Could not go through process of changing my password for a bank website, called bank, it was suggested to clear my history and cache in Firefox, I did so. This allowed the automated process of changing my password to process through ok. I could then not sign in to that website or another site with firefox. either auto sign in or manually entering my credentials. I can sign in to all my websites in MS Edge. Not in firefox. I have cleared my cache and the "Corrupt cache" file. also checked the error log and it is not being caused by a security certificate issue. Can anyone assist me? I would appreciate any help. It is not critical as I can sign in through a different browser and it is only happening on a couple websites but it is annoying. Thanks Art

Weird "Scratching Noise" on Sound Output

Hi all,

MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2019) macOS Big Sur - 20A5374i Firefox 82.0b3

This is a rather weird one to try and explain.

Ever since macOS Big Sur Public Beta's -- and a mix of Firefox Stable and most recently, a few Beta versions the following happens:

When streaming any form of video/audio via Firefox -- YouTube comes to mind especially -- and swapping between tabs or other Windows or hitting screen resize, pausing/resume.. or just general usage while a stream is happening -- an incredibly weird "scratching" noise is experienced over the sound output. I mainly use the built-in MacBook Pro Sound.

Incredibly difficult to reproduce this, but I am not under high usage/load at the time that it occurs and sometimes am.

Will keep this thread updated if I find a way to reproduce -- but hoping someone else is experiencing this too to assist.

For some reason I can't log into Apples online developer site,


FF says

To protect your security, idmsa.apple.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

which takes you to https://idmsa.apple.com/appleauth/auth/signin?widgetKey=92f19b477c5c9be6ab17f3ec2b1b2b7db4d00a9a8c973e3d6c90dac08b91de71&language=GB-EN&iframeId=daw-73c470e4-b981-4226-ba0b-64a0627e5217&appId=632

All I get is a blank page.


If I do this on the Chrome browser it works

Not sure if this was already reported, since search on this site isn't great and I have to look through multiple pages.

Sometimes some elements won't want to unselect, and stay highlighted until I close inspect element.

I finally figured out why Firefox kept warning me about opening too many tabs at once: this command is the first option on the pop up menu when I click and hold a moment too long on a folder that is part of my bookmarks toolbar (some of these have dozens of bookmarks)

'Open all in tabs'

this is on my Windows 10 PC using Firefox beta.

Is this a command I can hide/delete/inactivate? I'm quite certain I've never wanted to do this and probably will never want to do it, and now on a machine where I use a mouse with right click it is disturbingly easy to click this accidentally. I want to disable the command entirely.

I did check about:config and saw nothing obviously relevant.

When clicking on a PDF link, Firefox asks what to do. I opt to view the file in the PDF viewer, and do not select to Save it.

Invariably, Firefox saves the PDF to my Downloads folder before opening it.

This wasn't the case before. This clutters my Download folder as I open a lot of PDFs.

Hi There, I'm on the firefox beta channel presently v82.0 using web browser on mac v10.15.7 and using this website "https://www.roadstercycle.com" which uses a paypal cart for shopping. Seems every time i add something to the cart it makes a "new" cart so i can never get more than one item in it. I have no problems with Safari - so its something to do with Firefox as opposed to the website (methinks.) I restarted firefox in "safe mode" and the problem still persists. I disabled "enhanced tracking protection" as well to noavail.

Like with most things its probably not a bug but a feature but I'd be curious to get your take on it.

Thanks, Stephen

It used to be that downloading something like a pdf and then clicking on it through the downloads dropdown would immediately open the pdf in the default system pdf viewer. Now I get a pop-up telling me the Portal "Open with" is ready which then presents me with a set of options for where to open the file. I have looked around for anyone else with this problem but haven't found anyone.

Additional info: If I use the show enclosing folder feature it actually shows me a temp folder (image attached)

I'm unable to login to Outlook through Firefox on my desktop - Chrome works fine, and I'm not having issues when logging in to Outlook on my laptop using Firefox. After entering my username and password, I see a white page with "Working..." flickering on the tab, then a "X-Redir-Error" pops up. I have tried updating and restarting Firefox, clearing cookies, and using a private window - I was walked through troubleshooting steps by IT at my school as well, but it seems very clear that the issue is with the Firefox browser, and not my Outlook account. Any other suggestions to fix? Thank you!

Hi there, I reset my computer to the factory settings and I thought that my google account will hold all my saved bookmarks, that I need only to sign in and find them again in the bookmark manager. I can't find them anymore and there is no backup file as the comp was restored. Is it possible to get them back somehow? Some of them were quite important. Thank you very much.

"Microsoft to-do" isn't loading correctly on Firefox, it's stuck on a spinning wheel, however it works on Firefox private.

I've cleared cache and cookies but this hasn't helped. Enhanced Tracking is off for this page, there are no extensions on my browser.

All other Microsoft apps work correctly, it's just this one.

What else can I try to fix this?

I opened Google Calendar as a web app in Firefox by opening it in my Firefox Developer Edition browser and clicking the "page options" button (three dots side by side in the address bar).

In Google Calendar, I clicked on an event in my schedule that had a link attached. When I clicked the link, nothing happened and I wasn't redirected.

The specific link isn't the problem- all of my Google Calendar event links open when I click on them in the regular Firefox browser, and they also work when I click on them in the Microsoft Edge web app mode. As far as I can tell, only my Google Calendar event links have this issue, and only in Firefox Web App mode.

I tried restarting my browser with add-ons disabled and the problem still occurred. Appreciate any help.

Formerly there used to be a Firefox icon in the top left of the Firefox window (left of the menu bar; I'm not sure if it was actually part of the menu bar or not). This icon no longer appears. I found it useful because I use several browsers, and it's handy sometimes to be sure which one I'm in! Also to tell the difference between regular Firefox and DeveloperEdition (Red and Blue icons respectively). Is there any way I can get this icon to display in current versions of Firefox? Please note I'm NOT asking how to display the menu bar. I can do that.
