Using FF 108.0.2 (64-bit) in Debian 11 Linux,I need to view http://www3.winsystem.org/monitor/webmonitor.php but my new laptop is very high resolution. I can control the text size with Ctrl+ but the background gif image of a small window with bogus scrollbar needs to be made larger somehow so that the white text can be read against the black portion of the image.

Is there some way to enlarge the gif image, please?

The main youtube page loads and displays ok. As soon as a video is played (even in preview), firefox crashes. I'm on Linux Manjaro. other websites with video work fine (for ex Vimeo) I tried disabling all my addons and plugins in the normal mode (not troubleshoot mode) and it still crashes. However, the troubleshoot mode works fine ! Refreshing firefox didn't fix the issue. I have another computer with Linux manjaro and firefox works just fine. I spent a lot of time trying to understand what's wrong but I really don't see why.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi,

I'm on an a pretty old Linux Xubuntu pc, but with the latest FireFox. In a profile I regularity use I unchecked the Title Bar checkbox in the Customize Toolbar screen, but then FF crashed and I can't get that profile opened again. I can still open other profiles (because I still use the old-fashioned profile manager and don't need to go into about:profiles), but when I open that particular profile, after some hangups, I only get FF in the taskbar, but no screen opens so I can't change the setting back again.

Is there a file in the profile folder I can edit or something like that to enable the Title Bar option again to see if that profile wants to open normally again?

In case that's not possible I can copy that particular profile into a new profile, but then I will undoubtedly also copy the title bar setting, which I don't want. So can I copy the profile except for the one file with that setting and use the file from the new profile instead? What file would that than be?

I hope someone can help me out. Thanks in advance for any help.

I have a new chromebook (Lenova Duet 3) I can install and use Firefox. I have had Dashlane (password keeper) working fine with Firefox for years. The Dashlane extensions work with Chrome, but I can't seem to get them to work with Frefox. The Chrome search engines choices are limited; ones that I never use with Firefox. Is there something in the Chromebook environment that limits firefox capabilities? (Am I looking for something that just is not possible?) Is there a work around? (Any Linux tricks?) I also have asked the same question of Dashlane, but have not heard back yet. My imperfect solution is use Chrome when it is a known website, and the password is recorded with Dashlane, and to use Firefox for new searches, where the choice of search engines is better.

Has anyone developed a search engine where there are no "sponsored" results. I understand that it would probably not be free.

Hello,

After installing Firefox (103.0.2) on a clean install of Manjaro (21.3.7) Gnome (42.4), I started noticing that mouse hover effects such as highlighted tabs, UI of a video-player appearing etc. are delayed after my PC exits hibernation (I am not sure if that is the only cause and if that really IS the cause). Weirdly enough the select menu I used to answer the "Which topic best describes your question?" question to create this post experiences no delay in highlighting the hovered element. Relaunching Firefox fixes this issue temporarily.

To be clear this is no performance issue since everything except mouse hover related interactions are fluid.

Thanks for helping out

Hi, Ive looked for a reason for this but i can find nothing. I've freshly installed ubuntu, pop_os and Manjaro. All 3 crash within minutes of starting up firefox. mind you these are fresh installs and there is no cache to clear and no extensions or addons. And what is stranger is the fact that only on Manjaro, firefox is excruciatingly slow. to the point of almost unusable. Is there any thing i can do, or, can anyone help me with this? its been going on for several months. thank you for your help and time Alchamech

Hello, in past versions of Firefox, I was able to follow the steps on this page to set a custom HTML file on my PC as my home page for new tabs: https://peterries.net/blog/firefox-ubuntu-local-file/

I have Firefox 107.0.1 now and it's not happening. When I open the browser from scratch, I see my custom home page file. But when I open a new tab, I just see a blank screen. If I then click the Home icon on the toolbar, I do see my custom HTML page, but I don't want to have to click that button for each new tab.

Right now, in my settings, I have the URL to the page set as the custom URL for the HTML fiile, like this:

file:///home/peter/Documents/homepage/peter-home-homepage.html

That works. And I also have followed the steps on that blog post to customize my /usr/lib/firefox/autoconfig.cfg and my ../firefox/defalults/pref/autoconfig.js files. That's no longer working.

Did something in a recent version change? Is this no longer supported? Thanks for any ideas!

Hi, I use Zoro.com for buying industrial parts. I get access denied on all my computers (something got synced). I tried clearing cache and clearing something else to no avail. Recently I did a clean reload of Linux and was able to get on to zoro. But when replaced the mozella directory with my copy (with all data) zoro again became unavailable. I have been doing workaround for months but it is a pain to switch browsers every time. Any Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Ps I have been on the internet since it was called compuserve at 300 baud. I used to program machine code, dos, cpm, c+, Unfortunately at this time in my life a am not able to learn new tricks.

I'm using the latest version of Firefox on an updated Fedora Linux installation. I am experiencing for a while now random crashing while watching videos. The playback crashing is random, so I could be watching 5 videos one after another with no crashing and then one video will cause it to crash. The video causing is site agnostic, so it could crash from any site, not just YouTube. I saw in bugzilla something that I thought was related to the crashing (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1779558) but it got resolved and it still keeps happening to me.

It's getting tiresome, please. What do I need to send you to help me fix this problem?

I have a Raspberry Pi 400, and I am using two SD cards to hold Ubuntu and Raspberry Pi OS. I want to use Firefox on both, so I figured it would benefit me to sync my data between them.

On Ubuntu, I am logged in and it works fine.

On Raspberry Pi OS, I go to settings > sync > sign in and it redirects to Mozilla sign in. I entered my email and password, then it crashed. I opened it again, it restores my session. In one second it crashes again. This happens every time.

I do not know the Firefox version, and I installed it from Pi-Apps.

I use Firefox to download, copy, and store WikiSpecies pictures.

Currently, my .../Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8 directory holds what it says are 90,876 items, totalling 11.5 GB. I have plenty of unused space in that directory (over 91 GB), so space is not an issue.

Lately, when I try to install a new picture, I keep getting a warning that the picture is already stored. This MAY be because I am running out of new pictures, but I can't tell.

Is there any capacity limit to a WikiSpecies directory?
