Mozilla Firefox for linux Mint 99.0.1 (64 bit) - mint-001


Using Outlook web, when viewing pdf documents, it displays strange symbols (incorrect font sets are probably used).

I point out that using Chrome the problem does not arise.

I also installed the microsoft fonts thinking it might solve the problem I attach illustrative image.

Best Regards. Salvatore

A lot of times while coding I press Ctrl+S to save Visual Studio Code and update live server (while watching on firefox the result). The problem is that when I'm focused on Firefox Ctrl+S pops up the Save Page window and (if I held Ctrl+S for more than a split second) it crashes (probably due to multiple popups becoming unresponsive). The mouse can't click to cancel the pop ups for saving the page nor interact it. I have to kill the firefox process and restart it. I've been looking into disabling Ctrl+S shortcut in Firefox with no success (extensions are deprecated or require too many permissions I'm not comfortable with).

Would someone help me to disable Ctrl+S or enlighten me on how to not have firefox crash every time I accidentally press Ctrl+S?

Thanks!

For a few months now I can't upload anything larger than 500 MB on Google Drive. I did talk to GD support and it worked fine with Chrome and Chromium. So whatever is causing this problem, it's in Firefox. I tried with a clear Firefox (one with no extensions by deleting /.mozilla) but it's still the same - the upload starts but then stops within the first 30 seconds. Ping and traceroute are all perfectly fine to google servers, no losses, so it's not the connection either.

Firefox is the latest stable version: 101.0.

Clicking the back button does not usually take me back to Google search results. When I do a Google search and click on one of the resulting links, it's often (but not always, oddly enough) as if I've opened the link in a new tab with no browsing history. I can continue to click on links and build the tab's history, but the oldest url in the tab history is the one I got to after the Google search results page. To get to the Google page, I have to open my full browsing history.

If it's just my problem, I'll just keep doing that, but I appreciate any ideas. Maybe it's how Google redirects? Is there a setting that could affect this? Some of my settings are inherited from Ubuntu Studio.

Thanks.

I imported my bookmarks from a windows 8.1 computer to Parrot Linux Debian desktop (2 different computers). I am missing the everything from 'Other Bookmarks' after I imported it into the Linux computer, I can see all everything from 'Bookmarks Menu' though. The windows machine is not working anymore. But I have a saved copy of all the bookmarks from the windows 8.1 computer.

Is there a reason my import left out the Other Bookmarks but imported the Bookmarks Menu? How do get them into the linux firefox browser.

Firefox 78.15.0 oesr Linux Parrot home edition OS version 4.11

Thanks in advance

I'm trying to load a temporary add-on on my browser, but when I click the button "Load temporary add-on", nothing show up.

I tried to look for errors in the console or debugging tool, but nothing. With snap, I removed with the purge option my Firefox and install it again, but the issue still appears.

Some technical details: Ubuntu 22.04 LTS Firefox version 101.0.1 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0

A long time ago, I saw a list of open tabs in all windows, not just in one window, as it is now. (By the way, Google has added such a feature to Chrome. Clicking on the arrow allows us to see any open tab and navigate to it.) I am currently using Tab Manager to search for a tab. But the tab manager is not the best option because it is too slow to open and requires too many resources. Can I restore the old behavior to see tabs in all windows?

The message about the "Browser being managed by your organization" that shows up in Firefox settings, is new. I've been using Linux mint with Firefox for over a year on my own personal laptop and this message just showed up in my Firefox settings kind of out of the blue.. Can it be related to version 100? I was just trying to do something online. totally unrelated to the Firefox settings, and now I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to get rid of this policy. I tried to set the AppUpdate policy to true, but it still will not allow me to check for updates in the settings, or if I go under help, about. I do not use the laptop often, so this is the first time I've been unable to check for updates, and I would prefer not to have an enterprise security policy running on my personal laptop. I do not know how it came to be on the laptop but any help removing, or resetting the controls would be greatly appreciated.

I installed Pop OS on my AMD Ryzen 3200G computer (with 16G RAM). Sometimes I have horizontal lines and glitches appearing inside the browser. Especially when scrolling and with webpages with commercials. I don't have this kind of behaviour in my other much older computers. Is this related to AMD CPU?

Google News doesn't load completely or update in Firefox on either Windows 10 or OpenSuSE Tumbleweed

For the last few Firefox versions (currently running 78), Google news doesn't load completely unless I immediately scroll down to the bottom of the page after accessing the site. If I wait a few minutes and scroll down, thumbnails are missing on several stories, and many of the stories don't load. All I see is a rotating arrow, as though something is waiting to load, but nothing more happens. If I scroll down all the way to the bottom of the page, every story loads normally. This happens with Win 10 and OpenSuSE Tumbleweed, both with the most recent updates this week, and others over the past few months.

Do I need to change settings? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

You can see in the picture that it gets cut off.

Here's the pdf of the picture: https://mega.nz/file/6wwBUIaC#swNET5o7oGArqOuhxLqGhsPKElxznIe2aqvI0TFKO5E

If you see weird overlapping text, then just reload the page. idk why firefox sometimes doesnt finish loading the page…

As an aside: How do I keep the local links (that are in the webpage) in the PDF that Firefox generates?
