Prior to ~1 week ago, my process of using Firefox was as follows:

  • Open a new tab, search for something, click through a few links

If I couldn't find anything relevant in the first page of results, I'd navigate back to the Firefox Home Page and try another search. I hate going past the first page of results!

However, as of ~1 week ago, I can no longer navigate to the Firefox Home Page - why is this?

Twitch, Youtube Live, Netflix, Kick... it seems any live streaming platform cannot play. I am running Linux Mint 21.3, Kernel 5.15.0. They work on a different browsers, they all also work on Firefox my laptop, which is also on the same OS and Kernel.

I have tried everything: installed ffmpeg, installed unrestricted ubuntu codecs, refreshed firefox (twice), uninstalled/reinstalled firefox, ive tried without extensions, yet nothing.

Cant for the life of me figure it out, im not sure if its my PC or Firefox on this machine.

Problem loading images on Home Depot website. It happens when you want detailed images of a product. This is not just one linux distribution. Its many of them. In the case of Ubuntu same problem with Snap version. Whether .deb or Snap doesn't matter.

I've got a test machine with 10 ssd's in it. I switched over to Ubuntu 24.04 that I installed/configured several months ago. Before updating I checked Firefox. It was version 125. No problems with Home Depot. Updated system. Firefox updated to 128.0. Home Depot wouldn't load images anymore. Did all the usual stuff like disabling a couple of extensions. There are only two. Adblock Plus and Weather. Other than that no changes to Firefox that would be a problem.

I've got Google Chrome installed on these machines too. Home Depot no problem. Images of product load and display fine.

I don't order much on Home Depot so using Google Chrome is not a problem for me. But it is annoying and I know I'm not the only one. Seen it posted in a few forums with no resolution. Also, I have not had any problems with Amazon or Lowes website.They are similar in that they display detailed images of each product. I'm not implying that Home Depot is the only one. Just that its the only one I have discovered. If I recall correctly 127.x may have been where it started. The general images of many products don't seem to be a problem.

Thanks, Gerald

I'm talking about how when you go to fill out a text input, it'll suggest that input next time you go to a similar field. Well, that system just saved my social security number as an input after I filled out a government form. I would like to turn this feature off now, and delete the history of it if I can. Is there a way I can do that?

I'd attach an example image of a different website, but the box goes away when trying to take a screenshot.

For a long time I've used Firefox on Linux with multiple instances each with their own profile folder. Today when I try to run these instances with separate profile folders I get the following error:

> Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

Profiles are created like this:

firefox --new-instance --createprofile "PROFILENAME ~/.firefox-PROFILENAME"

They are run like this:

firefox --new-instance --profile "~/.firefox-PROFILENAME"

It seems something has broken with the instance isolation as this is now throwing an error. Additionally I run "createprofile" it doesn't seem to actually create the folder.

I am using Linux Mint with Firefox 127.0.2 (64-Bit)

In Preferences Applications, setting

opens edless new firefox Tabs - so I had to kill firefox. (setting CSV-Dokument to open with OpenOffice works fine. But this is not what I want.)

In Preferences Applications, I found further CSV types: application/csv-Typ CSV Document (application/text) CSV Document (octet/stream) CSV Document (application/x-download) Which applications should I use for them ?

I found the file "mimeTypes.rdf". However, I am not familiar with the syntax.

Every time I open Firefox after closing it, I get the message below. I can click the button to restore session and it works every time. With each update, I hope to never see this message again, but after installing a new version on Ubuntu today, I see the same familiar message. This is not linked to a computer, or an operating system because I've seen this on both Ubuntu and Mac. If Firefox could literally just click the button that would be awesome.

Sorry. We’re having trouble getting your pages back.

We are having trouble restoring your last browsing session. Select Restore Session to try again.

I am using Firefox 127 on Ubuntu.

When I press the Control key, I often lose focus in the window I am currently viewing. This is annoying as it prevents me from copy-pasting for example.

Sometimes the focus is back when I release Control, sometimes it is lost and I have to click again on the text field. It does not happen on all websites, for example support.mozilla.org works well, but it happens on duckduckgo or overleaf.

It does not seem to be the same as existing issues such as [the "show mouse when press Ctrl" of Ubuntu] (it is disabled) or an addon (the problem still happens in safe mode).

In case it is useful, when I press Control the tab bar background goes slightly darker, see attached images.

Thanks for your help :) Nicolas

I woke up this morning to my home directory having been remounted as read-only (it has its own dedicated hard drive at /dev/sdd1). I ran e2fsck and things looked good, so I restarted and things were fine again.

However, whenever I open Firefox, it hangs for about 1 full minute before it goes haywire and renders the entire system essentially unusable since being able to access my home directory is vital. The following is visible in dmesg:

All other programs that I use daily do not cause this issue. No clue what to do here. LibreWolf works fine - that's what I'm using now that Firefox breaks everything and basically forces me to restart if I want to use my computer normally.

Hi! I'm using Firefox 126.0 on Fedora 39.

Pages from Amazon.co.uk load very slowly, incompletely, or not at all. All other Web sites are fine.

I had a couple of certificate-related errors saying that the identity of the site couldn't be verified, but I can't reproduce the problem, so I can't quote the exact wording, I'm afraid.

The same Amazon pages load properly in Chrome on the same machine, and they load properly in Firefox in a VM on the same machine. That tells me network connectivity must be fine.

I've tried disabling all extensions, reverting to the default theme, running in Troubleshoot Mode, clearing cookies and site data, clearing the startup cache, disabling hardware acceleration, and creating a new profile. The new profile helps slightly, in that it loads more of the page before getting stuck. Nothing else helps at all.

I'd prefer not to refresh Firefox if I can avoid it, because I don't want to lose all my plugins and settings. This installation is five years old. Besides, a new profile didn't fix the problem.

What's the next thing to try? I'd really appreciate any ideas.
