Dear Mozilla Community members,

For a while now I get sort of an error message some time after Windows start (every time): "XULRunner Could not determine any profile running in backgroundtask mode!"

I managed to find out that XULRunner is connected to Mozilla but I haven't found any info about this particular message so far, therefore, I would appreciate your help solving this issue.

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards, Ewelina

Random videos will not load following 100.0.2 install.

These symptoms started @ May 21. (See attached file "Recently installed")

This problem is 100% reproducible at: https://www.reddit.com/r/CatastrophicFailure/

Lenovo Thinkpad x140e Windows 7 (all updates installed) Mozilla 100.2.8174

Scrolling down the Reddit page, videos will auto-play when exposed, and stop when scrolled past.

A video not loading/playing will occur on different posts/videos, but will ALWAYS occur. Once this occurs some previously exposed / played videos, when scrolling up, will play when exposed again, and some will not.

This will also randomly occur on Youtube (also observed on Twitter a few times) when multiple tabs are open. Sometimes closing other open tabs corrects the problem. Other times closing Firefox and relaunching is required and is 100% effective.

I have additional diag data / Inspector log files and page source if needed.

Thank you in advance for your help and consideration. - LudditePro

Hello,

Recently I was forced to install some "stuff" on my work laptop. Unfortunately, I am not quite sure what they installed. I have contacted my IT department and all I've gotten in response is that "we haven't blocked any browser or sites."

Since this update, I find that Gmail will eventually show an error and when I go to refresh the page, the loading screen never completes. Additionally, Youtube will eventually declare that I have no connection and at that point I can no longer open new browser tabs.

I have updated Firefox, used troubleshooting mode, removed extensions, turned off ad blockers (uBlock Origin), and nothing seems to work—these issues always appear again eventually.

I would greatly prefer to not use Chrome, so if there is anything I can do to fix these issues I would be all ears to know what it is.

Thank you, John

One aspect of Firefox I value is the ability to customize headers and footers on printed webpages. This ability is important for my work.

I customized the headers and footers in the about:config interface according to advice posted [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1323433|here].

Recently, these settings don't take effect when I print webpages to pdf. I've triple checked that the settings are correct, but every time I print, the header and footer remain in the Firefox default configuration. Inexplicably, my preferred settings do take effect if I set the destination to "Fax." All other destinations don't work.

Is there any way to make these settings work again? Sadly, this might be a dealbreaker for me if not.

Is there any way to reorder the URL bar back to how it used to be in older versions of firefox?

It doesn't make any sense to prioritise google search over bookmarks.

Is it possible to go to the older style where search is at the bottom and only becomes the priority match when nothing else can be found.

"Search suggestions" are disabled. Autofill is also disabled. The problem also occurs on a fresh install inside a VM, so I doubt it has anything to do with userchrome/about:config

Thanks.

Hi I'm using Firefox to open PDF files from a network directory. The reason is that it's probably the best PDF manager I can find.

  • What I wanted to do was have an option to open the file in a native viewer such as Adobe, this way look at 2 parts of the document at the same time.

At the same time keep it in Firefox.

Is there a setting to do this or an add-on. The add-ons I've seen are meant to open directly to Adobe from a web link I think.

I managed to restore the single-spacing for bookmarks, kept a prior version of FF, and fought off nags to update every time I opened FF . . . until now when I was tricked into "allowing this app to make updates to your PC". It wasn't the usual nag button and I thought it was some kind of simple bug fix, but no, I was "upgraded" to v. 100.0.2 and my bookmark spacing fix was overwritten. Furious isn't strong enough to describe my reaction. All this time, and all the other complaints, yet I find no way to decrease the excessive spacing between bookmarks. I understand that this design may be better for those who use a finger on their screens, but what about us mouse-pointer users? Why are we so disrespected? What can I do to decrease the space between bookmarks?

Hi, I'm wanting to add QANTAS Shopping Points-Prompter to my add-ons. It says that it is available for Firefox but each time I try I get 'Oops, we can't find that page'. I've been liaising with QANTAS and they say there is no issue at their end, and I have downloaded it with other programs i.e. Chrome. Can you assist me please as I would prefer to use Firefox but that won't be possible if I can't get this add-on.

Issue When opening a link from any other app, the Firefox switches to another virtual desktop if there's an existing Firefox window open.

Reproduce the Issue

  1. Set Firefox to default browser
  2. On Windows 10, open 2 virtual desktops. Use Task View button in Taskbar or use keyboard shortcut Win + Tab and then click on New Desktop. Now you should see 'Desktop 1' and 'Desktop 2', if Task View is opened again.
  3. On Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window.
  4. Switch back to Desktop 1 from Task View.
  5. Open any link (E.g.: https://www.mozilla.org/) from any other app like MS Word, MS Teams, etc.
  6. The virtual desktop would switch to Desktop 2 and open the link on exiting Firefox window.

Question Is there a way to open the link on same virtual desktop in a new window?

Improvement - If it already doesn't exist. Instead of opening the link in existing Firefox window on Desktop 2, open a new Firefox window on Desktop 1 to open the link.

About a week ago, Firefox stopped updating the fonts on Canva art boards. I have attached a screen shot to show that the font name is correct (shown in the menu bar), but it is not reflected on the art board. The screenshot also has a popup of the image downloaded which shows the same font as in the menu bar.

I have used Canva in Firefox of years! I am now having to use Chrome and Edge. I would prefer Firefox. Please fix the problem.

The Washington Post has a feature on some articles called "Listen", where the article is read aloud on the device audio. I often use this because my vision is not as good as it used to be, and I can listen while I perform other tasks (e.g., cook). There is an example at this URL: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2022/05/24/trump-picks-primaries-perdue-lose-dangerous/

Click "Listen" just above the first text of the article.

This is FF 100.0.2 on Windows 10 21H2 build 19044.1706

I do use the Malwarebytes add-on, but it doesn't work even when I disable it and the FF tracking protection is turned off.

It does work in both Edge and Chrome, with Malwarebytes enabled.

This is very disappointing ...
