I've been having this issue for a couple days now where if I place my cursor on any YouTube video progress bar, it starts to rapidly and repeatedly disappear and reappear. At this point, it's become an incredible annoyance that I have yet to find a solution to. I have visited a different thread that recommended disabling Firefox's hardware acceleration option located under preferences. I currently am using the Firefox browser on a Mac, and would appreciate any advice.

I found the "pinch to zoom" add on however that is for the Apple trackpad. I can zoom in with CONTROL & scoll on a Mac, though it doesnt zoom in like it did on Chromium based browsers.

Hi,

I try to print directly from Firefox a pdf which is a shipping label on my Dymo LabelWriter 4xl. The settings for this label is 104x159mm. When I print this from Chrome it will cover the whole page and it will print correctly. I have my printing settings as follows : "printer = dymo labelwriter 4xl", "pages = all", "paper size = 1744907 4 in x 6 in" (which is 104 by 159 mm) I have it set on preview and then I get 1/3 of the image (see screenshot) How to get Firefox printing it automatically correct as Chrome does. I am on an iMac with Catalina.

Hello. I like to end my text conversations with this cute little fish: <{~~< But it's quite difficult to type on a desktop, so I made a shortcut to it in my mac OS, by typing pf. It works everywhere on my machine but on firefox, which is my preferred browser for chatting, so it's the only time I really need to use it. It's a serious buzzkil, especially since it SHOULD WORK, but doesn't. Can anyone help? I'm on a brand new machine, with a brand new (June 29 2020) download of Firefox with the french canadian language pack installed (it didn't work before I put the language pack on either).

Thanks in advance.

Has anyone else encountered the problem of Firefox for Mac disappearing from my after restarting my computer only to pop up after a few minutes and set up like a new browser? I was using Firefox on my MacBook Pro with sync on, but after restarting my laptop, Firefox shows up as a new device syncing my account and I can see my previous browser's synced tabs as if that was a separate device. Sorry for rambling, anyone have a solution?

I live in the mountains of North Wales so am at the end of a lot of copper or (even) aluminium wires. I rotate ISPs regularly and have been at this shit since the WWW was invented and have even bought a Cisco router to host our own web site in the 1990s. I KNOW that the ISPs manage my connection speeds, router management software WILL be more capable than the Cisco router we managed ourselves!! I notice a similar profile of getting the speeds that are advertised at the start of a contract and then to throttle it as they add more customers to the same kit that they lease from OpenReach; increased latency! I also get OpenReach business notifications and know that the ISPs pay OpenReach for not only bandwidth that they use but also the electricity that powers them, OpenReach also charge for shit loads more but lets stick to the simples! ALL the ISPs deny ANY management function which is disengenuous to say the least!! There is a worrying trend in businesses to not only have no usable phone numbers (I had about eight BT numbers when we had the Cisco Router but NONE work anymore) due to the telephony shit that infests what laughly passes for customer service these days. {Thinks: Is there an undisclosed word limit to this field!?!?? I daren't hit return to go to a new para 'cause it might send like the excreble messaging systems which pass for comms in these benighted days!! My point for the designers of Firefox is: when I try to do "Speed test I can count up to FIVE seconds before a Ping is registered which is never more than a 100ms so that's bollocks! Then it doesn't matter how many tabs I have open (often shit loads) the speeds that I get are independant and even when I'm "listening" to radio articles that doesn't effect the results either! A GENUINE speed test should be built into Firefox don't ya think??

I'm running macOS Mojave (version 10.14.6 ) and Firefox 77.0.1

When I CMD-P to print a web page, sometimes I want to generate it as a PDF. On the print popup, at the bottom left is a drop-down for PDF options. One of them is to send the PDF via email.

Yes, I want to do that. But if I select it, Firefox launches Apple Mail to do the sending. I want it to launch Thunderbird, as it has all my contacts and I want the "sent" file to go into my Thunderbird files.

How do I override Firefox launching Apple Mail and have it launch Thunderbird instead. I've prowled around in the preferences but can't find any that allow me to pick my preferred email app.

Thanks!

Every time I try to watch YouTube on Firefox with my macbook air I get this playback error (Playback ID: sEHXuiLJtgNbGvyb).

I am not using any extensions at all. I have already tried turning off hardware acceleration and it did not help. I can watch youtube on any other browser and what is annoying to me is that only the ads are playing on youtube with firefox. For some reason when they do play the bar the play button that it is on seems glitchy and keeps flashing same with youtube's menu bar.

FF 77.01 and previous versions login and password that are saved does not work correctly. When trying to login to Apple forum it will show a login name which does not show in FF "logins and password" or I have to type the whole login name before the password is recognized. The problem is it is not consistant when logging into Apple forum I may click on the login and it works or I click on login and have to enter my logiin acount. Another problem is I click on the login name and it shows 2 login names one correct the other doesn't exist in the "loging and password" field.

Why does this occur?

I have a Mac running Mojave 10.14.6. I change my browser to Bing and find it changed back to default browser days later. I have removed all the browser options but Bing and it still changes. At first it was just the browser but now it is happening with my home page settings. I set it to a page then it changes to default a few days or maybe hours later. I have played this game a dozen times or 100. Help. I don't find any thing suspicious in my files and have no add-on or extensions.
