I'm using Firefox 127.0.2 on Arch Linux. In settings under General>Startup>"Open previous windows and tabs" is not checked. Under about:config browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand is false, and browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash is false

How do I get Firefox to give me a clean slate after restarting my computer?

I changed a global setting in the KDE Breeze theme to always show scrollbar arrows. It works in most windows but not in Firefox, which refuses to display them. Is there a way to fix this? It is a major accessibility problem.

Hi,

I downloaded geckodriver from https://github.com/mozilla/geckodriver/releases

but I would like to verify the integrity of the download. I tried to do this by running gpg --verify geckodriver-v0.34.0-linux-aarch64.tar.gz.asc geckodriver-v0.34.0-linux-aarch64.tar.gz but it looks like the key used to sign the release has not been imported on my system. Where can I find this key used to sign the geckodriver?

Kind Regards, Chandra

Hi, I have a disaster situation. I backed up my profile and then I wiped my computer running Ubuntu 20.04. I replaced it with Ubuntu 24.04. Now my profile seems to not be compatible with the Firefox installation on Ubuntu 24.04.

I followed this official instructions: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

I put my old profile in the ~/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox/ folder and I set the correct values in profiles.ini. But sadly when I start Firefox all my passwords, extensions and history are not there. I lost everything.

I'm super desperate. Please tell me I can fix this somehow. Why is the official documentation lying?

Hi, To who it may concern, a big thank you. I am a longtime Linux Firefox user. I had a secondary password, but somehow it has been deleted. I have changed my primary password and I have full access to Gmail, Youtube and other Google pages. My email address has always been the same for many years. It is recognised by Firefox when I type "My account on Firefox" though I am not allowed to enter another secondary email address.

I am almost 80 and not very computer literate.Kind regards,

Patrick Van Niekerk.

Firefox has long been my browser of choice on all platforms. I am switching from Windows to Linux and have recently found problems playing some videos on the Linux version of Foxfire. I don’t know if it’s a matter of having the right codec or something else. The videos play with Chromium on Linux and with Firefox on my Android smartphone. My Linux laptop is running version 128.0 of Firefox for Ubuntu version 24.0.0. Here are two offending links. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkZuGil6U4w https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxVcDPtDnjM

Please advise how to disable automatic updates on Firefox running on Linux Kubuntu. Solutions posted on mozilla.org do not work because stated disable options are not available(see screenshot). I have set app.auto.update to false in about:config but this does not disable updates. I have been repeatedly advised not to disable updates so I am aware of the so called risk. I am very tired of every update breaking a reliable browser and having to repair/fix/workaround each and every time. Please provide a viable solution.

My browser keeps crashing like the system would have a defective RAM module witch has just been changed with a new one. I have created a new browser session and cleaned cache and cookies. The crash catch you randomly and then get fixated on a web page.... if i open amazon it crashes, then if i restart the browser it crashes again...like it would do when filling a defective RAM and finding a broken byte. I tested it for 24 hours from a live usb of memtest86+ and i got no error.

The system continues to tell me that my original email address is the primary address. That address has been hacked and I need to remove it and replace it. I am then told I need to add a secondary address before I can change. I go into the area where this is done and when I press add it says that the new address is already there. How do I get rid of the hacked address and replace it with the new one (which Mozilla does actually recognize!)?

The "Triage Manager" for Mozilla Refuses to assign anyone to a seven year old open problem

I need to go over the head of the Mozilla Triage manager who has left https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1406865 open without a resolution for **seven years**. How do I do that? This is a bug reported in Firefox 57 and **still** not fixed in Firefox 125. I cannot find any support category anywhere in the Mozilla website that covers appealing a decision by one of their employees. The last comment from this uncooperative indivisual is "But given we support it on macOS and Windows yeah, it seems not very objectionable." Who is this **clerk** to override the fact that a number of customers very much find this "objectionable". I cannot find anything on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contact/ that addresses this issue. I cannot find even a surface mail address for Mozilla. For example my complaint has nothing to do with any of the following:

   I’m having problems with using Firefox
   I want to donate to Mozilla
   I have questions about using Mozilla’s trademarks
   I’d like to report misuse of a Mozilla trademark
   I want to hold an event in a Mozilla space
   I want Mozilla to sponsor my event
   I’d like permission to use a Mozilla logo
   I’m interested in Pocket’s sponsored content on Firefox
   I’m a member of the Press and have a question for Mozilla

Yes I am having a problem with Firefox, but the clerk responsible has, through sitting on this issue for **seven years**, basically told the entire community that he doesn't give a reservoir.

In particular I feel this unacceptable behaviour should be brought to the attention of senior management, but there are no contacts for anybody in senior management.

The video from most websites plays out of sequence. It appears that approximately every one second plays its frames in reverse order. This occurs with most video streaming services and major sites. For example, all Amazon, Sam's Club, Walmart and other website product videos. Occasionally, Amazon product videos just say not compatible. However, YouTube videos with very rare excepts play fine in Firefox. Those problem sites play the videos fine under Edge for Linux. But, I would much rather use Firefox. I'm sure this a codec related issue. Possibly related to the NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 video card in this computer running openSUSE 15.5. But after much searching, I'm at a loss on how to resolve the problem.
