so my firefox-esr 78.6.1esr is loading so long after startup, not like the program is loading, the connection is being loaded up.

i tried with fresh install with firefox, works fine but my profile even with safe mode without addons doesnt work. i know the connection isnt working because of this error JavaScript error: moz-extension://0a5524bc-116e-4a36-a72d-db0a83069847/h0-main.js, line 1: Error: Could not establish connection.

Yesterday I shutdown my PC running Ubuntu 18.04 while Firefox had a full screen window on each of my two monitors. When i turned it on today the window on my right hand monitor opened correctly. However, the window on my left hand monitor had these problems (see the uploaded image) it was not full screen. It was split into a window at the bottom of the screen that showed the expected contents and a black window at the top of the screen that took mouse input. Note the 'KCOM webmail...' popup by the mouse cursor over the upper window. A right click on the desktop had no effect on the left hand monitor, as if something considered the window full screen. After restoring down the window on the right hand monitor a right click on that desktop showed the expected menu. I recovered from the problem by moving the mouse cursor over the black window until the 'Maximise' popup appeared and clicking. The window then became full screen and has behaved correctly since. I have xpdyinfo and xwininfo outputs in case they are useful. I upgraded from Ubuntu 16.04 to 18.04 about 2 weeks ago and have been using Firefox almost daily since then. I have often seen it restart correctly when I restart my PC, although perhaps not with two full screen windows. I don't know if this is a known bug. I hope this information is useful.

Whenever I clear cache, exit firefox and then reopen, there is always a different amount of data in 'cached web content', like 55kb, or 27kb etc.

Why is this? :)

I wondered if it was the firefox homepage storing data in the cache, but when I clear cache, and then open another firefox homepage, it shows 0kb.

I do not know where to post feedback and the feedback link is down so if someone can get this to the Firefox development team, it would be a great help:

1. Feedback is important and to give it a user has to search this website and come here to write it. The help should be in the drop-down menu or menu items where a user can write to development team. This is in Google Chrome. Can be implemented in Firefox. 2. I never understood why title bar and the address bar are separate. They can be merged. The mass horizontal space in title bar is unused forever. Please implement this. 3. The auto-hide/intel-hide of address-bar and title-bar option is not available to the user. Please make it available. This is available for bookmark though and it is working well. 4. If given a chance the user will not want to see the address in the address bar. Most users have utility of copying the address, not much. Can the address be hidden when user do not want to see it? 5. Modern phones have camera not on the top-left edge nowadays, but in top-center. Similarly the tab should open in the center. The minimum development team could do is to provide user with this option that he only can move it to center. Very good improvement this would be. 6. Word-wise feature of Amazon Kindle + Hard-word meaning show on mouse hover features requested. Few extensions available which are not very good in quality and these features should be default. This will save users time to search for new words, will reduce internet traffic. 7. When I save a dark theme in Nightly using customize option. It stays for few seconds and then reverts back to white theme. This could be a bug. Please investigate it. Thanks.

Bug 513418 suggests that private browsing windows are meant to use a dark theme, like Chrome, but this doesn't appear to be the case. Without this it's hard for me to quickly tell the difference between a normal window and a private window.

Is this an intentional change, or is a bug preventing private windows from using a dark theme?

Hello

There is a website that won't go off my URL bar suggestion. I have tried everything I came across searching about this problem : - choosing the entry with the arrows and clicking on the DELETE button (holding SHIFT or not) - removing the website from my history - clicking on "forget this website" in the history - some other things I don't exactly remember

None of this has worked... The website isn't even bookmarked ! When I type "rs" on the search bar, I want rs-online.com and not rs-particuliers.com to appear. You can see the problem is this video : https://youtu.be/Vq5dUpkf534

This is driving me crazy... I use this website (rs-online) every day, and I never use the other one... I want it to get OFF my computer... Sorry if this isn't the right place !! Ask me anything you need to know !

Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) in Ubuntu 18.04

I often load pages with many tabs. These tabs are NOT refreshed when loading, so data may be days old. It's easy to think data is fresh, since Firefox just started, but WRONG !

This wastes lots of time, both in errors and manually restarting each of many tabs.

I need to find how to set Firefox to NOT use old data when it starts. I don't need to refresh every few minutes or hours,, JUST when starting.

HOW do I accomplish this ?!?

Thanks!

For nearly half a year I've had a very strange issue with a tab that simply vanishes. It's taken a while to notice and then figure out the pattern, and here's how it seems to go...

I launch Firefox, which already has many open tabs; it's set to reopen my previous session. Typically I then open a new tab to check my email, do a DuckDuckGo search, or something else (but the activity/website doesn't seem to matter). Then something in my email or my search will inspire me to open a second new tab. All of a sudden when I do that, the first new tab of the session is gone. So for example if I was checking my email and saw something I wanted to research, I'd open a new tab and all of a sudden the email tab is gone.

At least a few times I've then opened a *third* tab to go back to the website I just lost, and suddenly the vanished tab will reappear, and I'd then have duplicate tabs on the same website.

Much more often the vanished tab does not return until *later.* That is, I eventually close Firefox and eventually reopen it, and suddenly there it is again. I believe, but I'm not certain, that this *always* causes the vanished tab to reappear. It's a pain to rely on this fix, though, especially since it can take something like 20 seconds to reload all those tabs.

I think this strange behavior only happens when I first launch Firefox -- in other words, only once per session. I've never noticed it hapening a second time in the same session. I can freely open new tabs without fear of losing another (at least none that are in the visible part of the tab row).

Anyone else have this issue? Or can you recreate it?

I am using the built-in spell-checker. When I right-click on an input field, there is a "Check Spelling" checkbox in the popup menu to enable the spell-checker. Once enabled, another "Languages" item will show up in the popup menu, allowing me to choose from the built-in dictionaries.

This list in huge. Ideally I would prefer if I there was a most recently used list, or I would be able to configure which choices to offer by default, and maybe have an additional menu item to show the rest/all.

Is there any way to handle such use-case? Alternatively, what is the process to raise this as feature request? Would this be a feature worthwhile to do so?

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.
