This is super frustrating. How to use Firefox for development purposes? There should be an option to add exceptions. I even went to settings and added an exception manually to no avail.

I'm going often through pain to use firefox for everything but then there must be a reasonable way to achieve the goals.

Please tell me there is a way to workaround this easily without compromising security of other sites that are being visited.

P.S. I can open same site with adding an exception on chrome.

Hi,

just for understanding:

Why can the Firefox source code (view-source) of a website be nearly three times the size compared with Chrome/Opera or when I save the Firefox source code marked and copied and then pasted and saved via an editor?

Example: Firefox 546,6 KiB Chrome/Opera 204,3 KiB via Editor 204,3 KiB (marked and copied Firefox source code)

Best

I can install firefox in a 20.04 ubuntu image however I can't get the sound to come out to the host. I think it is because of these messages: oot@lnx01:/# firefox libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overridden by environment. [Child 8724, MediaDecoderStateMachine #1] WARNING: 7fdc1c636ee0 OpenCubeb() failed to init cubeb: file /build/firefox-kPTBHF/firefox-128.0+build2/dom/media/AudioStream.cpp:285

I am using the tainted nvidia driver on my host. Has anyone got this to work? I messed around by adding various mesa drivers to the image with no fix. Any suggestions? I am using the ppa version of firefox in the container.

I'm talking about how when you go to fill out a text input, it'll suggest that input next time you go to a similar field. Well, that system just saved my social security number as an input after I filled out a government form. I would like to turn this feature off now, and delete the history of it if I can. Is there a way I can do that?

I'd attach an example image of a different website, but the box goes away when trying to take a screenshot.

Why I can't login to outlook.office.com (Microsoft 365) with passkeys when I use Firefox (newest 128) in Linux? It doesn't offer me to use passkeys to login when I go there.

I can login with passkeys in Firefox when I use Windows 11 or Google Chrome in Linux.

Hi! From some time now i have problem with GUI elements overlapping each other. It started with the window control buttons (that part, where you can close the window). Esthetics aside, it was not that big deal, so I just ignored it, but some time ago similar overlap appeared on address bar - so now I don't see what I'm writing. This is a big deal, now I can't really tell if I made a typo, I'm not able to correct it or I can't see if what I'm writing is mixed with original url, stuff like that.

I'm on Manjaro Linux and Firefox version is 127.0 (64 bits) I've tried to reinstall Firefox with different sources, like Flatpak for example, but the issues persists. Has anyone an idea how to fix this?

Firefox has long been my browser of choice on all platforms. I am switching from Windows to Linux and have recently found problems playing some videos on the Linux version of Foxfire. I don’t know if it’s a matter of having the right codec or something else. The videos play with Chromium on Linux and with Firefox on my Android smartphone. My Linux laptop is running version 128.0 of Firefox for Ubuntu version 24.0.0. Here are two offending links. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkZuGil6U4w https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxVcDPtDnjM
