My old iMac's Firefox browser was automatically changed to ESR (by Firefox) since the computer could no longer update the operating system through Apple (obsolete). When I purchased a new iMac and migrated my data to the new computer, Firefox ESR is still the browser, and says it is up to date. I am assuming I should get the most current regular Firefox version, but don't know if there is an easy way to change the version and preserve all my saved passwords, logins, bookmarks, etc. Looking for guidance. Thanks

FIrefox v113 on MacOS converts every keystroke entry in Wordle into a FIND command to search the web page for that character. The Wordle site is: https://www.nytimes.com/games/wordle/index.html. Safari handles Wordle perfectly. This problem seems to have begun with Firefox v113. Please give it a try and tell me what to modify. Problems occurs even when I restart Firefox with all add-on extensions disabled.

On Mac I just logged in and nothing happend. Like no any import was made. No any add-on was installed automatically.

Do I have to install everything manually?

One of the main reasons I use Firefox is the ability to enter the address bar and press "Tab" to go to the next option instead of pressing the down arrow like in some other browsers. The problem I'm encountering is when I want to get to something further down the list, it's all of the sudden tabbing to this little 3 dot menu that has "Remove from history" and "Learn More".

I use this feature a lot to visit past pages for researching, so I'm wondering is this 3 dot menu new? Is there a way to disable it? I've attached a screenshot to hopefully more clearly describe what I'm talking about.

(may have the wrong 'topic' from drop-down list) MacOS Ventura 13.4 I've tried this with Safari, Chrome and now Opera - FireFox is the only one that gets an error: "We’re sorry. Due to technical issues we are unable to process your request at this time. Please try again later."

This happens when on the TD bank site when I try to get to my "Statements & Documents" session. I've contacted TD and they won't provide what is going on to cause the above error to be generated, and because other browsers aren't having a problem it's now a Firefox issue.

I'm not sure how to proceed since I can't get further details from TD bank and don't see what needs to change to allow Firefox to work.

Any suggestions as to what setting or debugging I can try appreciated.

HELLO! I've got 2 MacBook Pro’s- #1= OS-Ventura/ #2= OS-HighSierra:

I'm having trouble bookmarking individual item page at Lowes.com. Hoping someone can help me with this problem. I "used" to be able to save an individual item page I want research later from Lowe's in my Bookmarks. When I go to access it later I get this message:

Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://www.lowes.com/pd/No-Dig-Actual-3-37-ft-x-4-12-ft-Grand-Empire-Powder-coated-Steel-Pressed-Point-Decorative-Metal-Fence-Panel/3028522" on this server. Reference #18.cc69dc17.1685628277.1a0b49de.

However I can save the whole page showing “all” the items with no problems. This happens on both Macs, 2 different OS. I have deleted cookies, cache, history continually and nothing works. It happens in Safe Mode as well, I even refreshed FireFox and it still happens. It happens in Safari also.

So I ask myself why "now" is this happening when it never did before? Is there a setting I need to look at? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

I have tried to dump the preferences, clear cache, restart, clear history.

I am using Firefox Developer Edition in a work environment that only saves directories between weekly restarts by explicitly managed rules. As a result of some missing folders from my weekly restarts, I need to sign in to my Firefox account and enable sync each week. Currently my machine retains the %APPDATA%/Mozilla and %LOCALAPPDATA%/Mozilla directories + children.

What other directories are needed by Firefox Developer Edition in Windows to retain the user profile/syncing, et. al.?

Thank you for your time!

Hello. I run Firefox as my main laptop (Mac) browser. I have added Zotero to manage my writing reference citation library, and have downloaded the current Zotero Connector for Firefox. I should be able to add references from online, by using the Zotero save icon that should appear on my Firefox toolbar. But this icon is nowhere to be seen and I cannot see how to make it appear. The whole advantage of Zotero for me as a writing academic is pinned to this function, so I am anxious to get it working. How can I get the Zotero save icon in its proper place on my Firefox toolbar, just to the right of the search window? Many thanks
