I'm using Firefox on a Mac with the built-in screen reader Voice Over. When I need to log in to a web page, with a User Name & password stored in Apple's Key Chain utility, I typically press Command-Shift-A & the User name & Password fields are automatically populated. Unfortunately, with my new installation of Firefox, I've found that the key combination in question is used to launch the "Add Ons" window. Is there a work-around for this? The Command-Shift-A is the only way that a blind user can populate those fields from Key Chain. The buttons, usually visible in or around those fields for a sighted user are inaccessible.

Thanks so much,

CJ

Hello Sir/Madam In my mobile phone wireshark intercept I have found weird network connections.

The firefox incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org is send/receive large packets of data to 34.120.208.123 ip address. The service contile.services.mozilla.com send/receive data to 34.117.237.239 ip address. Do these ip address belong to firefox ? Can you share the range of ip address used by Firefox?

I have attached PCAPdroid image of my mobile while using Firefox. Please response to this message soon. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Prasad.

Since the last Firefox update, my logins are no longer saved from one session to the next...and neither are my devices, even when I specifically give the site permission to save the current device. I have to log in to most sites (email, bill pay, etc.) every single time, and in most cases the site insists on sending me a text or an email to verify it's me. This is entirely new behavior since the last update, and I can't figure out how to get around it. Suggestions??

I'm porting a chrome extension to firefox: it clearly loads on the page as I see some of it working. But other things are not happening. There are no errors in either the page or the background page. So I wanted to set a breakpoint in my content page, and I followed the instruction on this page: https://extensionworkshop.com/documentation/develop/debugging/#debugging-content-scripts Which clearly shows extensions icons in the Sources/Main Thread.

But for me, there are none. The first screenshot is from the page where the extension is loaded no extension is listed, the second is from the background page for the temporary extension.

Like the title states, every time I open Firefox the application freezes for about thirty seconds to a minute at a time. This is highly inconvenient and annoying. I've reset Firefox completely and the issue was not fixed, as well as doing a clean install. Because of how often and consistent the problem has been, I've had trouble finding out the source of this issue. This has been an issue for at minimum a month, most likely longer but my first mention of it to one of my friends was a month ago.

This folder for me just redirects bookmarks to the main bookmarks manager directory. It serves no purpose and I can't even remove it. It's an eyesore that I want to eliminate completely, not just from the toolbar as you can see I already did, but in general as a whole!

Firefox very slow, hangs or not responding on Windows 10 after last update late November 2022 to version ? 107.0.1. I am an end user, not versed in IT. I have used Firefox as a fast and safe browser for approximately 20 years and with Adblock Plus for over 10 years. Previously once I refreshed or reloaded Firefox it wiped out my navigation bar and bookmarks. Some friends have said that this is a tactic to encourage change to the for-profit paid version. Also when this happens I get a window for reporting the problem to Microsoft which hangs indefinitely and I have to close it. Again is this a tactic from Microsoft to get me to select Edge and Bing as my default browser and search engine? Or is this a problem with Norton360 software or their VPN? Or is this due to a failing hard drive (not SSD), registry errors or malaware? What's up and is there a simple fix?

I am on Firefox version 102. It assures me I am up to date. My credit union insists I must be on version 107 to log in. I was able to download and install version 107, but it gives me a different icon and none of my bookmarks are there. It is like I installed it new rather than upgraded. I have no bookmarks, setting, etc.

Examining pages with Firefox developer tool indicates some type of standards problem with the offending objects. Problem is wide spread with Firefox. Chrome and Edge display same pages ok.

Hello, I somewhat recently noticed (maybe about a month ago) that my overflow menu disappeared and an "Extensions" menu appeared in its place.

I've already created a new profile and switched to it, with no success and I'm not sure what else to try or why it went away to begin with (and why this Extensions menu is now here and won't go away).

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Hi, I'm having this annoying problem for several weeks now. I guess since the last update.

While browsing and searching online with google I normally open links in new tabs, and maintain many tabs open from session to session. After a few minutes FireFox stops loading the URL links. It opens a new tab but the page doesn't load. If I type a new address in the address bar of an existing page, the page blinks momentarily but it returns to the old page content. This happens with any link in the search page, or in any previously opened pages that I try to change to a different URL. The only way to fix it is closing and reopening FireFox. Then all the links and open tabs respond normally again, until it happens again. The time when the problem happens can be a couple of minutes or after hours.

I upgraded to Firefox 107.0 (64 bit). Now it won't access my e-mail account. When I try to add my account, it recognizes it, but says I can't add it because it because "in-coming server already exists." But it doesn't show up; I only see "local folders". iMac from 2009 running 10.13. If the latest Thunderbird doesn't work on this antique, can I un-install it?
