When I attempt to download a large file, for example this one, Firefox often:

  1. consumes my entire available Internet bandwidth, leaving other applications and devices unable to connect to the Internet, or even to other devices on my LAN.
  2. hangs, i.e. the download doesn't show any progress in the Firefox UI

When I attempt to cancel the download, Firefox does not react. Even if I close Firefox, the download continues to absorb the entire available network capacity. The PC (runniong Windows 10 21H2) can not be shut down normally; I can only stop the process by pressing and holding the PC's power button to effect a hard shutdown. When I restart the PC and restart Firefox, Firefox automatically attempts to resume the failed download, with the same results described above. How can I prevent Firefox from hogging all available network capacity for downloads? How can I terminate hung downloads in a more elegant manner? How can I prevent Firefox from attempting to resume failed downloads the next time I start it? I am currently using Firefox 103.0.2. AFAIK, this is also the latest version at this time.

When I open Firefox after starting my computer, all of my tabs from the previous session are automatically restored, and they take several minutes to load. I don't have the "Open previous windows and tabs" setting enabled. Is there a way to stop Firefox from loading these tabs each time I open the browser?

I'm using Firefox 103 on KDE neon 5.25.

Hello,

I need to connect to http://localhost/ but Firefox will not allow me to do so.

It tells me: "The connection to the server was reset while the page was loading".

This behaviour persists after:

Hello, I'm using Kubuntu 21.10 (language German) The printer is a very old HP Laserjet 4 Plus with a network card 10Mbit Network card. the IP adress is 19x.xxx.xxx.5. When printing from any other app/program is working fine Firefox on Win10 is no problem and with all other programs running with WIN10 or Linux, like Libreoffice, Kate, Okular etc., there is no problem, just with Firefox. The paper is set to A4. Not to US-Legal or Letter Maybe i screwed something in the settings, but i don't think so.

Hi all,

My Firefox version is 102.0.1.

I upgraded my desktop from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS.

I removed Firefox from snapd and installed as a deb package.

I noticed these events happening on my system:

1. No voices on getVoices():

  https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/SpeechSynthesis/getVoices

2. On my system,

$ spd-say -O OUTPUT MODULES espeak-ng-mbrola espeak-ng

$ spd-say -L NAME LANGUAGE VARIANT

spd-say -L outputs an empty table, even though spd-say "Hello world" works.

The second module espeak-ng has voices installed. Running spd-say -o espeak-ng -L produces a long table.

Iam not sure if this is a Firefox issue or an Ubuntu issue.

Hi, I have noticed this behavior for a while now and it is becoming bothersome now. It seems to happen ONLY upon initial visit to a site, any site. Once the site loads completely, any links from there loads without the black screen.

Of course, I have searched and tried the known remedies: 1) graphics driver. Chrome, Konqueror and other browsers do not exhibit this behavior. 2) FF add-on's disabled. No permanent difference. 3) Hardware acceleration disabled. No permanent difference.

I'm running 103.0.2 (64-bit) on: Operating System: Kubuntu 22.04 KDE Plasma Version: 5.24.4 KDE Frameworks Version: 5.92.0 Qt Version: 5.15.3 Kernel Version: 5.17.5-051705-generic (64-bit) Graphics Platform: X11 Processors: 8 × Intel® Core™ i7-6700 CPU @ 3.40GHz Memory: 23.4 GiB of RAM Graphics Processor: llvmpipe

This is not a deal breaker but should be addressed to make FF more perfect! Best... Hong Son

Disqus is not accepting ANY attempts to upload images and is fairly new...started rejecting image uploads a couple of weeks ago. Uploading still works fine on Chrome.

THIS is the error message:

Unfortunately your image upload failed. Please verify that your image is in a supported format (JPEG, PNG, or GIF) and under 5MB. If you continue seeing this error, please try again later.

Using FF 103.0 and Ubuntu 18.04. I tried again in troubleshooting mode...didn't help

(There are several sites that work well on Chrome but are glitchy one way or another on FFox. I don't like to use (or have to switch to) Chrome for workarounds!)

Is there something I can tweak on my FFox to fix this?

I've only been having it issue since upgrading to Ubuntu 22.04. Firefox (103.0.2) will lock up (not the pc, it will keep working in other apps). It doesn't seem to matter about the number of tabs open, or what sites I'm accessing. It 'seems' random, and closing Firefox and reopening it seems to work for a short while before locking up again. I'm not a tech guru so I don't know exactly what to include here, like logs, or other info. The other issue associated with this issue is, when it locks, and I restart, Firefox does not start the first time I click on it. I have to click on it again and when I do, it will start, but usually (not every time) I get an error message along with the open home page of Firefox. I have to press the (not sure what to call it) windows key and switch to the error to close it. In the past, I've always had a great experience with Firefox, but this is starting to really be annoying! Especially when I have four of five tabs open and have to do a restart. Firefox doesn't seem to realize it's had a problem so the option to re-open tabs with a restart doesn't happen. So I have to use history, which can be troublesome and confusing, to get back to the pages I was reading. I only open multiple tabs most often when I'm researching an issue and want to 'order' the tabs so I read the ones that look like they apply the most to my research topic. So it really is an annoying issue. So much so, that I have been looking to switch browsers. But I really do not like the large commercial entities not to name names, but I may have to suck it up and install the Big G's browser, the Big C! )^: (note: if you respond requesting additional information, please be kind and offer how to obtain the info! Thanks!)

I am currently using Firefox 91.12.0esr (64bit) [tried to copy and paste the version, but "About Mozilla Firefox" prohibits copy, so I had to split the screen to make sure I typed it in correctly]

Many websites that have been successfully used for decades with Firefox in Linux are no longer supporting Firefox. Their updates seem to vary in effect. Most I use will not allow Firefox to enter the password. Some websites detect your browser and display the message that Firefox is not supported and some functions will not work. Other posts describe the functions that do not work for them. This is seemingly not unique as I was playing Wizard101 for four years with Wine under Linux and now I am unable to log into their game. I can log into their website, so my account is still active, but I do not have Windows or Mac operating systems to use even if I could figure out how to use a virtual machine.

The only solution I have is to use the Web 3.38.2 browser / WebKitGTK 2.36.4, but most other browsers should function properly.

Although I have been using Firefox as my favorite browser for more than two decades, it seems that Firefox is no longer supported. Even the https://www.247freepoker.com/ game freezes after a few rounds.

There was a post that claimed a fix, but did not explain how to turn it on. I already checked my firewall settings and internet connectivity settings even though it did not seem to be the cause of the problem.

Ever since the update to Firefox 102 and continuing in 103, Netflix gives a F7701-1003 when attempting playback, naturally playback works fine(as it always does every time FF does this with each new release) in Chrome and Brave. All previous suggested work arounds do not resolve this issue.

Since no one answered this question the last 5 times people had to ask similar questions I will repeat this basic question.

Does Mozilla not test their updates prior to release?

Tonight I performed a computer upgrade (on Ubuntu Studio) that included the latest Firefox version, and it has lost all of my bookmarks and my passwords and I guess lot of other stuff, too.

I can't find any way of restoring them. It will not even recognize the presence of the presence of the other browsers on my system, to import browsers from them.

I need help.

I can't even check my bank account, now.

I'm upset, and I think I have a right to be.

Wie kann man auf die Dateien unter '/usr/share' zugreifen?

If I manually type a URL into the navigation bar, by default Firefox will issue a search request to Google for the URL.

The workaround is to open another tab and manually write the URL again, this time manually adding 'http://'.

I am trying to print html as a book using Paged.js and discovered that fonts are rendered slightly narrower when processing "Save to PDF", which means more characters fit on one line leaving too few characters for the last line on the page to justify, making it too stretched out.

Looking for the root of the problem I made a simple page with multi-column layout and "Save to PDF" breaks up the text differently there, too.

CSS for it is:

 width: 500px;
 column-count: 4;
 column-width: 100px;
 font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
 text-align: justify;
 text-justify: inter-character;

In the picture is a screenshot of the display at the top and screenshot of the pdf below. They came at different resolutions so I aligned them as best as I could. In this case browser puts "ex ea commodo" in the second column on one line but in pdf "commodo" goes onto the next one.
