When you start typing something to search on the internet, a search suggestions start to appear and they have this blue background color (see the screenshot). How can I change that color to something else? I don't like this blue color, it reminds me of Windows. I searched in about:config for color #0063e1 but there's nothing there, so I'm guessing this will be done by userChrome.css.

Imaging there is some bug in the audio driver on your operating system Any call you made to any audio-playing API will lead to severe problems (e.g. segmentation fault) How can you use firefox in that environment? How to prevent firefox from calling ANY audio-related APIs?

That buggy audio service on my OS is pipewire (bug still exists in latest version 1:0.3.56) Firefox randomly freezes when a sound is played, and the freeze may lasts for minutes

One day when firefox froze again I opened gdb and attached to it Here is partial output of GDB: [New LWP 43932] [Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled] Using host libthread_db library "/usr/lib/libthread_db.so.1". 0x00007fa0f4bb9346 in ?? () from /usr/lib/libc.so.6 (gdb) bt

Homepage changing when a new device syncs; Where does "default" setting some from?

This has been bothering me for a while, but with the start of a new semester and working on many different machines, it's been happening a lot more frequently. Let me explain:

Problem: My homepage for a new window will seemingly at random change to a file in `file:///usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html` despite my profile having a setting for `browser.startup.homepage` to be `about:home`.

Expected Behavior: I set my homepage to `about:home` and this is respected by the system and does not change.


After some digging, I've tracked down the cause (but not the issue) Steps to reproduce: 1) On my linux desktop (Rocky Linux 8.5 -- a RHEL clone; KDE; Firefox 91.13) I set `browser.startup.homepage` to be `about:home` 2) On a Windows machine (I'm not 100% certain if I can replicate with other non-Windows systems) open firefox and login to my firefox account and run a sync. 3) Back on my linux box, when I open a new window, the homepage has changed to no longer be `about:home`.


What seems to be happening is that a sync will simply delete the `browser.startup.homepage` preference line entirely from the `prefs.js` file for my profile.

On the Windows machines (I have not checked macs, or ubuntu boxes I use), the "default" homepage setting (i.e., what happens when the `browser.startup.homepage` line is deleted from the prefs.js file) goes to `about:home`. On my Rocky Linux box, the "default" setting seems to be inheriting the homepage from a file named `all-redhat.js`. Or at least, I think that's where this comes from.

My temporary solution is to: > In about:config try toggling the preference services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.startup.homepage to false on the laptop / desktop devices. (from: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1273715 )

I'm guessing this will work for now.

However, my actual question is to track down how these default settings are coming from!

On the linux box, in the directory `/usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/` I have `pref/channel-prefs.js` and `preferences/all-redhat.js`. There is no `mozilla.cfg` or really any way I see that `all-redhat.js` is loaded. The `all-redhat.js` file does have a pref setting for the `browser.startup.homepage` to set it to be `data:text/plain,browser.startup.homepage=file:///usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html`.

The windows boxes are a little different in that they do have a mozilla.cfg that gets explicitly loaded and in the mozilla.cfg sets a homepage in a similar way. However, the behavior, as described above, is different. The `about:home` seems to be a default, despite the homepage setting in mozilla.cfg.

What I'd like to know is: What is the loading priority of these config files, and how is the best way to setup a system that behaves consistently across OSes? While syncing works great for the most part, trying to understand the mechanics of the preference/profile loading is really making me scratch my head! Does redhat (and its clones) just do things differently?

Hello,

After installing Firefox (103.0.2) on a clean install of Manjaro (21.3.7) Gnome (42.4), I started noticing that mouse hover effects such as highlighted tabs, UI of a video-player appearing etc. are delayed after my PC exits hibernation (I am not sure if that is the only cause and if that really IS the cause). Weirdly enough the select menu I used to answer the "Which topic best describes your question?" question to create this post experiences no delay in highlighting the hovered element. Relaunching Firefox fixes this issue temporarily.

To be clear this is no performance issue since everything except mouse hover related interactions are fluid.

Thanks for helping out

I am using Firefox for Linux (Ubuntu). I can not clear the cache under the Settings>Privacy and Security>Clear Site Cookies and Data. In fact, over the last year the cache has grown from 120MB to currently 364MB. Each time I go into Settings and clear the cache, I'm still have 364MB. The Firefox software is up-to-date.

Vanguard Securities is requiring we replace our U2F security keys with FIDO2 keys before Sep 20, 2022. So I bought a new Thetis FIDO2 key and attempted to register it on the Vanguard site. It fails with no error message on the registration screen. So I tried the following:

  • Tried a different site - it also failed to complete with no error message
  • Turned OFF all ad tracking blockers and pop-up blockers
  • Tried a different (new) key - Failed
  • Tweaked WebAuth in about:config - Failed
  • Tried a different computer but still Firefox - Failed
  • Tried registering the new key as a U2F (it's backwards compatible) - Failed too
  • Searched internet for information - Bugzilla reports that the WebAuth issue was resolved with Ver 99
  • And all of course with the obligatory logout-login/ reboot keyboard dance
  • Out of desperation I installed Chrome - it worked just fine

Everyone reports that Firefox should work with FIDO2. Is there a problem or am I missing something???

How can I close a tab when the site puts up a dialogue?

My wife, without knowing how, opened a tab in Firefox on her iPhone with a URL starting vpn-guard.org/version, and this tab put up a dialog asking her to upgrade vpn-guard with OK being the only option; other controls such as the menu, back arrow, tab list did not respond.

Since she does not use a VPN and I could find very little information about the domain, it seemed highly suspect. We therefore wanted to close this tab, but since the other controls were inactive this seemed impossible. We tried closing and restarting Firefox, and restarting the iPhone, neither of which helped. In the end all I could think of was to re-install Firefox, which of course did work.

Could we have done this better?

I would like to have privacy.resistFingerprinting set to true, and leave it that way. I don't want to keep changing it.

Unfortunately, when I do that lately, walmart.com doesn't work right. It keeps going to the message "Sorry... We’re having technical issues, but we’ll be back in a flash."

Using the setting, at the shield icon on the address bar, to turn enhanced tracking protection off for the site does not fix the issue.

What would fix it?

Firefox is the best browser ever built on Linux.

But, I don't like the current bookmark manager for firefox.

I want to know if there's a better bookmark manager for firefox (in form of add-ons)?

I've seen chrome lookalike bookmark manager in firefox called "(bookmark manager)https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../chrome-bookmark-manager" but I didn't like it (not sure why, because I liked chrome's bookmark manager).

My pattern of usage:

I keep around 10 folders for bookmarks where each folder have 10 subfolders and each subfolder has 20+ links. I keep on editing bookmarks (removing, arranging them here and there in various folders, deleting them etc), so what'd be the best bookmark manager for me?

Every & then, this problem is filed over mozilla support, it's contributors just straight up archive the issue. Please don't do such nonsense.

On firefox v44, ability to ask to save cookies for each every website was being removed. And it's defaulted to save cookies permanently. I could change it to delete after current session. But the issue is, I have to keep track of all savable cookies manually, which is a hor$s$shit task. If anyone know how to do this on latest firefox, please lemme know.
