Why is the 78.0.1 download for MacOS called "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg" and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg"?

The download dialogue (image attached) that appeared said that it wanted to download "Firefox 78.0.1esr.dmg". The "esr" in the filename surprised me, as I'm not on any ESR release train. Why is it named that and not "Firefox 78.0.1.dmg", similar to its predecessors?

Hello helpers! I have lost my bookmarks and several add-ons after latest install (77.0.1). I can't find old profiles to use and restoring to an older bookmarks backup doesn't work either; I get an error message "unable to process the backup file - but it does at least see the last relevant version from 10.6.2020.

To compound the problem, whist working my way through several solutions offered on these forums, I hit the Refresh Firefox button, which created an Old Firefox Data folder on my desktop - but seems to only contains the new stuff after today's upgrade) AND I also reset my Firefox password and got the message that Personal Data will be lost so that has added to the problem. Basically a massive mess!

Can I revert to the older Version of Firefox or using an old computer backup or is there another way to fix this?? It's nearly 3000 bookmarks going way back to 2014 - I'd be gutted to lose it all.

I appreciate any help - thanks in advance! Nicole

My google maps is unable to access my location even though I have allowed location access from Firefox preferences/settings. The blue target button (Current Location) on Google maps is greyed out, and when I hover over it it says that access is not allowed. Even though when I'm in google maps, the Address bar shows that my location access is allowed, as well as in the Firefox settings. I have refreshed the window multiple times, restarted Firefox, cleared all cookies, and restarted my computer. I've also toggled the enhanced tracking protection in the address bar to off, restarted the browser, still not working. Everything in the settings tells me that access is allowed, yet google maps still tells me that it is denied. Has anyone had this problem, or know of a workaround or how to fix this? Thanks! (Working on Firefox 75. with a MAC)

I have already emptied the cache and done the myriad of other things Firefox recommended trying but it has changed nothing.

I noticed that my Facebook feed is also broken in Firefox, but they claim that it is a permanent break and that there is no fix (for firefox 70.0 and up).

I need this particular widget to work. I am running WordPress 4.9.13

A recent upgrade introduced a regression for me: FF crashes as soon as I use FUS to switch to another user account or even to the login screen.

This is on Mac OS X 10.9.5 (old but stable and I need to stick to it until further notice), I have an external screen which is also the main screen (has the menubar).

I haven't yet figured out how to get access to the stack backtraces (before or after submitting) but it looks like FF is trying to access some resource that gets invalidated when FUS triggers. It's the only application I've ever seen that cannot survive a FUS trip...

Can anyone reproduce this?

Firefox 70.0 on mac mini 2012 running OS X 10.9.5 If I have several tabs open and I try to quit Firefox I get a blank dialogue box and then a death beach ball forcing me to Force Quit. The blank dialogue box use to ask me if I wanted to close the tabs. Which I answered yes and then Firefox would close down. Is my only solution to close all tabs first ?

v70 seems to have reset my config settings and brought back the urlbar suggestions dropdown.

When I had this same problem back in v65, it was solved by going to about:config, search for "browser.urlbar.maxRichResults", and set the value to 0. FF V70 has reset the value to 10.

When I try to reset the value to 0, though, double-clicking on the value gives me a blank dropdown menu, and FF immediately locks-up (completely unresponsive and a beachballing cursor), and I have to force-quit. I get the same result by right-clicking the value and selecting Modify. So, now I'm stuck with the urlbar suggestions, and apparently I can't edit *any* config settings.

I cloned the my FF profile from a well set-up computer A to a new computer B following the instructions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles . I gave the profile on comp. B a new name.

The operation seems to have been successful, except for the tab syncing feature. I don't see the tabs from both A and B in the synced tabs dialog. Instead, I see tabs open on the one or the other computer, or a combination thereof.

If I had to guess I would assume that each profile has a unique ID, invisible to the user but determinant for distinquishing devices (profiles).

If accurate: how to change that Id?

Hello Everyone !

This happens on Mac OS 10.9 / iMac and 10.12.x MacBookPro 2017 with actual Firefox 68.x 64Bit

When I read news or facebook, I like to open interesting links in new tabs (via secondary mouse click) in order to not disturb the reading flow of the main page, so after reading the newly opened tab, I will return to the first tab, where facebook or lets say, some news mainpage is.

In order to navigate through pages I scroll the mouse ball or the magic mouse (Apple) . But in 30% of the cases, when I return back to the first tab, scrolling the mouse wheel/ball causes the original tab (the one I left before opening the link in a new tab) to zoom in and out, instead of moving content up or down, as it was before. When I come back to the facobook page, and it starts to zoom in and out violently, the macbook processor starts to blow hard, because of the increased processor load.

The only way to return the scroll behaviour back to normal, is to reload the current page, then of course scrolling the mouse wheel will normally move content up or down, as before.

Installed Add Ons: Ad-Guard Adblocker, Zoom Page WE

The phänomen occurs also without Add-Ons, and with Magic Mouse as well as with the older Scroll-Ball Mouse from Apple.

I already tried mousewheel.with_meta.action.override=0 and alle other mousewheel.with_meta.delta=0, but didnt´hepl anything.

Thanks for help in advance ! LG Jürgen

After updating to Firefox 65 (Mac), there is now this enormous green drop-down that appears whenever I start typing in the address bar, and I cannot turn this thing off.

I've looked in Preferences > Privacy & Security > Address Bar, and all the selections there are unchecked. Search > Default Search Engine > Provide Search Selections is also unchecked.

Is there something in about:config I need to toggle? Or will I have to edit my userChrome.css to turn this off?

Thanks!

Hours and hours of trying and I can't Whitlest some of the effected sites Like Washingtontimes.com and Dailycaller.com. I probably have 20 hours of attempting to Whitelist. I'm a little computer literate, no expert. I got into Firefox by accident and thought I was filling out a form. I didn't know I was in a place where I could actually change things. I have used some popup features to Whitelist on some sites with success. However, the washingtontimes.com and the Dailycaller.com I can't get anything done. The Daily Caller's pop up doesn't work. The Washington Times has nothing to fill out.

I'm hoping I can be directed back into Firefox and restore everything as it was before. Screenshots or good direction would be wonderful. I'm an old guy and spend a great deal of my time on the computer. Thanks for any help that can be provided.
