Occasionally network connections will stop,meaning that I won't be able to connect to a website and websites that I'm on (like Youtube stops buffering but video keeps playing) won't load new content. When I click on a extension I don't see the extension menu,and only a white bar underneath the extension. This usually lasts around 1 minute and happens daily.

In my main profile, restore session stopped working. The option is set, but it doesn't work. It worked for 3 years since I created this profile, but now it doesn't work.

Recently, this profile has been crashing regularly on quit. I quit (CRTL-Q) and the window does away, then 10 seconds later, I get a pop up message saying that firefox crashed.

Just a moment ago, I had a system crash and now this profile refuses to restore my session. When I started it, there was a new session and all the backup session files contain new sessions, not my tabs. Lost all tabs.

Anyone else seeing this?

Hello. I am a developer and I'm trying to whitelist a website I'm currently working on from tracking protection in order to prevent blocking of xhr requests. The problem is that, although I have specifically disabled tracking protection for the domain, the resources are still blocked after refreshing tabs. Looking at the exceptions list I can see that it features https://client.enterprise but the intended domain is http, without any encryption. Could that cause the issue?

Firefox image uploader's thumbnails are too small to be useful

If I want to attach an image to a document or such using Firefox, a window opens allowing me to select the image or document but these use a nearly microscopic thumbnail that's impossible to see. To ensure I'm picking the right image, I have to open a file manager window simultaneously (which has icons/thumbnails large enough to be useable) and then find the filename of the image I want. Only by matching the filenames will I know I've got the right image. It's very cumbersome and I would love to know how to force Firefox to use the system defaults for icon sizes and thumbnails. I'm on Linux (Ubuntu 20.04LTS) using Firefox 79.0 64-bit.

Thank you for any help.

Copying text from Print Friendly view

I am trying to copy selected text from a web article. If I select the text from the screen and paste into a word processor the text is truncated. If I view in Print Friendly the text is rearranged to prevent this but I now cannot select the text I require because the cursor is replaced with a large Dustbin and only allows deletion of text. How do I get rid of this dustbin and resume normal editing?

Firefox 79.0 Incidentally, the usual Firefox tab to rearrange text for reading is not available for this particular article/website.

Hi,

this is a weird issue with "Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0": The contents of Dokuwiki codeblocks disappears when clicking in the block, not only on self-created pages, but also here: https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:code2

The problem exists only with code blocks in the lower half of larger Dokuwiki pages, therefor might be a memory/cache issue.

Reproducible as follows: - on different machines with FF 68 - 78. - in Safe Mode - with a new empty FF profile

Cannot be reproduced with other browsers (Chrome).

I am quite cueless so far. Any help appreciated.
