I have been trying all day to access the Centers for Disease Control website at cdc.gov. Firefox (83.0/Mac) just says it can't contact the server. I used Network Utility to look up the IP address of the site, which reported 198.246.102.49. I entered that address into Firefox and it refused to go there, saying it was a potential security risk.

So I tried Safari (14.0.1), and cdc.gov loads immediately with no problems.

What the heck?

Lately, every time I download a photoshop file, it now opens Photoshop and opens the file. How do I disable that from happening? I just want the file. I don't need to see it open. This has just been happening recently and I don't always need to open the files right away. It just slows my progress down and it's annoying! Thank you in advance!

My MacBook Pro is running OS 11.0.1 and using Firefox 83.0. My battery runs down faster than it used to. Apple suggested checking the Activity monitor and I noticed several instances of FirefoxCP Web Content. I have lots of tabs open. Most of them are using <1% of CPU, but one is about 50%. Is there any way to figure out what that is other than shutting down the tabs one at a time and watching the Activity Monitor?

I'm running on Firefox on macOS Big Sur with dark mode on. Google searches appeared with the normal white background color up until today. Now, the searches only appear with the white background color if I leave my operating system with a light theme. I tried using terminal to override the system background color for Firefox to try and get my searches to appear white again, but this didn't work. I also tried using an app which would run the commands itself (in case I had input the wrong commands), but this also didn't work. The odd thing is that even if I turn the Firefox theme to light or any other color, the Google searches still appear in dark mode. Also Firefox is the only browser where the searches appear in dark mode; in both Safari and Chrome the searches still have a white background. Is there any settings I can change in Firefox to fix this or anything else I can do?

Hi,

I have been designing a Hikvision CCTV system and bumped into a problem. Mac users cannot use a browser to access all the various controls and settings as Hikvision rely upon ActiveX, which is old and a security risk. I am informed that this problem exists in the whole CCTV industry! I am advised that Hikvision will eventually dump ActiveX in favour of HTML5, but this seems to require a new operating system!

I think it's incredible that a whole industry should build itself upon one piece of legacy. Surely browsers would be the way to go. That way online acccess to a CCTV system would be OS independent. Does onyone have some thoughts on this?

Why not implement an HTML5 plugin?

I'm no expert, but have been around computer tech since the early 1980s.

Comments/observations much appreciated.

Regards Michael

When I start up Firefox, my home page is a small square (3 inches square) showing a portion of my home page. When I try to expand the area (i.e. I hit the green button) it takes up the entire screen but I do not have access to the tool bar above the screen. Nothing I do seems to clear this up. I tried taking a screen shot of both screens but I got a message that the screen shot was too large. I don't know if there is a way to get around that or if my problem is common enough that someone can figure out what is happening. Help please!!

Firefox just updated itself on my mac today (Catalina) and wiped out every single thing I had: bookmarks, passwords, history, etc. I went ahead and created a new account for the email address I used before (at least I thought I'd set up an email address and logged into firefox with it), and I can see an old firefox profile folder but I can't get Firefox to register the old information and pick up the bookmarks and stuff. Also, every time I open a new Firefox window I have to sign in to my account ALL OVER AGAIN. It's like firefox can't retain a session. What's up? How do I fix this?? Help, please.

Since a few weeks only whenever you start browsing on any browser, a window opens asking you to agree or refuse the settings for tracking by cookies etc. Does this procedure annulate myown prefenrences settings?

Most of the people don't care about that and tired of being harrassed just agree to all trackings and cookies. But I don't want to be tracked and my preferences settings are all personnalised and quite strict on what I agree and what I don't agree.

So if firefox asks me to agree before I'm allowed to browse, and I agree to all of the tracking, does this annulate my privacy settings in the parametres?

Please give me an answer to [email]@gmail.com or call me +[phone number]

Or on this forum?

I've tried every solution already on this forum. I've gone from 1) never seeing any history or being able to save a bookmark, to 2) being able to save them and have history while the browser is open (they'd vanish when I'd close it), to 3) now history and bookmarks will stay if I close the browser, but as soon as my computer is turned off and on again, they are gone. So I guess there's progress being made, but I still would like to have a fully-functioning browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox several times, hoping that would fix it. Please help.

Better fix for question mark boxes in Firefox ?

This fixed my problem with question mark boxes (which I have seen, then not seen, then seen again over versions of FF on a Mac): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1178462

But the answer is 3 years old and nearly 30 FF versions ago, and furthermore requires lowering security. Is there a newer, better solution for fixing the problem with seeing question mark boxes instead of glyphs for certain fonts? (And one that doesn't require me to constantly toggle "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" in Preferences, which only works sometimes anyway.)

Hello,unfortunately I am not the most computer savvy person (sorry). I have been experiencing a few problems with Firefox over the last month or so. I currently use a Mac desktop and a Macbook and they sync together. I keep Firefox up to date as updates become available. My Macbook is fine but on my desktop I frequently have to Force Quit the application. In addition, I cannot clear my browsing history, cannot add a new bookmark nor able to delete a bookmark. I thought at first that maybe a bookmark I added may have caused a problem (?) on my desktop but the problem did not transfer over to my laptop upon syncing. I was thinking of uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it but I wanted to get an expert opinion. Is there a fix for this problem, have I done something wrong? As well, in your opinion are ad blocking applications such as 'ADBLOCK' or 'U BLOCK ORIGIN' compatible with Firefox / Apple Mac? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me, and thank you for continually delivering a superior browser!

Hi,

Bought a new M1 Mac. Was very happy when an M1 version of Firefox got released today only to find my account locked out trying to sign-in. I received the infamous message: "The confirmation email we sent to xxx@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data"

That is not true. I am receiving emails just fine and I never lost access to my email account.

Help please!
