If i am on amazon for example and an item has more than 1 option, Honey presents drop down selection box so you can choose which one to drop list The issue is the drop down box never opens when you click on it, doesn't matter where on it you click, it wont open. I have cleared cache, reinstalled honey and nothing helps. I have multiple desktop pc's all running tumbleweed and they all have this issue. If i load Chromium that works ok, but i use Firefox and not Chromium. I'm using openSuse Tumbleweed (latest update).

Hello,

I tried opening an .md file with Firefox. It seems that this was a bad idea. Now, my browser keeps opening new tabs indefinitely. I tried rebooting my computer (I am using Ubuntu), I tried removing the handlers.json files from the .modzilla folder in my home directory, but it has no effect: whenever I try to open Firefox this infinite loop goes on right were I left it closing the browser. Please help so I can use it again! Best.

Hi everyone.

I recently had to shut down my Linux machine with several Firefox tabs and windows open.

When the system came back up, I was unable to launch Firefox. When I tried, I received:

$ firefox

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /snap/firefox/2391/usr/lib/firefox/libmozgtk.so: libgtk-3.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory Couldn't load XPCOM.

I'm running on Kubuntu.


Also, when I downloaded the portable version if Firefox (which ran) my profile was gone. None of my tabs, etc. When I ran the profile manager, the only other profile that was present was ancient!

So, I'd like to:

1. Fix Firefox so that the native version runs. 2. Recover my old tabs, windows and extensions.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Mike.

Using Firefox to access TDeasyweb banking appears to work thought the login process, however accessing anything on the web site causes the web site to put me back to the login screen. I am running Ubuntu 22 on a desktop and a laptop with Firefox 121 64bit. I have contacted TD regarding this and the solution suggested was to use a difference browser or disable all the extensions and try again. Does anybody know a REAL fix for this?The problem seems to be fixed if the "delete Cookies" extension is disabled

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.

I have just encountered another of Mozilla's unwanted, unneeded changes.The three simple little characters that almost all programs show in the upper right hand corner on the screen. These are long standing and well understood icons that were easy to use to manage your windows. Need to switch between program windows? Press the - key. Need to enlarge the screen to its fullest, press the open box, finished working with this program/screen, just click the x-box. Pressing the "open box" would adjust the screen so you could use the cursor to make the screen the siz you needed.

It's not just that these features work and are understood, Mozilla makes changes with no explanation, no other options for doing the same thing (exception: I can close the window with File> Exit (or Close)

I just spent a week getting Thunderbird115+ to "work" and now I have to figure out how to recreate what I've lost on Firefox? Like other people seeking support have said, I want the Firefox I know back.

When I start typing my cursor disappears. It does not reappear until I've clicked a few times or wiggled my mouse a lot. This is quite an inconvenience, and I've tried to find a solution for far too long now. This also does not seem to affect any other application other than Firefox.

I have set both widget.windows.hide_cursor_when_typing=false and hideCursorWhileTyping=false I have also verified that there are no OS-level options set for this behavior, although I feel the above settings should override OS settings.

System details: Firefox 121.0 64-bit Mozilla Firefox for Ubuntu (non-snap) Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS Gnome 42.9 Experienced on both X11 & Wayland

Please let me know if any additional information is needed

I've got my "homepage and new windows" setting set up with several "ext+container links so that my selected websites open in their respective containers : e.g. ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

I open facebook in 2 seperate containers so that I can maintain 2 seperate personalities under facebook - e.g. I am a group admin within one, just a group member in another.

I have 2 urls defined in my "homepage and new windows" setting for these :

ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor ext+container:name=Facebook&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

This was working fine without any issues. My sites opened up when I started my web browser and everything.

Recently, firefox has started up but my container tabs do not load automatically, I am getting a confirmation (I will post a screen capture as a comment).

Is there a way to turn this off and just open the tabs without a confirmation?

Hello, I am running Ubuntu 22.04 (Firefox v 121.0) on a custom PC. Ryzen 5700G, 32GB Ram, 2TB Storage, and a Radeon RX 580 (just to give some insight into the system in case it is useful). I use multiple mozilla services and haven't had many issues up until now. Everytime I open Firefox it immediately it fires right up, the moment I try to open a tab, search, etc.. it begins to lag. It will then freeze the browser and my entire PC soon follows suit. I have had to hard reset the PC about 3 times now. I originally had the snap version installed and thought that installing the deb package would fix the issue. I completely uninstalled the snap version and turned off unattended installations in case the system tried to reinstall the snap. I then installed the deb package and fired it up again, only to have the same issue. I have ruled out a couple of things on my end. I entered Firefox Safe Mode and unchecked all of my extensions (the only ones I run are Ublock, Bitwarden, and Relay). I ran a mem test and have been monitoring Psensor to ensure the CPU wasn't overheating (both of these tests were fine). I also scanned my entire PC to ensure I did not have any viruses (clamscan reported no viruses). I have been running my PC for about an hour now without starting Firefox and using Chrome, and I have had no issues with freezing or anything similar to what happened with Firefox. Not sure where to go from here. I love using Firefox and would love to get back to surfing as soon as possible! Any tips/help would be greatly appreciated! PS I could not find any logs about the session. I looked in ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/events and couldn't find anything. If there is another place they are stored let me know and I would be happy to send them. I just don't want to open Firefox until I feel it is safe for my PC.



I forgot to add: I disabled hardware acceleration as well, did not fix the issue.

This code is however not being implemented no matter how many times I restart Firefox. 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' is set to True The location is userChrome.css is '/home/user1/.mozilla/firefox/yqomjsh9.default-release-1672744596809/chrome/userChrome.css'

What could be the issue? I tried adding executable permissions using "chmod" but that did not change anything.

Hello !

I am trying out a Linux (Fedora 39) with enhanced privacy (hardened firefox with the user.js from Arkenfox). My problem is the following : When I quit a video that was in full screen with Esc. the inner window dedicated to the webpage resizes to a smaller one such as the one seen in the screenshot.

I fixed that by going into troubleshoot mode and the window went back to its original size and then reactivated my extensions but the same problem appeared when following the process aforementioned.

Any idea what could be causing this ?

Firefox 120.0 on openSUSE Tumbleweed.

Google Maps (https://www.google.com/maps) results in CPU being pegged at 100%. No other tabs open. All I have to do is load the URL and do nothing else. This behavior is repeatable. CPU stays at 100% until tab is closed or browser is shut down. Sometimes the browser will hang and its PID has to be killed.

Hello everyone. Since installing Linux Mint in May 2023 I have been having this issue with Firefox.

Description of issue: When I switch between (or drag) tabs in a Firefox window, the whole window becomes unresponsive, with the last tab I was switching from still in front. Often the contents of the window start to flash (disappear and reappear, leaving a black backgground) every 2 seconds. I can drag the window around, scroll, minimize it, but it is impossible to give any input in any tab. The only action somewhat possible to do inside the window is bring other tabs in front, it is still quite hard for the input to register, and if it does, it takes 10+ seconds. The issue goes away if I close the specific Firefox window, or if I manage to select and drag one tab out of the frozen window into its own new window. Then everything works as intended, like nothing ever happened.

I can reliably cause the freeze-up in a short time by holding CTRL+TAB and drag one tab to change the order while firefox cycles through the tabs in the open window.

While the window is frozen, the rest of the desktop is responsive as normal, even other Firefox windows. If I try to interact with the frozen window I can rarely see spikes of CPU usage. RAM stays at normal usage levels, far from being full.

What I have tried so far that has had no effect on the appearance of the issue:

1) Disabling all extensions i have

2) Run in troubleshooting mode

2) "Create a new places database" as suggested [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-hangs-or-not-responding#w_fi...]

3) Disabled hardware acceleration

4) Creaing a new firefox user profile

5) Use "Refresh Firefox" from the troubleshooting page

6) Use the Flatpak version of firefox

7) Reinstall firefox

Here is my system information
