Hello,

after an update up to Firefox 89.0 (64bit) on my elementaryOS 5.1.7 (based on Ubuntu 18.04) I've got a grey-colored rectangle in the upper part of my window that overlays all elements of websites (cf. attached screenshot), however I still could pass via hyperlinks if there are any under the rectangle. It is very light grey in light mode and dark grey in dark mode.

I've tried following steps according to possible solutions found in the Internet : - launch Firefox in safe mode (the rectangle disappears) - make sure the default theme is used - turn on/off the hardware acceleration - update or disable and delete all add-ons and plug-ins (rectangle still present in normal mode) - delete and reinstall Firefox with wiping all its files on the local machine (including /home/user/.mozilla and /etc/firefox* folders) - delete again and install the flatpak version


Nothing of the above helps except of the safe mode. As I have tried already to delete add-ons and plug-ins, what else can I disable to try to solve the issue in normal mode ?

I would appreciate your help as this is the only browser that I (want to) use on a daily basis. Thanks in advance!

[firefox 89] Can't enable Legacy OpenGL compositor

I use this workaround to fix tearing on my mediacenter powered by a intel baytrail hardware.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Firefox/Tweaks#Enable_Legacy_OpenGL_compositor

until v88, it was working fine.

With v89, the setting layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true has no effect. The "about:support" page reports Compositing: webrender (software) whatever the value true or false.

I had to downgrade to v88.

After auto update to FF 89.0, access to long-time Fidelity account is intermittently blocked as a security warning, or causes DSL line to drop at submission of account security code, or displays account entry page as plain text, not std HTML formatting, or most often results in a technical error page saying try again later. MS EDGE works fine, no issues. This is the only webpage this occurs on. Fidelity has no FF reported issues on their end nor does my IP supplier. Using desktop PC, running Win10/64-bit, DSL line @ ~ 2.3 Mbps. Using the "Light Theme" which was auto set with 89.0. This plus the new bastardized menus will push me to drop FF since I can't afford endless hours to fix basic functionality with ea update.

Greetings from Earth. My Firefox bookmarks in my Dell PC are suddenly altered in that many of the contents of folders (that had been alphabetized by me as I added to them over the years) are now mixed and random-- no longer in A-Z order. I woke up the other day to find this surprise. Is there a simple way to rectify this problem that doesn't involve me rearranging them one by one to their former order, or will I just have to live with the bookmarks in this new way? I did nothing unusual on the PC or with bookmarks to cause any changes. Thanks in advance for help and/or advice; it's appreciated. A fussy Gen X guy is obliged.

No matter how I close the program, it always opens like the attached screenshot. Even more annoying, I can't click the maximize button, but I have to drag it down a bit, THEN click it.

I tried turning off FingerPrint, and it was already disabled.

No change. I exported my bookmarks to my hard drive, and uninstalled Firefox. I downloaded a fresh install of Firefox, and installed it. ALL MY BOOKMARKS AND SETTINGS ARE STILL THERE!! Still won't allow me to clear History. Whatever happened, happened less than 24 hours ago, going by the websites showing in Recent History. Can you advise me?

So I mainly use firefox and it had been working perfectly for as long as Ive had my laptop. However, recently this issue has come up, that random pages often (around 70-80% of the time) do not open on the first try. Firefox tries to load it for 5-8 seconds and then gives me the server not found error. However, if I click on the refresh button a couple of times it then successfully loads the webpage. This has been happening for 2-3 days now and is really annoying and hard to work around.

It shouldn't be my wifi since my other laptop does not have this issue. I have refreshed/reset firefox to no avail. I use kaspersky security, but it has had no issues so far and I have not done any changes to settings or anything like that. I thought maybe its a firewall issue but I had not tinkered with any of those settings either. Lastly, I also play online shooters and have so far not noticed any lag during games, making me think its a browser issue.

Within the last few weeks I have had some random BSOD occurrences while using Firefox. I used Nirsoft's BlueScreenView utility to inspect the minidump files. It showed the culprit was: nvlddmkm.sys - Nvidia windows kernel mode driver version 465.89.

The system is Windows 7 64-bit, graphics card is Nvidia GeForce GTX960 driver version 27.21.14.6589. I have used this system and Firefox for several years and never had a BSOD until lately. Disabling hardware acceleration seems to resolve the issue so far.

Are there any changes in Firefox 88 and 89 that could cause this? I have noticed other recent reports of the same problem.

Hello,

my problem is even if I saved my password, firefox doesn't autofill it and just prompt "show the saved IDs". It's only when I click on the message and it opens Firefox lockwise that the password I am waiting for appears on the website. It is quite convenient and makes me lose time as it happens on a website I use for work.

Thanks a lot for your help and sorry for the poor english

I would like to get an actual answer to an archived question that I didn't find very useful. This is the one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1301997 . I have also attached an image of a reply to this question that I relate to a lot, but unfortunately it didn't get an answer. So, I would like to ask the same question as this guy asked: For privacy reasons, I would like to hide the notification bar that pops-up in front of all windows, showing the video's title and thumbnail, but not the function for Control Media Playback. Is it possible?

If you couldn't understand the question, I'll explain again. So I attached another image (the second one) for demonstration. This shows this pop-up that is hard to name, so I'll call it a pop-up;

I would like to hide the video title and thumbnail from this pop-up just for privacy reasons. I don't think this is currently possible because the only configuration I could find was "media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled", but if I disable it it would remove the function completely.

I always used the original Firefox search as my home page; one simple little panel in the middle of the page with a quick and easy search feature. I loved it. The latest version of Firefox has ruined it. Now we are forced to search from the address bar. I hate, loathe, and despise doing a search from the address bar. It is an A-1 nightmare. After you type one letter, it stops registering what you type and throws up a ridiculously long list of the web pages you've visited. Type another letter, and you have to go through this mess again. It makes for an absurdly slow search and never actually gets you to what you're searching for. I wound up with search results that weren't even related to each other much less related to what I was searching for. After one day of use, I'm so frustrated with this feature that I'm opening Google to do the search.

How do we reset this new version of Firefox to only search from the Firefox homepage search box and not go anywhere near that address bar? Or do I have to uninstall the latest update to get Firefox to function properly again? Even if it's an add-on that forces the search to where it belongs...anything!
