My tabs toolbar does not extend across the entire laptop screen. Looks like it stops halfway, regardless of how many tabs are open. As tab number increases individual tab space narrows. How can I increase width to occupy full screen?

I've been using Firefox ESR for some years. Now I would like to know the best way to use and try the "normal" version of Firefox. Can I install it without uninstall ESR? Or must I do a clean install of Firefox after getting rid of ESR? If this is the case, what must I do to keep my profile, bookmarks, etc?

Firefox is telling the world that it is version 91: confirmed by websites are telling me that my 91 installation is out of date, further confirmed from this page below showing

   Firefox version (optional): 
   91.0

Under Settings/Firefox Updates I see "Version 97.0.1 Firefox is up to date."

Anyone know what's going on?

I have done my best to suppress browser and OS fingerprinting. Is that the cause? I also note that under 'Troubleshooting information" below the page shows "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data"

On Linux if I start Firefox when there is no network connection, it is then unable to connect to the internet when it later becomes available (ethernet or wifi). The only solution is to close it and restart when the connection is available. If the connection was available when Firefox started, losing it and restoring it does not cause a problem. Thunderbird has the same problem, but no other program on they system does.

network.dns.disablePrefetch does not help.

This has applied to FIrefox for many years, including the current version 97.0

Hi everyone,

I am running Firefox 91.5 on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.5 and just noticed that all my addons have been disabled and can't re-enable them.

Some of them are quite common modules such as Disconnect or Privacy Badger, so wondering what this may be.

There is a similar post on this forum dating back to 2019 and it mentioned a fix on Firefox was to be developped.

Anyone experiencing the same issue at the moment.?

Please see attached screenshot.

Kind regards,

Alex

When I go to amazon and attempt to use the 'read online' facility the kindle cloud reader seems to load then puts up an 'Unable to load content' message. The same thing happens when I try to use the 'look inside' feature while browsing the kindle store.

I have turned off all blockers (noscript ABP) etc and have also turned off advanced protection.

Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

I am on Arch Linux using i3. I have been using Firefox for a while but recently switched from Nautilus to pcmanfm as my file manager. Now Firefox is unable to save any file or do anything else that requires opening the file manager. Running it through the terminal I get:

"Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name org.freedesktop.portal.Desktop was not provided by any .service files"

I have xdg-desktop-portal installed and have tried xdg-desktop-portal-{gnome, gtk, and kde}. I have also tried setting widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal to both true and false, neither of which changed anything. Reinstalling Nautilus also doesn't fix it. Does anybody know what could be causing this?

Video freezes but audio continues if tab loses focus

Hello, I have recently moved to a new OS, windows 10 pro x64. I have installed firefox 98.0.1 (64-bit) and am experiencing an issue I never had with old versions, it has always been true of chrome but never firefox builds in my experience. If I have a tab open with a video, whether its a livestream or just a youtube video for example, if that tab loses focus within seconds the video will freeze but the audio will continue. Then when I return to that tab/window the video will be set to the lowest possible quality ( despite having a gigabit service) and it takes a while for the video to refresh and then a little while longer for the audio to sync back up. The video has always stopped playing if I use the windows "show desktop" shortcut on the bottom right of the screen, but in every previous version of firefox I have used, swapping tabs and/or windows never had this issue before.

It is a clean install, I do not have any extensions and am not connected to a vpn. I have tried

- turning hardware acceleration off
- disabling webgl
- changing the throttle option in about:config
- checked the network settings within firefox just to double check the proxy settings.

Few things I to note All of my drivers are up to date, there are no readily apparent reasons on my end for this. My system is pretty decent I think, ryzen 7 1700x, 32gb ram, 1 tb m.2, 1080ti Also turns out the video will start to load if I hover over the window in taskbar so that the preview pops up, however in that case I still need to open the window back up because it treats it like I have just opened that website and I have to click in the video to start playback

Other than digging through firefox old versions and testing them 1 at a time to find the one I use to have I am not sure what I should try next. Thank you

I am having a bit of a weird issue regarding Firefox 91.7.0 ESR on Raspberry Pi. Specifically on Twister OS.

The browser seems to work perfectly fine as long as I am not logged in to my account. However, once I click to log in and type my password the browser crashes and continues to do so after each attempt to restart it.

Curious as to why I have been launching the browser from the terminal and each time I see the same error messages when the browser crashes.

"Exiting due to channel error."

Typically there are also GenerateDump messages as well.

The odd thing is I tried Firefox ESR (I believe the same version though I will double check that) on the normal Raspberry Pi OS and am not having the issue. It did crash 1-2 times when I first tried to sync but since then it has run and synced with absolutely no issues.

A while ago some people here helped me get my "custom config" fore firefox running. On windows verything is working fine now, however as im getting into linux now, i want to customize Firefox there.

On windows basically what i had to do was searching for firefox.exe in the explorer then drag and drop my own custom firefox.cfg into that directory. Next step was to drag and drop the autoconfig.js into the prefs directory.

autoconfig.js C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\defaults\pref firefox.cfg C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox

After that i could simply start firefox with my own custom settings.

Now on Linux i am really struggling finding out what exactly i must do in order to use my own firefox cfg. To be honest, i was trying to find out what the equivalent to an exe from windows is in linux so that i could then navigate to the main firefox directory where the "exe" is located and do same as on windows, drag and drop my custom cfg there.

Im using a debian distribution of Linux (Kali) guessing firefox is installed here? /usr/lib/firefox-esr/firefox-esr

Anyways im lost, any help is welcome.

What directory or say what filetype instead of exe am i looking for? Do i drag and drop the firefox.cfg next to the main executable same as on windows or are the steps different from windows? And what about the autoconfig.js, where does it go? does it go anywhere?

Facts:

I selected PRIVACY as TOPIC for this THREAD Mozilla gets big money from Google Mozilla Firefox stands for privacy (or... was standing for privacy) Google stands for tracking, spyware, adversting, anti-privacy. Privacy taking money from bloody Anti-Privacy, it could never end well. Recently i noticed firefox has changed, and not in a good way. New fancy looks, which is infact not fancy but harder to navigate. When klicking on the settings icon which previously directly brought me to settings, it now takes me to a stupid option that requires one more klick to open the settings, btw microsoft is doing the exact same with windows 11, you still have all the settings but you have to klick one or two more times to get there, why are doing this???

I think... Mozilla has lost it's way. Proof me wrong? A while back i asked crowdicity.com what is happening to firefox, post was immediatly deleted... Will this post be deleted or my account? Maybe. But at this point i dont even care anymore.

I mean, look at this! ---> https://www.reddit.com/r/privacy/comments/tgqyox/each_firefox_download_has_a_unique_identifier/
