Re-order extensions' access to page URL

This is pretty much a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1334684 : I have the uBlock Origin and Skip Redirect extensions installed, both work by checking/modifying the URL of the site I am trying to visit.

Unfortunately, I am running into some sites that are re-directed via some tracking URLs. Here's one example I had today:

Original URL: https://sslh62px.r.us-east-2.awstrack.me/L0/https:%2F%2Fwww.allaboutcircuits.com%2Ftechnical-articles%2Fanalyzing-dc-and-steady-state-ac-circuits-with-python%2F/2/010f01832042551a-ed0a0774-ca39-4cd9-825e-a375504c6ea5-000000/c7T-m43jFRD5B3k49nHcvIOhCtM=71

As you can see, the destination URL is embedded within the tracker URL and as such, is exactly what Skip Redirect was designed to deal with. Unfortunately, uBlock Origin seems to look at the URL before Skip Redirect does and blocks it outright because it is a known tracker (awstrack.me).

If I could tell Firefox to let Skip Redirect modify the URL first (to https://www.allaboutcircuits.com/technical-articles/analyzing-dc-and-steady-state-ac-circuits-with-python/ ), uBlock Origin didn't need to block access to it.

Is there a way to change the order in which extensions are applied (i.e. get to run) when a URL is opened?

When watching something on Youtube and I click on the coloured download icon, I get to be able to click on the title of the video. A blue 1 appears in the download icon. When I click again, then click on the blue 1 to watch the download. Nothing happens. The window just sits there and states 'downloading', but it does not happen. This happened last year and you managed to fix it; now Youtube seem to have blocked downloading again. Geoffrey D Dean, Australia.

Today I tried to place an online order to pickup from Texas Roadhouse, but no matter what time I chose a message said it was not available. The only selection that worked was "Earliest Available Time". Finally I called to place an order. Firefox worked 2 months ago but I don't recall which version I was using at the time.

Today I was using FF vers 97.x and later updated to vers 99.0.1 figuring that might be the problem, but it made no difference.

Later I tried Windows 10 Edge & that worked. Then tried a Chromebook & that also worked.

I've also had problems going to the Tracfone website & so have several other people. It's hit or miss with Firefox & usually it doesn't work. But Chrome or Edge seem to work for everyone.

Is this a website problem or a FF problem?

Greetings... I would like to increase the font size in right click menu box in FF 89.0 (64-bit) (see attached png)

I found a similar 2018 query here at: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1241117#answer-1174375

and based on that exchange I added the following to userChrome.css file

/* FONT SIZE IN RIGHT CLICK MENU BOXES 5/1/22 */

  1. mainPopupSet menuitem,
  2. mainPopupSet menu { font-size: 16pt !important; }

/* */

I closed and reopened FF. This change has no effect on the menu font no matter what font-size value I enter. Have I done something wrong?

Good day,

Really happy to see that mozilla is tightening up security. But unfortunately, I can't enroll into Two-Step Authentication everytime I enter code it's not being accepted. I tried multiple android apps of those codes and non of them work for me.

Because of that, I lost access to addons.mozilla.com account, because system doesn't let me in without 2step auth enabled.

Any chance I can use yubikey's intead of those auth apps? or anything else I can do?

Just updated to the latest firefox version 119, and noticed that the url links are now all underlined again. Checked the support page that says it can be undone in settings, but when I opened up to the said setting page, there's no option to uncheck underline links. Where else can underline links be disabled?

I want to change background color in Firefox from white to gray (because my eyes get tired of white)

I try to change it this way: Preferences -> Language and appearance -> Font -> Colors

But it does not work as expected on some complex web sites. All I want to do is to darken the background, but not to change color of other elenments (links, text, scrollbars).

Can I do it in Firefox ? How [Preferences -> Language and appearance -> Font -> Colors] works in Firefox? Perhaps, there is some "override css" for the entire browser?

Hello. I noticed that Firefox (98.0.2) doesn't even ask if the file should be saved or opened with a program when downloading some file types. Unfortunately, these file types (e.g. GPX) are not listed under Settings --> General --> Files and Applications, so that I could assign them to a program or specify that they should always be asked. And I can't add these files somehow... I have also deleted the file "handler.json" in the profile folder, hoping to be asked then. But that doesn't happen. GPX files, for example, are assigned to the GSAK program in the system - but Firefox just wants to save them and doesn't offer the option to open them directly in GSAK. Does anyone know advice how I can get Firefox to give me the choice? Thanks a lot.

Possible IPC memory leak - how to pinpoint the culprit?

Hey there, I'm having trouble with Firefox. Something inside Firefox is eating up my RAM and CPU. Usually I recognize the problem happening because my laptop fans ramp up. The problem occurs on my laptop as well on my desktop (both on latest stable Firefox[Build ID: 20220513165813] and Windows 11). The workaround is to kill the Firefox subprocess which is using most of the CPU and RAM. Then everything is back to normal for some time, until Firefox starts messing with me again.

While trying to pinpoint the problem I'm stuck. I can't find a culprit other than the fact it has something to do with Firefox. Clean reinstalling did not help. The Firefox Task Manager doesn't know anything about huge amounts of RAM being taken. I searched for solutions on the net and the about:memory indicates the problem is some IPC related stuff:

 {
  "process": "Main Process (pid 12648)",
  "path": "queued-ipc-messages/content-parent(Browser, pid=9612, open channel, 0x22e4b33fc30, refcnt=38)",
  "kind": 2,
  "units": 1,
  "amount": 0,
  "description": "The number of unset IPC messages held in this ContentParent's channel.  A large value here might indicate that we're leaking messages.  Similarly, a ContentParent object for a process that's no longer running could indicate that we're leaking ContentParents."
 }

The bug reporting guidelines(https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/page.cgi?id=bug-writing.html) are encouraging me to attach steps to reproduce and try the steps listed on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-uses-too-much-memory-or-cpu-resources . But I've exhausted the steps there (Except for upgrading the PC / RAM).

Especially on the go this Firefox-RAM-Party takes quite some battery and right now while writing this Firefox has >100GB virtual RAM reserved for some IPC messages, I personally think this is too much. So I'd like to file a report, but without steps to reproduce I'm afraid the developers are going to say 'well, that's something we are not able to diagnose', because I am unable to explain how to reproduce it. It just happens from time to time.

The anonymized about:memory report: https://bin.disroot.org/?2ba01ef78154cce4#8PLVqLTd9qgaRn2QVX2P17hkbHQyrTDuVAwoykj2cBxg

I left Firefox running like this for about half an hour and at 138GB reserved RAM Windows slaughtered my Firefox. The resulting crash report: https://bin.disroot.org/?0bc57492585dde4b#5YtbWgXcbZSkWYmg2CGkVn9iiipYwfYbxUfCLhmMJh7d

Do you have a clue where I might find out who sends those IPC messages, and therefore who is responsible for this?

with Firefox there is a long delay (~5min.). This happens with multiple machines and locations (w/ Windows 10p and Windows 11p). This started a few weeks ago, I'm wondering if an update is to blame.

It all works fine with Microsoft Edge.
