I am running Ubuntu 18.04 and the current version of firefox is 112.0.1. The problem has occurred on two different machines.

My Friday routine normally involves updating my computers. Normally, I start firefox and get some preliminary work things out of the way before using sudo apt-get update/upgrade (sudo apt update) to update my system.

However, firefox has interjected and updated itself twice in the past month or so. When it says it has done the update and needs to be restarted, I click the button and it restarts. This would not be a problem since it was going to get updated anyway, however, when I go to start sudo apt-get upgrade to update the rest of my system, I get the following error:

E: Could not get lock /var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend - open (11: Resource temporarily unavailable) E: Unable to acquire the dpkg frontend lock (/var/lib/dpkg/lock-frontend), is another process using it?

This lock traces back to firefox and persists for several hours. The first time I assumed something weird just happened resulting in the lock not being released when firefox restarted after its update. However, since this is the second time that it has happened there is something going on with your updater not releasing properly. Normally, the lock is released immediately after the updating software is finished updating, however, this is not the case with firefox right now.

Please fix this bug.

Hi, I've been struggling with this for months and can't find an easy solution or a good explanation. I'm running Ubuntu 22.04 pretty basic, I don't have many custom repositories enabled or anything, just a few additional packages like slack, Teams or Chrome. Ubuntu switched Firefox to snaps as well, and I can't get internet access with it. The error message is:

--- May 12 12:16:20 nuc kernel: [12948.381392] audit: type=1400 audit(1683886580.562:131): apparmor="DENIED" operation="open" profile="snap.firefox.firefox" name="/etc/fstab" pid=7731 comm="firefox" requested_mask="r" denied_mask="r" fsuid=1000 ouid=0 May 12 12:15:43 nuc rtkit-daemon[1030]: message repeated 3 times: [ Supervising 10 threads of 4 processes of 1 users.] May 12 12:16:20 nuc dbus-daemon[790]: [system] Activating via systemd: service name='org.freedesktop.hostname1' unit='dbus-org.freedesktop.hostname1.service' requested by ':1.175' (uid=1000 pid=7731 comm="/snap/firefox/2645/usr/lib/firefox/firefox " label="snap.firefox.firefox (enforce)") ---

Simply stopping (and aa-teardown) doesn't work at all, Firefox doesn't even start without apparmor running. I'm not an expert with apparmor, but I wanted to set in complain mode instead enforce, but I'm struggling with that, too. I didn't touch the /etc/hosts file, the error message is a little different on another Ubuntu 22.04 computer I use, there it complains about permission denied for the resolve.conf. So I'm asking the community, how do you deal with this? Searching the web gives me all kinds of ideas, but none of them work. Could anyone help me out here?

Thanks!

Hello, I would like to report an issue with Firefox 113.0 cannonical-002 1.0 on Ubuntu 22.04 lts. When opening 5-8 tabs, the browser consumes a lot of memory. When the system's RAM usage, along with the browser, reaches 80% of the computer's memory capacity (12Gb is the full size of the machine RAM), the browser crashes without generating any crash reports and does not restart itself. Interestingly, using the same browser on the same hardware, but on another OS, Windows 10 with the latest stable version of the browser, with the same themes and add-ons, the issue is not observed, and memory usage is much lower.

Could you please suggest a solution to this issue and help prevent these crashes from happening?

Thank you for your time and assistance.

I want to attach a file and I click on a button (everything works perfectly on Chrome). When I click, in the console I get this error:

Of course, nothing happens when I click. I have Ubuntu 22.04 and apparently Firefox in installed with snap, and I have this problem since snap is used to install Firefox.

If it's useful:

This message is the last I'm writing before I definitely move to Chrome. I hope I'll get the help I couldn't find on other places (I saw a lot of answers telling to deactivate snap, adding a ppa or some solutions like these).

When browning some site will cause a Firefox to freeze, all UI stops working, if I try and reload the page nothing will load and if I try and close and reopen Firefox I get a zombie process that last for about a minute. Obviously this is with no ad dons or hardware acceleration and nothing is listed at about:crashes. The only useful tip I have comes from the command prompt. First when the freeze is first triggered I get the errors ``` MESA: error: Failed to query drm device. libEGL warning: egl: failed to create dri2 screen MESA: error: Failed to query drm device. libEGL warning: egl: failed to create dri2 screen ``` and when I try and open it after a freeze and there is still a zombie Processes ``` [Parent 111218, IPC I/O Parent] WARNING: process 111455 exited on signal 15: file /build/firefox-RH6krf/firefox-115.0+build2/ipc/chromium/src/base/process_util_posix.cc:264

``` and finally when it kills the zombie processes ``` RunWatchdog: Mainthread nested event loops during hang:

--- CanvasManagerParent::Shutdown

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 111871 ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ``` the included images are what pops up when trying to open Firefox when it still has a zombie processes and when it kills the process

On Ubuntu, drag and drop has broken for me. My mouse cursor does not seem to react to different types of content, like hovering over links. My main problem is that if I highlight a piece of text, or some other content block on a page, and drag it, it does not work as smoothly as it should.

Has anyone else experienced this recently?

I find closing Firefox helps temporarily but within 10-15 minutes the same problem occurs.

I have re-installed Firefox and I am running the latest version. I haven't experienced the problem in Safe Mode.

It only occurs on Firefox and is browser-wide.

Firefox will no longer display the main window. I get an icon in my taskbar but the window is nowhere to be found. I've tried the tricks of maximizing it and moving it but neither works. I have found that if I locate the xulstore.json file it will work but only for a short time. Next time I start Firefox I get an icon but no window. Very frustrating!

The sulstore.json file contains nothing that suspicious:

``` {"chrome://browser/content/browser.xhtml":{"main-window":{"screenX":"2129","screenY":"777","width":"1280","height":"1040","sizemode":"maximized"},"sidebar-box":{"sidebarcommand":"","style":""},"sidebar-title":{"value":""}}} ```

If I start Firefox and right-click the icon, select maximize it's as if it's maximized covering all my windows but yet invisible. I can see my other windows but I cannot interact with them.

Deleting the xulstore.json file often fixes this but it breaks again shortly. What's the deal???
