Hi, in recent Firefox updates in debian testing (and in recent developer edition), when I try to print a PDF the page number is just in border and don't get printed. I try almost all things i found related in about:config.

Also in export to file, now don't strore previous location and always point to ~/mozilla.pdf is a problem, user need to change for a path each print to pdf. Also in debian the file explorer opened dont show recent files can help.

Thanks so much for your help.

I am a retired person trying to use Firefox on a Linux os computer i OWN. To day, Firefox has become unstable. I see in my settles that an "enterprise" now controls my copy of firefox.

How can I eliminate this obstruction?

Most discussion of this problem discusses Windows os and is useless to me.

My os is LinuxMint 19 (Tara)

Please advise!

This is a dealbreaker and I'm quiting firefox because of it.

Event: "Firefox has upgraded in the background and needs to restart.

You will be able to continue where you left off..."

Infuriatingly, there is no option to postpone. All browsing is immediately prevented and there is no option to do anything other than restart. Furthermore, there is no option to turn off automatic updates or even to get a notification that one might be happening until it is too late.

Problem: The restart does not return to "where I left off" with a) only one tab re-opening (plus all private tabs lost); and b) many logins and much form-filling progress lost. For example, I was in the process of submitting a government form in a private tab when, on the last step, instead of the final confirmation page, I got the dreaded "Firefox has upgraded and needs to restart" message. Upon restart, the tab didn't reopen, and I lost the session and had to start again from the beginning with the form filling process. Utterly infuriating and completely unnecessary.

I was putting up with Firefox's other annoying quirks, but this is ridiculous.

Hi from a short time back I've noticed my local pages (vdeveloping on localhost) are being cached regardless of my config which is not caching anything at all. This is particularly annoying when you make small changes and they're not reflected at once but instead they are only after 5,6,... 10 reloading calls.

I've searched for help and followed the instructions of changing options in about:config with no results

I'm using Linux and 96 version of the browser.

Thanks in advance

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading

How do I reverse what happened to 'History' when I accidentally clicked 'Forget About This Site' instead of 'Delete Page' on the drop-down menu for the highlighted page in the history feed.

I realise that I caused this problem last night when I clicked the wrong option in the drop-down menu but only became aware of what I had done when I went to my history feed this afternoon. I was looking in my history feed to find a site that I visited yesterday and noticed that a website that I have visited several times earlier today is not appearing in the feed. It is the same site that I clicked the wrong selection in the drop-down menu for last night.

How do I get 'History' to start showing that site in the feed again?

This is pissing me off so much! I'm working and in the middle of everything I have no other option than to completely restart my browser, which can easily resolve into losing what I was doing, not to mention that it completely kills my workflow. STOP DOING THIS! I don't care what the reason is, you're severely hindering the usage of the app. I will decide when to restart, not the app! I have a fresh start of my system every single day, I'm sure whatever unimportant update it was this time can wait a few hours.

Hello,

Recently, I updated ubuntu to the latest version, and had set Firefox as my primary browser (as I normally did).

I, however, could no longer access to the local hidden directories, i.e.: .local, etc., with this version. I even tried to disable Firefox sandbox security, security.sandbox.content.level = 0, and changed chown/chmod to the lowest levels, but those didn't help.

The issue can be repeated via the URL in Firefox as followed:

file:///home/y2021x/.local

or any other hidden directory. I could open these files/directories in the older versions of Firefox.

Am I overlooking something? I appreciate very much if you could help me find out the solution to this problem. Thank you very much.

I'm struggling with firefox crashing every few days or so. Unfortunately, pretty often there is no crash report. Is there a way I can sanely get to the bottom of this?

It happens to me more often with Cisco Webex than other scenarios, but there are also completely unrelated crashes.

This is Ubuntu 20.04 and standard firefox package installation. I haven't yet turned off the extensions:

 feedbro
 gnome shell integration
 stylus
 uBlock origin

I hesitate to disable them since most are important to my work.

Any help is appreciated.

I begin to use firefox developer edition alongside firefox regular version. I've read some article that say if these 2 difference version using 2 seperate different profile, but it seems they're not. For example, when I change the theme to light for firefox and dark for firefox devedition, they always syncing each other so it use the theme the last set regardless where is set.

My question, is firefox and firefox devedition really using 2 seperate different profile? Can I use different setup like themes, addons for only one version? Where I can read the official documentation?

Is there any way to get these passwords back? Or find out what the cause of this was? I lost some really valuable logins that I stupidly did not backup.

Very similar to posts in previous years that are archived and largely unanswered or not up-to-date.

I opened up my a Firefox session to find out I was logged out of sync and when I logged back in all my passwords where erased.

This has been stable for the last 10 months and Firefox has provided a reliable password archive with nice syncing features. However, this is a deal breaker, since I cannot loose the login credentials randomly.

No updates. No conscious logging out. No disregarding warnings etc.

Anyway to revert or retrieve?

I'm just trying to NOT have Firefox open my last session when I open it up after rebooting Linux. I've tried many chosen solutions on this site but nothing is working. Here are the settings I've tried with no success (note that I have tried each one individually with a restart between):

"Open previous windows and tabs" is unchecked. "browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes" is 0. "browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand" is false. "browser.sessionstore.restore_tabs_lazily" is false. "browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash" is false. "browser.startup.couldRestoreSession.count" is 0 but it sets itself back to 1. "sessionstore-windows-restored" within "sessionCheckpoints.json" in the profile folder is false but sets itself back to true. Deleting "sessionCheckpoints.json" does nothing. I don't have "user.js" in my profile folder.


Here's my system info:

Firefox Version: 95.0.2 (64-bit) Manjaro KDE KDE Plasma Version: 5.23.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.89.0 Qt Version: 5.15.2 Kernel Version: 5.15.12-1-MANJARO (64-bit)
