Running a Mac

Just updated to Monterey 12.2 and using Firefox 97.0.1 64 bit. As soon as the updates occured, several websites now have scrambled text. (see attachment for example) Only some parts of the page are scrambled so perhaps it's some kind of HTML error...?

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the browser but no changes.

Does not occur on every website and does not occur in other browsers...

When you have pinned tabs, Firefox no longer opens the first link you click (which starts Firefox). It starts, but without showing you the website from the link. Once Firefox is started, clicking links works as expected. Without pinned tabs, Firefox also opens with the first link as expected. So the problem is definitely the pinned tabs.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Start Firefox and add a pinned tab.
  2. Quit Firefox
  3. Click on a link in e.g. an e-mail to open Firefox with that website -> Firefox starts (with the pinned tab), but without opening the website from link you clicked.
  4. Click again on that same link and now the website does open.
  5. Remove the pinned tab and quit Firefox.
  6. Click on the link -> Firefox opens with the website from the link.

Like the subject title says:

Firefox - Keyboard Shortcut Binding Tab to Super + (alpha char of choice) (like Super+num, but a designated tab)


It could be useful to have some functionality to 'Bind' a 'Tab of choice' to a Super+(alpha/qwerty) key combination.

for instance:a user can bind Soundcloud.com (Tab in position 27) to Super+'s' to reach it quickly.

All in agreement? Cheers,

Is there any way to set a preference for system print dialog box to open as a default, rather than Firefox's print dialog box?? (97.0.1) I've tried the following suggestion that shows up many times (but not for 97.0.1 that I could find) that Firefox users may disable the new print preview interface in the following way

   Load about:config in the Firefox address bar.
   Confirm that you will be careful.
   Search for print. tab_modal. enabled. Set the preference to TRUE to enable the new print preview. Set the preference to FALSE to disable it.

Doesn't work for me, still get the default Firefox print dialog (which I hate by the way as you have to scroll to the bottom of popup box to select : Print using the system dialog.) Hope you can provide instructions as to how I can set the system print dialog as the default.

Thank you

I can log onto one of my credit card websites, but when I click on the log in box, it turns to an "X." There are no spots for me to enter my username and password. I changed my Firefox privacy setting. I checked with the credit card tech people, and they suggested I reinstall Firefox. Is my problem with the credit card site, Firefox, or the fact that I upgraded to Monterey on my Mac?

Hello all, I must admit that I am about to completely give up on Firefox browser as it keeps getting less and less convenient to use....

My most recent issue is that I cannot find a single video downloader application that will work on any website that plays videos. I used to use Any Video Downloader, but as the Firefox people kept updating the browser that fell off, and doesn't work anymore. Then for about the last year or so, i had been using the Video Downloadhelper addon, but recently that no longer will work either because it is demanding that I upgrade the Companion app., except it will not allow me to install it because of Apple Macintosh security stupidity, so I cannot use that now. Other than those two addons, none of the others seem to find a video that they can download half the time. This includes all the recommendations I have found online including the 'Video Downloader Pro', which cannot find a suitable format for most online videos, and the 'Video Downloader professional' which also cannot seem to even find videos on websites that clearly have a video playing. I have tried many others as well, but none of them are reliable to work on any video I find, and I am sick to death of desperately trying to find a working downloader addon that will not be patched out by the Mozilla team next month, so that they can 'keep with the times' or whatever. Can anyone suggest a useful addon to download videos from websites that will work for ANY videos I find anywhere please?? Thanks in advance!!

PS. I think I got it to work by going to about:config, and changing the 'media.play-stand-alone' to False, but that still leaves only the ability to download the videos in HUGE files, like at least 300mb or more, which is also not a good solution.

I mainly use Firefox as my browser and use Microsoft Outlook for my university email. I already contacted university tech support and Microsoft Outlook tech support and neither was able to provide me with a solution except for suggesting it could be a browser issue.

When I draft an email, as I am typing the email will delete itself, archive itself, or try to set up some weird category system that I didn't initiate. It has become impossible to draft emails online for this reason because I never know when something might erase or delete as I type. I do not have any issues typing on other websites, including using Gmail.

Has anyone else had this issue before with Outlook?
