Hello,

A few weeks ago something changed in my Firefox browser where popup boxes do not show. For example, if I want to download a file, the pop-up box with the options for downloading do not show. If I want to attach or upload a file, the popup does not show. Even if I want to change a setting in my my Firefox account, I cannot if it requires a popup box.

If I restart my computer (not the browser), the problem goes away, but eventually it happens again.

It is really disruptive. Now I have to do about 60% of my work in another browser. All of my account info, bookmarks, and passwords are saved with my Firefox account, so I would prefer to be able to use Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix? I should also not--this has persisted despite updating.

Some sites offer separate links for viewing and downloading. (I'm specifically interested in PDF files, but I think this question is more general.) I'm not sure how this distinction is communicated to Firefox—I'm guessing in the MIME type? But regardless of the mechanism, Firefox does not seem to offer any obvious settings that distinguish between the two cases. Are there ways to distinguish in less obvious places, such as about:config?

As a specific example: currently on a certain site when I click "View" the PDF is displayed in Firefox, and when I click "Download" the PDF is both placed in my Downloads folder and displayed in Firefox. I would prefer that the "Download" link only cause the download, and not cause the display. How can I change this without breaking the "View" links?

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

Firefox on MacOS is not saving/using logins and passwords properly.

One: When I add a login in Firefox such as: https://www.canada.ca/en/employment-social-development/services/my-account/access.html#a4-2 (which is where I need to get my tax information)

It only saves: https://www.canada.ca (which is useless)

Two: When I add a login in Firefox such as: 192.168.0.1 (which is the address of my router)

I saves all the information but will not offer the actual password, only the login user.

Safari handles all this wonderfully but Firefox is terrible. I only use Firefox so I can use Ublock Original to get rid of the damn adverts from everywhere...

Is there something I'm doing wrong other than following the Firefox prompts to save a password?

Hi! I am hiding the toolbar when browsing web pages to maximize the screen spaces. However, when playing full-screen videos (all HTML5 videos), the lowest part of the video are missing. It seems like that part are squeezed out of the screen. If I uncheck the "hide toolbar" function, it fixed. See the lowest part of the attached image.

Every time I want to go to twitch.tv and type "tw" in the address bar, Twitter is the first suggestion. I don't want to go to Twitter. I've followed all the instructions in this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions#firefox:mac:fx109 and still the problem persists.

When I use shift delete, it does remove the suggestion, but then as soon as I add an i (making "twi"), Twitter is back at the top again. I've deleted every instance of Twitter in my history/cookies/cache and it keeps doing this.

Why can't Firefox prioritize a website I visit daily and have several bookmarks of (Twitch) over promoting a website I do not want to visit? Please fix this.

I tried to access a U California Master Gardener website: https://ncmg.ucanr.org/. I've accessed this for years. Yesterday, when on my Mac using Firefox, I'd get message, "SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE." (I attached screenshot.) I tried closing Firefox and reopening, cleared all browser history and other cache, and substituted "www" for "https:/" No change. I thought it was the website until I found that I can still access it on Firefox using my iPhone. (I can also access it via Chrome.)

Please advise.

Thanks! Chrissy

I can not select a Downloads folder and even if "Always Ask" is set, all Downloads of all types fail immediately.

See quick screenshare here: https://www.loom.com/share/c5bc3563630f4d1182199ee7787e32f4

I've tried many of the common things: uninstalled/reinstalled start with add-ons disabled refreshed

None of them solved the issue.

Any thoughts/insights?

You used to be able to "Paste and Match Style" by either right-clicking and selecting "Paste and Match Style" or by pressing cmd+shift+v. This seems to have gone away in recent versions. I don't use it too often, so I'm not 100% sure when this change was made, but it is not there in the latest version. This is essentially required when pasting from certain apps into a rich text editor on a website. OneNote, for example, requires this. Now if I want to copy something from OneNote into a rich text editor (like a GitHub issue or Stackoverflow answer) in Firefox, I have to first paste it into a text editor and then copy again to paste it in the browser.

I'm attaching two screenshots one of the context menu when pasting into the body of a GitHub issue in Firefox from OneNote and another of the context menu while doing the same thing in Chrome.

Is this expected? It seems odd to remove the feature when it makes working between other widely-used apps difficult.

Hi, I'm having this very annoying problem with Firefox (v109.9) on my MAC (macBook Pro 2020 - macOS Monterey v12.6). I used to do this (and actually still successfully doing it, on another MAC machine) to create a web page shortcut on the desktop or in a folder, by drag and drop, but it's impossible for me to do it on this machine and I can't figure out what could be the problem.

After clicking on the padlock icon, to the left of the address bar, I can easily drag it to the destination I prefer (eg a folder) but when I release the mouse button the operation doesn't work. Unlike what happens in the other MAC machine, doing the same operation, the button does not turn into the green "+" icon and suddenly disappears, without doing anything and without giving me any warning.

I've tried reading suggestions on the web, but haven't found anything that really gives me a solution. Could it be one of my browser's security settings? Please, please, could you help me? I need this feature very often, so if I don't fix this soon I will be forced to switch browsers.

Thank you very much for you attention! Lu

Hi All. Love FF but there's one thing that's driving me crazy... the different color of the Library window (see screen grab). The main window is this nice dark "cool gray" color, but the library window is this greenish color.

Is there a way to change that? I've had the userChrome.css file installed and feel fairly comfortable making code edits.

Thanks in advance.
