From my research it looks this is supposed to work with Ubuntu as well? It is not working for me, is this possible?

Hello

I've been using linux for 3 years now but never before fedora, i just installed Fedora 34 KDE and im having issues ive never had before, im wondering why and what i can do about it.

for example, ctrl+c seems not to be working. i have to look up a lot of guides and copy a lot of commands from websites using firefox and i want to paste them in the terminal but its finnicky, often doesnt, i cant quite get a hang of when it does and why sometimes it refuses.

another issue is ctrl+w works to close tabs but ctrl+f4 doesnt, but alt+f4 does work. what the hell?

I am dealing with a government website. All of the government forms are available as PDFs on this website. However if I try to download a form the site looks at the browser description and does not see Adobe Acrobat installed on my system, so it returns a text document telling me to install Adobe Acrobat release 8 or higher. I cannot install Adobe Acrobat because Adobe does not support Linux. I don't need to install Adobe because Firefox, Chrome, and every other browser on the market has builtin support for PDF. How do I customize Firefox to LIE to the website and say that Adobe Acrobat is installed?

In Google Chrome, if you fill in the first letters of a website you want to visit, the browser will autocomplete the name and give you the option to press the tab key and search that website. Why doesn't FF have this function?

I know there is a system with keywords, but this is less efficient I think. You have to set up the keyword and then remember it. I don't think the keyword system itself is bad, but I don't see why there couldn't be a 'tab to search' function with all possible websites, in addition to the keywords system.

In short, I am looking for the Firefox 68 armhf deb? package installation file for Raspberry Pi OS (Raspbian) 10.

---

I use Raspbian 10 (Raspberry Pi OS). I used to keep a Firefox ESR 68 on hold (apt-mark hold) on 1 of my 2 Raspberry Pi machines. I offered this machine to a friend.

Now on my only left Raspberry Pi, Firefox ESR 68 is no longer provided by apt.

But I still need Firefox 68 on it, in order to remotely debug my userscripts on Firefox for Android 68.11.0 (latest version to support add-ons like Violentmonkey, thus userscripts) through adb.

Anyone knows how to install it back? I think I need an armhf.deb file, right?

I found: http://legacy.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://archive.raspbian.org/raspbian/pool/main/f/firefox-esr/ https://github.com/jdonald/firefox-armhf/releases

But no trace of a version 68 deb file.

I then found some firefox-68.11.0esr.tar.bz2 in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/linux-x86_64/ Is x86_64 same as armhf? How do we install .tar.bz2 files in Linux?

I also see a firefox-68.11.0esr.snap in https://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/68.11.0esr/snap/ I would like to avoid installing snap but maybe I should try this instead, does it include armhf?

Hello!

I perform some translations through address bar searches, which use the URL of a translation engine (Bing/Google translate).

One thing that I couldn't solve is how to encode newlines. Sometimes, the text to translate includes newlines. When I copy/paste, the address bar flattens the text, entirely removing the newlines. For longer texts, this makes reading the translated text more difficult, because the result is a single, very long, line.

I've tried pasting "%0A" and "\n", but they are encoded.

Is there any way to encode a newline via copy/paste into the address bar search URL?

Thanks.

Moin, I activated the HTTPS-only mode as I used the "https everywhere" plugin so far.

But, in a very special network segment for radio amateurs, the 44-network (ampr.org) encryption is not allowed. So is there a way to configure the HTTPS-only mode in a way to say ".... but not for 44.0.0.0/8?

i prefer one configuration than constantly clicking the "continue to http site" button for the next few years.

I have already: Ruled out fixes for very old Firefox versions, still online. Tried every preference, library, and bookmarking tool in menu. The three dots does not provide that choice. (It is the FIRST thing I tried.) Used the terminal to sudo apt-get purge Firefox and Used terminal to sudo apt install Firefox. Repeated above procedure after signing out, to stop any starless syncing. Signed back in. I had it when this computer was new, and I then installed Firefox, less than a year ago, Ubuntu canonical 20.04. Reinstalling should have the quick-bookmark star as I had when first installed. I have not: Selected "remove data from device". Next solution that actually works?
