Setting background color in the "appearance" section has no effect for me.

According to various help articles, I should be able to export my logins and passwords using the Settings- logins and passwords and then click on the three dots in the upper right. That should display a menu with an option to export. In my case, when I click on the three dots I get only these options: Preferences, Help, Lockwise for Android, Lockwise for iPhone/iPad. There is no option to export anywhere on the page. How can I backup and logins so that I can load them on my new computer? As above, Firefox version is 72.0.2 and I am using Linux Mint 19.3.

I've only experienced this on Firefox, but while watching multiple videos/twitch streams, video playback becomes very choppy and laggy. Actually, firefox in its entirety becomes laggy. This is not a problem when using chrome/chromium, and my PC is more than powerful enough to handle this, with a rtx 2060 and an i5-10500. On chrome I've watched 4 streams on twitch at once with no issues, but on Firefox it starts becoming choppy with only 2 open. Anyone know how to fix this? I don't really want to use chrome anymore. I'm currently running Pop! OS 21.04, with Firefox version 89.0.2.

Are those buttons (behind the "page actions" one) supposed to be definitively absent from version 90 on?

They seemed to me one of the most intelligent features in Firefox interface. Some can be added under "customize" option, but copy link and pint tab are not.

Is this removal based on the idea that addons are supposed to provide the same actions anyway?

Sometimes when I start Firefox maximized. The whole window has an offset on the display (to the mouse).

So you have to click as if the window would be over the full display height, but it starts lower.

Clicking on windowed, does correct the problem, then you can maximize again (Which also works)

Hello everyone,

I believe I asked this about a year back, and the answer is that is wasn't possible.

I would like a specific behaviour on firefox. That, whenever I open it, it does the exact same thing. It opens a single new window. That it never ever tries to restore the last session. That it always starts fresh.

Preferably even if it "crashed", I tend not to close the browser but shut down with the tabs and apps open.

Intuitively this sounds to me like it should be easy to set, but I haven't been able to find a way.

Also, if possible I would like the rest of history to work. I find that history is useful, it's the session specifically I'd like it to forget / not try to resotre.

Thanks,

Sashin

Firefox Nightly cannot be found in the 'Software' store, so probably the only way to download it is by going to the website and getting a tar.bz2 file. I got that, extrated it and placed it in the/opt folder, made an application shortcut, added an icon, and now it's working like a normal app. The problem arises when it tries to auto-update. Firefox Nightly updates very frequently, sometimes more than once per day, and on windows, I used to get a notification saying that a new update is released, and if i wanted to install it. Clicking yes, Firefox would update and restart within moments, and restore all my tabs and windows seamlessly. Here on Linux, I have to manually download the new tar.bz2 file, extract it, replace it in the specified folder, and launch Firefox Nightly again, and again and again usually once per every alternate day, whenever the new update comes. Is there a solution for this? Will Firefox someday release a .deb file for easy installation and updates? My PC : Dell Optiplex 3070 OS : Zorin OS 16 Core (based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS)

Some have reported that the 90.0 update has messed with the Menu Bar text colour. In the "Dark" theme, the tabs are black, the Menu Bar is black and the Menu Bar text is black. I can confirm this on Linux Mint 20.1 and Win 10 21H1. I Also confirmed it to be working correctly on ver 89 for both Mint and Win. I also confirmed that the update for ver 89 turned on automatic updates for Firefox (Linux and Win) without notifiying me that it was changing my settings and ver 90 appears to no longer allow user control of updates.

Also, About Mozilla Firefox, Ver 90.0 (64-bit), says it's for Linux Mint 1.0 Is it possible that this is the reason the Menu Bar is messed-up in the Dark Theme?

Hi, some shortcuts are so generally known and used everywhere and the fact that Firefox intercepts them changing their behavior may be confusing. Let's take Control B for example: it is generally used (e.g. by every online editor or composer, like Gmail ) to set a bold font at the selected text. In Firefox this triggers instead opening bookmarks list, which is highly confusing. Shouldn't this shortcut be disabled by default? Or at least create an extremely evident (e.g. in the welcome page after install) way to disable it. Thank you

I am the webmaster for a church website. As you will see about the collected data on my computer, I work on a Linux computer. Because of the pandemic, the church has been worshipping using livestream video run from the church's website. To aid parishioners with the service, we post pdfs of the Service Bulletin, Readings for the Day, and other aids to participate in the service.

Up until, I think, Firefox 87, in testing the webpage before publishing, I was able to open the pdf links in a new tab. Now, when I try to test the pdf links, Firefox prompts me to save the pdf and I cannot view it online. Given that the pdfs were generated on my computer and exist in my files, It is somewhat ridiculous that I'm being prompted to save the pages.

However, because I also have a Windows machine, I know that this is not happening on all of Firefox, just on the Linux version,

How can I alert Firefox to get this fixed. When I'm not acting as a webmaster, I have occasion to click on a pdf link and it is annoying that it will not display in the browser and and opens up a "save" box.

  1. The First Image is of the URL bar. If you look closely, some of the parts are chipped.
  2. The Second Image is of a Button. It's chipped in all sides.
  3. The Third Image is a string of dots and hyphens that I've selected with my cursor. It's weirdly torn in the middle.

The Issue is on both Firefox Developer Edition and the normal Firefox. Both are the latest versions. Both are installed on my OS.

I'm on Parrot OS 4.11. I've tried changing the window compositor which is Metacity(Marco) but that doesn't solve the issue. Kernel is 5.10.0-6parrot1-amd64. I'm running on integrated graphics. No third-party graphics driver.

I have Ubuntu installed too and the problem isn't there in Ubuntu. So It's in Parrot. I heavily use Firefox for Web Surfing and Development.

All of them are fresh installs from the official website.
