The strict protection mode in Firefox has been really great for me so far. My understanding is that it creates a separate "cookie jar" for each website. Knowing this, I was wondering if Facebook container is still needed to stop Facebook tracking. I never visit the Facebook website and I don't have a Facebook account. I also use Ublock and Privacy badger, if that makes a difference.

I have tried everything that I can find to get rid of that damn searchitnow, which replaced my preferred Google Search. I've looked for downloads, extensions, everything. I've checked to make sure Google is my preferred search engine, and on and on. There is nothing. I have run Malwarebytes several times and it comes up clean.

How do I get this off my Mac? I am running OS X El Capitan 10.11.6.

I am working in an online class and we are asked to record videos in an online platform for school. When I go to hit the play button on anyone's video I get an error message. This does not happen in other browsers, but I want to keep using Firefox. Is there a privacy or cookie setting that could be causing this to happen?

Hello,

I'm using firefox sync with an own sync server.

Since a few weeks the synchronization of tabs doesn't work right. I use five devices. On my Macbook, the iPhone and the iPad mini I can see and reach the tab-sync of these three devices.

On another iPad and an Linux-PC, wich I added at last, I can see the tab-sync of all five devices.

How can I force the first three devices to sync the tabs of all five devices? I did alread several steps of testing and trying, like manual synchronization or remove and adding again all devices to the account.

It would be great to find some help! Thanks in advance and best regards - Daniel

When I click shift and right click always a context menu comes up and I would like to deactivate that. Concrete: I would like to draw arrows on a chessboard (lichess.org) with shift and rightclick, but then always a context menu comes up and distracts. This is very annoying and I would like to change that - though what I found so far wasn't that helpful for me.

Thank you very much in advance

Hello,

i'm having a problem navigating inside some of the websites on Firefox for Mac. Either the page is grey, and I can't navigate the page or I can't scroll down the page. It's not doing it on evry websites but it's become really annoying.

I tried to go into Preferences and in the privacy to see if there was somthing there, but the privacy setting is set to standard and I don't see anything there that can prevent what's happening.

Thank you for your help in this matter. Kssaw

I use keyword for search engines extensively and this is very very annoying!

How do I make it go away.

I use Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Mac os x Catalina 10.15.6

"Pocket List" has disappeared in the drop down menu under the "library" icon where it used to be not more than a few days ago. It's not under the Bookmarks icon, either. the "Pocket" icon is in the menu bar, and I can save items to Pocket, but can no longer locate the page with the articles. "View List" does appear when you click the Pocket icon, but it also saves whatever page you're on whether or not you want to save it.

Friends, I use FF extensively and prefer not to change but it's been very annoying as of late.

Running v83. Even downgraded to v82 and it worked for some minutes but now it's back to same behavior. [struggle to download to 82 is here: https://rezamusic.yolasite.com/technical-tips.php]

If you google "squeeze lemon" for example -- on my Chrome it shows images and a list of drop down subjects "people also ask".

On Firefox, the pictures don't show -- and drop downs are frozen (don't work). Also on other sites that have a Captcha, Firefox just doesn't work. Seems same problem with 82. Help!

Images are from Chrome -- and last one from Firefox
