I'm running the most recent Firefox in both the 18.04 and 20.04 releases of Ubuntu. I cannot log into either Gmail, or Slack. I believe this is a version problem because on an older, CentOS 7 operating system and Firefox, this is not a problem. I have tried removing history, to no avail.

I am new to Firefox as well as Linux and my laptop is running two hard drives, each dedicated to its own operating system, Windows and Linux. I created a Firefox account in Windows and was able to export all bookmarks from Chrome to the new account. The Linux version I'm using is Manjaro KDE and Firefox comes pre-loaded and so I logged in with my new account and chose import bookmarks from HTML, having exported from Windows Firefox bookmarks via HTML. I see no file on the receiving end? Any ideas? Thank You, Ron

Halifax use a card verification process "Halifax Secure" to verify payments made with one of their cards. Using Firefox on Linux, the pop-up window opened by to perform the verification dialogue hangs when invoked from some, but not all web sites. Turning off tracking protection for the invoking site does not solve the problem, but perhaps its redirecting to another site in the popup?

Any workaround, or means of pinning down the actual cause would be appreciated. For now I'm having to switch to Chromium every time I hit this problem.

Thanks.

I'm experiencing relatively frequent crashes of Firefox under Ubuntu Focal (approximately daily). The rather frustrating aspect is that, after the crash, Firefox immediately crashes when attempting to restart (either from the crash reporter dialog, or separately after quitting and attempting to launch it again). Re-launching in safe-mode also crashes immediately. However, after rebooting the machine, Firefox is absolutely fine once more (until the next time) which suggests to me there's "some state" left lying around somewhere preventing the restart (and perhaps related to the crash itself).

Here's the IDs of a couple of the safe-mode crashes, from attempted restarts (I figure those are most useful in cutting out the potential cruft; for reference, the non-safe-mode crashes appear to be at the exact same location):

bp-1c86b7c1-de6f-4153-b120-3ac320200814 bp-14a13b2b-6c6d-4d67-982d-132da0200814

Nothing comes up in the Correlations section of the report, and a search of the signature doesn't seem to turn up much relevant. Frankly, if I could just figure out how to get the browser restarted without rebooting the whole machine, that'd be a big step forward for me :)

Many thanks for any attention people can give this,

Dave.

Hello,

I got the following problem. When I shutdown my PC and let's say have 20+ Tabs open from a study session, after booting again all these tabs are opened when I stat firefox.

In many cases this may be the intended behavior, but I really do not like it. I would like that my Firefox behaves in the following manor:

At any given time, when I open my browser for the first time my default setting is shown. 

At any given time, when I open my browser, no older tabs from a session before should be opened

Thank for help in advance I am aware that this might be the stupidest question ever and I have to jump through hoops to make it happen.

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

Using Firefox 79.0 (64-it) and fedora 32 OS I've noticed there is not an option to minimize the browser window anymore. I use to be able to right-click on the menu-bar and one of the options would be to minimize the Firefox window. Only options now are radio buttons for Menu Bar and Bookmarks Toolbar. Is this a bug are intentional can this functionality be restored? Regards.

I've got multiple clients set up to sync via FF sync. Some are older, some are newer.

However, looking at the newest client (set up ~2 weeks ago), I noticed something: It only shows a browser history up to approx. one year in the past. I've checked other clients. My oldes client goes back to ~2016, which is 4 years form now. I know my oldes client is older than 2016, so there has to be more.

Does FF Sync skip older entries? IMHO I'd have to see the exact same history on my older client than on my newer client. That is not the case. Any ideas?
