I've configured my Firefox for Fedora to ask me every time in which directory I want to save the file. The default directory used by Firefox is /run/user/1000/doc/ Even after changing the directory and downloading another file, Firefox keeps reverting to this /run directory. Can I make Firefox stick to the latest directory I used? I do not want to use a fixed Download directory

Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 82.0 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?

Hi! Does anybody know how to disable browser closing by ctrl+q shortcut? It is too close to ctrl+w and sometimes I close the whole browser instead of one tab. Moreover it is really useless and stupid feature since I have alt+f4. Why I need another shortcut which do the same stuff? And why developers ignore this issue which was reported on several forums? I tried install extension which disable it but it doesn't work for me.

How to set Firefox to open new tabs on the left, not on the right of the tab list?

Hyperlink is ok, it opens on the right of the current tab, but not the Ctrl+T or when opening link from the pinned tab. Tab is placed to the far right. Current setup is not logical. If pinned tabs (important ones which you visit often) are on the beginning, and the tabs you are actively working on are on the opposite end of the tab bar. You want to open new tabs near the pinned ones.

I get an error message now when I try to log in to my bank. I have 2 pc's, one Linux, the other Microsoft and Firefox on both. I get an error message when I try to log in-PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR. How do I fix this or is it the bank's security certificate not keeping up? If I use the Edge browser, I can log in, just not on Firefox. I have no problem with any other website.

It used to be that downloading something like a pdf and then clicking on it through the downloads dropdown would immediately open the pdf in the default system pdf viewer. Now I get a pop-up telling me the Portal "Open with" is ready which then presents me with a set of options for where to open the file. I have looked around for anyone else with this problem but haven't found anyone.

Additional info: If I use the show enclosing folder feature it actually shows me a temp folder (image attached)

Saved passwords, on the other hand, do not seem to be affected.

Any advice on how to restore the addons, in particular? My current version Firefox 76.0 on Fedora. Any help is appreciated!

Software: Manjaro Linux, GNOME, Xorg, Firefox 81 Hardware: nvidia GTX 1080 and AMD RX 570

I have a multigpu Linux machine and would like to configure Firefox to only use the AMD card for hardware acceleration.

Rationale: My Xorg is configured to only use the RX 570. My GTX1080 is mostly used to pass through to a Windows VM, but occasionally I do use it in Linux so do not want to disable it completely. This is usually seamless, when the card is not in use: When I start up the Windows VM, it unbinds the GTX1080 from the driver and passes the hardware through. When Firefox is running with hardware acceleration enabled, however, it can not unbind the GTX1080. It seems that Firefox is "using" the nvidia card, so I just want to disable that without disabling hardware acceleration entirely.

I updated firefox with the Update Manager in Linux Mint to version "82.0+linuxmint4+ulyana".

The address bar doesn't give any suggestions (for example when partially typing "you", "youtube.com" used to show up) and search doesn't go to google search anymore. If I enter just one word as the search term and press enter, it takes 5-6 seconds and I am taken to that website (for example searching "facebook" takes me to facebook.com). Searching something gibberish like "asdasd" takes me to a page to buy that domain). Searching something with a space in it like "asd asd" and pressing enter doesn't do anything. Even clicking the "Go" arrow doesnt do anything.

My history is there in the histroy tab and all the suggestions options in preferences are already set.

Hi! I'm posting this in hopes of getting help with a UI responsiveness problem that seems specific to Linux when GPU usage is very high. I use distributed computing through BOINC when weather is cold enough to allow it, but I've noticed that when my GPU is working on a task, Firefox is very unresponsive in most regards; scrolling lags behind my actual inputs, it takes longer to render new pages, and videos have issues like video/audio desync and audio stuttering.

That would seem normal to me considering my system resources are in heavy use, except for two things: these issues do not occur in Blink-based browsers (I've temporarily switched to Brave because of this issue), and more relevantly, they only occur in Firefox in Linux, not Windows Firefox.

I have already checked if this is because of settings or extensions by creating a new blank profile (which I am using right now), and that's not it - turning off hardware acceleration doesn't help either.

I see the Troubleshooting Information dump has a lot of system and hardware data in it, but I'd be happy to provide more details if needed. Thanks!

I'm trying to log in from a different machine than my usual one. Firefox says I am using the incorrect password. I have quadruple checked the spelling of my user name (email address) and my primary password. I am definitely entering them correctly on the new machine yet firefox insists it is wrong. I checked the password in the account settings of my usual machine, under "accounts.firefox" on Firefox's Lockwise (aka logins & passwords) page and indeed I am using the correct email & password. I also searched my email to make sure that I did not change my password and forgot that I had done so. So how can this be?
