Hard to describe. I sign onto Facebook without problem, scroll down once or twice, and then it goes crazy. The postings in front of your eyes are replaced by others so quickly they can't be read. I'm not having this problem on other browsers. Yeah, I know it's Facebook but I'd like to fix it anyway. I'm running OS 11.6.7. The Firefox version is 103.0 64-bit. Any suggestions?

OK, I'm not a techie, so forgive my lack of accurate vernacular here, but I was a happy-go-lucky Mozilla supporter and user on all my Apple devices up until recently. I have no idea if there's a causal relationship here, but the serendipity seems to be something worth mentioning.

I signed up for the Mozilla VPN offering in October of 2022. I did not work well enough, and again, I'm a novice at such things, but I stopped using it within a week. Around the end of December, the Firefox browser has had serious problems where it would constantly crash on just about every page, sometimes multiple times. After a few days of that, I trashed the version I had and downloaded and installed the newest version just last weekend (01 JAN 2023). That lasted a few days, but now, all of a sudden, it will not open at all. I click the icon, it bobs twice, then nothing happens. The right-click "open" feature did likewise. I trashed that too and I am unwillingly to try again until I hear some feedback on this from subject-matter experts, if possible.

With my phone and iPad things are working just fine, so it must be my 5-year-old iMac that has been updated to version 12.6.2 just yesterday. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. I was using Ghostery and every other security feature I could find with Firefox, but in this age of Surveillance Capitalism, who knows what works anymore.

Thanks in advance, and wishing you all well in every way, sincerely.

HI FIREFOX! Many websites are not readable. I can see these correctly in Safari. I tried getting the latest Firefox updates. It did not fix the issues. Bizarrely, I can paste into another application and read the gobblity gook. So I think it is just a font issue. I really do not want to go back to Safari. Poshmark and Fedex are the two websites I experienced issues with today. Fedex would not interact properly with Firefox but I could find my tracking information on Safari. I have had the problem previously but did not have time to look into it that day. 16" Macbook Max M1 running Monterey

I received an email suggesting that I update my Firefox or I would lose syncing function. I have two computers. A fairly new iMac Ventura 13.6.8 running Firefox 123.0 64 bit which it says is up to date. But I also have an older iMac OSX 10.11.6 El Capiten running Firefox 78.15.0 ESR. I can't update the OS or Firefox on the old computer. So if I do nothing - will I still be able to sync on the newer Mac. I'm not too worried about the old one - I don't use it much for browsing - more for documents. Thank you. David Rimell

I'm using firefox 97 on mac. Whenever I copy and paste an image from firefox, the image comes out desaturated as if it is using the wrong color profile. I tried changing the gfx.color_management settings without it improving. The images look fine and are the right colors in the browser, however, the issue only happens when I copy and paste images. Firefox behaves like the color management is disabled (set to 0 in config) but ONLY when copying and pasting images.

I do not have this issue with other browsers such as chrome.

Problem: "Video cannot be played on your device as it does not meet content protection standards" Message when trying to stream videos but only on Amazon Prime.

I have searched the internet for an answer only to be told the problem lies in the browser. I find this confusing because a few months ago I was always watching Amazon Prime videos on Firefox browser. What has changed? How can I correct it? I have the latest Firefox update (108.0.1 64 bit) on my mac Book Pro, MacOS Ventura 13.1.

Thanks for any help you may be able to offer,

Happy Christmas,

I use a 2017 Apple Desk top Retina 4. I just made Firefox my default browser, trying to allow all cookies for my online banking with dollar bank. I have always had this account on Firefox, since 2020, but for some mysterious reason after successfully logging on, with access to all my data, I am automatically logged out as soon as I select Pay My Bills. Advice from dollar customer service is not helpful. I don't want to erase all my cookie/cache files. (pop up windows are allowed). Are there steps I should take to be sure all cookies are allowed for this particular site? Ventura 13.2.1 is the latest Apple OS.

I have the latest versions of firefox installed on both my iMac and my MacBook Air. Both computers running the same IOS. Both Firefox versions have exactly the same preference settings. The iMac gets an occasional 502 Bad Gateway notification and will not go to that website. The MacBook Air does not get these issues. Both computers are running the same anti-virus software.

This message started happening 3-4 weeks ago and is baffling as you cannot get to that webpage on the iMac but at the same time I get to it fine on the MacBook Air.

What is causing this issue??

My Mac: macOS Monterey 12.5.1 Firefox: 105.0.1 Since I updated my system Firefox has trouble loading and closing some pages, especially my BOA and ATT.net email accounts. Any thoughts on why this is happening and what to do about it? It's especially concerning with the sites I go to to pay bills.

ATT.net I can sign in OK but then I get a page that says redirecting and it never loads. When I use Chrome, I'm not having a problem. All my bookmarks are set in Firefox so I'd rather not have to change them all over to Chrome. I can sign into my BOA account with no problem. When I sign out of BOA I get a window with a spinning dial that says signing out please wait but it never stops, leaving me wondering if it's exposed.

Thanks, Marnie McNamara

When I select "Add Bookmark" from the Bookmark dropdown menu on the menu bar, the popup menu to select the location (folder) to place the bookmark quickly flashes open and closed. The bookmark is created, but it is created in the last place that a bookmark was added. If I am still on that tab and I try to use "Edit Bookmark" from the menu bar to open the pop up it also just flashes up and closes.

If I move away from that tab to another one, and then come back to it, the "Edit Bookmark is not even listed as an option."

Can you please assist.

Hello

Hoping someone can help me with this asap.

I was prompted to update firefox on my mac laptop.

So I did the update by clicking the button available at the top of the firefox browser, but now I can not open Firefox at all.

When I click on the firefox icon it does not open firefox and this message appears: You can't use this version of the application "Firefox with the version of OS X. You have OS X 10.11.6 . The application requires OS X 10.12 or later.

I understand what this means but not sure how to revert back to the previous version of firefox.

When installing the new update/version of firefox, i have deleted the old version of firefox.

I am following these instructions currently to try to resolve it: https://www.wikihow.com/Downgrade-Firefox

Following the instructions above I went to: https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ , but can not find the previous version of firefox that I need.

The only info I have on firefox is version 102.2.0. I am after the version before this as assume that is the one compatable with my laptop currently (i can not update the OS ).

Can you help me download the previous version so it is compatable with my mac laptop?

Thanks for your help in advance
