I'm not sure if this is related to the most recent Firefox version or the most recent MacOS version.

Suddenly I get the "Firefox (not responding)" status when trying to download files when:

  1. the "Always ask you where to save files" checkbox is checked OR
  2. when trying to change the default folder where files should be saved to.

Dowloading to the default downloads folder is in order and files download just fine.

Update: I just tried to upload a profile pic to my Firefox account and the same thing happened - it looks like a permissions issue, probably related to latest MacOS?

Yesterday, whenever I looked at Instagram on my iPhone 8 (software is up-to-date/ current), a Mozilla icon would appear with a tiny iPhone icon that said, "notification from iPhone." When I clicked on it, it would either take me to the Instagram login page of a particular Instagram account I follow, or else take me to my own Instagram profile page. I did not sign into Instagram in the open tab upon receiving these notification. I'm including some screenshots so you can see how it appeared on my screen. The other Instagram accounts besides my own that would appear in my Firefox browser tab were both people in the UK, for what it's worth, contacts of mine on Whatsapp also.

I just found it kind of creepy and thought I should report it to Mozilla.

Thanks, JJ

I'm working on an iMac, Monterey 12.6 and using Firefox 105.0.1. In Settings, I can only choose to have downloaded files be saved in the Downloads folder. If I were to check the box "Always ask you where to save files", it won't fully download or will be sent elsewhere on the Mac hard drive. I tried reading other articles that dealt with changing True/False settings in Firefox, but I really have no idea how to do that and if it made it worse. How can I fix this properly so that when I choose to download a file, I can also choose to save it in a specific folder? I'm also not sure if the Applications choices (how Firefox handles various files) is incomplete or not working.

After the introduction of Safari years ago, I have finally recently switched to Firefox. I like it, but the font thing is about to send me packing. I just cannot get a decent automatic display of all websites. I never had an issue with Safari. Example: Gmail's body section is way too small, no matter how much I try to enlarge it, it just doesn't want to enlarge. I mean, this is really a hassle. Is there a simple setting in Firefox that can duplicate Safari's handling of text/fonts? I really would like to use it as my default browser, but it's really getting annoying.

Whenever I try to type in numbers on a web page, Firefox either closes the page or it opens the address bar on the browser. Sometimes it puts up a dialog box asking if I want to leave the page. It's very frustrating because Firefox is making it difficult to add a new credit card to my accounts. This started in the last few weeks, and I'm not aware of any new updates. I tried to refresh Firefox but this problem is continuing. I have a refurbished by Apple 2020 MacBook Pro running Monterey 12.4. I believe in Mozilla and would hate to go to Chrome as my main browser. Can you help me? [email removed from public]

Hola, El "nss internal pkcs #11 module" que está instalado no me deja cargar el certificado del DNIe. He intentado descargarlo pero me dice que "no es posible desargar el módulo". Lo que necesito saber es cómo pueso "descargar" o desinstalar el "nss internal pkcs #11 module"

(He instalado un nuevo módulo que sí que me deja cargar el certificado. El problema es que cuando me conecto a alguna de las páginas oficiales en las que necesito identificarme con el DNIe me da error y creo que es porque el nss internal interfiere de algún modo.)

Os agradezco de antemano vuestra ayuda.

I previously had a MetaMask extension on FireFox and it would open as usual. Several days ago, I opened Firefox and the MetaMask icon in the upper bar wasn't there. I tried to download it on the browser several times and eventually got the download and entered the seed phrase and, with some outside help, established the extension again and recovered my tokens. So all was good. But today I opened my FireFox and the MetaMask was missing again. Can you please help me find out why it is missing and how to keep that from happening again. Thank you

What is Wrong with Firefox fonts.

Attached is the same web page on Safari and Firefox. This is on a Mac running OS 10.15.7.

This problem has gradually been getting worse over the last month or so. I don't want to run safari... I don't like safari...! Please help, I am not software literate and so incapable of delving into all the hidden layers of code.

Until a few days ago, the site dailykos.com worked relatively normally. (By normally, I mean that the body of each article, including links and some of the embedded videos/photos were there and could be read. The comments and some of the pictures have never loaded. I thought it might be due to my privacy settings or extensions, but those weren't that important to me, and I never tried to fix that.) Now the site's pages are blank except for the title (see screenshot). The site loads normally in Safari on my iMac, and in the latest version of Firefox on my wife's MacBook Pro. I've compared the settings between her copy of Firefox and mine, and I can't see any significant differences. (We are both still using MacOS Catalina, but plan to upgrade to Monterey very soon.)

Things I've tried that didn't work include restarting both Firefox and my Mac, clearing my cache (it was zero bytes, but I clicked "Clear" anyway), deleting all cookies, including any for Daily Kos, except for a few cookies I need to keep, disabling all my extensions (see photo) and turning off enhanced tracking protection for the site. After these actions, I restarted Firefox, but the DK pages are still empty. An Internet search found only a few articles about similar but not identical problems from several years ago to January 2022. A search of the Mozilla returned zero results.

I should mention that I -think- this started after one of the last two Firefox updates. I'm using version 105.0. I'm fresh out of ideas, and I'd appreciate any help the community or developers can give me. Thank you very much. - Don

I installed Evernote Webclipper on Firefox on my Macbook Air, but the icon/tool does not display so is not usable. I used the "customize toolbar" info to drag the extension icon to the toolbar. Clicking on that put me back on the add-ons page, did not open the extension. I restarted, restored defaults, removed and re-installed Evernote still no go. VERY frustrated. Any ideas from anyone welcome. Thanks.
