I have Firefox 50.1.0 on openSUSE 13.1 Linux (KDE desktop). This is the last update from openSUSE, but is now deprecated by some websites. I am reluctant to download a recent Firefox version without knowing in advance that it will work under SUSE 13.1. I am familiar with 13.1 and reluctant to update that, merely to run a new version of Firefox, as it will create complications with my multi-boot system, which includes a MSDOS 6 partition for legacy software (it took me ages to get GRUB configured to load that reliably and I'm not sure I could do it again).

Please advise what is the latest version of Firefox that will run under my elderly version of Linux and how to obtain and install it (I am not an expert Linux command line user). I am using Firefox 106.0.3 under Windows 7 to send this to you (multi-boot system), because I could not sign up with 50.1.0.

The problem that Google Maps goes black after a few seconds was reported here a couple of times.

I have a variation of the problem in that it appears only when I connect my laptop (Lenovo P15 with Nvidia Quadro RTX 3000) to an external monitor. After connecting, the only way to get Google Maps to work again is to close Firefox and restart it. Closing and reopening the tab or force-reloading is not sufficient.

So, I don't know if this has anything to do with it but I recently tried setting up XEMU and that had some display UI issues for me. I don't know if that has anything to do with it but after I tried setting it up all the text on Firefox is too big. The toolbars, menus, settings etc. look okay but on webpages the text is way too big. I've tried about:config settings, changing my Windows resolution, and other things, but nothing has fixed my issue.

Hi, sometime yesterday or the day before I started noticing that Firefox would hang any time I saved an image to my harddrive. The "hang" lasts 4-6 seconds or so and during that time Firefox is completely unresponsive. You cannot scroll a page, switch to another tab, etc. It does not matter what page/website you attempt to save an image from. They are all experiencing the same hanging delay. I have tried both restarting Firefox and restarting my PC. Neither seems to alleviate this issue. Not sure how to proceed from here.

I logged into my Firefox account on a public computer, however, when I logged off, all of my passwords, open tabs and bookmarks are still showing up on the Firefox browser on this public computer.

Nothing I have tried to remove it from this public computer has worked.

I have tried the following:

  • logged off of my Firefox profile from this public computer
  • unsync from this computer, sync is now off and disabled.
  • Clear ALL history, including cookies, cache, active logins, search....
  • Restarted this public computer several times, including a complete shut down.

And none of it has worked. Currently, when anyone opens Firefox on this public computer, all of my saved tabs will open, even though I'm logged off and unsynced. Also, if anyone goes to Firefox settings on this computer, they will be able to see ALL of my saved passwords on my Firefox account, also, even though I'm logged off and unsynced.

Please help. I need to remove my Firefox account from this public computer without deleting it off my personal laptop.

Thank you.

Today I downloaded the latest Firefox upgrade and got a flaming orange toolbar which is difficult to read. Troubleshooting the issue by browsing the internet, I tried several things I don't remember, and also clicked on the DuckDuckGo privacy tab when that option came up. I was unable to change the color of the tab but then suddenly got a gray screen with all gray tabs. There is no color.

It is not a Microsoft issue, as I have tried rebooting several times and always get a color screen at the reboot. But when the page starts loading, all the icons are gray. I tried a system restore but after a long reboot got a message that the restore was unsuccessful because apparently blocked by my security software (Webroot). The advice was to temporarily disable Webroot but when I go into my apps, the only option is to uninstall and I am hesitant to do that because I don't know if I can quickly reinstall it without having to call Webroot customer service.

At this point I can't figure out what to do. Can you help without my having to reset everything? I always keep a lot of windows open which is one feature I like about Firefox, and really don't want to have to reconstruct all those pages.

I will appreciate your help in solving this problem, which I think is a software issue and possibly related to some things I might have clicked while trying to change the toolbar color.

I was trying to save a pdf to my computer. Can't find a way in the ff fillable pdfs. Directions I found say to click on file link (Apply Button), but I can't find any button like that. I can't find any descriptions of the buttons, either. Some buttons don't have a pop up that says what they do when you point at them.
