When I right click, a left click is immediately fired which causes the first item to be selected. This is frustrating because the menu closes immediately.

Not sure what's going on. I tried downgrading Firefox and I tried a fresh profile. Nothing seemed to resolve this.

Initially I thought this was maybe a GTK3 issue, but I does not occur any other GTK3 application.

Any help?

Thank, Disco-Dave

I have noticed now in Firefox 60.0 on Linux, that I'm now unable to delete cookies.

If I'm using Facebook for example, then exit, I have always been able to go to the cookies and remove the Facebook cookie. However, even though it is not showing (Under Prefs, Privacy & Security / Manage data), the cookie is obviously still there, as when I then go to the FB site, I'm already logged in.

No cookies at all are showing under Firefox.

I am attempting to migrate my bookmarks from an old profile to my new Firefox which is an Ubuntu snap install. I did not make a backup I can use. The instructions I am following are published here:

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Transferring_data_to_a_new_profile_-_Firefox

I copied the following files from my old profile and pasted them to overwrite those in the new profile. But the bookmarks are not visible in my new FF.

cert8.db (cert9.db in Firefox 58 and above) content-prefs.sqlite cookies.sqlite formhistory.sqlite key3.db (key4.db in Firefox 58 and above) permissions.sqlite places.sqlite favicons.sqlite (Firefox 55 and above) webappsstore.sqlite

The following additional files mentioned in the above article were not present in my old profile, and I am uncertain why missing , or if they are required.

chromeappsstore.sqlite logins.json (Firefox 32 and above) mimeTypes.rdf persdict.dat signons.sqlite (Firefox 31 and below) signons3.txt (if exists)

When the above file transfer produced no result, I checked places.sqlite file within the old profile and found this (screenshot). I am not sure how to interpret it.

https://app.box.com/s/s1ifii15w8ut3uvzs371izyvyt18dbfb

I also checked all the other .sqlite files listed above and there is no evidence of a bookmark list.

Here is the only part of prefs.js that references places.sqlite in the new FF install.

user_pref("signon.importedFromSqlite", true); user_pref("storage.vacuum.last.index", 1); user_pref("storage.vacuum.last.places.sqlite", 1538270926);

Can someone please suggest a solution?

Nothing seems to work. An appropriate plugin seems to be installed and, after downloading the latest version from Adobe, a retry informed me that Flash was already installed. Firefox does not agree. The download from Adobe informs me that upgrading is a 3-stage process but takes me no further than stage 1. This used to be a doddle under XP. You just found and ran the executable file in the Download folder. I can find no executable files in my Download folder. My current Linux version is 18.3 Sylvia. I am sure that this used to be handled automatically by Firefox updates in previous Mint versions. Now, however, it doesn't seem to matter what I try - whether using the Mint's Software function or going onto Adobe's download page. I always seem to finish up in the same place with the computer just looking at me and declaring that Flash is already installed. The Firefox Addons list includes Flash but nothing I do will get it working.

In previous versions of Firefox I had the option to edit the URL of a bookmark right after creating a bookmark with Ctrl-D. Now, I get the bookmark dialog as in the attached image.

And although that [v] is ticked for the option "Show editor when saving", I see no editor showing up. Above all, I wish I'd be able to edit the URL of a bookmark I just added.

I had set the about:config settings after 75 came out to fix the address bar. Today I got 77.0.1 and now the address bar seems broken again. When I mouse over it, there is no longer a down arrow to click and show my common sites. If I click in the bar and then delete everything, the list of common sites appears. If I click away and click back into the blank address bar, now I have to hit the down arrow to get the list to appear. I need a way to get the down arrow back so the address bar works as expected.

These config options are all set to false:

   browser.urlbar.openViewOnFocus
   browser.urlbar.update1
   browser.urlbar.update1.interventions
   browser.urlbar.update1.searchTips
   browser.urlbar.update1.view.stripHttps

Firefox has a feature to remember my passwords, which is very useful. However, some sites mess with this so they won't save my passwords. In some cases these sites turn "autocomplete" off for the password field in their html; in other cases they appear to use some kind of javascript magic to stop me from saving my passwords.

First of all, why should websites try to stop me from saving my password? Do they really think its more secure if people have to write their passwords on stickynotes on their monitor to remember them--or worse, use the same password on all sites? I what way is it conceivably more secure? In any case it's MY business how I manage my passwords--not theirs!

I have had some success in battling evil sites that try to stop my from saving my passwords by editing the nsLoginManager.js file. But this is not convenient as I must keep doing this every time firefox gets upgraded, and it doesn't work for some sites like American Express which I think use some sort of javascript to stop me from doing what I want.

So my question is, how can I effectively make firefox remember ALL the passwords I want, when _I_ want to--and NOT obey evil websites that just want to practice CYA while actually making me LESS secure?

HOWEVER - I get a report of "This Connection is Untrusted"

...and to add insult to injury, there is no button option to add an exception. Just the "get me out of here"

This is Firefox version 20 - I just updated this morning - on Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit. Connecting through a new Netgear router that I installed this afternoon ... so I can't tell exactly what the heck is going on.

THIS IS URGENT AS NOW I CAN'T ACCESS ANY OF MY GOOGLE SERVICES.


Technical Details

       accounts.google.com uses an invalid security certificate.

The certificate is not trusted because it is self-signed. The certificate is only valid for www.routerlogin.net

I want to extract Omni.ja. None of the zip programs are working, the program that linked in

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/About_omni.ja_(formerly_omni.jar)

Is a visual basic program which requires a control that does not install in Windows 8. I tried many zip programs such as Winzip, winrar, 7Zip, Peazip and many others to extract it but none of them can even open it. This file currently using a nonstandard compressing zip format which has header infront of file instead of back of file.

Reason to extract? firstly because I like to! second because there is a backdoor is installing with firefox which is called loop and I want to remove it from my installations. Now you might say "loop" is not a backdoor and it is a very useful sweet candy and still I won't listen. You give me your IP and prove it to you that it is more useful to me than you!

Anyway, back to my question, What tool I can use to extract this file.

Repeated crashes, every time opened onpoint.wbur.org . Have exotic installation in Ubuntu 10.4.1, won't do regular install so unpacked new download in Download folder, made a link, and it finds the giant 550Mb profile in main Mozilla. OS somehow knows where it is, so updates or latest security fixes do work automatically. Crashed then with trying to play a VICE award video, got more common, now crashing often. Safe mode didn't seem to help. Either can unpack new 37.0.2 download in a different folder, see how that works, or do that "Refresh Firefox" button which creates a new Profile (I guess) and saves your data.. but then I will never know if I can delete the old one. Have very little space on this installation 7.5GB, 800MB max, and can't use too much more space.

Ubuntu Installation also it at very end of HD, and lappy suffered very hard drop without case recently. Also in hunted a movie torrent, got whacked with some virus (Linux DOES have viruses) that reset flash card drive name, almost trashed 100gb Data partition (unreadable till a couple of reboots), and messed up the BitTransmission torrent client, so may still have it, though ClamAV doesn't find anything. Is there online scanner for Ubuntu???

I am having a difficult time with this web site, and have already tried to submit this question. But I was told it was rejected. So I will try one more time.

I am running Firefox 65.0.1 in Linux Mint 19.1 on a Dell Optiplex desktop PC.

I have Firefox configured to always open in private mode: browser.privatebrowsing.autostart=true

I also have it configured to show my homepage at startup: browser.startup.page=1

However, when I launch Firefox, I am presented with the "about:privatebrowsing" page, and my homepage is nowhere to be found.

Is there someway I can keep Firefox from showing the "about:privatebrowsing" page, and instead show me my homepage?

Thanks for any guidance you can provide!
