Hi, how can I open a local html file with firefox 86 on android 9? It's like firefox no longer registers itself as a valid program/association to open html files.

What I've tried so far: 1) If I type file:/// in the URL bar, nothing happens. It works on Opera. 2) If I go to a file manager, select an html file, and click "Open with", firefox doesn't show up; Chrome and Opera do. 3) If I go to the android settings > applications > firefox > associations, firefox shows no associated file types at all.

The HTML language isn't only used on the Internet, it's also used for local documents, please allow us to use firefox to view our local html files.

I have a problem with enabling two-step authentication for my Mozilla account. There have been several questions regarding issues with two-step authentication, but none of them applies to my case, so I started another one.

When I try to enable 2SA, there are seemingly no problems. When I scan the QR code and enter the 6-digit security code, I don't get the "invalid two-step authentication code" message. I do get the 8 10-digit recovery codes. After I enter one of them I get a prompt saying "Two-step authentication enabled" (see attachment), but nothing else happens. It seems like the process is stuck here and isn't completed.

I have tried setting 2SA from my profile settings (https://accounts.firefox.com/settings) too, but when I logout and login again, it says Not Set.

I wouldn't normally use 2SA at all if it hasn't been made mandatory for logging into Add-ons (addons.mozilla.org). Now, I'm locked out of my Add-ons account and can't access my extensions!

Introduction So I learned the hard way to never run sudo apt remove python3 on an ubuntu system. I'm running Linuxlite (Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS) on a dell desktop (unsure of the model).

The Problem After looking at some guides and upgrading the operating system, I managed to get most of the fonts to display correctly. Sites with certain kinds of text still appear to be "too bold" (see images).

""What I've tried"" The command actually removed Mozilla, so I had to reinstall it. Updating it also didn't fix the problem. I have messed around with the font settings and nothing changed. It seems that only Mozilla is doing this because the Brave browser displays the fonts correctly. Other than that, I haven't really done all that much. Also the font as I write this is normal.

Thanks for your consideration!

FF profile choice problem on Linux Mint with Claws email

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.]

I know this question has been asked before but I am hoping for an update and maybe to learn something new to try...

I installed the latest Firefox (April 2021) on Ubuntu mate 64 bit.

I use my laptop Touchpad to move the cursor around on web pages. I go to the vertical scroll bar to scroll down the page... I left click on the scroll bar, hold the left button, then start dragging down on the Touchpad but.

Often, when I am on a web page that is long, the scroll bar will jump and skip all the way to the bottom of the screen even though I'm just dragging it down a little and slowly too. Sometimes the scroll bar keeps racing down the page even when I am not dragging the cursor down at all.

I don't notice this behavior in Chrome or Brave or in other Ubuntu mate user interface elements.

This question has been asked before e.g: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1314677

I tried solutions in that question such as going in to about:config and tried... general.smoothScroll.scrollbars.durationMaxMS (changed this from 150 to 75) general.smoothScroll.scrollbars.durationMinMS (changed this from 150 to 50)

I also downgraded to Firefox 82.0.3 but this has not solved the problem either.

Is this a known bug that is being worked on? What else can I try apart from switching back to Brave?

Cheers,

Flex

i have been logged out of some of the sites often. i have a wattpad account and i am constantly logged out of it. in case i try to log back in, i discover my previously saved password doesn't appear. turns out, firefox wouldn't even have it, even after i manually create a new login for the same site. i close the firefox, open it again and the login is gone. i have set firefox to delete my site cookies but have given the right site exceptions. this problem does not stay for other accounts like google or such but only my most recent, such as this. the only add-ons i have is Firefox color, Tab Auto Refresh and Language Tool. it is quite tiring since i visit these sites very often and still be logged out or not have the password hand-in-hand.

While youtube videos is flawless, facebook videos seem to play at 15fps. Audio plays flawlessly though.. It happens with both CentOS and RHEL. I'm using the flatpak version of firefox 88. Tried with safe mode, same issue. Tried with disabled hardware acceleration, same issue. Tried with both HWA disabled and Safe mode, same issue. It's a little weird that videos are flawless in brave browser..

Is there some obscure setting in about:config that I can fiddle with?

Today I updated my Firefox Developer Edition to version 89.0b2 and now I just can not look at this browser anymore, "Inspired new tab design" is taking too much space and now became largest and at the same time least information-dense panel in my entire desktop! I searched around the web for a bit in hopes that I will find a theme or an add-on that will revert this particular change but no luck. I really want to revert to old UI look (at least tabs bar), there should be default theme or option to get back to old style. After some investigation I found userChrome.css but don't really want to install it (maybe this is actually the way of doing this kind of styling). Please help me revert UI design to old one.
