Hi all, I have an Apache site on Kubuntu 20.04 with a certificate signed by my private CA. I've added the root CA ceritificate in Firefox and in Chromium.

Firefox throws a SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE error

Chromium accept the certificate as valid

What can I do?

Notes: the site url is "https://hdev.h.net" (with an internal IP address inside my lab)

Attached there are:

- the authority settings page
- the certification authority certificate as seen by Firefox
- the site certificate

We have a new add-on of our own that we were trying to add to the Firefox browser. This add-on was tested locally and worked fine. However, upon trying to install the official add-on to the browser, it is throwing the following error, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt".

The add-on in question is, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchgiggle-search/

Any suggestions to address this issue would be appreciated.

I also noticed another post or two about the same topic. As per those posts, the issue got resolved automatically after some time. Can I expect the same?

WebGL has stopped working. I think this has happened with Firefox 91.

For example, http://webglsamples.org/aquarium/aquarium.html gives the error Status: WebGL creation failed: * tryNativeGL () * Exhausted GL driver options. (FEATURE_FAILURE_WEBGL_EXHAUSTED_DRIVERS)

I'm running Firefox on Debian on ChromeOS.

On about:support, WebGL 1 Driver Renderer: Red Hat -- virgl WebGL 2 Driver Rendered: Red Hat -- virgl

There are no WebGL errors in about:support

I've tried the Troubleshoot Mode but that made no difference.

Searching everywhere and cannot find a solution. Perhaps there is none. Followed suggestions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1297345 in an attempt to increase width of scroll bar but see that just reproduces the default setting.

So the question stands: how to increase width of scroll bar?

The scroll bar is super thin.

Any suggestions for Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS Firefox 82.0 (64-bit)

Thanks.

After installing the DRM content through the browser I still cannot play any videos on Netflix or Udemy.

I have run this website (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/sumo/html5-video.html) from previous answers to check and the results are attached to the question.

I have also checked media.eme.enabled and it is set to true.

I am very much puzzled by this.

Starting as of today (Oct 13), the FACEBOOK screen suddenly moves when I am typing a comment. Whenever I hit SHIFT+alpha_letter at the beginning of a line OR simply hit the backspace key, the screen suddenly shifts about a page up, closer to top. This shifts the entry area where I'm typing down and off the screen. Just hitting the backspace to correct a typo causes the screen to scroll on its own. I have to scroll back down to the entry box and if I make another typo, it happens again. It is maddening!

I've restarted in troubleshoot mode and the same thing happens, so it is not an add-on. This is happening on both my Firefox Linux systems AND on a Windows 10 machine, so I don't think it is specifically OS related either. The screen however does stay put, like it is supposed to, using Chrome or Opera.

Is this a Firefox problem or is FACEBOOK messing with Firefox?

Is there a way that I can change this setting in config rather than downloading an add-on? This changed with the most recent Firefox update for me (I'm currently on 85.0.1. for Ubuntu). Currently, the default save behavior is for bookmarks to save to the most recent folder you've picked. My preferred behavior would be for all bookmarks to save to "Other bookmarks" until I can file them away later.

I just reinstalled my operative system, and with that my Firefox settings got reset. I know there is an entry in about:config to prevent ads from opening new tabs and pop ups without authorization, even from legit websites like the login pop-up windows when doing a sign in in Google, in those cases to allow the windows it's needed to click on the lock icon next to the URL bar and allow it from there. The problem is that I don't remember the name of that setting and I have spend an hour looking for it on Google.

Hi. Previously I installed Firefox on Ubuntu with command `sudo apt install firefox`. I'm using Firefox 88.0 for Ubuntu. I want to update it to the latest version. When I try following commands: `sudo apt update` `sudo apt install firefox`

It says "firefox is already the newest version (88.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1)." But I know version 89 and 90 are released.

I attached "About Firefox" window. There is no update button.

Since installing the latest Firefox update I have been unable to view Amazon Prime videos. I keep getting this error message: Digital Rights Error Your web browser is missing a digital rights component.

In your web browser's address bar, type about:addons, press Enter, and then on the left, click Plugins. For the Widevine Content Decryption Module, select Always Activate, and then refresh the video's page and try watching the video.

If the video doesn't play, go back to Plugins, click the gear icon at the top of the page, and then click Check for Updates. When the plugins have updated, refresh the video's page, and then try watching the video.

I had no problems with the previous version of Firefox. I am running in Linux Mint 20.1, Firefox 89.02, 64 bit.

Hey there,

I have the following issue with Firefox, is this maybe something I should report to the Ubuntu support or directly to Bugzilla?

Steps to reproduce: ---

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Go to a page that contains an embedded video that is not playing automatically, e.g. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/sound_of_metal
  3. Do not play the video

Environment --- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0 Firefox version: 83.0 (64-bit) pulseaudio version: 13.99.2 OS: Ubuntu 20.10 64-bit Gnome version: 3.38.1 Windowing system: Wayland CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-8565U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 8 RAM: 15,5 GiB GPU: Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics 620 (WHL GT2)

Actual results --- pulseaudio process is spawned and rapidly becomes the most CPU consuming process on my machine (especially after a few seconds, when the Web Content ones start to cool down). Even though no sound is actually played! When switching to another tab with no embedded video, pulseaudio keeps overloading the CPU. This only stops after closing Firefox.

Expected results --- I'm not sure this is what should be expected, but I'll give it a shot:

  • pulseaudio process should only be spawned when actually playing a media that requires audio
  • pulseaudio should not be the #1 CPU consuming process
  • pulseaudio process should at the very least not massively use CPU when no sound is playing
