I turned off the translator popup via about:config and browser.translations.automaticallyPopup to false. Now translation is gone. How can I keep the option to quickly translate a page in the address bar without having the popup jump in my face each time I open a new tab, forcing me to click it to make it go away? This would be a nice option but an extremely distracting presentation. thanks.

Suggestion from Browsing History should not include "Base URL"

Hi all Firefoxers,

There are a few sites that I always access via a URL that could look like :

https://device.domain.com/admin/

When I went to visit that device, typing in the URL bar "device.domain..." , Firefox's 1st default suggestion shows as https://device.domain.com/

The problem is that I never visited that site, the way to access this device is https://device.domain.com/admin/ - there's no way to reconfigure the device and have an auto-redirect to .../admin location.

https://device.domain.com/ is not in my Browsing History nor do I have an open-tab. In the settings Privacy->Address Bar, disabling "Browsing History" removes https://device.domain.com/ from the suggestion list but it also removes all suggestion from the history. This is the expected behavior, the bug required fix isn't related to this.

If the "Base URL" isn't saved in the Browsing History, how can someone tell Firefox to only suggest absolute entries from the history?

For several weeks now, whenever I close Firefox and shut down my iMac and open Gmail the next day, Gmail seems to forget which emails I have already read, and it marks many old emails as unread. Deleting the Google cache and cookies helps, but only temporarily. This problem doesn't seem to occur when using a different browser, such as Safari, or when using the built-in MacOS email client. Therefore, I'm thinking it's a buggy interaction between Firefox and Gmail. I didn't used to have this problem, so perhaps it's related to a Firefox update? Anyhow, I'm hoping someone can help. Thanks!

I no longer see a preview of photos on Google Photos on the new version of Firefox (122.0.1) in either the main window (see first image), or the file itself (see second image with broken file icon). In the latter I just get a spinning wheel. Do I need to change a setting in Firefox?

I'm trying to install & use Firefox as my browser of choice on this new computer. Using the migration assistant, Firefox seemed to transfer to the new computer with no problem, except that it did not work. Neither does, apparently a new installation directly on the Mac Mini. Any suggestions? I do prefer to remain with the new operating system if possible

Thanks,

I turned off my Mac Mini 2 last night, February 7, and when I turned it on this morning, all my Firefox bookmarks were gone.

Everything else is fine (Chrome bookmarks, which are different from those in Firefox, remain intact). And yes, I should have known better, but since when a Firefox update deletes all bookmarks?

I'm guessing that is the reason, because everything else is intact.

Any suggestions as to whether there is ANY way to recover them?

Thanks!

Why is it that after the latest update, Pocket returns every time I boot the browser, across all of my devices? This cannot be a coincidence. I am literally having to disable it every time. Mozilla, if you are smart, you will choose not to go in the direction of Google. You already don't have much of a user base and you don't want to lose what you do have left. This is disappointing and you've pretty much guaranteed I'm not using Firefox anymore.

I have used https: www.united. com on Firefox before. I can log into united and use all features except when clicking on Book then Flights only. Normally it goes to a search page to enter airports, dates, etc etc. It did work on Firefox but just very recently it loads into that particular site but then goes to a blank white page. I attempted to use this feature on Google to check and it works fine. Any thoughts?

No idea if this is happening to anyone else:

When I use Dropbox for web on Firefox on a new Macbook pro, every so often the screen will completely glitch out and you can't really do anything on Dropbox. By glitch out I mean the screen just becomes really shaky, like non stop shaking back and forth and you can't click anything or navigate at all.

Anyone have any idea why this is happening, video here for reference:

Video play problem on Mac Current Firefox version fails to play videos on my Mac (OS 14.2.1). When I click play on a video on any website, the video is extremely slow to start, then immediately stalls for several minutes at a time. My internet connection isn't the issue I'm getting over 650 MBS. I assume the problem is with Firefox, because both Safari and Opera play videos just fine.
