I am getting a four dot/pixel pattern (repeated across the screen/image) that appears across many - but not all - images and text in Firefox. Not present in other browsers. It follows the image/text when scrolling.

I am using FF91.3.0esr(64bit), a MacPro 5.1 on OS 10.13.6, ATI Radeon HD 5000 1024 MB feeding a 30" Apple Cinema Display. I see 'esr' means Extended Support Release - maybe I'm overextended?

Any thoughts would be gratefully received.

Attached are some samples...

Hi - When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark does not open. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. I can use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up to a select location after adding it and am able to select a new location. This started several days to a week ago. I don't know if it correlated with an update (or anything else). Thanks!

Prior to FF 94.0.2 saving a bookmark opened an option to select the folder in which it was to be placed. With 94.0.2 the bookmark is saved directly to the last folder selected with no option to select a folder. I have to perform an extra action immediately to edit the bookmark location. If this isn't done before closing the tab I have no way of finding the bookmark again. Please revert

When I'm using the Firefox browser a small pop-up box often appears saying "Must provide password." If I type in my actual password and hit Enter, the box just pops up again. If I hit the Cancel button it goes away and doesn't seem to affect my use of the browser. Is there a way to get it to stop popping up?

Just noticed today that Firefox on my work computer (Mac) is adding an icon to the MacOS Dock that opens the URL of the currently active tab from Firefox on my personal computer (also a Mac). Firefox on my work computer is signed into Sync w/ my work Firefox account and Firefox on my personal computer is signed into sync w/ my personal Firefox account. This is crazy and unacceptable.

I have not previously signed into my personal Firefox account on my work computer, the Connected Services section of the Firefox Account Settings for my personal account does not show my work computer and the Connected Services for my work account does not show my personal computer.

Both computers are on the same physical network, but do not otherwise interact.

Obviously people have asked this before, but those threads all seem to be closed now. The idea that a browser would not want to have a consistent UI with every other part of the operating system is absolutely nuts, so why is it not easier (or even automatic?!) to place the 'close tab' button on the left when running on a Mac operating system?

I have tried the solutions recommended here – https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253751 – but without any success. Maybe someone could help me understand what I am doing wrong? Better yet, maybe Mozilla could remove the need for such workarounds and implement what ought to be a standard feature?

Hi, Firefox brings my computer to halt after a few minutes of usage. The only thing I did after opening the browser is go to support page and the FirefoxCP WebExtensions process memory usage went over 20 GB of memory.

I have tried restarting my MacBook a few times as well as restarting firefox, but nothing has helped. I’ve the latest version of FireFox installed, and using a MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory.

I haven't made any changes nor added anything new lately. I think it may have started after the last update.

Thank you for your time and support!

I very frequently open .bib files to get bibliographic information on scientific articles. The by far most convenient way to open these files, which are plain text files, is to just show them as text (either in the same tab, or a new tab). For example if you search for a publication on Google scholar, and click the quotation mark and then BiBTeX, you get the bibliographical information shown as text directly in the browser (see attached screenshot).

However, many other websites and journals instead give you a link to an actual .bib file, instead of just serving up the text. But since a .bib file is just a plain text file, it should be no problem for Firefox to display this text. However, when I go under settings and try to select default actions for .bib files, my only options are to either save the file, or open it with another application (i.e., not Firefox). For other file types, for example .pdf, it works to select Open in Firefox as the default action, but not for .bib files.

Is there a way to fix this problem?

I'm using Firefox 95.0.2 on Mac OS 12.1

Thanks, Tor
