If I try to attach or download (only with the Always ask you where to save files option turned on) a file in any website, the browser doesn't open the Files window. Drag and drop works. I am able to choose the download folder from the settings and upload any folder, though.

I'm running Firefox 103.0.1 on Linux Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

Captive portal detection for public Wi-Fi login fails

I'm using Firefox 102 on Ubuntu Mate 20.04 (the vanilla one from apt), but I think I've experienced the same with a couple of previous versions too ...

So, I've sat in one Espresso House in Denmark; tried to connect to their public Wi-Fi with Firefox in private mode, captive portal went fine, and I was on the Internet. Apparently I had gotten a danish IP address there, since google.com thereafter was in danish.

Now, I sit in a different Espresso House, also in Denmark; however, here, captive portal does not work; in the sense that:

As shown on first screenshot, first I get "You must log in to this network before you can access the Internet.", and I get a "Open network login page" button.

I click on the "Open network login page" button, I can see browser wants to load http://detectportal.firefox.com/canonical.html - but in the end, I do not get the Espresso House login page, but instead I get a redirect to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/captive-portal , where the "You must log in to this network before you can access the Internet." still stands, but there is no more "Open network login page" button (as shown on the second screenshot)

If I restart the browser in this shop, I think I get the exactly same process - Espresso House wi-fi login page never gets shown, only the https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/captive-portal ...

Strangely, at this point, I do get access to the internet through a browser - but google.com is then in swedish, which I guess means, that there is some sort of a VPN of that shop's wi-fi to Sweden. On the other hand, I don't get internet elsewhere on my computer - for instance, if I want to do `sudo apt update` from the command line, I get errors like "Clearsigned file isn't valid, got 'NOSPLIT' (does the network require authentication?)" - which is what I otherwise get in (the first mentioned) Espresso House, before I've connected to wi-fi via captive portal (once I connect to wi-fi via captive portal there, `sudo apt update` or any other network access from command line is fine).

(Note: my android phone in the same shop, does indeed show Espresso House Wi-Fi login prompt upon Wi-Fi connection, and I can login there fine).

Why does this happen, and how can I force Firefox to show me the actual captive portal so I can login to Wi-Fi - instead of redirecting me to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/captive-portal ?

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.

I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

HI! I'm using Firefox 98 on Linux Ubuntu 20.04. after the last update I found several settings changed and I had to reset them, but there is one setting I can't manage. In the download preferences I set all the Microsoft Excel entries to "Always ask", but every time that I try to see an Excel file (no download, just open with ...), this is automatically downloaded. I definitively don't want to download it. How can I change this behavior? P.S.: I realized right now that there is the same problem with .docx files and I don't know how many others file types.

On Ubuntu, drag and drop has broken for me. My mouse cursor does not seem to react to different types of content, like hovering over links. My main problem is that if I highlight a piece of text, or some other content block on a page, and drag it, it does not work as smoothly as it should.

Has anyone else experienced this recently?

I find closing Firefox helps temporarily but within 10-15 minutes the same problem occurs.

I have re-installed Firefox and I am running the latest version. I haven't experienced the problem in Safe Mode.

It only occurs on Firefox and is browser-wide.

Hello, Firefox friends!

I'm having some issues with Firefox on my Ubuntu system and I'm really hoping someone can help me fix them.

   Problem with Downloads: When I try to download something and click on a link, a new tab opens. But then it immediately closes and nothing downloads.
   Button Issues: Some buttons within Firefox just don't seem to work.

I've tried a few things already:

   Checked for Firefox and Ubuntu updates
   Ran Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode
   No antivirus because I'm on Ubuntu

If anyone has faced similar issues or knows how to fix this, please help!

Thank you so much!

Firefox worked perfectly, but since a few days I can't download anything. I'm using Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu 22.04, version 110.0.1 (64 bits) canonical-002 - 1.0 With Chrome everything works perfectly so I assume it's a problem from Firefox.

When I open a PDF, a MP3 or any file, the "save" option doesn't display anything. Usually it opened a dialog where I could choose the folder where I wanted to download the file, but now I have nothing.

I have only 4 extensions: - adblocker ultimate - duckduckgo privacy essentials - vuejs dev tools - zotero connector

I always had them and I never encountered any problem.

Firefox will no longer display the main window. I get an icon in my taskbar but the window is nowhere to be found. I've tried the tricks of maximizing it and moving it but neither works. I have found that if I locate the xulstore.json file it will work but only for a short time. Next time I start Firefox I get an icon but no window. Very frustrating!

The sulstore.json file contains nothing that suspicious:

``` {"chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml":{"main-window":{"screenX":"2129","screenY":"777","width":"1280","height":"1040","sizemode":"maximized"},"sidebar-box":{"sidebarcommand":"","style":""},"sidebar-title":{"value":""}}} ```

If I start Firefox and right-click the icon, select maximize it's as if it's maximized covering all my windows but yet invisible. I can see my other windows but I cannot interact with them.

Deleting the xulstore.json file often fixes this but it breaks again shortly. What's the deal???

Using either the SNAP or .deb versions of Firefox on Ubuntu 22.04 I am running into issues attaching files on remote systems. I can browse to mounted network drives and select files but when clicking open nothing is attached in any of my online email accounts. This also applies to the open dialog box. I have tried using the KDE File Picker as well as the GTK one but they both fail. This is not an issue for LibreOffice or other programs and greatly impacts the usefulness of Firefox.

When browning some site will cause a Firefox to freeze, all UI stops working, if I try and reload the page nothing will load and if I try and close and reopen Firefox I get a zombie process that last for about a minute. Obviously this is with no ad dons or hardware acceleration and nothing is listed at about:crashes. The only useful tip I have comes from the command prompt. First when the freeze is first triggered I get the errors ``` MESA: error: Failed to query drm device. libEGL warning: egl: failed to create dri2 screen MESA: error: Failed to query drm device. libEGL warning: egl: failed to create dri2 screen ``` and when I try and open it after a freeze and there is still a zombie Processes ``` [Parent 111218, IPC I/O Parent] WARNING: process 111455 exited on signal 15: file /build/firefox-RH6krf/firefox-115.0+build2/ipc/chromium/src/base/process_util_posix.cc:264

``` and finally when it kills the zombie processes ``` RunWatchdog: Mainthread nested event loops during hang:

--- CanvasManagerParent::Shutdown

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 111871 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ``` the included images are what pops up when trying to open Firefox when it still has a zombie processes and when it kills the process

Summary: Firefox fails to load many sites, and some will kill the entire browser.

I recently updated from Ubuntu 22.10 to 23.04, which included an upgrade to Firefox. I originally had trouble with tab/window dragging operations causing the entire desktop to crash.

Removing the snap and installing from the Firefox maintained PPA fixed this issue, but a number of others remain. (Detail on this part over here on the ubuntu forums if interested)

Now many google sites simply show the loading error for ever and never recover. Some URLS can kill the browser completely. For example, this one from the Mozilla website: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-show-spinning-wheel-never-finish-load The error message is attached.

I am happy to perform more tests and provide more diagnostic if it will help. That same URL works fine from the chromium browser on the same desktop systems,as does every other site I've had issues with.

I use Firefox on Ubuntu 22.04, and my system has 16GB RAM. I have been facing this problem of frequent crashes for the past few months. By crash, I mean not Firefox alone, but the entire system. I use several apps and run several processes that require great compute resources, often simultaneously. I have narrowed the cause of frequent system crashes to Firefox alone; the system rarely crashes when I use other resource-heavy apps. Due to this, I have to restart my system several times a day.

Before this problem arose, I would use multiple tabs (including YouTube, often 10+, close to 20) and multiple windows (2+). Such usage very rarely caused crashes, which is why it is surprising that Firefox now causes the entire system to simply hang sometimes with as low as 3-4 tabs.

I have disabled Hardware Acceleration, refreshed Firefox, even tried disabling WebGL. I also tested it after removing all add-ons, but it still didn't help (I use only 2 add-ons: a simple wide-spectrum ad-blocker and an EPUB reader). Even in troubleshoot mode, Firefox will cause my system to heat up, although it takes some more effort to crash in this case. I use one of the standard themes, so it could not have been the problem.

Many people report Firefox crashes, but in my case, Firefox causes my entire system to crash. How do I fix this issue? Thank you in advance.
