Hi,

I've been using the following in userChrome.css for many years

  1. menu_close { display: -moz-box !important; }

to restore "Close Tab" in the File menu, based on cor-el's response regarding restoring menu_bookmarkAllTabs here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/799856

This stopped working some time ago and I am finally getting around to asking why.

I do have toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets set to true, and other items in userChrome.css are working.

I am using 121.0 at home and 115.0 ESR at work and see the same (i.e. no "Close Tab"), in both cases on Debian testing. I do see this menu item when using the keyboard to open the File menu.

Any idea why this no longer works?

thank you, Greg

The Debian Firefox packages available are only 115.6. Thought it would be nice to have the latest. Grabbed all the dependencies according to the Mozilla web site.

Installed Firefox 121.0 as root and placed folder into /opt, as instructed. Went through all the settings and imported my bookmarks.

Now there is a 121.0.1 upgrade available but my browser won't automagically install the upgrade. Says click here to download. So I do. I get the entire tar.bz2 bundle, which creates a full directory structure, as if I was starting over.

Can I just move a few files from that into the existing /opt/firefox directory to get the upgrade? If so, which ones?

Or, can I move few files from the existing directory into the new version, and replace the whole lot? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.

hello everyone; i have a strange issue with my yubikey and firefox on redhat linux 8. (i can't upgrade to red hat 9 and it's technically oracle linux)

its works fine for the first x hours (where x is usually between 1 and 3 hours) and then firefox will invariably stop recognizing the yubikey touch. yubikey works with any other application in that journalctl shows that systemd is aware of it's existence when i plug/unplug it and i get a string in my terminal and text editors whenever i touch they key both before and after it stops working with firefox.

i've tried these things but the behavior is still the same: - regenerating my ~/.mozilla configuration directory - toggling all *webauth* keys in about:config - switching from yum to flatpak firefox installation - switching from gnome to kde to xfce - switching from Wayland to X11

there are no error messages; journalctl doesn't show any either; and chrome doesn't seem to have this problem, but i don't trust chrome and, interestingly, chrome exhibits the same behavior when using xfce.

the only thing that works reliability is rebooting each time it happens and, as you can imagine, that's 100% intrusive and i lose all momentum in my productivity.

here's details on my system:

Firefox version: 115.10.0esr (64-bit)

OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.9 (Ootpa) Oracle Linux Server release 8.9 5.15.0-205.149.5.1.el8uek.x86_64

X Windows info: gnome-session-wayland-session.x86_64 3.28.1-21.0.1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-client.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-cursor.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-egl.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-server.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream qt5-qtwayland.x86_64 5.15.3-1.el8 @AppStream xorg-x11-server-Xwayland.x86_64 21.1.3-12.el8 @AppStream

I have support licensing from both Oracle and Yubikey and i've asked them for help and they both point the finger at each other so i'm stuck with this; any help would be appreciated!

I'm a cybersecurity professional and I'm researching about Same Origin Policy, Cross Origin Resource Sharing and how firefox deal with those things. I've find out that versions before 102.1.0esr, cross-origin script GET requests used to attach cookies (Image 1), but in newer versions, it's not happening (Image 2). I checked the release notes but didn't find nothing about this change.

I would like to learn more about what changed and how Firefox is dealing with cookies, SOP and CORS.

Thanks!

Could we get a totp authenticator for Firefox. I've been using Authy. They used to have a version for all OSs, Linux, Mac, and Windows - as well as Apple and Google phones. They have just discontinued their desktop apps. I was thinking wouldn't it be great if an authenticator was built into Firefox? I envisage it working like a password manager insofar as the authenticator code gets autopopulated.

This could either be built in or offered as an extension. The later may be more palatable lest the corporate overlords label Mozilla as troublesome.

Thank you for your consideration, Joe

I have a website that I host. It is behind a proxy. It is a resolvable FQDN with DNS hosted by a major provider. The issue is when I browse to it via Firefox 124 it eventually errors out with connection reset, however if I open a private window it goes right there. I have tested other browsers and it works fine with them (Chrome, Safari, Vivaldi). I thought maybe it was plugins so I tried shutting off plugins one by one restarting after each one and that did not help. I tried in safe mode and could not get there. So I backed up my bookmarks and wiped out the directory and all for Firefox and tried on a fresh directory and that did not work except in private window mode.

I accidentally used wrong disk when downloading a big file. So my primary disk, where I'm running OS became 100% full. Then I removed this big file, checked that disk is not full anymore, and tried to download again, this time choosing the right disk, but now the Firefox internal file browser, where we open files, and select folder to download is broken, pointing wrong location when selecting disk/folders. I tried restarting OS, reinstalling firefox, but it's internal file browser is still broken. In Chrome it's ok, in system file explorer is ok, problem occur only with Firefox. I'm using Pop!_OS 22.04.

Is there a way I can reset this internal file browser to work properly again?

My laptop had windows 10. I backed up both its drives, C and D, in their entirety to an external drive and installed Linux (pop!_os), but forgot to open the browser one last time and export current tabs, bookmarks, passwords, history and so on beforehand. I believe I should have the unexported files in my backup, as the Mozilla folders are there. What files do I look for in the backup of my drives and how do I transfer them to my current installation of Firefox?

Firefox keeps crashing randomly, sometimes at startup, and sometimes just in the middle of a session. Sometimes just one tab will crash, and other times it'll be the entire browser. I ran it in troubleshoot mode and it still crashed, so it's not caused by an extension or anything. It never used to do this before and I don't understand what's causing this issue.

UbuntuStudio 22.04 uses the Firefox Snap package by default. The latest automatic update does not display pages correctly in normal mode, but does work correctly on Safe Mode. Snap.io lists only the latest version of Firefox so I was unable to ask snap to revert to the previous release (prior to 5 Mar 24) and by the time I had tried to investigate the previous version was no longer cached. I did not see a way to force a fresh download of firefox from the latest channel on snap.io.

I tried the snap beta channel for v124, but that exhibited the same problems.

I tried adding a symbolic link to colors.css after seeing firefox complaining that it could not be found when started from the command line. That removed the error/warning message but did not clear the problem with normal mode.

I use the en-GB locale extension only. The technical details about my PC are as follows:

  • Operating System: Ubuntu Studio 22.04
  • KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.7
  • KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0
  • Qt Version: 5.15.3
  • Kernel Version: 6.5.0-25-lowlatency (64-bit)
  • Graphics Platform: X11
  • Processors: 12 × AMD Ryzen 5 7600 6-Core Processor
  • Memory: 30.5 GiB of RAM
  • Graphics Processor: RAPHAEL_MENDOCINO

I have now downloaded v123 and installed it in my local home directory, and that version is working well. I have removed the firefox channel via snap. It is likely to be a fault in the construction of the snap for v123 that was not present for v122 prior to 5 Mar 24.

I'd like to report them so that they could hopefully be fixed, but reporting doesn't seem to be happening? Thanks.
