Hello Mozilla Community,

Mac has keyboard text replacements where a text input entry can automatically output a word or phrase.

i.e. When I type "ty", it will automatically output "thank you".

I am aware of previous queries and solutions in the form of extensions or add-ons. However, this is not reasonable if there are dozens of these text replacements already inputted in to Mac OS.

It is worth noting that this is not an issue in Google Chrome...

Thank you in advance! (tyia) ; )

Mac Text Replacements are still not supported in Firefox, so you would have to look for an extension. It might be possible to export your Mac replacements and import them in the extension.
