I don't understand why FitnessBlender.com looks all out of wack, it has been like this for as long as I can remember. Font is all crazy and overlapping, hard to even navigate the page. Have also noticed FF is loading everything slowly lately especially FB, which eventually stops loading as you scroll through the feed. I have cleared my caches etc to speed it up but has gone back to being slow. I have loved the concepts available with FF and hate to stop using it but it has become annoying.

Hi Support help!

In the last few days or so it seems these notifications are showing up after I log off and the computer goes to sleep. When I wake up the notifications are showing in the right side of my Mac.

Now today they are even more aggressive and stacking up.

I've managed my Apple security settings and activated the natural firewall that comes with my Mac.

My Mac is up to date with latest operational systems.

My Firefox browser form Mozilla is up to date.

I've never experienced this problem previous and I've been using Mac since 2005. I upgrade every few years. and my latest Mac computer is about a year 1/2 old.

I have no other issues with my computer or my browser, Firefox.

I've been troubleshooting this through Mozilla support and have no add-ons or newly installed plugins.

I have no plug ins installed.

I've looked at my Firefox security settings and I did not have the pop-up blocker on but I'm not experiencing any issues with pop ups per se and I use Adobe creative cloud and have many other sites I use that have pop up window to enter data and perform functions so I'm not going to set it to cause me problems getting my work done since that is not even the issue here.


This concern is a notification that keeps showing up and I started by clearing my cache space On Mozilla Firefox privacy settings.

Now I'm asking to see if there is something else I can do to stop this notifications form happening. Its likely a simple answer I simply over looked?

When I go into my notifications on Apple Mac notifications are allowed and in many cases I need them but in this case as this recent events of odd spammy notifications on Firefox I don't need them unless they are real and I need to do something.

I did not click on any of them or try to open them.

These notifications describe needing to stop viruses, my computer is at risk, urgent with red caution symbols and other urgent notifications. My Mozilla Firefox account does not show anything like that and all my security updates are done for Firefox.

Help, please? Is it something obvious or am I needing to take certain actions?

I've cleared the Firefox cache in accessing info on the settings. And when I send this I will close and restart my computer.

Maybe nothing but a few days ago doing research I clicked a article that seemed fine in my search results but it took me to a completely different page and it asked to allow or not allow notifications. I clicked away form the page by closing out the tab.

They could be related but I haven't figure out how to stop it. Thanks in advance.

Arigato, Namaste.

I cannot log into certain web sites using Passwords with Firefox. Yesterday I was unable to upload an invoice on the Kensington.com site. Today I am totally blocked in my city's municipal web site. https://www.newtonma.gov/ I am trying to report a missed recycling pickup at their "301" site on the front page, and I have an account, but it will not accept the existing passwords and trying to change it blocked any further efforts, giving me a dead end by saying any password I use with Firefox is invalid. It's not all sites but it is some sites. The problem occurs with both Firefox 99.0 and Firefox99.01. Using it on a Mac running Big Sur, 11.6.5

I have two computers, one for personal use and one for business. Somehow the tabs between the two computers are being shared and I cannot disable it. Both browsers are signed into different Firefox accounts, Sync is turned off on both, and there are no connected devices. Yet despite that, when I go to one computer, it pops up a Firefox icon (see attached) in the taskbar that lets me open the tab open on the other computer. This is incredibly frustrating and Firefox should not automatically share this information, and should not make it so difficult to disable.

I want to be able to close Firefox and have all cookies and site data removed - but I want to keep my history.

Checking the box to do just this in 'Privacy & Security' will delete cookies when I close Firefox - but all the site data remains. Under 'History' I have 'use custom settings' enabled, as well as 'remember browsing and download history'. I've tried various permutations of this, but can't get it to do what Firefox says it will.

Being able to do this is one of the main reason I want to use Firefox, but it doesn't seem to work. I have to manually delete both cookies and site data.

Any suggestions to try to delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes, but remember history?

Hi there. I'm in the process of switching from Chrome and I want to import my passwords.

I first tried the 'import from Chrome' option - it says it's successful, but nothing has actually been added. Same result after several attempts.

I then tried the csv route. I found out I had to change the config settings, so I did just that, but the 'import CSV' option still isn't showing even after a reset.

So now I'm at a dead end. Any bright ideas please? TIA!

FYI I'm using Firefox 99.0.1

My macbook is a 2019 16", running Monterey 12.3.1, and has the touch ID sensor on the top right of the keyboard. I love having it for all my log-ins, but can only make it work in Safari. When I look online I'm told to go into settings> privacy > and then just choose the toggle to turn it on. My version of Firefox (which says it's up to date) does not have that option in the Privacy and Security section of settings. Any thoughts? I'd rather use Firefox than Safari, but that is a HUGE feature to me. Thanks!

When I click on a "mailto" link, Firefox (my default browser) opens a new tab, then immediately close that tab without waiting for my to interact with it. No draft email is created. I see that other users have reported this behavior in the past, and I've tried the suggested remedies without success. Specifically, I ran Malwarebytes, and it found no threats. I then started Firefox (on the Mac) via the Option key (to start it without ad-ons), and that does not change the behavior. I'm on ver 99.0.1 of FF, which is up to date as of 4/20/2022 (today). My Mac OS is also up to date (ver 12.3.1). My Mac is a 2021 MacBookPro with the Apple M1 Pro chip. I use gmail. OTHER BROWSER (like Safari and Chrome) can open "mailto" links in a new tab in FF (which is my default browser, and used for mailto links) just fine! Here is an example of the URL that I see in a new FF tab opened via Chome: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?fs=1&tf=cm&source=mailto&su=Cover+of+the+River+Journal&to=Steve+Mones%3Cstevenmones@optonline.net%3E Any help would be appreciated. - Thanks, Jim

A short while ago, Firefox was automatically updated to 99.0.1 on my iMac running Monterey 12.3.1. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, the search engine is stuck on Amazon with no other search engine options available. I normally use Google.

Even if I go into the Firefox settings to the "Search" panel, it is showing ONLY Amazon as the available option in the pull-down menu under "Default Search Engine". In the "Search Bar" section, I have it set to "Add search bar in tool bar". But even if I set it to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", and then switch it back to "Add search bar in tool bar", Amazon still remains the only available search engine.

As a last step, I installed the "Google Search" add-on by 3Indian to see if I could get back my Google search engine, but Google still doesn't show up as an option anywhere, and I am still stuck with just Amazon.

Is this a bug in the latest Firefox build? Did the developers forget to enable something when they did this build perhaps?

Hi everyone,

Last Saturday, I was able to sign in to Firefox Add-Ons Firefox Add-Ons and submit a pre-release of an add-on I'm working on. But today, I'm being forced to enable 2FA to simply log in to the site. I don't want to enable 2FA, I just don't need it. Can someone explain me why is this happening ? Can I just log in and submit my add-on's update ?

I've tried to sign in two different MacBooks (M1 12.1 and Yosemite 10.10.5), using two different Firefox versions (99.0.1 and 78.15.0esr). Also, I haven't enabled 2FA in my personal account.

Hi, I tried to download a script but Firefox warned me it had a virus / malware. So I immediately put it in trash, emptied trash, restarted my Macbook and used Bitdefender to scan my Mac. Fortunately it detected no viruses. So I think I'm good (Hopefully!)

But, every time I open Firefox now, a little window appears at the top showing my last download and telling me it had a virus or malware - I'm posting a screenshot of this. I removed it from my history, and cleared the preview panel, but it still pops up. To be clear, this only happens when I completely close Firefox and reopen it, not when I just open new windows or tabs.

How can I get it to stop popping up with this message? Also - one other oddity, each time I open Firefox, it says the time this script was downloaded matches the time I open Firefox (as opposed to when I actually downloaded the pdf - about an hour ago)
