Hi,

I only want to mention that Firefox hangs on download, if I want to download VMWare Player for Windows from https://my.vmware.com/de/web/vmware/free#desktop_end_user_computing/vmware_workstation_player/15_0|PLAYER-1555|product_downloads

After clicking the button for the download destination nothing happens and reacts anymore and I have to kill Firefox. The dialog for choosing the download destination won't be opened. (Winodws 8.1 Home 64bit)

IE 11 works well.

Hello -

Windows10 64 FF 76.0.1

I have FB container and multi-containers. I allowed livejournal.com into my FB container but I cannot post comments. If I disable FB container and just keep multi-containers it works fine. If I allowed the site into the container shouldn't it work normally?

Problem: videos do flicker. Especially visible on youtube with static background. Flicker is only present when video is playing, it doesn't flicker when video is stopped.

It doesn't flicker in safe mode. However, disabling every single addon and plugin I have and using default theme does nothing. Nor does enabling or disabling hardware acceleration.

What is this secret magic that safe mode have and unsafe mode doesn't?

Firefox 76.0.1, Ubuntu 18.04, Nvidia 440.82

UPD: figured out that this is happening only and every time when bookmarks toolbar is present O_o

Old subj was: Firefox 74, 75, 76, videos flicker when not in safe mode, tried everything, nothing helps

PS: how do I break a line here?

Hello everyone,

Is it possible to control Firefox 76 on Linux from D-bus ? I listed all available services with "qdbus" utility, but there is nothing like firefox/mozilla. Also, I browsed source code, and I saw D-bus support seems to be there. Thank you

Browsing history weirdly limited view

From a non-programmer who used Chrome a lot until recently:

If I hit Cntrl-H like I would in Chrome, I get a frustratingly limited view. Why does it not show timestamps? So I spend time searching and find out about the Library window, and Control+Shift+H. Okay, so that's at least making it possible to see timestamps. Typing this right now, I don't remember if I had to manually add a column to see timestamps, but if I did Jesus Christ. I nearly installed some other software (MZHistoryView) before finding out about Control+Shift+H, just to see timestamps.

Also, every time I press the awkward Control+Shift+H hotkey, it resets the view to "Today". I don't know why it wouldn't default to "Just keep scrolling for as many days as you want". If I search for a specific site immediately after opening the window, then it includes entries for more days than just today. But before searching, it cuts off my view to just today. What's the point of that? Who would want such a restriction as the default view?

How to prevent firefox from restarting previous session when restarting

I have a page with Javascript that makes server calls in the background. When Firefox restarts, that page does not show up but I can see the calls being made from the server logs and noticed that there are a number of children processes under firefox, like:

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container -childID 6 -isForBrowser -prefsLen 56 -prefMapSize 258337 -sbStartup -sbAppPath /Applications/Firefox.app -sbLevel 3 -sbAllowAudio -sbAllowWindowServer -parentBuildID 20200507114007 -appdir /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/browser -profile /Users/cyboBook/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/uoc2ga4o.default 2467 gecko-crash-server-pipe.2467 org.mozilla.machname.937263303 tab

I'm not sure which one is the one with the script but, after going down one by one, I usually kill the one with the calls before killing all the active tabs.

The "Restore previous session" checkbox is off in the System Preferences so, when I restart the browser, I don't see my previous session, which is what I want. However, it seems like firefox is restarting previous tabs anyway but not showing or rendering them so they are only partially restarted--enough so that the javascript starts running but not enough so I actually see that a web page exists and is causing a runaway script in the background.

This seems like a bug to me. Not sure how long a fix will take but, in the meantime, Question: can I/should I clear out the directory that has data for firefox to restore the session that I don't to have restored? Is it in the .../Profiles/XXXXX.default file (on OSX)?

Thanks!

Morning, every time when I click on a link on a website which should open a pdf document, firefox start opening several (infinite) new tabs with the document. Even if I close Firefox completely the process will continue if i open Firefox again. This can only be stopped when I smash the Strg+W Puttons to close all the Tabs faster then they are opening.

I hope someone can help me with this. It is really annoying when it happens.

Thanks and best regards.
