firefox returns lots of:

       libEGL warning: DRI2: failed to authenticate
      ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overidden by environment


When I added a line to /etc/drirc to specify a value firefox returns:

       ATTENTION: option value of option mesa_glthread ignored.

How can I make this stop?

Hi, I've just reinstalled my firefox browser and I have some issues: - I can't install ANY add-on, even the ones from Mozilla Firefox itself, I get the message "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt." on all of them - I can't add another language on my browser and get an error message "Firefox can't update your languages right now" - The screenshot option doesn't work, on any page

I have already tried deleting and removing all data from Firefox, and reinstalling it again but it doesn't work. I'm really at a loss with what to do.

Thanks

See dialog box screen print below. The .cpp file is not a GIT file. A .cpp file is a C++ program source file from Microsoft Visual Studio, and I should be able to open the file with Visual Studio 2019 (current version of Visual Studio on my PC). But misclassifying the .ccp file as GIT does not give me the option of opening the file with Visual Studio 2019. How do I change the classification of .cpp files from GIT to C++ (I'm on the newest version of Firefox...all prior versions worked correctly) ?

Immediately following a Firefox update I began having scrolling problems on my Facebook page. I am able to scroll down normally to a point, and then, all of a sudden, the scroll bar will go up and immediately go back down without me touching the mouse. It will continue doing the up and down scrolling indefinitely and at a high rate of speed. I have tried turning off auto scroll and smooth scrolling at the browser, but no luck. I have Windows 8.1. I have never heard of anyone else having this problem so this seemed like my only option.

Whenever I try to open google or search anything, It shows this error and only button to Go Back

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this website requires a secure connection. What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the website, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the website’s administrator about the problem.

Someone could be trying to impersonate the site and you should not continue.

Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust www.google.com because its certificate issuer is unknown, the certificate is self-signed, or the server is not sending the correct intermediate certificates.

Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

Firefox was working fine yesterday. But all of a sudden while playing a youtube video it started being choppy. It drops frames, scrolling and video playback are choppy and laggy, there is lag on button inputs, the system is choppy and laggy too while firefox is open, especially when video is playing. I checked the CPU and GPU usage and I can't see any spikes. I have tried refreshing firefox but that did not fix the problem.

OS is manjaro linux (gnome version) latest. Firefox is also at the latest version.

Hi, this is a minor problem and more a quality-of-life thing, as there is no hard crash or bug per se. Context: I need to print a LOT of things every month for the job, so I download a LOT of PDFs.

Problem: When downloading a PDF, if I open it via the dropdown menu in the menubar, it opens, but immediately unfocuses Firefox. That's it. Why the unfocusing? Lol.

Limits: If I mark PDFs to open automatically (in the options) instead of downloading, then it opens fine and no loss of focus. Same thing if I open from a folder, it's set to open in Firefox and it does so, with no loss of focus. As far as I can tell, the issue appears only when opening from the download button/icon/dropdown menu from the menubar.

Suggestion 1) Adding a "Download AND Open in Firefox" option in the settings would be my ultimate greatest option but.... maybe not the best for cluttering millions of people's browser options. It's just what "I" want to do ;)

Suggestion 2) Trace where it loses focus and re-focus / prevent loss of focus when opening from the menu.

Problem/possibly relevant info:

  • yesterday evening, auto-fill for logins/passwords was working
  • when I opened my laptop (from standby) this morning, my welcome screen was frozen at last night's day/time when I lowered the lid so I restarted (press and hold power button; this happens all the time as of the past 6 months or so)
  • logins/passwords have now disappeared
  • Windows 10, Firefox v.102.0 (updated July 1st)

After 2 hours of trying to find answers, I've done/discovered the following:

  • followed steps here: https://lifehacker.com/how-to-recover-your-missing-firefox-passwords-1835616191 -- didn't work
  • I don't have other profiles and am not synced to another device
  • I've had no luck finding an "Old Firefox" folder
  • logins.json, logins.json-2.corrupt, and logins-backup.json all have the same timestamp (this morning) and file size
  • when I open logins.json and logins-back-up.json in Firefox, I get the following message: SyntaxError: JSON.parse: unexpected character at line 1 column 1 of the JSON data (I suspect this is where I'm in big trouble...)

I am very non-techy so any straightforward suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Otherwise, I guess I'll have to decide if I want to pay to get it fixed or go to the hassle of re-setting all my passwords. ;)

Thanks!
