Mu weather channel will no load on my Mac's front page since yesterday. I receive the following after it tries to load for about a minute. "Sorry! We are temporarily unable to load the content. Please refresh or try again later." Is this a Firefox or yahoo problem? How do I get it back?

Firefox has been having this on-again, off again problem with printing pages from the Net. It was doing this a couple of months ago for about a month (!!!) and then evidently fixed itself long after I tried all the Troubleshooting suggestions ( re-booting Firefox, emptying the cache, going into Firefox's print.print command center to try to fix things), none of which worked. And now it's doing it again. And yes, I've already tried all the Troubleshooting suggestions all over again, and nothing from any of that is working. Now, I use Amazon and PayPal a lot, so this is especially aggravating. Here is what is happening:

 On a webpage, I'll tap the Print icon on the page. I then have to wait about 1 minute and 30 seconds for the pop-up Print command window to appear. After tapping the Print button on the pop-up window, I then have to wait another 30 seconds for the printer to finally get the message to start printing. It does this every single time I want to print anything, and it doesn't seem to matter what internet page I'm on.
 It's not the printer (A Brother MFC-J485DW). I've tried using another browser for some of this and the other browser (Safari, in this case) works fine with the print commands and there's no delay.
Is it my operating system?  MacOS Sierra 10.12.6.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have installed the Evernote Web Clipper add-on but it is not showing upper right menu bar of my browser. I have the latest versions of both Firefox and Evernote Web Clipper. I've checked in the add-on preferences that the add-on is turned but it still does not show up in my menu bar and I therefore have no way of using the add-on. Does anyone know if Evernote Web Clipper is having issues and if so how to resolve them?

I recently uploaded macOS Big Sur onto my MacBook Air. At that point, my Firefox turned into a question mark on the tool bar and I have to sign in to Firefox Sync whenever I click on the question mark (which then becomes the Firefox symbol). Meanwhile, I clicked a link in an email, and this led to a second Firefox showing up in my toolbar. Both are Firefox browser 83.0, 64-bit, but the second one doesn't require signing in. However, the first one (the Sync) did retain my bookmarks. What is going on? And what do I do to just have one version of Firefox, preferably one that retains my bookmarks? Thanks for any advice!

Hi Mozilla community,

I have the Firefox Multi-Accounts Containers addon installed and configured to use separate containers for different critical websites.

I've observed however that Firefox doesn't automatically load subdomains in the same container set for the main domain.

Example:

Container set for https://domain.com Domains https://www.domain.com and https://domain.com/us are not recognised to load under the container for domain.com. I have to manually set every single subdomain to also load in the same container.

Theres no way I've found to do this automatically.

All help, comments and feature request welcome in this regards.

Thank you all! Joan.

Hi, I have a large number of add-ons so I took them away from the tool-bar and moved them to the global menu through the Personalize menu in Firefox when clicking on the 3 bars at the right hand side of my tool bar.

I was wondering if they are still active? I'm thinking of add-ons like Facebook container, Httpeverywhere, Privacy Badger, ublock origin and the likes.

Thanks !

Since I installed Firefox 82 (on Mac OS 10.14) when I'm filling in an online form FF jumps away from the page and brings up an error message telling me that the form is no longer available. Huh? I can use the "Try again" button and it takes me back to the form, but might have lost some of my entries. This happened several times when I was entering data for a bank transfer and has just happened again when I was ordering something online. I've now installed FF 83 but have the same problem. I use only 2 extensions: 1 Password and Privacy Pass. Thank you in anticipation of helping me sort this out.

Hello, My problem is when I did the lastest FireFox update on 11/21/20, YouTube video's will not play on FireFox, even with the accelerated hardware un-checked, and even in Safe Mode. However - YouTube "does" work just fine on Google Chrome.

My system: MBP, High Sierra, using FireFox version: 83.0 (64-bit). What Ive done so far: Ive shut off the ad-blocker, the accelerated hardware is always off, went into Safe Mode and still the vids wont play. YouTube video's play perfectly fine in Google Chrome.

FireFox: I can watch movies on Amazon Prime with no problems. Its just a YouTube problem.

Thanks very much for your sage advice.

Hey all, I've encountered a strange behavior with Firefox 83 under macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 where if I have desktop notifications enabled for YouTube enabled, I'll get duplicate notifications. For example, If I have one notification waiting from YouTube when launching Firefox, I'll see it twice when opening notification center. This doesn't happen, if Firefox is running and notifications come in, and it only happens with YouTube.

Also, This didn't seem to be a problem on Firefox 82.0.3 when I initially upgraded to Big Sur. It seems to have started with version 83.

I have completely deleted all firefox data and settings, and started fresh to confirm it wasn't corrupted settings, and it doesn't appear to be. I also asked about this in #Firefox on freenode, but after a couple hours of waiting never got an answer: so trying here today.

I've also searched, and no one else seems to have reported this issue, other than me. Is this a known issue, or am I the first? Also, is there anything I can do outside waiting for a firefox update / big sure updates? For now, I have disabled desktop notifications in YouTube settings as that's the only problem site I'm experiencing. This seems to be a firefox, and Youtube specific issue, as the latest version of Chrome is also set to deliver me notifications, and those work correctly, as well as do all other notifications, both system, and app.

If there is anything I can do to resolve this, please let me know.

Thanks

YNAB is a personal finance budgeting system that I have used instead of Quicken for the past 10 years. Recently I updated my YNAB functionality from downloaded YNAB4 to server-based subscription nYNAB, which hasn't been equipped with all features for Safari, but is super-equipped (via TookKit developers) in Firefox. When I use Command Key to select multiple transactions in nYNAB, and then use the 2-finger scroll function on trackpad to find more below the visible range, the frame zooms out to infinitesimally small font, obviously making the font too small to recognize characters. Recovering previous font is tedious at best and frustrating to waste time and risks a loss of task concentration. The referenced Support Page doesn't even mention this action. This action does not occur in Safari, by the way, nor do I believe it is unique to nYNAB when using Firefox.

Please kill this apparently inadvertent Zoom action and substitute a MacTrackpad-friendly shortcut in next release. Thank you.

I use Firefox Developer Edition (84.0b4) on macOS and pretty much never restart Firefox. Because of this I frequently miss updates. Chrome shows an update badge on the menu icon in the toolbar.

Is this built into Firefox aswell? I couldn't find anything like this and there doesn't seem to be an addon for this either.

Hi, my Firefox Menu bar always randomly stops responding... the "Apple" Menu & the "Firefox" Menu (About, Prefs., Hide/Show, Quit both still work, but not the rest of the Firefox menus (File, Edit, View, History, Bookmarks, Tools, Window, Help)... those randomly become unresponsive, then total stop when using Firefox...)

Is there a setting in Firefox, or is there a way using Apple's Activity Monitor, or a Terminal command to force a restart of the Menu bars? this is getting very annoying LOL

I have been trying to install Firefox on a Windows computer running Windows 10 Pro. I have two users on the computer. I have installed Firefox successfully on the main user but every time I try to install for the second user, it does not install. it says it failed and leaves a strange icon on the desktop which, when I click, it deletes the file. I am not sure why. I have installed the same on 11 other computers with two users and no problem with those ones.

The Firefox Relay website has a link to a survey for users. I was unable to submit the survey in any browser (firefox, chrome, or safari) .

It kept flagging an error that I hadn't filled out the last question (which browsers I use on a regular basis.) even though it was filled out.

Anyway thought you all might want to know in case you haven't been getting survey responses.

Four times now I lost all the tabs I had been saving in Firefox. No explanation, and no apparent way to recover them. Why does this happen? Is there a way to recover them? I don't have this problem with other browsers. Very frustrating, because some are regularly used references. Some are hard to recall from scratch once they are suddenly gone.

(Crazy how I had to Google "How to post on Firefox forum" to post this. Anyway.)

My Top sites are not showing icons in some random cases (screenshot 1), and I can't understand what cases.

By default, the icons will show the first letter of the website name, i.e. "G" for Google Sheets, Google Forums, Google Drive etc. This is nearly useless, so I'm trying to add icons by linking the tiles to image files online (screenshot 2 shows WIX). However, some of them will show, some others won't.

I assume it has to do with the source of the image, whether it's official or not, but this still makes little sense. And if I add the website URL there instead of an image, it'll show me the full page in the icon, which wouldn't make sense to me.

How could I solve this?

Thank you
