When using Firefox on MacOS, the MacOS text expansion system does not work. These are setup in MacOS System Preferences and work in other apps.

I'm running MacOS 10.15.7 and FireFox 85.0.2 (also did not work in 84).

I tried it in iOS Firefox Focus and they don't work their either.

Anyone found a fix?

Hello Firefox community. I have used Firefox for more than 10 years. In the past few weeks Firefox has become almost unusable. My mouse movement freezes 40 to 50% of the time. When I use the scroll wheel to scroll down, half the time it scrolls up. I have refreshed Firefox but after a short period of time (10 minutes?) the same problem recur. So I have started using Edge on my other monitor and I have not had the same problems. I really liked Firefox, but I cannot deal with the freezes. If anyone has had similar issues, let me know if you have found a solution. Thank you.

What can I do if Firefox freezes when my MacBook returns from sleep mode?

I recently bought a MacBook Pro with the new M1 chip. It runs macOS 11.2.1. Firefox runs with software version 85.0.2 (64-bit). I have now noticed that Firefox sometimes freezes when I wake up the MacBook from sleep mode after some time of inactivity. I can then no longer click on anything in Firefox (Nothing happens when I click). In order to use Firefox again, I have to quit it completely. This also causes me to lose all open tabs.

There are no recent reports under about:crashes. The most recent report is from 2019.

I watch a lot of sports on my large desktop monitor, mostly via "Watch ESPN using ESPN3, ESPN+, SEC, and ACC. Within the last few days going to full screen mode leaves me with narrow black bars on both sides and the bottom, with none at the top. This happens on my desktop and twp laptops that I use. This is happening in Firefox but Microsoft Edge is still showing these same videos with absolutely no borders, like Firefox used to do. I love Firefox but will be using Edge to watch my sports until this is resolved. I "sync" Firefox with all three computers so may some inadvertent setting is affecting them all. Strangely, this doesn't seem to be affecting You Tube

Hi Firefox Community,

About a month ago, I purchased a 2020 HP Pavilion Laptop. While using Firefox, the system audio periodically drops with no system acknowledgment (drivers don't know the sound dropped). This means that sound will not play in Firefox or in any other application on the PC. (The system also won't play test sounds through Control Panel) The moment I close all windows in Firefox, the audio to my system returns. Any chance this is a common issue? Does anyone know why my computer's sound unexpectedly drops from time to time? Any help is appreciated

However, the other day I was using firefox and had 1 google doc tab open when my Mac have me a warning that it was out of memory. The main user of memory was Firefox, using 60 gb of memory, despite the fact that my laptop only has 8 gb of memory. I didnt get a picture as my laptop crashed soon after. Is this a common issue and what can i do to resolve it?

I am having this issue in Microsoft Edge as well as Firefox. I am using Windows 10. I have cleared my cookies/cache. Restarted my computer. I have checked my settings, unless there is something I missed.

I am having an issue with viewing images. I can see most images in the emails, but when I try to print, it is not there. For instance. I get an email to print a coupon from a restaurant. You click the link to print, but there is not coupon. I have attached what part of the email and what happens when you click to print. It comes up perfectly in Chrome.

I appreciate any help.

Firefox hogging hard drive space with temp files (cubeb-shm...input/output)

I've discovered that in my Users/UserName/AppData/Local/Temp folder, there are thousands of files eating up space with name "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-input" and "cubeb-shm-#####-#####-output", where "#####-#####" is a 10 digit number seperated by a hyphen.

I did a basic google search for these filenames and found several articles that talk about how firefox uses these, and normally creates and then deletes them, so there should only ever be one of each (input/output) file at a time. For some reason, I have thousands of these files, and they are eating up hundreds of Gb's of space on my hard drive. I only discovered this because my computer notified me I was running out of space. I manually deleted them, but I don't want to have to do this regularly, since it seems it's not expected behavior for Firefox.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Firefox 85.0.2, and there are no new updates available at the time of this writing. I'm really hoping someone can help me figure out how to get Firefox to appropriately manage these files. Help me Firefox community! You're my only hope!

I think Firefox Sync from Desktop to Mobile is having issues. I am not seeing the saved logins cascaded across the devices even after an explicit manual Sync option exercised too.

Or is it mandatory to install Lockwise also installed in both the devices. I was of the opinion that the built-in sync of the browser would take care of this requirement.

I just added a new subdomain on a site and when I entered the address the first time it had not been properly set up with an index page, so it loaded a defaultpage from my webhotel at /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

The problem: This redirect is now cached, so every time I enter the address in firefox I get redirected to the same default page, and a ctrl-f5 will not work since it will reload the redirected page.

I would really like to see a ctrl-enter from the address bar doing the same thing (as ctrl-f5 does for reload) but for the address typed in the address bar. Now I had to open developer-tools->Settings and click in "Disable Cache (when toolbox is open)". Which is roundabout and kind of annoying. I really don't see why this should be necessary, especially since it would be much easier to just tell people to ctrl-enter (or it's equivalent on Mac) if they run into this specific problem, with a very easy (for me the user) fix, even if it's not simple to implement.

This was working perfectly on my old PC, but recently I built a new one and logged into Firefox and it pulled down my extensions and what not..

What I am running into, is when I close Firefox and open it back up my tabs that were in containers do re-open but they are no longer in their respective container. I have to right click the tab and select "re-open in..." to get it back in the correct container.

I have tried restarting with add-ons disabled and it has the same result. Has anyone else experienced this?
