  • New Version Version from today has the same problem in firefox as

    Firefox 83
    Rankmath just updated 1 hour ago
    Wordpress 5.6

    Disabling the RankMath Gutenberg sidebar with this hook at my theme functions.php now doesn’t work

     * Disable Gutenberg Sidebar Integration
    add_filter( 'rank_math/gutenberg/enabled', '__return_false' );

    still appears in the sidebar and still not working in Firefox

    Guys, what a mess. I’m sorry but I was going to buy the plugin but now I will think It twice.

    The New Update have NO results. RM doesnt work with cache cleared and remove transient.

    RankMath : Who test your Update ??

    All reviews so far have been so enthusiastic about Rank Math. Faster, better, more features…. this is now very sobering.

    I am really surprising why there is no official feedback vom RM about the bug. The changelog says: No known major issue. Really? The hotfix from doesn’t work. There is still the bug with firefox!

    As Andy wrote: who from RM has really tested the updates?

    Maybe Firefox’s India is different ? (-_-)

    Hello @info4134

    Can you please check on your website?

    Do check in an incognito window.

    We have added a small fix related to Firefox and will be adding that in an upcoming update.

    The issue is still happening in Firefox.

    For everyone else, you can use the following files:

    Clear the cache and then test.

    If you do not want to update manually, please wait for our upcoming update.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    I tested the manually download. It still says same Version but i overwride old one and it seems the manually download version fixes the firefox problem for me. Can anyone else confirm? Than I can mark topic as resolved 🙂

    I can confirm the manual download fix is working on the Mac side of things on WP 5.6 using Safari or Chrome (I don’t use Firefox).

    But YOU MUST clear your browser cache for the fix to work after install.


    Yes, the version number is not bumped and the caches will be cleared automatically once the update is released.

    Glad it fixed the issue.

    Please manually upload these files to fix the issue for now and then clear your browser’s cache:

    Thank you for your patience and understanding. Thank you.


    We have fixed the issue now and you can update to the version of Rank Math to fix the problem on Firefox and other browsers.

    If you do need an update immediately, please click this button:
    check for updates

    After you update, please perform a hard refresh of the cache with your website open in your browser tab/window:
    Windows: Ctrl + F5
    Mac/Apple: Apple + R or command + R
    Linux: F5

    Hope that helps and we are so sorry for this issue once again and know it has caused a lot of disruption in your workflow.

    Thank you and we are here if you need our help with anything else.
