When going to a site with FF, 90 which has partial secure information FF still allows access even though the site is not completely https. this should not be allowed HTTPS only should work if the site is completely compliant with HTTPS.

The example site is https://www.brampton.ca//en/online-services/pages/bramcams.aspx

If you click on one of the camera images with "https mode in all windows only" set, no image is displayed and the icon suggest HTTPS but the site is only partial https.

With "https mode in all windows" no configured you get the secure lock icon with the exclamation. see enclosed.

Netflix and Prime Video do not allow video playing and give me errors associated with Widevine. Thing is, all the threads I have found about Widevine issues for Firefox on MacOS say that new widevine is not supported on or before MacOS 10.11.

I am using a MacbookPro 13" 2012 Running MacOS 10.15.17 (Catalina) Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit)

Installed Firefox 78.9.0esr as suggested roll back solution and it did not change anything. Reinstalled Firefox 90.0.2 and now Firefox Plugins section is is telling me that "Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. will be installed shortly." but it doesn't seem to change. I have always stayed updated on MacOS and Firefox versions, and suddenly in early 2021 this has become an issue that persists to date.

Is the current status of Widevine for Firefox on MacOS BROKEN?

There are no roll backs that seem to work, and I can't find anyone else with my MacOS and Firefox versions that are reporting the same problem. Streaming is not only the way of the future, it has been the standard for media viewing for over 5 YEARS. Firefox needs to figure how to make widevine work from the get go or it will quickly go the way of the dinosaur.

I don't WANT to use Chrome (thought I currently do for Netflix), please don't suggest that as a solution.

Using Firefox on a iMac, and the display randomly zooms in when the only input is moving the wireless mouse to the right slightly. I have found no way to return to the normal display without closing out of the Firefox browser, and re-opening. Zoom may be nice for somebody, but never when their is no apparent means to return to the normal display after it was inadvertently triggered for some unknown reason. This is annoying enough to consider utilizing a different browser......

J'ai deux problèmes avec mon Firefox sur Mac Big Sur. 1) La version anglaise m'est imposée. Lorsque je veux mettre le français en première ligne sur Préférences systèmes, la modification n'est pas enregistrée. 2) Il m'est demandé une Capture d'écran par un de mes correspondants. Impossible de trouver une ligne à cliquer dans le menu. Je signale que j'ai aussi Safari et que tout va bien sur ce moteur.

I'm on a brand-new macbook pro with M1 chip and have had trouble with firefox since day 1.

Many websites point-blank don't work. the crown currently is taken by patreon, which only shows me a white/blank screen after auto-loggin. I could access the site when I was not yet logged in, but every since I logged into my account: blank page. and it's not like I can log out on a blank screen. also, since patreon needs you to be logged into to access the content...

other annoying things: Netflix sends me an error message after loading, so I can't watch anything on firefox. It worked fine for like 1 day after I got the new macbook, then it stopped and I had to switch to safari to watch anything.

on Twitch, I can view, but the message input for the chat is just gone, the chat is there, I just don't have any way to type anything myself, though I am logged in and everything. again, switching to safari, it's back and I can interact in chat just fine.

I have firefox version 90.0.2 running. Mac OS Big Sur 11.4 is the operating system.

Hey All,

With the latest update of Firefox, some pages are loading but not showing contents after finishing the loading process. The result is an empty page showing the background color of the page itself.

Example page: https://safelaunch.io/safe-allocation

I am using the latest version of Firefox (90.0.1) on a Mac with macOS Big Sur 11.4.

I am facing the same issue with my iPhone!!

Using Chrome on my MacBook does not cause any issues (Safari has the same problem!).

Thanks for your support!

Cheers, Patrick

On my macbook [macOS Big Sur 11.4 ] in firefox [version 89.0.2 (64-bit)] all pages will zoom in or out whenever I hold down the shift key and swipe up or down on my trackpad. This is really annoying. How do I fix this?

( I really use the CTRL+SHIFT+TAB shortcut to navigate tabs and it becomes problematic very quickly)

I could find the solution for fixing it for [[CTRL+SCROLL (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194305) |CTRL+SCROLL (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194305) ]]but couldn't find for SHIFT+SCROLL.

Can't get Firefox to remember my pdf preferences (always asks "What should Firefox do?") [Big Sur]

Hi guys,

I've been trying for a couple weeks to make the switch from Chrome on Big Sur but am having trouble ironing a few things out. I work in research and view a ton of pdfs, so I like them to (1) open in browser, and (2) specifically, open in a new tab. I haven't been able to get Firefox to do these things.

For (1), I get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" every time I download a pdf from Researchgate (even the same exact pdf). I select the options in the image ("open with Firefox (default)" and "do this every time." But it shows me the popup every time. I've gone to Preferences->Applications->PDFs->Open in Firefox but the behavior persists.

For (2), I'm at a loss - when I open downloaded pdfs, they always open in a new window. I don't even know if it's possible to get them to open in a new tab, but it would be nice and save me a lot of time.

Thanks in advance if anyone can point me in the right direction!

Hi, I'm using the latest firefox version 89.0.2. There's a large tab bar at the top. I never use tabs. Safari doesn't show the tab bar unless multiple tabs are being used. This leaves more space to show webpages. I'd like to hide the tab bar permanently or when only one page/tab is used. I guess that means the red, yellow and green mac circles in the upper left would have to be moved to the lower bar, by shifting the back and forward arrows slightly to the right, as is done on Safari.

I looked online for suggestions. chrome.css files were mentioned. But they didn't explain what those were or how to create/access them. So the guidance was not helpful to those who didn't understand those files, like me.

Can you please let me know how to hide the tab bar?

Based on all the comments I saw on threads, it seems many others think the tab bar wastes space. It would be great if Firefox preferences provided an easy option for hiding the tab bar.

Thanks, Frank
