I used Malwarebyte scan to check for my digital footprint and it showed Firefox , spotify and another program , it also identified one password that was out there ! Does this mean that Firefox on my PC/Phone is insecure ? or are they trying to get me to use their software ?

Randomly after certain updates, the browser history gets randomly erased. The cookies are not deleted, so my sign in information is retained across my usual website (no issue here).

I wanted to report this as it happened twice around the past two weeks and it was inconvenient.

Dear Firefox Support Team,

I am experiencing an issue with Firefox where it unexpectedly closes without any warning or generating a crash dialogue. This issue occurs when switching between any tabs, not exclusively ones with active media content such as YouTube, as previously suspected. This problem has persisted across multiple instances, without a discernible pattern or specific tab content causing the issue.

    • Firefox Version:** 124.0.2
    • Operating System:** Ubuntu 23.10, Linux 6.5.0-27-generic
    • Extensions/Themes:** [Provide a list of enabled extensions, or note if the issue persists in Safe Mode]
    • Recent Changes:** [Mention any recent system or Firefox updates]
    • Graphics Card:** NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 Ti, Driver Version 535.161.07
    • Steps to Reproduce:**

1. Open Firefox with multiple tabs. 2. Switch between various tabs. 3. Observe that Firefox occasionally closes unexpectedly without any crash report dialogue.

    • Attempted Solutions:**

- Checked `about:crashes` with no submitted crash reports found. - Monitored for errors using the Browser Console but found nothing consistently leading to the issue. - Attempted running Firefox in Safe Mode to rule out extension-related issues. - Disabled hardware acceleration to see if it impacts the occurrence, with no change.

    • Relevant Logs and IDs:**

- **Crash IDs:** N/A as no crash reports have been generated. - **Console Errors:** No specific errors noted that correlate directly with the issue. - **about:support Data(sanitised):**Name: Firefox Version: 124.0.2 Build ID: 20240401114208 Distribution ID: mozilla-deb Update Channel: release User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:124.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/124.0 OS: Linux 6.5.0-27-generic OS Theme: Generic Application Binary: /usr/lib/firefox/firefox-bin Profile Directory: [Generic Profile Directory] Build Configuration: about:buildconfig Memory Use: about:memory Performance: about:processes Registered Service Workers: about:serviceworkers Multiprocess Windows: 1/1 Fission Windows: 1/1 Enabled by default Remote Processes: 14 Enterprise Policies: Inactive Google Location Service Key: Found Google Safebrowsing Key: Found Mozilla Location Service Key: Found Safe Mode: false Memory Size (RAM): 15.4 GB Disk Space Available: 1,468 GB Profiles: about:profiles

This problem significantly disrupts my browsing experience, and I have not found a consistent workaround. Any insights or assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and help,

PDFs are shown as empty pages after suspend/resume on linux

Hello, I'm using a document management system (SeedDMS for those who know) through Firefox 122.0.1 (64-bit, canonical 1.0, downloaded from packages.ubuntu.com for focal, running on Debian Bookworm, kernel 6.1.0-17-amd64/Debian 6.1.69-1 x86_64, X.Org X Server 1.21.1.7, KDE Plasma 5.27.5, KDE Framework 5.103.0, QT 5.15.8, i7-5820K, GeForce GTX 1070).

Within this document management system pdf.js (v4.0.379) is being used to preview/view PDF Documents. After starting Firefox the PDF view inside the DMS works fine until I suspend (to memory) and resume my machine. Regular HTML-content looks fine but the resumed DMS session shows only blank (all white) Pages inside the PDF view. Changing to a different PDF file doesn't help. The number and size of these pages is presented correctly. I can even select and copy (invisible) text from these blank PDF pages. The problem applies to all PDFs, whether they're single or multi paged, have images inside them (like with PDFs from a scanner) or not, etc. Reloading the page/closing reopening the affected browser window doesn't help, i.e. the problem persists.

I recently found out, that this also applies to PDF files directly opened inside Firefox (which also seems to use pdf.js as a PDF viewer), that is, this is not related to a specific site like my DMS.

The problem always persists until I kill Firefox and start it over.

Pdf.js seems to use a canvas inside a div (see screenshots attached) to draw the visual PDF content and another div to make the text layer selectable/searchable etc. I don't know what's happening to canvases on a system suspend/resume cycle in Firefox on Linux, but I suspect that's where the problem originates from.

This problem already affected older versions of Firefox and pdf.js.

Please let me know, if you need further information from my side to investigate that issue.

Thanks a lot!
