After updating to Firefox version 87 on Mac, nearly every site I try to visit seems to be blocked. There is no warning or explanation shown it just fails to browse to the website. For example, I cannot browse to https://llbean.com. I understand that these websites have all sorts of trackers built-in, but this seems a bit ridiculous. I cannot find an explanation of how to fix this problem that is up-to-date and actually works.

There is a thin border around the Firefox browser when it is not in full screen mode.

It disappears in full screen mode.

Is there a way to remove this border without having to use the browser in full screen?

Zapamiętywanie zakładek przed zamknięciem przeglądarki

cześć, Posiadam OS Big Sur Mac Mini i mam pytanie, dlaczego na tym komputerze nie działa zapamiętywanie otwartych kart (przywracanie sesji)? Zaznaczyłam w opcjach: przywracanie poprzednich sesji, ale to nie działa. Nie rozumiem tego. Jak miałam Windowsa, to nigdy nie było z tym problemu. A pracuje przy kilkudziesięciu otwartych kartach i nie wyobrażam sobie, żebym miała je za każdym razem otwierać pojedynczo... Z jednej grupy wsparcia Apple dostałam informacje, że Mac ma swoją przeglądarkę: Safarii i żebym jej zaczęłam używać. Ale ja nie chcę innej przeglądarki. Mam za dużo zapamiętanych kart, żeby je przenosić i nie chcę uczyć się kolejnej aplikacji. Dodatkowo powiedziano mi, że Mac nie lubi innych oprogramowań niż swoje. Idąc tym torem, nie można by używać Photoshopa, Adobe PDF, i wiele wiele innych aplikacji, bo Mac ich nie wyprodukował... To jakiś absurd! Proszę o pomoc, jak otwierać przeglądarkę z kartami z poprzedniej sesji?

I have installed Firefox as my default browser on a new iMac, but every time I open Firefox (after quitting it or shutting down my computer) it asks me AGAIN if i want to set Firefox as my default browser. If I say "yes", I have to start all over again setting My Yahoo as my home(opening) page and reset all the bookmark shortcuts I've put into my bookmarks tool bar.

I've confirmed in Firefox, in Safari, and in System Preferences that Firefox is set as my default browser. I've uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox.

4/15/21 Hi I have reviewed the posts of individuals (draculas.tomb, jscher2000, chasdobie) from 3/11-3/18/2021; who were having a similar problem accessing the email account through centurylink.net. I tried the suggested fixes through confirming DNS and changing TLS, and I still cannot access my email account. I get an error "redir.peridot.synacor.com/?to=zmail&u_d..."

Hey, my website "www.kosmetikstuebchen-nicole.de" is not correctly displaying in Firefox Browser. In Google Chrome, Opera and Safari there is no problem. You can see the problem on the screenshot. I still ask my provider "Host Europe" if they are able to explain, why during using the Firefox Browser the website is not correct. They just told me, that maybe there might be a problem with the accessability view, but they were not able to solve the problem! Is there anybody who can help me to solve that problem? Thanks a lot!

Hi guys~ for some reasons I can't add bookmarks on my firefox browsers. At first, the marked webpage will only show names but not the link, when i click on the bookmarks that i saved it won't direct me to page. Now even worse, the bookmark function doesn't work at all. I tried restore all my settings and redownloaded firefox three times, it's always the same problem. Also the history function doesn't store my current browsing history at all. I 100% sure I didn't change anything at the privacy section.

Attempted to sign into our Spectrum account using our primary browser, Firefox. The UName and PWord are correct. When Sign In is chosen Spectrum looks like it is trying to sign in but after a few seconds we get the message "We're sorry, something didn't work quite right. Please try again. IDID-1060". BTW, I have no problem signing in using Safari, which is not the browser I use very often.

I removed the Spectrum cookies, site data and save logins from Firefox. Then I restarted Firefox (newest version available) and still could not log into Spectrum. I then went to the Firefox Help menu and chose Troubleshooting Information. In the list of three things to do on the right side I did not need to "Give Firefox a tune up", did not "Try Safe Mode" but did "Try clearing the startup cache". This message came up "Restart Firefox to clear startup cache. This will not change your settings or remove extensions you’ve added to Firefox." I chose restart. After the restart I could sign into Spectrum. I signed out of Spectrum and tried again to sign in, I could not do so. I repeated clearing the startup cache and signing in worked again.

Is there an explanation for this issue? Is there a fix?

I was using Duck Duck Go to search on subjects, and as I was looking at the pages it listed I suddenly could not open any of the links returned at all. I have Firefox set to open links in a new tab, but it stopped working suddenly, and would not open the links at all. Why might this be?

I had a different issue I came here for, but I discovered a very serious bug while I was writing my question, so I want to make sure this gets addressed first.

After writing my question, I clicked the "share data" button below. I got a message "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps. " Without thinking, I clicked the link to the "manual steps." Unfortunately, instead of opening a new tab, which would be the expected behavior, clicking the link took me off the get help form page (the page I'm on as I write this). What's worse, when I used the back button to return to the previous page, everything I'd written was gone. Obviously, the expected behavior would be to not take the user off the page in the first place, but if for some reason it did, to autosave the writing so it can be restored when the user returns.

This kind of bug used to be a lot more common in the early days, when I first started using the web, 25 years ago. I used to have a boilerplate describing the problem because I was sending reports of the bug so frequently. I've only encountered it twice, to my recollection, in the last 5 years. Firefox's website would have been one of the last places I'd ever expect to find a bug this glaring and elementary.

Thanks!

I am working in an online class and we are asked to record videos in an online platform for school. When I go to hit the play button on anyone's video I get an error message. This does not happen in other browsers, but I want to keep using Firefox. Is there a privacy or cookie setting that could be causing this to happen?

The problems I've had with Firefox keep growing. First it was PNC Bank, then Unite Airlines, and now Winter Park Resort. Operating in Safe Mode long term is not an option. After years of using Firefox as my default browser it is no longer worth the hassle. Moving to Safari. If you all ever fix these issues let me know, and I will return. Thank you for your time and attention, Andy

When I'm browsing articles or news stories or what-have-you on the web, I would like to be able to read the information I came from without all the distracting stuff on the sides and top (or worse, the kind of pop-ups that can't be blocked, because they are JS-generated in the same page). Article mode is great for this, but can I have it automatically enable to help prevent me from distracting myself?
