Today, and before, about a year ago, I suddenly got a Firefox screen show up identifying itself as an annual survey. Confetti pouring down the screen.... The incentive was a *chance* to get a prize. So I proceeded cautiously and answered a few questions that seemed legit. Then, I won a prize... A Samsung Galaxy said to be valued at $1100 for $1. I was not on a page at https://easemastereight-15.life/.... Even more cautiously and suspicious moved forward using the click here, and it redirected to a different site, where of course they wanted a credit card to pay for the $1. At this point I bailed, especially because I was offered the same deal a year ago. What I want to do now is to alert Mozilla about this, and after a lot of searching, this form was the only way I could find. If anyone knows how to route this to the people who should investigate this, please do it. Meanwhile we should all remember that if it looks too good to be true, it almost certainly is.

I recently bought a new mac mini. it is running os 11.12.1 and is the new mac M1 chip. I downloaded the latest version of firefox, 85.0.2 It seems to work great..... but after a few days i have noticed that when i first wake up the computer in the morning AND after i wake it up after it's gone to sleep during the day the browser doesn't work correctly. Trackpad won't scroll. Typing won't type. Clicking on a tab dosen't open the tab..... UNTIL i click on another window of the browser, then when i go back to the first window it has opened the tab i clicked on. Very odd. If i quit firefox and open it again it works. But this is not ideal.

Anyone else experiencing this? Anyone have a solution??

Thanks, Miranda

Hi!

I am on macOS Catalina and am trying to change the copy-paste combination on my keyboard from Command+C and Command+V to Control+C and Control+V, respectively.

Under Settings > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts, I already have a copy-paste setting for 'All Applications', and it works on ALL applications I tested with (Google Chrome, Safari, Telegram, terminal emulators, etc.), EXCEPT on Firefox.

So then I tried to add a custom setting for Firefox.app. Copy works: I can CTRL+C in a firefox page and CTRL+V on another app. BUT CTRL+V does not work in Firefox itself -- the previous shortcut Command+V is what still works.

What should I do so that:

  1. Numbered list itemFirefox will use the app shortcuts for 'All Applications' instead of having its own configuration (less important)
  2. Bulleted list itemCTRL+V would work on Firefox? (more important)

My Firefox version is 85.0.2

Thanks in advance.

++

Edit, additional info:

I followed the list of valid command names at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/keyboard-shortcuts-perform-firefox-tasks-quickly?redirectslug=Keyboard+shortcuts&redirectlocale=en-US#w_bookmarks. Adding some of them to 'App Shortcut' works (such as New Tab, Close Tab, and Bookmark This Page), and some of them don't (such as Find in This Page and Find in This Page).

Until-- I leave Firefox or reboot the computer and the favorites are no longer available. If I do the same thing in Chrome, it remembers the preferences at all times, including after rebooting. Is there a way to make Firefox work as well as Chrome on this issue?

OK, I've selected automatic updates for Firefox. MacBook Air. So, I need to restart in order for the update to INSTALL. I can't just close and re-open Firefox to get the update. After I restarted, Youtube would not play. AGAIN. This happens with EVERY update. So, following instructions from an entry on the web, I erased my history. OK, now Youtube plays. But I notice I've lost my bookmarks in the process. I've mentioned this before. What's the secret to getting you experts to pay attention to this annoying, recurring thing? I would not have lost my bookmarks if I did not have to erase my history. Why can't updates be provided that will allow me to play youtube and KEEP my bookmarks--- like on every other day??? Thank you.

Is there some way to pass POST data when navigating between containers? As someone who uses searX as their search engine, which uses POST requests to perform searches, it is very inconvenient that I cannot make searches when the site that I'm searching from is in one container and the search engine I'm using is set to open in a different container, as the data containing my search request does not actually get passed.

We have a site that for some reason just started getting blocked by FireFox's Tracking content setting in private browsing mode. We have a Production build that still works but our QA build does not. For the life of my I can't figure out what changed that would have triggered Tracking content to start blocking the site. Basically the site will load but we only get a blank page.

Is there any way to debug what exactly the Tracking content filter is blocking?

I wanted to ask whether I can still use Enhanced Tracking Protection while still using Facebook Container and Multi-Account Containers. It looks like the option is not showing up in the preferences. Does use of ETF undermine using the other two? Which one is better to use? I don't want to lose the function of Facebook Container to block Facebook trackers from all the websites, but I also want other websites to be kept in separate containers as well.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 85.0.2 on macOS 11.2.1 and I can't load the PKCS11 Device Driver for my eSign. All the necessary drivers are installed on the system and the Charismatics Scard Utility recognises the devices properly. What's even stranger, is that I was able to add the device in Thunderbird (78.7.1).

Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong and get the device working, please?
