When I try to launch a movie from Netflix I get an screen with an error code F7701-1003. Other browsers I have do not have this problem and play the vifdeo normally.

If you can find out what causes this error code to appear, we would be on the road to solving the problem. BTW, it can play videos on the selection screen but only raises the error when i try to launch the movie. I also have difficulty with News videos where the wait symbol never stops, it just keeps trying to play it and never succeeds.

Hello,

I am trying to understand if there is a way to customize the tab rearranging behaviour.

In particular, the thing I find very unpractical is that, after a tab is closed, the others do rearrange, but after the mouse goes out of the tab bar. This is particularly annoying when I have to close multiple tabs, since thanks to this behaviour, the tabs which I close after the first one are always the unintended ones.

The solution would be to let the tab rearrangement happen instantly after the closure of the tab. In my opinion even without animations, I do not really care about that.

If you have any suggestions let me know.

Thanks in advance!

I have Firefox set up to basically clear itself of all history, cookies, data, etc. each time it closes. As a result this means I need to log into my password manager each time I open a new Firefox session, rather than every 72 hours which is the setting I have put in the password manager itself. I know how to make exceptions for websites, but it's making an exception for an extension that is confusing me. Any help is appreciated!

Hi, I'm not sure if I just cant find the setting or if this is a feature request. I'm using the Firefox Developer edition, and I during web development I often deal with many query Params in the URL. Is there a way to have a long URL be displayed in multiple lines, or even better, one line per query parameter?

I want to attach a file and I click on a button (everything works perfectly on Chrome). When I click, in the console I get this error:

(firefox:3264): Gtk-WARNING **: 13:52:46.781: Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: L’interface « org.freedesktop.portal.FileChooser » n’existe pas pour l’objet à l’emplacement /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop


Of course, nothing happens when I click. I have Ubuntu 22.04 and apparently Firefox in installed with snap, and I have this problem since snap is used to install Firefox.

If it's useful:

This message is the last I'm writing before I definitely move to Chrome. I hope I'll get the help I couldn't find on other places (I saw a lot of answers telling to deactivate snap, adding a ppa or some solutions like these).

I would like to be able to reset links on a webpage to be as if I have never clicked on them, but I am unable to do so. I have tried:

-Resetting all of the cookies, history, etc for that individual website. -Removing the URLs from the links in question from my browser history. -Downloading this extension: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/remove-visited-link/ and using it -Going into settings and changing the visited link color.

Nothing has worked so far. One thing about the website in question is it has its own unique color for visited links---I am wondering if that is causing this? Additionally, this persists whether or not I am signed in to this website.

Thanks.

Hello, the Firefox app often stops responding when I have multiple tabs open or when a more demanding process is running in a tab. Also, Firefox stops responding when I copy a screenshot. I have tried the browser without any extensions and the problem persists. I use EndeavourOS based on Arch linux, I use the current version of the system and Firefox.

Sometimes when a a browser add-on is having trouble, I removed it, then hit undo, and sometimes it works again after that adds it back on. I thought I'd do that today since some were showing blanks instead of their icons. I did one from the manager just fine, but when I removed one from the toolbar instead of the manager, no undo option was presented, and I don't recall which it was. How can I undo, or view recently removed extensions?

Hi Folk,

Firefox runs perfectly smooth in 3840x2160, so this is not a perf issue. However when switching from onboard laptop screen (2k) to my external WQHD screen, Firefox does not refresh, not reacting to input or mouse until I switch back and forth from another window. So it only refresh/repaint when main window looses and gets focus.

I have to restart firefox to make it works again.

Configuration: Linux debian stable (11) (same on PopOS) CPU: intel 8550 / GPU: Intel HD 620 RAM: 16Gb External monitor connected through usb-c 3.1

It does the same with Thunderbird. My Qt apps and terminals (alacritty) are not impacted.

I very rarely reopen my apps because I also very rarely power off my laptop and use sleep mode instead (usually times between actual shutdowns are around a week). So ubuntu snap likes to update apps regardless of app being closed or not. And once in a while I get my firefox instance closed without me doing it, this would be fine if after reopening it all my tabs were in the same place (or at least I could restore them), but they all gone. I can't restore a session, I only have my history and have to reopen all of them manually.

Please don't tell me to use laptop like a normal person or that I can just listen to ubuntu warnings about updates and close software once in a while. The point is that I don't have this issue with other browsers (also using chrome and brave). If one of this counterparts shuts down unexpectedly it always suggests to restore your session on startup. I know firefox has this feature, but it seems to not work in this exact scenario.

Hello,

Since some days I can't upload or download anything using Firefox. Right-click on an image and click "download" - nothing happens. Right-click on a web page and click "Save Page as" - nothing happens. Try to upload a file to DropBox or Google Drive - no popup appears, no error message, no response whatsoever. Opening the downloads list in the browser and trying to open the folders where I had previously downloaded things (when downloading was still working) also has no effect - the folder does not open on the desktop.

So apparently the problem is some kind of broken interaction between Firefox and Ubuntu (Nautilus?)

Downloading and uploading works normally with wget and Chromium.

Steps already tried: - Resetting all browser data - Refreshing the browser - Activating troubleshooting mode

Firefox: 113.0.1 Snap canonical-002 1.0 Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS

I am running Ubuntu 18.04 and the current version of firefox is 112.0.1. The problem has occurred on two different machines.

My Friday routine normally involves updating my computers. Normally, I start firefox and get some preliminary work things out of the way before using sudo apt-get update/upgrade (sudo apt update) to update my system.

However, firefox has interjected and updated itself twice in the past month or so. When it says it has done the update and needs to be restarted, I click the button and it restarts. This would not be a problem since it was going to get updated anyway, however, when I go to start sudo apt-get upgrade to update the rest of my system, I get the following error:

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), is another process using it?

This lock traces back to firefox and persists for several hours. The first time I assumed something weird just happened resulting in the lock not being released when firefox restarted after its update. However, since this is the second time that it has happened there is something going on with your updater not releasing properly. Normally, the lock is released immediately after the updating software is finished updating, however, this is not the case with firefox right now.

Please fix this bug.
