Big Sur/M1 Mac mini - browser becomes unresponsive, display incorrectly scaled

I'm using Firefox 86.0 on an Apple Silicon Mac mini (16 GB/2TB) with macOS 11.2. Several times a day when I return to the browser, it will have become completely unresponsive to clicks and or typing. In this state, I can't click on web pages, or controls in the tab bar. However, the app is not beach-balling. I can quit by right clicking on the dock icon and choosing quit from the menu (I don't have to force quit). Relaunching fixes things. Also, if I have, for example, clicked on the "new tab" button in the tab bar, once I've quit and launched again, the new tab will be in the window, indicating that the command was processed, but the result was not visible. Sometimes, but not always, when in this state the page display looks like it has been scaled to about 50%. (As if I'd hit "Zoom out" five times). One clue that may relate to this is, I'm running in scaled mode on the monitor (The monitor is capable of 3840x2160, but I'm scaling things in the Display control panel to 2560x1440.) Apps are running in Retina mode. I have tried running Firefox in Safe mode, but that didn't help. I have a lot of tabs that I don't want to lose, so running in a fresh user profile is kind of difficult, unless there's a simple way to transfer open tabs between profiles.

I'm trying to install and use a digital security certificate on my MacBook Air (2020). The OS is Big Sur 11.2.2

Currently, the certificate shows as installed, but I can't download a backup to install it on Thunderbird to use for digitally signing emails. The tutorial article from the digital certificate company seems to be for an older version of Firefox, or perhaps the Mac version is different enough that the steps don't line up. Either way, one of the steps is to "Enable FIPS" and I have not been able to do that. I can find the option to enable FIPS, but it is greyed out and I haven't been able to find any information on how to fix that.

Preferences/Privacy & Security / Security / Certificates / Security Devices

Clicking on the certificate itself in the Device Manager list shows the status as logged in and the options that are available on the right side are Log out, Change password, and Load, but Enable FIPS is grey.

I use Firefox as my default browser, and I am an enrolled online student. I have an external logitech camera that works fine on Chrome and Safari (I'm on Mac) but Firefox requires a complete close and reopen after a few hours. It stops accessing the video camera accurately, although the indicator light on the camera still comes on.

This happens regardless of the platform (i.e. Google Meet, Zoom, chat sites).

Does anyone know what's going on? Or what settings can be tweaked? A computer running windows ten is having the same issue.

Some websites like to hijack your keyboard shortcuts. (For example in forums, ⌘-C, ⌘-V, ⌘-K, ⌘-L)

In Firefox, you can hold ⌘+Shift while clicking a link to open it in a new background tab. I recently encountered a website (Duckduckgo) which hijacks this as well.

Is there a way to block website from redirecting your keyboard shortcuts. It's really intrusive and I hate it.

Thanks.

Is it possible to view a list of all the things that were printed within the Firefox browser? I'm not interested in browsing history-- I'm specifically after an entire list of things that were printed using a printer within Firefox. I tried looking for threads asking the same question, but it seems like everything is focused around the normal browsing history. The system is MacOS Big Sur Version 11.2.1.

Hi Guys,

I have a problem when I'm waking up PC from sleep mode. Please help me if you have ideas or solutions.

In my case, Firefox doesn't accept any action (scroll, click). The only solution is terminate Firefox by cmd+Q shortcut, and after restart, it works properly.

I can see same problem with my Mac Mini M1 and Macbook Air M1, but it didn't happen on Intel Macbook Pro.

Here's my environment,

OS:Mac OS Big Sur 11.2.2 Firefox:86.0 Display:Dell Q3219U Connection:USB-C to USB-C or USB-C to Displayport

Thanks in advance,

Hi, I just switched from Chrome to Firefox. Everything is fine except this feature.

On Mac, you can set a text replacement in System Preferences > Keyboard > Text and use it in any input in any programs. It works with Chrome and other programs that have an input field. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in Firefox :/ Is it possible to implement this? I would love to see this feature in Firefox.

I saw there are some Add-on for this, but I don't want to use them as there is already a feature in Mac.

I added an example screenshot. When I type "mymail", it automatically suggest what I set up before.

Thanks, best wishes.

Hello, I have wanted to move from Chrome to Firefox for some time and I finally got to try it out today. Something that has bothered me since the beginning is that right clicking when the cursor hovers over text behaves differently than I'm used to.

This is the behavior I want:

  1. User action: With the cursor over text.
  2. User action: Right click / double click if in Mac
  3. Browser action: The word that the cursor is hovering should be automatically selected and the appropriate actions (copy, select all, search…, etc.) should appear in the contextual menu.

Instead of those options in the contextual menu, the normal page options are appearing (Save Page As, View Page Source…).

Where do I change this behaviour?

Additionally, how can I make the contextual menu include the «Look Up "foo"» option as it does in Chrome (Mac)?

PS: check the names of the images; basically: Chrome; Firefox-what-I-get; Firefox-what-I-want
