I cannot set my preferences because the preferences menu will not display when I select Command, from the pulldown menu under Firefox in the top left banner. I am stuck with whatever this is. I cannot set my search engine. I cannot set my popup preference. I cannot set any preference. I use Mac BigSur 11.5.2. I can't share data. I am having trouble streaming my favorite radio station because I cannot reset my popup preference for the station. Nor can I use my search engine: DuckDuckGo without typing it into the Start search box because I cannot set my search engine preference. I cannot set other preferences because it seems I don't have any options since I can't get the preference menu.

I am constantly unable to access websites. My data seems to clog up. I'm in my 70's and have no patience or training for sifting though numerous fixes and possible solutions. I've done my best with no improvement. My husband is having the same issues on his computer. All my previous efforts erase my sign ins and require me to constantly enter new sign in information for my common websites. I can use Safari and Chrome without these issues so unless I get some form of personalized help that doesn't require a great deal of technological skill, I'm leaving this browser greatly disappointed in the lack of support.

Since I updated Firefox (I'm on a Mac with Catalina OS) there are all these irritating lines that shoot out from the text when I type or move the browser. Tried deleting and reloading and it's still happening. Bummed because I think what you all are doing is great such that I donated to the mozilla foundation--but this is driving me nuts enough that I'm going back to Chrome :-(

Since this horrid update this message turns up every time I try to move to the next page on a shopping website and prevents me from actually completing the transaction, since each time I hit allow it refreshes the PREVIOUS page so I never move forward. I read the suggestion to change about:config but couldn't manage to do that. Do I have to switch to Chrome to get things done?

firefox doesn't work right on facebook and yahoo mail, while other browsers have no problem. It either operates extremely slowly or just doesn't function and freezes. On facebook many times areas show up blank and therefore non functional. Functions on yahoomail also at times just don't work. When I go to chrome or safari there is normal functioning. I did a refresh of firefox and it generally worked a bit faster but didn't improve the problems I just described. Also for your info I've spent a very very long time trying to find how to contact you. You really don't make it easy. I have been using firefox mainly for many years and prefer it to other browsers, but if it doesn't work properly are needed websites, then of course I will have to discontinue. I hope you can fix the problem. I have a macbook air, don't know how you can fix it if it's not a general problem. Hope you all do. Thanks. Samana Fisher

All my other applications and browser apps show a "toolbar", the uppermost edge of my screen, with "Firefox" and bookmarks, etc. It is just gone. I can't figure out why it is not showing up or available. I am not in full screen mode, although that hides the bar on top also. Mac OS 10.11.6, preferences says latest available update, although I cant tell because I can't set the "About" Firefox button.
