Recently my home page is blank. Each new tab opens as blank, bookmark icons are missing. I used to have a search engine when i opened Mozilla but now it's totally blank. I need to click on the bookmarks icon to open the list of bookmarks saved instead of seeing them on the toolbar. I didn't change anything and now it's all gone. I have uploaded a screenshot of my screen when I open Mozilla.

I change nothing in my settings and I am now on Dark background everywhere despite having: - forced the system settings (OS) to stay in light background - in about:preferences appearance I've manually selected (forced) the light background - in about:config I've tried to switch the browser.theme.content-theme to "1" (instead of "0")

this is really frustrating, I would like to get a better "reading" of what happens, as an Engineer I am happy to also squint at logs if needed, please consider adding a preference / settings change log file

No crash report, no trace, no anything. I click "Save [insert] as...", and Firefox hangs and stops responding. Windows automatically shuts it off when clicking. Launching Firefox again sometimes says there was a problem reloading the session, but that's not guaranteed.

Hi,

  I am running the latest Firefox v122 (firefox_122.0+build1-0ubuntu0.22.04.1~mt1_amd64.deb not snap)

and when using the --profile option to specify the startup profile it fails to start even on a NEW system that never ran Firefox if I give it a directory that resides on a mounted ext3 filesystem.

  All the permissions are OK and yet running strace I see an error and after a few second will get the

generic pop-up with the error message: (after a few seconds)

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

 Running the SAME from /tmp works fine, but I need the profile to reside on a persistent storage area

so if the LIVE distro restarts then it can restore the previous session, bookmarks, options, etc...


============================================================
 The 2 directories were created identically and have the exact same permissions:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ mkdir /tmp/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ mkdir /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ ls -ald /tmp/firefox3 drwxrwxr-x 17 xubuntu xubuntu 1080 Jan 21 22:05 /tmp/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ ls -ald /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3 drwxrwxr-x 17 xubuntu xubuntu 4096 Jan 21 21:13 /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3

============================================================

The only difference is that one is mounted on tmpfs and the other is on /dev/nvme0n1p2:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ df -k /tmp/firefox3 Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on tmpfs 32560016 351528 32208488 2% /tmp

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ df -k /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3 Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/nvme0n1p2 195751828 51056068 142695768 27% /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home


============================================================

When starting firefox with the /tmp/firefox3 profile directory it works fine and starts up:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ firefox --profile /tmp/firefox3

newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0775, st_size=1040, ...}, 0) = 0 newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3/.parentlock", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=0, ...}, 0) = 0 openat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3/.parentlock", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 11 fcntl(11, F_GETLK, {l_type=F_UNLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0, l_pid=-487933736}) = 0 fcntl(11, F_SETLK, {l_type=F_WRLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0}) = 0 uname({sysname="Linux", nodename="xubuntu", ...}) = 0


BUT when using the persistent storage on the real filesystem (but SAME exact permissions) it fails:

newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0775, st_size=4096, ...}, 0) = 0 newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3/.parentlock", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=0, ...}, 0) = 0 openat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3/.parentlock", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 11 fcntl(11, F_GETLK, {l_type=F_UNLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0, l_pid=1519466008}) = 0 fcntl(11, F_SETLK, {l_type=F_WRLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0}) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied) close(11) = 0

Am I doing anything wrong or is this some weird startup issue / race condition in the parentlock management?

Thank you for looking into this.

  -Sanjiyan

PS: I can upload the full strace file for both scenarios if needed. Thanks again.

     running on an xubuntu distribution "22.04.2 LTS (Jammy Jellyfish)"

I am running Firefox Developer Edition (123.0b1) on Windows 11 and every time I start Firefox it maximises and then resizes to a set size with the maximise button set to restore size mode (I.e. the window thinks it is maximised). I have followed the steps detailed for this question: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1411093 however that does not resolve my issue. This has only started recently after I turned the laptop into a tablet and back again. Once I "restore" the window and then I maximise the window it works as expected. However it is very annoying. Also if I start another instance of Firefox this new instance does not exhibit the same behavior.


Computer: HP Envy OS: Windows 11 with all current updates and as far as I can tell AI is turned off using a group policy.

When watching a video on YouTube, the sound suddenly stopped playing. Currently, sounds in video and audio are not played on all sites.

The problem is only in the browser. Audio and video files are perfectly reproduced by the VLC player. There is also sound in the Chrome and Firefox ESR browser.

My actions. 1. Disabled all extensions 2. Clearing history and deleting all cookies

My browser - Firefox Developer edition, version 123.0b9 OS - Debian 12

P.S. I have been using the developer edition for many years. It seems to me more convenient and faster compared to regular Firefox. I really don’t want to delete the customized browser.

I need help with audio in browser...

Many thanks!

I do not want my searches to be reflected in the address bar. I believe in prior versions of Firefox there was a checkbox to delete that provision. I'm using Firefox 123.0 64-bit with Windows 10 and have been through the setting and more tools areas but found no way to remove that function. I did try the about:config suggestions but still have no joy.

Attempting to log-in on Twitch with Firefox Browser - Developer version 122.0b9 (64-bit) is currently not possible, repeated messages are prompted by the Twitch website about "unsupported browser" and to contact browser support to resolve this issue.

Clearing cache, disabling extensions did not work. Using regular Firefox works without issues, only noticed this being an issue after most recent update for Firefox Dev browser.

Side effect as well since update is that any Cloudflare captcha is impossible and all website that use Cloudflare to "authenticate" that I'm human just outright fail or continue indefinitely.

Hello! Can you help me sort out a little problem? I am reaching out to seek assistance with a specific issue I am encountering in the Firefox browser.

In my previous browser, when opening new tabs, they were considered active even if I did not immediately switch to them. This behavior allowed me to open multiple tabs, for example, by using the mouse wheel to open several videos from the main YouTube page. Subsequently, when closing the main page, the videos would be available in the order they were opened, facilitating a seamless viewing experience.

Upon transitioning to Firefox, I have attempted to configure the browser to replicate this behavior using the Sidebery extension. However, even with the extension, new tabs are not recognized as active unless I explicitly switch to them, making it challenging to maintain the desired tab activation order.

I have explored various settings and experimented with the Sidebery extension but have not been successful in achieving the desired result. In contrast, the Yandex browser, with the "Switch to the previous active tab when closing a tab" option enabled, behaves in the manner I am accustomed to.

Could you please provide guidance on how I can configure Firefox to consider new tabs active immediately upon opening, regardless of whether I switch to them immediately?

I added pictures to make it clearer what I'm talking about.

Thank you for your time and assistance.

why do my add-ons keep getting disabled?

ff keeps disabling add-ons that i have used for years and even keep a v. 5 to use the older add-ons and use the latest ff developer to use w/ more modern websites. ff even disables add-ons that worked perfectly well in ff developer and does not even give me the opportunity to re-enable them like i could before.

is there any way to force my old version to let ME decide what i want disabled/enabled?

When you add a new bookmark to a folder it's added at the end of the existing list.

Is there a way to make Firefox add it at the top of the list, instead?

I found an old answer, but, sadly, the extension granting my wish is no longer.

Also, I already know about sorting, but it's not what I need, because I'm doing a lot of manual bookmarks reordering and sorting will nullify it.

Thank you :)
