Hey guys,

I'm running my laptop on the latest version of Fedora, and using the latest version of Firefox although this issues has been happening with previous versions of Firefox too.

I'm not sure why but I'll be working and using Google sites fine sometimes (mostly gmail, google,google slides), but other times i will put the address in and nothing will happen, no timeout or anything as if I didn't do anything. I was even working with Google slides one time and I got signed out in the middle of my work and had to use a different browser to access slides again.

Anyone have any idea what my issues is?

Thanks.

I have exactly the problem described in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1042093: whenever I press any keys on a page, it brings up the search bar, which breaks all kind of shortcuts / keypress handler set by the page.

However, I can't seem to find the option which is meant to turn this behaviour off.

According to the current state of the version 93, Linux and the info from this article - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/text-encoding-no-longer-available-firefox-menu#firefox:linux:fx93 the old function for a manual change of the text encoding was removed.

How can i get it back?

This function is critical for me. It it is completely removed from Firefox, them i will downgrade it or look for another browser that still support it.

I usually leave the default zoom under general settings at 100%, but when I'm in the settings / preference page, I usually set it at 90%.

However, in my attempt to clear cache on another issue, I ticked site preferences and offline web site data under clear all history. Ever since, the 90% under about:preferences does not stick like it did previously.

Setting the default zoom at 90% under General sticks, but it also applies 90% under general browsing - which is not what I want.

How could I get back to my previous settings?

Thanks.

I have used firefox for many years and really like it overall. One real problem is not being able to open new tabs to my home page (or what ever page I define to open). I have contributed to the project several times over the years but I am considering a replacement because of this issue. My hope is you might provide some solution without an addon, which always brings overhead. Please advise. Joe

My 11-year-old PC (custom build, now running Windows 10) crashed badly (hard drives and Windows 10 were irretrievably broken), so I bought a new motherboard, etc. and installed a new OEM copy of Windows 10. I must reinstall almost all software, including Firefox. The old C: drive SSD is intact. After I install Firefox on the new machine, how can I restore the tabs from the last Firefox session?

While there are some things I like about FireFox, I use another browser for the vast majority of my browser use... I'm running Linux, and it seems that FireFox has locked itself in as the default browser... Since I am unable to modify that condition, is my only recourse to uninstall FireFox? Or, am I missing some secret handshake?

When I got my Android phone, sync (from desktop to phone) worked nicely. My laptop was permanently damaged in a fire, and my latest backup of FF folders is two weeks old. (I'm guilty - I know!). Bookmarks still appear on my phone, including a few I added just hours before the fire. If I log into FF on the new desktop, will it pull all the bookmarks from the phone? Or will its brand new (and empty) bookmark file tell the phone to dump its bookmarks too?

In other words, who's in charge in a situation like this? The desktop or the phone?

Hi, I just would like that whenever I open the browser, it would open my saved homepages. If I turn off the computer without closing firefox then the next time I open the browser it will load my previous session. I dont want to load my previous session, I want it to open my homepages every time. I have already unchecked "restore previous session" in the options. It only works if I close the firefox before turning off the computer. Just, please, tell me which option I should uncheck in about:config.

I have set a number of pinned tabs and leave a few other tabs always open. I set Firefox to restore the tabs when I close it and reopen it. Most of the time I have just one Firefox window open and this works fine. Occasionally, however, I need to open a second window usually with just one tab and if I forget and close the main Firefox window with the pinned tabs, etc before the single window one, Firefox reloads this single tab when I reopen it. Is there a way to avoid this behaviour?

Hi all,

I am a Linux user (Manjaro) and I've been using Firefox for ages now. I got hold of another computer recently, and I just installed Manjaro Gnome on it as well. I started Firefox, and suddenly I see a UI change, which I don't think is an update, but who knows. In this version of firefox the search bar (along with the new tab, refresh, pocket, etc buttons) are abobe the tab list (which spans the full width). You can see it here https://imgur.com/a/idqp5jb

Moreover, i tried changing themes via the Add-ons Manager and they can't be applied.

When using the Troubleshooting mode, Firefox is back to normal! But in normal mode it is not, so I am not really sure what the problem is. I would be thankful if you could tell me how to fix this.

How can I get the english wikipedia back instead of the search page of the infamous sleazy big company?

My distribution updated Firefox from 78.13.0 esr to 91.2.0 esr.

At each larger update Firefox deletes the search engine for the English language Wikipedia -- maybe because my interface languge is German and I have the German language Wikipedia installed. Up to now it offered in the search field to add the English Wikipedia when I was on this page. But not anymore.

Hello,

I have the current Firefox version (93.0) running on XUbuntu 20.04.03 LTS. Accidentally pasted the URL of a known phishing site (obtained from Phishtank) into the address bar instead of a VirusTotal search box, and it browsed to the site. Verified in https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search?url=https:%2F%2Fdocs.google.com%2Fforms%2Fd%2Fe%2F1FAIpQLSeAhelw8U_QuFyvJDmAn4aYM-H6QXYahD7ZjaFXC6CdyuxaNQ%2Fviewform%3Fusp%3Dsend_form&hl=en that the site is blacklisted.

I thought that Google Safebrowsing is enabled by default? (Checked about:config and saw that the "safebrowsing" settings that are bold are the ones with timestamps e.g. lastupdatetime and nextupdatetime.)

After the latest boot-up on my Manjaro desktop, Firefox is compeletely mute. All other applications are producing sound as normal, it's just Firefox that's gone silent. Checked the mute settings on the individual tabs, Checked the speakers, checked the linux system settings, checked ever volume control I can find, still no sound. I'm stumped. As far as I can tell, there's nothing telling Firefox to keep quiet, it just is for some inexplicable reason.
