The following funtions do not and have not worked for a long time:

1) Deleting web history: nothing works to delete websites either individually, for time periods or using any other decision criteria

2) Organizing bookmarks alphabetically: None of the suggestions or procedures listed as a method to do so work. I've tried several times-no result.

3) Recovering open webpages after an update or any other time. This doesn't work either. Last time I tried, the only thing that worked was to search history and reactivate the website.

It's hard to understand why none of these funtions, which used to work, no longer do so. I'm seriously contemplating using another browser.

A disappointed customer.

Hi,

I use firefox on both a work and home computer, as well as my phone (iOS). I have sync active on all three devices, yet the synced tabs only ever shows one device's tabs. On both computers, the iOS tabs are all that displays in synced tabs, and on iOS, only one of the two computer's tabs are shown, and often with the wrong name - I haven't found out what determines which computer's tabs shows in the synced tabs menu or which name is used, but it definitely isn't which computer was used more recently, for either requirement.

After having to reboot because of a storm, Firefox will not open. The icon bounces and that's it. Once in a great while I'll fiddle with it trying again and again and it opens. In order to keep using it I have to clear the start up cache before shutting it down. This last time I came to you via Safari. Had to reset my password and the email link you sent opened Firefox when it wouldn't open before. Odd. Before I force-quit to try again it shows/reads Firefox not responding and I force quit. And yes, I always keep up with the updates. I started using Mozilla products on my first Mac back in 2000. I am a dyed in the wool Lizard fan but ... I have downloaded a fresh copy of Firefox using Safari. I don't want to have to use it again. Gilbert

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

Firefox 103.0.2 is running but seems to be preventing the iMac screen saver from functioning and appears in the iMac Activity Monitor with a "Yes" notation in the Preventing Sleep column.

Running "Refresh Firefox" seems to briefly fix the problem but it soon returns.

Any suggestions on why this happens and how to restore reliability to the screen saver?

I am using Mac Catalina version 10.15.7 with the newest version of Firefox and my "Save Page As" dialog box got much bigger. I have tried to move my cursor to the edges of the dialog box so I can drag the box edges to make it smaller but the little arrow that appears can only make it bigger not smaller. How can I go back to the regular default "Save Page As" dialog box that I had before? I have included a screen capture of the big dialog box and a picture of the regular dialog box. Thank you.

Using the Nightly build with support for the JXL (JPEG XL) image format, I am able to open JXL images. However, the images are severely degraded if the source image is a 32-bit (HDR) image. The highlight values above SDR white are clipped. Effectively, the image is ruined.

So while I can view HDR videos just fine in Firefox using a properly configured HDR monitor (Apple Pro Display XDR), HDR photos do not work.

Does the roadmap for JXL support include plans to support HDR?

Youtube stops working after 2 to 3 days of every fresh reinstall on my Macbook Pro M1Pro device. The video just keeps loading forever, rest assured that it is not an internet issue as i am able to play the same video in other browsers at the same time. A reinstall (removing Firefox System files) always works but is not a permanent solution. I am using Firefox since 10+ years and do not want to shift to any other browser. Please help.
