I have a Macbook laptop and I'm using a secondary screen. I use Firefox on my secondary screen, and anytime I hover over a bookmark or a button that has a tooltip, the tooltip shows on my primary monitor, instead of showing on the secondary monitor. Steps to reproduce: 1. Setup a Mac with a secondary monitor 2. Launch Firefox on the second monitor 3. Enable the Bookmark Bar and make sure you have some bookmark set in a folder structure 4. Open one of the folder so it drops down 5. Hover over one of the items in the folder SEE: The tooltip appears on the primary monitor floating over empty space, instead of hovering over the proper menu entry in the secondary monitor

I have attached a screen capture (obscuring some personal items).

Note: Some tooltips show in the right place, but all bookmark tooltips,

Making right-click behave as it does in Chrome.

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

Hi, I just switched from Chrome to Firefox. Everything is fine except this feature.

On Mac, you can set a text replacement in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text and use it in any input in any programs. It works with Chrome and other programs that have an input field. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in Firefox :/ Is it possible to implement this? I would love to see this feature in Firefox.

I saw there are some Add-on for this, but I don't want to use them as there is already a feature in Mac.

I added an example screenshot. When I type "mymail", it automatically suggest what I set up before.

Thanks, best wishes.
