Hello,

I've started using the Firefox Containers extensions, and I really like it. Is there a way to segregate add-ons in containers like tabs? Or maybe I'm missing some other way to do it. I'd like to use Honey sometimes for coupons and such, but I don't want to give it access to all the websites I visit, just a couple of shopping sites, like Amazon, so I can see if there are any coupons and do price tracking.

Thanks!

I display Firefox on a large external monitor, but when I maximize a web video Firefox shifts to my MacBook Pro laptop screen. Firefox fills the screen, but only a portion of the video can be seen. Also, when I press ESC to exit the maximized video, Firefox shifts back to the external monitor but the window is quite small. This is a rather new situation. What I want is for web videos that are maximized to display on my external monitor and, upon exiting maximize mode, for Firefox to revert to the window size that existed before the web video was maximized.

Note that when I maximize the Firefox window (not the video maximize control) it performs properly. Also, I don't have any of these issues when using Safari.

Will appreciate any help you can offer.

Thanks.

Hallo Zusammen

Seit geraumer Zeit ist Firefox leider sehr von der Suche auf google.com überzogen.. Um relevantere Suchergebnisse zu erhalten und mal schnell auf eine Suche nur innerhalb der Schweiz zu wechseln sollen unsere Rechner immer über google.ch suchen!

Bis vor kurzem war noch ein Add-On namens "Google ch" erhältlich, was nun nicht mehr auffindbar ist. Ein eigener Suchstring konnte ich bis jetzt auch nirgens eingeben und beim drücken des "Suchmaschine hinzufügen" Buttons, kam nur die Suchseite der Add-On's, was natürlich nicht weiterhilft..

Das ändern der Suchregion in den Einstellungen der Website ist keine Option!

Gerne kann google.com auch gleich komplett ersetzt werden. Es kommt nämlich bei der Eingabe von google im Suchfeld auch immer gleich google.com als Vorschlag obwohl diese Seite nie aufgerufen wird.. Sehr sehr mühsam das Ganze!

Besten Dank für eure Informationen wie dies behoben werden kann.

MacBook Pro 2019 MacOS 10.15x Firefox 76.0.1 64-bit I've successfully reset various hotkeys for Firefox on Mac to use ctrl (^) instead of command. To do this I used System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts where there's a section for Firefox.app. There, I've added these resets: Cut ^X Copy ^C Paste ^V Select All ^A Find in This Page... ^F All of these work, except ^V for Paste. The key combo even shows in the Firefox menu bar Edit pull-down menu. But when I have a string of text in the clipboard and use ^V nothing happens (oh, I do see a little flash of the Edit option on the Firefox toolbar any time I hit ^V, but the clipboard content isn't pasted. I still have to use command-V, which is so annoying for this long-time Windows user who has control key shortcuts burned into his muscle memory. Anyone have any idea why ^V reset isn't working?

Hi,

So far I was using Brave on all my devices, but recently I tried Firefox and I really like Firefox sync which encrypts e2e my bookmarks and visited websites between all my devices,

There's one thing on Firefox desktop which doesn't work the same way as in Brave, on MacOS in Brave when I was zooming a page a clickable link on a page is in a different position than a link itself,

I especially can see it when zoomed the actual clickable area of a link is above a text, then menu appears below the point I clicked it

Comparing to Brave when zooming both areas are not synced when zooming

So far I tried with support from here to set apz.allow_zooming to true, it helped with smoother zooming, but that issue described above came up

thanks

hi

using Firefox 76.0.1 Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) iTunes 12.9.5.5

whenever i set the sound to play to my Denon receiver via Airplay, iTunes will randomly open up (usually when a new audio stream is opened). then, it seems to force play whatever was last queued.

if my music is on an external disk, iTunes will repeatedly bug that it cannot find the queued track. (end up having to force quit iTunes but issue returns.)

when i try to replicate the issue in Safari 13.1, iTunes never opens or annoys.

After switching Catalina to dark mode several parts of FF's UI seem to be broken. It seems like the browser has problems applying the correct colors to the elements, which most of the time results in poor contrast between background and text. I've noticed these problems on window titles, dialogs, tooltips and lists. Regarding the latter, the problem seems to be corrected as soon as the element is on focus, and reverts to the wrong colors when focus is lost.

Interim solution to at least improve readability is to refresh FF while on light mode, and then switch the OS back to dark mode. After this, change FF to dark mode. End result is not ideal as FF's chrome becomes dark but affected elements remain light.

At least as recently as Developer Edition 77.0b5. Neither the keyboard shortcut nor the UI "x" button closes the mode. This is developer edition 77.0b5 on MacOS 10.14.6. For a handful of beta versions it seems inconsistent (sometimes worked sometimes didn't work) but now it seems like this happens every time. I'm not sure when I first noticed the issue.

Reinstalling the Firefox application in the macOS way (move Firefox.app from the application folder into trash and move a current (non Beta Version of) Firefox into the application folder) does not work. Firefox somehow remembers that the Beta Channel is active. It will update to the recent Beta on startup/restart.

I did not try to remove all files created by Firefox, as I do not want to loose my current profile.

While there seems to be documentation about working with multiple versions of Firefox or how to work with multiple profiles: I am not interested in installing multiple versions of Firefox simultaneously or work with multiple profiles.

I simply want to replace my Firefox Beta with the current release... (There may be a problem with profiles being not compatible with an older version of Firefox. However, I feel like it should be possible to stay on the Beta (without updating) until a newer version releases in the release channel to avoid this issue.)

There does not seem to be any documentation on how to unenroll from the Firefox Beta on macOS. (I googled / used duckduckgo a lot (I searched for a solution every now and then over the time span of multiple months) and nothing relevant turned up.)

PS: Good job on Firefox for macOS; it replaced safari (which had deprecated a lot of addons at that time) as soon as the beta with improved (macOS) battery life released (the reason why I installed a beta version.)

Hello there !

This is what happens: I'm using Firefox, with several windows open. I'm on this support page, for instance (image 1), and I look up my calendar, or messages, or Zoom, etc. (image 2)

In the background of this app window, Firefox immediately displays another page, one that was open but hidden, in fact the one next to the page I was on. (image 2)

And when I return to Firefox, I'm still on that window, so I have to manually return to the page I was on before I opened the othe app.

Thank your for your help!

if I am selecting tabs rapidly, say select tab number 5, then quickly move to tab 7 and single click to show it. Suddenly FF enlarges to fill the screen as if I selected the tab and double clicked it. This does NOT occur if I do it slowly. I often do this to move two tabs closer together so I can keystroke between them for comparison (changing tabs using the keystroke does not cause the problem)

I have been very careful to ensure a single click occurs, and I can replicate it to happen every time. If I move SLOWLY, and click say after a second, it behaves as I would expect and simply selects the tab.

Since I have a 4K screen, FF is usually in the middle taking up about 1/3 of the area and is very usable. When the screen is blown out to the edges, text is hard to read as lines are so long, and I can't see other apps I have up for reference without resizing the window.

BTW, the double click does not do a mac ZOOM, enlarging the window to be 'full screen' as happens when clicking the green dot. Instead if behaves exactly as it does when double clicking on a tab, enlarging the window to go edge to edge and under the main menu to the bottom of the screen.

I tried doing a safe mode restart, and the same problem occurs when no extensions are loaded.

Is this a setting or preference somewhere, and can anyone else see this happening? I only have 1 mac to test on. Mac OSX 10.15.4, FF 76.0.1

This is what happens: (screen shots attached)

What I have tried:

Searched the forums. Others say go to preferences > privacy and security > privacy > screen recording. My settings does not have and additional "privacy" tab, nor "screen recording" anywhere (I searched).

I'm on Catalina.

This is a new development. Happening on all of my Mac OSX machines. Whenever I download a file from Firefox, the downloaded file now has write permissions set for group and other:

-rw-rw-rw-

instead of the more reasonable read-only permissions for group and other:

-rw-r--r--

This is a new development: all of my downloads started displaying these fully writable permissions about a month ago. Happening on multiple computers, so this is tied to Firefox v77.
