What is going on??? I've used flash to stream the news channels on a particular site, for years, on my old iMac, and Macbook Pro, now I have a brand new iMac, and Firefox won't run it, doesn't even give me the option to use it, and the feature in preferences that allows me to list exceptions to not playing video or audio shows no way to ADD a site, making it completely useless! What is causing this dysfunction?

As the image shows, I try to add this website, but there's no way to do it, and there's no sites shown in the window, now. So HOW do I get them in the window??

Hello, I am inquiring how to setup text replacements in FireFox i.e. TY = Thank You It is the same exact tool on Mac OS Mojave in Preferences - Keyboard - Text I would like to setup some per-defined rules that automatically change my text as I type. For instance, when typing "TY" in Firefox, when I hit the space bar, I would like it to promptly change the "TY" to "Thank you" (without quotes).

This would help a lot with my productivity at work. I am not sure if there is a way to enable my text replacement shortcuts setup on my Mac to work in Firefox, or if there is some sort of Add-On that would achieve this.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated!

Hi there!

I'm using Firefox Quantum 69.0.1 (64-bit) and I cannot get rid of the additional status bar with the URL that shows up when I hoover over the link on the website (what I mean is depicted in the attachment).

I have tried creating userChrome.css file inside chrome folder in my profile to hide status-bar display, but apparently this solution does not work anymore.

Any help highly appreciated.

Bing opens every time I open up Firefox. I hate Bing and have searched everywhere for a way to get rid of it. I finally found in about:config there is a line which says browser.newtab.url modified string http://www.bing.com etc etc I reckon this might be the culprit, but I daren't alter anything because I don't know what I am doing. I did try "Reset" but it didn't make any difference, Bing reappeared. Any help welcome. Many thanks.

How to turn off *distracting* display of trackers blocked in bottom right of web pages for Firefox 69?

I appreciate that Firefox is now blocking third party trackers. But I can't stand having a distracting purple display of trackers blocked in every web page. That is unacceptable to me and I want a way to turn off that distracting display on *every* web page.

I find it ironic that distracting ads are being removed (good!) but Firefox developers thought it was a smart idea to *add* its own distracting information on web pages (sheesh -- at least could we have the option to put that tracker summary in the menu bar? -- I would ideally prefer being able to abolish it from even being seen there).

I am a software developer who doesn't care for web page pollution or distraction from the real content, and a tracker blocking summary in my face on every page is definitely pollution.

I'm going back to Chrome because of this one issue (the ad blocker I use only puts its summary count in the menu bar).

Firefox really goofed by adding its own "ad" on *every* web page for its new feature. Now I need a blocker for those ads!

For as long as I can remember, all my new tabs opened into a Google search window. But now, they open into a Search Mozilla Support window. That's not what I want -- I want to restore the Google search window.

I've checked the forums, and followed the advice on changing this: Settings > Search > One-Click Search Engines.

That doesn't work for me, because Mozilla Support is selected as my search engine, and the Restore Default Search Engines button is greyed out. When I click the tab for Find More Search Engines, there's no sign of Google.

Does Mozilla hate Google?

I'm using Firefox 69.0.2 on a 2017 iMac running OS Mojave, 10.14.5.

Thanks for any help!

Hi! I'm using Firefox on my Mac. Last update. My problem is simple: when I close Firefox, it doesn't remember the last size of the window. So, for example, I normally use it on the full dimension of the screen (but not in full size: I'll post a picture to explain, because I'm not good with words hahah). Instead, when I relaunch it, it opens like in small size (I'll post a picture of that, too). Is there something that I can do? Thx.

Seems to have completely started on its own. I fixed the same issue last week with a proper uninstall and reinstall of Firefox, but this week the same issue has returned. Going back and forth between tabs is also quite slow. I am still running Windows 7 professional 64-bit. I currently run Firefox Quantum 69.0 (64-bit). The same is on my other Windows 7 and Windows 10 PCs and I do not have the same issue. IE and Google chrome on this PC also do not experience the same issue. I cannot pin this to any Windows update(s) or other software installation(s) or updates. How can I fix this and continue to have all the same tabs open up on my home startup without getting this frustrating delay as well as not getting the delays when going from tab to tab?
