The custom screenshot select tool (the tool which lets you select custom area of the screenshot) only captures a part of that selected are. This is quite an inconvenience. I am on Mozilla Firefox 99.0.1 for Windows x64 system. I have added the screenshots.

Posted an Imgur link as Mozilla's website is seemingly stuck at uploading images.

Good afternoon,

Mozilla Firefox on Windows 7 is not working properly. When I type an URL the suggestions pop up, when I press enter to go to the website nothing happens. "Setting" does not open as well, just nothing happens. This applies to all other options of the Mozilla Firefox browser. "about: config" does not work as well. I tried opening the about.support, the page opened up but when I click on it nothing happens as well. All other browsers work with no problems. I tried: 1)Restarting PC 2) Fresh Reinstallation (3x times) 3)Adjusted the firewall rules

Hello! Since the most recent firefox update, my settings and extensions have been inaccessible to me due to my firefox account profile being "old." It has been working perfectly until this update. If I try to change my profile to my old one, it forces me to create a new one which does not include my saved addons and settings. I am able to usually manually move my bookmarks to the new profile via the files stored locally. I really need access to the settings and extensions, so it would be great if someone can help me to recover them. I tried to troubleshoot by finding my extensions local folder from my old profile, and I copied it to a new profile, but it didn't work. I am also wondering, if I do copy the extensions successfully, how can I also copy the settings preferences? Any solution is appreciated, thank you!

Clarification on Nightly Firefox versions to release schedule

Hello, if I'm running 101.0a1 (2022-04-15) (64-bit) nightly, does that mean this version will be in the 101 release (5/31/2022) or the 102 release (6/28/2022)

The reason I'm asking is that the minimum TLS 1.2 restriction (no override in the error page) was previously stated as being part of the 102 release. Here is my original question

Release Schedule: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Release_Management/Calendar

Just would like to know for sure, if possible, thanks!

I am trying to use the profiler. I have added the button as stated in https://profiler.firefox.com/, but when I hit Start Recording Firefox completely freezes and I have to quit it. My OS is Ubuntu 20.04. I have tried with version 91 in a virtual machine and it works fine. Have also tried with version 93 in a virtual machine with Fedora 35 and even though it lets me start recording, the moment I hit stop it freezes.

Hi,

For a long time, Firefox has been crashing when I try to open the ADS-B website for tracking aircraft.

This problem is intermittent.

ADS-B is a huge aviation safety improvement.

Because tracking of military aircraft is often prevented, I attributed the crashing to a crash signal from military aircraft departing the nearby airport.

There are privacy concerns that have led to a new system for ADS-B.

There is also an unrelated FAA-offered blocking feature for radar tracking which allows aircraft owners to block radar data from being viewed by the general public.

Today I learned that it is impossible to paste anything to the Mozzila Crash Reporter block.

I haven't found a way to see any relevant crash report info in the Activity Monitor feature.

I haven't updated Firefox to the newest yet because the last time I upgraded I found that the appearance of the tab bar had been changed, and it took too long for me to return to the desired previous appearance.

It is often not easy to go back to a previous Firefox edition.

I understand the need to solve problems via upgrades, especially security problems, but now our late 2013 Macbook Pro Retina is stopped at OS 13.6, and perhaps also stopped at Firefox 99.0.1?

Perhaps security fixes will soon be impossible.

Thanks for your consideration.

Whenever I click on a web search link that goes to Facebook, my Firefox browser back button is cleared. This makes it impossible to go back to my original search easily.

When I remember and notice, I open link in new tab to retain my history.
This started happening several months ago and can be frustrating when doing deep searches.
 I hope there is a security setting I am missing that is allowing Facebook access to my browsing history!
Thanks for your help!

Hi, so I noticed that the "WebGL Renderer String", which Firefox returns upon request, seems to be quite imprecise in some cases.

My desktop machine has a Nvidia Geforce GTX 650 Ti built into it.

Google Chrome for example returns the exact and correct renderer string: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0, D3D11-27.21.14.5671)"

Firefox instead seems to assign and return a more simple, generic renderer string, in my case: "ANGLE (NVIDIA, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 480 Direct3D11 vs_5_0 ps_5_0)"

This is of course a great feature in terms of privacy ("browser-fingerprinting"). Nonetheless I didn't find any information about the rules which are applied, before such a more generic renderer string is being returned by Firefox. It would be cool if someone could share an insight with me!

Best regards

Since at least last week (3/28/2022) Firefox has been running in the background utilizing at least 50% of my CPU, hurting performance in my PC games. I've checked settings and "About Mozilla Firefox" and both say "Firefox is being updated by another instance". Ending the process doesn't close the browser, and it will usually function fine for a little while, before resuming again.

I am trying to debug an application which places a fairly large JSON string (>20kb) into a key-value in the Indexed DB. Since the string is very long, it is truncated by the DevTools UI, which means that the JSON can no longer be parsed in the UI.

Is there any setting in Firefox that allows me to prevent the UI from truncating long strings?

Hi!

When Firefox 96.0 rolled out on my machine, I was surprised to see my old Firefox Quantum theme default to dark. I did not enjoy this new behavior, so I tried to downgrade to 95.0.2. After installing it, Firefox told me it couldn't load the user profile, as it was used on a newer version of Firefox.

I have no idea where exactly I read this, but some website contained an instruction to erase compatibility.ini and that would allow me to use the profile on older versions. Tried that and it actually worked. I did notice that, when Firefox tried to update, it would say it failed. I was hoping that, once I find a solution to the forced dark mode and I update Firefox, the problem would go away.

Fast forward a few weeks, I found AutoConfig and browser.theme.toolbar-theme option in about:config. So I updated Firefox manually and applied AutoConfig and my original problem was gone.

Fast forward more weeks, there is another update for Firefox. And Firefox was still unable to automatically update. So I tried reconstructing compatibility.ini, which I did fully. But Firefox still won't update.

At this point, it's been like 3 months with a crippled user profile and I must say I'm tired of updating Firefox manually.

Is there any way I can fix this profile? If not, what exactly should I copy over so all my preferences, cookies, addons and themes get carried over to a new one?
