Hello, I have a big problem with Firefox (109.0.1 64bit). I start Firefox with the help of devilspie2 to a certain position. But Firefox jumps to a different position than specified every time I start it.

I found out now that it only happens when "Open previous windows and tabs" is active in the settings! If I deactivate the setting, the startup works as it should.

I would like to start with multiple tabs, is there any way to get this problem under control?

Thanks and greetings!

Funky/Corrupted bookmarks? - Involves Linux and Firefox Sync

Hi folks. Currently I am using Firefox Sync to sync my bookmarks between an andriod, Linux laptop and Linux desktop. At times I have difficulty relocating a bookmark to a given position on my desktop or laptop, but my biggest problem centers around bookmarks that I relocate in a different place in the "Unsorted" folder or to a different folder not always appearing in the new position on the other machines. In an attempt to troubleshoot this further I went to my Linux desktop, signed out of FF sync, backed up my 2000+ bookmarks, exported my bookmarks (both to local directories), exited firefox and then renamed the places.sqlite. When I then attempted to restore from json file and when I input bookmarks from the html file I saw all my bookmark directories recreated but all my files were dumped into the "Unsorted Bookmarks" folder. I finally had to put the places.sqlite file back in place in order to continue working, however, my original problems remains. When I attempt to verify the places database I get the following, but clearly something is out of whack. How best can I create a cleaner bookmarks database?

User Identification Request (Client Certificate) Is Not Remembered

Hello,

I use several websites that utilize mutual TLS authentication, also known as client certificate authentication. As a developer behind some of these websites, we will frequently launch and relaunch some of these sites to test different changes, so we don't usually bother with getting a properly signed certificate for the site. Developers must add a security exception for accessing the sites, which then prompt for user authentication using client certificates.

The problem I am encountering is that the "Remember this decision" checkbox on the "User Identification Request" does not seem to be working properly. There is one site which makes several connections when the page is first loaded and we have to click "Ok" on the "User Identification Request" about 10 times before the page fully loads. Other sites will randomly prompt for the request again when fetching data. The hostname and port do not change between requests.

I've tried replicating this behavior with a basic Apache httpd server setup with client authentication, but it doesn't seem to happen for the basic site. If this is happening due to a server configuration issue, I would like to know what it is that is causing it so that I can fix it. When using Chrome, this behavior does not happen.

Thank you!

Firefox steals keyboard input when audio changes

I use firefox to play music, so I usually have a window in the background while I do other things. When playback starts after a pause, or between songs, the playback window often steals keyboard focus. So if I'm typing in another window, I'm interrupted. Very annoying. It happens on at least youtube, navidrome, and jellyfin.

I've found a few others reporting similar issues that suggest setting `mozilla.widget.raise-on-setfocus` to `false` - but this doesn't work for me. How can I figure out what's triggering this keyboard steal so I can fix it?

I'm using firefox esr 102.7.0esr, but it's been happening for a while. I've tried the debian builds and the official firefox.com builds, same behavior. Thanks for any suggestions.

I tried the RPM and Flatpak Firefox, both in the newest version give me crashes when Loading Youtube, Invidious, Stud.IP, Nextcloud and more "bigger" sites.

It seems like an OOM error, but I have way enough RAM, 4GB/12GB used.

I tried the Flatpak and the RPM Version.

I tried troubleshooting mode.

I used the Arkenfox user.js on both installs.

Whenever I open Firefox, the window will appear shortly after, but it will take around a minute for websites to load.

  • This applies to both tabs from older sessions and opening new tabs.
  • It doesn't matter whether I've just booted up, or if I've been running for half an hour.
  • I've tried disabling all extensions, but that hasn't fixed anything.
  • This doesn't happen when running Firefox on Windows 10
  • I've tried both the system package and mozilla.org version

I am running Linux Mint 21.1 Cinnamon on my Gaming Laptop. Specs shouldn't be an issue. Am happy to share any system info necessary. ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!

Starting a few weeks ago, Firefox stopped being able to save files if a dialog box was involved. (If it doesn't take a dialog box, like a JavaScript-triggered file download, then the file saves just fine.) It also can't open files.

I'm running Firefox on linux, Ubuntu 22.10 specifically. When I run it from a terminal and then watch the error output, if I try ^O or ^S, the error message on console is this:

(firefox:35195): Gtk-WARNING **: 10:54:26.232: Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.FileChooser” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop

When I try to get Firefox to open an external URL handler (In this case, using a Zoom link in an email message in Thunderbird, which opens in Firefox and then Firefox is supposed to launch Zoom), the error message on console is this:

[Parent 35195, Main Thread] WARNING: Could not launch default application for URI: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.OpenURI” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop: 'glib warning', file /build/firefox/parts/firefox/build/toolkit/xre/nsSigHandlers.cpp:167

    • (firefox:35195): WARNING **: 10:55:56.064: Could not launch default application for URI: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: No such interface “org.freedesktop.portal.OpenURI” on object at path /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop

I did some googling and it looks like bugs in Firefox spawning error messages like this have been opened, patched and closed in previous years, so I guess it's that smae bug again? I don't know. I've been waiting for the dev team to spot this one and patch it but I updated Firefox and it's still present.

I've tried opening in Safe Mode, no change. I've tried disabling all my extensions, no change. I've tried refreshing Firefox (ie resetting to default settings), no change. I followed some advice in a bug thread to install the package xdg-desktop-portal, which changed the open&save error messages to the current ones, but besides that no luck.

Any ideas? I know this is a dense one, sorry. Thanks for your volunteer work helping ppl like me :)
