I need to shrink the size of my tabs, which remains constant no matter how many are open. If I have four open, I get the "+" for a new tab at the end of the tab bar. If there are five open, the tabs consume the entire width of the browser window and the "+" sign disappears. It is not found in the "customize toolbar" menu. I have tried restoring tool bar defaults and changing the uidensity to 1, but neither change shrinks the size of the tabs or gives me the "+" option.

What do I need to do to get back to the way it used to work?

Hi, I am using Firefox 118.0 for Fedora that comes with my Linux distribution (Fedora 38 Kinoite). Everything was working fine, but as of today, when I try to start Firefox from a taskbar, my entire desktop goes black for a second and then returns to normal with Firefox not starting as if I didn't click on the icon at all. However, if I open the Terminal and run Firefox from there, everything works fine. I am not sure if the problem is related to Firefox, KDE Plasma or Fedora, so I will start here. I attach my system info below.

Terminal output (Firefox works fine from here): $ firefox Crash Annotation GraphicsCriticalError: |[0][GFX1-]: vaapitest: ERROR (t=0.40708) [GFX1-]: vaapitest: ERROR Crash Annotation GraphicsCriticalError: |[0][GFX1-]: vaapitest: ERROR (t=0.40708) |[1][GFX1-]: vaapitest: VA-API test failed: failed to initialise VAAPI connection.

Mouse is Logitech MX Master 3 for business. When I scroll on Maps to zoom out or in, it zooms all the way out or in, even when I just do one "scroll click". Scrolling up and down works fine on other websites. Using the scroll wheel for zoom in Google Maps in other browsers (latest versions of Google Chrome, MS Edge, Brave) works as expected/fine, there it only zooms out/in one level.

It's not a new issue, it's been here for a long time, I just haven't bothered doing anything about it.

I have found another old thread about the same issue and the suggestion was to disable hardware accelleration. I tried that and it made the scrolling worse, but same thing happens, just slower and with choppiness. I have tried running troubleshooting mode. Still the same thing.

The subject website pge.com has blocked Firefox apparently because new function that they have instituted features that Firefox cannot support. The subject website states it does not support Firefox. Is this refusal to support on the subject website a known problem? I have searched the Firefox Help without results. Is this even considered a problem? I appreciate Firefox and would like to see it be a supported browser on the subject website.

When I select in Settings>Privacy & Security>History, that a history should never be saved and close the Settings tab, the next time I go to Settings, the option is replaced by the setting, that saves a history according to customisation and there's a check mark to always use the Private Mode. Apparently Firefox doesn't keep or save the setting. I learned from https://support.mozilla.org/de/kb/privater-modus that saving a history according to customisation with the option to always use the Private Mode enabled, is the same as never saving a history, nevertheless it should be possible to keep the setting (as the setting exists). How can I solve the problem?

Hi; Search engine does not open in new tab. This is not how it used to work. Not sure when this started, possibly when windows updated to Win11(2 weeks ago), but not sure. I think there used to be a setting for opening a search in new tab, but I can not find it. I have "Add search bar in toolbar" checked. I use DDG as search engine. I did lookup in FF help but found 10yr old answers. I am sure many things have changed since then.

Also when searching FF help is there a way to sort by newest first?

TIA

After upgrading Ubuntu from 18.04 to 22.04, I attempted to import my old profile data into the new version of Firefox (118.0.2). All attempts following the instructions at [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-user-data-missing-after-fire...] failed.

Following the instructions at [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-run-firefox-when-profile-missing...], I deleted the profile.ini file.

Since then, Firefox does not open. I still get the message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." The only option is to press the OK button at which point, FIrefox closes.

There is no current information in the crash logs and I can't find any error logs.

Although I have disabled all relevant "sync" settings in Firefox, the browser is still syncing tabs across my MacBookAir and my iMac.

To make matters worse, tabs in Chrome and Safari sync to Firefox tabs across devices as well. The sync occurs in both directions.

I am not logged into Chrome or my gmail account.

Specs: MacBookAir: early 2015/ OS v. 12.7 (Monterey) iMac: Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017 / OS 12.6.8 (Monterey)

Things I've tried:

  • Turning off syncing in Firefox on both devices.
  • Signing out of Firefox from both devices.
  • Disabling "sync open tabs" via Firefox preferences
  • Renaming devices from within Firefox Sync. (The name always reverts to the previous one.)
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Deleting cache from both Firefox and Chrome.
  • Restarting

Images are from toolbar on iMac when Firefox is open on both computers. Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks!

Youtube playlist videos won't play continuously after 2-3 video

Hello, everyone.

4-5 days ago, I've noticed weird YouTube playlist behavior. When I start playlist and switch to a different tab (or minimize browser) first video will play normally and it will autoplay the next one. But after finishing playing 2d video (3d in some cases) video will just stop at the end of playbar and not autoplay the next one in playlist. Playlist for example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=giUY_pEKTzY&list=OLAK5uy_nKmglmCCbx14WeFyH8e7YGYcL5skYwnp0&index=1

It's rather easy to replicate, I can record desktop video if needed.

Expected behavior: I can start YouTube playlist playing and switch to a different tab or minimize browser and playlist will only stop after playing last video in said playlist (unless "Loop playlist" option is enabled).

What I've tried to do so far: 1) Googling: I only was able to find old thread and the culprit was extension: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/952608 2) Disabling Extensions and confirming issue in Troubleshoot Mode: Did not help 3) Clear cache & cookies for YouTube: Did not help 4) "Allow Audio and Video" autoplay for YouTube: Did not help 5) Confirming issue in another browser: Works as intended in Opera 6) Checking about:config: I'm not that savvy with Firefox config to understand what may cause an issue. Tried to change media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground to False. Did not help, rolled it back to True.

What I have noticed: 1) Firefox recent update: 118.0.2 October 10, 2023: Correlates when I started experiencing this issue. 2) YouTube playlists plays next video continuously just fine if I don't minimize browser or switch to a different tab. 3) There is a Firefox extension that does exactly what I don't want in my experience: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/no-playlist-autoplay-for-yt/ I installed it just to check. And yes, it does what expected and it is similar to what I'm experiencing. Although it stops playlist after finishing first video, my issues go into the affect after playing first video. (Deleted it after testing)

Before posting I've tried a few different things and here where things gets extremely weird: 1) It works just fine in Firefox if I log out from my YouTube account: (Incognito/Main tab) Do not work if I'm logged in, even in Incognito. However... 2) It works just fine in Opera if I'm logged in my YouTube account. 3) It works just fine if I open playlist in mini-player. (Current workaround)

After all that weirdness I attempted to Clear cache & cookies for YouTube and it did not help once again.

P.S. Yes, I use YouTube as a music player. :)

There are also thousands of other profile files in folders from previous dates.

What is the purpose of this many profile files, and how do I stop their creation in such quantities?

as of 2023/09/29 hulu, netflix, prime and disney+ are not playing videos on firefox, after making zero changes to settings or configuration.

I tested Netflix on Google Chrome and videos played, confirming this is a Firefox issue. I cleared recent/all history and changed passwords for those sites. Netflix logs me out if I attempt to play content. Speedtest reports 200 mb/s. Mozilla VPN is installed but turned off. Netflix sign in reports a new device/login in my state which is different from the VPN setting so this confirms that the VPN is not active and blocking content. HBO/Max videos play correctly and that site does not have the same issues. Firefox has crashed numerous times in the last two weeks. Sometimes just a single tab, sometimes a full application insta-quit.

I prefer to compartmentalize usage across different browsers for privacy/security reasons and would like to continue to use Firefox for these streaming services.

Hello,

I deployed my NextJS app on Vercel, but I cannot access my deployed app through firefox because of HSTS.

I tried to access several sites with domain .vercel.app but the issue persists.

I can access all sites with ".vercel.app" domain just fine on other browsers except Mozilla Firefox.

I already looked for solution on the internet such as:

  1. Removing entry on SiteSecurityServiceState.txt
  2. Forget site
  3. Clear browser cache & history
  4. Restart browser

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you for your time and attention.
