I've installed Firefox on my MacBook Air laptop, but every time I turn off my computer, the icon to access Firefox disappears from my shortcuts bar and I have to go back to my downloads folder, double click on the "Firefox 75.0.dmg" file and re-install Firefox. Meanwhile, all my bookmarks on Firefox are lost and have to start everything anew like a new customer each day. My membership email is the only thing that is retained therefore day-to-day. I've checked the settings and have even made Firefox my default browser but that hasn't helped. I should add that I also have Express VPN. When I add Firefox to the ExpressVPN's shortcuts, again it stays there only until I turn off the computer. Meanwhile, Google Chrome and my email icons remain on the VPN startup window and don't go away as does Firefox. Jacob

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.

Since the latest updates, I can't access at least two sites I need to go to daily. (chase.com and constantcontact.com) All other sites open fine and those two open in Chrome. I read that this is a known issue with the update. I don't understand the fixes. I just need things to work!

I have a mac with a free Avaast app running. Not aware of any firewalls.

Error says: "The connection has timed out" in both cases.

Hi Guys and Girls,

For the love of all that is keeping me alive at the moment please help solving the issue of spell checker not working.

I have a new MacBook Pro and setup Firfox by installing it and siging in to sync.

The spell checker does not underline the words as I type here or in Google or WhatsApp Web.

Also when I right click no language opion appears.

I does work in Gmail for some weird reason.

After follwing a suggestion of installing an add-on dictionary and resarting Firefox, no change came about.

See attached for more...

Thanks in advance for your help.

I am unable to move firefox windows between my mac desktops. When I attempt to move a firefox window to a a different desktop I receive a grayed out circle with a line though it and the move will not complete. When I have a firefox window open and move between desktops without selecting the firefox window all open firefox windows come with me and cover whatever was open on that Desktop. My other applications are all moving/not moving as before.

I am using firefox 81.0.1 and Mac OS 10.15.7

Just a suggestion on getting update content information.

I do not enable automatic updates in order to maintain personal update control and to generally wait a few days to allow any bugs in the update to shake out [e.g 81.0.2 to fix the Twitter bug in 81.0.1 -- No biggie, small bugs can crop-up in any update in spite of Mozilla's commendable quality control]. When manually checking Firefox "About" to look at update status, the pop-up shows the current installed version, with a link to "What's new?" [Great idea, thanks]. Unfortunately, there is not a "What's new?" link beside the box to download a new update, thus one must do an on-line search for the related Release Note to determine the urgency/relevancy of doing the update.

Adding an additional "What's new?" would be an appreciated change -- Thanks and be well.

I am NOT asking to remove content from the drop down - already done. I do not want the drop down to open - at all.

On a Mac the drop down interferes with the normal entry user interface. The normal text interface is: type to move to first/last character use the up/down arrow. The dropdown interferes with this standard behavior. The up/down arrow will not move the cursor to the first/last character in the url - until/ or unless the user hits <esc> to close the dropdown.

I have looked at the browser.urlbar preferences and do not see a setting that will change this behavior.

Is there a way to do this, so that url entry is doen entirely in the url bar - and not in the drop down. (and before this is discussed - I do Not want to have Any type ahead/lookup done on the urls entered, and have already disabled all of these options, so there is no need for the dropdown).

Thank you Mac OS X 10.13.6 FF 81.0

Hi – I recently restarted my browser and realized that I couldn't connect to any https sites – each attempt would throw a "the connection was reset" error.

I've changed my network settings from DNS-over-HTTPS to No Proxy and sites are now loading correctly.

I'd certainly like to use DNS-over-HTTPS if possible for the greater security, so I'd like to know what's causing the problem.

a. Is it just because I'm in Canada that DNS-over-HTTPS is throwing these errors? (Note: I was living in the US until recently) b. Are there some other proxy or ISP settings that might be causing the problem? c. Or should I be considering whether my connection has an actual security concern?

Thanks.

I use Firefox as my primary browser on my Mac Book. I have never changed my default browser from Google and if I go into preferences it says my default browser is still Google. Despite this, about 2 weeks ago all my searches started being in Yahoo instead of Google and it is getting really annoying now. I can't change it to any other browsers or back to Google, it's just stuck on Yahoo.

I can't play anything on Bandcamp. I don't know if this is a Firefox problem or an OSX problem or a Bandcamp problem, but hoped it might ring bells with someone here. Been going on for a good couple of months (but I was away for a chunk of that so just getting back to it now). Bandcamp is the best of the streaming services and the fairest to musicians, so it deeply bothers me I can't play anything on it. I just click play, the pending wheel goes round as it fails to play track after track, and then it stops. I had a look on their help but no help there (at the time). I'm running Mojave (OS 10.14.16) on a 2018 mac mini.
