I am using a Samsung Chromebook Pro V2, running Debian, and installed Firefox using the Flatpak command "flatpak install flathub org.mozilla.firefox". The Firefox icon appears in the Linux apps group and I have opened Firefox using that icon.

How do I get links in my Linux apps to open Firefox and take me to the URL?

Thank you and Happy New Year, Abe

I see where other people have posed this question but the procedure offered is not available to me.

I am using Firefox (Flatpak) version 121.0 on an Ubuntu 22.04 laptop.

On installing a new extension I should either see the extension's icon on my toolbar or else have a clear means of adding it. I have neither.

Clicking on the jigsaw icon in the toolbar, I get migrated to the about:addons page. On clicking the Extensions tab, I get the screen listing all installed extensions. Each extension has a ... icon beside it. But when I click on this, there is no "Pin To Toolbar" option.

What is wrong here ?

I am having a hard time getting accustomed to the Firefox scrolling experience. I am only using the touch pad and the touch screen. When I release the finger the time it takes for the scroll speed to come to a halt is way longer than on Chromium browsers and uncomfortable. I want to configure this to decelerate faster or to remove the smoothing completely.

I have tried playing around with scroll configurations and I found that setting apz.gtk.kinetic_scroll.enabled =false disables smoothing correctly, but only works for touch pad, not for touch screen.

- Is there some config I am missing to disable this kinetic scroll using touch screen? - Is there a preference where I can halve the time it takes to decelerate, rather than disable it completely?

I am running Ubuntu 22.04 on Wayland if that makes a difference.

Hello all, first time poster here but long time FF user!

Lately, some of IMDB's functionality is broken for me. I can give many examples of odd behaviors but to keep this short, have pasted 2 screenshots of the same section of the homepage (www.imdb.com) to demonstrate the difference. Something is preventing the proper loading of all the elements.

Another odd thing is that i'm unable to click on elements that have properly loaded and are visible. Lastly, i'm unable to play videos!!

None of the above are reproducable when in private browsing mode. I have disabled all my extension in the hopes that one of them could be the culprit to no avail!

Any thoughts on how to approach this issue?

When I click on a Firefox menu (File, Edit, View, etc.) or the hamburger menu, or a drop-down menu on a web page, the menu appears. Then, when I move the mouse to hover over the menu, the menu vanishes. If, instead, I hold down the mouse button, I can move over the menu without it disappearing.

I'm using a focus-follows-mouse window manager (VTWM) and I think, somehow, Firefox is getting a focus change message when the mouse moves onto the menu. I think this because of the way the Firefox titlebar flickers from showing it's the active window to the inactive window, then active again, once the menu disappears.

Please advise.

Thanks, Richard

Since about 13:00 GMT yesterday, Firefox could not load or display the Hostinger h-panel. It sometimes partially and sometimes completely displays all the page content. But all the controls are dead. Firefox seems to be very busy doing something. I told Hostinger and they spent some time looking into the problem. They got Firefox to load the h-panel but said that it was vastly slower than other browsers in doing so. With me, Firefox still stops doing anything once the content is loaded and ALL controls on the page are still dead. When closing Firefox in this state, there is considerable delay before the window actually closes.

I thought that perhaps Hostinger had done an update that called in some proprietary JavaScript extensions that Firefox couldn't handle. I get the impression that in trying to display the h-panel pages, Firefox is trying to acquire some content from an external site, as requested somewhere within the HTML/JavaScript source code.

Any ideas? robert_john.morton@yahoo.com

Sheesh, I tried to append to another question but failed. Just as well... I am using a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS. Every time I put my laptop in standby mode (close the display) then reopen the Firefox window expands beyond the left edge of the computer. I tried some solutions offered on the forum but they did not help. Now when this happens I hit the maximize button and the Firefox display actually shrinks to a small size. That's counterintuitive but... When I hit the maximize button again the Firefox window expands to the correct size. So it's now only a minor annoyance. It seems like there ought to be a simple solution to this but I haven't found it yet.

How to save images to the downloads directory (that I chose in settings) without using right click -> save image as .. -> popup window .. then choose the location where I want to save it.

I tried alt+click, it didn't work, it saves the webpage url instead of the image. I prefer a solution that does not involve any add-ons.

Hello,

I am using the Flatpak Version of Firefox on Manjaro Linux. I have hardware accelerated video playback on Youtube for VP9 but not for H.264 on YouTube and Twitch. I can verify that with intel_gpu_top. My hardware should be capable to do hardware decode. You can see in the provided screenshots, that it should work from the configuration standpoint. Do I missing something here or is this maybe a bug? I can provide any further information if needed.

So I was sent a picture in .heic format. Trying to open it FF entered an endless loop opening new tabs with names like: "/tmp/pid-949/IMG_9409.heic". There was no easy way to stop it, the 'X' button did nothing. It opened hundreds of tabs. I had to kill all my tabs to get rid of them. BTW there's supposed to be a 'Recover Previous Session' button in the main menu. Not there. On line, I see several different images of what my main menu is supposed to look like but mine is nothing like that. I have 115.6.0esr (64-bit).

OS: Linux Mint 21 Browser: Firefox 121.0

There are a few sites I frequently use that popup windows that can't be blocked or moved out of its lower right position. It most cases it blocks important text due to the screen/font scaling I have to use.

My browser privacy settings are set to "Strict".

Autoplay setting is: "Default for all websites: = Block all Websites"

The popup window banner reads "Trending Videos". No video or audio plays and the window is black with the error msg: Sorry, the video player failed to load.(Error Code: 104153)

There is an "X" button on the right hand side of the banner that does go into focus when I hover the cursor over it, but clicking on it does nothing.

I have tried various popup blocking addons but so far none have been able to stop these popup windows.

Suggestions please!

Hi everyone.

I recently had to shut down my Linux machine with several Firefox tabs and windows open.

When the system came back up, I was unable to launch Firefox. When I tried, I received:

$ firefox

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /snap/firefox/2391/usr/lib/firefox/libmozgtk.so: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

I'm running on Kubuntu.


Also, when I downloaded the portable version if Firefox (which ran) my profile was gone. None of my tabs, etc. When I ran the profile manager, the only other profile that was present was ancient!

So, I'd like to:

1. Fix Firefox so that the native version runs. 2. Recover my old tabs, windows and extensions.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Mike.

Using Firefox to access TDeasyweb banking appears to work thought the login process, however accessing anything on the web site causes the web site to put me back to the login screen. I am running Ubuntu 22 on a desktop and a laptop with Firefox 121 64bit. I have contacted TD regarding this and the solution suggested was to use a difference browser or disable all the extensions and try again. Does anybody know a REAL fix for this?The problem seems to be fixed if the "delete Cookies" extension is disabled

In the about:profiles page I can see that the Root Directory for my current profile is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 When I click the Open Directory button it does nothing. When I manually navigate to /home/username/.mozilla/firefox I can see that there is no folder there called no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978

The Local Directory is show as: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/cache/mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 This exits and opens with the Open Directory button.

If I search for no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 in the file manager, I see that there are two folders with this name, on at the Local Directory path shown above and the other at: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox My assumption is that this is actually the Local Folder (it contains files with today's date)

My question is, why does about:profiles show the wrong path for the Local Directory or why is the actual Local Directory in the wrong place (it appears that the path shown in about:profiles is the normal default location)?

I tried creating a new profile and it was created in exactly the same way: the Local directory path is: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox but about:profiles says it is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox

I would rather have my profile in the normal default location but I want to ensure that I don't leave pointers to the wrong location that could cause problems.

I am running Firefox 121.0 (64-bit) from flathub on Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm).

Any help appreciated.

I have just encountered another of Mozilla's unwanted, unneeded changes.The three simple little characters that almost all programs show in the upper right hand corner on the screen. These are long standing and well understood icons that were easy to use to manage your windows. Need to switch between program windows? Press the - key. Need to enlarge the screen to its fullest, press the open box, finished working with this program/screen, just click the x-box. Pressing the "open box" would adjust the screen so you could use the cursor to make the screen the siz you needed.

It's not just that these features work and are understood, Mozilla makes changes with no explanation, no other options for doing the same thing (exception: I can close the window with File> Exit (or Close)

I just spent a week getting Thunderbird115+ to "work" and now I have to figure out how to recreate what I've lost on Firefox? Like other people seeking support have said, I want the Firefox I know back.
