Firefox worked perfectly, but since a few days I can't download anything. I'm using Mozilla Firefox snap for Ubuntu 22.04, version 110.0.1 (64 bits) canonical-002 - 1.0 With Chrome everything works perfectly so I assume it's a problem from Firefox.

When I open a PDF, a MP3 or any file, the "save" option doesn't display anything. Usually it opened a dialog where I could choose the folder where I wanted to download the file, but now I have nothing.

I have only 4 extensions: - adblocker ultimate - duckduckgo privacy essentials - vuejs dev tools - zotero connector

I always had them and I never encountered any problem.

2FA login on sites works with Chromium but NOT WITH Firefox (Linux)

Present setup:

Does NOT work firefox 102.7.0esr on debian 11.6 bullseye 5.10.162-1 (x86-64) firefox 110.0 on Ubuntu MATE 22.04 LTS 5.15.0-58 (x86-64)

Works chromium 109.0.5414.119 on debian 11.6 bullseye 5.10.162-1 (x86-64)

I am able to register and authenticate with security devices Yubikey NEO (without FIDO2) and Yubikey 5 NFC (FIDO2 compliant) on several sites (eg. pypi, google..) using Chrome or Chromium but now not with Firefox at all. It has not worked for at least the last few updates. Changing settings in about:config or plugging/unplugging keys, stopping every Firefox plugin etc. don't help. Neither does a fresh Firefox install without any super-security-settings.

Testing sites like Yubico's own or Okta's works fine using Chromium but not Firefox.

From what I can see this is not especially related to FIDO2 (Webauthn). pypi seems to use U2F which should work just fine with Firefox since way back.

I haven't tested Firefox for Windows but Chrome browser for Windows 10 works fine (which I tested first when Firefox didn't cut the mustard), I therefore expect it to work also on Chrome browser for Linux. Just to check if this was related to a debian bullseye package, I tested it on Ubuntu MATE too, which didn't do the trick. Haven't done any more testing than that on MATE.

This seems like a strictly firefox problem. -What to do?

Yours, Kaare

WHERE IS MY BOOKMARKS TOOLBAR??? Every time I update Firefox (now 109), I end up with all kinds of problems! NOW, I can't see my bookmark toolbar. All the help articles tells me how to show it or how to bookmark a page, which I already did multiple times. But this issue is never solved. If I can't get this resolved, I'm going to MS Edge.

so, my computer is getting old, and because of that, it's slowing then. Firefox isn't helping much because it uses too many processes and memory. i tried deleting some extensions, I tried using task manager to close separate processes but i always end closing the wrong one and closing firefox completely i tried going to dom.ipc.processCount and change the count to 1. I'm so confused, it's slowing down my games i play.

Since the last Firefox update, I've noticed an issue whenever I launch the browser. I have it set up so that I have multiple tabs open, and it's set up so that when Firefox starts up, it opens all of the previous tabs and starts me on the tab I was on when I closed the browser previously.

Now whenever I start Firefox, it opens to the last tab I was on, but said tab opens on my current homepage instead of the website that tab was on previously. I experimented by changing my homepage to "Youtube.com", picked a different open tab, closed Firefox and opened it again and sure enough, the tab was now on the Youtube page instead of what it had been previously.

Is this just a bug of the current Firefox version, or is there something in settings I can do to fix this?

Hello, I was using my headphones for watching YouTube on Firefox but then I unplugged them and the audio has stopped playing. I thought the issue was with the volume of my speakers, but the audio worked on any other app. So I plugged my headphones again and I could hear the audio from them. Anything I can do for fixing this (I even restarted the PC but the audio only plays with headphones)?

Hello,

I've just downloaded firefox, making the switch from chrome. Doing so I've migrated a couple of tabs and extensions I had. Totally it was 50 tabs, with 6 extensions, I've downgraded now with the switch and it's only 37 tabs and 2 extensions, even so firefox is using more ram than google by a large amount. With 50 tabs open, chrome was using 1.5gigabytes of memory. With the same 37 tabs and extensions, firefox is currently using 6 gigabytes of memory.

The tabs used are from reputable sources, so firefox shouldn't be breaking on these websites. The extensions I am using at the moment on firefox is, Ublock origin, Dark Reader.

As far as reputation goes, firefox should be using less Ram than chrome. Is there a setting I should know about to lower such performance issues? Firefox acceleration is ON.

Thank you for any answers.

I can connect bluetooth devices to my SurfaceGo and successfully direct audio output to them using Chrome, Edge, or internal sound files. But in Firefox the audio only goes thru the internal speaker no matter which audio output device I select. Is there some setting I need to fix so that Firefox will speak to bluetooth devices?

Firefox is suggesting usernames on multiple websites that I access regularly. However, I have the saved logins feature turned off in Firefox.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords - it shows all of these options turned off.

When I access Settings > Privacy & Security > Logins and Passwords > Saved Logins... - it indicates No Logins Found / No Synced Logins found.

I do have Firefox Sync turned on to sync between devices, but since it indicates "No Synced Logins" it doesn't appear this is coming from another device. I have checked multiple devices and found they all show "No Synced Logins"

Only happening in Firefox. I am not getting these suggested logins in Edge or Chrome.

Happening across all my Windows 10 and 11 devices that have Firefox sync enabled. 2 x Windows 11 Pro 22H2 (build 22621.819) 1 x Windows 10 Pro 22H2 (build 19045.2364)

Firefox 108.0 on all Windows devices, but it started before updating to 108.

I have not yet tried resetting Firefox - hoping to use that as a last resort.

Any suggestions on where else to look or what I should try?

I am sire this is a Firefox problem - I have successfully watched videos using BING browser - same videos go black on Firefox. I have refreshed Firefox, cleared cache, restarted Firefox - cleaned cookies. Turned accelerator off then back on - because nothing changed. Does not do this with all videos, just some - some You Tube videos play, others do not. I have Windows 10 and McAfee Live Safe - all programs are current and up to dated.

As per old thread at: https://support.mozilla.org/zu/questions/1365405 which has since been archived.

As of version 113, this solution is being suppressed. I occasionally see the x appear briefly on the left when a tab is selected, but then it reverts. So far I have not been able to work out what setting is overriding this function, so I've just rolled back to 112 and used the "--allow-downgrade" flag on the firefox shortcut so I can still load my old profile, but understand this is not a safe option in the long term.
