On Linux if I start Firefox when there is no network connection, it is then unable to connect to the internet when it later becomes available (ethernet or wifi). The only solution is to close it and restart when the connection is available. If the connection was available when Firefox started, losing it and restoring it does not cause a problem. Thunderbird has the same problem, but no other program on they system does.

network.dns.disablePrefetch does not help.

This has applied to FIrefox for many years, including the current version 97.0

Hi, Firefox is displaying letters with accents (e.g. letters from Spanish words) incorrectly as Cyrillic letters. This makes a lot of webpages difficult to read. This does not seem to be happening all the time. Neither does it seem to happen in other apps other than Firefox. I have my preferred languages for displaying webpages in Firefox set as En-GB, en, es-es, in that order. Ditto for my wider system settings. In terms of my wider system keyboards I do have Russian installed, in order of preference this is gb > us > es > ru. I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to ensure Spanish and other Latin letters display correctly?

I cannot remove all cookies on shutdown. I wish to ignore white list, or any other limitation, and automatically remove ALL cookies so that, on my next start-up, there is NO memory space taken up with cookies.

If necessary, I will be pleased to have all whitelist contents deleted on each shut-down.

I do want to keep browse history and have past windows open automatically. This question is only about cookies.

I have set up the HISTORY section of Setup to delete all cookies, but no joy.

I am running Firefox 97.0(64-bit) on Ubuntu-Mate 20.04.

Please tell me how I can do this automatically.

Anytime I screen share my entire screen, after a few seconds firefox crashes. I can share a window without issues.

I am running: Firefox 97.0 (64-bit) with a few plugins: lastpass mailvelope fb container

I am on the latest Solus Budgie Linux.

Looking through the crash reports it looks like the issue is with memfd in the libxul.so. Has anyone figured out how to fix this?

I am using version 91.5.0esr (64-bit). Virtually always, the download status shows as failed. Yet, there were files created by the download. I have even been able to go back literally months in the downloads history, click to retry each download, which is then showed as being successful. I did NOT reload the pages whose content I was trying to download. I realize that a browser tends to have a cache, but surely not that big. I'm guessing that showing the status failed is some type of error.

My old Linux computer died and I have removed the still good SSD from it. I have installed the latest Firefox on my new computer and would like to restore the bookmarks and other saved data to the new computer.

I am running Ubuntu 20.04, the old computer was on Ubuntu 18.04.

Can these things be restored, and if so what do I need to do?

How to disable all address bar features ?

I have found a few pages about address rewriting; how do I disable them all ? - searching single word into google (type "keyw" in about:config to disable it) - hiding http when not using https - trying to add "www" and ".com" around a single word when the word did not resolve

I consider most of them as security issues for various reasons.

And when editting an URL, I want firefox to keep showing the full url as it was invoqued; not add https randomly, or removing http other days. And the more I disable some, the more new ones appear.
