I have a problem with running Firefox v95.0.1 on Ubuntu 20.04 operating system. When I first open Firefox, process with command /usr/lib/firefox/firefox -new-window starts and taking up 100% CPU. This process doesn't stop even if after closing Firefox and after a while crash reporters says that Firefox is crashed. While the browser is open and the mentioned process is running, I can't open any web page, since it's loading infinitely. I attached here screenshots of both process details and crash reporter.

When a push notification is received, the display turns on (via DPMS). Is it possible to get rid of this behavior? Is there some configuration option in Firefox in about:config? I can't exclude that it's not Firefox doing this, but I'm guessing it is.

A few days ago there was a Firefox update and this morning suddenly GeckoMain started (out of nowhere) using the CPU at 80% (which lead to the CPU fan going nuts). I opened the gnome system monitor and it showed that GeckoMain was overusing the CPU. There's also a process running called "Privileged Content". For as long as this additional process is running, Firefox is behaving as if there were no internet access - infinite time to load any page and if left undisturbed, after a while Firefox closes with a crash message. Also, for as long as this problem is happening, simply closing Firefox with the X button doesn't close it - GeckoMain is still running and the only way to actually close the browser is "killall GeckoMain". So I removed all extensions one by one in order to make sure it's not an extension causing this. It's not. Even after removing all extensions the problem continued which lead me to believe something in my prefs.js is causing it. There were so many things modified in about:config over the years that I have no idea which one might be causing the problem. I have uploaded the prefs.js file here, so that you can review it, if needed: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1j-EAaeBrcawRfzrIr4n9Pg6IyvM9zROV/view?usp=sharing

At the moment I'm writing this question through Waterfox bc Firefox is unuseable with this problem.

When typing, for example an email in office 365 webmail, approx 1 in 10 characters is missed. This happens in every session and after reboots. It doesn't seem to matter if i am typing slowly or quickly, and it happens in an incognito browser window too. I am certain that key-presses are being sent, they are just not reflected reliably in the browser. There are more than enough resources available for firefox.

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?

Edits can cause restart at top of large lists

When copying data from a site which contains a long list (= one requiring scrolling down), any list item which references a large jpg file causes the site to reset to its top when editing of that file is completed.

Firefox should have an option which holds a long-list file at the item most recently edited or copied. It is bothersome and unnecessary to keep scrolling down a long list every time a complex copy or edit is performed.

Example: https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Charaxes is a typical long list. See the figure for Charaxes boueti, for an example of a figure which, when copied as a jpg, causes the list to reset to its top.

If an edit option is not added, at least ALL edits of a long list should keep the edit location displayed. Currently, this holds only for editing of simple images, not complex, multi-item images requiring jpg formatting.

Hello,

I am deploying Firefox to Windows 10 devices using Mozilla's latest template and I want to enable HTTPS-Only mode under "Privacy & Security" when I deploy Firefox using Intune. I have gone through all the options available here, but I did not find such an option.

Firefox is deployed and it takes other customization and settings changes I make. Which means my admx file is working fine.

If the option to enable HTTPS-Only mode via Intune using admx is not yet possible, I would like to know if there is a way to deploy HTTPS-Everywhere with the option "Encrypt All Sites Eligible" ON.

Thanks.

Firefox version: 95.0.1 x64 on Linux Mint 19.1, running in safe-mode

As title says, the 'Mobile Bookmarks' folder synced from a Firefox Android aren't saved when exporting the bookmarks to an HTML file. They ARE saved during 'Backup to a JSON' but HTML with 20,000 bookmarks is much easier to edit than a JSON (unless anyone has a handy and quick JSON editor recommendation?).

So bug, or notbug?

I downloaded Firefox on my Chromebook using the instructions found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos However, I have not been able to update it since. It says updates are disabled in Firefox itself, and I have not been able to fine what files I need to update via Terminal to get the most current version. (I have been able to update other files through Terminal). Can someone please point me in the direction of how to update Firefox if installed in the manner described in the link?

Firefox on my Win 10 desktop seems to be saving logins just fine, but Firefox on my linux laptop isn't. Instead of saving the logins I've actually used (manually) to log into a website, it offers me instead the next time I attempt to log into the website a list of some user IDs I've never used on that website. Why is that?! Anybody have any idea why, where saving logins is concerned, my Windows Firefox is working fine, but my linux Firefox is not? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

hi, it has been 2 days since firefox starts to behave in an unusual way. when opening many tabs, and if i dont click on them (ie inactive) in 2-3 minutes, they go blank. when i click on an inactive tab, firefox quickly refreshes it and shows the page. example: let's say i have 3 open tabs: tab1, tab2, tab3. i am reading in tab3 for 15mins. in that period, i didnt click on tab2/1. if now i click on tab2, it is blank and no longer displays the content of the page it is supposed to show. then, firefox quickly refreshes the page and displays the true page.

not really sure why this is happening now. never happened before. it is a really annoying behavior as every tab had to be refreshed automatically if i dont click on it in very few minutes. firefox 96.0 ubuntu 18.04. thanks
