Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2

Thanks to anyone who can help me solve this sudden mystery. Long time user of firefox on macbook pro and mac towers.

Hi, I'm having login issues on a website. I use Firefox for my browser. I have a couple of add-ons and VPN. I have disabled them but it still does not work. I have tried Safari with no VPN and no joy there either. I have cleared all cookies, cache history, put tracking protection at standard and cleared cookies from the Profile Folder (read the article on Mozilla about this issue). I have taken Firewall off Mac and tried it withiut VPN. Still nothing. I have checked my ipad without vpn. I can login on that on Firefox (without vpn) but I want to use my macbook if possible.

It's strange because I managed to log in on the website first time no problem and then I logged out and back in again and it wouldn't accept the password change. it's for a course and the people organising it have reset the initial password again but I still can't log in (they can do it with my username as they have sent me a video showing me they can and saying that it must be my end).

I have previously had a login problem with another website with a 403 error but that works without vpn. This doesn't.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just open the email and read an article. It is absolutely disgusting.

So I'm posting this here in the hopes that others will join in.

My opinion is simple. Firefox… be a browser. Improve the browser, advance the browser, focus on new and improved features. And please stop the SJW nonsense.

Remember that "woke is broke". You're not doing so great financially. And yet you keep trying to run around playing social justice warrior. Please do better. Just stop.

One time, along time ago, I started spouting off about what I thought about social issues and politics etc. I basically got slapped upside the head and people said "we really don't care what you think. All we care about is what we're here to hear from you about. Nothing more. So stop putting out all these messages." It was a hard lesson for me to learn, but I got it.

I don't care what Mozilla or Firefox thinks about anything political or SJW nonsense. I don't care. I don't want to hear it. I sure don't want to believe that the browser of my choice is involved in all kinds of things that I don't believe in and don't want anything to do with. And worse, that you keep flapping on about it.

What I really want to know, what I really really want to know is... "What have you done for me lately." To quote Janet Jackson. What are you doing that will make my life better with this app? How will this app serve me more effectively? Not what social justice nonsense are you going to push today? I don't care what you believe not one little bit. I care how well my browser works. That's it. Nothing more.

Please stick to business. And don't try to invent that your business is social justice nonsense. It's not. That doesn't pay your bills. That just ostracizes people, alienates people and makes them wish they were to filiated with you.

Think smarter. Do better. Focus on the app. Keep your priorities straight. You are not an employment center for SJW's. You are supposed to be producing a product.

I hope someone with intelligence reads this.

I updated my iOS to Big Sur, and now many emails on Yahoo are displaying content as gobbledygook. Sometimes it's the subject lines, signatures, and email addresses in emails and the threads of forwarded emails. Other times it's the text on home listings or job ads. This isn't happening on my gmail account, or when I access Yahoo through Safari, nor is it happening on my mobile devices. It's specific to the combination of Yahoo/Firefox/Big Sur. Any idea how to fix or when Mozilla might address this bug in an update?

Many thanks, Erika

I recently migrated from Chrome to Firefox as my preferred browser and have generally been very satisfied. There is one issue, however, that is driving me crazy and has forced me away from the Firefox browser multiple times to find a solution. It is this: When I occasionally perform searches on webpages that use dropdown menus, only the first 20 (or so) items in the list can be accessed. I can scroll, but the scrolling stops before reaching the bottom of the list. I've accessed these lists in other browsers and I know they are longer, but I cannot for the life of me figure out what is limiting these in Firefox. I am using an iMac Pro running the Catalina OS and Firefox version 86. Any help at all would be very appreciated! I've attached three images from the same webpage and dropdown menu. Two are using Firefox (the second is after I've scrolled down), and the third is using Safari (which shows the complete list). I literally cannot scroll past the bottom of Image #2, even though in Image #3, you can see that there are 10 additional lines of options in the textbox.

Thanks, Jim Margetts

I have a Macbook laptop and I'm using a secondary screen. I use Firefox on my secondary screen, and anytime I hover over a bookmark or a button that has a tooltip, the tooltip shows on my primary monitor, instead of showing on the secondary monitor. Steps to reproduce: 1. Setup a Mac with a secondary monitor 2. Launch Firefox on the second monitor 3. Enable the Bookmark Bar and make sure you have some bookmark set in a folder structure 4. Open one of the folder so it drops down 5. Hover over one of the items in the folder SEE: The tooltip appears on the primary monitor floating over empty space, instead of hovering over the proper menu entry in the secondary monitor

I have attached a screen capture (obscuring some personal items).

Note: Some tooltips show in the right place, but all bookmark tooltips,

Hi, I just switched from Chrome to Firefox. Everything is fine except this feature.

On Mac, you can set a text replacement in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text and use it in any input in any programs. It works with Chrome and other programs that have an input field. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in Firefox :/ Is it possible to implement this? I would love to see this feature in Firefox.

I saw there are some Add-on for this, but I don't want to use them as there is already a feature in Mac.

I added an example screenshot. When I type "mymail", it automatically suggest what I set up before.

Thanks, best wishes.

Hi Guys,

I have a problem when I'm waking up PC from sleep mode. Please help me if you have ideas or solutions.

In my case, Firefox doesn't accept any action (scroll, click). The only solution is terminate Firefox by cmd+Q shortcut, and after restart, it works properly.

I can see same problem with my Mac Mini M1 and Macbook Air M1, but it didn't happen on Intel Macbook Pro.

Here's my environment,

OS:Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.2 Firefox:86.0 Display:Dell Q3219U Connection:USB-C to USB-C or USB-C to Displayport
