Every time a link is clicked or the page is refreshed, the Reload/Stop button plays an animation of the reload arrow morphing into an X and then back into a reload arrow.

This is very distracting. How can the user disable this animation?

Help guides from 2017 say to change the following about:config prefs: browser.stopReloadAnimation.enabled toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled But these do not exist anymore.

It's been a while since I noticed Firefox video is laggy on every website. I thought it was about some driver problem but everything else seemed to work well. I downloaded Chrome and it didn't have any problem running any video.

I tried clearing Firefox's cache and I tried to "refresh Firefox" on about::config, but it didn't work. I don't have any missing system updates, I'm running Firefox 84.0.2-1.fc33 on Fedora Workstation 33.

I don't like using Chrome so your help will be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I use FireFox (edit - 82.0.4 from LM repos) for my browser when using Linux Mint (I use it on WIn10 as well but this query is specific to LM). I use ClamAV for virus scanning. ClamAV has found Js.Coinminer.Generic-7132237-0 in /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/puhh983l.default-release/extensions/adblockultimate@adblockultimate.net.xpi I've searched and found some mention that it might be a false positive but nothing confirming that info so far from my searching. What have I done so far: Done a fresh reinstalled of ClamAV following the ClamAV install procedure. Checked ClamAV is up to date by checking log files and latest available on the ClamAV website. Done a fresh install of FireFox Reinstalled add-ons one by one. ClamAV only finds the Coinminer once Adblock ultimate is installed/added. I'd like to keep Adblock ultimate as it does what I want it to do easily and efficiently but am happy to remove it to avoid the coinminer (if it is a problem and not a false positive) Can you help or have any advice. Thanks

Ok, this is an annoying thing which keeps tripping me up.

Here is what Firefox shows me:

file:///home/me/Pictures/Screenshot%20from%202021-01-17%2020-44-04.png

Oh, great and there is no "preview" I can see. (I'll see what happens when I get to the post part)

Fine. But this is NOT what I am supposed to see.

Attention to the right of the input window is the (x) button.

Also clicking on the input fields, not much exciting happens.

This is what Chrome shows me on the same site:

file:///home/me/Pictures/Screenshot%20from%202021-01-17%2020-54-02.png

If I click on the clock icon (shown here in red) I get this lovely pop up.

Yes, I have the "default" ubuntu install of Firefox. Using .... Snap (or what ever it is called)

If I knew/thought on "DAY ONE" when I updated, I would have removed it and gone with the official installation.

I still can't find a clear (safe and easy) way to get rid of the supplied version and get the official one installed all the time keeping bookmarks, cookies, tabs etc. (That's another story.)

But is this something I haven't set in Firefox, or a ..... bug?

I first noticed it when I plugged in my new screen for the first time. It's quite a bit larger than my old one, and I think Firefox doesn't really recognize it.

The specific steps I take to fix it temporarily (per session) are as follows:

Press alt to show the menu bar

Select View > Toolbars > Uncheck Bookmarks Toolbar

Same steps again except to check the Bookmarks Toolbar checkbox again. Then everything is normal.

Interestingly it is never the same amount of bookmarks that aren't shown, always differs by 2 or three before it cuts off and shows just empty space.

Thanks.

I have run this website (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/sumo/html5-video.html) from previous answers to check and the results are attached to the question.

I have also checked media.eme.enabled and it is set to true.

I am very much puzzled by this.

It usually happens when I loading page or watching video on YouTube/ Bahamut Anime(ani.gamer.com.tw). When it occurs, the video still can play until the video cache empty, and after switching to another and switching back, the page becomes all white except a loading circle at the center. This situation takes about 3~5 minutes. I have tried refresh firefox, and disable all addons.

Hello, I always download mp3 files inside webs using "Save as" and ".mp3" method. Sometimes I had to explicitly save filename with ".mp3" extension to force audio download. However trying to download an audio no matter what format I write in file always download only webpage as .html never as .mp3. Looking at sourcecode (image attached) I found a detail containing "chrome" in webpage. Later, I tried downloading with Chromium at it worked properly. Does anyone know how to download this from Firefox?

Thanks in advance for your help. P.D. I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) for Ubuntu canonical - 1.0.

I have a VMware VM used as a desktop by a team and they've reported that Firefox only shows a blank screen. It doesn't respond to anything, if I click the burger and click options then it doesn't even open a new tab. And I can't even access about:config.

However I've discovered that if I access the desktop via the VMware console then FF works perfectly fine, if I RDP onto the desktop and run FF I get the behavior as I've described.

Even weirder...is if I launch the browser in an RDP session and then seize the session via the VMware console then the behavior stays there until I relaunch it.

And vice versa if I launch the browser in the vmware console and then log in via RDP the browser works perfectly fine until I relaunch it!

What could be causing this?!

I've tried: Disabling hardware acceleration Cleanly uninstalling Reinstalling both the latest version and latest ESR Removing my profile All resulted in in the same blank FF.

No other VM running FF is experiencing this issue, and I'm the only one with rights to modify things.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

I just installed Brave, and clicked on "Import settings & bookmarks", then chose Firefox from a popup list

Without typing my password, or doing anything else, Brave then instantly imported all of the saved passwords that I had stored in Firefox. I can now view all of my most secret saved passwords of Firefox... in Brave

This makes me wonder, if Brave can instantly import (and display in clear text) all of my Firefox saved passwords, couldn't any other rogue app do exactly the same?

Shouldn't they be stored in an encrypted format, at least?

Am I missing something or are the passwords wide open that Firefox saves?
