I'm using 78.0.2 (64-bit) Firefox on Mac OS and using a windows keyboard. Since most commands use cmd key and not ctrl key, it's a bit awkward on my current keyboard. Also, my mouse buttons which are programmed to go back don't work in Firefox. They work in chrome. Where do I access keybinding settings and how can I modify them? Thanks.

With the new Firefox update Roblox has stopped launching correctly. When I click on a game I want to play in the Roblox website, and pop-up shows up asking where I want to launch the game link. I go into my application, select Roblox, then click open link in this application. The problem is that instead of launching the game in Roblox, it just opens the Roblox website in a new tab. This problem is specific to Firefox, Chrome and Safari work just fine.

Hi, my firefox started to crash regularly for a few months. I have seen it crash while on idle, while changing tabs, while opening ne tabs... i.e. no repetable pattern. Morever, I couldn't figure out the reason since all the crash reports turned different reasons for each crush. It has now become hourly crashes which really started to affect my workflow. Could you please help?

The latest is I can't search from the search bar with a new tab. This is after doing a migration. I erased Firefox and reinstalled the app and all of my data was still there. I reopened the session as if I had just closed a session and I was logged into gmail. So clearly Mozilla's instructions on deleting the app on MAC doesn't work. Recycle bin. How do you literally delete the app?

Hoping deletion will solve the issue of not being able to hit enter in the search bar to perform a google search, or click the arrow. Nothing works.

Further, I'm logged into this browser, yet when the tabs disappear I can't reaccess them. What's the point of logging into a browser if it doesn't remember the tabs?

Recently, I think since updating to 78.0.2, after pressing the Print button on the webpage it takes 10-20 seconds for the print dialogue box to open, rather than opening instantly. This seems to be the case for all websites I have tried. However, if I select Print from the File menu or use Cmd P, the dialogue appears instantly. I am using Mac OS 10.12.6. Please let me know if there is a setting to change to prevent this printing delay. Also, there is no delay in the print dialogue opening if I use a different browser (Chrome).

I'm having a problem making outgoing phone calls from Google Hangouts from my Firefox 78.0.1 browser on my Mac running OS 10.13.6 High Sierra. Can anyone tell me what to do to get this working? Every once in a while it works, but most of the time it will not. I have the same issue when I try doing it via Chat out of my Gmail account.

What happens is that when I execute to dial the number, the dialer pops up and instantly closes, and the call does not go through. That dialer will not stay open, and it must forthe call to work. This happens whether I try to use it online from https://hangouts.google.com/ or out of a Gmail e-mail account via Google Chat, which is included in the e-mail account.

I prefer to use Firefox rather than Google Chrome. But in testing, I find I can make outgoing calls from Chrome.

Once in a while, this works. In my Google search, I did find one assertion that it no longer will work out of Firefox because Firefox has stopped supporting plug ins (I had no idea -- then Flash also should not work, but it does, I can watch flash videos, so I'm doubtful plugin support is the issue).

Yet, I do find that Firefox actually offers a Google Hangouts add on! I don't see how that could be if it can't be supported for lack of a plugin. I installed that, closed and reopened Firefox, and tried to dial out of it. Same problem, dialer flashed open and closed, it did not dial out.

Again, I note, sometimes, rarely it seems, it will work. It should not do even that if it requires a plugin that is not there. I didn't see anything in settings that I would expect could be related.

I also note, I have tested it on a Windows 10 laptop, again out of the current Firefox, and same issue. So it doesn't appear the problem is necessarily linked to my Mac, its linked to Firefox. I suspect Firefox will have to do something to be compatible with Google Hangouts and Google Chat.
