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.

I installed Linux version Firefox on Chromebook relying on this instruction: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/run-firefox-chromeos?utm_source=www.mozilla.org-firefox-browsers-chromebook&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=seo

and I cannot type any letters other than English alphabet, even though I've set OS and input language to Korean. Problem is consistent to other typing language, except some languages that seems to have letters from alphabet combination.

While it seems that it's normal that some Chrome OS keyboard shortcuts are not compatible on Linux application, I'm not only unable to switch input language on Firefox but also not able to type any Korean letters after switching the input language outside Firefox.

Hi! I use Firefox on Ubuntu 20.04.3. I tried to speed up video on Sharepoint. Right click -> speed -> 2.0 and nothing happend. When I right click -> speed again, I saw that speed still 1.0. Then I went to google, found that Sharepoint allow speed up videos only in HTML5 player. Then I knew that to do that in Firefox I should disable Hardware acceleration, so I did it, but it didn't help. OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco add-on is activate.

Then I decided that's Ubuntu. I install ubuntu-restricted-extras, ffmpeg packages (to support h.264 video), restarted, but again that didn't work.

youtube.com/html5 saying that everything fine.

Firefox 92.0 breaks title bar and all windowing decorations (including focus and key input) running under fluxbox on Linux

Hello all.

I am reaching out since even the fix I had found recently to get v92 functioning again has ceased working.

Since the upgrade to the UI changes in v92, firefox is no longer displaying any of the native windowing toolbar or resizing decorations that are present by default in fluxbox.

I had found a workaround when this new UI came out by manually copying in a userChrome.css and userContent.css files into my firefox profile folder. This restored firefox's old/normal/default behavior of actually displaying the windowmanager titlebar and controls for the application-window so that I could select the window and drag it between my multiple desktops. (the files I sourced were found here: https://github.com/black7375/Firefox-UI-Fix )

Unfortunately though, it appears that even this fix has ceased functioning as I am now stuck with a firefox window that is literally stuck in place where it fires-up. I am no longer able to bring focus to the application, so cannot type into the window. A mouse select only partially selects the application as I am able to navigate mouse-controlled menuing, but am unable to type anything into the application. I am also no longer able to grab the application window and resize it, move it, etc.

This is running on a NOC display with 6 screens, so it is quite critical to be able to grab and move individual windows between multiple screens.

I am a 20+ year user and evangelist for mozilla software and simply need firefox to behave and look like it did before these v92 "fixes" that jacked up the UI.

In the attached image, the code is indented with 4 spaces, but it displays as if it's 2 spaces because the spaces are thinner than the other characters. In the second image, I've highlighted a single space, which is half the width of the character above it. I also downloaded the latest nightly and this still happens with it.

Github's current `font-family` rule: `ui-monospace,SFMono-Regular,SF Mono,Menlo,Consolas,Liberation Mono,monospace`

In devtools, firefox underlines `Liberation Mono` as the active font-family, but I uninstalled that from my system and it switched to `monospace` (Noto Sans Mono) with the same issue. If I change it to remove the `Consolas,Liberation Mono,` it gets fixed, but when `Liberation Mono` is installed+highlighted and I only remove `Consolas,` it doesn't work til I remove `Liberation Mono,` as well. Note that both `Consolas` and `Liberation Mono` resolve to "Noto Sans Mono" "Regular" in fc-match, which is my default monospace font.

Firefox leaves full-screen mode when window manager remaps window to be in a frame and re-sizable.

In the window-manager that I use (KDE plasma), I can ask the window-manager to exit full-screen mode, without telling the window. This allows me to tell a window to be in full-screen mode, while in a framed window. I have attached a screen-shot of chrome showing a youtube video. Both youtube and the chrome are in full screen mode, however the window manager has re-sized it and added decorations (title-bar&frame), and is allowing me to resize, move, minimize, maximize, etc.

This works for every program that I have used (that has a full-screen mode). However it is not working for Firefox. It seems that Firefox is triggering off of the wrong event.

My guess: the window-manager sets NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN to enter full-screen, and would normally clear this attribute to exit full screen. When we exit full-screen, but stay in full-screen mode, the attribute is not cleared. However Firefox is triggering off of something else such as a re-size event.

Use-case: What I am trying to do

  1. Enter full screen mode: browser hiders tab-bar, and address bar, maybe web-page changes layout (e.g. you-tube resizes video player to fill window)
  2. Tell Window-manager to leave full-screen-mode, but not inform browser (or other app). Browser is now still hiding tab-bar, address-bar, site is till showing video in whole-window, but window can be moved and re-sized.

This works for every other app that I have user. (Some apps don't have full-screen-mode, so this does not apply to them. But it works for all that do have it.)

Is there a way to change the location of the default storage directory? I'm talking about ~/.mozilla/firefox/tjdaag57.default-release/storage/default which gradually fills with files from all the websites I've visited. That directory slowly increases in size and I don't want that, so I'm looking for a way to change the location where these files go.

I read that Firefox will using the Snap version by default on Ubuntu 21.10 and beyond. Will the non-Snap version still be available in lets say Ubuntu 22.04 and beyond? The reason I ask is because I use Firejail to sandbox Firefox and Firejail doesn't work with Snaps and yes I know that Snaps and Flatpacks both sandbox apps but I prefer Firejail because of the Private Home profile (nothing is saved in this profile settings, bookmarks, add-ons etc) its way more secure than the sandbox offered by a Snap.
