How to build browser and locale packages for Ubuntu/Debian

Since Ubuntu Mozilla Daily ppa is no longer regularly updated (see https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-mozilla-daily/+archive/ppa ), I want to build my own self-signed Firefox packages similar to the ones created by Ubuntu Mozilla Daily; but I can't find anywhere the way they are built.

Actually I successfully compile Firefox, so I need just the necessary informations in order to build a deb package with it.

Thank you

Does the Network Monitoring component of the Firefox Developer Tools have a way to preserve its log upon navigation (which would otherwise be cleared), similar to the Chrome or Safari Developer Tools "Preserve log upon navigation" button?

I've tried checking the "Enable persistent logs" option for the Web Console in settings, but it does not appear to affect the Network Monitoring tab. I also didn't see any bugs filed for it, so I just wanted to make sure I wasn't overlooking something obvious.

Thanks, Kevin

Firefox on multiple versions (tested 21 and 26 at least) has an important lag when using menus and right-clicks. When using a 32 bits version, this lag does not exist. Only when using the 64 bits version does the symptom appear. This is running on Ubuntu 10 64 bits. I don't even know where to look for, the problem appears also in Safe Mode, but does not seem to leave any trace. Thanks for pointers to solutions or educational posts, or troubleshooting tips.

I am running Firefox on Linux Mint 13 Maya. For some reason many of the buttons in Firefox (not on webpages but in FireFox itself) do not respond to mouse clicks. I have tried Safemode, refresh/restore and uninstall/reboot/reinstall. Still the same problem. I have a hard time accessing settings because the menu button is one of those that "depresses" but does not respond to any mouse clicks. Also I can not activate or deactivate plugins because of the same problem.

If we were using a self-signed certificate we could add an exception. But we use a DigiCert wildcard certificate. Our sites use a very restricted DNS with maybe a dozen URLs for which a name resolves to an IP. When Firefox is used to access our sites over HTTPS it is slow and often fails to load bu serving up error messages on the security of the site. I believe this is because it is looking to verify the certificate or revocation. We do not have this issue using HTTP. I have disabled "Query OCSP" but it has not helped.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Vertical colored bars on left side of window?

Arch Linux, 64-bit

Radeon HD 7750 w/ Mesa 10.6.4

Gnome 3.16.2

Firefox 40.0.2 (problem does not occur on FF 39.0.3)


Any Firefox window has a colored vertical region (20-or-so pixels wide) beginning just under the system title bar and extending down to the bottom of the FF window. The region begins as a single color(1) but then, as the viewport changes(2) this region is segmented into sub-regions of independently varying colors. Multiple windows maintain their own independent colored region.

If multiple firefox windows are opened, each has its own region. Context menus (e.g. right clicking anywhere in the FF window) also have such a region. Disabling all extensions, plugins, and themes has no effect.

(1) The colors I've observed are always fundamental (cyan, magenta, yellow, green, blue, red, gray). When the color is set or changed (described below) the color seems to be set at random - that is to say I cannot distinguish a pattern as to how

(2) Scrolling the viewport or invoking a browser modal/prompt/file dialog will cause the entire region to change to one other color. Certain (I can't nail down the rhyme or reason) block-level changes to a page will cause a sub-region to appear, horizontally aligned with said block. Page-wide changes "reset" these sub regions. Animations on the page causing color changes (such as the fading in of a modal overlay div or the slow sliding up of the Firefox address bar when entering fullscreen) will cause rapid color change during the period of animation/transition. Blurring the Firefox window or using the PrintScreen button will also reset the entire region back to one color so I'm unable to get a screengrab of varying subregions.


Is this a problem with Firefox? Where should I file a bug report? Mozilla? Gnome? X? Mesa?

Hi everybody,

I just updated my Ubuntu Gnome and hence also Firefox to version 41.0. Now I cannot hear any sounds played via HTML5. Videos are played just fine, however.

I have already tried resetting Firefox, creating a new profile and even going back to 37 via apt-get install firefox=37.0+build2-0ubuntu1

None of this helped at all.

Because sound doesn't even work under 37.0 I do assume that the problem is rooted in some system update, but I still post this here and not the Ubuntu forums because this problem persists ONLY in Firefox playing HTML5 files (as far as I know). As soon as I force YouTube, for example, to use Flash everything is fine (except that it is using flash :D).

As I am not that confident with Linux yet I am not quite sure how to fix this. I don't even know how to best post some sort of debug-log or list of updated programs/files that came with the Ubuntu update. So any help is appreciated!

Thanks in advance :)

Hello All,

Running Firefox 31.8.0 for OpenSUSE 11.4 (*which is the highest version available for my OS)

A few months back I had updated Firefox (*I installed a patch that was available this morning to go to version 31.8), but I can't remember from what version to what version, or if that was even the root cause of the issue when I updated it sometime in 2015. But, ever since that I have been having issues adding a "Permanent" Exception for any of our Internal https sites/servers that have an expired certificate.

So for example, I go to this one server https://55.55.55.55/ and when I do, I get a warning that: "This Connection is Untrusted You have asked Firefox to connect securely to 55.55.55.55:8443, but we can't confirm that your connection is secure...."

So I click "Add Exception" and then in the Pop-up I leave "Permanently store this exception" checkbox checked, and I click "Confirm Security Exception" and when I do nothing happens at all... If I were to then uncheck the "Permanently store this exception" checkbox and click on "Confirm Security Exception" again, this time it works. But, it's only storing a temporary exception, the permanent checkbox used to work at some point a while back but now its not...

However, if I re-open Firefox and choose my secondary profile called "temp" and load that instead of my regular profile "default", and I naviagte to the same page and Confirm Security Exception with the Permanent checkbox checked, it works perfectly.

Is there something wrong with my Profile? I have some much under this Profile I really don't want to loose it.

If anyone has any thoughts or suggestions, please feel free to respond. It would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in Advance, Matt
