The items in Firefox/Services menu disappeared after I restart my iMac, but not in every browser tab. For example, they are there and working correctly if the browser display the Help/Troubleshooting page (I'm not sure the name is the correct one, I have a localized version in Italian: "Aiuto/Risoluzione dei problemi").

If I actuate Firefox's refresh function, Services work properly until I close and reopen Firefox.

I tried to run Firefox with the option "-NSDebugServices com.apple.mail" getting the following messages:

Mail/New Email With Selection (com.apple.mail) is enabled in the services menu and disabled in the context menu, by the standard Services policy.
Mail/New Email To Address (com.apple.mail) is enabled in the services menu and disabled in the context menu, by the standard Services policy.

Please, do you have any idea how to fix my installation?

iMac Retina 5K Late 2015 - OS X 10.11.6 - Firefox 50.0.2

After the Firefox 50.1 release updated "The song remains the same"... Services menu works in Firefox maintenace pages but:it doesn't work in any other page

Furthermore in other programs, where the Services menu works well, Internet related item like "Search with DuckDuckGo" opens Safari instead of my default browser Firefox (look at the icon near the menu text in the upper picture).

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it does sound like a Firefox issue to me. – Rob Dec 11 '16 at 9:17
  • Have you reinstalled Firefox? – IconDaemon Dec 11 '16 at 21:19
  • I got an updated release of Firefox and reinstalled it. Now is 50.1.0 Firefox version, but the issue is the same. – Marcello Dec 14 '16 at 17:04
  • @Rob: yes, I call Apple Support and they confirm is a Firefox issue. Furthermore she said that her Mac was behaving in the same way. – Marcello Dec 16 '16 at 15:21
  • I no longer believe that it is a matter of Mozilla, but Apple's support and its user community think different, so I don't know how to resolve my question – Marcello Dec 22 '16 at 17:46

Mac services are only enabled if some text is selected.

Selecting text in Google Docs in Firefox (DE 63) does not enable any whereas selecting text in other pages (including your example, about:services) does.

There may be something broken in how the current selection is communicated to the Services menu.
