Hi,

I'm using Firefox over various devices and systems.

For instance: - Firefox binary downloaded from Mozilla website and executed over Debian Testing - Firefox from Arch Linux official repositories in Arch systems

My doubt is: could this cause any problem with the Sync function? Or Sync has the flexibility to allow syncing between a wide specter of Firefox installations

For instance: Could I add Fennec from F-Droid to my LineageOS smartphone or Firefox-ESR from Debian repositories to my desktop machine, log in with my account in all of them and synchronize all the sessions without problems?

Thanks a lot in advance!, and let me know if I should add any technical information.

Kind regards!

System locks-up when I go to Yahoo start page and try to scroll, though I'm able to get to email. This is the only site that crashes. Have to do a hard shutdown since HD and cursor are frozen. This has been going on since last FF update, maybe even the one before. Plug-ins are uBlock Origin and Video DownloadHelper. Anyone else experience this?

    1. Steps to reproduce

1. Open the history sidebar (on Win/Linux: Ctrl+H). 2. Enter a search string that returns many results (e.g. facebook.com). 3. Select all results (Ctrl + A), and delete them all (Delete) 4. Notice that the main thread hangs until the deletion is complete (in my case, > 30 seconds)

    1. Expected behaviorOS:

The deletion should be not cause the rest of the application to deadlock.

    1. Other info

OS: Manjaro i3, but IIRC it was also present on Ubuntu. Firefox version: 88.0 (64-bit), but has been present for as long as I can remember (at least a year).

I'm currently using Linux Firefox 88.0 (64-bit). There is a webpage http://www3.winsystem.org/monitor/webmonitor.php that displays some streaming text information as people transmit on their amateur radios. Is it somehow possible to capture that information stream in real-time?

My intent is to use a shell script for further processing.

I'm using Firefox 88.0-2 installed on Debian 10 using snap.

When i try to upload any file it just doesn't show the file selection window. When i try to download any file it shows the window where it asks what you want to do with this file but doesn't download it when i select the save option. I tried changing the download location, clearing the download history, clearing the settings of firefox handles different types of files and also resetting firefox.

Also firefox creates a folder 'firefox.tmp' in downloads folder on my machine. Even if delete it, it gets created again when i start firefox.

Anyone else facing this issue or any idea how to tackle it ?

Hi.

Often, "HTTPS Everywhere" blocks links to sites because the real URL is embedded in another (probably tracking) URL, and that URL points to a site that doesn't support HTTPS.

I have both ClearURLs and "HTTPS Everywhere" installed, and I hypothesize that if "ClearURLs" could remove strip the surrounding tracking URL from the embedded real URL, most real sites would work without complaint.

Can I somehow tell Firefox to apply "ClearURLs" before "HTTPS Everywhere", so that "HTTPS Everywhere" operates on the sanitized real address? (Or am I interpreting the situation wrongly?)

Thanks for your help.

Warmly, Pete

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.]

Hi there,

I was wondering for the past few months if there is maybe someone at Firefox DEV/UI team who so much hates the Close multiple tabs menu item, that slowly but surely is getting to disappear?

  1. In the good ol days there was a separate menu item Close Tabs To The Right under the tab right click menu. Which was very useful and I used it a lot.
  2. Then this developer/designer from above, or some political committee decided that to remove that one and to put it as a submenu under a new menu item Close Multiple Tabs. That was outrageous, but I said well, maybe they have some weird reason behind this change so I should probably get used to the new version. In the end the Close Tabs To The Right menu item was still first in the list.
  3. Then since last week or two, I realized that this evil entity above decided to set the Close Tabs To The Right to be the second one in the list under the submenu! And this is too much! I've made like countless mistakes of closing the very important tabs on the left for the past few days by just wrongly assuming I'l clicking the right submenu item.

So guys and gals or aliens or whatever you are, what are you trying to do? Ruin the browser on purpose?

I'm using the Firefox for decades as my main browser, but it is getting worst and worst with every new release. And the reasons to still stay with it are diminishing. Which is sad...

For a few days, Firefox has been freezing at certain pages and interactions. For instance:

Other pages work fine. When the freeze happens, the whole browser becomes completely unresponsive, including the window controls. The following is printed in the console if I launch FF from console:

``` ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 10319 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ```

I am running FF version 88.0 (64-bit) on Arch Linux under Gnome on Wayland, installed through pacman.

What I have tried without success:

  • Using a new FireFox profile (no extensions, history, cookies, etc)
  • With and without WebRender
  • With and without Wayland composition (`MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND`)
  • All combinations of the two above
  • Restarting the system, updating the system, reinstalling firefox
  • Running mozregression

With mozregression I had the issue for all builds since `56f6da03c7e352f53fa923b30f66dfdf09a34116`, for all older builds I get the "Gah. Your tab just crashed." message.

I don't have issues with other programs or web browsers.

The latest update 89.0b3 broke my entire workflow and actually leaves me wondering, if programmers at Mozilla never search the web for errors - am I the only one getting errors during compile time? It's now nearly impossible to use Firefox efficiently to search for errors during coding. As can be seen in your press screenshots (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/about-new-tab-page) there used to be a "Search the web" bar on the new tab page in addition to the "Search or enter web address" URL bar. As their descriptions say, the search bar always triggered a web search - this is a feature i regularly used (~50 times on a work day), which has now been removed. Why? Because Firefox often recognizes my search queries as keywords to trigger the system handler, because they contain a ":". This is often the case with error messages of compilers, as in "ImportError: cannot import name". Instead, both bars show the same description "Search or enter web address" and work the same. Please tell me, how can I restore my search-only-bar, or is a bug report needed to revert changes/introduce a configuration option?

Hi,

After an update on Firefox 87.0 the pop-up exceptions defined are not working in private mode. A yellow bar appears that tells me that prevent the popups. If I choose to allow the popups with the button on the left of url then the url is added on exceptions/allowed window with a ^privateBrowsingId=1 marked in the url. However this is not persisted on a next run of firefox on private mode.

If someone have setup exceptions is there for a reason and should not be broken in private mode. I also cannot add ^privateBrowsingId=1 on my own in the url on the exceptions, as it appeared as %5 in exceptions and it does not work to allow pop-up.

Thanks
