I recently updated my system (OpenSuse15.4) which included a Firefox update to version 109.0.

I regularly use my mic for google voice, however even though I can select my microphone in Google voice, It never shows any input.

I tested my mic in other apps and it works fine. When I pull up my systems pulse audio volume control (pavucontrol), it does not show firefox in the recording tab like it used to when using Google Voice.

To test to see if it was a Google Voice error, I also tried testing my mic at https://mictests.com/, and zoom.com, but after selecting my desired input device, mictests.com was also unable to record anything, and again, pavucontrol did not show anything being recorded.

I have attached an image of pavucontrol that shows audacity recording audio. Normally, I would also see Firefox in this window when using the mic.

I have a lot of extensions, and each time I get to a new device, I have to configure again which extensions are pinned to the overflow menu and which to hide. Is there a way to automate this? I'd also be fine writing a script if I knew the location this is saved at.

I am trying to put a shortcut to a web site on the Desktop. Using the the padlock on Firefox 109.0(64 bit) puts it in a sticky note on Desktop instead of a shortcut on the Desktop.

I am running running on Fedora 37 KDE where this does not work.

Using Fedora 37 Workstation (GNOME), the shortcut is created and works.

How do I get the shortcut to work on Fedora 37 KDE?

Hi

Received following error when trying to load openai.com.

"The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to openai.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies."

This web page loads fine when connecting directly to server (using ctrl+shift+r).

Already cleared web cache, individual cookies for the web site, history-but error remains!

Thanks Ravi

Please add an option to disable saving images as webP. This is useless. If this is not going to get addressed in the next update I will, among many others uninstall Firefox and use a different browser.

WebP is a garbage format. Maybe it's not, maybe it's great, but it still is not widely supported yet. So pull your heads out of your *** and fix this sh**.

Thanks

Dear,

I need to recover my Mozilla (Firefox) account on my computer after this latter crashed. Unfortunately, apparently I don't have the good password. Probably I used an automatically generated password which I don't remember.

I still have my account connected on my Android smartphone, but I can't access the account details (no way to recover my password or change through this device?!), and I can't export my bookmarks. Also, apparently all my identifiers and passwords were not synced on my smartphone :-( Hence somewhere all my precious information are available, but stupidly enough I can't access it anymore and resetting the password warns me that I might (is it even a certainty or a possibility?) lose everything. It seems that I cannot even produce a revovery key (to reset pwd without losing data as mentioned in the Help pages) as I can't connect on a desktop browser anymore (but well on my Android version). I am lost and just stupidly blocked - this is SO frustrating, I initially thought it would be a good idea to put everything in Mozilla - well...

Is there ANY way to actually recover my account without losing data on my desktop Firefox, given I still have access to the email account associated to the Mozilla account (and to the original emails from the creation of my accounts) and I still have access to my Firefox account on the Android app but this one doesn't seem to allow to do anything interesting in my case??

Thanks a lot!

When I click a link on page, or an app tries to open a tab (eg to print an ebay invoice), it opens and immediately closes the first time, but stays open the second time. It's really annoying.

In troubleshoot mode, it doesn't happen.

I am using FF109.0 and Linux Mint - 001-1.0 fresh install on new HD.

I had the same problem last year after I upgraded FF but did fix it eventually (can't remember how) Thanks

Hi, I am trying to create a new account on a website with standard email, password, and retype password fields. I have checked the Suggest and generate strong passwords box, yet Firefox (v109.0 on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) is not suggesting a password. I have tried left clicking and right clicking on both password and retype password fields to no avail. Help?

Internet websites can be rather heavy these days (like mega.nz or reddit, especially with multiple tabs), and they often take all memory (I think this is about RAM, of which my Macbook Air has only 4 GB, while running Kubuntu 22.10). Firefox very often freezes because of this, and my Linux system gets frozen too, completely unresponsive, with reboot as the only solution...

The problem that I want to solve is not the freezing as such, because that is not Firefox' fault, but that of the websites vs my RAM.

But I have noticed that while Firefox freezes along with the system, Opera, for example, when stumbling into the same problem, simply crashes, and the operating system is not affected.

Is there some setting/tweak in Firefox that makes it keep trying to run when out of memory and thus freeze the system instead of just close, like Opera does?

I understand that the following is necessary as described in the FAQ. I lost my two-step authentication device, can’t find my backup authentication codes and don’t have a logged-in device. Can I request to delete my Firefox Account?

Is it possible to remove the backup account related to such a locked-out account to allow that account to be associated with the new account created?

Note that the Authy locked account has been abandoned on Firefox for a long time. Not certain if there is a limit time-frame of no account access after which the account may be declared abandoned and may therefore have the backup account unlocked for a new account association to the backup account.
