Ark extracted Version 119 files into /home/Downloads/Firefox/Firefox. I tried ./update from the BASH command line, but didn't know which argument(s) to add to that command. I'm hoping to update Firefox 78.14 ESR to a recent version, whether ESR or not. Thanks for your help.

I have run into an annoyance where I am trying to click on a link in my email to open a new page. Clicking on the link makes a bar show up telling me that Firefox has prevented a popup from being opened (see attached image). I am given the option of managing my preferences / Firefox settings, where I can either go through multiple steps to permanently allow all pop-ups from that website until I restore my original settings, or uncheck a box to permanently allow all pop-ups from all sites until I check that box again. This is annoying because I have no interest in either allowing or disallowing all pop-ups from all websites, or all pop-ups from this specific website, every time I want to open a single pop-up from a specific site. I would rather that the warning bar which tells me that Firefox has blocked a pop-up also display a button allowing me to allow ONLY THIS SPECIFIC POP-UP IN THIS SPECIFIC CASE.

Is this a setting that exists in Firefox? Alternatively, is there a version of Firefox which does have a setting which would allow this? Or is this simply not a functionality that exists for this browser?

Hello, I've got a reproduction issue on France TV live programs which I watch through nordvpn. The picture keeps "jumping" fast up and down in a very bothering way. This doesn't happen when the video is NOT live. I run the latest version of LINUX MINT. What can I do to fix it? The only way I found to stop the issue is to take down the resolution of the live video to its minimum which gives me a disastrous picture but stops the "jumping". I guess you might say there is something wrong with my GPU. The point is that my PC is brand new with an AMD 5600G, new MB, 16Gb of RAM and 500w of PSU. BUT more than anything I have to say that everything WORKS FINE with CHROME. I like FIREFOX I have been using it literally for decades now. (I'm 75). Is there a solution? Looking forward to hearing from you. Thanks in advance. François.

Today when I closed Firefox and reopened it the option to restore previous session was not shown, as a result I have lost half my pinned tabs (I managed to redo the rest from bookmarks) which were vital. I tried going into history but the option was greyed out.

This happened yesterday too but after redoing half my tabs I went to open gmail and it restored all my tabs, I tried the sane today but it failed so am stuck with half my tabs.

Please do not suggest I use synch as I only use one device.

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!

I'm encountering consistent video playback issues on Firefox while running Fedora 38. The error message I receive when attempting to play videos from certain sites, notably LinkedIn and Twitter (now X), is:

  • The media playback was aborted due to a corruption problem or because the media used features your browser did not support.*

Furthermore, when examining Firefox's console while attempting to play a video, I observed the following error:

  • [Child 5999, MediaDecoderStateMachine #1] WARNING: Decoder=7fdb3c55a100 Decode error: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005) - mozilla::MediaResult mozilla::FFmpegDataDecoder<60>::InitDecoder(AVDictionary**): Couldn't open avcodec: file /builddir/build/BUILD/firefox-118.0/dom/media/MediaDecoderStateMachineBase.cpp:166*

Steps to Reproduce: 1. Navigate to LinkedIn or X (previously Twitter). 2. Attempt to play any video content. 3. Observe the aforementioned error.

Additional Details: - OS: Fedora 38 - Firefox version: Initially 117.0.1, then updated to 118, both 64-bit. - This issue does not occur on Google Chrome on the same system. - I have attempted the following troubleshooting steps without success:

 1. Updated Firefox to the latest version.
 2. Enabled DRM content.
 3. Booted Firefox in Safe Mode.
 4. Disabled hardware acceleration.
 5. Cleared cache and cookies.
 6. Used a Flatpak version of Firefox.

This issue has significantly impacted my user experience, and I hope to find a resolution soon. Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

OS - LinuxLite 6.4 fully updated as of this writing FF - 117.0

I just created a new installation of LinuxLite. Upon finding that Firefox was no longer the default browser I installed it. Apparently snapd is a pre-req and it too was installed. The installer does not automatically create a link to launch it and I have to do a search for FF. When I launch it, it seems to run fine. However when I try to restore my bookmarks from a recently created backup, which came from another system, I cannot. From bookmark manager when I select restore and then choose file, nothing happens. No popup window to select the file appears. Likewise when I try to import from an HTML file and choose file, again nothing happens. I imported the bookmarks to Chrome from the HTML file then tried to have FF import from another browser but FF says it can find NO other browser with bookmark, history or password data. Any suggestions?

I accidentally hid the menu bar and toolbars (with an accidental keyboard shortcut, I think), and when I re-enabled them, now the tab bar is above the location bar instead of right above the content windows. How do I move it back? I can't find the "browser.tabs.onTop" setting in about:config, or any check box in the View menu, settings, etc.
