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!

Hello,

I have the site espn.com bookmarked and for the last month or so it has been opening it's various foreign sites instead of the united states version when I click on the bookmark tab. It will switch to the UK and Mexico sites randomly when I click on the tab. The address is saved as the US version (espn.com) when this happens so I can't figure out why it's doing it. It doesn't matter if I use a vpn that says I'm in the US or just my regular internet provider in the US, the site keeps changing what country it chooses to open with. I noticed that every time I click the tab it will cycle between the various different sites for each country even though as I said before, the bookmark is set for espn.com. It makes no sense as none of my other bookmarks do this and it doesn't do it when I use Safari's browser. Is there anything on my end I can do to get this to stop or is it coming from espn.com's end? Thank you for your time and help. :)

I find when I am browsing on Firefox and swipe down on my Macbook trackpad, the browser often interprets even a slightly leftward slant as a command to go back a page. Is there a way to disable the swipe left/previous page function or to make it less sensitive?

Firefox 94.0.2 on Macbook Air 13-inch Early 2015 with MacOS 11.6.1

Thanks!

I have always had my browser set to ask me where to save anything I'm downloading, as you can see by the attached screenshot. However, every single file I have downloaded for the past 2-3 days has first gone into my Downloads folder instead, forcing me to re-download the file in order to get it into the correct folder. If this was for personal usage, I wouldn't care, but having to continually download business files is getting old very very quickly. Firefox has been my default browser for the better part of two decades. I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Safari just because Firefox won't let a power user customize their usage experience.

I've read all the articles here about importing my passwords and history, but the Import Wizard is ONLY giving me the option to import my bookmarks. Even if I can't get the browsing history I need to be able to migrate my (extensive) password list.

I've exported my Safari passwords as a .csv file, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import a .csv file.

The page here regarding it says the feature is 'disabled by default' but does not say it's unavailable and I can't find clear instructions for how to activate the feature so that I can import my passwords. Can anybody help?

I have Firefox 96.0.1. As of this morning, images will no longer load on any websites. The only thing that has changed since yesterday is that I followed some advice from the Washington Post on how to prevent scam emails. I have spent nearly two hours searching for and following advice to restore images on Firefox, but nothing has worked. I need more direct assistance!

The BBC website believes I am in another country, other than the UK. It currently redirects from bbc.co.uk to bbc.com, with some content no longer being available.

I have checked my IP, and it is currently a UK-based IP address. I do not have any active VPN profiles.

I have refreshed Firefox, deleted profiles, and redownloded but still the issue presists.

This problem is not reflective on any other browsers on the same machine.

Grateful for your help.

This is the BBC's advice, which I have followed - https://www.bbc.co.uk/contact/questions/behind-the-scenes/website-domain-change

Firefox has arranged my extensions alphabetically. I would prefer to group them functionally, or at least be able to separate those which have similar colors -- for example, Grammarly and Evernote are both green and I sometimes click on one when I want the other. I would also like to have the one I use most at the far right of the toolbar.

I am trying to increase the size of the font of our bookmarks on our MacBook Air laptop as they are hard to read on the smaller screen. I tried "zoom" and increasing font size in settings but that did not affect the bookmarks sidebar; only the primary web pages. I tried an add-on but could not get it to work. I did a few online searches and it appears to be a common issue but I could not find a solution so I thought I'd ask a question. Thanks for any advice that you can provide.

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?

Hi, Firefox brings my computer to halt after a few minutes of usage. The only thing I did after opening the browser is go to support page and the FirefoxCP WebExtensions process memory usage went over 20 GB of memory.

I have tried restarting my MacBook a few times as well as restarting firefox, but nothing has helped. I’ve the latest version of FireFox installed, and using a MacBook Pro with 16GB of memory.

I haven't made any changes nor added anything new lately. I think it may have started after the last update.

Thank you for your time and support!
