Linux Mageia7 Firefox quantum 68.4.2esr 64bit updated 2 days ago and now blocks DuckDuckGo searches. The page flashes on and disappears. Changing settings does nothing, Bing works as in shows but isn't a good enough search engine to be useful. If Mozilla no longer wants Linux users they should be open about it instead of wasting time. There isn't even any help in the help section/results have nothing to do with the question.

Right click your UI and go to Customize... try to add spacing between some of the icons/ui elements, and you should see there is only flexible space, and it is huge. There used to be little "|" separators you could add, as well as " " small spaces. Now there is just this ungodly huge flexible space. I am remembering from really old versions of firefox, I don't see why they removed it.

I want to pad the left side of my interface a little bit. I use a vertically aligned taskbar on the left side, so moving my mouse near the edge to hit BACK the taskbar will pop up and cover everything.

Is there an addon to bring it back, or is modifying chrome.css the only option. Thanks.

Hello,

Recently I noticed a big difference in performance on Youtube if I set Hardware Acceleration to disabled. I'm having Intel IGP, and no external graphics. I was reading more about this setting after I feel like 'youtube is so slow, but what if I turn this off, will this make any difference?' and yes it did! So it was a good idea, and I would like to share this. On devices with integrated graphics only - this setting should be disabled by default for new firefox installations. I really noticed a significant difference on my notebook when turning this off, but on my game-desktop with GPU GeForce 1050ti i don't notice difference because the GPU is good enough.

Kind Regards, Lajos

When I create a new profile and paste my backed up profile files inside the new profile folder everything seems to work except my add-ons. My add-ons would sometimes be invisible in the toolbar and replaced with empty slots which give me an error saying "Access to file denied - May have been removed, moved, or file permissions may be preventing access" if I try clicking on them. Other times they would be completely gone, not in the toolbar or customization menu. In either case, when I go check what add-ons I have installed, it shows that they're all still there, I just can't seem to see or use them. I'd end up having to uninstall and then reinstall each add-on. (sorry I couldn't get a screenshot of the error, it disappears when I try)

Interestingly the add-ons remember their set place, some remember their previous settings, others don't. For example, NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere remember their settings, but uBlock Origin and Bitwarden don't.

I'm looking for a serious, business version of Firefox. No "throbbers" No animations. No cartoon characters displaying errors when a page doesn't load. You know, something for adults and not five year olds?

At one time, some of these things could be disabled by the user. Now we can't even do that.

This issue started recently where if I click websites like Twitter, Yahoo, Imgur or sometimes embedded Youtube videos, I'll get the tab crashed page on Firefox. My add-ons are updated, I tried safe mode, I did the Firefox refresh, I disabled hardware acceleration, compatibility mode is not checked, and also cleared cookies, but none of them worked. The websites work and don't crash when I use a different browser.

I'm not sure what info you need, but this is for an older computer with Windows 7, I'm using Firefox 68.4.2esr (says it's the latest version) and the crash reason is EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION_WRITE

Thanks for any help!

Edit: The issue fixed itself when I restarted the computer.

The following code work in Firefox v54, but stopped working on Firefox v68.4.1 (possibly earlier version as well).

index.html: <body>

<object type="image/svg+xml" data="test.svg", id="test_svg_id">

   Your browser doesn't support SVG
</object>

<script type="text/javascript" src="test.js"></script>

</body>

javascript: function init() {

 console.log("init()");

// Get the overall SVG defined in the Index HMTL page var svg_object = document.getElementById("test_svg_id");

// Get the SVG document inside the Object tag var svg_document = svg_object.contentDocument; }

Any idea why contentDocument is always null?

Ever since the last update to 72.0, websites that change their content according to the browser's language act as if my language is Heberw although I've set all possible settings to English in about:preferences and about:config. Image attached.

I remember that right after the update, there was a message that never came back saying I can choose between Hebrew and English as the language that I'll present as my language to websites. I'm pretty sure I chose English but ever since, it seems the browser is doing the opposite. The most notable damage is that Google searches show up in English.

I've tested **Google searching in safe mode and it works fine**. I've also tested a clean and new profile and I couldn't get Google show up the content in English.

I know that for example Google, allows you to change the language you prefer to use their website. The problem is, that I don't store Google's cookies for the sake of privacy (I have an extension that automatically cleans cookies based on domain) and this setting is stored within a cookie.

In the meantime I've installed the Search extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/search-google-us/

Trying to determine what change between 72.02 and 73 has caused an issue with Cisco Finesse frames. After the upgrade forms that previously loaded sit at loading. I've opened a ticket with Cisco as well, curious if others have run into the issue and found any solutions. At the moment I've downgraded the affected users to 68.5esr but ideally would like to keep them on the latest versions for security reasons.

As it is, it seems I have to look up the name of the addon all over again on the mozilla site. I haven't found the easy "click here" thing.

I have consciously transitioned from Chrome to FF for Privacy reasons, but find myself with a problem now. When i close the browser i have set it to delete all the cookies. I want however to make exceptions for certain sites like i did with Chrome so that when i go back to LinkedIn or YouTube i don't have to go through the 2-step login process which is quite annoying if you have to do that multiple times per day as you can imagine. not having been able to find a definite answer on how to do that (yes, i did read multiple support articles) i turn to you to for help Is there a whitelist option to handle exceptions per domain for deleting cookies?

Somehow related to this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1273708 and this question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1268361

I'm using Firefox Sync for longer to sync bookmarks and logins between Firefoxes on my private Linux box and Firefox on a private Android Smartphone.

As I wanted to have my logins (esp. their usually nowadays pretty complex passwords :-)) also available on my company's laptop's Firefox, but ONLY the logins, NOT the (many) bookmarks, don't want to mix business bookmarks with private ones, I've enbled Firefox Sync for the first time on the company#s laptop.

Unfortunately Firefox Sync took ALL information possible, bookmarks, logins and even history, and synced it to my Android also. Bidirectional! Some work to wipe this. There has been no option in the phase of connecting my company's laptop to Firefox sync to select the sync scope itself, unfortunately.

- Is this "working as designed"? Or did I miss something?

Before wiping both my company's laptop and my Android, I've set the sync options to "Logins only" on the company's laptop. To be sure NOT to get any wiped bookmarks deleted at their origins/source Firefoxes.

Having done this. my Android Sync settings have been also set (automatically?) to "Logins only", no Bookmarks sync anymore.

- I this correct? Only one sync options set valid for ALL devices "belonging" to a Firefox Sync account? Docs are somewhat vague about this, at least what I've found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-choose-what-types-information-sync-firefox#w_manage-sync-information-on-a-computer

I'm not 100% sure about "automatically set", but because of the work to get things sorted out after the unwanted sync I do not want to test again :-S
