Firefox 46.01 under Ubuntu 16.04 In this website: https://www.onlinemictest.com/webcam-test Or any other website that uses the webcam I get the error message: Camera not authorized. Please check your media permissions settings. Permissions are ok (set to allow after prompted), but still no video - cheesse works ok and properly shows video. The website asks for permission to share the camera as expected, and it is set to ALLOW. Would appreciate your help. Best, Marcelo

I've created a website in php5. During development I used Firefox 46.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04LTS. The session variables are nicely stored en can be read.

Now I'm starting to test on different browsers, my Windows 10 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 doesn't store the session variables. Chrome and Edge do store the session variables on my Windows 10 pc. Also on a win 8.1 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 the session variables are not stored.

Any idea what could be the cause?

What I typically do in a php script:

?>

In order to reload the page, I use javascript. "location.reload();" When commenting that line out and refresh the page, the session variables are available.

Any idea on how to solve this issue?

Every time I start Firefox it starts displaying a "You should restart firefox now to install updates" message to the left of the location bar. I checked all plugins, all addons - nothing is updated or needs updating.

OS is Ubuntu and Firefox is installed from a tar.gz When I use Firefox version from repos, I don't see such an error.

Before the latest update on 9/17/18, I was able to use the arrow keys to move the page up and down with no issues other than occasionally I had to click somewhere on the page to get the arrows to start working. Now, I don't even know how to describe it. It's broken. I arrow down and it adds a cursor at the end of text, but you can't type, then all of a sudden it jumps to the bottom of the page and I can't arrow back up either. It just jumps all over the page. wth??? It's even doing it on this page. It's frustrating because I primarily use the arrow keys to navigate without a mouse. I've restarted FF and my Ubuntu OS. Any insight would be appreciated.

Linux with TB 60 and newer - how to add google to search list!

This is the solution to get Google Search working in TB 60 and newer - I followed the exact instruction here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-search-engine-open-search#thunderbird:linux:tb60

But Google never showed up in the search list and the search.json.mozlz4 just gets regenerated when TB starts.


So for linux users, shut down Thunderbird and go to your home folder and find .thunderbird. Open it and open the profile folder - it may be named something like /home/xx/.thunderbird/xxxxxxxx.default/ Where the xx is your username and xxxxxxxx.default is the profile folder.

Now delete search.json.mozlz4

Then rightclick on http://bwinton.latte.ca/Work/google.xml. Save link as a file called google.xml

Then open Thunar or your favorite filemanager in sudo mode and copy the google.xml to

/usr/lib/thunderbird/distribution/searchplugins/common/


Start Thunderbird and Google should now be in the list of search engines. It work on my system which run TB 60.2.1 on Peach OSI TW 16.04 LTS (which is a modified version of Xubuntu - alot more stable).


A pitty that mozilla can't figure out to update their own solutions, when they make major changes to their products!


Hope this help someone else, and you then help other people!

I have a day-old backup of sessionstore.js but apparently 64 doesn't use that file anymore. I found 64 installed in ~/.mozilla/firefox/<random_number> but no sessionstore.js. So how do I find my tabs? I had probably 50 tabs in each desktop.

Hi I mean one of these (image below) ? The goal is to prevent reloading the tabs among ones that were openned in a previous session and I don't need anymore (and by the way FF won't update my history as not needed) - Even if I'd didn't use "Startup/Restore last session", this would be a great feature to be able to close with right-click any tabs whose names in shown in the drop list when so many tabs are openned that the last ones can't fit in the width of the window (actually tabs "toolbar"). Thanks you for this great browser. I asked this 2 years ago if there's a way.

Problem: FIrefox suddenly quit working. Firefox refuses to load anything including local, external, and firefox config pages. When attempting to go to a webpage or config page by pressing the enter button nothing happens and the page is entirely blank. The developer console does not open. After about 2 minutes of not doing anything, it crashes. Issue persists past re-installs. I am unable to submit a bug report as normal(I only have pending crash reports), as when I attempted, it said "something unexpected happened" and then the bug report itself crashes.

Chrome works normally as expected.

Troubleshooting steps taken:

  • Refresh and safe mode
  • Launched in incognito
  • apt-get purge
  • Removing profile
  • removing .mozilla, .adobe, .macromedia, /etc/firefox, firefox-extensions, .cache
  • installing nightly, beta, reinstalled multiple times.

Current workaround: Using chrome

Machine information Ubuntu 20.04.2 Kernel Version: 5.4.0-66-generic

Firefox 87.0 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 20.10 is currently unusable as it won't open anything.

  • Firefox opens with no page loaded.
  • Clicking the single "getting started" bookmark does nothing.
  • Entering a search term in the address bar and pressing 'enter' changes the url in the address bar but nothing is loaded and the page remains blank. There is no indication that anything is loading.
  • Entering a url, such as "www.youtube.com", and pressing "enter" does nothing. There is no indication that anything is loading.
  • Opening the menu by clicking on the burger icon, then on "preferences" does nothing except make the menu disappear (same with most of the options in the menu).

In the browser console I see some errors and no request info (see screenshot).

I've tried `sudo apt purge firefox` then installing again, which didn't help. The problem started with ubuntu 20.04 (I only updated to 20.10 to see if it might resolve this problem).

I've tried the "refresh firefox" option, starting in safe mode, and clearing the startup cache, which didn't help.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

First of all, this doesn't affect the Windows version, only the Linux version (didn't test on OSX). The problem is as follows: 1. Firefox installs an update in the background while still in use. 2. I open a new tab. 3. That's it. After an update finishes downloading, new tabs refuse to open, some citing a crash (if opened by active tabs, such as YouTube), most stating the browser needs to restart. It is not a networking problem, since already active tabs function normally, even YouTube playlists function as intended (despite the fact that they nominally refresh the entire page); and, as mentioned, the browser itself says it needs to restart. Q1: Is this intended behaviour? If so, Q2a: what purpose does it serve? If not, Q2b: what causes it? Additionally, after an update, Firefox (again, only for Linux) has rendering problems when first booted up, causing tiling, and needing Alt+f4 to close. I may revisit this issue later in a separate thread.
