Most of the times firefox opens as a broken window in GNU/linux. I am using XFCE4 DE with the default XFWM Window Manager. The way to solve this issue is to resize the window.

But I have never seen it happening with any other application on my system. I see new major version release in firefox, but they never address these issues.

It seems that as of 79.0 the `lock` file in profile dir is no longer removed at browser close. That doesn't play very nicely with selenium driver (ruby API) when I want to create a browser instance with existing profile name. It seems that profile directory is copied, but this fails for `lock` file, as it cannot be `stat`ed.

Is not removing `lock` file intended?

This can be reproduced with: ruby -r 'selenium-webdriver' -e 'Selenium::WebDriver.for :firefox, profile: "my_existing_profile_name"'

which gives the stacktrace: /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/entry.rb:409:in `stat': No such file or directory @ rb_file_s_stat - /mnt/work/webdriver-rb-profilecopy20200726-75146-9bn20t/lock (Errno::ENOENT) from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/entry.rb:409:in `file_stat' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/entry.rb:551:in `gather_fileinfo_from_srcpath' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/file.rb:303:in `add' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:92:in `add_zip_entry' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:55:in `block (2 levels) in zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:49:in `block (2 levels) in find' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:48:in `catch' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:48:in `block in find' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:43:in `each' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/2.6/find.rb:43:in `find' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:54:in `block in zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/rubyzip-2.3.0/lib/zip/file.rb:125:in `open' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:81:in `with_tmp_zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/zipper.rb:53:in `zip' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/profile.rb:193:in `encoded' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/options.rb:136:in `as_json' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/marionette/driver.rb:81:in `create_capabilities' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/marionette/driver.rb:36:in `initialize' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/driver.rb:33:in `new' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/firefox/driver.rb:33:in `new' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver/common/driver.rb:54:in `for' from /usr/local/lib/ruby/gems/2.6/gems/selenium-webdriver-3.142.7/lib/selenium/webdriver.rb:88:in `for' from -e:1:in `<main>' 2020-07-26 21:58:10 WARN Selenium [DEPRECATION] :profile is deprecated.

Previously, when I had an attachment and clicked on "Download" or the attachment's icon in the E-mail body, a popup window would appear to ask if I want to download or open the file. Recently, that popup window began not appearing. Instead, another full Firefox window pops up, the throbber (load indicator) in the new Firefox window shows that it's loading something, then that Firefox window disappears and I am back at the E-mail body. I am not able to view or download any attachments. However, in Internet Explorer viewing and downloading attachments works, so I know it's not the Yahoo website that's messed up.

Can someone help me make that popup window for selecting "Download" or "Open" come back?

Thank you, Steve

Emotes dialog box and similar dialog boxes / pop-ups on Facebook and other forums are showing on top of the page instead of showing at the comment box they belong to after latest update

So I'm using Firefox Browser Developer edition.

Ever since it updated to version 80.0b1 (64-bit), the dialog kind of pop-ups or tooltips or however they're called, are not showing properly, on sites like Facebook and other forums I use.

As you can see in the image, if you're typing on the text field, when you click the Emote / Emoji button, the pop-up window should be shown right below the text field, however ever since the update, they appear at the top of the page, making it impossible to use if the post I'm commenting on is deeper in the page.

It's really annoying, and that's just an example, but there are many other dialog kind of windows that are behaving similarly.

Deactivating add-ons didn't help.

This wasn't a problem before the update. Is this gonna get fixed? What is affecting its proper behavior? I'd appreciate any help.

Ok. So Im on Arch Linux. Tried downgrading 78, works correctly. I have firefox dev edition ver 80 and the left channel is about 64x quiter than right. Does any one have similar problem or knows how to fix it? Firefox problem - confirmed (ALSA, pulse with or without jack aren't the problem there) It's not a preference, setting, addon - confirmed. (started browser with brand new browser profile) Isn't update problem - disconfirmed (It did break after update. Downgrading and faking profile(browser version) worked fine.)

any help, or even a way to find what and where it is caused would be helpful. I did look into a shit ton of setting and debug menus, to find that everything is in norm.

(pls ignore these extensions, i will do cleanup soon and they aren't a problem here anyways)

Hello, I've noticed that in the very latest versions CTRL+F5 is much less efficient.

I'm using Developer Edition, 80.0b5. When I press CTRL+F5 websites very often don't reload css.

I can check this by opening the source code and opening the css file, it still shows the old version. If I press CTRL+F5 directly inside the css file, then it updates, but still the page itself won't load the updated version right away.

If I use a private window, I see all updates immediately.

Sometimes after hitting CTRL+F5 many times it will finally update.

This never happened before, is this a bug, does anybody else experience this, is there a fix?

Thanks.
