I've been using Firefox on Windows for a very long time. When I switched over to Ubuntu, I kept using Firefox as my main browser. When I'm on Ubuntu and I try to switch tabs with Ctrl+tab, sometimes the the Firefox window closes and I don't get to access the previous session in Restore previous session in the hamburger menu or in history. Is this a Ubuntu problem or am I clicking on something I don't understand?

Hola me parece interesante la folosofía de Mozila y me gustaría ayudar traduciendo algunos artículos al español, pero no me queda claro los pasos a seguir. Traté de contactar a uno de los líderes de proyecto mas no sé porqué me redireccionó a otro lado. Por otra parte el vinculo para iniciarse en SUMO parecía estar roto. Sería de ayuda si me escriben directamente al correo o pudiera ponerse en contacto conmigo alguno de los lideres de proyectos a ver cómo puedo ayudar en el proceso.

Given that Firefox Developer Edition isn't typically packaged by distros, the only way to install it is manually unpacking the tarball from Mozilla to some suitable location and manually write a .desktop entry. But now that the main Firefox build is available as a Flatpak, are there any plans for publishing Developer Edition that way as well?

I am running Firefox v76.0.1 64bit on an iMac.

Suddenly in Gmail emails accessed by the web interface are showing no images with the broken image link, some are showing around 10% of the images and others are showing all the images. This suddenly started earlier this week.

I have tried safe mode with no plugins and still exactly as above. I have tried turning Advanced Protection off and again no change. The attached screenshot is an example of the problem.

If I access the emails using Safari then I have no issue.

I have a few special buttons on my keyboard (Calculator / Mail). I've set them (on lxde-rc.xml) to run a simple bash script (Volume up / down using pactl). Unfortunately, I've noticed that only on Firefox hangs when I press these buttons (tested with terminal/slack/IDEs/Chrome, no issues). It's a ~2 seconds hang that prevents me from doing anything (tried scrolling/typing/clicking, nothing).

Any way to see what is actually happening / disable this behavior?

Vertical scrolling glitch

About 1 in every 40 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, it acts like I have clicked UNDER the scroller and starts scrolling down quickly until I release the mouse button. This NEVER happens in Chrome or other programs. It always works properly the next time I drag it.

Potentially related: About 1 in every 75 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, the scroller doesn't stay under my mouse cursor. It moves about half as fast. This makes it impossible for me to scroll to the bottom of the page because my mouse cursor gets to the bottom before the scroller, which means I have to let go and grab the scroller again to finish scrolling down. The scroller always stays with my mouse cursor on the 2nd attempt.

I've attached a pic showing what i'm calling the "scroller"

In the support article about notifications: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/push-notifications-firefox it states: Sites can also use Push to update data in the background even without showing you a notification.

What data does this include?

I'm reluctant to use these notifications at all until I know what they could change without telling me.

I ran into some problems recently as I usually clear out everything that was saved in my internet folder. I go to Tools/Options/Privacy/Security/Clear Data, well, this is about a week, but an INSISTENT 267 bits are REFUSING to go and be let free from my cached web content.

Additionally, I usually run an RKILL scan, a JRT scan, and a Malwarebytes AdwCleaner scan when I've finished logging off, for security reasons. The JRT scan flagged a "staged folder" in my FF profile, and had removed it. The folder had some sort of code in it.

Um, while we're at it, is FF still using IE as a "gateway"? I know at one time it was, but I seem to be also harangued by Searchscopes.

could someone help me out, please.

I'm using FF 76.01 and windows 10.

Thanks so much in advance,

MM.

P.S. also got a report that one of my blog tabs had been breached, with an ad from Avast - is this common?

Hello.

I use 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Xubuntu 20.04 and same thing happens on every computer. After clean system shutdown or restart, Firefox keeps restoring tabs I used. This never happens if I close Firefox first. Also this never happens when I close and reopen firefox in the same session. I tried everything: - obvious "Restore previous session" restore in options - about:config turning various options: browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash browser.sessionstore.restore_tabs_lazily browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_os_restart browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand privacy.clearOnShutdown.sessions - i even created "user.json" with restore line as someone suggested None of these measures helped. I thought that It may be connected to XFCE session store somehow, so I went through disabling that too - no change. No other program happens to do the same. After reboot, when someone starts Firefox, all my tabs from previous session are reopened instantly. This happens on my both Xubuntu workstations, but never happens on my Windows computers. Please help.

Hello,

Firefox 76.0.1 is causing me problems...

For example if I call a PHP program to log out, I use the JavaScript command:

function Logout() {

 self.location = "Root.php?LogOff=Y"

}

No problem there, but when I want to log back in I use:

<form name='detail' method='Post' onsubmit='Root.php'> <input type='text' name='UserId' class='Full' style='border: 0;'> <input type='Password' name='Password' class='Full'>

(The class Full, just sets the width to 100% as this is in a table)

The the JavaScript is simply:

function LogIn() {

 document.detail.submit();

}

Seems simple enough, but the Root.PHP receives:

 LogOff -> Y
 UserId -> <name>
 Password -> <password>

Not what I was expecting!

The only other thing of note is that I have started using local.storage to save information, and this too passes information from previous calls.

Any thoughts?

Thanks, Richard Gamester

Hi,

I'm trying to change the theme (only using standard dark and light themes) from a linux terminal. My attempted routes include changing a user.js file (the rest of the file works), in particular setting extensions.activeThemeID (I've also attempted doing this in about:config, as well as editing the extensions.json file).

I can change the theme by going to add-ons in a browser. This works fine. I was hoping to automate it (it's not the 1980's - clicking three times to change to a default theme seems unnecessary).

Am I missing something that must be changed in about:config or any other file to change the theme? The extensions.activeThemeID changes when changing the theme in add-ons and seems the likely option but does nothing if I change this value myself.
