Hello! A site kept popping up a confirmation window for an action I was trying to take, and in the confirmation window, there was a checkbox for something like "don't allow [this website] to prompt me again" (that's as best I can remember). I checked the box thinking it would just allow the action to happen without the confirmation window, but instead, the site just won't take that action anymore. How can I undo this setting? Thank you!

Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

Hi I'm running a Mac - macOS Monterey 12.1 (21C52) and using Firefox 96.0.2 (64-bit).

Yesterday I wiped my Mac and set it up as brand new. I downloaded my saved Bookmarks and Passwords to Safari and then tried to add my Bookmarks and Passwords to Firefox but the option to import "Other Data" is not showing (see attachment).

Anyone know why this is specifically not showing up regardless of whether I try and import from Safari or Chrome?

On my 2020 iMac I have my firefox settings set to open previous windows and tabs at startup. If I close firefox and then reopen it, particularly after startup, the previous windows and tabs are gone. Usually I can open history and restore the previous windows and tabs. Today, for the first time, at startup, not only were the previous sessions' windows and tabs gone, but there was no history of any sort. I did not clear the history, but all my history is gone.

How do I get firefox to reliably reopen my previous windows and tabs, and now, how do I retrieve all my history?

Long time user of Firefox, and installed latest update and there is something wrong with it. Perhaps someone wrote a bad line of code? After installing the update there are at least 2 problems. One, Safesearch can no longer be turned off. Two, suggestions as you type cannot be turned off, this is extremely annoying as I do not like or use this feature. I cannot use Firefox in this crippled condition and will use another browser for my web searches which are frequent for my research and other project. This is sad as Firefox has been my primary browser almost since it's inception. I have tried to fix this on my own and have only been frustrated and wasted a good bit of time.

Expected behaviour:

When I click an attach file button, a file browser window should open showing files on my local system. When I select a file, that file gets uploaded through the browser.

Actual behaviour:

When I click an attach file button, the cursor changes to a colourful spinny wheel, and no file browser window opens.

Just noticed today that Firefox on my work computer (Mac) is adding an icon to the MacOS Dock that opens the URL of the currently active tab from Firefox on my personal computer (also a Mac). Firefox on my work computer is signed into Sync w/ my work Firefox account and Firefox on my personal computer is signed into sync w/ my personal Firefox account. This is crazy and unacceptable.

I have not previously signed into my personal Firefox account on my work computer, the Connected Services section of the Firefox Account Settings for my personal account does not show my work computer and the Connected Services for my work account does not show my personal computer.

Both computers are on the same physical network, but do not otherwise interact.

Obviously people have asked this before, but those threads all seem to be closed now. The idea that a browser would not want to have a consistent UI with every other part of the operating system is absolutely nuts, so why is it not easier (or even automatic?!) to place the 'close tab' button on the left when running on a Mac operating system?

I have tried the solutions recommended here – https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253751 – but without any success. Maybe someone could help me understand what I am doing wrong? Better yet, maybe Mozilla could remove the need for such workarounds and implement what ought to be a standard feature?

Firefox & Chrome Do Not Open Website Horizontally but Dropdown or Vertically

I have Firefox Browser 96.0.2 (64-bit) and Google Chrome Version 97.0.4692.99 (Official Build) (x86_64). installed in my MacBook Pro early 2013 macOS Catalina Version 10.15.7. And I've got this error message, "Warning! Internet Explorer should not be used for proper operation of the Administrator Backend" when I opened my website, ulattime.com/ulattime/administrator," which opens vertically or downward or dropdown, instead of "horizontally" and I don't have "Internet Explorer" browser. Please see screenshot, https://imgur.com/zNMVSSf. I used FireFox and Chrome either as default and had now removed it as default as the same error message happened when I used these browsers. I went to “Network Setting” of Firefox and tried “Manual proxy configuration” and I also enabled “DNS over HTTPS” and “Use Provider” “Cloudfare”(Default) and “NextDNS” and “Custom” but nothing happened. But in Safari, my website opens "horizontally" so I am keeping Safari as my default browser for now. If Firefox or Chrome opens "horizontally," I can restore either of them as my default browser again. Thank you.
