I use Firefox on a PC to access Facebook (website, not app). This week the Messenger/Chat feature stopped working. I click the icon and it opens but nothing appears in the box, it just hangs. There is an option to open in its own window, but that also is blank - no past messages, no contact names, no ability to start new message. When I log onto Facebook in Edge, Messenger works fine in Facebook.

I've tried everything I found on the internet for this issue - updated and refreshed Firefox, cleared history/cache/cookies/site data, uninstalled and reinstalled Messenger, refreshed Facebook to initial settings, used Firefox in troubleshooting mode, reset everything, turned off browser, turned off my computer, used shift key to reload tab - nothing has worked. There are some instructions about stuck cookies, but I didn't understand them so I didn't try that one thing. I've gone into every menu I can find to try to figure out this issue, which isn't the end of the world, but I would appreciate some other ideas for what is suddenly causing this. Because now I have to redo all of my settings and preferences and logins and the problem still isn't fixed.

I want to use Classic Bing as my homepage on Firefox. But, Microsoft has shoved New Bing down our throats for most of the year. There's a large white search box AND an enormous gray box "Introducing the New Bing." Both of these boxes take up half of the homepage, and completely obscure the Bing daily image, the only reason I use Bing. How in the world can Firefox help me get rid of these New Bing annoyances and let me enjoy the Bing daily images?

Same as the question.

The display shows some icons on the last tabs I opened but it seems only some basic website layout is loaded but all the details are gone. Like text, button borders, even the exit, fullscreen and minimize buttons. I have seen that this has been an issue for quite some time before so I am looking if there is a fix or a workaround. I have and Nvidia graphics card and drivers if that means anything. And my swap file is 20 GB and my RAM is 16 so the space shouldn't be a problem. It gets fixed when I turn off Firefox but not when I refresh tabs.

The crazy thing is that when I take a screenshot inside firefox (with firefox integrated screenshot option, like when I press right click and then take screenshot. I can see the text so it seems like it is a display problem but this only happens with firefox and not other apps.

Appreciate all the help. I will ask of ubuntu formums next if I don't find a solution here.

Thank you all for reading and answering!

Hello.

My name is Kris and I have been a life-long Firefox user. Recently I have come across this great Firefox Onebar CSS style, which I have become obsessed with: https://codeberg.org/Freeplay/Firefox-Onebar, which aims to modify the Firefox default appearance. I have installed it according to instruction and introduced few tweaks offered for consideration iin the aforementioned link:

  • onebar.hide-all-URLbar-icons
  • onebar.disable-https-truncate
  • onebar.disable-single-tab

This is the most far I have gone without further ruining the browser by manually editing the Userchrome.css file.

Could I please request your help with adjusting said file content to make minor changes? My expectations are to leave everything untouched besides the following:

  • all flexible spaces are removed
  • the Extensions button is removed
  • the List All Tabs button is removed
  • the Home and Refresh buttons are permanently visible and aligned to the left of URL bar, followed by conditionally visible Back and Forward arrows upon their activation (they seem to be in the URL bar already however are invisible)
  • the Hamburger is permanently visible and aligned to the right of the URL bar(it seems to be in the URL bar already, but is invisible)
  • the search box is aligned to the left, but is preceded by Home, Refresh buttons and Navigation arrows

The Navigation arrows and Hamburger menu invisibility issue might have to do with the colour that has assumed the same one as the theme URL bar background.

If you could please modify that style for me, that would be so great, indeed. I have been obsessed with that ever since I have discovered it. Alternatvely, please direct me to a forum/IRC channel where I can place that request.

Thank you, hank you, thank you. Please, respond. Kris.

This happens at random intervals, mostly when firefox is being left idle.

Since it starts >1000 threads, it easily fills ram and swap, then get killed by OOM killer. Hence no crash reports.

I'll upload a gist with OOM details from dmesg and journalctl, if there is a way to get debug info for this, please let me know.

browser no longer loads gmail.com account with option selction at the bottom right for slow html connection - a better interface for me

It used to automatically give me this selective option when opening the gmail account link... but that link has gone away in place of something much more cumbersome to negitiate.

Can you give me back my slow html gmail.com interface selection link like always before now?

Just spent ages with Barclaycard chat who continued to say Firefox does not support pdf even though I said I was downloading on many other sites no problems. On Barclaycard site I did a transaction search and downloaded the result as a pdf OK. pdf downloads open directly in Adobe reader. Trying to download a statement does nothing, no error, just nothing. Microsoft Edge works ok. Been using Firefox for years on this site no problem. A latest Firefox update problem?

The "Digital Advisor" page on vanguards website (after logging in) seems to default to a white background even when in dark mode, resulting in the page being unreadable due to the light gray/off-white text. It seems to only be on the digital advisor page, though. When viewing other accounts or sections, dark mode seems to work correctly.
