Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

Hello, I personally dislike the new address bar (also known as Megabar), mainly because it is enlarged without any user intervention, even if I only want to open a bookmark without typing anything in there.

Is there a setting in about:config to disable focus in the address bar for new tabs? Thanks.

I've been using Firefox to store logins and passwords and manage bookmarks on one computer for 10 years+. I always just opened a browser, clicked "tools" then went to my saved passwords. Today I got a new computer and wanted to sync with my Firefox from the old computer. The old computer is asking for a Firefox password, which I don't have (I've tried everything I can think of but I set it 10 years ago). I searched for help online and tried setting a "Master Password." Now, despite entering the EXACT password I selected, it is saying it's wrong and I'm locked out of all of my saved logins on the original computer as well.

I have a secondary email but nothing seems to generate a recovery email (yes, I am stupid and didn't enable recovery key and now I cannot do it because I don't have the password). Is there any way for me to get back into my saved logins? I am using the old computer to work from home and cannot complete any work now. The company sent me a brand new laptop, but all of my logins and passwords are on the old computer tha now wants a master password.

I installed Firefox on my mac a few months ago. Worked a LONG time to save/organize all of my bookmarks. For whatever reason.. was logged off or kicked off of Firefox. When I logged back in-all of my bookmarks were gone. I looked all over the site for help....and after trying one suggestion-thankfully....I was able to have a few of them returned to my sidebar. I am still missing many. I again searched all over the Help section; however, I have been unable to get them restored. If I manually re-enter as many as I can remember-how do I assure this doesn't happen again? And secondly, anyway I can continue to work to re-install the rest of them? I am missing my most recent bookmarks and unfortunately...I cannot recall the sites for the specific articles I wanted to research. If anyone is able to help me, please use simple computer terms/directions as I am not an IT specialist. :) THANK YOU in advance!!!

I have set various custom shortcuts for all apps on my mac in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > App Shortcuts. These are:

  • Ctrl + Opt + Left Arrow - Move Window to Left Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Right Arrow - Move Window to Right Side of Screen
  • Ctrl + Opt + Up Arrow - Zoom
  • Ctrl + Opt + Down - Move to Built-in Retina Display

These shortcuts work for all other applications on my mac (Catalina 10.15.4), but not with Firefox (version 76.0.1). On the Maximise window where these options reside via mouse, the shortcuts do show up, and pressing the options with a mouse does work, but the shortcuts do not.

I have a W7 laptop with IE 11, and Firefox. I need both browsers for different programs (scan and to deposit checks, and Mozilla to manage photos in my website). I never run the browsers simultaneously. When I use Firefox, all is well until I suddenly see a blue screen with a bunch of printing. The screen does not last long enough for me to read everything, but it does mention if this is not the first time I've seen this screen, I am supposed to do something with BIOS chaching or shadowing. I have NO idea what this means or how to do this, as I use my computer for basic, simple programs. I haven't downloaded any new programs, and have been reluctant to download new Firefox patches since the blue screen seemed to happen more frequently after updating Firefox. I've scanned for viruses, and have also run chk dsc, to no avail. This never happens when I use IE11, only when I use Firefox. If someone has any suggestions, I would appreciate it. However, please don't tell me to get W10. I don't care how wonderful this OS is supposed to be, I cannot use it. My one laptop with W10 has only been used once and I refuse to use it. If you have suggestions, please explain them simply since I am NOT computer saavy. Thank you.

My internet and computer are fast. Recently, with the latest versions, it is taking about 5 seconds before a website starts to appear. If I close the tab and go back to the website, it is almost instant.

What is ff doing that is taking it so long. Is it verifying the website or some such thing? How can I speed this up.

Chrome and Edge both load the sites instantly as well, so it's FF that is slow, but only on the first visit after launching FF.
