Hello,

Sorry to contact you again but my problem is still not solved and it's urgent.

I still doesn't have turned my computer off in case that you could help me find my pages back. I have no one else to help me with this problem and I deeply need the websites I was surfing on. I'm not sure I can find them by myself and I don't have much time for that.

Thank you for helping me and answering my request.

I am running Firefox 119.0 on Linux and am unable to stream video on many sites. I have tested a few sites, and the only site that actually works for streaming video is YouTube. The others either say 'Source Error' or just load forever.

Things I have tried:

  • Accepting cookies (via site exception)
  • Turned off Enhanced Tracking Protection for the site that won't stream video
  • Turned off pop-up blocker
  • Enabled auto-play of video and audio on the site
  • Checked for updates of Firefox (but there are none available)
  • Launched Firefox in Troubleshooting mode with all extensions and customizations disabled, but this makes no difference

At this point, after doing some online research and trying everything I can think of, I'm really out of ideas.

I would appreciate any suggestions or information anybody has.

Thank you

I use synching between phone and desktop. I deleted some bookmarks on my phone and synced phone and desktop Firefox. I would expect that the deleted bookmarks also disappear on my desktop FF under "Mobile Bookmarks", but nothing changes. Worse than that, after I added one more bookmark on my phone and synced, the deleted bookmarks showed up again on my phone. It seems the not deleted bookmarks on desktop are transferred again to my phone. This is actually not what I want...

Highlighting with the mouse is full of glitches. It never works right. It either stops highlighting or highlights opposite the direction I'm moving the mouse.

I need to summarize a recent medical encounter; the hospital's 234 pages are out of temporal order and have many repeats. I want to put it in time order and delete the repeats. It's a PDF, and since I can't use Acrobat anymore, I read PDFs in Firefox.

Not once have I been able to mark a section of text properly. There seem to be some forbidden areas: I highlight what I can, transfer it, then go back for the rest, but it won't highlight.

Ctl-A highlights it. I often do that and delete the excess, but that's inconvenient.

I can open the same file in xpdf and mark without trouble, but I don't like xpdf.

For this doc, I converted the PDF to text with pdf2text, but it's harder to read. I identify target text in Firefox, then find it in the text version, use emacs to copy from the original to my summary.

I've tried a fresh battery in the mouse. Every other app works.

I have a Firefox account in order to use the sync capabilities. After a sync between desktop and phone the desktop bookmarks are on my phone in an extra folder "desktop bookmarks" and vice versa the phone bookmarks are in folder "Mobile bookmarks" in my desktop Firefox. Is this normal behaviour? I would expect them in one common folder to have a seamless synching.

Best regards, Walter

I usually have firefox running. Sometimes I want to display a file on my computer in firefox. Until today (don't know what happened today) I could; firefox would add a new tab for display of that file. Now it gives me an error, reports, 'Firefox is already running, but not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile'. This is inconvenient.

I have a System 76 laptop running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The LTS (Long Term Support) ended years ago with Firefox 66. All of that works fine still. My problem is: 1. The world is telling me to upgrade my browser. 2. Mozilla tells me "Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository. This article only applies if you installed Firefox manually (without using your distribution's package manager)." 3. There will never be an updated package because LTS has ended. 4. IS THERE A WAY TO MANUALLY INSTALL A NEWER BROWSER LIKE FIREFOX 123?

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.

I just reinstalled my operative system, and with that my Firefox settings got reset. I know there is an entry in about:config to prevent ads from opening new tabs and pop ups without authorization, even from legit websites like the login pop-up windows when doing a sign in in Google, in those cases to allow the windows it's needed to click on the lock icon next to the URL bar and allow it from there. The problem is that I don't remember the name of that setting and I have spend an hour looking for it on Google.

Does anyone know how to configure Firefox to stop the annoying google log-in pop-up? I've seen others ask the same question, but I have not seen any functional answers.

Hello,

I've spent several hours today trying to fix FireFox slow start up on my system. After start up (about 2 full minutes), everything works normally. The hardware is an ASUS A88xm-A MB, A10-6800K processor, 16G DDR3, runs OS and programs off an SSD. I worked through all the slow startup suggestions, ran memtest (0 Errors, 1 Pass), disabled all add ons, (even the OpenH264 video codec (I use the onboard HDMI, no graphics card)), turned off hardware acceleration, etc. When starting in troubleshoot mode, less than 30 seconds, (acceptable), but I really don't know where to begin with the "More Troubleshooting Information" when I look at the table generated by it. There have been no other problems to date with the system, and the long start-up time began with 20.04 Ubuntu (about a minute), then got worse when I upgraded to 22.04 to try to solve THAT problem. Currently running FF 104.0, and the update page says wait for a distro update if that is how it was installed. I believe 104.0 is the latest Linux 64b version though. All updates to the system are done as soon as I'm notified of them. there have been none since the upgrade a few days ago.

Any suggestions? Gotta get some sleep now... TIA, Dave

I upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04 recently. Since then Firefox 104.0.2 (64-bit) has been arbitrarily freezing; sometimes i have to restart the computer while most of the times I am able to kill the Firefox main process and restart Firefox.

The freeze occurs when i try to save a Web page; i don't see any "logic" as to which Web pages cause Firefox to freeze. It seems totally arbitrary.

I clear my downloads list everyday (sometimes more frequently than that) and clear cookies & cache everyday.

I have selected "no proxy" by default, in 'Connection Settings'.

This never happened until after i upgraded to Ubuntu 22.04.

I've browsed the support pages and don't find anything relevant to my problem. If I'm overlooking something, I apologize in advance!

I have attached a 'screen capture' image of Firefox processes just before i killed the main process.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions. Ramki

I'm running Firefox 99.0.1 on Ubuntu 22.04. Recently (I think since I updated to Ubuntu 22.04 about a week ago), Firefox has been refusing to show me file upload dialogs. When I click a button that's supposed to give me one, nothing happens.

This has been happening with: - The "attach files" button in Gmail - A file upload button on Gradescope (website for managing homework assignments) - File -> Open File... and Ctrl+O.

Dragging and dropping a file onto an email in Gmail does attach the file -- it's just that the button doesn't work.

I've tried restarting, and I've tried running Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode -- so far nothing has fixed the problem. What else should I do?
