My wife keeps getting a popup message, "Can't update Firefox to the latest version. Download a fresh copy and we'll help you install it." But she has the latest version, she has automatic updates, and when she downloads and installs it manually, it's the same version as before, and she keeps getting the popup message.

She has MacBook Pro, 13" using the Mojave OS Version 10.14.6, Firefox version 77.0.1 (64-bit).

Some of the bookmarks I have on the toolbar will open the web page automatically and some will not. For example, if I click one site it goes right to my summary page without logging in. If I click on another it goes to the log in page. The user name & password auto-fills but how can I get these sites to open automatically when from the short cut in the toolbar.

Could it be a Windows 10 issue? I didn't seem to have this problem with the old Edge browser but now I get the same thing in the new Edge, Chrome, and Firefox.

I used to use Theme & Font Size Changer and was able to change the fonts to large and bold so I could read them. Now it doesn't work because of Firefox "upgrades". There really should be an easier way to change fonts, both sizes and colors, because not everyone is 20 years old with great eyesight. Is there a fairly easy way to do this? I'll even take a not-so-easy way if it works.

BTW, I've used "Firefox Colors" and it does make it a bit easier, but I really need to be able to increase the size of the text AND bold it.

How to automatically select (jump to) tab sent (shared) from another device on Firefox Sync account

Hello,

I use Firefox on a few devices, one of them being Mac connected to a projector. When I share tabs (url) from any device to the Mac, it receives it, loads it on a new tab to the right of the active tab, but it doesn't switch to it automatically. The tab shows a blue dot until I manually click on it.

Is there a way to auto switch the tab that was just received?

This is not related to the "When I Open a Link in a New Tab, Switch to it Immediately" option in preferences, which only changes the behavior of links opened on the same machine, but not the ones sent from another device.

I want to achieve this mainly to automatically play YouTube videos on the projector, but also other pages that I would like to see on the big screen without having to reach the mouse on the mac.

I guess this should be supported natively, but looking at the about:config I couldn't find anything obvious. I only wan to use third party extensions as a last option.

Cheers! Airton

Hello, I link many items to Pinterest from my page. In the past, when I clicked the Pinterest button, the new window would open up in normal mode. For some reason, now when I click it, it opens Normal (I guess), but it's a very small window. I've tried to resize it so it opens that way next time, but nothing saves. Do any of you have suggestions on how I can fix that? It's a pain having to resize the window every time. Thanks so much.

As said in the subject header, my facebook chat windows are missing an important part of their usual selves. There are no buttons on the top of the window, and most importantly, I basically cannot close those windows :) In the picture, the left side is Facebook on Mozilla, and the right side is Facebook on MS Edge (had no other option, and couldn't bother to install Chrome).

If anyone can help, I'd greatly appreciate it!

I have a subscription to the NY Times and have been using their archives which they call TimesMachine. Until yesterday it worked fine. Now when I type in a specific date the "I'm thinking" screen comes up and then it hangs. This does not occur when I'm using Chrome. I just re-did Firefox but it didn't help.

For the past three weeks I've been having a problem with my Hotmail messages not loading on my desktop computer. (I have no issues with a laptop, iPhone, or iPad.) Each time I clear the cache, which solves the problem, but it's gotten so bad that I'm clearing it every couple of days...and I'm getting tired of re-entering all my passwords :-).

The only extensions I have are 1Password, Facebook Container, and uBlock Origin.

Any suggestions?
