Hi.

I have been experiencing audio problems in Fedora's Firefox when gaming in some web sites like <kbhgames.com>. An example happpens in <https://kbhgames.com/game/dragon-ball-advanced-adventure>.

All goes well on a 64-bit Debian Buster's Firefox 78.14.0esr. The problem is about a 64-bit Fedora's Firefox 94.0. And yes, the issue is there even when all permissions are loosen.

Besides optional troubleshooting Information being shared, common specs are below for convenience:

* user agent Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Fedora; Linux x86_64; rv:94.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/94.0; and

* Kernel (according to uname) Linux charger-rt 5.14.18-200.fc34.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Nov 12 16:48:10 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux.

I have my bookmarks toolbar organized by folders. Within the folders, the bookmarks won't stay sorted. I can sort them in the library window, but a few seconds later, as I am watching, they resort themselves seemingly randomly. The same order is shown in the browser sidebar and the library window, and it continues to change every few seconds.

I use Firefox on both my Windows PC and my iPhone, I turned on syncing for a while but turning it off and restarting the browser does not stop this annoying behavior.

In addition, some bookmarks duplicate themselves and I end up with hundreds of the same bookmark. This behavior seems to have ceased when I turned of syncing, maybe this is a second problem?

How can I stop this and keep them sorted and synced, while avoiding the hundreds of duplicated bookmarks?

Typically, when you right-click on a field or link or basically anywhere in a webpage the list of options appears or pops up at the point of the cursor. However, for some time now they all appear in the upper left corner of the Firefox browser.

In the screenshot attached, I performed the right-click from the "Find help..." field. But the list is in the upper left corner. The list appears there regardless of where I right-click on a webpage.

Is there a way to fix this so they appear at the point of the cursor?

Like in

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224759

my twitch tab stutters when i change from a different tab to the twitch tab. I don't have it everytime, it's really inconsistent. It appears that my video moves forward some seconds. Suggestions like in the link didn't helped for me.

I tried: - set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled back to true and restart -> didn't solve the issue -set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to false set network.http.throttle.version to 1, restart,

 set media.suspend-bkgnd-video.enabled to true again and restart -> nope

- set network.http.throttle.version to 0 and restart -> nope.

I'm really helpful for any ideas. Thanks in advance!

For maybe a month or two I have been seeing some strange behavior with Firefox closing after I close a downloaded file. Here are some examples.

Lets say I am checking my email (yahoo) and receive a video file attachment. I launch the attachment which is set ot download and automatically open my player, which is VLC. VLC launches and plays as normal. When I finish, I close VLC and find that a few seconds later my Firefox window or tab also closes.

This is not just with video files and not just from email. Same for doc files or pdf or jpg files. If it downloads and then I open it through Firefox, that tab closes once I close the third-party program.

I also tried turning off the auto-launch and just download the files, but if I start them form the downloads display in Firefox the same issue occurs. If I start explorer and browse to downloads and just launch it from there then there are no such issues.

I did notice that it only closes one tab, so if I have a dummy second tab, when the tab is closed I can use Ctrl+Shift+T to restore the previous window and continue, but it has gotten tedious to do that every time I download a file.

I did check that neither Chrome of Edge do not have such behavior.

System details. Firefox 103, Windows 10 21H2. No known major updates or changes have been made to the system to cause this change. The only extension I have is Ublock Origin, and I have tried disabling it but it did not help the problem.

Good day MOZILLA! Printing doesnt work properly with new update - seems like PDF issues...

When we print .. the preview is fine but it prints like in zoom mode.. only quarter of page... so


1. Seems to be isolated to only certain PDF's ... when printing from the print function within firefox 2. SAVING a print as "PDF" - also one of my team's when she "prints" to a PDF and saves it saves this ZOOMed in mode 3. PRINTING a PDF from WEBSITE - not downloading it, just printing straight from website - im trying to print 3 pages... it zooms in i only get a 1/4 page...of each page (so i only get partial pages that print 4. from google docs i couldnt print an "image" that i added to the DOC... more specifically a LOGO that i added onto the DOC would not print properly... it looked like zoomed in and only printed about a 1/4 of the logo... straight from the DOC... I had to download as a PDF then it printed fine... but i downloaded the PDF from google docs... not originating from the "print" function inside FIREFOX.


My trouble shoots 1. shut everything down turn back on 2. uninstall printer reinstall 3. use a different browser (BOOM EVERYTHING WORKED FINE) 4. so looked at update history for firefox sure enough started right around that time.. 5. so i reverted back to OLD VERSION... (BOOM EVERYTHING IS FINE) 6. Updated to new version again (no working again :(


Ok.. well hopefully we can get an update on this

HI, Had to fill in an encrypted form (here in the UK) from a Canadian Bank to finalise setup of a new account. On completion and attempted submission, Firefox wouldn't allow the IP address 192.168.0.1 (I'm using a D-Link USB G4 dongle) to send. It refused because the IP address is not secure. Is this a problem with the dongle (USB hardware, my G4 provider, or something in my computer, provider, or Firefox settings?

I've got web-extension proxying requests to the local server via nativeMessaging.

If server response with 307 and location "moz-extension://{ext-id}/page.html" browser displays it well. But when I try to refresh the page, error "Access to the file was denied" is occurred. Refreshing in any other cases works well:

 - direct jump to "moz-extension://{ext-id}/page.html"
 - displaying "moz-extension://{ext-id}/page.html" with browser.tabs.update

Such behavior was in several previous versions too, not just in the last 103 and but I didn't tested if it was always like this.

If I doing something wrong or this is browser issue?

Microsoft Excel is no longer listed i Applications as download option. All files downloaded automatically are stored as Microsoft Word files, not just excel files. I can change individual files manually to .xlsx which is a nuisance, but this also happens with Zip files (7Zip) and I am at a loss as to how to change them when they are downloaded as a Word document.

This does not happen on a newer MacBook Pro, but I need it to work with the older version. The older Mac is MacBook Pro 9.2 with MacOS Catalina Version 10.15.7 Firefox is version 103.0

Hi, I first posted this in error in the Discussions section and was pointed to this forum.

Articles from the Washington Post (washingtonpost.com) are not displaying entirely correctly in FF v103.0.1, Mac OS 10.14.6 (Mojave). The headline and body text appears normally, but the lead graphic or photo is just a blurry smear, the Comments button does nothing, comments do not load at all, the Section button doesn't work, the Sign In button doesn't work, and the magnifying-glass Search function doesn't work correctly). Links at the bottom of the page to other articles do lead to the articles themselves (which are also displayed as described above), but the links, normally shown as an image with a headline, just appear as a gray rectangle. Article display worked normally in 102.0.1 and works normally in Chrome. Articles from the New York Times and a couple of other randomly selected periodicals that I read all work normally in 103.0.1.

jscher2000, a Discussions collaborator, suggested that I toggle the Reader View switch. When I do that, the article text displays fine but there are no photos or graphics. In-article links (to sources, other articles, etc.) do work; links to other Washington Post articles produce the same result (very blurry lead photo, no photos at all in the body of the article, Sign In, Section and Comments buttons not working, etc.).

Because the Sign In button on the newly opened article does not work, I can't verify that I am indeed logged in, even though I am logged in on the main washingtonpost.com page.

jscher2000 also suggested that "One possible reason for the content to look blurred on a news site would be if one of your add-ons removed a forced-subscription overlay without cleaning up fully. However, if you are already a subscriber, then that would be unlikely (assuming you are signed in)." I don't quite know what to do about this -- I don't know what the forced-subscription overlay is or where I'd find it or what to do about it. I do have several add-ons installed, mostly to block ads and trackers and promote security. Also, as I mention, I can't verify whether I am still signed in when I open a new article because the new article displays a non-working Sign In button even though I'm signed in on the main page. So I'm kind of stuck on that one.

Everything I describe here was not a problem in FF102.0.1 -- things worked fine. After upgrading to FF103 and finding the problems, I went backward and reinstalled FF102, and after some fumbling around got my old profile installed. Everything worked normally. And everything works normally with the same Web sites and pages in Chrome.

Thanks for any light you can shed on this. In the meantime, I'll go back to FF102.0.1 and stand by for further developments.

Hi there,

I've been using firefox as my main browser and I've created a account and using it all the time for syncing the settings, bookmarks, logins, extensions etc.

BUT due to some unwanted (really irritating) search suggestion were being shown to me by firefox, I had to uninstall firefox from my system.

    • Throughout the process, I'd kept syncing ON always!!

But when I installed firefox again and after loggedin, I'm syncing everything but this is restoring (syncing) very old data which doesn't have my latest bookmarks, extenstions & saved logins!!

How DO I get my all data???

URGENT PLEASE!! THANK YOU

Longtime user of Firefox for online banking bill pay. Latest update broke bill pay by disabling date to pay a bill.

At bank I select vendor to pay, chose calendar to select date and now the cursor should turn to a 'hand icon' when hovering over date. It will not allow me to select a date to pay the bill. The cursor changes to a hand icon if I hover over past dates or day of week but not the date I want to pay the bill.

To make sure it isn't my bank's problem I logged on with Chrome and everything works as normal.

This was tested twice two weeks apart. For now I cannot use Firefox to pay bills.

Hope taking time to post this to Support will result in a response acknowledging problem and solution.

Thanks, Larry
