Hi everybody I really hope you can help me!

I have a mid 2012 macbook pro, it is old, but it has been working with no problem. I recently updated the HD cable and the harddisk to a SSD. I mainly use firefox as my internet browser and I would like to continue to do so.

Today my macbook crashed, it does so sometimes, but it always restarts with no problem - my firefox too: reopening all my tabs - it is not unusual for me to have 20 tabs open at the same time.

Today my macbook crashed and restarted, but when I pressed to reopen the firefox app, nothing happened. The little dot that shows, when a macbook application is open, shows for a second or two, but then disappears as if firefox is trying to open, but then shuts down. I tried holding down alt/option key down while starting firefox, but to no awail. How do I fix this?

I thought the app maybe needed to update, so I went to download firefox again (through google chrome browser). A new firefox application was then created - 'firefox 2' open with no problem, but I'm not signed in.

I can sign in now, but I can't sync - this is due to another unrelated problem concerning my firefox account email, which I haven't updated in due time - the email-domain I had used for my primary email (@sol.dk) has been terminated. This means ALL my saved passwords, my bookmarks, my search histrory - everthing is lost.

Does anybody have a clue how to solve this primary and secondary problem? 1) Why is my original firefox application for macbook suddenly not working? Is this fixable? 2) If it is not fixable, is there anyway mozilla/firefox can help me retrieve my firefox account with all my passwords and so on? Seems like I have been locked out.

Thank you so very much in advance! Kind regards!

But what i want is: Bookmark Bookmark Folder Bookmark Folder (Alpha order assumed.) I want them strictly alpha, regardless of file/folder property, as displayed in 'ls -l'. Having to do this manually is annoying.

I don't know which version had this change but not long before, I could type "y " (note the extra space character) and press enter to go to Youtube home page via address bar because "y" is my Youtube search engine shortcut word.

Now, when I try to do that with the latest Firefox, the search bar stylistically changes to indicate I'm searching in Youtube but pressing enter without typing any search term no longer launches the Youtube home page. I don't see the reasoning behind removing this feature, so I'm posting it here to let it be known. I hope the change is a bug and not intended.

We have a web application which used to play an audio using the adobe flash. Since firefox is going to stop the flash support in its browser, we are migrating to HTML5 audio. However, we are facing the seek issue which has been reported previously and has not been resolved as of now. The seeks does not seem to work correctly with Variable bit rate signals even in the latest version. On seeking to a particular timestamp, it plays the part of song which should ideally play 3 seconds after the seeked timestamp. I am using 256kbps VBR signal.

If flash is being unsupported starting in 2021, It will be not be possible to play music with precision on firefox using HTML5 player

Related issues:

To reproduce the issue, play an audio with 256kbps bitrate using html audio tag. Seek to some random position in the song and compare it sound played at that instant with the actual song.

Lately the latest version of Firefox (83.0) on an iMac (Catalina 10.15.7) has been wonky! Fonts all of a sudden are scrambled. If I quit, restart and return to the same page they then display again correctly. Today I was working on a WordPress website - using the Divi builder - and it won't load. I thought maybe it was an issue with a Wordpress update or the latest Divi update. . . but I tried it on Safari and it worked? I prefer to work on Firefox, but lately this has been a challenge. Anyone else having these issues?!?

it has been going on for a while. When I go to BBC website and try to play a video it does not load, I have to try refresh page a couple of time and may be start stop the video to get streaming going but most of the time it takes 4-5 trials.

I realised if I open that page in Chrome the video immediately starts when I click play, no glitch. Before I dump the FF can anyonw tell me what is causing this problem?

Keyboard shortcuts - Perform common Firefox tasks quickly when filtered for Firefox 84 and Mac reads that to move from one frame within a page to another you press F6. However, when I am on a page that has frames and I press F6, the cursor moves to the location bar. How do I change the focus from one frame to another?

I checked my system preferences for Keyboard (Apple > System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts and checked all the items and I have no shortcut set to F6, so it appears that F6 would be using Firefox's settings for that shortcut.

Hi Mozilla, I write this message here since I can't find a good place to contact you (bugzilla.mozilla.org maybe?)

Anyway, I'm a huge fan of everything you do and how you do it, and I don't hesitate from time to time to donate to the foundation.

I'm aware that most of your products and services are free, and therefore you need more resources than only donation.

The reason why I send this message, it's because I think you could add a new (paid) service to your list. A reliable and robust MX mail server system, that we could rent each month.

I'm actually renting 2 Cloud VPS, and my biggest issue was to have a trustable mail server that would not look suspicious for spam filters (spam assassin, Google etc).

That's the only reason why I pay a Google Suite every month.. to have a reliable and solid @mydomain email, and be sure my emails will be delivered every time. But I would totally prefer to give you this money better than them.

I know there's other solutions already, but I think it make sense for Mozilla to have this service, since emails and mail servers are very sensitive regarding privacy, personal data etc. and we all trust you more than Google empire.

I don't know if you can read this, but please tell me if there's a better place to send this message.

Thank you very much, Long life to Mozilla, all the best,

Phil

I noticed a strange problem on my iMac after installing the latest version of Firefox 84.0. When I attempt to download multiple image files via the "Page Info" Media tab, the download appears to initiate, but then gets stuck. It doesn't even appear in the Downloads window either, but I know it's processing invisibly in the background because when I quit Firefox I get the message "you have 1 active download. do you want to quit?" I tried this on several websites just to see if maybe one website was the issue, but it happens everywhere. However, when I download one single image at a time, that file seems to download immediately without any issue, and appears in the Downloads window. I rebooted Firefox in safe mode to see if there was an add-on or extension causing the issues, but I still have the problem. I even reset my Downloads folder using the config settings. The downloads worked fine when I was using 83.0. Anyone have idea what the problem might be?

Firefox won't stay downloaded to my computer. I am having to download it multiple times, especially if my computer has updates.

On a separate note, when it does actually stay on my computer over night, it never keeps me signed in to my Firefox account. I have to log in to it daily to have my bookmarks and passwords.

Also, it never remembers the theme I have picked for it. I would love some advice on how to fix this.

I've read through a ton of articles, and I can't seem to find a fix.
