Hi,

problem is i have to press Ctrl+D twice in order to choose the folder the bookmark will be saved to (on the first one it only shows "saved to library"). This odd behaviour only started like 2 weeks ago, i havent installed any new plugins neither did the system change. I am on Kubuntu 18.04. with Firefox 79.0.

Thanks

I'm experiencing relatively frequent crashes of Firefox under Ubuntu Focal (approximately daily). The rather frustrating aspect is that, after the crash, Firefox immediately crashes when attempting to restart (either from the crash reporter dialog, or separately after quitting and attempting to launch it again). Re-launching in safe-mode also crashes immediately. However, after rebooting the machine, Firefox is absolutely fine once more (until the next time) which suggests to me there's "some state" left lying around somewhere preventing the restart (and perhaps related to the crash itself).

Here's the IDs of a couple of the safe-mode crashes, from attempted restarts (I figure those are most useful in cutting out the potential cruft; for reference, the non-safe-mode crashes appear to be at the exact same location):

bp-1c86b7c1-de6f-4153-b120-3ac320200814 bp-14a13b2b-6c6d-4d67-982d-132da0200814

Nothing comes up in the Correlations section of the report, and a search of the signature doesn't seem to turn up much relevant. Frankly, if I could just figure out how to get the browser restarted without rebooting the whole machine, that'd be a big step forward for me :)

Many thanks for any attention people can give this,

Dave.

I have observed that work offline is possible only when site has been verified which makes it nightmare. If I restart the browser w/o connection any site cannot be verified and, hence, offline does not work!

Please, tell me how to disable verification: 1) in general, and 2) while working offline.

PS: From version 57 if I remember correct, no multi rows, no extra Tool Bar, no Tab Mix Plus, no Session Manager, no automatic download start with DownThemAll!, no work offline, etc. Firefox >= 57 has destroyed the best UI experience!

Halifax use a card verification process "Halifax Secure" to verify payments made with one of their cards. Using Firefox on Linux, the pop-up window opened by to perform the verification dialogue hangs when invoked from some, but not all web sites. Turning off tracking protection for the invoking site does not solve the problem, but perhaps its redirecting to another site in the popup?

Any workaround, or means of pinning down the actual cause would be appreciated. For now I'm having to switch to Chromium every time I hit this problem.

Thanks.

Hello good people, This is rather a request for advice than an issue report. I' ve learned about the facebook container add-on and wanted to know if there is a need for it if someone was making sure to exclusively open facebook.com in its own profile. Say you set up a profile(from about:profiles) namely "BIg Brothers" for notorious trackers like google, facebook , twitter etc so they can perpetually track each other with simple rules to observe like : - Never open an external(shared) link - Never access any other website through that profile.

Is there a particular feature the add-on is bringing up that the native interface is missing ? The other reason is add-ons are great but they tend to bloat the system impeding the browsing experience. I am the kind of guy who opens 7 concurrent tabs each running heavy js code so the lighter the better.

Thank you in advance,

Dom

Linux debian 8 / Firefox 68.9.0ESR Since Firefox crashed on me a couple months ago, all online videos play at excessive speed (at least 5x normal speed, probably faster). There is also no longer any sound, but that could be due to the speed of the playback (sound in all other programs work fine)?

I have rebooted my computer a couple times since then, and tried creating a brand new profile, but there is no change. I've been running this version of firefox for several months so that hasn't changed. I also had not applied any updates to my OS recently before this problem started happening, although I did try updating after the problem showed up... still no resolution. I assume the crash has nothing to do with this problem since a clean profile hasn't made a difference.

I'm stumped. There are tons of google results about videos playing too slow, but I've found nothing about videos playing at lightning speed. Checking youtube directly, playback speed is set to normal although setting it to 0.25 slows it down enough I can at least see what's happening. I just don't know what else to look for?

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.

I am new to Firefox as well as Linux and my laptop is running two hard drives, each dedicated to its own operating system, Windows and Linux. I created a Firefox account in Windows and was able to export all bookmarks from Chrome to the new account. The Linux version I'm using is Manjaro KDE and Firefox comes pre-loaded and so I logged in with my new account and chose import bookmarks from HTML, having exported from Windows Firefox bookmarks via HTML. I see no file on the receiving end? Any ideas? Thank You, Ron

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.

I'm running the most recent Firefox in both the 18.04 and 20.04 releases of Ubuntu. I cannot log into either Gmail, or Slack. I believe this is a version problem because on an older, CentOS 7 operating system and Firefox, this is not a problem. I have tried removing history, to no avail.

Today I switched the Firefox Sync account from old one to new one (just personal hobby, won't use the old e-mail anymore). I received this message: "The confirmation email we sent to ******@********* was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data. If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account." because the new e-mail was inactive for 48hrs so. It was my bad, I registered the new e-mail to Firefox Sync not long after it was made, so I have to wait for 48hrs till it is usable (provider's policy). Err... I'm not sure if the e-mail I wrote got auto-censor or not, so I censored it myself. I can give it to you whom concern later, if necessary. But I don't get the point here. How can you protect my Firefox data if it is just a whole new account that even not login successfully first time, still waiting for e-mail verification?

Hi. I don't know what it is but for whatever reason from time to time (probably caused by updates) all but one of my added wikipedia search engines (searching different languages) get deleted. Is there a way to tell Firefox not to do this? Or, when there's none, could anybody please change this? Now? I've dealt with this for years and it annoyed me to no end and today's the day I'm gonna change something about it.
