Hi all,

My Firefox version is 102.0.1.

I upgraded my desktop from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to 22.04 LTS.

I removed Firefox from snapd and installed as a deb package.

I noticed these events happening on my system:

1. No voices on getVoices():

  https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/SpeechSynthesis/getVoices


2. On my system,

$ spd-say -O OUTPUT MODULES espeak-ng-mbrola espeak-ng

$ spd-say -L NAME LANGUAGE VARIANT

spd-say -L outputs an empty table, even though spd-say "Hello world" works.

The second module espeak-ng has voices installed. Running spd-say -o espeak-ng -L produces a long table.

Iam not sure if this is a Firefox issue or an Ubuntu issue.

Best Regards, Configentia

I am running a fresh instaled Ubuntu 2022.04, so this is the first Firefox-from-snap.

I am a Jupyter user, and when launch the Jupyter-lab (which try read a file in ~/.local/... directory) I get the deny; I can launch it when connect to Jupyter server, which is an annoying behaviour.

I browse for help, so I change the "security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy" to false, but didn't help

I verify that Firefox let me navigate my personal folder, but deny access to hidden folders (name starting with dot). I test this behaviour by create a new directory in my personal folder (navigable) and then change the name by adding the initial dot (access denyed).

I guess this is an effect of security policies of Firefox, but how can I change this policy in a safe way?

Home built. PC Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS

Since we have update our OS from Ubuntu 20.04 LTS to Ubuntu 22.04 LTS (a few days ago) Firefox has only shown a Blank screen at first start up, only the very top line is visible showing "Activities" then "Firefox Web Browser". Nothing will work, the only thing that does is Quit.

Restarting Firefox the second time seems to work Okay.

Please can you advise me?

Brand new installation of Ubuntu Focal (on an ARM Chromebook, using Crouton). Installed Firefox (104), runs fine but as soon as I sign into my Firefox account it immediately crashes. Continues to crash if I start in safe-mode, so I don't think the problem is an extension. After some online research and some trial and error I seem to have determined that I can sign into my Firefox account as long as password sync is disabled. But as soon as I enable password sync, Firefox immediately crashes.

Error message in terminal is always about GPU, which maybe isn't properly set up or maybe Firefox has a problem with it, but if I use the software renderer it doesn't cause a problem (MOZ_ENABLE_WAYLAND=0 firefox). Hard to imagine that this has anything to do with crashing when syncing passwords?

Hello,

I've spent several hours today trying to fix FireFox slow start up on my system. After start up (about 2 full minutes), everything works normally. The hardware is an ASUS A88xm-A MB, A10-6800K processor, 16G DDR3, runs OS and programs off an SSD. I worked through all the slow startup suggestions, ran memtest (0 Errors, 1 Pass), disabled all add ons, (even the OpenH264 video codec (I use the onboard HDMI, no graphics card)), turned off hardware acceleration, etc. When starting in troubleshoot mode, less than 30 seconds, (acceptable), but I really don't know where to begin with the "More Troubleshooting Information" when I look at the table generated by it. There have been no other problems to date with the system, and the long start-up time began with 20.04 Ubuntu (about a minute), then got worse when I upgraded to 22.04 to try to solve THAT problem. Currently running FF 104.0, and the update page says wait for a distro update if that is how it was installed. I believe 104.0 is the latest Linux 64b version though. All updates to the system are done as soon as I'm notified of them. there have been none since the upgrade a few days ago.

Any suggestions? Gotta get some sleep now... TIA, Dave

Greetings:

First experienced: Friday, Sept 2, when using burpsuite/foxyproxy during a hackerone CTF.

When using other Vbox instances on the same computer I have the same issue. This issue is usually easy to duplicate when using dev-tools or by simply doing an image search and moving the mouse across the images.

Host: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS 5.15.0-47-generic #51-Ubuntu SMP Two different VGA controllers are present: Intel CometLake-S GT2 AMD/ATI Ellesmere Radeon RX

VirtualBox: 6.1.34_Ubuntu r150636 (Qt5.15.3) VirtualBox VGA: VMware SVGA II Adapter

Guest: Kali 2022.3 rolling 5.18.0-kali5-amd64 #1 SMP PREEMPT_DYNAMIC Debian 5.18.5-1kali6

Crashes have seem to involve input from the mouse and scroll function within the browser. Once, let us call it a glitch, the crash can either take place while continually moving the mouse around the browser's page or immediately outside the page with the mouse. The "glitch" is a coloration, usually pink or lime-green with characters printed to screen and then disappears. I have been unable to predict when the glitch will happen, thus no screenshot to help.

Steps I have taken:

Googled on the problem which led me to learn about the Firefox about:crashes function.

Viewed about:crashes -- seems to be a Renderer issue linked to llvmpipe or Mesa?

Checked basic system logs for host and guest for anything evident: syslog, kern, Xorg, messages, dmesg, daemon, journalctl.

Used Firefox troubleshooting and extended troubleshooting.

Installed Firefox 104 with same issue.

Reinstalled VirtualBox.

Search on Firefox Renderer issue [from crash report]

     I turned off performance settings, still have same crash issue.

Last Report ID that did not fail to upload: bp-740acc47-0ed4-44a8-851c-ff21b0220905


Ultimately, I am unsure if this is a Firefox, VirtualBox, or Kali Linux issue, but Firefox is the one that this issue is having a severe impact on. My head is spinning at this moment due to all the logs and information I have digested over the weekend.

I appreciate any efforts in helping me decipher what is going on!

Respectfully,

Steve

Since the upgrade to Firefox 104.0.2, the only option when printing is to select "Save to PDF". All other apps can printer to any of my printers. I have to save as a pdf then print the document using the PDF viewer. I have HP4100 & HP9025 printers on my network, that all other apps can see and print to. I've refreshed Firefox & re-installed Firefox but the problem still persists. The System's printer dialog shows that both printers are available and changing default, or reinstalling the printers makes no difference. OS is Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS.

Screenshots show the printer window in Firefox, and the Printer Settings from the OS Settings window.

I use Firefox to download, copy, and store WikiSpecies pictures.

Currently, my .../Documents/WikiSpecies/Animalia_Plantae_8 directory holds what it says are 90,876 items, totalling 11.5 GB. I have plenty of unused space in that directory (over 91 GB), so space is not an issue.

Lately, when I try to install a new picture, I keep getting a warning that the picture is already stored. This MAY be because I am running out of new pictures, but I can't tell.

Is there any capacity limit to a WikiSpecies directory?

I have recently updated to Xubuntu 22 and in the process my firefox was migrated to the snap version. Now firefox is using its own mouse pointer style (smaller pointer, "hand with cuff pointing left" instead of "hand pointing up" over links). I can edit the system style of my mouse pointer, but that does not change the mouse pointer while in Firefox. This seems the same problem like these two questions: - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1380997 - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1369875

How do I make Firefox use the system settings for the mouse pointer? Or at least how do I change the mouse pointer style/settings for Firefox snap at all?

For reference my Firefox Version is 104.0.2 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap for Ubuntu. My desktop environment is xfce 4.16.

Hello, I've upgraded my Ubuntu distribution from Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 yesterday. This forced me to update my Firefox version, I am now running the 104.0.2. I now have the following issue: on some websites, the page loads normally but as soon as it's loaded, the page becomes entirely blank. This doesn't seem to be a website issue, as it actually appears normal for a very short instant before it disappears. A website for which this happens is: https://www.lalibre.be/ (I only encountered the issue on another website but it's from the same editor). I tried in a private window and it works normally! I tried in the normal window after deactivating all the addons, it still doesn't work. I tried with or without the Firefox account logged in, it doesn't work. Until now, it's only these 2 websites from the same editor, but as I said, they worked fine yesterday, they work fine on other browsers and they work fine in Firefox private mode. Any idea where this might come from?

Hello, This issue might or might not be related to [other issue] I have since I updated Ubuntu 20.04 to 22.04 and therefore updated my Firefox to 104. I can't login anymore on Letterboxd since the update. It's not a problem of username or password. When I click "Sign in", nothing happens except a page refresh, but I'm still not logged in. Other strange behaviour on that site since the update: most of the images don't appear. For example on this page : https://letterboxd.com/films/# all the movie covers are just blank.

The website does work properly when using Firefox in private mode though (both login and images work fine), so this makes me think it's related to my other issue mentioned above.

OS: Ubuntu 22.04 Firefox 104.0.2

EDIT after posting this question: I just found out that I can't login on Google either. I enter my username, password, then it asks me to validate on another apparel that it's really me, which I do, and nothing happens so I can't login. It works normally in private mode.
