When Firefox is running and I lock the screen and unlock it again, the gui seems to be somehow broken. On the picture attached one can see a graphical issue (black frame) on the right side of the browser when resizing the window. When I try to make it smaller starting from the left, the window disappears inside the black frame on the right side. There are also issues regarding the mouse. It is not possible to see which part of the text is already selected when pressing and holding the left mouse button during text selection (no orange highlighting of the text). When I release the left button the text is selected.

This is the second PC with Ubuntu 22.04 where this happens. Both PCs were upgraded from Ubuntu 20.04, so maybe it has to do something with that.

I have a laptop with Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox 307 from deb package works perfect. I wanted to give a try to Flatpak variant 306, which works well too, except two finger gestures back and front won't work. Scroll works. Any scheduled fix for that? Would be cool to move to flatpack completely.

When I want to drag and drop a tab into a folder of the bookmark toolbars, I can't do it for some folders.

Specifically, it doesn't work for folders that are somewhat in the area of the tab preview animation that pops up when I start dragging the tab. So that is not the same folders every time, it depends on the tab location in the tab bar.

I hope that the explanation was clear enough, I did a screen record also, made it available here https://ufile.io/pikit6xo (335 kB).

Do someone had a similar issue and found a solution?

I'm in troubleshooting mode. Firefox 100, just updated, but bug was there before. Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Since v 106 (so that and 107), firefox crashes when I choose screenshare and select a single window.

Technical details:

I'm using

- https://meet.jit.si/ - Firefox 106/107 developer edition from .AppImage file - Ubuntu 22.04 + Gnome + Wayland - MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=1 - pipewire (I believe) for screensharing via OS.

I'd love to get back to using Firefox, as I'm forced over to Chromium at the mo!

We have an Ubuntu computer that opens Firefox in Kiosk mode automatically when the computer boots.

This computer is connected to a TV and is used as an informational dashboard. No user interaction is required, so no keyboard or mouse is connected.

Every so often, Firefox updates (among other updates) and the computer reboots overnight. When booting after a Firefox update, it shows a "thank you for loving firefox" message instead of the specified URL. The easiest fix is to hold the power button and manually reboot when this happens since there is no keyboard and it's quicker than logging in via SSH.

Is there a way to prevent this message from showing after updating? We want to keep the automatic updater enabled to keep it up to date, but this is not desirable behavior.

I'm using Ubuntu Mate 22.04, Firefox 106.0.1 SNAP install. I setted to TRUE the option browser.download.start_downloads_in_tmp_dir , when I open a document from a web page like .docx or .xlsx I can see the window that ask me how to manage the file, if I choice to open it (not download), Firefox present the option "Open with System Handler (default)" but nothing happens. Please remember that if I download the file and double click it, Libreoffice is called and opens the file. If I select "Choose other" Firefox opens an empty list of apps. In settings I can't change the option "System default". How can I fix this?

I see an archived question that's similar but no real answer was provided.

I'm running Ubuntu 22 and I've checked to see if there's a way to only mute Firefox but so far I have not found anything. Chrome works fine. Videos and audio clips play fine. My Audacity and other editing tools work fine. Only Firefox refuses to play any audio.

Youtube live streams work fine on windows, but they don't work at all under Linux. Firefox is up to date on both my operating systems that I dual-boot. Getting an NS_BINDING_ABORTED error in the network console. I deleted my profile to be sure it wasn't due to any extensions or settings I've changed, and the problem remains. The Linux itself is also a fresh installation, and I had to download a tgz version and remove the snap to get the latest, because Ubuntu was stuck at 99.

Hello :)

Firefox 102.0.1 crashes after some Time. Firefox then is unable to switch between Tabs and stuck at the opened Website.

For testing Purpose i start over with a new profile and did not install any Add-ons. The behavior was the same, it crashes after some hours.

My System is Ubuntu Mate (Ubuntu with Mate Desktop) in Version 20.04.

Here has someone the same problem: -> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=277649

I have recently updated to Xubuntu 22 and in the process my firefox was migrated to the snap version. Now firefox is using its own mouse pointer style (smaller pointer, "hand with cuff pointing left" instead of "hand pointing up" over links). I can edit the system style of my mouse pointer, but that does not change the mouse pointer while in Firefox. This seems the same problem like these two questions: - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1380997 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1369875

How do I make Firefox use the system settings for the mouse pointer? Or at least how do I change the mouse pointer style/settings for Firefox snap at all?

For reference my Firefox Version is 104.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu. My desktop environment is xfce 4.16.

Thanks, Peter

I am using Mozilla Firefox, ver. 102.0.1, 46 bit, snap for Ubuntu 22.04. I have two issues with saving files in Mozilla.

First, when I try to save a pdf using the CTRL+S key, it open multiple (~100) instances of save dialogue box. Initially I thought my computer got freezed, since pressing the save key didn't had any effect. I tried to move it using the CTRL+SPACE key -> Move option, and then I realized there are many such save dialogue box are open. How to rectify its behavior?

Second, it downloads the file only in system created folder (e.g. ~\Download, ~\Document, ~\Pictures, etc) and not other user created folders (e.g ~\Dropbox, etc.). The dialogue box for saving file closes without giving any warning/error message. When I check the file it is not downloaded (in user created folders). Can there be any permission issue?

I have already reinstalled the Mozilla once!

Brand new installation of Ubuntu Focal (on an ARM Chromebook, using Crouton). Installed Firefox (104), runs fine but as soon as I sign into my Firefox account it immediately crashes. Continues to crash if I start in safe-mode, so I don't think the problem is an extension. After some online research and some trial and error I seem to have determined that I can sign into my Firefox account as long as password sync is disabled. But as soon as I enable password sync, Firefox immediately crashes.

Error message in terminal is always about GPU, which maybe isn't properly set up or maybe Firefox has a problem with it, but if I use the software renderer it doesn't cause a problem (MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=0 firefox). Hard to imagine that this has anything to do with crashing when syncing passwords?
