Firefox seems to crash repeatedly and generates no crash reports, just freezes up my pc. It works in troubleshooting mode but even after refreshing, the problem persists. Surprisingly, it will consistently crash if I go to `about:support` (except in troubleshooting mode). Any help would be appreciated!

For the last week or so, I've been getting these popup ads for Builder's Warehouse whenever I open Firefox (see screenshot attached). However, - the ads aren't "in the browser" window they're right at the top of my screen - There's no options I can find to see any information about where the ad comes from - The ad usually disappears quite fast, preventing me from investigating further I don't imagine it could be being shown by Google because it appears without me opening Google. So it kind of seems like it's probably being done by the browser. But I also struggle to believe that Firefox would be purposefully showing me such invasive advertising. So I'm guessing it's malware. But I don't know. Please help me to understand: - Where does this ad come from? - If it's malware, any ideas how to get rid of it? - If it's Firefox, and they're being shown because of a mistake on my part, how do I turn them off?

Thanks

Hi there, I have been using Firefox for over twenty years now, but the latest findings are frightening. I use openhab for my smarthome and the openhab cloud website was not rendering properly under Firefox, so I tried Chrome. The page loaded without any problems. I had this behavior on desktop, Android phone and Android tablet. Sometimes I could fix the problem by deleting the browser data, but not always. I did a lot of settings on the tablet and thought it was not responsive, but it turned out to be Firefox. With Chrome, the application responds directly on the first click. But the worst thing was that I had a conversation with Amazon using my laptop and was waiting for a response. I reloaded the page countless times with Ctrl+F5 until I tried Chrome. The response was immediate and I didn't see it until three days later. Since then I keep noticing things not loading or updating in Firefox.

I don't know what I should look for this three devices have the same bad behavior. Is there already an effort to fix this? If not, I'll have to bite the bullet and switch browsers. I don't like the idea because twenty years is a long time.

Best regards

OS - LinuxLite 6.4 fully updated as of this writing FF - 117.0

I just created a new installation of LinuxLite. Upon finding that Firefox was no longer the default browser I installed it. Apparently snapd is a pre-req and it too was installed. The installer does not automatically create a link to launch it and I have to do a search for FF. When I launch it, it seems to run fine. However when I try to restore my bookmarks from a recently created backup, which came from another system, I cannot. From bookmark manager when I select restore and then choose file, nothing happens. No popup window to select the file appears. Likewise when I try to import from an HTML file and choose file, again nothing happens. I imported the bookmarks to Chrome from the HTML file then tried to have FF import from another browser but FF says it can find NO other browser with bookmark, history or password data. Any suggestions?

The "automatic zoom" seems to regularly zoom to a level that will cut off text far down on a page.

I'm not sure how "automatic" it is as it mostly seems to be a slightly zoomed in level compared to page fit. From the name it sounds like it should detect where there is text on a page and hide some air in headers/footers. However, even in cases where it cuts off right as the text cuts off, it's often unclear if there's a following line or empty footer space following the last visible line.

As it is I'll switch to page fit for default, but it would be preferable if the out-of-the-box experience either did a better job of not cutting off right before the text ends; at that point both page fit and width fit are better default options.

The examples are from a zoning proposal in Oslo.

On Ubuntu, drag and drop has broken for me. My mouse cursor does not seem to react to different types of content, like hovering over links. My main problem is that if I highlight a piece of text, or some other content block on a page, and drag it, it does not work as smoothly as it should.

Has anyone else experienced this recently?

I find closing Firefox helps temporarily but within 10-15 minutes the same problem occurs.

I have re-installed Firefox and I am running the latest version. I haven't experienced the problem in Safe Mode.

It only occurs on Firefox and is browser-wide.

So, the problem is my volume in only fierfox became reaaaly low, idk why, then when trying to find a solution i was made aware of a volume icon, to understand that I do not have it. Then i searched for : System Preferences, Sound, Output and check "Show volume in menu bar", but i don't find system preference, nor tools, or About, or just Preferences anywhere, i am so very lost. the settings seams very limited, and i dont find anything in the toolbar. I use fierfox Version 117.0 on linux

When you download and click on a file without the program to use it installed, the KDE portal opens up, and the only option is to go to the discover store to get the required program since you dont have anything else that's usable. However, the new program does not show up in this window, and the window to choose the associated program cannot be closed.

So, to get it to go away, I chose to associate .pptx with the dolphin browser temporarily so I could choose the correct program afterwards. After going into the firefox settings (General>applications) and setting the powerpoint files to open with ONLYOFFICE, it still ignores my changes and opens up the dolphin browser every time. I set the normal linux file association to ONLYOFFICE, so clicking on the file outside of firefox opens the correct program. I tried uninstalling firefox and deleting "all" associated files through the discover store, and still had the same problem upon reinstalling. I can clearly see there are some remaining Mozilla files on my drive despite the fact I said to delete all of the associated files, but for some reason I do not have permission to delete them, no matter what I try.

When downloading and clicking a .pptx file through chromium, the correct application loads right away, so this is clearly a problem with only firefox not updating its file associations despite me repeatedly trying to do so through the system settings.

Just keep on doing what it is that you are doing.

I am rather old. I picked up Mozilla when it was on X 10. I do not have a complaint. Only dark mode. I had cataract surgeries, the plastic lenses now have cataracts too. Really! The WHITE screen is painful.

But, Firefox seems to work, and it works well. It is well organized, methodical, nothing to complain about. Yes, I am recognizing the spell checker. Yes, I am ranting. Yes, I am done!

Thank you!

"Cobrowse" on US Bank Website doesn't work, Using Firefox 117.0 (64-bit) for Ubuntu

On the US Bank website (http://www.usbank.com/), there is a "cobrowse" feature that apparently uses javascript. It doesn't work with standard settings.

Attempting to invoke it only gets a blue rectangle around the "cobrowse" link at the bottom left of the page, and displays "Javascript" in the lower left corner.

It should display a validation to allow the technician to follow and assist your actions on the site.

JavaScript is enabled.

I would like to use this feature.

There is an Add-On called Shortkeys that allows custom actions to be assigned to various standard key combinations (ctrl-A, alt-X, etc.) but this does not work for keys that emit escape code sequences.

I have a keypad that I use for motion commands, including scrolling, in my vim editor and I would like to use the same keys to scroll up/down on a loaded page in Firefox. Is there any way, including using some Add-On that would allow these keys that emit escape sequences to be assigned to page motions?

Thanks for any insights.

Issue: When trying to stream video via criterion, progress spinner spins for about a minute and then the website delivers: 'Please try again in a supported browser'. Firefox delivers: 'Firefox is installing components necessary to reproduce the audio or video in this page. Try again later.'

In plug-in manager: Widevine is not enabled, receive alert: '...this will install in a few moments'. It does not actually ever install. In settings: Play content with DRM is enabled.

OS used: UBUNTU 22.04.02 LTS 64 bit
