Hardware: iMac 5K, 27-inch, 2017 macOS: Ventura 13.2 Firefox: 109.0.dmg File Type: Disk Image

For an unknown reason my Firefox browser locked up in the middle of a session. A full system re-start failed to fix the problem – all other software Apple Safari, Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop and Microsoft Office etc. continue to work as normal. Both Bitdefender and Malwarebytes full system scans have failed to identify any security issues.

To remove any possibility there was a macOS issue I successfully recovered the operating system from the mac in Recovery mode.

As the Firefox app would still not respond to the normal app opening process I removed the failed app from the mac “Applications” folder using the AppCleaner app and downloaded a new Firefox app file from the Mozilla Firefox site. I then dragged the downloaded file to the mac “Applications” folder and while holding the control key Ejected “Firefox” from the menu - the “Firefox” named disk icon on the mac screen and showing in the Finder “Locations” disappeared. Following this I successfully dragged Firefox from the “Applications” folder to the dock.

When the Firefox icon in the dock or in the Applications folder are selected the error message appears: The application “Firefox.app” can’t be opened. Repeated deletion of the Firefox app from the mac, restarting the mac, re-downloading the Mozilla Firefox app etc. etc. has resulted in the same failure. In the interim I am using Safari for the web but want to resume using Firefox asap due to Safari’s limitations.

Am I missing something in the Firefox installation procedure or there is an unrecognised security bug in the system? This is the first time I have had any issue arise with a Firefox installation process on either Windows or Apple systems.

Grateful for any advice.

I received 3 mails tonight that said:

Search results for your [edited from public] @frii.com account have detected that your email may have been exposed. We recommend you act now to resolve this breach.

I am checking to see if these 3 emails are legitimately from Firefox and if this has occurred, how do I act to resolve this breach??

And how do I check the status without clicking on the link in the 3 emails - or is it safe to click on the links to find out more information about the possible data breaches??

Thank you [email removed from public]

I realize that the page I am using findbar to search from reloads and scrolls to the top using some Javascript so that when I return to the searched page from a popup, the last search item is no longer focused when I come back so (or press F3 or Ctrl G) e.g. if I found the 29th hit, then I have to click down 30 times to get to the next search hit.

I tried using add-in Luminous to disable the reload/scroll to top of the page that I am searching but failed. It is a complicated add-in.

Is there any way to jump say 10 hits down at once?

This is a very recent issue for me. A couple of days ago "tel:" links stopped functioning. I click on a callable link and nothing happens. I checked default applications, and tel: isn't even listed there. The first time it happened there was a dialogue box asking me what application to use, but after that nothing opened at all. I build and monitor websites, so I'm constantly checking these links for functionality.

I upgraded to 108.01 three days ago. It crashed 3 times in the next two days, accompanied by that popup you get informing you of the crash.

For years I've been using the extraction method of the executable to create a Firefox portable application. Upgrading only involves the install folder. The profile remains untouched, unaltered.

I had an incident of profile corruption a couple months ago, with basically Firefox launching with most features not working, i.e. toolbar buttons, toolbar menus, etc. Yesterday, for a short time, aside from two crashes, I had a similar experience with the buttons, but not quite the same. My default built in Firefox buttons worked, but my extension buttons didn't. I also noticed on a page that I regularly visit, Ublock origin wasn't doing it's regular job of blocking, and the Ublock button was non-responsive.

I'm also in the process of using the Brave Browser for the first time. The reason I'm posting this here about this subject, including a Brave experience, is that at the same time I was experiencing the Firefox erratic behavior, Brave was crashing as well; freezing; tabs not loading.

Considering the Brave tabs not loading, and the temporary Firefox Ublock origin failure, etc., I'm wondering if there might be something in common here? Maybe an internet connectivity issue at the time?

Lately Firefox has become unbearably slow. I checked my Verizon connection. Their test showed I have good network response. I get these long TLS handshake messages. I tried refreshing Firefox. I lost my adblock then reinstalled it. It seems to be working but I no longer see the icon showing how many ads are blocked. I thought I might try customizing it but when I go into Settings-Add-ons I can't even find it. By the way I can't find what release I'm on either but it should be the latest.

Basically.

I see a lot of options on how to disable Javascript context menus on sites, for purpose.

I want the opposite - certain sites, most notably Google Workspace and Nextcloud, have a very useful Javascript context menu for things like tweaking format or renaming files.

But when I right-click in Firefox, the browser's own context menu pops up and overlaps with the site's, making it nearly unusable. (Pressing escape to dismiss the menu has a 50% chance of also dismissing the site's)

Any way to disable the context menu? Bonus points if it can be done on a per-site basis.

Not sure when the problems (slow and failure to launch) started. Had been using Firefox for years until a coupler of months ago. Tried to use support for help but nothing worked. Started using Chrome more often. Now I use it exclusively. Somehow, I suspect the combination of my use of Yahoo's NordVPN and AOL's Malwarebytes, somehow interfered with Firefox.
