Hello! Using Firefox Developer Edition. Trying to get the command line prompt so I can type Javascript for a class. When in ctrl + shift + K Developer Tools: Web Console command line interface prompt (>> ) not showing (where I can type and test js code.)

I have

  1. set the ' devtools.chrome.enabled preference to true in about:config, ' as suggested in docs (but it still has no >> to type on).
  2. Also enabled 'enable browser chrome and add on debugging' in developer... settings)

How can I type in the Firefox console to test Javascript commands? Thanks!

I'm working on a website for a client and all of a sudden I can't load any single page on that site only. I was just logged into to the dashboard and making changes. Now I can't even load a page.

The error is a cgi-sys/suspendedpage.cgi for any page I attempt to load. This is also happening on chrome on the same desktop computer.

I can load and login to the dashboard on both my phone and my laptop on the same wireless network without issue. I tried everything I know how. Cleared the cache and history, flushed the dns, reinstalled firefox, etc and this error will simply not go away.

At one point it was saying the security certificate was expired (it's not) and tried to add an exception but that didn't work either. Back to the cgi-sys/suspendedpage.cgi

I'm out of ideas and totally frustrated. Please help!!! lol

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

I am migrating my wordpress based website to a new computer with a LEMP stack on Ubunto 20.04. I wish to access and test the website using the firefox browser offline. I have modified my local dns (/etc/hosts) file to include my site's url but firefox can't find it. Firefox manages to find the nginx greeting and it finds phpmyadmin which is used to manage my database, but it can't locate the wordpress web pages.

One might think I had a problem with my nginx server blocks, but that's not the case because google chrome finds the web pages with no problem.

FIrefox appears to reach out to the internet dns by default and ignore the localhost dns settings. So how do I change Firefox's default settings so that it can access websites on the same computer like Google Chrome does?

This is basically a copy of what I put in the Ubuntu forum. The problem is the same, no matter where I post it.

Originally I was using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS.

I thought it would be good to update to GG (20.10) though I did briefly try FF (20.04).

As the install was done on an existing 18.04 version things remained the same for programs, book marks, etc.

Ok, now the crunch: I USE Firefox ""A LOT"". When it loads, there are...... 8 x 6 windows of FireFox and each of those have anywhere from one to ""THIRTY"" tabs loading.

Believe me: ""It worked!!""

I could use it, also run other tasks as well - though a VM was pushing it with the RAM. But the entire machine worked.

Now, I am lucky if FireFox loads at all. Let alone let me browse.

When it loads some of the window's tops are flashing. A screen shot does not really show this. (I tried)

All that has changed is the O/S from 18.04 and Firefox from (what ever it was) to 83.0

I don't want this to be a finger pointing exercise between Mozilla and Ubuntu. I would prefer it is helpful to all.

What have I tried? I've tried starting FireFox with all addons disabled. Still happens.

I am going to try to remember to (next time) launch FireFox from a Terminal and pipe the output to a file to look for things.

The machine I am using has shown it is well up to being able to have this running. I have had it working for a few years like this.

This post is (for now) to establish there is a problem. I will post more information when I get it, rather than waiting to get it then post, as I feel there are a lot of people who have very similar problems and I want it known: ""You are not alone!""


Now a bit of extra stuff.

Other things which are weird: When I am watching stuff - youtube for example - the playback is/WAS jerky. I hadn't touched anything in the settings.

After digging around, I discovered that I had to turn ""OFF"" the hardware acceleration for the graphics. Question: How did it get turned on? (Semi rhetorical)

I have a lot of local pages I open with passwords. When I load them the CPU load goes through the roof and nearly invariably the program just exits. No crash report.

Which is a good 50% of how it happens. The other 50% is the machine just locks up and I have to power it down.

I really admire the Firefox browser for its many innovative and adaptive functions and applications that one can customize to their needs without sacrificing security and privacy. The one that I find extremely helpful the most is Dark Reader. As an individual who faces neurophysiological challenges from a traumatic brain injury from many years ago, Dark Reader has enabled me to enjoy working and reading on the internet without having to limit myself or wear super-dark lenses due to sensitivity. The app has worked for most other sites except this support site on the Firefox browser. Because I have to use Chrome for my job, I have tested your support page there with the same app and it seems to work there. Is there something that I am missing?

I would like to check which cookies are set and what content they have stored. Therefore, it is not enough for me to see which provider has stored cookies, by looking at "Settings" -> "Privacy". As far as I know these are stored in the file cookies.sqlite. Is there a way to look directly into this file? Firefox should automatically delete all cookies on exit. Nevertheless this file is 1.5 MB in size. Or is there another way to check the cookies? Thanks in advance. Matthias

Looks like Firefox uses Google to decide which sites to block when using FF. I know how to turn it off and get around the block, but FF seems to be following the thinking of now allowing conservative Christian views on their browser by using Google. This may backfire and is not an open use of the internet as FF claims. The site being blocked is https://www.toddstarnes.com/.

You may not agree with him, but that doesn't mean blocking the site.

In on a handful of websites and a primary issue on a specific site. The Lockwise auto-fill drop down menu will attempt to display a list of usernames it assumes are associated with that site. I have asked Firefox to never-save the login information for this site in hopes that this auto fill drop down menu will stop**. It has not, and the issue being it displays a list of usernames for locations I don't want publicly known. I have already shut off the auto fill login function in Firefox too.

The end point is this. I want help to find a way to stop the drop-down menu from showing when I select the Username box on a log-in page or tell Lockwise to stop associating the unwanted usernames from that website

    • Firefox did respect my request to not save that website's login information.

Hello As others have said recently, Firefox has become unusually greedy in RAM!

I love Firefox and it's been my favorite browser for years and years. But there it became unmanageable for me!

I'm absolutely not going to spend money to add more RAM to my PC tower, which is only three years old, and otherwise performs perfectly well for my use with all my other apps. There is 8 GB of RAM in my PC, a fast model of RAM, very fast, and expensive. You have to stop, guys, and face the truth! There is a real problem and there is no point in denying it, and saying that it takes more than 8 GB on a PC at the end of 2020.

The CONCRETE result is that we are all going to change the browser we use, it's super sad, and it is happening NOW. I don't want to change, but I have no choice. It's kind of heartbreaking for me, believe me.

I have previously not had this issue, have had no problem viewing videos on this particular website. Recently I've had a raft of of issues (since the latest Firefox upgrade??). In this instance, the website is https://www.sbs.com.au/ondemand/ I am signed in as a member. Whenever I try to play a movie or TV show, I get this message:

Video Playback Error Sorry, we’ve encountered an error playing this video. If you have an ad blocker turned on, try turning it off or whitelisting our website before trying again. This may prevent you from loading videos.

I'm PC illiterate so I have no idea how to turn off an ad blocker (as well as Firefox being my browser, I have Quick Heal Anti-Tracker installed). Can someone please provide some help with REALLY BASIC instructions (ie. as if you're talking to an alien who has never used a computer before!). TIA

I have emptied cache, deleted browsing history etc, makes no difference. I can access and view SBS and YT on another browser, just not on Firefox.
