Hello!

I am a heavy user of Firefox: daily & around 8 hours a day.

I usually use alt+shift+left/right-arrow to select a few words to the right / to the left. With the latest update (mandatory because this is a work-administered) laptop, the new behavior is that tabs are changed.

I want any solution to revert this to standard (past) behavior (preferably not an extension). Looked around in about:config but could not find anything to toggle on/off.

This is highly annoying as I've had this workflow for literally years. Even opening this ticket I encountered the issue more than 3 times as I was phrasing the message and had to delete & rewrite some stuff while also have other tabs open in the same Firefox window.

Would highly appreciate your timely response!

Thanks a lot! -- John

I am trying to access websites that use three.js. When I initially start, the website runs too slowly to be usable, but if I tab out for some time and then tab back in, the website runs at normal speed for a bit before slowing down again. I cannot find any solutions to this problem nor anyone else who had the same problem as me.

Today for the first time after the latest update 127.0 (64-bit), my many firefox pages and tabs crashed and closed and a pop up to send crash report.

So I have fired up firefox again to find only a single page opens up, I have lost probably 16+ pages with multiple tabs on each, been like that for months, I have 32GB memory so there is normally no issues or slowness. However after the crash, even though only a single firefox page is open, windows task manager shows Firefox (20) and if I expand the task, I can see each firefox is taking lots of memory.

So it looks like the old session pages/tabs are still there somewhere but not accessible, I would like to get them back if possible. I went through reseting it to default, disabling the add ons etc but nothing has worked.

In the about:profiles page I can see that the Root Directory for my current profile is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 When I click the Open Directory button it does nothing. When I manually navigate to /home/username/.mozilla/firefox I can see that there is no folder there called no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978

The Local Directory is show as: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/cache/mozilla/firefox/no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 This exits and opens with the Open Directory button.

If I search for no9r1iq5.default-release-1681391696978 in the file manager, I see that there are two folders with this name, on at the Local Directory path shown above and the other at: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox My assumption is that this is actually the Local Folder (it contains files with today's date)

My question is, why does about:profiles show the wrong path for the Local Directory or why is the actual Local Directory in the wrong place (it appears that the path shown in about:profiles is the normal default location)?

I tried creating a new profile and it was created in exactly the same way: the Local directory path is: /home/username/.var/app/org.mozilla.firefox/.mozilla/firefox but about:profiles says it is: /home/username/.mozilla/firefox

I would rather have my profile in the normal default location but I want to ensure that I don't leave pointers to the wrong location that could cause problems.

I am running Firefox 121.0 (64-bit) from flathub on Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm).

Any help appreciated.

Good Morning. I have been using Firefox for 20+ years. Last night it did an update overnight, and this morning I am getting "The Page Isn't Redirecting Properly" error message on my business CRM site. This appears to be the only site having an issue. I have never had this error previously.

I tried all suggestions already including clearing cache/cookies, checking settings, delete history, troubleshoot mode and nothing. The site opens fine on Chrome and MS Edge.

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.

since the last update, the shortcut keys to highlight a word at a time left OR right are both highlighting the next word AND also jumping to the last tab. AGAIN! I noticed this was identified as a problem back around 2019 in a search. I now cannot move fluidly within text, nor highlight a word at a time quickly. Either it's whole line or simply a letter at a time... which results in a pretty incompetent, crippling experience. PLEASE FIX!!

In English, the meaning of this error is: Title: Configuration error Content: Failed to read configuration file. Please contact your system administrator.

I had this error for a long time. But it's not too serious. Just hit ok and I can use all the recovery tabs as before without any problems. But every time I open windows and open the browser, this message appears. I feel very uncomfortable and tired without knowing why. Even reinstalling the browser didn't fix the problem, I tried it before and lost my favorite browser theme. And 1 more thing if someone can explain. If it can't read the configuration file, how can I still use the browser? What does that configuration file do?

This message only appears when I have not opened the Firefox browser on my computer. If I already have the tab, I can open another firefox browser without that message appearing. Only when I close all tabs. Open it again and it will appear. And click ok to use normally.

I've been trying to sign in to pinterest, duolingo, etc using the 'sign in with google' option since my account was saved there. Whenever I click it, a sign in window opens up as usual, but it only ever shows a blank screen. No matter how long I wait, nothing shows up. I tried clearing cache, and it still didn't work. It worked before, but recently since the past 2 weeks, it became like this and I don't know how to fix it.

I have some extensions on my account so I'll list them out just in case one of them is the one making this problem: -Search by Image -Firefox Relay -uBlock Origin -DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials -TWP - Translate Between Pages -Ecosia

Hi Guys,

This is a recent hiccup and only seems to affect Firefox 126.0.1 & 127.0 (I'm running Win64 EME-free):

I have a HTML file which displays images from various weather-cam websites, using the HTML "img src=" tag.

On previous versions of Firefox all was fine, however since 126.0.1 one image in particular will not display - it simply shows a broken image place-holder. Using MS Edge and Chrome, it displays correctly.

This is the image in question:

http://119.17.143.158:8777/Streaming/channels/102/picture/?auth=U1BDRzo1NG5keXAwMW50IQ==

I suspect it's something to do with the "auth=" 'key'?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions/assistance.

Mike.

Hey there,

during work I often open two windows of Firefox to have more information visible on my two monitors. Unfortunately I sometimes forget that I have a second window open, so I close only my "main" window and loose all tabs.

Is there a way to force Firefox to ask to close a window and loosing multiple tabs for every window open?

Right now this only happens for the last open window.

PS: I just found out about the keyboard shortcut of restoring a window (CTRL+SHIFT+N) recently. I would prefer a setting in my case.

Thanks in advance Fred

Hi,

more Details concerning the problem you can see here ! It should be great if you could help us with some diagnostics, for example why the problem only appears with FF on Linux, not with FF on WIN.

STR:

  1. Launch Linux FF
  2. Visit this page "Potential issue with plugin PITM" (Preview here
  3. Because you will need an Account for visiting account please follow "Konto eröffnen" (Create Account) instructions).
  4. After my approval for the account please visit again "Potential issue with plugin PITM"
  5. Click "1.png" Below heading "Attachments", that should work without problems.
  6. Close image view
  7. Move Mouse pointer to image below heading "My test with a screenshot" – should become magnifier
  8. Now Click that image
  » Expected (and so it does with WIN): Big image opens in new TAB
  » Actual:  New TAB opens, but without image view.

What are your results? FF Linux Problem or something else?

But Youtube plays fine in Chrome and Edge.
