Hello everyone,

Is it possible to control Firefox 76 on Linux from D-bus ? I listed all available services with "qdbus" utility, but there is nothing like firefox/mozilla. Also, I browsed source code, and I saw D-bus support seems to be there. Thank you

My Top Sites works well if there is a short name under the tile or I recognize the thumbnail. In other cases I see something like "Websu..." as the title. Hover over that and I should see a tooltip with the long name completed.

Is it possible for Firefox to put tooltips for when the name ends in "...?"

Is there another work-around I can use -- create a thumbnail that better identifies the site is one that comes to mind. Rename the site with a shorter name?

Thank you.

Every time I open Firefox it takes approximately 4 minutes before doing anything. I've a 4 core with 8 gb of RAM, my cpu usage stays at 12-15% and RAM use is 1.2 gb during these 4 minutes. Firefox seems just waiting. It's not freezed, just waiting. I can open as many new tabs I want, type an address and hit ENTER, and FF will show the gray dot moving (like it hasn't reached the network, because then, when it starts to load the page, the dot becomes blue). After FF "wakes up" everything gets normal, I can use it normally. The issue is only after closing and reopening FF. During the 4 minutes sleeping time, the network works, I can ping and use other browsers. I'm on linux mint 19.3, FF is 75 (but I had the same problem with former versions too). I once did a FF reset, and it was ok for the first boot or two. But then I linked my FF sync account (I use it for: bookmarks, tabs, passwords, addons, preferences, not history) and I got back to my problem. As for the addons I only have "multi account containers" and "video download helper" (just 2!). Additionally I enabled the build-in anti tracking feature. I'm sure something is working wrong.. Can you help me??

I access one TLS URL that's secured by user certificate. I had no problem importing the .p12 certificate into my profile's user certificate store ("Your Certificates"), and I could access the URL.

On the TLS URL system, for an unrelated reason, I had to generate a new certificate. My task was to remove the user certificate from my profile's certificate store, and replace with the new certificate.

The replacement was perfect: Delete the old certificate, import the new certificate. Enter the cert password, and see the new certificate, with its new serial ID listed in Firefox's certificate store.

When I try to visit the TLS secured URL, Firefox gives "Secure Connection Failed" and "SEC_ERROR_BAD_SIGNATURE". It says "Peer has an invalid signature."

I'm at a loss how to proceed troubleshooting this.

I've been digging into an issue about the "A web page is slowing down your browser," and it seems that the most frequent explanation for this is corrupt cookies/cache. However, the issue wasn't repeatable on my site. After some digging, I found that its possible for a corrupt `cookies.sqlite` if the max file size has been reached and a suggestion that FF automatically resets this `cookies.sqlite` store when this happens.

I suspect that this issue happened when the user maxed out their cookies, causing a corrupt `cookies.sqlite` file. Then, when they restarted FF, their store had been cleared and they had no problems.

However, I cannot find any documentation about FF behavior when in handling corrupt cookies or resetting the `cookies.sqlite` file. I'm looking for some concrete answers. What is FF's cookie store limit, and what is its behavior (if any) when the store is maxed?

Worth mentioning, this was FF on Linux. I don't know the specs beyond that.

This is not site specific and really a bothersome nuisance. I asked about this before and a suggestion by someone fixed it but I can't find that post.

Hi, I have Firefox 68 (andoid) registered to Firefox Sync with all my credentials. Now I installed on linux Firefox 70, enabled sync for my account but credentials are no more synced. I think it is an issue due to a old Firefox account, created when there were no Firefox Lockwise.

I followed the migration guide but probably I was not able to understand the procedure: I

  • disconnected sync on all my browsers
  • sign in again from my android device with sync using the same email (I've read that is possible)

Help please!

PS: I tried to install Firefox Lockwise but credentials are empty for my account, despite I forced manually sync from my android.

I am trying to get content from washingtonpost.com . They need me to disable tracker blocking. The standard help screen (capped below) says to just click the button labeled "Turn off Blocking for This Site." Only trouble is, no such button actually exists on the information popup screen (Clicking the circled 'i'). The popup screen I get looks exactly like the one in the help, except for the missing button. I have tried all the suggestions in other posts and none of them work. I notice I am not the only one with this problem. Is it possible my install of Firefox is corrupted? But nothing else I have noticed is wrong. I am running Firefox quantum 68.0.1 under Ubuntu xcfe.

Hi, whenever I want to download something, Firefox shows me a Opening window. If I mistakenly select the "Open with" button, a file is downloaded to my /tmp/ directory and then opened with an application, which takes a huge amount of RAM for stuff like iso.

The another thing is that it's very annoying and takes a lot of time if you want to download many files from many websites. You have to manually choose save file for all the files you download, and the "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" option is greyed out.

Is there a way disable the "Opening" window and just download the files I wish to download?

I'm using Firefox 67.0 under MX Linux. My monitor is 25" with a resolution of 1920x1200. With this resolution, the text and icons in Firefox Menu and Toolbars are tiny and almost impossible to read. The Thunderbird add-on Theme and Font Size Changer works reasonably well for Thunderbird, so is there a corresponding add-on for Firefox?

I know that Firefox is largely developed by people who are volunteers, but it seems that a tool, as part of the basic Firefox program, should be available to make these changes without installing add-ons or modifying the code manually. Almost everyone needs to be able to tweak these things at one time or another.

I'm trying to mirror a website, and firefox won't open (local) PHP files, even though they're identical to html files, only with a different suffix. It keeps asking me whether I want to "Save As..." or "Open with". When I try to open them with Firefox, I get the same dialog box...

Is there a way to get Firefox to recognize that it can open PHP files? Or at least treat them as html files? I went through the General Preferences, and even tried to change the default program to Firefox (And even tried "automatically" -- what a mistake!!), and kept getting the same dialog box. checking the code in my text editor showed that it was a simple html document. I would rather not have to go through all my files and change the suffix of every document from "php" to "html". I would think there's a better way. Is there a viewer plugin? or would it just be a fix in General Preferences -> Applications? On my Mac, it would show the document "type" beside the content type, ie. html/text.
