Hi, I tried to download a script but Firefox warned me it had a virus / malware. So I immediately put it in trash, emptied trash, restarted my Macbook and used Bitdefender to scan my Mac. Fortunately it detected no viruses. So I think I'm good (Hopefully!)

But, every time I open Firefox now, a little window appears at the top showing my last download and telling me it had a virus or malware - I'm posting a screenshot of this. I removed it from my history, and cleared the preview panel, but it still pops up. To be clear, this only happens when I completely close Firefox and reopen it, not when I just open new windows or tabs.

How can I get it to stop popping up with this message? Also - one other oddity, each time I open Firefox, it says the time this script was downloaded matches the time I open Firefox (as opposed to when I actually downloaded the pdf - about an hour ago)

Grammarly.com is not letting me log in because the continue bar keeps loading. It won't let me enter my email and press enter, nor is autofill working. I've contacted them, but the solutions they're telling me to do have had no success. I've already disabled other extensions to see if that was the problem, but it wasn't. I cleared cache and cookies, and I've also removed the autofill option as well. My firefox is up to date.

Hello, so I am not very experienced and recently discovered how to customize Fire Fox using the userChrome.css file. I went through all of the steps that are required in order to do this. I set up a folder called chrome in the directory /Users/my name/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/x1oheo82.default-release To test if it works I wrote this into the userChrome.css file: @namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul"); /* set default namespace to XUL */

  1. TabsToolbar{ background-color: #FF0000 !important }

and set toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets to true After restarting Fire Fox I saw that nothing changed. I double checked if there was a hidden file extension or if I might be in the wrong directory. I tried different code to see if there was some error in the code but nothing changed. I watched countless tutorials on You Tube and tried to find answers on google but nothing that I did seemed to help. I don't know if it has something to do with the operating system I am running or if it is a limitation of my computer hardware (I am running Fire Fox on an m1 mac).

I don't know if this is a problem with my installation, but websites without specific favicons (e.g.: https://forum.librivox.org/index.php?sid=fd7dca1ba59c207dd25121695677d565) don't have a placeholder icon in the tab. Is this intended behavior? There's the globe icon for bookmarks without favicons, couldn't that be used if a website doesn't have one? I think that would contribute to some visual consistency :)

I have looked across various support forums for information on this, I only see posts regarding favicons and bookmarks, not the tab itself, so apologies if this has been asked and answered already!

Hi,

i am having a rather weird and persistent issue. When I try to open a specific website, namely www.westend61.de, this Firefox tab crashes, as seen in the provided screenshot. With a normal website this wouldn't bother me so much, but this page is the main page of the company I work for, and therefore I and potential customers must be able to reach it. That being said, this does not necessarily have to be a Firefox problem, the issue could also be on the server side. But the website works on other computers, other operating systems and other browsers. As far as I know, the website works fine, this computer using this browser being the only exception. I worked my way through the Firefox support page:

- checked for newer firefox version - checked for newer compatible MacOS version - checked for newer graphics driver - disabled all firewall, anti virus software - started firefox in Safe Mode - reinstalled firefox & deleted all profile data - disabled hardware acceleration - set webgl.disabled to true - again safe mode

The tab crashes every time. This computer is an old End 2015 iMac running Monterey and the newest Firefox. - More information can be found in the troubleshooting information and the crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/bb11e42d-9fc9-4061-b89c-4c6400220503

Thank you very much.

Hello,

Before the release of Firefox 99, the drag and drop function of e-mail using OWA (Microsoft Outlook) stopped working. In the last version of 99, it started working again (and I was very happy). My browser just updated to 100 and it stopped working again (and, of course, Firefox recommends not downgrading).

This is getting very frustrating, as I use Firefox at work and it is actually a lot of time wasted, going in and attaching files without drag and drop. I am on the verge of abandoning Firefox as my browser, since these features work in both Safari and Chrome. However, I do like the usability and security of Firefox, so I am hoping you can fix this very soon.

On my old (Intel based) MacPro Zoho email works fine. On my new M1 chip MacPro when I first open Zoho, or open an email, the page does not render properly at first (buttons/links don't work etc). After a delay it refreshes and shows properly. The delay depends on how fast my internet is - in the evening it can be a minute or so. Even when the internet is good I still get 2 versions of a page with a pause in between.

I tried on Safari and it works fine - which makes me think this is a Firefox issue.

I have some screen shots but when I click the browse button below I can select a file then it just endlessly shows working. I will have to email these to you separately

Thanks Phil.

When playing music on music.youtube.com, if I navigate away from the tab, by either moving to a different tab or opening a different application the music pauses. This happens consistently with two different Firefox profiles.

I admittedly have a quite a few plugins installed, so I tested this in a private window and this issue does not occur.

I attempted disabling the obvious plugins UBlock, 'I don't care about cookies', and Tampermonkey without any success. I also tried using a different user-agent without any success.

The Firefox desktop browser default font is replacing all fonts on some websites, only title fonts on some others, and then leaving others unchanged. It seems random, and I can't stop the default font from taking over randomly on most websites no matter what I do. This was not happening until today, and no browsers or general MacBook Air preferences were changed between today and yesterday when I last used the browser on desktop.

Under Firefox Preferences » Fonts » Advanced, I've made sure to check the box to "Allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of your selections above", and I've unchecked it, and I've re-checked it, and the default is still overriding fonts on most websites.

I've quit and restarted Firefox 3 times.

Help!
