2 weeks into my new MAC mini (my first MAC ever so I'm still learning!)...and Firefox worked perfectly until today. Now it freezes on the initial screen every time I run it. The only time I solved it was rebooting the machine...which worked...once. It locked up the very next time. Reloading Firefox doesn't fix it. Just a reboot.

Most of the answers I saw said Version 84.0.2 was the fix for that...but that's what I'm running. Any further suggestions? With my rookie status on the MAC. it could well be operator error. Thanks everyone!

I started work this morning and noticed that Firefox was not opening my homepage. I tried a range of urls but none are opening. Both Chrome and Edge are working as expected (I'm on windows 10 ) I have just downloaded and installed the latest version of FF from the website, cleared the cache and cookies but none of these work.

I would first like to know how and why this could happen to a browser - whose ONLY purpose is to display websites.

I do not want to have to expert all my bookmarks and set up a working environment in another browser.

I have looked online and tried all the "solutions" - to no avail.

Let's discuss what could cause this as so far there is no solution.

When I select a text on a webpage and right click, there are some options including add-on related ones (e.g. translate this text). However, when I select a text in the address bar my add-on options doesn't appear. Is it possible to use my add-ons on address bar selections? Or is it that my add-ons lack this feature?

All was good until sometime today. FF 84.0.2 W10 up to date. Previously, when browsing FB marketplace, i could send a message about an item for sale. That send message button is now greyed out. The messenger button on the top right of my screen used to open a dropdown/popup that gave me a summary of my messages. That no longer works. I have been thru all kinds of settings randomly on FF and FB to try and correct the issue but i cannot figure out what is going on. I have tried turning Ublock on and off but that has not helped either. The only access i now have to messenger is to open it separately. I have not changed any FB settings. I did not change any FF settings myself other than trying to find out what could be doing this and exploring ublock for possibilities as that seemed the most likely culprit. Can anyone shed some light on what the issue is.

Hello, evereone!

My win-application (1)compose an local-html-template, (2)call to open it with a Firefox as a "text editor" for some changes and getting final local-html-documents and (3)needs to save changed local-html-document automatically under application control.

Like model works good with any text-editor like notepad, OpenOffice etc. The application retains control of the text-editor until the text-editor closes (with or without saving document).

However, in the case of the Firefox, the application loses control of the Firefox as soon as the page is opened. And the application does not have information about the shutdown of the Firefox.

The question is: Is there an Firefox-option that allows you to keep control of the application over the Firefox during open Firefox or tab-session?

Thank you so much for any hint, Denis Lopatin

Hello,

I have some trouble adding an e-mail address to the monitor service. It seems that the e-mail bounce back. My e-mail provider is asking me if I can provided them with the e-mail sent by firefox, and the received answer, so they could check what is causing it. How could I get those information?

I am running an iMAC 27 using mac OS X Catalina (10.15.7) When I select Print from the Hamburger drop-down (or by any other method -- I prefer MD + P) I get the familiar printer box but there seems to be NO WAY to see the thumbnail of the page or pages to be printed. For me this is votal because I often print selected pages from a large document or web view.

I am attaching a screen shot of what I get with FIREFOX.

Is this a systemic fault with Firefox or am I just in the dark?

Since the last Firefox update, 84.0.2, I lose my menu bar. Ever since I started using Firefox in Windows, I have the menu bar active. This bar is very useful to me. Now with the new update, it is gone whenever I start Firefox new. I have tried resizing Firefox for Windows using the opposite arrows but the menu bar will not come back. I right click on the tabs bar and it show the menu bar checked. I can shut Firefox down and restart with the menu bar showing. This only happens on any new start of Firefox. Is there any way to prevent Firefox from not displaying my menu bar? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you. rcarrow53

My problem is that I must have accidentally dragged a folder from bookmarks to the bookmarks menu bar. It can't be deleted (option grayed out), can't view properties (grayed out) and even when I attempt to to restore bookmarks from an earlier date it does not correct the issue.

I have restarted the computer.

I have restored bookmarks after deleting them all.

I have attempted to backup bookmarks (before trying to remove them) and no matter what that folder won't budge from the right side of my bookmark menu. I can make it disappear by turning off bookmark menu but that's not useful to me. (Did you know that when you back up bookmarks - firefox puts them into a json extension! Try to restore that file - it's NOT even an option! Rather the options are import from this browser or that one - that's another issue all together so let's set it aside for another time.)

I am totally frustrated because I am almost 100% certain that this done by me in my speedy way, trying to drag a bookmark to the folder rather than hitting the star and putting it in the appropriate folder.

The only thing I haven't done is uninstall this firefox and reinstall it. I am a bit scared to do that. I have been a firefox user early on. How do I save these bookmarks without creating the same issue again? I don't want to go through the entire ordeal only to find out something is corrupted in my profile. What then.

Ideas would be help me a great deal. Please be patient. I am used to doing things on my own but I can follow directions. The only problem I have is that pesky file that won't be dragged, or deleted, or moved in any fashion. Is there a bookmark cloud on mozilla where I can just reinstall my bookmarks, passwords and add-ons without a lot of hassle? I sincerely have done all I know how to do.

Thanks for your help.

Every time I install an update my Amazon password no longer works. And, I mean every time. This has been going on for the last 6-12 updates and I am forced to go into my Amazon account from another browser and change my password. I know the password being used in FF is correct because I use LastPass. This doesn't happen with any other browser. I've loved FF for years but this is totally unacceptable and I'm starting to like Edge. Any suggestions.
