I did try to sign up for Firefox on a Mac. I saw the email with a confirmation code that indicated will expire in 15 min. But I saw it over 24 hours after it was sent because I didn't check the mail that day. I didn't address the issue because of the expiration.

Today I got an email: {Welcome to Firefox! A few days ago you created a Firefox account, but never confirmed it. Please confirm your account in the next 15 days or it will be automatically deleted. Don’t miss out on the browser that puts you and your privacy first.}

Of course I confirmed it, and I don't know if that was stupid or not. What I'm asking: is this a confirmation to use Firefox on the Mac (all updates complete). Thanks a bunch.

I have the exact same issue as the following users, and have yet to find a solution to the problem. "In MacOS Big Sur 11.1 on my MacBook, I have set MacOS to automatically switch between Light Mode and Dark Mode. But I notice that Firefox does not handle this well. When I have used my MacBook Dark Mode and switch back to Light Mode, Firefox still hangs in Dark Mode. The only way to solve this is to choose Light Mode in System Preferences instead of automatic."

Hello there! I have a strange issue where only the URL changes when I press the back button, it seems to happen randomly, but it isn't only happening to me, I was in a discord call yesterday when I saw it happen for my friend too. See attached gif for an example. Any idea what could cause this, or how to fix it? I haven't found any other threads about this, but I haven't looked very hard.

Example problems when handling PDFs, despite having "ask me what to do" or whatever set in preferences:

"Open in browser" results in a copy being saved to downloads folder, with random string filename.

"Open in [locally installed pdf viewer]" results in a copy being saved to downloads folder, with random string filename.

Quickbooks can't show receipt or document previews in the little pane. It insists on downloading it.

Gmail, Proton, and probably other email services can't render previews; same behaviour as qb.

How to fix, please? I don't even know how to properly articulate this problem, but it means half my browsing can't be done in firefox. Very frustrating.

afternoon, my keyboard is missing several keys so please bear with me. I have been having issues opening Tumblr in firefox for about a month now. I have been clearing my cache, i deleted all of my browser history and cookies to the beginning of time, and tumblr still hangs whenever i open it, going unresponsive until I forcequit from the task manager. sometimes, if I grab the scrollbar and get it away from the top of the page before it hangs, itll let me browse no issue, but most of the time it takes about 2 seconds to become hanging/unresponsive. I have not experienced this issue on any other site with the frequency that Tumblr experiences, and I cannot find any help desk information about a problem like this. I would really like to avoid moving to a different browser but its getting kind of insane how hard it is to live around it. if I have music/video going in the background, it will continue to play while Im forced to hang on tumblr, until I forcequit.

Everytime I try to close my Firefox browser window, it just stops. There are multiple processes taking in excess of 200 or 300K in memory that seem to be causing the problem. I have to manually end the process just to close Firefox, and it is quite annoying.

I just checked, my Firefox is up to date. Yesterday I deleted and re-installed Firefox, but it's still doing the same thing.

This is kind of driving me nuts to be honest. I have Chrome, Opera, and Edge also installed on my computer so I'm ready to jetisson Firefox but thought I'd see what the community has to say first.

Hi!

I would like to record sound from Firefox on Linux. However, every time sound stops playing(i.e. a video is paused), the sound channel disappears, and when the sound resumes playing, a new sound channel is created. This makes it near impossible to consistently record sound, since all the sound connections disappear along with the sound channel, and they have to be reconnected manually.

Is there a way to force Firefox to always use a single sound channel for everything, or create a sound channel for every tab, regardless of whether sound is actually playing?

I am using Firefox 107.0-1 on Arch Linux 6.0.9-arch1-1, with pipewire 1:0.3.60-3.

Thanks in advance, GOBLIN

When I snap Firefox to one side of the screen to fill half my monitor, I'm presented with so much padding that there is in fact more screen estate reserved for nothing than there is for tabs. Is this supposed to be normal behavior? I'm using a 4K laptop monitor with 300% scaling, which gave me no wasted space issues in the past.

I am having problems connecting with nearly all websites at times with Firefox. Often, but not always, getting the browser to reload will complete the connection. Especially problematic are ads that appear from Google search; the links almost never will connect! This is whether I run NordVPN or not.

Using the Chrome browser exhibits none of these problems....but I'm a Firefox guy for many years now.

This all started when I upgraded the motherboard/cpu last year to an ASUS Prime Z590 and i7 cpu. The onboard Intel LAN has latest driver. All other drivers are current.

The other two pc's on my home network have no problems with Firefox at all.

This has been going on too long, and frankly I'm stumped. This happened right out of the box after installing the new mobo, no add ins or themes, just plain jane Firefox.

I'm currently running two add ins, an App to disable WebRTC, and the Dark Reader. Disabling these makes no difference in connectivity problems. Help much appreciated.
