Firefox beta release: 116.0b6 (64-bit)

On sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com I am not getting the normal cookie consent pop-up option which used to automatically show on opening the sites. Other sites are still showing the cookie consent option pop-ups. This means I cannot select if I wish to accept or reject cookies on several sites that used to allow me the option.

In checking about:config, the cookiebanners.service.mode is set to 1, which I believe this the correct setting for enabling the cookies consent pop-up option.

Is there any fix for the cookie consent pop-up not working on certain sites within the EU? I am not using a VPN or pop-up blocker. Tracking protection is set to Standard, cookies and site data are always deleted on closing Firefox and "Do Not Track” signal is set to always. Deleting all installed FF extensions has no effect either.

In other browsers on the same PC, Chrome and Edge, the cookie consent option does still work as it should on the sites mentioned. In Firefox it doesn't.

This is only happening on one PC. My latop has the same FF beta build installed and is not showing this behaviour, it still automatically shows the cookie consent pop-ups when visiting sites such as BBC.com, Youtube.com and Facebook.com.

I have Firefox 107.0b5 (64-bits) Snap for Ubuntu canonical-002 - 1.0 I use Ubuntu Mainline to update to newer kernels. Never had any problem doing that. I am now on 5.19.15. But when I upgrade to kernel 6 (which is now at 6.0.5) Firefox tabs crash. Reloading doesn't help. Each new tab I open gives the same crash message. I have to restart to get Firefox going again. So I removed kernel 6 and reverted back to kernel 5.19 and have no problems any more. But question, what is the problem between kernel 6 and firefox? Does anybody else experience this problem?

I have no other problems with kernel 6 with other programs or hardware or whatever, only firefox tabs crash...

Firefox Developer Edition - Developer Console is killing my productivity. It started opening in Full screen mode about a week ago and will not exit full screen. I have to F12 and exit developer console. This is a major issue because, I work with the console not docked. Docking blocks my productivity. F11 only puts it into some very weird outline mode where all I see is a rectangular grey outline on my full screen. If I click on it, it repaints the console in full screen. There is no option to drag and expand or contract. Nothing. Nada. Please help. This is my primary browser, er -was my primary browser. I'll continue to work around it until my patience is completely exhausted. Almost there now.

Sorry about the terrible markup on the screenshot. It's hard to encircle a big gray full screen empty frame. Thank you.

Forcing Cmd/Ctrl+click to ALWAYS open the link in a background tab - even in Google Docs?

My preferences are set so that "When you open a link, image or media in a new tab, switch to it immediately" is OFF. Therefore most of the time when I Cmd+click on a link, it opens on a new tab that loads in the background. This is what I want.

However, some websites break that behavior. 2 high-profile examples:

  • In Google Docs, if a piece of text links to an URL, clicking on the text shows a small window with the URL. Cmd+click on that URL opens it in a new tab, and takes me to that tab.
  • In Facebook Messenger, if I Cmd+click on a chat, again the chat opens in a new tab and I'm taken there. Additionally, the original tab activates that chat.

Interestingly, in both these cases, I get the right behavior if I right-click on the URL or in the chat and in the contextual menu choose "Open link in new window/tab/container tab": the new tab stays in the background.

So my question is: does anyone know of a way to always make cmd+click behave just like "Open link in new tab", no matter the website?

I'm on Firefox 115b4 on macOS, but this has been like this for years at least.

I use HTML files to create images for a tile based game we play. 6 months ago I was able to create a table with collapsed borders and 0px padding, margins, and borders, then draw my image with 207 x 207 JPEG TDs in multiple TR rows, then place another GIF image over all the JPEGs with transparent edges. Doing this for a table that was 6 tiles (207px) wide and 4 tiles deep, at ctrl 0, displayed a Firefox combined image that was exactly 1242px x 828px that was completely visible on 24 inch 1920 x 1080 DELL monitor. This allowed me to right click an empty space on my Firefox screen and select Take Screenshot to click on the GIF overlay image and capture that image with all of the tiles that were behind its transparent edges.

For some reason, I have no idea why, my 207px by 207px tile images are now being displayed as 282px by 282px at ctrl 0, and the overall image is now too large to fit on the screen, so taking a screenshot of the proper sized image is no longer possible. For example, at ctrl- ctrl-, the tile images are 221 pixels square, which should be 1326 pixels wide for 6 tiles, but my 1242px wide GIF file displays at 1330 pixels wide, probably due to some kind of rounding error.

I was able to use about:config and change layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from -1.0 to 0.74 and it did solve the problem. But it does so with a lot of warning for changing that default value!

So my question is simple: how does Firefox, on Windows 10, determine its screen pixel to Image px relationship? I need to know what to look at for the proper way to get my px to pixel ratio back to 1 to 1.

This is what the working image looks like while designing the center scoreboard tile https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-23-13-36-34-2fa67f.png

and this is what the final image looks like when you take a screenshot of the image https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-23-13-36-53-beae42.png

I use Kubuntu 23.04 with Firefox from mozillateam/ppa apt repository, got update to FF 119 today (package 119.0+build1-0ubuntu0.23.04.1~mt1) and after the update Firefox stopped using system-wide installed fonts (either from /usr/share/fonts or from ~/.local/share/fonts).

So for example fc-list finds Gentium Plus (/usr/share/fonts), Iosevka and Junicode (~/.local/share/fonts) on my system: % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'gentium plus:' Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Italic.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-BoldItalic.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Bold.ttf Gentium Plus: /usr/share/fonts/truetype/gentiumplus/GentiumPlus-Regular.ttf % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'iosevka:' Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc Iosevka: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/iosevka/iosevka.ttc % fc-list -f '%{family}: %{file}\n' | rg -i 'junicode:' Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Bold.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Regular.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-Italic.otf Junicode: /home/silmeth/.local/share/fonts/junicode/otf/Junicode-BoldItalic.otf

but when I try to apply the style `font-family: Gentium Plus`, `font-family: Iosevka`, or `font-family: Junicode` to an element, Firefox doesn’t use those fonts and instead in the element inspector I see Noto Serif is being used instead.

Before the update the appropriate system fonts were being chosen for rendering by Firefox.

A required site I need to use for work has a popup dialog box that never works right in Firefox, the popup dialog shows up as a blank box or doesn't popup at all in Firefox. I must print what is supposed to be there in that dialog box. It's been like this for a couple of years now. I've tried everything imaginable and searched high and low for the fix. I have had this particular site set as an exception to popups blocking, and then I also set it to have all popups unblocked. Still doesn't work either way. I have to use the site in Brave instead, and it's the only way I can get what I need done. I used to love Firefox SO much, I used it exclusively. But it has undergone some unpleasant changes recently, such as hiding my open tabs on my iphone. Because of these issues I find myself using other browsers more and more.

I'm having an issue with a particular text field. When entering any text into said text field, my CPU will shoot to 100% usage on some cores, hang for a bit and then print the text after a few seconds. I have an Intel 13900k @ 5.5ghz.

I can't provide a link to the text box as it's a WordPress CMS on my local machine. This issue does not present itself on the competitor browser.

A few troubleshooting steps I've taken:

  • Re-install Firefox
  • New profile
  • Disable all extensions
  • PC safemode + Firefox safe mode
  • Tested dev/nightly/stable (I'm using BETA daily)
  • Disabled accel

Hopefully I'm able to have an expert look at my profiler to help determine what the issue is. I'm not knowledgeable in this area unfortunately. https://share.firefox.dev/3s60ISV

When Firefox asks if I want to download an update and I agree, soon after that but not right away it stops working - on every new page it says "We need to restart to finish updating" <- This last bit is VERY annoying. Is there a way to keep FF working in such situation? I usually have 3 FF profiles running, about 10-20 tabs each and when it suddenly does this - I can restart them all but when it is suitable for me.

The only solution I can see so far is disabling updates via group policies (which is not well documented, where do i put this policies.json on Fedora? need to google that).

Any other ways to keep updates and FF running until I decide when to restart? Thanks.

Good day.

Im having an issue with my Firefox developer Eidition (v 117.0b9 -64bit), where im not able to "paste" text on whatsapp web since 18th Aug 2023. (pasting imgs is fine though)

Tested other ways to paste using right click / Ctrl+V but it didnt work.. and if i copy something from same whatsapp and re-apply paste, also does not work (again to remind, only pasting text does not work) !

Checking though other browsers "Edge" seems to be ok and i was able to "paste" text normally. I hv yet to check on the issue on normal Firefox Browser.

Using Windows 10. Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz 1.99 GHz RAM 32.0 GB


Since other browsers did not have this issue, i thought of raising this for Firefox devs to hv a look at it. Maybe some update done recently caused this glitch. So im doing my part in sharing feedback to improve an open source software which i use.

Thank you for the amazing browser.

I have been noticing this for a few months now. Firefox works just fine after wasting ~25 seconds initially. I have also reinstalled Firefox multiple times. Right after the installation, the boot-up can be very fast (less than 1 second). However, after using Firefox for a few hours, the problem comes back.

I am not well-versed in reading Firefox profiler reports. So, please help me figure out what's actually happening in those ~25 seconds.
