Using the website crave.ca, the browser fails to play the next video in the series and shows the error: "This video cannot be played because of a technical error.(Error Code: 202000)"

This error happens on Firefox, but not other browsers like Chrome. It happens both on Windows 10 and Fedora Workstation 33.

Looking at the jwplayer docs, it gives a bit more info, but not much (https://developer.jwplayer.com/jwplayer/docs/jw8-player-errors-reference)

Unknown error. This is generally caused by an unknown XHR error or an exception thrown while parsing the content; for more context we recommend checking the source error.

So, it sounds like a site coding error, but it seems strange that would be the case when other browsers are working fine. Any ideas how to get this working in Firefox?

I use a VPN at work for accessing some internal domains. Until last week I was able to reach them fine in Firefox, then it wasn't work when I logged in on Tuesday. What happens now is the tab seems to wait for a bit, then it times out with an error that it wasn't able to connect. Is there someway to fix this?

I'm able to reach these domains through other means like chrome browser (which I'm using as a workaround) or git.

Hello everyone! thank you for your assistance and expertise ahead of time as any help is heavily appreciated.

I've been trying to find a way to disabled downloading in Firefox all together. The reason for this is per my organization's requests. As they do not want users downloading anything what so ever.

I've found extensions that can do this, however since I'm tweaking a profile in which is shared amongst all users. Its not the best solution since I have to manually check the add-ons on every time I make a new user profile.

Is there by any chance a means for me to disable downloading as a whole within either userChrome.css or about:config?

Any help again is greatly appreciated.

Open correct program on download with FF on Linux

I'm using FF on Linux FC 30. If I download a file, let's say it's an RPM file it gives I get a dialog that says "You have chosen to open: Someprogram-1.2.3.rpm. What should Firefox do with this file Open with Apper Installer (default)"

If I click OK, nothing seems to happen. The "Apper" program does not open. Similarly, if I download a PDF, a PDF viewer does not open either. I'm not sure why it offers to open with that if it does not actually do it."

Instead, I have to click on the Downloads arrow, open the containing folder, right click on the file in a file explorer and have it open that application. Or, find wherever FF decided to put the file, currently FF favors /tmp/mozilla_my_id_0 and execute the program in a terminal.

I'd like to have FF actually do what it offered to do. I like to have it ask first. That part is good. But I want it to actually run the program. Apper exists on my system, and I have PDF viewers as well.

Secondly, I want to have FF download files in the normal Downloads folder and not some place off /tmp.

How can both things be fixed?

Thanks, Ben

    1. Steps to reproduce

1. Open the history sidebar (on Win/Linux: Ctrl+H). 2. Enter a search string that returns many results (e.g. facebook.com). 3. Select all results (Ctrl + A), and delete them all (Delete) 4. Notice that the main thread hangs until the deletion is complete (in my case, > 30 seconds)

    1. Expected behaviorOS:

The deletion should be not cause the rest of the application to deadlock.

    1. Other info

OS: Manjaro i3, but IIRC it was also present on Ubuntu. Firefox version: 88.0 (64-bit), but has been present for as long as I can remember (at least a year).

In Google Chrome, if you fill in the first letters of a website you want to visit, the browser will autocomplete the name and give you the option to press the tab key and search that website. Why doesn't FF have this function?

I know there is a system with keywords, but this is less efficient I think. You have to set up the keyword and then remember it. I don't think the keyword system itself is bad, but I don't see why there couldn't be a 'tab to search' function with all possible websites, in addition to the keywords system.

In short, I am looking for the Firefox 68 armhf deb? package installation file for Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) 10.

---

I use Raspbian 10 (Raspberry Pi OS). I used to keep a Firefox ESR 68 on hold (apt-mark hold) on 1 of my 2 Raspberry Pi machines. I offered this machine to a friend.

Now on my only left Raspberry Pi, Firefox ESR 68 is no longer provided by apt.

But I still need Firefox 68 on it, in order to remotely debug my userscripts on Firefox for Android 68.11.0 (latest version to support add-ons like Violentmonkey, thus userscripts) through adb.

Anyone knows how to install it back? I think I need an armhf.deb file, right?

I found: http://legacy.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://github.com/jdonald/firefox-armhf/releases

But no trace of a version 68 deb file.

I then found some firefox-68.11.0esr.tar.bz2 in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/linux-x86_64/ Is x86_64 same as armhf? How do we install .tar.bz2 files in Linux?

I also see a firefox-68.11.0esr.snap in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/snap/ I would like to avoid installing snap but maybe I should try this instead, does it include armhf?

Firefox lost all my logins/passwords. This happened last year and now it happens again. I've tried to find the old logins.json file and of course it does not work with it. It is empty. I'm using linux and there is no problem with any antivirus, it is simply a Firefox 'classical' error!

WHY is this happening? What is in the mind of the programmer responsible for this error? I can't understand why is he unable to keep a single file intact?

Why Mozilla is blaming the user for not having a backup. Firefox is messing this file, not the user! Why don't you fix Firefox and stop blaming the user? Why don't you simply FIX THE PROBLEM? You are "working on it" for years. Is it rocket science to JUST LET THE FILE ALONE?

How to make tabs look like tabs again?

I've just upgraded to Firefox 89 on Linux. Tabs now appear with an icon and some text, a top and bottom border, but no side border, except for the active tab which has a box around it.

I don't like this. I want a tab to look like a tab in a card index - A border at the left and right and top, and preferably rounded top corners. I get that this is one of the new features of this version....

but I hate it already.

In the attached screenshot, you can see how Palemoon does it (how Firefox used to do it). Without borders, there is no distinction between my bookmarks bar and my tabs bar.

How do I get it back to the old way. If there is no way of doing this, please fix it so that there is.

Rationale: I hate "flat" UIs. I want Radio buttons to look like buttons on a radio. I want buttons to look like buttons that you press; tabs to look like tabs. Scroll bars to be there all the time and big enough to grab and scroll etc.
