So, I am a Linux user who is used to shell commands like mv or cp. One of their feature is absence of prompts like "Are you sure what you want to replace foo.txt?". Because I have somewhat organized fs, I always know what that file is for and if I can overwrite it.


Now I have to download some files, what I need only for uploading onto another website / reading them once. So, I just download them into my /tmp folder and save them under the same name (so I could just repeat cat command and reduce clutter). But each time I download a file Firefox asks for confirmation to replace my existing file. Are there any config flags to disable those annoying prompts?

Hi!

I would like to record sound from Firefox on Linux. However, every time sound stops playing(i.e. a video is paused), the sound channel disappears, and when the sound resumes playing, a new sound channel is created. This makes it near impossible to consistently record sound, since all the sound connections disappear along with the sound channel, and they have to be reconnected manually.

Is there a way to force Firefox to always use a single sound channel for everything, or create a sound channel for every tab, regardless of whether sound is actually playing?

I am using Firefox 107.0-1 on Arch Linux 6.0.9-arch1-1, with pipewire 1:0.3.60-3.

Thanks in advance, GOBLIN

I would suggest within the last month or so Firefox has started to hang in a way that everything continues to "work" but I cannot switch tabs and I cannot do anything else with Firefox until I kill it.

I can periodically reproduce this by: Randomly select and copy text on a website.

Behavior observed: You can no longer switch tabs, enter a new location, close tabs, or really interact with the browser at all even though it is not dead. Keyboard shortcuts do not work either.

I can't use any mouse's scroll wheel in Firefox. I've tried multiple mouses and even a trackpad and none of them will scroll. They all work fine elsewhere in the Ubuntu OS, but just not in Firefox. The manual scroll bars work fine and auto scroll works fine. I have tried starting Firefox in safe mode with all extensions and add ons disabled, but that didn't work. I tried turning off the hardware acceleration in Firefox settings and that didn't help either. Any suggestions before I switch browsers?

I have recently updated my site to run off a different hosting provider, and CloudFlare, a long needed change to my site. However, in doing so, my site has become unreachable on my laptop, with firefox (and other browsers) still thinking that my domain is attached to the old nameservers, causing it to redirect to the "site not found" page of my previous hosting provider. I have tried flushing my system's DNS cache, clearing my browser cache, clearing the browser's DNS records, all to no avail, however, I do know my site works, as on my mobile phone with basic Safari, the site works fine.

my system is on Ubuntu 22.04, and running firefox version 107.0

Hi,

I am currently working on a privacy study regarding Mozilla Firefox and I would like to have more detailed information on key log file using per-session secrets.

I used SSLKEYLOGFILE environment variable from underlying NSS library to get TLS session secrets [1], which can be used in Wireshark to decrypt HTTPS traffic. I looked at Firefox documentation for some answers and I found that NSS support for logging file is disabled by default since NSS 3.24 [2], that-is to say Firefox 48 and 49 [3]. I do not have found any documentation saying it has been re-enabled by default since then. However, I have made some tests on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (it is disabled on Debian) and Windows 10 using Firefox 106 (NSS 3.83) [4] and it works properly.

So, I have two questions : - Is it normal that this feature still works for decrypting traffic whereas it should be disabled by default ? - What is the position of Mozilla developers and the community on the security of this feature (anyone who have access to someone computer could get all of their internet passwords) ?

Thank you for your reading and I am looking forward to reading your answer.

Best regards

On my personal home page, I have several links as in the subject: which I use to browse javadoc. Clicking on the link does nothing AFAICT. Is there some kind of configuration setting to get the "click" to work? (It used to work years ago)

There are some workarounds

Workaround One

  1. Copy Link (context menu action)
  2. Ctrl-L
  3. Paste link in search/open bar
  4. Return

Workaround Two

  1. Open Link in New Tab (context menu action)
  2. Click on New Tab
  3. Ctrl-L
  4. Return

Workaround two leave an unwanted open tab

Hey there,

Intro: I recently switched to Linux and (because Brave is so broken) also to Firefox and I am liking it so far.

Problem: Unfortunately I can't copy-paste files from Ubuntu Files (Nautilus) to Firefox (I tested image files and also sounds files, neither is working).

Test with Firefox: 1. Download a random photo (e.g. from Unsplash) 2. Select the file and hit ctrl + c in Files/Nautilus 3. I go to the clipboard inspector 4. I hit ctrl + v 5. The image does not show up in the output (see screenshot)

Test with Brave: 1. Do the same as above 2. The image does show up in the output (see screenshot)

Notes: - I am using Linux Ubuntu 22.04 with Wayland - Firefox Version 107.0 (64-bit) for Ubuntu Canonical - 1.0 - I have no extensions installed - I am not using the snap version (so I can scroll smoothly) ... I think I used apt-get install but not 100% sure

I disable my option "Restore previous session" and it works fine if i close my firefox.

But if i do not close my firefox and reboot my computer directive, the session will restore at next startup.

Obviously when i reboot my computer, I don't want to see my tabs anymore, but I failed to find any setting to do so. I also find someone say to set `browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash` in `about:config`, but it doesn't work, and I don't think it is the proper way to solve this problem because reboot is not crash.

When installing Firefox, there is an option to import data from another browser. That feature is also available in the "Library -> Import and Backup -> Import data from Another Browser", and it imports things like Bookmarks and History from another browsers.

As the functionality already exists, is it possible to use that functionality in any way to import Bookmarks and History from a different profile in the same Firefox installation? I want to merge 2 different browsing history (like the old question https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/928204), and looks like using the "Import data from Another Browser" could help if it's possible to use it with another Firefox profile/directory.

Since Firefox moved to Snap updates, two things have happened almost every day: Snap pops up to say Firefox has an update pending, and it wants to be closed and restarted; and tabs crash, and the only way to make them stop crashing is to restart Firefox or restart the OS.

I suspect the two problems are linked, and I really have to ask: do we have to have an update every 36 hours? Microsoft mostly gets by with one update cycle per week. I like to use software, not update it. I know it has to get updated regularly, but regularly shouldn't be the same as constantly.

Environment is: Firefox 106.0.5 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS (64-bit) GNOME version 42.5 Wayland windowing system

When navigating in some pages, specially in google docs, the browser's URI fragment (the part after the #) changes frequently for each page/header/slide, and all of them are stored in the history.

That behavior adds lots of entries in the history and also hinders the usage of the search functionality of the address bar (as all the duplicates are shown instead of shown only one and other pages). I want to keep one entry per document, at least in specific pages like gdocs where the "fragment" doesn't add any useful information and each document can have lots of them.

Is there any way to configure that behavior, to not save every fragment in the history?


To reproduce the above behavior (the same behavior happens in other pages, not only gdocs):

- Open any gdocs document with several headers, or a gdocs presentation with several pages. - Navigate all the document/presentation, and check the history. - Close the document/presentation tab/window. - In a new window/tab, use the address bar to search the document/presentation by the document name: several entries for the same document/presentation are shown (and if they are lots of them, no other different entries with same words are shown in the address bar). - Check also the history: several entries of the same document/presentation are shown (it could be hundreds for long documents, and thousands after seen few documents).
