I am using Firefox 76.0 on a Linux Mint 19.3 cinnamon desktop. For some reason I can no longer send a newspaper item by email. Until recently I simply ticked the email symbol in the sidebar, and up popped an email form to which I needed only to put in an address. Now when I tick on the box, there is no result, although there is a line at the bottom of the page, saying 'mail to, and name of article'. I have disabled all add-ons, and the result is the same. It is the same when I have tried on other browsers. However, on another computer in a different room with the same setup, there is no problem. I have torn out my hair for three days and would be very grateful for help.

I am using Opensuse 15.0 and also 15.1. Haven't made a complete move over yet. There is a recurring situation when 4GB rx and 4GB tx movement that I cannot account for hits my 15.0 about once a month. Today it happened again. Using vnstat, I found it happened between 10.00 - 11.00. :

Searched the cookies, one site i cannot recognize came out; "consensu.org". Did a search, there were several, example: https://cmp.teads.mgr.consensu.org/index.html, that served blank pages in firefox. Is there anything odd here? Is there a way I can extract all the cookies with date & time so that I can check against previous occurrences of the 4GB data movements (I have a few records).

OK, I have no question that some wacky combination of keystrokes has gotten me into the issue I have, Im a poor typist at best and not really getting any better.

But Im cruising through my day and all of a sudden my Browser Linux Mint installation of V71, shifts EVERYTHING to about 1/3 of my screen width on the LEFT and leaves the other 2/3 completely inaccessible.

Rebooting doesn't help, hard shutdowns no go. I have more that 1 copy open (3 MAX), and the other 2 arent effected, just the one that was my primary.

This has occurred before and in the past it EVENTUALLY resolves itself. But Id love to know what Im doing wrong so I can NOT do it, as well as a solution?

Thanks hopefully I can post my screenshot.

I've been using Firefox on Windows for a very long time. When I switched over to Ubuntu, I kept using Firefox as my main browser. When I'm on Ubuntu and I try to switch tabs with Ctrl+tab, sometimes the the Firefox window closes and I don't get to access the previous session in Restore previous session in the hamburger menu or in history. Is this a Ubuntu problem or am I clicking on something I don't understand?

Missing device in synchonized device list to transfer tabs

I have two computers: one personal (HP), one from my work (MBP). I quit my job a few weeks back but still had my MBP in case they needed something. I continued to use it and I had to return it back yesterday.

I synchronized my tabs using Firefox Sync on the MBP and could see them well on my HP. I formatted the MBP and returned it, without disconnecting my Firefox account. I got back home and tried this morning to load on my HP the tabs I had on my MBP, but it is not listed anymore. (Surprisingly, some other device I didn't touch for 2 or 3 weeks is still listed, even though it's not connected.) I tried on another device to connect my Firefo account, thinking it would propose me to open a session have somewhere else, but the MBP session isn't listed there either.

I can't lose all the researches I made during the last few weeks :S I turned my side project into a full time job, I need them.

Is there any way to retrieve somehow the tabs I had open on the MBP? Is there a way to get from the Sync server any copy they have for my devices? Does Firefox writes to disk what it gets when listing the data of synchronized devices, so I could try to look into the deleted files on my disk?

Help or ideas much appreciated!

Given that Firefox Developer Edition isn't typically packaged by distros, the only way to install it is manually unpacking the tarball from Mozilla to some suitable location and manually write a .desktop entry. But now that the main Firefox build is available as a Flatpak, are there any plans for publishing Developer Edition that way as well?

I have a few special buttons on my keyboard (Calculator / Mail). I've set them (on lxde-rc.xml) to run a simple bash script (Volume up / down using pactl). Unfortunately, I've noticed that only on Firefox hangs when I press these buttons (tested with terminal/slack/IDEs/Chrome, no issues). It's a ~2 seconds hang that prevents me from doing anything (tried scrolling/typing/clicking, nothing).

Any way to see what is actually happening / disable this behavior?

how to check for dependencies on Linux/BSD?

Hi, so i found this excellent article https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux and I unzipped/extracted the firefox-77.0.1.tar.bz2 file.

By the way, am glad to know I don't have to compile it. Tis a relief :)

So the article above says to check this list @ https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/77.0.1/system-requirements/#software-requirements for "required libraries". I am really good at the command line except for checking library dependencies. :/

Last link shows these 5:

  • Bulleted list item GTK+ 3.4 or higher
   * Bulleted list item    GLib 2.22 or higher
   * Bulleted list item    Pango 1.22 or higher
   * Bulleted list item    X.Org 1.0 or higher (1.7 or higher is recommended)
  • Bulleted list item libstdc++ 4.7 or higher

My fear is i'll have to search around a while for the exact package name since sometimes capitalization and dashes matter when using apt, aptitude, or synaptic.

Here's what I am trying so far. I started with libstdc++ since that's all lower case. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ $ apt list | grep libstdc++ | grep -v unstable ... ... (super long list of lots of different libstdc++) ... libstdc++6/stable 8.3.0-6 i386 ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ So since that ends with version 8.3 and that's higher than the "4.7 or higher" in the official list above, then I'm good. (By the way, just a plain `apt list libstdc++` returned no results.)

And substituting the word 'pango' in the above command gives a similarly long list that looks good, i think. Same with 'gtk3', 'glib2', and 'xorg'.

Oh, i think i've answered my own question :) but maybe went the scenic route with my command since i did not know the exact package names.

Anybody have a faster way of checking for these? Pretty please? :)

P.S. By the way, I'm using Debian but in my experience it wouldn't matter if i was using Arch or even one of the BSD's right now. Yes, tools are slightly different like apt/dpkg, or ports but am mostly curious for what exact package names to search for to save me time. :)

Thanks, you all rock. Love the community here though,

I am trying to install the OpenH264 Add-in from the Add-ins section on a Firefox 68.9.0-esr.1 version running Raspbian "Buster" which is up to date. Even though the Firefox is installed correctly and connected to the internet this add-in keeps displaying a warning or info sticker saying "OpenH264 Video CODEC is provided by Cisco Systems, Inc - Will be installed shortly.

I have waited hours for it to start to download, tried restarting Firefox, even rebooted the entire system will no success.

Even tried to download it manually from the OpenH264 site but could not find a .xpi or .jar file to plug in.

Can anyone help as to how I can make this Add-in download happen inside Firefox please?

I have just set up a Firefox account. I have used the Simple Tab Groups add-on to manage my tabs. I did this on my laptop, but when I sign in to my Firefox account on my desktop, the tabs have not be transferred over. In fact none of the tabs are the same. I have clicked Sync multiple times. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, I have changed my account password. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Simple Tab Groups add-on. If I am going to use a Firefox account I want all of my tabs, and groups of tabs, to be the same on my laptop and desktop.
