Firefox 110.0 64 bit on Linux Fedora 37. Happens with my default setup and also when running with extensions disabled. Default font. English Language.

If I got to this website https://www.endesaclientes.pt/uPortal2/MyEndesa/index.html#/login, right now, it is in maintenance mode. It's tab label shows up as "Em manutenção..." when it should display "Em manutenção". In case this text field munges my text, see image of the tab, and the letters between "uten" and the final "o" are supposed to be a c with a cedilla and an a with a tilde.

Do I need to change my configuration to add the proper font in tabs?

Hello,

Since recently the bookmark dialog has changed its behaviour, and to worse from my perspective. If I don't do anything for about three seconds, the dialog closes and the bookmark is saved to a place where I most likely don't want it to be saved. Is there a way to get rid of the three second time limit? Thanks!

It's not necessary to read further to answer my question. Bellow I'm going to give some criticism and express frustration about this new feature (or is it a bug?). The criticism is not directed towards the nice people here who give support to users who have problems.

I understand that developers get new ideas and want to put them into practice, but if you change an often used behaviour like this, I don't think it's user friendly to just change the behaviour without asking the user if he want's that behaviour. Personally I don't see how the automatically disappearing dialog helps me (it's very easy to click Esc if I change my mind about bookmarking a page), but I keep experiencing how it makes my browsing experience worse, as I often pause for a moment for example to think what name I'm going to give for the bookmark, or where am I going to place it.

In practice this change has wasted at least an hour of my time (to find an explanation and (in vain) a solution to fix the behaviour), made me annoyed, and based on the comments here and other places, made quite a few other people annoyed too.

Please, when you change the behaviour of Firefox in the future, before changing the behaviour for an individual user, ask him first if he even wants the change. For example show him a dialog where he is told that "we have this new feature where your familiar dialog keeps disappearing every three seconds for no reason so that you get the pleasure of invoking it again...and again...and again. If you want to have that feature, check the box on the left".

[LINUX][NON-WINDOWS][ONLY REPRODUCABLE ON LINUX] Sessionstore variables for OS restart don't do anything

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

Now on Firefox 100.0.1 On earlier versions of Firefox I was able to set a particular url for my home(opening) page. That is still true. However, on past versions I was also able to make *my home page* appear on every tab I opened. On the current edition I get a choice of only Firefox Home Page (default) or Blank page. I cannot get my home page on the new tab. How can I bypass the restrictions of the settings under Home to get my home page on every tab?

That the question I need an answer to. Everything below this is explanation of why I want this and a complaint about how Firefox changes things that I would appreciate being passed on to the developers.

                                                                    <---------------------->

If I choose Firefox Home Page (default), I am *forced* to use the address box to put in my search terms. I have become accustomed to the various search engines with their splash screens - with the nice big search box in the middle of the screen (both horizontally and vertically). It is absolutely unnerving to me to try to type in the box in the middle and have nothing show up there but up above in the address box.

I am a project person in a multi-tasking world, which means whether I like it or not, I have to multitask too. For me to do this successfully, all my tools need to be where I expect and perform as I expect them. Even putting duckduckgo.com in the current home page/new window setting, doesn't get the duckduckgo splash page, but even though I'm not that technically advanced, I found a way of getting it in my home page window. However, the tabs section doesn't offer me an opportunity to put my own choice in.

I wish Firefox would stop tinkering with otherwise minor things. I understand fixing found vulnerabilities. I understand providing new services and technology when they're developed. But why force people to use search and tabs the way Firefox wants them to rather than the way the user is accustomed to.

I have found that Firefox does not play some audio files, for instance on Wikipedia and WaniKani, such as the audio on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhu and https://www.wanikani.com/vocabulary/%E9%9F%B3. When inspecting network activity I can see that an attempt is made to load the audio on Wikipedia, but it does not play. On WaniKani however, no attempt is made. (WaniKani uses .webm for sound, maybe that has something to do with it?) The problem appeared after the update to Firefox 118 and persists in private browsing and troubleshooting mode, but does not occur in GNOME Web.

Sheesh, I tried to append to another question but failed. Just as well... I am using a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS. Every time I put my laptop in standby mode (close the display) then reopen the Firefox window expands beyond the left edge of the computer. I tried some solutions offered on the forum but they did not help. Now when this happens I hit the maximize button and the Firefox display actually shrinks to a small size. That's counterintuitive but... When I hit the maximize button again the Firefox window expands to the correct size. So it's now only a minor annoyance. It seems like there ought to be a simple solution to this but I haven't found it yet.

I just installed Firefox 107.0 on a new installation of Linux. I'm trying to get it set up to work the way I'm accustomed to, and can't figure this out. Instead of having search results show up in the current tab, I want them to open in a new tab, as they always have for me. As this works Just Fine on my desktop, I see no reason that it wouldn't work on my new laptop. If anybody here knows, please let me know.

Basically, a requested relaunch blanked my profile and I can't get it back.

I have a lengthy workaround that will take over an hour to fix from backups, before this incident, but I'd really like to understand what's going on. How can my add-ons, bookmarks, history, logins, etc. be gone? If I did a refresh on purpose, why would my shortcuts remain intact? And, I started by backing up my profile folder to a neutral spot, so why isn't replacing it reversing the changes?

As background: The "about:profiles/Restart With Add-ons disabled" button brings up a small button dialogue to choose "refresh" or default "open." I selected "open" because I didn't want to fix my profile and assumed I would relaunch with only add-ons disabled, so this was a potential point of screw-up. I assume selecting "refresh" would reset application defaults and make a mess exactly like I find myself in now. Shouldn't "Restart with Add-ons disabled/Open" relaunch a temporary and reversible state? Doesn't "refresh" prompt a new default profile?

Considering evidence only, it appears I did something to roast my profile before I backed it up, but that's strange and really out in the weeds, and I'm assuming I wrecked it with my current activity.

The default profile name and path are correct. My shortcut links and labels that I use for a home page are intact but with icons missing, the same appearance as if I deleted the cache; is this detail part of application settings and not profile?

Hi, I have noticed that when using the latest release of Mozilla Firefox on Windows 10 and Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, when I go to ABCnews.go.com and click into a story, there is an autostarting video. But instead of either waiting until I click on it or autostarting normally, it flashes wildly. I have disabled all extensions and the problem persists. Has anyone else encountered this? And more importantly, does anyone have a fix for this issue?

I use Firefox to download, copy, and store WikiSpecies pictures.

Currently, my .../Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8 directory holds what it says are 90,876 items, totalling 11.5 GB. I have plenty of unused space in that directory (over 91 GB), so space is not an issue.

Lately, when I try to install a new picture, I keep getting a warning that the picture is already stored. This MAY be because I am running out of new pictures, but I can't tell.

Is there any capacity limit to a WikiSpecies directory?
