I have three FF profiles on my Linux Mint 19.3 system (work, not-work and one for e-tail). Somehow the problem only appeared after I added that last one. All profiles have the same syntax; I checked the files. Neither one is set to be the dominant one. Typically, I don't use more than one at a time.

I also use Claws mail. Whenever I get any mail with a link I want to check out, I just used to click on that link and it opened in a new tab in the FF browser profile that was currently open. Similarly, whenever I wanted to see the HTML version of a mail, I right-clicked on the html-icon and chose open. Again, it picked the open browser.

Now, though, whenever I pick either one of those options above, I get the "Choose User Profile" box. If I pick the profile that is currently open, I get an error telling me that it's already running.

Since I mostly read email when I use the no-work FF profile, I tried to add "firefox -P NotWork -no-remote --class NotWorkProfile" but that also resulted in the choose user profile box to open.

My current work-around is to copy the link and open it in a new tab, or pull the whole mail into the tab to see the HTML version. Quite annoying.

Is there any way to get it to ignore all other profiles but the currently open one? Thank you for anyone who has an idea. Let me know if there's anything else I may add to explain the situation.

[My apologies if this isn't the right forum; I'm also attempting to ask this question in the Linux Mint and Claws forums, if those exist.]

Option to reduce touchpad sensitivity at the end of each scroll

There are ongoing discussions about the high touchpad scrolling sensitivity on several Wayland applications like Firefox. Luckily, I found a workaround with this issue by setting `apz.gtk.kinetic_scroll.enabled` to `false` and increasing the default value of `general.smoothScroll.mouseWheel.durationMinMS` from `50` to `120`. However, there is still minor quirk with my scrolling experience especially at the end of each scroll or each time I pause scrolling.

This minor quirk has a lot to do with how I do the two-finger scroll gesture. For each scroll, I don't necessarily lift my fingers up immediately. I might pause for a while then scroll further until my finger reaches the end of the touchpad or I might scroll in the opposite direction without lifting my finger up. However, just having two of my fingers rest on the touchpad detects even the slightest movement. The effect is a page slightly shakes each time I pause scrolling without lifting my fingers up. Although, this minimal shake also occurs as I lift my finger up.

This behavior is detailed in a bug report here . It might have something to do with Wayland but based on my experience, the issue still persists when running Firefox through XWayland. Also, Vivaldi (Chromium) which also runs in XWayland, doesn't show this problem. In Vivaldi, the touchpad will be less sensitive (at least that's how it feels for me) each time I pause scrolling.

I already tried fiddling with the following through the `about:config` to no avail:

  • apz.touch_move_tolerance
  • apz.touch_start_tolerance
  • mousewheel.transaction.ignoremovedelay
  • mousewheel.transaction.timeout

I use Firefox 87 on a number of notebooks duel booting various distros of linux (Mint, Manjaro, and MX Linux) and Windows 10, as well as a desktop running Windows 10.

On the notebooks Firefox is set to always use private browsing mode in both linux and Windows. On the desktop machine it isn't, but I always have private windows open. On the desktop version of Firefox private windows have the purple circle with a mask icon to show they are private. On the machines that are set to always use private mode Firefox never shows that icon, so I have to go on faith that they are private. Is there a reason always private doesn't also have the private icon?

Also, on the machines where Firefox is launched in always private mode, it always open 2 separate windows. This is a consistent thing when in always private mode.

Firefox Dev Ed is a great browser for web development and tweaking CSS. But sadly it does not always show default property values.

A classic example of this is the
    element's default padding-left property. This apparently is set at 40px automatically unless overridden by the web designer. I think that ALL inherited or default properties of elements ought to be clearly shown in the inspect tool's styling listings. You could spend hours maddeningly trying to find the cause of some of these offsets to what you expected to display. The curious thing is that some inherited or default property values are shown on the inspect tool - which leads us to assume that what is seen on inspect is all that there is . . . This change should not be too difficult to implement. And it would be a great thing to have when searching down unexpected behaviour in webpage displays.

On a number of sites (YouTube, Twitch, Netflix, etc), after pausing and resuming a video or jumping to a new timestamp, the video will play but be muted. The video player does not show it is muted, but no sound is playing. Jumping to another timestamp or using a keyboard shortcut to jump a couple of seconds will resume audio playback. This started happening within the last few days. Any ideas on how to fix this would be appreciated

Long story short, I have gaps in my history in Firefox. I'm on the latest stable desktop version, but this happens both on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04) and Windows 10.

I can't really pin down what causes this, it seems totally random. Every now and then, I'll be browsing, close the browser, realize I need to do something on a page I was recently on, I relaunch, press "ctr+h", go to the 'Today' drop down tab, and the most recent entry is multiple hours old, in some cases it's not even from the same day. The pages I was just on are nowhere to be found.

I would guess it's just late to update the history, but then there are times where I'll go through my history from a few days ago looking for a specific page I know I visited, and I'm able to find some but not all. Again, it just seems like there are random gaps in my history.

When i click on the google maps icon (google uk home page>dots in top right hand conrner>google maps icon)or type google maps into the search field then click on the google maps link I end up on the Sheffield Hallam University log in page (a bookmark from a while ago). This has started happening in the last few weeks.

If I use Edge then everything happens as expected and google maps opens.

I have tried refreshing firefox and disabling add-ons, neither works.

Using Windows 10 home V20H2, upto date firefox.

I was wondering if there is a way to hide the titlebar (tabs, bookmarks, url, extensions, etc.) like fullscreen mode does while in windowed mode. A hotkey toggle would be preferred. Currently I am using some old CSS I found online but it's got some pretty glaring issues such as search suggestions being cutoff. Supposedly this was possible back in 2011 with an extension and something called "zombie mode" but the extension is no longer available (and most likely wouldn't work anymore). Thanks.

Hi When I am playing a youtube video in fullscreen in firefox, I sometimes see other programs or videos overlayed on top of the fullscreened video. I have attached an example screenshot.

When I google for youtube fullscreen problems, pretty much the only advice I have found is to disable or enable hardware acceleration. Neither work for me.

I am using Ubuntu 16.04, if that helps.

I am Getting both "incorrect password" and "your email was returned" errors

I know the password is correct as I can still use it to log in (including logging into these forums) though I am getting this error when trying to create a recovery key or reset my password

For the "your email was returned" error, the email address is typed correctly in my account and I have gotten confirmation emails from FireFox as recently as 2 days ago. I get this error when trying to sign in to sync the Multi-Account Containers addon, as well as when trying to use "forgot password" to get a reset link.

I'm not sure how to proceed with these errors as each issue is preventing me from resolving them on my own.

At one point while I was getting the incorrect password error I got a message that my account is locked and an email would be sent to me for confirmation...though of course that also got "your email was returned"
