Currently i found the configuration for opening in the same tab, and that middle mouse will open a new tab. However, the new tab from middle mousing, just opens the same tab as where I middle moused. It does not appear to be loading/opening the link I clicked. Ive tried a few items in about:config but havent found one that makes it load the middle moused link.

Hi, I seem to have an issue with Firefox rendering pages with artifacts. I use Linux Mint 21.2 Cinnamon, video adapter is Intel HD 4000. Currently running 6.2 kernel, tried to fall back to 5.15 which didn't change anything. Attached the examples, the first 2 are screenshots of the about:support page, the issue appear there consistently but not necessarily at the same place. I've tried to open Firefox in the Troubleshooting mode, and the artifact appeared right in the dialog asking for restart! (see pic. 3) Enabling software WebRender (gfx.webrender.software=true) fixes the issue.

about:support page:

 when HW compositing is on: https://termbin.com/7ith
 when SW compositing is on: https://termbin.com/rlme

I have tested memory with memtest86+ overnight with no errors, CPU has been tested by Prime95 for 3-4 hours, the iGPU seems to be working fine either in Unigine Heaven, GpuTest and glmark tests. Is there a way to fix the issue other than disabling HW compositing?

I maintain the website for a small dog club and use Wordpress with plug-ins to provide page flipping through pdf files in a members only area of the site. The plug-in is D-flip. I have attached .jpg files made using the Fireshot extension both FF and Chrome browsers. I also saved the page as an .htm format file which when displayed does not appear the same as the original page.

I normally just use a single firefox window but occassionally when I have multiple monitors I turn one tab (usually youtube) into a new window and put it on my second monitor. The problem is I want all new links to continue open on my original/main window but firefox keeps opening them in the new window. Is there a way to change this behaviour?

So because of the name change, I am prompted to ask "do I even have an account?" The fact that I am able to even ask you this question must mean that I do. I have been using Firefox and Thunderbird for years and never new that it / they needed or came with an account. So I apparently have an account. Now what? What can or should I do with it?

Session lost during Windows update, now I can't force Firefox to recover the session from my sessionstore.jsonlz4 file

After a windows update yesterday, when I started Firefox it didn't load my previous session as usual. Previously, I've been able to go to settings and restore the session, but there were no options for that and the relevant session wasn't shown in the recently closed tabs or windows, even though the history was intact. It loaded a new/blank window, and since then when I close and either re-open or try to restore a previous session, it only opens the tabs that I've opened today.

Firefox 118.0.2 (64-bit), Windows 10 PC.

Here are the steps I've taken:

  1. Turned off the "Open previous windows and tabs" in the startup options to get access to the "restore previous session" option
  2. Gone to the profile folder and copied, then removed the contents of the sessionstore-backups folder
  3. Copied the relevant backup session file (looks like it has the tabs I need when I scan it) to my desktop and renamed it "sessionstore.jsonlz4"
  4. Replaced the existing "sessionstore.jsonlz4" file in the root profile folder with the new one from my backups
  5. Reopened Firefox

It still just loaded my tabs from today, and doesn't show the session I'm looking for in recently closed tabs or recently closed windows. When I go to about::sessionstore, it says it's having trouble getting my tabs and pages back, and there's no option to reload a session.

I checked my sessionCheckpoints file in my profile root folder, and it only had these values: {"profile-after-change":true,"final-ui-startup":true,"sessionstore-windows-restored":true}

I updated it to include these values and restarted again, but the result was identical: {"profile-after-change":true,"final-ui-startup":true,"sessionstore-windows-restored":true,"quit-application-granted":true,"quit-application":true,"sessionstore-final-state-write-complete":true,"profile-change-net-teardown":true,"profile-change-teardown":true,"profile-before-change":true}

When I open the sessionstore.jsonlz4 file in Notepad++ I can read it normally, and when I just double-click to open it in Firefox it appears to parse correctly in terms of both structure and data... the tab 0/entry 0/URL shows the URL of the first tab that I had open, tab 1/entry 0/URL shows the URL of the second tab, and so on. So it looks like the data is there, but I can't seem to force Firefox to load that.

Any suggestions for what I'm missing?

When a playlist is loaded and played on YouTube, the next video in the playlist should automatically start playing once the current video reaches its end. This feature is commonly known as autoplay. However, I couldn't get it to work consistently. When the current video is finished, next video is loaded normally but where it should automatically play it doesn't.

I have tried below to address this issue:

  • Autoplay next video works in safe mode.
  • "allow audio and video" in autoplay permissions in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/block-autoplay doesn't help
  • I have also set media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground preference to false in about:config but didn't help
  • I have tried uninstalling all extensions and it didn't help
  • Tried logging out of youtube, but this didn't seem to help with the issue.
  • Tried "Clear startup cache" in "more troubleshooting information" menu, didn't help
  • Tried "Refresh Firefox" which didn't help

Thank you.

When I go to google search on Firefox and search for something in images, every result loads instantly. When I go to duck duck go in firefox, there is randomly huge communication lag time between pressing enter and a result populating (usually more than 30seconds-2min where normally it is instant) and a good majority of the image thumbnail results do not display. It didn't used to do this and I think something screwed something up on my computer. What can cause this?

Things I have tried: Resetting Firefox Deleting and Reinstalling Firefox Deleting all cache/cookies/Mozilla files in %appdata, program files, and other locations and reinstalling.

I prefer to use DDG over Google. Can someone help? Why is it doing this?
