Hi my OS Linux mint. 20 Running FF 106.0.1 The problem i have is editing large pdf ie multiple pages. I seem to be able to modify 1 page and that saves just fine. But if i try and modify multiple pages of the same pdf no changes get saved.

I also tried print to pdf and that came back with errors. I ended up having to split the pdf into separate pages and do each page individually and then re merge them

Any suggestions please

Sometimes, when I have 4-5 tabs open, I scroll on a page and suddenly everything freezes. The opened pages are news portals I can't switch between pages, I can't close pages Switching to another application in Linux everything works fine. I can close Firefox and restore the previous pages after reopening. No error message. The about:crashes is empty. In gnome-system-monitor firefox-bin looks good

I'm using Firefox 104 on LInux Mint 19. In settings I have downloads set to the Download folder and "always ask" is checked. However, when downloading a file the dialog opens to some random folder that ff creates under /run/user/1000/doc, every time, and every time I have to navigate to where I actually want to put the file otherwise I'd have to go searching deep into the file system to find it. In earlier versions (I still have a copy of ff 71 installed too) The download dialog opens to the download folder and if I save the file elsewhere the next download opens to the folder where saved the last file. This is the behavior that I want in ff 104. How can I set that up?

Hi Support,

Since my Linux Mint System updated Firefox to 103.0.2 certain websites will not play videos seemingly because Firefox or Adblocker is stopping the website from getting/using cookies for adverts.

Websites like YouTube, https://www.gbnews.uk/watchlive and channle4.com will not play or hang at times. The Youtube videos in question are ones that have adverts switched on as videos with no adverts run fine.

I am using Microsoft Edge as well and it play all the videos with no problems.

I am running the Linux Mint 20.3

Thanks Raymond

FFox 101.0.1 (64-bit) running in Linux Mint 20.3

Just installed the latest Mint (clean install) and the latest FFox.

FFox tabs are arranged along the bottom of the window! Tabs only appear below the bookmarks panel on the left. On the right, the browser panel is atop the tabs, so the tabs can't be seen. New tabs can't be seen. There appears to be no setting to control top/bottom tab placement -- of course, I want tabs across the top and visible, please. Help!

Also, above "Preferences" > "General" (about:preferences#general), there's an info box that says "Your browser is being managed by your organization". Help!


Regards, Mark.

Mozilla Firefox for linux Mint 99.0.1 (64 bit) - mint-001


Using Outlook web, when viewing pdf documents, it displays strange symbols (incorrect font sets are probably used).

I point out that using Chrome the problem does not arise.

I also installed the microsoft fonts thinking it might solve the problem I attach illustrative image.

I started using Linux Mint a few months ago, and since then have had issues with opening Firefox on startup. The attached image shows roughly what Firefox does the first time I try to open it after starting my computer. I usually have to close and re-open it 5-10 times before it will launch properly. At this point, I usually manually recover my previous session. Does anybody know of a potential fix to this problem? I have tried updating Firefox and have also tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

Audio becomes crackly after visiting some websites

I am using Mozilla Firefox for Linux Mint, version mint-001 - 1.0, though I have had this same problem for many versions of Firefox on Linux on this particular computer. When visiting duolingo.com and doing the exercises, the sound is incredibly choppy, as if it is extremely low bitrate. What's more, this also corrupts the sound on other websites, for example, bandcamp.com. If I start up Firefox and visit bandcamp.com, the audio is fine, but once I visit duolingo.com it corrupts the sound on bandcamp.com and other sites until I restart Firefox. I suspect this is a driver issue. I have tried in troubleshooting mode, with a different profile etc.

I am a retired person trying to use Firefox on a Linux os computer i OWN. To day, Firefox has become unstable. I see in my settles that an "enterprise" now controls my copy of firefox.

How can I eliminate this obstruction?

Most discussion of this problem discusses Windows os and is useless to me.

My os is LinuxMint 19 (Tara)

Please advise!
