firefox returns lots of:

       libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate
      ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overidden by environment


When I added a line to /etc/drirc to specify a value firefox returns:

       ATTENTION: option value of option mesa_glthread ignored.

How can I make this stop?

I have set my privacy settings to block all third-party cookies, but it makes wading through the console annoying when working with my userscripts.

Not only do I not care as practically every site complains about it, but the warning isn't even useful in understanding what has been blocked most of the time. I just end up with a console filled with "Cookie “” has been rejected as third-party." from a bunch of random sources.

Is there some way to suppress these and only these warnings? I want to be able to actually use warnings in my scripts. As of now, I just don't display warnings and use the other logging levels.

When typing in the search bar, recommendations start to appear (how I have my browser set-up). Default is to press the down arrow key to move down to the next suggestion. Is there a way to reverse this so pressing up rather than down will do the same action?

Is there a value that I can modify in about:config or write a line of CSS code to accomplish this?

I have read through other bug reports about this issue that has seemed to happen multiple times over the past 5+ years...

I am unable to use my laptop touchscreen in Firefox browser for scrolling or long-hold to right click. Attempted scrolling or pinch-zoom just highlights text.

I see in the config options that the GTK build specifies Wayland. I am very new to all of this so I am not totally sure what that means or if it makes a big difference..? I'm running X11, not Wayland.

Any help is very much appreciated!

Hello everyone,

are there equivalent options to 'browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel' (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370567#answer-1521671) that would allow to DISABLE the automatic display of the URL and Search fields' panel?

I find these panels visually too invasive, and I don't need them most of the time (while being happy of their existence, but I'd expect them to appear when I ask, not each and every time I click the URL or Search field!).

If no such options exist, would it be possible to add them?

Thank you :)

Hi, first some introduction. There two methods to download file from server:

  • left click on file and file could be opened in internal viewer (in case of PDF),
  • right click and "Save Link As..." which saves file to disk.

But when I try to download file from protected area (I will describe server below) it doesn't work as described above.

When I enter protected area on server I authenticate as usual. There's pop-up asking for Username and Password. I log in and then when I:

  • left click on file it opens in internal viewer but...
  • when I right click on file and use "Save Link As..." authentication pop-up opens again.

I can then put my credentials or I can just press Cancel, whatever I choose file is downloaded. Same happens for every file dowloaded with right click.

This is annoying if someone wants to download multiple files.

OK, now what happens on server side? There's Apache2 configured with basic authentication method. When I left click server log shows: 192.168.1.99 - user1 [25/Jul/2022:14:46:39 +0200] "GET /area1/test_file.pdf HTTP/1.1" 200 849985 but when I right click, server says: 192.168.1.99 - - [25/Jul/2022:14:48:11 +0200] "GET /area1/test_file.pdf HTTP/1.1" 401 464 192.168.1.99 - - [25/Jul/2022:14:48:13 +0200] "GET /area1/test_file.pdf HTTP/1.1" 401 464

So, as you can see with left click server respons with "200 OK" status code, but with right click it says two times that I'm unauthorized (401 Status Code). And even I'm so called unauthorized, I can download this file.

Chrome do not asks for authorization every time I try to download file. I log in only once and then I can dowload many files with right click.

I tested it with other than PDF formats and FF asks for auth everytime.

Will someone help me understand this situation?

Cheers, Paweł p.s. I can provide configuration of Apache server if that could help.

I can't pinpoint exactly when it started, but Firefox snap in Xubuntu 22.04 does not properly handle the Facebook newsfeed any more. Facebook seems to push content into the feed in the background. On Chromium, the feed continues to display the elements you're reading; other content slots in around it. In Firefox, this push results in a constantly changing barrage of feed posts. It's impossible to read one element because the display jumps around.

Is this a known issue? If yes, is a fix expected?

I'm unable to get surround sound working from my firefox browser in linux. I've search the internet far and wide but there is no information about this issue or if firefox even supports handling surround sound. It's not the websites because I tested them with other browser and for those it works. I've tried switching to brave which does support surround but doesn't play nice with how I currently have setup my desktop. Can anyone provide me with some information about this or point me in the right direction?

Hi,

I have always used a "clear mostly everything" at exit approach to privacy. Before using FF I'd set exceptions for cookies that I prefer to keep (like search engine preferences) but I understand that isn't possible in FF, so I ended up using a different approach. On Unix-based systems I'd "quit" FF by with `pkill -9 -f firefox` (or waterfox). Somehow that worked (e.g. when restarting after an update) despite the obvious loophole it created but it was a welcome way to restart the browser without having to log in. Recently it stopped working though, and I find myself logged off every site I was logged in to, including Google and e.g. Whatsapp's web interface. Extremely annoying now that so many sites use 2FA.

Can you confirm this impression that the loophole has been closed, and security+privacy-related data is now removed at startup (too)?

Is there an way to quit/restart the browser without clearing this data, e.g. after an update or to release build-up RAM usage back to the system, while keeping the default "clear everything"? Is there an option not to lose logins etc. after a crash?

FWIW, the other reason I used this approach is because the open windows+tabs restore tended to be more reliable after a crash than after a normal shutdown (which would often miss a few tabs that I would not always miss at once).

Thanks in advance!

Since upgrading to Firefox 103.0.1 on Linux Mint I am noticing that clicking on the URL bar or typing anything into it now adds "Search with Google" and "Search with Amazon" in the dropdown URL suggestions. This is unwanted behaviour since I have those search engines disabled.

In searching for an answer I found some old suggestions such as setting browser.urlbar.unifiedcomplete to false. However this no longer works.

I am trying to print html as a book using Paged.js and discovered that fonts are rendered slightly narrower when processing "Save to PDF", which means more characters fit on one line leaving too few characters for the last line on the page to justify, making it too stretched out.

Looking for the root of the problem I made a simple page with multi-column layout and "Save to PDF" breaks up the text differently there, too.

CSS for it is:

 width: 500px;
 column-count: 4;
 column-width: 100px;
 font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
 text-align: justify;
 text-justify: inter-character;

In the picture is a screenshot of the display at the top and screenshot of the pdf below. They came at different resolutions so I aligned them as best as I could. In this case browser puts "ex ea commodo" in the second column on one line but in pdf "commodo" goes onto the next one.
