I have read similar questions, but the answers are not helping me.

I have gone to options > Language and clicked on 'Check your spelling as you type'

I have downloaded a British English Dictionary

I've done the config: thing

But still it doesn't underline obvious spelling mistakes

like jfadskdjf sadj one!

And right-click doesn't bring up a dictionary option.

Please can someone help me out? Thank you  :)

Hi,

Whenever I focus input fields, Firefox automatically switch keyboard input source to Hangul (Korean). For example, If I focus a input field, Firefox changes the input source to Hangul. So I changed the input source to English manually and then if I focus other input field, Firefox changes the input source to Hangul again. I have two input sources on my mac. ABC (English) and 2-Set Korean and English is higher priority. I checked this on Chrome and Safari, both browser keep the input source.

This is my environment. Mac OS : macOS Big Sur Version 11.2.3 (20D91) Firefox : 86.0.1 (64-bit)

Thanks!

See below. I try to upload a file, and the "File Upload" window is grouped by file type. When I try to order the files by date or whatever, they are sorted chronologically within the groups, but STILL grouped by file type. Even different types of Word docs are grouped by Word version. It's difficult to find the files I need to upload like this.

How do I fix this? It's INFURIATING. I HATE THIS.

I'm working on an addon to automate taking screenshots of lecture slides. I'm using a canvas object to capture and save the file blobs and JSZip to zip everything together and download. But JSZip keeps throuhing the `unsupported file type` error. Even though blobs are supported.

Here's the relevant code I'm using Github File

I've submitted an issue to the maintainer which has some more debugging info. The script in the addon_context has some very quantum behaviour and changes output every time I console.log Github Issue

I'm wondering if there might be a problem on my end, with the way I'm generating and processing the blobs. The same code works in chromium based browser, I'm confused as to what Firefox does differently. Any help would be appreciated.

Preamble: All program updates are accepted when proposed on any of my 2 PCs, Linux or Firefox and other programs.

Situation:

  • Many multiple instances of Firefox are launched but can't be completed on my old (11 years old) tower PC (Linux based),
  • seems to saturate video card with multiple instances of screens (1 or 2 minutes at most) until it prevents other programs (eg Open office) to run
  • Tower PC works well for other programs (open office) if Firefox in not launched
  • while it works well when Firefox and other programs are launched) on my light PC ASUS (also with Linux) 3 years old.

Do I miss required minimal memory size on hard disk or on RAM, or is this an issue on Firefox, or...?

Can anyone please help and advise? Regards

I can watch Fubo, Netflix, Disney etc on FireFox - HOWEVER I have deleted history, cache, installed the latest Firefox beta app and I cannot progress past the home screen of Hulu. I can watch Hulu on Microsoft Edge but would much prefer to use FireFox. I even updated to the latest NVidia Driver with no success.

I have changed bout every setting that might possibly restrict Hulu under options/preferences. Sure have not found the elixir.

Do I sit tight waiting for Mozilla to get it handled or look up a Shaman?

There was a previous thread covering this topic, but the solution suggested hadn't really worked - clearing cache and cookies did not solve the problem. For anyone struggling with the same problem, I wanted to leave the working solution where they could find it.

Disable adblock on poczta.o2.pl.

I use Adblock Ultimate. When it was on, the log-in page showed up fine, but as soon as I pressed "log-in", all I could see was a solid block of background colour. Disabling adblock just on that one page solved the issue immediately.

Thank you all for your time! :)

Był poprzednio stworzony wątek na ten temat, ale rozwiązanie które tam było zaproponowane nie działało - wyczyszczenine "ciasteczek" i cache nic nie zrobiło. W razie gdyby ktoś inny jeszcze miał ten sam problem, postanowiłam zostawić rozwiązanie gdzieś, gdzieby mogli je znaleźć.

Wyłącz adblocka na poczta.o2.pl.

Ja osobiście używam adblock ultimate. Kiedy go miałam włączonego, mogłam się zalogować bez problemu, ale jak tylko kliknęłam "zaloguj", nie widziałam nic więcej niż tylko kolor tła. Wyłączenie adblocka tylko na tamtej jednej stronie zdziałało cuda.

Dzięki za wasz czas! :)

whenever FF opens/saves a particular file type, i set the 'Do this from now on' button for that file type or when i download a link that passes to a handler application, i click the 'always do this' button on the little toast dropdown. i do this because, shocker, i ALWAYS WANT FIREFOX TO DO THAT. but when i close the session, either manually or via reboot, when i launch back into FF, it asks me all over again for the same things.

now this crap has been a problem since time immemorial (since FF 26, IIRC) and it's always broken. when the hell is this going to be fixed, now that we have ONE MORE dialog that stupidly asks us to set a pref it has no intention of keeping?

somebody is gong to say 'make a new profile' or 'refresh FF', but none of that has ever worked and it doesn't work now because i've literally just setup six brand new machines and ALL OF THEM have this behaviour, ranging from Firefox, Firefox Nightly, Firefox Focus, right to Firefox Developer Edition. all of them fresh, right out of the box.

if anyone knows how to make this bloody behaviour stick, please let me know, otherwise the dev team needs to just remove the ask... or fix it and make the blasted thing do its job. >:(

I'm using a MacBook Air with OS 10.15.7, and I've updated Firefox several times. It tells me it's running version 86. However, when I try to access certain websites like Turbotax or even a reader app, it tells me my browser is unsupported. These sites always list Firefox as a supported browser under a list of: try these browsers instead. If I click on the Firefox link they give me, it takes me to the Firefox download page. I've even tried uninstalling Firefox and re-installing it. No luck. Anyone out there have a solution?
