Hi. I was suddenly having unexpected problems to log in in a site (https://www.lanacion.com.ar/). So I updated FF but the problem persists. Then, I uninstalled FF, downloaded it again from the repository and installed again, but the problem persists. Then, I downloaded directly rom the Mozilla site, expand it in the desktop and double click the program icon. The program opened and I was able to log into the site I was trying to. Interesting enough, the browser opens a lot faster than when installed. My question is: everywhere on the web the response is "you have to install the program" or "the program is already installed in your distro", which is true in my case, but one day stopped to work properly. BUT I'm not installing it, and it works apparently well... ¿how can it be? Thanks in advance for your reply. -Enrique.

This issue has arisen on Firefox for Linux Mint (my current version is 123.0 (64bit)). I like Firefox, and I like its bookmarks toolbar, and have used it for many years, but there seems to be a new bug introduced today:- The bookmarks toolbar is present and correct when I start Firefox, but now it disappears as soon as I select any bookmark, or if I enter any web address or if I open a new tab. The [View >Toolbars > Bookmarks Toolbar > Alway Show] option is already selected, but the toolbar is no longer visible. If I click on it again, the bookmarks toolbar reappears (or I can restart Firefox, and this will also restore the toolbar). But the toolbar now disappears as soon as I use the browser in any way, and so is currently not really of practical use, as it needs constant restoring. Hope you can help resolve this. Many thanks in advance

Hi! After a routine update today to Mozilla Firefox 127.0 for Linux Mint, Firefox is asking for my master password before letting me continue. Sync does not appear to be enabled.

I'd really rather it didn't do this, because my password manager is now always open and accessible. Previously, the master password request was only triggered when I came on a site that needed a password.

Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks for any pointers!

Hello,

I am on a LinuxMint machine (21.2 - Cinnamon), using Firefox for LinuxMint 001-1.0 - 127.0(?)

When trying to access https://onlineradiobox.com/us/draculascastle/, Firefox reports a playback error. Chromium is opening it with no problems.

Firefox is also opening other stations on the onlineradiobox, without a problem. Tried all kinds of setting changes to no avail.

Can you please HELP?

Thank you for your time.

Title. Whenever I open Firefox, the window will appear shortly after, but it will take around a minute for websites to load. This applies to both tabs from older sessions and opening new tabs. It doesn't matter whether I've just booted up, or if I've been running for half an hour. I've tried disabling all extensions, but that hasn't fixed anything. I am running Linux Mint 21.1 Cinnamon on my Gaming Laptop. Specs shouldn't be an issue. ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED!

Looking for a fix on a right-click issue that I keep having...

When using Linux Mint (Cinnamon), the right-click context menu occasionally becomes misaligned with the cursor position. Attached image shows a right click on the text box in the right browser window triggering a popup in the left browser window.

This most frequently happens when:

  • Multiple windows are open AND
  • The window being right-clicked on is "snapped" into place (by dragging to the side of the screen)

Error seems to occur most frequently on windows snapped to the right-hand-side of the screen.

Context menu placement is offset by an arbitrary amount determined at time of window-snapping. E.g., moving the cursor down 1 inch in the example image below will move the menu down 1 inch as well. Un-snapping the window, and re-snapping can adjust menu-cursor-offset distance.

Since the latest update, when I right-click on a bookmark or an item in the history list (from the menu or the bookmarks toolbar), I still get the menu that has items like "Open in new tab" or "Edit Bookmark".

However, the focus for the mouse stays on the previous menu, so that I can't click on anything in the "right-click menu", instead it is interpreted as a click in some random item in the previous menu.

Going into troubleshoot mode didn't help, so I don't think it's my configuration causing this.

I'm using Firefox 104 on LInux Mint 19. In settings I have downloads set to the Download folder and "always ask" is checked. However, when downloading a file the dialog opens to some random folder that ff creates under /run/user/1000/doc, every time, and every time I have to navigate to where I actually want to put the file otherwise I'd have to go searching deep into the file system to find it. In earlier versions (I still have a copy of ff 71 installed too) The download dialog opens to the download folder and if I save the file elsewhere the next download opens to the folder where saved the last file. This is the behavior that I want in ff 104. How can I set that up?

I am mainly using firefox (108 at this time) in Linux Mint and I have sync setup with some others systems (even older linux distribs with icewease and windows). I have a lot of trouble with certain sites when my profile '~/.mozilla/firefox' is loaded and my sync account is connected or not. (seems to be related to javascript or similar - some wait circles never stop and nothing is displayed) I assume I have something corrupted in the profile. If move .mozilla/firefox profile and starts from scratch those websites are working good.

But I have a lot of bookmarks and does not want to restart from scratch. I already did that one year ago and it seems it when I restore sync when the problems arise.

Any idea?

Hi Support,

Since my Linux Mint System updated Firefox to 103.0.2 certain websites will not play videos seemingly because Firefox or Adblocker is stopping the website from getting/using cookies for adverts.

Websites like YouTube, https://www.gbnews.uk/watchlive and channle4.com will not play or hang at times. The Youtube videos in question are ones that have adverts switched on as videos with no adverts run fine.

I am using Microsoft Edge as well and it play all the videos with no problems.

I am running the Linux Mint 20.3

Thanks Raymond

Version 126.0 (64 bit) Mozilla Firefox for Linux Mint mint-001 - 1.0

I use a wireless keyboard and mouse via a USB connector. History - I have had to reboot to clear the mouse interface error when it occurs for many months. I've had a open issue in the linux mint forums as I thought it may be a driver issue. Things worked tolerable until 5-29-2024 as my wireless mouse has been deactivated. I opened a second window(tab) in a new window and my wireless mouse permanently no longer works. It was quite startling. The wireless keyboard is fine. A wired USB mouse works. My HP laptop mousepad works. However, once the error occurs mouse clicks are no longer responded to and the active area remains the partial window where the mouse was last active. Currently the mouse cursor does not respond to movement inputs from the wireless mouse, so seriously worse.

Have the mouse settings or driver have been tampered with?
