Using Mac OS 10.14.6. Firefox updated 4/11 with #112. Cannot log into a site which I previous had no problems with. Message from the site states password not recognized. Cleared cookies, history, and cache. This occurs on both Mac computers. Safari works fine. I don't know if it's the site or latest update.

I do not want Firefox to allow: automatically install; check for: or use a background service for updates and i hate annoying pop ups telling me about updates ≈ every week.

It also generates warnings from all my cites with new logins etc

I don't need to be up to date on all decimals! Please allow also a less annoying schedule as every major update or every 5th or 10th update like 120, 130 etc

please do it! I otherwise I like your work! Kind regards Anders

Using the native Mac spell checker in Firefox

Apple's built in spell checker on the Mac is unparalleled. Not only does it integrate with the native dictionary, it also automatically detects and switches languages as you type. Right-clicking on an unfamiliar word brings up the "look up" option which fins the word in the dictionary. It's furthermore smart enough to detect misspelled words which are correct words in another language. I don't know how apple achieved this, it's remarkable.

Anyway, Firefox displaces this functionality on the mac with their own dictionary, which although good, is not as good as the native spell checking and dictionary.

Is there a way to enable the native dictionary for Firefox on the Mac?

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

Using online recommendations I was able to force the general theme to white, however individual segments of the FF UI still retain black (see the images). I want to whiten them too. I saw a heap of color related settings in about:config. I set one of them, layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override, to 1 but that had no effect on the appearance of the said elements.

Hello, some years ago I found how to prevent FF to ask for the master password too often. Obviously, this setting involved the about:config editing. Now, I'd like to reduce this time because I'm requested for the master password only at FF launching and I cannot find the options I changed. I looked for options with the word "expire", but it doesn't seem to affect the situation. What was the option I changed? Or what is it now (in case latest FF versions have different options)? Thanks

Hi there,

I've got plenty of bookmarks organized in folders and sub-folders (never could wrap my head around using tags). Normally, hovering on top of a folder or sub-folder just opens it. However for some unknown reason, some folders just don't open on hovering. By contrast, opening the "Manage bookmarks" pane shows all bookmarks are there and functional. The issue only appears in the menus, and I'm not sure when it appeared exactly.

Already tried: Renaming faulty folders: no effect Moving bookmarks into a newly created folder: no effect Moving faulty folders into an already-working folder: works, except if the folder is the one containing the root menu.

Screenshots: A working sub-menu: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-01-10-56-24-be01e3.png

Back when I used Chrome, there used to be an option when you could right-click a word and get an option in the context menu to "look up". In Firefox this doesn't seem to be the case. Is there a way to enable this? For those of you who don't know what feature I'm talking about, here's Apple's write up: https://support.apple.com/guide/mac-help/look-up-words-mchl3983326c/10.14/mac/10.14

Each attempt to log in to my bank account, using Firefox browser straight up, results in an access denied refusal. If I go to Duckduckgo.com and search for my bank, I can access the bank account. I wonder if you have other complaints/comments to that effect, too. It is an aggravation and my bank, Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU), did not have a solution but suggested I contact Firefox direct.

Here is a copied response, as an example:

"Access Denied

You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/nfcu.fcc" on this server.

Update your information about Proton Mail from Canton, Geneva. It was Protonmail.com. It has been changed to proton.me, so my email address is [edited] @proton.me, [edited] @pm.me, or [edited] @pm.me. I like this company because my email is encrypted from the moment it leaves my computer until it reaches its destination. My problem is that you are telling me that my email address, [edited] @proton.me is not valid. It most certainly is valid and it works in my email. But signing into Firefox I was told my email isn't valid, and there's nothing but (hopefully) talking with you about it that could change your program's mind. Please update your program, because very soon protonmail.com won't get my email to me. The company has changed its name and how it does business. And I love Firefox because it is much safer and more secure than Gmail was -- they just pulled my account one day along with my contact list. At the time I was president of our community's Arts and Crafts Club with 170 members. It was very hard to write that month's newsletter. Please fix my problem.

Sincerely,

Simone Meeker [removed PO box information from public] [edited] @pm.me, [edited]@pm.me, [edited] @proton.me.
