After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

I keep my Bookmarks Sidebar open. It works properly for a few minutes and then it doesn't. The behavior it shows is as follows.

1. It quits scrolling. I have to click the web page and go back to the sidebar to scroll again. 2. It scrambles the bookmarks when I click one. 3. When I click one bookmark it opens some other one.

Basically it acts crazy. The one fix I have found is when it is acting up and I close and reopen the sidebar it starts working properly again for a while. Then the problems repeats until I close and reopen the sidebar.

Firefox will not work with Farmers.com(insurance) website. The site will not let me login. When I hit login it just 'flashes' and the page remains the same. I am using FF 85.0.2 and an Imac running High Sierra 10.13.6. I was told by the Farmers tech person that there is no problem on their end. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Is there a way to import 'CLIQZ' bookmarks? Cliqz has been discontinued and no longer supported. I have been using it for several years and want to import its bookmarks to Firefox so I don't have big job of replicating. Because Mozilla and Cliqz were affiliated I thought there might be some method to do this but can't find a way in Firefox help file. Is there a way to do this so I can go back to using Firefox?

I am having a problem specifically with PNC's website. FF 85.0.2, Mac OS.

I can get to landing page. After attempting to login, it shows this message:

"Please try using another internet browser. If you still receive this message, please call the Customer Care Center at 1-800-762-2035 and reference code: 18.84386368.1613484239.62933e90"

I can get the site to load in other browsers, and on my work computer (Same build FF, but Windows 10)

Attempted fixes: Turn on Safe mode Delete cookies, browsing history, cache Uninstall Norton Anti-Virus Refresh profile Forget about this site (which I have FF set up to delete cookies, history, cache on close, but manually re-enabled history and tried this as well) Attempt to browse with Private Mode Off, all tracking settings off

I have thought about uninstall/re install but if my profile is the problem, don't know if this will fix it.

Installed plugins noted.

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to (website).com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details...

So my question is, would attackers be able to steal such information if i never enter any? ie, if i only visit the site to read about things...

I've used Firefox forever, however in the last couple weeks, I can no longer use eBay as the webiste looks weird and my account is inaccessible. (See attachment.)

I've cleared all history/caches/etc. per forum suggestions. No change. So now to use eBay, I have to switch to Safari or Chrome (which I rarely use.)

Using new 2020 Macbook Pro and latest Firefox 80.0 update. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Will Mozilla implement MIDI for musical instruments? I went to sign up to the Yamaha Soundmondo web site and immediately upon landing on the web site I got this message (on the far right- SYNCH Web MIDI not suported Please Use Chrome) and took a screen shot of it. It wants me to download Chrome. There is no way on earth I am installing Chrome on any of my devices. Google knows far too much already. Any way to let Mozilla know Firefox needs this capability? I can’t be the only musician using Firefox.

Thanks,

The normal way to delete a bookmark is to click the bookmark (which loads the page), then click the three dots on the right of the url field after the page loads, then click the "edit this bookmark" icon, then select "remove bookmark". But a 404 redirect does not land on the bookmarked page and there is no "edit this bookmark" icon.

How do I delete a bookmark to a page that no longer loads? I want to keep other bookmarks intact.
