Hello,

I'm posting because I found nothing on the internet about this.

When I want to drag and drop a file from Firefox (for example : an image) to my desktop, the file always get placed somewhere decided by Firefox instead of the place I wanted.

Example : I want to drag and drop an image from Firefox on the bottom left of my screen, and it gets placed on the top right.

This is really annoying because Firefox always decide a different place to put the file, and I always lose time looking for the file on my desktop.

This is the only application that I use that does this.

Is this possible to fix ?

Thank you for helping !

Recently, I have been blocked from visiting certain websites by Firefox, which are perfectly fine websites. I have to close out of Firefox and use Safari to connect to these websites. One of the websites is my City of San Bruno website: https://www.onlinebiller.com/sanbruno/index.html.

This is just one of several websites in which I'm told the website there is a potential security issue. Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue: I copy and pasted the warning below: "Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.onlinebiller.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? www.onlinebiller.com 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.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I contacted the City of San Bruno and was told it's a browser problem. As I mentioned above I can connect to these sites through Safari with no problem.

Thank You for any explanation/assistance on how to connect to these websites using Firefox.

Hi,

I need to get the osx browser version 83.1.0, but I can't download it. Only 83.0.0. Or I need version 83.0.0 for android, I have 83.1.0

I'm runing a self hosted sync server and thats why I need compatible version, otherwise it won't sync.

For testing I installed on both device the beta version, and it worked there. I don't want to use beta, it was just to see if all settings are correct.

Thanks for the help!

I'm using macOS 11.0.1, with Automatic theme-switching enabled in System Preferences. In the evening, when the theme switches to Dark mode, Firefox's theme changes to Dark also. If I don't shut down my Mac, Firefox's theme will be Light in the morning, which is normal. However, if I shutdown my Mac completely in the evening and turn it back on the next morning, Firefox's theme keeps the last state (Dark) also my system's theme changes to Light. The only workaround is to change my Mac's theme to Dark/Light only, and change it back to Auto again.

Hello, I've had the problem for a while now, and finally decided to do something about it. When I am visiting certain websites the fonts for the headlines are all messed up. I attached two images of the official website of berlin, one opened with firefox, one opened with safari. You can see that the font problem is primarily applying to headlines. Since this doesn't happen on every website, I was thinking this could be due to firefox not being able to handle one certain font. You will also notice, that firefox doesn't display german letters such as ä, ö and ü.

I have already tried playing around with the performance settings, and my language is set to german. I am thankful for every new idea.

Cheers

This is incredibly annoying.

Any idea what's happening, and how I can make it work in FF?
