I followed something in reddit. Now I have all my accounts signed out. This issue has been going because neither for my Temporary Add-on was working nor the buttons I tested. Is there anything to do to prevent this error in the future? I am starting to hate this browser as updates kept on-going and just slowly killing my browser ( especially losing pinned tabs for my important big projects in school )

I installed Firefox on a new device and initiated a sync for multi-account containers - it promptly synced in the wrong direction. It eliminated all customization from what should have been the source (the existing device), overwriting it with the default settings of a first-time installation. I was quite surprised.

This leads me to a couple of questions.

1. Is there a sync version history or any way of rolling back a sync? 2. Is there a way to explicitly choose the sync direction?

Quite honestly it is very confusing that there is no reference whatsoever to which way an initial sync will go. I was hesitant to risk this, decided to trust it knew what to do (even though it didn't give me any indication that it did) and lost my gamble.

Firefox knows the device names, so can I suggest some basic reassuring UX be inserted into this process with something like "Initiate sync from X-DEVICE-FIREFOX to Y-DEVICE-FIREFOX?". A bit of clarity would be helpful here, as well as a way to roll back a syncing mistake instead of just having to gamble possibly losing hard-won customization with no going back.

Or have I completely stumbled past some obvious place where everything I'm requesting exists and is accessible already?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

Hi,

I am on a Mac Pro running High Sierra. Everytime I launch Firefox I get a error message that "this file may harm your computer" which is a .dmg in my downloads toolbar. I think I clicked on a bad link. I have cleared my cache and history and it still always pops up. I do not want this file nor do I want it to give me this warning everytime I launch Firefox.

Any advice is helpful.

Thanks

fresh install RHEL 8.5 FF 91.2.0esr

i start a vid in youtube. the sound has static. if i open another window, even on a site that doesn't play video or sound, the sound and picture on the first window instantly get out of sync. the picture runs about 2-3 seconds ahead of the audio.

i have not customized the setup. this is a "stock" configuration. i have lots up upload, download speed. 20Mbps up, 80Mbps down.

A lot of webGL apps are very low framerate (and lie about their framecounts), for example: https://webglsamples.org/blob/blob.html This runs smoothly at 60 fps in chromium, but in firefox it behaves badly. The fps counter flickers as either 53 or 80, but in reality it is maybe 15fps or lower and very stuttery. The resolution, number of blobs, or size of the window does not change anything.

  • If I enter Troubleshooting Mode, it all returns to working order. The FPS is fixed

I have tried disabling ALL extensions, changing to the default theme, disabling hardware acceleration, deleting cache+cookies+history

I installed firefox developer edition and checked it there, and it was at 60 fps, until I logged into Sync, when it then dropped.


I use KDE manjaro linux and have hardware that is definitely good enough to run the content at high framerates normally (everything works perfect in chromium)

We use Firefox in our small business to deliver web-based apps for visitor sign-in at schools. We specify Firefox ESR primarily because of the Silent Print feature and the fact it is much easier to enable in Firefox than other major browsers.

With the ESR 91 release we began getting reports from customers that our web-app was no printing the name tags to a locally connected label printer. The printer has been checked. Drivers are installed and updated. The target label printer is designated as the default for the Win-PC station.

The config of the Firefox print function has been verified so that it is targeting the right local device and has the relevant print settings correct.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = TRUE the sign-in process completes and no name tag is printed to the label printer.

When we run with PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT = FALSE the sign-in process completes, the print dialog pops and upon clicking the PRINT button the name tag prints to the label printer.

What's up with the PRINT.ALWAYS_PRINT_SILENT setting? It used to work, when we were running ESR78. Silent printing has been our selling point to run Firefox on hundreds of PC/Win (and Mac) workstations across our customer sites. Without this feature enabled and working, our customers are going to start asking to move back to Chrome or Edge.

Is it possible to remove / hide individual elements inside the Library popup's #placesList (i.e. the Tag item and/or the icons of any of the items)?

My attempt with the code below inside userchrome removed ALL of the side panel content - not ideal.

#placesList > treechildren:nth-child(2) {
  display: none !important;

}

Also, is it actually possible for the Browser Toolbox to work inside popups?

Since firefox updated this morning, I'm no longer able to log in to some sites using forms once auto fill is active.

I've created a new blank profile to test, and it's the same behaviour.

1. start blank profile 2. visit https://bandcamp.com/login 3. enter a username and password (doesn't matter that it's not real) and hit Submit 4. tell Firefox to remember password. 5. clear the form and reload the login page. 6. try to allow firefox to auto fill the fields

There's a really weird mix of things that go on

- sometimes one of the fields is populated, more often they both go yellow, but blank. - double clicking in a field seems to momentarily reveal contents, but then it goes blank again. - typing in an apparently blank but yellow field seems to suddenly append characters to the auto-filled value.
