Firefox Kiosk does not appear when I log in but does when I start it manually from the GNOME x-terminal

I have Ubuntu 22.04 (on a Dell Optiplex 3000) with a minimal installation. I downloaded Firefox 125, removed the SNAP Firefox and installed this Firefox with no issue. I can run "firefox --kiosk" and Firefox runs in kiosk mode with no issue.

I have made some changes in the "about:config" part of Firefox. I have also made some changes to the Ubuntu keyboard shortcut list. There is only one user created on this system and I have configured Ubuntu to login this user automatically upon reboot.

However, if I setup Firefox --kiosk to start automatically (I use the gnome-session-properties application to achieve this) and then reboot, Firefox does run, but it does not appear on the screen. If I enter the "switch windows" keyboard shortcut (ALT-TAB), the Firefox kiosk appears.

So, is this something I can fix by changing the Firefox configuration, or is it an Ubuntu configuration change. If so, can anyone tell me what I should do, or have an idea how to debug this?

Over the years I have accumulated important links in my Firefox Bookmarks bar and passwords file and it would be a disaster if for some reason my hard drive got compromised and I could no longer access them. Is there any way to copy the data to another set-up, independent of my laptop, from where the data could be retrieved in a usable form for display on another laptop or PC? Thanks.

At some point every night, my Firefox (and only Firefox) reverts to version 111 from the latest version. This happens on 2 different Windows 11 machines.

I can only get Firefox to run again by running from command prompt with "-allow-downgrade" option and then updating again.

I usually don't notice until I launch Firefox the following morning and it gives me a message that the profile was created with an older version and to exit or create a new profile.

I've had Firefox open and then it reverts and it gives me a XULRunner error about the profile being used by an older version.

I don't have any special backup or restore software running and the physical files in my Firefox folder in c:\program files\mozilla firefox are being physically pushed to a prior version dated 3/21/2023.

On both machines, I've completely uninstalled and reinstalled and it's good for a day and then reverts.

No log entries for the reversion can be found. It's just back to a prior version.

I've never come across anything like this before and have scanned for any malware or other issue, but haven't found anything.

Hello, trying to verify the integrity of firefox-118.0.1.tar.bz2 I realized the GPG key has changed.

The following blog post details the change and shows the new key: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2023/05/11/updated-gpg-key-for-signing-firefox-releases/

But when I download the key using the link provided (which points to keys.openpgp.org) the key I get is different from the key posted on the Mozilla blog page.

What is even more strange, is that the key from keys.openpgp.org declares in the comment that 14F2 6682 D091 6CDD 81E3 7B6D 61B7 B526 D98F 0353 is the fingerprint of the key (the same that is posted on the Mozilla blog) but it can't be because the key different.

So my questions: 1) Why Mozilla is posting a link to a key that is different? 2) Why keys.openpgp.org shows the correct fingerprint with a different key?

And, in the end, which key should I trust and why.

Thanks.

I will be moving all of my data to a new laptop and want to know if I need to have both my personal Firefox profile and the "default-release" profile backed up. The "default" one is over 3GB and has over 20k files in it, and my personal one is only 113 MB with 1300 files — and my thumb drive needs all the extra space it can get. (Why would the "default-release" profile be so much larger than my personal one?)

The old laptop runs on Windows and the new one will have the Linux OS. Will that make a difference in using a backed up Firefox profile? I mean, will the data still work in the new OS?

New computer, new install, when trying to log in to my account to set up sync/migrate, Firefox claims the password is incorrect ... the same password I just used on this (old) computer to log in and ask this question!

I've had issues with this before, when I synced up my phone. Took several attempts to log it in.

Also, tried changing password, but for some reason it won't accept a new one? (That's different issue. Would prefer to log in with current password. at least)

Thanks!

Hello.

Lately i found strange bug in FF 119.0 (ppa - deb, not snap version), ubuntu 23.10 I can't download any file to mounted ntfs volume. Firefox instead creates thousands of empty files. Once it was 10001 or 10003 other time it was 20000 of files. I tried private-window, no change. I have removed all add-ons - no change.

For example i was trying to download https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/stable-virtio/virtio-win.iso and i ended with (only few last lines):

-rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9989.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9990.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9991.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9992.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9993.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9994.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9995.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9996.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9997.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9998.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-999.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-99.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest-9.exe -rwxrwxrwx 1 root root 0 2023-10-27 22:23 spice-guest-tools-latest.exe
