Toggling the left Shift key opens and closes the bookmarks tab on the left side of screen. Its very annoying when wanting typing capitals. Also the left Alt button opens the media player. Both these started doing so by themselves. The right buttons of these keys operate as normal. How to turn these off.

After downloading an update, the only thing that I can click that works is the Firefox button. Once in Firefox, when I click anything, the window appears for a millisecond and disappears. So I can go nowhere.

I am communicating using my iPhone, not the computer with the problem.

Whenever I have Firefox open with certain games, the browser randomly freezes and ultimately crashes. But especially when I have videos running. The game itself does not crash and runs completely fine with no issues.

I have no idea what causes it, and I used to not have this issue at all before. However, I believe it was after I upgraded my computer, which should have no issues with the specs I have.

These are my 10 most recent crash reports: bp-c0eafb4b-6fce-47fa-9e8d-3f9e30240707 bp-dc43a38b-a3df-4231-9e02-ff55c0240707 bp-30bc891a-062d-4f9d-805d-539a20240707 bp-8dda914d-f2f8-4534-83d6-2ac690240707 bp-1858f133-89be-41e0-85e0-501a70240707 bp-e785dd9b-328b-4aec-bff0-002fe0240707 bp-3e7288ac-6d1e-4567-9e95-1a4830240707 bp-2777d574-893b-4e10-a69e-245f90240707 bp-62934e0d-9568-4deb-9354-e7e910240707 bp-2ab1d2bb-d244-4118-a7e1-9d32e0240707

Hello,

I deployed central management of firefox yesterday and I am suffering firefox hangs on startup (prior to opening any window) after configuration change from pref to localPref. When I kill firefox and run again it usually start normally. Usually one kill is sufficient, but I observed also two subsequent kills are necessary.

I created these files:

/usr/lib64/firefox/defaults/pref/autoconfig.js:

pref("general.config.filename", "firefox.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0);

/usr/lib64/firefox/firefox.cfg:

// This comment is mandatory lockPref("autoadmin.global_config_url","http://www/firefox/firefox.cfg"); lockPref("autoadmin.append_emailaddr",false);

and in the firefox.cfg on a website I have for example: lockPref("network.proxy.type", 4);

when I change the lockPref to pref in this file, everything works normally, but when I change it back to lockPref I get a firefox hang on startup. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Marek

M3 Macbook Pro, Sonoma 14.3.1. Firefox ESR 115.12.0esr (64-bit).

Fresh FF install right after setting up OS. Opening FF from OS opens home page. If FF is not running & I click a link in another program (email, GIMP help menu link, etc.) FF opens the linked page but also opens the home page (2 tabs). If FF is running, the linked page is opened in a new tab, leaving current tab(s) in place, the expected behavior.

FF is default browser. Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed is selected. Created a vanilla test profile with no modifications to settings, made it default, and got the same result.

On my previous laptop (don't remember FF version - whatever the latest Intel ESR version was about a month ago) opening FF from the OS opened to the home page. Opening FF (not running) from a link in another program opened only the linked page and not the linked page + home page. FF already running behaved the same as now.

My OS account name is changed in the troubleshooting information.

Hi to all,

On website at wordplay.com (like wordl but better) I use to be able to use my keyboard to type in my 5 letter words. Those letters would populate in the boxes on the screen. Now when I do that a little pink box comes up in the bottom left corner of my screen and my letters are shown there.

So, I have to manually select each letter on the simulated keyboard on the app with my cursor. I don't know what I did to change this. I have refreshed Foxfire but that didn't help. Image attached but system wont let me attach the pink box.

Thank you so much if you can help me with this!
