I have been having problems accessing part of a membership site. Can't get past the first step, it doesn't work for me.

Kubuntu 20.04.4 LTS Release: 20.04 Codename: focal Firefox Version 98.0 (64 bit)

Have been informed from the website owner that the IT person has tested this with Explorer, Safari and Chrome, and all work. The IT support person then goes on to state - "....... that the client needs to use a different browser as Firefox is very outdated."

So, I was using the latest version and it is "very outdated"  ???

How can I respond ? Is there a training course for the IT person to deepen their skill level ?

Firefox seems to be blocking some element required for logging in to Dropbox. Any attempt to log in to Dropbox results in this message:

Your browser appears to be blocking dropboxcaptcha.com, which is required for authentication. To resolve this issue, please update any anti-virus or ad-blocking software settings to allow connections to dropboxcaptcha.com.

I have found the issue referenced [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1146181|once]before on this forum, and that solution does not resolve the matter: restarting Firefox in safe mode has absolutely no effect on this, and the problem manifests identically in whether safe-mode or not.

Details:

I am on Linux 64-bit, running Ubuntu 20.04, with Firefox provided by that distro's repo.

I am using KDE Ubuntu Linux OS on desktop CPU with Firefox browser.

When I went to sign in to a website. After I entered the user name and password the next step should be that requires a Google 2FA authentication code but the website goes blank. I refreshed site. Still a blank webpage.

The website will open correctly as expected using my Android cell phone using Firefox browser. Which is also where I have the Google Authentication app installed.

I had to use Brave to open the website. I am told by others Google Chrome will also work but I try to avoid both these browsers.

I have not added the 2FA sign in to Firefox main sign in yet. I intend to switch over to a Yubikey 2fa in the near future.

Any ideas?

I am using Firefox 96.0 running on Ubuntu 20.04. The procedure described on this site to create a desktop shortcut for a website (click on padlock, drag it to the desktop and release) does not work. A grayed image of the URL being dragged moves onto the desktop when dragged, but when the mouse button is released that grayed image springs back to the URL field.

I also tried the alternate procedure i.e. drag a shortcut from the Bookmarks menu onto the desktop. The same failure sequence as described above occurred.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I am having issues with opening link for external applications. The application can be What'sApp or Zoom or Slack and when trying to open an external app I get a windows that ask for me to select the application to open the link.. When doing this the only option have I have is System Handler and Choose Application.. Neither option is helpful.. This did not happen with firefox packaged with .deb .. I am assuming that this deal with snap sandbox security.. I later read an article

I did a little reading and came across a link https://ubuntu.com/blog/how-to-snap-introducing-classic-confinement

Which instructed on how to create a snap with --classic confinement.. I am not sure if this will resolve the issue that I am having .. But I didn't find that I could install firefox snap with the --classic option.. I am not that familiar with snaps so I could be completely off but wanted to know if someone could look into it..

I would like to add an image but it doesn't seem like firefox will allow me to on this page. (Browse is not opening a window) Also copy and paste didn't work

For quite a while I am using Firefox and had no issues, but recently, with new version , I am constantly facing two issues 1. the initial load of a page takes more then 30 seconds , sometimes 1 minute, but after the first page has been loaded if I open another page , it will be as usual 2. Completely random and without any sign of slowing down the OS - the OS freezes - nothing works at all and I have to restart it using the power button.

I'm struggling with firefox crashing every few days or so. Unfortunately, pretty often there is no crash report. Is there a way I can sanely get to the bottom of this?

It happens to me more often with Cisco Webex than other scenarios, but there are also completely unrelated crashes.

This is Ubuntu 20.04 and standard firefox package installation. I haven't yet turned off the extensions:

 feedbro
 gnome shell integration
 stylus
 uBlock origin

I hesitate to disable them since most are important to my work.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello,

Recently, I updated ubuntu to the latest version, and had set Firefox as my primary browser (as I normally did).

I, however, could no longer access to the local hidden directories, i.e.: .local, etc., with this version. I even tried to disable Firefox sandbox security, security.sandbox.content.level = 0, and changed chown/chmod to the lowest levels, but those didn't help.

The issue can be repeated via the URL in Firefox as followed:

file:///home/y2021x/.local

or any other hidden directory. I could open these files/directories in the older versions of Firefox.

Am I overlooking something? I appreciate very much if you could help me find out the solution to this problem. Thank you very much.

This the second time I am entering this problem -- the first time Firefox refused to let me return to this site.

First, I am running Firefox on Ubuntu, but Ubuntu is not relevant because the same issue occurs in Windows.

Whenever I access a file, for example, one at https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Chioneosoma, its color (which is programmable) changes from a light bluish green to a deeper violet. Where is this color-difference stored? I have thousands of WikiSpecies files I have accessed, and they all show the violet "accessed" color if I ever have opened the file to read its contents. The problem is that when Ubuntu has to be reinstalled, I can add references to all my files, but the color-changes seem to be lost. This is a serious issue, because I currently have over 50,000 files referenced (and saved in my directory file:///home/jwill/Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8) and am still adding to them!

I think the storage location must be somewhere in one or more of the following files ('_' replaced '/'):

   _home_jwill_.mozilla
   _home_jwill_.cache_mozilla_firefox 
   _home_jwill_.cache_MM_firefox
   _usr_lib_firefox

Can you please tell me where the list of accessed files is stored? Whenever I enter a referenced directory, to access it, the color changes; so, Firefox must be able to store a reference to each new referenced directory name.

On certain websites this "Geckomain" process destroys my CPU to 100% and maxes my network traffic with more upload traffic than download, using a lot of my data and bandwidth etc. This is a major concern because I have to pay for my data, it's not unlimited. If left open this process will consume more than 1.5gb of RAM while nothing functions. The only way to stop it is to leave the website. I have to use these websites for my job, so I can't just avoid them. I need a resolution ASAP. Thank you.

Version 92.0 (64 bit) Ubuntu: 18.04, 20.04

For a couple of months, I have not been able to resize the FF window. Consequently, I abandoned FF for Chrome. I've just upgraded my os to Ubuntu 20.04 (from 18.04) so I thought I'd try FF again. The problem persists.

Minimize/Maximize work fine, but when non-maximized, the resize "handles" don't show up (see attached image). I've tried safe-mode, as suggested by some previous post, but it hasn't helped.
