hi! sometimes when trying to visit a site by clicking a google search result link, firefox stops it and shows:

Warning: Potential Security Risk Ahead Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to (website).com. If you visit this site, attackers could try to steal information like your passwords, emails, or credit card details...

So my question is, would attackers be able to steal such information if i never enter any? ie, if i only visit the site to read about things...

thanks for your reply!

Letters (most noticeably x, y, and z) appear to be missing from text in web pages. Running macOS 10.14.6 with Firefox Browser 80.0. Note the image from the drop down menu on this support page. Missing y's, z's, and x is replaced by quotation marks (ie Firefo" Snc).

I have seen this sporadically on a couple of macs that I own. Text seems okay in Safari.

Thank you for your help!

I am restarting FF. I am on 76 and the install is for 77. A window pops up asking for my credentials to install a new helper tool. I don't recall seeing this before and it looks a lot like Oracle's Java installer that tries to install a bunch of crud. In that case cancel continues with the Java install. In this case, Cancel stops the FF upgrade.

What is this tool and why is it not described better to know have a better guess as to whether it is safe to install?

Hi @ all,

our website https://ana-dismissed.de/ is not loading in Firefox, or to be more precise it is loading often but on occasionally not reloading when refreshed. This only happens in Firefox, Safari and other Chrome-based Browsers don't show this, perfectly working there (as far as I could check).

I already checked Firefox developer tools, like console or resource loadings etc. There is no issue I can find. I'm completely lost, no hint at all, why this happens in Firefox only.

Please find a short video here: https://imgur.com/a/31XyiMi

I'm thankful for every hint into the right direction.

Best regards!

Version 76 has serious problems in Mac Mojave and Catalina. I'm thinking of moving to another browser if the problems aren't fixed in a few weeks. In Mac Mojave, the UI sometimes blinks and sometimes becomes black. I had to restart the app but it happened quite frequently. After updating to Catalina, all shortcuts are unusable, most right click menus are blank and even the menu bar is blank. When hovering the mouse over the menu bar, nothing displays, just blank menus. Sometimes, the app starts up with default UI although I customised it a bit. In those cases, I had to close the tab or even restart the app.

I'm getting disappointed and perhaps I'll move to another browser soon.

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

In the library I can select a month to see history entries from that month, but I don't see any way to actually view them chronologically.

The only column with dates is "last visited" which obviously will not result in a chronological view if sorted on.

There's a column called "source date" or something similar, but that column is empty.

I went to "Show All Bookmarks" and searched for a bookmark. I want to know what folder I put the bookmark in. I can't figure out how to do so.

Someone answered this question before:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1274811

"You can open this bookmark in a tab, possible in "Work Offline mode". If you click the highlighted star on the location bar then you can check via the Folder line where in the folder tree this bookmark is located (second down arrow and use the scroll bar)."

How do I get into "Work Offline mode"? Also, why is this so difficult?

I also had a problem on my Mac with Weather Channel and Weather Underground's Wundermap not loading on Firefox.

I launched Firefox in Safe Mode and the maps loaded with no problem. It turns out that the culprit preventing loading in my Firefox browser was the DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials extension. Since disabling it, the maps are back for the first time in at least a year. I had searched for the answer to my issues for that entire period with no luck. Now I don't have to open another browser for a decent weather map.

I hope this will help some of my fellow Firefoxers.

Ever since you last changed Preview, it takes FOREVER for the darn page to load (be seen in Preview) and then FOREVER more to print. Half the time my doc doesn't even show up the first time Preview loads and I have to repeat it. The only work-around I've found is to open my doc in Safari and then print - which is insane. What's wrong with Firefox??

I can't get spellcheck to work. I'm using Firefox on a Mac. This is true even when using a box with multiple lines.

I have ticked the box in preferences that says Check your spelling as you type. I have a language chosen - English (United Kingdom). I tried installing a different dictionary in Add-ons, but it made no difference.

I've gone into about:config and adjusted the settings in layout.spellcheckDefault and checked services.sync.prefs.sync.layout.spellcheckDefault, which made no difference.

I've read posts that say to right click and look at the dictionaries, but this doesn't work for me (could be because I'm using a Mac). Same with pressing Control.

Any thoughts?

I use 3 profiles (work, private and media) side by side. When I open external links I have no control over which profile will open the link. The link is opened right away (so no profile manager interference) in a random profile. I do want it to open right away, but ideally would like to easily set a priority order for profiles to open the external links without having to restart the profiles.

Hi everyone.

I'm experiencing problems with Firefox. It's not loading Google Fonts. I'm on a MacBook Pro 2015, latest Catalina Mac OS, latest Firefox 77.0.1.

My particular problem regards "Amatic SC" Google Font: link text

but not only this one. Other fonts are not loading properly either. Here is a jsfiddle I created with a simple code to test it on other platforms:

link text

I tested it on Firefox on Windows 10, Windows 7 as well as on Chrome, Safari and Opera for Mac. All load and display Amatic SC font properly, but Firefox on a Mac is not doing it.

Instead loading Amaric SC, Firefox is showing default Apple Chancery font.

I tried clearing cache, reinstalling, non of it works.

Please help me to figure this out. Thanks
