For some reason, so far, twice I have opened Firefox only to discover everything reset to the default: addons gone, history gone, websites I have previously signed into gone as well. And I am not sure how this happens, and what to do to prevent it.

I have searched up help, but I feel I am unable to understand them.

Video help would be especially appreciated.

Hello firefox,

I accidentally deleted an important bookmark-folder, and it took some time to find how to restore them. This may help others too:

I followed this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1031905, but is for Windows.

On Apple: cmd + shift + b

Select the 'import export' button,

Make backup: export to HTML

select 'restore'

Select the right date, and ready !

Cheers!

After update circa September this year firefox on Mac ceases to load gmail page. Clearing gmail cookies temporarily helps but then it starts over again. Gmail also opens in the private browsing session. I don't have any firefox plugins/extensions installed, except for default facebook container that got auto-installed with another update. Looking for a permanent solution that would allow me to stay on firefox, without having to migrate to another browser.

Hello

I'm on iMac Catalina 10.15.7 and Firefox 82.0.2. Ever since upgrading to Catalina Firefox has been giving me problem. When trying to start Firefox sometimes it starts right up. Most times the icon just bounces in my dock. sometimes after maybe 1 to 5 minutes it will start. Other times it never starts. I can't force quit it.

Just a while ago I went to open my Firefox and nothing. Didn't move. No dot below the icon in the dock to let me know it's already open.

Okay I keep a new dmg file so tried to reinstall it. Error message says can't install because Firefox is in use.

Had to manually turn off the iMac and re-start for Firefox to open.

Too may issues here. It all started when upgrading to Catalina. Finally had to come here to try to find a solution.

No crash report because it's not crashing. just won't start or quit most times. Thanks Allen

Like previous questioners, I am trying to find a keyboard shortcut for switching between Firefox windows on MacOs (in my case 10.11.6).

Lots of people suggest (Shift) Cmd + ~ (Tilde) ... but this does not work for me ... and appears to do nothing in Firefox ... but does cycle through finder windows, which means the keys themselves are working!

Any help appreciated.

I recently migrated from chrome to Firefox, i am just starting to get used to it the interface. My current setup right now is my laptop (MacBook Pro) and an external monitor (ViewSonic). Whenever i go full screen on the monitor - in Firefox - the dock on my laptop screen disappears. Is there any way of preventing this or is this an apple thing not Firefox?

Thank you for the help!

I can't get Linkedin to work with Firefox anymore. SPECIFICALLY my mouse no longer tracks to the correct buttons and links. If I try and click on the "Like" button, click in a field to comment, OR click on the "reply button", my mouse if "off" in its orientation to those areas on the screen and I can't click on anything. I don't get the insertion point in a field or the "finger/hand" mouse pointer when I'm over a button. If I move around the screen to random places, those appear, BUT not when I'm hovering over the right place on the screen where those would work. I hope this make sense... The mouse location is just "missing" or off on the screen not allowing me to navigate or contribute.

Anyone else experiencing this???

New iMac running Catalina 10.15.7 with Firefox 82.0.3 loaded as default browser. When in a website, for instance Cook's Illustrated, when I click on an article that would normally expand to show its content Firefox currently does nothing. Similarly, while in a support page i filled in the boxes with my email address, the issue, etc and at the end hit submit but nothing happens. No error messages, nothing. Using safari on the new mac and Firefox on another mac running el capitan and firefox version 78.4oesr both work normally. Under security permissions are set to default for the sites. Any one have any ideas?
