WebAssembly console messages are all the same (undefined) instead of specific as they were in earlier versions

VERSION: OS: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS OS type: 64-bit Firefox: 83.0 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu canonical -1.0

ISSUE: All of the WebAssembly / Wasm error messages I receive in the FF console give a generic response instead of specific messages (like previous versions offered).

I recorded some of the previous error messages in content I was creating for others which explained how to resolve those error messages.

This is an example of what I used to see in the console.

BEFORE:


Firefox 70.0.1 CompileError: wasm validation error: at offset 824: popping value from empty stack

Firefox 80 Uncaught (in promise) CompileError: wasm validation error: at offset 47: initializer expression must reference a global immutable import

Firefox 80 Uncaught (in promise) LinkError: imported Memory with incompatible size


Now, when I do the same things that would trigger those errors, the message I get is vague and not specific at all.

AFTER:


Firefox 83 Uncaught (in promise) Error: undefined


This makes it much more difficult to debug my Wasm in the browser and halts me from sharing my findings with others.

I did look in the about:config settings (in case they added a flag) and tried switching

javascript.options.wasm.verbose from ‘false’ to ‘true’

but that was not a solution.

Setting that flag to true only gave more references to the phases of the compilations but did not give me back the error reporting I used to see for Wasm.

I need to know how to enable the actual error messages again for Wasm or understand why the helpful messages were changed into a generic message. I’m hoping that it just an accident they are not displaying.

Hello I am developing software for windows and I would like to include firefox for the browser but was unsure of how to include it in my project. Can anyone guide me on how to include it in my VB .net program without having to have the user actually install it via the default installer? I mean they may already have it installed but they may not as well.. I could make the program check to see if it is installed but would rather just have it there ready to use for them. Could I somehow take the necessary firefox files and place them into my app directory and they can load firefox from the application directory?

How can I achieve this?

Thanks

MS has begun 'grabbing' my FF browser - does this about once a week. It closes my tabs, kills my search engine and substitutes bing. This, I assume, is malware from MS and may have come in with the new Windows 10:

First - I want to make Mozilla aware this is happening.

Second - how can I prevent those bastards from grabbing the browser and making me re-install my tabs - all this takes about a half hour?

Thanks,

I use FireFox portable 82.0.3 . When I select it as the default browser it sets the .pdf reader for the whole Windows OS as Firefox reader. I have the .pdf reader set in Windows as Adobe Reader. I also use Opera browser & some of the time I set it as the default browser. Opera doesn't change the .pdf reader when set to default browser. I know how to change it back to Adobe Reader in Windows but this is inconvenient every time I select FireFox browser as the default. I even set the Options/Applications to Portable Document Format (PDF) Use Adobe Reader in FireFox. If using FireFox & looking at a .pdf online FireFox uses Adobe Reader. When I click a .pdf in Windows the Windows uses the FireFox reader until I change Windows back to Adobe Reader. I would like to stop FireFox from setting the .pdf reader to FireFox reader everytime I choose FireFox as the default browser.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/search-firefox-address-bar says that "You can choose an alternative search type and use it for your search with one click if you don't want to use the current default."

However, that doesn't happen.

Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch Firefox (Windows or Ubuntu) 2. Type "sennheiser" in the address bar 3. Click a custom search provider's icon (e.g. Wikipedia)

Expected Result: A list of search results on Wikipedia or the Sennheiser Wikipedia page.

Actual Result: UI elements change in the address bar (see screenshots)

I hav been using my Gmail in Firefox with no problem until about 3 days ago. Now when I try to sign in to my account I get a pop up window which states “This browser or app may not be secure. Try using a different browser. Etc.”

I have tried another browser (chrome) and Gmail works fine, but I like working in Firefox. But at this rate I may dump Firefox and go to another browser.

I have looked through the other support group questions and solutions. I have tried them all and nothing is resolved. Clearing cache, clearing cookies, using a private window, managing data, using forget about this site, generating a new profile, disabling extensions, loading in safe mode, etc.

I have Firefox version 83.0 (64 bit). My operating system is windows 7.

Any other suggestions?

Recently a Website "Fastly" tries to connect to its own IP addresses. Even if nothing has been done to call it,

My research shows that Fastly now owns the IP addresses formerly used by the known spyware ad supploer Cambridge Entreprenurial 199.232.0.0 thru 199.232.255.255. I see these connection attempts because my FireWall specifically blocks the address used by Cambridge Entrepren... So the FW gives me a popup. (which I can bypass temporarily)

But I can't find a way to stop it or what is causing Fastly to do anything. It just seems to call home when it feels like. The only consistency is only partial at best. That is for Amazon.com. In that case sometimes connecting to Amazon.com works fine. But much or most of the times I do not get an even cl;ose properly formatted Amazon page. And if I do get an OK Amazon home page, odds are high the next tab-page I open will be messed up, or not have any formatting or no graphics at all.

Any ideas? And can we get rid of Fastly or do we just have to block sites that allow Fastly to operate?

I hate it when I click on the url-field and its size change.

It wasn't there in former firefox versions and I did not miss it. It changed some time ago. Any decent software development would have introduced his new feature and provided a "classic" option to turn it off. Not so firefox. Mozilla introduced it and I had to google how to get the old behaviour back. No option.. I have to go to about:config, ignore teh warnings, find some weird options and set them to false and the mozilla turned that off too. Now the was to change it is to set up a css-file, got to about:config again to make firefox actually read that file, place some mystery css-code in there and it still does not work!

Very annoying, an outstanding example of bad practice how to introduce new features and take away users choices.

So: How to stop URL bar from enlarging on click?

Hello,

I have a 2018 iMac running macOS Big Sur 11.0.1. I have Firefox 83 installed and using it.

I wanted to know if anyone knew when mozilla is gonna update the logo so it matches the Big Sur UI? It kinda drives me nuts when I see that the only thing not consistent with the stuff in my dock is Firefox - everything else like Logic pro x, imovie, chrome, etc. is all up to date.

Thanks.

Hello, My problem is when I did the lastest FireFox update on 11/21/20, YouTube video's will not play on FireFox, even with the accelerated hardware un-checked, and even in Safe Mode. However - YouTube "does" work just fine on Google Chrome.

My system: MBP, High Sierra, using FireFox version: 83.0 (64-bit). What Ive done so far: Ive shut off the ad-blocker, the accelerated hardware is always off, went into Safe Mode and still the vids wont play. YouTube video's play perfectly fine in Google Chrome.

FireFox: I can watch movies on Amazon Prime with no problems. Its just a YouTube problem.

Thanks very much for your sage advice.

After formatting a brand new computer, I am facing issues when printing a few PDF files where Firefox will alter the font and size. I've tried other browsers (Edge, Chrome) and none of this happens. I've also attempted a few fixes like resetting Firefox, reinstalling Firefox, changing settings in the print preview (which is an excellent way to see the problem without even having to print).

Specific example: A PDF attachment in Roundcube Webmail is printed, and the text fields have the font size adjusting to the height of the field. In this particular instance I will share an example where the original PDF has a form text/memo field that defaults to use Helvetica font with auto-sizing - begins at about 12px and gets smaller to fit the text inside the box.

Printing this PDF from Firefox (to an actual printer or to PDF) results in the bad font settings mentioned above, and when using a PDF printer I find that the font changed from the original's size 10 to Arial size 62. This issue can also be perceived using the print preview.

If anyone has some ideas, I would appreciate it.

Bets regards.
