For years, I have had the Bookmark Toolbar always show on my initial page and all tabs at the top of page. Something happened and now it does not. I have tried resetting per instructions and it will show on my current page but then not show up my new tab and will disappear from the initial page. I tried a refresh to correct and that did not work either. I was able to get them to show on the left side of the screen but I much prefer them at the top and want to get back to that layout.

Hello, Since i updated to firefox 117 im having this isue.

I have an HTML in a local ngix server, that pulls camera feed from 2 diferent ZoneMinder servers. Super simple HTML that works OK in ver 116 (i also downgraded to test)

I couldnt find a value in about:config that re enables this.

It seems firefox is not displaying images that are located in a diferent IP Address than the main html. It displays the images correctly if the html is in the same server than the camera feed, but since i have 2 diferent image sources, i cant make it work that way.

Firefox Nightly is not displaying the images also.

any ideas? something to try?

Thanks in advance, Nicolas

I am using Firefox Nightly 119.0a1 (2023-09-04) on macOS 12.6.8 on an Intel 15' MBP.

When clicking on a link from an external app (eg. WhatsApp, Teams, etc.) with Firefox not running in the background, Firefox will open up but will not open the link. I have to go back to the app and click the link again for it to work.

This has been an issue for me for a while now and it only happens with Firefox as other browsers will work as expected.

Wrong Scaling with HiDPI Screen on Linux

Dear Technical Support,

I'd like to report a problem which affects the rendering of websites in Firefox with a HiDPI monitor.

I'm having issues with the text and graphics of web pages, that are often mismatched or misaligned, with text being too large compared to graphical elements. See the enclosed pictures for an example; as you can see, this happens also on your website. Also, I've noted that pages (and plugins) appear to be "shrinked" as opposed to when viewed on Chrome, where they are shown to their true size.

Setting ui.textScaleFactor=100 and tweaking with layout.css.devPixelsPerPx did not change much. I must admit that I find this behavior quite strange, since HiDPI monitors have been around for more than a decade, and especially considering that this did not impact my experience with Firefox on Windows, using the same monitor and machine.

I hope to find an effective solution to this problem and look forward to your reply. Please let me know if I can be of any help in this matter.

Best regards, Federico

I've read all the suggestions but can't get Firefox Sync to transfer the open tabs from my old PC to my new one. I'm signed in on both to the same account, both are on my LAN with a wired ethernet connection, and I've checked every box in the "what to sync" field. When I click "Sync Now" the icon spins for a few seconds like it's doing something but the tabs from the old machine do not appear on the new one as I expected them to. Nor can I get them by closing and doing a Restore Session.

This seems pretty straightforward and how most users would expect it to work - am I missing something? If not, why isn't it working?

A couple of weeks ago I migrated from Edge to Firefox. I exported and imported my bookmarks. All was good. Suddenly this morning, my bookmarks are inoperative. The folder structure is there, containing entries that appear to be my bookmarks. If I left-click on one, nothing happens. If I right-click on one and choose Edit Bookmark, the fields in the dialogue are all empty.

I’m having trouble moving firefox to a new computer. I copy the files, expecting to see my existing set up with bookmarks, extensions, and passwords, and I get no response, no errors, just completely fresh firefox.

Both systems are on arch linux and both running Firefox 117.0. I completely close both firefox. I copy ~/.mozilla/firefox to an ext4 thumb drive from my old computer. on the new computer, I delete the existing ~/.mozilla/firefox. I copy the files from the thumb drive to /firefox/. I restart firefox. unmodified firefox

I’ve also tried chowing the files. and also chmoding 700 and 755 (advice from old stackoverflow threads) ive tried chowing and chmoding. Each time i restart the whole process for posterity. Still no response

I’m dumbfounded as to why it’s not working, and I don’t even know where to look now

Hello!

I often log in to a service ticketing website to help my customers. Before emailing them I must reference the service ticket number somewhere in the email, but this is very difficult to do in Firefox. If I inspect the element this is what I see:

<em unselectable="on" style="width: 2161px;">Service Ticket #55474079</em>

I understand the unselectable attribute is on but even if I try setting it to off or deleting it all together the problem remains. Moreover, I've tried it in several browsers (Chrome, Edge, DuckDuckGo) and it works fine without any extensions or tricks.

In other words: only Firefox keeps me from selecting this very important piece of info.

Any help would be very much appreciated! I looked up help articles but nothing similar to my case. I did find an extension for the browser but I am afraid to try it due to security reasons.

Thank you!

Firefox is my default browser, but it does not allow me to log in to specific websites. For example, ihg.com, when I click the sign in button nothing happens, I just have a little note at the bottom left "javascript:void(0);" Another example, dutchcrafters.com , when I click Log in with Gmail, nothing happens.

I have tried removing all the content blocking extensions (privacy badgers, ublock origin, etc.), did not fix it. I have tried a firefox refresh, did not fix it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with several device restarts, did not fix it.

I know this must be a firefox specific problem because microsoft edge work perfectly for both of these examples. Any other suggestions to fix this firefox issue?

Since this week I have been unable to access flightradar24 web site due to a problem with WebGL. It tells me that I need a compatible browser e.g. Firefox

I am running Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon on and I7 processor with a NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] graphics card.

I have edited the about:config file as follows:

webgl.force_enabled TRUE

but noted a collection of failed messages as shown on the attached screen shot.

This web site is still accessible using chromium on the same computer, suggesting that there isn't a hardware problem.

Thanks

Every time I restart Firefox, places.sqlite which is currently 105MBs changes to only 5MBs and a new file named places.sqlite.corrupt appears. If I open Firefox, all my history is gone. If I rename the .corrupt file to places.sqlite my history comes back. I want to know why it gets corrupted? It happens when Firefox closes and it doesn't matter if there's a power cut, closing with X , or Exit, Firefox restarts and I have to rename the places.sqlite.corrupt file again. This has been happening for almost two years now. My computer stays on 24/7 and I may restart it once every 2-3 months, but sometimes you have to restart it many times a day because of issues and it's a pain in the behind to rename the places.sqlite.corrupt every single time. Any ideas?! Could an add-on be affecting it? I don't have a lot of them. Just basic AdBlocks.

Thank you.
