Firefox is wreaking havoc with my 2018 MacBook Air. It seems to have been invaded by gremlins that are eating RAM and slowing down the works, sometimes causing my laptop to shut down.

I want to delete Firefox and reinstall, but first I want to save all of my cookies and other settings. (I've already downloaded my bookmarks.)

How do I save my cookies and other settings?

thanks very much. Sandy

OK, I'm not a techie, so forgive my lack of accurate vernacular here, but I was a happy-go-lucky Mozilla supporter and user on all my Apple devices up until recently. I have no idea if there's a causal relationship here, but the serendipity seems to be something worth mentioning.

I signed up for the Mozilla VPN offering in October of 2022. I did not work well enough, and again, I'm a novice at such things, but I stopped using it within a week. Around the end of December, the Firefox browser has had serious problems where it would constantly crash on just about every page, sometimes multiple times. After a few days of that, I trashed the version I had and downloaded and installed the newest version just last weekend (01 JAN 2023). That lasted a few days, but now, all of a sudden, it will not open at all. I click the icon, it bobs twice, then nothing happens. The right-click "open" feature did likewise. I trashed that too and I am unwillingly to try again until I hear some feedback on this from subject-matter experts, if possible.

With my phone and iPad things are working just fine, so it must be my 5-year-old iMac that has been updated to version 12.6.2 just yesterday. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I was using Ghostery and every other security feature I could find with Firefox, but in this age of Surveillance Capitalism, who knows what works anymore.

Thanks in advance, and wishing you all well in every way, sincerely.

I'd love to have Firefox release version and Firefox beta installed side-by-side on my Mac. Is it possible? If not, how do I make it so without encountering weird problems? If any from Firefox's dev team are reading this, please just make this possible. Chrome and Edge do it. Firefox should, too, IMO. Thank you.

Updates--Mozilla says I'm up to date but my bank says I'm not

My bank says I need to update my MacBook Air browser to version 107, but the computer says I have version 102.5.0esr (last updated in November of 2022) and says it is up to date. I've checked the automatic updates box in my settings.

So do I manually update to version 107? Is 107 available for MacBook air? (I only ask because I have a 12-year old iMac that IS running version 107)

Thanks in advance for your help. I want to make sure I haven't missed something I was supposed to do.

Hi all, I have an Adobe account and regularly use Adobe e-sign to send out contracts. I have recently updated Firefox and since then, when I try and send out PDFs for e-sign via Adobe Acrobat Reader, it doesn't get past the upload of the document stage. When I do it on the web browser, I can log in to my account fine, but as soon as I try and view the PDF I want to send for signature, it tells me that:

'The cookie functionality is disabled on your browser

Adobe Acrobat Sign has detected that the cookie functionality is disabled on your browser. To use Adobe Acrobat Sign, please enable cookies on your browser.

When cookies are enabled, click the 'Continue' button below to proceed to Adobe Acrobat Sign. Instructions for enabling cookies Safari for iOS Safari for Mac Chrome for phone or tablet Chrome for desktop OS Firefox

   Click on the Firefox menu.
   Select Preferences.
   Select the Privacy & Security panel.
   Select Standard to enable cookies.
   Set Accept third-party cookies to Always to enable third-party cookies.'

I have followed all the above but it doesn't make any difference. I have also turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection for that site and it worked once, but then stopped working again.

I'm on a MacBook Pro.

Thanks so much for any help!

I frequently try to save pages as PDFs. When I print the page directly to a printer, no problem. When I save the PDF, it's usually munged and not a valid PDF file (very small or 0 bytes). Example URL: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/01/science/bacteria-microbes-electricity.html

Makes an empty PDF while when I do Print and then Save as PDF. I'm on Apple OS 10.13, using Firefox 67.0.4. This problem has been with us for a while (> 1 year I believe) and happens on all my machines.

See subject above. Their instruction doesn't apply to my mac. I like weather.com, but not enough to pay for it and I can't get past their screen with their instructions while on Firefox. I don't have the symbol they want me to click. It just happened today.

I received an email suggesting that I update my Firefox or I would lose syncing function. I have two computers. A fairly new iMac Ventura 13.6.8 running Firefox 123.0 64 bit which it says is up to date. But I also have an older iMac OSX 10.11.6 El Capiten running Firefox 78.15.0 ESR. I can't update the OS or Firefox on the old computer. So if I do nothing - will I still be able to sync on the newer Mac. I'm not too worried about the old one - I don't use it much for browsing - more for documents. Thank you. David Rimell

I am in the process of moving all of our passwords into 1Password. However, I discovered that my wife has her Firefox set to auto login, but can't remember her user name and password. So, although she can use it, she can't change update the password. The fact that on setup, auto login is the default makes this doubly frustrating. So, is there any way to get to the password?

Hello,

I just upgraded to Firefox 98.0.1. And there doesn't seem to be an option to add Pocket suggestions to the homepage, as there used to be.

You can add Pocket articles that you've saved, but not suggestions from Pocket.

It used to be under settings - home - recommended by Pocket.

Has this been removed from the options?

Thanks, Taylor

I have the latest versions of firefox installed on both my iMac and my MacBook Air. Both computers running the same IOS. Both Firefox versions have exactly the same preference settings. The iMac gets an occasional 502 Bad Gateway notification and will not go to that website. The MacBook Air does not get these issues. Both computers are running the same anti-virus software.

This message started happening 3-4 weeks ago and is baffling as you cannot get to that webpage on the iMac but at the same time I get to it fine on the MacBook Air.

What is causing this issue??

Firefox not asking where to download files

I have always had my browser set to ask me where to save anything I'm downloading, as you can see by the attached screenshot. However, every single file I have downloaded for the past 2-3 days has first gone into my Downloads folder instead, forcing me to re-download the file in order to get it into the correct folder. If this was for personal usage, I wouldn't care, but having to continually download business files is getting old very very quickly. Firefox has been my default browser for the better part of two decades. I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Safari just because Firefox won't let a power user customize their usage experience.
