Software: Manjaro Linux, GNOME, Xorg, Firefox 81 Hardware: nvidia GTX 1080 and AMD RX 570

I have a multigpu Linux machine and would like to configure Firefox to only use the AMD card for hardware acceleration.

Rationale: My Xorg is configured to only use the RX 570. My GTX1080 is mostly used to pass through to a Windows VM, but occasionally I do use it in Linux so do not want to disable it completely. This is usually seamless, when the card is not in use: When I start up the Windows VM, it unbinds the GTX1080 from the driver and passes the hardware through. When Firefox is running with hardware acceleration enabled, however, it can not unbind the GTX1080. It seems that Firefox is "using" the nvidia card, so I just want to disable that without disabling hardware acceleration entirely.

How to set Firefox to open new tabs on the left, not on the right of the tab list?

Hyperlink is ok, it opens on the right of the current tab, but not the Ctrl+T or when opening link from the pinned tab. Tab is placed to the far right. Current setup is not logical. If pinned tabs (important ones which you visit often) are on the beginning, and the tabs you are actively working on are on the opposite end of the tab bar. You want to open new tabs near the pinned ones.

Firefox did an update today, and restarting it, all my installed addons are gone. On top of that, my personal theme is no longer there.

Saved passwords, on the other hand, do not seem to be affected.

Any advice on how to restore the addons, in particular? My current version Firefox 76.0 on Fedora. Any help is appreciated!

It used to be that downloading something like a pdf and then clicking on it through the downloads dropdown would immediately open the pdf in the default system pdf viewer. Now I get a pop-up telling me the Portal "Open with" is ready which then presents me with a set of options for where to open the file. I have looked around for anyone else with this problem but haven't found anyone.

Hi!

For quite some time I run Firefox in KDE over wayland using Gentoo package. Recently I enabled webrender to fix bad flickering while loading sites, and while that worked I now see garbled text display towards the end of longer web pages. I do not remember which Firefox version it was when I switched on webrender, but the issue persists through a few recent Firefox upgrades till my current 81.0.2 (this is Gentoo linux build)

Attached screenshot is of the bottom of this page https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v5.x/ChangeLog-5.8.15 While top of page is always good looking, garbled text starts somewhere towards the end of page.

I'm not sure if this is a new issue or the same one as in bug 1667534.

Is there any easy option to fix this, or this should be filed as new bug?

this is a copy of something I just sent to the ubuntu forum. It explains my problem:

   I have been noticing that, sometimes, I can't shut down a program. This has happened with firefox, thunderbird and, now, livepatch. When this happens it also means that , again for instance, I am having problems typing this as things freeze. I have tried to shut down stuff from the program (which accepts nothing and is frozen), from the dock, and also tried to run system monitor which started, had the icon but wouldn't open. Basically my machine is in partial lockdown and there doesn't seem to be a damned thing that I can do. I am resisting just pressing buttons (always a mistake) but this is really frustrating. Oh, the livepatch box, that receives input, is also dimmed and will not go away. This little note took me 15 minutes to type.
   It got so bad that I started pushing buttons. The only other thing I had open was Firefox. I shutdown firefox and, suddenly, the livepatch connection, through software and updates, shut down on its own. For me this means that I have a problem with firefox and will be paying them a visit. Still, any thought are welcome as this one is starting to really get to me.
   thank you..................

Some time a go I've configured access to the smart card in the Spanish id card in Firefox, and it work. But I'm recently trying to use again and it doesn't.

I'm in a Debian 10 with the libpkcs11-dnie installed (with its dependencies) and I've set it up in a firefox-beta. Is where I've added months a go the module (/usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so), then I had logged in and saw the certificate in "Your Certificates".

Since then many updates came but I didn't need again to use this card. I'm trying it now that firefox-beta is 82.0 and the "log in" button is never enabled.

When I've tried with another firefox, for example the esr (78.3.0esr) coming with debian, I have to add this module as it wasn't there. I've clicked "Load" and fill the form with "module name" and "module filename" (the same file that I've mention before) and when I click 'ok', I receive an alert "Unable to add module". Same experience with firefox-stable (81.0.2) and with firefox-devel (82.0b9).

I don't even know if the issue comes from firefox. Is there a way to debug further the origin of this alert message or why this is not being recognized by the application?

Thanks

Hi, I deleted my "save bookmark" little star (that turns blue) in the URL bar. I have tried various options to restore it, but cannot find it anywhere. I have tried the advice to go to "customize" and drag and drop the option, but the option does not exist in there (as per this question posted about 5 years ago)

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1076141

Also watched this video, but again, the star he sees present in the customize options, does not exist for me. Perhaps it does not exist anymore at all in newer versions of Firefox. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UtsMaYzxPq0

How do I restore the star?

As an aside, I really wish that, when yo click on the star button, it wouldn't come up with a tiny "keyhole" size window in which to save my bookmarks, insert tag/search words for future searches etc. I have a huge range of saved web pages, and I rely heavily on being able to search my library of bookmarks using these key search words. It would be best if the full blown Bookmark window popped up whenever you saved a bookmark, and you could put in all your search words/phrases etc. A Description entry point would be useful too, eg "Aunt Sally might like these flowers for her birthday, I was thinking of the blue ones". Just some feedback on an otherwise really solid browser, thank you.

I am a long-time Firefox user, but I've noticed a recurring problem with Firefox on my Ubuntu system (Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS, 64 bit; Gnome 3.6.3; Windowing system Wayland), which is that some of the text will sporadically be disrupted.

When I use "Inspect Element," it seems that the font being used is Twemoji Mozilla, which is surprising as the field is plain text, not emojis or wingdings.

The two images attached are what I'm seeing.

Hi, I can't find a way to set cookie rules globally that get automatically sent to websites I visit the first time. So my problem is I have to visit a lot of sites for research and every time get distracted by a cookie pop up that I have to accept or lose a lot of screen space. I have Asperger and was wondering, how to set in Firefox what kind of cookies I'm fine with and what don't, basically an API or standard or how you call it, browsers can communicate to cookie managing tools of websites automatically what cookies I want to set and what don't. Also I have some Wordpress websites, so I want to know if Firefos planes to provide a PlugIn for site owners so such automatic cookie settings can also work on my website. Maybe some sort of if-else states that the user of the browser can set, for example:

If website accepts that no cookie is needed - allow no cookies.

If Facebook Like Button is required of website - don't allow and inform me to search information on a competitor sites, via a Firefox pop up

If website allows to save my settings (like dark mode, layout option, ... - always allow

The problem with no automatic Browser wide solution is, in the heat of a work day, i just accept everything because I have no time to go in for every website and pick what cookies I want, and what don't.

Also I am a Designer not a Developer so I can't create such a prototype by myself, even if it would be beneficial for everybody.

What can I do, to get such a Feature, or does it already exist and if how is the API called so that I know how to search for if.

Thank you guys for this great Browser and have a great day
