Every time I restart my computer I get logged out of my Firefox account. This does not happen when I close the browser only when I shutdown or restart my computer. I have tried removing add-ons and also making sure the browser remembers cookies when it closes. Is there a way so Firefox won't log me out and have to sign into sync after a computer restart?

Developer Tools Can't Open Links in Background Tab

Summary: Opening a file from the Network Developer Tools tab will always become the foreground tab.

Details:

  • Firefox version: 77.0.1 (64-bit)
  • OS Version: 10.15.4 (19E287)

I'm using the Developer Tools Network tab, and would like to quickly view the sources of multiple files. When you right click a file's URL you can Open In New Tab, but it will not open as a background tab. No combination of keys will do it, it should just be command+click.

Reproduction:

  1. Visit any website
  2. Press ⌘⌥E to open Network tab
  3. Reload page
  4. Right click anything in the File column
  5. File opens in new active tab no matter what

I am running FF 77 on my MacOS on Retina display. Both, TAB text size and Bookmark toolbar height and text are very small. I searched the web and found articles about creating userChrome.css but I could not find anything to help me with customizing these values. Anyone has any code to share I would appreciate it.

I hate how now when I use Cmd-L or click on the location/search bar, it 'magnifies' or gets bigger. I find it gets in the way of the bookmarks bar. I don't need this, find it aesthetically unpleasant, and would love to be able to turn it off. I'm sure it was a 'feature' that was added in some recent update - why not make it configurable? Or maybe it is and I can't see how to adjust it?

I downloaded the recommended update by Firefox for our browser. Apparently, I inadvertently did not carry the passwords over in the application or something. I am so upset with myself because I no longer have any passwords. I chose Firefox many years ago for the convenience of having our many passwords securely and readily available. Now I have nothing! All our financial and medical accounts have passwords and I can no longer get them. PLEASE HELP

Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

I'd be grateful for help with this.

With the most recent update I can no longer enable the dropdown menu with my most visited websites. With previous versions setting browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus to false solved this problem. But it doesn't seem to be working now. Is there anything else I can try?

Hello,

It's been a while since the release date of chromecast on browsers.. Today, year 2020, all the chromium based browsers add chromecast (Edge, brave, chrome, etc..). My favorite browser is firefox, and i am forced to use a chromium based browser to cast to my androidTV's. Sometimes i think to leave this browser and use a chromium based all the time.

I searched and installed chromecast extension to firefox and nothing works to me, and they are not user frindly as chromecast extension on chrome.

Can you tell me if you even think in add a chromecast extension in firefox by default?

Thanks,

I was using the reader view to read a couple of online text books from OReilly.com. The URL on one of the books was long, and the reader view button wasn't showing. When I tried to toggle it with ⌥⌘R, that didn't work either. I couldn't find anything in the Firefox menu to activate the reader view. Any similar views?

I installed the Honey add-on. It's an app that will find coupon codes when you purchase online. I realized after a while that none of the codes it had were working, so basically, it's useless. I went to the add-on tab, clicked "remove" and thought that would be the last of it, however there was a small popup window for the app that wouldn't go away. Checking the help section of Firefox, I proceeded to manually uninstall the app by its code. Shut down Firefox, delete the code started up Firefox and now I have a blank pop-up window. The app is gone, I think, but I still have this popup that I can't close. If I right click on the Firefox logo in the dock, I see the open Firefox tab and a tab labeled about:blank Mozilla Firefox. I'm using a Mac with Catalina. Any suggestions?

Whenever I load a website, there is a brief left-to-right blue streak across the tab when that website loads. I would prefer to not have this, it's not matchy with anything else on my desktop and I find the animation distracting.

It doesn't seem to be connected to any of my add-ons. I'm using the Firefox Light theme. Is this just a theme thing, and I should get a different one? Or is there a way to get this to stop.I checked about:config and past forum discussions and didn't see anything obvious. Thank you!
