The most recent Firefox for iOS is causing postage to NOT PRINT PROPERLY.... both through eBay postage as well as Pirateship.

When I try to print same label from a PC laptop, it prints fine.

I'm primarily on a MAC, and do a lot of postage, so it would be nice if there was a fix.... or workaround other than using a PC...

Thoughts?

iMac does not bring up windows from previous sessions unless I ignore the request to close tabs and, instead Force Quir Firefox

I have a 2017 iMac, and have recently updated the OS to Monterrey, version 12.5. I believe I was on Big Sur before that.

Now, although when I start my iMac's Shut Down feature, I specify that current open windows shd be reopened, when I start up the Mac again, the Shut Down function asks me if it is OK to close the open Firefox tabs. If I remember correctly, doing that results in all those tabs being lost, and none of them appear when I reopen the Mac.

Under some circumstances that I can't remember enough to describe, the gMail windows do come up, and their contents are shown on the tabs, but are lost when I open the tabs -- instead each window changes to request a new login to gMail.

The only way I can get the old windows to be retained is to not agree that the tabs be closed and to do a Force Quit on Firefox.

I am using a very old version of Firefox (02.2 G4bit (? I think)), but under Big Sur, the exact windows were retained.

Here are my "About This Mac," and "About Firefox" displays. I don't know how to find similar info on gMail.

Dear Mozilla community, I was re-ordering the main tabs for daily use. The little blue line that indicates a move-change was about to show up when my finger slipped from the Apple Magic trackpad. The TAB that I use for dissertation work (PHD) disappeared. Thinking that it simply was transferred to the my Bookmarks, I checked there. No joy. I also checked to the bookmark menu TAB for my university teaching work. Not there either? Hmm. I searched for the Bookmark (PHD) and I am not able to locate it.

Any suggestions?

I would be most grateful.

Sincerely, AM

Hi, I'm wanting to upgrade my Mac OS. Will all my Firefox data be retained including my saved sessions? Will opening Firefox have everything just like it was before the update, so that the last current session will open up with all the previously open tabs?

Last night, I noticed that the usual Dock icon for Firefox developer Edition had changed from Blue Fox to what looked like the App Store brush/pencil triangle. I restarted but it persisted. Removed the application and re-downloaded and re-installed, but same issue. I then noticed that all the Tools -> Web Developer tools had gone from the menu. Likewise, doing Firefox -> About inserted 'about:preferences' in the search bar, but nothing else happened. Tried launching the settings from the right side hamburger menu, again nothing happened.

Read around a bit, and deleted one of two profiles from ~/Library/ApplicationSupport/..., then tried re-install and restart the Developer Edition, but that complained that a profile was missing. Restored the profile I deleted, but same problem as before.

I'm stumped. Can anyone help with this one please? I'm on Mac, latest version of Mojave.

Thanks

Hi I have had my firefox setup so that it didn't show the urls drop down with sites I last visited so people didn't see what I looked at so I could be private. Yet this "Top Sites" checkbox was added recently and caused my url bar to show past sites visited. I find this a privacy violation.

Hi, firefox browser (using it on a macbook, the version is up to date) will no longer load the css/js on a site that i use frequently. It's not a problem on the side of the site, as it works fine on chrome and safari (and even on my mobile ios firefox browser). After troubleshooting a bit (deleting and redownloading the browser/removing all addons/ensuring that the page style isn't set to 'no style'/deleting the cache/adding it as an exception to enhanced tracking protection/enabling 'security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true in advanced configuration), and exploring help articles of a similar nature, I've determined that it most likely won't load the stylesheet because the site has an unsecured connection. This is a site that I use frequently and I trust enough to continue using with an unsecure connection, but I've been unable to get Firefox to recognize it as an exception in a way that will allow me to use the site in its full capacity.

I put my applications in SubFolders inside Applications folder. Firefox was in one of them. Each time I quit it, my preferences settings were lost, and I had to reconnect to my Firefox account. Since I put Firefox in Applications folder (not in a subfolder) it works. I think it should work even in a subfolder.

One of my computers a Mid 2014 MacBook Pro laptop runs Safari fine with MAcOS 10.15.6 , but since the update will no longer connect to Firefox or Chrome browsers.

A newer desktop iMac 2019 has completed the Update and has no problems running the most uptodate versions of Safari 13.1.2, Firefox 79.0 , or Chrome ( 84.0.4147.135 ). I tried re-installing the Firefox and Chrome programs , but no success.

Any suggestions on how to correct. Browser connectivity problem. (My network settings are identical on both computers )

I just enabled FireFox sync, but for some reason I can't seem to get the Bitwarden Extension nor my DuckDuckGo Extension to show up in the top toolbar (top right) like it does on my other computer.

My 2 extensions are installed and running, so not sure why they don't show "up top"

Any help greatly appreciated.
