I have an iMac with Sonoma 14.3.1 with Firefox 115.9.1 esr . It is for personal use, not for a business. I just learned that there is another Firefox version (124.0.2) which is not esr....

Which version should I use and why?

If I should use the "normal" version, how do I replace the esr version with the "normal" one ?

Thanks.

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.

Hi,

The Resy.com website has not been working on Firefox/Mac OS for over a month.

I thought it was a Resy issue but they replied:

"I thank you for your patience while team have been investigating this issue. Unfortunately, it would appear that Fire Fox is no longer supporting our platform. We do not have any more information as to why this is happening, but we do recommend using Chrome or Safari."

Is there a fix in the works?

Thanks, Tony

I have a magazine e-subscription to Tricycle.org the problem is that, according to Tricycle Tech Support, my pop-up blocker keeps blocking my log-in attempts, and the Tricycle site keeps asking me to subscribe, and their Tech Support team says the probem is on my end and suggests that I disable my pop-up blocker. I'm wondering if mozilla/firefox will permit me to disable the blocker at tricycle.org without interfering with every other thing the blocker is doing? I have Mozilla VPN and Firefox on my Mac laptop. Thanks! -- Jim Dollar

Firefox screenshot feature: How to prevent clicking from affecting page content when taking screenshots?

Hi there,

I've noticed that since a certain update (1 - 2 months ago?), when using the Firefox screenshot feature (that is, using Shift + Command/Ctrl + S), clicking on webpage still has effect on the webpage itself: After pressing Shift + Command/Ctrl + S, so that the browser enters screenshot mode, I have to click on a certain area in order to orient the screenshot camera, then click somewhere again, in order to click the "Copy" or "Download" button when the screenshot is ready. If I remember right, these two click actions wouldn't influence the webpage itself at all in older versions of Firefox, because in the screenshot mode the interaction between webpage and mouse clicks was "blocked". However, this is not the case anymore. That means, the webpage could no more look like how it looked like at the moment I wanted to take the screenshot, due to the unblocked mouse click. Even though for most static pages it's not a big deal, for many dynamic pages like online games this is absolutely annoying. Any workaround?

A bit of background, I have been working on systems since the Commodore Vic 20, so I'm not 'new' or would typically be helpless as many are if they have system problems.

Over the last week I decided to format my Mac and re-install the operating system. I have a lot of graphics design that I will be doing for an unknown period of time. I have over the years collected many free fonts and I started installing them about 5 days ago. I don't believe my installing fonts wouldf have affected anything within Firefox, but Firefox is the only browser that I'm having this problem with. I checked Safari and google displays everything as it should as well; my graphics deisgn software forums are displaying fine. I have not used google for anything during the period that I was installing the fonts, so I don't know exactly when this started but yesterday I discovered it.

I tried going to the menu on the top right hand corner -> Help -> More Troubleshooting Info -> Refresh Firefox. I then went into MacCleaner Pro -> Clear Cache and Clear Purgable Data. Then restarted the machine. No change.

I then saved my passwords and bookmarks, then uninstalled Firefox using MacCleaner Pro and then went to Remove Remaining files.

Downloaded a new copy of Firefox and the problem still exists.

I tried changing the theme to others. Went to Settings -> General -> Language and Appearance. Set theme to dark, then back to automatic. Changed the main font from (Default) Times to Times New Roman and back to (Default Times) ... but still this problem exists...

Help... Please and thank you.

I use multiple windows with multiple tabs in each window. I am wondering if Firefox can be improved so that when I open a link in a new tab it opens in my CURRENT window (the one I'm looking at in front and the one in which I asked to add a new tab) rather than a window in the background or minimized. Firefox chooses to open new tabs in the last window in which I opened a new tab, even if they're in the background or minimized, which gets very annoying because I am constantly switching between windows to work on different topical projects. If this could be fixed I would appreciate it! Thanks.

Unable to connect

An error occurred during a connection to www.counterpunch.org.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

So, what should the network connections be (I haven't a clue)! As far as I know the configuration has been automatic up to now; for all other sites it works just fine! Yours is esoteric and has lost me.
