I have fixed the problem by right-clicking the video title and opening a new tab for each video, but I was wondering if there is a more convienient solution

When firefox is in full screen mode, as soon as I take my mouse cursor to switch tabs the Mac Os action bar (bar with close and minimize icons on it ) covers the tabs and make it hard to switch tabs, same happens while reaching for address bar which extremely annoying and frustrating.

I see other applications handles it really well for this situation so its not the macos issue. I reported this on twitter too but no satisfying response. I like firefox and don't want to switch back to other browser so please fix this. This issue is extremely frustrating and impacts the core functionality of the firefox or browser in general.


I have attached images from Chrome and source tree, both are third party application. Best handling of this action is done by safari, which smoothly animate and make the space for close and minimize buttons along with the tabs but that's a first party app and not sure if the same can be achieved by third party apps.

I am running Big Sur but this was happening even in Catalina.

Thank you!

Hello. Is there a possibility to swap the destinations of mouse shortcuts? I am asking this because of i want all links open with new tabs. I have read the article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1205311, the extension that the expert recommends does not work as expected, but middle click works perfect everywhere. I am sorry if I doubled the known question, but i failed to find anything clear. Thank you.

While trying to fix Firefox's massive memory leaks, I went to Help/Troubleshooting/Add-Ons and found these, which are NOT in the usual Manage Add-ons page:

Amazon.com extension Bing extension

ClearURLs extension <-- Oops! I actually installed this, to try to trim URLs of all the tracking crap when I paste one into a Facebook comment.

DuckDuckGo extension eBay extension Wikipedia (en) extension

All of the other extensions listed are ones I installed and wish to keep. EVERY time I install Firefox, I go to the One-Click Search Engines list and remove all but Google.

I don't know how these wormed their way in, but they don't seem to add any functionality for me.

When I go to one site, Firefox is now asking me microphone permission on every page on that site during the same session.

This did not happen until two days ago. It used to be when I granted permission for my microphone to be used on that site, it applied to every page on it throughout the session, as long as I did not close out, sign out or close the window. Now, every time I go to speak, when on a new page, it asks for permission. Since this is a language learning site, this has become a real pain.

There is no "remember this setting" dialog either when I first give permission to use the microphone. It is asking for permission for the general site, so it's not asking for each page. When I check the permissions box after moving to the next page, no permissions are granted.

Nothing that I can tell has changed. It's not doing this with other browsers, which is concerning.

I checked my settings site and nothing has changed. I also did Firefox refresh and that did not help. Signed off and signed in again, on both the laptop and website -- all did not change this.

Hi:

I am using the Safari browser on my Mac. Suddenly when I wanted to login into the Firefox account I got the 500 Error message that I pasted in the Subject. I am a new user of Firefox, just switched from Safari and I am not computer savvy...

I cannot login, I cannot create another account...

I hope I do not have to go back to Safari.... I have no idea what might cause this problem and what to do. I hope that somebody has the answer. Thanks in advance.

I do not know what json files are. I have only seen them in the profile. However, whatever their purpose, firefox is no longer processing json files. Instead, it wants to download json.txt when I make some selections.

Example: on Youtube when signed into my account, I select "notification" and instead of the menu opening, the download box appears wanting to download json.txt. This has happened in numerous places - not only youtube, so it looks like a Firefox problem.

Firefox used to process json files and now wants to download them. I tried to configure json in options, and when I select "other" Firefox shows up as a choice it it not possible to select it. I select it, but it does not change the ONLY options for json files which are "always ask" or "save".

This is clearly not something I can fix, not something I caused. I need the features that are not functional, and apparently they have become dysfunctional because they apparently access json files but no longer process them as intended.

Would appreciate knowing what the problem is, if there is an explanation. Is there a fix? Do I need to configure something? Thanks. Mary

I deleted every Firefox and Mozilla file and folder I could find on my Mac. This was a scorched-Earth deletion (or so I thought). The Firefox application, my profile folder, any user Library files I could find, even caches - I deleted everything. The hope was I could reinstall a pristine version of Firefox (Firefox has been going zombie on me since May). I installed the latest download, signed into my Firefox account - and suddenly, it knew all my previous-used passwords and bookmarks. I thought these were stored in your Profiles folder (and not in the cloud somewhere) -- which I had deleted? How did Firefox find them if they were no longer on my Mac?

I had to get a new hard drive on my laptop, so I'm sure you can imagine how stressed I already am.

Plus I'm in Spain, and the computer guy who fitted the new hard drive has set my computer language to Spanish, which so far I'm unable to change!

Anyway... I'm hoping someone can help me reinstall my firefox settings and tabs etc.

I did this once before and recalled it being very easy, however I've just followed the instructions and I'm not getting anywhere.

I've got a windows tablet, where the original firefox settings were copied to years ago. It's all up to date.

Since my hard drive on my laptop was trashed, and I have a new one fitted, I'm hoping I can now copy all of the firefox settings from my tablet, onto the reborn laptop.

I've typed in %appdata%\Mozilla\firefox\profiles\ and 2 files are listed.

pjdchlcd.default-release

And

xiwodwfv.default-1561288394972

The instructions tell me to right click, and copy,however on my tablet I have no mouse, so can't right click. (I'm not great using the tablet becauseit has no mouse, and as such, have barely used it)

So here I'm already stuck!

I had the option to copy full path, but could not paste anything to the usb when I did that.

Any help at this time would be much appreciated!

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Hello All. Ok. I got one for you. I just hooked up new (stand alone) monitor to my laptop.

It's an Acer SB220Q. Connected fine. But everything is very pixelated and flickers, but only on Firefox and only on the monitor. No issues on my laptop. Google Chrome and Explorer Edge both work fine on the Monitor.

As a mini-geek - started out as computer science major - I've checked all the drivers, graphics, and even uninstalled and reinstalled driver. Nothing changed.

What gives?

Happy Holidays. JMcB
