Since updating to Firefox 93.0, I notice that downloads from certain sites are being blocked, because they are using a basic HTTP connection, requiring me to explicitly allow each download. I understand that this is a new "feature," as explained here: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2021/10/05/firefox-93-protects-against-insecure-downloads/, however, I in no way desire this behavior. It is an asinine nuisance, and if I cannot disable it, I will have no choice but to revert to an early version of Firefox. My question, then is this: is it possible to disable this check, and simply allow all downloads? If so, how can I do that?

After installing FF ver. 91 for Mac OS (desktop) GMail will no longer load its themes, and only appears as a black and white simple HTML version. Many of the page functions are there, but invisible, and can only be found by hovering the cursor over the general area where these active and regularly used GMail features are on the page. Many page elements also have wire frames around them. Even the GMail log in portal screen is not displaying correctly. The Google Workspace logo also fails to fully animate when navigating to the login page.

Reverting to older versions, FF 89 and 90 proves that the problem is with FF 91. The issue does not affect Safari or Chrome in my experience. Totally clearing all cache, cookies, sync'ed profiles and user accounts in this FF product does not fix this issue with FF 91.

This appears to be an interface bug that needs to be sorted. Can you please help?

hi,

Maybe someone had the same problem, I use two security option outside of Firefox: 1. /etc/hosts file, all the site that I do not want to allow my machine to interact with; source: https://github.com/StevenBlack/ 2. VPNs anti tracking scripts

I use a mac, Mac OS 11.6 Firefox 93.0


With all the two security option enabled, Safari works fine, TOR works fine, Firefox has massive issues with loading pages speed. Some of the Firefox settings: Network Settings: the DNS over HTTPS is OFF, as I am using a VPN Privacy and Security: set to standard, but there is no difference is loading speed when switching to strict Extensions: I use 1password, multi account containers and user agent switcher; no difference is loading speed if I disable or remove all extensions

Any idea why is Firefox loading page speed effected?

Many Thanks Michael

Any window associated with Paypal loads but the page is tiny. I have to zoom in order to read the page, login, etc. There is no problem with actually logging in.

I opened FFOX in safe mode with the same result. Also cleared the startup cache.

Running 2016 MBP with Big Sur 11.5.1. Neither Safari nor Chrome have this issue.

Any help is appreciated!

Hi, I am new to Firefox. I just attempted top print a shipping label and this image showed in the popup window. I have searched but cannot find a way to adjust the settings. I am unable to access the options in the menu on the right. I did find adjustable options from the menu bar print options but they didn't change in this window. I appreciate any help. Thank you.

Hello, My problem is that every time I go to log in to my PayPal account or work with some settings I get multiple question marks instead of words/letters. (see Screen Shot: https://jmp.sh/EYpj4pJ ) It only happens with the Firefox browser.

I have done what Firefox support recommends for troubleshooting, such as: Turn off extensions, reset preferences, restart, Start Firefox in Safe Mode, delete PayPal cookies, and clear cache. I also tried to disable hardware acceleration but, this doesn't apply to this version because it's not there (see Screen Shot: https://jmp.sh/wEZqkcP) but, the problem continues.

I already talk to PayPal Support because It only happens when using PayPal. They say that this is a Firefox problem since it works fine in other browsers.

I ask: Is there a problem between PayPal and Firefox that I should know about?

FF is offering me two versions of my e-mail when I login to a website where I have specifically told it to 'never' remember a password. The little black selection dropdown shows both myUserName@myMailserver.com myUserName@myMailserver.co When I click to login page of 'website.com'. It does not offer this for all websites that use e-mail address as login.

I have checked and the website in question shows up in 'never save' exceptions to my 'ask to save usernames and passwords'.

So I have no saved passwords to remove for that site--when I look up 'website.com', I get nothing.

2 questions: why does FF continue to offer a login name for that site?

FF 93.04 beta (will be updated in a few minutes to next version) MacOS 11.6 Big Sur and where can I find and zap 'myUserName@myMailserver.co' without losing all of my other logins & passwords that I do allow FF to store for me?

I use an iMac with 3 displays as follows:

[1080p] - [1080p MAIN] - [2048x11152 Retina]

I use all 3 displays for browser windows but primarily the centre one.

When I drag a Firefox tab from the 1080p screens to the Retina screen, the UI is way too small to work with. All other applications seem to scale the UI properly though.

I'm attaching screenshots of: 1. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the 1080p display (both have suitable UI sizes) 2. the same website in Chrome vs Firefox on the Retina display (Firefox's UI is too small)

Is there any way to resolve this short of increasing the Firefox UI scale globally (which would take too much space on the 1080p screens)?

I'm using: MacOS 11.2.3 Firefox 88.0

thanks! Dean

I've got a new computer I am setting up from scratch, and though I have set FF to sync settings, I'm still having to customize a lot. My bookmarks toolbar is crowded again with icons and I'd like those to go away. I don't mind other icons staying around on the tabs--that does help me navigate faster. I had this set up before, but lost the setting when I refreshed Firefox.

Hi! Netflix used to work great in Firefox on my Mac OS X 10.11.6 macbook. Now I've been getting an error message saying "Looks like your browser is no longer supported" when trying to play video on Netflix and it won't play. I noticed that it self-updated a couple times over the last few days but these updates did not solve the problem. I'm hoping that this problem can be fixed so that I can keep watching Netflix on Firefox, as I find Chrome and other browsers are very slow and laggy compared to Firefox. Thanks :)

Yesterday I went to my history to locate a prior site I had visited. There was only 1 site in history, which of course surprised me, and it was to CapitalOne.com/link accounts. This is my credit card company. I removed Firefox from my Macbook and then re-downloaded Firefox and installed. Nothing has changed. My settings are correct, meaning that I should be able to have sites visited in history, yet only the one site populates, and I've been to a lot of sites today....the credit card/link accounts site is the only site that is in history. You can imagine how nervous I am right now about doing anything on line. I sure hope that someone will help out here.
