I'm using Firefox browser v106 on Linux (Debian distribution on amd64).

My settings use "Firefox Home" (Web Search and Shortcuts) as Homepage. When I try to open a new page or tab, I have an error : "Oops, something went wrong loading this content. Refresh page to try again".

Despite my research, impossible to fix this issue. In Web Developer Tools / Console, I have the log : "TypeError : sectionOrder is undefined", in file resource://activity-stream/data/content/activity-stream.bundle.js

Have you any clue to fix this issue without resetting my Firefox profile ?

Ever since i can't seem to find and access those settings. Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance. I'm on linux, Manjaro.

Hi there!

I'm attempting to migrate my Firefox (106.0.3) profile from the Linux Mint V20.3 on one SSD to a new installation of Linux Mint V21 on a separate SSD. I'm using the information supplied on this page:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/back-and-restore-information-firefox-profiles

Step 4, under Backing up your profile says: Right-click on your profile folder (e.g. xxxxxxxx.default), and select Copy.

This folder, qspfoqtl.default, contains 1 file, named times.json, the contents of which are:

{ "created": 1618792039414, "firstUse": null }

Clearly, not my Firefox profile.

There is, however, a folder named nnob5aww.default-release that contains a bunch of directories and files (505.4MB) with names like bookmarkbackups, browser-extension-data... storage, weave.

Is this documentation incorrect as of this release of Firefox? And, should I be using the nnob5aww.default-release folder as the profile? I'm a little confused. (Most often, I'm a lot confused.) Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

- Ralph

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...

Hello. I use developer's version of ff for a few weeks (currently on 107.0b2). I recently decided to switch back to stable version 106. However, when I run it it says

``` Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox. ```

So, how do I move from developer's version back to stable without losing anything?

(OS: debian 11, if it matters)

Subject line says it mostly. Normally, when you click a bookmark button it replaces the content in current window by default. I am aware I can hold CTRL or SHIFT down to launch a new tab or window respectively. I would however like to be able for certain bookmarks to set the default launch behavior, similar to setting the HTML target=_blank tag on a link. I need certain bookmarks to always launch into new windows (and even nicer would be to launch into a conveniently resized window to left or right of my current window). The idea is that there are frequently times when the content of both windows is needed at same time.

Dropdown lists are not displaying their contents when selected on certain websites, including eBay.

I have tried using Troubleshoot Mode and the dropdowns are still not displaying.

Here's an example where I am seeing this behaviour: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255536264049?var=555488018135

When I select the Resistance Level dropdown, nothing happens. It's the same for any listing that has a dropdown.

This issue occurs in both RPM and Flatpak instances of Firefox.

I have tried the same page in Chromium browser on the same computer and the dropdown functions correctly in that browser.

I have also noted the same behaviour on other websites, such as train booking sites, but I don't have any other examples to share at the moment. It isn't an isolated eBay issue anyway.

Any ideas? Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

I am using a Dell Inspiron 3847 with the standard keyboard which came the system years ago

Recently, when viewing a large online page, when I try to scroll down, the scroll doesn't start until about two seconds after I press my scroll key (which is the lower-middle key of the 4 keys between my right-hand "Ctrl" key and the "0" of the 10-key keyboard at the far right of the keyboard).

This delay started happening a few weeks ago. I do not know whether something I did caused it.

How can I scroll my view starting immediately, rather than having to wait two seconds for it to start?

Any advice returned by Google seems to be obsolete or only worked perhaps in older versions of Firefox. The main idea of using userChrome.css to override the default styles for Reader View does not seem to work. My userChrome.css file does work on other items though (like removing the sidebar width restriction).

Whatever advice I find via Google perhaps cites outdated CSS selectors, but current selectors do not seem to be documented anywhere by Mozilla. Moreover, I cannot find any file on my local drive named aboutReader.css when using find or grep commands in bash, those this file name is alluded to when viewing a page in Reader View and then in turn viewing source on that transformed page.

Moreover, addons that would allow me to change the colors seem to be restricted in Reader View.

It does seem like something has changed in recent Firefox updates but I can't remember when I last saw, for instance, links in dark mode Reader View that were still pink (whereas now they are blue, and impossibly dark to see, especially when you are disabling as much blue light as possible through your operating system). I need a higher contrast color for links in dark mode Reader View so I can actually see them.

I can alternatively use the Tranquility Reader addon and have custom colors, but A) that addon does not work with the Automatic Reader View addon, whereby I can always have various sites appear in some sort of "reader view" whether the native one or Tranquility Reader, and B) hitting refresh when in Reader View will defeat some soft paywalls but this does not work with, e.g., Tranquility Reader, so I still would prefer to be able to custom colors in the native Reader View feature, rather than rely on an addon.

1. Where are the current styles for Reader View even documented? 2. Is overriding them now restricted? 3. Why did the link color change from pink to blue in newer versions of Firefox (this is a terrible accessibility bug)? 4 .Where is the alluded to aboutReader.css stylesheet actually stored on my computer (it doesn't seem to be a file on the filesystem in the Firefox profiles folder, it seems more like it is embedded in the Firefox binary/executable)? 5. Will Firefox settings ever allow us to set colors specifically for Reader View (I don't mean the override settings for all web pages, particularly web pages not being rendered in Reader View ... that setting does not help in Reader View, nor would it be the desired preference for pages not in Reader View)?

Thank you.

On startup this morning, I saw the Colorways options. I tried a few, but decided to keep my Dark theme.

One of the first set of Colorways options was "no option," a circle with a slash. On the new Firefox View > Colorways page, that is no longer an option. I tried Settings > Manage Colors, to no avail.

The Firefox I'm using now has screwed up colors. I want to revert to the Firefox I had on startup. How do I do that?

I first realized an issue with downloading PDFs through the Firefox viewer - I cannot. The download button does nothing, there is no prompt, no popup, and no file downloaded. I have also tried to print to pdf, that also seems to fail.

Today I realized I also cannot attach any files to an email through Gmail in Firefox, which is now leading me to believe that the software is unable to interface with my files at all.

Things I've tried include: - Turning off popup blocker - Refreshing Firefox in the ->Help->More Troubleshooting Information Menu - Starting Firefox in safe mode - Reinstalling through snap

The only way I can currently download files is through wget, and the only way I can send attachments is by installing Google Chrome, which is kind of a last resort for me.

I am running Ubuntu 22.04, this is on Firefox 106.0, though it didn't work last update either.

Thanks for any help
