I am trying to configure Firefox on macOS to not prompt the user to make it the default browser.

I am using the following script to create the profile and set the user preferences after installing Firefox by copying `Firefox.app` from the downloaded DMG: ```

  1. !/bin/sh

open -a Firefox.app --args -CreateProfile default sleep 1

write_userpref() { USER=$(whoami) PROFILE=$(ls -1 "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/" | grep -E "\.default$") cat << EOF > "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/${PROFILE}/user.js" // mandatory comment? user_pref("app.update.auto", false); user_pref("app.update.disable_button.showUpdateHistory", false); user_pref("app.update.enabled", false); user_pref("breakpad.reportURL", ""); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.topsites", false); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.section.topstories", false); user_pref("browser.tabs.crashReporting.sendReport", false); user_pref("browser.discovery.enabled", false); user_pref("browser.defaultbrowser.notificationbar", false); user_pref("browser.shell.checkDefaultBrowser", false); user_pref("browser.shell.didSkipDefaultBrowserCheckOnFirstRun", false); user_pref("browser.shell.skipDefaultBrowserCheckOnFirstRun", true); user_pref("browser.newtabpage.enabled", false); user_pref("experiments.enabled", false); user_pref("extensions.pocket.enabled", false); user_pref("toolkit.telemetry.enabled", false); user_pref("update_notifications.enabled", false); EOF }

write_userpref

open -a Firefox.app --args -new-tab -P default "about:blank" sleep 3 osascript -e 'quit app "Firefox"' sleep 2

open -a Firefox.app --args -P default about:blank ```

Here's the behaviour I'm seeing:

  1. Firefox starts to an `about:blank` tab, however there is a second "Firefox Privacy Notice" tab
  2. AppleScript quits Firefox
  3. Firefox starts to an `about:blank` tab, however it is now prompting me to make it the default browser

I do not want Firefox to prompt the user to become the default browser.

My ideal scenario is that Firefox starts without the "Firefox Privacy Notice" tab and without prompting me to make it the default browser. From the observed behaviour, this doesn't seem possible.

Can anyone tell me how I can accomplish this without user interaction or MDM?

Currently, when I try and open downloaded .txt files and .log files (that is, when I click on them directly from the download pop-up that appears at the top-right of the browser), Firefox inexplicably opens Aegisub on my machine as the app to use. This is in contrast to when I open it directly from within my file browser, where it opens the Kate text editor, as suggested by the default app option in the permissions of the filetype.

How do I change the apps Firefox uses to open downloaded files? I've tried going into my settings and looking at applications, but .txt and .log don't appear, so I'm not quite sure what to do.

I'm on Kubuntu 22.04.3 LTS, using the Firefox deb package.

I always keep two Youtube tabs open at all times on my computer. After a while of running, however, the site starts to get increasingly laggy, in a way that simply reloading the tab does not fix. (I am aware that this is likely a result of one of the extensions I have installed that affects Youtube's behavior, specifically SponsorBlock and Return Youtube Dislike, but I am not willing to uninstall these.) I also know of a "force reload" - pressing ctrl + shift + R instead of just ctrl + R in order to clear the cache or something.

However, whenever Youtube starts getting really slow, I instead like to do something I call "crashing the tab" - I open my system monitor, look for the current most CPU-intensive "Isolated Web Co" process, and end it. This pops up an error message in Firefox that says "Gah - your tab just crashed!" and offering me the option to restore it. After restoring it from this window, the performance is back to normal.

My question is, is this beneficial, or is it functionally identical to a normal force-reload? Is the improvement I see between this method and force-reloading the page just placebo? And if not, is there a simpler way to do it without opening a second program?

Hello, I administer a small fleet of Ubuntu desktops. For a variety of reasons we avoid using Canonical's Snap package version of Firefox.

Currently the fleet is using Firefox installed from the Mozilla Team PPA repo. However that repo can be incredibly slow and after reading about the new Firefox deb packages [1] from the Mozilla APT repository we would like to move to them. The problem is that these packages lack Apparmor profiles, so unfortunately my security team won't let me use them.

Would it be possible to add Apparmor profiles to these packages please? They would need to be applied only when an OS has Apparmor enabled, which may not be the default for Debian.

Thank you!

I using kubuntu (ubuntu with kde) 22.04 and firefox will not recognize my security key. There is a really good thread on this here. It is now closed.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1412073

One of the solutions is to install firefox from the mozilla server. On other forums, this is referred to removing snap and installing the debs. I haven't tried this.

Reading through the thread however, it seems like the snap version should work. The manufacurers id and product code for my Thetis FIDO2 usb key are present in the etc/udev/rules.d/70-snap.firefox.rules

This answer says to disable apparmor. I tried that, but it didn't work.

I have quoted this answer below.

This isn't actually a firefox problem. KDE Neon uses the firefox package from the Mozilla Team PPA and there's nothing wrong with that package. The problem is that Neon enables app armor on firefox which breaks access to password managers and security keys. sudo aa-disable usr.bin.firefox works around the problem by disabling app armor for firefox. aa-complain was not sufficient in this case.

Is there anything else I can try?

Hi,

I was using FF on Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS. Had version FF 120.x and playing video in Netflix worked fine. Then I updated to FF 124.x and playing video stopped with error F7355-1203.

I've checked the DRM setting and it is enabled, I checked addons and I have OpenH264 and Widevine installed, both set to always active.

I've checked installed codecs and I do have libavcodec58 installed. No update for that available via apt. I also have ffmpeg installed, no problem with that either. I can play Netflix videos in Chrome, but not in Firefox now. Something happened to Firefox when I updated from 120.x to 124.x. Today I updated to 125.x, same problem, Netflix video won't play.

I've unchecked the DRM setting and re-checked it, and that does reinstalled Widevine but does not fix the problem.

Any ideas what could be the cause?

I have Firefox on Windows, Linux, and Android. Anytime I use Firefox on a desktop, it sends me to Tornado Alley in Kansas. However, I am not in Kansas, and I don't have dog named Toto either. I am in the Detroit area. If I use other browsers, I don't have this problem. It only happens on desktop computers. On my cell phone it shows the correct location. I have already done the simple troubleshooting measure (for a year now: clearing cache, uninstall, reinstall, etc...) and NOTHING removes me from this Tornado Alley, Kansas location on the Firefox browser. If I use Chrome, Opera, Edge, etc... I don't get this problem. It must be something in the Firefox program.

For some time now, I've been experiencing the following issues with PiP:

  • The floating window opens in a random (and annoying) place and does not place itself automatically on the lower right corner as it used to (where I always move it, so it has no memory as it used to)
  • It's impossible to keep the "always on top" mode on by default, and I have to do it every single time
  • When I toggle windows, the PiP window is always the next one, even when it was not the one I switched from, and I have to always toggle twice for switching between two windows when I have a 3rd PiP window
  • When I change language using the keyboard shortcut, it changes the language on the PiP window, and I have to use the language icon bar. Then, the PiP window becomes activated, and I have to toggle back to the window I was working on before (on which I wanted to change language). I have the "separate languages for separate windows" option activated.

It's been some months now, and all those things were working before an update but never came back...

Does anyone know if there's a way of fixing these issues? I've tried things I found online but nothing seems to work.

Many thanks

Hi everyone,

I'm running Firefox which I compiled with vaapi support because I was trying to use hardware acceleration for videos, so I think this bug may have something to do with that. Every time I open a pdf file my browser instantly crashes. When I use troubleshoot mode I have no such issue. I then tried with a fresh all-default user profile with no add-ons, nothing, and still I crash when loading a PDF. Any pointers would be appreciated.
