On Ubuntu, drag and drop has broken for me. My mouse cursor does not seem to react to different types of content, like hovering over links. My main problem is that if I highlight a piece of text, or some other content block on a page, and drag it, it does not work as smoothly as it should.

Has anyone else experienced this recently?

I find closing Firefox helps temporarily but within 10-15 minutes the same problem occurs.

I have re-installed Firefox and I am running the latest version. I haven't experienced the problem in Safe Mode.

It only occurs on Firefox and is browser-wide.

Then i searched for : System Preferences, Sound, Output and check "Show volume in menu bar", but i don't find system preference, nor tools, or About, or just Preferences anywhere, i am so very lost. the settings seams very limited, and i dont find anything in the toolbar.

When you download and click on a file without the program to use it installed, the KDE portal opens up, and the only option is to go to the discover store to get the required program since you dont have anything else that's usable. However, the new program does not show up in this window, and the window to choose the associated program cannot be closed.

So, to get it to go away, I chose to associate .pptx with the dolphin browser temporarily so I could choose the correct program afterwards. After going into the firefox settings (General>applications) and setting the powerpoint files to open with ONLYOFFICE, it still ignores my changes and opens up the dolphin browser every time. I set the normal linux file association to ONLYOFFICE, so clicking on the file outside of firefox opens the correct program. I tried uninstalling firefox and deleting "all" associated files through the discover store, and still had the same problem upon reinstalling. I can clearly see there are some remaining Mozilla files on my drive despite the fact I said to delete all of the associated files, but for some reason I do not have permission to delete them, no matter what I try.

When downloading and clicking a .pptx file through chromium, the correct application loads right away, so this is clearly a problem with only firefox not updating its file associations despite me repeatedly trying to do so through the system settings.

The "automatic zoom" seems to regularly zoom to a level that will cut off text far down on a page.

I'm not sure how "automatic" it is as it mostly seems to be a slightly zoomed in level compared to page fit. From the name it sounds like it should detect where there is text on a page and hide some air in headers/footers. However, even in cases where it cuts off right as the text cuts off, it's often unclear if there's a following line or empty footer space following the last visible line.

As it is I'll switch to page fit for default, but it would be preferable if the out-of-the-box experience either did a better job of not cutting off right before the text ends; at that point both page fit and width fit are better default options.

The examples are from a zoning proposal in Oslo.

"Cobrowse" on US Bank Website doesn't work, Using Firefox 117.0 (64-bit) for Ubuntu

On the US Bank website (http://www.usbank.com/), there is a "cobrowse" feature that apparently uses javascript. It doesn't work with standard settings.

Attempting to invoke it only gets a blue rectangle around the "cobrowse" link at the bottom left of the page, and displays "Javascript" in the lower left corner.

It should display a validation to allow the technician to follow and assist your actions on the site.

JavaScript is enabled.

I would like to use this feature.

There is an Add-On called Shortkeys that allows custom actions to be assigned to various standard key combinations (ctrl-A, alt-X, etc.) but this does not work for keys that emit escape code sequences.

I have a keypad that I use for motion commands, including scrolling, in my vim editor and I would like to use the same keys to scroll up/down on a loaded page in Firefox. Is there any way, including using some Add-On that would allow these keys that emit escape sequences to be assigned to page motions?

Thanks for any insights.

Issue: When trying to stream video via criterion, progress spinner spins for about a minute and then the website delivers: 'Please try again in a supported browser'. Firefox delivers: 'Firefox is installing components necessary to reproduce the audio or video in this page. Try again later.'

In plug-in manager: Widevine is not enabled, receive alert: '...this will install in a few moments'. It does not actually ever install. In settings: Play content with DRM is enabled.

OS used: UBUNTU 22.04.02 LTS 64 bit

Hello.

Since some time (few months, can't really say when this started happening), the middle mouse button click on a tab stopped working as before. I will describe the expected behavior and how it (still) works on the same computer with a different browser (Chrome):

1. Hover over a tab 2. Middle-click closes a tab 3. Tabs right to the closed one move left 4. Middle-click closes a tab 5. Steps 2-4 may be repeated unless there are no tabs opened 6. Leaving the tabs bar (if any left opened) will now rearrange the remaining tabs (increase their width, etc)

Now, here is the not so great behavior I am facing in Firefox: 1. Hover over a tab 2. Middle-click closes a tab 3. Tabs right to the closed one move left 4. Middle-click rearranges the remaining tabs (increase their width, etc) 5. Middle-click closes a tab 6. Steps 2-5 may be repeated unless there are no tabs opened 7. Leaving the tabs bar (if any left opened) will now rearrange the remaining tabs (increase their width, etc), if you have left at last step 3

See, there is this extra step #4 which is really bugging me enough to actually come and ask for a support.

I am on Ubuntu 20.04, using latest version of Firefox (to date).

Many thanks!

Hello,

When I try to log in to my Firefox Sync account with my email address ( morgan@eml.cc ), it takes my password and then says I have to put in a verification code that was emailed to me. I put in that code, and then instead of logging me in, sends me back to the password page with a message that my password was wrong.

However, if I intentionally put in the wrong password, it immediately tells me it was wrong instead of doing the verification code thing. So I feel pretty certain I'm putting in the right password.

I had to create a new account just to ask this question; thankfully I had an email address I hadn't associated with a Firefox account yet.

Thanks in advance!

nsandi.com asks for cookie permissions on every page despite accepting cookies on previous pages.

I raised this with them and they said it was because I am using an unsupported OS, I am using Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS and FF 117.0 (64-bit) - which they do support.

If I use a different browser, Opera One(version: 102.0.4880.40) on the same machine it is not a problem.

Is there anyway I can make this work correctly using FF?

(It may be "website broken" but I fear it is more this part of the problem)

Sorry folks, I know I don't help here much yet am often asking questions.

Base line: This machine Firefox Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Lots of pages/tabs open. 4 very specif tabs: 1 - this machine. 1 - RasPi #1 1 - RasPi #2 1 - RasPi #3 1 - RasPi #4

I use Node-Red on all 4 machines. So I have the tabs open on their "edit screen". I have a "dark theme" loaded - saves burning my eyes.

Until very recently things have been good. Example: Pic 1 And another part that is correct. Pic 2 All machines are running the same version of Node-Red with the same settings for how the "edit screen" is shown.

Suddenly - and alas I don't have a screen shot of one of the problems - the colour scheme is corrupt.

Example of a problem. Problem1 I can't see things until I move the mouse over them.

the other problem - which has now gone away - is the background as shown in pic2 is white.

Until today this problem didn't exist.

I am asking here as I want to check all possibilities.

SUSPICION 1: A LONG TIME ago I asked for help with the log in screen for these three remote machines. The colours were wrong and at the log in screen I was seeing text similar to how it looks in 'problem1' picture.

I adjusted the colours to something else and it helped the problem. Not exactly 100% good, but it did make the contrast better. Has that *crept into* causing this problem?

By opening a private window and logging in this is what the login screen looks like: login

Sorry I don't know how to make them appear as inline but I've named them as per how I called them here. (edit) SORRY, I see that the names were not exactly honored and they were given different names. I hope you can see what is what.

(edit 2) Ok, something else that doesn't make sense. The third of the remote machines. It's colour scheme is working fine. It is the same as the first two. RasPi. Buster. Ok 1 and 2 are V3 and 3 is V2.

BUT! Ok, saying what I just said/suspect is true: HOW did it happen? It was working for .... years. No problems. Suddenly **BANG** it happens.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I running Firefox on Ubuntu Lunar. Every thing is updated, Software Updater doesn't find anything to do. Neither does looking for updates in the extension manager.

I have a lot of extensions installed, probably too many. They include several malware, tracking, popup, and ad blockers. I'm surprised they seem to be playing well together without stepping on each other. When they do block something I need, it's hard to tell who blocked that and then fix it. Is there an easy way to find which one did the block?

Could the multiple blockers be interfering with each other in subtle ways without me noticing?

I have some false alarms where at first I thought extensions were interfering with each other. There are a few extensions that don't work: Dictionary Anywhere, Don't Track Me Google, and To Google Translate among others. When I click the puzzle piece extensions icon in upper right corner, they are grayed out and can't be used. I tried disabling all the other extensions and tried each one at a time by itself. They are still grayed out.

Any ideas?

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.

Same as the question.

The display shows some icons on the last tabs I opened but it seems only some basic website layout is loaded but all the details are gone. Like text, button borders, even the exit, fullscreen and minimize buttons. I have seen that this has been an issue for quite some time before so I am looking if there is a fix or a workaround. I have and Nvidia graphics card and drivers if that means anything. And my swap file is 20 GB and my RAM is 16 so the space shouldn't be a problem. It gets fixed when I turn off Firefox but not when I refresh tabs.

The crazy thing is that when I take a screenshot inside firefox (with firefox integrated screenshot option, like when I press right click and then take screenshot. I can see the text so it seems like it is a display problem but this only happens with firefox and not other apps.

Appreciate all the help. I will ask of ubuntu formums next if I don't find a solution here.

Thank you all for reading and answering!
