Probleme with 'places.sqlite' -> 'moz_places' Can't retrieve the "real" $LAST_VISITED_URL ?

the last url in moz_places in places.sqlite are not the same as in my history tab I posted here Here is my `last-url.sh` #!/bin/bash rm -rf /tmp/db.sqlite … (funda kabanzi)

the last url in moz_places in places.sqlite are not the same as in my history tab I posted here

Here is my `last-url.sh`

   #!/bin/bash
   
   rm  -rf /tmp/db.sqlite 
   cp ~/.mozilla/firefox/*.default-esr/places.sqlite /tmp/db.sqlite ;
   LAST_URL=`sqlite3 /tmp/db.sqlite "select url from moz_places order by last_visit_date desc limit 1;"`;
   echo $LAST_URL


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

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?

All other search plugins work fine. Any suggestions?

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.

When you add a new bookmark to a folder it's added at the end of the existing list.

Is there a way to make Firefox add it at the top of the list, instead?

I found an old answer, but, sadly, the extension granting my wish is no longer.

Also, I already know about sorting, but it's not what I need, because I'm doing a lot of manual bookmarks reordering and sorting will nullify it.

Thank you :)

I just updated Firefox. That's supposed to improve things, right?

Now the address bar is gray most of the time. It looks normal when I'm entering a search, or editing a URL, the rest of the time, it's just ugly now. I don't like things to be changed arbitrarily like that. What is the rationale for changing the way that looks? How can I change it back? Please give me a setting, or about:config preference, and please don't get direct file editing involved, okay?

Why doesn't tiling the windows work as well as it used to? Yesterday, I could hit super+left, or super+right, from a maximized window, and it'd tile to the left or right side of the screen perfectly, the first time, every time, no problems. Now it has an intermediate stage where there's a gap all the way around the window. It seems to improve by clicking on a different window, then back into the Firefox window, but that intermediate step just shouldn't happen! What's a fix for this?

I also hit the button at the bottom to include optional troubleshooting information, but it said instead, "We can't automatically get your browser's troubleshooting data, please try these manual steps." No, I'm not doing that, get that thing working right, too!

I accidentally hid the menu bar and toolbars (with an accidental keyboard shortcut, I think), and when I re-enabled them, now the tab bar is above the location bar instead of right above the content windows. How do I move it back? I can't find the "browser.tabs.onTop" setting in about:config, or any check box in the View menu, settings, etc.

A few days ago Ubuntu (22.04 LTS) showed me a message saying I can upgrade my OS (or something along those lines). I click on agree (any button that would let me proceed) and the upgrade took place (without restarting). Along with the upgrade Firefox was also updated to its latest version at the time (119.0). Since then, videos on Twitter play but without sound. On some other websites also none of the videos play. On YouTube, Firefox shows me a message saying "To play video, you may need to install the required video codecs" but the videos play fine; I haven't tried other websites but I assume all would have some issues. Google Chrome however doesn't have this issue and all videos play without any issues.

Note that I have not restarted my computer since the upgrade. I doubt this could be an issue but please let me know if you think this could be the issue.

I did the followings and restarted Firefox but none have worked so far for Twitter and some other random websites that I come across, but they resolved the issue for YouTube and now YouTube videos play, although I still get that codec message at the top of the tab:

sudo apt-get install ffmpeg sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras sudo apt install libavcodec-extra

Someone told me this is because the default Firefox on Ubuntu 22 comes as a snap package and I should install the APT package manually instead so that it works. I prefer not to do this because I have lots of tabs open and have manually changed lots of the settings (including in about:config) that I want to preserve. I would also like to preserve the history of visited websites and keep the current cookies (don't really want to keep entering username/password on the same websites again). So the best way for me is to fix the issue for the default Firefox on Ubuntu 22.

Could you help me figure out what I should do to fix this issue?

The integrated webcam (IMC Networks Integrated Camera, according to lsusb) on my linux laptop does not work in firefox (v124). It works in desktop apps (eg webcamoid), and chromium. I've checked the permissions (about:preferences#privacy), and that is not the problem. about:support does not list the device in the input at all. I've tried using LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib64/libv4l/libv4l1compat.so, but that has not helped. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I have followed the troubleshooting suggestions with no avail. I am currently in troubleshooting mode with all add-ons disabled. The problem persists. The only way to handle the problem is to depress the scroll wheel on the mouse and start scrolling. However, the problem returns with the next page. The problem shows up on Windows 10 as well as Debian bullseye.

I have used Firefox and Firefox-esr for years on the same platforms. This problem started about six months ago with no resolution. So what has changed? On Win 10 Firefox keeps getting updates whereas Firefox-esr never gets updates. The problem persists on both platforms. More than one mouse has been used with the same results. I have removed Firefox and Firefox-esr and re loaded them, no joy here either.

Hello, this is a problem I've been dealing with for nearly 2 months now. Currently using Linux Mint Cinnamon

The browser won't connect to any websites or even try to load them, anytime I search for something it immediately goes to the error page. I've been struggling with internet on my PC for months and all was fixed when I hooked up ethernet, except for Firefox.

I've gone into about:config countless times. I've restarted it twice, I've tried installing the flatpak version and it's exactly the same result. I've deleted it and reinstalled, nothing. I've unchecked everything I've changed in about:config, once again nothing.

I can't update it as for some reason it says it's disabled by system administrator, which I don't remember enabling. I checked the firewall and it's perfectly fine. No infections were found when I scanned as well.

It's starting to become frustrating and I can't even do anything on my PC because it's acting up. Any and all help is more than appreciated and welcome. Thank you.

The title describes the problem I'm facing. I don't really use other sites that have videos other than Youtube. But I notice that the videos freeze quite often and audio just continues to play. The videos then unfreeze and skip multiple frames. I've noticed clearing browser cache seems to help but it doesn't help for longer than a 2 min video at best. At worst, it doesn't affect it at all.

The Debian Firefox packages available are only 115.6. Thought it would be nice to have the latest. Grabbed all the dependencies according to the Mozilla web site.

Installed Firefox 121.0 as root and placed folder into /opt, as instructed. Went through all the settings and imported my bookmarks.

Now there is a 121.0.1 upgrade available but my browser won't automagically install the upgrade. Says click here to download. So I do. I get the entire tar.bz2 bundle, which creates a full directory structure, as if I was starting over.

Can I just move a few files from that into the existing /opt/firefox directory to get the upgrade? If so, which ones?

Or, can I move few files from the existing directory into the new version, and replace the whole lot? If so, which ones?

Thanks in advance.

Hello there. I'm used to pressing Super(Win key) + Grave(`) to type "`" because the Grave key itself is a global shortcut for opening the terminal window. It works as expected in the other applications, but not in Firefox input fields. If the site is capturing the key presses, it will handle the super + key as usual. For example, GitHub will surround the selected word with ` symbols on grave key press. This problem is not limited to super + grave, but any other letter. For example, Super + q is expected to produce the letter "q", but in Firefox it produces nothing.

I'm trying to identify why the Super + key behavior in Firefox is different from other systems and if I should open a bug or not. Maybe this is the same bug as https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1626609. Thunderbird has the same problem.

Firefox: 123.0.1
