Videos make a crackling noise when I play them until I terminate some of the ChildID processes that are running in memory. I suspect that these processes have a problem syncing with PulseAudio on Linux Mint. Is there a workaround or do I have to fix it?

I need to ask Mozilla to fix a bug in my/their account page. I can't add my secondary email because my emails all use the same name even though they are at different sites. How do I get developers to fix this simple authentication problem since we can't talk to any tech support?

Hi, I'm using Firefox and Nightly both updated to latest versions on Feren OS (Linux). The drop downs, option menus, bookmarks etc. all have transparent background on Nightly. Stable version has black background and white text as it should be.

I've tried userChrome.css but it doesn't work. Changing font-sizes do work which proves that Nightly looks for this file at startup. I've tried changing background on these CSS elements:

  1. main-menubar menupopup
  2. PlacesToolbarItems menupopup > hbox

My OS details are: Operating System: Feren OS 2021.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.21.5 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.82.0 Qt Version: 5.15.2 Kernel Version: 5.8.0-55-generic OS Type: 64-bit

I need to report a situation which may be of interest to Mozilla administration personnel where a major Canadian corporation is stating inflammatory remarks about Firefox security and is restricting Firefox access to customer online accounts. Not knowing a more direct alternative, I am seeking a contact within Mozilla management through this forum with whom I can privately discuss the situation. Any directives would be appreciated.

An Ad-on disappeared from my toolbar. It is still installed, but I can't use it. I deinstalled it and installed it new. But it does not appear again. It is not hidden in - what you might call in English - the "overflow bar". What can I do to make it appear again?

Some solid colours on certain webpages do not appear whilst on Firefox. The background will show up instead of the colour the image should be. I have tried to delete the cookies and cache on Firefox as well as trying Firefox in troubleshoot mode to no avail. Whilst writing this question, I have also discovered that taking a screenshot of the issue shows how the image should look as opposed to what the screen shows. Attached are some images of the issues I am facing, two images are of what appears on the screen and one image is the screenshot from the webpage which is what should have been shown. Apologies for some of the photos, I had to take a photo of the screen with my phone to show the issue. I have also closed the browser multiple times and restarted my computer, any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Starting sometime recently, dropdown menus such as the main menu and the library menu give a white rectangle the size of the menu. Restarting in safe mode does not help. Using a new, empty profile does help. Exiting, deleting my profile cache directory, and restarting does not help.

This is likely related to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1288037 but that person was helped by deleting the cache directory.

I would prefer not to have to redo all my customizations.

Ever since upgrading to FF89, some websites don't increase the font size when I zoom in using ctrl+mouse wheel. The default seems like 9px, really hard to read.

Facebook is a culprit. Also OctoPi, a local service. Facebook, at least, uses rem units. Doesn't react to zooming in.

Despite selecting Restore previous session in settings, and quitting firefox using Ctrl-Q, firefox does not restore the previously open tabs. I have to click on history -> Restore previous session for the tabs to load.

This issue started recently. Please fix the bug.

Work-around: WebSDR sites won't save memories stored on my computer

Edit: Rewritten from scratch on Wednesday, June 16, 2021:

I am running the new Firefox 89.0 on Linux. Under the Edit menu, the Preferences option is now called Settings.

Please open Settings and search for site data. This displays the pertinent settings for Cookies and Site Data, and for History.

A Web SDR site is a website that gives each of its visitors the ability to tune a Software Defined Radio chip to a different frequency, independent of other users' listening preferences. The audio is streamed back to the user.

It requests that the user supply a user name, often a ham radio operator's callsign. This is used to display on the radio dial where each user is listening. If a name is missing, the user's IP address is used.

A cookie is stored with the user name, and if that cookie survives to the next visit to the site, the name does not have to be re-entered.

The web SDR can allow users to save custom memory presets, and cookies are said to be used to save memory presets "on your computer," and not on the server.

I had set cookie preferences for each site to always allow cookies, and my username was indeed carried over from one browser session to another. But my presets were never saved.

I finally discovered that it was not a cookie, but offline site data storage on my computer that retains these presets.

Under the History section in Preferences of earlier versions of Firefox, I told Firefox to use custom settings, and then I had set first- and third-party cookies to be allowed for the session. I told Firefox to Clear history when it closes, and in the "Settings ..." dialog, I unchecked everything but cache and offline site data. Only cache and offline site data were deleted.

The History section in Settings in FF 89.0 is still set for Firefox to use custom settings, but cookie options are not listed. I still tell Firefox to Clear history when it closes, and the "Settings ..." dialog is the same.

In the Cookies and Site Data section in Settings, I tell Firefox to Delete cookies and site data when it is closed. In the "Exceptions ..." dialog, I enter the address of the website and hit "Always" for everything entered, to save the site's cookies and data from the bulldozer.

It occurred to me that there are two duplicate means to clear cookies and site data.

I went to History and opened the "Settings ... " dialog again and cleared the checkbox for offline site data.

NOW my stored memories on the Web SDR sites are still here! In Firefox 89, do not use History's Clear history when Firefox closes to delete cookies or site data, for that will blow away the cookies that were saved in the Cookies and Site Data's Exceptions!

The browser was overhauled, and History's handling of cookies and site data became obsolete.

I do have a question here: If I am on a site, I can click on the lock in the address bar to retrieve a series of screens that lead me to the Security tab, and to its left, the Permissions tab. By selecting the Permissions tab, I can set the site's permissions for cookies and for persistent storage of site data.

If I set to allow cookies and allow site data in Permissions, does that enter the site address into the Settings' Cookies and Site Data's Exceptions dialog? Or must I still copy the address of the site and go to Settings and enter that in Exceptions also?

Dear All,

I urgently need to retrieve various documents saved in the past as web pages with the Scrapbook extension which I found very easy and useful. Some of them date back to 2008. When I try to reactivate ScrapBook in "Add-ons and Themes" I find that ScrapBook is disabled and that there is no switch to re-enable it. i have access to the ScrapBook folder in the /home/.../.mozilla/firefox/********.default folder. Indeed I find in that folder a lot of data folders titled with the date and time of creation but it is very tedious to search. How can I reactivate ScrapBook or is there another way to easily access all these pages saved with ScrapBook? Firefox extension or standalone software?

Thanks in advance to all!

When printing a pdf from the built-in pdf viewer (pdf.js?) to a network printer, it's so slow as to be unusable. Save the same pdf and open it it in Xreader, click print, and it starts printing immediately. Size of the document seems to play a role; I knew it was slow from trying to print smaller documents in the past, but today I needed a hard copy of a 68MB pdf, and hours later, it still had not printed.

I'm running latest Linux Mint Debian Edition 4 Debbie and latest Firefox in its repositories, 78.11.0esr (64-bit). Printer is Canon imageRunner 2200, it doesn't have any other slow printing problems, as I stated above.

Problem seems to have existed for a long time...
