Hello Team,

There are two things which have been missing out from Firefox for many years.

1. Allow the Add-ons for (only) Private mode - Extra Protection. There are many Add-ons which I am only comfortable running in Private mode. There has to 3 options in the settings to choose; enable add-ons in Standard Mode, Private Mode or in Both.

2. Useless History - Unnecessary Overhead on Disk and Memory. There are many websites for which I don't want them to have a History such as Google Search; Gmail; Outlook; Twitter; YouTube, etc by obviously running in Standard Window (Not Private).

Users should have the option to let the Firefox know to not save visited URLs history for specific websites. Or keep the history not-older than 30-days for selective websites.

Let's make Firefox more secure, efficient and faster!

Regards, Rashid

Clicking "Enable" in the "Manage Your Themes" area seems to do nothing. I've tried clicking both buttons in the screenshot shown below and nothing happens at all. If I click the theme itself it takes me to another screen where the "Enable" button is also broken.

What could be causing this?  How can I change to Dark theme?

I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.3, at a dual-monitor setup. My problem is that in a Google Meet or Rocket Chat call, I can't present only one of my screens. My options are or to share a specific window, not practical because most of the time I need more than 1 window, or "screen" but it always presents both of my screens. ( not practical at all) Is there any solution regarding this issue?

Someone in Bugzilla instructed me to use Troubleshoot Mode for a separate problem, so I did. After reverting back to normal mode, I find that my addons are gone. Then I checked about:profiles. I find that one profile (default-release) has my tabs in normal colors (gray) and no addons, while another profile (default) has my addons, but the tabs are strangely white, which I don't want. How do I get the addons to appear while having normal tab color (gray)?

I had to totally reload my OS, Firefox, etc as I lost everything and now trying to restore... Before this re-build, I was able to 'login' to a place that I had saved my ADD-ONS by logging in... Now I have recovered most of my ADD-ONS and want to save them to where I saved my previous one. But when I go to the ADD-ON page, I no longer see a LOGIN to save/retrieve my old ADD-ONS.

Did my crash delete my "acct" that saved my ADD-ONS, or did Mozilla do away with that feature?

Can you help me change my password without losing everything again? It hadn't happened to me before and I don't know what to do, it all seemed very strange to me.

When i click on the lock icon in the address bar, nothing happens (I would expect to see the encryption and certificate, but no widget opens). When I right-click into the page and select "View Page Info", "Security", "View Certificate", no certificate exists. Only generic info is shown (Servers+Authorities). Also an error is reported in the system log, confirming that no certificate exists: JavaScript error: chrome://browser/content/browser-siteIdentity.js, line 642: TypeError: issuerCert is undefined

Questions:

  • Why does Firefox show the lock icon while no certificate exists?
  • How does Firefox establish a secure connection without having a certificate? (From my understanding a certificate is needed for TLS to work.)

Version used: Firefox 78.12.0esr ('Mozilla/5.0 (X11; FreeBSD amd64; rv:78.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/78.0'), no add-ons or plugins.

Sporadic toolbar freezing when using Firefox

Hello everyone, since a few months ago (I think it started happening on June) I am having this problem where the bookmark bar, the tabs, the search bar, well actually everything in the header of the Firefox window will suddenly freeze and become almost unresponsive, and I say almost since I can still interact with the content, it will just not update visually when I do so. For example, if that glitch occurs, whenever I close a tab the other tabs won't cling onto one another like they should usually do, there's a wide space from the tab I closed that never gets filled. Additionally, right clicking stops functioning completely when Firefox is in this state. This strange glitch was only encountered recently, been using Firefox for almost a decade now and I have never seen this before.

The first time it occured was admittedly my fault and I thought it would only happen that day. I had over-stressed the browser by downloading an enormous amount of data at once, or more so I was about to. I have an extension called DownThemAll, and I like to download a ton of images off the internet, so as I was using DownThemAll that way, the browser started to slow down, then I interacted with something else on the browser and this is when this occured to me for the first time.

However, although I did not repeat the same mistake twice, this issue happened to me a total of 8 times.

The second time, I was on a private browsing window (Which had all the extensions disabled, except for uBlock origin, uBO-Scope, Decentraleyes, Emoji cheatsheet, Newsguard and an extension called Ecosia that acts as a button to get onto the main page of a search engine), and all I did for it to occur again was to check the download page as I was downloading a file from Mediafire. The third time, the same thing occured on a private window after I downloaded something from another website (Can't remember which one). The fourth time, it was caused because I opened a webpage on a private new tab (Can't remember which site). The fifth time, I added a page into my bookmarks by using the star icon. The sixth time occured by clicking on the search bar on my browser. The seventh time, it occured again by accessing a website on a private window, it was a neocity website called "loveweb" that was made by an animator on YouTube called Shadok. The eighth and final time it happened was yesterday and it wasn't on a private window this time, it was on my normal Firefox window, it happened because I wanted to check the history of all the pages I've viewed.

6 times out of 8, the problem happens although I'm on a private tab and the "patient zero" DownThemAll is disabled, and I had all the other extensions installed prior to the issue happening, so that cannot be them that cause the issue in the first place. Additionally, I have a few more extension on my "public" Firefox (Facebook container, OceanHero search, Simple Mass downloader (As temporary replacement), etc), but they couldn't possibly be the culprits as they are also disabled on the private window, and most of them have been installed a long time ago. I theorize that one of two things might be the cause of my problem.

  1. DownThemAll broke something in my browser the day I had used it improperly since the issue only started happening after that fateful day.
  2. Firefox updated and that broke something in the browser, so now I have this issue.

Note that uninstalling DownThemAll didn't fix the problem, which was obtuse on my part as the problem occurs even when it is disabled, so I reinstalled it.

Also note that the glitch is so sporadic and, should I say, rare that I cannot reliably troubleshoot it to fix the problem myself. If I could I would disable each extension one by one, alter the about:config options and modify my settings on the settings menu to see what could potentially cause the problem.

I have spent each Thursday of this year trying to get into the front of the line for AMD store for a shot at a GPU at MSRP. Yesterday, I finally succeeded to get in line and had a shot at a 6900 XT or 6700 XT. No matter what I tried I could not add any product to cart. 10 agonizing minutes of trying everything I could think of to add a gpu to cart and nothing would work. Finally, all products sold out since I was unable to claim my place in line. I have been using Firefox for many, many a year and only minor problems on occasion. This was a crushing blow. I have been a stay at home dad providing 24/7 care, without income, for 17 years for my special needs daughters with 2 extremely rare genetic disorders. My oldest passed Nov 3, 2018. My youngest passed may 14, 2021 after having to endure a total lock down with no visitors from family during the pandemic. I am trying to distract myself as best I can with pc gaming as my body allows as the stress and physical demands of my duties has left my spine and spinal cord damaged. In turn my auto immune system is compromised and I am still in lockdown myself. My current video card is artifactting on me and is out of warranty. I have been a part of the star citizen community for years and with time on my hands I have been accepted into the Evocati Testing Focus group to help get the game tested and patched out each quarter. I was really crushed that I wasn't able to get the 6900 XT in cart and purchased at MSRP. That is probably more than I should spend but I need as much gpu power as I can get to carry me through several years of high end capabilities. Could you please figure out why this happened and correct it?

Google Docs Documents have sudden spacing issue between letters in Firefox

Hello.

I've been both a long-term Google Docs and Firefox user; I use Google Docs every day. For two days now, however, I have been having issues with the spacing within words. It looks like there is an extra space between the letter M while other letters tend to look pushed closer together. Thinking that I accidentally hit the space bar twice I tried to delete it, but instead it deleted the entire letter. I checked the rest of my Documents and had to realize that almost all of them are affected.

Firefox tells me it's up to date (Version 92; when I click on Help → About Firefox it tells me there are no new updates) as is my operating system (Windows 10). I deleted every browser extension I had, cleared the cache and cookies in Firefox, and restarted my laptop, but this didn't fix the spacing issue portrayed in the images below. The line spacing has been at 1.15 and the Document has been aligned left before and after this happened, so I've ruled that out as causes as well. Changing the font to another and back did not help either.

This issue does not appear in browsers such as Microsoft Edge and Chrome.

I reached out to the Google Docs support community (link to the thread here) thinking it was an issue with the website itself. The people giving advice in this thread suggested that Firefox is having rendering issues since it only occurs in (my) Firefox browser and that I contact a Firefox forum, so here I am.

If anyone has advice on how I could fix this or who else I should contact, I'd be more than happy to hear it!

Hello there,

so I usually have two Firefox windows open, both in fullscreen. When I than shutdown and restart my computer, and open Firefox again, it will create two windows with the tabs I had opened before (although I didn't check "Restore previous session" in my settings), but one of those windows will be small and flickering while the other is working normally. A solution I found to stop it from flickering is to press "F11" two times to maximize it and than get it back to normal fullscreen mode.

Firefox: Version 92.0 (64-bit) Ubuntu: 20.04.2 LTS (Focal Fossa)

Thank you in advance.
