Profile changes after update

Hi all, I use to update Firefox with my Linux distribution package: I build the new package then upgrade it on the system. Anytime at the first launch of the new Firefox just installed version, it opens a new blank profile instead of my usual profile. I can set my usual profile as default by launch Firefox Profile Manager. So after update I launch from command line terminal or through launcher bar:

firefox -p

And It starts up profile manager, then I choose my usual profile and check it as default one. After that, when I open Firefox again, it uses my usual profile as expected.

Now the question: - is there a way to automate this procedure so I have not to repeat it anytime after I update the browser?

PS. I noticed my "profiles.ini" file is populated with a lot of profiles sections, likely maybe anytime I update, a new one is added in here. I don't know if it is a regular behavior or not.

When you use Google's Translator, this application automatically adds a link to Firefox's history each time you modify even a tiny bit of what you are translating.

This means that sometimes, you can add 1,000 links within a day when you incrementally translate a piece of text, what is the default way to do.

Today, two minutes of that work generated 40 links!

Example of a typical link:

https://translate.google.com/?hl=de&sl=de&tl=en&text=Manchmal%20ist%20es%20wichtiger%2C%20etwas%20zu%20schenken%2C%20als%20wie%20es%20beim%20Adressaten%20ankommt&op=translate

And that was only a small piece of text!

In my history, there are in between 50,000 of these, despite regularly deleting many of them.

Even on a relatively fast notebook, deleting 1,000 links in the history takes minutes.

I posted the problem to Google Translate as a feedback many times, but they never answered.

Is there a possibility within Firefox to selectively get rid of this permanent garbage?

That would be wonderful.

Firefox 119.0 on Ubuntu 22.04 has started to freeze which requires killing all Firefox processes

My apologies if I am being a numpty, but I have been using Firefox for many years without issue, and recently (possibly after an update, but I cannot be certain), it has started to randomly freeze. I am running Ubuntu 22.04, and Firefox 119.0. I have demonstrated to myself that if I open a web page with links (but not always), and click on the link, I may still scroll up and down the page, but the mouse cursor never seemed to recognise the hotlink, and doesn't jump to it. The links will work on Chromium. I initially tried resetting the browser, thereby losing all my open pages, but that didn't work. That also removed all extensions ("all" two of them) and that didn't work. Firefox is now pretty much unusable. Any help to resolve this would be appreciated, as I cannot find any solutions online, and it seems I am not alone with this issue! Many thanks,

I tried the RPM and Flatpak Firefox, both in the newest version give me crashes when Loading Youtube, Invidious, Stud.IP, Nextcloud and more "bigger" sites.

It seems like an OOM error, but I have way enough RAM, 4GB/12GB used.

I tried the Flatpak and the RPM Version.

I tried troubleshooting mode.

I used the Arkenfox user.js on both installs.

How to open links to filesystem folders with system file manager.

I have a 'site' that is just files on my hard drive.

I need to click an anchor link such as: <a href="file:///dir1/dir2/dir3/dir4">Store Your Files Here</a> and have Firefox open the folder dir4 with the systems file manager. ( In my case the file manager is Nautilus ) ( Ubuntu 20.04 )

I have seen this: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Links_to_local_pages_do_not_work but it does not describe a scenario that uses the file:/// interface.

It also does not provide any information about how the files will be handled.

I can get the folder link to work currently , but it appears with the: 'Index of file///...' in a browser tab.

Obviously you can not use that for anything useful.

The main goal is to open the folder and be able to use the system file manager to include more content for the site without having to navigate to the folder manually. The folders I want to display are buried many levels down without the possibility of having descriptive names. I have ~121 pages/folders in this arrangement , and each one has content for each page. I would like to add a button on each of the 121 pages that will open each of the pages content folder.

On bootup firefox opens a single window which says the following:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

The restore function succeeds in restoring 6 windows from the prior session, but this notice keeps appearing on every bootup.

Here are a few relevant details from about: config

  • browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes (is set to 1)
  • browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash (is set to true)
  • No 3rd party third party cleaning software
  • Two extensions, tab stash and tree tabs
  • There are no entries in about:crash for this event

Have been using Firefox from 2004 with 5-10 open windows which appear on bootup as they existed from the prior session. This is the first occurance of this error. Appreciate your support. Here are a few system details:

1.) 28gb ram 2.) Linux ~ LMDE 5 (Elsie) 3.) Firefox ESR 115.8 (oesr) 64 bit.

I noticed this morning that the radar site of theweathernetwork.com has stopped working on Firefox. I am running the latest Firefox from OpenSuse Tumbleweed. The strange thing is Vivaldi also has the same problem so I suspected it's not a Firefox problem. So I logged into Firefox on my two other Linux distros, Debian and Fedora and Firefox has the same problem on them!!. Strange that Vivaldi suffers the same problem, the radar site never loads in Firefox, and in Vivaldi it sort of loads but runs VERY slowly. I tried restarting Firefox in troubleshoot mode and it got as far as a page saying some browsers don't support the site and suggested I update my browser. It appears the radar site has made some sort of change which two browsers under Linux cannot cope with. Unfortunately the radar site of theweathernetwork.com is the best of all the sites available.

Dear Support, I posted my js-library on the hosting https://rombase.ru/o5/olga5/o5.js and copied it to https://leonrom.github.io/o5/olga5/o5.js

I try to connect to it from Blogger, for example: https://olga-5.blogspot.com/2020/02/olga5-shp.html?o5debug=2 and I change the link to the library's hosting in the <head> of my blog.

The Chrome browser works the same way wherever o5.js is located. But Mozilla, when placed on rombase.ru, swears in the console: `The resource at “https://rombase.ru/o5/olga5/o5.js” was blocked by Safe Browsing`

My Firefox is 109.0.1 (64 bit) under MX Linux

Could you please tell me: what is the "safety"-difference between rombase.ru and leonrom.github.io? What shall I change in rombase.ru to work properly?

Thank you PS Connecting via VPN (from Ukraine) does not help

I have just encountered another of Mozilla's unwanted, unneeded changes.The three simple little characters that almost all programs show in the upper right hand corner on the screen. These are long standing and well understood icons that were easy to use to manage your windows. Need to switch between program windows? Press the - key. Need to enlarge the screen to its fullest, press the open box, finished working with this program/screen, just click the x-box. Pressing the "open box" would adjust the screen so you could use the cursor to make the screen the siz you needed.

It's not just that these features work and are understood, Mozilla makes changes with no explanation, no other options for doing the same thing (exception: I can close the window with File> Exit (or Close)

I just spent a week getting Thunderbird115+ to "work" and now I have to figure out how to recreate what I've lost on Firefox? Like other people seeking support have said, I want the Firefox I know back.

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 :

xdg-desktop-portal xdg-desktop-portal-gtk

I am a UK user and have just installed and started to use Firefox on a brand new Linux Mint installation. As I am transferring from a Windows/Chrome environment, there is a lot of setting up to do. Firefox transferred most of the chrome info for me, and so I was able to get up and running with bookmarks and logins quite quickly. However, there is one problem that I can't seem to resolve.

I have been able to set up my credit card details, and these are prompted when needed, BUT, Firefox will not remember my name, email, phone or address. Thus for every form that I have to fill, I have to enter these details, again and again (and again).

I have looked at settings and see that the 'Autofill Address' option is not present (see attachment).

I have followed and implemented the fix proposed elsewhere, to update/add GB as an address format. This has not made a difference.

Can anyone please help.

Regards,

Mark

Sync is a nightmare. It is so unintuitive! What exactly would be wrong with having separate Export and Import buttons for each of Settings, Addons, Tabs, History, Bookmarks, etc? I have a desktop box and a newer laptop I wanted to get up to date. I pressed the Sync button on the desktop ... By the way, there`s a link below that reads "Connect another device" ... Connect where? Someone is designing these interfaces who has absolutely zero imagination. Anyways, I signed off, moved the ethernet cable to my laptop, signed in, pressed Sync, and voila!, I got my Bookmarks, at least. But I have no idea how to get my tabs and windows. I tried with a "download link" something or other, but it seemed to assume I was sync-ing to a phone, and didn`t work. Any way to get my tabs?

Firefox 102.0.1 (Arch and Slackware 15)

Normal mode working fine no major complaints. However, Troubleshoot Mode is broken.

Arch: Browser goes to restart in safe mode. The window opens but no pages will load (local or remote). It looks like it is going through the motion (circular animation) but nothing ever loads. I have to get out of Troubleshoot Mode for pages to start loading.

Slackware: Browser goes to restart in safe mode but nothing else happens. No window opens. KSysGuard shows Firefox running with memory usage blank. I have to end process from KSysGuard.

Using DNS over HTTPS ADGuard and Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode

Arch: I tried using a new profile, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and re-installing Firefox but the issue still occurs.

In Firefox I do log in to my account and sync in both Slackware and Arch.

Any thoughts? I can't seem to figure out why Troubleshoot Mode is not working. It was working. I just noticed it was not working anymore yesterday.

Tried downgrading Firefox to 101.0.1 and starting with a new profile but Troubleshoot Mode still did not work.

I'm not seeing any error messages in dmesg and I'm out of ideas.

Thanks

I am using Pop OS, which is based off of Ubuntu.

Somehow I did something, and it made the icon disappear for Firefox. I figured I could easily search the internet and find a simple solution.

I temporarily fixed it last night, but here it is missing again.

I could upload a picture, but I don't see what difference that would make. The dock at the bottom has a spot for firefox, but no icon, literally an empty spot, In the application menu it is a blank spot with Firefox worded underneath.

I have uninstalled, reinstalled, purged, deleted the application data in my user folder..

Just annoying. not a huge problem.
