Most of the time but not all of the time Firefox appears to be missing all menus, but it seems that it has actually just nulled all the strings. The image shows the problem. This seems to be the case 100% if I click a link from email. Starting a new window does show the menu. I've tried the reset menu procedures I have found with no effect.

This is MacOS Catalina. I don't recall this happening prior to upgrading to Catalina.

I backed up my laptop's profile on Dec 3. I've since made changes to bookmarks and such on that system, but can no longer access to the computer. So I'm going to copy the backed up profile to a new computer.

Question: a) Will sync work from the profile data and saved credentials copied to the new computer? b) Will sync update the new computer with the changes that had been made on the old computer since Dec 3?

I am using FF 72.0.2 (64-bit) on an iMac running: macOS High Sierra (10.13.6). My iMac is a mid 2011 machine w 20GB of RAM with an internal 1TB SSD.

CNET runs with the Disqus commenting engine I believe. But the menus and such don't load properly, I cannot run searches, or login, and when I press the comments button at the end of an article, I never get the window panel on the right hand side of the page. I tried clearing my cache, removing all downloaded files, and no change in behavior.

Image of the product, along with options for it (i.e. description, price, quantity, etc), do not display where they normally would (see screen shot). Essentially an entire section at the top of the product page is missing. You can also see in the screen shot that in the right pane, where a list of items in my Amazon shopping cart should be, is also empty. Works fine in Private Browsing mode. Also works fine in Chrome and Safari. I don't have any add-ons installed. Cookies and history have been cleared.

This is a brand new FF installation on a brand new Mac book Pro. Trying desperately to switch from Chrome to FF, but seems Mozilla doesn't want me.

Anyone have any ideas?

I am old and non-technical. I have manged over the years to turn off google search suggestions successfully in the past but, whatever I do my new computer running Windows 10 refuses to oblige. I have turned off suggestions in privacy and made the simple alteration in about:config to no avail. My homepage is google search engine and the I type my sserach in the google engine not in in any URL bar - if that makes sense. I have searched for possible resloutions in the user forum but they either tell me to turn off what I have already turned off or refer me to a Linux mint solution which even if I understood I feel is inappropriate. Unless i have a solution I think I will be forced to use chrome, safari or whatever. The add=ons that i use and my settings all seem to work in my previous computer Help please.

Fortinet (or Forticloud) all of a sudden started a couple weeks ago to deny my access to many websites when I click on the link in an article, etc. Never happened before. When I contacted Fortinet, they said maybe Firefox added this to my account. I prefer to delete this security measure. Does anyone know how? Thanks.

Using IE, I can import certificates and set up a security device once. Then when a new user logs onto that computer, their profile already has those certificates and security device set up. I want to do this in Firefox.

Right now, what I'm doing is copying the cert9.db and pkcs.txt files to a central location. Then, when a new user logs in, and they get a new Firefox profile, I copy those files to the new profile, overwriting what's already there. This is working, but it's still too much for non-computer users, and I can't always be there to do it.

I'd like to be able to set it up on the computer, in like an admin mode or something, and then users can come and go as they please, and I never have to worry about it again.

After updating FF to v71 (Mac) my tabs are once again at the top of the window, instead of under the urlbar and bookmarks toolbar. Anyone have a new fix for this?

I don't see why Mozilla just can't let people put the tabs where they want and be done with it. Stuff like this used to be one of the great appeals and strengths of FF. It just feels like, which each new update, FF loses more and more of its soul.

I bought a tablet just for it to be not what I wanted. I see it listed in my old tablet's sync history 5+ days after and am baffled. I changed my password so it doesn't have access in the future but it's in my Firefox History even when I select it to hide it. It's not in my account anymore but it's in my history. Am I freaking out too much or is this normal since it could vanish on its own?

I have the Australian English dictionary installed, but all web pages keep defaulting to the US English version. I have to keep right clicking and changing the dictionary.

I've looked in about:addons - dictionaries, but only the Australian one is listed.

Does anyone know how to set a default dictionary for all time, or delete the US English dictionary?

Thanks.

I am trying to enable Two-step authentication. I scan the QR code, enter the code, save the recovery codes and enter one. The green bar at the time says I have successfully enabled two-step authentication, but when clicking Refresh Status, it remains disabled.

I tried disabling add-ons and in a private window without success, I even tried deleting the account and trying again with a different email address. When I check the network tab I can see a request to "https://api.accounts.firefox.com/v1/session/verify/totp" is returning "{"success":false}".

It's an intermittent issue but very frequent and annoying, and I think it is related to the firefox's over sensitivity to touch pad gestures. I have experienced many times whenever I intend to do a two finger scroll, the browser interprets it as adjusting zoom(which is via two finger pinch). It can't be the issue of my touchpad device / driver issue because pinch zoom and two finger scroll has worked perfectly on other browsers and apps. I haven't encountered a single case where an app interpreted my two finger scroll as a zoom action since the moment i bought this laptop. I believe it has something to do with firefox.
