Firefox won't retain default browser status

I'm using - System: Kernel: 5.4.0-89-generic x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 9.3.0 Desktop: Cinnamon 5.0.6

          wm: muffin dm: LightDM Distro: Linux Mint 20.2 Uma base: Ubuntu 20.04 focal 

In Linux Mint System Settings Firefox is the default web browser. That is also confirmed on the command line. Firefox is version 94.0 for Linux.

In Firefox/Settings/General/Startup - "Firefox is not your default browser" is always bold. When I click "Make Default" it just checks "Always check if Firefox is your default browser". If I leave that checked and close and open Firefox the warning that Firefox is not the default always appears. This is causing issues opening links from other software. How do I get Firefox to retain default status? Linux Mint thinks it is the default already.

I've been using SeaMonkey for quite a while now, but I am slowly coming to terms with it being a memory hog, that has some apparent memory leak in it. Despite having 64 GiB of RAM in my desktop, running it for a few days - though with many tabs - can still cause it to crash, sometimes the entire OS.

So I want to migrate the session from SeaMonkey to Firefox, i.e. preserve my tabs. Copying keys3.db and logins.sqlite ensures my passwords are copied over. But copying places.sqlite or sessionstore.json from my SeaMonkey profile to Firefox does not work.

Inspect places.sqlite both generated by Firefox and SeaMonkey, I notice that they do not have the same schema for moz_places, so I wonder if that is upsetting Firefox, and scraps the entire file. I notice that Firefox - while not using sessionstore.json any more - is using another file called sessionstore.jsonlz4, I wonder if I could convert my SeaMonkey sessionstore.json to a sessionstore.jsonlz4 file, that Firefox might be able to load it. However, finding guides on how to generate a jsonlz4 is hard, since most - if not all - are about decoding them.

So I am a bit stumped. How do I migrate my SeaMonkey session to Firefox? I can live with losing my history, and I don't use bookmarks. We are talking about well over 100 tabs, and I'd hate having to enter them manually.

I am using Firefox 92 and SeaMonkey 2.53.8.1 on Fedora 33.

Dear Firefox Team, I have installed Firefox-ESR on my HP Chromebook 11, using linux. I saw it going slow so I searched up stuff. I went to "whatsmybrowser.org", saying Firefox 78. I saw that on an article there is 91 and 95. It is 11/3/21, and no update is showing up which a help article said "On 11/2/21, users can update to Firefox-ESR version 91." I couldn't update, so I am now asking for help. Its also going VERY SLOW which I can barely run scratch, google, and even the homepage. Please give me answers so I can fix the problem. Thanks, cogithedog.

Hi,

I found some discussion related (https://discourse.mozilla.org/t/disable-add-ons-on-specific-website/33693) but no solution yet.

This is imho a big flaw in the privacy of users.

There are trivial cases, for example if I use a YouTube downloader plugin, I obviously want it to monitor my browsing ONLY when I'm on youtube.com...

And there are some critical cases: when I browse my web banking, or when I go on some trading website, I don't want my financial operations to be at risk because of an add-on that is very useful everywhere but on those site.

However, I don't want to exclude all the add-ons for those website too, that would be just too much.

I think there's already a coding base in place, since you can disable each add-on when using private windows. This could be enhanced by having a system of whitelist/blacklist instead. And this feature would actually make more sense than using a private window.

Another way would be to have this feature on per container, instead of per website, than would work well too.

People have different activities, and some requires useful plugins, that are very specific. I mean Keepass's add-on (for example) is useful everywhere, but many add-ons are related to one activity at a time.

For example, if I'm a marketer and want to analyze website, I'll use add-ons for having stats on metadata or keywords or even real time reports from Alexa or from AliExpress, etc...

But when I'm reading my email, I'm not happy those add-ons can see my data.

That would be tedious to disable all those plugins every time I change activity, especially since we are productive humans so obviously we need to alternate those activities doing multitask all the time.

And the private window option is not flexible enough for that kind of multitasking, when containers are.

I hope this helps everyone understand clearly why I think my request is not only a real user need, but also currently a flaw in users privacy since most people will not trade the comfort of their add-ons for some privacy concern they don't always understand...

I know this is some kind of feature request more than ask for help, but https://qsurvey.mozilla.com/s3/FirefoxInput/ is out of service so I don't know where to address my concern here.

Thanks for helping me pushing this idea forward.

I downloaded Firefox Flatpak using the commands in this video. Youtube Video

(Is this even officially supported?)

I noticed it has some enterprise policies and in the settings page it says "your browser is managed by your organization"

Well. When I get more into the settings I saw two active enterprise policies just like this: ///

DisableAppUpdate true DontCheckDefaultBrowser true

///

And couldn't find a way to manage these policies. Is there a way to remove that? I use Linux Debian 10 on Chromebook.

Appreciate some help.

Thanks again.

I have encountered one web site that has several pages that display as graphics instead of text. I have visited this site before several months ago and the display was accurate then. The first image is how it looks now. The second image is how it looked several months ago. I am running Ubuntu 20.04.2 and Firefox 89.0.2. It's very strange that this is the only page that displays this way. I checked the page in Chromium and it displays correctly in that browser. Is this Firefox or quirky html?

Maybe sometime in the past week or so, I began noticing an issue on the New York Times website. I am able to load most articles there normally, but some, marked with a 'live' button for certain types of rapidly updated topics (e.g. election day vote updates or the like) won't load. https://www.nytimes.com/live/2021/11/02/us/election-news?action=click&pgtype=Article&state=default&module=styln-elections-2020®ion=TOP_BANNER&context=election_recirc This is an example of such a page. I click them and just get white space. I normally use a private browser tab for all webpages but it still doesn't load if I use the normal page rather than an in-private window. I would appreciate any help. Let me know if there is any other information I can provide to help people help me. I may need to be walked through some suggestions. I am using version 94 on Linux Mint as of today, and up until today was using whatever the immediately previous version available for Mint was. The described behavior happened on both versions, if that is relevant.

Adblockers, namely ghostery, and other extensions are broken. Some pages that adblockers would allow to load quickly take 'forever' to load - or at least far longer than I'm willing to wait - which is minutes since I try to load them in the background. Also autoplay blocking doesn't seem to work since it constantly tries to load video even though I have autoplay shut off.

Since some time I encounter on more and more sites that on loading, the home page is showed as expected, but only during a fraction of a second. After it a kind of light gray filter layer is added to the screen. It's possible to scroll down the page, but all buttons/links on it are disabled. Using Google Chrome previous described mistake does not occur. Instead a cookie popup appears and after accepting, the normal homepage appears. So it seems that some sites are freezing their home page by the gray overlay in order to force the user to accept/reject the cookies. But when Firefox skips the cookie popup you're always blocked. Do you see a solution for a user of sutch sites?

I need the scrollbar widths to be wider. i have difficulty hitting them with a mouse anymore. Scrolling by hitting the area between the thumb and the (missing) buttons is just as hard, obviously, as it is the same, nearly invisible width. Using the buttons, oh yeah, like I said, they're missing.

I'm not new to this problem. I had this fixed in the past. I would fix it by changing CSS in one or both of two places: userChrome.css, and theming folders for my system. With the last update of FF the devil scrollbars returned, and since then nothing I have tried works. I'm aware of the legacy setting on userChrome.css and set that to true, with no effect.

There's a thread I could share on the Linux Mint forum where somebody asked about this a year ago, and I am not exaggerating, there were at least 10 different things to try.

I'm running FF 93 on Fedora 35 with a Cinnamon desktop. I don't want to do any more Google searches. Can someone point me, please to the DEFINITIVE answer on how to style the scrollbars, at least in my enivironment, and it would be really nice to not only get an answer, but one that will not become defunct when the next version of FF is released.

I installed Chrome, and scrollbars are usable out of the box.

I have a website that uses GaugeMeter.js component. The text of the gauges are out of alignment (as shown in the screenshot) -- which never the case when it is opened with Chrome Browser (i.e. always centered and within the circle/arc).

Strangely, sometime it works well when I started to change the Firefox window width (it is a responsive page).

Anyone came across this? Any idea to solve this?

Recent updates on firefox (firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) seems to have issues with pictures in this webpage webpage :

System Host: Kubuntu 20.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-38-generic

I tried a virtual machine (gnome boxes) with pop os. Firefox works fine with no updates, but after updating to (Firefox - 93.0+build1-0ubuntu0.21.04.1) it shows the same issue on this page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box

Guest: POP OS 21.04 Kernel: 5.11.0-7620-generic

I also tried on Boxes-Manjaro (Firefox 91.0-1) and works fine, then I updated it to 93.0-1 and have issues as well on the page https://docs.kde.org/stable5/en/khelpcenter/fundamentals/ui.html#visualdict-drop-down-box.

Guest: Manjaro KDE 21.1.0 Kernel: 5.13.11-1-MANJARO

On all of this OS, pressing left click on the image solves the problem temporarily, scrolling down or up makes the blinking appear again

My final thoughts are the KDE docs page uses a lot of fancy links which probably is not standard for a general web page which leads on unexpected issues on newer version of Firefox, a workaround would be installing deb packages of Firefox 91 because is stable and trusty and installing new one if needed, a caveat would be updating manually. In any case I would like to know what else would causing
