hi guys and girls of mozilla,

ive a little issue with a custom homepage i made which i want to use as my new tab page. im on linux and use firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

i set up a autoconfig.cfg file with this code:

// var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

  • set new tab page */

try { Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm"); var newTabURL = "/home/joe/.mozilla/firefox/h75u1z1z.default/startpage/index.html"; AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL; } catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

i also set up a autoconfig.js file with this code:

// First line should be a comment pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);

theyre saved in lib/firefox and lib/firefox/defaults/prefs

i then put firefox to open new tabs with a blank page. now it works like this. when i click open a new tab i get a blank page. but in the urlbar is the file selected. now i only need to press enter and i have my new tab page.

the question now is- how can i force firefox to press enter for me. that it opens the file directly and doesnt need me to press enter.

can u spot any errors in the code i copied from a thread in reddits/r/firefox CSS forum?

or is there a setting i can change which makes it the page opens by itself?

ill add two pics- one when i just opend the new tab and one after i clicked enter

when Firefox is closed and a link is clicked, firefox opens with 2 windows, one with the link location and one with my home page. This happens without fail, so when an email with a link that I want to open is pressed with the app closed. It doesnt happen if Firefox is already open. This has been going on for months, I have reinstalled OSX Catalina to see if that was the problem but to no avail.

Does anyone have any ideas

Crash at startup if Firefox not properly quit before shutdown Debian Buster

Hello,

One of my last Crash ID report : 49e3c347-5deb-4659-b9d1-281b00200514

I experiment this problem on two of my computers. Both are running Debian Buster. If I don't forget to quit Firefox before shutting down my computer, then I believe I won't have problem the next time I switch on my computer and launch Firefox.

However, as most of the time, if I shutdown my computer with Firefox still being open, it seems that Debian Buster doesn't close properly Firefox. In fact, if Firefox was still open when I switch off my computer, I can be sure (100% of the time) that at the next startup, Firefox won't be able to launch the previous session and I'll have to "restore my last tabs".

No other software seem to suffer from the way Debian Buster switch off. Only Firefox.

Thank you for any help one could give me,

Regards, Thatoo

I have a website, a typical three column design, with NAV, MAIN and ASIDE elements. A reader view option appears in Firefox, but ironically, only the ads in my ASIDE element show up when I click it.

The MAIN content uses SUMMARY/DETAILS to group things. Personally, I would think this combination would scream reader view content, yet MAIN is ignored entirely. It has some links, but so does my ASIDE (advert) content.

My ads are simple blurbs and links, no pictures, for my own ebooks, and are not served by a third party, so I can see how they could get picked up and I'm fine with that. What puzzles me is why the MAIN content is being ignored.

The site in question is: https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/ It is marginally safe for work provided you do not click any of the links. No explicit images.

As a test, I even tried changing the SUMMARY/DETAIL of my "What's New" section to ARTICLE followed by an H2 heading. No change in behavior. https://waxphilosophic.sdf.org/erotica/test.html

The HTML passes the W3 validator. I searched Firefox Help / Stack Exchange. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester

Hello,

Sometimes Firefox is having a wrong IPv6 in cache. Using the extension SixOrNot, I can see for rss.forumanalogue.fr the following IPv6 2001:41d0:fecf:8900:216:3eff:fe65:97bc, with the note "Cache". However, this IP corresponds to toot.forumanalogue.fr and the actual IPv6 for rss.forumanalogue.fr is 2001:41d0:fecf:8900:216:3eff:fef1:20a2. In order to temporary fix the issue, I perform a dig and it solves the issue for a while.

It is a rather new issue (few weeks).

What is going on?

FF didn't used to be so slow. It now get really slow and uses a lot of RAM to the extend that my disk is full and I have to shutdown FF.

I do have like 30 tabs open, with one or two Slack-like web apps. However, I'm not using them all at the same time. In the first couple of quantum releases it didn't used to be this slow, never mind pre-quantum performance. Oh and I'm not gonna compare to Chrome or Chromium.

Any help with this? Is it the extensions causing it?

  • Also I never found a proper replacement to legacy Tab Session Manager (the quantum one is no where near as good).

Hi

I am using Firefox on Mac OS Sierra and I manage a number of websites using Joomla. I've had a problem for at least a year whereby Joomla admin keeps on quitting when I'm navigating around the system in Firefox.

I finally gave up using Firefox for this purpose and I always use Google Chrome instead, and I've never had this problem occur in Chrome. I thought it might be related to my specific install, but on a couple of occasions when I've tried to use it on my laptop, which has a pretty pristine installation of FF, the same thing has happened.

However more problems seem to be surfacing over time, principally: 1. I am frequently unable to click a link on a web page until I refresh the page 2. Problems completing online forms. For example I just tried to make a payment transfer in Paypal but was unable to type in the amount. When I logged in with Chrome instead, it worked fine.

Firefox has been my preferred browser for a very long time and I'd like to continue using it as my main browser, but unless I can eliminate these sorts of problems.

I wonder if anyone has experienced similar problems and if they have found a solution to them?

Many thanks Jennie
