I often run into issues with PDFs in Firefox Linux. They either appear totally blank (typically after suspend/restore), or they appear with the desktop background showing through (as in the attached screenshot).

Hard refreshing the page doesn't change anything, opening a new tab and opening the PDF again doesn't change anything, opening a new window and loading the PDF doesn't change anything.

The screenshot is with this PDF: https://www.sgsw.ch/home/strom/_jcr_content/Par/sgsw_accordion_list_1838160259/AccordionListPar/sgsw_accordion_12353/AccordionPar/sgsw_downloadlist/DownloadListPar/sgsw_download_1049323524.ocFile/2023-08-31%20Mitteilung%20Elcom%20Erh%C3%B6hung%20Elektrizit%C3%A4tspreise%20f%C3%BCr%20das%20Jahr%202024.pdf

It renders correctly in Chromium.

The "Triage Manager" for Mozilla Refuses to assign anyone to a seven year old open problem

I need to go over the head of the Mozilla Triage manager who has left https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1406865 open without a resolution for **seven years**. How do I do that? This is a bug reported in Firefox 57 and **still** not fixed in Firefox 125. I cannot find any support category anywhere in the Mozilla website that covers appealing a decision by one of their employees. The last comment from this uncooperative indivisual is "But given we support it on macOS and Windows yeah, it seems not very objectionable." Who is this **clerk** to override the fact that a number of customers very much find this "objectionable". I cannot find anything on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contact/ that addresses this issue. I cannot find even a surface mail address for Mozilla. For example my complaint has nothing to do with any of the following:

   I’m having problems with using Firefox
   I want to donate to Mozilla
   I have questions about using Mozilla’s trademarks
   I’d like to report misuse of a Mozilla trademark
   I want to hold an event in a Mozilla space
   I want Mozilla to sponsor my event
   I’d like permission to use a Mozilla logo
   I’m interested in Pocket’s sponsored content on Firefox
   I’m a member of the Press and have a question for Mozilla

Yes I am having a problem with Firefox, but the clerk responsible has, through sitting on this issue for **seven years**, basically told the entire community that he doesn't give a reservoir.

In particular I feel this unacceptable behaviour should be brought to the attention of senior management, but there are no contacts for anybody in senior management.

When composing emails in Gmail holding down a (any) key does not activate key repeating.

Also, the there are irregularities when using discover.com in Ver. 124. When editing my customer profile, keystrokes are not recognized. Nothing happens when typing. I also had difficulty signing-in; this may be coincidental.

Things tried: (1) A different keyboard. Same results. (2) Firefox version 122. The key repeat function worked in Gmail. I could edit my profile at discover.com. (3) Uninstalled and reinstalled ver. 124. All problems persisted. (4) Ran Ver. 124 in troubleshooting mode. All problems persisted. (5) Launched newly downloaded versions of both 122 and 124 (from command line) and ran them simultaneously. The problems persisted in 124 (troubleshooting mode), but 122 worked well. I used two different keyboards with no difference noticed. (6) Downloaded and ran Chromium. All worked well.

I just updated Firefox. That's supposed to improve things, right?

Now the address bar is gray most of the time. It looks normal when I'm entering a search, or editing a URL, the rest of the time, it's just ugly now. I don't like things to be changed arbitrarily like that. What is the rationale for changing the way that looks? How can I change it back? Please give me a setting, or about:config preference, and please don't get direct file editing involved, okay?

Why doesn't tiling the windows work as well as it used to? Yesterday, I could hit super+left, or super+right, from a maximized window, and it'd tile to the left or right side of the screen perfectly, the first time, every time, no problems. Now it has an intermediate stage where there's a gap all the way around the window. It seems to improve by clicking on a different window, then back into the Firefox window, but that intermediate step just shouldn't happen! What's a fix for this?

I also hit the button at the bottom to include optional troubleshooting information, but it said instead, "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps." No, I'm not doing that, get that thing working right, too!

https:\\archive.org works perfectly in Firefox on Win-10, but on a new Linux Mint install, (with default Firefox as included), this particular website simply displays as a blank white screen. Every other website I try on the Linux install works perfectly; it is only this one website which does not work.

There are no add-ons, no proxies, no security suites, nothing extra. I cleared all cookies and cache. Tried running FF in Protected Mode. Nothing seems to fix it.  There are no error messages displayed - just a blank white screen.

And, to make it worse, I am not particularly computer-literate, (I'm 82 years old...), so you will have to give me simple guidance if I need to get involved with deeper logging etc.

When you add a new bookmark to a folder it's added at the end of the existing list.

Is there a way to make Firefox add it at the top of the list, instead?

I found an old answer, but, sadly, the extension granting my wish is no longer.

Also, I already know about sorting, but it's not what I need, because I'm doing a lot of manual bookmarks reordering and sorting will nullify it.

Thank you :)

I have followed the troubleshooting suggestions with no avail. I am currently in troubleshooting mode with all add-ons disabled. The problem persists. The only way to handle the problem is to depress the scroll wheel on the mouse and start scrolling. However, the problem returns with the next page. The problem shows up on Windows 10 as well as Debian bullseye.

I have used Firefox and Firefox-esr for years on the same platforms. This problem started about six months ago with no resolution. So what has changed? On Win 10 Firefox keeps getting updates whereas Firefox-esr never gets updates. The problem persists on both platforms. More than one mouse has been used with the same results. I have removed Firefox and Firefox-esr and re loaded them, no joy here either.

Firefox can take screenshots of pages or screenshots of custom areas of pages.

According to the documentation, when we download the image, the filename should follow the pattern: Screen Shot yyy-mm-dd at hh.mm.ss.png. If I use the :screenshot at the console, the pattern works as documented.

But Firefox is using a different pattern when I choose Take Screenshot from the context menu. The pattern includes the page's title. Example: Screenshot 2024-04-14 at 18-35-16 General ‹ Settings ‹ Geomaster Lda — WordPress.png.

Since the page title can have non common filename characters, I have problems with such filenames. My uploads to MediaWiki fails with such filenames. I know I can report or improve MediaWiki, but my question here is quite simple.

Can I change the Firefox's default pattern for Take Screenshot's downloads?

Hello Good People,

I installed Firefox a few days ago and it was looking good. I don't like that icon in the top-left hand so I right clicked it and removed it. All was good. However, today there is a blank black space in the corner as if the icon was back (but without an actual icon). It's only a small thing but it bugs me. I want the tabs to be shifted all the way over to the left like they have been up to today. It's triggering my OCD. Anyway, any advice appreciated.

Firefox takes about 5 minutes to load every it launches, before working smoothly like it should. This problem occured first time yesterday morning, and I have no idea what could have caused it.

It happens :

  • when I launch firefox normally (whatever the profile)
  • when I launch it from the terminal (it provides no output at all)
  • when I tell it to launch the Profile Manager (5 minutes to see the Profile Manager appear, then 5 more minutes to launch firefox using the selected profile)

It does not happen :

  • when I click "New Window" inside an existing firefox process
  • when I call `firefox --help` from the terminal

Here's what I've tried :

  • First, I've seen pretty much every article from Mozilla Support, Reddit or SuperUser (writing this question is kind of my last resort)
  • I've tried removing and then reinstalling Firefox from Flatpak, from the Fedora repos (using `sudo dnf install firefox`) and using the manual install via the archive (v125)
  • I've tried downgrading firefox (when using the package manager install) from v125 to v124
  • I've also tried the Firefox Developer Edition, same problem here
  • I've tried using the "Refresh Firefox" feature and restarting in Troubleshoot Mode (both are also affected by the slow startup, which makes them particularly painful to execute)
  • I've tried manually deleting the `~/.mozilla/` folder (= manually deleting my profiles)

When firefox launches, it does not freezes my OS and does not seem to use many system ressources : CPU usage is normal, RAM as well, and it does not seem to read many things from the disk as well (I've seen some threads where this was the issue).

And here is something interesting that I discovered :

  • loading (including refreshing) `about:profiles` is also slow and this time freezes firefox (OS reports it as not responding, I can't switch tabs and I can't see my mouse). Other about pages seem to work fine (although I did not try them all)

Thanks !

PS : Even if I think it has nothing to do with the issue, I prefer to mention it here : I was messing with virtual machines yesterday when the issue occured for the first time. My disk got full at some point and I don't know but it might have messed with firefox. At this stage, I had not deleted any files that could relate somehow to Firefox, that's why I doubt it would have caused anything harmful to Firefox. (instead, I mounted an empty partition from my disk to get some space)
