Hello,

My Firefox routinely shuts down while I'm using my 2018 Macbook Pro, and the problem began when I updated my IOS to Big Sur This is a systemic problem with non-native apps ever since installing Big Sur. Apple won't address the problem unless I confirm that my non-native apps are compatible with Big Sur. Can you please confirm the most updated version of the Firefox Browser is compatible with Apple's Big Sur IOS? Can you also let me know if other users have experienced problems and if there is any fix?

Chrome has a really fantastic feature called "Tab Groups" - it's pretty self explanatory but it basically allows you to quickly group related sets of tabs.

This is an incredibly useful feature but it seems Firefox hasn't got anything like it.

I've tried a few of the third party add-ons such as Tree-Style-Tabs but they're all over-complicated, take up too much screen real estate or change the way tabs operate.

Is adding simple Tab Grouping functionality on the Firefox roadmap?

If not - has anyone found any good add-ons to replicate the Chrome functionality?

I'm asking if it's possible for Firefox to Not Share USER Personal Data with Google Chrome. I have set all my preferences in Firefox browser to not share, be secure, use private browser, etc. to a the extent possible based on settings. I don't have "location services" turned on on my Mac or Ipad mini and yet some things open up and they know where I am. I feel like I've lost any ability to maintain privacy and that I feel I cannot control it as even setting up settings, I'm aware that some coding only gives impression your safe but in fact YOU ARE NOT!! I am security conceous to a fault and yet I don't feel safe on either device. Can Mozilla/Firefox stop sending user data to Google Chrome to help with keeping privacy user personal data. I saw an article recently that says they are testing .05 of their users to in effect "from MY PERSONAL OPINION" they are stealing this data for them to use WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. Government protections are not kept up to speed and using a computer these days seems to insist that I give up my personal rights to MY DATA. It's ALWAYS MY DATA and not theirs... Using a "any service" does not make it your data but they do have a responsibility to keep it safe and it should not be shared out side MY express consent. It seems we are losing that ability more and more. So I'm asking if Mozilla can stop sharing USER PERSONAL DATA with Google Chrome?

Using a 27" iMac, OS 11.3.1, FF version 88 and 88.0.1, I have seen this issue twice so far and always when the browser viewport is very wide.

Here's a link to a video of what I am seeing: https://cln.sh/0Hh2bV

Here's the enabled extensions I am running: https://cln.sh/p7EYvo

Anyone have any ideas?

Firefox has been doing this to me for the past couple months, but Ill get an annoying notification saying I havent updated firefox, even though firefox is updated. This used to happen on the "nightly" version of firefox everyday, which is expected, but on a normal release, this is not supposed to happen.

How can I fix? This seems to be a bug - one location says its "up to date" the other is a notification telling me to "update".

See attached screenshot with update icon in the menu, while the "About" menu says its up-to-date.

If I go into about:config, app.update.url.manual is set to: https://www.mozilla.org/%LOCALE%/firefox/

I can't figure out how to make the vertical scrollbar actually usable. Firefox works fine on my PC but I also have a new Mac and on that machine the scrollbar is totally unusable on all sites, even with a stylus. I saw a couple posts about creating some custom code for this but I'm not a developer. This can't be only my problem? How do I just make it wider?

hello, i searched a bit and refreshed FF, started in FF in safe mode(currently in safe mode), shifted to work offline then shifted back, as possible solutions. No proxy is selected in network preferences. All that did was make it so whatsmyip.com now says no proxy when it said proxy in use before. it's showing las vegas as my location this time. My real location is hawaii and all my other browsers show this. The "problem" is months old. I have to verify that im not a robot regularly, and certain sites give an error 403, (iirc), but work fine with safari because it isn't using a proxy. Is it possible there is some sort of malware causing this? mac os10.12.6 FF88.0.1 (64bit)

Firefox has been my browser of choice for many years, and over all those years I've had one nagging persistent problem with it that there seems no possible fix for and it will not go away no matter what measures I try. Backpaging takes several attempts to work when it should just work the first time. I've had to try up to 7 times to get back to the previous page, both with the button and my mouse. I know this has been a problem for years for others too, because I searched on it, and Mozilla seems incapable of doing anything about it, or perhaps they are just unwilling to bother with it. Which is it? Do they just not care, or is this beyond their ability to resolve?

Geetest captcha, a captcha program used by many cryptocurrency websites, is not working for me in Firefox. The window loads, but the puzzle image does not display properly, making it impossible to solve. I do not have this problem when using chrome. I have tried many troubleshooting methods including disabling all add-ons and browsing in troubleshooting mode. Any idea what could be going on here?

It would be nice to not have the little resize grabber icon/control in the bottom right corner of the screen when in Responsive Design Mode as it shows in screen shots. It doesn't seem like it is possible to hide it or have it not show in screen shots. Is there a way? If so, how? If not, what is the best way to get a feature request in front of Moz devs?
