I'm using macos 12.5

Firefox will not open any windows.

When I try to open Firefox by clicking on the dock icon, nothing happens.

If I right-click the dock icon and select 'Show All Windows", a message takes over my screen. The message says "No Available Windows".

I manually deleted the caching directory in my homedir.

I then deleted Firefox, downloaded the latest version and installed it.

Attempting to open it fails again. The same symptom recurs.

I'm running the latest version - I downloaded it about 20 minutes ago. But I can't find the version number because the application won't actually open.

Hello dear Mozilla community!

I've faced an issue with search engines configuration for Firefox on macOS. I'm doing the following:

  1. Removing all but one One-Click Search Engines, leaving only one engine in the list (currently my preference is DuckDuckGo): https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-41-395a2a.png or https://imgur.com/DKqvzZ9
  2. When I type search request in the address bar I'm seeing nice and clean search suggestions from Search Provider of my choice: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-13-a8d46c.png or https://imgur.com/a/slivHlF
  3. Close Firefox
  4. (not sure what other conditions needed)
  5. Open Firefox
  6. When typing search request in the address bar I see that Amazon and Ebay options are back and a suggestion line "This time, search with ..." as added by firefox: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-02-4a25db.png or https://imgur.com/vjq0NCf
  7. In the preference I see that those two searches (Ebay and Amazon) were automatically re-added to One-Click Search Engines: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2020-11-17-04-32-23-91dd1d.png or https://imgur.com/ibnlzLS

That issue is happening to me across different versions of firefox and isn't new. I've been seeing it for a few month hoping that to resolve in a newer versions. But as of right now I'm on 82.0.3 (64-bit) and the issue is still there.

It's a bit annoying as I have to my preferences literally every time I need to restart Firefox (which is especially annoying to do right after restarting FF to switch to a newer version).

Any suggestions and help is welcome!

Best regards, Serhii.

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

Every so often when I am browsing and go onto a website the text becomes all jumbled as if it can't read the font properly. This has only started happening recently. It definitely seems to be a font issue as when I copy the text and paste it into a document it reads perfectly and if I close the browser then open it again the text is back to normal. It seems to happen after I've been using the browser for a while.

Hello,

I have some serious problem with firefox. I spent all day to find the solution but i falied.

I was trying all the configurations from this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1171999

gfx.color_management.mode: 0, 1, 2 gfx.color_management.enablev4: ture, false gfx.color_management.rendering_intent; -1, 0, 1, 3

Each one of them combined with other. All failed.

What is the problem. I have a new iMac with external monitor (apple thunderbolt display).

One the iMac screen everything is ok but on the external monitor, color in firefox is totally different than other browsers and different than iMac.

Here is the example of code i use for test. It's not image. Just clear CSS code: https://www.dropbox.com/s/znnuxq1g75169g8/css.png?dl=0

Here is the screenshot from iMac All 3 browsers have the same color: https://www.dropbox.com/s/3nrkw6ljzwo32kn/imac.png?dl=0

And here on external monitor firefox show different color. https://www.dropbox.com/s/c4vl4tlxmech8o8/external.png?dl=0

Firefox is my main browser and i don't want to change it just becasue the color is not working properly. But because i'm the designer i need to have almost the same color on my both screens in browser.

Overall both monitors are ok. The problem only exist in Firefox. All other apps are ok. Figma or Photoshop work fine, both screens have the same color. But firefox not.

I'm using also Firefox Developer Edition and there is the same problem.

Are there any more options i can check before i will change browser?

Thanks, Przemek

I have to enter my modem's IP address into the navigation bar, but for some reason keeps converting to a google search. I enter: 192.168. 0.1. when I press return: https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=192.168.+0.1. I have gone through all my settings, and cannot find a way out of this! common sense would say that when I added the second "Search" bar next to the "Navigation/Search" bar, the search function would not apply anymore to the Navigation bar. Anyways, Please help if possible.... I'm frustrated!

I click control+F but this function does not work on all sites and can't find matches even though I'm sure that word is on the site, so I have to switch over to Google chrome to use this function instead. Am I doing something wrong? It works sporadically. I took a screenshot of it working and not working. I try the exact same website in chrome and it allows me to search.

I'd prefer to use Firefox to log into Walgreens but I can't. I was able to a year ago the last time I shopped on the website. I've tried a lot: 1. Close Firefox and reopen it. 2. Tried Safari (and it did work) 3. Clear your cookies. 4. Clear your cache. 5. Reboot your computer. 6. I installed Firefox on my iPod Touch and it didn't work there either. 7. Go directly to photo.walgreens.com, that didn't work either.

When I try to log in, I get a red pop up that states "We are sorry for the inconvenience, but this service is currently unavailable. Please try again later." I've also tried to reset my password to see if that would help and I can't. I get another red pop that states "We are sorry for the inconvenience, but the service is currently unavailable. Please try again later."

When I tried on my iPod. I installed Firefox for the first time on it, I didn't sync it with my account on my Mac, and I couldn't log into Walgreens.com on there either. I got a completely white screen with this error message: Cannot GET / profile/autologin.jsp4ru=/ The print is so tiny I had to get a magnifying glass. I think it's correct. Then I tried photo.walgreens.com on the iPod. It went directly to the site from the error page from Walgreens.com and I was already logged in, strangely. Even though I just got an error message before! I had to log out of photo.walgreens.com to try to log in directly and got an error message: Cannot GET /profile/autologin.jsp4ru=/sso/sanlRedirect . jsp

I don't know what's changed since I last shopped on walgreens.com a year ago. I tried their technical service and I ended up being told after trying all that and it still doesn't work that Firefox isn't compatible with the Walgreen's website. Is that correct or am I missing something? I appreciate any help.

Hi, I've been using Firefox Nightly for long time, but recently I haven't open it too often. Today I opened again and noticed that the Add-ons that are usually on the right side of the bar are gone, but I still see them on Preferences -> Manage Your Extensions. I cannot find a way to put them back on the Toolbar. My concern is with Add-ons like Metamask that I usually use to sign in some websites. I cannot click on it from where it is on Preferences.
