Firefox 102.0.1 (Arch and Slackware 15)

Normal mode working fine no major complaints. However, Troubleshoot Mode is broken.

Arch: Browser goes to restart in safe mode. The window opens but no pages will load (local or remote). It looks like it is going through the motion (circular animation) but nothing ever loads. I have to get out of Troubleshoot Mode for pages to start loading.

Slackware: Browser goes to restart in safe mode but nothing else happens. No window opens. KSysGuard shows Firefox running with memory usage blank. I have to end process from KSysGuard.

Using DNS over HTTPS ADGuard and Don’t enable HTTPS-Only Mode

Arch: I tried using a new profile, refreshing Firefox, uninstalling and re-installing Firefox but the issue still occurs.

In Firefox I do log in to my account and sync in both Slackware and Arch.

Any thoughts? I can't seem to figure out why Troubleshoot Mode is not working. It was working. I just noticed it was not working anymore yesterday.

Tried downgrading Firefox to 101.0.1 and starting with a new profile but Troubleshoot Mode still did not work.

I'm not seeing any error messages in dmesg and I'm out of ideas.

Thanks

Hi, first some introduction. There two methods to download file from server:

  • left click on file and file could be opened in internal viewer (in case of PDF),
  • right click and "Save Link As..." which saves file to disk.

But when I try to download file from protected area (I will describe server below) it doesn't work as described above.

When I enter protected area on server I authenticate as usual. There's pop-up asking for Username and Password. I log in and then when I:

  • left click on file it opens in internal viewer but...
  • when I right click on file and use "Save Link As..." authentication pop-up opens again.

I can then put my credentials or I can just press Cancel, whatever I choose file is downloaded. Same happens for every file dowloaded with right click.

This is annoying if someone wants to download multiple files.

OK, now what happens on server side? There's Apache2 configured with basic authentication method. When I left click server log shows: 192.168.1.99 - user1 [25/Jul/2022:14:46:39 +0200] "GET /area1/test_file.pdf HTTP/1.1" 200 849985 but when I right click, server says: 192.168.1.99 - - [25/Jul/2022:14:48:11 +0200] "GET /area1/test_file.pdf HTTP/1.1" 401 464 192.168.1.99 - - [25/Jul/2022:14:48:13 +0200] "GET /area1/test_file.pdf HTTP/1.1" 401 464

So, as you can see with left click server respons with "200 OK" status code, but with right click it says two times that I'm unauthorized (401 Status Code). And even I'm so called unauthorized, I can download this file.

Chrome do not asks for authorization every time I try to download file. I log in only once and then I can dowload many files with right click.

I tested it with other than PDF formats and FF asks for auth everytime.

Will someone help me understand this situation?

Cheers, Paweł p.s. I can provide configuration of Apache server if that could help.

I am having a problem with Firefox when using Facebook. After scrolling down and viewing posts the posts start to jump around. You need to scroll down viewing many posts before this starts. It is very annoying. Once it starts it will jump around without any operator intervention. I have tried troubleshoot mode and also reset to no avail. This happens on two different systems in different locations both using Linux Mint 20.03 and the latest Firefox 102.0.1 64 bit. It also did this on prior versions and seems to have started as long as 6 months ago. I have mostly ignored it as reloading the FB page stops the insanity. I would say this is a FB problem but running FB with Chromium on these systems under the same conditions results in no problem.

Hopefully I am not the only one experiencing this and you will find the problem until then I am forced to use Chromium to view FB.

Hello,

Until recently, I was able to have Firefox automatically clear all my cookies at the end of a session, EXCEPT for the cookies for websites that I had specified. This was possible by:

  • Checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data`
  • Setting the websties that I would like to keep cookies for, under `Privacy and Security > Cookies and Site Data > Manage exceptions`

Now, I simply can no longer use this feature. If I try checking the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" option, then quitting Firefox, it seems to insist on unchecking the box, then changing another section of my privacy settings. Namely the `Privacy and Security > History > Clear history when Firefox closes` section becomes checked, and inside, `Cookies` is marked as something to be cleared at the end of each session. This is unhelpful, because checking the box here means that any exceptions I set in the aforementioned section is not respected, and ALL cookies are deleted.

Am I doing something wrong? If there is a way to get it back to how it used to behave, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hello everyone,

Context I have a website on my raspberry for my photos. I have created a client and server ssl certificate to secure the best

Result On my brower "Pale Moon" (firefox fork), it works fine. When I go to my site, I am asked to validate the ssl client certificate before entering the site.

On Firefox, I immediatelly get the message : 400 Bad Request No reuqired SSL certificate was sent. I don't get any error code specific to Firefox

What I have done to client certifiat


Creation of authority certificate

I put in the file openssl.cnf : [ req ] default_md = sha1 distinguished_name = req_distinguished_name

[ req_distinguished_name ] countryName = Country countryName_default = FR countryName_min = 2 countryName_max = 2 localityName = Locality localityName_default = France organizationName = Organization organizationName_default = Raspberry commonName = Common Name commonName_max = 64

[ certauth ] subjectKeyIdentifier

And I execute the following command : openssl req -config ./openssl.cnf -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyform PEM -keyout ca.key -x509 -days 3650 -extensions certauth -outform PEM -out ca.cer

The key client openssl genrsa -out client.key 2048 The CSR file openssl req -config ./openssl.cnf -new -key client.key -out client.req and then the certificat file : openssl x509 -req -in client.req -CA ca.cer -CAkey ca.key -set_serial 101 -extfile openssl.cnf -extensions client -days 3650 -outform PEM -out client.cer

P12 In order to integrate my certificate in my browser, I convert to p12 format file openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey client.key -in client.cer -out client.p12

I then integrate my p12 certificate the same way under Pale Moon and Firefox

My question How do I get Firefox to ask me for the client certificate without it ignoring it?

My certificat visible on Firefox attached

Hello everyone,

are there equivalent options to 'browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel' (see https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1370567#answer-1521671) that would allow to DISABLE the automatic display of the URL and Search fields' panel?

I find these panels visually too invasive, and I don't need them most of the time (while being happy of their existence, but I'd expect them to appear when I ask, not each and every time I click the URL or Search field!).

If no such options exist, would it be possible to add them?

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.

Not certain if this is the place to request updates...

This was going to be a question about Firefox being unable to display the file picker dialog, but I managed to find a solution that worked for me along the way. Since it was nowhere near the top of Google's results, I thought I'll share my solution in the hopes that this would help someone facing this same issue.

The hardware:

  • Asus UM425IA Zenbook (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU)

Worked in:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Firefox provided by APT repository
  • Xorg display server

Not working in:

  • Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
  • Firefox 99.0.1 provided by snap
  • Wayland display server
  • File picker worked briefly on fresh install, but something (not sure what) quickly breaks file picker functionality

The symptoms:

  • Firefox stopped being able to open file picker dialogs
  • Right clicking an image and selecting "Save Image As..." does nothing
  • With forms that accept file upload (such as on this post question page "Add images (optional):"), clicking "Browse" does nothing
  • File downloads work correctly when set to "Save files to ..." under Settings, but nothing happens when set to "Always ask you where to save files"
  • No response to "Ctrl + O" open file shortcut

Similar questions and solutions:

Things I tried that did not work:

  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Starting with add-ons disabled
  • Troubleshoot mode
  • Clearing startup cache
  • Clearing cookies and site data
  • Clearing history
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Creating and using a new profile
  • Deleting the `xulstore.json` file from the profile directory
  • Toggling all permissions under Ubuntu Settings > Applications > Firefox to off and then back to on
  • chmod 777 ~/Downloads
  • Disabling native file picker "ui.allow_platform_file_picker = false"

And finally, what fixed it for me was to go into "about:config" and change "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.file-picker" from "2" to "0". Credit to this post that clued me in.

I really hope this saves someone else 2 days of hair pulling and I would appreciate advice from someone more knowledgeable than me on:

  • Why this fixed the problem
  • Whether I should be opening a bug report either against Firefox, or Ubuntu
  • Whether I should also be changing "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.mime-handler" and "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.settings", both are currently set to "2"

Hi,

I'm working on a web site whose owner wants an unusual font : papyrus

I have the papyrus.ttf file in the root directory of this site, both locally and on the server.

In <style>, I have : @font-face {

   font-family: papyrus;
   src: url(papyrus.ttf);

}

And I add : font-family:papyrus; among the <style> settings for requested parts of the page

This functions fine on the server, but not locally. So to view the pages I have to upload them after every modification, and this is a bit tedious.

Is there a way to make it function locally, please? Either by adding some more code to the pages or by changing firefox settings?

Firefox can open image files locally, <a href> functions both locally and externally, so why wouldn't font files also function locally?

A workaround could be to make Firefox display all web pages in papyrus, but this would be a last resort...
