So i use a mac and like other mac users a bit sad that my text replacements doesnt work in Firefox. I know there are add-ons and i know it is not possible to turn it on for Firefox. I want to ask if we could see this before long in a future Firefox update, or if this is something that wont happen, at least for now.

Firefox keeps rolling back to previous version no matter what I do

I have Firefox 105.0.2 (64-Bit) installed on my Macbook. I have turned off the automatic update function and checked that it is set to false in about:config. Nonetheless, about 2 or 3 times a day at seemingly random times, Firefox will suddenly stop loading websites and instead show me the message "An update was installed, please restart Firefox to keep using". When I restart Firefox, the application forces me to create a new profile because the current profile is 'not compatible with older versions of Firefox', and then when the browser finally starts up, it shows that it has rolled back to the version 104.X.

I then have to manually reinstall the 105.X version update and manually reactivate my profile in about:profiles to continue using Firefox with my bookmarks etc.

This is wildly frustrating and slowing down my work. I feel like I have tried everything: I have done a full uninstall/reinstall twice, run FF in safe mode, run the 'Clean up Firefox' tool... I am hoping there is another potential solution I have missed as I would hate to have to stop using my favourite browser :'(

Can anyone help?

I used to open Google-related stuff like Gmail or YouTube in the Personal container using the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension. Recently, I've decided that I don't want to do it anymore. However, every time I try to load YouTube, it asks me "Open this site in your assigned Container?". Even when I say no and turn on the checkbox "Remember my decision", it still asks it every time.

Is there any way to fix this behavior?

Thank you!

As of today ( perhaps the last update ) FireFox replaces the search text in the 'Find in page' box with my name ( perhaps my Mac account name ) when I leave the browser tab for another and then return.

It seems to happen with tabs containing locally stored html files, not with regular web pages

I could not find anything about this in the settings nor the support forum.

Artstation and a blank screen

Hello,

I'm having trouble with Artstation, and to be specific, whenever I click on an image to look at full, a blank screen shows up instead of the usual webpage format. The home page is fine, and the artists home page are fine, but when I click on an image, it's just a blank white page.

I've tried trouble shooting mode, and it seems to be one of my extensions - I use the bare minimum of the recommended set. I would like to not lose any of them - 1Password, Cookie AutoDelete, Disable WebRTC, Firefox's own Multi-Container extension, Ghostery, HTTPS everywhere, and uBlock Origin - for my own web browsing needs & I feel it unnecessary to use a different browser for one specific website. All the usual sites I venture out to work fine, it's just when clicking on the images to look at full view.

I do apologize for my ignorance if this question is more suited for Artstations support team, but thought it'd be best to ask here first.

So what actions should I take next, other than going one by one for each extension?

Many thanks in advance.

After I upgrade Firefox to Version 105, it seems had problem with play video on YouTube as huge lost of frames, and still happened in Version 105.0.2. Attachment 1 is to play video with Firefox and attachment 2 is with Safari. And the battery usage with Firefox when play video is about 3 times faster than usual.

I use latest version of macOS Monterey with Intel CPU. If anyone could help me find the problem, I will be appreciated.

Full-screen video doesn't stretch to sides of display on M2 MacBook Air

The attached photos show that the video does not reach the left and right sides of the display. I know that the video not stretching to the top and bottom of the display is normal. The display is 16:10 and the video is 16:9 or 21:9 (plus, the new MacBook notch/menu bar thing). The only way to stop the issue from happening is to put the Firefox app in full-screen mode before putting a video in full-screen mode.

  • The issue is across all websites (YouTube; HBO Max; Netflix; Hulu; etc.).
  • It happens every time I launch a video in full-screen
  • The only way to avoid the issue is to put the Firefox app in full-screen first, then launch the video in full-screen
  • This issue has been happening since I got the laptop last month
  • I've checked all my extensions to ensure they aren't responsible
  • This doesn't happen in Safari or Chrome

My computer is an M2 MacBook Air; the display is set to its default resolution of 2560 x 1664. It's running macOS Monterey version 12.6 and Firefox version 105.0.1.
