I used to use a lot the three dots next to a webpage to share the page via airdrop (to have it/share it with my own phone or others'). Now the three dots have disappeared and, although I read here that I could do that by right clicking the page, the option for SHARE does not appear. Can you please explain how to do this now? (I use a Mac).

I am wanting to deploy Firefox v90 on Mac at work. I need to have the proxy set as auto for all users as some of the machines are macbooks that are taken off site.

In windows you just need to edit the mozilla.cfg and set proxy type to 4

On the Mac there only seems to be a prefs.js in the user library

Something needs to be in the application content folder...

I get links in professional emails that Firefox never resolves. These come from several different professional organizations, so it is not just one domain. I copy and paste into Chrome and am on the referred-to page in seconds. How can I fix this? I would prefer to not use Chrome at all. Here is an example:

emails.cmpa.org/jc.aspx?d=CWGMW4UCGAAEL7ZFLOOIMSBIQFKYGZOASFVMCF5Q4MWUUQCMVBUKP766XC5OPTVZON7UCDRMBXVUQQ3YA3ZBCWFGQFGV2IQDCZ7H6QIKFSSJXRX4KV5GAAMEYAGJIESE2GKOESIIEYPTKS436YW67GKULQVCUU6IKRPVG6IKQYCXPVTJV6PO47GCKGB2VIQKAZIWKAKXSYTKGUJ7VX3VK52CQJSEP34ZRWY67YWNGYECA7R6ZYRSHNY4NZBRRWZH24TV24TIKG44STKSPMYXS4DCCSIO7JSD2U2V7KKRHNFGQXXMETPXPMNXCKB57NOZ5X3D234PTI7TROV6JOUGWBYP3X75SJAUG2V6RTRJJR5XUVUZBALQCWUWT4RRXVALF3N2XB5ZIIO2UXRB7D5QO%3D%3D%3D

I'm trying to log into my Firefox account from a different computer from my personal, but the login page keeps flagging my password as incorrect. On my personal computer I'm able to change my password, but whenever I change it the system flags the "previous" password as incorrect, and none of the ones I change it to register as correct on the second computer. I really don't want to reset my whole Firefox account to be able to log into another computer, please help?

Cut and paste no longer works with Google Translate on linux

This problem has been around since the latest version of the old version, and has carried across into the new version. Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work with Google Translate on linux. I have tested in other browsers and it they all work fine. Firefox on Windows also works fine, this problem seems specific to linux.

When you press any of the Ctrl combinations it simply deselects everything and moves the cursor to the end of the text. Mouse works, but it's not practical if you are cutting and pasting all day long.

Site: https://translate.google.com Firefox version: 89.0.2 (64-bit) OS: Ubuntu 20.04

Google Translation is critical to my work so my current solution is I no longer use Firefox. I hope that someone knows of a quick fix, or if it's a bug it's easy to fix as I'd hate to permanently move away from Firefox for something like this.

Thanks!

I have a HP office jet 6500 printer. It has been working fine from my Ubuntu Computer using Firefox . Since downloading the latest version of Firefox I cannot connect to the printer and there for cannot print or scan.

The printer is still working normally from a second computer using Windows10.

I have tried re installing the printer but that has made no difference.

I am wondering if the problem could be caused by the Firefox fire wall. Help please. Please note I don't even know enough to be dangerous so any help will need to be extremely basic. I know my name everything else will need to be explained step by step,

Thanks

Found a quote here from BILL, right before the thread got closed ofc: "This is not a common problem so I don't know how to fix this apart from what jscher2000 already told you. The only other option I can see is if you uninstall and reinstall firefox and see if the problem still persists."

Actually it is a common problem. Actually there are tons of post asking directly and indirectly how to do this and you keep dodging the question. Each time you focus on the person's problem and provide an amateur fix to their local problem rather than providing a real solution like giving us the freedom specify where we want the output directed. The inet itself is full of ppl asking this question on other sites, and there are several possible solutions. Like using the windows sound settings option which is only available if your windows is up to date. Or an addon if you like sharing some info with a stranger and all his customers. And lets not forget the dude that made his own software and uploaded it to github 5 years ago, that solution certainly sounds secure right? All three, possible solutions to the problem, amateur but possible. Just like its also possible that the devs of FF are amateurs for not being able to provide the obvious solution for over 10 years now, which is to let us specify it... Or is it lazyness thats the problem? Why provide something that someone else has already provided before you in a much worse way than you would right?

Que the "did you try blablabla?", no I didnt and I wont. Oh wait that wont come because you cant answer my question with another question since I didnt tell you my problem. Now answer the simple question. I want to know how I can specify to firefox which audio output to use, not hear your... brilliant and not to say the least super safe work around.
