Hello,

A few weeks ago something changed in my Firefox browser where popup boxes do not show. For example, if I want to download a file, the pop-up box with the options for downloading do not show. If I want to attach or upload a file, the popup does not show. Even if I want to change a setting in my my Firefox account, I cannot if it requires a popup box.

If I restart my computer (not the browser), the problem goes away, but eventually it happens again.

It is really disruptive. Now I have to do about 60% of my work in another browser. All of my account info, bookmarks, and passwords are saved with my Firefox account, so I would prefer to be able to use Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix? I should also not--this has persisted despite updating.

I am using Firefox 109 on my MacBook Pro (M1 chip), and after I upgraded to version 109, the application menu stopped working. When I click on the pancake icon in the upper right corner of the screen, the drop down menu becomes visible, but none of the items on the list are responsive. Fortunately, I can access passwords and the like by going to preferences under the Firefox menu on the left of the screen, but it's less convenient. Can I fix this on my own, or do I need to wait for the next upgrade?

Firefox on MacOS is not saving/using logins and passwords properly.

One: When I add a login in Firefox such as: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/my-account/access.html#a4-2 (which is where I need to get my t… (read more)

One: When I add a login in Firefox such as: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/my-account/access.html#a4-2 (which is where I need to get my tax information)

It only saves: https://www.canada.ca (which is useless)

Two: When I add a login in Firefox such as: 192.168.0.1 (which is the address of my router)

I saves all the information but will not offer the actual password, only the login user.

Safari handles all this wonderfully but Firefox is terrible. I only use Firefox so I can use Ublock Original to get rid of the damn adverts from everywhere...

Is there something I'm doing wrong other than following the Firefox prompts to save a password?

hullom snce several days I canot login to my nextcloud anymore, not with any of my different user names. Nextcloud will show a login screen, I can enter my credentials, Firefox will try to connect and after a while present me a fresh empty login screen. On one of my other macs (same OS) Firefox does login ok. After deleting Firefox app and reinstalling Firefox again, the behaviour does not change. Also deleting the stored login names and passwords does not help, deleting a bunch off cookies neither. What else could I do?

Changing settings based on location (network)? Specifically - DNS-over-HTTPS

Hello everyone!

My use case is that I have pi-hole at home, so I want DNS requests go through it (DoH disabled, DNS reqs go as assigned by DHCP, actually it goes to DoH then). But when I am away from home (i.e. office) I want to have DoH enabled for privacy reasons.

Is there a way of modifying settings based on location? I guess the simplest way would be to do it with a script that checks my IP - if it's my home IP then disable DoH, otherwise enable. But I don't know how to make it work.

Can you share any experience in such task?

Thanks!

Hello, Ever since I upgraded my Mac to OS Ventura (version 13.1), some of the websites I visit display type in "gibberish" (see attached screenshot). I followed some online help suggestions such as changing the default font, but so far there is very little success. Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you for your time, Dave
