Firefox blocks Mac keyboard text replacements. Textfast worked til a week ago, but now it does not. I type "qq1" into a document on the mac, hit enter, then a phrase is automatically typed or inserted. I type "qq3" another phrase is inserted. I have about 12 keyboard replacements. Be nice if Firefox would support this?

'I just downloaded Firefox in an attempt to break away from Google stranglehold (I also switched to Protonmail and DuckDuckGo). My issue is that I was unaware that there is an autozoom feature with FF. While for some people this is probably a godsend, for me it is slowly, but surely, driving me crazy.

I have searched for the answer online but have not found the solution ... please tell me that there is a way to shut this feature off

I can connect to my Router ( NetGear ) via Safar; however,' I can not go to http://routerlogin.net/ via the FoxFire browser'. I get redirected to https://www.netgear.com/home/services/routerlogincom/ .

Via the Settings interface, I have allowed this site to accept cookies for the session. Still no luck.

I have look at articles that attempt to address this issue - they must be old, for the solution menu options can not be found in my version of FF 97.0.1

It has to be a settings issue for again - I can do what I want via Safari when allowing cookies.

Browser Settings are strict with "do not Tack me". HTTPs only is set. Usually when this fails, I elect to goto the URL as HTTP.

Can you help ?

Thanks.

I cannot log into aa.com (American Airlines) with Firefox but Chrome works fine. Error message that their site is down for maintenance but it is up and working just fine with other browsers.

I have cleared cache, cookies, history, etc. HTTPS always is not enabled. Firefox is at the latest version. I have restarted the browser.

Any thoughts?

I have tried many times and many ways to delete cookies but the little blighters won't delete. I have used the option "manage data" and cleared each one individually, I have tried "remove all' and I have tried clearing all history. I have tried each option many times and have shut down firefox and my mac repeatedly but the cookies won't go. I know it has done something because it logged me out of all my accounts and all the form data and browsing history [which I would rather have kept] is gone....but those rotten cookies are still alive! This must be a bug. I am using Mac Big Sur. Any help would be very much appreciated please! Thanks muchly.

Since I moved my profile to a new computer I have had two recurring issues that appear to be related.

Issue 1: I use the Tree Style Tabs extension. After about 30 minutes the sidebar hides itself and the Tree Style Tabs item disappears from the View > Sidebar menu. I have to restart Firefox to re-enable the Tree Style Tabs via the menu.

Issue 2: I have 'Open previous session and tabs' enabled in Preferences, and usually this feature works well. However, once the previous issue occurs (my Tree Style Tabs disappears) and I restart Firefox, it always reverts to the same tabs that I had open on the date of migration several weeks ago.

I am on MacOs 12.0.1 and FireFox and extensions are all up-to-date

Can anyone offer any suggestions as to why these might be occurring?
