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!

Hello!

I perform some translations through address bar searches, which use the URL of a translation engine (Bing/Google translate).

One thing that I couldn't solve is how to encode newlines. Sometimes, the text to translate includes newlines. When I copy/paste, the address bar flattens the text, entirely removing the newlines. For longer texts, this makes reading the translated text more difficult, because the result is a single, very long, line.

I've tried pasting "%0A" and "\n", but they are encoded.

Is there any way to encode a newline via copy/paste into the address bar search URL?

Thanks.

I wanted to check a Hertz reservation. I typed Hertz into the Firefox bar at the top and selected the first entry that had the Hertz logo followed by https:\\www.Hertz.com. I clicked that entry and only a white page came up. I tried reloading and nothing happened. Eventually, I opened a new window and again typed Hertz in the bar. This time i scrolled way down and found a google symbol next to the word Hertz. I clicked that and it worked. How can I automatically search with Google so that I don't have trouble accessing sites?

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.

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.
