Ever since I updated to Firefox 96, I have been receiving the error message "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." at times. Refreshing does help. This did not seem to happen with Firefox 95. I am currently on Firefox 96.0.2. I tried restarting the computer, tried refreshing Firefox, tried disabling hardware acceleration, etc., and the issue still persists.

So while using FF, I think it was a combination of too many programs opened and too many tabs (and an old potato PC laptop) suddenly the whole display turned black probably because of all those reasons, i waited a min but nothing, so i shut it down manually in order to restart it.

As i re opened firefox i finished the search that caused the "crash" i guess and only later i realized that all my history (an awful lot) is gone. Tried using an old Windows restore point of december but nothing. After i looked up that history is stored in the places.sqlite file i went into the profile folder and found a places.sqlite.corupt file. Does anyone know how can i repair it ?... Pleaseeee help me retrive my history. Thanks a lot.

Why and how has Google Search been added to my browser opening page?

Has Google bought Mozilla? or have they donated enough for Mozilla to become a proxy Marketing and user acquisition arm of Google?

This happened on my Windows machine and have read the below too.

Brian Fagioli, reporting for BetaNews:

  • The developers of the Ubuntu-based operating system have agreed to accept an undisclosed amount of money from Mozilla in exchange for making significant changes to Linux Mint. This includes removal of modifications to Firefox and a big change for search. The devs share the upcoming changes to Firefox in Linux Mint 19 and higher.
  • The default start page no longer points to https://www.linuxmint.com/start/
  • The default search engines no longer include Linux Mint search partners (Yahoo, DuckDuckGo...) but Mozilla search partners (Google, Amazon, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Ebay...)
  • The default configuration switches from Mint defaults to Mozilla defaults.
  • Firefox no longer includes code changes or patches from Linux Mint, Debian or Ubuntu.

Can you let me know if the above is correct? Cheers.

Not for the first time, I suddenly cannot download any files in firefox (from PDFs to wetransfer links etc.). I have followed every bit of online advice there is. In troubleshoot mode I can download files. However by a process of elimination it is not caused by hardware acceleration, addons or extensions or my avast antivirus. This is really troublesome and I really need to download a lot for work. Performing a refresh every couple of weeks is not the solution.

This problem has been around for at least two years now.

I need to know when a visitor to my site is clicking the back or forward button. The reason is I have a "tabstrip" that hilites the currently selected tab and the target document is displayed in an iframe. If I click the back or forward buttons the page is updated with the last or next document in the iframe, but the tabstrip is not updated to reflect the change. Part of this is due to me not knowing how to update the tabstrip, but also because I don't know how to detect the back or forward buttons being clicked.

So I need to know how to detect those button clicks. Also, in researching this, I noticed that there seems to be an idea that you can't distinguish between the forward and back button, only that a button was clicked. That doesn't make sense given that each button has a specific action that is opposite of the other. I need to know the truth about this.

Finally, as much as I use only Firefox myself, I know there will be others who use other browsers. Is there any difference between detecting the back and forward buttons on other browsers compared to Firefox?

One of the pages I need this for is here

As the title suggests, I just want firefox to be nice to use again. Since its latest update it is far from nice. Too much stuff is set to darkmode, even though I have googled like crazy and fiddled with most, if not all, about:config options to try and restore it.

I will do whatever it takes, but my firefox theme (abstract firefox) must remain intact. Surely there is something I can do in the userChrome.css or whatever it's called.

It is just so very tiring having to fix mistakes made by firefox, that keeps changing stuff for the worse. Changes that nobody ever asked for. I am giving the browser one more chance for old times sake, since I have been using it for 20 years or thereabouts. So please, firefox... stop trying to force your users into using stuff that your staff team or whatever likes to use. Think of your users.

And please help me out.

Thank you.

For several days now, tumblr hasn't been working properly on Firefox. The number that pops up to show how any new notifications I've gotten is frozen at 23. I don't get notifications if I get a new ask or to say how many new posts are on the dashboard. I can receive new asks but I cannot answer them and I cannot send them myself. I can receive direct messages, but I can't send them. I've cleared my cache/cookies. I've ended and started several new sessions. I've turned off XKit, Privacy Badger, HTTPS Everywhere, and uBlock Origin. None of that has fixed the problem. These issues are only happening on Firefox. I logged in on Microsoft Edge and tumblr worked just fine.

Hey Guys,

I am having trouble trying to send tabs between my PC, and my iPhone. I can successfully send a tab from my PC, however, when I attempt to send a tab from my iPhone, it won't show up on my PC.

Things I've tried; - Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox for PC. - Uninstalling/reinstalling Firefox for iPhone. - Signing out then back in on both devices.

Whatever I try, I can only manage to send tabs from the PC to iPhone and not the other way around. When I manually sync from PC, I can (sometimes) see what tabs are open on my phone. I am out of ideas.

Build Versions; PC: 96.0.2 (64-bit) iOS: Firefox Daylight 96.0 (7403)
