Recently the strava web site login page started using up all the RAM (8GB in total, typically 3-4GB free) on my MAC (OS Mojave) when using Firefox (78.0.2 (64-bit).

FirefoxCP Web Content is the app using up the RAM/Resources.

I suspect this is due to all the trackers strava.com is running and I have firefox setup with 'Enhanced Tracking Protection: Always On'

Blocking Cookies - Cross site and media trackers tracking content - in all windows cryptominers fingerprinters

I always run the Facebook Container.

Note, this problem started about 10-12 days ago, before the garmin ransomware (fwiw).

Note, I don't have any issues with the strava.com/login page consuming resources when using Chrome with Privacy Badger and Adblock Plus.

This is just an FYI - since unsure if it is just a 'my machine' issue. Not ready to test in Firefox without all the enhanced protection yet...

I am using Outlook.com (aka Outlook webmail, Hotmail) and the spell-check option no longer works. I write in multiple languages and have always had the option to access the drop-down menu to choose the language from the dictionaries that I have downloaded and/or chose the correct spelling of the word. This drop-down menu no longer appears.

I have reset Firefox to default settings. I then reinstalled the dictionaries that I used. I have also used Fred McD's suggestion:

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar.

Type: layout.spellcheckDefault Its values are; 0 Spell Checker Off 1 Check Only Multi-Line Input Boxes. 2 Check Multi And Single Line Input Boxes.

Nothing worked.

I went to send feedback from the Outlook.com feedback icon to the right of the e-mail page and spell-check was working there. It does not work, though, within the body of the e-mail. I spent two hours with Microsoft tech support by chat and they were not able to fix this problem.

The red squiggly line appears here now as I type (and most everywhere else except Outlook.com) and I am able to access the drop-down spelling menu.

It seems like there needs to be a technical resolution between Microsoft and Mozilla Firefox.

Thanks for any help.

Dear community,

I am desperately looking for a way to handle custom protocols in Firefox on macOS (both up-to-date). I have seen many questions and many answers, most of them are outdated or irrelevant.

On our intranet, some of the pages have links pointing to "ictfast:xxxxxx". The first part (ictfast) is never changing. The second part (xxxxxx) can be anything. I would like to run an external application when people click on such links.

What I have done so far: step #A1: In "about:config", I created and set the key "network.protocol-handler.expose.ictfast" to false. step #A2: I clicked on a link "ictfast:xxxxxx" step #A3: A box appeared letting me choose my external application

After these steps, if I click on a "ictfast" link, the application runs but I can't access the content in "xxxxxx".

To reproduce this, it is very simple: step #B1: open Automator step #B2: create a new Application step #B3: add the "Run Shell Script" actions step #B4: choose "Pass input" to as arguments" step #B5: remove the default content of the shell script step #B6: type in `echo "$@" > /tmp/args.txt` (without the backticks) step #B7: save and choose this app in step #A3

Now if you click on a "ictfast" link, the file in "/tmp/args.txt" is created, but is empty. There is no arguments passed to the applications.

I was naively believing that when clicking on a "ictfast" link, Firefox would internally run the command `/foo/bar/whatever.app "address"`. But it seems to be more complicated and cryptic than that.

Could anyone help me on this? Thanks!

I am going crazy as I have somehow lost the ability to copy and paste anything from a Firefox window or address bar into another document ie... email, word, text edit, atom—nothing.

I have tried the About:config solution to no avail. Sometimes the copy and paste will work for a minute or so when opening Firefox, but it quickly degrades.

I have looked into settings for the browser as well and I can't find anything that would affect copy and paste. This change seemed to have happen a few weeks ago with an update that was released.

What is happening?!?!?!

I have Tweetdeck in a pinned tab. There are a lot of columns, which I navigate by swiping left/right on my Magic Mouse. When I swipe to the left, to return to the first column, it often swipes a little bit too far and Firefox interprets that as a request to "back arrow" to the previous page, which is my Firefox home screen.

Is there any way to disable this behavior, so that a long left swipe will move the screen all the way to the left edge and stop there, without going all the way back to the Firefox home screen?

When using voice.google.com in Firefox the recipient can't hear me at all. This problem is intermittent. After I've restarted my Mac, things seem to work fine for a while. Then, after a while, the recipient can't hear me when I make a call.

I've given Firefox permission for google to use the internal microphone. The mic symbol flashes red. Another issue: the flashing red mic keeps flashing even after the phone call is ended.

I've tried clearing out cookies/cache, closing/reopening the page, closing/reopening the browser.

I've tried google voice in Chrome. I was not mute in that call. Thanks for any help.

I've been using Firefox for years most recently on a Windows machine but I've just switched back to a Mac. I'm having issues with bookmarks and I'm doing what I've always done but now am having a couple issues so I don't know if it is due to switching systems or if I have an issue.

In any case... I like my bookmarks in the toolbar so that is where I aim to put them. I exported my bookmarks from my PC, imported the file and thought I was fine but now I see that not all of the bookmarks are there in the toolbar, most are but not all. Then when I check the recently bookmarked, the missing ones are listed among the others but do not appear where I can find them.

Then I exported from my work PC to a file as before, imported the file and can not find any of them anywhere, keep trying and can't find them.

And now while on a page I click the blue star as I always have, have it pointed to the toolbar folder, click done, check the toolbar and not there. Keep trying and during the process I see an option to remove 3 bookmarks next to option DONE, so I suspect it is something I'm not understanding but on my PC I've never had issues with this.

Hi Firefox Community!

Earlier today, I updated to the latest version of Firefox (79.0). Now, everything I saved in Pocket (my entire list) is gone. Also, when I clicked on "View Pocket List", I was prompted - for the first time ever - to sign in to access it.

I'm very confused, and upset, as I had a number of web pages and articles that were very important to me.

If anyone can help, I would be truly grateful.

Thanks, Lynda
