When clicking on a custom shortcut for Private Browsing window, Firefox opens a regular window next to it

Hello! I am using Firefox ESR in Linux Mint 18.3 32-bit. For convenience, a few years ago I've created a start menu (main menu) shortcut to quickly open a Private Browsing window. Before the recent switch from ESR branch 78 to 91 this shortcut was working as intended, but now, it opens a Private Browsing window and a regular browsing window. Here, I've made a short video about this issue that should help to better explain everything https://youtu.be/ccioyh0gJxA https://youtu.be/ccioyh0gJxA To some, this might seem like a non-issue, but I'd like to have a shortcut that would allow me to launch a Private Browsing window and a Private Browsing window alone.

First of all , Hello  :) FF is a great wb and i use it everywhere i got a machine. Works fine everywhere .. but here on this computer. Why only on this machine ? Same distros ( linux mint 20.3 ) radeon video cards , amd family cpu's This machine is AMD FX(tm)-6300 Six-Core Processor × 6 the video card atm is AMD PITCAIRN (DRM 2.50.0, 5.4.0-94-generic, LLVM 12.0.0) though i had the same crash issue with a nVidia graphics card. Memory is Corsair and the memtest86 reports no errors. This is where i get a bit lost. Memory issues or hardware defects might explain this but where's one to begin ? Trouble is , no other application ever crashes and it's rock solid. So is FF to point a finger at or something else ? That's the objective of me submitting this report. Try to find out what's really at fault here and fix it.

The crashes happen at all times. It can also be right at starting FF and never even reaching the main window. I tried with and without the --safe-mode and it's the same that also happens.

So i submitted one of the crash reports ID: 656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

The report can be found here : https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/656264f4-7867-4c55-8b36-0637e0220114

Since there's so many i hesitate to put them all up , there's dozens since the system reinstall yesterday , i reinstalled the whole OS again yesterday to try to get rid of the bug. Any help to solve this once and for all will be highly appreciated . :) thanks for reading

Almost every time I browse with firefox in linux mint 20.2, the pages lose their opacity and become transparent. The only way I can correct it is to restart firefox. Is this a known bug, and what can I do to correct it? Thank you. Fred Broder

Firefox 97.0 (Linux version) and previous version CREATES noise in whatever audio is running.

Firefox 97 and previous version CREATES noise in whatever audio is running. Whether it is audio from Audacious, my music player, or audio from the program I am watching on Firefox. How can I stop the noise, which sounds like static from a week station on an old AM radio? Using other browser does not have this audio problem, UNLESS Firefox is running. Even if not actively using Firefox, just having it open on the desktop causes noise. Using Linux Mint 20 64bit. Audio produced by motherboard ASUS Prime B550 Plus with AMD Ryzen 9 3900X processor. Clicking on Firefox Help gets a message saying "Updates disabled by your system administrator" along with the normal text. I didn't disable updates and I am the Admin.

Firefox tab crashing always and only on Gmail and Youtube

Hi all, i have a Firefox 98.0.1 on Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon. It's been running perfect but since yesterday when i try to visit accounts.google.com to log in to Gmail or visit youtube.com the tab always crashes. The tab crashes as soon as the site is loading so i'm not even entering anything. I have Windows 10 running on the same machine, problem does not occur there. I also have Chromium on Linux, problem does not occur.

I have tried clearing cache, disabling all plugins, disabling hardware acceleration, creating new profile, refreshing Firefox, running Firefox in troubleshooting mode, completely removing Firefox including hidden files.

I yesterday had a problem with the file system or something. A black screen showed some error message, i quickly googled it, typed in something like sdfk or sfdk and it repaired something broken on the hard disk i guess...

All crash reports have the signature "_dl_relocate_object"

Can anyone help? I've submitted a crash report with the ID 1bb292d9-61e5-4af1-942d-b5bee0220318 Thanks

edit: I also ran a RAM test with memtest86, it ended with not a single error. After trying to revert to a previous system snapshot i ended up with a black screen and code lines telling me to install a kernel first and some spooky grub mode. In the end i re-installed the whole OS, now it works.

Crash when loading some tabs on VNC server host

Since the Firefox 99 update loading some pages (for example, the Gmail sign-in page) using Firefox on my Linux Mint machine, that I'm running a VNC remote desktop session on, results in a crash.

Crash report ID: bp-5dc1e89d-dc1f-40f2-9dbe-7f4380220419

I've tried running Firefox in safe-mode and the crash doesn't happen, but turning off hardware acceleration, swapping to default themes, removing all extensions, and completely removing Firefox and the .mozilla folder and then re-installing Firefox have not changed the crash behaviour in the absence of the safe-mode flag.

I would appreciate help in identifying what other paths of investigation I can take.

Good Morning, Group!

I subscribe to the IEEE.ORG newsletter.

If I click on their link, it brings up a blank page in Firefox:

https://spectrum.ieee.org/post-quantum-cryptography-nist?utm_source=techalert&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=techalert-07-14-22&mkt_tok=NzU2LUdQSC04OTkAAAGFnAJMEXFrlR7vD0yYOspzMUWdvNdvtGqNnHnbEZI2pUuVQelTwBgCQS3pKCdhLl9XSWiE7boikHvLl6N43J65wa4D-JECtQ23ME38QU_rZMG4

That same link renders correctly in Chromium Web Browser (on Linux Mint 20.3)

By truncating the link to https://spectrum.ieee.org/ Firefox brings up that parent page O.K.

This behavior is not confined to this link in particular. It has behaved this way for some weeks (months?) now, in previous newsletters.

This is not an onerous situation but, if it could be fixed, it would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

- Ralph

I am using firefox v104 on linux mint. This problem happened this evening. Every tab i open shows the same error.

I tried the solutions suggested in other similar forum posts like >safemode (tabs still crashed) >driver update (my drivers are up to date as far i can tell) >deleting cache and reinstalling firefox (tabs crash). I took a backup of my bookmarks and extensions as suggeated in another forum post. > one youtube video (https://youtu.be/F9VaXwSB_po) suggested toggling media.cubeb.sandbox in the config section. The tabs started loading after that but it wasnt that useful as i wasnt able to get any videos to play in the browser.

Also, i don't really know if the issue is related, but chrome tabs were also not loading or responding ('Page unresponsive' error).

Please help. Thank you :)
