I'm getting this error message on a site I have visited for 10 years without a problem. Last week this error message came up. Its for a financial website. I have been able to reach the same website through Safari and Opera so its a Firefox issue.

I'd guess there's already a discussion regarding this, but I don't know where. Getting rid of the borders when there are multiple tabs open and turning things gray makes for a far worse browsing experience for me. Why would one string of undifferentiated text in a long line of tabs make things any easier? It does not.

I've found a helpful site that allows turning off the new theme, but a commenter advises that that option too will soon be disabled: https://www.askvg.com/tip-restore-old-classic-theme-and-ui-in-firefox-89-and-later-versions/

Is there an add-on that keeps the "classic" theme? I've googled how to provide feedback. One of those links is dead. What's the best way to make my thoughts known?

People love tech, but the older I get the more I see how it demonstrates a lack of ownership, that nothing is really yours on your devices, that what you're comfortable with is only one weekly update away.

Hello all,

I used to have this setting whereby I had an icon at the end of the address bar which I could click on to copy whichever link was current at the time. I reinstalled Firefox or something due to a problem I had and I can't seem to find that option anymore. I can't remember if it was an add-on or an option in Firefox itself as standard.

I'm using Firefox 89.0 on a Mac.

Does anybody know how I can get that icon back?

Thank you.

Firefox, latest version, keeps logging me out of sites. I have tried all troubleshooting suggestions offered on the web that I could find, short of starting all over by resetting profile, which I do NOT want to do.

Anyone have any suggestions other than the standard ones about cookies, preference settings having to do with cookies, private browsing, deleting all cookies, deleting cookies files in profile folder, extension issues, etc?

Thank you!

The latest version 84.0.1 for Mac now opens a new print menu, which is terrible. How do I force it to go away and permanently default to "print using the system dialog", which "Firefox help" never heard of. I can't find any way to get rid of it. It is a hateful change to Firefox, I hate it and my sister is in tears. She hates computers anyway. Seniors can't handle these dramatic changes.

Hey, my website "www.kosmetikstuebchen-nicole.de" is not correctly displaying in Firefox Browser. In Google Chrome, Opera and Safari there is no problem. You can see the problem on the screenshot. I still ask my provider "Host Europe" if they are able to explain, why during using the Firefox Browser the website is not correct. They just told me, that maybe there might be a problem with the accessability view, but they were not able to solve the problem! Is there anybody who can help me to solve that problem? Thanks a lot!

I found the profile in my Library.

Looked for internet advertised "Firefox profile manager," but could not find it. Only one I could find was obsolete.

For no reason I can identify, Firefox has started repeatedly crashing ever since I upgraded to Monterey on my fairly new Mac. It happens two or three times a day. I always send the report. This morning when I started up, I noticed the Firefox browser had been updated to 94.0.1, and I hoped it would have fixed itself, but an hour later it crashed again.

I recently migrated all of my files and applications from a 2013 macbook retina pro that had FF 56.0.2 to a 2020 macbook retina pro. The application transferred over with no problems with one exception. I have a blog on livejournal.com and now cannot post or reply to comments on the blog. FF just hangs and freezes. I can't even quit the page unless I quit FF totally and then restart. I can still access livejournal from Safari w/no problems. I checked my extensions (only have two) and disabled hardware acceleration but nothing has helped. Does anyone have any suggestion? I'm not crazy about safari and would like to continue to use FF. Thanks so much for any help!

Running FF for Mac 85.0.2 but has issue in previous version. The history on the search bar is not updating. Previously, the list of sites would appear depending on how often they were accessed. i.e. most popular would be first on the list and the order would change depending on usage. That list no longer updates. There is still a list but it never changes. I have cleared forms and search history but the same list keeps coming back.

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want
