I use Firefox on mac OS 11.5.2 and the system language is English so is the main display language in Firefox (so I see File - Edit-View etc. on top in English) However whenever I try to print something or save a page the window that opens up is in Turkish. I tried to change this from preferences -> setting-> general -> language (which shows English US as default with Turkish as the second on the list) but the "remove" button is not active.

The info on Firefox Troubleshooting Information page is like this: (not sure if it is because of one of these)

Internationalization & Localization Application Settings Requested Locales ["en-US"] Available Locales ["en-US","tr"] App Locales ["en-US","tr"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Default Locale "tr" Operating System System Locales ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"] Regional Preferences ["en-TR","tr-TR","el-TR"]

I also tried from Mac System Preferences -> Language&Region -> Apps I tried to add Firefox and select the language but language selection is not active (in gray "System Default-Turkish" is written and the message under that says Firefox doesn't support additional languages. For other apps like Word etc. system default language shows as English no problem.

Thank you

Yesterday I went to my history to locate a prior site I had visited. There was only 1 site in history, which of course surprised me, and it was to CapitalOne.com/link accounts. This is my credit card company. I removed Firefox from my Macbook and then re-downloaded Firefox and installed. Nothing has changed. My settings are correct, meaning that I should be able to have sites visited in history, yet only the one site populates, and I've been to a lot of sites today....the credit card/link accounts site is the only site that is in history. You can imagine how nervous I am right now about doing anything on line. I sure hope that someone will help out here.

Clicking "Enable" in the "Manage Your Themes" area seems to do nothing. I've tried clicking both buttons in the screenshot shown below and nothing happens at all. If I click the theme itself it takes me to another screen where the "Enable" button is also broken.

What could be causing this?  How can I change to Dark theme?

Firefox seems to reset to a newly downloaded state without reason. All my bookmarks and custom settings are lost. This has happened several times now and I do not know if it is a BigSur issue or a Firefox issue. My Mac was just updated to BigSur and I did not have this problem on Catalina. I am about to give up on Firefox because of this issue.

Systems: MacMini (2018) running Mojave 10.14.6 Windows 10 Pro v20H2, build 19042.1165, experience pack 120.2212.3530.0

Ever since FF v89 when I go into FF Settings in either system none of the options I have selected display an 'X' in that option's checkbox. In previous versions when I clicked in an option's checkbox an 'X' would appear and disappear when clicked again.

No more.

I've tried changing the theme to Dark, Light, System . . . no change to this issue in either my Mac or pc: I cannot see an 'X' in any option's checkbox in FF Settings.

Please see attached screenshots. They are with "Dark" theme, but its the same no matter what theme I choose.

How to get my Settings choices to show that I have checked off this or that option?

Solution??

Thanks!

I left my PC for a looong time (more than a month). Came back, booted Windows and started FF - and only one window reopened, despite when I closed it there was two. And "recent windows" in "history" - grayed out.

A small remark - I use my FF in weirdly advanced mode, I have many tab groups (through addon), and two windows - one with long-run tabs I need, another with temporary ones, which I lost now. There was some important sites/history. How can I restore it back?

(and what has happened to the forum? Why Mozilla buried it's community in such an awful way so it's sooo hard to find? 0_0)

Here are an examples using one site: [Image 1] is Firefox's default 100% zoom. Note the flushed text at the left margin. Ideally, it should look like [Image 2], however, that was zoomed down to 90% where the text body also shrinks along with it and making reading a tad harder. Obviously, not the best solution. [Image 3] is the same site on Safari. [Image 4] is taken from Palemoon. [Image 5] is reddit.com's comment page, again with the unsightly margin problem.

Any ideas how to fix this? Would really appreciate any troubleshooting tips.

I have managed to transform / rotate almost all of my various buttons, bookmark folder icons & site favicons and also other icons like in the appmenu and the locationbar/ac_popup pane various search favicons along the bottom of that panel. (see below code)

However I have been unable to achieve the same with the follow areas: - bookmark/history sidebar. - menubar History and Bookmarks drop down menus & submenus. - locationbar/ac_popup panel site favicons


/*************************/ /* ROTATE ICONS ON HOVER */ /*************************/

  1. nav-bar toolbarbutton:hover > .toolbarbutton-badge-stack,

A week ago I started using a primary password for FF. I learned it by heart, also copied it to my iPhone in a safe notation (I have access to the notation using my finger print). It worked just fine for the first days. Today I tried to use the primary password again, in order to enter a website, but somehow FF denies me entrance, again and again. No spelling issues or missing characters, because I copy the primary password from my iPhone notation and paste it into the primary password field on my Mac. In FF Lockwise (on my iPhone) I can also still see my primary FF password, which is exactly the same. Typing it down character by character doesn’t solve the problem, nor does restarting FF. Caps lock is off. No issues with my keyboard. In my privacy and security setting I cannot to stop FF from asking my primary password, because (of course also there) it won’t recognize the primary password I enter...

There is no one who knows about my primary password nor has anyone access to my computer or iPhone. So there is no way I could explain somebody to have been able to change my primary password. Could anybody please explain to me what might be going on? Did other people experience the same issue? What steps should I take to try to solve it?

And I surely wish not to need to reset my primary password, because I will lose all my saved passwords from FF... Happily I still have access to FF Lockwise on my iPhone (using my finger print). So I could still copy each password and save it somewhere else. But that would mean quite a lot of work. Besides of that I don’t trust it to work better next time I set up a primary FF password…

I hope I explained my problem well enough. Thanks in advance for trying to help me out!
