After Ubuntu updated the GPU driver, Firefox stopped rendering and only works when disabling hardware acceleration. See screenshot attached. I'm using ubuntu/ RTX4090 and nvidia-driver-535 (propietary, tested). Attaching the apt upgrade logs that caused this to happen. Firefox is the only application that suffers from this.

Is there any fix happening soon for this?

sync bookmark not working, import bookmark not working after install firefox in linux lite 6.6

I recently installed Firefox version 120.0.1 on Linux Lite 6.6 and logged in to my Mozilla and Firefox accounts, then synced my data. In the past, when I used Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, this method would display all the bookmarks I had saved on other devices that also use Firefox. However, for this case, syncing did not successfully display bookmarks in the Firefox toolbar.

I then tried exporting bookmarks to an HTML file, then importing them into the newly installed Firefox using the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open, so I couldn't import bookmarks.html into the new Firefox installed on Linux Lite 6.6. I also tried restoring from the Bookmarks Manager, but the window for selecting the HTML file did not open either.

Is there another way to transfer these bookmarks to the newly installed Firefox on Linux Lite?

Ark extracted Version 119 files into /home/Downloads/Firefox/Firefox. I tried ./update from the BASH command line, but didn't know which argument(s) to add to that command. I'm hoping to update Firefox 78.14 ESR to a recent version, whether ESR or not. Thanks for your help.

I am running Firefox 122.0 on Ubuntu 22.04. When I have a decent number of tabs open, firefox will often randomly decide to lock up completely. GUI is almost entirely unresponsive. I can right click the menu bar area and get the Menu Bar/Bookmark Options/etc. context menu, but it's also screwed up (2 options that are normally there are completely missing). This has occurred for a year or so. Originally, I used the snap version but recently backed up and switched to installing from .deb. Still the same issue. I saw recommendations for turning off hardware acceleration, and that didn't prevent the problem. Running `top`, I see that I always have plenty of memory (at least 10G free) free and worst case 1 thread is being run 100% but the others are hardly being utilized. No crash reports are generated (I will pkill firefox to stop it). Addons and extensions are all disabled.

I recently realized that hitting the windows key with firefox frozen will allow the web page to show again, but it's back to frozen. I keep hitting the windows key, and it will unfreeze just momentarily to show me the current webpage that is up. I can also Ctrl+N and open a new window, and the new window works perfectly fine independent of the completely frozen first window.

I've looked for solutions, some had weird MTU settings, some needed to enable hardware acceleration in Chrome, but haven't found a solution that works. Created a new profile to try that out, but still no dice.

I can do a test recording in Google Meet, which displays my video just fine, but when playing back, it's just a black screen, and that is also what happens if I share my screen. Participants get a lot of black.

I've been using Firefox with Google meet for many years, and never had this problem before. I did report the issue in Meet, but it's not likely to attract much attention from Google.

Suggestions much appreciated.

Is it normal that we should install an extension to be able to open a specific url when opening a tab. That don't work because of x-frame options.

We already can add a custom url for new windows, so why not for tabs.

Firefox is taking weird directions.

Hello everyone. Well, I've been using Firefox for a few months, maybe a semester now, I don't remember. But the point is that since yesterday I have been facing a serious problem of not being able to download any type of file (MP4, PDF, .JSON, ISO, etc.). I've already used the troubleshooting mode and I've also restarted my laptop, but it didn't help. I've also gone to the advanced settings (see 'about:config > browser.download') and reset/deleted the data for each command but the problem still persists.

What happens is the following: I click to download the file in question, however, nothing happens other than the page loading that commonly occurs when downloading something. Still, the file does not appear in the downloads tab and there is not even the option to choose where to save the file (e.g. Downloads folder, Documents folder). The download simply appears to have failed.

Exactly, it 'appears', because today I discovered that all my downloads were being directed without my permission/action to the 'downloads' folder (And that's not where I want them to go). The problem would be smaller if only this happened, as I would then just get the files downloaded there and then change to the desired folder, thus trying to move forward despite the problem. But the downloaded files themselves are not operational, they have the icon when a file is still downloading, in addition to not having a name, everything being just a cluster of codes.

In the end, there are files, large and small, that have no use and that I don't even have control over where to direct them. Which is still a huge problem because I still technically can't download anything from the browser. Please, I really need your help on how to resolve this problem.

Note: Also, when I close and open the browser, the first download I try appears in the downloads tab, but it fails instantly and cannot be resumed, making it an eternal failure.

Hi,

Using Firefox on Fedora Silverblue (technically ublue), I'm getting stutters and skips through youtube videos. Have messed with combinations of hardware accel, wayland mode, and vaapi, but nothing seems to have helped. Videos work fine in vanilla Chrome.

Hardware is an AMD 7840u framework laptop.

I am working on a website that uses Unicode extensively. Some glyphs do not show correctly. In particular U+2A75, which is double equals. I am using Ubuntu, and I have installed Unifont. In the image, I have opened Firefox on the right and Chromium on the left, the URL is https://www.compart.com/en/unicode/U+2A75 Chromium is displaying the page correctly, Firefox is not. However, in both cases, the character is correctly displayed in the text in the Tab header after the favicon. browser.display.use_document_fonts is set to 1 I have read the Support page on editing fonts. Inspecting the element as suggested in the 'Editing Fonts' page, (see 2nd image uploaded), I see - in the source pane on the left, the character is correctly displayed (as in the tab text) - the Font being used to display the character in the rendered HTML is 'Source Sans Pro', which probably does not have the glyph for U+2A75. - the Font supplied by the website (presumably it does have the glyph) is list as a font, but I can't find a way to have it display the element.

I have tried to change the font family for the selected element in the Rules pane, but that does not work.

I have tried a variety of other changes in about:config but nothing seems to work.

I have two thoughts - the Font family for some Unicode ranges may be set for security reasons, and so U+2A75 is forced to some other Font - the fallback mechanism is not working to select a font when the glyph is not in the first family.

Hi! I do not want more cookies than "necessary". So I reject, make settings etc. And I clean them automatically when closing Firefox, just in case. On some sites that I visit very often, this turns out very tedious and timeconsuming. How to allow only necessary cookies and not the rest? With Privacy & Security, Cookies and Site Data, Manage Exceptions, I can allow or block cookies from specific sites. What do I allow when I choose Allow? Only the ticked ones or all marketing and other stuff even when these are not preticked as default? Or will the choices made during this session be saved? In the case of my bank and a couple of others, I would like to save my choices to be able to enter it a little faster. But cleaning at closing Firefox also deletes that, I suppose? How to save my choices without saving all cookies?

Is there any way to see what kind of cookies have been saved? I can see the number of cookies for each site under Manage Data, but how to see the type of cookie?

My script keeps giving me wrong answer. For exemple, a stackoverflow.com url instead of the youtube.com one even if i reload the page.

I have only one `xxxxxx.default-esr` profile.

Screenshot examples: the "google test" is a brand new visited url, and the others were refreshed pages
