This is just me or Firefox doesn't support drag and drop images to the desktop and download them, and I also can't drag and drop to Adobe Illustrator to edit images and what only comes out is a link, if in Chrome it's not like that

Anyway, my OS is Mac, is it because I'm a Mac so I can't?

I've installed two versions of Firefox in one Mac, 68.8 esr and 80.0.1. Though I want 68.8 to work as default browser, when I clicked URL on other apps, new 80.0.1 opened it always. One preference screen, both installations say that "Firefox is currently your default browser". No UI to set one as default.

Anyway to specify it?

I recently starting using browser-based Gmail on Firefox (version 80.0 (64-bit)). When I now to try to send an email from MS Word and other programs I receive the message "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I also get a MAPI error. How do I link these programs to Firefox-based email?

Firefox was updated last night on my laptop. After the install it started for several seconds then shut down. Every time I tried to start it it did the same. I used the troubleshooting page when it eventually did load which recommended clearing the cache and refreshing Firefox. Having done a refresh before I was surprised to see that there was no Old profile folder (or whatever it's called). After this I tried to start Firefox and received the error message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessable. It was now impossible to start Firefox as all I got was the same message. I thought something had gone wrong with the update, or refresh, so decided to uninstall, then reinstall. This did not solve the problem either. I am now stuck without Firefox on my laptop. OS is Windows 10pro version 2004.

More of an FYI rather than a question.

The Google Cloud Console (console.cloud.google.com) navigation menu has been unresponsive in Firefox for two days now. I tested this on both my MacBook Pro and my Windows PC. I logged in on a Chromium browser, the new Edge, and the menu works. I don't have Chrome installed on either my PC or my Mac, but I assume it works.

Not sure if this is a Firefox issue or a Google issue. Basic things like clearing history and cookies didn't help.

Running current updated WIN10. After updating Firefox, it will not launch. I get multiple messages, saying that Firefox is already running, close the current Firefox. I have removed all mozilla apps for a fresh install. Yet it continues to do the same. I am forced to use Edge.

Anyone experiencing the same, and any answers?

Windows Mail App opens hyperlinks minimized in Firefox

About 3 weeks ago, I started using the Windows Mail App as my email client. Every time I try to click on an email hyperlink within the body of an email, it opens the link minimized in Firefox. I then have to go to the task bar, click on the Firefox icon to maximize and then view the link.

Prior to this, I was using Outlook as my email client. I never had this issue when using Outlook. I would simply click on a hyperlink within the body of an email, and it would automatically populate a maximized and ready to be viewed tab in Firefox.

I tried to reach out to Windows support, and of course, they are claiming this is a Firefox browser issue. They are stating that I have to tell Firefox the way HTM's are handled. However, I don't see such option in Firefox and as I explained, I never had to do this when using Outlook in conjunction with Firefox.

Thanks in advance for any help provided. FYI - if it is of any help, I am running the latest version of Windows 10, and the latest version of the Firefox browser (80.0.1).

Hi,

Last week, Firefox told me to update my android phone browser. I did & updated it with firefox nightly. I used this opportunity to change my main email address. Then, I decided to create a new my keyword, on my phone. At last, I created a backup key to protect my keyword & downloaded it, but can't find it anymore.

Since, impossible to open my account on any of my devices (Macbook, IPad & Android phone) because my main keyword is considered wrong.

Computer browser is 80.0.1 version IPad browser is 28.0 (18809) version.

I have a main email address & a secondary one (which receives no information from firefox). On my phone, I'm asked a 4 figures code that I can't find anywhere. I tried to download the QR code authentification application, but my MAC browser does not show any QR Code, it asks me the main keyword.

I don't want to loose all my IDs & keywords. I'm going mad, what should I Do ?

Until recently, whenever I would drag & drop a website address to my desktop from Firefox, it would create a shortcut with the website icon. But now it just creates a Firefox icon with a URL file and no option to change the icon. It is not a shortcut. Edge Chromium also does the same now. What happened? I am using Windows 10 v2004 64bit and Firefox 80.0.1 64bit. I have one other desktop and two laptops that still work as always and create an actual shortcut with the website icon.

So, this is quite a recent problem that i've noticed. When i go to Youtube's home page, it loads the few first videos' thumbnails, but then, about the 3rd row of thumbnails, it stops loading more thumbnails and keeps showing the loading icon forever.

I've visited Youtube on Chrome and it works just fine. I've cleared my cookies and cache data on Firefox and it worked, but it doesn't take long for the problem to appear again. Sorry, but what am i missing here?

Thank you in advance!
