How do you have the Touch Bar show word and emoji suggestions when typing?

Expected

When typing text while using Firefox browser, the Touch Bar is expected to provide suggestions, i.e. words and emojis.

e.g. Chrome enables this feature

Actual

The Touch Bar does not provide word or emoji suggestions when using Firefox browser. This seems potentially related to the "Keyboard" setting "Touch Bar typing suggestions" that is not showing for Firefox.

Configuration

  • macOS: 11.3.1
  • Firefox: 88.0.1

I got started using Firefox a few years ago. Once I got adjusted to the different controls, I really like using it, BUT...

I have updated it three times now (the last time was on accident after ignoring the notice for a long time). Every update breaks the browser for me. I start getting Windows that don't load - the dot just bounces but the window stays blank for hours. The browser fails to load anything. On restart I get message that Firefox failed to close properly. New windows take up to 6 or 7 tries to load a link, and the same for loading into a tab.

The first couple times I updated, I followed the guidance to save favorites, dump the browser and restart from scratch, then load everything back in. While it worked, it's a PITA for a browser that updates pretty frequently, and I think routine updates should be able to load without having to spend hours troubleshooting and reloading. I'm not stupid or computer illiterate - I manage a Linux server cluster at work, but I can't manage my Firefox at home through a routine update.

Can anyone help get Firefox to load and run properly such that it works even after an update? I hate Edge, and Internet Explorer, while easy to learn is full of security holes and often DOA at most websites these days. I refuse to go Google, and I'd prefer to not learn another browser. I like Firefox, but the post-update problems are killing me.

I'm using FF88.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6

I'm a regular participant in the Microsoft Answers Community. When replying to messages there today a space appears when I press the space bar but as soon as I type the next character the space closes & the text runs together. E.g. instead of This is a sentence the text appears as Thisisasentence. If I then go back & re-insert the spaces they are retained but that is a royal pain.

This is a new behavior as of today. I have confirmed that this does not occur when using Safari nor does it occur when replying in the Apple support community.

I'd appreciate any insight on this.

Starting today, when I click on a video in Youtube using Firefox 88.0.1, the video will not start. When I click the start icon in the middle of the screen the page reloads and the video starts. Problem is when browsing you have to select a video and then when the video page loads you must start the video. When using the back button, you must go back two pages not one.

Greetings,

Some type of update on Wednesday -- either Windows 10, Firefox or Evernote -- has caused the Evernote web clipper to stop working. However, it continues to work on Chrome.

Over the past two days, I have taken these steps.

1. Refreshed Firefox. 2. Uninstalled Evernote app from my computer. 3. Uninstalled Evernote extension on both Firefox and Chrome. 4. Cleaned the cache. 5. Checked for and installed all available updates on Windows, Firefox and Evernote. 6. Set Options > Privacy & Security > Enhanced Tracking Protection to Standard 7. Set Options > Privacy & Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage Exceptions and allowed cookies for http://www.evernote.com and https://evernote.com 6. Reinstalled all the other Firefox extensions without problems. 7. Reinstalled the Evernote app for Windows and the clipper app for Chrome without problem.

Yet, every time I try to add the Evernote web clipper back to Firefox, it gets stuck on the permissions screen. It will not allow the Allow button to be clicked. The Evernote icon appears in the tool bar, but is dead. Even after restarting Firefox, the clicking on the icon does nothing.

What am I missing? Thanks!

I'm trying to figure out what on earth is wrong with this software. After installing the latest version, unbeknownst to me, after an hour or two of usage the browser fails to connect to any website, at all. Upon closing and re-opening the browser, I'm prompted that "you've launched an older version of Firefox" my bookmarks and history is corrupted, I need to create a new profile. Once the browser actually opens, I check the version, it's now reverted back to 87 where, it begins this absurd cycle all over again, downloading and installing 88.01.

What is this, only compatible with 20h2? My system does not yet have this.

In order to stop this madness. I've removed it, installed v74, threw a policy.json file together to block this from updating itself.

Hello, I can open firefox but I can't access any website. Firefox is completely blocked. Just a blank page. I can't access "option" or any other tab. I can't access internet. Since I'm not a developer I've decided to download a new version but can't seem to delete ALL the files from the previous firefox so when I upload the new I get the message impossible to execute the code VCRUNTIME_1.dll which isn't found. I don't know if it has anything to do with the problem but the "new" Firefox shows exactly the same issue. I can't access internet. I even tried to download, after deleting the firefox on my desktop, a firefox for businesses but the same message and the same issue. I've tried to delete absolutely all files Firefox from my laptop so I could download the browser as if I never had it on my computer but I'm not successful so the same issue shows up again and again. Thank you for your help.

Recently (a few days), I have noticed that math formulas are displayed as plain Latex code in a Moodle-based course viewed on my windows Firefox browser. There is no problem with other browsers and android devices. It seems to be related to the automatic update to the version 88 of the Firefox browser. Is any one else facing this problem? Does anybody know a solution?

Hello,

I've been getting an error for some time now. Firefox tabs suddenly crash (usually media tabs with video, like Twitch or video conference sites) and I can't seem to find a solution. But most importantly, many videos or live streams show graphic artifacts. You can check it in the attached screenshot). I have tried many things to solve it, but none worked. This is what I tried:

  • Changing cables and monitors.
  • Disabling extensions and plugins.
  • Disabling hardware acceleration.
  • Installing Firefox from scratch.
  • Installing an old version.
  • Installing Nightly.
  • Removing the GPU. The issue persisted with a different video card and with integrated graphics. So the GPU is not the issue.
  • Trying using another OS. I thought my Windows install might have been corrupt, but it also happened in Ubuntu.
  • Trying other browsers. I tried Chrome (which resulted in the issue as well) and Edge (which surprisingly did fine, it's my only solution right now).

I would love to keep using Firefox but it's a pain to watch media like this. I don't know if the issue might be from the motherboard or another component. Between the crashes and this I can't use it normally.

I can try providing any details needed to solve the problem. Could you please help me? I don't know what else I can try.

Hi,

In the context of an app using Pixi.js to render markers on a map, we have noticed that Firefox is unable to load SVG images from a data URL, as soon as they have a width/height in percentage.

Switching to a px size fixes the problem.

But what bothers me the most, is that this fails seems to be silent, there is no way to catch the error and bubble it up to the developer. So the image just never loads in our code, which makes the issue extremely difficult to figure.

See more information, and a reproduction with Pixi.js there: https://github.com/pixijs/pixi.js/issues/7473
