Hello everyone,

I had Firefox Sync. on an old computer and I removed this computer from the devices synchronized around early September 2018. Is there a way to know the exact date when I've removed this synchronization ? It would help me a lot to know that.

Also, is there a way to know from which device bookmarks/history/preferences have been added/modified. I'd like to show that all the bookmarks I've added to my account have been added from my current device.

Thanks a lot for your precious help, Best regards, Quentin

COPY PASTE not working with Avast web sheild turned on and using the browser Firefox.

My OS is Catalina. Currently 10.15.6 My Firefox is 79.0 My Avast is 14.5 with only the 3 most fundamental core shields (email. web. and file)

Copy and paste is broken within Firefox when you have the Avast Web Shield enabled. While its enabled, other browsers do not have the same issue. Copy and paste in Safari and Chrome works fine. If you turn off the web sheild in Avast you must close and re-open the Firefox Browser and the issue is gone.

The Firefox reset/refresh that i tried, based on another post, only really disables the web shield for a small time, when avast refreshes it puts it back. So its not fixing the issue, its temporarily disabling it.

Its rather aggravating. Anyone solved it? Im posting on both FF and Avast forums.

Very strange behavior... when I switch from my primary user profile on my mac over to my work one (while leaving the primary one, and Firefox, open), my Firefox tabs start closing in my primary profile in the background, one by one.

And it's directly correlated to amount of time spent in the work profile... if I switch over to the work profile, then switch back a few minutes later, all FF tabs are still there. But if I remain in the work profile for 20+ minutes then switch back, a few tabs will have closed. If I'm in the work profile for hours, when I switch back 10 or 15 tabs will have closed.

I know it's not an add-on issue, because I've tested it while in Safe Mode, and it still happens. I don't even know how to begin troubleshooting this. Anyone have any ideas?

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.

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?

I'm on a Mac, and Safari is my default browser. But for a few years, I've used Firefox several times a week as needed. When I'm not using Firefox, I typically quit it.

For the last 2-3 days, Firefox has started launching spontaneously. I'll be doing something else on my computer, and suddenly Firefox appears in my dock (but it doesn't come to the forefront). The first time I saw this, I quit it immediately, but it immediately restarted. After 3 or 4 tries, it stayed quit. But a few hours later, it launched spontaneously again, and this has now happened half a dozen times.

I've run two anti-malware scans (by two, different developers), and both came up squeaky clean. I do have Firefox set to auto-update, but I've never seen this behavior before. In the past, updates were performed in the background, then when I launched Firefox, I'd be notified that it had been updated.

This auto-launch behavior is disturbing. Does anyone have any idea what's going on?

I'm running macOS Catalina 10.15.6.

Is there still no solution to this? Other than to start using all the wacky alternative bookmark folders? Which I assume would mean no longer being able to use the bookmarks toolbar because all your bookmarks would be in these other folders instead. I can't even find any extensions/addons that will fix this.

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.
