Operating System Ubuntu 20.04.4LTS on AMD® Ryzen 3 pro 3200g 64bit processor. Firefox Web Browser version 100.0.2 (64-bit)

The method I can reproduce sound distortion:

I have clear sound playback through both system HDMI speakers or if earphones are plugged in, verified using the Ubuntu Sound Output test left/right (without distortion)

Then if I open a normal Firefox window and listen to YouTube video for example I have no distortion, if I however open I private window, say to access training material on Microchip University site I suddenly have distorted playback.

Please advise why private window opened suddenly distorts my output sound. Sound suspicious.

I'm on Ubuntu 22.04 which is using the snap package of Firefox.

It seems that I cannot open local files in the /tmp directory. When I place a test.html file there and run `firefox /tmp/test.html`, it returns a file not found error. Why?

I don't have the problem with files in my home directory.

Hello dear firefox developpers.

Recently i realized firefox is not saving cache where it used to. that happens some versions ago to now.

By a sudden necessity, i need to access images stored in cache by facebook.

however, firefox has moved its cache, and have no idea where it stores it now.

the second point, is, if there is any way of "surf" cache, im not sure but i wonder, the cache is not what used to be, a collection of files related to what you surfed in the web, videos, htmls, pictures, etc.

I seems the cache now works in a different way, making solid archives composed of many images-videos..., instead of separate files for every image-video.


So, in a brief, 2 things:

- where is cache now - how can i access files in it, (images videos ..)

PD:im using ubuntu 20.04 PD2:have a nice day, and thanks. PD3: trolls will be attended in office hours

HI! I'm using Firefox 98 on Linux Ubuntu 20.04. after the last update I found several settings changed and I had to reset them, but there is one setting I can't manage. In the download preferences I set all the Microsoft Excel entries to "Always ask", but every time that I try to see an Excel file (no download, just open with ...), this is automatically downloaded. I definitively don't want to download it. How can I change this behavior? P.S.: I realized right now that there is the same problem with .docx files and I don't know how many others file types.

When I want to drag and drop a tab into a folder of the bookmark toolbars, I can't do it for some folders.

Specifically, it doesn't work for folders that are somewhat in the area of the tab preview animation that pops up when I start dragging the tab. So that is not the same folders every time, it depends on the tab location in the tab bar.

I hope that the explanation was clear enough, I did a screen record also, made it available here https://ufile.io/pikit6xo (335 kB).

Do someone had a similar issue and found a solution?

As I said in the subject: - The browser freezes the whole PC and I have to force reboot it. (I already disabled the hardware acceleration) - the recent download item open button does not trigger the opening of the folder. - If I try to download a file, the browser ask me where to save it. But if I try to download another one the browser shows me the directory with path /run/usr/1000/... I tried to delete places.sqlite but I received the same result. ... I'm attaching two screenshots also. Thanks a lot!

This was going to be a question about Firefox being unable to display the file picker dialog, but I managed to find a solution that worked for me along the way. Since it was nowhere near the top of Google's results, I thought I'll share my solution in the hopes that this would help someone facing this same issue.

The hardware:

  • Asus UM425IA Zenbook (AMD Ryzen 7 4700U CPU)

Worked in:

  • Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
  • Firefox provided by APT repository
  • Xorg display server

Not working in:

  • Ubuntu 22.04 LTS
  • Firefox 99.0.1 provided by snap
  • Wayland display server
  • File picker worked briefly on fresh install, but something (not sure what) quickly breaks file picker functionality

The symptoms:

  • Firefox stopped being able to open file picker dialogs
  • Right clicking an image and selecting "Save Image As..." does nothing
  • With forms that accept file upload (such as on this post question page "Add images (optional):"), clicking "Browse" does nothing
  • File downloads work correctly when set to "Save files to ..." under Settings, but nothing happens when set to "Always ask you where to save files"
  • No response to "Ctrl + O" open file shortcut

Similar questions and solutions:

Things I tried that did not work:

  • Disabling hardware acceleration
  • Starting with add-ons disabled
  • Troubleshoot mode
  • Clearing startup cache
  • Clearing cookies and site data
  • Clearing history
  • Refreshing Firefox
  • Creating and using a new profile
  • Deleting the `xulstore.json` file from the profile directory
  • Toggling all permissions under Ubuntu Settings > Applications > Firefox to off and then back to on
  • chmod 777 ~/Downloads
  • Disabling native file picker "ui.allow_platform_file_picker = false"

And finally, what fixed it for me was to go into "about:config" and change "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.file-picker" from "2" to "0". Credit to this post that clued me in.

I really hope this saves someone else 2 days of hair pulling and I would appreciate advice from someone more knowledgeable than me on:

  • Why this fixed the problem
  • Whether I should be opening a bug report either against Firefox, or Ubuntu
  • Whether I should also be changing "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.mime-handler" and "widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.settings", both are currently set to "2"

Firefox will only open in Safe mode, previously it was working but now it's not.

I have Ubuntu 22.04 Firefox version 99.0.1 (64-bit)

When I try to open it in command line, it's also only opening in safe mode but I do also get some error messages that I've included below.

So what does all this stuff below from the command line actually mean? And how do I fix it?

Firefox seems to be blocking some element required for logging in to Dropbox. Any attempt to log in to Dropbox results in this message:

Your browser appears to be blocking dropboxcaptcha.com, which is required for authentication. To resolve this issue, please update any anti-virus or ad-blocking software settings to allow connections to dropboxcaptcha.com.

I have found the issue referenced [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1146181|once]before on this forum, and that solution does not resolve the matter: restarting Firefox in safe mode has absolutely no effect on this, and the problem manifests identically in whether safe-mode or not.

I am using KDE Ubuntu Linux OS on desktop CPU with Firefox browser.

When I went to sign in to a website. After I entered the user name and password the next step should be that requires a Google 2FA authentication code but the website goes blank. I refreshed site. Still a blank webpage.

The website will open correctly as expected using my Android cell phone using Firefox browser. Which is also where I have the Google Authentication app installed.

I had to use Brave to open the website. I am told by others Google Chrome will also work but I try to avoid both these browsers.

I have not added the 2FA sign in to Firefox main sign in yet. I intend to switch over to a Yubikey 2fa in the near future.

Any ideas?

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work

I'm struggling with firefox crashing every few days or so. Unfortunately, pretty often there is no crash report. Is there a way I can sanely get to the bottom of this?

It happens to me more often with Cisco Webex than other scenarios, but there are also completely unrelated crashes.

This is Ubuntu 20.04 and standard firefox package installation. I haven't yet turned off the extensions:

 feedbro
 gnome shell integration
 stylus
 uBlock origin

I hesitate to disable them since most are important to my work.
