I used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

So obviously "We’ve reduced CPU usage on macOS in Firefox and WindowServer during event processing" is demonstrably false.

I went to Headspace, streamed an audio in Safari, noted the %CPU in Activity barely budged more than 20%. Then streamed the same audio in Firefox 93, noted the %CPU rocketed up to 150% and the laptop got hot and the fan kicked into high gear. Then I updated Firefox, restarted computer fresh, streamed the same audio and.....surprise, surprise no fix, no change, %CPU rockets up like before.

When I attempt to open Email after opening wowway.net in Firefox, a new window opens at "http://wowway.net/files/wow/login.php?bounceto=http%3A%2F%2Fwowway.net%2Fzmail%2F%3Fautologin%3Dtrue" and the screen only contains this message: "Please wait while we are logging you in." It never logs in. Wowway.net says the problem is with Firefox and instructed me to use Microsoft Edge to connect to wowway.net and that does work OK. When I click Email from wowway.net in Microsoft Edge, it correctly connects me to "https://email.wowway.com/modern/" from which I can access all my email.

PLEASE HELP! I want to access my email with wowway.net through Firefox as I have for years.

Thank you, Kent Holcomb kentmh@wowway.com

This latest update has broken so many websites for me. I can't see areas of most of the websites I visit, getting a "You are not connected securely to this site" notice even though there's a certificate when I check and it's always for a different reason. One unsecure image or one unsecure content warning or something along those lines and it's driving me nuts! I can't use a private window because I can't sign into any sites with the private window. All I get is the spinning, working on it thingy.

There was a place where I could whitelist sites to override this problem but now I can't find it and if I can't do something about this, will have to use a different browser, which I don't want to do. Can someone give me an idea here on what to do to bypass this? I've trusted these sites for years. They didn't just all go rogue the minute this update came through!

I'm on Windows 10

Recently I upgraded my Windows 10 to Windows 11 and since doing so, I've had consistent errors while browsing the web on Firefox. Most notably the "Humm. We're having trouble finding that site." error message.

For example, when visiting, say Verizon.com, the tab will display the aforementioned error to which I press Try Again and the website loads correctly every-time. No hiccups on the refresh.

I've tried the following:

  1. I've performed a completely clean uninstall of Firefox and then reinstall
  2. Cleared all browser history/cache
  3. Removed all extensions
  4. Disabled IPv6, HTTPS Over DNS, No Proxy
  5. Ran through Firefox's troubleshooting
  6. Used Firefox Troubleshooting Mode in the Browser
  7. Tested that the problem does not happen while using Edge

I've never had a single problem on Windows 10 with Firefox. Curious if others are experiencing the same issues and if there are any fixes. Nothing else on the PC has changed.

  • Windows 11 21H2 2200.348
  • Network driver is the latest Win11 edition
  • Firefox 95

I'm trying to customize colors of Firefox developer edition. I would like to have a dark toolbar bit i don't wont to enable dark mode for any website.

I have installed Firefox color and whenever i choose a darker color for the toolbar all websites are displaying their dark versions (it behaves like the dark mode is turned on).

I have tried to manual set browser.theme.content-theme and browser.theme.toolbar-theme but after every restart these get overridden.

Does anyone know how to make this happen?

The funny thing is that everything was fine before today's update...i tried reinstalling Firefox and also i tried disabling all extensions...

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

I have used wowway.net for my email service on Firefox for years. Recently I have become unable to login to my email account using wowway.net. When I click the "Email" button on the wowway.net homepage (https://wowway.net/?inc=27) from within Firefox, a new page opens entitled "Redirecting to Login" with the message "Please wait while we are logging you in." This page stays open indefinitely without connecting to "https://email.wowway.com/modern." The wowway technical support have been unable to help me solve the problem and suggested I use Microsoft Edge instead of Firefox. Microsoft Edge does work, but I much prefer to stay with Firefox if possible.

Can you help me?

Firefox always uses US settings instead of UK

I have set Firefox Developer Edition (Windows 10 20H2 & 21H2 and Ubuntu 18.04 & 20.04 installations, always kept up to date), to use English (United Kingdom) settings in preferences. I have installed the UK Dictionary and made it the default for spellchecking. The Windows installation is also supposed to be respecting the OS regional settings. Firefox seems to be totally disregarding the settings and always giving me US as the location and US English for the spellcheck. This has been an issue for months if not years. I understand that many pages will be US biased, that is not a problem. The problems are that my country preference is being detected as US, and that I can not seem to get Firefox to actually use the UK Dictionary. I can supply additional information as required

I know setting 'permissions.default.image' with a value of '2' will block the downloading of images. However, this also removes the IMG tag from the page source. Is there a way to retain this, because I want access to the image path in the SRC attribute; for development testing purposes via Selenium.

Thanks.

Hi,

Back in the old days of classic extensions, they had access to FF's GUI elements, provided such privileges were asked in a manifest file.

For example, there were extensions that added tab's title to the URL bar. And I want to do exactly that nowadays, too.

WebExtensions can not do that but this should work with userChrome.js, right?

If so, maybe someone has already done it and I simply could not find it. Does anybody know?

If not, then how do I access the URL bar object to add text (e.g. page's title) to it or something else?

Thanks in advance.

I have an existing collection of extensions on AMO, I can add and remove extensions from it and add my notes to the extensions, but if I try and edit the collection info (name, description and custom URL), it incorrectly errors, claiming I have invalid characters in the custom url. Even if I don't actually change anything when I hit "Edit", I can't save, I have to cancel out.

I don't really care too much but probably someone should take a look at some point.

There isn't a forum for the website specifically, so posting under FF desktop as that is browser I was using when this occurred (FF Win10 x86-64, Dev edition)
