Mozilla Firefox for linux Mint 99.0.1 (64 bit) - mint-001


Using Outlook web, when viewing pdf documents, it displays strange symbols (incorrect font sets are probably used).

I point out that using Chrome the problem does not arise.

I also installed the microsoft fonts thinking it might solve the problem I attach illustrative image.

Best Regards. Salvatore

A lot of times while coding I press Ctrl+S to save Visual Studio Code and update live server (while watching on firefox the result). The problem is that when I'm focused on Firefox Ctrl+S pops up the Save Page window and (if I held Ctrl+S for more than a split second) it crashes (probably due to multiple popups becoming unresponsive). The mouse can't click to cancel the pop ups for saving the page nor interact it. I have to kill the firefox process and restart it. I've been looking into disabling Ctrl+S shortcut in Firefox with no success (extensions are deprecated or require too many permissions I'm not comfortable with).

Would someone help me to disable Ctrl+S or enlighten me on how to not have firefox crash every time I accidentally press Ctrl+S?

Thanks!

I've been having issues with the themes on the Firefox Browser. Almost all themes forces dark-mode on the browser. Since update 100 it no longer effects websites, but it still affects the browser (menues etc) despite me having the settings locked on light-mode.

For a few months now I can't upload anything larger than 500 MB on Google Drive. I did talk to GD support and it worked fine with Chrome and Chromium. So whatever is causing this problem, it's in Firefox. I tried with a clear Firefox (one with no extensions by deleting /.mozilla) but it's still the same - the upload starts but then stops within the first 30 seconds. Ping and traceroute are all perfectly fine to google servers, no losses, so it's not the connection either.

Firefox is the latest stable version: 101.0.

Clicking the back button does not usually take me back to Google search results. When I do a Google search and click on one of the resulting links, it's often (but not always, oddly enough) as if I've opened the link in a new tab with no browsing history. I can continue to click on links and build the tab's history, but the oldest url in the tab history is the one I got to after the Google search results page. To get to the Google page, I have to open my full browsing history.

If it's just my problem, I'll just keep doing that, but I appreciate any ideas. Maybe it's how Google redirects? Is there a setting that could affect this? Some of my settings are inherited from Ubuntu Studio.

Thanks.

Noticed that silent printing doesn't work starting from new Firefox 78. Now I can't even find "print.always_print_silent" settings in about:config using this instruction:

   Set up the receipt printer as your default printer in the Devices/Printers screen.
   In Firefox, type in “about:config” and hit Enter.
   A dialogue box will appear, press “I’ll be careful, I promise.”
   Right click, select New | Boolean.
   Type in: print.always_print_silent
   Select True, then OK.

Could you please, maybe this setting was renamed or deleted?

I installed Pop OS on my AMD Ryzen 3200G computer (with 16G RAM). Sometimes I have horizontal lines and glitches appearing inside the browser. Especially when scrolling and with webpages with commercials. I don't have this kind of behaviour in my other much older computers. Is this related to AMD CPU?

Occasionally network connections will stop,meaning that I won't be able to connect to a website and websites that I'm on (like Youtube stops buffering but video keeps playing) won't load new content. When I click on a extension I don't see the extension menu,and only a white bar underneath the extension. This usually lasts around 1 minute and happens daily.

I'm trying to print this page (https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin.html), but firefox only prints out the first page, then stops. (Here's a small test version of the same page: https://eecaunt.github.io/kanji-sakuin-small.html)

You can see in the picture that it gets cut off.

Here's the pdf of the picture: https://mega.nz/file/6wwBUIaC#swNET5o7oGArqOuhxLqGhsPKElxznIe2aqvI0TFKO5E

If you see weird overlapping text, then just reload the page. idk why firefox sometimes doesnt finish loading the page…

As an aside: How do I keep the local links (that are in the webpage) in the PDF that Firefox generates?

This has been an ongoing bug with FF; I found search results here that are a decade old! And it's a big bug! Here's why: Unit: Linux Mint 20-C on a Vivobook using FF 80.0.1 (64-bit) 1: about:preferences > Applications > mailto > Firefox 2: about:preferences > Startup > Restore previous session 3: I have no other browser on my laptop (which is where this occurred).

In testing by clicking an email link, it went into that new tab open loop (at a rate of about 2 tabs per second), because what is now obvious, is FF browser cannot be an email client; at least, not as it is, and has been. I tried to launch it in a variety of ways (e.g. private; restart with add-ons disabled), but no matter what, the loop would reopen the browser, and continue the loop. I had to restart my laptop in safe mode just to use it.

So, I uninstalled FF and reinstalled it, launched it, and again it immediately looped uncontrolled. So, I again booted in safe mode, uninstalled FF, deleted all FF associated folders on my laptop, then reinstalled it. Fixed! Wow, that's just about as buggy as a computer can get! As the only browser, this created a serious conundrum. Thankfully I'm on Linux so I could install another browser brand if need be.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-repeatedly-opens-empty-tabs-or-windows

I finally found this page, after the fact, but this issue should not be a problem to begin with: Bug! Filing a bug report has been done multiple times over the last decade, with no resolution, so why do it again? Logic dictates that If this bug cannot be fixed, just eliminate this as a choice in the next version. Using FF (synced) on 4 different devices, I had to check them all and undo that setting! Fair warning to all. And most will not be as determined to stay with FF; they'll uninstall it, quietly, and just use another browser. FYI

Why add-ons won't start with Firefox? Every time I need to manually disable and enable extensions Privacy Badger, uBlockOrigin (Privacy out of the box extensions) for it to be working, that is, they don't work upon start up. I have deleted the .mozilla folder in my Linux machine to reset firefox and it starts with add-ons only one time; when starting a second time, add-ons don't appear in the toolbar yet they are "enabled" but not working. As previously stated, I need to enable them manually.
