FireFox latest ver, download window resize to smaller fail - now 1/4-ish screen

FireFox: 107.0 (64 bit) Mozilla FireFox for Linux Mint OS: Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon

Issue: On this FireFox latest version, the download window cannot be resized to smaller than (roughly) 1/4 of entire screen. (screen-shot attached.)

Attempted: Mouse left-click grab of all corners & sides to drag window smaller - failed!

Note: Download window can be resized *bigger*, showing this window has now been coded with a very large minimum size that is almost 1/4 of full screen

- this was not the case in previous versions.

Micro-annoyances add up, people switch to Chrome (sorry to use the "C" word!)

I have unsubscribed from all newsletter after receiving the first email but days later I'm still getting emails from Firefox (e.g. Superpower #4: See if your info has been leaked).

This is an incredibly bad user experience and to my knowledge illegal in the EU.

I'm probably still within that journey but the journey should terminate the moment I clicked unsubscribed.

Hi, everyone. My multirow bookmarks no longer seem to work since my latest update to 107.0 (64 bit). My computer crashed and when it came back up Firefox no longer worked. I reinstalled it and have a bit of cleanup to do, but everything works now except my faithful (up-to-now) multirow toolbar. Here's the code in my userChrome.css file.

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar */

  1. PersonalToolbar {
 /* Override max-height */
 min-height: unset !important;
 max-height: unset !important; */

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox:first-child {
   display: block

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems {
   display: flex;
   flex-wrap: wrap

}

Previously, this was in my profile folder. If I move this out of the profile folder, my browser works fine but there is no multi-row toolbar. If I put it back into the profile folder, I have a multi-row toolbar, but no contentd in the main window.

I am perplexed. Help? --elizabeth

OneDrive web (onedrive.live.com) doesn't show any files/folders. The area where the files/folders should be displayed is just empty. Now the reason I believe this might be a Firefox issue is because I don't have that problem when I use OneDrive on a Private window. OneDrive on a Private window works just fine, the issue is on the regular non-private window where I wan't my session to stay open.

I already tried clearing 'everything' including cookies, site settings and offline website data. I checked all the boxes and the issue persist.

See attached screenshot.

Thanks!

Private is unchecked. I've selected Clear History Time Range Everything, all boxes checked. Settings When closed Firefox should delete all boxes checked.

Remember Browsing History and it doesn't update when I open the sidebar. Last Visited is the only selection that shows any sites and it doesn't update as I browse new sites. By Date and Site, Most Visited, by site, by date do not show any sites.

I've even uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled and not sure how but it has the same history as well as last tabs opened.

I recently got a new computer, and in trying to get all my old accounts and what not synced up, I noticed that Twitter videos weren't playing for me and giving me a generic "The video could not be played", which was odd and annoying, but not the end of the world. I then went over to Twitch and got the "Your browser encountered an error while decoding the video. (Error #3000)". Meanwhile, Youtube works perfectly fine.

I tried clearing cache/cookies, tried on incognito mode in case it was an issue with one of my extensions, all to no avail - when I swapped over to Edge just to check if it was a computer issue versus a Firefox issue, both sites functioned in Edge just fine. Is there anything else I can try troubleshooting in Firefox to see what's causing this short of trying to uninstall/reinstall again?

So I just updated to version 106.0.1, and I noticed something new in the far right corner of the screen, an arrow with a dropdown function listed as view all tabs. I have no need for this and tried to use the customize toolbar option to remove it. It did not work. How do I get rid of this thing? It's just kinda taking up space on the screen as I doubt I'm ever gonna use it.

Any tips here?

"OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc." plugin will sit in the "will be installed shortly" status forever if you have HTTPS-Only mode enabled. I have been pulling my hair out for the last few days trying to figure out why I couldn't play YouTube or many other sites videos.

Turns out the site that the library is downloaded from has a bad certificate installed: https://ciscobinary.openh264.org/libopenh264-2.3.0-linux64.6.so.bz2

``` Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for ciscobinary.openh264.org. The certificate is only valid for the following names: a248.e.akamai.net, *.akamaihd-staging.net, *.akamaihd.net, *.akamaized-staging.net, *.akamaized.net

Error code: SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN ```

Locking this thread.
Please continue here: [/questions/1398430]
When loading a page from a domain I haven't recently visited, it will almost always return the "Server Not Found - Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site," error message. If I reload the page, however, it will load. Sometimes I have to reload 2-6 times before it works, but it always eventually succeeds. When it does work, it often times fails to load certain elements like fonts, images, embedded videos, and occasionally whole stylesheets--things that often require calls to third party domain. Again, reloading the page (sometimes multiple times) will cause the page to load properly.

I have already tried:

  • Different browsers on same computer (issue does not occur)
  • Firefox on different computers with different OS on same network (issue does not occur)
  • Cleared cache (issue persists)
  • Troubleshooting/safe mode (issue persists)
  • Deleted prefs file (issue persists)
  • Disabled DNS prefetching (issue persists)

As Title,

Whenever I try to go full screen and hover to the top of the browser, It originally showed all my tabs, but recently it has not been doing that. When I hover over and over, the tabs maybe appear 10% of the time, but whenever I click somewhere else other than the Tab Bar, it disappears.

I think this bug happened ever since I enabled "Hide bookmark toolbar". I have since reverted it back, but the error is still the same. Weird, since my tabs disappear since it has nothing to do with bookmarks.
