Mac OS text replacement doesn't work (and spell check?)

I use text replacement strings (System Preferences > Keyboard > Text) for a lot of things, and they work system wide except for in any forms in Firefox!

Is there something I can turn on/off in about:config to allow this?

Is this related to Firefox insisting on using its own spell check dictionary instead of the built in OS dictionary that works in every other app? Can I turn this feature off as well?

Hey all - been trying to troubleshoot an issue with Firefox (multiple of the latest versions, but 77 currently) on Mac OSX Catalina, appreciate any help!

Issue: Certain websites intermittently display strange behavior, such as not loading interactive content (videos/gifs on reddit, for example, displaying as static images) and some sites not loading images at all (Twitter shows empty boxes where images would be) and a few other similar issues.

Steps I've tried: - Using a private window solves almost all the issues. But disabling all extensions and plugins in a normal window doesn't solve it. (I believe I understand private windows to use the RAM for caching but use the HDD under normal circumstances?) - Enabling/disabling VPN makes no difference, nor does what network I'm on, and other devices on this network have no similar issues - Other browsers on the same computer have no issues - Malware, anti-virus, etc all are active and scan has been run a few times. - Apple's hardware diagnostic turns up no issues, and this has happened now in FF over multiple of the latest versions (not sure when exactly it started) on two different Macbooks, though the new one is from an image of the old one (maybe that's something?) - Uninstalling/reinstalling FF does not make a difference

Where I'm at: The only thing that sort of worked (But it's now stopped working on certain sites, but continues to work for others) is moving FF's profile folder, uninstalling, and reinstalling. I was lead to believe FF would then create a new folder when this happened, but it just kicked up an error for me and wouldn't start. When I moved the old profile folder back and started up the freshly installed version with the old profile folder, the problems were all solved. Though as mentioned, they are starting to happen again on some of the sites. No errors or changes have been made that I can identify, plenty of space available on the HDD, etc.

I've become a big fan of FF over the years (over Chrome), and want to stay in a privacy-focused browser, but I haven't been able to find much that seems to help this specific situation online. Any help is appreciated!

Crashing when thunderbolt interface selected for playback

Hi there,

Firefox has started crashing anytime I try to playback media with my Focusrite interface selected for playback. This issue has been ongoing for a few months. Any page like youtube, with video or media embedded causes a crash.

For reference, I'm using a Focusrite Red8pre on a Macbook Pro. The error does not occur when using the laptops speakers for playback.

Any help here would be appreciated.

Cheers, -Harry

Hi, When I turned on my computer this morning, my bookmarks were not there. I've tried the steps laid out by Firefox, but no success. I tried another browser, Safari, which I seldom use, and Safari bookmarks were still there. I have many different bookmarks in Firefox so I'd rather not switch over to Safari unless absolutely necessary. Nothing else is missing, so I doubt if I've been hacked. I did check a bank account, which was fine. I'm not a high profile person, so I doubt if I've been targeted. And I see the pic of the lock closed in the URL bar constantly. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I'm on Mac OS 10.15.5 (Catalina) Firefox 78.0.1 (64bit) Thanks, JJ

[Firefox won't accept my master password] From Firefox Help I was told I could try another profile if I had one. Beside the Default Profile I have one in Root Directory and one in Local Directory. Instructions say to use one by clicking LAUNCH PROFILE IN NEW BROWSER. That command does not appear anywhere. ???? IF I could find that command, where could I find the command SET AS DEFAULT PROFILE?

Why can't I access, comment on Facebook now with the new upgrade? I'm ready to just delete Firefox and go with Safari, and hopefully never the dreadful Google Chrome.

I need help. I'm certain it's just a checkbox somewhere but I don't have hours to peruse multiple articles and online gibberish to try to find it.

Can someone actually help - Not the standard I tried, this and that, but actual help and definitive direction?

I'm using 78.0.2 (64-bit) Firefox on Mac OS and using a windows keyboard. Since most commands use cmd key and not ctrl key, it's a bit awkward on my current keyboard. Also, my mouse buttons which are programmed to go back don't work in Firefox. They work in chrome. Where do I access keybinding settings and how can I modify them? Thanks.
