I've been using firefox's built-in pdf editor and I know it's saved my edits in the past, but the file I'm working on right now never seems to save my annotations and I'm not sure why. I've saved it half a dozen times with the same name as before and changing it, and all I've managed to do is get more copies of the unchanged file on my computer. Does anyone know why this is happening?

Intune ExtensionSettings Policy No Longer Working in Firefox

Hello, in Firefox browser, my organization has always blocked all extensions except for ones we allow through OMA-URI ./Device/Vendor/MSFT/Policy/Config/Firefox~Policy~firefox~Extensions/ExtensionSettings.

About a month ago this stopped working and our end users can now install any extension in the Firefox browser that they choose, without approval, creating a security risk.

When checking in about:policies, there is a policy error: Unable to parse JSON for ExtensionSettings. We have checked with Microsoft Intune support and they verified that the policy looks to be configured and targeted correctly.

Here is a snippet of our JSON, this is a test policy where microsoft support had us remove "about:addons" from the 'install sources'. Both test and production policies are not working.

<enabled/>
<data id="ExtensionSettings" value='
{
    "*": {
        "blocked_install_message": "Contact Service Line",
        "install_sources": ["https://addons.mozilla.org/*"],
        "installation_mode": "blocked",
        "allowed_types": ["extension"]
    },
    "cloudmetering@snowsoftware.com": {
        "installation_mode": "force_installed",
        "install_url": "file:///C:/Program Files/Snow Software/Inventory/Agent/FFCloudmetering.xpi"
    },

        "installation_mode": "force_installed",
        "install_url": "file:///C:/Program Files/Websense/Websense Endpoint/winFFext.xpi"
    },
    "jid1-5AULKXLKGyjuLQ@jetpack": {
        "installation_mode": "allowed"
    },
    "abb@amazon.com": {
        "installation_mode": "allowed"
    },
    "ciscowebexstart1@cisco.com": {
        "installation_mode": "allowed"
    },
    "linkedinConverted@firefox-extension": {
        "installation_mode": "allowed"
    },
    "{7bc53591-5218-45a0-b572-4366979097fd}": {
        "installation_mode": "allowed"
    },
    "queryamoid@kaply.com": {

    },
    "jid1-93WyvpgvxzGATw@jetpack": {
        "installation_mode": "allowed"
    },

Is this a bug? Or something wrong with our configuration? Has firefox changed the requirements of the extensionsettings OMA-URI?

Thanks for any help in advance.

I do my Firefox updates manually. I am currently using version 108.0.2. When I click on "about", it says I should "Update to Partner Removal". It usually tells me to update to the next version that is available. What is Partner Removal? Is it a legitimate update? I can't find anything on the website regarding this. Why does it not tell me to update to version 109?

Thank you for your help.

I'm trying to identify why the GPU RAM is reported as 0 in the report when an expected value should be greater than 0. If the browser is actually treating the GPU as having zero RAM it might be a starting point to investigate why the browser is unresponsive for sometimes up to 30 second when 42 tabs are open and I'm opening a new tab and trying to interact with an existing tab after switching between tabs or windows. Often these are divided between two or three windows grouping tabs as part of a multi monitor workflow while editing Wiki content. The system responsiveness is unaffected and other program do not change in their responsiveness. This occurs while CPU is under load and not under load, but occurs more frequently when under cpu load (low priority compute applications via BOINC for distributed computing). No GPU compute is being used.

Firefox was installed via the Pop!_OS Pop!_Shop. Confusingly the Pop!_Shop lists two Firefox Browsers (one by Mozilla, and one by the Mozilla Corporation) I'm told that these are separate due to their app IDs not matching which prevents the listings from being merged, but it is unclear which is sourced from what repository and how they differ for install as flatpak, deb, etc are not specified in the UI of the Pop!_Shop.

Hello!

Whenever I join a conference/meeting, web version of Teams asks for camera and microphone in one window, e. g. "Allow camera and microphone? yes/no". I can, of course, press No, then press "Yes, continue without audio" in Teams, and then allow microphone, but that's really annoying.

Is it possible for firefox to ask it in two separate dialog window? 1. Do you want to grant Teams access to microphone? - yes 2. Do you want to grant Teams access to camera? - no

I had this Problem several times.

I have set my browser to restore the last Sessen when reopening. Sometimes i am a bit stupid and am not closing my main window with many tabs and my pinned taps for mail, contacts, ... which i regularly need

Aaaand sometimes the "Chronik" (History) for recently closed Windows is empty, nothing opens in the sub menu and i have to manually recreate all my pinned tabs. And this is super annoying.

Today i returned to my pc. I opened firefox and I have seen that only my window with youtube and video streaming has reopened and i failed to restore the important window because nothing appeared in the sub menu.

Maybe you can help me. I like firefok but always restoring my pinned tabs is super annoying.

I am a game developer. I work about 12 hours a day, in Chrome. It is my main browser. When I installed firefox, I was asked to "import" cookies and such. I did. Which has been a terrible headache. All of the bookmarks and everything from Chrome came with it, which I already had in firefox, since I've had it for years. But, I thought since this is a brand new computer that I needed to do that. Fast-forward a couple of weeks and now EVERY time I open up firefox, all 10 million history links are in history.

I use firefox to unwind and watch movies. I don't want 10 million links to work in front of where I left off in binge watching Seinfeld.

I've tried everything and followed instructions and STILL, all history from Chrome shows up in firefox. It is infuriating. AND uninstalling and reinstalling did nothing. The setting is already in the account to import from Chrome to firefox. I've removed addons and extensions as well. Nothing has worked.

I am trying to have Firefox show an "X" on every tab as soon as I hover above it. I followed a certain article and implemented this code:

/* Show Tab Close buttons only when hovered */

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: collapse !important;
 opacity: 0 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]):hover > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 visibility: visible !important;
 opacity: 1 !important;
 transition: all 250ms ease-in-out !important;;

}

  1. tabbrowser-tabs > .tabbrowser-tab:not([pinned="true"]) > .tab-stack > .tab-content > .tab-close-button {
 display: -moz-box !important;

}


This code is however not being implemented no matter how many times I restart Firefox. 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' is set to True The location is userChrome.css is '/home/user1/.mozilla/firefox/yqomjsh9.default-release-1672744596809/chrome/userChrome.css'

What could be the issue? I tried adding executable permissions using "chmod" but that did not change anything.

I have searched the "Knowledge Base" to no avail--no solutions, just others with the same problem. Every day a handful of fresh Trouble Reports pop up on my desktop, even though Firefox is not even running (as verified through the Windows Task Manager). It got so bad, I uninstalled/reinstalled and the problem persists. Otherwise, the browser works fine. My expertise lies outside trying to decipher arcane strings of data buried deep in the bowels of my computer, and frankly I should not have to start hiking up a steep learning curve just to get this to stop. I should add, I have been a fiercely loyal Firefox user since its inception.

I'm not super happy about sharing internal data with the rest of the universe, but have done so anyway in hopes we can get the madness to stop!

Hello,

A few weeks ago something changed in my Firefox browser where popup boxes do not show. For example, if I want to download a file, the pop-up box with the options for downloading do not show. If I want to attach or upload a file, the popup does not show. Even if I want to change a setting in my my Firefox account, I cannot if it requires a popup box.

If I restart my computer (not the browser), the problem goes away, but eventually it happens again.

It is really disruptive. Now I have to do about 60% of my work in another browser. All of my account info, bookmarks, and passwords are saved with my Firefox account, so I would prefer to be able to use Firefox. Any suggestions on how to fix? I should also not--this has persisted despite updating.

Firefox 109 is horrible and I am trying to revert to 108. I have the "Old Firefox Data" file, but have no idea how to get ALL that info back into 108. I am so very upset and frustrated right now! So much wasted time. I cannot believe Mozilla did this to us with no warning!!!!!!!! I have seen some articles on how to get the info back, but I don't really understand them. I am relatively computer-savvy, but I definitely do not understand how all this works. Some "Firefox for Dummies" at this point would be greatly appreciated. I am on a PC using Windows 10 professional 64-bit with automatic updates so it's current.
