I did not like installing apps from firefox add-ons but loved installing applications from firefox marketplace when it was there back then. It made me feel productive as it was the app store of an OS ,which was also there back then. But why was it discontinued? If there is any reason, please reply and If possible, please try recreating it. Here are the new firefox marketplace icons I suggest which I got from the web archive. Each icon is larger than the previous one. And if possible, please work on firefox OS too.

A lot of webGL apps are very low framerate (and lie about their framecounts), for example: https://webglsamples.org/blob/blob.html This runs smoothly at 60 fps in chromium, but in firefox it behaves badly. The fps counter flickers as either 53 or 80, but in reality it is maybe 15fps or lower and very stuttery. The resolution, number of blobs, or size of the window does not change anything.

  • If I enter Troubleshooting Mode, it all returns to working order. The FPS is fixed

I have tried disabling ALL extensions, changing to the default theme, disabling hardware acceleration, deleting cache+cookies+history

I installed firefox developer edition and checked it there, and it was at 60 fps, until I logged into Sync, when it then dropped.


I use KDE manjaro linux and have hardware that is definitely good enough to run the content at high framerates normally (everything works perfect in chromium)

Hi,

I'm using Firefox ESR 78.15 with a slightly modified Arkenfox user.js

I keep getting two "Unknown Collection" messages in the console after startup.

The first one reads Unknown Collection "main/messaging-experiments" in the headline, while the following text is shown in the drop down menu: "UnknownCollectionError resource://services-settings/RemoteSettingsClient.jsm:155 sync resource://services-settings/RemoteSettingsClient.jsm:455 InterpretGeneratorResume self-hosted:1158 AsyncFunctionNext self-hosted:693

The second one reads "Unknown Collection "main/cfr-fxa" in the headline, with the same text in the drop down menu as above.

Can someone please explain what these messages mean and if it is something to be concerned about?

I've spent quite some time, but couldn't find out.

Thanks

Cisco Webex Desk Camera not working (works with other browser)

Hello,

I have a new Cisco Webex Desk Camera that it's not working with Firefox (Flatpak on Fedora Silverblue 35).

lsusb: Bus 006 Device 004: ID 05a6:0023 Cisco Systems, Inc. Cisco Webex Desk Camera

https://mozilla.github.io/webrtc-landing/gum_test.html shows two cameras "Video Capture 4" and "Video Capture 5", none of them work, the page shows an error message: "AbortError: Starting videoinput failed".

The same website works in Chromium (also a Flatpak), which only sees "Video Capture 4 (05a6:0023)". "OBS Studio" is also able to use the camera. "Video Capture 5" is not available in Chromium and freezes the image in OBS Studio. I believe Video Capture 5 is the IR camera that is used in Windows Hello.

Would you be able to help me to get this camera supported, please?

Paypal's going through making me change my password, and I used the password generator for that. I guess something went wrong again, because it wants me to change my password yet again.

The problem with Firefox, is that when I hit Suggest Strong Password, all I get is the same one I already used. This is no help. Paypal says "The password has been used recently. Please try another one."

I expect it would generate a fresh one if I restarted Firefox, but that isn't always convenient, depending on what's loaded in other tabs, or in the process of downloading. So let's skip suggestions of restarting.

How do I get Firefox's password generator to generate a fresh password?

After I have started the computer and have opened the Firefox Developer Edition, there is no website content visible - everything is transparent. Links are clickable and context menu opens up, but the content is just transparent (screenshot attached).

When I close & repone the firefox, then usually on 5th to 10th attempt everything starts working until next reboot.

Firefox(Default edition v94.0) is working just fine with no problems on same machine.

When I first noticed this, version was 95.0b3. Now I'm on 95.0b12.

OS is Xubuntu 21.10 and hardware is HP ZBook Power G8 - i5-11400H, Nvida Quadro T600.

I've already tried: 1) opening on safe mode, 2) reinstalling using Ubuntu's "umake" commant line tool, 3) reinstalled by downloading it from https://download.mozilla.org/?product=firefox-devedition-latest-ssl&os=linux64&lang=en-US and copying the files, 4) opening computer using both Nvida's and Intel's built-in gpu

but nothing have worked so far - still the issue persists.


Is there anything else I should try?

Thanks!

I expect that each page / tab in firefox is placed in its own thread.

However, I experience that when one page gets stuck .. javascript is caught in a wait loop .. that this affects other pages.

Is there something in FireFox that I can change to insure that each page is in it's own thread, and doesn't affect another page's performance?

For my work, I need to paste a lot of links into text (on a website which is probably somewhat poorly programmed), and when I select some text and hit ctrl+k to create a hyperlink, Firefox doesn't recognize that it's a text box and "takes over" the ctrl+k function, focusing on the search/address bar instead of allowing me to insert the link. (The reason I blame the website is that other websites, like Jira, work fine for this)

Is there a way to disable the ctrl+k functionality in firefox? I've seen a couple old threads on disabling various shortcut keys but I don't know what the "Focus Search bar" key would be called in either the Browser Console or configs.


Thank you!!

i start a vid in youtube. the sound has static. if i open another window, even on a site that doesn't play video or sound, the sound and picture on the first window instantly get out of sync. the picture runs about 2-3 seconds ahead of the audio.

i have not customized the setup. this is a "stock" configuration. i have lots up upload, download speed. 20Mbps up, 80Mbps down.

I got extremely used to switching between tabs with Ctrl+(number) when I was on Windows, and now this feature is kind of broken for me on Linux. I have checked and can confirm that I don't have a shortcut already set to this key binding, so there is no conflicting going on.

The weird thing is that I am able to use all the other numbers (2-9) with no problem, and they work as intended. If anyone knows how to fix this problem, I'll be happy to hear the solution.
