Here are the facts of my case, now closed as duplicate.

I just remembered that heretofore, Firefox has automatically disabled Add Ons that were amiss. Rather than action DrMoishe Pippik's bifurcation stopgap myself, can't I do nothing — and wait a week or two — if someone more technologically skillful deduces the astray Add On, and Firefox disables it?

  • I start Firefox. It works fine for a time
  • Then, out of the blue, it says I have no Internet connection
  • But, every other browser works just fine
  • If I restart Firefox, it again works just fine, until it doesn't, again
  • It just started doing this a few days ago
  • I know everyone says this, but I didn't change anything other than the automatic update Firefox performed

Does anyone have a solution to this problem? Thanks.

I have the home tab set to a specific US news website. I use a VPN and it connects to a US server. With VPN off or on, the set URL used to work when I clicked the home tab. Now, with VPN off or on, when I click the home tab, it takes me to the local language version, not the English US URL version. I doubled checked my settings, and it still is for the US URL. Any ideas?

I have a new installation of Firefox on a new M1 MacBook Pro. I copied over carefully selected settings files from my old computer, and now several icons are missing from the drop-down search and address boxes. I attempted renaming several of my transferred files to see if Firefox would rebuild them and correct the problem without success. Reinstalling Firefox was likewise unsuccessful. Does anyone know how to restore them? Please see attached image. Thank you.

Beginning yesterday after installing a set of fresh MacOS updates, Firefox is repeatedly hanging on my iMac. My computer CPU spins up and Activity Monitor tells me that the process trustd is having a field day, up to 99% CPU usage. Then Firefox stops everything and in the middle of something basic like opening a search engine page or scrolling on an already-open page, I get a spinning rainbow ball of death and have to Force Quit from the taskbar several times before it closes.

Here is what I have tried to resolve:

  • Deleting and reinstalling
  • Troubleshooting mode
  • Downgrading to version 93.0
  • Stopping and restarting the trustd process from both Activity Monitor and from Terminal
  • Full deletion of all Firefox files from command line and installing 96.0.2.

The same problem keeps recurring. For reference, it's on a 2020 iMac running macOS Catalina (10.15.7), i9/16GB. My other machines are not affected. I have not yet upgraded to Big Sur or Monterrey on advice of workplace sysadmin.

Is anyone else seeing this issue with trustd? I am not seeing this problem with other software, just Firefox, but I can't figure out when Firefox calls trustd and what it asks it to do when it does.

Advice warmly welcome.

Hello! Firefox is now controlling the volume of my system via a volume fader that appears in the upper left corner of my screen. Also because of this- I can no longer use "control" button and my mouse to expand any images. In short- Firefox has taken over total control of my mouse. Hoping you can help get this back to normal! Thank you!

This is a question in relation to [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1302462|this]

The fix suggested there seems reasonably easy to follow but I'm a bit unsure about this

Delete all extensions* files and compatibility.ini in the Firefox profile folder to reset the extensions registry.

Apart from compatibility.ini I can see two extensions*, namely extension-preferences.json and extensions.json. Is that correct?

Now I'm supposed to delete those three files. And here comes my question:

What does New files will be created when required. mean? What I'm worried about is that all my extensions will disappear and I will have to start with from scratch reinstalling them all again.
