Currently when dragging and dropping a bookmark (or folder) in the Library holding the Option key causes a plus badge to appear, and a curved arrow badge appears while holding the Option+Command key. What is this about? How do these relate to a copy/paste action? I have not been able to find documentation on this.

  • Firefox v 76.0

With a recent Mac OS update, I lost the ability to overlay the PiP over a remote connection screen. I can get the PiP to stay on the screen as long as I do not release the left mouse, but when I release it, it disappears like the remote connection screen is taking priority over the PIP.

I apologize if this has already been brought up.

It seems that the browser has access to a list of my media devices, without needing any special permissions. On Am I Unique, they can grab the unique ID of my builtin macbook camera & microphone. I believe the culprit is MediaDevices.enumerateDevices(). I do have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to True.

Perhaps you could put it behind a permission request, like MediaDevices.getUserMedia()?

Thank you for your time.

Greetings. Each time I open Firefox 76.0.1 on my iMAC OS 10.14.6 I have to listen a minute or so to frog calls. The problem began after I visited this page, which is the source of the sound: http://www.californiaherps.com/frogs/pages/p.regilla.sounds.html. To try to fix this, I've deleted all cookies and long ago closed the page with the frog call on it. Unfortunately, I sent this URL to a friend who subsequently developed the same problem. She is on a different browser, I think Chrome, and has Microsoft OS.

MalwareBytes can detect no problem with my system. How do I rid my Firefox of these frog calls? This does not happen when I open Safari or Chrome but I like using Firefox better.

Thanks in advance for your help, Susan

In Firefox on YouTube, if I go full screen, one thing is that it doesn't create a new desktop like real Firefox full screen does, it just goes full screen on that desktop. The other thing is that when I am on dual monitors, and that full screen Firefox video is in focus, the menu bar on the other screen is not there.

Does anyone else have this issue?

I use Firefox for everything except full screen video (and sometimes for work) for this reason.

The recent updates of Cliqz and Firefox blocked or corrupted downloaded software updates on my Mac and appended a .part to end of downloaded files, hence Apple installer could not open ANY download. Cliqz was my primary browser and was affected as was Firefox when I made it the primary browser. Only after making Safari the primary browser could I download and open updates to my third party apps and use Apple installer. I would like to know what the recent Cliqz and Firefox updates did to cause this problem, and when the software flaw will be fixed? The .part issues seem to be associated with these two browsers and I don't know why? I initially focused on Comcast but it was not the source of the problem. If anyone has has insight into this issue I would like your comments please.

I am currently using two separate profiles for Firefox browser - one personal and one for work. I have both open at all times on one machine. When I click on a link from Slack (for work), it always opens in my personal Firefox browser which it usually cannot open since I need to be logged into my work account.

How do I set it up so that the link will open in the profile that was most recently used vs the default profile?

I recently installed Firefox on a Mac and migrated from Brave. Everything is fine, some things better, but I am having issues with the trackpad. In particular:

1. Jump to click in scrollbar doesn't work on most pages. Oddly, it works on pages like about:config and other Firefox internal pages.

2. I cannot make two finger page swipe between pages. Three finger swipe does but this causes issues for me in other applications. The two or three finger swipe option doesn't work.

This does not happen with Brave, Chrome, and Safari.

Things I have tried:

Safe mode. Reset SMC and PRAM. Uncheck and recheck boxes in the Trackpad System Preferences. New profile.

MacOS 10.14.6 Firefox 77.0.1

bold textHi, I love pinned tab functionality. I use them to keep open pages that I often need to go back (mail / social / monitoring etc). I'd like to configure a pinned tab to *never* navigate to a different url, is this possibile?

A pinned tab navigates to a different URL when: - the tab is selected and I click on a link on a different app. ( for example Outlook) - I type a new URL on the address bar.

I would like to configure Firefox to always use a new tab in these 2 cases. Similar to what happens when I click on a bookmark link.

thanks!

I have been using Safari on MacOS for a long time, but for various reasons decided to switch to Firefox now. The problem I have is that I can not find a way to open videos (e.g. YouTube) in full screen in a separate "space", so that I could use other tabs of firefox, while having a video in full screen. At first I couldn't even open Firefox in the native full screen on Mac, so it never opened in a separate space, but I fixed it in about:config by switching full-screen:macos-native-full-screen to true. Now when I go into full screen the entire browser goes into a separate space. Is it possible to keep Firefox on one space and open full screen video in another space?

I saw some discussion about it back from 2019, but no useful info there.

Since I've installed the last firefox version 77.0.1 I haven't been able to type umlauts using my italian keyboard. Any other application on my mac still allows me to type umlauts by holding the "u" and then typing the letter, like I always did. Firefox used to allow the same shortcut, but since the last version it doesn't work anymore. Anybody has an idea why that might be?

The previous FF forum link is "what is ec2-52-27-162-24.us-west-2.compute.amazonaws.com" The new values after performing a clear of cache is as follows
