I have a System 76 laptop running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. The LTS (Long Term Support) ended years ago with Firefox 66. All of that works fine still. My problem is: 1. The world is telling me to upgrade my browser. 2. Mozilla tells me "Note: If you use your Linux distribution's packaged version of Firefox, you will need to wait for an updated package to be released to its package repository. This article only applies if you installed Firefox manually (without using your distribution's package manager)." 3. There will never be an updated package because LTS has ended. 4. IS THERE A WAY TO MANUALLY INSTALL A NEWER BROWSER LIKE FIREFOX 123?

Highlighting with the mouse is full of glitches. It never works right. It either stops highlighting or highlights opposite the direction I'm moving the mouse.

I need to summarize a recent medical encounter; the hospital's 234 pages are out of temporal order and have many repeats. I want to put it in time order and delete the repeats. It's a PDF, and since I can't use Acrobat anymore, I read PDFs in Firefox.

Not once have I been able to mark a section of text properly. There seem to be some forbidden areas: I highlight what I can, transfer it, then go back for the rest, but it won't highlight.

Ctl-A highlights it. I often do that and delete the excess, but that's inconvenient.

I can open the same file in xpdf and mark without trouble, but I don't like xpdf.

For this doc, I converted the PDF to text with pdf2text, but it's harder to read. I identify target text in Firefox, then find it in the text version, use emacs to copy from the original to my summary.

I've tried a fresh battery in the mouse. Every other app works.

I usually have firefox running. Sometimes I want to display a file on my computer in firefox. Until today (don't know what happened today) I could; firefox would add a new tab for display of that file. Now it gives me an error, reports, 'Firefox is already running, but not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile'. This is inconvenient.

Dear Firefox Support Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to seek assistance with a persistent issue I have been experiencing in my Firefox browser. Despite my efforts to troubleshoot, I have encountered problems with various animations within the browser.

The specific issues include:

  Text Selection Animation: The animation for text selection does not function.
   Element Overflow Scroll: The animation for scrolling within elements in overflow does not work.
   Developer Menu Resizing (F12): The animation for resizing the developer menu (F12) is not functioning.
   Button Hover Effects: When hovering over elements such as buttons, the expected CSS :hover modifications do not occur.
   The cursor remains the same regardless of where it is moved. This is particularly problematic as the cursor often retains the icon corresponding to editable text even when over buttons.

Additionally, there are complications when resizing the browser window. Upon resizing, the window seems to "half" itself, making it impossible to drag or further resize. This behavior also hides the three standard buttons present in all windows.

An additional symptom is that when I initially open the browser, it functions perfectly. However, during usage, the first indication of a problem is the disappearance of the mouse cursor, requiring movement for a couple of seconds. From that point onward, all mentioned issues begin to manifest.

I have taken several steps to address these issues, including:

   Complete Firefox Reinstallation: I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox from scratch in an attempt to resolve the problem.
   ESR Version Testing: I experimented with the Extended Support Release (ESR) version of Firefox, but the issues persisted.
   Hardware Acceleration Disable: I disabled hardware acceleration to check if it was causing the problems, but the animations still did not work correctly.

Despite these efforts, the problems persist, and I am reaching out to seek your expert guidance in resolving these issues. Your assistance in this matter is highly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Best regards,

Ivan Beltrame

With increasing frustration, I'm am trying top retain certain cookies when deleting other cookies and history. Instructions I read say use "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox closes" with exceptions noted, and do not toggle "clear history when Firefox closes." Except that in my Firefox settings, they work in tandem - the choices are both on or both off. I can't turn one on and the other off. Under manage exceptions, I am entering the entire website address with the https. Any suggestions? Thanks. Joe Markarian

I am not able to find an option to disable it once and for all - and I am not able to set it up as my default browser (professional reasons).

4 3 24 Hello Novice here so apologies if confused. For years have been able to use NATIONAL EXPRESS COACH UK SITE to book travel, last successful use was 19.10.2023 but 9.2.2024 site would not allow me to enter my account nor clicking 'forgotten password' option failed. Seaching via FIREFOX/GOOGLE for ACCOUNT LOG IN does not load any pages, just this https://book.nationalexpress.com/my-account/#/profile/view or https://book.nationalexpress.com/my-account/ if the above pasted page 'headers' help. NATIONAL EXPRESS COACH UK SITE allows booking pages to load but refuses to allow anything related to Customer Account, where one would not have to pay booking fees. Their latest reply is below: 'With regard to the password reset function, from the home page, after clicking you wish to sign in, followed by selecting Existing Customer, when pressing Forgotten Password a new web page should load. In order to isolate this process, one method would be to use the Incognito private function of the web browser. It may be called InPrivate, Private or similar depending on the browser, Chrome, Bing, Safari, Firefox etc. If you can go through the National Express logging in procedure, this should work. Also, could you ensure your web browser is running the most current version too. 'Another option you could try is to use a different web browser to see if that alleviates the problem." Using FIREFOX PRIVATE does not solve the problem, my system shows MOZILLA FIREFOX FOR LINUX MINT mint-001 -1.0 is what the last MINT UPDATE has provided, so presume the most recent version, so the only remaining change would be to install CHROME but why would FIREFOX suddenly fail to show such pages related to the COACH ACCOUNT LOG-IN in Feb 2024 when Oct 2023, no problems occurred? Have never had CHROME installed, as used FIREFOX since 2011. Anyone else experienced this problem OR could advise on the matters. Thanks in advance.

I'm using i3 window manager and normally popups would have some id or class that can be used to latch on and prevent the focus stealing but the windows created now do not have any such marker.

There is "show in folder" menu for file in downloads. And it will launch my file manager at the parent folder for the selected download file.

There are so many files in my downloads folder, so i would like the specific file to be autoselected. My file manager support this if i pass the filename as parameter in the commandline.

However, seems that firefox only pass the parent folder path to my file manager in the "show in folder". However can i customize firefox so that it will pass the full file name to my file manager when i click "show in folder", and my file manager will open the parent folder with the specific file autoselected.

I have a Firefox account in order to use the sync capabilities. After a sync between desktop and phone the desktop bookmarks are on my phone in an extra folder "desktop bookmarks" and vice versa the phone bookmarks are in folder "Mobile bookmarks" in my desktop Firefox. Is this normal behaviour? I would expect them in one common folder to have a seamless synching.

Since this week I have been unable to access flightradar24 web site due to a problem with WebGL. It tells me that I need a compatible browser e.g. Firefox

I am running Linux Mint 21.3 Cinnamon on and I7 processor with a NVIDIA Corporation GK208B [GeForce GT 710] graphics card.

I have edited the about:config file as follows:

webgl.force_enabled TRUE

but noted a collection of failed messages as shown on the attached screen shot.

This web site is still accessible using chromium on the same computer, suggesting that there isn't a hardware problem.

Dear Mozilla Support, [please forgive my poor English - FRENCH is my mother tongue]

CONTEXT - I use a Linux (Peppermint) Live DVD to surf the Web, always on the same laptop. I do NOT use any hard disk inside that laptop, just the Live DVD spinned by a DVD player. Only the RAM stores data => fresh new distro for every session - years ago, I created a Firefox account, and the Sync worked perfectly, and allowed me to back up my Bookmarks AND my Opened Tabs (they are stored in Mozzila's cloud, and after each sign in and a sync, they reappear in the left panel). Regarding the Synced Tabs, the left panel used to store all the previous Live DVD sessions (generally with the device's name: peppermint's Linux... (IIRC). - i do NOT use several devices, and do NOT wish to sync date acreoss them. I use Sync to get my Bookmarks and Opened Tabs synced across successive Firefox sessions, day after day. I worked perfectly well.

PROBLEM Since a few weeks, I noted that despite login and sync, on the left panel - Synced Tabs are now empty: no tabs synced at all => so I cannot seamlessly find back my opened tabs from one session to another (if I switch off my laptop, then later restart a new Live DVD session) - see screenshot = https://imgur.com/LO6jWLYl.png - Bookmarks are nevertheless still perfectly synced (see screenshot = https://i.imgur.com/Td0nbY2.png)


Many thanks for you help. Kind regards from Europe.

I am using Bookworm 12.5.0 Debian with KDE current and Firefox 115.8.0esr long-term version. All appear current. Spiral Linux is the effective shortcut to the Debian loading in its simplified installation. Firefox opens fine, but the field of display cannot be controlled well. I can use Ctl + 0 to somewhat manage, but otherwise any cursor movement sees the display go crazy. Trying to get the cursor over any point is simply impossible. I am using a different computer now to post this with the virtually identical software. This Intel pad differs from the Beelink Ryzen unit which is the unit going berserk. Is there anything that you can tell me other than the Ctl+0 to modify the operation of the unit. I had swapped out the monitor on the Beelink though I have no idea that the monitor is the problem as I do not have the same issue withDiscover or the desktop or any of the other software. I can open up Konsole and use that or open up OpenOffice or OfficeLibre with no similar issue. Would a different monitor act like that?

Video on some websites is choppy after updating to a newer version of Firefox (115.8.0esr). I have attempted to upload a video of the problem but it seems only still images are allowed and this doesn't illustrate the problem. An example website where this occurs is https://www.fiat.it but there are plenty of other examples. It looks as if the playback is jumping forwards and backwards between frames. Strangely Youtube videos seem OK.

Some information which may be of use

OS: OpenSuse Leap 15.5 HW: Dell Precision 7510 with Nvidia Quadro M2000M video card and driver version 550.54.14

I have also noticed that when starting Firefox from the command line I see frequent messages like

Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index2/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/cache/index3/size Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu/present Sandbox: attempt to open unexpected file /sys/devices/system/cpu Sandbox: unexpected multiple open of file /proc/cpuinfo

Probably not relevant but I included it just in case it is useful

Any help you can offer with debugging would be much appreciated, thanks

After updating my openSUSE Firefox package from version 122 to 123 every frame inside each window started to have weird grey overlay of scrollable area. I failed to find any description of such a thing happening, let alone how to get rid of it. I tried removing build-in distro-default preferences and had complete audit of all my custom preferences in about:config but none changed that behavior. I even updated to 124b4 but this also haven't changed anything. Naturally, nuking entire profile is not an option, I might as well replace the whole browser. So, how do I get rid of this thing?
