Hi

This problem still occurs, this time it took about 3 days before it reoccurred. I'm having a problem that appears to be linked to syncing. I can clear it with "Refresh Firefox...", but then it will come back in about 2-3 days. Deleting my profile didn't help. The original problem description can be found at the link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1355876?utm_campaign=questions-solved&utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email#answer-1459234

Are there logs I can review or collect?

Thanks.

Firefox is unable to load module

I've been trying to setup a smartcard reading device, and I've gotten stuck twice on the same place.

When it comes to configuring the Security Device on Firefox, I can't access the .so file. Firefox merely shows the error "Alert: Unable to add module", but I've noticed that when I try to browse my files manually, trying to access the /usr directory returns an error (sometimes, I seem to not be able to get it consistently).

It also happens that the software I installed for the digital certificate tried to open an html with Firefox, which is located in /usr/share/, and Firefox doesn't seem to be able to load that either. It returns a "Can't open file".

Steps followed

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Settings → Privacy and Security → Security Devices → Load
  3. Insert path /usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so and try to load (yes, I've checked that the file does actually exist)
  4. Receive Alert: Unable to add module error

Relevant information

   Ubuntu 22.04
   I'm on the latest snap version of Firefox: 100.0.1-1

Issue When opening a link from any other app, the Firefox switches to another virtual desktop if there's an existing Firefox window open.

Reproduce the Issue

  1. Set Firefox to default browser
  2. On Windows 10, open 2 virtual desktops. Use Task View button in Taskbar or use keyboard shortcut Win + Tab and then click on New Desktop. Now you should see 'Desktop 1' and 'Desktop 2', if Task View is opened again.
  3. On Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window.
  4. Switch back to Desktop 1 from Task View.
  5. Open any link (E.g.: https://www.mozilla.org/) from any other app like MS Word, MS Teams, etc.
  6. The virtual desktop would switch to Desktop 2 and open the link on exiting Firefox window.

Question Is there a way to open the link on same virtual desktop in a new window?

Improvement - If it already doesn't exist. Instead of opening the link in existing Firefox window on Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window on Desktop 1 to open the link.

For the last few weeks I keep getting this error message: An error occurred during a connection to ....... You are attempting to import a cert with the same issuer/serial as an existing cert, but that is not the same cert.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_REUSED_ISSUER_AND_SERIAL

It will suddenly happen for multiple sites that I have been connected to in the past, or new sites I try to open including support.mozilla.org. A solution is to clear my history and restart the browser. It only happens on my windows 10 laptop. I think happens when I have logged off or the device has slept and then firefox has restarted and opened previously open tabs. Other devices on the same network don't get effected.

Let's use password manager as an example:

  1. Open extension
  2. Search entry
  3. Copy username
  4. CMD+Tab into another application
  5. Paste username
  6. Open Firefox back
  7. Copy password
  8. Switch to another app and paste password too
  9. Optionally return for TOTP code

Problem is step 4 breaks the whole process - when you perform CMD+Tab, extension window is closed. This behavior is consistent, but doesn't appear in other browsers. Is there any hidden setting perhaps? Searching lead to absolutely no results.

A recent update had destroyed my firefox experience.

Recently I've noticed that that this client no longer stores sessions. It will only store one session, the last session, and any stored sessions that are still stored when the client crashes again becomes corrupt. I used to rely on sessions to save large amounts of tabs. However, my client just crashed due to a power outage, I was quickly skimming through my tabs in order to reduce cpu usage and weed some out... when the client suddenly crashed again before I could restore them. I lost them all.

All of a sudden I find myself without an incentive to keep using firefox. Why have you made your client worse? Everything I had was gone, and due to an accident. There is nothing loaded on my computer. And yet it crashed for no reason and everything is gone. If I had an older version of firefox, this would not have happened.

Can you please tell me what happened to your restore session feature and why its total garbage now? Please fix it. I really hate losing weeks worth of research. And no, looking in my history wont help. I have reviewed thousands if not tens of thousands of websites over the several weeks it took to accumulate that research. Finding it all again in my history is impossible. That's why I rely on tab storing services.

How about you make a restore session library tab that stores all your stored sessions securely. I am tired of this data constantly being deleted.

[ENG] Hi, After each download, it shows the downloaded files as a slide down menu and while doing this, it undermines the work done by the browser. For example, I am downloading 150 files and they are downloaded one after the other, when each file is finished, an automatic slide-down menu opens and shows the downloaded file. While doing this, if I'm doing something on the browser, it gets interrupted. I want to turn this feature off...

When I start typing URL's in Firefox, it will only ever suggest the URL so far as the top level domain. For instance, I frequently visit trakt.tv/dashboard. But when I type "tr" into the URL bar, Firefox only ever suggests trakt.tv - I have to manually press the forward arrow key and type in "/d" in order for it to autofill the rest. It doesn't matter how many time I type the full URL in or even the fact that I've deleted all history only visited trakt.tv/dashboard, Firefox will still only autofill trakt.tv

Is there some about:config setting I can change to make Firefox recognize and prioritize specific frequently visited URL's over just top level domains?
