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?

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.

My google calendar will not load appointments. The page loads but the appointments never load and the blue loading bar at the top continues to refresh as if it is trying to load.

Things I have tried - Turned off all extensions - Ran firefox incognito (works if I clear the cache) - Cleared Cache (works only once)

I am looking first for a solution to the problem above. If I don't find one, is there a way to reload firefox and retian all the bookmarks?

I am running Firefox 84.0.2 on a Macbook Pro running Catalina 10.15.7. Since the new version of Firefox loaded on January 6, I have been having problems with how email from several vendors displays. If I call up Hotmail, for example, the page appears in teeny tiny type, so small that I have to pull the computer close to my face to read. And if I enlarge the page in order to read the left-most column, I can then only see the left-most column on my screen. I have to then scroll far to the right to find the actual message itself. I have tried the various "Display" options, but none of them have fixed this problem.

I switched over to Chrome as a test, and Hotmail is displaying normally there. So I conclude that there is some incompatibility between Firefox 84.0.2 and Catalina 10.15.7.

Any advice would be most welcome!

Thanks!

Hey team, I would like to know if there is a way to "name" the firefox window? I have multiple theme windows (for instance, one is for all recipes, one is for all news pages, one is for all online classes) with multiple tabs open and would like to find a way to navigate between them in an easier way. Naming them would be lovely, so I could name the window "recipes" and find the right one easier in the dock.

Anyone knows a trick? If it doesn't exist, any way to hint to the developers that this would be helpful? :) It could be just me though :)

Thank you for your thoughts,

I have posed this question under "Fix slowness, crashing, error messages and other problems," and under "Other," and have not gotten a single response. So I am trying it again here.

This is a major glitch, and I am surprised that no one else is dealing with it too!

Is there anyone who works for Mozilla who monitors these forums who can help?
=========

After upgrading to FF 84, my previous sessions are no longer saved and restored unless I restart in Safe Mode.

- I have Restore previous session checked in Preferences.

- I have opened new windows and tabs and one by one disabled and restored every add-on that I have had enabled and quit and restarted each time, until every single add-on has been disabled, and still the previous sessions are not saved and restored.

- I have looked in the sessionstore-backups folder with each restart, and there is never any file for the previous sessions in it.

- I have cleared all my cache before quitting and restarting.

- Again, even when there are absolutely no add-ons enabled, the previous session is not saved and not restored.

- Again, only when I restart in Safe Mode is the previous session saved and restored.

What is the solution?

This question is on behalf of my mother, who has been using firefox for years and has an extensive 'library' of bookmarks and tags and history that she relies on and doesn't want to lose. She either never has had, or has forgotten, a login password, and when prompted to request a new one, it appears that all her existing history would be wiped. How can she ensure that all the painstaking work to create bookmarks and folders and tagged history is not lost? How can she save this data so as to be sure to be able to access it? Thanks in advance for any tips!

I have tried the existing recommendations to delete item(s) beginning with print_ that had no effect. I copied prefs.js and removed all items beginning with print and replaced existing prefs file. Curiously that change worked at least twice before trying PDF print preview. After trying the preview the print function went back to taking 30 to 60 seconds to respond.

Print and print preview work fine in Chrome and Safari.

I have a macbook air and a new macbook pro. The macbook pro works well. I compared the config print items and found no obvious discrepancies. Both macbooks are on Firefox 84.0.2

My significant other blames Apple. I am convinced the problem lies with Firefox. Oh -- print screens are not worthwhile since we're talking a major time delay.

Printing from Firefox is really slow--2-3 minutes before the print menu appears, and then another minute before the printer actually goes to work. "Printing" to a .pdf file takes just a long before the file appears on the desktop.

The problem is uniform across all the websites I've tried it on.

I don't have the problem with Safari or Chrome.

Restarting Firefox with add-ons disabled makes no difference. Deleting the printer setting didn't help. Resetting all Firefox printer settings didn't help. Refreshing Firefox helped once, but only for the first print job after the refresh, then the problem reappeared.

This issue started fairly recently, maybe when Firefox v.84 appeared (?)

I'm using Firefox 84.0.2 and macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on a late 2012 iMac.

This problem does not show up in the family's MacBook Pros, which have the same version of Firefox, but newer OS versions.

I'm resistant to updating the OS, because too many of the apps I use regularly don't play nicely with the newer versions of macOS.

Help!

Thanks, Wimsey
