Firefox 91

See screenshot.

I've been a Firefox user since the days of 2.0. I know what DuckDuckGo is, what search is, what it does and how to use it. I've set this search engine up myself! I don't need a tutorial.

How can I disable this misfeature?

Thanks, Alex

Dear Mozilla volunteer! I recently experience regular crashes of FireFox version 94.02 under MacOS Monterey. I have removed some add-ons and also "probleemoplossingsmodus" did not help. Furthermore I uploaded various crashreports.

Where can I find help to solve this problem? Or is MacOS 12.01 the culprit and do I have to wait for an update from Apple?

Thanks for tour reaction! Kind regards, Miel van Hutten The Netherlands

Firefox is crashing when using Google MapsStreet Views and when a 3-D picture is loaded in Facebook.

When running in Safe Mode, Google Street Views will function and a Facebook page with '3-D' picture won't crash the browser. This started with the last couple of updates - we're using version 94.0.2 64bit. We check with Safari

After receiving an email about lockwise absorption, I thought I would try changing my firefox account password. Mainly that was because I do not see any other way to log into another mac system without it. I can sync an ios device with the qr code scan but not another mac system.

So from the account profile I went to Change Password and changed the password to some new securely generated password.

Now in my saved passwords, I see that the new password is saved for "(no username)" account and the old password is still there for my user name.

But when I try to log into FF browser on another mac system with my user name, neither password works. They are both "incorrect".

11.27.21

iMac - OS10.11.6 El Capitan - Firefox 78.15

I have spent hours searching internet and Mozilla support. Nothing. All I want to do is switch my sign in accounts. I have two. Firefox confirms this. When I go into Accounts, following existing procedures to establish a second sign in, I type in second email with response telling me this account already exists. I know that. I can even see it in the Passwords/Accounts section.

But nothing, nothing appears anywhere telling me how I can simply switch from existing sign in to the other. Nothing.

If anyone at Firefox would care to explain the secret, I would appreciate it so I can stop wasting time searching this solution.

Don't use euphemisms like some instructions do which only confuse simple answers. Please simply state Step 1, Step 2 etc

One such support page said something like select one account and click "Preferred" or the like. Saw nothing like this in my Account settings.

thanks Larry

Hello everyone

I recently used i2p, and installed the i2p plugin in my Firefox. He broke a lot of settings for me (related to privacy, I think). Interestingly, it broke on all my desktop devices (macbook, iMac, windows pc). After installing and removing the plugin, the following happened: - websites open in English (native to the system - Russian) - websites open in a light theme (native to the system - dark) - Firefox starts in a window not on the full screen (for the inability to track the screen resolution, I understand) - [the most important] interfaces, some web applications began to look blurry (e.g., Google sheets, or Yandex Maps). When I open the same services in Google Chrome, everything is displayed perfectly.

How do I clean the browser settings that came with the i2p plugin?

I've already tried: - Cleaning Firefox - Safe mode - Clearing the startup cache - Complete reinstallation

None of this helped.

I love Firefox, I don't want to switch to Chrome. Help, please)

I'm using Firefox on a 2021 Macbook Pro (the one with the notch) and I've noticed that when I'm in full screen mode and I navigate to the Mac menu bar, the Firefox tab menu drops down. This wasn't a problem on my old Mac, since it allowed for the Mac menu to drop down, but since the menu has been moved to the top of the screen on either side of the notch on the new Macbook Pro, it's unncessary and bothersome. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this from happening?

Whenever I am viewing a PDF and wish to download it or save a file from firefox, the save dialogue of the finder and where to save it does not appear. Only the initial firefox option of "Open file" or Save As dialogue appears. Once pressing Save As, nothing else happens. Furthermore when simply pressing Cmd + S to save the PDF no dialouge appears. When typing this message and attempting to add an image of a screenshot, once again the finder dialogue to select a file does not appear.

Is this a mac issue or firefox problem? I am running Mac OS 12.0.1 Monterey.

I am experiencing a problem with lockwise since months. In just few words I cannot see which password are stored and therefore I cannot even edit them (see the pict). The funny part is that the login/passwords data are there because I can use them after landing on any page where I have an account. That's to say that the only way I have to edit a password that I changed on a different browser is to visit the page and then change it. Another few examples? 1) If I enter in the search box any of the sites that should be (and indeed are) there, it cannot retrieve anything. 2) If I click insert new credential it does nothing (no box where to insert the new data)

Note! Browser update 94.0.2 (Mac) Logged in my FF account and Sync activated.

Hello You Lovely People,

I am so frustrated...for years, my Firefox Browser has worked flawlessly. I love all the feature and hate to switch to the dark side.

The two primary frustrations are as follows:

1. I have placed my settings to "Auto Populate" my email address line and password fields. The password auto populates w/o problem but the email field will not. I have reloaded the Firefox and checked and double checked the settings and since one half works and the 2nd does not, I feel the error is not mine.

I'd would love any suggestions

2. When entering text on the "Subject Line" for an email, let's suppose I enter: "Good" , hit the space bar to add "Morning"...the cursor moves back to the beginning of the line and inserts "Morning" in front of "Good". Then I am forced to add spaces and redo the Subject I had intended.

This is clearly nothing to do with me...it's just broken.

I have this problem across all my devices, excluding the iPhone as it's not Firefox, it's an Apple App. The Chrome, and Safari browsers do not have either of these issues.

I am a dedicated Apple user so all my laptops and desktops are Apple.

I thank you all and look forward to any ideas!!

Happy Holidays

Testing ConvertKit integrations with my Squarespace site across multiple browsers. Firefox (v94.0.2) doesn't show the embedded ConvertKit form in the footer. I also have the ConvertKit form embedded in a sidebar, and while Firefox shows that form, it doesn't initiate the correct response (a 'thank you' that shows up on the sidebar when someone signs up); instead it pops open a new browser window with the thank you message.

I uploaded 2 images; one shows how the form should act on the sidebar after subscribing (screenshot from using Chrome) and the other shows how Firefox handles the subscribe. The Chrome screenshot shows Sign Up For Our Newsletter and a Success! message below it. The Firefox image shows that the form response takes me to another web page with multiple messages.

Any ideas what's up? should I advise visitors to the website that the form does not display correctly on Firefox?

Thanks -

Log in accepts email and password, then sends authorization code, but when code is entered screen refreshes to display "Incorrect password" and strangely changes the correct email address to an old address that has never been associated with this brand new MacBook Pro.

Note: the old email address was previously used with my Firefox Sync account years ago, but was changed.

Same result replicated several times.

I remain logged in on other devices. Only the new MacBook Pro has this issue.

Hey guys.

My question is very simple: how can I hide the Firefox 94 address bar on any screen size, including full screen?

I have been searching the internet for an answer, even in previous versions, the answers and suggestions were never clear. Including nonsense add-ons.

Is there any placement of moz://a? Does anyone have a tip that might actually work?

Thank you very much.
