Hi! Have just changed primary email address on my Firefox account. When I open Firefox Monitor it now only shows this new primary email address as being monitored. Previously there were four other email addresses being monitored - they appear to have been removed as a result of changing the primary email address... Clearly this is not a major issue and the email addresses in question can again be added, but just wondering about the logic in doing this, as all other data of my account remains unchanged. Regards, Colin

The background color of the button that pops up in Firefox to approve downloading a file turned White making the text in the button impossible to see. I've looked in Preferences and cannot find anything that controls the color of this button. I've also looked in the preferences for my computer. This is happening on my Macbook Air M1 with Big Sur. Anyone know how to control this color?

I have been using firefox for a while now mainly because the power and memory use is much lower than Chrome. However, the other day I was using firefox and had 1 google doc tab open when my Mac have me a warning that it was out of memory. The main user of memory was Firefox, using 60 gb of memory, despite the fact that my laptop only has 8 gb of memory. I didnt get a picture as my laptop crashed soon after. Is this a common issue and what can i do to resolve it?

Hi!

As the Header says. Regulary I work with my Macbook Air (latest generation) connected to an external monitor, also with external mouse and keyboard, Macbook Air is closed. When I disconnect the USBC-Hub from my Macbook, open it und want to proceed, there is a 80% chance that Firefox freezed. There is no error message, sometimes I still hear some youtube video playing, but I can not interact with Firefox any more, so I have to close it and restart. This is really annoying as I have to reopen all of my tabs again, sign in and stuff.

Do you have an idea how to fix this?

Best regards Jonas

So I've disabled Firefox updates because of the personal preferences. It keeps nagging me every day with the modal to update. How do I disable this annoying useless feature?

Firefox 85.0 on mac os.

I've tried searching "about:config" for all preferences that contain "update" and look like timers and changed the timestamps to something in the far future. Still no dice, the update dialog keeps appearing every day like clockwork.

Hi!

I am on macOS Catalina and am trying to change the copy-paste combination on my keyboard from Command+C and Command+V to Control+C and Control+V, respectively.

Under Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts, I already have a copy-paste setting for 'All Applications', and it works on ALL applications I tested with (Google Chrome, Safari, Telegram, terminal emulators, etc.), EXCEPT on Firefox.

So then I tried to add a custom setting for Firefox.app. Copy works: I can CTRL+C in a firefox page and CTRL+V on another app. BUT CTRL+V does not work in Firefox itself -- the previous shortcut Command+V is what still works.

What should I do so that:

  1. Numbered list itemFirefox will use the app shortcuts for 'All Applications' instead of having its own configuration (less important)
  2. Bulleted list itemCTRL+V would work on Firefox? (more important)

My Firefox version is 85.0.2

Thanks in advance.

++

Edit, additional info:

I followed the list of valid command names at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly?redirectslug=Keyboard+shortcuts&redirectlocale=en-US#w_bookmarks. Adding some of them to 'App Shortcut' works (such as New Tab, Close Tab, and Bookmark This Page), and some of them don't (such as Find in This Page and Find in This Page).

OK, I've selected automatic updates for Firefox. MacBook Air. So, I need to restart in order for the update to INSTALL. I can't just close and re-open Firefox to get the update. After I restarted, Youtube would not play. AGAIN. This happens with EVERY update. So, following instructions from an entry on the web, I erased my history. OK, now Youtube plays. But I notice I've lost my bookmarks in the process. I've mentioned this before. What's the secret to getting you experts to pay attention to this annoying, recurring thing? I would not have lost my bookmarks if I did not have to erase my history. Why can't updates be provided that will allow me to play youtube and KEEP my bookmarks--- like on every other day??? Thank you.

I wanted to ask whether I can still use Enhanced Tracking Protection while still using Facebook Container and Multi-Account Containers. It looks like the option is not showing up in the preferences. Does use of ETF undermine using the other two? Which one is better to use? I don't want to lose the function of Facebook Container to block Facebook trackers from all the websites, but I also want other websites to be kept in separate containers as well.
