Hi, least night I was using Firefox and all was fine. I closed it as usual. This morning all of my tabs were gone! I still have my bookmarks but the tabs are gone. Is there any way to get them back? I can only assume that this is from the recent update?

Thanks, Steve

Sheesh, I tried to append to another question but failed. Just as well... I am using a Dell Inspiron 1545 laptop with Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS. Every time I put my laptop in standby mode (close the display) then reopen the Firefox window expands beyond the left edge of the computer. I tried some solutions offered on the forum but they did not help. Now when this happens I hit the maximize button and the Firefox display actually shrinks to a small size. That's counterintuitive but... When I hit the maximize button again the Firefox window expands to the correct size. So it's now only a minor annoyance. It seems like there ought to be a simple solution to this but I haven't found it yet.

In the about:profiles page I can see that the Root Directory for my current profile is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 When I click the Open Directory button it does nothing. When I manually navigate to /home/username/.mozilla/firefox I can see that there is no folder there called no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978

The Local Directory is show as: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/cache/mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 This exits and opens with the Open Directory button.

If I search for no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 in the file manager, I see that there are two folders with this name, on at the Local Directory path shown above and the other at: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox My assumption is that this is actually the Local Folder (it contains files with today's date)

My question is, why does about:profiles show the wrong path for the Local Directory or why is the actual Local Directory in the wrong place (it appears that the path shown in about:profiles is the normal default location)?

I tried creating a new profile and it was created in exactly the same way: the Local directory path is: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox but about:profiles says it is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox

I would rather have my profile in the normal default location but I want to ensure that I don't leave pointers to the wrong location that could cause problems.

I am running Firefox 121.0 (64-bit) from flathub on Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm).

Any help appreciated.

Recently after signing in to Pocket, all my tags disappeared. They can still be seen at each individual entry, but not on the list of tags. Any new tags I added also don't appear in the list of tags, which is completely empty. Searching for tags also gives no results. I tried to log out and log in again, but it had no effect.

Continuous 'Mozilla Crash Reports' from Firefox

I have a home-built media center (OS: Linux Mint 20.3) utilizing Firefox as the primary browser. This system has run almost flawlessly for many years. Updated to 20.3 in early 2022. Rather suddenly (yesterday) Firefox began repeatedly crashing, displaying 'Mozilla Crash Reports' (example attached). Firefox appears to initiate as expected. However, on display (e.g., Youtube, Facebook, web page, etc.) request, Firefox immediately throws a 'Mozilla Crash Report'. I do not recall any changes to the system that might have generated this condition, and have spend most of today unsuccessfully troubleshooting.

MB: Gigabyte F2A85XM-D3H CPU: AMD A-10 5800K APU with Radeon HD Graphics OS: Kernel: 5.4.0.170 generic x86_64bits; on 128MB SSD Firefox for Linux Mint mint-001 - 1.0 (122.0 (64 bit)) RAM: 7 GB

I have attempted to follow some of the moz://a Support pages (i.e., "Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems"). I have noted that while in 'Troubleshooting mode', Firefox appears to behave as expected, seeming to implicate extensions, themes and/or hardware acceleration. However, under normal Firefox operation enabling/disabling these does not seem to resolve the issue.

    * Hardware acceleration (on or off) still results in display of 'Mozilla Crash Report',
    * Default theme is selected, and
    * I don't appear to have any unaccounted extensions or other addons enabled.

Any thoughts and/or additional guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I am trying to sign into my bank accounts per usual this week and am encountering the above issue. I feel like I have tried everything. I can sign into the account on Safari, Microsoft Edge, or the on phone app just fine. I did not have this issue last week. To date I have tried: 1. Clearing cookies and cache 2. Forgetting the website 3. Turning off all addons/plugins 4. Changing theme 5. Uninstalling and reinstalling FireFox 6. Refreshing FireFox 7. Turning off fingerprinting 8. I do not use a VPN 9. Tried using incognito mode 10. Tried using safe mode

Please help. This is so frustrating. It is not on the bank's end as others can sign into their account just fine from Mozilla Firefox. It is not a computer issue, because I cannot sign in on either my laptop or my computer. I do have my browsers synced across machines, but I have tried logging out and signing in again to no avail.

Firefox doesn't seem to have a built-in feature for listing the contents of each container tab in Firefox one at a time. That is, I would like to have only the contents of one tab container shown on my browser at a time, and be able to switch from one container to another freely. What is the use of containers if all their contents are displayed at once on the tabs of my browser?

Within the Add-on Manager by clicking Manage Extension Shortcuts - you can make shortcuts for add-ons to perform specific functions via the buttons on your keyboard, but I want to actually be able to use the buttons on my actual mouse rather than the keyboard.

Does anybody know if this is possible? Currently when I try to use my mouse to input a 'shortcut' in the 'Type a shortcut' box nothing works.

Are there any about:config settings or add-ons that can enable me to use my Mouse to make shortcuts for my add-ons?

After a crash earlier today within my 32bit install of Firefox, I upgraded to the 64bit version. Since then I have not been able to play videos from sites that utilize DRM.

I have tried the following:

  1. Check and Uncheck "Play DRM content"
  2. Check for updates while in the addons related page.
  3. Checked my hosts file which is blank
  4. Stopped my AV and attempted to update as well as Enable/Disable Play DRM
  5. Get a 404 when attempting to go to "redirector . gvt1 . com" site.

When I looked in my profile directory, I noted that both the "gmp-gmpopenh264" and "gmp-widevinecdm" directories are empty. I found and downloaded the most recent openh264 dll for windows 64bit. Firefox continues to say "OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. will be installed shortly." I have not found the most recent wildevine version so I have not tried to update it manually.

Could there be something squirrelly with my user profile that needs to be rebuilt? (I can export the bookmarks, etc) The 32bit Firefox crashed with no messages while watching a live YouTube stream. I just installed over without uninstalling the previous version. I was afraid of losing my current settings. The crash caused my "previous session" to be lost.
