firefox shows persian font in a very weird way, hard to describe, but you can recognize it if you also use the persian / arabic writing system or anything similar, i dont have many fonts installed, maybe an essential font is missing, names of fonts would be nice or packages.

Hi Folks,

"Block pop-up windows" is enabled in Firefox, but I still get popups from www.smh.com.au Maybe you have time to investigate - a different type of popup needs blocking.

After opening 4 or 5 web pages I can open no more and I have to restart to continue. I have tried clearing the cache and that didn't work. I also set it to clear the cache when I close the program. That didn't help either. I have used Firefox for years without problems. How can I go back to normal function?

I upgraded my laptop to Ubuntu 22.04 and am running FireFox 102.01 (64-bit) now.

I noticed that (by default, at least) the FireFox titlebar has disappeared. What would have been its contents are shown on the tab-label, though I usually have enough tabs open that only a few letters of the title are visible.

That being said, about 75% of the space is empty on the Menu Bar, which only lists File Edit View History Bookmarks Tools Help Why not show the page title in a pane on the right-end (or middle) of the Menu Bar?

Hello, I just built a new PC and have a fresh install of Firefox.

As seen in the image, the default 'search' that I type into the address bar is trying to go to a webpage (the web/globe icon) I would like it to default to search, (like the magnifying glass icon), rather than having to press the down arrow to get to it.

I had this functionality on the old computer. Curious how to get it back. Thank you.

Hi,

I'm trying to access locally-installed help files that are in /usr/share. When I try accessing anything starting with "file:///usr" in Firefox, I get "Access to the file was denied".

I've already set "security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy = false", which now let me access "file:///tmp", "file:///media" and "file:///home", but anything under "file:///usr" (and serveral other top-level directories) still returns the access denied error.

I'm running Firefox 102.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

Hello,

yesterday i closed my firefox with 4 open windows. Altough firefox is set to open all tabs and windows at startup, only 3 of 4 reopened again. I can not find the fourth one in "recently closed windows" and nowhere else.

Are there options? For example scrolling through the "window-history" in the Sync-Account?

Thanks in advance.

Hi ! Who knows, if Firefox can be used as Browser within MS Outlook 2019 on a Windows 10 - System. Firefox is definded as Standard-Browser on my DeskTop and used since many years. After Upgrading of MS-Outlook 2007 to MS-Outlook 2019, the activation of Firefox to display a mail in "Browser Mode" is not possible. Struggled with MS-Support nearly an entire day at the end it was the conclusion, that only Internet Explorer IE will be supported - but you know, already abandoned since June 2022. Therefore I can't accept their statement and I'm in search of a official explanation, that Firfox is not excluded by MS within MS-Outlook. Using Firefox as Standard-Browser with disabled IE, MS-Edge & Chrome, the activation of Firefox during open a mail in browser-mode is leading to loop, in which Firefox is creating a lot of tabs in the background and Firefox-process can be stopped only by Task Manager, it's really a strange behaviour. Does anybody have had the same experience or is knowing about that is welcome to give me a hint ... Thank you in advance. Didi

Within the last day or two, Firefox has started opening the sidebar whenever I press "ctrl", which has caused a lot of annoying misclicks and prevents me from using "ctrl+" functions (e.g. new tab, cut, copy, paste, etc.).

How do I disable the sidebar? The instructions at the support page titled "Use the Firefox Sidebar to access bookmarks, history and synced tabs", specifically the subsection titled "Toggle the Sidebar on and off" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/use-firefox-sidebar-access-bookmarks-history-synced), are unhelpful at best and incomprehensible at worst.

This problem is incredibly frustrating, and has even impeded me writing this request for help, since I couldn't use the keyboard to copy+paste the article title and URL.

TL;DR Please help me (permanently?) disable the sidebar from appearing.

How do I block autoplay vedio?

I know I can block Audio and Video, but I just want to block autoplay video. As if I use the block audio and video it will mute all videos I open, and I need to unmute it every time. I just want autoplay to not start, not mute the video too.

I would be grateful for any help.

Hi Mozilla,

I am using a Banking website to look at Balances and such. All working OK with Login, View, Edit. When I open a specific window I get a Technical error.

Sorry! We're unable to find the page you were looking for due to a technical problem

The window is a secondary page that allows me to view, edit my future payments. It was working until about 3 versions of FireFox. The Bank tells me that the problem is not at their end but at mine and they suggest it seems to be a block of the secondary window. I have tried to adjust HTTP and HTTPS all to no effect. Is their some debug log I can send to help with the issue to get a solution?

Regards, Greg.

Good day,

I have appointments that utilize Microsoft Teams for the sessions. On my desktop PC (Windows 10) and my wife's laptop (also Windows 10) the links open up the Teams app, and things work well. However on my new laptop (Windows 11, not my choice) the links open up inside of the browser and ALSO don't acknowledge the existence of the webcam, despite my telling the browser to work with it. Teams is installed on the computer.

Could someone please help me to either (or both) get teams to open in the application or get firefox to acknowledge that my webcam exists (other programs do work with it).

Thanks, Joe

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.
