Hi, When I turned on my computer this morning, my bookmarks were not there. I've tried the steps laid out by Firefox, but no success. I tried another browser, Safari, which I seldom use, and Safari bookmarks were still there. I have many different bookmarks in Firefox so I'd rather not switch over to Safari unless absolutely necessary. Nothing else is missing, so I doubt if I've been hacked. I did check a bank account, which was fine. I'm not a high profile person, so I doubt if I've been targeted. And I see the pic of the lock closed in the URL bar constantly. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated. I'm on Mac OS 10.15.5 (Catalina) Firefox 78.0.1 (64bit) Thanks, JJ

[Firefox won't accept my master password] From Firefox Help I was told I could try another profile if I had one. Beside the Default Profile I have one in Root Directory and one in Local Directory. Instructions say to use one by clicking LAUNCH PROFILE IN NEW BROWSER. That command does not appear anywhere. ???? IF I could find that command, where could I find the command SET AS DEFAULT PROFILE?

Subject says it all - just about. When I attempt to open one particular website, I enter my userID and password and when screen opens it is not to the website selected but to a screen showing information about Oracle iPlanet Web Site. Cannot find a way to get past this screen. Been accessing this site daily for months without a hitch. A few weeks ago this happened one time. I closed FireFox and reopened and worked as it should . Then yesterday this started again and happens every time. Can access from Safari. Only install one new application recently, TotalAV but that was about 10 days ago.m Will attempt to add screen shot of what I see. The website I am attempting to access is in connection with my employer and I need to access it on at least a weekly basis. Other websites of my employer work fine. Please advise ehw

Hi everyone, I'm having issues with my url/navigation bar and I can't find out how to fix it. I already reinstalled firefox but it didn't change the issue: When I type in a website (or a search) in the url bar, nothing happens when I press enter, I have to manually click on the arrow to get the browser to react. (It works just fine in other browsers). I tried to de- and re-activate all the Address Bar Suggestions in preferences but this also didn't change anything.

Hope there's a solution out there..

All good Simon

I have set various custom shortcuts for all apps on my mac in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts. These are:

  • Ctrl + Opt + Left Arrow - Move Window to Left Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Right Arrow - Move Window to Right Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Up Arrow - Zoom
  • Ctrl + Opt + Down - Move to Built-in Retina Display

These shortcuts work for all other applications on my mac (Catalina 10.15.4), but not with Firefox (version 76.0.1). On the Maximise window where these options reside via mouse, the shortcuts do show up, and pressing the options with a mouse does work, but the shortcuts do not.

Why can't I access, comment on Facebook now with the new upgrade? I'm ready to just delete Firefox and go with Safari, and hopefully never the dreadful Google Chrome.

I need help. I'm certain it's just a checkbox somewhere but I don't have hours to peruse multiple articles and online gibberish to try to find it.

Can someone actually help - Not the standard I tried, this and that, but actual help and definitive direction?

Hi

I have Firefox browser running on macOS Catalina, and I noticed that I do not get any desktop notifications (e.g. new Telegram messages) when I watch youtube or netflix on fullscreen. Is there a setting or extension I need in order to enable this?

I have tried this on all other browsers, and only Firefox has this issue.

I searched the forums, but was not able to find anyone who has encountered the same issue as me.

Thanks

Pictures are not rendering when I click on news links in Yahoo. I'm on a MacBook Pro, so I opened Safari browser to see if I had the same problem - I do not. Safari renders pictures... I also tried the fix I read about to go into blank:config, and double click on Domain.next_gen to make it false.... didn't work... what else can I try?

Thanks for any suggestions...
