I have Sync setup both on desktop and on my phone (Firefox for Android). If I go on my desktop I can't see the history of my phone, I see only the history from my desktop Firefox. On my phone I can see the history of both. I activated the sync for Bookmarks, History and Tabs on both devices. How could I solve it?

Firefox for Desktop version: 82.0.3 (64 bit) on Ubuntu 18.04.5 LTS Firefox for Android version: 83.1.0 on Android 6.0

Thank you for your help!

I'm running Firefox 83.0-2 on a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 on a Dell Precision 7550 laptop, and many webpages have words that look like they are not decoded properly (images below). Everything looks fine when using Chrome. Can anyone think what the issue is?

For the attached Wikipedia page, the pattern looks like it's specific to italicized hyperlinks. I also see it in other places, e.g. any comments in a Python Juypter notebook.

Any advice would be great.

Thanks

I have a website that automatically reloads when visiting. In all browsers the refreshed page is considered the same so when pressing the "back" button you return to previous page. Not on Firefox. The refreshed page becomes new page in history and when you press "back" button nothing happens as you return to the same page and it "refreshes" you forward again. Tried on Ubuntu and Windows 10 (desktop versions).

I noticed a certificate in the People tab of the Certificate Manager, and I don't know where it came from.

It says Certificate Name "SomeOrganization" "sp-control-01", email address "root@sp-control-01", Expires on "November 12, 2019".

Where could have this come from. And is it a problem? I worry that it is from some malware site which put a fake certificate on my firefox or something?

Is there a way to see when or how it was added?

Thanks!

I have recently used AWS MediaConvert to create a webm video file using the VP9 codec.

This file will play for me locally using VLC and ffplay. It will also play in Chrome (either locally or from the web).

However it will not play in Firefox. Error is "Video cannot be played because the file is corrupt" and the console shows "Media resource http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/lg-watch/ff-test_fromaws.webm could not be decoded, error: Error Code: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005)"

But if I encode the same file via VP9 codec using ffmpeg then the file will play perfectly in firefox.

Using mediainfo to examine the files I cannot see any difference in them. Can anyone help me understand what is preventing the AWS video from playing?

Test files:

(this is the one that won't play, encoded using AWS Mediaconvert with default settings for VP9/webm) http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/lg-watch/ff-test_fromaws.webm

(this is the one that will play, encoded using ffmpeg with default settings - -c:v libvpx-vp9 -b:v 2M) http://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/lg-watch/ff-test-from_ffmpeg.webm

On duckduckgo.com with Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) (Ubuntu 18.04 LTS), when I try to use short cuts CTRL+C or CTRL+A within the search field, I lose focus and whole text on the website is selected instead of the search field.

I tried a few things like using clean profile, which didn't lead to any solution. I tried other websites, where I didn't have any problem. Other keys (SHIFT, ALT) don't cause the same issue.

I tried to click only CTRL, which caused the issue.

Finally, with a hunch, I disabled the CTRL pointer location in GNOME Tweaks and the problem was gone. Somehow, something about duckduckgo.com with pointer location, focus is lost. I didn't that shouldn't happen and potentially more websites are affected by this.

Is this a bug? Or is there a problem on duckduckgo.com side?

Hi,

In firefox controle-B does toggle the visibility of the bookmarks toolbar. This is a problem because control B is used to apply bold in many text field and forum like phpBB and this configuration of firefox make it less fun to apply bold style in text fields that are based on ctrl-B to do so. We clearly can do it manually but as we are in XXIth century, a more usable and efficient solution seems worthy. Is there any trick to do so in firefox? I could not find how to change this keyboard shortcut in firefox. Did I miss something?
