I support open source movement and against tech giants and hence I love and want to use Firefox. I would use Firefox even if it is slow because on most sites delay of few seconds doesn't matter. But I do stock market trading and trading website of my broker (finvasia.com) is very slow in Firefox. On all chromium based browsers slowness is not there.

In trading delay of even one second is a matter of profit and loss (specially in scalping) and hence using Firefox is not possible as it is very slow for finvasia.com.

I have done screen recordings to give an idea of degree of slowness. First video is when finvisa is opened in a chromium based browser MIN. As you can see that when I change from holdings to position etc then delay is very less. (the yellow circle on the screen hardly complete one complete rotation and holding or position scree is opened). In this video you can also see that when I place order or modify it, everything happens so quickly.

Finvasia on chromium based browser

But in the below video (finvasia in firefox) you can see that when I switch from holding to position (00:2) the yellow circle (just above the pointer) makes 9 complete circle before showing the screen. When I click on Buy button on order screen (00:34) the order doesn't get fulfilled (the order rectangle didn't disappear). At 00:47 it said connection issue (There is no connection issue, wifi is working fine and never show any connection issue in chromium based browsers but in Firefox it shows in every order).

I kept waiting but order rectangle didn't go so finally I had to close it manually (1:45). After that when I switched to order screen it didn't show any single order. I tried to refresh the order screen (1:59) but nothing happened. So finally I refreshed the tab of browser. It was also hanged and after few click it worked and then you can see that there were many orders on order screen.

Finvasia on Firefox

As trading involves money and such delay can cause huge loss. Trading on Finvaisa.com is not possible if a person is using Firefox.

I also tried safe mode, and refreshing the Firefox, but problem didn't get solved. Kindly fix this problem.

Firefox version is latest (99) and I am attaching screenshot to give details about my system and OS.

On bootup firefox opens a single window which says the following:

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

The restore function succeeds in restoring 6 windows from the prior session, but this notice keeps appearing on every bootup.

Here are a few relevant details from about: config

  • browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes (is set to 1)
  • browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash (is set to true)
  • No 3rd party third party cleaning software
  • Two extensions, tab stash and tree tabs
  • There are no entries in about:crash for this event

Have been using Firefox from 2004 with 5-10 open windows which appear on bootup as they existed from the prior session. This is the first occurance of this error. Appreciate your support. Here are a few system details:

1.) 28gb ram 2.) Linux ~ LMDE 5 (Elsie) 3.) Firefox ESR 115.8 (oesr) 64 bit.

Over the past few weeks I've been unable to watch live videos on Firefox on Ubuntu 22.04. I thought it was just an issue with Twitch but I realized the problem also persists on live videos on Youtube and did some troubleshooting which didn't solve the issue. The only solution I was able to find for Ubuntu said to install ffmpeg, which I already had, but I made sure it was upgraded, refreshed Firefox, and still have the issue. Currently I'm on Firefox 121.0 but I've had this issue since before I updated it. I dual boot Ubuntu and Windows and am not having this issue when I boot Windows on the same computer and Firefox profile.

When I want to drag and drop a tab into a folder of the bookmark toolbars, I can't do it for some folders.

Specifically, it doesn't work for folders that are somewhat in the area of the tab preview animation that pops up when I start dragging the tab. So that is not the same folders every time, it depends on the tab location in the tab bar.

I hope that the explanation was clear enough, I did a screen record also, made it available here https://ufile.io/pikit6xo (335 kB).

Do someone had a similar issue and found a solution?

I'm in troubleshooting mode. Firefox 100, just updated, but bug was there before. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

I have recently updated to Firefox 106 on two Arch Linux systems. One of them has Firefox View enabled and working by default, another does not. I looked around and tried some options in about:config to enable it, however it did not work and I reverted the changes. I would like to enable Firefox View on this browser as well, and I would like to know how to enable it.

In case anyone's interested, under Debian 12, when I resume from hibernation, if I have Firefox running as well as Tbird, if I click on a link in an email, the existing instance of Firefox is ignored and a new instance is opened. The first instance is in fact frozen -- it looks as it should but trying to change tabs or open a new tab is inactive. Seems I have to kill the open instance of FF, then if I click on a link in an email, FF pops up as it should with a new tab for the link, but the existing tabs are all there and all functional. It feels like a bug -- Tbird seems not to know that FF is already running.

Today when I closed Firefox and reopened it the option to restore previous session was not shown, as a result I have lost half my pinned tabs (I managed to redo the rest from bookmarks) which were vital. I tried going into history but the option was greyed out.

This happened yesterday too but after redoing half my tabs I went to open gmail and it restored all my tabs, I tried the sane today but it failed so am stuck with half my tabs.

Please do not suggest I use synch as I only use one device.

I'm using Firefox 106.0.1 on Ubuntu 22.10 from Mozilla's official PPA but when I open some websites the browser crashes with the message "Exiting due to channel error.". I found the error could be related to libwebp with LTO enabled, may be it is, but I rebuilt the Ubuntu's package without LTO and one website stopped crashing, dell.com support page, but several others still crash, like amd.com.

Firefox for Linux has a bug where it is unable to drag a tab from a non-active window. As in, if the window focus is on Firefox window A and I try to drag a tab from Firefox window B to window A, I have to click first the window. I can't just intuitively drag the tab from a non-active window, because it will get ignored. It will just activate the window, ignoring the drag.

Firefox for Linux, running on Nobara KDE latest desktop. Confirmed also on KDE Neon latest desktop.

I installed Firefox-ESR on my Raspberry PI and noticed that I cannot play Udemy videos. After some research I found that the Widevine plugin is missing and the OpenH264 Video Codec is also not installed. Following the instructions from similar issues didn't solve the problem. I ticked off and on the "Play DRM-controlled content" button but this only brings the widevine plugin for a moment and after that it disappears. In the network tab I see no activity when click on this button, i.e. Firefox does not send requests.

Additionally the OpenH264 Video Codec is not installed and never installs.

Any ideas how to solve this?

The credit card save/auto-fill option seems to have disappeared from the settings on Firefox. I previously had it set to 'off', but when there was an issue recently I found the option was gone - although the about:config was still showing credit card options. Has this option been removed from Firefox now?

On this page with an Atari emulator, I am unable to use its controls that use the Alt key, such as Alt+P to pause.

It works with another browser, or with a fresh profile.

I've tried disabling add-ons and trying it again, but it fails even after disabling each of them. It also doesn't even work in troubleshooting mode, and that seems kinda odd?

It may be some modified settings in my Firefox profile? Though if it is, I don't know what settings, nor how to fix it. What sorts of settings are retained even in troubleshooting mode?

For a few months, I have encountered an issue with videos playback on my browser. On most websites (including Reddit, Dailymotion, and even some videos on YouTube), whenever I scrub back a video, it will stop for about ten seconds, while the audio keeps playing.

My current extensions are: Metamask, Bionic Reader, uBlock Origin, Return Youtube Dislike, and TWP Translate Web Pages. I have tried using Troubleshooting mode, but the problem persisted, so I think it's not because of my extension.

My OS is Opensuse Tumbleweed, with Firefox version 155.0.3. I didn't have this issue with Firefox ESR on my previous Debian 11 installation. I hope someone can find a solution for this, as it is extremely troublesome switching to Chrome whenever I want to watch videos.

Firefox breaks my desktop environment's scrollbar style and (gradient) color and in version 98+ refuses css to approximate it

I work on kubuntu 20.04 with plasma 5.18.8 desktop environment. I have a QtCurve-based custom application style, which I almost match with css for GTK apps. Firefox has to be an exception by itself! Not only that, but it changes my ability to customize its interface, from time to time and even changes access to such ability, on some updates.

My scrollbar customizations in userChrome.css and userContent.css do not work any more (other CSS changes still work, for menu/addressbar/tabbar/bookmarksbar orderint and tab styling). I had to resort to settings in user.js file, to get a 20px width scrollbar, suitable for my big screen, but... it gets very wide when I increase the focus, on some webpages and becomes very ugly! Furthermore, I cannot make sense of the proper use of "ui.themedScrollbar*" settings and the scrollbar and its slider result in the same color. These are my settings in user.js:

user_pref("widget.content.gtk-theme-override", "backwater"); user_pref("widget.non-native-theme.enabled", false); // Use GTK-3.0 gtk.css: set to false user_pref("toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets", true); // Use userChrome.css & userContent.css: set to true user_pref("widget.gtk.alt-theme.scrollbar_active", true); user_pref("widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override", 20); // If nothing else works, fix scrollbar width to 20px user_pref("widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.round-thumb", false); user_pref("widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.thumb-size", 1.0); // originally 0.75 user_pref("widget.non-native-theme.gtk.scrollbar.allow-buttons", true); // it was true, anyway... user_pref("layout.css.cached-scrollbar-styles.enabled", false); user_pref("layout.css.color-mix.enabled", true); user_pref("widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.style", 4); // wide scrollbar theme: set to 4 user_pref("ui.themedScrollbar", "#bad1f5"); user_pref("ui.themedScrollbarInactive", "#668cc4"); user_pref("ui.themedScrollbarThumb", "#e4e4e4"); user_pref("ui.themedScrollbarThumbHover", "#e4e4e4"); user_pref("ui.themedScrollbarThumbActive", "#668cc4"); user_pref("ui.themedScrollbarThumbInactive", "#bad1f5"); user_pref("browser.dom.window.dump.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.ui.sitepermission.hidden", false); user_pref("fission.experiment.max-origins.qualified", true);

Either with the "ui.themedScrollbar*" settings or without them (and cleared from the prefs.js file), the scrollbar and its slider result in the same color, unless I (tryingly) click on some place on the scrollbar outside its slider; then I can see the slider, _only_ for the duration of the mouse-down event (which causes up or down page-hight scrolling).

The default, very thin scrollbar, as well as my modified wide scrollbar with invisible slider are both useless to me! I have even tried fx-autoconfig (https://github.com/MrOtherGuy/fx-autoconfig) to make the scrollbar CSS work, but no result. At this point, I am considering switching to another browser, despite the trust I have to mozilla, for my data and privacy.

Dear Mozilla Support, [please forgive my poor English - FRENCH is my mother tongue]

CONTEXT - I use a Linux (Peppermint) Live DVD to surf the Web, always on the same laptop. I do NOT use any hard disk inside that laptop, just the Live DVD spinned by a DVD player. Only the RAM stores data => fresh new distro for every session - years ago, I created a Firefox account, and the Sync worked perfectly, and allowed me to back up my Bookmarks AND my Opened Tabs (they are stored in Mozzila's cloud, and after each sign in and a sync, they reappear in the left panel). Regarding the Synced Tabs, the left panel used to store all the previous Live DVD sessions (generally with the device's name: peppermint's Linux... (IIRC). - i do NOT use several devices, and do NOT wish to sync date acreoss them. I use Sync to get my Bookmarks and Opened Tabs synced across successive Firefox sessions, day after day. I worked perfectly well.

PROBLEM Since a few weeks, I noted that despite login and sync, on the left panel - Synced Tabs are now empty: no tabs synced at all => so I cannot seamlessly find back my opened tabs from one session to another (if I switch off my laptop, then later restart a new Live DVD session) - see screenshot = https://imgur.com/LO6jWLYl.png - Bookmarks are nevertheless still perfectly synced (see screenshot = https://i.imgur.com/Td0nbY2.png)


Many thanks for you help. Kind regards from Europe.

Firefox is having issues opening files in my tempdir directory. Opening a file directly, via File -> Open, there are no problems. But, when using either drag-and-drop or when trying to open an attached file from Thunderbird I will get something like the following:

File not found

Firefox can’t find the file at /tmp/pid-15374/etfExpectations_2022-04-22.pdf.

   Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
   Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

I have this ennoying issue since some months and didn't find a way of fixing it, even by completely deleting the app and removing all remnants of profiles before re-installing it. If I leave Firefox open when I shut down my computer, most of the time (but not every time!) instead of opening the last window with its tabs, Firefox displays the KDE Plasma's or OpenSuse's splash screen (which is a lamp bulb on a black background) and no menu). If I minimize the window, and maximize it again, it displays a screenshot of my desktop!... I can't do anything but close the window and re-launch firefox, but then the history of last closed windows is gone.

I have the same version of FF and the same version of OpenSuse on two other computers and never had this issue on them.

I would be grateful to anybody who could give me some tips to solve it or even investigate!

Thanks for reading. Erik
