Hello everyone, When starting up Firefox v100 on OSX, two "password required" windows open immediately in a row to ask for my primary password. I type my password in the prompt window on top (appearing last) which works fine and closes. Then the second window (which appeared first) gets behind the firefox main window and I can't neither access the password prompt window nor use the main window. The problem started today after the firefox update on this computer and remains the same if I try to restart Firefox. I had a similar issue on a different computer but it was not systematic and restarting Firefox would be enough to fix the problem.

Please any help ? (I can't share troubleshooting information as I cant click in the window to export it.

Background: I am on the Beta track, currently running 98.0b4 on Mac OSX 11.6.1, until kinks are worked out of Monterey.

Issue: One of the latest FF upgrades has killed my ability to login to Netflix. I get an orange popup field stating "Incorrect password. Please try again or you can reset your password." The password is fine, as I'm able to login using my backup browsers, Safari and Vivaldi. The issue persists when I try to log in using a private window that doesn't allow any add-ons, so I don't see that as the issue.

Firefox is still my preferred and default browser, so I'd like to see this resolved before.

macOS. Firefox is running. I enter: open -a Firefox --args -private-window "https://apple.com" (in Terminal or Automator) which I believe should open apple.com in a new private window, but although the focus change to the already open Firefox window, a new private window does not open. It does work (apple.com opens in a new private window) if Firefox is not already running, but I thought the -private-window argument is supposed to open a new private window whether Firefox is already running or not. What have I got wrong?

A customer shared his Firefox login with me to share his passwords. I logged in with his account, downloaded his passwords and logged out directly afterwards, but now he is reporting that he has ALL my passwords. How can undo this? I never gave him access to my account and I never clicked on sync or something?

I've read all the articles here about importing my passwords and history, but the Import Wizard is ONLY giving me the option to import my bookmarks. Even if I can't get the browsing history I need to be able to migrate my (extensive) password list.

I've exported my Safari passwords as a .csv file, but there doesn't seem to be an option to import a .csv file.

The page here regarding it says the feature is 'disabled by default' but does not say it's unavailable and I can't find clear instructions for how to activate the feature so that I can import my passwords. Can anybody help?

Hi,

I recently updated Mozilla browser for Mac today (version 99.0.1, 64-Bit on April 13, 2022). And now I can not switch between my Gmail accounts that I am signed into (from the top right icon, switch accounts) all it does is load and bring me back to the default account I have set up. It is a bit frustrating since I have to manually log back in everytime and it was so seamless before.

Any help is appreciated.

Hi, I am trying to fill out a PDF, but no matter how I save it (tried file save as, print as pdf, and the little folder icon) it will not save. This has been a reoccurring issue for the past few days, it usually gets fixed by restarting firefox, but the issue always pops up again. Is there anything that can be done to fix this without having to close firefox? Thanks.

Hi,

I cannot find a way to turn off/disable the "AutoFill" setting... it keeps on revealing my email addresses before I've typed them out.

I'm not a fan of these security breeches. Firefox is giving the wrong info online about disabling this feature because each time I try to disable in preferences/privacy... there is no "dropdown menu" whatsoever.

Any help on this matter will be most appreciated.

When I go to https://squareup.com/login the entry fields do not appear in Firefox. It's impossible for me to access my Square account through Firefox currently, which I use for client invoicing. I have no trouble logging in through Chrome. Screenshot attached.

I have Privacy Badger and AdBlock installed for both browsers. I tried disabling them for Firefox just to see if that was the issue, but it made no difference. I am using an iMac running macOS Catalina version 10.15.7. My Firefox Browser is version 97.0.1, and currently shows that it's up to date. My Chrome browser is version 98.0.4758.109, also up to date.

Obviously people have asked this before, but those threads all seem to be closed now. The idea that a browser would not want to have a consistent UI with every other part of the operating system is absolutely nuts, so why is it not easier (or even automatic?!) to place the 'close tab' button on the left when running on a Mac operating system?

I have tried the solutions recommended here – https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1253751 – but without any success. Maybe someone could help me understand what I am doing wrong? Better yet, maybe Mozilla could remove the need for such workarounds and implement what ought to be a standard feature?
