I'm using macbook, firefox version 82.0.

My firefox doesn't not startup with previous sessions. it only shows one blank tab no matter what I had when I closed it. happens both when I simply close it or completely quit it. I marked the "restore previous session" on the startup menu in the preference, didn't help or had any change.

I have tried to clear my cache from my computer multiple times by using the Mozilla instructions and the 670 cache is still there. It is not clearing. I feel that I should delete Mozilla and reinstall. Will this work or is there a better way to clear cache other than using the Mozilla worthless instructions that do not work? Can some one help me with this? Contacting Mozilla is impossible thus far. I cannot even add the images from my desktop.

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen

Q: Does anyone know if Firefox has maybe re-instated pinch zoom functionality for Mac users?

Or if there is a decent work around available yet?

And if not, anyone have a good answer as to why Firefox overlooked it in their last major update? Seems rather shortsighted to me. Not being able to pinch zoom on my mac trackpad is highly frustrating. It's pretty much a deal breaker, making me want to migrate back to Chrome or elsewhere. Which is sad, because I thought I'd finally escaped Google for browsing.

Recently I've been experiencing a weird bug when hovering over tabs (see attached screenshot). This started not too long ago, maybe a month or so. It happens randomly and disappears if I relaunch Firefox. Initially I thought that this only occurred when my computer is connected to an external display, I'm using an old MacBook Pro with an integrated Intel graphics chip. So I figured maybe it was struggling with the resolution of my external monitor. But now it happened without it being connected to the monitor. Has someone experienced this?

This is Firefox 82.0 (64-bit) for Apple Macintosh. No matter what I do, i cannot get Firefox browser to NOT STORE cookies, site data, and cache. I exit the browser, start the browser back up and cookies, site data, and cache are ALWAYS still there n matter what my privacy settings are. My expectation is that I want Firefox to AUTOMATICALLY ''''NEVER'''' STORE cookies, site data, and cache. I also want FireFox to AUTOMATICALLY ALWAYS START in private browsing mode.

What settings do I change in order to NEVER have cookies, site data, and cache ever stored and to always automatically start my browser session in Private mode?

The settings as displayed in my attachment do not work and have never worked.

Is there a solution to this?

I have read the reason for this as explained by you but when you visit these sites with another browser you do not see this error.

Also checking the SSL which is what would throw this error (NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY) it is clear that the SSL cert is not the issue. Site checked at ssllabs.com. Please be honest with me and tell me this is not censorship, this seems a little Orwellian and is disappointing!!

Hello,

I've recently encountered an issue where only the first few images on a website load and the rest are just blank. For now, I'm noticing it happening on Boredpanda.com, but there were other sites on which I noticed the same problem. I'm running Firefox 81.0.2 on a MacBook Pro, Mojave. Any advice on how to fix this? I cleared the cache to no avail. The site runs fine on other browsers.

Mac OS X, 10.15.7. Macbook Air 2012. Firefox version 81.

After starting Firefox, I'm taken to a blank page (my default new tab is about:home.) If I type in an address and hit Enter, nothing happens. When I hit enter again, it finally starts to browse. This happens every time I start Firefox fresh. If I hit CMD+Q then start Firefox again, and type in an address, and hit Enter, it does nothing. Not until I try again does it work.

A website I use with Firefox is very, very slow, although it was fast in the past. When I try it on my wife's computer the website is fast, yet my computer is newer and better than hers, so there is some kind of problem in my computer. The website is www.statcan.gc.ca. I can access Twitter and numerous other websites on my computer with no problems, but this one is deathly slow. Trouble is...I use it all the time.

I am running macOS Catalina Ver 10.15.7 on a Mac Pro. I removed Adobe Flash, emptied the cache, history, cookies, reinstalled Firefox and rebooted my computer. Did not help. The statcan website worked fine for years and now it is deathly slow, apparently for me only. Other sites are normal speed. I am puzzled. Any suggestions appreciated.

I've been using Firefox for years without any issues. I recently added Facebook Container to my add-ons. Guess I can't tell if it's working, or not, but...

I have been having some real issues in FB for a few weeks, now, and am wondering if it is because of Facebook Container.

Responses are very laggy and jerky. When I place my cursor onto the Like button, the other options take some time to pop up. They will also take some time to show up once I click on them. If I accidentally cursor over the date and time line under a person's name, that black pop up box will stay popped up for a long, long time. That wouldn't be so bad, but it often covers text I'm trying to read. Often, when I try to click on the Like button, especially for a picture, it will lag, then the picture will pop open. In general, FB is just very laggy and jumpy.

Any ideas? Could it be FB Container causing these issues?
