Crash at startup if Firefox not properly quit before shutdown Debian Buster

Hello,

One of my last Crash ID report : 49e3c347-5deb-4659-b9d1-281b00200514

I experiment this problem on two of my computers. Both are running Debian Buster. If I don't forget to quit Firefox before shutting down my computer, then I believe I won't have problem the next time I switch on my computer and launch Firefox.

However, as most of the time, if I shutdown my computer with Firefox still being open, it seems that Debian Buster doesn't close properly Firefox. In fact, if Firefox was still open when I switch off my computer, I can be sure (100% of the time) that at the next startup, Firefox won't be able to launch the previous session and I'll have to "restore my last tabs".

No other software seem to suffer from the way Debian Buster switch off. Only Firefox.

Thank you for any help one could give me,

Regards, Thatoo

I apologize if this has already been brought up.

It seems that the browser has access to a list of my media devices, without needing any special permissions. On Am I Unique, they can grab the unique ID of my builtin macbook camera & microphone. I believe the culprit is MediaDevices.enumerateDevices(). I do have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to True.

Perhaps you could put it behind a permission request, like MediaDevices.getUserMedia()?

Thank you for your time.

I recently switched to Firefox, it has a good at performance. Though, When I check My browser for Fingerprinting through https://panopticlick.eff.org/ , https://amiunique.org/ and https://www.deviceinfo.me/ It shows that my Firefox has Unique Fingerprint besides Firefox Strict Tracking Protection enabled.

How can I protect from Browser Fingerprinting or delete it ?

after system update on macbook pro (os 10.15.4) the firefox icon disappeared on the dock requiring me to sign in again with a change in password after which I discovered that all previous bookmarks were GONE! I do have the browser installed on a desktop which seems to have retained my old bookmarks. Any suggestions on retrieving previous bookmarks links and their associated login/passwords , or transferring my bookmarks from desktop to my macbook?

I am using Opensuse 15.0 and also 15.1. Haven't made a complete move over yet. There is a recurring situation when 4GB rx and 4GB tx movement that I cannot account for hits my 15.0 about once a month. Today it happened again. Using vnstat, I found it happened between 10.00 - 11.00. :

Searched the cookies, one site i cannot recognize came out; "consensu.org". Did a search, there were several, example: https://cmp.teads.mgr.consensu.org/index.html, that served blank pages in firefox. Is there anything odd here? Is there a way I can extract all the cookies with date & time so that I can check against previous occurrences of the 4GB data movements (I have a few records).

Unlike some people who don't want to see the extension name in the address bar, I want to see the *entire* extension name. Threat model: one of my extensions gets a rogue update and puts up a screen that looks just like a screen (e.g., the login page) of another extension (e.g., my password manager).

When the extension name is too long, Firefox currently displays: Extension... <last word of extension name>

To be secure I currently need to click on the above so that it expands, in order to verify it's the correct extension.

Can this be done in CSS, or would a feature change be needed to Firefox?

Hi Team,

We are facing issue while exporting documents from our portal which is embedded into an iframe of some external portal.

We see the following error in the console :

Content Security Policy: The page’s settings blocked the loading of a resource at blob:https://abc.def.com/1gg3810-ae25-42ae-ghghb-123456789 (“frame-src”).

This issue comes only in firefox. We are able to export documents in other browsers. We think that the problem comes due to the portal is embedded into an iframe. when we execute the download URL in a separate tab, it allows to download the document.

We are using below CSP policy :

default-src * blob: 'self' 'unsafe-eval' 'unsafe-inline'; font-src * data:; img-src * data:; frame-src * blob: data: 'self'; object-src *

Thanks

Hi guys,

So, a while ago, I followed a privacy guide to make firefox even more private. But since I followed that, everytime I open firefox, it opens small, and not maximized. Also every time I closed it, it logs me out of all my accounts.

This are the things I changed: link text


I hope anyone can help me,

Kind regards,

Have been using a script (.uc.js) in my profile/chrome folder to enable new-tab homepages via local files. After updating firefox ( 68.0b6, but I believe it appeared on b5) this functionality is gone. Instead it simply loads about:blank, seemingly showing that the script is not running at all.

Edit: upon further searching this seems to be to a change in Firefox 68 as a whole. Is there absolutely any way to regain this functionality?

I have 2 add ons installed-adblock plus and Roboform. Both show in add ons and show no error. I can disable or remove them. I can re-download and add them without error. But-neither show the icon on top, nor do they work. This does not appear to be the issue that occurred on 4 May. I'm stumped. When I check browser integration in Roboform, there are none listed, meaning that Roboform has not been integrated with FF, but add ons in FF show that it is and it is enabled. Nothing to check on add block plus, but there is no icon, so it is not doing anything. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

since v67 firefox uses separate profiles for stable, beta and nightly builds. that's a huge step in the right direction. running versions side-by-side was mentioned in a nightly blog post: https://blog.nightly.mozilla.org/2019/01/14/moving-to-a-profile-per-install-architecture/ KB-document: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/dedicated-profiles-firefox-installation

But how would I run stable and beta side-by-side?

Problems I am facing:

- both stable and beta released versions are called "Firefox.app" on macOS. So I can't have both in the programs folder

- If I rename Firefox.app (beta) to Firefox_beta.app macOS complains that signatures for that app are invalid (which is expected, so that's not a solution)

It would be awesome to run those versions in parallel. But how would that be done?

When I click on non-secure link in secure page in a frame it won't open the URL unless I open it in a new tab. If I change the non-secure link to a secure link in a secure page in a frame I can open the URL in the page. If I open the page with no frame I can open the non-secure link in the secure page. It seems to be the frame is stopping the non-secure link opening.

I have used 1Password/Firefox for years. With this version of Firefox, I cannot add its extension the normal way even though 1PW shows in add-ons and the icon is in the menu bar. When 1PW is invoked, I get a window opening and a message asking me to add 1PW extension to Firefox. I select Firefox but the Firefox accept dialog never appears. I am using Firefox V 68 beta 10. Any suggestions are appreciated.
