The Firefox site and Addons site doesn't think I have Firefox installed AND that my requiremnets are not met.

Hi there,

So I went the the Firefox Addons site to download a few things and I noticed that it doesn't think that I have Firefox installed. Any add on I try to download I get the "ONLY WITH FIREFOX - DOWNLOAD FIREFOX NOW" button.

Funny thing is that I' using Firefox as a browser already.

So for fun I clicked on the download button which takes me to the Firefox main site page - which shows me a message that states "My system doesn’t meet the requirements to run Firefox".

I am really confused. I am already running Firefox (current version) and it thinks that my system doesn't meet the requirements. I am running MacOS High Sierra Version 10.13.6

So I can't download any add-ons or re-download Firefox if I wanted to. Could anyone point me in a direction as to what the issue might be as I'm lost.

Thanks

When viewing long (20+ pages) documents, trying to find any text searches some of the pages (the ones around the one currently being displayed), and not the whole document.

I assume this is problably a regression caused by trying to save memory too aggresively.

Is anyone else experiencing this? Any way to solve it?

YouTube HTML5 1080p@60fps videos in full screen are choppy, independently if the hardware acceleration is turned on or off. I've tried clean profile, I've tried these methods: https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/amy7j6/its_been_years_since_firefox_has_stutters_on/efpuhc5/ Nothing works. How can I fix this?

That is not a hardware issue - I have no problems with watching 1440p@60fps videos in chromium.

Hey There, I'm running firefox 70, but because I am a web developer and was troubleshooting someone who was running an old version (40), I briefly opened that version. Now when I open up my regular firefox 70 again, all my extensions are disabled.

The problem is, I don't see any way of enabling those extensions again, there is no option for that anywhere. Installing one of them again seems to have fixed it, but I'd rather not do that for each of them (there are a lot of them, and I'm afraid to lose data)

Is there a way to enable those addons again?

I take a lot of newsletter and I'm finding FF more and more unreliable in opening links associated with newsletter services like MailChimp, Click1, or Constant Contact.

Hi, I recently have been unable to login anymore to a (Canadian) gov. website that I have regularly used. I've messed with settings & seem worse off now. I've also tried to ensure that Javascript is enabled but am still getting an error message that it's not. Currently I've messed with all sorts of cookie/tracker settings and have no idea what I'm doing. Thanks!

I have -lots- of toolbar bookmarks. I remove all the text from bookmarks, leaving just the icons so takes less space. I depend on the site's icon to identify bookmarks, but many sites, all with their own custom icons, refuse to use it, opting instead for the default "globe" thing. I want to fix that, but despite many searches I find no help on the web. This problem has continued through many Firefox updates, including the most recent.

 So, how do I force bookmarks to use the unique, site-specific icons? For example, Reddit.

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to <this URL> because this website requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it? <this URL> has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

Firefox does not allow me to print downloaded and possibly other files. It does not bring up TWINUI, and maybe this is the reason. Using microsoft explorer, TWINUI appears, and printing works fine for the same files. How do I fix this problem. This is a fairly new problem and I only wish that when software works, it does not need software weenies messing with it!!!
