Running Firefox 82.0.3 on MacOS 11.0.1 (Big Sur) -

If I go to full screen mode with Firefox, and then let my cursor get to close to the top of the window, it activates the dop-down of the menu bar. That's supposed to happen. But the bar is blank (the menu bar items appear above it), and hides tabs. And sliding my cursor away, the bar does not go away. Stuck. And can't resize Facebook to regular view to get rid of it. Need to close it and start over.

Thoughts?

Both my PCs were downloading from you tube perfectly, until two days ago, when the download button on both PCs disappeared, almost at the same time. As the people at Video Droid do not have an answer, I must assume the problem lies with Firefox. I hope we are not returning to the days when every update from Mozilla fucked up. Kindly explain how I can fix this mess, or how I can backdate to an earlier Firefox that worked properly. To be quite honest with you, I’m not the slightest bit interested in your new smart arse add ons, and tricks, all I want is a browser that works for me, not one that loses me days working time because your programmers can’t get their shit together.

MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 Firefox 88.0.1 (64-bit)

All recent Firefox versions have killer bugs.

A new one was actually trying to login here. The error message said 'Cookies must be enabled' and I couldn't get further. Cookies *were* enabled! I shut down Firefox, and re-opened, and all was then OK.

. Web pages with scripts are often completely blank. . Pop-ups are often blank. If not they often don't work, like (critically) Ebay login. . View source (CMD U) works for new pages. However doesn't update if the source page changes.

 I do use <CMD U> from the changed front page.

A silly one is that the keypress to 'Copy Link' was deviously 'A', but not shown. It has now changed to 'L' and still not shown. Why? I very much prefer Firefox, and all the many shortcuts are memorised (well bar 'L' (8-)# )

However I so often now have to use Safari or Chrome to get around the bugs. This is a pain as the interfaces are different, and specifically 'View Source' never has a shortcut key. They also have their own bugs!

I need to view a cached webpage as it was on a particular date without Firefox automatically refreshing the page once I retrieve it from History. Example: I attempted to login to an employer's website and received an error message that I would need to reapply. I went back to said website yesterday and was able to login to my employee profile. How can I pull up the page from my History showing the error message where I wasn't able to login and the error message was displayed?

Hi guys, hope someone might be able help, much appreciated! My organization forced us to auto-update win10 & it seemed they install "another" firefox than the one I normally used (Pic 2 - Firefox Quantum) & it seemed my firefox I normally used also was updated with this [Pic 1 - 78.10.1esr (64-bit)]. This is a mess!!!! After this erupted updates, everything was gone, seemed like Firefox has created new profile (afresh) for those "2" firefox.

I was digging on this forum, none was helping. So... 1. There was NO "old firefox" folder on desktop. 2. Tons of articles about "about:profiles" but not sure how it worked as it did not work for me, I was trying to look in "both" Firefox and click "Launch profile in new browser" rather than go to my "old profile", it seemed to create "default-esr-1...2...3 etc" as in Pic 3 & 4.

I am not very techie, pls someone could give some advice how to solve this a step by step would be wonderful.

Although I love using Firefox, this is sooo stressful & I'm pulling my hair out!

PS. Chrome on the other hand, had no issues with this at all, after the win10 update, Chrome just simple retained everything & let me restore all of session I was working on before, nothing lost from fav & apps either.

There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.

FF 88/widevine bug with Amazon prime videos not playing HD 1080p

Whenever I play a video on amazon prime thru FF 88 it is SD. When I go to the options for video it says HD is unavailable even if best is selected. When the video first plays the HD icon will come up for about a second, but faded, than go away right after. Usually when it does that it becomes solid white and shows HD at 1080. I'm using Win 10 64-bit Pro 20H2.

When I try watching the same videos in Chrome I have no issues and the content plays fine in HD 1080p.

I tried removing all history, refreshing FF, uninstalling and re-installing my NVIDIA drivers but same issue. I am on 88.0. No add ons or themes. Just default FF after refresh. Nothing helps.

I have seen other reports of widevine crashing but I dont have that issue. FF just wont play Amazon video in HD anymore.

Edit:

After trying some things and completely uninstalling firefox from system and all folders I finally got Amazon to play HD 1080p content again, but only a short while.

For some reason on refreshed or completely new installs of FF 88 amazon would have issues and only play SD. Even if all folders were deleted before install. When I installed the previous version of FF to 87 content was once again playing back at HD 1080p. I than updated to 88 and it was ok but only for a bit.

Even though FF 87 installed and updated widevine, FF version 88 would update it again a short while later but the version numbers of widevine (4.10.2209.1) stayed the same. Whatever version 88 is doing to widevine it seems to cause a conflict preventing Amazon from playing videos in HD content.

Edit 2:

From my other computer which had not updated to 88 yet had widevine version 4.10.1582. I took all those files and replaced the ones in the folder for 4.10.2209.1. I have updates disabled for widevine now and Amazon is playing HD 1080p once again with no issues. So whatever the update did with widevine it is definitely causing a conflict with playing back HD 1080p content on Amazon Prime video.

OK, sorry if I dont know all the technical jargon but here are a couple issues I have been having. Currently using FF88.0 on Windows 10 Home edition.

A few updates ago I noticed when I go to print a page from the internet (specifically eBay Order Details) it no longer prints the default auction picture as it appears on the screen but enlarges it up to the original download size. This make the shrink to fit option no longer work properly. So in order to get all of the information I need on one page of print I have to constantly change the size from 40-60% to make it work. Frustrating and time wasting.

Second issue: This one just started with the last update. I use a Rollo label printer and I had everything set up where it worked just fine. After the last update it prints half labels and I cant get it to adjust back properly. Huge issue and time waster.

On average I feel like this slows me down 15-30 minutes a day total.
