i have a sd card running an linyx os. i feel if im willing to put the contents of the sd card at risk i should have the right to do so. there is no work around trying to load an unsecured website. i dont feel that is something you get to choose for me. and i should be able to be in control of what i do on my computer wheather i get a virus or not. i belive your job ends at letting me know im at risk. that is all, i dont need a response because im my own person and you have no right to dictate what i do or do not do. thank you

I normally use Firefox desktop on my Linux computer.

Last week, I started using it on a public computer running Windows. I installed Firefox Portable and then logged/synced into my Firefox account on this Win computer. I noticed that in the Firefox Portable Windows “about:preferences” page, it says “Your browser is being managed by your organization”, which links to about:policies. In that “about:policies” page, it shows this https://i.imgur.com/JmD8nXg.png Policy Name: DisableAppUpdate Policy Value: true. Now I’m back on my Linux desktop computer and it also has this “managed by your organization” message in “about:preferences” and the same “about:policies” stuff. In other words, it appears that this policy was copied from the Windows public computer to my personal Linux computer. I don’t want that.

How can I undo this? And how can I block this sort of policy syncing?

When typing, for example an email in office 365 webmail, approx 1 in 10 characters is missed. This happens in every session and after reboots. It doesn't seem to matter if i am typing slowly or quickly, and it happens in an incognito browser window too. I am certain that key-presses are being sent, they are just not reflected reliably in the browser. There are more than enough resources available for firefox.

I use Mint 19.3 and is attached to a hardware product Winston Privacy which due to lack of sales the piece of Hardware is no longer available but the Hardware I have has a Lifetime License in the firmware. My point is the tracking that Mozilla does seems to be very high with Mozilla even though I have turned off the tracking with Firefox. As you can see with the attached file 'ScreenShot1' Pie graph Domain 'incoming.telemetry.mozilla.org' is the majority of the pie which has a count of 61 blocks. File 'ScreenShot2' shows the actual number count for the Domain.

Linux distribution: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Firefox version: latest

I really, really need something to increase the size of all the icons in the toolbar. The size of the text is fine, but surprisingly the size of the icons is ridiculously small.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1260063

This thread does not help me, because for some reason the value '1.5' decreases the size, and the value '2' makes no difference at all.

After upgrading to firefox-bin-96.0 on Gentoo Linux, I found that a number of extensions are malfunctioning.

uBlock Origin: 1) Not blocking content. All ads appear. I see this error message in the console: Error: Could not establish connection. Receiving end does not exist. | content_script.js

2) Toolbar icon does not show blocked items count (probably due to above)

3) Clicking toolbar icon causes resulting popup to appear as a vertical line (normal height but just a couple of pixels wide) with no content.

4) Going to Add-on settings and choosing "Preferences" from the add-on's 3-dot menu, the resulting tab crashes.

5) After removing and re-installing the add-on, its button does not appear on the toolbar.

6) After creating a blank profile and installing the add-on, all the above still happens.

7) After downgrading to firefox-bin-95.0.1, all the above still happens.

Ghostery: 1) Works on first install (did not previously have this installed); but after restarting Firefox, no longer works.

2) Breakage symptoms similar to uBlock Origin: No blocked items counter (and no blocking). Preferences tab still works though.

Multi-Account Containers: 1) Clicking on toolbar icon opens normally-sized but empty popup.

2) Opening a site that's configured to open in a container from a New Tab page tile, the site opens but *not* in the configured container (tab edge is not highlighed in container's colour-code).

Recently started that Firefox 95 no longer changes focus in Ubuntu 20.4 when mouse click is applied. Another Firefox window can be selected through taskbar mouseover on the logo or by minimizing one Firefox window to get to another Firefox window. A simple mouseover, no click, changes focus from Firefox to a window from another application and back to Firefox. This too is a new behavior. But, neither mouseover nor mouse click will change focus to another Firefox window.

Hello,

There is this one website where scrolling with keyboard keys (arrows or PgUp/PgDown) works intermittently. Sometimes it works when I load the page and then it stops (usually when I switch to another tab and then return to it), sometimes it doesn't work from the start. I went through the usual diagnostics (safe mode, new profile etc.) and even though sometimes they seemed to help at the beginning, the problem always returned. I kind of gave up on it, since the time consumed by me trying to find a solution is disproportionate to the minor annoyance it causes, but it still mystifies me. FWIW, it's a blog with a very long Disqus comment section (the latest post has nearly 1,500 comments). Maybe the problem has a very simple solution which I've just failed to find?

Whenever I search something and follow a link, or if I'm on a page and click a link to another site or page, the history in the tab gets overwritten.

I've only noticed it this month and if I'm looking for something quickly its extremely frustrating having to re search with the same parameters over and over or remember to open every search in its own tab.

I've had a hard time searching this issue, I don't know if my terminology is right or if it's just a very niche issue I'm having.

Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated.

Writing this feels a little like having a time bomb open as I'm using the Firefox browser. Of course, I’m not *certain* it’s Firefox causing the crashes, but it seems like it.

Using Firefox > seemingly on click (no specific type of object that I’ve discerned) but once in a while just if I have the browser open in the background > computer freezers > fans whir at max for about a second > computer crashes & automatically restarts

This happened once before. I’m assuming by the version number that it might be due to a new update. Before, I put up with it for a couple days then it went away on its own. This was months ago but fewer than 6 months. My computer is in good condition (no falls or rough treatment, it’s a 2019, the hard drive isn’t anywhere near full, etc) so it really SHOULDN’T be something failing, but the sequence of events is so weird.

Anyone else experiencing this on 95.0.1? Has anyone else experienced this before? Already tried a fresh install. Going to see if I can revert to 94.something to test my theory that it is Firefox… and save me from having to use some other browser. I have a text file of the crash output that gets sent to Apple but I do not see a good way to attach it here.
