I have Firefox 107.0b5 (64-bits) Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 I use Ubuntu Mainline to update to newer kernels. Never had any problem doing that. I am now on 5.19.15. But when I upgrade to kernel 6 (which is now at 6.0.5) Firefox tabs crash. Reloading doesn't help. Each new tab I open gives the same crash message. I have to restart to get Firefox going again. So I removed kernel 6 and reverted back to kernel 5.19 and have no problems any more. But question, what is the problem between kernel 6 and firefox? Does anybody else experience this problem?

I have no other problems with kernel 6 with other programs or hardware or whatever, only firefox tabs crash...

We have an Ubuntu computer that opens Firefox in Kiosk mode automatically when the computer boots.

This computer is connected to a TV and is used as an informational dashboard. No user interaction is required, so no keyboard or mouse is connected.

Every so often, Firefox updates (among other updates) and the computer reboots overnight. When booting after a Firefox update, it shows a "thank you for loving firefox" message instead of the specified URL. The easiest fix is to hold the power button and manually reboot when this happens since there is no keyboard and it's quicker than logging in via SSH.

Is there a way to prevent this message from showing after updating? We want to keep the automatic updater enabled to keep it up to date, but this is not desirable behavior.

The tool tip colour for the Downloads is white text over a yellow background - it's practically impossible to read. Perhaps this is an error with the release, but if not, can this extreme lack of textual contrast be changed? I need dark / black text on light backgrounds.

I'm using Ubuntu Mate 22.04, Firefox 106.0.1 SNAP install. I setted to TRUE the option browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir , when I open a document from a web page like .docx or .xlsx I can see the window that ask me how to manage the file, if I choice to open it (not download), Firefox present the option "Open with System Handler (default)" but nothing happens. Please remember that if I download the file and double click it, Libreoffice is called and opens the file. If I select "Choose other" Firefox opens an empty list of apps. In settings I can't change the option "System default". How can I fix this?

In my firefox the file input is not functioning at all.

EX: I go to https://www.w3schools.com/tags/tryit.asp?filename=tryhtml5_input_type_file and try and use any of the file inputs there - they just do nothing.

Same with the file inputs on this support form page. None of them work for me.

I am using a Dell Inspiron 3847 with the standard keyboard which came the system years ago

Recently, when viewing a large online page, when I try to scroll down, the scroll doesn't start until about two seconds after I press my scroll key (which is the lower-middle key of the 4 keys between my right-hand "Ctrl" key and the "0" of the 10-key keyboard at the far right of the keyboard).

This delay started happening a few weeks ago. I do not know whether something I did caused it.

How can I scroll my view starting immediately, rather than having to wait two seconds for it to start?

On my main laptop I built a nice homepage with shortcuts that I use regularly. I would like this exact homepage on all the devices where I sign in with my Firefox account. Instead, every time I sign into a new device and sync, my homepage is completely destroyed and scrambled on all devices, including my main laptop and I have to painstakingly recreate the homepage I want. What is going wrong here? How can I set up one homepage on one device that will be synced to all other devices?

Rendering is completely broken after the upgrade to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS. See attached image. This particular render is of the advanced preferences page, or actually the prompt warning that it could break something is somewhere in there. The mountains are my desktop, it's all alpha channel in Firefox. Nothing else seems broken, and other apps and games, both using GPU acceleration and not, are working fine.

I have removed and reinstalled firefox (snap remove firefox then snap install firefox) but did not delete all of the history files in between. (I am posting this from a different browser, since Firefox is unusable.)

I first realized an issue with downloading PDFs through the Firefox viewer - I cannot. The download button does nothing, there is no prompt, no popup, and no file downloaded. I have also tried to print to pdf, that also seems to fail.

Today I realized I also cannot attach any files to an email through Gmail in Firefox, which is now leading me to believe that the software is unable to interface with my files at all.

Things I've tried include: - Turning off popup blocker - Refreshing Firefox in the ->Help->More Troubleshooting Information Menu - Starting Firefox in safe mode - Reinstalling through snap

The only way I can currently download files is through wget, and the only way I can send attachments is by installing Google Chrome, which is kind of a last resort for me.

I am running Ubuntu 22.04, this is on Firefox 106.0, though it didn't work last update either.

Thanks for any help


Edit: I have been googling for answers but after posting this question a similar thread popped up, the solution is to install the following packages:

I see an archived question that's similar but no real answer was provided.

I'm running Ubuntu 22 and I've checked to see if there's a way to only mute Firefox but so far I have not found anything. Chrome works fine. Videos and audio clips play fine. My Audacity and other editing tools work fine. Only Firefox refuses to play any audio.

Youtube live streams work fine on windows, but they don't work at all under Linux. Firefox is up to date on both my operating systems that I dual-boot. Getting an NS_BINDING_ABORTED error in the network console. I deleted my profile to be sure it wasn't due to any extensions or settings I've changed, and the problem remains. The Linux itself is also a fresh installation, and I had to download a tgz version and remove the snap to get the latest, because Ubuntu was stuck at 99.

I upgraded my laptop to Ubuntu 22.04 and am running FireFox 102.01 (64-bit) now.

I noticed that (by default, at least) the FireFox titlebar has disappeared. What would have been its contents are shown on the tab-label, though I usually have enough tabs open that only a few letters of the title are visible.

That being said, about 75% of the space is empty on the Menu Bar, which only lists File Edit View History Bookmarks Tools Help Why not show the page title in a pane on the right-end (or middle) of the Menu Bar?

New dual boot Linux configuration and all new install. Ubuntu 22.04 (all updates). Firefox 105.0.1. I am trying to create a new profile on a shared (ext4) partition that can be accessed from either boot side. I have tried over a dozen different configurations. I can create profiles anywhere on my local disk (also ext4). I cannot create a profile on the shared partition. Error msg: "Profile couldn’t be created. Probably the chosen folder isn’t writable." I have checked/verified permissions/directories/access/etc, checked for typos, tried using links or direct access. I tried copying a profile I created on the local disk onto the shared partition and just point to that. Notably when I choose the directory from the partition in the FF profile tool, FF switches the path to the /run/user/(...) tmpfs instead of using the actual directory as chosen. I verified access via this path as well. I even tried modifying the profiles.ini file to the "normal" location. Sorry for the long explanation. I have been configuring new Linux installs since the 90's. I'm stuck. Help??

Bowl.com's IT department has no idea why. I have cleared my cache and history (many times over the last week or so), and nothing seems to work.
