Hello, Each time I try to download the new version of Firefox (70.0.1) it is redirecting to download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net however the link displayed from the right click of the mouse is https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-latest-ssl&os=osx&lang=en-US

I am also trying to find out the file size of the dmg (mine says 72.5Mb) and the Firefox app which seems to be very bloaty in excess of 203.9 Mb

When I drag the Firefox folder to the Applications folder.

However I have gatekeeper set to Allow Apps downloaded from the App Store. YET Firefox opens without having to go into gatekeeper and make changes.

eg. "Open anyway" or "App Store and Identified developers"

Can someone confirm the following i) Current version of Firefox for Max OS X ii) The current size of the dmg iii) The size of the app iv) whether download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net is a a valid Mozilla.org affiliated website

I wish to stop the new pop-up update notification message built into Firefox 69.0.#.

A pop-up message is not necessary, irritating and tiresome.

Why is there no option available to turn it off?

I get this yellow banner at the top of page with this text, A web page is slowing...

It so far only happens when I go to my bank's website and try to sign in.

I've tried several changes to security in preferences and nothing has helped.

This only started happening on this last firefox update to 70.0.1

Now I wish I could go back to the old version, 68 something...

thanks for any help Morris

If I try to drag and drop a new bookmark onto the bookmark icon (the star with the line under it), it USED to open up Bookmarks and I could place the new bookmark where ever. That no longer works.

I CAN drag/drop into a folder on the menu bar but not into bookmarks directly.

Bug voting is open. Your help file says "Click on the "(vote)" link that appears on the right of the "Importance" fields." I do not know what an importance field is. The word "importance" does not appear on the page. The word "vote" does not appear either. THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THIS LINK ARE NOT FOR REGULAR USERS: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=voting.html

Where is the vote button??? Here is the page where I want to vote: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1581664

As a beginner, I see nothing at the end of this page to be notified if responded. If I dont' get notified, I probably wont be able to find my way back here. Why so difficult for non-power users?!?

After updating to firefox 72 (maybe it was after 72.0.1 - I did not have time to check so fast) videos on youtube started stuttering. When I start video everything seems fine but after a while it starts microstuttering - image is twitching, movement of camera is not fluent.

It looks like it is related to all videos on youtube. I watch mostly 1080p 60fps and these most often cause this issue. Example video: https://youtu.be/1La4QzGeaaQ It is easy to observe it at 1:27 with camera movement and terrain being fluent or not. If I pause video and resume play after few minutes it seems fine for minute but then it starts being choppy again. It does not seem to be related to video quality. I had 0 dropped frames in yt stats. I found workaround - if I set media.wmf.vp9.enabled to false and restart browser with this setting set to false everything is fine. But when I set it to true (like it always was for me) problem starts to occur. However no matter what I set youtube still shows "codecs: vp09". I do not have this problem on microsoft edge. I never had this problem on firefox 71 and I did not add any new extensions since few weeks. It must be new firefox fault, not my hardware or configuration.

The search bar that used to be in the center of the page has suddenly moved to the top of the page in all new tabs: https://i.imgur.com/2f5VZjv.png

This started around noon today, and was not preceded by any updates or changes to Firefox or any of my addons, so far that I'm aware of.

How do I return the search bar to the center of the page?

I have read every article on this I can find, including everything in Firefox. I cannot get videos to stop automatically play. I can get them to not play sound. I have changed every single setting in about:config, media.autoplay. Nothing stops them from playing. I have used numbers from 0 to 5 in media.autoplay.default. Attached is a screenshot of my settings.

I do not have any plug-ins at this point, as I just installed Windows 10 and am configuring my computer.

I am extremely sensitive to these moving videos; they make me feel sick. So I really need them disabled. PCMag is a good example of a site with a million different (types?) of videos playing.

Hello,

Recently, I can't log in to another Google account on my Firefox browser. On google.com site, when trying to log in on another account by Account button at top right corner, it doesn't effect when clicking even though bottom left corner show detail link. It happens with Apps button next to Account button as well. I'm using Firefox version 70.0.1 (64-bit). It make annoying on me quite much cause I often work on more than one Google account.

I has IDM Integration Module, uBlock Origin and Ace Script add on. I realize IDM and uBlock add on but I don't know what is Ace Script. I tried to remove it but it can't (only disable it). I also tried to disable uBlock Origin but problem can't be fixed.

This issue arrised a few days ago when trying to re-sign into my firefox sync account on my W10 PC. When entering the 2FA number I got the message exactly like in the second attached image: "Your email was just returned" therefore I was unable to sign in.

Attempts to sign in elsewhere were successful and, at the time, I suspected it was an issue with 2FA because I had another issue with signing in to something else and went to firefox to validate that.

Although I can sign in normally now; I am still unable to add 2FA, account recovery, or a secondary email as I still get the same message.

M computer (still running W7) auto-updated FF to version 73.0.1 and two things happened. First, the tabs now cover the navigation bar, and second, the "plus" sign to the right of the tabs disappeared so I can't go to my pinned tabs or add a new tab.

Any help will be appreciated. I do have a userChrome file, but it was a copy and paste and I don't know how to adjust it to correct these things. Or if there's something in about:config? I just don't know what I would try to change.

I've been trying to take a screenshot, but can only grab the webpage and not the "frame" so I can't demonstrate what I'm talking about, but basically the tabs are sitting right on top of the navigation toolbar, obscuring it.

Thank you all for your help.
