My speed dial disappeared today. I have business logins saved by speed dial so I am a bit desperate. I have restarted both firefox and the computer. I think I was not home when speed dial disappeared. I dont understand computers very well, I have mac OS 11.2.3. I don't know whether firefox was updated without my knowledge today. I have time machine and regular backups.

The Home page icon only appears in the tool bar of the page I've designated as the Home Page. As soon as I click a link on that page, the icon disappears. The only way I can get the home page back is the create a new tab/window. Earlier versions of Firefox on other machines in the house don't have this problem. Not acceptable.

Starting this AM, Instagram won't load (MacOS 11.6; Firefox 94.0.1) -I just get a greyed out IG icon. The problem does not happen either on Firefox Mobile or on Safari, or on any other website I've tried on the Mac.. The very first time I tried this morning I got an error message about some technical problem with connecting, but now don't even get that. I have closed and restarted Firefox and rebooted the Mac. (Also turned off any adBlockers -- although when Firefox *thinks* it's finished loading IG there are no ad servers or trackers shown.)

Copy text from address bar (not the URL of the current page)

Looks like this question was asked twice before with no response:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1354750

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1331182

I frequently paste text into the address bar to copy it and paste somewhere else. This is very useful for a variety of reasons (e.g. speed, strips text of formatting) but for some reason a recent Firefox update makes it so if you paste text into the address bar and then copy it, you will actually have copied the current page's URL - not the intended copy.

How do we reverse this unexpected and undesirable behavior?

I'm using Firefox 94.0.1 on MacOS 12.0.1. When I visit www.tangerine.ca I see a screen that looks similar to a mobile device layout (attached). Not exactly the same, but containing elements such as the hamburger menu and others that don't normally appear on this page.

When I visit the same site on the same computer using the same browser in private viewing mode it displays correctly. It also displays correctly on other computers and using other browsers. The problem is isolated to Firefox in normal mode on one specific computer.

I've deleted all cookies and cleared the cache entries for the site but the problem persists.

Note that "Responsive Design Mode" is off.

Any ideas what is being cached/used to cause this? There must be one more piece of information that I need to find and remove.

Hello, I have a long lasting issue of logging in to my Sony PSN account on Firefox on iOS. When I try to log in, following message (in Czech) shows: Připojení k serveru se nepodařilo navázat (18.758f1402.1637667594.2a7e98ef). It translates something like "Connection to the server was not possible to achieve." The issue is confirmed on Mozilla as on Chrome on the same Mac I do not have this problem. Also I can log throu android app, or Mozilla on android. So Mozilla for iOS is the only one causing the issue. Thank ou for looking into it. If necessary I am available for further questioning or help with investigation. Michal

duplicate of /questions/1359208 and also moved from Firefox for iOS to Firefox section as you are using Firefox on a Mac.


I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?

I have been using Firefox as my main browser for a while and I like it.

I have noticed that some interactive parts on some websites are missing when using Firefox. On the other hand, when using Google Chrome everything works fine.

I am attaching 2 screenshots showing that the button "Start the Chat" is missing when using the Firefox browser compared to when using Google Chrome.

Why is that?

I am unable to get the 'recommended by Pocket' panel to appear in new tabs with my normal user Firefox profile (Firefox account sign-in) on Mac Catalina. When I go to about:preferences#home the option simply is not present.

I created a new user login on my mac to access banking and other financials. This uses a separate Firefox profile (including new Firefox account sign-in and email), and the 'recomended by Pocket' panel is present.

The panel is present on new tabs opened for my normal Firefox account sign-in on my iOS (iPhone) Firefox install.

The about:config settings searching for 'pocket' appear to be the defaults, and match the settings in the financials account.

I have tried in 'safe mode' (add-ons disabled) and have done a Firefox 'refresh', however my add-ons (and presumably everything else) were restored when I signed back into my normal Firefox user account.

Hovering over the Pocket icon in the address bar displays 'save to Pocket', implying to me that it has signed me into Pocket. I've signed in at getpocket.com. New Firefox profiles without signing in do not show 'recommended by Pocket' in either new tabs or the about:preferences#home configuration page, but I expect the functionality requires being signed in to a Firefox account.

Help or suggestions much appreciated.

Hi all,

I am trying to customize my Firefox on Mac because the tabs on top interfere with the menu bar, thus I only want tree-style tab extension to work on the side, with the tabs on top disabled.

I followed this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184674#answer-1028260 as well as this clear guide on how to create userChrome.css: https://www.userchrome.org/how-create-userchrome-css.html When I tried to restart the browser, I seemed to have been logged out of my profile, with all customization gone and a standard white (instead of black) menu. I deleted the chrome folder and it is normal again now.

I suspect the userChrome.css file should contain more than just the one line I tried to add: #tabbrowser-tabs { visibility: collapse !important; } ; Is there any location where I can copy my current intra-browser customization into the userChrome.css file?

I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Letters (most noticeably x, y, and z) appear to be missing from text in web pages. Running macOS 10.14.6 with Firefox Browser 80.0. Note the image from the drop down menu on this support page. Missing y's, z's, and x is replaced by quotation marks (ie Firefo" Snc).

I have seen this sporadically on a couple of macs that I own. Text seems okay in Safari.

Thank you for your help!
