I have moved from Centos Linux to Rocky Linux and could not play Perron FM on onlineradiobox.com whereas I could on an Ubuntu Linux machine. It turned out I had to install ffmpeg (dnf ffmpeg) on the OS to support the right codec. The error was (in Firefox developer view, F12): HTTP “Content-Type” of “audio/aac” is not supported. Load of media resource https://onlineradiobox.com/json/za/perronfm/play?platform=web failed. Hope this helps someone.

Firefix 93 No "Send Tab" Option, Unable to See Synced Tabs

I've just set up Firefox Sync, but it is only working one way. I can see my computer's tabs from my phone but I cannot see my phone's tabs from the computer - if I use the quick access "Show tabs from other devices" it just spins a loading wheel with "Syncing".

Also, the "Send Tab" option when you right click a tab does not appear at all. Sending a tab from the phone to computer does not result in anything appearing on my computer.

Everything is set to sync on both devices, and I have tried to sync it manually. Both versions are up to date.

Hi! so I installed Kubuntu 20.10 after using it 'directly from the cd' for some time. since, all data would be lost every time i restart, i would keep a copy of a '.mozilla' file i would find in the system. Everytime i start the OS, i would first create a folder and copy paste it, so firefox would start right where i left it off. this worked, until i decided to make Kubuntu permanent. at first things were going good, but after sometime, my OS would stop recognizing my headphones and audio port completely. at first i blamed it on my OS and went about doing somethings here and there to adjust by. but looking back, i had installed some DRM to play some video on the net. so in a desperate fix, i replaced the current .mozilla file with a backup i had. the thing worked like a charm and my audio was fixed and everything was going ok, except for the occasional fixes so that my OS would channel the audio to the right output. that is, until the problem rise again! this time, i hadn't installed anything like i did previously, so i replaced the .mozilla file again and it worked! but i can't keep doing this and i had also faced the same problem in my windows, resulting my change in OS in the first place (I think its the same issue, because whatever i did didn't fix it and windows is more sophisticated that i wouldn't know). I don't know if this much info is too much or too less or that if i should post this here or in any other forums, but i would really appreciate it if i got a solution! Thankyou!

The proton changes might make for a better smartphone experience, but it really trashes operations on computers. In case you are wondering why firefox's share of the browser market continues to slide, upgrades like "proton" are the main reason.

The documentation says to use F11. F11 was removed from ChromeOS. The Full Screen Button on the keyboard will take Firefox out of full screen, but when you try to use it to put Firefox in Full Screen, the window gets slightly larger, and then goes back to its original size.

Other applications seem to be able to go to full screen using the Full Screen key that are running under Linux. For instance, gvim, thunar, meld, and gnucash all will go into full screen with the Full Screen Key.

There is a known issue for some i3 users that when we click the right-mouse button, the context menu will pop up in a position where the first item in the menu is already highlighted, so when the right mouse button is released, it automatically "selects" that item. So if we want to copy a link, for example, we have to be careful to move the mouse before releasing the button or that link will immediately be opened in a new tab.

What some of us have done in the past is to create a userChrome.css file setting a top (and/or left) margin for that menu, which fixes the issue.

In the latest version(s?) of Firefox, this no longer works (but other userChrome.css rules I have set up continue to work), so I'm assuming that the ID of the context menus has been changed. What is the ID now?

Hello, I've had this issue for a long time but now it actually bugged me enough to ask about it.

Let's say I have an app with one set of credentials at https://website1.xyz.com

I also have another web app at https://webmail.xyz.com

Firefox only offers to remember credentials for xyz.com so whenever i access any of those websites above i have to juggle between credentials.

Is it possible for firefox to remember passwords separate for whole FQDN?

Cannot get rented/paid Youtube or Netflix video to run. Message "! Sorry, there was an error licensing this video" pops up onYoutube screen every time when hitting play button. "Free" Youtube videos work just fine, paid content gets this message. Have firefox-9.5.0.2.ta.bz2, use Linux updated software. Followed all previous suggested Support, cannot seem to find fixes that included DRM, Safemode switch, etc. Thanks for previous help, still stuck... anymore ideas appreciated. Also, difference between running "normal and beta", please explain, and how to know "differences?"

Receiving the following message when trying to log onto well know and compliant crypto website:

403 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. Request blocked. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner. If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

Never had this problem in recent past, only after updating Firefox to 93 (64-bit) Linux Ubuntu 20.4. I DON'T USE CLOUDFRONT. So what else may be the issue? Thank you.

I need to automate the deployment of Firefox along with the extensions. I put three extensions (uBlock, Translate Web Pages, and Auto Tab Discard) in the /usr/share/mozilla/extensions/{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}/. All extensions load normally, except Auto Tab Discard. When running firefox with the -jsconsole option, I see what the screenshot shows (the message "Invalid addon ID"). But the installation to user profile is successful. I add the extension ID to manifest.json, and get the following output in the console: addons.xpi-utils WARN addMetadata: Add-on {c2c003ee-bd69-42a2-b0e9-6f34222cb046} is invalid: Error: File /usr/share/mozilla/extensions/{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}/{c2c003ee-bd69-42a2-b0e9-6f34222cb046} does not contain a valid manifest(resource://gre/modules/addons/XPIInstall.jsm:669:11) What can go wrong?

System: Debian 11 (bullseye) Firefox version: 91.4.1esr (amd64)

If you need any other information, please ask, I will write it down.

What is the minimum set of files that I can recreate a FF user profile from?

For example, the official docs say to backup/migrate a user profile by copying the whole directory, but the I'm not interested in the `Crash Reports/` directory, history or any session information.

Based on a post I saw some time ago about Thunderbird user profiles, I would expect that only a few files are actually needed (off the top of my head from the TB example, possibly `cert9.db`, `extensions.json` and `prefs.js`), but I can't find the post again now to double-check and I'm not sure how well it would apply to FF.

So, what files do I need to copy over to a new user profile to retain my:

  1. extensions and their preferences
  2. Firefox preferences
  3. bookmarks

Few days ago I've got an email from my provider informing mi that, a lot of spam is send from my address and threatening to block mi if I do not remedy this. I've spoken to their support team and they advised mi to change to another browser since they think it is the problem. I don't know what to do, being the Firefox user for more then 20 years I'm very reluctant to change. Any advice will be highly appropriated.

Best regards A.Baranski
