Subject says it all. First notice of the problem was when I couldn't send tabs to my mini so I logged out of sync on that computer and tried to log back in. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

This is what I get:

Why Mozilla-Developer-Network/MDN Needs Access Into My GitHub Or Google Account To Login !? & Why MDN Does Not Allow To Use Mozilla Account Based Login ? isn't it Violation Of Privacy ?

Hi, i absolutely do-not-like & do-not-approve that Mozilla Dev Network MDN https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/ is FORCING/COERCING us/users TO GAIN (READ+WRITE OR ANY-OTHER) ACCESS INTO MY/USER'S GITHUB OR GOOGLE ACCOUNT to login into MOZILLA MDN site. This is clear Anti-privacy & Anti-Security activity, VIOLATION of PRIVACY-RIGHTS.

Any users can create an account in Mozilla here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/accounts/

So WHY MDN does not allow to use that to login/access into MDN site ?! and instead FORCING users to use GitHub/Google account access based login ?

Why should i give "MOZILLA", a 3rd-party, VARIOUS-TYPES-OF-ACCESS into my Google/GitHub account ? !! !! !! !! just to view documents from Mozilla developer network site, Or to get Firefox Dev Tools, etc, etc !!

my accounts are used for my control over my projects & to have my control over my private data/emails. even a tiny moment of access into any such private account means PRIVACY is LOST, & NOT-PRIVATE anymore.

Mozilla can send a code into my email & i/user can post that code to Mozilla, to prove i'm/user-is the owner of the email-adrs ... and for entire world , this type of proof is sufficient (though not perfect).

So WHY MOZILLA IS NOT FIXING THIS/THESE ISSUES ?

If Mozilla need to send notification to me, it can use my email-address. if Mozilla needs to add/notify in GitHub in my projects, then it can use its own GitHub account to do so with specific direct MENTION to user(by using user's github-ID) , or it can send me/user specific code over email that i or a user can add myself/themselves. A user can also give Mozilla-bot a membership in their Github project to publish, or notify something. etc. etc. there is always alternative & PRIVACY-RESPECTING & better-security-practice solutions , w/o giving/having FULL-or-PARTIAL access into someone's GitHub/Google account.

I have google.com as my home page. It used to be (until recently) that when I created a new tab with the google.com home page, the cursor was immediately in the search textbox in the middle of the page and I could start typing. Now, the cursor starts out at the URL bar at the top of the window instead. How do I get the old behavior back?

I am developing a webrtc site and I have four (4) peer connection objects. The first peer object successfully connects to the first client. When the second client attempts to connect, firefox crashes on this call:

peer.setRemoteDescription(rmd);

The same call succeeds without problems on chrome and four (4) separate clients can connect on chrome.

I have submitted a crash report and below is thr crash ID:

bp-829d5bad-23a4-40aa-82aa-2a8910200916

At this point I think this is a firefox issue.

With Firefox 80.0.1 on macOS 10.13.6 attempting to use Firefox->Services->New TextEdit Window Containing Selection on a bit of selected text in a web page consistently returns the error: "Service failed. Couldn’t open the selection. There might be an internal error or a performance problem, or the source application may be providing text of invalid type in the service request. Please try the operation a second time. If that doesn’t work, copy/paste the selection into TextEdit."

This works in Safari and Chrome, so I am confused and frustrated that it does not seem to work in Firefox.

Could this be a bug in Firefox? Unfortunately, I don't know how to read or wrote computer code. All I know is that this doesn't work for me.

Hi there,

I'm currently running macOS 10.15.6 and Firefox 80.0.1.

I've not been able to get the Home and End keys on my keyboard to jump to the beginning and end of the URL inside the address bar for a while now. I know on macOS I can hit command+left and command+right to achieve the same behaviour. But so many sites (not this one; but Google Docs, reddit, etc) support the Home and End key behaviours.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to report bugs / feature requests, but maybe the community knows how I can even mimic this behaviour with extensions.

Thanks for reading!

I would like to clear/delete ALL UNPINNED top sites thumbnails at once. Similar question was posted over three years ago... no solution was ever given. Having to go through them one at at time, clicking Delete from History, confirming, over and over and over, is a real pain. If the info is stored in a sql database table or even a json, it would at least be a quicker way! AND some of the thumbnails require multiple click to finally get rid of! Can you help?

Relatively minor problem, but: lately, if I enter text too quickly after opening a new tab, the text that I entered into the search bar gets deleted. Maybe half a second or so after opening the tab, this stops and the text enters normally. But, this is frustrating for navigating or searching from new tabs.

Any way to fix this? I am using Firefox 80.0.1 on a Mac. I am also using the Tabliss extension, if that matters.

- on my Macbook Air i've just changed from using Safari to Firefox. I synchronized Firefox on all my devices (IPhone, IPad). However, using firefox, passwords from ICloud (the server) are not automatically enetered if I visit a website. Since apple generated these passwords it's quite a challange to enter them all by hand. There must be a more efficient solution. In short: how can i allow Firefox to use the passwords stored in my account on ICloud? - how do I transfer my favorites from safari in Firefox (the import tool only gives the option to import bookmarks).

I do hope someone can help me; many thanx in advance, anyway.

Starting last night, I have noticed that random tabs get "stuck" and I am unable to click on them to activate the page or close them.

Other tabs are unaffected and after about 30 seconds, the affected tab will become responsive.

I have noticed that the problem always occurs on the same tabs once the problem starts, and will continue to affect that tab if I navigate to a different website.

I have not added any additional add-ins and have tried disabling existing add-ins, without success.

Could someone please provide some methode to fix this issue?

I use a Logitech MX Master mouse as my primary pointing device on my laptop (2015 MacBook Air). I use Logitech's options software (Logi Options) to set custom bindings for the buttons on the mouse. I have what would typically be considered the forward/back page keys to adjust volume up and down, a scroll wheel click is still just Mouse 3, and the gesture button on the side of the mouse is set to zoom in/out with the scroll wheel while it is depressed.

Firefox is the only browser that doesn't support the inputs from my mouse. How do I correct this?

Thanks!

My favoured browser is Firefox on a MacBook Pro mid 2010 with external monitor attached! It plays embedded video better than any chrome browser I have tried with no jitter! However with certain websites and in particular MSNBC News website, the video stream launches as expected and like chrome browsers takes a few seconds to adjust up the resolution and smooth out jaggies but then the video stops and audio continues! Refreshing the page solves the problem! This does not happen on chrome based browsers (although on my Mac, they don't play embedded viseo as well as Firefox! Using 80.0.1 Any thoughts?
