I am using Firefox 90.0.2 (64-bit) on a iMac decktop running mac OS Big Sur Version 11.5 When I am in a particular website and I am accessing different aspects of the website and I get the following message: "400 Bad request Your browser sent an invalid request" What is happening? When I access the same website on Safari and go to do the same things, it operates fully. What is happening?

I kept restarting the firefox browser or restarting my computer, trying to make it my default browser. I have lost on how many times I kept trying. But no matter what I do, it still continued to have Safari as default browser. Even when I did the system preferences of having Firefox being its default browser, it still didn't work. Either there's a bug or something else. I need to know how to fix this or I will lose my mind..how can I make it default if it won't let me.

When going to a site with FF, 90 which has partial secure information FF still allows access even though the site is not completely https. this should not be allowed HTTPS only should work if the site is completely compliant with HTTPS.

The example site is https://www.brampton.ca//en/online-services/pages/bramcams.aspx

If you click on one of the camera images with "https mode in all windows only" set, no image is displayed and the icon suggest HTTPS but the site is only partial https.

With "https mode in all windows" no configured you get the secure lock icon with the exclamation. see enclosed.

Using Firefox on a iMac, and the display randomly zooms in when the only input is moving the wireless mouse to the right slightly. I have found no way to return to the normal display without closing out of the Firefox browser, and re-opening. Zoom may be nice for somebody, but never when their is no apparent means to return to the normal display after it was inadvertently triggered for some unknown reason. This is annoying enough to consider utilizing a different browser......

J'ai deux problèmes avec mon Firefox sur Mac Big Sur. 1) La version anglaise m'est imposée. Lorsque je veux mettre le français en première ligne sur Préférences systèmes, la modification n'est pas enregistrée. 2) Il m'est demandé une Capture d'écran par un de mes correspondants. Impossible de trouver une ligne à cliquer dans le menu. Je signale que j'ai aussi Safari et que tout va bien sur ce moteur.

Patreon doesn't load and only shows a blank screen on Firefox on Mac, also problems with Twitch and Netflix

I'm on a brand-new macbook pro with M1 chip and have had trouble with firefox since day 1.

Many websites point-blank don't work. the crown currently is taken by patreon, which only shows me a white/blank screen after auto-loggin. I could access the site when I was not yet logged in, but every since I logged into my account: blank page. and it's not like I can log out on a blank screen. also, since patreon needs you to be logged into to access the content...

other annoying things: Netflix sends me an error message after loading, so I can't watch anything on firefox. It worked fine for like 1 day after I got the new macbook, then it stopped and I had to switch to safari to watch anything.

on Twitch, I can view, but the message input for the chat is just gone, the chat is there, I just don't have any way to type anything myself, though I am logged in and everything. again, switching to safari, it's back and I can interact in chat just fine.

I have firefox version 90.0.2 running. Mac OS Big Sur 11.4 is the operating system.

Hey All,

With the latest update of Firefox, some pages are loading but not showing contents after finishing the loading process. The result is an empty page showing the background color of the page itself.

Example page: https://safelaunch.io/safe-allocation

I am using the latest version of Firefox (90.0.1) on a Mac with macOS Big Sur 11.4.

I am facing the same issue with my iPhone!!

Using Chrome on my MacBook does not cause any issues (Safari has the same problem!).

Thanks for your support!

Cheers, Patrick

On my macbook [macOS Big Sur 11.4 ] in firefox [version 89.0.2 (64-bit)] all pages will zoom in or out whenever I hold down the shift key and swipe up or down on my trackpad. This is really annoying. How do I fix this?

( I really use the CTRL+SHIFT+TAB shortcut to navigate tabs and it becomes problematic very quickly)

I could find the solution for fixing it for [[CTRL+SCROLL (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194305) |CTRL+SCROLL (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194305) ]]but couldn't find for SHIFT+SCROLL.

Hi guys,

I've been trying for a couple weeks to make the switch from Chrome on Big Sur but am having trouble ironing a few things out. I work in research and view a ton of pdfs, so I like them to (1) open in browser, and (2) specifically, open in a new tab. I haven't been able to get Firefox to do these things.

For (1), I get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" every time I download a pdf from Researchgate (even the same exact pdf). I select the options in the image ("open with Firefox (default)" and "do this every time." But it shows me the popup every time. I've gone to Preferences->Applications->PDFs->Open in Firefox but the behavior persists.

For (2), I'm at a loss - when I open downloaded pdfs, they always open in a new window. I don't even know if it's possible to get them to open in a new tab, but it would be nice and save me a lot of time.

Thanks in advance if anyone can point me in the right direction!

Whenever I execute a google search on my Firefox browser (for Mac), the links of the search results do not work, even if I choose to open in a new tab. They work just fine with my other two browsers (Chrome & Safari). This is annoying because Firefox is my preferred browser.
