I just installed mint 18.3 and I'm still pretty green. I know there's a solution but I can't understand it.

_______________________ Enable touchscreen gestures

Make sure dom.w3c_touch_events.enabled is either set to 1 (enabled) or 2 (default, auto-detect).

Add MOZ_USE_XINPUT2 DEFAULT=1 to /etc/security/pam_env.conf and then logout or reboot your system for the changes to take effect.


_______________________

I'd like to know what this means (sorry for being dum), otherwise I wouldn't mind waiting if there's plans to add scrolling in future updates.

Note that I'm NOT asking about address-bar suggestions, but the address bar itself. There's a little info icon with a green lock followed by the url. Some websites (ex. the Washington Post) display a title (also in green) next to the lock and before the URL. It can be quite long, and makes the address bar inaccessible --- even for not-so-narrow windows. When this happens, there is no typeable area or visible text area to select. The only way to enter a new URL is to first navigate away using the back button (or open a new tab/window). I assume this either is very obnoxious marketing or bad configuration on the website's part. Is there a way to disable the display of anything but the lock itself? Again, to be clear, I am speaking solely of the address bar itself --- not the drop down suggestions or any other part of the browser window.

I tried disabling favicons and site icons (I figured it could be some sort of big icon), but that didn't work. Disabling extensions had no effect either --- so it's clearly firefox proper. FF 57.0.1.

Any help would be appreciated!

Cheers, Ken

I have Ubuntu 17.04, and my current FF is 57. I have tried updating several times without success, and now have tried the following:-

  • Downloaded FF66, and from Terminal tried to run the "updater" script, which fails with "./updater: error while loading shared libraries: libmozsqlite3.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
  • I tried running the firefox from the same directory, and a FF 57 browser window appears.
  • Looked at software updater, and it showed that FF66 is installed, and when I clicked the "Launch" button, nothing happened.

I have looked for help online without success, and now hope someone will be able to help me get it running. Many thanks,

Hi There,

We have an issue with any version of Firefox after 57.04. It affects a few dozen of our users. It appears to be specific to our environment, but we need help tracking the source of the issue. The issue in on Windows 10 and Windows 2016 operating systems.

Firefox appears to update successfully, but when we attempt to run it the process appears in task manager using 2.5mb of ram. Nothing else happens. No visible errors, and no windows open. After killing the process we can run the 57.04 installer to revert, which results in a perfectly functional Firefox.

The issue seems to be specific to our environment, but not specific to hardware platform.

We have tried many things: -Various installers and update paths/methods -Safe Mode -Removing addons prior to upgrade -Clean uninstall/install (including deleting firefox profiles) -Disable and uninstalled AV softwares. -Disabled Group Policy Objects.

Please let us know what troubleshooting steps we can take to locate the source of the problem.

Any help is appreciated!

I have taken some screenshots to show what I look at every time I update to a version 57+ I did try updated versions as they became available, in case my problem had been fixed, but it gets so annoying that I roll back again.

The Image upload feature doesn't appear to be working here so I uploaded some screen grabs to Imgur.

Only displaying part of the page: https://i.imgur.com/9gsgekO.png https://i.imgur.com/FfwLP6b.png

Images and other page details disappear: https://i.imgur.com/s7W7Seg.png

Pages are split and do not display in one piece: https://i.imgur.com/l8FPFdF.png

It's not my graphics drivers or anything else, everything is up to date. I roll back to 56.0.2 (32-bit) and this solves the issue. I am having the same problems on two machines running Win7. Cheers, Keith

I just upgaded to the latest version of firefox, and now all the dropdown menus of the extensions like noscript, abp, greasemonkey, just show a tiny white area of say 2x1 cm and no real contents. Of course the first advise is to start in safemode, I did, but then of course non of the extensions show up, exiting safemode restores the problem. One other advise was to unchek recommended performance settings, I did. nothing changed (not after a restart) And one other thing I checked was layers.acceleration.disabled which is set to true layers.acceleration.force-enabled is set to false

so, I don't know what else to do. Does any of you guys have more suggestions?
