When I browse in full screen mode and try to save something (a web page or a picture... it doesn't matter) the dialog box does not show up on the screen - only two big buttons on my touch bar which allow me to "cancel" or "save".

Is there a way to fix that?

This problem appeared a while ago since the last udates of Catalina I guess and is still there on macos Big sur.

I run Firefox standard (84.0.2) on my windows laptop (v10) and try to synchronize with my Mac desktop - OS X Version 10.11.6 with Firefox esr version 78.6.1. It worked in the past and I am not sure when the synch stopped. I have tried to look at the log in about:sync-log but am at loss to understand what all the code means. It does contain a lot of DEBUG ... Thanks for any suggestions!

Hello,

A few weeks ago a bought a sound card for my home studio. I was quite happy until I realized that all the soundcloud 's tracks lost their stereo. Here's the setups I tried:

Soundcloud -> Firefox -> computer -> firewire cable -> sound card -> headset = mono Soundcloud -> Safari or Chrome -> computer -> firewire cable -> sound card -> headset = stereo Soundcloud -> Firefox -> computer -> jack 3.5mm cable -> headset = stereo Soundcloud -> Safari or Chrome -> computer -> jack 3.5mm cable -> headset = stereo

Do you have any idea of what I might not doing well? In 2018, a guy seemed to have the same issue: https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=fr&tl=en&u=https://fr.audiofanzine.com/techniques-du-son/forums/t.661973,soundcloud-en-mono.html

Hi,

I want to save a website that featured our dog on a page. The website is a help-site for veterinary expense that will probably close the page featuring our animal, as our pet didn't make it. If it matters, the website is Waggle.com.

I used File > Save Page As to open the dialog box with the option to save to the desktop. I note it did so with the extension .html. At the bottom of the dialog box was Format, I choose the default save as Website complete. I tried to open it and saw a instant of the webpage picture. On the bottom left-hand corner several pieces of dialog were running in rapid succession, one of them contained the words "Hand shake", but most were probably computerize gibberish, at least to me. The bottom left hand corner went blank and the entire tab was left blank--empty, the brief picture disappeared. Google didn't offer any help with this.

Can I save this page to view as a memory, or is this essentially gone to a novice like me?

Using Firefox 84.0.2, Mac OS 11.1 Big Sur. When using Amazon Prime Video to access CBS All Access, I open Firefox, go to the proper Amazon Video address, sign in to my account, click the program to be watched, and click the full screen icon *in the video*, but the tool bar does not disappear.

Prior to updating to OS 11.1, this worked perfectly: it would go to full screen.

Now, I need to upon opening the browser, use the Firefox prefs, and click the full screen icon first. Then, when the program screen opens and content is played, I can click the full screen icon *in the video screen* and it makes the toolbar disappear.

Ok, I know this is a first world problem, but I liked the one click approach better than the two click.

Is there a way to get back to the one click solution? It seemed Firefox was remembering what to do before (?) before the update.

In Firefox 84.0.2 I tried to access an old YouTube account from a gmail email. it signed me out and I have to change the password to get back in to gmail. It gave me message about "a suspicious app, etc." but I KNOW I don't have any suspicious anything on my new Macbook Pro. I finally realized that on Chrome I can stay signed in, but in Firefox, every time I try to sign in with the changed password, it goes through the whole thing again. I want to use Firefox, but right now I want to be able to access my email! I also don't want to have to stay signed in. Also, I was on a new device, AND in another country -- Apple could not help me (just said to change password), and I didn't have Chrome on my new Mac at that point, though probably should have tried it before all the changing....

Anyway, I looked up everything I could. The checkbox that the directions at one point said to uncheck isn't in my screen in Firefox 84.0.2. Thanks.

Hi all, I am experiencing a very annoying behaviour on firefox: from one day to another I cannot anymore scroll the tab strip with my trackpad, and this is driving me crazy.

Tried to restart firefox in safe mode => the problem still persists Tried to quit from better touch tool with addons disabled => problem still persists Factory reset of firefox with better touch tool disabled => problem still persists

Almost everything disabled in system settings in the trackpad gestures sections (screenshot attached)

You can find here a screen recording of the problem: in this video I open many new tabs and try to horizontally scroll them, you can't see the movement I do on the trackpad, but it is performed like when you scroll down a webpage: I expect (and it was like this since few time ago) the tab strip to scroll horizontally like a web page scrolls when you scroll down with trackpad, really no idea why it stopped working

Firefox is my absolute favurite browser, but this issue is really diving me crazy

Tabs and toolbars never autohide in fullscreen on Apple Mac

OS: Catalina Model: iMac (27-inch, Late 2013) (tested on Macbook pro 2018 and 2011 too) Firefox: 84.0.2

Expected functionality: First expand the window to full screen using the green window control. The expectation is that the tab and tool bars will eventually hide, however firefox implements this - by sliding up when scrolling or just sliding up and autohiding after a short time. The tab bar should then reappear when the mouse move to the top of the screen.

Functionality Observed: Tab and tool bars never autohide. They are always there. The only way to that they hide is when a video (YouTube, Netflix) fullscreen controls are selected. Otherwise they are there on every page and that is not the expected behavior. Id like every page to autohide the top bars (similar to what all tablet/mobile device browsers do).

Settings verified: browser.fullscreen.authide= true (see image). Hide toolbars is checked (see image).

Issue I have found posted on this do not provide a concise reason as to why this behavior exists when all settings are properly set.

hi, I'm having problems with Firefox on my Mac - every time Firefox is shut down, I have to relog in and authenticate myself and all my settings have gone so I have to redo them again. I have tools that I use for work that use certain settings else they don't work so I have to redo them every time I reopen the browser or shut my machine down. anyone know why this might be the case?

I don't know if it's linked but when I started using this current machine last year and loaded everything on, Firefox is sitting under 'locations' rather than applications and I don't seem to able to install it anywhere else - see image attached.

Many thanks.

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?
