Hi everyone!

When I browse the web with Firefox, it happens that the system becomes completely unresponsive. Some web pages seems to make Firefox using a lot of RAM and write a lot on the hard drive. I cannot actually say much more, because it not even possible to login in a console. The system is too slow and the console login times out... Firefox (or Web Content) writes wildly on the hard drive.

I used the Firefox provided by my Linux distribution (Linux Mint), but also the one downloaded from mozilla.org. The problem seems to be less frequent for the second, but it happend nevertheless.

The point is that this problem with Firefox happens sometimes, for example, when I forget the browser open on somehow demanding webpage (like in newspapers where there are a lot of media, graphics, and so on).

A point is also that I cannot replicate this "bug". If now I browsed the same pages that made the mess, nothing would probably happen.

I thought it had to do with the swap, but the system hanged both when the swap space was enabled and when it was disabled.

I saved a copy of the profile (and the cache) after the last crash, if they could be useful. The last time I had actually to force the shutdown of the computer, because there was no way to regain control over it.

Any ideas?

Thank you for your answers!

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

So based to https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1242818 the option mentionned in about:config doesn't exist anymore.

in palce of that it has been replaced I guess by services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID Well this option doesn't do shit. I still got my theme sync even with restarting the browser. It's very disappointing.

I just used pacman to update to the latest Firefox, but the tab crashed each time I open a new web page ( I can open settings, about:xxx and etc... ). I tried Troubleshoot Firefox crashes and it did not crash in troubleshoot mode. Then I tried extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems but non of these options solved the problem. I disabled all extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, and it reported the same error.

The Firefox account settings page displays a list of logged in devices at the very bottom of the page (connected services).

I have verified all logged in devices to be correct. However for one of the devices (my main computer browser), the location displayed is COMPLETELY off. I live in Norway, and it claims device location is somewhere in Oregon, United States. I do not use any VPN services and both my public IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are located in Norway, from which I connect with the device/browser in question (whatismyipaddress.com shows correct location for both of them). Also, activity timestamp is updated in accordance with my own activity from the client, but the location remains wrong. I also tried logging out the device, and logging back in, but this did not fix the location.

Obviously the location service used for the logged in device list is unreliable. I suggest that you please also show the latest IP address used by each device, so that more technically inclined users can verify correct addresses themselves, should the location be way off. It is unsettling to see strange locations (for known devices) on a page used to verify the security of my Firefox account. In this instance, there is no security breach, but it required me to spend much time investigating.

I do not know if it matters, but the device in question is a Linux desktop Firefox client.

I am running RHEL 7 and KDE4 with Firefox Nightly.

Firefox will not use KDE/Qt dialog boxes or system applications. For example: when showing the downloaded file list (Ctrl + Shift + y) and clicking the folder icon to show the file's location, firefox will freeze for several seconds before opening a window in Nautilus.

I have found discussions of this problem that span seemingly a decade without a simple step-by-step guide or an updated solution. Answers range from: editing =mimeinfo.cache= file for the =inode.directory= line, editing items in =defaults.list= file; setting the =GTK_USE_PORTAL=1= variable (somewhere) and then changing various =about:config= settings.

It's just confusing and exhausting tracking this down. Is it possible to get firefox to play nicely with KDE? Nothing that I have tried so far seems to have worked, but I'm honestly not sure where this setting would live, or magic bash incantation I need to run.

I know this seems minor, but having just switched back over to firefox to chrome, it seems very jarring seeing the GTK dialogs that do not play nicely with the rest of my desktop/workflow (i.e., I do not want to start a Gnome vs KDE flamewar, but rather: I'm used to dolphin and how it works and make heavy use of the embedded terminal within dolphin windows or drag&drop files into the Qt open dialog box which "drops" as a file path ... I have no idea what happens if I drag something into the GTK open dialog box)

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

Ever since upgrading to FF89, some websites don't increase the font size when I zoom in using ctrl+mouse wheel. The default seems like 9px, really hard to read.

Facebook is a culprit. Also OctoPi, a local service. Facebook, at least, uses rem units. Doesn't react to zooming in.

I use the session restore option, but when I open a new firefox window (by detaching a tab) and forget to close last the window with most tabs, the restored session is the single tab that I detached. This has happened a couple of times, but I can't remember exactly how to solve it, just that there was an action that would 'pop out' the previous session, like opening a new window and closing the last tab there. any tips?

I use this workaround to fix tearing on my mediacenter powered by a intel baytrail hardware.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Firefox/Tweaks#Enable_Legacy_OpenGL_compositor

until v88, it was working fine.

With v89, the setting layers.acceleration.force-enabled=true has no effect. The "about:support" page reports Compositing: webrender (software) whatever the value true or false.

I had to downgrade to v88.
