I gotta say that i feel SO stupid asking this, but trust me...LESSON WELL LEARNED!!! if you can help me that would be AWESOMELY MASSIVELY GOOD!!!! THANK YOU for your time Malcolm Wright

Hi - I unfortunately had to use Hubstaff tracking software to complete a job. It required me to give it Firefox permissions. I do not recall everything. I do remember that it required Document privelages. It seems a rather intrusive software. I have tried looking through settings to disable permissions and could not find it specifically. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

On occasion, eBay styling breaks, leaving me with plain unstyled HTML. Photo below for example.

This doesn't happen everytime, and it happens randomly. But once it has happened once there's no good way of fixing it, and I often have to swap browser.

There have been a number of questions about this on support.mozilla, but all are archived. One of the suggested solutions is to disable tracking protection for the site, on the premise that eBay's tracking files are mixed in with their styling files, but disabling tracking protection does not fix the problem.

I'm using FF 128.0 on macOS Sonoma 14.5.

For me, the solution was to disable the disconnect.me browser extension.

I have one Windows and one MacBook machine and Firefox on both. Both are signed in to my Mozilla account. On the Windows machine I have 5+ containers, these containers never sync to my MacBook Firefox. I have signed out of all machines, including an iPad and iPhone. Nothing has worked over multiple months. Note that at some time in the past the containers did sync.

The MacBook is on Sonoma 14.5, and FireFox 128.0. The Windows is Windows 10 Pro and FireFox 128.0.

Please help.

Hello. I was browsing for something on Amazon and I noticed this annoying icon in my search bar as well as a popup asking me to enable some new feature called "Review Checker". I have clicked close, and it appeared again. Then I clicked Not Now. Still I wasn't sure it's completely disabled because the icon in the search bar wasn't gone. I've done extensive search on how to properly disable this feature but I couldn't find a working solution.

For example, there are some config flags suggested here, https://connect.mozilla.org/t5/discussions/disable-review-checker/td-p/47370 and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1443734

Accordingly, I've set browser.shopping.experience2023, browser.shopping.experience2023.ads.enabled, and browser.shopping.experience2023.enabled to FALSE. I restarted Firefox. However, once I got to the product page on Amazon, I still see the Review Checker button in my search bar. This feels like a bug. Should I submit a bug ticket or is there a way to make it disappear for good?

Until recently I used to be able to clear my searches ( with clock icon) in the address bar, by doing the following:

 "Type or paste enough text for Firefox to show the item in the drop-down.
   Press the ↓ down arrow key to highlight the item.
   Hold down the Shift key and press Delete on your keyboard."

This no longer works, can anyone please tell me why it no longer works, and what is the alternative.

Many Thanks Galinda

In this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly

Several commands do not have corresponding keybindings. In particular, the ones I'm interested in are "Go one word to the left/right" as shown in the attached image.

Is there a reason why these are left out? Firefox is the only program on MacOS, that I have encountered, where it is impossible to have the caret skip words forward/backwards.

I can use Karabiner-Elements to fix whatever weirdness might exist, but not if Firefox has no way to actually trigger that command, nor a way to rebind keys in order to do so either.

Maybe I've missed something obvious.

PS: Writing this was annoying, exactly for the reason explained. The weird thing is that CTRL+backspace is the only "make key X operate on a whole word instead of a single character" that actually works. For example, "backspace" removes a single character in text edit fields. "ctrl+backspace" would remove the whole word.

PPS: I don't care too much if the modifier key is CTRL or CMD. I can rebind that. I just need it to either be *something*, or that one can set it to *something.
