Hi, I'm wanting to upgrade my Mac OS. Will all my Firefox data be retained including my saved sessions? Will opening Firefox have everything just like it was before the update, so that the last current session will open up with all the previously open tabs?

Hi, firefox browser (using it on a macbook, the version is up to date) will no longer load the css/js on a site that i use frequently. It's not a problem on the side of the site, as it works fine on chrome and safari (and even on my mobile ios firefox browser). After troubleshooting a bit (deleting and redownloading the browser/removing all addons/ensuring that the page style isn't set to 'no style'/deleting the cache/adding it as an exception to enhanced tracking protection/enabling 'security.enterprise_roots.enabled to true in advanced configuration), and exploring help articles of a similar nature, I've determined that it most likely won't load the stylesheet because the site has an unsecured connection. This is a site that I use frequently and I trust enough to continue using with an unsecure connection, but I've been unable to get Firefox to recognize it as an exception in a way that will allow me to use the site in its full capacity.

I put my applications in SubFolders inside Applications folder. Firefox was in one of them. Each time I quit it, my preferences settings were lost, and I had to reconnect to my Firefox account. Since I put Firefox in Applications folder (not in a subfolder) it works. I think it should work even in a subfolder.

One of my computers a Mid 2014 MacBook Pro laptop runs Safari fine with MAcOS 10.15.6 , but since the update will no longer connect to Firefox or Chrome browsers.

A newer desktop iMac 2019 has completed the Update and has no problems running the most uptodate versions of Safari 13.1.2, Firefox 79.0 , or Chrome ( 84.0.4147.135 ). I tried re-installing the Firefox and Chrome programs , but no success.

Any suggestions on how to correct. Browser connectivity problem. (My network settings are identical on both computers )

My 2 extensions are installed and running, so not sure why they don't show "up top"

Any help greatly appreciated.

I understand that I should disable color management, but I have no idea how or where? (I am not a computer wizz, rather a dummy, so no complicated solutions please.)

I'm using Firefox as my browser, on a desktop Mac (OS). Please write out any possible solutions to my problem with as much detail as possible, step-by-step. (I'm recovering from a concussion, and at least for now, I need instructions to be very detailed. Thanks.)

I did a Refresh. (I've never done a Refresh before.) In the past, my tabs would be automatically restored if I quit and then re-opened Firefox. I assumed this would happen after the Refresh. My tabs did not get restored, and Restore Previous Session (in History) is greyed out. Same when I click on the button that looks like three horizontal lines, at the top right-hand corner of the menu bar. When I went to the Restore Tabs page that comes up when you re-open Firefox, the box that usually shows the tabs from the previous session was empty.

Please can someone help me get back the tabs I had just prior to doing the Refresh.

It does not matter how many times I change this setting in preferences to "Open in Firefox" I still get this pop-up every time I click a pdf.

It also does not matter how many times I select "open with preview" and click "Do this automatically for files..." box. Every time I click the next pdf the same thing pops up!?!?!?!

And additionally no matter my selection I make ends up leading to a pdf being downloaded automatically.

This is beyond frustrating. Please help.

Whenever I visit a website with embedded Instagram images, the images never show and I have to click on the link to view them. This doesn't happen in other browsers (Safari, Chrome) for the same sites. I've turned off all add-ons (Clear Cache, Adblock Plus) and I'm signed into IG, but I still can't see the images. Are there other settings I need to change? Specific site: https://www.refinery29.com/en-us/2020/08/9987841/fall-haircut-trends-2020 and I've added a screenshot.

I have gone and checked what people say and looked at what they want me to do and nothing is fixing it. It's not my account I can work with it on my phone but through firefox on my mac nothing. I had the problem before and it disappeared after a week but now it's getting longer than that and it's annoying. I don't know what to do.
