Undesired Bounce Back with macOS Keyboard Shortcut for 'Move Window to Right Side of Screen'

In macOS you can set up a global keyboard shortcut for the Move Window to Right Side of Screen command via System Settings > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts.... In most apps that support the Move Window to... commands, this will simply move the window to the desired side of the screen when the key combo is pressed.

However, in Firefox the key combo will start the animation as normal but the window will then bounce back to its original location. It's only when the command is activated via a keyboard shortcut that it does the bounce back behavior, though; the command works as intended when activated from the Window menu in the menu bar or from Option + green button in the top left of the window.

The key combo I set up was Shift + Option + Command + Right Arrow, but I've also tried a couple of different key combos and they all did the same bounce back behavior. I've tried it on machines with different versions of macOS (Sonoma beta and Ventura) with the same result. The bounce back behavior also effects the Move Window to Left Side of Screen command.

My Wife and I are both 75 years old and have huge problems coping with modern computer technology. We have 3 computers with Ubuntu and Firefox. We find that we are able to successfully connect with most of our accounts. With some accounts like Royal Bank, Nextdoor, Koodo, TD Bank, Canadian Government we get in but only get a blank page and cannot go further. Accounts have told us the problem is Firefox and that we need to change to either Chrome or Edge. We have been with Ubuntu and Firefox since 2006, love both and do not want to change.

Firefox browser update prompt

I am suddenly getting pop-up windows from "Firefox Software Updater" as soon as I click the Firefox icon on my desktop (Windows 11) and laptop (Windows 10). The Firefox log in the pop-up is not in color, so I am immediately suspicious. The pop-up window did not happen on my laptop yesterday, but I got it on my desktop today, for the first time. I have answered "no" to the "do you want this app to make changes to this computer?". Is this legit from Mozilla? Usually, the browser updates automatically when I click the icon, saying I am now using the latest version of Firefox. Thank you.

For the last two months since November 2023), log-in to the Wells Fargo online bank site no longer goes past the log-in page. If I use Edge log-in works fine. I use private browsing on Firefox, but I always have. I have Firefox password enabled, but I always decline to use it for online banking when it pops up (and it doesn't matter if I accept it, still no log-in on Firefox).

I don't want to use Edge but Firefox no longer is working on this task for me.

I'm having the exact same problem as what was originally mentioned in this post from 4 years ago.

The "chosen solution" was to exit firefox through the hamburger menu, which I find to be absolutely ridiculous. You mean to tell me that even though I close EVERY OTHER APPLICATION either using the "X" close button or a custom keybinding that I've set for my own personal convenience, firefox requires me to exit through a menu every time in order to make it behave the way I've told it to? No. Absolutely not. If I tell firefox that I don't want it to save my last session, that means I DON'T WANT IT TO SAVE MY LAST SESSION. If I've deselected the "open previous windows and tabs" option in the settings, then under no circumstances should it be trying to open my previous windows and tabs.

I've tried the suggestion to change the value of browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes from 1 to 0. The problem persists, I assume because firefox considers being closed using the close button to be a "crash", which is interesting.

I the other suggestion further down in the thread was to set browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash from true to false, which will prevent firefox from recovering a session from a crash. This is hardly an appropriate solution. I want firefox to resume my last session if there is a legitimate (key word LEGITIMATE) crash, because my session was closed against my will due to something that went wrong. Being able to recover my last session in such a situation is nice. I do not, however, want firefox to resume my last session when I explicitly closed the last session myself, which would be the difference between a crash recovery and restoring a previous session. If no crash occurred, I don't need a crash recovery, and aside from a crash, I don't want my previous session to be restored.

Are there any solutions to this at all? Because this is one of the biggest reasons why I stopped using firefox. I want to come back to firefox because everything else that's worth using is either dog shit, or Chromium-based (i.e. also dog shit). However, I find this broken feature to be somewhat of a security issue. If a bad actor somehow gains access to my system, I don't want him to be able to open firefox and have access to my last browser session because I closed firefox using a keyboard shortcut instead of closing it through a goddamned menu.

I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, different adblocks-no improvement. No extension software is showing on my toolbar and selecting the extensions software just brings up a suggested extensions.
