I go to a website and need to upload a file. I click the upload file button on the web page and the pop up will not appear. I've done every option imaginable for Pop-ups to no avail.

What security setting am I missing?

It works in chrome which I prefer not to use but I suppose I'll make the switch if I have to.

Regards,

Websites constantly refuse to let me login using Firefox browser, but works on other browsers

I was not able to log into my bank account website tonight, because it kept giving me an error saying 'Feature temporarily unavailable' every time I tried. (attached) I contacted the bank Support, and they told me to clear the cache and try again, but that did not help either. I was able to get into my account using Chrome browser, but this is a constant thing with Firefox, that websites will not work properly for one reason or another, and I have to open a different browser to be able to complete my objectives. Firefox consistently complains about permissions to open websites that were working fine just this morning. Almost like it is random, or something. As well, trying to use online chat in Firefox, is a joke, and I almost religiously have to go to a different browser to chat with anybody online. I have noticed that, for around the last year or so, Firefox browser has become less and less useful,and more and more tedious to use, which is leading me to think about changing my default browser to one that is more reliable. I have been using Firefox, as my browser for many years now, and hope that it can be corrected somehow, because I do not want to switch to a different browser truthfully. I do have addons, mainly ad blockers, but if I remove all addons, the same problems remain. Am I going to have to switch to a different browser that is more consistent, if I want to be able to have reliable internet usage, until you guys get your collective acts together, or what??

MacBook Pro, Mojave 10.14.3; Recently updated Firefox to 83.0, and now my fonts on other sites are messed up (particularly Yahoo mail; See screen shot). I've tried re-starting with add-ons disabled and it does fix the problem, but I need my add-ons enabled. I also tried a Firefox refresh, but still does not fix the problem. I've also tried checking and unchecking the box "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above," in Firefox preferences, but that doesn't help either. Hopefully someone has figured out how to fix this?

TIA - Beth

This link use to show the image itself to allow me to do some customization and so forth. But lately it keeps saying connection not secure and images aren't showing. No matter what method I try, nothing works to get this link back to what it use to be. Someone help me fix this.

Hi all. I have been looking for some time for an extension or method that will help me sort the extensions that end up in the Overflow Menu. It becomes impossible to find anything with them all shoved in there with no rhyme or reason, and I def do not want to have to put them in alpha order (or maintain them that way).

Hi,

I have been designing a Hikvision CCTV system and bumped into a problem. Mac users cannot use a browser to access all the various controls and settings as Hikvision rely upon ActiveX, which is old and a security risk. I am informed that this problem exists in the whole CCTV industry! I am advised that Hikvision will eventually dump ActiveX in favour of HTML5, but this seems to require a new operating system!

I think it's incredible that a whole industry should build itself upon one piece of legacy. Surely browsers would be the way to go. That way online acccess to a CCTV system would be OS independent. Does onyone have some thoughts on this?

Why not implement an HTML5 plugin?

I'm no expert, but have been around computer tech since the early 1980s.

Comments/observations much appreciated.

Regards Michael

Firefox just updated itself on my mac today (Catalina) and wiped out every single thing I had: bookmarks, passwords, history, etc. I went ahead and created a new account for the email address I used before (at least I thought I'd set up an email address and logged into firefox with it), and I can see an old firefox profile folder but I can't get Firefox to register the old information and pick up the bookmarks and stuff. Also, every time I open a new Firefox window I have to sign in to my account ALL OVER AGAIN. It's like firefox can't retain a session. What's up? How do I fix this?? Help, please.

Better fix for question mark boxes in Firefox ?

This fixed my problem with question mark boxes (which I have seen, then not seen, then seen again over versions of FF on a Mac): https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1178462

But the answer is 3 years old and nearly 30 FF versions ago, and furthermore requires lowering security. Is there a newer, better solution for fixing the problem with seeing question mark boxes instead of glyphs for certain fonts? (And one that doesn't require me to constantly toggle "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of your selections above" in Preferences, which only works sometimes anyway.)

Hello,unfortunately I am not the most computer savvy person (sorry). I have been experiencing a few problems with Firefox over the last month or so. I currently use a Mac desktop and a Macbook and they sync together. I keep Firefox up to date as updates become available. My Macbook is fine but on my desktop I frequently have to Force Quit the application. In addition, I cannot clear my browsing history, cannot add a new bookmark nor able to delete a bookmark. I thought at first that maybe a bookmark I added may have caused a problem (?) on my desktop but the problem did not transfer over to my laptop upon syncing. I was thinking of uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it but I wanted to get an expert opinion. Is there a fix for this problem, have I done something wrong? As well, in your opinion are ad blocking applications such as 'ADBLOCK' or 'U BLOCK ORIGIN' compatible with Firefox / Apple Mac? Thank you in advance for any assistance you can give me, and thank you for continually delivering a superior browser!

The second time I lost all my data(200 tabs, bookmark panel, pws, addons). My steps: 1. Sync all data into 1 firefox account from 1 device 2. Reinstall my OS on the same device. 3. Connecting back by logging in and pressing the sync button and... Blah! I see nothing. No synced tabs, no bookmark panel. At the same time I did this kinda operation with having connected 1 account to 2 virtual devices(1 - real OS, 2 - Virtualbox). So could you please explain how Firefox Sync works? Is there a way to use sync account as a keeper for tabs and bookmark panel without using 2 devices? Or other ways? Thanks!
