On occasion with mulitple pages open on firefox it then stops opening up to any new page. I can be watching a YouTube video on page 1 while reading on page 2 or more, and then page 2 will no longer bring up new pages. Page one also stops going to any new site requested at that point. Although the curent page will still work. At that point I have to shut down the browser to regain control. What is happening here?

My installation of 32-bit Firefox 102 had been repeatedly crashing, sometimes for no apparent reason. I decided to download the 64-bit version of Firefox 102, uninstalled the 32-bit version, carried out a standard installed and all this appeared successful. I noticed that I was getting a lot of advertisements and remembered that I had had Ghostery installed as an extension in my 32-bit Firefox. I went to the extensions page, selected Ghostery and asked for it to be added. Shortly after that, I got a message that the installation had been aborted because the extension might be corrupt. I tried again and got the same message. I tried another ad blocker, and got the same message with that one; and tried a third with the same result. What is going on? I haven't changed any settings in Firefox since the standard installation, and the extensions were from the Firefox source, so how can the extensions be corrupt? If it isn't corrupt, why isn't Firefox installing it?

Reproducable crash in ubuntu 20.04 from Firefox 102.0 64-bit

Steps to re-create: create a new campagin attempt to change the display image using the hover-button over the image on the page.

What happens: I click the "change image" button, it gives me the os file picker. I select the file i want and click open and the file picker goes away. The "progress" bar at the top of the image shows up, changes through several states it seems. Then all screens freeze, and the computer stops responding to all output.

Supplemental info: This started happening after an update from ubuntu 18.04 lts to 21 to 22.04 lts. So I know I was not using a flatpak before and I am now.

I've attempted to use strace to figure out what's happening at the time of the freeze I'll include a picture of that if this form does not cause my entire pc to freeze. But didn't really get any useful info from that. I tried reading dmesg at the time of the crash but so far the screen freezes before any relevent information pops up. I've not been able to find any logs about whats going in previous dmesg logs.

Troubleshooting steps: I've attempted the same procedure in firefox's safe mode. This does not seem to stop the crash. I've attempted the same procedure using chrome and this works as it should.

I changed the header/footer in about:config, but the changes will not save. Every time I change them, they revert to something else. I need &T for headerleft, &PT for headerright, &U for footerleft and &D for footerright. Invariably it changes all the headers to &U, footerleft to &P, and footerright to &D. My only thought is that I haven't saved the updates properly. Please help! ~AM

The present configuration of Bookmarks:

Both "areas" of Bookmarks are linked, deleting from one will update the other. Neither are isolated personal storage areas for selected bookmarks of the user's choosing. You can't keep/delete one bookmark in one area (Bookmarks toolbar and/or hamburger icon > Bookmarks) without the action being correspondingly reflected in the other area.

Now previously I could go to the hamburger Bookmarks, create and delete without my tool bar Bookmarks being effected. Any chance of this happening again please?

In every other App (PC and browser) my mouse scroll wheel behaves normally but with Sheets, in Firefox browser, the slightest wheel movement causes the sheet to scroll dozens of lines at a time. It doesn't misbehave with Sheets in Chrome. I've tried changing mouse settings and settings in Firefox but to no avail. Is there a setting somewhere in Sheets or Firefox that I can change to reduce the scroll speed?

Lately, when I try to create a desktop shortcut from the Github website, it instead create a folder, with the correct title of the page, and what looks like a link inside, with an abbreviated website name, but is not a shortcut at all.

Example: Try dragging the address bar padlock from this page to your desktop

Welcome to Refined GitHub!

Same thing happens when I try to drag its bookmark to the desktop.

Creating the shortcut from Chrome works properly, so I assume this is a Firefox problem.

Hi, I'm using version 101.0.1 (64 bit) for Ubuntu 22.04. When I open a link of a pdf file, the file is displayed in the built-in viewer, since I chose "Open in Firefox" in my settings. But then if I click the download icon nothing happens. If I click the print icon and choose "print to pdf" in the popup, then clicking on "save" does nothing and I have to click "cancel" to dismiss the popup.

Actually there is no way to save a pdf file but setting PDF app to "Ask always" and then open it with "System handler", but then the file is saved into the default download folder, even though I selected the checkbox "Always ask me where to save files" in my settings.

EDIT: the issue was solved by installing the following packages, as shown in this question :

I have always had my browser set to ask me where to save anything I'm downloading, as you can see by the attached screenshot. However, every single file I have downloaded for the past 2-3 days has first gone into my Downloads folder instead, forcing me to re-download the file in order to get it into the correct folder. If this was for personal usage, I wouldn't care, but having to continually download business files is getting old very very quickly. Firefox has been my default browser for the better part of two decades. I really don't want to switch to Chrome or Safari just because Firefox won't let a power user customize their usage experience.
