Hello, I am trying to add searx as my default search engine. Searx runs on port 8080 on my localhost therefore it's url is https://localhost:8080. I can successfully visit this url and use searx; however when I add searx using the green button to my search engine list, it strips the port resulting in an error when searching. This is very frustrating with no ability to change this setting as far as I can tell. Is there any work around for this issue?

duplicate of /questions/1359208 and also moved from Firefox for iOS to Firefox section as you are using Firefox on a Mac.


I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?

I am comparing different browser-based password manager implementations.

I noticed that Firefox prompts to remember credentials when a form is submitted, but some other browsers, e.g., Google Chrome, wait until the server responds with a success status before prompting (and, if the server responds with an error status, then the browser does not prompt to remember the credentials).

I assume there are pros/cons to these different approaches, and I would like to better understand the trade-offs.

Right now, all I see is that it is possible—even likely—for a user to tell Firefox to remember an incorrect/invalid password—which seems like a downside to Firefox's approach.

Ever since I updated my Mac OS to Catalina, and updated Firefox to 70, any time I re-start my computer, Firefox does not recognize previous sessions and I have to open my tabs - including pinned tabs - over again. Then I get messages on my other devices saying Firefox has been opened on a new device. It doesn't recognize that I've been running Firefox before.

Hi and hello!

I am on a Macbook Pro laptop from 2015

Whenever I attempt to view something off Netflix I keep getting error code F7121-3078 :(

Similarly, when I attempt to view Amazon Prime Video it says "We're experiencing a problem playing this video."

I followed instructions, I updated my mac itself to Catalina 10.15.3 and reinstalled Firefox so it should be 100% up to date.

still didn't work.

I read somewhere in this forum from a January post if I open Firefox in 32 bit mode after selecting command + i that it should work but I didn't have that option. I opted for the low resolution setting I saw and not only do the videos still not play but now it looks like I need glasses more than I really do :p I'll be changing that back asap.

What's the vibe check on this? Is there a resolution or a possible ETA of a resolution? Anything?

Any info would be grand!

Every morning, when I first turn on my computer, I a have to spend the first 5 minutes setting up my Firefox again because of a "new profile". I have to re-enable all of my add-ons and configure them as well. Why does this happen every single day and is there a way to prevent it? If not, then I'm done with this browser...such a colossal waste of time for something that I shouldn't have to do. I don't have to completely set up Chrome or Edge if they do an update...all of the pertinent stuff is brought forward.

I have configured Firefox (version 74.0 for Mac) for DNS over HTTPS with Cloudflare (see image 1). But if I enter a domain that does not exist, I get a branded page from my ISP, Verizon, that says the domain does not exist (see image 2). So apparently Verizon is still responding to my DNS requests, not Cloudflare over HTTPS. Any idea what's up? Thanks.

CSS sourcemap: Page doesn't update after changes to scss file. Although I can confirm there's compilation of scss file into css

Hi, I'm using webpack 4.6 and Babel 7+ to compiled JS, CSS, and their sourcemaps. I can edit individual SCSS files directly in the style editor, and have verified that webpack watch triggers a compilation, so a new css file replaces the original.

I was expecting Firefox to render style changes without me having to manually reload the page (as I have been able to do in the past with tools such as grunt). But that's not the case. Styles are not automatically updated and I have to reload the page by hand. Not a big deal when it is only once change I have to do, but on my work, I have to do this dozens and dozens of times when I'm developing, so it gets a little tiring.

Any suggestions on how to trigger the 'live' updating of styles ?

Thank you!

I'm using firefox browser on my mac and windows computer - both are updated and on version 75 of firefox. When I go to certain websites, the entire webpage will not load. For example, when you go on adidas.com and click on an item, you should see a chat function in the lower right hand corner. This pops up immediately on safari and chrome. However, it does not appear at all on firefox. similar issues occur on other websites as well. any suggestions on how to fix this?
