FireFox: 107.0 (64 bit) Mozilla FireFox for Linux Mint OS: Linux Mint 21 Cinnamon

Issue: On this FireFox latest version, the download window cannot be resized to smaller than (roughly) 1/4 of entire screen. (screen-shot attached.)

Attempted: Mouse left-click grab of all corners & sides to drag window smaller - failed!

Note: Download window can be resized *bigger*, showing this window has now been coded with a very large minimum size that is almost 1/4 of full screen

- this was not the case in previous versions.

Micro-annoyances add up, people switch to Chrome (sorry to use the "C" word!)

So I just updated to version 106.0.1, and I noticed something new in the far right corner of the screen, an arrow with a dropdown function listed as view all tabs. I have no need for this and tried to use the customize toolbar option to remove it. It did not work. How do I get rid of this thing? It's just kinda taking up space on the screen as I doubt I'm ever gonna use it.

Any tips here?

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, 106.1, and I'm missing the Firefox View button on my MacBook Pro 13". It is showing on my Mac Mini M1, and both are logged in and syncing properly using my Firefox account.

When I type in about:firefoxview on my MacBook Pro in the URL bar, I see the page but noticed it says "New colorways are on the way" on the right. On my Mac Mini, I see the "Independent Voices" text and an option to "Try colorways".

Bug? Some weird setting on my MacBook? Both are running macOS Monterey, 12.6.

Hi, everyone. My multirow bookmarks no longer seem to work since my latest update to 107.0 (64 bit). My computer crashed and when it came back up Firefox no longer worked. I reinstalled it and have a bit of cleanup to do, but everything works now except my faithful (up-to-now) multirow toolbar. Here's the code in my userChrome.css file.

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar */

  1. PersonalToolbar {
 /* Override max-height */
 min-height: unset !important;
 max-height: unset !important; */

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox:first-child {
   display: block

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems {
   display: flex;
   flex-wrap: wrap

}

Previously, this was in my profile folder. If I move this out of the profile folder, my browser works fine but there is no multi-row toolbar. If I put it back into the profile folder, I have a multi-row toolbar, but no contentd in the main window.

I am perplexed. Help? --elizabeth

OneDrive web (onedrive.live.com) doesn't show any files/folders. The area where the files/folders should be displayed is just empty. Now the reason I believe this might be a Firefox issue is because I don't have that problem when I use OneDrive on a Private window. OneDrive on a Private window works just fine, the issue is on the regular non-private window where I wan't my session to stay open.

I already tried clearing 'everything' including cookies, site settings and offline website data. I checked all the boxes and the issue persist.

See attached screenshot.

Thanks!

Websites browsing history does not update or delete. Opening the sidebar, right clicking on an entry and using Forget About this site or Delete Page has no effect. Menu>Settings>Privacy. Private is unchecked. I've selected Clear History Time Range Everything, all boxes checked. Settings When closed Firefox should delete all boxes checked.

Remember Browsing History and it doesn't update when I open the sidebar. Last Visited is the only selection that shows any sites and it doesn't update as I browse new sites. By Date and Site, Most Visited, by site, by date do not show any sites.

I've even uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled and not sure how but it has the same history as well as last tabs opened.

I recently got a new computer, and in trying to get all my old accounts and what not synced up, I noticed that Twitter videos weren't playing for me and giving me a generic "The video could not be played", which was odd and annoying, but not the end of the world. I then went over to Twitch and got the "Your browser encountered an error while decoding the video. (Error #3000)". Meanwhile, Youtube works perfectly fine.

I tried clearing cache/cookies, tried on incognito mode in case it was an issue with one of my extensions, all to no avail - when I swapped over to Edge just to check if it was a computer issue versus a Firefox issue, both sites functioned in Edge just fine. Is there anything else I can try troubleshooting in Firefox to see what's causing this short of trying to uninstall/reinstall again?

I was directed here from Mozilla Connect. Since the update a few days ago, my Firefox browser keeps freezing permanently. It seems to happen mostly when I interact with Google Search (sometimes just loading Google will cause it) but it does happen occasionally on other sites. When it freezes this way, the only fix is to End Task and reload. It will successfully reload to the state it was in just a few seconds before freezing. I'm on Windows 10. I keep everything (OS, browsers, etc.) up to date, so I doubt that would be a factor. I wonder if there could there be an issue with a Google-based script (hence it occurring on other sites)? I don't know how I'd test for that.

Is this a known issue for the new update? Whenever I try to click Recently Closed Windows in particular, it just does nothing. It has the grey highlighted bar that shows it wants to do something, but then does nothing. About 1 out of 100 times when i click Recently Closed Tabs, it WILL open to show my recently closed tabs, but generally does the same thing as Recently Closed Windows. I know I have recently closed tabs because I restored session and it is currently showing all my old tabs I had open prior to the update. I also tested to see if my recently closed had just reset by opening a new window and closing it, but it still just does nothing. I use the Recently Closed Windows quite a bit and it's quite irritating that it appears to be broken.

"OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc." plugin will sit in the "will be installed shortly" status forever if you have HTTPS-Only mode enabled. I have been pulling my hair out for the last few days trying to figure out why I couldn't play YouTube or many other sites videos.

Turns out the site that the library is downloaded from has a bad certificate installed: https://ciscobinary.openh264.org/libopenh264-2.3.0-linux64.6.so.bz2

``` Websites prove their identity via certificates. Firefox does not trust this site because it uses a certificate that is not valid for ciscobinary.openh264.org. The certificate is only valid for the following names: a248.e.akamai.net, *.akamaihd-staging.net, *.akamaihd.net, *.akamaized-staging.net, *.akamaized.net

Hi there

I've had firefox for years and never had much issues. I've never had this issue before the most recent update where now youtube videos constantly stutter. It's just Firefox as other browsers work fine. I've updated my graphics card and did a little bit of research but none of the fixes quite did it for me. In the past couple days I've always had Firefox crash on me twice, which hasn't happened before either. So I'm not sure what's going on, but I'm prone to point fingers at an update. I don't install extensions or themes, so the only extension I have really is uBlock Origin but that's been there forever. I've restarted my computer as well. It is not my resources, they are more than fine my RAM and CPU and Graphics Card. Task manager shows nothing is even above 50% (CPU, GPU, Memory) when playing the video. I've also tried creating a new profile and opening up a new profile. Same issue.

Can anyone suggest any fixes or is this a firefox update bug?

EDIT: This appears to be for all videos I am playing on Firefox. It also does not matter if I set it to the lowest quality, even 144p, it will still stutter nonstop.

Hi, I've had Firefox 64 bit running on Windows for a while and recently was given a newer machine where I installed a newer version of the OS. I put the old HDD's as slaves in this new machine. So the old FF is in the slave machine.

I have also installed new Firefox on this new Win10 LTSC, but when I go looking in my now slave HDD I can see FF, but cannot see any bookmarks. Additionally, when I run the FF executable in the old HDD it still runs the new FF, without the old bookmarks.

So how can I extract the old bookmarks on the older FF? Without withdrawing the now slave HDD and making it a master again? As it's now missing most of the OS files too.

Thank you!
