Have had this problem for a couple of years now, across dozens of Firefox updates. Decided to finally make a post since have not been able to find anything online.

Normally not too much of an issue as I can edit on a different computer through Firefox Sync (or through the Bookmarks manager), just posting to see if anyone else has seen this before.

If I open a Bookmarks Toolbar folder, then right-click a bookmark to edit it, the contextual menu appears behind the open folder dropdown menu.

Issue persists even if I reset Firefox, or even completely uninstall / remove ALL its bits and pieces, reboot, and do a clean install.

Since I am on a Mac, I use the AppCleaner app from FreeMacSoft to completely remove an app.

This happens only on one of my two Macs. Have never seen this behavior on any other Mac (I work on dozens for work). Both my Macs also have Win 10 installs through BootCamp and those two also behave normally. I use Firefox Sync across 4 Firefox installs (2 Mac OS and 2 Win 10), an iPhone, and an iPad.

Screenshot enclosed below. Feel free to ask for any other info you may need. I recognize this may not be a Firefox issue. There seems to be a funky interaction between my install of Mac OS and Firefox. This occurs only with Firefox. All other apps exhibit normal menu behaviors.

Tech details: Firefox 117.0 Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7 running on mid 2012 15" MacBook Pro with 1 TB SSD and 16 GB RAM

Many Thanks!

The excellent answer here no longer works in Firefox 117.0 on MacOS. Unfortunately, that post is archived, so I cannot post an updated solution there. I would greatly appreciate if a moderator could add this post in the linked article, or at least link from there over to here.

For Firefox 117, the code needs to be modified slightly (two lines at the top need to be removed): ```

  //
  function ConfigJS() { Services.obs.addObserver(this, 'chrome-document-global-created', false); }
  ConfigJS.prototype = {
   observe: function (aSubject) { aSubject.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', this, {once: true}); },
   handleEvent: function (aEvent) {
     let document = aEvent.originalTarget; let window = document.defaultView; let location = window.location;
     if (/^(chrome:(?!\/\/(global\/content\/commonDialog|browser\/content\/webext-panels)\.x?html)|about:(?!blank))/i.test(location.href)) {
       if (window._gBrowser) {
         let keys = ["key_find", "key_findAgain", "key_findPrevious", "key_gotoHistory", "addBookmarkAsKb", "bookmarkAllTabsKb", "showAllHistoryKb", "manBookmarkKb", "viewBookmarksToolbarKb", "key_savePage", "key_search", "key_search2", "focusURLBar", "focusURLBar2", "key_openDownloads", "openFileKb", "key_reload_skip_cache", "key_viewSource", "key_viewInfo", "key_privatebrowsing", "key_quitApplication", "context-bookmarklink"];
         for (var i=0; i < keys.length; i++) {
            let keyCommand = window.document.getElementById(keys[i]);
            if (keyCommand != undefined) { 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("command"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("key"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("modifiers"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("oncommand"); 
               keyCommand.removeAttribute("data-l10n-id"); 
            }
         }
       }
     }
   }
  };
  if (!Services.appinfo.inSafeMode) { new ConfigJS(); }

```

I tried every solution posted and then I uninstalled and then wiped Firefox. Nothing helped. It seemed the picture would not sync or just freeze with the sound still playing. I came across an old post to change media.mediasource.enabled. Mine was already set on true. When I changed it to false it solved the problem.

I often need to be able to use the arrow keys to navigate my screen, especially in order to find and click on browser links. However, in the latest version of Firefox on a new macOS Ventura machine, the arrow keys are interpreted by Firefox even though they shouldn't be; at the least corresponding box in "Settings" is unchecked.

How can toggle this behavior off?

Thank you, David Romano

Hi, I'm having this problem of videos not playing in some websites for a long time now, not even sure how long anymore. It started on Twitter, where I get the error message "The media could not be played". Some time after I got it on Instagram where I get the message "Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video. Learn More". More recently I subscribed to the Nebula service and got a message there as well "The media could not be loaded". Differently from other people I don't have this problem on Youtube, over there everything has always been fine. I have tried every workaround on this, I have seen many tutorial videos and articles and tried everything and nothing worked. Running on Windows 10

Some things I have tried: -cleared cookies and cache; -disabled all add-ons, removed them even; -checked if firefox was updated; -checked if graphics card drives were updated; -opened websites on incognito mode, nothing changed there; -started Firefox in troubleshoot mode, nothing changed there; -disabled graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox; -enabled autoplay; -reset firefox; -changed my pc actually, installed firefox, got the error and reset firefox again;

Could anyone help me with this? Is this normal?

I occasionally use a site (www.zoomcare.com) which does not work properly with Firefox (I've been using Microsoft Edge (Windows 10) to access it). The problem comes when I try to login. I enter my username and password, and that brings up a blank page that does not redirect to anything, so I'm stuck.

Just out of curiousity, I was looking through Advanced Settings, and found security.csp.enableNavigateTo. It has been set to false, but when I set it to true, I am able to successfully login (I still go to the blank page, but after a brief pause, I'm redirected to a logged-in page).

I'd like to know something about the security implications of enabling this property. Is it a bad idea? (Not knowing, I've set it back to false and will continue to use Edge for now).

The problem is that even after I've tinkered with the about:config settings to prevent Firefox from restoring my previous session after a crash, it just won't listen! The changes I make in about:config don't seem to save, and every time Firefox crashes, it happily reloads my old tabs and windows.

Your assistance would be greatly appreciated!

I was having trouble switching and logging out of Twitter so I thought I could just clear site cookies to make it work, but I weirdly discovered "about:preferences -> Manage Data -> Remove Selected / Remove All Shown" has no effect. i.e. after clearing, when I open up manage data again, they are still there. I did not try "Clear Data" above it because I was afraid of clearing out all my logins.

I reinstalled my computer several weeks ago and current profile was directly copied from my last machine, so this might be a possible cause? Could someone be so kind to help me get remove cookies and hopefully twitter back to work? Thank you in advance.

Hello!

I recently got a new computer with Windows 11 freshly installed. I downloaded Firefox, went to take a screenshot, and the usual shortcut of Ctrl + Shift + S does not work. I can right click and Take a Screenshot, and I can use other Ctrl + Shift shortcuts, like Ctrl + Shift + T to reopen closed tabs. The only one that doesn't work is screenshots. I can also put Screenshots in my top row Toolbar and use it, just not the keyboard shortcut.

I refreshed Firefox, uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, as well as checked the about:config extensions.screenshots.disabled preference. It has been set to false, so I have set it to true and false again hoping it would "reset" it but nothing. Thank you!

I have Firefox installed on two PCs. I see the option to add "Recommended by Pocket" under Settings/Home, but on the other one I don't. Screen shots of both are attached. I have completely uninstalled, cleaned up all Firefox files and re-installed Firefox multiple times on the PC where I don't see the Pocket option but nothing changes. Also gone into about:config and tried making changes from there. I want the Pocket recommendations to show on the Firefox Home page for both PCs.

Thanks

I want to navigate on search results using the keyboard. I could use tab but it suggests all interactive elements such as news, images, books, videos, search settings and etc one by one.

I have followed the steps in the "Prevent Firefox from starting automatically" article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-starts-automatically-when-i-restart-window

But Firefox keeps starting automatically when I restart my computer. Attached is an image of how the settings are now.

What should I do? This is a bit annoying. I don't use Firefox as my main browser but I work as a customer success manager for an online platform and always need to do some tests on Firefox, but I don't want it to start automatically when I turn on my computer.

I'll for instructions.

Thank you

Hola. Mi ordenador tiene Debian 12. Utilizo Firefox 118, instalado a través de Flatpak. El problema que tengo en algunas páginas es que veo las fuentes pixeladas y la impresión es muy defectuosa, hasta el punto de no entender lo que aparece escrito. Esto sólo pasa en algunas páginas.

Si descargo directamente Firefox desde la página de Mozilla y abro la paǵina con una configuración limpia del navegador, las fuentes se ven correctamente; sin embargo, si sincronizo los datos de usuario, instalándose los datos, extensiones y demás las fuentes en determinadas páginas se ven mal.

Desactivé las extensiones pero el problema no se resuelve. Desde una instalación limpia de Firefox instalé una a una las extensiones y complementos, pero no logré reproducir el problema. Borré incluso la caché del navegador, pero nada. Y también sincronicé los datos de usuario en una instalación de Firefox en Fedora, pero el resultado es también negativo.

Alguna idea?

Gracias.
