Hi all:

If a paste a URL and press enter, sometimes the Enter key does nothing. I have to choose option "Paste and Go" instead. It is annoying.

This does not happen always, only sometimes. I haven't been able to reproduce it on demand.

I am using Ubuntu MATE 22.04.3 . I have been using Firefox for many years, and I have never had this issue until many months ago, when it started.

The theme is "Light" from Mozilla.

The only extension I have installed is uBlock Origin.

I have seen other users complaining about a similar problem, like for example:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1208635

Therefore, I am guessing that something is iffy in this area. Is there anything I could do to pin-point this issue? For example, I could enable some option to increase console output.

Thanks in advance,

 rdiez

Firefox crashes whenever I use ctrl v or right click, and pulls up a window that it crashed. Whenever I start it back up, it says it wasn't able to restore session, then restores it anyway after I press to restore it. Another thing is whenever I try and upload a file onto a site it crashes as well. I'm on Mac OS x 13 and reinstalling firefox hasn't fixed it. This is relatively sudden, it happened about around 3 days ago for the first time, and at the same time I noticed it happening certain sites also started giving me '502 Bad Gateway' errors. Does anyone know what's happening and how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

To log into my mortgage lender's site I have to enter my email address. Beside this field is the Facebook container symbol; mousing over it warns me that if I enter my email here, Facebook can track me. Mortgage Lender used to allow me to log in with a user name, but now requires my email address, which apparently gives Facebook access to track me. Tried speaking to the lender about this, but they simply assert there are no Facebook trackers on their site. So, any workaround for this besides just doing all my business with them by phone from now on?

I am using FF 115.7.0 on a Mac. I normally use tabs but when I need a new window, it opens with every one of my bookmarks in a tab. I can open a subject in a new window from an article in a tab from a different window but I just can't open an empty window without getting all of my bookmarks opened in (many!) separate tabs.

Thanks for any help.

Hello. It seems that Google has created a way of "dealing with" Firefox's automatic removal of the page seeking one's acceptance or rejection of cookies. Each time I refresh the page, the accept/reject cookies pop-up briefly flicks on-screen but then disappears and one is back at the consent page:

https://consent.google.com/m?continue=https://maps.google.com/maps&gl=GB&m=0&pc=m&uxe=eomtm&cm=2&hl=en&src=1

So as things are, I cannot access the consent page to either reject or accept the cookies, and therefore I cannot get past the consent page and into googlemaps.

Google may be aware of Firefox's way of "dealing with" the consent page and has found a way of making it impossible for people to proceed to use of the googlemaps website.

Using v115.7 in debian 12.

I prefer to open pdf files with the default viewer in the operating system, not on a firefox browser tab. I have gone into settings->general->applications and configured selected "Use system default application" for PDF files. If I click on a pdf file it downloads to my Downloads folder, which is the usual and preferred behaviour. If I click the downloaded files icon on firefox's toolbar, I see the file I downloaded, all good. If I open the folder with all downloaded files, and click on the file, it opens in the OS's default viewer, all good. On the other hand, if I click on the downloaded files icon on firefox's toolbar and simply select the downloaded file from the displayed list, it opens on a firefox browser tab. This is driving me bananas. How do I configure firefox to launch the default system application instead?

When I clicked troubleshooting mode FF unexpectedly closed my Private browsing session and all the tabs. How do I reopen them?

I did not expect FF to close on me like that. I thought that as I was in a private browsing session FF would have warned me that it was about to close had it been necessary.

I'm guessing that my open tabs have been lost permanently because you didn't warn me and that all that time I spent is now wasted.

Life is really simple except that other people make it problematic.
