Full version of Google Maps (?force=webgl) not working on Firefox 83.0 in Ubuntu 20.04.1

Only very recently (last 1-2 weeks?) I've noticed that Google Maps refuses to open the full version in Firefox. I have FF 83.0 in Ubuntu 20.04.1.

You can (try to) force the full version to load with this URL: https://www.google.com/maps?force=webgl

But if I go to that address, a known message pops up at the bottom: "We’re sorry, only the lite mode of the new Google Maps is available at this time."

Same happens in a private window.

If I open it in Chrome browser in Linux, it loads fine.


I suspect this is a Google issue or choice to limit the functionality, but just want to check if other Linux Firefox users are seeing this??

If not, any suggestions for something to try? Like I said, it only became a thing very recently.


Thank you!

I have constructed a smart bookmark using places query places query like: place:queryType=0&sort=8&domain=mydomain.com

The full URL is something like: https://mydomain.com?model=product&id=282

Now I want to further restrict the results by filtering out certain HTTP GET Parameter values. for example:

  • I want to leave out URLs having model as a parameter in the URL
  • I want to include URLs having 'product' as a value for parameter model

I looked at the documentation and could find anything related to GET parameters. Is this possible?

I'm running Firefox 83.0-2 on a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 on a Dell Precision 7550 laptop, and many webpages have words that look like they are not decoded properly (images below). Everything looks fine when using Chrome. Can anyone think what the issue is?

For the attached Wikipedia page, the pattern looks like it's specific to italicized hyperlinks. I also see it in other places, e.g. any comments in a Python Juypter notebook.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

Running Firefox 83.0 on Ubuntu (20.04). After upgrading Ubuntu to current version, Firefox will not load Yahoo e-mail in regular mode. Just thrashes and does nothing. All other websites working fine.

Tried safe mode, and Yahoo mail loads just fine in safe mode. As such, I turned off hardware acceleration. Did not help. Then disabled the only extension I had on Firefox. Then outright removed extension. Cleared cache. Nothing.

Yahoo mail still loads just fine in safe mode, but simply will not load in regular mode. I can access the yahoo main page, but if I click into yahoo mail from there it doesn't load that way either.

Thanks for any help!!

I've just installed the latest Ubuntu OS on my computer and when starting Firefox i get this problem while trying to play the latest YouTube videos where they say "Your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available. Click here to visit our frequently asked questions about HTML5 video." so I've tried to click on the link but then Firefox said my browser was already up to date. I've then tried to disable my adds on and try in safe mode but that did not help. I've tried installing some adds on, that didn't help either. I've tried uninstalling and installing back Firefox, that didn't work. every media.mediasource config are enabled, that didn't work. and when i try using another browser, the media can be played just fine (i used chromium). So if someone has any idea as to what might be causing this issue i'd be grateful (also, older video seems to be working just fine)

I noticed a certificate in the People tab of the Certificate Manager, and I don't know where it came from.

It says Certificate Name "SomeOrganization" "sp-control-01", email address "root@sp-control-01", Expires on "November 12, 2019".

Where could have this come from. And is it a problem? I worry that it is from some malware site which put a fake certificate on my firefox or something?

Is there a way to see when or how it was added?

Thanks!

I have a website that automatically reloads when visiting. In all browsers the refreshed page is considered the same so when pressing the "back" button you return to previous page. Not on Firefox. The refreshed page becomes new page in history and when you press "back" button nothing happens as you return to the same page and it "refreshes" you forward again. Tried on Ubuntu and Windows 10 (desktop versions).
