Until recently, when I would capture a PCAP file from a device through the web GUI, I would be able to click on the PCAP (packet capture) file and it would open the file in Wireshark. As of this week, it stopped doing that and now only allows me to save the file and I need to look for the file and double click on it to open the file. I lose a lot of time doing that. Looked at the mime types already installed but there is no pcap to allow me to associate with Wireshark. I am running macOS Monte Rey on an M1 platform. I was working fine before.

Thanks

cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

I have one particular PDF file that is very difficult to upload to Google Drive, using Firefox 98.02 on my Mac Book Air 2017 laptop, running OS 11.6. The upload says that it started, but never finishes. This particular PDF file uploads fine using the Safari web browser. It uploads fine using the Google Drive on the Desktop software. I've read the troubleshooting advice, cleared all history, cleared the cache, tried safe mode, refreshed the browser, reinstalled the browser, etc. etc. I might get this file to successfully upload once after doing all that, but after that it won't upload again. This behavior bothers me greatly. I seek advice here. Numerous other PDF files don't have this problem.

I'm not entirely sure what's happened, but I can describe it. My Macbook Air crashed for reasons unknown, and upon rebooting it, I attempted to open Firefox, but was met with the message "A copy of firefox is already open". I found some old guide on using Terminal to discover two different profiles for Firefox. After restarting my computer, I accessed my Firefox tabs from before, but now when I open links from my email account, they default to opening up a new Firefox window, one where it seems my bookmarks don't exist. How do I remove the second profile without losing my bookmarks?

Firefox deleted bookmarks; restore bookmarks not working

Machine: Mac M1 Max 14-inch (2021) running Monterey 12.1 Browser: Firefox 98.0.2 (64-bit)

Symptom: Without apparently updating Firefox or even restarting it, I opened Bookmarks tonight to find them completely nuked. They are usually in "Other Bookmarks"; this tab now says "(Empty)". Tried opening a second profile (created without my knowing it), but the bookmarks are not there either. Tried restoring them from backup, and it tells me this will replace the existing bookmarks. I'm OK with that, since anything's better than "(Empty)", so I click OK, and nothing happens, no bookmarks, no nothing. There are four bookmark backups, and none of them work. I tried going into my Time Machine and getting an older copy of the bookmarks file, and this doesn't work. I tried restarting Firefox and this doesn't work. I tried rebooting and this doesn't work. I tried uninstalling Firefox and reinstalling it and this doesn't work.

It's 14 bookmarks, so it's not exactly the end of the world, but I find this behavior puzzling and, frankly, not very impressive. Any suggestions?

Firefox refuses to show my website correctly on my MacBook Pro M1 Pro, using OS 12.2. All other browsers on show it correctly. Firefox on my iPhone and iPad show it correctly too. I have tried all the obvious things... refresh, clear cache, deleted the application and reinstalled. However, I still get the same disjointed view of my website.

Please see the first image of how it looks and the second image of how it should look doesn't seem to want to upload here!

HI there. Suddenly, as of maybe a couple of weeks ago, I can't load Yahoo at all in a Firefox tab. I use Yahoo mail. I have to open Chrome for my email. This is a problem and I may have to stop using Firefox due to this. Why is this happening? What can I do? I haven't had a problem with any other website.
