Textexpander in Google Sheets adds a line break upon expansion in Firefox

I've come across a problem with using Textexpander in Google Sheets in Firefox.

Say I have a snippet that expands to =INDEX(B2:B,MATCH("green",A2:A,0),1)

Now if I expand that by just typing the abbreviation shortcut, i.e. gs.index, it gets expanded, but has a line break before it within the cell so it doesn't get recognised as a formula. I have to manually delete the line break out.

However, if I use the global keyboard shortcut to search for the snippet and select it from the list, when entered, it goes into the cell without a preceding line break and gets registered as a formula.

Is there anyway to overcome this issue that you know of? I'm using Firefox 85.0.2, mainly because I'm on High Sierra and Safari cannot be updated beyond 13.1.2. Incidentally, I don't get this problem when using Safari.

I've raised this with the guys at Smile Software too, but asking here as it does seem to be a Firefox-specific issue.

Thanks.

Every 2 to 3 days sometimes longer, Firefox will randomly reset itself and close out all windows and tabs to a single window and different search engine. Restore last session is never available when this happens even though I have that selected and checked and it does work when I manually close out windows and tabs myself so i know that preference is selected. My search engine preferences are always reset and have to restore defaults as well. Mac os Big Sur 11.2

Thanks to anyone who can help me solve this sudden mystery. Long time user of firefox on macbook pro and mac towers.

Hi. I am on a brand new MacBook Pro with no access to my old one, and am unable to access my old Firefox boomarks. I didn't make a back up of my Firefox bookmarks and no matter what profile I try to recreate on Firefox, can't access them.

Do you know if I have any options for recovering my old bookmarks? Firefox says it automatically creates backups of profiles, but I don't understand how to activate or access these.

I cannot tell anything about my old Firefox profile from loading about:profiles page.

Thank you, Anna

hi,

I have a new install of firefox (78.7.1esr) on a new Apple Mac (10.15.7 Catalina). I used sync to sync bookmarks from an ubuntu install (85.0.1) onto the Mac.

The bookmarks arrived. They are visible on the bookmarks toolbar, bookmarks menu, and bookmarks / show all bookmarks. I can add new bookmarks using drag and drop, or by the bookmarks menu options. These bookmarks can be seen in the Bookmarks / Show All Bookmarks menu. But they do not appear in the bookmarks toolbar. It's as if there are 2 sets both started from the same sync.

  • Bookmarks added by drag and drop visible through the toolbar
  • Those added with add bookmark or show all bookmarks within the toolbar folder do not appear on the toolbar.

I've now got what looks like 2 sets that are drifting out of sync on the same latptop.


thanks for any help.

I have had the same stupid problem for 3 years. I lose power to my MAC and I have to redo all the stuff on Firefox. I lose homepage, BookmarksI really want to speak to a voice on the phone so I can explain it but that is not an option on the website. I WANT TO SPEAK TO SOMEONE WHO CAN HELP ME!!!!! I have tried a couple of the self solutions and I have the same problem. I am about to just delete this POS and go back to POS Safari. Firefox works wonderful when it is up and running but if my machine loses power or I reboot, Firefox gets wrapped around the axel and I can't get my Bookmarks/favorites back. Also, LASTPASS used to have a small icon in the upper right part of my homepage......now that is gone. I hope to here back from you.

It's messed up, especially if one trues to refresh a page. Am I the only one getting this?

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to find in which folder a specific bookmark is contained ? I can do a search on the "Show all Bookmarks" library but it only shows the URL without the folder. In Chrome there is a useful feature which let you easily highlight the location. It's very strange that isn't possible in Firefox.

There is an archived post here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1161879 but the tricky workaround is not acceptable for me. Any ideas ? Thanks in advance Stefano

Hi,

A few weeks ago I helped a tech phobic friend update Firefox on her Mac and IPad. Since then she is unable to access password protected sites (like bank and financial co) using Firefox --- on either device.

I spent the last 3 hours trying to figure out what's wrong.

For example, on her laptop, with Firefox, the user name and password is automatically filled-in for a Zoom-like site, but hitting "submit" results in an error message rejecting user name or password. Doing the exact same thing using Safari or Chrome works. This wasn't the case prior to the update.

On the IPad there are two issues. The IPad is set up for touch ID. I tried going to home log-on page for a financial company. Normally once you start to type in user name, a box would pop up asking for touch print. This no longer happens with Firefox - no prompt for touch ID. Switch to Safari and it all works. Trying to enter site by typing in user name and password doesn't work either. Hitting the log-on button does nothing. Sometimes the button stays red or turns to gray but the page doesn't change. Doing the exact same thing using Safari or the company's app works perfectly.

I tried syncing the devices, making sure password and touch ID are enabled, using Firefox 85.0.2.

Anybody have any ideas of what's wrong or how I can fix this?

Many thanks, JR
