Forms (such as a newsletter sign up or unsubscribe) do not show up in Firefox on my Mac.

These forms show up normally in Safari on Mac. They also show up normally in Edge AND Firefox on PC and all other browsers that I know of.

I of course use Firefox on my Mac and would like these forms to show up properly on that browser.

Thanks, Amy

Hi All,

Not sure when this changed but noticed that a recent update changed how the JSON Response Payload is shown.

The old way can be seen in this Firefox Documentation https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Tools/Network_Monitor/request_details#Response

See attached Image "old.png"

Now see the attached "new.png". As you can see, the Object is summarized and shown on the same line as the Object's parent. This looks very messy when viewing large and/or complicated JSON.

Can someone please help me out to get the old view back?

Sorry if this is already answered. I already did try searching the Net and Firefox forums.

Thanks, Dil

I have set various custom shortcuts for all apps on my mac in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts. These are:

  • Ctrl + Opt + Left Arrow - Move Window to Left Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Right Arrow - Move Window to Right Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Up Arrow - Zoom
  • Ctrl + Opt + Down - Move to Built-in Retina Display

These shortcuts work for all other applications on my mac (Catalina 10.15.4), but not with Firefox (version 76.0.1). On the Maximise window where these options reside via mouse, the shortcuts do show up, and pressing the options with a mouse does work, but the shortcuts do not.

I use 2 pair of earbuds with my PC. When one pair has to charge, I shut it off or just plug it in (same as shutting it off) and connect the 2nd pair.

When the 1st pair is shut off, Firefox drops out of the Volume Mixer. When the 2nd pair connects, Firefox does not reload in the Volume Mixer. No sound on any webpage. Reloading a tab doesn't help. I always have multiple tabs open so having to restart Firefox every time it drops out of the Volume Mixer is beyond annoying. Isn't there an easier way? (don't have this problem with other browsers)

I'm using firefox developer edition. The latest version: 76.0b2 I have firefox.cfg set up to overwrite new tab content with locally stored html. The code in firefox.cfg that worked until recent update:

/* set new tab page */ try {

 var newTabURL = "file:///G:/Documents/Newtab.html";
 aboutNewTabService = Cc["@mozilla.org/browser/aboutnewtab-service;1"].getService(Ci.nsIAboutNewTabService);
 aboutNewTabService.newTabURL = newTabURL;

} catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

In the browser console there is an error message displayed:

[Exception... "Cannot modify properties of a WrappedNative" nsresult: "0x80570034 (NS_ERROR_XPC_CANT_MODIFY_PROP_ON_WN)" location: "JS frame :: firefox.cfg :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 7" data: no]

Any idea what that error message means and how to resolve it? Does anything changed regarding new tab overwrite?

I am living in Spain, and browse in English. Often when I do a search with Google, although the result is linking to a page in English, the final page is in the one for the Spanish market (es_Es).

A good example is the Seagate website. Even direct links from other forums are redirected to their Spanish version. Also, after cleaning cache for Seagate sites, restarting, AND trying it in a Private Window.

My config: macOs 10.15.4 set to UK English. Firefox Dev Edition 76.0b3, (language same as OS) with: - Privacy & Security: Enhanced Tracking Protection > Standard - Privacy & Security: Locations > "Block new requests asking to access your location" checked - about:config > geo.enabled set to false. Google Search Region Settings are set to "United States". –

Thank you!

I have some sites that I visit specific pages on. For example, https://www.futilitycloset.com/category/technology/. When I start typing "fu", Firefox suggests first the base domain, futilitycloset.com, even though I never go to the main page. I've tried using shift+delete when the base domain is selected, but it's still there the next time I type "fu". Is this possible?

My website bucksccc.org.uk, was recently moved to a new host, DNS changed and SSL certificates renewed. The new site works wonderfully on everyones Macs, PCs, Tablets, phones etc all over the globe. But not my Mac. When I type in the URL ALL browsers say the site is insecure and they will not open it. When I look at the SSL certificate that is being rejected, it is the old one from the old host. On my mac I also have Windows 10. The site opens fine on there and the certificate is correct. It is something on my Mac that is obviously causing this. I have refreshed Firefox, rebooted, cleaned cache, flushed DNS cache, etc, etc, but still have not found a fix.

Hi everybody, I have been using for years Mozilla and the tabs as a useful productive tool to keep the pages/docs which I was working on, always open and ready to be opened. Every time I closed it, it restored the pages/tabs. Today I opened a second Mozilla session just for 1 page, and I accidentally closed the main one, lately I closed the second one. When I re-opened Mozilla, it restored the one-page second session, and completely lost the tens of tabs and the history I had on the main session.

How can I recover that pages/tabs? Thank you very much

I Cannot reset a (supposed my) PIN that able me to view a password saved. Firefox asks me for a PIN which I do not know, when I want to reset the PIN it points me to "Settings > Accounts > Sign-in options", but neither in Firefox Options (that I have to assume is referring to with "Settings") nor Firefox Sync account settings there exists such a "Sign-in options". These are the steps I followed to locate "Settings" and "Accounts" and "Sign-in options"

1. I went to Firefox Options and searched for "Accounts" 1. I went to Firefox Sync Settings > Manage Accounts 1. Also I attempted to try with another account but I do not have / I do not remember the password if any, it is not the same of my main account password because it does not work.

But I could not get the given "Sign-in options". How can I reset the PIN or just delete it because I do not remember when I had to create it neither what it is?

I know the email and password of my account, Firefox could send me a PIN reset request to my email, the one I am registered to Ffx Sync.

Thanks in advance. Regards, Jorge

Version: Developer edition 76.0b4 (64-bit) Problems started recently, when FF is started it hangs. It shows 4 process in the Task manager. I have to sort it in the memory utilization way, such that top is the highest memory consumer. Then I kill the last 3 to get it working back. Also the 4 processes of FF do not indicate "not responding" which is strange.

The killing of last 3 ff process and keeping 1 seems to fix the issue but it has to be done manually every time. Not sure what is making the FF hung in first place.
