When I am trying to type in a web address the Firefox browser tries to "guess" what website I want to visit by auto-filling. This is sometimes useful, but most of the time it guesses wrong or takes me to a webpage when I wanted to search. Currently I am trying to sign into one of my Wordpress and Firefox will NOT let me type /wp-login.php at the end of the URL it keeps redirecting me to another page on my website no matter what I do. Is there any way to just disable this "feature" because I swear I'm about to switch to Opera as this is driving me bonkers. (I will never switch to Chrome, don't worry.)

I was using the beta update channel, but with the recent release, I downloaded and installed 85.0 instead of upgrading to the 86 beta. This seems to have worked fine, but About Firefox is still showing me as being on the beta update channel and asking me to upgrade to the 86 beta. How can I get on the release update channel so I can turn on automatic updates again?

I have it so the bookmarks toolbar only shows up on a new tab, and my new tab page is the Firefox Home page. For a few days when I opened a new tab, the Bookmarks Toolbar showed my bookmarks + folders, but now when I open a new tab, the Bookmarks Toolbar is empty. My bookmarks still exist, they just don't show up.

The back/forward buttons on my mouse are not working as intended, ONLY on the Firefox browser. The actions work correctly on every other application and browser that I use. With Firefox, when the back/forward buttons are pressed, the "up/down" scroll is triggered. This is not how I have mapped my mouse. Please look into fixing this. It is very annoying. Thank you.

Hello,

I am using Firefox 85.0 on OSX 10.14.6. Both Firefox Dev Tools and OSX are set to Dark Mode. However the menubar on the Developer Tools pop-out window (separate window view) is showing light grey. Please see attached image which shows the menu bar colour.

Is there any way I can change this to match the dark theme of my system?

This may seem petty, but I use the pop-out console a lot in my workflow and the bright coloured bar is bothering me! I have just switched over from Chrome which correctly matches the menubar to the system theme.

Thanks for your help.

Hi Folks,

I've recently started working with a Mac (Catalina) and found an oddity that only seems to apply to Firefox. I set up keyboard shortcuts for moving windows between my macbook display and an external monitor using the in-built keyboard options to add shortcuts.

These target the Window>Move to [DISPLAY NAME] menu entries at the top of the screen. For some reason Firefox windows don't have this menu entry and therefore my shortcuts don't move Firefox windows between my screens.

I've included a couple screenshots to demonstrate. It's not a huge deal but I wonder if it's an issue with my machine or just a quirk of Firefox?

I just started using Firefox recently. I can't get my search engine to stick. Every time i change it it changes back to Google. Every time I delete Google it shows back up . It's like a bad infection. How can I change my search engine and not have it revert back to default? I have performed all of the recommended procedures with no success. And I have no add-ons installed.

I work with a MacBookPro, system macOSCatalina 10.15.7 and the current Firefox browser 84.0.2.

I am currently having problems downloading documents.

Since yesterday I can no longer call up and download the online edition of a newspaper that I have subscribed to.

This is still possible without any problems using the Safari browser.

I updated the Firefox browser on January 7th, 2021 (to 84.0.2).

I haven't changed anything to the Firefox settings since January 7th, 2021.

What should I do?

Question: Is there a way to save the personalized session screen under a reference name?

I have created a screen with some 10 fixed tabs that i use each day in a fixed order. It enables me to quickly swap from 1 tab to another.

In preferences I opted for restore sessions, and it works, but sometimes (e.g. after OSX upgrade) i loose the session set-up and have to re-organize all the tabs again.

Every once in a while the Firefox browser will close down (I'm assuming for an autoupdate) when it does it clears my chosen search engine as well as the information of recently closed tabs and windows. This means that when it restarts I have to search through my history for the sites and pages that I had open before it closed down. Why is this happening? and is there a way I can stop it?

I want to load a website. It is listed in the URL with the Red Anti stripe through the Padlock Icon. I try to Google Allow Unsecure Site Firefox. I also try to rearrange my search words, over and over. All of the "solutions" suggested in Firefox support blog require changing 9 security settings in 3 different sections of the preferences for the Browser. That is not that difficult. Note, I do not see any "solutions" suggested since 2018 or earlier. Caveat. I have to go back into the settings and change them back and restart Firefox for security to move on to UnSafe mainstream sites.

Is there not an "Allow Once" button, or Site Exceptions option? If so, how may steps is it to get there? How many steps to return to save browsing? This choke occurs with low skilled, low tech Pages, not sites.

I am attempting to view http://www.fortvan.org/pages/pearson-air-museum I can find no way of allowing this site/video to load without redesigning the browser, running 40 miles, cooking a cake, and painting the neighbors barn?

Should I just got to Chrome, who I hate, or Brave and get free crypto tokens?

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) Running HTTPS Everywhere Running Privacy Badger Firefox set for standard enhanced tracking protection HTTPS-ONLY mode set for all windows

At my bank and a few other websites using HTTPS as standard operating procedure, Firefox gives me an error that the site is NOT using HTTPS and gives me the option of using only HTTP! This is unacceptable, financial transactions must be secured with HTTPS. What is the fix for this?

I'm spread thin and don't have the personal time resource to keep hunting through thousands of miscellaneous support articles that, from their titles, I haven't a clue whether they are relevant or not! (Though I tried investing an hour or so in this exercise getting nowhere.)

Sorry, I didn't save copies of the same error message on three different HTTPS sites.
