I love Firefox and have used it for years!

I am working on a Macbook Air, with the latest Big Sur iOS.

Today Firefox was working fine.

Then (in an attempt to use a new software that requires an old version of Firefox) I uninstalled my current Firefox and installed an old version of Firefox. (Side note: the old version of Firefox would not work with the new software's imacros because of Big Sur. So I have installed Parallels so I can run the new software on Windows.)

Soooooooo, I uninstalled the old version of Firefox, and then downloaded the lastest version of Firefox. I installed it as instructed.

Two things are happening:

1. Firefox icons in Applications and in the dock both show as a shortcut. I cannot seem to install a non--shortcut version of Firefox! 2. EVERY time I now open Firefox, it requires me to re-login to Firefox AND reinstall the extensions. Very annoying!

So I know I'm missing something. Not real technie, so any help is appreciated!

Thank you!

I bought a new system with latest OS Big Sur, I'm using Firefox v49.1 (required version) for my official purpose. So I installed this version in my Mac and it works smoothly, suddenly it quits and showing crash alert. I reinstalled again and again, but it's not worked. I fed up with this issue. Please guide me to solve this. Previously I was using Mac with High Sierra OS. That time I haven't face this issue ever.

Hello, I have a long lasting issue of logging in to my Sony PSN account on Firefox on iOS. When I try to log in, following message (in Czech) shows: Připojení k serveru se nepodařilo navázat (18.758f1402.1637667594.2a7e98ef). It translates something like "Connection to the server was not possible to achieve." The issue is confirmed on Mozilla as on Chrome on the same Mac I do not have this problem. Also I can log throu android app, or Mozilla on android. So Mozilla for iOS is the only one causing the issue. Thank ou for looking into it. If necessary I am available for further questioning or help with investigation. Michal

I am getting what seems to be random image or graphical corruption on some images. I first noticed this with a few favicons. Sometimes they would show corrupted, other times they would load properly. I also have now seen it on a webpage as shown in the attached image (percentage counter). The corruption seems to be of the same type, square with patterned lines of color. It seems to be some sort of rendering issue. The same page renders without corruption inside other browsers, so it is Firefox-specific. Any help much appreciated!

duplicate of /questions/1359208 and also moved from Firefox for iOS to Firefox section as you are using Firefox on a Mac.


I have had an Instagram account for many years. Two days ago it stopped coming up when I entered it on the Firefox web site bar. I tried turning off the enhanced tracking protection in the shield but it didn't help. I get Instagram on my iPhone and iPad so it is not a problem with my Instagram account. Why can't I get Instagram anymore on my iMac OS Version 10.14.6 on my Firefox browser?

Hi All - I have FF working well on a Windows PC and a Net Book and have newly installed it on a 2021 Mac Mini. It works fine but when I restart the Mac it has forgotten that I Sync'd FF previously and so has none of my bookmarks or preferences. I can re-sync and everything appears but why is it forgetting between times and what can I do to fix it? Thanks for any advice. Ian.
