I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

At first, it was only occasionally. Now Firefox freezes every time I try to upload a photo, and it is a big problem for me! It does it in Facebook, Messenger and even Kijiji. I need to fix this!

Can anyone help? I've reported this to Mozilla more times than I can count.

I have an iMac running El Capitan.

I received a data breach alert from Firefox saying my email address & password had exposed on a particular site, and to change my password for that site. But I do not have an account with the stated site. I have visited it but never opened an account or logged in to it. What action do I now take or should I just ignore this alert and mark it as "resolved" ?

Hi


When I try to log in to online banking, I usually have to enter an ID, password, then some memorable information. Since some point in the last 3 weeks, Firefox won't proceed past the page with memorable information. It takes me back to the first page where ID is entered, as I've been automatically redirected there. So, logging in is not possible. Initially I thought that this was a Mac issue and not a Firefox issue, because it was actually affecting both my browsers, Firefox and Safari. However, after rebooting my wireless connection, the issue seems to be resolved on Safari (although that program is an old version). I tried clearing the cookies and the cache, then reopening Firefox afresh. The problem persisted.

Version of Firefox is 78.1.0esr (64-bit). Have already tried updating to the latest version.

Regards Matt

I want to transfer the profile from an old PC running Windows 7 to a new PC running Windows 10. I've copied the old profile to a USB stick. After much searching I've found the profile created by the new installation, but it seems to appear in two folders: AppData/Roaming/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles, and AppData/Local/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles. Should I simply substitute the old profile for both instances of the new profile? NB This message is posted from a different platform (Mac) Thanks

Strange thing happend today. I opened firefox and found myself with my preset fonts resetted. Never ever have I encountered this in around 20 years of using the browser.

Even worse than the unsollicited reset, I went to Settings > Fonts and Colors to get the fonts back to my preference and I was confronted with my fonts no longer showing up in the list. Yet they are there in my Windows 10 list.. as well as all other browsers I tried to find out what on earth has happened.

I vaguely remember that one or two days ago firefox had updated. Not sure what was updated or whether it doesn't even have to anything to do with that but some obscure settings I accidentally turned on or of I have no idea. I cant find similar problem posted by someoen online either.

For about a month I'm unable to log into my Yahoo Mail account from Firefox on my Mac. All the proper screens appear and I fill them in, but when I hit "login" Firefox hangs. I see the circle thingy rotating indefinitely.

I know this is a Firefox issue because I can access my mail from another browser (e.g. Safari). I think it also relates specifically to Macs because I've never had this issue on my PC.

Firefox is the latest version (78.2.0esr (64-bit)). The Mac is a Mac Pro Mid-2012 running Yosemite 10.10.5.

Thank you!

Hello. I'm using a brand-new installation of Firefox 78.0.1 on a freshly installed copy of Windows 10 Pro. The only way I can get Firefox to display any notifications is by having alerts.useSystemBackend set to true. While this is set to false, notifications will not work. If I use this site to test them, it just says, 'queued for display', followed immediately by 'closed'. I've also tried creating a new profile and testing it again with no success. All sites were granted notification permissions in each case.

Thanks for any help.

When I try to close a tab, if I place my cursor over the X icon and click, nothing happens. If I carefully hover the tip of my cursor over the very bottom of the (invisible) box around the X, the box will turn darker grey and I can finally click and close the tab. I'd estimate the grey box around the X is 1cmx1cm, but only the bottom 1-2mm elicit a response.

I have restarted Firefox and my computer. My browser version is up to date. I am not using any extensions. I am on a 2009 Mac running Yosemite.

I am in Windows 7, 64-bit. All of a sudden all of my Firefox logins and passwords are missing. I read several threads about this, which told me to check the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop for the logins.json file. However, the only information in that folder is from 2018, two full years ago. Where did my logins and passwords from yesterday go?

Also, I just updated to version 80.0.1, hoping to get my passwords and logins back, but they are sill missing. The problem just occurred today, before I updated from version 79-something.

Thank you for any help you can give. This is extremely upsetting.

Then yesterday this started again and happens every time. Can access from Safari.
