Firefox Kiosk does not appear when I log in but does when I start it manually from the GNOME x-terminal

I have Ubuntu 22.04 (on a Dell Optiplex 3000) with a minimal installation. I downloaded Firefox 125, removed the SNAP Firefox and installed this Firefox with no issue. I can run "firefox --kiosk" and Firefox runs in kiosk mode with no issue.

I have made some changes in the "about:config" part of Firefox. I have also made some changes to the Ubuntu keyboard shortcut list. There is only one user created on this system and I have configured Ubuntu to login this user automatically upon reboot.

However, if I setup Firefox --kiosk to start automatically (I use the gnome-session-properties application to achieve this) and then reboot, Firefox does run, but it does not appear on the screen. If I enter the "switch windows" keyboard shortcut (ALT-TAB), the Firefox kiosk appears.

So, is this something I can fix by changing the Firefox configuration, or is it an Ubuntu configuration change. If so, can anyone tell me what I should do, or have an idea how to debug this?

Whenever I try to download anything, it automatically fails. The problem just started recently and I don't know what could have caused it because I haven't done anything that could affect downloads to my knowledge. Things I've already tried are

  • Reinstalling firefox (including full uninstall via "Revo Uninstaller"
  • Updating firefox to the latest version (127)
  • Disabled all firewalls
  • Chose the save location
  • Disabled all parental controls in windows
  • Chose the "don't enable HTTPS mode" (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1414064)
  • Tried firefox & windows safe mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1442742)
  • Chose a different save location inside my computer (a folder other than downloads)
  • Cleared download history
  • Ran a chkdsk on windows

The thing is that everthing else of firefox works (browsing the web, watching videos, etc), it's only the downloads. It's also not a computer problem I think because I can download on other browsers (such as chrome and pale moon). Any help asap is appreciated.

Is there a way to set a separate theme for the private browsing option? I like being able to visually distinguish between the normal browser and the private one, but enabling a theme seems to set the same visuals for both.

If separate themes are not a thing, perhaps they could be added in a later update?

Thanks for all your time and effort.

After just turning on my computer running Windows 10, I opened Firefox. I open 1 web site and noticed my computer showed a (16) prefix when loading Firefox. I opened the Task Manager and it showed that there were 15 instances of "firefox" running in the background. All showed a UAC Virtulization of "Disabled". But they also showed using 638.8MB of memory. I do not know whether these are necessary files that must run in the background or if the number of files indicates that my system has been hacked and someone else is in my system from outside. Any suggestions as to validity of these files running or how I might confirm that they should be running. I have noticed the number of excessive background files before but the number is never consistent which makes me fear I may have been hacked.

Receiving this error: Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.

My desktop app redirects user to a login screen on Firefox, and I want to automate it using Selenium. My current workflow: 1. Launch Selenium-controlled Firefox browser using GeckoDriver 2. Click on "Login" button on my desktop app. The desktop app launches the login screen on user's OS default browser using the default user profile (in which case I set in profiles.ini to the temp profile copy created by Selenium). 3. (ERROR) Popup on the above error is displayed

Code: import configparser import os

web_driver = selenium_webdriver.Firefox(executable_path='C:\\Users\\mnxl\\.wdm\\drivers\\geckodriver\\win64\\v0.34.0\\geckodriver') profile = web_driver.capabilities['moz:profile']

  1. Path to the Firefox profiles folder

profiles_path = os.path.expanduser(r'~\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox')

  1. Path to the profiles.ini file

profiles_ini_path = os.path.join(profiles_path, 'profiles.ini')

  1. Read the profiles.ini file

config = configparser.ConfigParser() config.read(profiles_ini_path)

  1. Find the section for the profile to set as default

for section in config.sections():

   if config.has_option(section, 'Path') and config.get(section, 'Path') == profile:
       # Set this profile as the default
       config.set(section, 'Default', '1')
   else:
       # Set all other profiles as not default
       config.set(section, 'Default', '0')
  1. Write the changes back to the profiles.ini file

with open(profiles_ini_path, 'w') as configfile:

   config.write(configfile)

I added the Save to Pocket (mini) extension to Firefox 125.0.2 today. When I look at the collection of articles I've saved to Pocket (I've been using Pocket for years) in the browser, I only see 8 articles. But when I open Pocket on my iPhone and iPad, the list of articles I've saved is much more longer (an estimate would be between 50 and 75 articles saved to Pocket). I haven't found any articles in Mozilla support to help me solve this. Thanks
