Hi,

For some unknown reason, Firefox does not prompt me for the master password. This started happening after I opened quite a lot of tabs few weeks back. The prompt used to pop up on Firefox start up. But now it doesn't. I would have to do something to manually pop up the prompt. By something I mean, trying to save a password on a site, go to login page of a site, click on view logins etc. I'm not sure why this odd behavior is been shown. Any clues on how I could debug the issue?

Hi! Chrome based browsers (like chromium or Vivaldi) permit to obtain 96KHz or even 192KHz float 32bit audio output. Firefox stuck at float32le 48KHz. This is not sufficient for me. i have a Linux LinuxMint 20 on a STRIX Z270G audio chip @ 96KHz and headsets like Sennheiser HD650 and GRADO RS1e so able to perfectly perceive the effects of harmonics up to frequency my chip can produce (96KHz band pass).

Question: Is possible in Firefox 78 for Linux to change the max frequency from 48KHz to 96KHz maintaining the float32le setup?

Thank you to all advices!

Hello. From time to time, when using firefox I find that firefox-bin process uses very high cpu process (on top command output it shows even more that 100% (i don't understand those specs)) It doesen't seem related to any specific website. I close tabs one by one and it remains the same. Even when closing firefox window, firefox-bin remains using 100% cpu for about 1 minute or so. Then a crash message appears, and I click send report.

Any suggestions accepted. cheers. Firefox 77.0.1 MX Linux 18.3

Whenever I search for a new subject(not pre-searched) no results are shown and I get the message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site". This happens only when I use Duckduckgo to search. I have updated firefox to the latest version, used safe mode, and cleared all my browsing history but none of them have seemed to work. I have been facing this problem since 2 days now and initially I used to get the error message "PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR". Thank you.

Show me how to find the bookmark manager

I've seen this question from two years ago, but the answer is not valid (any more).

I had several machines with different purposes and when I got a Firefox account, I signed them all in. Now the bookmarks are chaotic, and I want to combine them in a more rational way. I need a real manager that allows me to do this. I'm sure there is one, but I cannot find it.

Currently FF 77.0.1, according to help.

If anyone knows of an extension that handles this on latest Firefox Beta let me know. Thank you.

Hi all, I just changed to Firefox ESR since some websites are not being correctly displayed in the "normal" firefox, this version works much better but I don't like that when I click in the address bar I have to double-click to select the URL, not like in the "normal" firefox, so, I just want to know if there is a way to change to when I click it automatically the URL gets selected.

Hello, I am a Firefox user for a long time (before 1.0). I was seeing how the user base is going down lately. I wondered why. Now, I start to understand.

I've been using Linux for more than 20 years. Several flavors. Now, I use Sabayon and KDE Neon. I understand it's not a big user base for Linux in the world, for desktop.

Still, in the last years, I have had a BIG problem using Firefox under Linux, regardless the theme I chose, the Linux distribution, or its base distribution. The radio and the check boxes. Can't see any if the site does not have some override of the common controls. Can't filter when shopping, can't set addresses, can't pay.

I've found many people complaining about. The solutions provided were to try finding some theme or hack the site pages by inspecting elements and changing styles there.

Are you serious? Do you think the Linux users are all IT web specialists? How do you expect people adopt Firefox back? Even my son simply switched to Chrome due to this. Because it's practical.

I have tried so many things, none worked so far.

You blew your knee by changing the plugins API, that disturbed everybody's productivity, but people were patient, waited many years to have their stuff back, still not there yet. But missing such basic feature as common controls makes it unusable.

You must do something, as Google does, as Microsoft does, even Opera.

It seems most answers to this question tell you to clear browsing data and the autofill entries. That's not what I want.

Say you have a form that contains previous data, whether manually entered or autofilled. You want to use autofill for the entire form, but by default it doesn't overwrite fields with entries. How do I clear the form and start fresh so autofill can do its job?

Using Firefox on Linus Mint

Before the latest "upgrade" there were two options relating to tabs "Close Tabs To The Right" and "Close Other Tabs" Now there is an options marked "Close Multiples Tables" which means I have to make an extra, painful and unneccesary click before being able to close tabs.

Is there a way to return it to how it should be?

I looked at the article about keyboard shortcuts, but it didn't say if there was a way to disable any of them. It seems often when I'm typing, instead of hitting the backspace key, I accidentally hit the F12 and it pops into development mode. I won't be doing any development in the near future (or probably any time) so I'd like to disable that one for convenience. Thanks

I have been using firefox for years and am very happy with it. I have a Dell optiplex 7010 desktop. I am running Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I do not have a firewall turned on. Apparently, my desktop browser was updated to Firefox 78.0.1 (64-bit) on 7-1-2020. Since that time, I have been unable to access any websites from Firefox including mozilla.org. I am connected through WiFi. After downloading the Opera browser I have been able to access any website with no problems. I read community troubleshooting on this issue and tried various fixes including turning off IPv6. I read the community article about turning off my personal firewall. I was unaware of using any firewall so I installed Gufw Firewall 18.04.0. Running this program shows my firewall status is "OFF". I checked my AT&T modem and could not find any firewall settings that specifically mentioned Firefox. I would like to continue using Firefox since I use it on my phone and laptop also use it.

My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1520 running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 64 bit. It also accesses the internet through the same WiFi. It currently has no problems loading web sites with Firefox version 78.0.1

Please help.

Just last night I updated Firefox to version 78.0.1 on Fedora. I cleared all my history. I had to sign in to Firefox account again for some reason.

And this afternoon I discovered that my Logins and Passwords has gone empty. I use master a password and that is still in effect, and my sync settings includes logins and passwords. I've done this many times--signed in to my Firefox account, set up a master password and I'd see all my saved passwords there after doing a fresh install of my operating system. I don't know what happened now.

I used to take print to study contents offline and I almost always use Mozilla as a browser. Recently I noticed that I was unable to print a full page in a simple website. Understandable that firefox team has been busy working upon the print bugs, but the page and the website I am referring to is Purely HTML and CSS; and for some reason firefox cuts out the rest of the pages from print except for the first.(i.e) to say it prints only the top part of the page..

Though I work with Ubuntu I have crosschecked with Win8.1 and TOR version of firefox which had the same shortcoming, with the website I was referring to. However other browsers such as the Safari and Chrome seem to do fine with this regard. Kindly check for yourselves and let me know if I am going wrong somewhere. Also please Avoid recommending any add ons to accomplish the task at hand.

The thing is the website I was referring to is of very simple make and may help the team to shoot the bug if any, with an easier test case such as this.

With love and Thanks
