Hello. I noticed that Firefox (98.0.2) doesn't even ask if the file should be saved or opened with a program when downloading some file types. Unfortunately, these file types (e.g. GPX) are not listed under Settings --> General --> Files and Applications, so that I could assign them to a program or specify that they should always be asked. And I can't add these files somehow... I have also deleted the file "handler.json" in the profile folder, hoping to be asked then. But that doesn't happen. GPX files, for example, are assigned to the GSAK program in the system - but Firefox just wants to save them and doesn't offer the option to open them directly in GSAK. Does anyone know advice how I can get Firefox to give me the choice? Thanks a lot.

Hello, I've followed Firefox's invitation to install and update the browser on my Mac. Unfortunately the new version is not compatible with OS 10 El Capitan, my operating system, so now I can't use Firefox at all. How I do get the old version back?

Unfortunately, I downloaded “SaveFrom.net Helper” without reviewing it.

Since downloading it I have been receiving a alerts from “McAfee WebAdvisor” about “dangerous pages blocked”.

I was able to remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” add on in Firefox, but am unable to remove the “Savefrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my normal Firefox Bookmarks.

I can no longer easily see my Firefox Bookmarks and have to keep opening the Firefox Application Menu, then select Bookmarks, then select Manage Bookmarks in order to see my bookmarks.

Can you please advise how I can safely remove the “SaveFrom.net Helper” bookmark tab which has high jacked my Firefox Bookmarks.

Installing root CA certificates

I'm stetting up a testing environment. It's a closed environment with no access to the Internet when it's in use.

The environment is launched from AWS and consists of an Ubuntu 18 desktop and a Ubuntu Server running Apache. The desktop is able to successfully load the website, but with a cert error that the certificate isn't trusted.

When the Ubuntu Desktop launches, it has a fresh install of Firefox, and therefore all the directories in the users home folder are not yet setup for Firefox, including the database where the root CAs are stored.

I'm am able to add the Root CA certificate into the Firefox cert database AFTER the machine fully boots and I run Firefox for the first time. I'm using the 'certutil' package to do this. After I load Firefox, then add the root CA certificate using certutil, I'm able to load the website without error.

I need to add this certificate to the database with the startup shell script for the machine.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Here's the commands I'm using:

  1. copy the CA cert into firefox

export ffcerts=`ls /home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/ | grep default-release` sudo certutil -A -n "testcert" -t "TC,," -i /home/testuser/certificates/testcertCA.pem -d sql:/home/testuser/.mozilla/firefox/$ffcerts

These commands work perfectly after Firefox is run for the first time. I've even tried adding 'Firefox' (with several different switches) into my startup script without success.

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

Just updated to the latest firefox version 119, and noticed that the url links are now all underlined again. Checked the support page that says it can be undone in settings, but when I opened up to the said setting page, there's no option to uncheck underline links. Where else can underline links be disabled?

I use Iosevka font as my preferred custom font for websites, I really like this Firefox feature (actually one of the main reasons why I swapped from Chromium browsers), and as of updating my Firefox Nightly to "Nightly 119.0a1 (20230908094535)" version this feature no longer works on all websites, and only seems to work on the search bar when I open a new tab.

Image 1: Settings (unchanged since previous version when this feature worked) Image 2: Search bar in new tab is using Iosevka font correctly Image 3: An example of another website where the font is not being loaded where it did in the previous version.

Thanks.

After the latest update (117.0 64-bit) I now do not see the '+' sign in the tab bar. I have 40 tabs open (please, no negativity - it's always worked for me), but if I close all of the tabs it reappears. Re-open the original 42 tabs and it's gone again. Close them and it reappears, etc. Now for the fun bit: starting from scratch with a new window - the '+' is there, but open 20 more tabs and it goes.

Hello

I do not understand how firefox sync is supposed to work. I have a desktop and a laptop. The desktop is FF 85 on Linux Mint (I cannot get a later version due to some querk) The laptop is 99 on Windows 10 Both are signed in to sync but my bookmarks were scrambled so I signed out the laptop and cleared the profile, cleaned up the bookmarks in the desktop and to be safe I tried just syncing the tabs, not the bookmarks, by opening the fresh firefox on the laptop and signing in again. In the sidebar under my account icon I clicked "Synchronise now" and the open tabs from my desktop appeared in a list underneath, jumbled up. (I have 2 separate windows open on the desktop with different tabs in each, but this separation was not followed either, there didn’t seem to be any provision for syncing tabs in two separate windows)

But the row of tabs didn’t open, all I can do is open them one by one from the list on the right, this is a slow process as every time I click on a tab in the list the new page opens in the same single tab, not a new one, but the sidebar closes again.

Is this what’s supposed to happen? I was expecting the synced row of tabs to open automatically.

This feature would have been useful as my OS on the desktop, (Linux Mint) tends to crash and to have the on the laptop would be a good backup.

Incidentally the other way I try to back up the lost tabs is to select them all and bookmark them to a new folder which I call “backup” but it seems this doesn’t necessarily duplicate them, which I would prefer, so any of the open tabs that were previously bookmarked risk being removed from the original bookmarked folder, without my noticing, and I am therefore reluctant to delete the backup folder without checking that it doesn’t contain the only bookmark of a page.

When I came back to syncing the bookmarks, how do I avoid them getting scrambled again?

Google's websites works badly with Hardware Acceleration On (Google, Youtube, Gmail, Google Maps, ...)

Hi everyone, I am currently using Firefox "112.0.1 (64-bit)" on Windows 10 "10.0.19045 Build 19045]"

I have problems using almost all Google websites: most of the times they do not load at first attempt, and when they do they do not works properly. As example: Youtube does not load (or the cached version says that there is no internet connection), then after a few attempts it loads but all thumbnails on the home are gray.

On another browser (Edge) all websites works normally.

Using private window has the same problem, I have no extension and no plugin other than OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc. and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc.. I tried emptying cache and also reinstalling Firefox.

The only fix I found on the web is to disable hardware acceleration from settings. If I disable it and restart the browser, then all websites works normally. Actually I can't see this as fix but as a workaround, since I am using a notebook and I'd like to use my GPU for video decoding and save energy.

Maybe I am missing something? Is there something I can do? Thanks.
