Hello :)

Firefox 102.0.1 crashes after some Time. Firefox then is unable to switch between Tabs and stuck at the opened Website.

For testing Purpose i start over with a new profile and did not install any Add-ons. The behavior was the same, it crashes after some hours.

My System is Ubuntu Mate (Ubuntu with Mate Desktop) in Version 20.04.

Here has someone the same problem: -> https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=277649

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi everybody this will be a long question, and I would be really grateful for any kind of help anyone could give me, this is my case:

I use `firefox-sync` to manage all my logins information and firefox-sync's password is the unique password I save manually.

Currently I has problems with my O.S and I decided reinstall it. But also I have 2FA enable for mostly of my accounts, and firefox-sync is not the exception, and firefox-sync's 2FA is based on my gmail, so when I tried get logged on firefox-sync, firefox asks me for my verification code, but my verification code is in my gmail, and my gmail's password is in firefox-sync.

So I lost access to all my accounts, I lose my gmail, github, gitlab, stackoverflow, discord, etc etc... :'(

From the gmail side, I tried all that gmail let me try but unsuccessfully.

So, the only possibility that I see, is recover the information of the formatted partition and rebuild the previous state of Firefox. I mean:

Reading about firefox loggins, and taking a look to firefox's workdir (`$HOME/.mozilla`), I see firefox saves login's info in a json file located in `$HOME/.mozilla/$profile$/logins.json`.

So the basic idea is with a data recovery tool, try recover `.mozilla`s directory and replace it over the current environment so when I start firefox can get access to my login's info. But I'm not sure how much it is possible to recover the whole directory, and if is not posible, my question is:

What files next to `logins.json` should be my recovery targets to replace inside the `.mozilla` folder in order to reconstruct my accounts login information?

I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 which is using the snap package of Firefox.

It seems that I cannot open local files in the /tmp directory. When I place a test.html file there and run `firefox /tmp/test.html`, it returns a file not found error. Why?

I don't have the problem with files in my home directory.

Release after release Firefox is adding more shortcuts, which is nice, but it also interferes with shortcuts people use to enable/disable extensions.

Is there a way to completely disable a given Firefox shorcut without having to rebuild it? Ideally Firefox should have a friendly way to change that (UI or config file), but I accept editing binaries files.

Also, why extensions with shortcuts like Shift+D are treated as invalid and get removed?

Recently, after my computer get repaired, I had to do various things, such as reinstall some software and, in the case of Firefox, put back my bookmarks and rss feeds (they were lost and if there was a backup, I didn't find it)

The problem only happen with this page. I didn't find any other page with this problem.

I checked all what I can about this page (using view-source). I compared it with other xml files, mostly other rss, and the documentation I found about rss, xml and html. Visibly, this is a regular xml/rss page. I didn't found anything special in.

There are element underlined in red in the source code but it is mostly what can be seen as an error if this is parsed at assuming it's html code.

I also check what I get if I do a right click then, in the contextual menu, I select "inspecter" (sorry, on my computer, Firefox is set to french and I don't know the english term ; this is the last entry of the menu). I got a different code. Apparently, Firefox applied (pseudo) fixes to display the page as an html document.

I checked the name of the page. This is unusual but, in my rss feeds, there are several other rss feeds named this kind of way and all of them work properly.

The last thing I checked is the RSS link that is on most pages of the site and send to this glitched page. It doesn't seem to be more the cause.

Visibly, for an unknown reason, Firefox decreed this is html code and I found no way to make it reconsider this or parse this page as xml.

It seem the first mention of problem with the rss feed on this site was a comment written almost four months ago but I don't know if it was the same problem.

I have Firefox installed on Linux (Fedora), Windows, and macOS, and on Windows and Mac, I can use ctrl (cmd on Mac) + shift + Y to open the Bitwarden extension. On Linux, this instead opens the downloads library (which is normally ctrl + shift + j...). Is there any way to change the shortcuts on Linux to be the same as the other two OSes? Judging by the many many open questions on this site about changing shortcuts, I'm not holding my breath...

Selecting text on any page, there's no visual feedback of what is selected until mouse is released.

There's no feedback that selection starts when mouse button is pressed down, no visual feedback while moving the mouse with the button pressed and only upon releasing the button do I get to see the selection.

Selecting works fine in other browsers (chromium) and was working the other day before I did a fresh install of Ubuntu 22.04 (was using 20.04 before) wiping my previous Firefox. So this issue is on an almost vanilla Firefox version 104.0.2.

(Incidentally I can highlight that version number and only that version number in the about-box and I get continuous dynamic feedback of what part of the version number I highlight, but nowhere else in Firefox.)

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "We need to restart to finish updating" <- This last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on Fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Hi,

I'm struggling with how to sort my many bookmarks. Not sure if a bookmark should be in a sub-directory and/or I add multiple tags. I've thought of adding them to generalized directories and then adding as many tags as needed, but am not able to search/select multiple tags in the Library window. Any pointers on what is a good way to do this?

I have things like Coding, Learning, Tools. But then also Git, PHP, Linux. I can't figure out how to sort all these :( Thanks for any input you may have.

Cheers.

Yes. "Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode" is checked. Yes. In about:config "browser.urlbar.autoFill" is set to false. It STILL does it! This is maddening. I'm trying to go to an address on my network for my IP cameras. http://192.168.50.65 (for example), and Firefox keeps changing it https! Then of course, it won't connect. How do I stop this? I hate having to start Chrome or Opera to manage these local addresses.
