There are a million support articles on this and other sites that show all the steps to importing your passwords from Chrome to Firefox, and they usually include a screenshot that is identical to the one I've included, except for they also have a box you can check to import passwords. I successfully imported my cookies, browsing history, and bookmarks, but there was no passwords box for me to check and I haven't been able to import my passwords. Why is it that option not showing up for me?

Hey everybody. A few weeks ago, my audio stopped working on Google Meet out of the blue. I can still hear everyone, but they can't hear me. Meet works fine in a different browser so it's not my computer/mic. I've cleared my cookies/cache and disabled adblock, which is about where my know how ends. Any help would be much appreciated; I use Meet a lot for a side job and I haven't been able to search my way into a solution. I'm on Mac Catalina with FF 71.

Apparently, Firefox 71 for Mac no longer allows tabs be dragged within a browser window to reposition them. Is there a way to fix this? Am I missing a setting?

Formerly, one could reorder tabs in a Firefox browser window by clicking and dragging. One could also click and hold a tab and move it to create a new window or take a tab from one window, click and drag it to another window. I am no longer able to do this on my Mac laptop, after updating to Firefox 71. I can't seem to find a special setting in Firefox 71. Is there one or a way to allow tab movement? Or do I need to revert to the previous version of Firefox?

I can easily find a bookmark by searching in the Library "All bookmarks" window. However, I cannot figure out how to see folder that contains that bookmark. In Safari there an optional column for folder and you can then right-click and get an option to open the folder.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox?

Some of the time, but not all the time, Firefox will refresh the page I'm on when I press the number 5 on my Macbook Pro (tested on 2019 and 2015). I'm using the latest version of Firefox and it's been like this for a while. This gets really annoying when I need to type the number 5 at the end of a long form and it just refreshes the page.

I know that F5 reloads the page but there is no chance of me pressing F5 since I would need to hold the Fn key and press the touchbar to do this. I've also logged my keys to make sure that F5 wasn't being registered somehow.

Hello,

I urgently ;-) need a shortcut to switch between open browser windows. It seems to be one of the basic ones, but is nowhere to be found.

Solutions using Tilde do not work for me becuse it's not available on my Apple keyboard.

Why not use Command +< or Command + > respectively, like many other apps do?

And why not at least let me configure that in a simple fashion myself???

Thanks for any solution!

It's so frustrating that the keyboard shortcut for closing tabs is right beside the one to quit Firefox. I've lost countless hours because of this, and it's so easy to accidentally do. Is there a way to keep this from happening? A simple "Are you sure" confirmation dialog would be great, or I really like the Chrome "hold command-Q" to exit feature. This seemingly simple function is proving extremely difficult to accomplish.

Yes, I'm aware of session restore, but (1) It does not preserve my window arrangement. I use multiple desktops for various tasks, and they each have related browser windows. (2) I need to see webpages exactly as they were when I opened them. Sessions expire, dynamic pages are refreshed, content is removed etc. That is all lost.

I do not want to disable session restore completely. It can still be useful. But, I do not want to trigger session restore automatically every time. Manual activation is ideal.

regarding: "browser.tabs.warnOnClose" I do not want a warning for closing multiple tabs. I often have many windows open and that warning gets annoying. It also doesn't prevent me from accidentally quitting when I only have one tab open.

I tried setting browser.warnOnQuit to true, but it's ignored.

I simply want a confirmation when I use the keyboard shortcut to QUIT. That's it. No side effects. Can Firefox do this?

Since downloading 76.0.1 on my mac laptop Firefox freezes every few minutes and somtimes jumbles up web pages showing black boxes flickering and jumping around. It is quiet alarming. I've gone through the recommended fixes three times now but the problems persist. I've also reinstalled Adobe Flash Player and Duckduckgo as well as Firefox. I thought the problem could be flash because the freezing occurs most often when I am playing a word game. I tried taking a screen shot but the mouse is frozen while firefox is hung up. The jumbled pages can be anything but it seems that it's mostly pages with images. The problem occurs in safe mode, too. I am not having similar issue with Safari.

I have several folders set up in the Bookmarks Toolbar folder, so they display nicely on the toolbar. However lately they stopped working - if I click it once after starting Firefox, it'll open. But if I try to click a second time, it no longer opens, and just remains in a "highlighted" state. Any reason why it's happening? In the screenshot you can see what it looks like after the "Current" folder is clicked.

The folders are accessible fine if I go to Bookmarks menu item and navigate from there.
