In MacOS Big Sur 11.1 on my MacBook, I have set MacOS to automatically switch between Light Mode and Dark Mode. But I notice that Firefox does not handle this well. When I have used my MacBook Dark Mode and switch back to Light Mode, Firefox still hangs in Dark Mode. The only way to solve this is to choose Light Mode in System Preferences instead of automatic.

Firefox has not been saving my passwords and every time I open it, it opens 2 tabs welcoming me to Firefox. This has been happening for about 2 months. I'll save something and then the next time I open the browser, it acts like it's the first time. I do have an "Old Firefox Data" folder but when I go to the profile section it shows a million profiles and I'm not sure how to sync my old stuff and have Firefox actually remember it.

Hi, Firefox is not opening 192.168.8.1 since 2 days ago. I have changed service providers, but now I cannot access my MIFI router's admin page. The little spinning wheel goes on forever, til I get an error message "The server at 192.168.8.1 is taking too long to respond and has timed out". No matter how many times I try, or in safe mode, I cannot connect. As I am changing service providers, I need to access the router to administrate the new simcard.

I hope someone can help? Thank you!

I'm using Firefox 78.10 on an ancient MBP El Capitan

I have used Firefox to sign into American Airlines website for years. Now when I try and sign in it says the site is unavailable but I am able to sign in on other devices and other servers. I called American Airlines and there is no problem on their end. Why is this happening all of a sudden and only for this one website. Is there anyway I could get around there so I can keep using Firefox to get on American

I had to do a factory reset of my computer a few months ago and reinstall Firefox. I have never found the bookmark folders that I used when I first got Firefox 88. Folders do not show up when I open the library, select bookmarks and manage bookmarks. Now I put all new ones in bookmark toolbar and they are a long list that is difficult to use. Is there a simple way to find and create folders so I can organize the bookmarks in toolbar and put them in folders?

I could not understand the information in the answers to similar questions. I need simple directions that are not too technical for someone without sophisticated computer skills. Thanks in advance.

In my question above, I have taken out 3 sentences but it still says I have too many characters. At first it said I had 11 more than the 255 limit; after deleting all that, it says I have 40 more. It won't make sense if I take out any more.

I have an older imac. It works well but I can't open a lot of files/applications or even reply to emails on updated hotmail version. My os is 10.2.8 and I am using 2.0.0.20. My OS can't handle later versions. I can't buy latest upgrade from MAC (snow leopard or whatever latest is) because my computer not compatible with higher/newer upgrades. I want to use my computer but be able to have hotmail work and open pics etc. I don't know what to do.

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== Today is when I can no longer reply with hotmail, they ask me to upgrade to newer but need higher firefox to do so.
