Using Ubuntu 22.04. I can upload and download files from /tmp and also from any directory on the home partition (or symlinked entirely within the home partition). However, I have a data partition with symlinks in the home partition, and Firefox throws a permissions error when I try to read or write from or write to one of those symlinked directories. So far, Firefox is the only app that exhibits this behavior.

I believe I need to change the "Security Context" in Firefox, but I haven't been able to figure out how to do that.

I describe the problem more fully here:

https://askubuntu.com/questions/1487763/firefox-cant-read-or-write-to-directories-symlinked-across-partitions

I will have to abandon Firefox if I can't fix this.

Thanks!

Firefox has been closing at random times. I do not see any crash logs in Firefox or event logs in Windows as to why this is happening. I can immediately re-open and it picks back up right where I left off. I am on Windows 10 enterprise 2h22, running Firefox 118.0.1 64-bit (this has happened in previous versions as well). I do have some add-ons, Tabliss, Cookie Quick Manager, Dark Reader, Sidebery, Lastpass, and Firefox Multi-Account Containers. I have checked each of these and uninstalled all of them but still happens. I have also uninstalled and re-installed and I am stumped. (I also have this same set up running on another computer but it has never done this to me)

Any ideas on what else I can try? Or other ways to investigate what is happening?

Retrying Save As Web Page, Complete does not retry all files

Using 118.0.1 (64-bit) under Linux Mint 21.2.

Apparent bug: Retrying failed "Web Page, Complete" case of "Save Page As..." does not retry downloading files.

  1. Observed behavior:

1. With the extension "DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials" enabled, typically if I do "Save Page As..." and choose "Web Page, Complete", then one or more files in the resulting "... Files" folder is missing compared to if the extension is disabled. This is probably as it should be. But...

2. In the downloads dropdown the download is shown as "failed". This is arguably as it should be, though the lack of information as to exactly which file download failed is unhelpful. Or arguably it is not as it should be, since from the point of the privacy extension user the download did not fail, it succeeded completely. But...

3. ***If I then click on the retry icon, it re-downloads *only the HTML*, not the files folder, and reports success.***

  1. Expected behavior:

If a "Save As..." "Web Page, Complete" fails, then retry should attempt to re-download all the files, or at least all the ones thought to have failed.

I have observed this bug only in Disqus, but another Disqus user has seen it in other web sites viewed via Firefox, so maybe you could check your logic. Here is the original bug:

When entering a Disqus comment [or possibly other text boxes] and using the Enter key to end the first paragraph, the text typed so far is erased. It can be recovered by immediately pressing Ctrl+Z (Undo), but this is not obvious; most users will think they just lost that text, and will retype it. This was sporadic for a year or two, but right now (morning of 10/2/2023) it seems to happen on every comment I type. In the past, it only occurred on the FIRST Enter key, at least if I recovered via Undo. The only contact I have with Disqus is in the comments on an episode of the Kevin and Kell webcomic (https://kevinandkell.com). I am running Windows 10 on a Bootcamp'ed Mac, and my browser is the latest version of Mozilla Firefox.

Disqus user FreedomFighter replied:

That is a common problem unique to Firefox. When you hit enter and the post erases, right click in the box and click on "Undo" to get the text back, then you can do what you need to do whether is type more words, or post the comment.

[His recovery is essentially the same as mine, only using the mouse rather than the keyboard.]

Could this be an interaction between Firefox and Disqus? I have not personally seen this on any other website via Firefox, but FreedomFighter apparently has seen it elsewhere.

I recently moved my other PC to Windows 10, then put on Firefox (browser). When I drop down the menu below the address bar, I see random web sites I apparently have used -- not what I want to see. I want what my laptop (Firefox on Windows 10, also) shows which is a set of web sites that I visit often. That list is fixed and does not deviate. THAT is what I want for my the other PC with the new Windows 10 on it. What setting(s) in Firefox controls this? I have attached a screenshot of the preferred drop down menu that I cannot seem to duplicate on the new Windows 10.

Thanks to all in advance for whatever advice you might offer.

Is it possible to spell check the entire web page using both Hunspell built-in dictionaries and user-defined dictionaries *.dic, already prepared text in Firefox. As it is done in text editors like Libre Office (also uses Hunspell) but for web site, checking the text from top to bottom with errors in a separate window, so spell check is not only in the text input/search field.

Hello,

I have requested support for this issue multiple times. Please assist.

Firefox always displayed my website main image until the latest update. Now on any device that uses the Firefox browser my main website homepage image does not display leaving a huge white area on the homepage. This of course is now a major issue that did not exist with this same image before.

Nothing has changed in the programming of my website which is why I need support from your tech and if anything is blocked could Firefox please unblock my main image to show on all Firefox browsers?

Website: https://herlifetherapist.com

I look forward to your quick response.

Thank you

I have FF set up to use only DDG. Part of this setup is that I have removed all other search engines from search options. Today Oct 7, 2023, when I booted up things were normal. About an hour ago I entered a search term in the browser and the search result came up on google. That should not be possible. I checked my settings and sure enough google has been added and placed atop DDG. Furthermore google cannot be removed when selected, the remove button is greyed out. The remove button is not greyed out when DDG is selected. !? What happened and how do I fix it?

continue in /questions/1427133 thread.

I was trying to save a mail message into a Local Folder, and Firefox produced the following pop-up message:


Error - bsn on Local Folders There is not enough disk space to download new messages. Try deleting old mail, emptying the Trash folder, and compacting your mail folders, and then try again.


I assumed that my C-drive was full, so I deleted a large file. The same message appeared. Then,after I realized that I could save messages into other Local Folders, I looked in the Local Folders directory. I saw that there was a file bsn.msf, but the bsn file was missing. I am restoring it from a backup from nine days ago. The pop-up message is clearly wrong/misleading. I am running 118.0.1 on Windows 10 Professional 22H2 64-bit. I see that I need to upgrade to 118.0.2, which I will do as soon as I finish entering this bug report.

I have found that Firefox does not play some audio files, for instance on Wikipedia and WaniKani, such as the audio on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Erhu and https://www.wanikani.com/vocabulary/%E9%9F%B3. When inspecting network activity I can see that an attempt is made to load the audio on Wikipedia, but it does not play. On WaniKani however, no attempt is made. (WaniKani uses .webm for sound, maybe that has something to do with it?) The problem appeared after the update to Firefox 118 and persists in private browsing and troubleshooting mode, but does not occur in GNOME Web.

I posted earlier about a search settings problem. I have been monkeying with things until I got a reply7 that led me to a fix. Except now I cannot see my addons on the toolbar and can't figure out how to make them visible. They seem to be there if I scroll over the spot but are not visible to me so that I can use them. Right click gives me the drop menu but left click gives nothing. And how do you get rid of that dang puzzle piece thing?
