I recently installed some linux distributions on the raspberry pi 4 including firefox. In contrast to the same os/firefox combination running on my (10 years old) laptop pc, no widevine Content Decryption Module (CDM) addon seems to be available. This means starting of videos from respective sources after proper login does not take place. (I am sorry for the English)

When I try to update my firefox installation on ubuntu, if just downloads a .bz2 file, but there is no application to open it with. How do I open it ? Do I use the archiver in ubuntu ? Is there any particular script in the archive that I should run for update rather than for fresh install ?

Currently when I click inside the Location Bar the entire string is selected/highlighted.

I don't want that, I want the old behavior where the first click positions the pointer at the place inside the string text where I clicked.

I have added these options (found in another Q):

browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll false browser.urlbar.doubleClickSelectsAll true

But they don't seem to work.

I'm using Firefox 76.0.1 on Linux, and the option to combine Search and Location bar.

If I search by highlighting text and then right click + 'search google for...' the following link address in the next page always includes the text "client=ubuntu".

As i'm using ubuntu that might not seem strange, but it's strange to me because I use this addon which is supposed to spoof my browser and O/S and also in about config I have: privacy.resistFingerprinting and "privacy.trackingprotection.fingerprinting.enabled"' both set to "true".

Can anyone tell me how google is able to detect this info?

And seeing as the about:config settings dont seem to work... how i'm able to stop it?

Ever since I can remember I have never got the microphone to work correctly in Firefox 76.0 under GNU/Linux (x64_x86). After many years I now tried a site where I can record from my mic and I noticed that the sound is mostly heard at the beginning of words and static when I do not talk. It is if there is noise reduction or some kind of threshold ( inverted gate/expander) killing everything above a certain level.

In other apps it works without changing a single parameter in ALSA or Pulseaudio and letting them use the exact same settings as when trying it out in Firefox.

Viewing two tabs side-by-side can be very helpful, for example when copying information across. This used to work in older version using the AddOns tiled=tabs/pages. But in FF76 tiled-pages has very limited functionality and does not work for me for any page that requires javascript - so most pages requiring logins are out.

How can I get this very time-saving functionality back?

Broken profile, 'select topic' on this site not working etc

Hi, I've broken my profile which has led to several terrible effects. I suspect that this happened because I enabled Marionette in my default profile (and experimented little bit with it), although I also installed few extensions in the meantime all of them I've already deleted (Midnight Lizard and couple of auto refreshers). I don't know if I should list everything that got broken in one question, but let's begin with this one: I can't select topic for this question on my default profile (other profile is OK), because if I click no drop-down list appears. I don't see any errors in console.

the other problems are

  1. browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.topsites was set false (changed it back to true).
  2. I can't access about:preferences through Edit menu (nothing happens).
  3. FF starts with empty window and the window I used before is in the 'Recently closed windows' list, despite I closed it last. I don't know how to make Firefox restart with that window.
  4. When I attempted to open URL in Firefox from external application (for example by running 'firefox url' in console) Firefox's window used to pop up (go to the foreground before all other windows on the screen) with URL opened in a new tab. Now Firefox's window remains in background. I've changed nothing in my window manager's settings (Fluxbox is my WM) and I suggest it's also up to some changes in my profile... Also this happens with any active profile, all other issues listed only related to default profile.

I have installed new version of Firefox, but problems remained, so I believe they're up to broken profile data....

As long as Firefox has added the containers feature in the last updates, the actual behavior of the new tab button needs to be updated, or at least configurable. If you're in a specific container, new tab opens a no-container tab. I believe this should be the actual container of the active tab, instead of a no-container.

And neither is the Temporary Containers Addon. I just did fresh brand new initial Firefox install on both the most updated version of Windows 10 and the most recent version of Ubuntu 20.04. All addons appear in the toolbar except these 2. I've tried installing these 2 first. I've tried installing them last, then disabling all the other addons, uninstalling them and reinstalling them. Nothing will make them appear in the toolbar, yet they appear as enabled when they display under the addons > extensions. Also, hitting the extension shortcuts will not bring up the addon interaction screen for any of the addons, e.g. Ctrl U or Ctrl <period> or whatever the relevant shortcut command is. This appears to only be an issue with FRESH Firefox install, because on my other computer running Windows 10 I've had the Multiaccount Containers Addon in the toolbar for 6 months without issue through many older versions of Firefox; and after I updated (rather than fresh install) to this latest version the Multiaccount Containers Addon remains in the toolbar without issue.

Can anyone suggest how I can get theMultiaccount Containers Addon and Temporary Containers Addon to appear in the toolbar? And why are none of the extension shortcuts working - could I be executing them on the wrong screen? I've been trying them on the Addons > Extensions screen.

Good day,

Using Firefox for normal web browsing is not a problem. However, when playing video (YouTube, Twitch.tv etc) I get this Decoder error under Syslog.

firefox_firefox.desktop[36209]: [Child 36209, MediaDecoderStateMachine #3] WARNING: Decoder=7f73b74d4400 Decode error: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005) - RefPtr<MediaSourceTrackDemuxer::SamplesPromise> mozilla::MediaSourceTrackDemuxer::DoGetSamples(int32_t): manager is detached.: file /builds/worker/checkouts/gecko/dom/media/MediaDecoderStateMachine.cpp, line 3367

The crashes are random. I can play video for varying lengths of time. But the above Error keeps appearing. All packages are up to date.

Thanks.

this pc used to be a linux ubuntu one. was synced using firefox on the previous operating system. now I'm logged in using Mint. want to find out how I can get back all the windows with their tabs open on Mint?


I'm signed in and synced here so why am I constantly being asked to sign in again and again?

is there a way to chat/connect directly with Mozilla and/or Firefox support?

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?

Recently the web push notifications got a popup UI that is really disturbing. Show up on all desktops etc., it interrupts me in what I’m doing. I really very strongly dislike this change.

I would like to revert to how it was before (pre-76.0 ? Not sure exactly which version): - notifications get sent to my desktop/OS’s notification center (running OpenSuse + KDE), - no popup is displayed when a notification is triggered.

That way: - notifications will respect the OS « do not disturb » mode, - notifications get shown through a unified UI for all applications, - I can pick how « interrupting » I want each notification to be, - In particular I can focus while on my computer without being interrupted, and poll the notifications occasionally.

Is there a way (maybe a about:config option) to keep notifications but disable the popup behaviour?
