Hello,

I’m using firefox-dev under debian linux and since last updates my cron script that was supposed to open a certain url in firefox at a regular schedule stopped working.

I do export DISPLAY=:0 than run firefox $url and all was fine previously but now I always received a message : “Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.”

You can easily reproduce by running : sudo -u $(whoami) /path/to/firefox-dev/firefox https://www.google.com

Can somebody explain what is checked by firefox and why it consider it is not responding instead of just open my url in a new tab ?

Hi there,

I've just downloaded the dev version of Firefox, and for some reason some of the text defaults to italics; I can't see where to change this. On all other browsers, this text is not italic.

Does anyone have an explanation / solution?

The non-italic text in the picture attached is the 'good text' which accurately reflects itself accross browsers and devices. The italic text is the 'bad text' that I want to change for consistency.

Thanks!

I have no idea what's happened with this update, but it is beyond broken. Even in troubleshooting mode with everything turned off, pages take forever to load, everything is terribly slow, it's cyclical like something is updating in the background, but it's happening on every single page and it's taken any productivity to a standstill. It has only started happening with this update. Didn't happen prior to this. It's obviously not my extensions since they're all disabled in troubleshooting mode, there's nothing out of the ordinary showing in the task manager, I thought it might be when my Gmail tab updates, but even with that tab closed, it's still ongoing. I can't work like this. Is there a way to revert to the previous iteration until the next update comes through?

Sometimes when loading a page, and the page is slow to respond, I will see a strange situation: The page is totally blank (the F12 tool does not display page content). The refresh button is gray (disabled), or sometimes although the refresh button enabled, the url textbox is "about:blank", which means I cannot actually reload the page I want to read. I have to re-navigate to the page through the link in the previous link. I'm not sure whether I got across. I hope the issue can be fixed.

How can I exclude `http://domain.com` part from URL column? The urls I'm working with look like this `http://domain.com/path/to/resource` `http://domain.com/another/path/to/resource` So `http://domain.com` part takes too much space in URL column, but displaying just File column is not informative in this case.

with multiple monitors come multiple windows. and sometimes you need to close FF entirely. by habit and by design, every other application has the 'X' button in the top right close the APPLICATION. in FF, this only closes the current WINDOW (NOT TAB!!), which, if you have 2 or 3 (one for each monitor), leads to a lot of cursing as your multi-tab, multi-window layout is now borked. for single window users, this is not something that would ever concern them, but us multi-monitor, multi-window users, it would be nice to be able to have that big 'X' kill the application entirely instead of killing just the window. so is there a way to remap this?

TL;DR: Can the top right 'X' button be remapped to Exit instead of Close Window?

Is there a way to use a list of sites you want to block with the manage exceptions option in settings. Several times now I have gone to the option and found it empty of entries, having to replace the sites I need to add one at a time blocking and reopening the option for each entry. Two things would be of great help: 1. find out how the manage exceptions option is being cleaned out and stop that action from happing 2. I have prepaired a text file listing the sites that I feel I don't want cookies from, a way to enter that list as a group (batch) into the manage exception blocking setting at least would make the work faster.

I enter the list to my host file also block them with my firewall witch dose some good on the house side of the blocking but little on the browser side.

anyhow any of this you can help with would be great. Don Smith smitm13@msn.com

Any chromium-based browser opens links from google search result in a new tab directly, but firefox (and Tor too) opens them with an address as "https://www.google.com/url?sa=..." and further redirects to actual link's address.

Sample: firefox: 1. Search in google: funny cats 2. Click cmd+mouse on result #3 with link "www.funnyawesomecats.com" 3. New tab opens with address like "https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=..." 4. After some delay page redirects to actual link "www.funnyawesomecats.com"

In contrast, any Chromium browser opens links in a new tab directly without intermediate redirection. Also, Firefox open links from a google search directly (i.e. without any issue) only on the current search page, but not on a new tab.

I'm trying to customize colors of Firefox developer edition. I would like to have a dark toolbar bit i don't wont to enable dark mode for any website.

I have installed Firefox color and whenever i choose a darker color for the toolbar all websites are displaying their dark versions (it behaves like the dark mode is turned on).

I have tried to manual set browser.theme.content-theme and browser.theme.toolbar-theme but after every restart these get overridden.

Does anyone know how to make this happen?

The funny thing is that everything was fine before today's update...i tried reinstalling Firefox and also i tried disabling all extensions...

I tried to hit the Feedback under Firefox Help because this latest update has completely broken the ability to report comments or inappropriate posts on Facebook, to the group admins, but all I keep seeing is something called Mozila.Crowdcity.com! If you're taking our ability to submit simple feedback away, I won't be using Firefox anymore. This has just happened as well since this latest update. I didn't have any trouble submitting feedback prior to this.
