When using Firefox on MacOS, the MacOS text expansion system does not work. These are setup in MacOS System Preferences and work in other apps.

I'm running MacOS 10.15.7 and FireFox 85.0.2 (also did not work in 84).

I tried it in iOS Firefox Focus and they don't work their either.

Anyone found a fix?

Hello Firefox community. I have used Firefox for more than 10 years. In the past few weeks Firefox has become almost unusable. My mouse movement freezes 40 to 50% of the time. When I use the scroll wheel to scroll down, half the time it scrolls up. I have refreshed Firefox but after a short period of time (10 minutes?) the same problem recur. So I have started using Edge on my other monitor and I have not had the same problems. I really liked Firefox, but I cannot deal with the freezes. If anyone has had similar issues, let me know if you have found a solution. Thank you.

Hi,

I have just updated the subscription for my website - and Firefox doesn't show the site any more. All I get is a white screen with "2021 Copyright. All Rights Reserved. The Sponsored Listings displayed above are served automatically by a third party. " etc.

I have tried a hard refresh and a reboot (and rebooting our router) without success.

The website host has suggested "... browser is stuck or your ISP hasn’t picked up the domain..."

I tried getting on the website on my 'phone. That worked fine!

Any ideas, please?

Since a few weeks Firefox doesn't load/open some websites. For example, when I go to twitter.com it doesn't open, it doesn't even load. The same for Pinterest and a lot of other websites. When I open wetransfer.com for example there's no problem like you can see in the screen record.

I've uploaded a screen record at WeTransfer: https://we.tl/t-uQBibmptTK

Hope you guys could help me out.

I tried to install the Snapchat filters after watching "Cat Lawyer" - and I got a VC++ Runtime error. Firefox stopped loading too with the same error.

I removed the Snapchat filters app; repaired the VC++ Runtime error in add/remove programs - and now I see the symptoms as follows:

1. Launch Firefox from FF Icon.

    a) Bookmark clicks do nothing.  
    b) Type in a URL and nothing happens.

2. Launch Firefox from a ZOOM meeting link (and presumably other links) works - the page loads. And , once I have done that , the firefox browser works normally.

I can probably just uninstall/reinstall - but if anyone knows how to solve this I'd rather not lose all my saved pwd and history.

Running: MS Surface, Windows 10.

So I've recently noticed that Firefox is the only browser which has problems displaying colours effectively.

I've searched this issue on Google and to be quite honest, the archived responses to this issue which I've read have been rather bad-faith and evasive, blaming either driver issues or Windows settings - neither of which get in the way of other browsers' correctly displaying a webpage. And why should I fiddle with my Windows or driver settings to make a browser happy, anyway? That seems more like a sign of browser problems for obvious, logical reasons.

I have attached screenshots of the same webpage snippet on Chrome, Edge, Opera, and Firefox. The Firefox image is the last, bluest, and incorrect rendering of the webpage colour.

I have tried going into the Color menu and cancelling the override option (selecting "Never" in the drop-down menu). I've even gone into advanced settings and set gfx.color_management.mode to 0 - nothing works.

If anyone can help with this it would be much appreciated.

Now i always get this in Firefox "Playback Error There's something wrong. Please try again later. "

And yes it is just Firefox. I know that Firefox is killing the ability to listen to Amazon Music as it works perfectly fine in Chrome and Microsoft Edge but not in Firefox at all. I've tried several days - it won't play it.

Really is uninstalling and basically killing Firefox the best?

When you are presented with a text field, sometimes when you type, a small list of words you entered previously will drop down. You can then select one of those previous words, or continue with what you were originally typing. This is the Autofill feature for Firefox.

Lately, it has been a pain. After an hour or so of use, the instant I click on a text field to type something (usually for searching), the autofill box would partially drop down, only for Firefox to completely hang up. Once you recover from the initial crash, the autofill bug would not appear until at least an hour later. I tried turning off Autofill, but it cost me access to my History, so I was forced to do a complete browser reset. This issue has been with me for about a couple of weeks, and I have no idea why it's doing this.

Hi everyone, I created a "positive list" of websites, I want cookies to stay, any other should be deleted after browser shutdown. I have a problem with the website de.pons.com It is in the exception list but everytime, I go to that website the cookie accept procedure starts again.

Could you add the exception list to the things to sync?

How can I make a backup of this list?

Using FF 85.0.2

I created a fillable pdf using Adobe Acrobat. It worked at first then (I'm guessing after a FF upgrade but I don't know specifically when) all the fillable fields switched from portrait orientation to landscape.

We don't normally fill this manually. We use ColdFusion to fill the fields programatically and our browser of choice is FF.

I open the form in FF (including the Developer's Edition) (https://inlocc.stg.cfwebhost.iu.edu/BlankClaimForm.pdf) and, clicking in a fillable field, it is in landscape mode (in the field) aligned center.

When I open the form in any other browser (Opera, Explorer, Chrome) and it opens properly.

This implies a bug (this is NOT a feature!) in FF. ????
