Thanks in advance!

Since I've upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 "Firefox" randomly started closing it's self without any crash report what so ever.

I've read some article on Ubuntu forums but I couldn't find any helpful information (Or they didn't work for me)

Please anyone help! I've been using Firefox all the time and has never crashed until the upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04

Any help is highly appreciated!

Good afternoon. I just made a clean install of Ubuntu 22.04 in my system. I use Firefox, to navigate, study and download diverse things, including work files. When I tried to download those files in my google drive, it shows me the folder which I will use, everything right, but when I hit "Save", nothing happens. Do you know which is the problem? I can access drive from "files" from Ubuntu without problem, upload and download files... Thanks in advance.

For some reason, whenever I load a pdf from within Firefox, I get a new tab with the regular toolbar displayed on top of pdf files, but the document itself is completely blank (see attached screenshot). This issue just started today and I assume it was a result of an update, since I don't recall making any changes to my settings (I'm using Firefox 101.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04).

I've tried opening multiple files from a variety of sites with the same result. All of them open fine using my system's pdf viewer, as well as from within Chromium. I've tried disabling my plugins, putting Firefox into safe mode and resetting all the handlers, to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated.

Starting today, with firefox 102 (on Ubuntu 20.04), I cannot open a url using the address bar. If I enter a url and then hit Enter, it brings up my selected search engine looking for that url, not opening the url itself. This has not happened before today. Is there a way to use the address bar only for opening addresses, and use the search bar for searching?

Years ago I imported a Firefox profile from Ubuntu 16.04 to a PC running 18.04. It wasn't very hard. View Hidden Folders, find the old FF profile, copy it. Then go to the 18.04 PC, delete or rename the existing profile, and paste in the profile from the 16.04 rig. Restart the PC, Firefox came up on the 18.04 PC just like it did on the 26.04 PC.

But Ubuntu is doing something different now. Firefox is inside the "snap" folder. Apparently snap is some sort of new package mgr. (?)

I found a firefox profile a few levels down inside the snap folder: Home/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/xxxxxxxx.default

Does snap complicate things? Or can I replace the new profile on the 22.04 PC inside the snap folder with the profile that I want to use from the 18.04 PC? Just like in the past, but inside snap rather than the .firefox folder in Home?

I had a version of firefox working. The world was sweet.

One day (1 July or there about) things changed and firefox was basically useless. When I load it, all logins are forgotten and I have to log in again. (Painful, and another thread)

That aside: The "new" version was 102.0 This was applied to my machine without me knowing. (This also happened on another machine I have but luckily it didn't suffer the same problem.) But anyway...

The machine now has 102.0 installed.

The other day while trying to find what is "broken" in it, I am told there is an update and it told me I had 13 days to do it.... Or something like that. Alas I've deleted the screen shot as I need to keep the bin less full to help me if I accidentally delete something I shouldn't.

So now I have 102.0.1

So I'm confused: What is the mechanics of rolling out updates? An update I didn't want (beside the point) but none the less broke firefox was done without my knowledge, and yet another one which was throwing up messages at me when I loaded firefox doesn't?

I don't really know what either update did.

When I want to drag and drop a tab into a folder of the bookmark toolbars, I can't do it for some folders.

Specifically, it doesn't work for folders that are somewhat in the area of the tab preview animation that pops up when I start dragging the tab. So that is not the same folders every time, it depends on the tab location in the tab bar.

I hope that the explanation was clear enough, I did a screen record also, made it available here https://ufile.io/pikit6xo (335 kB).

Do someone had a similar issue and found a solution?

I'm in troubleshooting mode. Firefox 100, just updated, but bug was there before. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Firefox is unable to load module

I've been trying to setup a smartcard reading device, and I've gotten stuck twice on the same place.

When it comes to configuring the Security Device on Firefox, I can't access the .so file. Firefox merely shows the error "Alert: Unable to add module", but I've noticed that when I try to browse my files manually, trying to access the /usr directory returns an error (sometimes, I seem to not be able to get it consistently).

It also happens that the software I installed for the digital certificate tried to open an html with Firefox, which is located in /usr/share/, and Firefox doesn't seem to be able to load that either. It returns a "Can't open file".

Steps followed

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Settings → Privacy and Security → Security Devices → Load
  3. Insert path /usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so and try to load (yes, I've checked that the file does actually exist)
  4. Receive Alert: Unable to add module error

Relevant information

   Ubuntu 22.04
   I'm on the latest snap version of Firefox: 100.0.1-1

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 there,

I'm using my PC for local web development. I use Firefox as my regular browser and recently, in order to distinguish between personal time and development time, I've established a new profile just for development purposes.

The local website I can't reach is "site.local.dev". My OS is Ubuntu 20.04 and that URL points to a local IP on my network (resolved via /etc/hosts file on my PC).

Funny thing is that: - In dev-profile: site.local.dev does not work => "Unable to connect" and the URL bar shows https://site.local.dev even if I force it to http:// - In personal-profile: site.local.dev does work :P

I have tried with CLI tools like "wget", "hosts", "ping", "telnet" and so on and the site loads ok. Even I have used Dillo (damn simple web browser) and the site loads ok also.

Things I've tried so far: - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can - Suggestions at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1011327 (similar issue, not exactly the same).

It must be a silly thing but I'm out of options now. Perhaps anybody has faced to this situation in the past: any suggestion on this issue?.

Thanks in advance, Ibon.

Hi - I'm signed into firefox sync on two different computers, both running Ubuntu 20.04. I can tell that they're connected to the same account because I can see the other computer in the list for "Send tab to device".

However, the bookmarks aren't syncing - one computer has the full set, the other (newly set up) computer still has the default bookmarks.

When I check `about:sync-log`, I see these lines:

``` 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of prefs - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of passwords - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of tabs - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of bookmarks - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of addons - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of forms - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of history - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping check of extension-storage - disabled via preferences 1654551773179 Sync.Doctor INFO Skipping validation: no engines qualify 1654551773179 Sync.Status DEBUG Status.sync: success.sync => success.sync 1654551773179 Sync.Status DEBUG Status.service: success.status_ok => success.status_ok 1654551773180 Sync.Synchronizer INFO Sync completed at 2022-06-06 14:42:53 after 1.48 secs. ```

That is, it seems to think that bookmark syncing is disabled - however, I have bookmark syncing enabled, as you can see in the attached screenshot.
