Codesigning breaks after install

When I copy Firefox.app from the dmg to the applications folder, the app is no longer codesigned.

x@x ~ % /usr/bin/codesign -vv -r- /Volumes/Firefox/Firefox.app /Volumes/Firefox/Firefox.app: valid on disk /Volumes/Firefox/Firefox.app: satisfies its Designated Requirement

x@x ~ % /usr/bin/codesign -vv -r- /Applications/Firefox.app /Applications/Firefox.app: a sealed resource is missing or invalid file modified: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/update-settings.ini file modified: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/defaults/pref/channel-prefs.js

I literally just drag it from one finder window to the other.

The reason I discovered this is because when I set a firewall rule in Little Snitch, I have to modify it and deselect 'check process identity' because it says Firefox.app code signature status is "Resource or signature modified".

When I discovered the issue I deleted firefox and downloaded the latest version. Codesign is fine on the downloaded disk image, but broken after i copy it to applications.

Is this expected behaviour?

Browser Start up Delay

Hello Smart People, I have been using Firefox for some years now. Love it. This is my first posting, ever.

Upon opening my browser, the process is always delayed somewhat by the step of offering to reconnect with all the websites and/or activities of the prior session. This is all well and good, except that for years now. it just leads to the same conclusion. The program apologies for not being able to reconnect (which I never want to do, anyway).

and I prompt it to continue. My computer has eight partitions and a ton 'o junk on it. It is so slow to get going sometimes. I should tell you that I run malware-bytes Prem, and that I physically restart after every session on every partition that I may use on that day. Most of the time I'm on Private Windows, though not always.

My question; is there an election to opt out of this normally useful service (auto widget) offered every time one signs in? And if one does elect to reject this function, would it be somehow harmful or less beneficial?

Not earth shattering priority I know, just wondering Iustus Dicens

PS took a look at the "shared data". Really does look under the skirts, doesn't it

Of all sudden my firefox browser completely stopped working. My internet works. My other browsers work. Firefox does not. The pages load infinitely, sometimes they will load after like 20 minutes. I have tried all the solutions under "Firefox can't load websites but other browsers can" help section and none helped, neither did restarting my computer my network adapter nor my router. Every other browser works normally but for some reason firefox does not. It sometimes loads a page on launch but then it stops loading anything again.

I have two separate problems which I think have the same root cause:

1) Whenever I go to make a call in Discord, no audio goes through to the other people in the call and I cannot hear them.

2) Whenever I try to make a video call in Messenger, the video is just a black screen but I can see myself. The people on the other end say that they can see both me and them.

This is exclusively a firefox problem because I have been able to call people through the Discord app and use Microsoft Edge to see the other person on the Messenger. I have also checked my permissions and have given both websites permission to use the microphone and webcam settings. How can I fix this? (Please also bear in mind I am not tech savvy in the slightest and if I have to manually change settings in the coding or programming, you will need to explain every single step in very clear detail)

I cannot sign into my account at Fifth Third Bank using Firefox. This has been true for months. That is the only site I've had any trouble with, and they blame you. They want me to use Chrome. I don't want to.

What can I say to Fifth Third to persuade them that I am not the problem? They get plenty of complaints from others with my same problem, according to customer service there. Is there a way for me to use my computer, my browser of choice, etc?

I have been using Firefox for many years. I always use the most current version, and have it set to check for automatic updates. My computer is current, 10th gen Intel with RTX 3060 graphics card, 1 TB SSD drive, etc. I just loaded up my Firefox and I got a blank screen, and EVERYTHING was deleted, including the 367 bookmarks I have over the last two years, and all my settings!!! I regularly use Revo Unistaller Pro, but this NEVER does anything like what I experienced, only clears cache, cookies, etc etc. I have been using that program for years also, with no issues like this. So it is puzzling to me what just happened. I literally lost ALL my progress in Firefox for the last two years! How did this happen?!?!?

Firefox is the only application affected (latest 107.0.1, Windows 11 pro latest updates). I have updated all drivers, run system and memory checks, uninstalled deleted remaining files and registry settings, twice actually all to no avail.

I have recently changed ISP but cannot see how that affects just Firefox (Chrome/Opera/Edge all work) and also moved to Bit Defender antivirus. Here I think I saw startup installations in Chrome etc for bit defender but never for Firefox. I have tried turning off all virus web protection still no joy.

I have looked briefly at the crash reports but with my level of expertise I can see no common crash reason.

I have had no add-ins installed for last week while trying to get this to work again. I have used Firefox for years and have no wish to move to another browser but this situation is driving me nuts.

If there is anybody out there with any ideas on next steps I could take?

Cheers Mike

On one website *only* and only with *some* hyperlinks there I have trouble opening the hyperlinks. I can work around the issue, but I am curious what causes it -- and if there is a way to avoid having to work around. Here are the symptoms:

1. (right)Click on the hyperlink and 'open in new tab' --> does not open 2. Same as 1) but 'open in new window' --> does not open 3. Same as above but 'open in new private window' --> opens fine!

Alternatively 1. (plain click) on the link --> does not open 2. above + use back arrow (<-) to go back to page with the hyperlink and then use the forward arrow (->) to return to the hyperlinked page and it opens!

Additional info: FF 107.0.1 (64-bit) on Macbook pro M1 Ventura FF preferences set to open links in new tab, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't depending on the site FF advanced setting browser.search.openintab is set to TRUE (but it failed with FALSE also)

So I am stumped!

Cheers, Bert

After I have been using Firefox for about an hour, the space bar stops working. I'm only able to type one word. This happens in all the Firefox boxes where one can type, as well as in Duck Duck Go search box, really any open app. If I quit Firefox and re-open, the problem disappears until another hour has past. I do not have this problem with Safari or Pages, Notes, really any other app I use on my Mac. I am using a 2020 Mac Mini with an M1 chip, MacOS Ventura 13.0.1. My Firefox is up to date 107.0.1(64 bit). I'm using a Logitech K811 keyboard.
