As of the last update to Firefox for android Firefox is now intercepting all file download links and not allowing me to select the location to save the file previously these links would display an intend asking if I wanted to download with Firefox or use an external download manager app. This is no longer occurs and I am unable to save downloads to my external SD card. Is this a flaw in the new version or did a config setting get reset during the update I have forgotten about,

FF 77.0.1 64 bit

This is supppose to block fingerprint but i still get panopticlick

Your browser fingerprint appears to be unique among the 251,948 tested in the past 45 days.

Currently, we estimate that your browser has a fingerprint that conveys at least 17.94 bits of identifying information.

I am facing the problem to open the sites. When I used the network, it show the following error:

Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.

We can’t connect to the server at www.google.com.

If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web.

Please let me know your suggestion and comments.

we have all Win10 in our enviromnet with 200+ endpoints all running FF as default browser. Our core banking platform is supported in FF and many of our 3rd party apps require us to use FF. Since the FF update in June, we are having random users crash everyday and the only thing that will get them working is to re-install FF we have the latest ESR and the regular version all on latest versions . Out of 200 or so PCs, we have at least 4 or 5 random users crashing daily. its not happening for me, but for many others its a regular thing.

Is there a paid option for FF support to help troubleshoot this? we cannot just go to another browser at this time. below is an example of error. can provide crash reports if needed. we have sent some crash reports but nothing so far has fixed this. Boss man thinks its due to one program or another causing this to close xul.dll __ just started crashing again with every launch.

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 3366 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

I have observed that work offline is possible only when site has been verified which makes it nightmare. If I restart the browser w/o connection any site cannot be verified and, hence, offline does not work!

Please, tell me how to disable verification: 1) in general, and 2) while working offline.

PS: From version 57 if I remember correct, no multi rows, no extra Tool Bar, no Tab Mix Plus, no Session Manager, no automatic download start with DownThemAll!, no work offline, etc. Firefox >= 57 has destroyed the best UI experience!

I made a quick recording showing the issue: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UZt_9jyDhos

I get the same problems in Firefox on both Debian with Cinnamon (on my desktop) and Linux Mint Debian Edition (on my laptop). As you can see in the video, I've tried clearing cache, cookies, history, and extensions, but no luck.

Other solutions I've tried since making the video:

- disabled PIA VPN - created a new Firefox profile - turned off DNS prefetch - turned off IPV6

(I reverted each of these after they didn't work.)

The problem has another twist to it. There is a password set in the option that is not the one I have just used to sign in.The password is very long and repeatedly uses the text "padding ****"
