Hi! From some time now i have problem with GUI elements overlapping each other. It started with the window control buttons (that part, where you can close the window). Esthetics aside, it was not that big deal, so I just ignored it, but some time ago similar overlap appeared on address bar - so now I don't see what I'm writing. This is a big deal, now I can't really tell if I made a typo, I'm not able to correct it or I can't see if what I'm writing is mixed with original url, stuff like that.

I'm on Manjaro Linux and Firefox version is 127.0 (64 bits) I've tried to reinstall Firefox with different sources, like Flatpak for example, but the issues persists. Has anyone an idea how to fix this?

I'm talking about how when you go to fill out a text input, it'll suggest that input next time you go to a similar field. Well, that system just saved my social security number as an input after I filled out a government form. I would like to turn this feature off now, and delete the history of it if I can. Is there a way I can do that?

I'd attach an example image of a different website, but the box goes away when trying to take a screenshot.

Using FF 115.12.0esr from openSuse 15.5. Get responses from various web sites that the browser needs an update, that it is no longer supported, etc. Some sites block me out. Another site just now reported the version of my FF is 102--so no wonder it has problems. How can I change the version number that web sites see to reflect the actual update level?

Websockets long load time - connection interrupted

Hi,

I am working on a website- one page uses websockets for data sync, activated with a button - and the socket takes a long time to actually connect (to locahost). During that time, an error pops into console- several of the same:

The connection to [url] was interrupted while the page was loading.

I found several bug reports in various places - most say to close the socket on page unload. I already have that implemented, and checking network dev tab shows all sockets are closed when the errors occur, and they also appear when tested in a whole new window. Also tested on chromium- no issues there.

Any help?

Hi

When a site sends a Web Push Notification to my browser, it flashes up at the top of the screen for 2 or 3 seconds and then is gone. Sometimes I'm busy with something else and once I see it, it's gone, or I just catch the first word or two.

How can I display the Web Push Notification again?

I'm running Firefox on Fedora Linux, if that matters.

Thanks!

Hello,

The Radar map fails, (attached) when View Radar click. I am on a TOSHIBA laptop and I do not notice any other graphics issue. I am using Firefox but other Browsers (Chrome etc) do the same. I am always up to date. There are no add-blockers enabled. I have to mention that on other machine Radar is loaded properly. I have this issue for more than 2 years at least. Can you help me with this please? Thanks!

I have the same problem as described here [1]: when I open a markdown file in Firefox it uses itself as handler opening it in a new tab, which in turn opens it in a new tab, ... The solution suggested under [1] is how to make Firefox usable again, stopping it from open this particular markdown file. But it doesn't solve the actual problem: either Firefox is capable of rendering markdown in which case it should do it; or it's not in which case it shouldn't try. Does anyone have a thought on that?

I'm using openSUSE Tumbleweed and KDE Plasma. Ever since I updated to Plasma 6.1, Firefox crashes constantly when using Wayland. I'm not having this problem if I'm using X11. Crash reports are sent after every crash so I'm sure someone can reference these. When starting Firefox from a console, I got this message after a crash: "[GFX1-]: Wayland protocol error: wp_linux_drm_syncobj_surface_v1#67: error 5: explicit sync is used, but no release point is set"

Will this get fixed with the next Firefox update? Currently using 127.0.

Occasionally, and typically only after a reboot, Firefox starts consuming a significant amount of CPU time. This typically goes on for several minutes, and if I close and reopen Firefox, the process begins again. It's enough CPU that the fans kick on high through most of the process, and considering I'm only opening the browser (not even switching tabs to actively load any other pages), I don't know why it would do this. Similarly, if it were related to typical startup behavior, why doesn't it do this every time?

While I generally trust that this is intentional and is unlikely the result of malware, I'd still like to know why Firefox does this at all and what it's doing. I'm not sure if I can collect any logs or get any other info about this. From process monitors, it appears to be the main executable that's consuming the additional CPU and not any of the isolated instances.

I collected the troubleshooting information, and saved it, but I am hesitant to share without knowing what type of information is contained (and I can see some sensitive stuff like file paths)

When I use the puzzle icon to access my extensions, my view is completely different from the images provided in various posts. i do recall the screen shots that were posted as similar to earlier extension management methods used on my previous Firefox. There is no gear to the right of my extensions; i show an enable/disable switch and a 3 dot menu "..." remove/report/manage. I have attempted to reinstall both extensions without success. I have never had problems installing any of my previous extensions, so this has been interesting. firefox esr ?.. Current version is installed.

Why do i have a different extensions page than described, and is there a way to pin my extensions differently?

Hi,

When I seek in videos, for example on youtube, it almost always hangs the entire machine. The same issue happens randomly as videos run, eg after about 5-7 minutes.

I'm struggling to get more information on what is happening (eg logs) because the whole system hangs.

Here are some things I have discovered:

1. I can reproduce in a fresh profile 2. I can reproduce with the flatpak version 3. I can't reproduce in the Brave browser 4. I can't reproduce the problem on Windows, only on this Linux machine

I'm running on Linux (debian bookworm). I'm using wayland. I have an intel i915 GPU (Alder Lake).

The problem started recently (last few days), but I'm not able to nail down exactly what changed.

What I really want is any way to get more information about what is happening - logs or debug output or whatever. Then I can work out if the bug is in Firefox, or something else on my system (eg intel graphics drivers)

Thanks, Cal
