I really love firefox, but since the recent update that came with a cool multi-colour theme, websockets have been having issues on my browser. I'm a developer, and currently building a site that's very much based on this websockets protocol. The issue is, when transmitting a huge chunk of data (e.g large json of google auth details), firefox tends to send a corrupted payload which the server cannot decode. This issue doesn't appear in Chrome for some reason.

So while using FF, I think it was a combination of too many programs opened and too many tabs (and an old potato PC laptop) suddenly the whole display turned black probably because of all those reasons, i waited a min but nothing, so i shut it down manually in order to restart it.

As i re opened firefox i finished the search that caused the "crash" i guess and only later i realized that all my history (an awful lot) is gone. Tried using an old Windows restore point of december but nothing. After i looked up that history is stored in the places.sqlite file i went into the profile folder and found a places.sqlite.corupt file. Does anyone know how can i repair it ?... Pleaseeee help me retrive my history. Thanks a lot.

Why and how has Google Search been added to my browser opening page?

Has Google bought Mozilla? or have they donated enough for Mozilla to become a proxy Marketing and user acquisition arm of Google?

This happened on my Windows machine and have read the below too.

Brian Fagioli, reporting for BetaNews:

  • The developers of the Ubuntu-based operating system have agreed to accept an undisclosed amount of money from Mozilla in exchange for making significant changes to Linux Mint. This includes removal of modifications to Firefox and a big change for search. The devs share the upcoming changes to Firefox in Linux Mint 19 and higher.
  • The default start page no longer points to https://www.linuxmint.com/start/
  • The default search engines no longer include Linux Mint search partners (Yahoo, DuckDuckGo...) but Mozilla search partners (Google, Amazon, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ebay...)
  • The default configuration switches from Mint defaults to Mozilla defaults.
  • Firefox no longer includes code changes or patches from Linux Mint, Debian or Ubuntu.

Can you let me know if the above is correct? Cheers.

After auto update from Firefox 95 to Firefox 96. If net page have some video, computer freeses and Task manager come full of processes (over 20) c:\program Files\mozilla Firefox\minidump-analyzer.exe c:\windows\system32\conhost.exe.

Same happened if i load some youtube video page. Only way to correct this problem is downgrade to version 95 and disable auto update.

How i can restore my bookmarks from new version to old one ?

I continually have change the default action for files with type PDF from Save File to Open in Acrobat DC. I will change it, then it works for a while, then next time I click a link on any web page to open a PDF, it tries to save the file again. Sure enough, the setting was changed back to Save File by some other program.

Isn't there a way to "lock" these preferences, or to prevent third-party apps from changing them?

This is using Windows 11 with Firefox 96.0.2 64-bit.

Thank you.
