Hi, everyone!

I found a similar solution but only for "Open link in new tab": you can go to about:config and change the preference named browser.tabs.loadBookmarksInBackground. But I want the same thing for my saved bookmarks on Bookmarks Toolbar. Sometimes I need to open a few bookmarks from one folder and then I used for it middle-click or click on Open in new tab, but it switches to tab immediately and I should repeat a process again: click on a folder, find a bookmark, click on it, new tab opened and so on. So is there an option to open bookmarks in background tabs? How can I achieve that?

I use firefox 83.0 on Ubuntu 20.04. Browser does not play videos on Twitter, Reddit or Netflix. Youtube plays some videos but some videos show error "your browser does not currently recognize any of the video formats available". I cannot find any viable solution. what should I do?

I installed chrome and it plays all the videos. So there must not be any problem in OS.

I have a piece of code which has worked fine since I wrote it almost 20 years ago and which has only been fine tuned as the standards for JavaScript have been refined over those two decades. The functionality is to act when the user stops typing into a textbox for 0.9 seconds, which by trial and error I found was fast enough to act without premature invocation because the user was just typing slowly.

```javascript // in the initialization code element.addEventListener('keydown', onKeyDownName); ... function onKeyDownName(event) {

   if (timer)
       clearTimeout(timer);
   timer   = setTimeout(update, 900);
   alert("nominalIndex.js: onKeyDownName: timer=" + timer)

} // function onKeyDownName

function update() {

   alert("nominalIndex.js: update:");
   // perform the function

} ```

The alerts are only inserted, on my private test site only, to try and debug why this code is no longer working. Each time I type a character I see the alert "nominalIndex.js: onKeyDownName: timer=nnn" but no matter how long I wait I never see the alert "nominalIndex.js: update:". To get the function to work the user must take some other action which causes the function update to be called. There are no messages in the log to explain why the timer isn't popping. How can I debug this?

The code works on Chromium 87.0.4280.88 but doesn't work on FireFox 83.0 build id 20201112153044. I am running Ubuntu Linux 20.04

See this code in action at www.jamescobban.net/FamilyTree/nominalIndex.php?name=Culbert%2C%20Su&treename=&lang=en

Hi everyone :)

I didn't find anything about it: I'm looking for a shortcut to open links in the private window without opening the context menu (right click)

I know that.....:

  • CTRL + Click open in a new Tab (Or middle click)
  • CTRL + SHIFT + Click open in a new Tab and focus on this new tab (or SHIFT + middle click)
  • SHIFT + Click open the link in a new Window

But actually I didn't find any combination to open it in a new private window. Even the context menu "Open Link in a new private window" isn't what I'm looking for as I don't want the new window to be on top.

Is there a way to do it, maybe an extension ?

Thanks for reading, Alex.

Firefox desktop on Ubuntu and Windows says "server not found" trying to connect to cdc.gov!

Running Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04, Windows 10, and Android 11. versions 83.0, 83.0, and 83.1.0 respectively.

As of 12/10/2020 discovered that on Ubuntu 20.04 Firefox would not get to cdc.gov and gave message "server not found".

On 12/11/2020 I started digging a bit deeper.

  • Firefox on the Ubuntu and Windows hosts, both on home WiFi (Optimum, public IP 24.47.128.216) does not get to cdc.gov with message "server not found".
  • Firefox on Android 11 (WiFi connected and LTE at 3 bars) does connect to cdc.gov. Don't know how to tell if connection via WiFi or LTE.
  • Firefox on Ubuntu and Windows hosts using USB tethering to phone for Internet does not connect to cdc.gov.
  • Chrome 87.0.4280.88 and Chromium 87.0.4280.88 on Ubuntu and Windows hosts on home WiFi connect to cdc.gov
  • Edge 87.0.664.60 on Windows host on home WiFi connects to cdc.gov

Seems Firefox desktop for Ubuntu and Windows is having some kind of problem with cdc.gov. Have tried running in Safe Mode and selecting Restart with add ons disabled and Refresh Firefox. Neither option has resolved problem.

What's wrong?

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

I recently installed the Firefox Multi Account Containers extension. I am wondering if tabs opened in "No Container" are in their own container. If I open youtube.com in a container called Google, it cannot read cookies from the Shopping container, or any other container, but can it read the cookies in "No Container"? I would like to use the "No Container" as my default container, but if information can be shared between "No Container" and other containers, then I'll have to recreate the Personal Container, and never use the "No Container" option.

A long time ago when I was setting up my RasPi collection there was a Firefox version I saw called FireFox_ESR

I've since learnt that this is Extended Supported Release. (LTS in ubuntu parlance.)

Do such things still happen?

Thanks in advance.

(And all the best to all. Let's hope things get better very soon for everyone with this social isolation stuff.)

So I'm loving containers. They're great. However, I wish for some of my add-ons to only be on some containers. For example, I don't mind the Honey or Amazon Shopping add-on in my Shopping Container. But I would prefer them not to be in my banking container. In reality I'd like my banking container to have almost no add-ons.

Is there a way to set add-on to container affinity?

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

When opening a new tab FF is opening Duck Duck Go after DDG has been removed. I have deleted and reinstalled FF several times, I have cleaned the cache.

I have set the homepage to https://startpage.com (SP,) I have removed the extension Duck Duck Go (DDG.) When starting FF it opens SP, but when I click on the new tab (+) it opens DDG. The trouble-shooting information below says that DDG is Enabled, but I have removed it and the extension is not listed in the Add-Ons manager.

I have set FF > Preferences > Home > ...New Windows and Tabs > Homepage and New Windows > Custom URLs... > https://startpage.com/ ...New Tabs > Firefox Home (Default)

Why is FF reverting to DDG? Where is DDG coming from? Can I stop/disable DDG from appearing?
