Firefox won't show ever the window to save files or to open files. It happens on any website. If I press ctrl+S the "save as" window does not appear. If I try, on any page, to open a file for upload the window to select the file does not show.

Please advise!

OS: Ubuntu 22.04.3 LTS Firefox Version: 118.0.2 (64-bit) (installed through Snap)

Hi, Description: Sometimes when I move my cursour over certain elements on a website, black or white Blocks appear. These Blocks are always rectangular but usually not sqare. Oftentimes the block will have Diagonal lines running up to the top left corner of the Box. The apperance seems to be connected to mouse movement. They pop up and dissapear only when the mouse is moved. And stay when they have appeard and the mouse isn't moved. Esspecially highliting things makes them occur. Example images are provided. Occurance: They are not limited to one website, though they don't seem to appear everywhere. Their occurace seems to be consistent. They are not limited to websites however. White boxes can also appear over highlighted text in the URL, regardless of the website. Example image is attatched The Boxes occur in no other Browser and in no other Programm. They have been there for a while, so it's not the version. Tried Fixes: I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. The boxes also appear in Private windows. I used the suggested feature for removing all settings and addons. Interestingly if I run firefox in Troubleshooting mode none of the Boxes appear.

Like I said, I only have these issues in the Firefox browser, so if it is a problem with my system itself I'd love to get your Ideas to what might cause them.

Hi, I seem to have an issue with Firefox rendering pages with artifacts. I use Linux Mint 21.2 Cinnamon, video adapter is Intel HD 4000. Currently running 6.2 kernel, tried to fall back to 5.15 which didn't change anything. Attached the examples, the first 2 are screenshots of the about:support page, the issue appear there consistently but not necessarily at the same place. I've tried to open Firefox in the Troubleshooting mode, and the artifact appeared right in the dialog asking for restart! (see pic. 3) Enabling software WebRender (gfx.webrender.software=true) fixes the issue.

about:support page:

 when HW compositing is on: https://termbin.com/7ith
 when SW compositing is on: https://termbin.com/rlme

I have tested memory with memtest86+ overnight with no errors, CPU has been tested by Prime95 for 3-4 hours, the iGPU seems to be working fine either in Unigine Heaven, GpuTest and glmark tests. Is there a way to fix the issue other than disabling HW compositing?

I have defined custom fonts for some languages, but they're not appearing as I defined them. Instead, the OS default fonts are showing up.

This is happening after I reinstalled Firefox in my device. Before that, the fonts were appearing as defined.

For example: English text is using Arial instead of Noto Sans, and Japanese text is using Meiryo instead of Noto Sans CJK JP.

For the Japanese font, it does show up correctly in the address bar, but not in the page itself.

I'm encountering some difficulties with my current account, which is locked out. I would like to request assistance from the support team to help me delete my account and remove my personal information from the platform. However, I'm having trouble finding the contact information for the support team. I couldn't locate their email address or phone number, and I'm hesitant to post my personal email address and information on a public forum.

I'm feeling quite frustrated, as I've never encountered such challenges with an app before. It appears that I'm unable to reach the Firefox support team at the moment. Can someone please provide guidance on how I can securely and privately request their assistance in deleting my account and personal information?

I had to create a new account just to post this question because my original account got locked out. This happened because I recently acquired a new phone and didn't transfer the two-step authentication information to my new device.

Hello,

On MacOS 14.0(Sonoma) Firefox 118.0.2 (64-bit), facing the problem with web.whatsapp.com chat messages. The timestamps for the messages are displayed in UTC and not as per the system time(IST, in my case).

- web telegram shows correct timestamps, opened in same browser session - web whatsapp on Chrome shows correct timestamps - fingerprinting is set to false(was not touched at all).

Any idea what could be wrong? Thanks. -Sachin

I just downloaded the new Firefox and replaced the old application. All my bookmarks are gone. When I go to Manage and Restore, it tells me to choose a file but I don't seem to have the file on my computer. Under library>application support there is no Firefox folder. There is a Mozilla folder, but the only thing in it is the "extensions" folder with one file. I have a backup of my full computer on a hard drive from before the download, but I can't seem to find a file there either. I don't think I ever specifically asked my computer to save the Bookmarks. Does it auto save in the application? Is there a way to restore the prior version of Firefox on my computer?

If I have many tabs open, and pull one away, instead of the previous tab saying in focus, it clicks to a different tab.

If I have 5 tabs open:

  1. Tab1
  2. Tab 2
  3. Tab 3
  4. Tab 4
  5. Tab 5

I'm focused on Tab 3. If I pull Tab 5 away, it snaps me into Tab 4 even though I was previously on a different tab.

I think this isn't a bug but not desired?

HTML backup (bookmarks) doesn't support tags and annotations, but JSON backup does, and JSON backup doesn't preserve the website favicons, but HTML backup does?  

So, what I can do, is restore my (saved) bookmarks using JSON backup, then restore the HTML backup, this would get my tags and annotations, and the website favicons back? But the downside, I will need to remove duplicates?

I'm running into a very strange issue where on my personal computer, I'm unable to log in to the below website, receiving a "Secure Connection Error." I know normally, this would be a certificate issue on the website's side, but in this case, I don't believe it is. The issue being is I can access the site using Firefox on both my phone and other computers just fine. It just appears to be my desktop having the issue.

Are there any recommendations for fixing this issue? I've attempted clearing browser history, doing fully clean installs of Firefox, other browsers, shutting off my VPN, and DNS flush.

To note: this is a SSO site for logging into Opera products - in my case GameMaker Studio 2. I was, at least, able to login a few weeks ago. I'm using Windows 11, currently fully updated as of writing this. I'm using NordVPN, but so are other systems that allow me to sign in.

Several months ago I lost the ability to bookmark multiple tabs into a new Folder. When I perform the procedure and give the new folder a unique name, the selected bookmarks appear in the generic "Bookmarks Menu" section and the folder I specified with the unique name is created but is empty. Also, I cannot even store a single tab to an existing folder of Bookmarks. When I select the existing folder after CNTRL+D, the bookmark just goes to my generic "Bookmarks Menu" section and not to the existing folder I selected. I have reloaded Firefox but the problem continues. Can someone help me? Thanks.

Greetings:

I regularly access the ‘Bill O’Reilly DotCom’ site via Mozilla Firefox. Recently following a service interruption (now corrected), I could not open the site at the homepage (https://www.billoreilly.com) through any browser. Eventually, the issue self-corrected on Microsoft Edge and Google Chrome, but persists at Firefox. Whenever I enter "https://www.billoreilly.com" into the address line, I am instead booted over to a site at "https://na.billoreilly.com/" (see image), an all-white blank page save for the 'Bill O'Reilly DotCom' logo and a message reading:

"BillOReilly.com is not available in this country. We apologize for any inconvenience."

The insertion of the 'na.' into the homepage address might indicate a default change in access possibly caused by a virtual private network being shifted to a different region, with 'na' connoting another country. But my VPN is set for 'United States' and is presently disconnected. Repeatedly removing the ‘na.’ from the address line and manually entering the correct home page address is useless – it continues to reinsert the ‘na.’ And as indicated, my Chrome and Edge browsers have no such problem accessing this homepage, so this is obviously an issue relative to Firefox.

Fortunately, I can freely access 'Bill O'Reilly Dotcom' content through their other links. But the loss of the homepage is nonetheless a nuisance. Please impart any information or wisdom you may have on ameliorating this issue. I have contacted 'Bill O'Reilly Dotcom' about this matter as well
