Hi all,

After month of using, the screenshot function of Firefox seems to have disappeared. Right click contextual menu does now show the option to take a screenshot and the [three dots] -> Take Screenshot menu action does nothing. Moreover, the icon of the function seems to be missing (see attached images). I run latest (83 64-bit) version on a new MacBook pro.

Thanks in advance, Alex

Hi- i'm a little confused about the "collections" feature on my pixel. is it supposed to carry over onto my computer? I'd love to access my collections on my desktop. I also recently upgraded my phone- my collections haven't transferred over to my new phone and that's also frustrating. I might just be an idiot but i can't seem to find any documentation on whether collections syncs between desktop and mobile; an indication that this is generally thought to be so obvious it needs no documentation.

Whenever I have to go to a videoconference hosted through the browser (like GoogleMeet or Theranest), Firefox asks me to choose a camera, but it doesn't allow me to choose the built-in FaceTime camera on my iMac. The only option it offers is EpocCam, which I have installed on my phone but never use. (I've attached a screenshot so you can see that I can't choose any other camera – it just doesn't give me the option!) I must have selected EpocCam once several months ago, but I cannot figure out how to get rid of it as an option on Firefox and I can't choose the built-in camera. I've searched for hours to find a solution but can't figure out how to deal with this. I don't have a similar problem on Safari, which is the only other browser I have installed at this point; and I don't want to migrate all my stuff to a new browser just because of this presumably easy-to-solve problem. Help!

Current preference settings are increased font size to 14pt and zoom 110%. Since I set those preferences some websites, mainly ones with form fields, come up as a boxed question mark. Also when I do an internet search is comes out crazy alien like text / weird code. See attached screen shot of a basic search for 'books'. I prefer using Firefox over Safari and would love to remedy this.

Using current version 83 on Mac OS 10.15.7.

Thank you

Hello,

I'm posting because I found nothing on the internet about this.

When I want to drag and drop a file from Firefox (for example : an image) to my desktop, the file always get placed somewhere decided by Firefox instead of the place I wanted.

Example : I want to drag and drop an image from Firefox on the bottom left of my screen, and it gets placed on the top right.

This is really annoying because Firefox always decide a different place to put the file, and I always lose time looking for the file on my desktop.

This is the only application that I use that does this.

Is this possible to fix ?

Thank you for helping !

Recently, I have been blocked from visiting certain websites by Firefox, which are perfectly fine websites. I have to close out of Firefox and use Safari to connect to these websites. One of the websites is my City of San Bruno website: https://www.onlinebiller.com/sanbruno/index.html.

This is just one of several websites in which I'm told the website there is a potential security issue. Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue: I copy and pasted the warning below: "Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.onlinebiller.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it? www.onlinebiller.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem."

I contacted the City of San Bruno and was told it's a browser problem. As I mentioned above I can connect to these sites through Safari with no problem.

Thank You for any explanation/assistance on how to connect to these websites using Firefox.

Hi,

I need to get the osx browser version 83.1.0, but I can't download it. Only 83.0.0. Or I need version 83.0.0 for android, I have 83.1.0

I'm runing a self hosted sync server and thats why I need compatible version, otherwise it won't sync.

For testing I installed on both device the beta version, and it worked there. I don't want to use beta, it was just to see if all settings are correct.

Thanks for the help!

I'm using macOS 11.0.1, with Automatic theme-switching enabled in System Preferences. In the evening, when the theme switches to Dark mode, Firefox's theme changes to Dark also. If I don't shut down my Mac, Firefox's theme will be Light in the morning, which is normal. However, if I shutdown my Mac completely in the evening and turn it back on the next morning, Firefox's theme keeps the last state (Dark) also my system's theme changes to Light. The only workaround is to change my Mac's theme to Dark/Light only, and change it back to Auto again.
