The profile folder on the new installation is to be replaced with that from the old. So far so good, I've copied the profile folder from Windows and now want to exchange it for the profile folder on the new Ubuntu computer. Problem is that this is the very latest Ubuntu version (only a few weeks old) and there IS no profiles folder in Firefox!

What there is, is a profiles.ini file but I am reluctant to put it in there because it does not appear to have anything to do with the contents of the ex-windows profile folder.

There is an option to create a new folder but I'm not at all sure what this would do.

Hope you can help

Blessed be Karma

Dear mozilla community,

I cannot get firefox to start, and I need help to troubleshoot this. What I already did:

  • remove and reinstall (apt)
  • rename ~/.mozilla to trigger recreation
  • start using the command line
  • start in safe mode

The only symptoms are <defunct> processes (see screenshot).

I need more information to find out what went wrong. Where can I find this?


Details

  • apt
  • firefox_78.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1~mt1_amd64.deb
  • Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia

Good day, there is such a question, is it planned to release (or port) a Firefox browser for Ubuntu Touch? Unfortunately, the only browser available is "Morph", and it does not meet the requirements of many UT users. I'd love to see your browser on this platform, as convenient as for android and ios. Regards.

In my settings I have Firefox set to open PDFs using the app 'okular' (see screenshot). In my file browser, PDFs open in 'Okular' (see screenshot).

I'm running latest version of Kubuntu, with current updates.

While using Ubuntu 18.04.03 LTS and FF 71 When I go to www.Pluto.tv a free TV site and leave it running for about 40 minutes or more the message " a script on this page may be busy" this always happens both on Ubuntu and another Linux system. this problem does not occur on my Mac OS. the problem when left alone the CPU goes very high on the Linux system preventing any usefull usage of FF until it is closed and reopened.

The message that pops up suggests FF is interuppting something incorrectly. Anyone with a suggestion to stop this problem? Keeping in mind FF plays with no flawas for more than 40 minutes

Many preferences don't sync, and it is sooo annoying to change them again every time I log in into a new Firefox instance. Can you please get more options to sync, such as the ones mentioned in the title?

Related to this, extensions that are installed not for the first time should not open new tabs (or at least an option should exist for this). And the preferences from the extensions themselves should also be synced.

When i try to use Page Up or Page Down, or Cursor Arrow Keys on the keyboard, a webpage may go from top to bottom for example! When then attempting to page up, it goes up 1 page and then back down to bottom of page.

To compound the annoying problem, there is no Down Arrow at bottom of scroll bar. So we have to click and drag the scroll bar up and down to view a webpage. This is not normal behavior and we can't figure it out. It could be a setting we need to correct, but we don't know which one it is. (see comments below on requesting the PDF printout of FireFox settings)

Could someone please help us ... and perhaps it can help others as well. We could not find such a problem amung your "help topics".

Thank You!

I'm on Ubuntu 18.04, running Firefox 64.

I've tried importing directly through the wizard from chrome, and from chromium. I've tried importing through an html file (the html file itself is fine). Just literally nothing happens. I've tried running FF from console to see if there were any error messages, nope nothing.

Does this just not feature just not work at all?

Using Ubuntu 18.04 with KDE Plasma.

When a new mail arrives Thunderbird plays a sound and shows a notification, but when I'm not at the computer at that time I just miss new mails as there is no other indicator that a mail arrived. This used to be fixed by the New Mail Attention addon which made Thunderbird's icon flash in the panel until clicked, but "New Mail Attention is incompatible with Thunderbird 60.2.1". What now?

I tried deleting the localstore.rdf file but it did not help. When i try to unhide the menu bar there is a slight space appearing as you can see per the screenshot, so it seems to be there but not showing, which points to a problem possible outside of thunderbird...im not sure. any input is welcome.

I had screen tearing and graphical glitches when browsing. [layers.acceleration.force-enabled = true] solved screen tearing, but I still had some graphical glitches from time to time which now seem to have been fixed with [layers.force-active = true].

Could this be a working configuration on the long term? Currently it is running like a charm...

I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and had already turned off hardware acceleration and smooth scrolling without the desired results before trying the above-mentioned things. I also played around with the xorg.config.d settings of the OS...

-I'm using Ubuntu 14.04. -In November, 2018, Comcast/Xfinity changed a few of their email settings, eg POP3 port 110 changed to 995. They also mentioned that they prefer we don't use POP3 any more. It's moot, though! -In November, I suddenly stopped being able to receive. I've had their tech people help me set up as either POP3 or IMAP and neither works. After an hour (over two hours yesterday) they always end up saying it's Mozilla's problem. -I've uninstalled Thunderbird several times, including deleting hidden files that contained remnants. -I usually get the message ""Thunderbird failed to find the settings for your email account." -Other attempts give me "Configuration could not be verified - is the username or password wrong?", or "User name or password invalid." That is wrong! -On Xfinity's site, I can both send and receive directly from there. They claim this proves the problem is with you. -I'm suspicious that Comcast/Xfinity has changed their setup and Thunderbird hasn't been updated.
