I'm out of tricks here. Last night I updated Windows on my desktop (Windows 10) and after several hiccups and restarts the computer is operating correctly...except for Firefox. The browser window opens normally but clicking on any bookmark or typing a web addy manually does nothing...it just stays blank. When using a bookmark, no address propagates to the address bar. In an effort to fix this I have done Firefox refresh (a few times now), run Firefox in troubleshoot mode (a few times and at least once this caused Firefox to crash), uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox (twice, second time WITHOUT saving prior account settings), restarted computer and uninstalled adblocker.

Absolutely NO change from any of this. My laptop (Apple with Firefox) works fine and the desktop WILL browse just fine on MS Edge, so this is not a connectivity problem. Any ideas on fixing this would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Google Maps doesn't work in FF 90.2 on MacOS (v. 10.15.7)

When I open Google Maps it doesn't show the normal icons for navigation on the map. It doesn't do anything when I have hardware acceleration enabled and I type something in the search bar. If I disable hardware acceleration it does a search, but in no way can I get it to show the place I want to see. It just shows the map of Rotterdam, where Google thinks I live based on my IP address.

It does work in Safari though, so it's a Firefox problem. I hope you can fix it. Google seems to give the FF team lots of problems.

Pocket install asks to confirm non-existant email address and no way to change

I upgraded to V90.0.2 and tried to install Pocket. The popup gave me an old email address that does not exist, so I changed it to my current email address, logged in, but then pocket said it needed to use my email address, but the old email address was in the box and there was no way to change my old email address.

I came here and logged in using my old email address, but I had updated the account so it had my new email address. I logged out and logged in with my new email address, and my settings were the same, with my new email address and my new alternate email address.

No where was my old email address listed for me to change or delete. I see no way to tell FF that email no longer exists. Confusing, I know.

Possible to change display name for Firefox? [Mac]

I am on MacOS Mojave (10.14.6). I have a few different installations of Firefox for different purposes and I'd like them each to display the custom name I've given them by renaming their filename (e.g. changing Firefox.app to something like YouTubeViewer.app). This causes the installation of Firefox to show in my app switcher and elsewhere in the OS as "YouTubeViewer", however when I run YouTubeViewer.app, Firefox still displays "Firefox" in the upper left-hand corner as the application name.

I tried editing the .plist file for each installation to change the value for key CFBundleName from "Firefox" to "YouTubeViewer", but that causes that installation of Firefox to no longer run. I believe this is due to the code-signing and pre-run validation done by the OS.

So, is there any way to get the custom name to display or is just not possible?

On Facebook.com I cannot send voice note style messages and get this error message

"You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone To make calls or send voice clips, go to your browser settings and allow Facebook access to your microphone."

On another website, when I try to record live video using my built in camera, the camera itself does not activate and only shows a black screen. The microphone DOES work on this site however.

Here is what I have done so far: I've reset the pram and smc on my macbook Granted permissions to these websites in firefox Granted permissions to my mic and camera to firefox in mac security settings Restarted firefox in safe mode, without add ons Cleared the cache, cookies, etc in firefox Reinstalled firefox and tried it all again

Nothing has worked so far and this is beyond frustrating. This problem cropped up at some point after updating from firefix 89 I believe. All help would be super appreciated, I rely on voice/video because typing is very difficult for me. thanks!

I've updated to the latest MacOS Monterey beta and all gesture plugins are broken when used with the trackpad. This is not unique to Firefox, it also happens in Chrome.

If you try to make a two fingers gesture (right click) on the trackpad, it will start scrolling the page instead of registering as a right click and hold for the gesture to start, making gestures impossible to perform.

Does anyone know about a work around for this?

A cert on an application we mange expired. OK. So I went to that site knowing I would have to tell FF to accept the cert even though it expired. However, I couldn't find anything under 'advanced' to accept the cert. This is with 90.0.2. Did something recently change where that's no longer allowed?

I had to resort to using a different browser so I can access the app to install a new cert.
