Just before I got the message We've upgraded Firefox in the background, causing me to have to close and reopen Firefox, Firefox , which I use to get mail from Outlook over my objections, dumped into the folder I had open at the time a folder called 'Mail'. Its contents are a huge number of files with the extension js, 25Mb worth. I have put this in the trash. But before I knew it was there I backed up my files on a second laptop. There the folder and its contents do not respond to -- do not allow-- the command to put in trash. The file names are grey so that they cannot even be selected to trash them. How do I get rid of this stuff? If I don't get rid of it, I daren't back up the files of that computer onto mine because I'd get it all back. So there is some urgency to the question. Sample file listed: Mail - Robert Thomas - Outlook_files/profilephotopicker_without-react_0497945b6204f57b88e6.js

I am using Firefox Nightly on Linux.

I have two M171 Logitech mouses. Their scroll wheel works fine everywhere except firefox (chrome works fine, for instance). In firefox, I need to press the scroll wheel down, keep it down and scroll. Then, it scrolls. But just freely scrolling with the mouse does not scroll the page, it does nothing. This happens in every web page. Interestingly, if I use the scroll wheel in the popup of an addon (for instance in the tab listing of a group in Simple Tab Groups), it works there. But not in web pages or the sidebar. I have also tried entering safe mode, but it didn't help.

Did anyone have this issue too?

When I put firefox in fullscreen mode, either by maximizing the window in sway (a wayland window manager), pressing f11, or fullscreening a video, colorful glitched pixels appear wherever there's motion on the screen. For example when scrolling, these glitches appear around the edges of things, or when watching a video, the glitches appear around things moving in the video. I can't demonstrate, because the problem goes away when I try to record the screen. Safe mode doesn't help. The problem is not present under X11, or when using chromium instead. It's been like this for a few months.

Every time I need to share my entire screen on Google Meet (or any other similar app) I'm always asked if I want to share a single window or full screen. But if I try to remember the decision to always share my full screen, Firefox tells me "Firefox can not allow permanent access to your screen". Is there a way to let Firefox allow me to remember the decision forever? Thanks

Starting recently (maybe a few weeks ago) none of my add-ons work reliably. They all break in their own special way but considering they all broke at the same time and are all fixable in the same way I assume that the issue is with Firefox rather than the add-ons themselves.

Bitwarden doesn't work in private windows normally. A screenshot of what this looks like is attached. Currently this message is sometimes displayed when I am using a normal (not private) browsing window. This can be fixed by disabling and reenabling the add-on.

uBlock Origin sometimes stops blocking ads. This can be fixed by disabling and reenabling the add-on.

Facebook containers no longer automatically detects Facebook owned domains such as facebook.com and messenger.com so when I visit one of these sites I am not in the Facebook container and so I am not logged in. I am able to manually enter the Facebook container by right clicking on the new tab button and selecting Facebook. Then the container works and I am logged in. This can be fixed by disabling and reenabling the add-on but this deletes any custom containers that I have created so isn't even a great workaround.

As well as being able to fix these issues by disabling and reenabling the add-ons individually, I can fix the issue by restarting Firefox.

The issue always seems to occur if Firefox is open long enough but I'm not sure what triggers it.

I have other add-ons, such as Tridactyl, that don't seem to be affected. Perhaps because they don't rely on what ever it is that is causing this issue.

I have a laptop with two cameras and 3 sound inputs. On websites that use webrtc (eg. meet.google.com), a permission dialog pops up to allow or deny access to a microphone and camera.

Those permission dialogs have a drop-down, but the drop-down has only one choice. Rebooting re-organizes which camera or microphone is in the drop-down list. Probably because of USB wakeup.

So to choose which camera to use I have to reboot and hope the right one is in the drop-down.

My cable modem presents a web interface on 192.168.100.1.

If I'm having internet connection issues, I go to http://192.168.100.1 to look at the log and see what's going on.

If the modem is not responding, Firefox pulls a stupid and checks https://192.168.100.1.

The problem is that it changes the URL bar, so now I can't hit F5 or anything; nor can I just edit out the "s" because of the URL bar autocompleter's habit of changing what you typed as soon as you press enter; I have to delete the entire URL and re-enter http://192.168.100.1.

How do I disable the silly "try HTTPS instead" feature when I explicitly typed "http://"?
