everytime I open firefox, it automatically switches tabs like these which require authentication to log in. even though their password is saved, I am still required to click in sign-in button.

Its really annoying that these kind of tabs get opened automatically, and then I have to switch back. Is there a way to disable this autoswitch or better, let the authentication happen automatically since the password is already stored ?

I'd like to import my Seamonkey profile data to Firefox, but Firefox doesn't recognize Seamonkey or its data. How can I do this? I'd like to keep my Firefox data synced to Seamonkey, and maybe synced the other way too. And I'd like Thunderbird to be able to sync to the Seamonkey email data too, for what it's worth. I thought the importing of data when Firefox starts would take care of importing SM data but it doesn't. Are there any commandline options for running Firefox that would get the importing done? I sure don't want to mess around with a huge html bookmarks file and there's other data in Seamonkey besides bookmarks that should be imported too. Help!

Firefox is currently unusable on my system as I get the message "Gah. Your tab just crashed." for every website I try to access. Troubleshoot mode doesn't work. They don't register as crashes. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling and that doesn't work either. I am using Firefox under Pop! OS.

Linux Firefox not accepted by online sales websites in Zorin OS and Linux Mint

Zorin16-Linux version 99.0 Ubuntu Canonical 1.0, -found in Help/About. Firefox recognition of version below says 91.0. Also have Linux Mint 19.3 (Tricia). Computer 15YO Dell Dimension 900.

I've had no problems with Linux Firefox for many years. I do not use any other Non-Linux OSes. Linux Mint updates Firefox regularly and so do I in that OS. I'm currently in a free version of Zorin which doesn't seem to push out updates, so my Zorin Firefox may be sadly out of date.

At any rate, today in Zorin, when I went to several of the bigger online sales platforms, they refused to accept my Firefox and suggested Chrome, Opera, and Safari; Target suggested Firefox.

Went to Mozilla to try and upgrade, but it didn't offer the Linux browser automatically when it read my computer. I was only offered the Windows browser. This may be because the computer is an old Dell Windows machine that I converted to Linux or it may not. I've never had this happen before.

Yesterday in Linux Mint, in which Firefox is upgraded at least weekly, the same thing happened once with a big online retailer. They said my browser was outdated and unsafe.

What's going on? I'm wondering if Linux OSes are simply not being accepted when the big retailers are doing software upgrades, or is something going on with Firefox?

Since upgrading to Firefox 103.0.1 on Linux Mint I am noticing that clicking on the URL bar or typing anything into it now adds "Search with Google" and "Search with Amazon" in the dropdown URL suggestions. This is unwanted behaviour since I have those search engines disabled.

In searching for an answer I found some old suggestions such as setting browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete to false. However this no longer works.

Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?

Sometimes, if the computer is offline and Firefox is open, when the computer goes back online Firefox can't connect to any website, with the page "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". The only fix is to close Firefox and open it again. Going offline doesn't always do this, and while I'm not sure of what exactly causes this to happen, a way to easily reproduce it is:

  • Turn off the Wi-Fi;
  • Reboot the computer;
  • Open Firefox;
  • Turn on the Wi-Fi;

After the computer is connected, refreshing the page sends you to "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". You have to restart Firefox.

A way that doesn't 100% reproduce it, but works enough times, is to reboot the computer without turning off the Wi-Fi, and open Firefox as soon as possible (before the computer manages to connect to the router, which is the part that isn't always consistent). Rarely, it happens after suspending the computer, or after a disconnection due to an unstable connection. I can reproduce it in Firefox's safe mode. I have a hunch that maybe this is related to networking drivers.

I'm using a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05 (Network controller: Intel Corporation Wi-Fi 6 AX200 (rev 1a)), Linux NixOS 22.11 (I don't know about Windows).

Ask me for any log you might need.

This is kinda a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1078253, except that their solution does nothing to me.

Hi everyone,

a long time ago, Firefox on GNU/Linux didn't have this default behaviour I've described in the title of my question (but FF on Windows had this behaviour at the time, so I believe it was decided to unify the behaviour on all platforms).

The thing is: I truly dislike having the existing text selected automatically. When I click a precise location in the URL or Search field (where some text already exists), I expect the text cursor to locate at this exact spot, NOT the existing text to be entirely selected! With this "new" default behaviour, it now requires 2 clicks to achieve the same task (not what I'd call an improvement) and makes it really PAINFUL to construct a list of search terms (one by one) by copying/pasting them from the current web page (funnily, it proves to be less painful when copying text from another application, since the automatic selection of previously pasted search terms does NOT happen when pasting an additional term -> this is exactly the behaviour I'm expecting).

Historically, whenever I was willing to have the existing text SELECTED (I agree this can be useful from time to time), I used keyboard shortcuts Ctrl+L or Ctrl+K to move the text cursor to the URL or Search field (respectively).

All in all, the historical behaviour of FF on GNU/Linux was just fine (at least to me).

So my QUESTION today is: how to get this historical behaviour back? How to prevent the existing text from being selected when I just CLICK in the URL or Search field?

I've not been able to find a hidden option to configure this behaviour since FF on Linux changed the rule. So I'm afraid it doesn't exist... But if so, would it be possible to add such an option?

Thank you :)

Until FF100, I used to disable <Ctrl><W> (close tab) by modifying browser/omni.ja, commenting the following line out in chrome/browser/content/browser/browser.xhtml :

<key id="key_close" data-l10n-id="close-shortcut" command="cmd_close" modifiers="accel" reserved="true"/>

It worked until FF100, but doesn't work anymore in FF103 : commenting that line out seems to have no effect on <Ctrl><W>.

Does anybody know why ? Or does anybody know a way to disable <Ctrl><W> ?

Background : on French keyboards, the <W> key is right next to <X>, so when I try to do a cut/paste (<Ctrl><X> → <Ctrl><V>) I sometimes end up doing <Ctrl><W> by mistake, thus closing the tab. Re-opening the tab doesn't always do the trick, sometimes the latest work is lost.

Firefox just locks up. The mouse cursor can be used to resize the window, but is otherwise unresponsive, except to to minimize, maximize or close the window. If I click minimize and then restore the window, Firefox will have executed the last mouse-click before minimizing. This happens after five minutes or so after starting Firefox, whether I have only 4 or 5 tabs open, or a whole pile of tabs. All I can do is click X in top RHS, and then restart Firefox. Then click the "recently closed tabs" to get back to where I was. I have tried clearing the cache and (most of) the cookies. As well I did a complete refresh of Firefox, and disabled all the add-ons, but the problem is still there Running on a (old) Lenovo Thinkpad E545 with 16GB, Ubuntu in a SSD using a 50 GB partn with 30GB free. This problem occurs only in Firefox- all other apps continue to run!

OS: Pop!_OS 22.04 LTS Firefox: 102.0.1

I have the above version of firefox installed on my machine. I had noticed that automatic updates weren't being installed and did a little digging. I removed the policies.json file, ran `sudo apt update` and `sudo apt upgrade`, and checked the software update store on my machine. None of these suggestions resolved the issue. I then noticed that whenever I would select `Automatically install updates (recommended)` and close firefox that the change would not persist.

I'm not entirely certain what the issue is at this point and any guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help!

But when I installed firefox again and after loggedin, I'm syncing everything but this is restoring (syncing) very old data which doesn't have my latest bookmarks, extenstions & saved logins!!

The WebAPI (RTCPeerConnection.createOffer) fails with below exception at application code.
