Linux Since the last 'automatic' update, Firefox hangs when started, but doesn't show any GUI.

Many experiments later, I can report the following progress:

- I started firefox from the command-line, hoping to see some output (no luck there), and eliminating problems with the window manager launcher (XFCE) - Firefox launches, but in triplicate: 3 instances are running (of firefox, _not_ firefox-bin) - There is no console output. - Running inside gdb shows threads entering and exiting, no errors. On ^C, there's just a message about exiting the current thread. - If I kill two of the instances, the GUI appears, so it seems they are blocking each other - I wanted to trace the startup sequence, so I did `strace ./firefox 2> log` and behold, firefox started! This is why I am reporting this on the actual started firefox. - Which makes me suspect a 'race condition' - surely the strace is slowing things down, allowing one instance to create the GUI. Some code which is not lock-protected?

I'm afraid this could happen again in next session, which is why I report this first, before trying to restart FF.

Why is the memory consumption so high?

Is there a way to protect ourselves from such kinds of pages?

Merely typing an email when the tab and window it was in shut down (am using linux mint and most recent FF build.) I have difficulty understanding programmer directions as typically given but can follow a path > to files and folders. I found firefox old backups and sessions folder but none of the session restore files are dated, won't open and won't restore. I wish there was a straight-forward path to restore "my sessions" when issues develop. Just show me where the file path > where the files are > and what to click. Thank you.

I have sent a number of tabs from Firefox on my phone to Firefox on my laptop. Despite phone Firefox saying they had been sent, the tabs never arrived on my laptop's Firefox. Where did they go? How do I get them back? I closed the tabs on my phone already; sending them to my laptop was part of cleaning house on my phone.

Hi,

I am a developer currently working on an open-source solution called GeoNetwork (https://github.com/geonetwork/core-geonetwork/). This application has a Java backend that uses a JSESSIONID cookie to track user sessions. One instance of the application can be accessed anonymously here: https://sextant.ifremer.fr/Donnees/Catalogue

The session cookie is set on the first request to the backend with the following parameters:

Domain: "sextant.ifremer.fr" expirationDate: "Session" HostOnly: true HttpOnly: true SameSite: "None" Secure: true

This application theoretically allows login in from a different origin. For example from https://www.milieumarinfrance.fr/Acces-aux-donnees/Catalogue, which under the hood points to the same backend. We noticed recently that when accessing the application from a different origin in Firefox, the network requests aimed at the "sextant.ifremer.fr" host *do not carry any existing session cookie*, thus rendering authenticated access impossible.

The existing session cookie is correctly used when I add an "allow" exception for the sextant.ifremer.fr origin in the cookies settings of Firefox (see attached screenshot in French). So I figure that it's Firefox that decides not to use any existing cookie when on this origin.

Is there any way to indicate to Firefox that this cookie is legitimate and that it is needed for essential functionalities, without relying on the user allowing the cookie explicitly?

Thanks a lot in advance!

I am trying to open .html files located on my hard drive, but Firefox gives the error:

File not found

Firefox can’t find the file at /usr/share/gimp/2.0/help/en/gimp-pimping.html.

   Check the file name for capitalization or other typing errors.
   Check to see if the file was moved, renamed or deleted.

I can see the files at this location and even when I directly open the files from that location by double clicking them, I get this error. I have seen on Ubuntu forums that this might be a problem with the actual Firefox snap, any official help would be appreciated. Thanks.
