cmd+numbers on alphanumeric keys should switch to respective tab (cmd+1 to 1st tab, cmd+5 to fifth...). With CZ keyboard layout on MacOS, cmd+1 does NOT switch to first tab, it Zooms In instead. No other browser (Edge, Safari, Opera, Orion) exhibits this behaviour. Other numbers work as expected.

FF 98.0.2 on Monterey 12.2.1.

How do I fix this? Thanks.

Hi,

My wife & I have used Firefox for some considerable time now and like it a lot.

However, we have been having trouble with Firefox recently and wonder if you are aware of this. It manifests itself in a very subtle way with only some FEATURES of a particular website not operating, (but no ‘warning’ messages whatsoever).

To begin with, I was at a loss to understand why something didn’t work but, now that this has happened to me on THREE different websites (with features that work perfectly well under MS Edge!), I have come to the conclusion that Firefox is the only “common denominator”.

The first problem was with https://www.parcel2go.com. They have a “Live Help” (Chat) feature. It no longer works with Firefox!

The second was with https://account.patientaccess.com. Try to order “repeat prescriptions” and all is well – until you hit “send”. It no longer works with Firefox!

Today, I have discovered that with https://www.bt.com I am now longer able to access my BT email accounts. Furthermore, they also have a “chat” facility – except that is now also ‘invisible’ to Firefox!

I have seen mention that DuckDuckGo (which I also use) might be involved here?

What’s happened?!!

I get "Your connection is not secure" when trying to get any Mighty Networks website. I have a 2018 Macbook pro and both the iOS and Firefox are at current levels. I have attached the error message as an image. These websites are accessible by Safari.

Both websites require a signin and this may be a key part as they are available and viewable without signing in.

One of the websites is here: https://whatschoolcouldbe.org This is the site that causes a problem after I have registered for it. https://community.whatschoolcouldbe.org/feed

Hi, I have found issues recently trying to get to certain website addresses where I end up with a blank page when using Firefox. These previously worked fine. I then used the same address on MS Edge and I get to the site and the the page I wish to be on. I have to admit that this did not happen prior to my installing MS Edge. Interstingly, the two websites I found this happening had to do with approaching Photo-Voltaic websites, one being FoxESS (Chinese Equipment Manufacturer's data logging facility) and the other being SMA (a German similar Manufacturer's data logging facility). I think this has nothing to do with the sector they represent but is a reaction of my Windows 10 system having another program from MS that wishes to dominate their opposition's performance. (Is this me being paranoid?).

The first one to do this, was when I approached "https://www.foxesscloud.com/bus/device/inverter" and the second one was "https://www.sunnyportal.com/FixedPages/HoManEnergyRedesign.aspx" These require 'logins' when you get there. I would be happy to pass these on to you if it is necessary.

I have endeavoured to get away from MS from time to time, but it does not seem to be a simple exercise. So I tend to go with the flow that works.

By the bye, I use system cleaning software regularly (Glary Utilities 5, MalwareBytes) and some others occasionally and all seem to say they get rid of 'trackers' and and 'malware'). I also use Kaspersky for internet protection and that seems to work well. So my system seems 'clean', but whether MS has buried something somewhere I cannot assess. As it is only affecting a couple of sites, I think I may be experiencing something quite different. Any ideas? Thanks.

With Devtools open and Responsive Design Mode active, selecting a device from the Device list and then right-clicking causes the context menu to appear in the lower right of the screen (figure-1 or first image if filenames aren't shown).

Depending on where I click, the menu shrinks (figure-2, second image).

Using the same device, if I type, "412" in the width box, it changes to Responsive Design Mode. After that, it works as it should (figure-3, last image). Notice that I clicked in the exact same spot as the first image.

I've tried safe mode; deleting all my profiles; none of those worked.

recent updates have caused accessibility problems with atleast 2 of the websites I use alot. One of them is my credit union. Both my laptop and desk top computers will not allow me access to either of these sites. I'm about to be finished with Firefox. This is not the first time this has happened and I don't know the what the gentleman did the last time to fix it. I'm very frustrated. I need help and no where are there clear and easy directions on how to fix this.

I am asking a question I have seen asked a hundred times but I've never seen answered. I will start with firefox is NOT in full screen. A number of updates back all tabs but the one currently being viewed has become blacked out. All that is visible is a firefox symbol or if it's a search page, the google symbol. Not the page title as before. Before the update all tab details were visible at all times. How do I revert to having my tab details being displayed so I don't have to go through all tabs to find the one I want. I don't want to know another way of finding a particular page I have open, just how to bring back the tab information as it always was. I'm very close to changing browsers because of this tragic improvement firefox has implemented.

I'm on a Windows machine. In the past, when I clicked on a link in email, a new tab was opened in Firefox leaving existing tabs active. This has recently changed and now opens in the active tab.

I know about CTRL/Click, but this doesn't work from within Outlook.

I tried a hack in about:config, but found that everything opened in a new tab. For example when clicking on a search list within eBay, every click then opened a new tab. There seem to a lot of tab related config settings there, so I have done a reset to get FF back to its default behavior.

If there a way to open links in a new tab without forcing every click (say to the same domain) in a new tab?

Might this have something to do with the new container feature?

I can't open any WordOnline documents from OneDrive/Sharepoint on Firefox. I click on the document, a new tab open, but then the doc itself doesn't load.

I am running the most recent version of Firefox (98.4 64 bit) on an iMac running Catalina 10.15.7 (19H1715)

I don't have the same problem on my Windows machine.

(Note: I was able to access the same document using Safari)

Any ideas?
