to access it via iPad, iPhone or Safari, so I know that the problem I'm having is with Firefox. Just not sure how to fix it. Can anyone out there offer any suggestions for a fix??

Honestly, I don't care about Sync. I only use my desktop computer. My cookies are always set to be saved. I never delete them. But every time I open Firefox 76, I see the Important News page about profile changes with a log/in request on the right side. In Preferences, I set a custom URL for my homepage. That did not change what I see first when I open Firefox 76. I never sign out, just open and close the Firefox window, and all it is set to save all of my login information. How can I go straight to my home tab without seeing this one about profiles changes?

76.0.1 Firefox 10.13.6 Mac os

I ran Malwarebyetes and in restarting, it took a long time, after which ALL my bookmarks were gone. I cannot use the import/restore b/c while it shows the bookmark dates, when click to restore it says "unable to import the process file" on ANY dare.

    WHen I restart computer, a red banner said toolbar and bookmarks won't display.THis can be caused by security software, read more....bla bla!
  I have sync and that doesn't restore anything-bookmarks or toolbar!!!

I called Apple and they said it was b/c they wanted me to upgrad os system to Catalina, which I am not willling to do yet!!

I also have an external hard drive and iCloud/time machine backups, but I can't get those to be accepted into the Firefox sidebar and toolbar--they just show up as quick view documents!!

Why the heck is there no phone support?!?!? Help!?!!
