Suddenly pages aren't loading correctly. I can't see all the necessary buttons and information to use pages.

Also, keep getting javascript errors, but javascript is enabled.

Yes, have quit and restarted, cleared cookies cache etc, started in safe mode, disabled extensions, updated, downloaded new firefox and replaced old... No idea what happened in the past day or two.

Any ideas? Thanks

-- Okay, seems noscript is part, or all of the problem, so have disabled that. Will see if continues.

Long time User of Firefox. Everyone day, one of the first sites I read is WSJ.com. Recently (now running 89.0 Firefox) the WSJ.com website has been totally jumbled. I cross checked it on Chrome, where it was working fine. I have reported this to WSJ.com, and now also to Firefox. Is there a new setting requirement in Firefox 89.0 for that page? This is the only regular site I visit where this is occurring.

Any insights?

Help! Today, I updated from v. 88.x to the latest v. 89.x of Firefox for Mac OS. Unfortunately, the new look and interface of v. 89 is very difficult for me to see and use. The menu bar items (text and icons) are too small, and everything is too small, too light and low-contrast gray with no borders ,etc. I've been using Firefox for Mac OS for at least 15 years, and I've never been so dissatisfied by the look of an upgrade. I am running on a Mac Pro with OS X 10.14.6.

Having played with the various preference menus in v. 89.x that I could find, I am not able to find settings to return the look to that of the previous version. Is there a "theme" to make the interface user-friendly again, or do I need to actually revert to v. 88.x? If I need to go back to v. 88.x, how do I do that and preserve all of my original settings, bookmark, etc.? Thank you!

Suddenly videos won't play on one particular news website (others are fine), I've tried every possible solution I could find on the net (clear cache, uncheck hardware accelleration, allow audio & video, fiddled with permissions and protection,...). MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, Mid 2014), recently updated to Big Sur 11.4 (hoping the problem would go away, issue already there with Catalina), 2,6 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5, video Intel Iris 1536 MB. Please, can anyone help?

Ever since I began using a Mac desktop computer (in 2018), every time it was shut down or restarted, all of my Firefox settings, add-ons, bookmarks, logins, cookies, and history disappeared. Everything is returned to the defaults as if I never had Firefox on my computer before. I never had this problem with any Windows computer, so I thought this problem must be compatibility with Apple not being good. But it works fine as long as I don't close my browser completely. What is going on? Is this fixable?

My operating system is still Mojave, but Firefox is up to date. I only have a desktop computer and like it that way.

Hi,

since the latest version of Firefox I have a problem that tabs are not going to be restored when closing just the window. On Mac closing the window means pressing the red bulb in the top left corner, which actually keeps Firefox running in the background. I know that it was different in previous versions. There the last open tabs were reopened when creating a new first window. Now sessions are only restored when Firefox is shutdown explicitly (CMD+Q) and then restarted. Option for session restore is set. I tried to fix that by using the addon Tab Session Manager, however, this is not the behavior I'm used to. I also deleted my old profile (all my urls, etc. are gone now ... :( ), no effect.

Anyone know if something has changed for sessions? Or is it just me having such a problem?

Regards, Thomas

For starters, I want to type my search in the larger, lower search bar, but more often than not, what I'm typing shows up in the smaller search bar that is higher up on the page and not on the bar where I'm typing. That is annoying.

But even more annoying: whenever I start to type what I want to look for, a drop-down menu appears with lots of suggestions for me, and those suggestions hide the lower search bar. As soon as I type one letter, the drop-down menu appears with lots of guesses about what I want. I don't want suggestions cluttering up my page ~~ I just want to type without all of that clutter. I'd leave an added image, but it won't let me take a screen shot of what I'm talking about.

Is there any way for me to disable the drop-down menu with suggestions? I HATE IT! Just let me type what I want to find!

I am constantly reloading tabs because I need to use the TotalSuspender addon to control 40+ concurrent tabs across 8 browser windows. With this new update, the Reload Tab option in the tab context menu has changed to New Tab (which is useless to me as I need to use the + menu to access containers). How can I edit this context menu and simply remove the New Tab option?

NY Times now won't load images (there's now a hold-to-see button; image & headlines vanish when you let go) on either side of the firewall & YouTube blacks out their link icons & the right column recommended / loaded-for-sequence play videos on the right column whether you're signed-in or not. Background images are now blacked out on some sites. None of this ever happened to me until I upgraded to FF 89.

Why is this? How do I stop it?

The array of Mac settings, FF settings, site settings is dizzying as we all know, which makes sorting out where the problem might lie a bear w/o help. Things worked great through 88. I allowed FF entree to simply install each new version. No prob. Now this. 89 is clearly a complete overhaul -- I've seen scores of comments from folks left aghast at these changes with no clear, comprehensive tutorial of 1) what exactly FF did & changed, 2) why FF did it & most importantly, 3) how to return which sections / settings to what you wanted & felt comfy with & which you're just stuck getting used to. Configuration ability is a huge aspect of computer living. That FF info alone would have lessened the heat I'm afraid you've been taking.

Anyway, back to mine... any clue as to how to reset whatever it is that needs resetting to drop this blockage? Many thanks for the assist!

When I try to change my password, it makes me log in, which I do using my old password. Then it makes me authenticate it with a code it sends to my email, which I do. Then I get to the change password screen, enter my old password, my new password, and my new password again to confirm. But it won't let me save it because it says "incorrect password." I know it's not the incorrect password, because I just used it to log in.

Because of this terrible 89.0 update I've had to start using Chrome, and I hate Chrome. I cannot get any videos to play in Mozilla anymore. Youtube doesn't work, Tumblr videos don't work, Twitch videos don't work, even the Tenor gifs on Discord won't show.

Yes, I have cleared my entire history of cache and cookies for all of these websites, and it does not fix the problem.

Nothing will play. I hate this. Please, Mozilla, fix this so I can go back to using the browser I actually prefer.

If anyone else is experiencing this, or has found a solution, please let me know.

Firefox's onboard spellchecker needs to go back to college, or probably high school! Every day I have several words with the dotted underline, telling me they're not words, or not spelled correctly. However, when checking the dictionary, I confirm that the spell-check feature is wrong, and I am correct! I don't want to disable it completely, as it does let me know when I've made a typo, which I can quickly correct, but it's a pain in the butt to keep having it say something's wrong with a word, and there's not... I honestly can't believe it can be that hard to use a source that's accurate, when it's something on everyone's screen that uses Firefox...

Hi since I updated Firefox last night, I can't seem to use the search bar anymore, I'm talking about the usual one, the search bar in the middle of the page under the Firefox globe. As soon as I type the first letter in this search bar, it writes into the adress bar, and nothing is displayed in the search bar at all, it stays empty. It's like the only option I have now is the adress bar, the search bar is useless and though it's ok for an adress it is not for a proper research. I wonder how to sort this out. Thanks for your help !

I've lost all my history prior to the current date. I think yesterday too, I only had the days history and nothing else. This may have started with the new firefox update, but I'm not sure, I wasn't paying attention. It's not in my settings to delete history every time I close firefox. All my bookmarks are still there, its just a problem with my browsing history. It seems like the "recently closed tabs" keeps better track of the days history than my actual history tab. I'll probably lose todays history tomorrow. Not sure why this is happening~~ help

Hello, it has been some time now. I'm using Firefox 89 on iMac. Some sites' pages become grey and you don't know what that is until you use another browser and find that it's the accept all cookies question on every site you go. Problem is that sometimes you don't see that button and the page becomes grey, it's somewhere maybe but you can't see it and can't click it. How is that possible? That happens evens if I change the settings in cookies management in security and privacy.
