So, I am a Linux user who is used to shell commands like mv or cp. One of their feature is absence of prompts like "Are you sure what you want to replace foo.txt?". Because I have somewhat organized fs, I always know what that file is for and if I can overwrite it.


Now I have to download some files, what I need only for uploading onto another website / reading them once. So, I just download them into my /tmp folder and save them under the same name (so I could just repeat cat command and reduce clutter). But each time I download a file Firefox asks for confirmation to replace my existing file. Are there any config flags to disable those annoying prompts?

Is there any way I can completely disable horizontal scrolling? I'm using a laptop with a trackpoint (lenovo x230, Windows 10) and it's not terribly accurate, which means scrolling whilst a youtube video is going often makes it track backwards or forwards, and another website I use uses a horizontal click to send me to the next page, which sucks. I would prefer to just be able to disable it entirely. Thanks!

I swear to god I used to have it disabled, just need to work out how again.

FireFox V. 107.0 -MBP-High Sierra.

Lately the last couple of months when I google search webpages then select them, Fire Fox doesnt bring up the article, Its been happening a lot and getting really irritating. So I bring up Google Chrome and it always brings up the article. SEE THE PICTURES. I use only Fire Fox as my browser, I keep Chrome around for when Fire Fox doesnt want to work properly. As you will see in the pictures the same website for both browsers. Fire Fox wont show the article no matter how many times I refresh the page or shut FF down, or reboot my MBP, but Chrome works perfectly every damned time. Why cant Fire Fox open the article but Chrome can? I need your help, any advice is greatly appreciated. SEE THE PICTURES.

I have recently updated my site to run off a different hosting provider, and CloudFlare, a long needed change to my site. However, in doing so, my site has become unreachable on my laptop, with firefox (and other browsers) still thinking that my domain is attached to the old nameservers, causing it to redirect to the "site not found" page of my previous hosting provider. I have tried flushing my system's DNS cache, clearing my browser cache, clearing the browser's DNS records, all to no avail, however, I do know my site works, as on my mobile phone with basic Safari, the site works fine.

my system is on Ubuntu 22.04, and running firefox version 107.0

Is there a way that I can recover my New Tab page setup (just the new tab page) from a Macrium Reflect backup of my OS disk?

For some reason text on some websites such as wikipedia and timeanddate is completely messed up, it looks like gibberish but is actually just displayed wrong. When you copy the text and paste it into something like Word it shows the text correctly, I've noticed that the text is shifted by one letter forward (e is f, f is g, etc.). I've tried the main, beta and nightly releases as well as reinstalling Firefox. Images attached.

I have long been using the developer version of Firefox as my mainstay for browsing and getting Internet-related work done. Until I upgraded to 108, the Window menu remained as I set it -- in the order that I opened windows. As I have tabs grouped by subject, this worked out well given the breadth of IT and academic work that I've been doing.

Now with Firefox auto-alphabetizing the Windows menu, I'm effectively losing my tabs. Is there any way to fix this and revert to the old behavior of organizing by order-of-open-window?

For what it's worth, I'm running the latest developer version Firefox on macOS Ventura for ARM.

Since upgrading to Monterey, Google search pages show almost no text in Firefox. Google searches in Safari and Google Chrome are completely fine. Only Firefox is showing the problem. The blank text includes dropdown menus too - all options inside them are blank. Currently on Firefox v107.0, but the same problem happens with older versions.

If I go into Troubleshoot mode, the Google searches are working fine. I have refreshed Firefox, Cleared the startup cache. But the problem persists. I uninstalled Firefox from the machine, restarted the computer. Did a fresh download and install, haven't signed in so there are no addons/extensions to cause problems.

This is happening on both an Intel Mac and an M1 Mac running Mac OS 12.6 Monterey.

I attach one screenshot showing the same page with and without troubleshoot mode on. The second screenshot shows another page of results including what looks like weirdly encoded characters.

I've followed all the suggestions in the support page but nothing has helped. I'd really appreciate any advice on further troubleshooting. Thanks in advance for any help.

So I downloaded Firefox and logged in expecting my bookmarks to carry over after I "sync'd" it, however the did not. So I went to my old pc and did the export bookmarks thing and imported it to the new pc.

Now.. I have all my bookmarks and everything appears great. Except whenever I open a link from say my work it opens a Mozilla window that doesn't have my bookmarks. When I try to combine the windows It doesn't let me. I am also scared of losing access to the Mozilla with my bookmarks as I work from home using those. (the desktop shortcut to Mozilla opens the one without all my work)

In the attached screenshot things to note, the bookmark bar available on left isn't there on the right. Additionally in the taskbar (bottom) it shows Mozilla in two distinctly separate icons. When two Mozilla windows are open, they share the same icon on the taskbar, these do not, which leads me to believe I have two incompatible versions existing next to each other.

Hello.

It seems I get a problem or two almost always with a new update lately. I have been using an userChrome.css to reduce the width of sidebar but the latest version 107.0 now ignores it and have a wide width even at the narrowest. Mine currently is set as, "#sidebar {min-width:30px !important; max-width:none !important;}" This no longer works. Your support much appreciated.

I'm having an issue where firefox is acting as if there's something blocking pages/content. I do not experience the issue on any other browser.

I first noticed it trying to log into one of my accounts. The login portal redirects the page to a success screen and then to the home page. With firefox after entering credentials it shows a blank page with a 500 error instead.More specifically I believe it has to do with an api for "duosecure" (checking for multi factor auth)

another example is trying to download chrome remote desktop - normally you click their download link and pauses the current page while it triggers a popup to chrome's page to download the extension. It does this in any other browser I try except firefox.

This is on a clean install of windows 10 and a clean install of firefox. I am on the latest version of firefox (tried 106 and updated to 107 via the beta options) I have: - cleared cookies and cache - restarted firefox - tried safe mode - tried with and without extensions/addons and have removed all - uninstalled firefox as well as deleted all appdata folders - tried unchecking hardware acceleration - setting dns to none and changing the dns server options - turned off any setting i could find regarding popups, blocking sites etc - manually turned off enhanced tracking - gone through windows firewall and security settings to turn off everything that i could find that was "on" - rebooted computer - rebooted router - used the "refresh" firefox to set it back to defaults - tried connecting to the internet via ethernet and wifi options - windows updates Note: logging into other things such as gmail or facebook are fine on firefox but they don't seem to trigger redirects to outside sites.

I've recently been having troubles playing videos on Firefox.

My school website uses Vimeo embeds, but recently when I've put the videos in fullscreen, after 4-5 seconds it stops responding. The video freezes but the audio continues, and the controls don't come up when I move the mouse. I can press ESC to exit fullscreen, but the controls are still gone and the audio keeps playing. Then after a few more seconds I get the warning "This page is slowing down Firefox, to speed up your browser stop this page".

If I don't use fullscreen but instead zoom in on the page, it also freezes. If I try the same things with Edge it does not freeze. I also made sure that it was only affecting Vimeo videos, by testing with other platforms and other vimeo links.

I found previous reports of this issue, but all of them were either on Linux, or it was an issue with flash player, which is not relevant anymore.

Not quite sure how to debug this but I would be happy to provide further info. It's really important that it works again :/ Thanks in advance!

My repro steps: 1. Find a video on https://vimeo.com/watch 2. Play it and enter fullscreen 3. Wait around 6 seconds

I use Firefox 107 on MacOs and Kubuntu and have done for 2 years in this config. Opening a zoom meeting was as simple as right click join on google calendars for both platforms. About a month ago (early Oct 2022) this stopped working. Clicking on the open zoom link in the browser does not work either. It works on mac, but not linux!

Here is the console log from a right-click open:

I have Firefox 107.0b5 (64-bits) Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 I use Ubuntu Mainline to update to newer kernels. Never had any problem doing that. I am now on 5.19.15. But when I upgrade to kernel 6 (which is now at 6.0.5) Firefox tabs crash. Reloading doesn't help. Each new tab I open gives the same crash message. I have to restart to get Firefox going again. So I removed kernel 6 and reverted back to kernel 5.19 and have no problems any more. But question, what is the problem between kernel 6 and firefox? Does anybody else experience this problem?

I have no other problems with kernel 6 with other programs or hardware or whatever, only firefox tabs crash...

Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?
