I've been using Firefox for iOS for several years and know how to use it at a basic level.

Just in the last couple of weeks, it doesn't want to open any buttons. That means if I want to write an email and add an attachment, or I want to post a listing on my Etsy shop and click on 'Add Photos', I click, and nothing happens. Just below this box, in fact, is 'Add images (optional):' and then a button that says 'Browse...'. Nothing happens when I click this button. There's no notification saying pop ups are blocked, just nothing happens.

So I find myself having to close down Firefox and go to Chrome or Safari, over and over again – it's so annoying, because all my passwords are saved on Firefox, so I'm just flicking between them all the time!

Any reasons you can think of? It seems to be up to date? Version is 119.0.1 (64-bit). Thanks!

Hi all, I have an Adobe account and regularly use Adobe e-sign to send out contracts. I have recently updated Firefox and since then, when I try and send out PDFs for e-sign via Adobe Acrobat Reader, it doesn't get past the upload of the document stage. When I do it on the web browser, I can log in to my account fine, but as soon as I try and view the PDF I want to send for signature, it tells me that:

'The cookie functionality is disabled on your browser

Adobe Acrobat Sign has detected that the cookie functionality is disabled on your browser. To use Adobe Acrobat Sign, please enable cookies on your browser.

When cookies are enabled, click the 'Continue' button below to proceed to Adobe Acrobat Sign. Instructions for enabling cookies Safari for iOS Safari for Mac Chrome for phone or tablet Chrome for desktop OS Firefox

   Click on the Firefox menu.
   Select Preferences.
   Select the Privacy & Security panel.
   Select Standard to enable cookies.
   Set Accept third-party cookies to Always to enable third-party cookies.'

I have followed all the above but it doesn't make any difference. I have also turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection for that site and it worked once, but then stopped working again.

I'm on a MacBook Pro.

Thanks so much for any help!

Firefox crashes when signing into Outlook webmail

Whenever I try to sign into Outlook Webmail (https://outlook.office.com/), Firefox crashes. I am on a MacOS Monteray (12.2.1). I have cleared all Firefox caches and cookies. I have completely uninstalled and re-installed Firefox. I have run it with my usual extensions, and completely clean, without any extensions and just the default settings.

The initial login page loads fine, and I type in the email address associated with the account. This takes me to the password page. If I type in an incorrect password, the site tells me so immediately. If I type the correct password, Firefox crashes--I get the spinning beachball cursor and (application not responding) in the dock. My only recourse is to force-quit Firefox.

Outlook webmail used to work fine in Firefox--I used it on this very machine nearly every day. The only change was that I recently had to update my email password. But again, I have had to do that every three months for years and have never had any problems.

Outlook webmail works just fine on this machine in Safari and Chrome. It's only Firefox that has any problems with it.

Any ideas about how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi! I have the Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I also use the Mozilla VPN. I’ve been trying to sign into my Firefox account for several weeks now and keep getting a ‘Cookies and local storage are required’ error message. The problem is that cookies are already enabled. I have tried restarting, updating the browser, doing it with the VPN on and off, listing firefox as an exception, and everything else I can think of. I’m currently entering this on my phone, because the browser also won’t let me sign into my account on my laptop without enabling cookies and local storage.

Any suggestions? I keep getting stuck in a loop.

Microsoft Excel is no longer listed i Applications as download option. All files downloaded automatically are stored as Microsoft Word files, not just excel files. I can change individual files manually to .xlsx which is a nuisance, but this also happens with Zip files (7Zip) and I am at a loss as to how to change them when they are downloaded as a Word document.

This does not happen on a newer MacBook Pro, but I need it to work with the older version. The older Mac is MacBook Pro 9.2 with MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.7 Firefox is version 103.0

When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark quickly flashes open and closed. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. If I am still on that tab and I try to use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up it also just flashes up and closes.

If I move away from that tab to another one, and then come back to it, the "Edit Bookmark is not even listed as an option."

Can you please assist.

Hello

Hoping someone can help me with this asap.

I was prompted to update firefox on my mac laptop.

So I did the update by clicking the button available at the top of the firefox browser, but now I can not open Firefox at all.

When I click on the firefox icon it does not open firefox and this message appears: You can't use this version of the application "Firefox with the version of OS X. You have OS X 10.11.6 . The application requires OS X 10.12 or later.

I understand what this means but not sure how to revert back to the previous version of firefox.

When installing the new update/version of firefox, i have deleted the old version of firefox.

I am following these instructions currently to try to resolve it: https://www.wikihow.com/Downgrade-Firefox

Following the instructions above I went to: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ , but can not find the previous version of firefox that I need.

The only info I have on firefox is version 102.2.0. I am after the version before this as assume that is the one compatable with my laptop currently (i can not update the OS ).

Can you help me download the previous version so it is compatable with my mac laptop?

Thanks for your help in advance

Three days ago Firefox froze and wouldn't allow me to do anything. I quit and then Firefox would not open. Went back to Safari and download the latest version of Firefox, and installed it. It started by saying that Firefox was already running (it wasn't) so I forced it to quit. Installed and asked it to replace the existing version. Then I tried to run it and it told me that it was already running!!!

Short of deleting the whole application and starting again - losing bookmarks, passwords, etc. - what else can I do?



/edit: moved thread from Firefox for iOS (for iPhone/iPad) to Firefox as this both sounds like desktop version and you put in "Mac Ventura v13" in system details on right so you have macOS.

Hi I'm on Ios I forgot a password so went to keychain access where I can normally find saved passwords. It wasn't there. I then went to Firefox preferences and found it there, for copying. There was no password required. That means if I leave my computer on and someone comes past, they can look at saved passwords, and that is a real security issue. I may stop using firefox because of this. Is there a setting to make it more secure? Cheers Martin

Hi, none of the virtual meeting applications (googlemeet, teams, etc.) are working on my firefox last version for OSX. The same in troubleshut mode. But it's fine on my Mac using Safari. I'm convinced that there is some configuration I touched in the last year as before I don't had this problem.

Can someone help me?

Thanks,
