I've been having major problems with cursor control by mouse wheel and keyboard on the Ubuntu install. I've improved it by alterations in about:config, but it's still not right.

I have this install on Windoze Vista that works perfectly, through no fault of my own, just as installed.

Can I simply copy the file from the Windows Vista install to the Ubuntu install to fix it?

If so, what is the file name (about:config ?), and where is it located?

Thanks!

How do I make the toolbars smaller? Since upgrading to the latest version, they are twice as tall as they used to be. The text in them is still a reasonable size but the toolbars take up twice the vertical space they used to. This has nothing to do with the size of the page I'm viewing so Ctrl+ or Ctgrl- has no effect.

Thanks for any help. Attached is a screen shot showing the wasted space at the top of my screen with the new toolbars.

Both firefox and thunderbird crash directly to the "Mozilla Crash Reporter" on startup. This also happens in safe mode.

So far I re-installed firefox through the package management (first completely removed it including configuration files, then installed it again). The profile created by the re-install is still completely empty, there is no data from the original profile and no plugins.

The button to automatically add troubleshooting information doesn't work for me (probably because I'm using chrome now), so I'll try to add relevant information. If anything is missing, please ask.

Firefox version: 55.0.2 Crash ID: bp-ced2e336-0d1a-40a4-9f45-e88b70170913 OS: fully updated Ubuntu 17.04 (64bit) Graphics: Intel HD 5500

Firefox crashing certain websites/Ubuntu

Hello everyone.

I'm trying this again. Firefox crashed when I was logged in so I'm doing this in Chromiun now. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit. Firefox is 56.0 64 bit. About one week ago, I received a notice about an Ubuntu update so I installed the update as always. After the update, on certain websites, they start to load then Firefox crashes. I was on this site eailer and typing this when I opened another tab to see what plugins were installed and it crashed. I was using Adblock, Noscripts and other plug-ins. I disabled each one, one at a time, and it still crashed. I then did a refresh on Firefox to have only the minimum orginal plug-ins installed. It still crashes. I then totally removed Firefox and deleted the /.mozilla directory and reinstalled. No change.

Now, The default plugins are: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc & Shockwave Flash

    The default Extensions are: Safe Browsing Version 4 (temporary add-in) & Ubuntu Modifications Legacy

If I disable them each by hand, Firefox will still crash. If I disable them by restarting in safe mode, Firefox will work as normal. Here are at least two sites that won't load:

Hope this helps. Many thanks all. Mike

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and after the latest update I ran on Firefox, loading a webpage left me with a white screen/page in the browser. I removed Firefox, reinstalled, started it up and had the same results. After that, I removed the ~/.firefox folder, supposedly containing user and browser settings that are kept. This fixed the browser, but I noticed my laptop fan working at full speed. I opened the System Monitor and saw that a core is running @ 100%. I'm attaching two screen shots of this, opening 2 tabs (facebook and soundcloud) and keeping them open. After closing the browser the processor goes back to idle. I'm wondering whether someone could help guide me.

Best Regards

I'm using FireFox on ubuntu lts 16.04 as a kiosk making use of a very handy add-on. The system was looked down to prevent anyone for browsing anything but localhost. Now anyone can jump on my kiosk and browse / download anything they want. It is no way more secure than what it was.

Even after using the about:config options the updates still update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will find a more appropriate browser option for the kiosk but for now I'd really like a way to stop the update short of shutting everything down.

This sounds more like an issue with Microsoft but it probably isn't because other browsers like Google Chrome doesn't have this issue. The domain "attachment.outlook.office.net" is unreachable/unresolvable in Firefox (58 and earlier versions) in Ubuntu 17.10 64-bit. All the attachments that are delivered with Outlook are hosted in this domain and whenever I check Outlook e-mails using Firefox in Ubuntu the attachments are unavailable. They are there in the e-mails, sort of, but they are shown like shortcuts that don't lead to anything.

Whenever I end up browsing online with Firefox, from time to time, Yahoo Answer crops up with no warning and is not even installed on my system nor is it an add-on, I am wondering if Yahoo Answer Browser is actually a virus interfering with peoples experience online and if it is being deliberately done by those who run Yahoo. As it has hampered me on many occasions with the research I am doing. Asking me to sign up for a network I quit over 10 Years ago of the problems it caused back then, its also why I switched to Mozilla Firefox, which is much more stable.

https://uk.search.yahoo.com/yhs/search;_ylt=AwrIRlnFD35asAUAIZZ3Bwx.?p=help+on+getting+rid+of+unwanted+Yahoo+Answers+Browser&fr2=sb-top&hspart=ddc&hsimp=yhs-linuxmint&type=__alt__ddc_linuxmint_com.

This is why I feel Yahoo Answer has become an internet virus, it is everywhere where you do not need it.

I have not used my PC for three weeks and today I tried to log in to my Amazon account, but every time I tried to do the login it crashes, I also found it to crash in other websites like Reddit and the AMD Support Site. It is Firefox 58.0.1 64-bit in Ubuntu 16.04. I tried refreshing firefox and nothing, it also removed all extensions leaving only the default plug-ins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc & Shockwave Flash. If I disable them manually the websites will still crash. The only way Firefox will work normally is if I restart it in Safe Mode. I also tried installed the new 59 64-bit Beta version, but is causing the same problems.

The latest submitted crash reports are:

bp-5f7cae12-c429-4dd7-b794-8e4cf0180210 bp-8b31fc05-ede6-4d6c-8cd9-10efc0180210 bp-dd409298-45fb-43bb-8fa5-a02d00180210

I'm a web developer that setup a local environment under Linux Mint.

For some reason, Firefox Developer Edition (59.0b7 64-bit) cannot access sites on my localhost. The interesting thing is that Firefox Quantum 58.0.1 (64-bit) is showing these local sites perfectly fine. I've tested other browsers, including Konqueror and Lynx, and these work fine also.

I've setup my environment so that apache2 can serve pages from a 'wildcard' virtual host. Using symlinks, I can link my project files to another directory that functions as the web root. Thus:

/home/me/business/projects/client/index.html => /home/me/business/www/client/index.html

Navigating to http://client.dev brings up the page perfectly in Firefox 58, Konqueror, and Lynx.

However, Firefox Developer Edition, AND Google Chrome, both fail to load the page. The URL changes from http://client.dev to https://client.dev and throws this message:

"Unable to connect

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at client.dev."

I've played around with the about:config settings for Network.dns.* but nothing seems to help. Also, the apache logs do not produce anything useful.

Your input will be greatly appreciated.

Ubuntu 16.04, Firefox 59.01, fresh install. No bookmarks toolbar available. When going under customize, click the toolbar bitton, nothing shows up. This is consistent with three fresh installs. I prefer having the tool bar readily available, preferably under the "view" "toolbars" menu. Need the bookmarks toolbar. I can't figure out why that was changed!

I had screen tearing and graphical glitches when browsing. [layers.acceleration.force-enabled = true] solved screen tearing, but I still had some graphical glitches from time to time which now seem to have been fixed with [layers.force-active = true].

Could this be a working configuration on the long term? Currently it is running like a charm...

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and had already turned off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling without the desired results before trying the above-mentioned things. I also played around with the xorg.config.d settings of the OS...

Best regards Mike

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04, running Firefox 64.

I've tried importing directly through the wizard from chrome, and from chromium. I've tried importing through an html file (the html file itself is fine). Just literally nothing happens. I've tried running FF from console to see if there were any error messages, nope nothing.

Does this just not feature just not work at all?

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Thank You!
