I can't seem to install vsn 89. I have vsn 87.0 currently and Netflix won't run without an upgrade. Also, Amazon Prime requires Widevine, which requires a FF upgrade, so I need to upgrade. The best I have been able to do is download the tar file and run Extract on it. According to the file viewer, the latest version of FF is loaded, but when I run the program, it's still v. 87, not 89. The simplest method given is to open the 'About Mozilla Firefox' window and the downloader will run. But there is no downloader running when I do that. I would really appreciate it if someone would supply instructions that actually work.

BTW: I've looked for them, and I don't find the 'required' library items. But if these are truly required and I don't have them, how has FF been running at all these past months? I concluded that either they are installed but I couldn't find them, or they aren't really required at all. I've also tried Flatpack and it doesn't work either.

On ubuntu 20.04, the snap version of firefox can't play some videos. Some youtube videos will play but streams won't, and then I get the message "to play video, you need to install the required video codecs". On telegram web and tweetdeck I also get this message while trying to play some video.

Since it's a snap, nothing I do on my system will solve the problem, I cannot install any codecs.

It's firefox 89.0

I'm a left handed mouse user. For editing purposes, I don't use my left hand, I use my right hand. And, generally use the right handed keyboard shortcuts as defined by Microsoft a long time ago. I've notice that some of the short cuts have been implemented, while others are not. It is possible to implement them all, as it's annoying when I try to do a copy and paste operation, and have to .. Left Click .. my mouse to execute a copy operation, while pressing [ SHIFT + INSERT ] to do the paste operation. I would prefer to just press [ CTRL + INSERT ] to copy.

PS .. I've also noticed that [CTRL + END] works, while [CTRL+ HOME] does not.

Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

Hi, When I set up the option to delete all cookies when we close firefox, Firefox transform a persistant cookies into a session cookies. This is not wat the option means. When the checkbox is not set, the persistant cookies is there.

I think it is a bug because the option is not about transforming a persistant cookies into a session cookies, but to clear all cookies (session and persistant) and data when we close firefox.

I recently updated to Firefox 89.0. I like the new look and feel, but ever since updating, I no longer see the little red notification emblem on the tab in Firefox when I have unread messages.

I've attached an image showing the tab in Firefox 89.0 (Left side) and the same Discord session in Firefox 88.0.1 (Right side). In Firefox 88.0.1, the notification emblem shows on the tab, but in FF 89.0, it doesn't.

Does anyone know if this is this a bug or some kind of option that I can change in FF 89.0?

Thanks for any help or advice anyone has to offer!

In Firefox settings, Firefox new tab, and in these mozilla forums, my add-ons are disabled. Specifically Vimium, and I get this message when hovering over the Vimium icon: "Vimium is not running on this page.

Your browser does not run web extensions like Vimium on certain pages, usually for security reasons.

Unless your browser's developers change their policy, then unfortunately it is not possible to make Vimium (or any other web extension, for that matter) work on this page."

How can I enable this, and possibly all normally active add-ons in these pages?

My shortcuts had large images on them and now they are half the size, but the shortcut is still the same size. How do I make larger images or go back to the theme I had before the last update. I'm using Firefox browser 89.0 (64 bit) for Linux mint. I hate this new theme. I'm getting older and sometimes my eyes don't work like before and I have to read the text. Images are easier for me to see. Don't make things that I have to accept. Thank you.

I have 3 systems that I want to use Firefox Sync on.

PC: everything. Laptop 1: everything but addons and settings. Laptop 2: bookmarks only.

I cannot make the sync settings persistent. After every sync all system sync settings reverted to the latest sync system. For example, set sync setting for laptop 2, then after sync started on 3 machines all 3 only sync bookmarks now; set sync for laptop 1, then after sync everything is on Laptop 2. Chrome did this really well so I can isolate some sync features on certain machines.

How can I do this on Firefox?

I have set a primary password in Firefox. Sometimes, the password prompt appears out of nowhere. For example, I have Firefox running in the background while I'm using a completely different application, and suddenly, the password prompt appears, asking me for my Firefox primary password.

This is very distracting, so I'm wondering if it's possible to configure Firefox to ask me for my primary password only while I'm using it. I don't care if the prompt appears as soon as I start Firefox, or whenever a new page is opened that requires a password. The only important thing is that the password prompt doesn't distract me while I'm using a different application.

Thanks in advance for any hints.

Is there a way to save a FF URL as a file in linux, from within FF?

I would like to save URLs to the file system as actionable files. Expecting to launch the default browser by double-clicking that file or opening a new tab if running, although I can see where that might get weird and launch only the file's source browser and not the default browser; not a problem as yet.

Note that I know this is not <Save Page As…/Web Page, complete> that saves the entire page content in a relative directory, or <Save Page As…/Web Page, HTML only> that saves page code to a file system link but without content. Also, not interested in FF internal solutions related to bookmarks, pocket, or favorites. FF is busy enough and my goal is to save links with my file system organization instead of duplicating that inside an application.

This is something I once did routinely with Safari on Mac OS, but eOS doesn't map without a default desktop. I expected FF to have a menu selection, contextual or not, or key combo common to all platforms, but I found nothing and very little online comment about this.

As a workaround, I can accomplish this is by dragging a highlighted URL from the FF address field to an open file manager directory window. The test file was under a reasonable 200 bytes and launched FF when double-clicked. However, this is cumbersome if the environment isn't ready and waiting, requiring opening a file manager without a desktop, navigating the file system, reducing maximized windows, and stacking windows within reach. Also, copying URL text can't be pasted into the file manager to create a new file; just thought I'd try it.

Short of installing a third party desktop, am I missing a simple way to do this with FF?

Bonus Question: what does the attached icon mean to you? I thought the little arrow on the known "code" document icon was mimicking Windows' shortcut style, but it's not an alias and I honestly don't know what the arrow means. If you action the file of this icon it opens a FF tab as I wrote above, but won't launch "code" even if asked, only readable from within code.
