Hello

I have just updated firefox 103.0 64bits on my pc windows 10. And bigs bugs : all web pages became huge zoomed at around 150 - 160% !

I managed to fix the huge zoom problem by installing this firefox extension : https://addons.mozilla.org/fr/firefox/addon/zoom-page-we/?utm_content=addons-manager-reviews-link&utm_medium=firefox-browser&utm_source=firefox-browser

and setting all web pages to 90% zoom with it. But this is not a solution because firefox has to fix this bug since this update! :(


And the toolbar has become much higher, which decreases my screen height, it was better before! :( See my screenshot where i circled in red the height of the toolbar which has become higher! :(

even the tab bar has become higher! :( i managed to reduce it a little in height thanks to a code that i inserted in the file userChrome.css ,but the result is not beautiful : the texts are too flush with the line ( see my screenshot where i circled in blue the tab bar that i reduced with code in userChrome.css )

Firefox Desktop tabs not opening

Hello. I have had an issue with new tabs not opening in Firefox for about two days. My browser is updated to the latest version. The best way to describe the issue is like this: every time I boot up the browser, everything will be working fine. Then, within 4-5 minutes, tabs will stop opening. Every time I want to open a new webpage in a new or already existing tab, it will get eternally stuck on the loading stage. However, if I have something like a youtube playlist running in one of the tabs, it will switch from video to video with no problem. If I close the browser and try to open in again, it won't open (although I've already figured out that the latest issue can be solved with an administrator mode). Other browsers are working fine and don't have such issue.

I have tried reloading the browser, reloading the computer, cleaning cache/history/cookies, running the browser without any addons, running the debug mode, reinstalling the browser (twice), running the antivirus check, creating a new firefox profile. Nothing helps. Also, the problem persists in the debug mode - when I open it, the pages load for 3-5 minutes and then the tabs stop opening as well.

Please suggest what can I do to fix this issue.

I had posted this earlier and got a response or at least I was sent a link to a post that supposedly dealt with this issue.

That said, my original post was deleted and I cold not repond.

Because I need to say this "fix" isn't permanent, or perhaps I did it wrong. Nevertheless, the fix only takes as long as I have the browser open. If I close it, and reopen it, my view is overly large again.

So, at least for me, my issue with the view in Firefox has not been solved.

Thank you.

Hi,

first of all thank you all in the community for your amazing work on Firefox!


I have cloned my $HOME (including ./.mozilla/firefox/) to another Linux device.

Now I realize that changing the Firefox Sync device name on the new device would also change it for the other device when checking "Connected Services" https://accounts.firefox.com/settings. I also can only see the new device name when using "Send to device" from any device.

I guess I have to unlink my new device and somehow assign it a new device ID for Firefox Sync to recognize the new device. How can I do that?

It periodically blinks and that breaks buttons that open menus and closes context menus from Firefox. Also disables some keys, the tested list is arrows, might need to test that on all. As it's version-independent, it might be a dependency issue. It also happens in safe mode, which is saddening.

I woke up this morning and my tab bar on Firefox was out of control. I figured out how to shrink the tabs in about:config. However, there is a huge space at the end of the tabs that is completely unnecessary. I've been googling all morning. I tried to find compact mode--but "density" is gone, even when I go back into about:config and enable it. The only other help I found was to change the CSS code and unfortunately, that is outside my wheelhouse.

Is there ANY way I can get my old tab bar back so that the tabs fill the top of the screen as opposed to having a huge empty space at the end?

I'm a hobby-programmer not trained. My doc is local php file, saving calendar events to text files, run on localhost. The field in question is a line number on my calendar. Javascript uses that number to load another input with the calendar entry so I can confirm that it's the correct line before submitting it to PHP for deletion. I have unchecked 'Remember search and form history', ran 3 cleaners, restarted the computer and the data is (correctly) not displayed. But it is not deleted. When I rechecked 'Remember search and form history' the old input data comes back. If I change id, field name, javascript function name and variable names the history disappears but when I restore those names, the history is back. I want to know why that input can't be permanently deleted. Windows 10, Firefox 103.0.2 (64-bit)

I am pasting this video link first to show exactly is happening when I use Google Images Search results. https://youtu.be/HD-GPkORQPA

This happened suddenly. Everything was fine when I last used google image results, I was playing a game and when I alt+tabbed to search for something, this was happening. I have no idea what could have caused it since I didn't install any new extensions, CSS styles, programs in my PC nor any big changes that would give me an idea of where to start.

I already tried disabling all the extension and that didn't help at all. The only way I've managed to make this stop, was when I opened a private window. There the image search results were fine and I could zoom in, and out and no weird scrollbar issues were happening.

I went back to a normal window in Firefox, and noticed that if I log out from my Google account, this will also fix the issue. And when I logged back in, the issue was happening again.

Anyone have any idea why this would happen, and how I can fix it? Thank you!

Dear firefox support team,

Since yesterday I've been having twitter act oddly on my on my main twitter account, but only using firefox. It keeps being on the 'try again' option window as if the wifi isn't working properly, whilst the Wifi is okay.

It keeps giving me the 'https://twitter.com/?failedScript=main' address too. And I can't think about what Script might be running into an issue. I have access normally on my android phone and google chrome. Doing a 'safe' restart didn't help either, and disabling my extension carried no result either.

I figure, since I can log in on other platforms this might not be a twitter issue, but well, I'm asking here to be sure.

I put an image of the screen I get in the attachments

Thank you

Firefox unter ubuntu 22 hat keinen Zugriff auf die lokalen Dateien (z.B. /usr/share) Der 'open' auf '/usr' scheitert mit 'read'-Zugriffsrecht.

Ganz egal, was in '/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox' respektive in '/etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.bin.firefox' spezifiziert wird, das Zugriffsrecht für '/usr' ist immer 'read'.

Wie kann man auf die Dateien unter '/usr/share' zugreifen?

I have tried removing cookies of Twitter.com several times and even reinstalled snap version but the issue is still there. Any fixes for this? I can't keep switching browsers just for using twitter.

When I use the scrollwheel, I prefer the image/spreadsheet table/webpage, whatever, to move when, and only as long as I turn the wheel, and immediatly stop moving as soon as I stop turning the wheel.

But FireFox has some sluggish 'creep', by which I mean that the pages keeps (slowly) moving before it finally stops. I personally find that very annoying. It's like having old and rusty brakes on your car.

I checked about:config, but there are many options regarding scrolling, and none of them makes it clear to me what it does.

Can some kind soul tell me how to give me back full control of my mousewheel? Turn = move Don't turn = don't move

TIA!
