I recently switched to Linux mint (cinnamon) from windows 11 and have set firefox back up but the tab bar now squishes the tabs, like chrome ,instead of scrolling, like it had on windows 11. Is this feature not available on linux? And if it is how do you set it up, because I cannot find anything about it in the settings. Many thanks!

I am currently on windows 11 for ARM (surface laptop 7) and this problem is occurring with both Firefox as well as Firefox developer edition. It's also only happening on my external monitor. I have done some searching and found posts from as long as 4 years ago. The posted solution is to disable any compatibility options but in my case none are selected. This is driving me nuts, does anyone know of a solution? This has to be firefox specific because no other program does this, including other browsers. I have included a screenshot to show what it looks like.

M3 Macbook Pro, Sonoma 14.3.1. Firefox ESR 115.12.0esr (64-bit).

Fresh FF install right after setting up OS. Opening FF from OS opens home page. If FF is not running & I click a link in another program (email, GIMP help menu link, etc.) FF opens the linked page but also opens the home page (2 tabs). If FF is running, the linked page is opened in a new tab, leaving current tab(s) in place, the expected behavior.

FF is default browser. Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed is selected. Created a vanilla test profile with no modifications to settings, made it default, and got the same result.

On my previous laptop (don't remember FF version - whatever the latest Intel ESR version was about a month ago) opening FF from the OS opened to the home page. Opening FF (not running) from a link in another program opened only the linked page and not the linked page + home page. FF already running behaved the same as now.

My OS account name is changed in the troubleshooting information.

I switched back to release from nightly because the themes support completely broke rendering of menus, buttons, etc on various (read: pretty much every single one, including this one) websites, making them difficult or impossible to use. I've tried a browser refresh to no effect.

unfortunately, it appears the feature has been rolled out to release now as well, as pictured below.

I've tried cycling through themes, setting custom colors and forcing it to never replace the website's specified colors etc, turning off acceleration... none of it works. this is an issue on my desktop, laptop, and tablet (surface pro x), basically every platform I use except mobile.

any ideas how to fix this? it's really annoying and I'd really like to not hop browsers again, I've been using firefox for a good long while now.

Hi,

When I seek in videos, for example on youtube, it almost always hangs the entire machine. The same issue happens randomly as videos run, eg after about 5-7 minutes.

I'm struggling to get more information on what is happening (eg logs) because the whole system hangs.

Here are some things I have discovered:

1. I can reproduce in a fresh profile 2. I can reproduce with the flatpak version 3. I can't reproduce in the Brave browser 4. I can't reproduce the problem on Windows, only on this Linux machine

I'm running on Linux (debian bookworm). I'm using wayland. I have an intel i915 GPU (Alder Lake).

The problem started recently (last few days), but I'm not able to nail down exactly what changed.

What I really want is any way to get more information about what is happening - logs or debug output or whatever. Then I can work out if the bug is in Firefox, or something else on my system (eg intel graphics drivers)

Thanks, Cal

When Firefox opens up the address is typed in at top left in small print. The center bar is there, open, but if you click on it, while the cursor blinks, when you type in an address nothing appears as it does with Google Chrome which we have replaced with Firefox. My wife finds the top left print too small and wants me to go back to Google Chrome where she can read what she has entered. I cannot find anything, anywhere which will allow her to do this. We use Thunderbird and have made a few donations over the years. Hope you can help.

I'm old, so having the "header" in my Private Search bar be in dark mode is very difficult. I've done searches on the subject and noted there are other people with visual challenges with the same issue.

I tried to go to Settings to change it, but it wouldn't let me change from "automatic" to "light mode". It was blocked!

I subscribed to an educational series that includes several kinds of presentation, including MP3, PDF, and video. The videos do not work. Not at all. I was directed to try a different browser, which I did: microsoft edge. The videos play using that browser.

I MUCH prefer to use Firefox -- do not like anything microsoft, but here we are, trapped in bill gates' monopoly.

I looked at "settings" but was not able to see anything there I thought would allow these videos to play in firefox. Be advised, I am NOT a computer person, so anything you might suggest, please be very literal, specific and define any acronyms -- do not assume I know anything about this stuff, because I don't -- I do not speak computer.

Again, I MUCH prefer to use firefox so I am hoping you can help me to watch these videos in firefox. The website is Goodness Lover (weird name, I know) it deals with diet, microbiome research etc.
