Today I tried using a Socks5 proxy that requires user and password. It seems that this is still unsupported as already concluded in https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1237174 and https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=122752

Any news on this?

Kind regards,

aanno

PS: I _was_ able to use the very same proxy with curl with

curl --proxy-user user1:pass1 --socks5 "http://localhost:1080" https://www.google.de

Firefox won't start after updating to version 123.0 on Ubuntu OS.

At the same time, no errors will appear, and there is also no specific crash report that would help understand the reason.

Tomorrow I will help a friend update their unsupported Linux OS to the most current version of the OS. The present version of Firefox is 88. Firefox could not update I assume because of the age of the OS.

My concern is porting everything correctly from the old to the new version of Firefox. If I setup sync, will it restore his passwords and add-ons in addition to his bookmarks?

If not is there a good way to do it?

Intermittent Master Password Recognition Issue with External Keyboard on Firefox for Ubuntu

Hello, I've encountered a recurring issue with Firefox on Ubuntu where my master password is sporadically not recognized when typed using my external wireless keyboard. … (funda okungaphezulu)

Hello,

I've encountered a recurring issue with Firefox on Ubuntu where my master password is sporadically not recognized when typed using my external wireless keyboard. This problem does not occur consistently but is particularly frustrating when it does, as it forces me to switch to my laptop's keyboard for input. I'm certain the password is entered correctly; after multiple careful attempts (3-5 times), the issue persists, leading to unnecessary stress and inconvenience.

    • Environment:**

- **Operating System:** Latest version of Ubuntu - **Hardware:** Dell Latitude laptop with a Contour external wireless keyboard, connected through a Dell docking station. This setup is shared with another laptop (HP) via the docking station.

    • Observations:**

- The issue seems to occur sporadically and is not reproducible on demand, adding to the frustration. - It has happened notably on the first login attempt after the computer's first boot of the day. - On one occasion, the problem led me to change my master password under the mistaken belief it had been compromised.

    • Impact:**

This intermittent recognition issue disrupts my workflow and significantly affects my user experience with Firefox. The necessity to switch input methods and the initial misinterpretation of the problem as a security concern are particularly concerning.

I hope this detailed feedback assists in identifying and resolving the issue. Thank you for your attention to this matter Firefox.

Sincerely, Daniel

When I scroll up or down on the touchpad in firefox, it is like I scroll past a certain threshold, and it then sends a "scroll up" or "scroll down" command.

When I do this is Chromium, it's like I'm moving the website with my fingers. Similar to how it would be on a touch screen. In other browsers, the scrolling is not discrete, but continuous.

I love firefox, but this is driving me mad when I'm browsing. Is there any fix for this?

At the moment of this screen shot the processor is not overwhelmed, however, it will sometime jump up to 75% and the system will seem to freeze.

What is the "Isolated Web Co"? I'm thinking a virus.

Thank you.

Hi! I do not want more cookies than "necessary". So I reject, make settings etc. And I clean them automatically when closing Firefox, just in case. On some sites that I visit very often, this turns out very tedious and timeconsuming. How to allow only necessary cookies and not the rest? With Privacy & Security, Cookies and Site Data, Manage Exceptions, I can allow or block cookies from specific sites. What do I allow when I choose Allow? Only the ticked ones or all marketing and other stuff even when these are not preticked as default? Or will the choices made during this session be saved? In the case of my bank and a couple of others, I would like to save my choices to be able to enter it a little faster. But cleaning at closing Firefox also deletes that, I suppose? How to save my choices without saving all cookies?

Is there any way to see what kind of cookies have been saved? I can see the number of cookies for each site under Manage Data, but how to see the type of cookie?

When watching a video on YouTube, the sound suddenly stopped playing. Currently, sounds in video and audio are not played on all sites.

The problem is only in the browser. Audio and video files are perfectly reproduced by the VLC player. There is also sound in the Chrome and Firefox ESR browser.

My actions. 1. Disabled all extensions 2. Clearing history and deleting all cookies

My browser - Firefox Developer edition, version 123.0b9 OS - Debian 12

P.S. I have been using the developer edition for many years. It seems to me more convenient and faster compared to regular Firefox. I really don’t want to delete the customized browser.

I need help with audio in browser...

Many thanks!

hi, some websites lately have password inputs set as "text" in the html and that confuses firefox into NOT suggesting saved login/password for those fields.

i inspected the password field in question and this is the correspondent html:

​<input autocomplete="off" id="PasswordInput_68.39270255653231" class="ant-input false" placeholder="Password" maxlength="32" pxunit="14" buttonwidth="100" timeformat="YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss" store="[object Object]" langlocale="[object Object]" type="text" value="">

btw, if i change the type to "password" it DOES suggest the saved login/password.

PS : the website in question is a login page for a dahua XVR.

Firefox keeps crashing randomly, sometimes at startup, and sometimes just in the middle of a session. Sometimes just one tab will crash, and other times it'll be the entire browser. I ran it in troubleshoot mode and it still crashed, so it's not caused by an extension or anything. It never used to do this before and I don't understand what's causing this issue.

This isn't a constant issue for me, but occasionally the browser will suddenly break such that when I switch tabs, nothing actually updates until I do something like restore/maximise the window. I can still interact with the page itself, but whether using the mouse or keyboard shortcuts, changing, opening, or closing tabs, or even typing in the navigation bar, won't do anything until I resize the window again. I haven't been able to figure out any pattern to when this state triggers, but after it does, it doesn't clear up without closing and reopening the browser. I have recorded a video showing this behavior but I am unable to upload it here, and still images would not properly convey the issue.

I play a game at Vegas World. It's basically a free online slot machine site. I have played it for years with Chrome. Recently switched to Firefox. Playing an auto spin slot game, Firefox gets slow and hangs after about 25 spins. Chrome will go for 10,000 spins. So, Firefox is useless on game sites. I don't really expect a fix or solution. And I don't actually expect to use Firefox by the end of the day.
