So my problem seems to be different that the others I've seen like this. I have my own HTML files saved on my phone that I was able to open in Firefox before with them rendering correctly and all, but now when I try to open them, they just show the code in text form.

Here's what I tried: Refreshing, disabling AddOns, clearing cookies, cache, you name it; uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox, and rebooting the phone.

The other things to bear in mind is that my file is a genuine HTML file. It doesn't have any crazy rich text markup or have a .txt extension or anything. The file also passes the W3C Markup Validation with no errors and no warnings. Like I said, the files rendered before just fine. There is this HTML viewer that Android comes with that still renders these files. I am also not rooted or anything either. I'm running Android 9.0 "Pie" with Firefox 68.11.0.

I believe this is my fault, in that I must've touched something I shouldn't have, but alas. Is there something that could be right under my nose that I'm missing? Or maybe a value in about:config I have to put in? (My about:config is precisely as it is when it is downloaded fresh from the Play Store.)

Can you help me?

I'm running FF v 68.11.0 on a ZenPad 3-10 running Android 7.0. I was getting intermittent "failed to send" pop-ups which I thought referred to crash reports. I cleared the app cache & data, uninstalled it and installed a fresh copy. When I tried to sign in, the correct password (which I use on my phone & desktop) was ruled incorrect. I double-checked on other 2 devices to make sure. So I followed the instructions to generate a recovery key, used it on the tablet and set a new password. The new password is not recognised on the other 2 devices. Do I need to use the same recovery key to reset passwords on the other 2 devices or should I generate a new key for each device and set the passwords to the same as that used on the tablet? This has been a 3 hour long frustrating exercise. I've used Firefox for almost 20 years accepting the frivolous cosmetic changes because it's been the most stable and secure browser I've seen. I use it exclusively except where the device OS requires another (e.g. Chrome on Android devices). Please help.

I have this continuing request to update passwords and have seen a thread on this but have no duplicate passwords for any account.

The problem has another twist to it. There is a password set in the option that is not the one I have just used to sign in.The password is very long and repeatedly uses the text "padding ****"

Just wonder if anyone else has seen this?

Firefox ESR crashes at watching videos with "alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed"

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

FireFox ESR 68.11.0 - 64bit Windows 8.1

Start typing a URL in the address bar ... a search bar drops down automatically and begins searching. What is the real fix for this annoying and insecure behavior?

There are dozens if not hundreds of search posts on this topic, most are specific to a particular version of FireFox. Developers, I shudder every time I update the program because I know I will be spending hours or days on a new configuration. Apparently, developers have cleverly eliminated the settings that disable this feature.

This drop-down search bar is annoying and unnecessary. A child might find it useful. Simply put, the user should be able to turn it on or off in the "Options" section. We don't like playing with your about.config settings, or adding code. If I type an address in the URL bar, I do not want the URL searched arbitrarily. Nor do I want to see a new pop-up bar. Please make the use of these "features" optional.

Please create a new general information topic "Removing the automatic URL search" and put this topic to rest once and for all. This is an excellent argument for a paid version of FireFox. I would gladly pay for a clean program rather than waste my time tweaking every single new version.

Thank you!
