Dear friends at mozilla.org,

Thank you for your excellent browser, which I've used almost from its first versions.

I'd like to compile its source code, which I've downloaded from your website, into a working browser. I've spent several days, and get only as far as not-terribly-helpful error messages, that indicate strongly that I'm using versions of tools and libraries that the source code doesn't like.

I'm using

 linux kernel 6.1.0-13-686-pae (from Debian)
 gcc 13.2.0-9
 perl 5.36.0
 python 3.11.7

It's sufficiently important for me to compile firefox that I'd install a fresh linux system for this purpose. Could you possibly recommend to me what linux distribution I could install, and versions of compilation tools, header files, libraries, etc. that are known to work for compiling firefox? I'd be glad to report back to you my results, to help others who'd like to compile firefox.

In case you're wondering, I'm perfectly competent in installing software, including compiling anything. I'm an M.I.T. graduate, and have been a professional computer programmer for most of the half-century of my working life.

Thank you kindly for any response that you have time to send to me.

Very truly yours,

Lyman Opie [email address]

I have a fresh Ubuntu 22.04 workstation running on a Xeon w5-3433 (16x 2.0-4.2GHz). I noticed that certain front-end heavy websites (e.g. chess.com) are extremely laggy & cause CPU usage to spike to the point that other processes (e.g. Spotify audio processing) hang for ~500 ms. Additionally, simple actions (opening a new tab, closing the ctrl-f search bar) also cause CPU spikes & hangs. This shouldn't be happening.

Thus far I have: 1) Switched snap channel to Firefox beta 2) Switched snap channel to Firefox nightly 3) Uninstalled the Firefox snap; reinstalled from the new Mozilla repo via apt 4) Cried, sobbed 5) Obtained turbostat info (interrupts spike from ~75k to >100k when actively using ff (e.g. mousing over website elements/having chess.com tab active/rendering); ff is open always). Here it is: https://pastebin.com/Q2ZCDC0t 6) Run the ff profiler on laggy tabs. Screenshot attached.

Help! I am perplexed. What's all this RefreshDriver stuff? How do I kill the jank?

I'm using i3 window manager and normally popups would have some id or class that can be used to latch on and prevent the focus stealing but the windows created now do not have any such marker.

I have a Firefox account in order to use the sync capabilities. After a sync between desktop and phone the desktop bookmarks are on my phone in an extra folder "desktop bookmarks" and vice versa the phone bookmarks are in folder "Mobile bookmarks" in my desktop Firefox. Is this normal behaviour? I would expect them in one common folder to have a seamless synching.

Best regards, Walter

After using gnome-tweaks to change my system fonts, Firefox has unexpectedly gone silent and no longer shows text in areas like the search bar, tabs, settings, bookmarks, and menus. Rendering websites works just fine, but Firefox itself won't show any text.

Good evening. Since a few days (since installed ver 124) I'm unable to use the "repeatability" from keyboard. I couldn't find any adjustment option in configuration to manage this. I tried outside (with other programs) and it works fine. Maybe its me, that I'm missing some adjustment. Would you guide me about this, please? Thanks in advance!

I don't want the list because I don't want to be distracted by these sites.

While they are safe-for-work, I'd rather "fun" sites didn't come up when I'm working with other people.

Also shows that FF updates disabled by Administrator.

Is this the latest version for LM 21 ? And how do I enable updates automatically?

Thanks

So I have an issue where I am unable to reorder or detach tabs after having detached one tab. When I start Firefox I am able to reorder my tabs as much as I want, but once I detach one tab both functionalities do not work anymore.

- Firefox version 126.0 on Kubuntu 24.04 - After restarting Firefox I am able to do it again once - After rebooting I am also able to do it again once - The same issue in private window - I have refreshed Firefox through Help -> More troubleshooting information - Disabled all my add-ons - Tried it in Troubleshoot mode

I cannot seem to find a real answer online. Does somebody here have a solution for me :-)?

FF version Extended Support 115.70esr (64bit) I have set /General/Startup/"Open previous windows and tab" - FF does not restore. It worked as expect before I upgraded opsys (Opensuse15.4 to Opensuse15.5).

Please note: I AM NOT TRYING TO RECOVER FROM BEFORE THE UPGRADE! I am trying to get FF working normally (for me) with my usage and history SINCE the upgrade.

After reading https://support.mozilla.org/mk/questions/1407888 I believe I have tried everything there. FF sometimes restores one single historic tab, sometimes it comes with with one single tab opened to my default page.

1) "sessionstore.jsonlz4" did not exist in the main profile dir. (It does not because I followed instructions in the link above to copy it there and try again).

2) I do have a session file, found in sessionstore-backups dir , displayed with this recommended online converter/translater "https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html"; it shows the expected windows and tabs.

3) Starting after copying the "sess...jsoniz4" file into the main profile dir, I get one window with one tab displayed; I had about 4-5 windows and 15-20 tabs open when I last closed FF, although when doing research, I often have a 10-dozen windows with 100+ tabs.

4) The History menu does not show a "Restore..." option at all. In the window that did open with a historic tab, the History/RecentlyClosedTabs contains a list of plausible sites, about 10, which may be correct for that window. But there were certainly many that were actually open at the time I shut down FF and the window has only opened one.

Thank you for any help here. Rufus
