Firefox with Voice Over on Mac OS

I'm using Firefox on a Mac with the built-in screen reader Voice Over. When I need to log in to a web page, with a User Name & password stored in Apple's Key Chain utility, I typically press Command-Shift-A & the User name & Password fields are automatically populated. Unfortunately, with my new installation of Firefox, I've found that the key combination in question is used to launch the "Add Ons" window. Is there a work-around for this? The Command-Shift-A is the only way that a blind user can populate those fields from Key Chain. The buttons, usually visible in or around those fields for a sighted user are inaccessible.

Thanks so much,

CJ

HI FIREFOX! Many websites are not readable. I can see these correctly in Safari. I tried getting the latest Firefox updates. It did not fix the issues. Bizarrely, I can paste into another application and read the gobblity gook. So I think it is just a font issue. I really do not want to go back to Safari. Poshmark and Fedex are the two websites I experienced issues with today. Fedex would not interact properly with Firefox but I could find my tracking information on Safari. I have had the problem previously but did not have time to look into it that day. 16" Macbook Max M1 running Monterey

Firefox crashes when signing into Outlook webmail

Whenever I try to sign into Outlook Webmail (https://outlook.office.com/), Firefox crashes. I am on a MacOS Monteray (12.2.1). I have cleared all Firefox caches and cookies. I have completely uninstalled and re-installed Firefox. I have run it with my usual extensions, and completely clean, without any extensions and just the default settings.

The initial login page loads fine, and I type in the email address associated with the account. This takes me to the password page. If I type in an incorrect password, the site tells me so immediately. If I type the correct password, Firefox crashes--I get the spinning beachball cursor and (application not responding) in the dock. My only recourse is to force-quit Firefox.

Outlook webmail used to work fine in Firefox--I used it on this very machine nearly every day. The only change was that I recently had to update my email password. But again, I have had to do that every three months for years and have never had any problems.

Outlook webmail works just fine on this machine in Safari and Chrome. It's only Firefox that has any problems with it.

Any ideas about how to fix this would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I have no problems with my Firefox instances on Android and Linus but on MacOS, it's a nightmare! I suspect it's a synchronisation matter because, on OS, it constantly, constantly is askin for me to log-in but neither my OS pssword nor Firefox (master password) are accepted. I'm loathe to reset my password because I really do not think it will make any difference.

It's so annoying

Best,

P-)

On my phone, both passwords from Firefox and iCloud auto fill into my browser, but on Mac I do not see anything besides the Firefox ones. I keep my most up-to-date passwords in iCloud, but would love to use auto fill in Firefox as I am not a fan of Safari. Is there a way to set this up?

I am unable to get the "Roboform" (password app) start page to load in Firefox. I have the extension installed as far as I can tell but I believe that's where the problem lies, the extension installation. I am able to install the extensions in both Safari and Chrome correctly so the start page loads in the browsers. Thanks in advance for any help.

All of a sudden I am not able to download files on my MacbookPro in Firefox. I am using Version 126 on Mac OS 12.7.5 Monterey.

Downloads are working if I use Safari, but I do not use it. I just used it for testing purposes. Is anybody else having this problem? I've already "refreshed" Firefox per their suggestion.

My Mac: macOS Monterey 12.5.1 Firefox: 105.0.1 Since I updated my system Firefox has trouble loading and closing some pages, especially my BOA and ATT.net email accounts. Any thoughts on why this is happening and what to do about it? It's especially concerning with the sites I go to to pay bills.

ATT.net I can sign in OK but then I get a page that says redirecting and it never loads. When I use Chrome, I'm not having a problem. All my bookmarks are set in Firefox so I'd rather not have to change them all over to Chrome. I can sign into my BOA account with no problem. When I sign out of BOA I get a window with a spinning dial that says signing out please wait but it never stops, leaving me wondering if it's exposed.

Thanks, Marnie McNamara

Hi! I have the Firefox browser on my MacBook Pro and I also use the Mozilla VPN. I’ve been trying to sign into my Firefox account for several weeks now and keep getting a ‘Cookies and local storage are required’ error message. The problem is that cookies are already enabled. I have tried restarting, updating the browser, doing it with the VPN on and off, listing firefox as an exception, and everything else I can think of. I’m currently entering this on my phone, because the browser also won’t let me sign into my account on my laptop without enabling cookies and local storage.

Any suggestions? I keep getting stuck in a loop.
