I noticed during a firmware download with the file extension .DAT that Firefox removed the extension. The file was not recognizable during an attempted firmware upgrade afterward. This is a new issue occurring sometime in the past several months, since last firmware update. Firefox preferences are set to download .DAT files. No other settings are listed for that file extension. I verified the issue points toward Firefox by checking the download with another web browser which completed the download with the extension.

I run firefox from the command line in a terminal, and recently I have been seeing this set of messages in the term when I load various webpages:

Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index2/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index3/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/present Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu Sandbox: unexpected multiple open of file /proc/cpuinfo

Mostly, there doesn't seem to be any loss of function related to this message. However, I have one anecdotal example of a forum website I have used in the past freezing on a blank screen at the same time these messages pop up in the term.

I can find no match for this particular message on the entire open internet. There is one near-match on bugzilla bug # Bug 1718493, but that is solved and done.

Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!

Hi folks, I fired up my laptop tonight and then opened my Firefox browser, only to find that the bookmark toolbar was missing. 'Ah, simple answer,' I thought, 'I must have turned it off. Just move the pointer to the top and right click. The bookmark tab option will be there.'

But no, it isn't. Sure, there's the Bookmark name with a right-pointing arrow. And if I follow that I can see that it says "Bookmark Toolbar > Always show." And although that option has a tick against it, no bookmarks are visible.

So what's happened to them? If I click on the Bookmarks name right at the top and then click 'Manage Bookmarks' I can see them all, so they haven't been deleted, erased or anything - but why can't I see them? By the way, if I click "Never Show" then the space where they should be disappears and if I then click "Always Show" then the space returns but without any bookmarks.

Help please - bookmarks are essential for browsing.

(Firefox 102 on Windows.)

Indicating the progress of a runnig download in the taskbar is ok, but when the size of the download is unknown, there is a fast animation, that keeps going and going and going. That´s very annoying, when you want to keep focused on a difficult issue elsewhere on the screen. (Sadly I have these 'endless' and slow downloads quite often at work - e.g. github.)

How can this animation be disabled?

I would happily lose the normal download progress if only this fast animation disappears.

In about:config I did not find anything applicable when searching for 'download', 'animate', 'progress' or 'taskbar'.

After a Windows11 update re-boot, I had to sign-in on many things - Firefox was one of them. When I tried, I entered my name and password with no errors. But, then I was asked to verify that I was me by signing on to my YouTube app on my tablet.

Why?

I have no intention of keeping this "malware" but did download it to get access to Firefox.

Please change the secondary verification for something else.

Hey there,

I use Adobe Acrobat Pro to open PDFs for work. It always worked fine, set up to automatically open PDFs in Adobe, and they save to Downloads folder. For some reason now, after an update, the PDF always pulls up a save box and asks me to name the file (significantly slows down workflow). This only happened after an update.

I've figured out that the issue is related to a way that the PDFs are generated. So if I click it via a link that ends in .html instead of .pdf, it assumes it's a webpage and opens the pdf link in browser, and from there I have to click save, and then I'm prompted to type in the file name.

If I open a PDF link that's an actual .pdf file URL, then it saves to Downloads automatically and names the file "contractfile-1111" or whatever, numbered consecutively. Any ideas on how to get around this?

Thanks

I had to get a new laptop last week and Zendesk is behaving irratically in the latest version of the Firefox browser. It worked fine in Firefox on my old laptop. After logging into Zendesk it does a flickering loop and the page never loads. Any ideas would be appreciated.

I have been working with Zendesk support and they had me create a HAR file to see what was hapening. I also have cleared the cach & cookis as well as removed extensions. And all cookies are enabled. Zendesk is working fine in Chrome but I'd rather have it in the FF browser where most of my cloud-based work applications are.

My laptop is a HP 445 G8 Notebook running Windows 10 Pro 19044.1806

Hi, I use Verizon Fios and a Windows 10 PC. Firefox is my default browser. I don't experience any of the problems described below when using Chrome, which I only do now that Firefox is not working optimally.

In many, many years I've never had trouble with Firefox until about a month ago. When I opened the browser, I received messages -- about five times -- that it had crashed. After that, many websites now load very slowly, or not at all. And now, I'm unable to see product images on Amazon.

Would you please help me? I'm 84 and not all that computer savvy and I don't want to delete my browsing history, etc. Many thanks, Valerie

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.

But, when I joined the meeting, I found that I could hear and be heard but I couldn't be seen; my video icon refused to react when I tried to get it open. It was only when I came in through Edge that I could be both heard and seen. Is there any way I can get into a Teams meeting through Firefox? (I have downloaded Teams on to my desk top.) Steve
