I use DuckDuckGo for my basic search engine on both my laptop (Ubuntu system) and iPhone 8. It does not work today - saying "There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.", needless to say...I have tried a number of times and differed the searches to no avail. I also cleared recent cache/history. Still stuck. Searching on Chrome I see on https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40451490 that others are also experiencing this problem and do not understand it either - just a few entries

The Sun (a rather populist newspaper in UK) has an article saying it is international and happening today, 23 May 2024, suggests no fixes. (Not exactly a reliable source in my thing)

Has anyone ideas or should I just wait and use an alternative search engine meanwhile? Thanks for any help

Hi,

Some websites still managed to smuggle in popups despite all the blockings. I use as add-ons: privacy badger, no-script, ublock origin and recently tried popup blocker (strict) and even have the 'block pop-up windows' enabled. I also tried to fiddle around in ´about:config´ but nothing helps. I think it's a recent occurrence as I don't remember having this problem, let's say, a couple of months ago.

The funny thing is that this problem doesn't occur in opera-browser (in which I hardly use extensions).

The websites that this occurs are: arabicpost.net (a pop-up will occur about 10 sec after right-clicking a new tab). focus.de (a video pop-up will occur if there's a video in it). Again opera-browser blocks all of this. I expect there will be other websites to add in the future.

Please help. S.O.S. -> g.o.i.n.g..i.n.s.a.n.e!

Hello

I want to use extension xpi's from a shared external folder over multiple Linux profiles. So i examined the profile folder and found extensions.json. Though i can't find any documentation to it's keys online.

There's "rootURI:" with a "jar:file://path/to/extension.xpi!/", so i tried just replacing the path with the shared one. Though i observed that just makes firefox replace the path with the current one. So i examined further and found the "location:" key with the default value "app-profile". So my guess is, there's other values for other usecases, right?

So, in summary, what i need is:

  • documentation to extensions.json keys or possible values to "location" key.
  • if that isn't intended/doesn't work, how i can achieve my goal otherwise.

And please don't suggest the sync feature, that doesn't work for my usecase.

I heard that the newest version of Firefox (which I have not upgraded to yet) has a feature that makes it easier to accidentally visit a website whose URL is on the clipboard. I googled to find out how to disable it, and the Featured Snippet said "go to about:config and change clipboard.autocopy to false." Sounded simple, so I did it, but subsequently found out that the article it quotes from is 10 years of age!

My first question, then, is: what does changing "clipboard.autocopy" to false do if it doesn't turn off the brand-new feature?

The second question is, how do I disable the new URL Paste Suggestion feature? Will setting "clipboard.autocopy" disable it? In particular, I want to make sure that the browser does not pre-load or pre-fetch the clipboard URL, and in fact, I wish to pop up a dialog box any time I do "paste and go." People often copy URLs from e-mails to research them before visiting them directly; jumping directly will increase the likelihood of visiting an imposter site.

Firefox Browser 125.0.3, Flatpak Every few minutes, the mouse locks up on Ubuntu 23.10 and it only happens with I have Firefox open. I have have no extension, and history is turned off I have lived with this for months on multiple updates hoping for someone working on Firefox would figure out the issue and fix it.

This issue never happens to me on my windows PCs.

Firefox can take screenshots of pages or screenshots of custom areas of pages.

According to the documentation, when we download the image, the filename should follow the pattern: Screen Shot yyy-mm-dd at hh.mm.ss.png. If I use the :screenshot at the console, the pattern works as documented.

But Firefox is using a different pattern when I choose Take Screenshot from the context menu. The pattern includes the page's title. Example: Screenshot 2024-04-14 at 18-35-16 General ‹ Settings ‹ Geomaster Lda — WordPress.png.

Since the page title can have non common filename characters, I have problems with such filenames. My uploads to MediaWiki fails with such filenames. I know I can report or improve MediaWiki, but my question here is quite simple.

Can I change the Firefox's default pattern for Take Screenshot's downloads?

Hello Good People,

I installed Firefox a few days ago and it was looking good. I don't like that icon in the top-left hand so I right clicked it and removed it. All was good. However, today there is a blank black space in the corner as if the icon was back (but without an actual icon). It's only a small thing but it bugs me. I want the tabs to be shifted all the way over to the left like they have been up to today. It's triggering my OCD. Anyway, any advice appreciated.

Best Wishes

Hello support,

is there any way (other than the one plugin I found that did not work for some reason) to adjust firefox' general brightness (or that of an individual tab) ?

Also changing my monitors brightness would not work for me as I am trying to test a website I develop (using firefox to visualize it) and it is rather just the large difference between my editor (which's brightness you can not adjust) and the browser that is very unpleasent when I switch back and forth (like when trying to fix a bug).

Kindest regards.

How to reproduce the bug: Jump to the address bar, and then press shift, ctrol, alt or windows_start, you can see the address getting deleted. You can also see it in Google Sheets and Microsoft Excel Online, it just deletes the cell, or a selection of multiple cells. --Interestingly on Google Docs it doesn't delete but just move the cursor to the first character when a string is selected.

 It happens only once per mouse click, or focus change

What I expect: Shift, Control or any mod key should not delete content or move a cursor

Thanks!

I saw a message that my Add-ons were disabled, and when I checked the Add-ons Manager , each of my many Add-ons had a message similar to: "1Password – Password Manager could not be verified for use in Firefox and has been disabled. "

Some searches in the forums suggest that that this can be caused my a certificate at Mozilla expiring, I seem to be the only one with this issue at the moment. All of my Add-ons came through the Mozilla store .

I am using version 123.0.1 (64-bit) on OpenSUSE Leap 15.5, and as far as I can see all of my updates are current (and from the official sources.)

What should I do next? I expect I need to wait for a certificate update or something at Mozilla, but if/when that happens how do I verify it did and re-enable my add-ons?

When composing emails in Gmail holding down a (any) key does not activate key repeating.

Also, the there are irregularities when using discover.com in Ver. 124. When editing my customer profile, keystrokes are not recognized. Nothing happens when typing. I also had difficulty signing-in; this may be coincidental.

Things tried: (1) A different keyboard. Same results. (2) Firefox version 122. The key repeat function worked in Gmail. I could edit my profile at discover.com. (3) Uninstalled and reinstalled ver. 124. All problems persisted. (4) Ran Ver. 124 in troubleshooting mode. All problems persisted. (5) Launched newly downloaded versions of both 122 and 124 (from command line) and ran them simultaneously. The problems persisted in 124 (troubleshooting mode), but 122 worked well. I used two different keyboards with no difference noticed. (6) Downloaded and ran Chromium. All worked well.
