I am using Opensuse 15.0 and also 15.1. Haven't made a complete move over yet. There is a recurring situation when 4GB rx and 4GB tx movement that I cannot account for hits my 15.0 about once a month. Today it happened again. Using vnstat, I found it happened between 10.00 - 11.00. :

h  rx (MiB)   tx (MiB)      h  rx (MiB)   tx (MiB)      h  rx (MiB)   tx (MiB)

Searched the cookies, one site i cannot recognize came out; "consensu.org". Did a search, there were several, example: https://cmp.teads.mgr.consensu.org/index.html, that served blank pages in firefox. Is there anything odd here? Is there a way I can extract all the cookies with date & time so that I can check against previous occurrences of the 4GB data movements (I have a few records).

Firefox will never ever open in maximized window after I log in with my Firefox account and make some changes to the toolbars. Advanced properties to make maximizing default won't work either. It hasn't worked for many Firefox versions I've tried and that caused me to use Chrome. But if you manage to fix this problem, I'll be more than happy to stick with Firefox.

Hello,

I have a trouble with font rendering on one specific website - https://www.checkpoint.com.

Text on this site looks quite ugly (see font01.png).

But if I open "Web Developer" -> "Inspector" -> "Fonts" -> "All fonts on page", then I can see the text renderred correctly in the preview field (see font02.png).

So text uses "DIN WXX Regular" font, but I do not understand, why Firefox cannot render it on the web page in the same manner as in the Developer tools?

Any clue how to fix it?

TLS handshake for minutes, then fail. Computer restart always fixes

This started when I installed V68 on my Mac (I'm on 68.0.2 now, Mac is 10.12.6). About half the time when I start my computer in the morning, when I try to browse *any* site (http or https), I get the TLS handshake attempt that lasts for several minutes, then connection fails.

BUT, *unlike other posts with this problem*, if I restart my computer (restarting FF does not fix it), all is well. A detail (not sure if relevant): the pages my (Comcast) server has local copies of, that is, my home page and a couple of very frequently accessed pages, I can access, but any other site, regardless of http or https, results in the TLS handshake "freeze 'n fail."

  • Edit: I just lost then, 10 mins later, regained my Comcast (internet, mail, cable). I did not re-start computer or FF, but when signal returned, I got the dreaded TLS Handshake Freeze 'N Fail. Again, computer restart let me come here to report.

After a recent automatic update my old problem with Firefox Quantum came back. Every time I open Firefox browser I get multiple 4-6 firefox.exe running in the background processes. When I go into details and try to end process tree it crashes my browser. When I open Firefox it starts all over again. I have gone into about:preferences and

   De-select ‘Use recommended performance settings’
   Set Content process limit value to ‘1’ from its default value

I have also gone into about:config and switched browser.tabs.remote.autostart to false. Still have the same problem.

I refreshed my Firefox but the bookmark file the Help Document said would be in the Old Firefox data folder is not there. As you can see in the image I do not have a file called "places.sqlite". I only refreshed Firefox under the indication that I would not lose any of my bookmarks (they would be saved and I could get them back).

I had many bookmarks. Are they lost now?

I know this has been asked before. And solutions included clearing browser cookies, disabling add-ons, resetting the browser, & coping urls and pasting into address bar. I've completely uninstalled Firefox and deleted all firefox data, profiles, user folders, etc. from my computer. Then used a freshly downloaded installer to reinstall Firefox, with a completely clean profile and no add-ons. I still get this error. I've even tried this with Firefox ESR (Extended support release).

Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6

Here's the routine with FF on this machine: If FF 68.0.2 is running, after a while I will try to open a new tab and be told "Sorry we need to do one small thing to keep going, FF has been updated in the background, Restart FF" I do so. It opens up a new, clean profile in a new window (About FF now says 68.0.1 in this version of FF, and it downloads 68.0.2 and prompts to Restart FF (again)). At which point it runs "a new helper tool" and re-updates FF to 68.0.2. I then have to mess with about:profiles to go back to my profile. Things then run routinely for a few hours or a day, before the whole routine starts over again.

Alternately, if FF 68.0.2 is not running, if I open it (after opening and closing it several times without issue), I will get a message that "You've launched an older version of FF, Create New Profile or Quit". Create New Profile leads me through the routine above.

Versions of the above routine have happened not just between 68.0.2 and 68.0.1, but also between earlier version updates. That is, this has been going on for months. It does seem in the last couple of weeks that the interval of time has shortened and I'm having to do this routine everyday or even multiple times a day. I have no problems like this with FF on any other machine.

I've tried:

Trashing FF and re-dl'ing from Mozilla. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Cache/Mozilla and Firefox folders. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles (and re-signing in to retrieve my existing bookmarks etc and re-setting up View and other Preferences). No dice.

If anyone has any ideas, I'll be grateful, thanks in advance.

How do I stop a 'restart to update firefox' pending update?

Window 7 sp1 I checked '%LOCALAPPDATA%\Mozilla\updates' and the folder is EMPTY. I was on v67.0.x and it would have updated to the brand new v70. Tried installing v68.0.2I had the installer for and it opened in a new window without my favorites, saved logons, etc. I clicked on the firefox icon pinned to the lower taskbar and it opened v68.0.2 with all my favorites, logons, etc. Only seems to be one firefox application in Program Files. I Pasted 'about:profiles' into both and attached is the screen grab. Need to endup running v68.0.2 or v69 but NOT the just released v70. Why does an install or update always change my preferences to automatically install updates??

Hi, I'm just working on a new website, and I noticed something odd that happens only when I open the site via Firefox. On browsers like Safari and Chrome the rgb hex colour looks identical as in Adobe Photoshop or Apple Pages, where I created content, but Firefox seems to oversaturate the fonts quite nasty for some reason.

I attachted you a screenshot where it should be very visible. If this is a bug, is it possible to get this fixed soon? I don't really want to put a warning on my website for Firefox users if possible.

After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?

Adobe flash not recognized as being installed

I'm running Manjaro linux XFCE 64bit. I have the latest version of Firefox installed from the Manjaro repositories (69.0.3-1). The flashplugin is also installed from the Manjaro repositories and is the latest version (32.0.0.270-1). In my plugin settings, Flash is set to ask to activate, and I've even tried turning off the "Block dangerous and intrusive Flash content" setting. Most websites that need Flash don't recognize that it is installed at all.

When I use Adobe's tools to check if Flash is installed, (https://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player.html) this page doesn't show the ask to activate plugin in the URL bar until after I click on "Check Now" so their tool shows that I do not have Flash installed or enabled. If I click allow Flash on this page and then refresh the page, it seems like Flash gets disabled for that website again, and clicking "Check Now" once again shows that Flash is not installed or enabled.

Another page to check if it is installed is (https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/about/) which I found from downloading the flash plugin directly from Adobe in a readme.txt file. This page shows the Ask to activate directly on the Flash content, and when I click Allow, it recognizes that I have version 32.0.0.270 installed.

Most websites with Flash content that I want to use just don't show the Ask to activate prompt and show that I need to install Flash with the link to download from Adobe. I've tried uninstalling Flash and reinstalling, then rebooting my computer but that didn't help. This seems to be a reoccuring problem for me on linux, not just with Manjaro, but also Ubuntu, and even with other web browsers based on Chromium, like Brave browser. Does anyone know what causes this or how I can get Flash working on some pages?

Using 68.0.2 in Debian 9.4 Stretch. Originally FF 68.0.2 was installed in my Downloads directory but I moved it to /opt and is still working fine. Since the release of version 69 it has been pestering me asking for an update, even that the automatic update option is checked on. Downloaded 69.0 and again moved to it to /opt. Renamed the 68.0.2 from firefox to firefox 68 and tried to run 69 but it will not respond. Any ideas on how to solve this issue? Thanks.

Firefox immediately goes to the crash report dialog about half the time I start it. When this happens it takes up to 15 times restarting it for it to actually start. I've tried a clean install and starting in safe mode but the same thing happens. The most recent crash report ID is bp-a433666b-c733-415f-940a-e29210190805. Can anyone help with this?
