I am currently running Firefox on High Sierra 10.13.6 and have been advised that that OS will soon no longer be supported. I did have an option to do an update to ESR 115.1 in my Firefox app, however I was not home for a few days and when I returned planning to do the update it was no longer available. Now it just says my Firefox is up to date with 115.0.2... how can I get the update to the ESR 115.1? Thanks!

The file-picker (when I choose any file related operation such as Open File, Save As, etc) on just one of my machines is far larger than my desktop size (and the window appears not to be resizable).

When I trigger any such operation I'm presented with what looks like a blank screen as I a shown part of the vast unused area of this oversized window. If I force my wm to allow me to move the window I can use the file picker with a lot of painful repeated scrolling around but otherwise it's unusable.

Any idea why firefox might be doing this or where it might have cached the file picker size? There doesn't appear to be anything related in about:config or userprefs.js

Starting up in trubleshooting mode doesn't have any effect on this.

I have Mac 10.12.6 on an "early 2009" 27" iMac. I'm waiting for the new 27/32inch iMac until I upgrade hardware and operating system. The release notes with FF V115 say in part " Users on those operating systems will be migrated to the ESR 115 version of Firefox."

I want to clarify that when I update to FF 116, FF will automatically install the ESR version, or will I need to do this manually? Also, will this update take a long time, like FF will be installing a totally new (ESR) version, rather than "just" the usual update?

Whenever I type something in the URL bar that starts with the word "amazon," instead of getting a Google search for what I typed, I get redirected to Amazon.com with whatever I typed as a product search. For example, if I type "amazon sucks" in Firefox's URL bar, instead of getting a Google search for the phrase "amazon sucks," I get an Amazon page with the word "sucks" pre-filled in Amazon's product search (and a screen full of socks).

I don't have a search keyword for "amazon" in my Firefox settings. As far as I can tell, no other magic word does the same thing. (For example, if I type "yahoo sucks" or "walmart sucks," I get the desired Google searches. I don't get redirected to a Yahoo or Walmart page.

How do I turn this behavior off?

In Firefox-Mac, I used to be able to save webpages as PDFs without page breaks as one long page (sometimes 120 inches), depending on the page. The newer version it doesn't work. Now I have to use Safari (!) for this. This is a useful feature for proofreading, where page breaks often break up or omit entire sentences.

I've noticed this issue happening randomly, some of my toolbar bookmarks listed on the sidebar just up and disappear from view. As if they were never there. But I know they're still saved because when I click to Manage Bookmarks and check them there, they show up fine. The toolbar just randomly hides them for whatever reason, and I can only fix it by closing Firefox and opening it again.

I'm on the current version. I remember accessing about:support and clicking on Verify Integrity while trying troubleshoot some other issue, but don't know if that could've caused it though.

Hello there. Ever since the latest update (to 115.0.2), I've been experiences random crashes. It's only happening with these 2 sites: https://www.mapsofworld.com/ and https://www.buongiorno.sk/ (there may be more but I haven't discovered any others as of yet). I open the sites and FF immediately shuts down. And then, after I restart it, there are no crashes listed in the logs (about:crashes). I've tried everything. Cookies, cache, a "refresh", a fresh install and I've also checked my system and HDD for errors but nothing helped. Any idea what I should do? The problem seems to be on your side, not mine

Every day. Videos won't play. sometimes one restart of firefox will fix it. sometimes multiple restarts are required before it'll work. The loading bar at the bottom of the video (on the seek bar) indicates the video is loading but it won't play. There have been times where I have disabled every single add-on and it would not work. Add-ons do not seem to be the cause. I have tried it in a private browser window with no joy. I have refreshed firefox, I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. I have tried disabling my antivirus. I have tested videos on websites in other browsers with no issue. The issue seems to be with the video player itself. overlays seem unaffected, I can use the seek bar and it shows the captions. I have tested different websites including Youtube, Vimeo and Steam. I tried many tens of times to get it working today to no avail. finally when I closed nearly all my tabs, the video worked (but I had also opened TOR and run avideo in that), I am not sure if this is the cause. If the cause is having multiple tabs open, this is an issue for me. I have a learning disability and likely ADHD and I have a set of tabs as my homepages so I don't forget things. If It's not the mutliple tabs, then what else can I do?

I've noticed forever in FF (v115) that whenever I try to play an audio stream on a web page, like a soundcloud or other stream (that shows a waveform and a play button, not video) that I always get clicking and popping at regular intervals. I've always suspected it is due to a sample rate mismatch between FF and my MOTU UltraLite Hybrid MK3, which is always set at 48kHz. I've tried myriad settings to remedy the issue to no avail. Here is an example - scroll down to the Demos: section and play one of the streams.

Today, I tried opening the same web page in Edge and all of the streams I tried played PERFECTLY without the clicking and popping. I click back over to FF and play the streams and there is the clicking and popping. This leads me to believe that this is a FF problem, and not with the audio interface or Windows 10 Sound. Sometimes, rarely, I experience the same issue with YouTube videos, but it is always with audio streams.

Does anyone know why this occurs and if there is a way to fix it. It is so frustrating that I'm seriously considering giving up on FF after 20+ years. This has been happening as long as I can remember, and I kept hoping it would get resolved at some point, or I'd find a fix or hidden setting, but that doesn't look likely. Maybe somebody can help?

In case anyone's interested, under Debian 12, when I resume from hibernation, if I have Firefox running as well as Tbird, if I click on a link in an email, the existing instance of Firefox is ignored and a new instance is opened. The first instance is in fact frozen -- it looks as it should but trying to change tabs or open a new tab is inactive. Seems I have to kill the open instance of FF, then if I click on a link in an email, FF pops up as it should with a new tab for the link, but the existing tabs are all there and all functional. It feels like a bug -- Tbird seems not to know that FF is already running.

Running Windows 10 and Firefox 102.9.0esr 64-bit. I seem to have affected the print facility so that the contents of a frame within a webpage do not print. The frame contents do show on the preview screen but then disappear when the Print button is pressed and they are not printed. The rest of the webpage is printed OK. Typically this happens to the 'Sellers Description' on an Ebay item. I have upgraded to Firefox 115.7.0esr but this has not fixed the problem. The print works fine on another machine running Windows 10 and Firefox 91.6.0esr 64-bit. Is there a way to get the full print back? Regards, LRB

I've been watching and following along with a Unreal Engine 4 Course on Youtube for some time now (mentioning in case the resource usage has something to do with it), and in the past couple days I've noticed a pretty serious and annoying bug. When I pause the video, tab (Cmd + Tab on MacOS) into Unreal Engine, do some things, then tab back and resume the video, it will play for one frame and then stop and buffer, but the audio will continue playing. The only way to get the video to resume is to skip forward/backward in the video (either with the arrow keys or the progress bar). I've also tried Troubleshooting/Safe mode and the issue still persits.
