FireFox not asking for device authentication when filling the passwords

I am on macos 14.5, and Firefox 128.0

I have enabled "Require device sign in to fill and manage passwords.". Which should ask for device authentication when I try to do anything with the saved passwords. And it does that when I go to "My passwords" and try to access them.

But, it doesn't ask for device authentication when I am using saved passwords on login forms. Is this intended? Anyone can go to the login form, fill the saved password without authentication and then see it.

I have attached an image and here is a screen recording of it of it - https://streamable.com/orf1gj

HI,

Half the time when I go to a website like Google Flights or something to do with Google it just automatically brings me to my employer's website like to sign in and use the Google tools there. I don't even work for them anymore and I don't know how to get rid of it automatically wanting me to go there. It won't even let me use Google Flights because it says it not supported by my employer. 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.

I have developed a web application (wordpress) that shows a number of thumbnail images, each connected to an mp4 video. There is custom javascript such that if a user selects a number of thumbnail images, creating a playlist, all of the associated videos will play back in the order selected. This works perfectly in the Chrome, Edge, Safari, and Opera browsers. However, in Firefox, rather than playing back the videos in sequence, after each video, a gray screen appears in the video player (JWPlayer) that says the file is corrupted. The mp4 files are not corrupt since they work well in the other browsers. Also, once that gray box appears, by clicking the "Play Video"button the next video in the sequence will play but this must be repeated after each video in the playlist. Is there a setting that can be adjusted so that sequence will play in FIrefox? Is there a default setting that prevents the sequential playback?

Any help would be appreciated

Sorry I really do not know anything about web development but would appreciate some help. For the past week or 2 metamask extension will not open properly. Upon clicking the icon it just perpetually loads. I have the same issue when using any kind of wallet connect to metamask, be it on uniswap or metamask website for example. I have cleared cookie cache. I have tried both disabling state partitioning using network.cookie.cookieBehavior. I have also tried setting this to 0 to allow cookies, these did not work. I have of course restarted my computer/browser. This is definitely an issue with my firefox because I am able to use the metamask extension in chrome. I have attached screenshots of the console & debugger from the metamask site in the hopes it has some info that anyone may be able to provide advice. In the debugger & in my searching I see an issue with "source maps", in my debugger it is saying "no source map found" - again I cannot apologise enough for my lack of understanding but if this is my issue would anyone be so kind as to explain a fix in laymans terms.

Mac zoom-in gesture scales the whole viewport

Hi, I've been having a strange issue running Firefox browser on my Mac Pro M1. On websites like Figma or Maps, where the user can zoom in and out of a portion of the interface, my zoom-in pinches may cause the non-scalable part of the view to also zoom in. This happens if, by mistake, the starting position of my pinching is within the area of the non-scalable UI. See attached image as an example (the inspect tool remains of the right size, but as you can see, the left-hand-side interface is zoomed in, too).

If I try to restore the original size with the Cmd+- shortcut, the baseline is taken as my current zoomed-in view, so zooming out further just makes the text smaller in an already gigantic ui. Closing and reopening the tab also doesn't work.

Normally, performing the pinching-out gesture over the non-scalable part solves the problem. However, for some reason this stopped working today, and I'm now stuck with an unworkable view of Figma.

How can I fix this?

In this page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly

Several commands do not have corresponding keybindings. In particular, the ones I'm interested in are "Go one word to the left/right" as shown in the attached image.

Is there a reason why these are left out? Firefox is the only program on MacOS, that I have encountered, where it is impossible to have the caret skip words forward/backwards.

I can use Karabiner-Elements to fix whatever weirdness might exist, but not if Firefox has no way to actually trigger that command, nor a way to rebind keys in order to do so either.

Maybe I've missed something obvious.

PS: Writing this was annoying, exactly for the reason explained. The weird thing is that CTRL+backspace is the only "make key X operate on a whole word instead of a single character" that actually works. For example, "backspace" removes a single character in text edit fields. "ctrl+backspace" would remove the whole word.

PPS: I don't care too much if the modifier key is CTRL or CMD. I can rebind that. I just need it to either be *something*, or that one can set it to *something.

bookmarks gone after doing a factory reset on my Macbook despite signing into same Mozilla profile

Hiya good citizens of the internet 👋

Please help me recover my bookmarks 🥺

I've gone through every single support article on this topic and tried everything suggested and still no luck. This is my hail mary.

How I got here I needed to do a full wipe and reinstal of my macOS; this was conducted with the help of the Genuis bar. Upon reinstalling Firefox, I signed into my account and my bookmarks are all gone, records of them empty.

I should also note that nothing else ported over. No passwords, no browser extensions. Nada. The passowrds and extensions aren't a big deal. I use a 3rd-party password manager and can easily re-download the handful of extensions/widgets. But I heavily relied on bookmarks for both frequently visited sites and ones rarely-used which I knew were important for future reference. And I cannot remember 80% of them...

What else I've tried other than what's suggested in help article:

  • Because I did not check to confirm which Firefox profile I've been signed into for ages and ages before doing the reset, I thought maybe I had just signed into the wrong one. I proceeded to try every other email address I have, including two from my old workplace. None of the other 5 emails had profiles created. I know this because it prompted the sign up userflow; create a password, etc.
  • But I also know for a fact that the bookmarks were saved as part of a profile because I used the profile sync feature to auto-port all my bookmarks when I first got this Macbook a year and a bit ago.
  • The folders where bookmark backup info is stored locally are empty... Clearly, it wasn't stored in my icloud documents (that's on me for not double-checking)
  • I checked my other device (mobile phone) to see if I had firefox downloaded and was signed into the same account as the original, with the bookmarks still visible. Of course I didn't. I only use Safari on my phone 😭

""Grasping at straws: the only other things I can think of""

  • Is there some way of linking my MAC address with my IP address and using those to triangulate the correct profile?
  • Because my computer got wiped and nothing is saved locally, my only hope is that my bookmarks are floating around the ether. If so, I just need to figure out how to find them.

Any and all help/suggestions are massively appreciated!!

Thanks in advance,

Lauren

I find the current icons boring and not quickly informative. I'd like, for example, to Alphabetize them, and to not show some of them without actually removing them from my bookmarks list.

Can anyone assist?

This is so strange. Usually cookie selection is after you sign in not before...
