Apparently when Firefox updated to version 78.15.0 on my Devuan Chimaera operating system, I began to experience video corruption. Whenever the cursor is moved, thin horizontal lines break up the text or image for one second. Another symptom is that when the cursor is moved onto or away from the scroll bar at right, it displays horizontal lies of shades of grey. Other video intensive applications (LibreOffice Word) and browsers (tor browser, Chrome) don't have the problem. Hardware is Gibabyte Z590 Aorus Elite (no video card). I reinstalled without customization, cache, addons and the problem persists.

Hi

First of all sorry if my English is not correct. I have a problem trying to login to an old firefox account, though I remember the password I cannot change or add a new email because the primary email from the old account is from a email service that no longer exist (openmailbox.org), so I cannot receive the security code. Although I have a new firefox account with other mail that I use regularly, I need to access to my old account to recover an old login. Is there something that can be done or I lost my old data forever?

I use two different emails frequently for when on my Firefox browser: @consultant and @rocketmail.com. Yet Firefox only remembers/autofills one, the latter of the two. The PC used is my own and is secured from anyone else logging on in the house (wife and son have their own laptops). It's a bit annoying when I turn on my Linux Mint OS PC to check both my email accounts, (and yeah when logging into each email account, I did specify or select the option "Remember me on this device"), yet I always have to sign in to the "@rocketmail.com" account. Please help! What am I missing or possibly overlooking? Since I am fallible, I therefore may have been doing something wrong, incorrect, or overlooking it. It's possible. Thank you very much for your assistance, and effort.

I am running Firefox version 95.0.1 (from apt) on Ubuntu 21.10. I took the following steps to enable hardware acceleration for Firefox:

gfx.webrender.all -> true layers.acceleration.force-enabled -> true media.ffmpeg.vaapi.enabled -> true media.ffvpx.enabled -> false media.navigator.mediadatadecoder_vpx_enabled -> true media.rdd-ffmpeg.enabled ->true media.rdd-vpx.enabled -> false

After changing all of these options in about:config I am still getting no hardware acceleration even on h264 encoded videos. My card should support VP9 as well. I tried hw accelerating video in VLC and it worked so it is likely a Firefox issue.

My driver version is the Mesa Gallium driver ver. 21.2.2.2. As a window manager I am using Wayland.

HW: AMD 5500U with integrated graphics and a dedicated Radeon 640 (laptop model is Acer Aspire 5 A515-45G-R5MD)

Recently migrated to a new version(it's a fork called Waterfox but it shouldn't matter) and I cannot find the right option. I don't want to remove the search capability, mind you, just the appearance. All of the address suggestions are turned off, also tried some about:config options but none did the trick. In the illustration attached, the newer browser with the problem is on the left and the older with desired appearance is on the right.

I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu, Linux. Recently, when launching a webapp of mine on localhost (port 4200 for the record, but I don't think that's relevant to the issue), and opening it in Firefox, the browser asks me in what application I want to open the localhost link. I just want to open it as a webpage, but I am forced to type "http://localhost:<port>" rather than just "localhost:<port>". It's not a major problem, but it is inconvenient to have to type "http://" everytime I want to open a local webapp in a browser window. I've looked around in Settings, and I found that "localhost" is listed as a content type under "Applications", but I'm not able to tell Firefox to not open the content in an external app. Is there a way to resolve this?

How do I disable or add an exception for unqualified hostnames on my local LAN? e.g., LOCALHOST or HOST in HOST.EXAMPLE.COM where EXAMPLE.COM is automatically appended? What about disabling HTTPS for a subnet, such as 198.51.100.0/24 ?

I tried adding HTTP://*.example.com and it bizarrely added two entries: HTTP://HTTP HTTP://HTTP

I tried multiple times to sign up using my email address that uses the domain @sleepy.fish. I was slightly tipped off when firefox attempted to ask if I had made a mistake entering my email... i tried multiple ways to get the verification emails send both via web client and ios app and it simply would not send. To sanity check I created a new account using an old @gmail.com address and immediately got the verification email.

I'm kinda migrating off of mega corp google products though, hence the signing up for firefox sync haha. Would be great if I could figure out how to ensure delivery of the verification email so I can complete account setup with my custom domain email

When copying data from a site which contains a long list (= one requiring scrolling down), any list item which references a large jpg file causes the site to reset to its top when editing of that file is completed.

Firefox should have an option which holds a long-list file at the item most recently edited or copied. It is bothersome and unnecessary to keep scrolling down a long list every time a complex copy or edit is performed.

Example: https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Charaxes is a typical long list. See the figure for Charaxes boueti, for an example of a figure which, when copied as a jpg, causes the list to reset to its top.

If an edit option is not added, at least ALL edits of a long list should keep the edit location displayed. Currently, this holds only for editing of simple images, not complex, multi-item images requiring jpg formatting.

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?

Firefox version: 95.0.1 x64 on Linux Mint 19.1, running in safe-mode

As title says, the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder synced from a Firefox Android aren't saved when exporting the bookmarks to an HTML file. They ARE saved during 'Backup to a JSON' but HTML with 20,000 bookmarks is much easier to edit than a JSON (unless anyone has a handy and quick JSON editor recommendation?).

So bug, or notbug?

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work

Hello

Is there some documentation to explain what the font size options mean?

I apologize but I havent studied fonts, I just use the one I feel most comfortable with.

Generally, for me, the font size is too small. And the Adv. page is confusing.

How does the minimum font size relate to the proportional or monospace sizes?

The proportional has serif, sans-serif. The the next 2 opts are serif and sans-serif. Are they related? Because I can set serif to sans-serif and sans-serif to serif.

Att. my settings
