In Ubuntu Linux, Firefox will no longer display YouTube videos in full screen. The full screen freezes with the video playing in a smaller window in the upper left-hand corner. This may have occurred when Version 80 was installed.

I use multiple Firefox profiles for specific purposes and want to lock certain preferences for the profiles.

I'm aware of the "mozilla.cfg" (in the installation directory, kb.mozillazine.org/Locking_preferences), but that applies to all profiles.

Is there a way to lock preferences per Firefox profile?

Using Firefox 79 and 80, every time I restart the browser any google-based website gives me a "Cookie mismatch" error. I have to clear cookies and relogin every single time - which is problematic.

How can I fix this? Google Chrome does not have this issue.

Firefox v. 80 Ctrl+F5 and Web Developer Disable Cache Don't Work

Prior to Firefox v. 79, when I was developing a web site and needed to clear the cache of cached CSS and javascript files, I could quickly do so using Ctrl+F5.

When v. 79 came out, I had to go into the Web Developer Tools' settings and select "Disable HTTP Cache (when toolbox is open)" or check "disable cache" on the Network Tab. I could have lived with the latter, that's a pretty cool feature. However, with v. 80, that doesn't even work reliably. At times, I have to go into Firefox Preferences -> Privacy and Security -> Clear Data -> Uncheck "Cookies and Site Data" -> and click "Clear."

That's five clicks each time I need to clear the cache while I'm working, when it used to just take a quick Ctrl+F5 key combination.

I've seen some suggestions to disable Firefox caching altogether in about:config, but I don't want to do that because Firefox is my primary browser.

Are there any solutions, or is there a fix forthcoming? I checked Bugzilla and saw some reports of the problem, but didn't see a fix in the works.

After opening a mp3 file in a new tab, the audio starts playing. When the space-bar is pressed the playback pauses, and when it is pressed again the playback plays.

But when I pause/play the playback with mouse click, the space-bar keyboard shortcut stops working. After this, pressing the space-bar doesn't play/pause the playback.

However, once I reload the tab, the keyboard shortcut starts working again.

The keyboard shortcut works inconsistently.

Please help.

Hello,

I have for now a work flow where I share my bookmarks between different firefox profiles, without any acces to web/net/cloud/whatever..., all is local to my computer. This works well with an old firefox version. But, because there is a but. I'm blocked in this situation. My firefox version is 60.9.0esr. I can't go higher because starting with firefox version 62, there where changes that prevent concurrent access to sqlite databases.

I did some search in addons to try to find an alternative, without success. I also already done a research in previous support questions, without success too.

So, maybe someone have an idea or suggestion, to help me achieve that, or something similar, with newer firefox version. I need to upgrade to something more up to date.

Thanks in advance, K.

So, I have been looking for lots of solutions but none of them worked. I'm using Ubuntu 20.04 and want to install and update Firefox Dev automatically. I tried some ways:

  • By package manager:

First, I uninstalled the default Firefox, removed its ppa repo then added Firefox Dev ppa and installed. Opened up and it was still normal Firefox.

  • By downloading .deb file from Mozilla:

I could install by this way but every time has an update, Firefox will notify me "Firefox can't udpate to the latest version. Download a fresh copy of Firefox". I also have Chrome to be installed via .deb, it can update automatically. Why Firefox can't? It's very annoying that every time I open Firefox, it pops the notification up. It's impossible that every time Firefox has an update (which occurs regularly!) I have to go to homepage, download then install it manually. I can write a script to update Firefox but I want an official support from Mozilla.

Running Ubuntu Linux in version 80.01.

Problem: Since Updating to Firefox 76, a strange problem occurs. All dark colors and context menu backgrounds become transparent. When having a window open behind the Firefox window, it will show through in all areas with dark colors (through images, text, menu's). This problem proves an issue, as I had to change my main desktop background to a solid black one to make Firefox usable, even so, I cannot use the context menus while on a website with a white background.

Solutions I have attempted: Changing browser themes/system themes Reverting all cosmetic changes Disabling all privacy add-ons Reverting all modified settings Even a fresh install using a different (default) profile did not work

What semi-works Booting in safe mode does fix the issue but the fresh install did not.

My question is: Does safe mode do additional modification to the browser other than reverting user modified settings? Basically, does safe mode mimic a fresh installation and if it does do additional changes, is it possible mimic the cosmetic changes that it does for normal browsing?
