I am having problems playing a particularly demanding video from YouTube (https://youtu.be/-W_nFlIAWFM) which runs at 4K/30 fps. It is a video taken from a drone flying over the Matterhorn in Europe. Here is my configuration: 1. I have a 200Mb connection to the internet and bandwidth testing confirms that it runs at a consistent 195 - 202 Mb. 2. I am using Firefox 126.0 on a dual boot machine running Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and Windows 10 (both OSes show similar stuttering and pausing). 3. My hardware is a Gigabyte Aorus Z690i motherboard with 32 GB of RAM and an Intel i5-12600K processor and an NVidia GeFroce RTX 2060 Super graphics card. I have tried disabling "Use hardware acceleration" in Firefox and also disabling all add-ons and rebooting. This hasn't resolved the problem. When I watch the same video in Google Chrome, it seems to display a much slower frame rate than 30fps but doesn't stutter. I have concluded that this video must be a super demanding one to render. There are many picture elements changing constantly. But is there a way to watch this at 4K/30fps with it playing smoothly and at the correct frame rate?

I need to migrate the complete profile (all settings, bookmarks, passwords etc) from a snap install to an apt install on the same system. Currently I have both versions installed, but i want to remove the abomination that is snap..

I tried copying ~/snap/firefox/common/.mozilla/firefox files to ~/.mozilla/firefox but that doesnt seem to work. Since this is a multi-user system i dont want to rely on mozilla accounts to sync everything to the cloud.

What do i need to do in order to migrate all the data from one install to another?

I use DuckDuckGo for my basic search engine on both my laptop (Ubuntu system) and iPhone 8. It does not work today - saying "There was an error displaying the search results. Please try again.", needless to say...I have tried a number of times and differed the searches to no avail. I also cleared recent cache/history. Still stuck. Searching on Chrome I see on https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=40451490 that others are also experiencing this problem and do not understand it either - just a few entries

The Sun (a rather populist newspaper in UK) has an article saying it is international and happening today, 23 May 2024, suggests no fixes. (Not exactly a reliable source in my thing)

Has anyone ideas or should I just wait and use an alternative search engine meanwhile? Thanks for any help

This has been a problem for a while, currently on Firefox 126.0 and Nvidia 550.78. I can work around the problem by forcing webrender to use software mode.

When using HW accelerated webrender with my Nvidia graphics card everything works fine until the PC wakes from sleep, then graphics are broken and Firefox needs restarting. Most noticeable for me is when looking at Grafana graphs they will look like random lines, and my Frigate NVR snapshots only display some of the time.

Is there anywhere in Firefox that will show a log of any error messages to do with the graphics card? I would like to try and fix the problem rather than disabling HW acceleration, but with no logs to look at that is impossible. No other programs seem to have a problem with resuming from sleep, and no error messages are shown in any of the system logs.

Unable to connect

An error occurred during a connection to www.googleadservices.com.

   The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments.
   If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection.
   If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

I've got my "homepage and new windows" setting set up with several "ext+container links so that my selected websites open in their respective containers : e.g. ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

I open facebook in 2 seperate containers so that I can maintain 2 seperate personalities under facebook - e.g. I am a group admin within one, just a group member in another.

I have 2 urls defined in my "homepage and new windows" setting for these :

ext+container:name=Personal&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor ext+container:name=Facebook&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F%3Fsk%3Dh_nor

This was working fine without any issues. My sites opened up when I started my web browser and everything.

Recently, firefox has started up but my container tabs do not load automatically, I am getting a confirmation (I will post a screen capture as a comment).

Is there a way to turn this off and just open the tabs without a confirmation?

Firefox's website appearance settings include a setting to force a light theme, force a dark theme, or to have sites automatically adapt to the theme of the browser. I feel that's not exactly what I want. I don't want the browser's theme to have anything to do with themes of the sites I'm viewing, nor to force light or dark. I think I'd rather just use the site's default, or if not that, set a theme on the site itself. Is there any way for Firefox to just not meddle in a site's theming at all?

I kinda just don't want any connection between the theme of my operating system, the theme of my browser, or either of those and the theme of websites, and none to force a theme on any of the others. I'm not sure why that seems so desirable nowadays, but I don't want it.

I can control the number of rows. I can control whether to accept sponsored shortcuts. (I have chosen *not to.) I can control whether I want 1 or more rows to reflect recent activity. (I have chosen *not to.)

Yet until I pin my own preference to *every shortcut, it seems I cannot stop FF from putting "suggestions" in the empty slots, based on nothing but a single web visit.

This is annoying.

Moreover, if I visit several different pages connected to the same site, FF will put them all into shortcuts, with the same icons.

This is possibly even more annoying.

I am coming from Brave. They don't do things like that, although there is obviously a reason I'm giving FF a look.

But I would recommend, heartily, a home page shortcut box in settings that one could click (and actually *mean* something), like: "Don't ever suggest or fill in any shortcuts for any reason. I will handle it, and I don't like correcting your mistaken ideas."

Sadly, I am now forced to leave firefox. My passwords are getting "forgotten" more and more each day. Did i get hacked? Few passwords like proton mail I don't actually have anywhere else. Auto-Backup of firefox seems to be of the same day as the original??? So it loses the data then saves it twice? who designed this? I'm angry, not at firefox/mozilla. angry at myself for putting my trust in the first place. Chromium doesn't sync so it leaves me with chrome FFS. Does someone has a magic wand to recover the lost data? login.json is same day as original so not an option.

I need to go over the head of the Mozilla Triage manager who has left https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1406865 open without a resolution for **seven years**. How do I do that? This is a bug reported in Firefox 57 and **still** not fixed in Firefox 125. I cannot find any support category anywhere in the Mozilla website that covers appealing a decision by one of their employees. The last comment from this uncooperative indivisual is "But given we support it on macOS and Windows yeah, it seems not very objectionable." Who is this **clerk** to override the fact that a number of customers very much find this "objectionable". I cannot find anything on https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contact/ that addresses this issue. I cannot find even a surface mail address for Mozilla. For example my complaint has nothing to do with any of the following:

   I’m having problems with using Firefox
   I want to donate to Mozilla
   I have questions about using Mozilla’s trademarks
   I’d like to report misuse of a Mozilla trademark
   I want to hold an event in a Mozilla space
   I want Mozilla to sponsor my event
   I’d like permission to use a Mozilla logo
   I’m interested in Pocket’s sponsored content on Firefox
   I’m a member of the Press and have a question for Mozilla

Yes I am having a problem with Firefox, but the clerk responsible has, through sitting on this issue for **seven years**, basically told the entire community that he doesn't give a reservoir.

In particular I feel this unacceptable behaviour should be brought to the attention of senior management, but there are no contacts for anybody in senior management.

Hi,

I'm experiencing a problem on Firefox 125 and 126 on Red Hat Linux 8 & 9 and also on Ubuntu 20 and 22 systems.

We have a proxy pac which we have tried loading from an http url, or a local file and both produce the same result.

  • Launch Firefox, no access to Internet sites (i.e. no proxy)
  • Enter settings and Reload proxy pac
  • Proxy works perfectly

Is there any way to force the proxy pac to load on Launch? Why isn't this the default behaviour? or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks
