The profile folder on the new installation is to be replaced with that from the old. So far so good, I've copied the profile folder from Windows and now want to exchange it for the profile folder on the new Ubuntu computer. Problem is that this is the very latest Ubuntu version (only a few weeks old) and there IS no profiles folder in Firefox!

What there is, is a profiles.ini file but I am reluctant to put it in there because it does not appear to have anything to do with the contents of the ex-windows profile folder.

There is an option to create a new folder but I'm not at all sure what this would do.

Hope you can help

Blessed be Karma

Dear mozilla community,

I cannot get firefox to start, and I need help to troubleshoot this. What I already did:

  • remove and reinstall (apt)
  • rename ~/.mozilla to trigger recreation
  • start using the command line
  • start in safe mode

The only symptoms are <defunct> processes (see screenshot).

I need more information to find out what went wrong. Where can I find this?


Details

  • apt
  • firefox_78.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~mt1_amd64.deb
  • Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia

Good day, there is such a question, is it planned to release (or port) a Firefox browser for Ubuntu Touch? Unfortunately, the only browser available is "Morph", and it does not meet the requirements of many UT users. I'd love to see your browser on this platform, as convenient as for android and ios. Regards.

In my settings I have Firefox set to open PDFs using the app 'okular' (see screenshot). In my file browser, PDFs open in 'Okular' (see screenshot). However, when I click a pdf in the Firefox downloads pane, it opens with 'GNU Image Manipulation Program'. Why is this, and how can I change it to 'Okular'?

I'm running latest version of Kubuntu, with current updates.

While using Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS and FF 71 When I go to www.Pluto.tv a free TV site and leave it running for about 40 minutes or more the message " a script on this page may be busy" this always happens both on Ubuntu and another Linux system. this problem does not occur on my Mac OS. the problem when left alone the CPU goes very high on the Linux system preventing any usefull usage of FF until it is closed and reopened.

The message that pops up suggests FF is interuppting something incorrectly. Anyone with a suggestion to stop this problem? Keeping in mind FF plays with no flawas for more than 40 minutes

Many preferences don't sync, and it is sooo annoying to change them again every time I log in into a new Firefox instance. Can you please get more options to sync, such as the ones mentioned in the title?

Related to this, extensions that are installed not for the first time should not open new tabs (or at least an option should exist for this). And the preferences from the extensions themselves should also be synced.

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!

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?

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

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!

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.

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.
