I've been having issues with the themes on the Firefox Browser. Almost all themes forces dark-mode on the browser. Since update 100 it no longer effects websites, but it still affects the browser (menues etc) despite me having the settings locked on light-mode.

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.

Hello,

I am the developer of the "FlagCookies" - add-on: https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/flag-cookies/

I would like to make a request to include "window id" and "tab id" in the cookie "onCookieChanged" -Event triggered dynamically.

At the present state it is not possible to identify where a cookie is originating from, only the "cookies.cookie" values, but no values for "Window" and "Tab Id" which would dramatically help to assign a cookie to a particular domain even if the "cookie.originURL" or "cookie.url" is different from the surfed on website.

As an example, you can visit "https://freenet.de" which loads different ad trackers - which cookies are displayed as "Cross Origin" in Flag Cookies. A screenshot is attached.

In case you need clarification or more information, please let me know.

I can only install Firefox by downloading from the google play store. When I do that it installs something but it is not a real version of Firefox. If I download firefox from Firefox web site I get it to install but Google will not list it under browser. I have to use it by clicking on the Firefox icon which is totally separate from Google.This is aggravating. Is there a fix to make it part of Google's browsers? I am using a Samsung Notebook that is Goggle driven. I have the same issue on my desktop computer. Google will not let real firefox as part of Google. Thank you .My email address associated with Firefox is no longer working.

Firefox was working fine yesterday. But all of a sudden while playing a youtube video it started being choppy. It drops frames, scrolling and video playback are choppy and laggy, there is lag on button inputs, the system is choppy and laggy too while firefox is open, especially when video is playing. I checked the CPU and GPU usage and I can't see any spikes. I have tried refreshing firefox but that did not fix the problem.

OS is manjaro linux (gnome version) latest. Firefox is also at the latest version.

On my linux laptop I have a lot of saved userids in Firefox that do not have the password saved - which is exactly what I want for some sites (like bank sites and credit card sites) that I want it easy for me to log into but impossible for anybody else. On my Windows desktop now, however (apparently I inadvertently deleted my saved logins), I can't seem to figure out how to duplicate this functionality again, i.e., save the userids but not the passwords. Firefox seems to want to save both, or neither. How do I get my desktop to do exactly what my laptop is doing, save the userid but not the password? Thanks.

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.

Noticed that silent printing doesn't work starting from new Firefox 78. Now I can't even find "print.always_print_silent" settings in about:config using this instruction:

   Set up the receipt printer as your default printer in the Devices/Printers screen.
   In Firefox, type in “about:config” and hit Enter.
   A dialogue box will appear, press “I’ll be careful, I promise.”
   Right click, select New | Boolean.
   Type in: print.always_print_silent
   Select True, then OK.

Could you please, maybe this setting was renamed or deleted?

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?

Hello! Few minutes ago my laptop (Dell Inspiron 5479) crashed. That`s not a FFs fault. But after that all my sessions, bookmarks and (a lot of) tabs disappeared. Btw in search field I see suggestions from old profile, which I also once lost. How can I get access to those tabs? My current device name like tim-dell-FF-nigtly. Phantom device name is tim-manjaro-dell, but I even can`t see it in devices list. (Sorry for my English)

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?

This has been an ongoing bug with FF; I found search results here that are a decade old! And it's a big bug! Here's why: Unit: Linux Mint 20-C on a Vivobook using FF 80.0.1 (64-bit) 1: about:preferences > Applications > mailto > Firefox 2: about:preferences > Startup > Restore previous session 3: I have no other browser on my laptop (which is where this occurred).

In testing by clicking an email link, it went into that new tab open loop (at a rate of about 2 tabs per second), because what is now obvious, is FF browser cannot be an email client; at least, not as it is, and has been. I tried to launch it in a variety of ways (e.g. private; restart with add-ons disabled), but no matter what, the loop would reopen the browser, and continue the loop. I had to restart my laptop in safe mode just to use it.

So, I uninstalled FF and reinstalled it, launched it, and again it immediately looped uncontrolled. So, I again booted in safe mode, uninstalled FF, deleted all FF associated folders on my laptop, then reinstalled it. Fixed! Wow, that's just about as buggy as a computer can get! As the only browser, this created a serious conundrum. Thankfully I'm on Linux so I could install another browser brand if need be.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-or-windows

I finally found this page, after the fact, but this issue should not be a problem to begin with: Bug! Filing a bug report has been done multiple times over the last decade, with no resolution, so why do it again? Logic dictates that If this bug cannot be fixed, just eliminate this as a choice in the next version. Using FF (synced) on 4 different devices, I had to check them all and undo that setting! Fair warning to all. And most will not be as determined to stay with FF; they'll uninstall it, quietly, and just use another browser. FYI

The browsing history works fine, with one exception: once you click on an older link to reuse it or even to simply look at it, the older link is removed an replaced by the new one.

This is very disturbing whenever you need the older link's timestamp as a proof you accessed the corresponding page at a given time.

Is there any possibility for the user to avoid this behavior?

Why add-ons won't start with Firefox? Every time I need to manually disable and enable extensions Privacy Badger, uBlockOrigin (Privacy out of the box extensions) for it to be working, that is, they don't work upon start up. I have deleted the .mozilla folder in my Linux machine to reset firefox and it starts with add-ons only one time; when starting a second time, add-ons don't appear in the toolbar yet they are "enabled" but not working. As previously stated, I need to enable them manually.
