On my personal home page, I have several links as in the subject: which I use to browse javadoc. Clicking on the link does nothing AFAICT. Is there some kind of configuration setting to get the "click" to work? (It used to work years ago)

There are some workarounds

Workaround One

  1. Copy Link (context menu action)
  2. Ctrl-L
  3. Paste link in search/open bar
  4. Return

Workaround Two

  1. Open Link in New Tab (context menu action)
  2. Click on New Tab
  3. Ctrl-L
  4. Return

Workaround two leave an unwanted open tab

How to remove duplicated entries in history only differenced by URI fragment

When navigating in some pages, specially in google docs, the browser's URI fragment (the part after the #) changes frequently for each page/header/slide, and all of them are stored in the history.

That behavior adds lots of entries in the history and also hinders the usage of the search functionality of the address bar (as all the duplicates are shown instead of shown only one and other pages). I want to keep one entry per document, at least in specific pages like gdocs where the "fragment" doesn't add any useful information and each document can have lots of them.

Is there any way to configure that behavior, to not save every fragment in the history?


To reproduce the above behavior (the same behavior happens in other pages, not only gdocs):

- Open any gdocs document with several headers, or a gdocs presentation with several pages. - Navigate all the document/presentation, and check the history. - Close the document/presentation tab/window. - In a new window/tab, use the address bar to search the document/presentation by the document name: several entries for the same document/presentation are shown (and if they are lots of them, no other different entries with same words are shown in the address bar). - Check also the history: several entries of the same document/presentation are shown (it could be hundreds for long documents, and thousands after seen few documents).

Hi,

I am currently working on a privacy study regarding Mozilla Firefox and I would like to have more detailed information on key log file using per-session secrets.

I used SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable from underlying NSS library to get TLS session secrets [1], which can be used in Wireshark to decrypt HTTPS traffic. I looked at Firefox documentation for some answers and I found that NSS support for logging file is disabled by default since NSS 3.24 [2], that-is to say Firefox 48 and 49 [3]. I do not have found any documentation saying it has been re-enabled by default since then. However, I have made some tests on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (it is disabled on Debian) and Windows 10 using Firefox 106 (NSS 3.83) [4] and it works properly.

So, I have two questions : - Is it normal that this feature still works for decrypting traffic whereas it should be disabled by default ? - What is the position of Mozilla developers and the community on the security of this feature (anyone who have access to someone computer could get all of their internet passwords) ?

Thank you for your reading and I am looking forward to reading your answer.

Best regards

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?

Credit card numbers repeatedly stop working

I've been dealing with this same problem repeatedly for over 2 years now. It appears to be what a number of threads appear to address, but their solutions don't really work. For example, this one: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1360287

Problem: I enter a credit card number I'd like Firefox to remember. It works once--the first time after I enter it. Then in the future, I try to use it again. I get the option to use it from a dropdown autofill menu (it shows the cards I've used in the past, including the card's number as x's except the final number: like xxxx xxxx xxxx 1837. I select one, but it doesn't fill in the box with the number. I can try to select it with the mouse, the tab key, etc. but nothing results in it filling the box, despite the fact that it appears to have the number there (as evidenced by the xxxx 1837 number, the address, my name, the expiration, etc.).

I decide to reenter it. It works again that time, but then stops working shortly there after (a few weeks later).

My system is firefox for Linux 107.0 (64-bit) " Firefox Release November 15, 2022.

I can also confirm that I've followed the support suggestions to double check the about:config info: extensions.formautofill.creditCards.available extensions.formautofill.creditCards.enabled

(Some of the "solutions" I've used in the past have focused on other options.) Most recently I double checked that one, but all the about:config options I can find on credit cards have the options selected that it would appear they would need to work correctly. (See image below)


None of this seems to work; it's pretty annoying to see people "think" they solve the problem, but their "fix" only works for one use.

So I have some questions: -Could this be specific to the Linux version of Firefox? -Could it be that since I run Arch Linux (with frequent updates) something that updates repeatedly 'resets' some portion of the credit card info? (Would it still show "xxxx xxxx xxxx 1837" and the right expiration, address, etc. if it were reset by something?) -Could it have something to do with Firefox's sync? I use this same firefox account on 3 devices, even though 90% of my time is on my desktop Linux system

Recording sound on Linux

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

When installing Firefox, there is an option to import data from another browser. That feature is also available in the "Library -> Import and Backup -> Import data from Another Browser", and it imports things like Bookmarks and History from another browsers.

As the functionality already exists, is it possible to use that functionality in any way to import Bookmarks and History from a different profile in the same Firefox installation? I want to merge 2 different browsing history (like the old question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/928204), and looks like using the "Import data from Another Browser" could help if it's possible to use it with another Firefox profile/directory.
