I have been facing this problem for quite sometimes. I have set the download location of Firefox browser to the Download folder of my laptop /home/inferni/Downloads. But sometimes when I download any file the file gets downloaded to a different location of my laptop /tmp/mozilla_inferni0/<filename> . This gets really annoying when I have to work on the file and it is nowhere to be found in the download location of my laptop and then I have to open the browser and track the file via the download section.

I tried to reset the download location and even reinstalled the browser but of no use. Earlier I used to work on ubuntu 18.04 LTS and then I switched to Fedora 32 but still the problem persists.

Thank you!

Cannot update self-hosted add-on due to "Certificate issuer is not built-in" error

I have a custom add-on that I'm working on for my team. It's hosted internally on a server signed by our company's internal CA. The add-on is signed by Mozilla, but not hosted on AMO.

I am on the latest version of Fedora running Firefox 81.0. In the browser console I get this error relating to the URL for the addon when I tell Firefox to check for updates: "Certificate issuer is not built-in".

I have the company CA installed and when I navigate to the site in the browser, Firefox recognizes the cert. I've done some reading on the subject and seen several threads about it. I've tried a few things already, but most of the threads where a couple of years old.

I'm asking the question here hoping to figure out what the current state of the problem is and which settings I should tweak to have it trust the company CA or what my options are.

Thank you in advance for any support on the issue.

My understanding is when silent print is enabled by print.always_print_silent, browser will take default printer.here default printer value get from print_printer. if print_printer value is empty , it will take from system default printer. so if i change the default printer dynamically , browser will automatically detects the printer. Am I right?

Hi all,

I run Firefox 81 from Arch Linux, fresh updated.

My system recognize correctly the smart card reader and when I plug my cards off and on, unfortunately if I try to log into websites using the certificate stored in my card, it simply doesn't find any certificate nor smart card.

As displayed in attached image, firefox shows the smart card reader with the status "not present", not matter if the card is plugged on or off.

If I switch to Windows 10, Microsoft edge recognize correctly certificates on my smartcard and allows my to log in, but, unfortunately, Firefox doesn't find smart card reader neither on Windows 10.

Any suggests? Thank you all in advance for your support, Best regards! Alberto

Turning it on again and restarting the browser makes it run smoothly again. I am using Xubuntu Focal Fossa LTS.

Anyone has any idea as to why this is happening?

Same problem with Manjaro on Raspberry Pi 4 - when "Title bar" is disabled video performance gets quite sluggish - I tested a lot to find out which one of my settings was problematic ... I don't know why this little modification behaves that strange, but it is quite a big deal for slow or energy efficient hardware ...

I use Firefox Enterprise on both Windows and macOS, this alone is the single reason why I gravitate towards Firefox the most, it might be even my main browser, I really don't know which is since I have at least 2 opened at any given time, normally 3 or 4. The best part of it is that I don't have to set it up, it's all done. I use Firefox Sync just in case I use Firefox somewhere else, like a phone or Linux, or to push a page to another device (really, it's pulling the history bc push has never worked) but I can live without it.

When I use Firefox on Linux though, it's a night and day experience, it feels like I have to setup Firefox from scratch even after logging into Firefox Sync, it's only synced selectively mostly cares about useless stuff or stuff that I wouldn't let the browser save, like passwords, partly (but very little) because of privacy but mostly because I use a ton of browsers, I can't micromanage each. I even disable all of this via policy and that's what I'm looking to do, find how to deploy policies on Linux clients. I assume is just a config file like the preference list on Macs, even if it's not automated it should be easy to make available centrally a pull it on demand and drop it in the right place with some script but I have to find how's it done first and what settings will there be supported, none of that available in the documentation of Firefox Enterprise.

Fedora Server 32 now comes with an easy GUI for 389 DS (not FreeIPA for some reason) and a deployment tool for desktops both as Cockpit modules, which is also the GUI used by Red Hat in a lot of their products, OpenShift for instance. I wonder if I could use this to deploy Firefox settings. It even connects to Active Directory out of the box, if it could only process Windows policies... anyway. Is there some obscure documentation, maybe in beta, that goes over any of this?

Thanks.

In previous versions of Firefox, I could view a web page with various links, and I could select a link to open in a new tab. Once I was finished in the new tab, I could close the new tab, and return to the original web page, and find the previously selected link because it still had a rectangle outline around it.

In the latest versions of Firefox, this rectangle no longer appears, so it's impossible to know where I was on the original web page.

Is there a way to get this feature back?

I'm doing some testing regarding mutual SSL authentication, and when I try to add the .pfx certificate that I generated, I get "The PKCS #12 operation failed for unknown reasons" as the error, and the certificate doesn't get added.

I tried this on another browser, and there was no problem regarding the usage of the certificate, so I can assure the certificate, its data, or the generation process was wrong.

I'm currently using Firefox 80.0.1 64-bit for Ubuntu.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am a Linux user. So I have a folder called .moziila. Firefox use this folder to save settings and so on. If you are a Windows user you also have this folder C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla.

So I have a folder (Linux) /home/name/.mozilla/firefox/rt7gtt8p.default/ (I will call it System Folder later)

If I would be a Windows user I would have this folder here: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\xxxxxxxx.default (I will call it System Folder later)

But I want to have a folder called "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder. I had it and I want enable it folder again.

How can I enable "sessionstore-backups" in System Folder? My goal is to have a file called recovery.jsonlz4. Without this folder Firefox will not create recovery.jsonlz4 for me. So I don't have a folder "sessionstore-backups" and I don't have a file called "recovery.jsonlz4" but I want to have it, but how? Maybe I need to add something to about:config?
