Hi!

I would like to record sound from Firefox on Linux. However, every time sound stops playing(i.e. a video is paused), the sound channel disappears, and when the sound resumes playing, a new sound channel is created. This makes it near impossible to consistently record sound, since all the sound connections disappear along with the sound channel, and they have to be reconnected manually.

Is there a way to force Firefox to always use a single sound channel for everything, or create a sound channel for every tab, regardless of whether sound is actually playing?

I am using Firefox 107.0-1 on Arch Linux 6.0.9-arch1-1, with pipewire 1:0.3.60-3.

Thanks in advance, GOBLIN

So, I am a Linux user who is used to shell commands like mv or cp. One of their feature is absence of prompts like "Are you sure what you want to replace foo.txt?". Because I have somewhat organized fs, I always know what that file is for and if I can overwrite it.


Now I have to download some files, what I need only for uploading onto another website / reading them once. So, I just download them into my /tmp folder and save them under the same name (so I could just repeat cat command and reduce clutter). But each time I download a file Firefox asks for confirmation to replace my existing file. Are there any config flags to disable those annoying prompts?

I have entered the same CSS rules for both my regular Firefox Browser and Firefox Developer. It's all been good until a recent update on Firefox Developer. (This happened within the last 3 weeks.)

My only objective here is to maximize the vertical dimension of my screen. (Note that the Container icons to the right are also "pushed up." The one that looks like a clock and the drop-down arrow beside it.)

I can't make the tabs vertically shorter.

(Please find first attachment below)

When I press "Alt", the tabs are vertically covering around 1/2 of the menu bar (menu bar is hidden).

(Please find second attachment below)

Below is how my Firefox Browser looks like and what I am aiming for.

(Please find third attachment below)

Note that the horizontal line above the tabs (container color indicators) are now gone on Firefox Developer (after trying to fix this issue since yesterday).

My CSS rules:

/* Below: For tabs */

  1. #tabbrowser-tabs .tab-text {
font-size:14pt !important;

}

  1. #TabsToolbar {

height: 34px!important; }

.titlebar-button{ padding-block: 0px !important; }

  1. #urlbar-container, #search-container { padding-block: 0px !important; }

/* Below: Removal of containers' icons */

  1. #userContext-indicator {

display:none !important; }

/* Below: Test for FF Developer only */

root{
 --tab-block-margin: 0 !important;

}

TIA!

Prior to the decision by Ubuntu to use a Snap to package Firefox, Firefox was routinely updated by APT. This was largely invisible to the user who merely had to authorize the update. However with SNAP there is now the annoying countdown that appears every day when I go into Firefox. I have not researched Snap vs Flatpak vs Aur vs ..., so I do not understand why Ubuntu does not update the Firefox SNAP in the backfround. Undoubtedly there are advantages to Canonical in using Snap, but they haven't sold those advantages to me!

Like a lot of people I spend a lot of my life with the browser open. Linux does not generally use proprietary apps for access to tools which use such apps on mobile devices, so using Twitter, or Youtube, or Reddit, or various Google tools, just uses tabs within the browser. This means to update the SNAP for Firefox I have to exit out of every application on my desktop, and then wait while the SNAP refresh runs in a terminal window, not even a GUI tool. Furthermore this is not just the time to apply the update, I also have to wait while 3MB of code is downloaded, because Ubuntu doesn't bother to preload the Snap update! Strangely Ubuntu 22.04 does not even automatically run a SNAP refresh during a reboot, when everything, including the SNAP daemon itself is shut down! One of the first things I had to do after upgrading to 22.04 was to apply a new snap of the daemon itself. Ubuntu does not provide a tool to shut down the snap daemon. You must open a terminal and kill the daemon.

Although I can tolerate the time it takes this update mechanism to run, I cannot tolerate the time it would take me to restore all of the activities that I had open within Firefox. At this moment, a typical day, I have eighteen tabs open in Firefox. Ubuntu demands that I shut down Firefox, which will discard all of that state information, sit around while it mindlessly loads and applies the SNAP that it could have done in the background, and then I have to restore those eighteen tabs.

So I open the terminal, enter "sudo killall firefox; sudo snap refresh". But then when I go back into Firefox it naturally wants to warn me that the previous session was terminated abnormally. I know that I killed it. The message Firefox chooses for this is misleading "Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back." Instead of, for example "Firefox failed abnormally. Do you want to resume your previous pages?" Since I cannot easily avoid the Ubuntu implementation of SNAP for Firefox is there a Firefox configuration option that says "Yeah, I know Firefox crashed, but I would prefer not to be annoyed by a misleading message when I start it up again if there is a snapshot to recover from."

Firefox Promts to Save Password Multiple Times for Same Origin URL

Hello, I'm experiencing a issue with my web server specifically on Firefox, allow me to explain: 1. A user clicks a login button and receives a HTTP 401 response, which the user responds to by entering their credentials in the built-in Firefox browser popup then selecting "Sign In". 2. After authenticating successfully, "Save" is selected when Firefox prompts to save login information for this website. 3. User then navigates to a page outside of the origin/index (ex http://192.168.0.3/foo/bar.html, origin/index being http://192.168.0.3), to which they're prompted to save login information again. Issue here with the second save login prompt.

If in step 3 the user selects "Save" this issue goes away, however, more than one popup for saving user credentials is not a good look. Additionally, the save login popup in step 3 is filled out with bogus user credentials; blank username and "password" as the password.

If "Save" is selected in both steps 2 and 3, about:logins will show two entries: 1. 192.168.0.3 (REALM) 2. 192.168.0.3 Where entry 2 contains the bogus user credentials and entry 1 contains the correct user credentials. In entry 1, the REALM is set as the correct realm I send out during the digest authentication process (per digest auth specification).

During both instances of the save login popup, in the Firefox Browser Console the following is printed: LoginManagerPrompter: Couldn't process supplied URIString: http://192.168.0.3 LoginManagerPrompter.jsm:994:16

As I've mentioned this happens with Firefox and never in Google Chrome (Chrome only has 1 save login popup after the initial authentication).

Would someone be able to shed some light on this behavior? Why is Firefox saving a login with my REALM and another without? Is the failure in LoginManagerPrompter related?

Thank you.

Hi!

I'm using the browser on linux mint 21. It works fine as always but I have this minor and annoying problem with the click on links.

Every time I click on a link from an external application firefox open a new tab/window with but doesn't show me the browser. To do that I have to click a second time on the hyperlink and at this point firefox will appear with 2 identical tabs opened.

To avoid that I have to click once and search myself the browser window.

I have 3 monitors total, 2 of which are perfectly fine as they are... but the 3rd is a 55" 4k TV that I keep at a distance. Is there any way to scale Firefox on my tv without adjusting the scale on all my monitors? I tried adjusting the overall settings of my pc, but Linux Mint 20.3 REALLY sucks at individual monitor adjustment outside of simply setting it to a lower resolution, and I'd really like to reap the benefits of a hi res screen.

Hey there I am a long time Firefox user, and a new Ubuntu user. Dual booting Ubuntu & Windows on a single laptop. When I use the touchpad to scroll on Firefox in Ubuntu, the scroll behavior automatically jumps several lines at a time, instead of a smooth, fine adjustment that I get everywhere else. The scrolling on the rest of Ubuntu doesn't jump lines like this, and on the fresh Windows install I just did, the scrolling is smooth, fine, and normal as well. Even when I use autoscroll on Firefox in Ubuntu, the scrolling is smooth and infinitely/finely adjustable/normal.

I have played with all of the settings that contain the word "scroll" in about:config to no avail. I have been able to make the scrolling less jarring by turning on and adjusting the scrolling physics options, But it's still a workaround because I can't just scroll a hair if I want to. I essentially just slowed the "spring weight" and acceleration action down. Changing "mousewheel.system_scroll_override.enabled" to "false" made the minimum scroll distance less by a couple of lines. But did not get rid of it; Still, the minimum amount I can scroll up or down is several lines.

How do I change this? Is there a setting that I am unaware of?

Thanks!!

Recently updated firefox -- previously passwords were saved even though I did not have a firefox account (not sync'd).

After update, password info is gone -- ok. Followed instructions to set up an account with sync'ing.

Now when I log in to a website I am asked if I want to save the password (I do!) so I "save" it.

However when I go back to that site the password isn't saved. If I look at my saved passwords there are none.

If I go to preferences and add passwords to sync that option disappears after a little while.

What other settings might be preventing passwords from saving?

I'm running linux and firefox 91

While it is possible that some other software is blocking the passwords, the fact that the issue corresponded to my firefox update inclines me to believe it is a firefox issue.

Sometimes, unpredictably, the browser stops working in a way that the page stops working, and trying to reload the page, open a new tab, or even save the content on a page, simply doesn't work. The singlefile extension fails, and I can't just disable it, and re-enable it, the browser won't let me do that, either. The browser's built-in save function won't even progress to completion. That is inconvenient when I'm trying to save chat, or some other ephemeral thing, that won't be available after restarting the browser. I don't want this to happen anymore. I don't want this situation to recur. I'm not sure what to do to prevent it in the future. I'm not sure what causes this mess. I don't know what else to say about it. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong, and how to fix this?

The browser seemed to be in the throes a crash, but it just wouldn't finish itself off. So I killed the main process, which I thought should trigger a crash report, but it didn't.
