I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?

Flash player add-on crashes in all applications OSX 10.9.2; Firefox (28.0) safe mode didn't help. Re-installed Flash, rebooted, no luck. Any ideas?

Flash stopped working the same day that Norton Anti-Virus [version 10.6 (26)] reported, "(Web Attack: Angler Exploit kit Flash Download 4) blocked." I suppose this means that the malware was not installed; so may be only a coincidence.

The HTML5 youtube video referenced on the Mozilla site, "Amazing Roger Federer trickshot on Gillette ad shoot," works fine. The non-HTML5 version reports the flash player crashed. Game site, bubbleshooter.com won't work either.

Troubleshooter plugin installed. Tried Firefox safe mode, no help. Safari browser also has flash player crash. Can't figure out how to turn off hardware acceleration because the player never appears in the browser so that I can right-click on it.

Any help with this would be appreciated!

I am using Firefox Browser V81.0 (64-bit) on MacOS Catalina and I'm experiencing issues with downloading files specifically from Google Drive. I can download other files using Firefox, but it doesn't work when using GDrive. I know it's an issue with Firefox because I've tried downloading the GDrive files using Safari and it's fine.

What happens is I'll click download and then there is no prompt that asks me if I'd like to download the file.

I also looked at this thread and followed the troubleshooting measures (including clearing the browser cache and starting Firefox in Safe Mode), but it did not solve the problem: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1157677]

I've also tried un-installing/re-installing Firefox. And I have my adblocker disabled for Google Drive.

Any suggestions for how to resolve the problem?

I am using firefox on mac with manual proxies and have provided the proxy address and port. I have set the proxy in Firefox->Preferences->Advanced->Network. This proxy requires authentication But firefox does not prompt me for credentials of this proxy. It just throws a page that says "Proxy Authorization Required" and "Description: Authorization is required for access to this proxy"

I have tried the following to no effect. 1) Clearing all the profiles in ~/Library/Profiles folders 2) Clearing profiles.ini file. 3) Setting the proxy along with username and password in System preferences and make firefox use system proxies instead of manual proxies.

Right now I am downloading firefox 13 beta to see if this solves the problem. Any workaround available for FF12.0?


Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.


EDIT:: Tried with FF 13 beta. Same problem

Why is Firefox suddenly not remembering any of my logins or passwords? When I go into Preferences > Security, the box to "remember logins and passwords for websites" is checked. However, when I click on saved passwords there are zero. The boxes are still popping up asking if I want to save a password and I click yes, but it doesn't save. I am not in private browsing mode. However, I recently had an issue with firefox running slowly and was prompted to perform a function to make it run faster, which I did. I don't remember what that was, but it seems to have triggered this.

Hi all,

(Firefox 56.0 64-bit, MacOS 10.11.6)

Keyboard shortcuts do not work in Firefox on my Mac, whereas they do in all other apps.

For instance, I can copy with command-c then paste with command-v in every app... except Firefox, which makes me use the mouse instead.

This is incredibly annoying, and is the same on my work machine and the one at home (both the same versions of FF and MacOS).

Any idea what's happening, and how I can make shortcuts work in FF?

Thanks,

Miche

The Firefox desktop browser is the only one that give me this error Error code: SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE I am on a MAC OS using latest version of Mozilla Firefox desktop browser: 82.0.1 (64-bit) Incognito mode, cleared everything, reinstalled the browser and still got the same error. Talked with GoDaddy support and they told me everything is ok on their side. What is going on? Why: Safari, Chrome, Opera, Firefox Mobile (iOS) and so on have no problem loading my pages, but Firefox desktop has?

I looked on my GoDaddy hosting cPanel and the SSL are correctly generated and valid, so I don't understand what is going on with this browser.

Thank you! PS - If this is already answered, please point me to the correct reply.

I have stopped using Firefox as nothing I have done has fixed this problem. I have tried shutting down Firefox and rebooting it, I cleared all my add-ons and then added adblock back (that's the only one) but it still doesn't work. I've deleted large files so that I have more space - I can't think of anything else that will work. I have spoken to four of my friends with Macs and they are all having the same problem with Firefox since Mavericks.

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

What is going on??? I've used flash to stream the news channels on a particular site, for years, on my old iMac, and Macbook Pro, now I have a brand new iMac, and Firefox won't run it, doesn't even give me the option to use it, and the feature in preferences that allows me to list exceptions to not playing video or audio shows no way to ADD a site, making it completely useless! What is causing this dysfunction?

As the image shows, I try to add this website, but there's no way to do it, and there's no sites shown in the window, now. So HOW do I get them in the window??

My present iMac is failing rapidly and I will be replacing it with a new Mac very. I do not have a Time Machine backup. The only info I really need is how to copy off, to an external drive, all the bookmarks and bookmark structure), extensions, and add-ons I have added to Firefox, and then add them to Firefox on my future Mac.

Do I just copy the Firefox app to the external drive? I looked in the Macs' base system Library and Preferences, and in my User files, but I do not see anything related to Firefox.

My old (current) and failing Mac is running the latest version of Catalina,

Thanks for any info!

I'm using Firefox 68.0.1 on macOS Mojave 10.14.5. When I go full screen, the tabs and address bar remain at the top of the screen. I can't make them go away. I've tried:

- Installing plugins (I tried a couple) - Disabling Add-ons (Safe mode) - Resetting Firefox - Disabling hardware acceleration (and restart browser) - Using different techniques to go full screen (Cmd+Shift+F, Cmd+Ctrl+F, Zoom menu) - Scrolling or clicking in the canvas to ensure focus

No matter what, the tab bar and address bar remain on the screen (see attached screenshot). I've also attached my browser config (filtered on "full"). Is there any way to get a full-screen experience in Firefox?
