Hi I am looking for a way to disable the Firefox Welcome Page on first run, via script, or registry or config file, I have it coming up on over 1000 Windows 10 pc's running Firefox 64 bit 78.02

I have tried many things and nothing I have done seems to suppress the welcome page.

I tried setting all to blank and none have worked

startup.homepage_welcome_url

startup.homepage_welcome_url.additional

startup.homepage_override_url

Also I have tried in the Policies.json file the following. The welcome page still comes up.

{

   "policies": {
       "OverrideFirstRunPage": "",
       "OverridePostUpdatePage": ""
   }

}

I have a customer who is unable to browse to any websites after version 81.0.2 was installed. They are also unable to open Options and other Menu items. Only Toolbar Menu item that worked was Help > About. I have tried using Firefox in Safe Mode, I have refreshed Firefox, and I have renamed the AppData > Roaming > Mozilla folder forcing it to create a brand new user profile. The only security programs running are Windows Defender. Chrome and Edge work fine, so customer will use one of those until Firefox is fixed.

Alright, I use Firefox like normal, but sometime today it stopped working, I get "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible" error, I looked it up using safari, followed every possible interpretation of the instructions to no avail, I deleted the profiles folder and file, in both cache, and application support, on both my user folder and global HDD folder, no fix whatsoever, I don't know why this isn't working (yes I checked the hidden files, I searched my entire HDD and found no results for anything remotely named "Profile"/"Profiles" and I don't know what else to say.

I have checked: Application support (on every user) & Cache (on every user)

I don't know what's up, I also reinstalled Firefox after deleting everything related to it and I just don't know.

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

hello, i have a Raspberry Pi 4 with 4GB and Raspberry Pi OS installed. (2020-05-27-raspios-buster-armhf.zip)

when i use the stock Firefox ESR (installed via sudo apt install firefox-esr) and watch videos (e.g. on Youtube, Vimeo, ...), Firefox does crash some times. according about:crashes, i already have submitted about 60 crash reports.

but watching the reports one thing is missing. when i open firefox from the console i can see some output, that is not appearing in the reports.

... firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed.

Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead Firefox ESR crashes when playing videos on Raspberry Pi OS (Debian)

during watching videos in firefox there is more different output to see that seems to be harmless. but always and only this line is printed to console, just befor Firefox crashes: firefox-esr: /build/firefox-esr-RgOFaD/firefox-esr-68.11.0esr/media/libcubeb/src/cubeb_alsa.c:1255: alsa_stream_get_position: Assertion `delay >= 0' failed. so i assume this is the main reason, why Firefox crashes on my system.

any idea how i can get these issue fixed? at the moment when i want to watch videos reliable i am be forces to use the external VLC Player by copy the url to VLC - at least for Youtube videos. but i want to watch videos from other web pages as well and i prefer to watch videos in firefox directly.

I just upgraded to Firefox 77, x64, Windows 10 2004.

Firefox 76 already broke LockWise - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1287008

Now Firefox 77 breaks 99% of all websites. (See attached screenshot.) www.example.com www.google.com www.wikipedia.org etc

Somehow, support.mozilla.org works, UNTIL I try to log in.

I've tried incognito mode, safe mode, etc. When I change charset of the page, the text displays differently, but it's still a useless mishmash.

--- BUT --- when I open developer tools, click the HTML request and click the Response tab, the HTML renders correctly there.

Well, I used to use the mozilla repo, encountered the issue, switched to the openSUSE repo (slightly older builds) where all worked and now the issue is back...

After updating all packages, Firefox no longer launches and instead I get the little Window shown in the attached screenshot.

I have zero idea why and how - though it does seem like someone didn't do their testing properly...

According to YaST2 this is Firefox 78.0.2-1.1-x86_64

The installed packages for Firefox are (all from "vendor OpenSUSE") MozillaFirefox MozillaFirefox-branding-upstream MozillaFirefox-translations-common

There is also the kmozillahelper for the Plasma Desktop. - zypper ref and zypper dup confirm that the system is up to date.

When I go to all the pages for downloading and installing the newest Firefox, I am always able to download a package, which appears as a folder labeled " firefox-89.0.2.tar.bz2 " but then I cannot install it, it just appears as a folder full of files that will not run. I have tried following the command lines in the terminal that these pages claim will make the new version run, but I always just get a response like "no such command" or "no file exists." Shouldn't there be some relatively simple and reliable path to just get firefox 89 onto my computer?

I have been using firefox for years and am very happy with it. I have a Dell optiplex 7010 desktop. I am running Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS. I do not have a firewall turned on. Apparently, my desktop browser was updated to Firefox 78.0.1 (64-bit) on 7-1-2020. Since that time, I have been unable to access any websites from Firefox including mozilla.org. I am connected through WiFi. After downloading the Opera browser I have been able to access any website with no problems. I read community troubleshooting on this issue and tried various fixes including turning off IPv6. I read the community article about turning off my personal firewall. I was unaware of using any firewall so I installed Gufw Firewall 18.04.0. Running this program shows my firewall status is "OFF". I checked my AT&T modem and could not find any firewall settings that specifically mentioned Firefox. I would like to continue using Firefox since I use it on my phone and laptop also use it.

My laptop is a Dell Vostro 1520 running Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS 64 bit. It also accesses the internet through the same WiFi. It currently has no problems loading web sites with Firefox version 78.0.1

Please help.

When I've closed it, I've put the macbook on sleep mode and then reopen it after 10 minutes and tried to open firefox as always. It didn't. I'm trying to figure it out and I've followed all the possible paths on Mozzilla's support and others blogs, but none of them worked out. I've tried also to uninstall and re install firefox from scratch, but nothing happens: I still get the message. At this point I don't care if I need a fresh start, I have a bookmark's backups so, how can I really uninstall Firefox and install it from the beginning? Is there a hidden folder I'm missing?

Is the version of Firefox in the Linux repositories the China version with an American facelift?

I know you all do not have command and control of this, but I thought someone should be aware that the default Firefox browser for Linux installs seems to be the CCP Firefox and not American version. With all the CISA activity, it might be something to look into.
