I want to attach a file and I click on a button (everything works perfectly on Chrome). When I click, in the console I get this error:

(firefox:3264): Gtk-WARNING **: 13:52:46.781: Can't open portal file chooser: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.UnknownMethod: L’interface « org.freedesktop.portal.FileChooser » n’existe pas pour l’objet à l’emplacement /org/freedesktop/portal/desktop


Of course, nothing happens when I click. I have Ubuntu 22.04 and apparently Firefox in installed with snap, and I have this problem since snap is used to install Firefox.

If it's useful:

This message is the last I'm writing before I definitely move to Chrome. I hope I'll get the help I couldn't find on other places (I saw a lot of answers telling to deactivate snap, adding a ppa or some solutions like these).

Summary: Firefox fails to load many sites, and some will kill the entire browser.

I recently updated from Ubuntu 22.10 to 23.04, which included an upgrade to Firefox. I originally had trouble with tab/window dragging operations causing the entire desktop to crash.

Removing the snap and installing from the Firefox maintained PPA fixed this issue, but a number of others remain. (Detail on this part over here on the ubuntu forums if interested)

Now many google sites simply show the loading error for ever and never recover. Some URLS can kill the browser completely. For example, this one from the Mozilla website: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-show-spinning-wheel-never-finish-load The error message is attached.

I am happy to perform more tests and provide more diagnostic if it will help. That same URL works fine from the chromium browser on the same desktop systems,as does every other site I've had issues with.

Hello Volunteers,

Ubuntu crashes while moving around a Firefox tab with a mouse, IF the mouse cursor goes thru the top bar of the laptop screen. I am using Firefox V 113.0.2, Build ID: 20230522193126 on Ubuntu 23.04. This could be an Ubuntu problem or a Firefox problem.

I use Firefox on Ubuntu 22.04, and my system has 16GB RAM. I have been facing this problem of frequent crashes for the past few months. By crash, I mean not Firefox alone, but the entire system. I use several apps and run several processes that require great compute resources, often simultaneously. I have narrowed the cause of frequent system crashes to Firefox alone; the system rarely crashes when I use other resource-heavy apps. Due to this, I have to restart my system several times a day.

Before this problem arose, I would use multiple tabs (including YouTube, often 10+, close to 20) and multiple windows (2+). Such usage very rarely caused crashes, which is why it is surprising that Firefox now causes the entire system to simply hang sometimes with as low as 3-4 tabs.

I have disabled Hardware Acceleration, refreshed Firefox, even tried disabling WebGL. I also tested it after removing all add-ons, but it still didn't help (I use only 2 add-ons: a simple wide-spectrum ad-blocker and an EPUB reader). Even in troubleshoot mode, Firefox will cause my system to heat up, although it takes some more effort to crash in this case. I use one of the standard themes, so it could not have been the problem.

Many people report Firefox crashes, but in my case, Firefox causes my entire system to crash. How do I fix this issue? Thank you in advance.

I am running Ubuntu 18.04 and the current version of firefox is 112.0.1. The problem has occurred on two different machines.

My Friday routine normally involves updating my computers. Normally, I start firefox and get some preliminary work things out of the way before using sudo apt-get update/upgrade (sudo apt update) to update my system.

However, firefox has interjected and updated itself twice in the past month or so. When it says it has done the update and needs to be restarted, I click the button and it restarts. This would not be a problem since it was going to get updated anyway, however, when I go to start sudo apt-get upgrade to update the rest of my system, I get the following error:

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), is another process using it?

This lock traces back to firefox and persists for several hours. The first time I assumed something weird just happened resulting in the lock not being released when firefox restarted after its update. However, since this is the second time that it has happened there is something going on with your updater not releasing properly. Normally, the lock is released immediately after the updating software is finished updating, however, this is not the case with firefox right now.

Please fix this bug.

Hello all,

For some reason, I can no longer upload or download files, with the pop-up window failing to appear entirely. I can upload folders through, for example, Dropbox or Google Drive, but individual files don't work.

I've reset my browser, uninstalled and reinstalled it, opened it in troubleshooting mode, disabled enhanced tracking protection, but nothing seemed to work. I've tested another browser, and I was able to upload and download files just fine.

Is there anything I can do to fix this? I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 using Firefox 107.0.1.

Hi, I've been struggling with this for months and can't find an easy solution or a good explanation. I'm running Ubuntu 22.04 pretty basic, I don't have many custom repositories enabled or anything, just a few additional packages like slack, Teams or Chrome. Ubuntu switched Firefox to snaps as well, and I can't get internet access with it. The error message is:

--- May 12 12:16:20 nuc kernel: [12948.381392] audit: type=1400 audit(1683886580.562:131): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="snap.firefox.firefox" name="/etc/fstab" pid=7731 comm="firefox" requested_mask="r" denied_mask="r" fsuid=1000 ouid=0 May 12 12:15:43 nuc rtkit-daemon[1030]: message repeated 3 times: [ Supervising 10 threads of 4 processes of 1 users.] May 12 12:16:20 nuc dbus-daemon[790]: [system] Activating via systemd: service name='org.freedesktop.hostname1' unit='dbus-org.freedesktop.hostname1.service' requested by ':1.175' (uid=1000 pid=7731 comm="/snap/firefox/2645/usr/lib/firefox/firefox " label="snap.firefox.firefox (enforce)") ---

Simply stopping (and aa-teardown) doesn't work at all, Firefox doesn't even start without apparmor running. I'm not an expert with apparmor, but I wanted to set in complain mode instead enforce, but I'm struggling with that, too. I didn't touch the /etc/hosts file, the error message is a little different on another Ubuntu 22.04 computer I use, there it complains about permission denied for the resolve.conf. So I'm asking the community, how do you deal with this? Searching the web gives me all kinds of ideas, but none of them work. Could anyone help me out here?

Thanks!

Hello, I would like to report an issue with Firefox 113.0 cannonical-002 1.0 on Ubuntu 22.04 lts. When opening 5-8 tabs, the browser consumes a lot of memory. When the system's RAM usage, along with the browser, reaches 80% of the computer's memory capacity (12Gb is the full size of the machine RAM), the browser crashes without generating any crash reports and does not restart itself. Interestingly, using the same browser on the same hardware, but on another OS, Windows 10 with the latest stable version of the browser, with the same themes and add-ons, the issue is not observed, and memory usage is much lower.

Could you please suggest a solution to this issue and help prevent these crashes from happening?

Thank you for your time and assistance.

I can't get Firefox to use some custom cursors. Firefox is only recognizing the cursors that came installed with Ubuntu. Any of the cursors I installed will default to DMZ-White, but Firefox is using those cursors that came installed with Ubuntu. I tried defining the default cursor in /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme but did nothing as well. Also I tried with the cursor in /usr/share/icons and in /home/name/.icons and firefox cannot get in any of those.

I don't know if it's something wrong with my cursors or it's some inner thing with Firefox, any one has a guess? Incompatibility or something missing from the cursor?

When Firefox is running and I lock the screen and unlock it again, the gui seems to be somehow broken. On the picture attached one can see a graphical issue (black frame) on the right side of the browser when resizing the window. When I try to make it smaller starting from the left, the window disappears inside the black frame on the right side. There are also issues regarding the mouse. It is not possible to see which part of the text is already selected when pressing and holding the left mouse button during text selection (no orange highlighting of the text). When I release the left button the text is selected.

This is the second PC with Ubuntu 22.04 where this happens. Both PCs were upgraded from Ubuntu 20.04, so maybe it has to do something with that.

My FF updated to 110.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu and several things which use to work really well are now broken.

For example, when making a new account, the password manager pops up asking if you want to save the username/password, but if you mouse over to that popup then as soon as you enter it it just disappears. When logging in somewhere, if there are multiple choices for userid (say with different dates) none can be chosen. You mouse down to the popup with the choices and there's a weird stroboscopic action where the popup disappears and is recreated as fast as it can, over and over, and nothing can actually be clicked on. If you type in the userid then try to enter the password the same thing happens. It's not possible to use the password manager anymore, both fields need to be typed in manually.

Another example is the search field. If you type something and there are several options from previous searches, and you try to mouse down to pick one, the popup disappears. If you click the search keyword again it highlights as for replacement, then you have to click it again (removing highlight) and only then can you mouse down and choose a search engine.

etc etc etc! All this stuff worked great until the upgrade happened (in the background) and now many things are a huge pain in the ass. Arrgh!
