I am using linux kde neon on wayland. Firefox version 90. On ubuntu with gnome 40, my touchpad zoom works. I didn't have any problems on kubuntu either. But on Kde neon, gestures don't work. I forced the MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND = 1 setting to enable wayland support. About: support shows that wayland is supported by the browser. Also I tried the settings MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 = 1 and GTK_USE_PORTAL = 1, but they didn't help either. Gestures in the system itself work.

Firefox fails to resolve local/VPN DNS

I am using Firefox on Linux (Ubuntu 20.10) to work from home over OpenVPN. Recently the VPN configuration was changed to use split tunneling to improve our internet connection. Since then I have had several DNS resolving issues in Firefox.

We use an on premise DNS server as an alternative to `localhost` domain names so we can access other developers' environments and so a few services can do the same. Our URL structure is like projectname.[optional personal identifier.]localhost.[type].nl. Without the [optional personal identifier], or when nothing is configured for it, the ip address is 127.0.0.1.

In Linux' OpenVPN configuration I have "Use this connection only for resource on its network" enabled for IPv4 and IPv6 is disabled (to benefit from split tunneling). With that enabled Firefox usually fails to resolve such development hostnames.

- As far as I know I do not have DoH enabled (and the about:networking log further down tells so too). - I do have `dnsmasq` enabled (with configuration for the above domain formats to route to 127.0.0.1 also) in an attempt to fix some issues before the split tunneling was configured correctly. And in an attempt to try and get Firefox to handle these DNS resolving issues. - `dig` on the command line for the same domain works just fine. - Adding hostnames to /etc/hosts works. But that's becoming a chore, working on dozens of projects over months.

Why is Firefox failing to resolve such domain names? Should I just create a Bugzilla issue?

I created a log with about:networking set to `timestamp,nsHostResolver:5`:

Since my firefox browser updated yesterday with the July 19, 2021 update, some web pages are not displaying properly. For example, I use Yahoo mail, and when I click on an email, most of the content is not showing, including the sender's message. Other frequently used websites are similarly affected.

This same problem occurred after another recent firefox update, and it was eventually fixed when I "checked for updates".

I'm hoping this bug is widespread enough that the Mozilla team will be providing a further update that fixes this.

Meanwhile, if anyone has an idea, I'll listen!

Since a couple of weeks my Firefox browser for Windows 10 64bit has issues. Last update 90.0.2 did not work either,and the issues is still there.

Internet is extremly slow,some sites will not open and i cant logg in to Facebook.

Under settings,i have tried different settings. Right now i have the standard setting. Under Help,i have tried to restore,diagnos and clean catch and restart,but it has not solved the issue.

What could be causing these issues? Do i have to do some special settings or do i have to add some Add-ons/Extensions in order to have Firefox work normal again?

For the last couple of months I've been having an issue with Firefox freezing when I bring up a news article on Yahoo. It only happens when there is a video attached to the article, the video and the text of the article won't load. After a few minutes there is a message saying "This page is slowing down Firefox. To speed up your browser, stop this page". All of the Yahoo news articles work fine when I bring them up in Chrome. How can this be fixed??

Hi.

I'm a long time firefox user. The past few years, I have not been able to copy text from print preview. This is important to me, as I run a small business and need to copy order numbers from the print preview screen to keep my work flow going. I can do this in chrome, but cannot in firefox.

It is nothing I can copy from a website, as it is a link I click to open the invoice.

The only work around that I know of would be to print the pdf to a file, open the file, and copy it from there - but this is not acceptable because it is too time consuming.

If anyone has something that will work, it would be much appreciated.

My situation is probably unique but basically, I have a new computer. On my old computer I had a fair few windows open. Because of a lot of different issues (bad battery, no working charger etc.), I have access to the hard drive of my old computer but I can't turn it on anymore and it died before I could reopen most of the windows on my new computer. I'm able to use the hard drive as an external hard drive to transfer everything to the new computer as needed So, I know it's possible to get back bookmarks by transferring the files. I also know that there is a recovery file somewhere in the firefox folder which is used when hitting "Restore previous session" to get back the previous windows Would that mean it's possible to find the file from the old computer's hard drive and move it to the same folder on the new computer to use for the restore function in a similar was as the bookmarks?

About a month ago, Firefox stopped loading web pages on my Windows 10 Lenovo Flex 14-IWL computer. The UI loads without any issues. However, no pages can be loaded, including Firefox's own pages like "about:preferences" or "about:performance." I completely removed all traces of Firefox from the computer twice (using Revo Uninstaller's advanced mode), but the problem remained after each reinstallation attempt. On the second of those reinstall attempts, I checked the Console after trying to load one of those control pages and found the error messages shown in the attached screenshot. What is happening, and how can I get Firefox working again?

(Note: Since I have completely uninstalled Firefox again since taking this screenshot, there is no troubleshooting data to send.)

I have Firefox on a couple of (Windows 10) PCs. This problem is happening on one of them. It has two profiles (users), and it's happening on both.

If I open Firefox, and then trying going to google.co.uk, or do any google related search, almost everytime there is an obvious 30-40s delay. Indeed, during this time I can even open up other web sites (immediate), and trying google.co.uk again, and delay continues to occur.

Opening up the Network Console in Firefox, the GET request can be seem and then like clockwork there is about a 41000ms delay until it then continues.

If I open in TroubleShoot mode, same issue.

If I open in a Private Window, the problem does NOT occur.

This problem does NOT happen on my other PCs with Firefox, or any other browser on the PC in question.

This is very frustrating :( You open firefox to do a google search and it takes tens of seconds to resolve (on the first attempt) :(

Hello,

I'm not able to get a download popup when I left click to download (anything) - only if I right click and select save file as i'm able to save it and download the file - something prevents the auto download from flowing properly.

if i run on safe mode there is no problem and i can download it - I did all of the explained here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems I also disabled all of the the add-ons or disabled them one by one but it didn't help to locate the problem - still can't download on regular mode.

I refreshed firefox, deleted & reinstalled it and with a new profile its the same as safe mode - no problem. I copied the files from the old profile to the new but the problem returns.

Any suggestions on how to locate the problem?

thanks!
