Long time listener, first time caller... :) [Seriously have been using and loving Firefox/Mozilla since 2004-2005, before that was Netscape Navigator, this is the first time I can recall having an issue that I can't find already written up and solved. Hence, this post.]

I've been having some odd issues with Firefox (85.0.2 64-bit) on my Intel Mac (Big Sur 11.2.1) for the past few months, and this morning decided to dig in deeper.

The backstory: When I’ve wanted to copy and image and paste it into Apple Messages, the images sometimes don’t send because Messages doesn’t support TIFF, WEBP, or PNG formats when sending to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account (aka using standard MMS like to Android phones). So, I then have to convert the failed image to JPG, delete the failed message, and drag the saved JPG image file into Messages and can then resend it.

The issue: Today, I discovered that when I copy a JPG image from Firefox, and paste it into Apple messages, it seems that it doesn’t send because it appears to be either copied or pasted as a different format than the original image?

To reproduce:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “View Image Info”
  3. Right-Click on the JPEG image and select “Copy Image”
  4. Paste into Messages to send to someone who doesn’t have an iMessage account
  5. Hit enter to send
  6. Wait a few seconds for failure
  7. Click on failure Info
  8. Right-Click on image and select Open
  9. Preview shows the file as TIFF not JPG

To simplify:

  1. Go to a web site with a JPG image ( http://www.lunarbaboon.com for example)
  2. Right-Click on the JPEG image ( comicorder038.jpg for example) and select “Copy Image”
  3. Open Preview and select “New from Clipboard”
  4. Select “Tools -> Show Inspector”
  5. Preview shows the file as PNG not JPG

What I’ve tried: Copy & paste of same image from Firefox - Safe Mode fails - So, doubt it is something in my Firefox config Copy & paste of same image from Safari works - So, doubt it is something MacOS related However, copy & paste of same image from Chrome fails too - So, maybe it is something MacOS related?

Any suggestions on what to try next?

I have Firefox 78.7.1 on my Mac. For some reason, the Top Sites and Highlights are not displaying on my home Page or on each new Tab. I have tried adding sites and they won't be added. I have restarted Firefox in Safe Mode and in Refresh mode - made no difference. I have made sure all the correct boxes are clicked in Preferences - General, Home and Private/Security. Where to next?

Hi. Has anyone ever had this problem where Firefox suddenly does not work even after reinstalling it?

I updated my Nvidia drivers to 461.40 and when I opened Firefox, it just came up with a blank white window.

I tried entering Safe mode by holding down the Shift button and opening it again but it just hung on the safe mode window that comes up. Tried pressing the buttons but nothing happened.

I thought it must have been the Nvidia update that's done this but I rolled back to the previous version and now Firefox won't even open. It just shows up as a process in task manager.

I've uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Am I missing something?

Is there something in the old profiles that's preventing Firefox to open again?

I believe I was using Firefox 86, running Windows 10 Home.

I'm not sure exactly where this question should go, so apologies if I picked the wrong category. As far as I can tell, it fits into 'other problems': So I was getting an 'unresponsive script on page, do you want to stop it' dialogue for a Facebook page I frequent. Got sick of telling FF to stop the script every time, so I checked the 'do not ask again' box, hoping it would automatically just stop the script whenever it became a problem. Well, it's working a little too well. Now the page loads zero content. I'm just wondering how to 'undo' checking that box. Is there maybe a line in about:config I can look for, some setting I can adjust, to reset the 'do not ask again' option on 'stop unresponsive script' dialogues? Thanks in advance for any help!

Hello, I have a small issue. A while back I tweaked the settings and prefs of about:config, and in that, I forced Firefox to always automatically access every site with HTTPS instead of HTTP. I did this as an added security feature for a friend, but that was a while ago. Now, I have noticed that she can't acess her e-mail, or a lot of other sites.I already reset firefox, but all that did was reset the exceptions, now its asking for an exception everytime. But thats not the problem even IF I add the exception, the entire Yahoo site messes up. ALL graphics and everything are disabled. All you see is raw Text data and hyperlinks that are all broken. It works fine if I access another browser and it connects normally. But no matter what, it keeps trying to connect HTTPS. I don't really remember what settings I changed, and I would like to revert it back. Any help would be appreciated.

Ever since upgrading to FF 26 I can't play video on YouTube or many other sites. It says "You need to upgrade your Adobe Flash Player to watch this video. Download it from Adobe."

So I click on the link which takes me to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/, do the install which goes without trouble.

But afterwards I get the same message when I try to play videos.

Running Windows 7 on a Desktop PC. Having NO problems playing videos in IE or Chrome. FF used to be great but it's becoming more trouble than it's worth.

Thanks in advance.
