While exploring about pages in Firefox, I came across about:profiling. I'm not sure what exactly it does, but since I've been to it, a profiler icon has been added to the toolbar and I can't find any way to get rid of it completely (only ways are to hide it). If it could be added, there must also be a way to remove it? How can I close it?

This page [Old question on subject] apparently no longer works as that parameter is TRUE on my system. This one [Using greasemonkey script] doesn't sound encouraging. I don't want to break the china to fix the cabinet door.

I also saw one posting about adding to a Vue script but writing that is not my idea of a solution. Any better suggestions?

Thanks.

I am honestly in chock with Firefox's terrible decision of not providing any option for the user to delete downloaded files.

It is honestly amazing that they came up with such a terrible decision. My downloads folder is a complete mess now and there seems to be no way to fix this.

I don't understand why not just provide an option for the user to only open files. People should be able to choose their settings.

I refereed to this previous post and the solution there didn't work: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370409. By setting browser.download.improvements_to_download_panel to false.

Is there actually no way to only open files now?

Graphical Glitches and video freezing - Firefox 102.3.0esr-1~deb10u2 (Debian 10)

Every time I login to my desktop it tries to restore Firefox and in turn Firefox tries to restore it's session, however all I get is a mess of graphical glitches, the interface doesn't even load, I get a window border and usually a copy of the KDE splash screen. I then have to kill the process, which of course means it looses my session so when I re-open it I get nothing, all my open tabs are gone and there is no restore session option.

Further, it can't even play streaming videos properly anymore. After one or two episodes of a TV show its lagging sometimes by minutes, eaten gigs of ram and the video often gets stuck, the audio helpfully carries on with a frame of video from about 5 minutes ago. This is not an exaggeration, I had a YouTube video where it changed to a graph with a voice over, after 5 minutes I started to notice the voice over was talking about things not on that graph and sure enough the video had frozen. Its an i9 10850K with 32GB of RAM. The previous version of Firefox didn't mind restoring a session with over 350 tabs and plenty were videos, this one can't handle 2 when one is a video without freezing or locking up the whole browser.

No other apps/ programs on this PC are having any issues, it is only happening in Firefox, I can for example open a media player and play a video just fine while the video is stuck in the browser or it has the graphic glitches. I also tried opening another instance of Firefox while it had the graphical issue, the new instance started and created a new entry on the task bar, but switching to it gave the same display as the broken one, I can't tell you what tabs either had open as nothing inside the window was rendered at all, not even the menu bar which I set to always being visible.

I always use DuckDuckGo for my search engine, and remove all others. In FF version 105.0.1 the 'remove' button is disabled when Google is selected (see the screenshot). All prior versions of FF have allowed me to remove Google. This version 105.0.1 always shows 'Search with Google or enter address' in the address bar. Prior versions show 'Search with DuckDuckGo or enter address'. I have attached a screenshot of the two latest versions. I am running Debian 11.5, 5.10.0-18-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.10.140-1 (2022-09-02) x86_64 GNU/Linux.

I'm trying to present my screen on Google Meet, but it appears to be blurred to other people in the meet. Other's say that sometimes it clears but only for a quick second. I was forced to install Google Chrome and I don't have any problem on my presentation. Everything was clear. I already tried to disable all my extensions, still the problem persist.

On this page with an Atari emulator, I am unable to use its controls that use the Alt key, such as Alt+P to pause.

It works with another browser, or with a fresh profile.

I've tried disabling add-ons and trying it again, but it fails even after disabling each of them. It also doesn't even work in troubleshooting mode, and that seems kinda odd?

It may be some modified settings in my Firefox profile? Though if it is, I don't know what settings, nor how to fix it. What sorts of settings are retained even in troubleshooting mode?

The opened pages are news portals I can't switch between pages, I can't close pages Switching to another application in Linux everything works fine. I can close Firefox and restore the previous pages after reopening. No error message. The about:crashes is empty. In gnome-system-monitor firefox-bin looks good

I've just rebooted and I've lost two windows with thirty tabs, or something.

When I started Firefox, there's nothing in the Recently Closed [Tabs, Windows]

Reading online, I see that Firefox should be writing some files to the sessionstore-backup directory, like these:

recovery.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your currently live Firefox session (or, if Firefox crashed at the last shutdown and is still closed, your last session) recovery.baklz4: a backup copy of recovery.jsonlz4 previous.jsonlz4: the windows and tabs in your last Firefox session upgrade.jsonlz4-build_id: the windows and tabs in the Firefox session that was live at the time of your last update

, but I only find recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 and both are tracking current time, which means they are getting data from the currently opened Firefox.

These are the only files I find in this directory.

Where are the other files supposed to have gone?

Hello :)

Firefox 102.0.1 crashes after some Time. Firefox then is unable to switch between Tabs and stuck at the opened Website.

For testing Purpose i start over with a new profile and did not install any Add-ons. The behavior was the same, it crashes after some hours.

My System is Ubuntu Mate (Ubuntu with Mate Desktop) in Version 20.04.

Here has someone the same problem: -> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=277649
