After installing Firefox 84.0 (Mac), I no longer see the circular "reload page" tool on the address bar. Is this something I did, or has it really gone away? If it's gone, how do I force a page reload? If I screwed something up, any idea how I can unscrew it ;) ?

Hello all~

The tally for the traffic counter plug-in for my website does not show up with Firefox, although it does show up on Safari. The header is there for it, Website Traffic Counter, but no tally.

Any ideas?

Why does the Firefox print button launch the save window? When I open an attachment from an email to print, the print button automatically wants to save the document as a PDF. If you try to open the PDF after being saved, it will launch the printer function on my MacBook Pro.

I have tried the procedures in the "Fix Printer Problem" article, which does not resolve the problem. If I refresh Firefox, the print button will work for a few days and then reverts to saving files.

I have removed and redownloaded Firefox multiple times, and I get the same results. I have used Firefox for quite a while and never had this problem. This issue is something that has started about two months ago.

Firefox won't play any video, on any website at all. I get different error messages on different sites, such as: The video playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the video used features your browser did not support OR Sorry, we're having trouble with playing this video. I've tried following some of the advice in the forums here, so I cleared the cache and the cookies, I ensured DRM content is enabled, and I unchecked the 'Use hardware acceleration when possible' option under preferences. None of this has made any difference. I also restarted firefox and installed an adobe flash player add on. Still no success. Any advice?

Not sure this is the right 'topic' but I just migrated all my info from my old MacBook Air to my new one, and Firefox is acting weird: I can go to various common websites, like salon and npr, but not, for example, slate.com.

Also, more importantly: 1. I can't even get to gmail. When I type 'gmail.com' in the brower, firefox does nothing. Even if I try a serach of 'gmail sign in' that will come up, but the link won't work?

2. Also, like, twitter won't work. Facebook I can get to my page but can click on anything, except if I try to message someone, it takes me to a blank page?

My Chrome browser is working, and my TOR browser as well.

Firefox is my prefered browser. What's going on? What should I do?

Thanks in advance!

Im working for my government posting applies to this certain website: https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal

When an apply is completed i printed on pdf to save locally.

This was fine till Firefox update 85.00 ( i jumped from 83.00 to 85.00, i don't know why. but i can reproduce it even on 84.00.

) When i tried to save as pdf, the character encoding of upper part of page (i think its header) you should defently see the exact same page to found out why ( https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal ) is appear with squares and the characters is losted, and unavailable. ( you can see here: https://imgur.com/a/W3g0Tz6 )

Also After the updated version for PRINT DIALOG (the new one) the new dialog, is not showed up, (see image)

if you are updating from old version with old profile. 

I had to delete the old profile to appear the new dialog, and there is no setting to get the new one, from old one.

On Firefox prior to 84.00: ( on 83.00 for example) this issue is not there ( and the page has not change at all), the save to pdf was working perfectly, and the characters as shown on the image, is perfectly grabbed and saved. I could not find any other website to replicate this issue so please, invest it here..

https://voucher.gov.gr/ui/project/37/personal

thank you.

As captured in the long thread "What's the difference between ALLOW and ALLOW for a SESSION?”, with a lot of handholding from jscher2000, I managed to set custom choices for privacy and security the way I wanted on my mac computer (blocking all cookies in all windows, with exceptions saved for ALLOW, ALLOW for SESSION and some for BLOCK). To accomplish this, required enabling deletion of cookies when Firefox closes.

My assumption based on information I got in the above mentioned thread, was that even when deletion of cookies is checked for when Firefox is closed, cookies for websites identified as exceptions with ALLOWED, are not deleted.

However, this is not what happens. A specific example is tripcheck.com, which stores custom itineraries for cameras in cookies. I setup quite a few of these custom itineraries and saved them and they were OK until I closed Firefox, when they were deleted, as the cookie was deleted. This website is setup as ALLOW in the Exceptions list.

As explained in the above mentioned thread:

"(2) Scenario Two

[X] Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (checked)

Firefox shortens cookie expiration to session only unless the site has an ALLOW permission in the exceptions list. “.

I am more confused than ever, the settings do not appear to be working the way they are meant to work, not only for session cookies but also for what should be "permanent".

Am I doing something incorrectly or am I misunderstanding how setting should work?

If cookies of websites setup for ALLOW are deleted when Firefox is closed, the setting is defeating what I am trying to accomplish: saving cookies for websites that I use and save data in cookies (such as recognizing the computer, what’s needed for 2 step authentication, etc.).

Thanks.

Strange behaviour when copying images on Mac

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 downloaded and installed the latest version of Firefox into the new Mac mini (Apple Silicon) arrived at home today, but Japanese sentences in every website are displayed not in a Japanese font (like Hiragino) but in a Chinese font.

What should I do so that I make the sentences display in a Japanese font correctly? I tried to change the font settings of the Firefox, but the settings get back to the default font instantly. Please answer me if you know how to solve this problem.

(I'm sorry if my English above is poor or incorrect.)

Hi there,

I use Firefox both on my Windows PC and Mac. On Windows, when I want to show a saved password, Firefox asks Firefox password first before showing the saved password but on Mac Firefox does not ask Firefox password, so the password is shown immediately after I click the Eye icon.

In my opinion it's quite dangerous because if I forget to lock my Macbook, someone can easily see all my saved password on Firefox.

I hope Firefox can fix this.

Best Regard

In MacOS Big Sur 11.1 on my MacBook, I have set MacOS to automatically switch between Light Mode and Dark Mode. But I notice that Firefox does not handle this well. When I have used my MacBook Dark Mode and switch back to Light Mode, Firefox still hangs in Dark Mode. The only way to solve this is to choose Light Mode in System Preferences instead of automatic.

Somehow Other Bookmarks drop down menu was added to bookmarks toolbar - how can I remove it?

It was never there before. I arrange my Bookmarks Toolbar so that only the icons are in the toolbar. Somehow the Other BookMarks drop down menu has appeared on the right end of the bookmarks toolbar after the overflow double arrow. 

I tried everything to delete it but it remains there. It's taking a lot of space on the toolbar and I dislike it.

Hello all,

I used to have this setting whereby I had an icon at the end of the address bar which I could click on to copy whichever link was current at the time. I reinstalled Firefox or something due to a problem I had and I can't seem to find that option anymore. I can't remember if it was an add-on or an option in Firefox itself as standard.

I'm using Firefox 89.0 on a Mac.

Does anybody know how I can get that icon back?

Thank you.
