hi, it has been 2 days since firefox starts to behave in an unusual way. when opening many tabs, and if i dont click on them (ie inactive) in 2-3 minutes, they go blank. when i click on an inactive tab, firefox quickly refreshes it and shows the page. example: let's say i have 3 open tabs: tab1, tab2, tab3. i am reading in tab3 for 15mins. in that period, i didnt click on tab2/1. if now i click on tab2, it is blank and no longer displays the content of the page it is supposed to show. then, firefox quickly refreshes the page and displays the true page.

not really sure why this is happening now. never happened before. it is a really annoying behavior as every tab had to be refreshed automatically if i dont click on it in very few minutes. firefox 96.0 ubuntu 18.04. thanks

When typing, for example an email in office 365 webmail, approx 1 in 10 characters is missed. This happens in every session and after reboots. It doesn't seem to matter if i am typing slowly or quickly, and it happens in an incognito browser window too. I am certain that key-presses are being sent, they are just not reflected reliably in the browser. There are more than enough resources available for firefox.

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading

Have followed suggestions to clear this issue without success. On Linux Mint how to remove : Policies, 'Active' "DisableAppUpdates", "True" - "Your browser is being managed by some organization." "Updates disabled by some system administrator"/w more issues, being blocked by the same problem from accessing the internet using a NIC cable, am using Wireless. Have been working with this issue from about 0200 this morning 1/19/22. Used one feature, "about:config" but my problem still is there. The issue with 'Policies' is a little more than I can handle. My FFx v96.0.1, Linux Mint Cinnamon v19.3 at this time, best of my memory, @82 Y/Od; Attempted a ScreenShot and could not reduce the size. Just note: "Your browser is being managed by your organization." is displayed top of all pages in "Settings."

Firefox on my Win 10 desktop seems to be saving logins just fine, but Firefox on my linux laptop isn't. Instead of saving the logins I've actually used (manually) to log into a website, it offers me instead the next time I attempt to log into the website a list of some user IDs I've never used on that website. Why is that?! Anybody have any idea why, where saving logins is concerned, my Windows Firefox is working fine, but my linux Firefox is not? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work
