I am using Firefox Developer Edition in a work environment that only saves directories between weekly restarts by explicitly managed rules. As a result of some missing folders from my weekly restarts, I need to sign in to my Firefox account and enable sync each week. Currently my machine retains the %APPDATA%/Mozilla and %LOCALAPPDATA%/Mozilla directories + children.

What other directories are needed by Firefox Developer Edition in Windows to retain the user profile/syncing, et. al.?

Thank you for your time!

When attempting to enter full screen mode on Firefox for Android, and to get into landscape mode, the browser appears to crash, keeps audio playing, and "entering full screen mode" dialogue pops up. Have to open Firefox again, and can only be viewed in landscape mode while session is continued. To return to non-landscape mode, the app needs to be force stopped, otherwise you only get to see the left one third side of any web page you navigate to. Seems to have started with most recent update. Is there any way to fix?

Hello,

I choose to use FireFox when viewing video content. Only I have this persistent issue when I'm watching/listening a video/podcast and I need to goto a different Tab/Page or use an App or perform a different task, when I return to the tab with paused video it will reload and then the video page will refresh or re-open back to the video list/menu. This causes me to lose my position in the timeline and must find my place again manually. I've noticed this happens after a certain amount of time has passed, not much though, like 60 seconds or so, maybe more. This is frustrating and time consuming and I've noticed this doesn't occur in many chromium based browsers. That said, I strive to avoid google altogether and would rather stick it out with Firefox.

Thank you for reading my question, any advice is appreciated.

This happens only on Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition on one of my PCs and not the other. Firefox is version 113.0.2 (64-bit) and DE is 114.0b9 (64-bit)

Anyone experienced this before?

The following issue may occur if you embed the Amazon Connect Contact Control Panel (CCP) into your agent application and your users access the Amazon Connect CCP using the Firefox web browser with Enhanced Tracking Protection browser setting set to Strict.

An upgrade to Firefox, specifically Firefox non-ESR version 86 released on February 23, 2021, introduced Total Cookie Protection

which modified cookie sharing behavior across sites for users with Enhanced Tracking Protection set to Strict (Firefox defaults to Standard). Users with this specific browser setting and version combination may be unable to access the Amazon Connect CCP when embedded in another application, preventing them from handling contacts.

To prevent impact to your users (agents), we recommend that your users do one of the following:

  1. Confirm (or set) Enhanced Tracking Protection as Standard in their browser settings. Users can do this by following instructions documented here.


  1. Do not upgrade their Firefox browser version to v86 or higher.
  1. Use Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge to access the Amazon Connect CCP.


That's how AWS is blocking firefox users to access the sound in a firefox browser. How to fix that?

I have been using an old version of Firefox (109.0.1). I am not typically using a newer version because of an essential - to me - add-on which hasn't been updated, and which doesn't work in more recent versions.

On macOS Sierra this old version of Firefox crashes. Troubleshooting mode (I was prompted a number of times) and restarting the browser appears to eventually resolve the crash, but finally there is an issue with the memory and the browser doesn't "work."

The reason for the crash given is " MozCrashReason: Failed to load critical module "resource://gre/modules/WebNavigation.jsm" "

The crash report text is reproduced below: __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Summary: Firefox fails to load many sites, and some will kill the entire browser.

I recently updated from Ubuntu 22.10 to 23.04, which included an upgrade to Firefox. I originally had trouble with tab/window dragging operations causing the entire desktop to crash.

Removing the snap and installing from the Firefox maintained PPA fixed this issue, but a number of others remain. (Detail on this part over here on the ubuntu forums if interested)

Now many google sites simply show the loading error for ever and never recover. Some URLS can kill the browser completely. For example, this one from the Mozilla website: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-show-spinning-wheel-never-finish-load The error message is attached.

I am happy to perform more tests and provide more diagnostic if it will help. That same URL works fine from the chromium browser on the same desktop systems,as does every other site I've had issues with.

System details: Ubuntu 23.04 64 bit Firefox 113.0.2 Intel_R_ Client Systems NUC7i7BNH (Intel® Core™ i7-7567U) Intel® Iris® Plus Graphics 650 (Kaby Lake GT3e) (KBL GT3) Gnome 44.0 Wayland WS
