This is not a bug or issue, rather a use case question. I have a webpage with information and I don't want to accidentally click or submit anything on the page.

This could also be considering having a form etc in draft form as view-only so you go into "View Only Mode" and work the webpage as a reference etc. without having to worry about any accidental submission or mistakes.

If someone knows of Add-ons or how we can achieve it with FF, it would be much appreciated. Posting, since I expect to have this case often.

I accidentally closed my Previous Tabs Session and am unable to find them. I've tried some of the online tips but am still unsuccessful. Is there somewhere on my computer where I can find the previous tabs that I had open in Firefox?

Thank you, Massimo

Is there some way to enable and disable specific config settings , on a per-site basis?

For example, let's say I want to disable right-click hijacking (dom.event.contextmenu.enabled) on turtlesaregreat.com, but use the default settings everywhere else.

The Page Info > Permissions panel has some, but not all the ones I want. Is this somehow built into Firefox, or maybe there's an extension?

Thanks.

I keep getting prompted to sign into my Firefox account, but when I type my password and hit enter, the prompt clears out my password and nothing happens. I'm already logged in to post this question, so I'm confused as to why I keep getting prompted.

I've tried:

  1. Numbered list item Removing the account, but the same unresponsive password prompt shows up
  2. Numbered list item Reinstalling, but same issue
  3. Numbered list item Resetting password, but same issue

Potentially related: I am successfully logged into my Firefox account on another laptop, and I'm seeing no prompts there. Any ideas what else to try?

I have always used facebook messenger to video chat with friends, however suddenly it says tis facility is not supported by this browser. Do I have to leave firefox to find a browser that works?

I see that other people have raised this point,but there does not seem to be a response from firefox.

This is a silly one, probably.

My refresh button has mysteriously disappeared from my browser toolbar. I can just use cmd+shift+r to refresh, but muscle memory keeps looking for the button on screen too, and it would be nice to have it back!

I opened up the customize options, thinking maybe I just removed it by accident, but refresh doesn't appear to be an option?

I also opened it up in troubleshoot mode to see if that would change anything. It did not :(

I also don't have any extensions that mess with the toolbar, so I don't think that would be an issue (and troubleshoot mode should have disabled extensions anyway I think.)

I recently updated to 126.0.1 - no idea if that has anything to do with it, but this did happen right after the update.

There are a couple more people on here with the same question, and they all had easy solutions. I'm hoping I'm just not seeing a setting somewhere.

Thanks!

For months, Firefox will not load pages, like for google for instance. I will press Enter to load the page and it just won't do anything. Sometimes quitting and restarting fixes the issue, sometimes it doesn't. It isn't my internet, as I often have to open Safari to load the page instead, which always works.

I just did a refresh of Firefox, but the issue persists. It's getting to the point of potentially switching browsers. It's frustrating to have to switch browsers if I need a page to load.

My rig: MacMini 2018. Macosx 13 Ventura. Safari browser.

Safari can export an HTML file for bookmarks and a CSV file for passwords. I saved them to my desktop. Trying every way I can in Firefox, FFox won't accept these file extensions. What is it looking for?

What am I missing? Seems to be no 2024 routine for this online. I'm probably in dark about something obvious.

Memory load/leak on Apple Silicon?

I have struggled off an on for about a year since getting an M-series Mac with Firefox and memory load. This is an issue that I did not struggle with with the same RAM-Specc'd Intel alternative. I have received multiple out of memory errors the longer Firefox would run. I have done full clean installs of my machine (not restoring anything from backup) and gone so far as to up replacing the machine (though not for this specific issue only) that had double the RAM (32GB vs 16GB). I haven't yet begun to receive out of memory errors on this new machine, but I see the day coming.

I believe this is directly related to the number of tabs open, like they must not go to sleep. My concern is that with firefox running, over time (like a day or two) Firefox ends up consuming a little more than 10GB of RAM (peak observed so far). Quitting and reopening Firefox brings me down to 2.5-3 on the same tab count for a couple days.

My addons are all up to date, and I only have two (Firefox Multi-Account Containers, and NordPass for password management). I've removed Nord for troubleshooting purposes with no effect. I have changed to various versions and variations of firefox (meaning beta versions and the developer variation of the browser).

I have also used another browser entirely (MS Edge) for an extended amount of time with basically the same environment open. For comparison, same tabs, same amount of time open Edge uses 3GB RAM and upon restart jumps to 5GG Ram but settles back down to 3.

I am wanting to stay with Firefox. It's multi-container setup is the best there is (that I know of). I hate the idea of moving to another browser.


TL;DR Issue: High Memory usage on Apple Silicon (Firefox using just over 10GB RAM after a couple days)

steps taken: Computer has been reinstalled multiple times Computer has been replaced (move from 16GB to 36GB) Browser reinstalled with various versions and variations. Add-ons have been updated and also removed.

Reference Intel Macbook with 16GB RAM in my workflow did not have this issue a single time over many years.

Desire Looking to reign in Firefox's memory usage so I don't have to move to another browser (Edge has proven to hold at 3GB under the same workflow).

I started using Firefox on my Macbook after only having used it on my Razer for awhile. On my Razer (so far) I've had no (new) issues with Dark Mode, but on my Macbook, the Firefox browser is always in dark mode when I search Google. It does not impact other sites (not even this one, where I'm typing this, or any of the other pages where I've looked for a fix). I have had this issue consistently with Firefox across mobile, my Razer, my old Windows computer, my Macbook, and everywhere I want to use it. In the past, changing the theme, going into the config settings (which I hate doing and am trying to avoid this time around), or using the Firefox Color custom themes have worked. I even checked my Google settings, and Dark Mode is completely disabled for search. So I know it's a Firefox issue.

Is there a permanent, consistent solution to just completely disable dark mode? I am never going to want to use it, and I am tired of having to go through some version of this every time I try to use Firefox on Mac -- especially since this time none of my normal workarounds are actually working.

I'd eat nails before using Chrome, but I am extremely frustrated.
