Hey all, I've encountered a strange behavior with Firefox 83 under macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 where if I have desktop notifications enabled for YouTube enabled, I'll get duplicate notifications. For example, If I have one notification waiting from YouTube when launching Firefox, I'll see it twice when opening notification center. This doesn't happen, if Firefox is running and notifications come in, and it only happens with YouTube.

Also, This didn't seem to be a problem on Firefox 82.0.3 when I initially upgraded to Big Sur. It seems to have started with version 83.

I have completely deleted all firefox data and settings, and started fresh to confirm it wasn't corrupted settings, and it doesn't appear to be. I also asked about this in #Firefox on freenode, but after a couple hours of waiting never got an answer: so trying here today.

I've also searched, and no one else seems to have reported this issue, other than me. Is this a known issue, or am I the first? Also, is there anything I can do outside waiting for a firefox update / big sure updates? For now, I have disabled desktop notifications in YouTube settings as that's the only problem site I'm experiencing. This seems to be a firefox, and Youtube specific issue, as the latest version of Chrome is also set to deliver me notifications, and those work correctly, as well as do all other notifications, both system, and app.

If there is anything I can do to resolve this, please let me know.

Thanks

Mac Browser: How Do I Change the Frame Zoom Shortcut: Cmd>2-FingerTrackpadScroll

YNAB is a personal finance budgeting system that I have used instead of Quicken for the past 10 years. Recently I updated my YNAB functionality from downloaded YNAB4 to server-based subscription nYNAB, which hasn't been equipped with all features for Safari, but is super-equipped (via TookKit developers) in Firefox. When I use Command Key to select multiple transactions in nYNAB, and then use the 2-finger scroll function on trackpad to find more below the visible range, the frame zooms out to infinitesimally small font, obviously making the font too small to recognize characters. Recovering previous font is tedious at best and frustrating to waste time and risks a loss of task concentration. The referenced Support Page doesn't even mention this action. This action does not occur in Safari, by the way, nor do I believe it is unique to nYNAB when using Firefox.

Please kill this apparently inadvertent Zoom action and substitute a MacTrackpad-friendly shortcut in next release. Thank you.

I use Firefox Developer Edition (84.0b4) on macOS and pretty much never restart Firefox. Because of this I frequently miss updates. Chrome shows an update badge on the menu icon in the toolbar.

Is this built into Firefox aswell? I couldn't find anything like this and there doesn't seem to be an addon for this either.

I recently uploaded macOS Big Sur onto my MacBook Air. At that point, my Firefox turned into a question mark on the tool bar and I have to sign in to Firefox Sync whenever I click on the question mark (which then becomes the Firefox symbol). Meanwhile, I clicked a link in an email, and this led to a second Firefox showing up in my toolbar. Both are Firefox browser 83.0, 64-bit, but the second one doesn't require signing in. However, the first one (the Sync) did retain my bookmarks. What is going on? And what do I do to just have one version of Firefox, preferably one that retains my bookmarks? Thanks for any advice!

Hello, My problem is when I did the lastest FireFox update on 11/21/20, YouTube video's will not play on FireFox, even with the accelerated hardware un-checked, and even in Safe Mode. However - YouTube "does" work just fine on Google Chrome.

My system: MBP, High Sierra, using FireFox version: 83.0 (64-bit). What Ive done so far: Ive shut off the ad-blocker, the accelerated hardware is always off, went into Safe Mode and still the vids wont play. YouTube video's play perfectly fine in Google Chrome.

FireFox: I can watch movies on Amazon Prime with no problems. Its just a YouTube problem.

Thanks very much for your sage advice.

I am inquiring what can be done to overcome this freeze on functionality. If the only folder that still functions is "Important", sending and receiving messages becomes largely impossible, or means sending extra messages, phone calls, or whatever else can be invented. Is this a general problem, I wonder? Any proposed swolutions will be much appreciated.

Hi, I have a large number of add-ons so I took them away from the tool-bar and moved them to the global menu through the Personalize menu in Firefox when clicking on the 3 bars at the right hand side of my tool bar.

I was wondering if they are still active? I'm thinking of add-ons like Facebook container, Httpeverywhere, Privacy Badger, ublock origin and the likes.

Thanks !

Hello together. I'm experiencing a strange font problem and hopefully somewone can give me a hint. My system: macOS 10.15.7, Firefox 83 and FF Dev 84.0b2 Basically, on some websites fonts are not rendered. Please check the screenshots. This strange behaviour only occures with one user (the standard user), only with those browsers (safari and chrome work well), and the problem does not affect the firefox interface. I have re-installed the apps, i deleted the profiles, i cleared the font caches... nothing helped. Does anybody of you guys has an idea? Thank you in advance and best regards b.
