I'm running ArchLinux with Xfce 4.16.

One of the lastest firefox updates has broken it on my system. It keeps crashing at random times, most of the time when I do some action, maybe press a button on a website, maybe open a new window, maybe select some text on a website... It doesn't occur always, most of the time things work fine, but, at some point, I perform an action that has worked fine the last few times, and it hangs the browser.

The easiest way I found to replicate it is by opening and closing the Downloads window. Around 15% of the times I open it, the browser stops responding completely.

I'm not sure which firefox version introduced the bug because I don't update the system so often. My last pacman updates where January-2022 and November-2022. The version from January-2022 worked fine but since the November-2022 update I've been experiencing this problem.

I've created a new profile, disabled hardware acceleration but the problem persist. I'm also not using any kind of proxy, its a clean profile.

Running it from the console only shows one message at startup, but nothing when the browser hangs.

This is the message shown at startup:

[GFX1-]: glxtest: VA-API test failed: failed to initialise VAAPI connection. [2022-12-17T23:22:27Z ERROR glean_core::metrics::ping] Invalid reason code start

But the browser can be working for half an hour after it with no problems.

Hi,

After an update, Firefox does not recognize middle click at all. It worked in the past, but no longer. For example, middle clicking on... - a hyperlink should open a tab in the background - a bookmark bar item or bookmark menu should open that bookmark in background - empty space on the webpage should initiate autoscroll - a tab handle on the Firefox title bar area should close that tab None of these work as of now.

I'm on Windows 10, and I am using a Logitech MX Master 3 via USB Unifying receiver. I checked Logi Options+ app and confirmed the middle button is correctly set to middle button (default) and there's no per-app settings for Firefox.

Hello. My computer died (it's "fixed" now) and I have had to re-install Firefox. I saved all of my configuration files before I sent the laptop to be fixed. I have re-installed Firefox and I am now trying to re-install my bookmarks and cookies. In the past I have simply copied the saved places.sqlite and cookies.sqlite files into my profile, but I have done that and I still don't see my bookmarks when I open Firefox.

What else do I need to do?

Thanks much! Ted S.

p.s. How do I know if I should be using the "default" or the "default-release" folder?

The dozens of bookmarks I had that I did not put in folders has grown in numbers exponentially. I don't know how. I had nothing to do with it. I went from having about 200 bookmarks (outside of what I had in separate folders) to what seems to be roughly 5000. This is ridiculous. How can I 1, correct this, and 2, stop if from happening again.

Lately I'm getting a pop-up on my laptop and iphone offering to log in via my Google account. I don't have a Google account, and all the help articles I find just tell people how to disable that. I have cookies set to Strict, I've cleared the cache, made sure things are updated, and I still get this annoying pop-up. I've got various add-ons installed. AdGuard, ClearURLS, Cookie Autodelete, Decentraleyes, UBlock Origin, Disable HTML5, Facebook Container, Flash Control, and HTTPS Everywhere. I'm open to suggestions on where to go from here. Frustrating for this to just start suddenly, and having to find a way to disable it.

so the tab "scrolling" speed is so ridiculous that i dont even know what is it even used for? when i have lots of tabs opened and i press those arrows to scroll on the tabs row, it immediately scrolls into some random position, into the tabs that i didnt even see behind the scrolling arrows.

so is there a way to change that speed or some hyperscroll time delay or smth, so that i could actually scroll between the tabs and not get whacked into some random position among them?

When I logged into my Firefox account on a computer given to me by my employer, I acquired all the login info from all the other Firefox profiles on the computer, including bank details and a porn account. What's up with that?

I deleted all those old profiles and purged the extraneous passwords from my password list but did my passwords go online and mix with all those other people's passwords? And could someone repairing my computer open up their Firefox account and capture all of my passwords in the same manner?

Curious to know...
