My school library has a proxy server for connecting to subscriptions at various content providers. The site certificate is wildcarded, because the proxy server's name becomes the domain for the particular site to which the authenticated user is connecting. This has been the recommended way for libraries to connect institutionally with commercial content providers since at least 2000. The attachment shows the response that I get when I connect to my library with Firefox. You aren't allowed the opportunity to tell Firefox to accept the certificate as legit and connect anyway, which is extremely annoying.

Hi, I love the new, little weather app/temperature icon in the upper left of the Firefox home page. HOWEVER, I really want to change it to a city closer to me. I looked up how to do it, but the directions seem WRONG. I cannot hover and find any way to change locations. Is it because I'm on a Mac? or ?

Can you help me? I'm using an iMac computer... everything works, it's updated, what could be wrong?

thanks, Kathy P.

I used to be able to press Enter in the empty Firefox search bar to bring up the (DuckDuckGo) search page and enter my search from there. Don't ask me why I like doing that, but now after the latest Firefox update, 128.0, on my MacBook Air I can't do that anymore. I have to type in the search bar to bring up the search page.

I know it's a small thing but I wonder if it can be put back to the way it used to be.

How do I prevent Firefox/duckduckgo from instead of opening a newspaper site (eg: www.nytimes.com), INSTEAD opening the site with "feed" in front of it (eg: feed://www.nytimes.com)?

How do I prevent Firefox/duckduckgo from instead of opening a newspaper site (eg: www.nytimes.com), INSTEAD opening the site with "feed" in front of it (eg: feed://www.nytimes.com)?

The web browser does this all the time, and I almost never want the site with "feed:" in front of it.

Advice on how to change the settings to prevent this would be welcome. I suspect this happened with an update but ever since has been continuous.

Only happens on my laptop, not on my iPhone. I have an Apple M1 chip MacBookPro, running MacOS Sonoma 14.5. My Firefox browser is the latest version.

Hi team/community I'm a macOS Firefox user and i currently have a setup where pressing the CAPS KEY makes so shift - option - command and ctrl are pressed at the same time, this is useful for making keyboard shortcuts that do not interfere with any OS commands or app specific commands. However, it seems like Firefox is unable to accept this combination as a keyboard shortcut for any extension. You can see my issue in my attached picture, is there any way this can be fixed on my part?

Media playback choppy + browser laggy on a Macbook Pro with M3 chip

I installed Firefox on a Macbook Pro with Apple Silicon, M3. The installation was from the Firefox site, I downloaded the dmg and then dragged into Applications.

I find that playback of media stutters, and is choppy--not sure of a better way to explain it. E.g., YouTube videos and the Bandcamp player have "stuttered sound". Opening another site in another tab can make this effect worse. Likewise, trying to run Google Meet in a browser window causes basically everything on the computer to become very slow.

This still happens even if I go to "about:profiles" and then "restart with add-ons disabled".

But if I switch to another browser, Safari or Chrome, then I don't have the issue. e.g. I can play YouTube in the background fine even when running some compute intensive task.

I have also tried turning on/off "performance settings" and the "use hardware acceleration" checkbox underneath it -- neither of those seem to have any effect.

Activity Monitor showed that at most Firefox was using ~4 GB of memory of a total 48 GB, and the memory pressure indicator seems to be quite low.

I have run Firefox on other systems (e.g. System76, older Macbook Pro) with multiple windows open each having 20-30 tabs and never had an issue like this.

It really seems like it has something to do with how Firefox is interacting with the M3? Happy to learn I'm wrong. And happy to provide more details about the hardware or my settings if it would help.

I am on macos 14.5, and Firefox 128.0

I have enabled "Require device sign in to fill and manage passwords.". Which should ask for device authentication when I try to do anything with the saved passwords. And it does that when I go to "My passwords" and try to access them.

But, it doesn't ask for device authentication when I am using saved passwords on login forms. Is this intended? Anyone can go to the login form, fill the saved password without authentication and then see it.

I have attached an image and here is a screen recording of it of it - https://streamable.com/orf1gj

HI,

Half the time when I go to a website like Google Flights or something to do with Google it just automatically brings me to my employer's website like to sign in and use the Google tools there. I don't even work for them anymore and I don't know how to get rid of it automatically wanting me to go there. It won't even let me use Google Flights because it says it not supported by my employer. Thanks.

I have developed a web application (wordpress) that shows a number of thumbnail images, each connected to an mp4 video. There is custom javascript such that if a user selects a number of thumbnail images, creating a playlist, all of the associated videos will play back in the order selected. This works perfectly in the Chrome, Edge, Safari, and Opera browsers. However, in Firefox, rather than playing back the videos in sequence, after each video, a gray screen appears in the video player (JWPlayer) that says the file is corrupted. The mp4 files are not corrupt since they work well in the other browsers. Also, once that gray box appears, by clicking the "Play Video"button the next video in the sequence will play but this must be repeated after each video in the playlist. Is there a setting that can be adjusted so that sequence will play in FIrefox? Is there a default setting that prevents the sequential playback?

Any help would be appreciated

Sorry I really do not know anything about web development but would appreciate some help. For the past week or 2 metamask extension will not open properly. Upon clicking the icon it just perpetually loads. I have the same issue when using any kind of wallet connect to metamask, be it on uniswap or metamask website for example. I have cleared cookie cache. I have tried both disabling state partitioning using network.cookie.cookieBehavior. I have also tried setting this to 0 to allow cookies, these did not work. I have of course restarted my computer/browser. This is definitely an issue with my firefox because I am able to use the metamask extension in chrome. I have attached screenshots of the console & debugger from the metamask site in the hopes it has some info that anyone may be able to provide advice. In the debugger & in my searching I see an issue with "source maps", in my debugger it is saying "no source map found" - again I cannot apologise enough for my lack of understanding but if this is my issue would anyone be so kind as to explain a fix in laymans terms.
