I have installed Firefox and Firefox Beta on MacOS and open them in that order so both are running concurrently; Firefox (not beta!) is selected as the default browser on my computer. Whenever I follow a link from any application that is not a browser, the link opens in Firefox Beta.

My expectation is that links would open in the browser that is set as the default.

Is there any way I can tell the Operating System to open new tabs in Firefox and not in Firefox Beta?

Today when I started Firefox it auto-updated to version 77, and all web-pages looked like a mess of weird symbols like the ones in the screenshot I attached.

I tried disabling all addons and plugins, and some other stuff but nothing worked.

So I downgraded to 76.0.1 and everything works fine, it's definetly a problem with version 77.

I guess I won't be updating until I know this problem was adressed.

Guten Morgen,

meine Passwörter sind plötzlich weg, ich möchte keinen Brauser der die Passwörter vergisst. Warum passiert dies immer wieder?  

Es sollte eine sehr einfache Rückhohkung geben und nicht so ein umständliches Suchen nach den vorhandenen Passwörtern und der Rückholung!!!

Ich habe ein umfangreiche Internetseite von über 30 Domain etc. wie soll ich da die ganzen

Passwörter merken!!!

Es ist ein Unding, wenn Firefox plötzlich die Passwörter nicht anzeigt, so ist dies eine Stundenlange Arbeit!!!

Ich bin sehr unzufrieden mit Firefox

Hi everybody, I'm running Firefox 77.0 on my 2014 rMBP with OSX 10.11.6. A few hours ago my OS crashed and I reset my computer. Once I did this, I opened everything back as it was pre-crash and all my Firefox tabs and absolutely everything else loaded correctly except for my history.

Every time I type a word, no previously visited URLs will load up in my URL field, I checked my History and it seems to have deleted 99% of every site I've visited. The recently closed tabs and windows are still there, and I can reload them if I press cmd+shift+t, however the rest of my actual history seems to be gone. I've reset (normally) my computer a couple more times, repaired disk permissions and whatnot and for some reason it won't even save whatever other sites I've now visited since it was wiped. Am I screwed here?

So after updating to Firefox 77.0, I have noticed that despite having browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon set to false, it Firefox insists on placing the audio icon in my tabs regardless.

Is there a way to get rid of it, perhaps with CSS or something?

I have a network printer setup on Ubuntu 20.04 (an lpr printer). In every application, if I select control-P, the print dialog box immediately snaps onto the screen. But on Firefox 76.01, it takes at least 30 seconds for the print dialog box to appear. This is the case every time I select control-P. Printing works as expected, it just takes forever to get the print dialog box to come up. I have tried resetting Firefox and clearing all print-related preferences in prefs.j then restarted Firefox. Nothing seems to resolve this problem. I tried Chrome to see if all browsers were affected and it brings up the dialog box quickly. Has anyone else run into this issue?

Hi

I am using Firefox on Mac OS Sierra and I manage a number of websites using Joomla. I've had a problem for at least a year whereby Joomla admin keeps on quitting when I'm navigating around the system in Firefox.

I finally gave up using Firefox for this purpose and I always use Google Chrome instead, and I've never had this problem occur in Chrome. I thought it might be related to my specific install, but on a couple of occasions when I've tried to use it on my laptop, which has a pretty pristine installation of FF, the same thing has happened.

However more problems seem to be surfacing over time, principally: 1. I am frequently unable to click a link on a web page until I refresh the page 2. Problems completing online forms. For example I just tried to make a payment transfer in Paypal but was unable to type in the amount. When I logged in with Chrome instead, it worked fine.

Firefox has been my preferred browser for a very long time and I'd like to continue using it as my main browser, but unless I can eliminate these sorts of problems.

I wonder if anyone has experienced similar problems and if they have found a solution to them?

Many thanks Jennie

Hi

For some reason, Firefox changes the order of bookmarks in the adress field. For instance, when I type "yout" to search among my youtube bookmarks, the most recents aren't the first ones suggested. I've noticed this 2-3 weeks ago and I still don't understand why that is. Does anyone know?

Buenas. Llevo utilizando Firefox casi casi desde Windows 95. Y siempre ha ido fino y buen, con velocidad, sin problemas y con una experiencia superior casi siempre, al resto de navegadores. Pero desde las últimas actualizaciones de Firefox, ésto ha cambiado. Tengo la versión 76.0.1(64 bits). Y llevo mucho mucho tiempo con problemas, que me han cansado y he decidido que hasta aquí he llegado. Tengo instalados además, Chrome y Edge. Chrome me parece pesado, porque abre un montón de procesos que no pido, no necesito y me ralentizan el ordenador. Edge no me gusta. Sí que lo veo ágil y Microsoft le ha lavado la cara mucho. Pero no me gusta, y no me da confianza. Al contrario de Firefox. Pero arrastro los siguientes problemas, para que veáis lo impertinente que soy: 1. Imposibilidad de instalar complementos, como puede ser por ejemplo, el de LetyShop. 2. Muchas veces, la página no carga. Se queda en blanco, intentando acceder, pero nada. La mayoría de las ocasiones, refresco y funciona. Pero, no es lo suyo. 3. No tengo bloqueadores. No tengo anti-pops, salvo los que pueda tener por defecto Firefox. Mi antivirus tampoco los bloquea. Pero muchas páginas me dicen que no pueden abrir ventanas. Son páginas de trabajo (IBM, por ejemplo) donde no creo que haya código malicioso. Y sin embargo, algo impide que Firefox las abra. Antes, era puntual. Ahora es cansino. 4. De vez en cuando, pierdo la sesión abierta. Si. Tengo muchas ventanas. Pero me es imposible recuperarlas porque no funciona el histórico bien, no hay posibilidad de recuperarla entera, y es cansino tener que ir una a una abriendo. Y en la ayuda... bueno. Llamarle ayuda es un decir. Tontería diría yo, porque quien pone esas cosas, lo ha hecho en una versión prehistórica (no coincide a veces ni las opciones del menú que se indica...) y desde luego, no ha probado lo que predica.

Es una pena. Voy a dar un voto de confianza, porque la verdad, tanto en pc como en el móvil, siempre he usado Firefox. Pero me canso de tanto problema. Espero que esta situación cambie pronto. Mientras, voy a buscar un sustituto, que seguramente será Chrome.

Un saludo.

New Tabs and even sometimes first tab do not load any page and become just "dead"

Open in New Tab and Ctr T is like a roll of dice now, the same page sometimes loads sometimes doesn't, usually closing FF and re-opening solves it.

This has been happening quite frequently so I tried several builds and solutions, uninstalled and reinstalled with new profile, safe mode, no add-ons or themes, both 32 and 64 bit, ESR, etc.. (I'm on Win10 64 bit)

If anyone is experiencing something similar or have an idea let me know please I've been using Firefox for longer than I remember and I would hate to switch now

when Firefox is closed and a link is clicked, firefox opens with 2 windows, one with the link location and one with my home page. This happens without fail, so when an email with a link that I want to open is pressed with the app closed. It doesnt happen if Firefox is already open. This has been going on for months, I have reinstalled OSX Catalina to see if that was the problem but to no avail.

Does anyone have any ideas
