Here are the facts of my case, now closed as duplicate.

I just remembered that heretofore, Firefox has automatically disabled Add Ons that were amiss. Rather than action DrMoishe Pippik's bifurcation stopgap myself, can't I do nothing — and wait a week or two — if someone more technologically skillful deduces the astray Add On, and Firefox disables it?

I have the home tab set to a specific US news website. I use a VPN and it connects to a US server. With VPN off or on, the set URL used to work when I clicked the home tab. Now, with VPN off or on, when I click the home tab, it takes me to the local language version, not the English US URL version. I doubled checked my settings, and it still is for the US URL. Any ideas?

I have a new installation of Firefox on a new M1 MacBook Pro. I copied over carefully selected settings files from my old computer, and now several icons are missing from the drop-down search and address boxes. I attempted renaming several of my transferred files to see if Firefox would rebuild them and correct the problem without success. Reinstalling Firefox was likewise unsuccessful. Does anyone know how to restore them? Please see attached image. Thank you.

Beginning yesterday after installing a set of fresh MacOS updates, Firefox is repeatedly hanging on my iMac. My computer CPU spins up and Activity Monitor tells me that the process trustd is having a field day, up to 99% CPU usage. Then Firefox stops everything and in the middle of something basic like opening a search engine page or scrolling on an already-open page, I get a spinning rainbow ball of death and have to Force Quit from the taskbar several times before it closes.

Here is what I have tried to resolve:

  • Deleting and reinstalling
  • Troubleshooting mode
  • Downgrading to version 93.0
  • Stopping and restarting the trustd process from both Activity Monitor and from Terminal
  • Full deletion of all Firefox files from command line and installing 96.0.2.

The same problem keeps recurring. For reference, it's on a 2020 iMac running macOS Catalina (10.15.7), i9/16GB. My other machines are not affected. I have not yet upgraded to Big Sur or Monterrey on advice of workplace sysadmin.

Is anyone else seeing this issue with trustd? I am not seeing this problem with other software, just Firefox, but I can't figure out when Firefox calls trustd and what it asks it to do when it does.

Advice warmly welcome.

In my settings I have enabled that FF asks me where to save files whenever I click on a download or choose 'save as'. This works... until it doesn't. For no reason and at random times Firefox stops asking me where I want to save downloads. It also doesn't download them automatically. It basically ignores any commands to 'save as' or download files like PDFs. The only thing that fixes the problem is restarting FF.

I'm on the latest macOS with the latest FF version, but this has also occurred on previous versions of FF.

Any suggestions?

I have been a happy Firefox and Thunderbird used for many years, but the constant unnecessary tweaking and fiddling with the GUI has begun to spoil my user experience. Each update seemed to change something that was working fine and didn't need changing... the last straw was making the on-screen font so small that it was nearly impossible to read.

It took me quite a while to find a way to change the font size and appearance back to something usable. That was when I decided to disable automatic updates. Now, every time I open FF or TB I get a nag screen and this is beyond annoying. There does not appear to be any way to stop this happening outside of doing complicated stuff in the registry that I am not prepared to do.

So basically, I am looking for a recommendation on the best alternative browser and mail app that I can use when I delete FF and TB. Chrome seems to work OK for a browser and although I don't like the GUI, Gmail is probably the logical choice as I use Gmail addresses. I don't need apps that work on phones as I work on a PC, so a simple clear GUI is more important to me than all kinds of clever features that I will never use :)

hello, lately i have problems with any kind of VR content with firefox. A-Painter doesnt work and i cant play any VR video

looking a bit around on the internet and trying to change VR related settings in about:config gives me 3 unsatisfying results (trying to play a VR video) : - either nothing happens, the video starts playing normaly in 2d mode and when i press the VR icon the videos pauses but doesnt switch to Vr mode - it starts steamVR for no reasons (which doing the same action didnt start steamvr before, instead the video would just play in VR) but then nothing more happens, juts steamvr is open but the video dont play - i get an error message saying i need a webVr compatible browser

i have tried tweaking nearly every VR releated setting in about:config to a point where i dont remember what all the original configs where but i cant simply reset my prefs.js file as this would mess up every other tweaks i have made in my config. trying to play the same video works just fine in MS edge

no hardware changes have been made to my pc and i didnt install any new addon to firefox. i hadnt used my VR headset for some weeks so i dont know exactly since which firefox update the issue started. Occulus software is up to date as my other drivers (i didnt update any driver lately neither) are actually up to date or the same as they where when everything worked. i have also tried with a fresh FF nightly install without succes (in nightly i didnt change anything in about:config)

I am using Firefox 96.0 running on Ubuntu 20.04. The procedure described on this site to create a desktop shortcut for a website (click on padlock, drag it to the desktop and release) does not work. A grayed image of the URL being dragged moves onto the desktop when dragged, but when the mouse button is released that grayed image springs back to the URL field.

I also tried the alternate procedure i.e. drag a shortcut from the Bookmarks menu onto the desktop. The same failure sequence as described above occurred.

Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi, I've recently noticed that Firefox is not using Intel Graphics for hardware video decoding, here are the specifics:

- I tested this on two separate PC - one laptop with dual GPU (an Intel UHD 630 and NVIDIA GTX 1070) and one desktop with dGPU removed (leaving only an Intel UHD 630 by i7-9700K), on both PC I made sure to run Firefox on Intel GPU only. - According to information I gathered online, Intel UHD 630 should support H264 decoding and VP9 decoding without any problem. - I tested videos from Youtube (VP9, non-HDR video) and Twitch (avc/h264 video) - The exact same video, when played on Microsoft Edge (Chromium), uses Intel's hardware decoder without any problem. - On the dual GPU laptop, when being forced to run on NVIDIA's GPU, Firefox correctly uses the NVDEC decoder without any problem. - Both PC uses the latest Intel driver (30.0.101.1191)

I have attached copies from about:support page below.

In Firefox settings, under General -> Performance section, I have left "Use recommended settings" checkbox on.

Could someone help?

I have been using FF primarily for email accounts recently, but want to go back to using it for general browsing as well. This would mean the ESR version for general surfing, and another version for my email accounts---both versions running 24/7 on my laptop, except for updates.

Does beta still install over the release version? I tried googling this but the results never answered my question---evidently "over" is a very common word in English. :)

Also, does the Beta channel update only some days after FDE? Or does the Beta update channel get the new beta at the same time as the Aurora channel?
