My Firefox has started refusing to open certain websites which I have previously accessed. These include, but I suspect are not limited to: warhorn.net foambrain.com mybestjudymerch.com

Google Chrome on this computer will open these sites, as will my Firefox install on my work computer. I'm running Big Sur 11.2.1. I have tried every step on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1290042

Moving Multiple Firefox Profiles - Confused by Profile Names and Profiles Aren't Recognized on New Computer

I have 100s of profiles that i need to move to a new computer but the names of the profiles are not .default (see attached screenshot named "Profile names on old computer") - they appear instead to be what i named the profiles.

And when I do move them to the Profile Directory, they aren't recognized in Profile Manager, I assume because they don't end in .default (see screenshot named "Profiles on New Computer" and screenshot "New computer's Profile Manager").

But on my old Macbook, they are recognized just fine. What am I missing or doing wrong?

Thank you

So I was having some trouble a few days ago with a website that automatically re-directed as soon as I landed on it to another page. So I happily went off in the settings and disable the automatic redirect. Now a week or two later I'm sitting here going I can't find the setting anymore? I can't even search for it and have absolutely no results you would think searching for "redirect" in the settings pain would bring it up. it's probably something that got buried in developer tools that I would never be able to turn off/toggle again unless I get lucky with the right extremely memorable and easily accessible incantation in the about : config because that's just all so well documented. Is it a "1" is it a "0" is it a "5" which one disabled / enabled what is the other options do?

Hi - The last 2-3 Mac OS versions of FF (85.0.2, 86.0) are not allowing me to open Firefox>Preferences from the Firefox menu, the dashboard icon, or using Command-,

I'm only able to open the Preferences window by typing about:preferences in the address bar. If I keep a Preferences tab available, I'm able to navigate to that window using the aforementioned methods.

Any ideas?

Many thanks

Firefox 86 for Windows gets a beautiful new Print dialog, with great Print Preview and other functionality. The Mac? Nope!

And there is no technical reason for this! Chrome/Vivaldi/Brave all have a similar dialog box that makes it easy not to waste paper when a website insists on printing a second page for a single word.

Come on, Mozilla! A little feature parity would be nice – especially for such basic functionality!

I'm getting this error message on a site I have visited for 10 years without a problem. Last week this error message came up. Its for a financial website. I have been able to reach the same website through Safari and Opera so its a Firefox issue.

I welcomed the Picture-in-Picture feature to the Mac, which allowed me to watch YouTube videos while performing other tasks.

Recently when I have clicked on the Picture-in-Picture icon, the view does the exact opposite of what I want to occur. I want a small window that I can move around and resize. Instead, the video goes Full Screen.

I've tried right-clicking on the icon and on the video, double-right-clicking, looking through Firefox settings, updating to the latest version, etc. -- but stiill don't know how to recover the Picture-in-Picture feature. How do I get that back? Thank you.

There is a site that I've been accessing for months from firefox. Today, all my attempts to access it result in "Forbidden: You don't have permission to access this resource." If I bring up a safari browser, the exact same URL loads fine. I didn't change any firefox configuration settings. Any ideas?

I recently couldn't logon to my local online banking site. The thing is, is had been working just fine for years, and then all of sudden stopped working. Upon calling the bank they said everything looked fine on their end and try using a different browser. I used Chrome (would rather NOT use that browser), and I could logon fine. I found that if I disabled Privacy Possum it worked fine, so, now when I want to logon to my local bank I just disable Privacy Possum and it works. But I don't understand why it all of sudden quit working.

Now I can't logon to my Penfed credit card account. I tried turning off all the extensions, NO help. I went to the Firefox trouble shooting section and refreshed Firefox and did what ever else they said to do like clear ALL my history and cache...still no help. My Penfed had been working just fine until today, and it also comes up fine using Chrome. Is there anything that has changed in Firefox that is blocking my two online banking accounts that you know of?? This seems very strange.

After dragging firefox icon to dock on mac, unlike safari, it asks for user id and password each time I want to use it, sending notification by e-mail about the log in. Is this necessary as safari doesn't need this, and if so, is it easier just to use safari as default browser instead of firefox? Or can this be changed in settings without harming my security, as I'm using it on my mac from home. Some things work better with Firefox, but it I have to login and enter a password each time to use it, then it makes it cumbersome to use Firefox as a default browser. Thank you, First time user of Firefox on Mac.

I keep my Bookmarks Sidebar open. It works properly for a few minutes and then it doesn't. The behavior it shows is as follows.

1. It quits scrolling. I have to click the web page and go back to the sidebar to scroll again. 2. It scrambles the bookmarks when I click one. 3. When I click one bookmark it opens some other one.

Basically it acts crazy. The one fix I have found is when it is acting up and I close and reopen the sidebar it starts working properly again for a while. Then the problems repeats until I close and reopen the sidebar.

I am using FF 85.0.2 and an Imac running High Sierra 10.13.6. I was told by the Farmers tech person that there is no problem on their end. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Is there a way to import 'CLIQZ' bookmarks? Cliqz has been discontinued and no longer supported. I have been using it for several years and want to import its bookmarks to Firefox so I don't have big job of replicating. Because Mozilla and Cliqz were affiliated I thought there might be some method to do this but can't find a way in Firefox help file. Is there a way to do this so I can go back to using Firefox?
