I can't play anything on Bandcamp. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or an OSX problem or a Bandcamp problem, but hoped it might ring bells with someone here. Been going on for a good couple of months (but I was away for a chunk of that so just getting back to it now). Bandcamp is the best of the streaming services and the fairest to musicians, so it deeply bothers me I can't play anything on it. I just click play, the pending wheel goes round as it fails to play track after track, and then it stops. I had a look on their help but no help there (at the time). I'm running Mojave (OS 10.14.16) on a 2018 mac mini.

Is there about:config or userChrome.css option to move system buttons - back button, forward button and hamburger button from nav-bar to TabsToolbar? Three fingers left or right swipe or shortcuts cmd <- -> are somehow not as fast as using buttons. Thanks

Hi I just downloaded Firefox. When you click on the menu bar icon it flickers and only displays after a couple clicks, same exact thing with context menu on any webpage as well as when I clicked the drop down menu to select the topic for this post.

also while using an online code editor, the tooltips that appear when you hover over your code are temporarily making the code disappear, seems to be issue with FF versus the online editor after investigating. Appreciate any troubleshooting suggestions, thanks.

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen

I have searched and tried everything, but I cannot delete old bookmarks. I have tried to click on the blue bookmark star, delete from the edit tab, open all Bookmarks and try to right click and delete. Nothing happens, but I can add new bookmarks. The bookmarks window does not have an organize tab to manage the links that way either. Is there a glitch in the system for macbooks?

A website I use with Firefox is very, very slow, although it was fast in the past. When I try it on my wife's computer the website is fast, yet my computer is newer and better than hers, so there is some kind of problem in my computer. The website is www.statcan.gc.ca. I can access Twitter and numerous other websites on my computer with no problems, but this one is deathly slow. Trouble is...I use it all the time.

I am running macOS Catalina Ver 10.15.7 on a Mac Pro. I removed Adobe Flash, emptied the cache, history, cookies, reinstalled Firefox and rebooted my computer. Did not help. The statcan website worked fine for years and now it is deathly slow, apparently for me only. Other sites are normal speed. I am puzzled. Any suggestions appreciated.

I have been using Safari for many years, and have collected hundreds of passwords for various forms in iCloud. It seems I have to start all over with FF, accessing these pwds one by one using Appple's Keychain app. This is really too cumbersome for comfort. How do I let FF use this info directly?

Hi – I recently restarted my browser and realized that I couldn't connect to any https sites – each attempt would throw a "the connection was reset" error.

I've changed my network settings from DNS-over-HTTPS to No Proxy and sites are now loading correctly.

I'd certainly like to use DNS-over-HTTPS if possible for the greater security, so I'd like to know what's causing the problem.

a. Is it just because I'm in Canada that DNS-over-HTTPS is throwing these errors? (Note: I was living in the US until recently) b. Are there some other proxy or ISP settings that might be causing the problem? c. Or should I be considering whether my connection has an actual security concern?

Thanks.

I use Firefox as my primary browser on my Mac Book. I have never changed my default browser from Google and if I go into preferences it says my default browser is still Google. Despite this, about 2 weeks ago all my searches started being in Yahoo instead of Google and it is getting really annoying now. I can't change it to any other browsers or back to Google, it's just stuck on Yahoo.

I'm having an issue with Firefox because I want to keep the containers opening on the same website after I click it from a different website but for whatever reason Firefox seems to keep forgetting and asking me again despite the fact that I click the button that says remember my choice.

I wonder if this has something to do with my cookie settings but I'm not sure I'm currently confused how to manage those like if I should just allow cookies per session in Firefox or allow them entirely I mean I'm thinking that with the containers since I have everything isolated individually (That took forever really need an option for that Mozilla) I don't need to worry about the effects of cookies anymore is this correct?

Also would there be a way to even keep cookies but just stop the login information from being saved on the site? Because with me using containers now I think that's my biggest issue from what I think I understand at least.
