Hello folks,

I had 1025 tabs open in FF, in various groups using SimpleTabGroup. Somehow I've managed to get into a situation where, when I start FF, I get just three or four of my most recently used tabs on startup.

I have no idea how to get back to the 1025 tabs I really want, but when I close FF I'm asked whether I want to close 1025 tabs, so hopefully they're still available somehow...

Any advice gratefully received!

Thanks in advance.

NB: Firefox 103.0 (64 bit). Xubuntu Linux.

Submitted a report after all these crashes, and I'm at a loss for how to troubleshoot this. If music isn't playing the browser seems fine, and I haven't changed any extensions between now and the last time I played music successfully without crashes. Guessing maybe a recent Firefox update happened?

Currently running Firefox 108.0 on PopOS 22.04 LTS with GNOME version 42.5 and using Wayland.

Submitted Report ID: bp-109245aa-a75f-4c81-8f9d-fec490230115

Looks like the crash is caused by a SIGSEGV / SEGV_MAPERR according to the report, but I don't know where to even begin looking into a cause of that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I am typing an address or search term in the address bar, something happens to convert fl to "I. For example, as I type netflix.com, it ends up being net"Iix.com. The address still works (I end up on netlfix) but it looks like there is a bug in how the text is rendered in the address bar. I am on Firefox 100.0.2 on openSUSE Tumbleweed

Hello,

I have a question about Firefox extensions that are not maintained anymore but still have the "Recommended" badge. I like several of them, but I am not sure whether I should still trust them (some have not been maintained for years according to Github).

I am very grateful in advance for any assistance on the matter!

Hi, Just installed Ubuntu on a new laptop, with Firefox. No add ons.

Have changed my homepage to www.duckduckgo. Have changed my default search engine to duckduckgo. In about:config my browser.startup.homepage says www.duckduckgo.

Have also changed browser.startup.homepage_override.buildID to www.duckduckgo.com and browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone to www.duckduckgo.com

But STILL, every time I start Firefox, I'm taken to google.com. Please cn someone tell me how to stop google coming up when I start Firefox.

Hi I have been experiencing rejection of access to many legitimate Web Sites. I have attached the error I get even when trying to get to a mozilla web page. This is getting both frustrating and limiting in my desire to support, which I do, Mozilla's strategy of privacy and freedom.

I am using Fedora Linux Version 34 and Firefox Version 100.0.2 64 Bit. I did not experience these problems months ago. I have kept everything up to date as far as I can with my OS limits, if any.

I want to examine what is going on and would like to know where to look. Any help would be appreciated ... Robert

Dropdown lists are not displaying their contents when selected on certain websites, including eBay.

I have tried using Troubleshoot Mode and the dropdowns are still not displaying.

Here's an example where I am seeing this behaviour: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255536264049?var=555488018135

When I select the Resistance Level dropdown, nothing happens. It's the same for any listing that has a dropdown.

This issue occurs in both RPM and Flatpak instances of Firefox.

I have tried the same page in Chromium browser on the same computer and the dropdown functions correctly in that browser.

I have also noted the same behaviour on other websites, such as train booking sites, but I don't have any other examples to share at the moment. It isn't an isolated eBay issue anyway.

Any ideas? Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

I am experiencing problems when using Duolingo, which is highly interactive.

This same problem was highlighted in Version 95.0.2 from a Windows user. The waveforms on System Monitor/ Resources are the same.

I am using Fedora and have 16GB ram. Have just ordered another 16GB ram, but think this problem is so severe that no amount of ram will fix it.

Hi,

is there a config option to prevent the showing of user/pw proposals when opening a website for which user account data is saved? When i'm logging into a website with already saved user data, i get account proposals (as ff saves the data "per domain", say if you have 3 accounts to one website, e.g. a test user, an administrator and a cms administrator, they are all presented where needed content may be...) see pict. I would like to opt out this behavior, as i have more than one website with 2 or more accounts.

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?

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 am using Firefox ESR 102.2.0 version which I updated yesterday. Now when I try to login to my account on "https://myaccount.hdfclife.com/login", the captcha is covered and I can not read it. See the attached file.

It was working fine in the previous esr release 102.1.0. I have tested it with a new profile and captcha is visible in 102.2.0 version.

My query is about the cause of this issue and how can I fix it. I have checked and found that this issue does not appear on other websites. If there is an issue with the profile it should be with other websites which is not the case.

Please help
