How do you bring up the Context menu in FireFox? (I'm using an Apple MacBook Pro)

I use a MacBook Pro with MacOS 10.11 and the latest version of FireFox (72.0.2) and I'm unable to figure out how to bring up the Context menu. With previous versions of FireFox. I could hold down the Control key and click a tab and that would bring up the Context menu. But with the latest versions of FireFox, that option is no longer available.

I suppose if I bought a two-button mouse, I could bring up the Context menu with the right button, but you should be able to bring up the Context menu with the trackpad that come with Apple's MacBook Pro.

So how do you bring up the Context menu on an Apple MacBook Pro?

Thank you so much.

Hello-Please answer each question separately:.

1. Just to double-change, is it safe to open the pop-up list because I am only checking what has already been blocked OR does viewing them open them with the potential for more pop-ups to be displayed?

2. Does the list of pop-ups have to be 'cleared' manually or does it delete automatically when the tab is closed?

In the now current verusion of FF (72.0 - 64 bit) the indicator when you are dragging/dropping a tab like has been made almost invisible. It is now a VERY faint light blue and looks to be only 1px wide. It is VERY difficult to see for many with limited vision. How do I get the previous drag/drop indicator back so I know where I am dropping the tab being moved?

When I go to a website, the website scrolls down in medium speed until it reach the bottom, It does not allow me to scroll while this is happening. I have tried to refresh firefox, reinstall firefox and run with no addons. Autoscrolling is off. Caret Browsing is off. It also scrolls if I am active in another window.

This is most annoying on auto loading websites, because it scrolls down the site loads more content and the scrolling continues until the site stop loading new content.

This only happens on this device and not on my laptop (also Linux) that has the same plugins.

Firefox offers the option to "Fill login" through the context menu (see attached image) when ever in a login or password field. However I am using Bitwarden instead of the Firefox password manager and disabled saving passwords in Firefox. Is there a way to remove this "Fill login" action as it always just shows that no logins are saved?

Thanks, Mattias

Hello friends. Thanks for your help :)

In the past I have been able to save my Bookmarks into a Word doc so I could further sort and organize them. When I did this the links from the bookmarks were active and I could click on any one and go to the corresponding website/article or whatever.

For some reason when I now choose "Export Bookmarks to HTML" in Firefox and double click on the link to open them in Word I am presented with a "File Conversion" box that I'm unfamiliar with and when I click OK it spits out what looks to be some type of coded gibberish and not my Bookmark links.

The attached 3 files are numbered 1 to 3. Please read them in order. Thanks.

I think this is a virus of some kind and wondering how to get rid of it. Have you heard of this happening? I look in Control Panel under programs to uninstall and don't find it there. What can I do?

Hi there!

I have been having trouble with Firefox continuing to autoplay videos even with preferences set to "Block Audio and Video."

If I go to twitter.com or elsewhere Firefox will show that auto play is disabled, but videos will autoplay with no audio. I would just like to get this feature working as autoplaying videos are incredibly annoying!

Thanks for any help!

I had to reinstall win 7 on a new HD. Before I removed the old HD I copied my entire firefox profile. I then re-named it to my 'new' firefox profile - in hopes that everything would transfer. My bookmarks are there, but my passwords are not. Although the files key4.db and logins.json are both present in the new profile - they do not contain my old passwords. file size is also the same - very odd. I have access to all data on my old HD - how do I recover/transfer all my old passwords - there are >150 of them - I'm not going to type them all in

thanks so much

After upgrading to Firefox 73, my browser can't load any webpage. This happens if I type the url, click on a bookmark or even follow a link on an email. If I try other browsers, all pages load normally. No add-ons are enabled on Firefox. Also, I noticed that the about:config page isn't loading. If I revert back to an older version, like 67.0, the normal operation restores. But, with the next Firefox restart that installs the update 73 the problem reappears. I have also checked to see if Firefox runs in compatibility mode but it didn't. Please help me solve this issue.

I normally use multiple search engines by using the dropout panel with search engine icons (I think they're called one-click) on just one address bar (The red label on the image), but since last update they no longer appear on just one address bar (the blue label). I have attempted to enable the search bar, and there it seems to work so maybe its somehow hidden from the design... Is this a bug? I have browser.search.showOneOffButtons and browser.urlbar.oneOffSearches set on TRUE, and use no particular theme. Searching if someone had the same question I came with complaints asking for the panel to be removed so I wonder if its a design interface decision. Thank you in advance for your time.
