Linux 7.8.2003. Just did yum update. Firefox was updated. My customization (menu bar on) was OK. Running it, my bookmarks appear as before, but clicking on one, nothing happens. Ditto Help menu, where I tried to see Firefox version number. Just now, I tried again, by accident holding mouse button down instead of clicking on Bookmarks or Help, move pointer to desired option, release button. This amazingly works. So I can tell you version of Firefox is 68.7.Oesr (64-bit). (I usually use NoScript, but disabled it for this test, same result.) I am sending this help request from a different machine, so did not click Share Data.

To reiterate, websites the employ a custom right click context menu work, but doesn't override the default Firefox context menu. The websites I've tried to use the right click context menu are Slack, and Gmail.

Attached is a screenshot of me trying to right click an e-mail inside Gmail's website.

I've tried searching the web and starting Firefox in safe mode, but I still haven't been able to solve this issue.

  • Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit)

I've been an avid user of Firefox Monitor for the past few months, but recently over the last few days when I go to https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard and log in, I've been struggling to find the button that allows me to add new email addresses. I've searched the support article for Monitor for this information, but to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-monitor. So I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?

I have Restore Previous Session on Startup unchecked, but Firefox keeps trying to do it anyway. When I have to shut it down because it is not responding, it goes to the bad page when I start it again and gets stuck again. I just got the "We are having trouble restoring your previous session" page, so at least I have a choice now, but why is it trying to restore the previous session when I have the option unchecked?

Any link or button which is processed with Javascript causes firefox to hang. Its window doesn't responsing, however, after some seconds, a small window (that seems like a js-alert window) is shown. This window has 2 buttons, but there's no text in a whole window. Window's title in taskbar is just "Untitled window". If i close this window, firefox hangs again for a few seconds (the main window is having artifacts of other windows until that small window will be shown again)

In certain cases, after i kill the main window process, there is appeared the requested by link window.

I've got these bugs on Gmail options page, for example (but that trouble finding me everywhere on the net, on forums, sites, portals etc.)

I've tried to disable all the plugins, remove my ~/.mozilla, rebuilding firefox – no results.

Firefox is built on Gentoo linux OS. `emerge --info firefox` can be found here: http://pastie.org/1318950

Here are some screenshots: http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/86fd071c0143d6977f9bce91585da346.png http://images.netbynet.ru/imgs/128419a536bec6e65a940e0546aa6741.png

Hi there,

This website's really twisting my mind: I posted some question some time ago and there is no way to get back to it because my dashboard is empty and there is no apparent link to the questions section of this website. Thanks to Google I sneaked my way through https://support.mozilla.com/en-US/questions and then only I could find my question again.

Turning in circles again and again on a website is not nice for the end user. I know you seem to want people to go through your troubleshooting process---which I can understand, but all I want is to review my already asked question.

It would be nice if you added some link somewhere---if I missed it, please point it out to me.

Regards, Benjamin

Can I just copy name.default to the server, rename name.default on the client, and on the client create a link name.default to the server profile? Or, can I use ProfileManager to create a new profile on the server and copy the contents of the client profile to the new one?

I often want to keep a tab open and go back to the search. It used to be that clicking on a search result opened a new tab,but now it replaces the search with that link so that I have to back out of it to get to the search and use history to see where I have been. This is a dealbreaker for me. There does not appear to be any way of restoring this behavior, even in about:config. Help

The title says it all: I am wondering whether it is possible to interact with the Firefox console upon starting Firefox in headless mode.

More generally, I'd settle for some way of accessing it programmatically, in scripts.

What I've tried:

So far I've been playing with the Javascript bindings to Selenium without success:

Starting Firefox with the -devtools option from Selenium does opn the dev tools, but I then cannot send key combinations that will switch me to the actual console, or in fact interact from my `.js` script with the open devtools window in any way.

The search box to the right of the address bar used to be a regular text field. I could put text in there and initiate a search via engines which were configured separately (usually just once).

For some time the behavior has been changed to bring up a popup window with search options. This is really annoying. It prevents me from being about to dbl click on the search box text to clear it, it prevents me from seeing my old txt, and it serves no purpose that I can see other than to annoy the living crap out of me.

I thought I saw another user complaining of this (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1034054), but the suggested fix appears to no longer work as I don't see the option in about:config.
