This is a very recent issue for me. A couple of days ago "tel:" links stopped functioning. I click on a callable link and nothing happens. I checked default applications, and tel: isn't even listed there. The first time it happened there was a dialogue box asking me what application to use, but after that nothing opened at all. I build and monitor websites, so I'm constantly checking these links for functionality.

Impossible to create a shortcut of a web-page on desktop or a folder by drag-&-drop on Mac

Hi, I'm having this very annoying problem with Firefox (v109.9) on my MAC (macBook Pro 2020 - macOS Monterey v12.6). I used to do this (and actually still successfully doing it, on another MAC machine) to create a web page shortcut on the desktop or in a folder, by drag and drop, but it's impossible for me to do it on this machine and I can't figure out what could be the problem.

After clicking on the padlock icon, to the left of the address bar, I can easily drag it to the destination I prefer (eg a folder) but when I release the mouse button the operation doesn't work. Unlike what happens in the other MAC machine, doing the same operation, the button does not turn into the green "+" icon and suddenly disappears, without doing anything and without giving me any warning.

I've tried reading suggestions on the web, but haven't found anything that really gives me a solution. Could it be one of my browser's security settings? Please, please, could you help me? I need this feature very often, so if I don't fix this soon I will be forced to switch browsers.

Thank you very much for you attention! Lu

Firefox keeps suggesting Twitter when I type "tw" no matter what I do

Every time I want to go to twitch.tv and type "tw" in the address bar, Twitter is the first suggestion. I don't want to go to Twitter. I've followed all the instructions in this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions#firefox:mac:fx109 and still the problem persists.

When I use shift delete, it does remove the suggestion, but then as soon as I add an i (making "twi"), Twitter is back at the top again. I've deleted every instance of Twitter in my history/cookies/cache and it keeps doing this.

Why can't Firefox prioritize a website I visit daily and have several bookmarks of (Twitch) over promoting a website I do not want to visit? Please fix this.

Hello,

A few weeks ago something changed in my Firefox browser where popup boxes do not show. For example, if I want to download a file, the pop-up box with the options for downloading do not show. If I want to attach or upload a file, the popup does not show. Even if I want to change a setting in my my Firefox account, I cannot if it requires a popup box.

If I restart my computer (not the browser), the problem goes away, but eventually it happens again.

It is really disruptive. Now I have to do about 60% of my work in another browser. All of my account info, bookmarks, and passwords are saved with my Firefox account, so I would prefer to be able to use Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix? I should also not--this has persisted despite updating.

It keeps asking me to UPDATE and I keep clicking DISMISS. I want to turn off update checking. I keep asking for this feature to be restored, and no one is listening. It seems to me that what we want as users no longer matters anymore. I DO NOT WANT Firefox TO CHECK FOR UPDATES. I don't like being nagged.

UI scale changing after Youtube fullscreen

(sorry for my english)

I recently uprgraded Firefox from 102.0.1 to 109.0.1. UI went bigger, but I already searched that I had to create ui.textScaleFactor and set to 100 in about:config and to change browser.display.os-zoom-behavior to 0.

After these changes UI went normal again. Except one case: when I go to youtube and go fullscreen, then when I go back from fullscreen, my UI is going to bigger again - despite ui.textScaleFactor is 100 and browser.display.os-zoom-behavior is 0.

I need to restart Firefox and after restarting everyhing is normal (UI is not big).

The problem is: UI is going to bigger after youtube fullscreen and I need to restart the browser to go back to normal.

I thought I'd give the Foxfire a try on my Windows 10 laptop, so I downloaded and created an account, etc. All worked fine until I tried to use my desktop shortcuts to open Chrome, Google Photos and Gmail. Non would open. I then opened Google and found my sync was off. I tried to sign in and could not sign into my Google Account, I then spent several hours with Google support trying to find the problem. At last, it allowed me to sign in and restore all my Google account items. I then uninstalled Firefox as I didn't want to go thru this problem again.

Does anyone know why this occurred and how to avoid it again if I were to want to reinstall Foxfire?

Thanks for the help.

After updating to 109.0 Firefox won't open on primary monitor. I have moved it, closed it, but it restarts back on secondary monitor. After I move it to primary monitor, if I open another browser window it opens on the primary. I have renamed the xulstore.json file(so it creates a new one) but that did not help. It was working fine before the 109.0 update. I also have chrome installed and it works fine the way it should, so I'm thinking it is a Firefox 109.0 problem.

Ever since upgrading to the latest browser (109.0) I cannot login into both of my facebook accounts. One works fine, but the other one, when I input the credentials, goes to the first account. It only does this on firefox v 109.0. I tried them both using Opera, and they both work fine. What did you people do? Are you saving my logins improperly? If so, WHY?? Fix this problem or lose a very long time customer.

Dear Sir/Madam,

Since a few days ago I can no longer log in to my mail account using Firefox version 109.0.

It works perfect if I use Microsoft Edge but Firefox is my favourite.

The mail account I refer is: https://www.mail.com/ When I open mail.com the page opens normally but there is no login-boxes for user and password. Is this something Firex can fix? Or is it me who don't understand how it works?

Best regards Jan Danielsson
