Hello, I use Firefox on my Mac, and I'm a seller on Etsy. For several days now, I have not been able to get to any page on the Etsy site (my shop, Etsy home page, Etsy help, other shops...). I can get there on my iPhone (Safari) and by using Chrome, which I would rather not use.

I've tried shutting down my Mac, and I've tried quitting and re-starting Firefox.

This is not the first time I've had this issue, but this is the longest it has lasted. I checked with a friend who is also an Etsy seller, and she's experiencing the same problems. It occurs to me that the intersection between Etsy sellers and Firefox users might well be a large group.

The details: MacBook Pro 2015, MacOS Catalina 10.15.7; Firefox 83.0. Today is 2 Dec 2020.

If this is about clearing the cache, I'd appreciate some info about how to do it, as well as what might else could be impacted.

Thanks for any help on this!

I had the old firefox (blue background) on my Mac before and have since upgraded to the one (purple background). Now everytime I open firefox, or open a new window in firefox, I have to sign in to my firefox account. On the previous version (blue one) it just kept me signed in. How can I get it to do this again?

Firefox, latest version, keeps logging me out of sites. I have tried all troubleshooting suggestions offered on the web that I could find, short of starting all over by resetting profile, which I do NOT want to do.

Anyone have any suggestions other than the standard ones about cookies, preference settings having to do with cookies, private browsing, deleting all cookies, deleting cookies files in profile folder, extension issues, etc?

Thank you!

How To Remove URL From Address Bar Autofill

Every time I type in two particular letters in the address bar, a particular website address is immediately autofilled. I don't want this address coming up ever, but I can't figure out how to stop that from happening. Numerous searches about this come up with obsolete solutions.

The latest that I have found in Mozilla support says:

If you want to remove an entry from the autocomplete list:

   In the address bar, use the up and down arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight the entry.
   Press Shift+Delete to remove the item from the list. 

Unfortunately, this simply does not work at all. So what is the actual way to do this?

I'm Mac OS X Catalina, FF #83.

Websites constantly refuse to let me login using Firefox browser, but works on other browsers

I was not able to log into my bank account website tonight, because it kept giving me an error saying 'Feature temporarily unavailable' every time I tried. (attached) I contacted the bank Support, and they told me to clear the cache and try again, but that did not help either. I was able to get into my account using Chrome browser, but this is a constant thing with Firefox, that websites will not work properly for one reason or another, and I have to open a different browser to be able to complete my objectives. Firefox consistently complains about permissions to open websites that were working fine just this morning. Almost like it is random, or something. As well, trying to use online chat in Firefox, is a joke, and I almost religiously have to go to a different browser to chat with anybody online. I have noticed that, for around the last year or so, Firefox browser has become less and less useful,and more and more tedious to use, which is leading me to think about changing my default browser to one that is more reliable. I have been using Firefox, as my browser for many years now, and hope that it can be corrected somehow, because I do not want to switch to a different browser truthfully. I do have addons, mainly ad blockers, but if I remove all addons, the same problems remain. Am I going to have to switch to a different browser that is more consistent, if I want to be able to have reliable internet usage, until you guys get your collective acts together, or what??

I go to a website and need to upload a file. I click the upload file button on the web page and the pop up will not appear. I've done every option imaginable for Pop-ups to no avail.

What security setting am I missing?

It works in chrome which I prefer not to use but I suppose I'll make the switch if I have to.

Regards,

I have to start from scratch each time I want to log in to Firefox. I am asked for user name and password, then I am taken to a screen that says "getting started with Firefox" as if I've not set it up already. How can I access Firefox without having to go through this process?

I turned on my computer today and when I went to speed dial 2, it wasn't working. Restarting Firefox didn't help. I checked my extensions and found that it had been automatically disabled. The challenge I'm facing is ... there were specific links that I 'need' that I cannot access. Is there a way to recover said data?

MacBook Pro, Mojave 10.14.3; Recently updated Firefox to 83.0, and now my fonts on other sites are messed up (particularly Yahoo mail; See screen shot). I've tried re-starting with add-ons disabled and it does fix the problem, but I need my add-ons enabled. I also tried a Firefox refresh, but still does not fix the problem. I've also tried checking and unchecking the box "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above," in Firefox preferences, but that doesn't help either. Hopefully someone has figured out how to fix this?

TIA - Beth

I recently installed Firefox on my new computer. I used Firefox on my previous desktop, and have an existing account. Every time I launch Firefox on my new computer, I get the "Let's Get Started" splash screen. I log on to my account, and I have to set up my screen with the bookmarks toolbar, etc. every single time I open the application. Why does it not remember me and retain these settings? On my old computer, I stayed logged on even when I quit the application. Help?
