He visto que los colores en general que muestra Firefox son mucho más saturados, aquí les comparto una imagen comparativa de solo una página, pero creo que pasa con todas, alguna idea de por qué y cómo solucionarlo? porque por otro lado, cómo saber cuáles son los colores verdaderos? esas páginas de la imagen estaban en la misma pantalla, así que no tiene que ver con calibración de monitor y así :S

In using FireFox on my 27" iMac running MacOs 11.4 Facebook is not working. If I click on the Account - Nothing happens, Click on Massages - I get a black screen, Clicking on Notifications - I get a Black screen. In fact if i click on the following I also get a black screen Groups, Pages, marketplace and watch.

I did a reinstall, and I get the same issues. I am thinking of doing a complete un-install and then re-install to see if that works.

I did do a backup of my bookmarks, but what about my save passwords and stuff, I need to look at how to save them as well.

Every time I close Firefox and open it again, I go to YouTube, and it has me signed out, and I have to sign back in again. Once I have signed in, I can still refresh the page and still be signed in, or open another tab with YouTube with me signed in, but if I close Firefox and open it again, and go to YouTube, I am signed out. Any help would be appreciated Thanks

I'm on a Mac with the latest OS, no new security or software updates available. Every day for about 4 months, Firefox will just close itself, not crash, just close, and upon reopening has had the search engine changed from my usual (Bing), to something called "Default Search Engine". when typing anything into the search bar, after an extremely quick flash of a page that says not secure, I'm sent to Yahoo. I've done refreshes multiple times, uninstalled and reinstalled add-ons, and tried to look in my system files for anything suspicious, but my understanding of them is pretty elementary. I'm suspecting some sort of malware as the most likely source, but if anybody can help me with this I would really appreciate it. It's happened when using Chrome too.

I have had my tabs underneath the bookmare toolbar by use of a css file ever since Firefox moved them up to the top. In the latest updates of Firefox, I have now lost multiple tabs completely. I can only see them if I go into the Troubleshoot mode. I have disabled all hardware acceleration, all other add-ons, and gone to the default theme. The only plug-ins are OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.. They are set to update automatically. When I restart Firefox, it goes back to multiple tabs not appearing.

I am frustrated to the max. As a user who goes way back to Netscape (pre MS Explorer and before even Windows 3.0 days--late 1980s and on), I like being able to customize. I started using Firefox, because Netscape was discontinued, and Firefox was the most like it at that point, and MS Explorer was still pretty new. I liked being able to find things where they were, and I won't apologize for being a creature of habit. I do NOT like Edge or Chrome.

How do I get my Firefox to show all the tabs?

Hi, my Firefox browser will crash about once a day, every several hours, causing me to have to restart my computer. I have followed the tips above to check RAM for errors with none found, tried running Firefox in Troubleshoot mode (it still crashed) and have updated several times to the newest version over the last year, still with crashing. I'm following this message with error codes. Thanks for your help.
