This is a problem connected with SCROLLING. There are three standard ways of scrolling , while surfing and looking through site pages: 1. Use the Mouse roller 2. Use the left click press on the mouse, simultaneously press and move the scroll bar 3. There are two Scroll bar junctions - one at top and other at base. The mouse left click button may be clicked - either in steps or on a continued click... to make the page move ... in steps or on a continuous movement.

The QUESTION here is: While we have this Last No.3 above facility in UBUNTU-Mate, such facility is not seen in UBUNTU, XUBUNTU, LUBUNTU, KUBUNTU etc. WHY?

Can we not have the same facility in the other OS too?

I just discovered that all my backups of webpages are missing lots of their images because I saved them without scrolling down the page. Images are only downloaded as necessary when they become visible in the viewport. Is there a way of configuring Firefox to load the complete page when visited?

Since updating to Mac OS Catalina, Firefox is displaying some text/fonts on websites as boxed question marks. I have tried some of the suggested fixes including: 1. lowering the security.sandbox.content.level to a value of 2, 1, or even 0, but no success. 2. Type about:preferences#content<enter> in the address bar. Across from fonts and colors, press the Advanced button. On the bottom, turn on Allow Web Sites To Choose Their Own. When checked - The boxed question marks appear. 3. The problem is only happening in Firefox. No problem in Safari. (see image)

MacbookPro OS 10.11.6

  1. About a week ago Firefox was running no problem.
  2. Closed Firefox (quit)
  3. Re-opened and got the Profile missing error.
  4. troubleshoot through existing threads on mozilla support. including renaming the profile.ini file, deleting it, moving it, etc.
  5. Used Appcleaner to wipe all known goodies of Firefox from my computer
  6. downloaded a fresh 76.0.dmg from the website
  7. Problem persists. Application does not load, "Profile missing" opens immediately
  8. No application support data in /Library/ application support/firefox exists

Chrome works and Safari works no problem.

I am using Opensuse 15.0 and also 15.1. Haven't made a complete move over yet. There is a recurring situation when 4GB rx and 4GB tx movement that I cannot account for hits my 15.0 about once a month. Today it happened again. Using vnstat, I found it happened between 10.00 - 11.00. :

Searched the cookies, one site i cannot recognize came out; "consensu.org". Did a search, there were several, example: https://cmp.teads.mgr.consensu.org/index.html, that served blank pages in firefox. Is there anything odd here? Is there a way I can extract all the cookies with date & time so that I can check against previous occurrences of the 4GB data movements (I have a few records).

Now the browser version Firefox Quantum Extended Support Release 68.4.1esr (32-bit) for Alt Linux is installed on my computer. Upon request by the POST method in the specified browser from the Apache server on the same computer loads a static web page with the following META tag in its header: <META HTTP-EQUIV="Set-Cookie" CONTENT="name=password; PATH=/"> After that, cookies must be created in the browser. Really they are created - in other browsers (Chrome and Opera), but for some reason they ceased to be created in the Firefox browser. What is the reason for this and is it possible to resume and track their creation in Firefox? I would be grateful for any answer on this question.

trying to sign into BT email using Firefix fails with invalid username or password. If I use Edge then I can log into the email OK. This worked yesterday OK. If I use Edge, then I can get into BT email OK, so the password isn't wrong, and a BT support person said that they've had a lot of people recently failing to get into email if they use Firefox, but other browsers are OK.

I can't see this issue reported elsewhere, other than several years ago.

Unlike some people who don't want to see the extension name in the address bar, I want to see the *entire* extension name. Threat model: one of my extensions gets a rogue update and puts up a screen that looks just like a screen (e.g., the login page) of another extension (e.g., my password manager).

When the extension name is too long, Firefox currently displays: Extension... <last word of extension name>

To be secure I currently need to click on the above so that it expands, in order to verify it's the correct extension.

Can this be done in CSS, or would a feature change be needed to Firefox?
