Wanted to export some bookmarks, and couldn't figure out why (latest Firefox) Bookmarks "Library" was missing relevant buttons/menus. (Screenshots attached.)

After testing, found they actually are there, but have have almost no contrast vs background - that is when "Manage Bookmarks" is called from a Private window. But things look fine when called from a Standard window. (No extensions; same in Safe Mode.)

Can anyone advise?

A simple workaround is to bring a standard window to the front first, but am curious if this is Firefox on all systems? Only FF Linux? Only the particular (default) settings of my Linux Mint 20.3 Cinnamon installation, and display? Not even sure a Bookmark management window is ever meant to assume the theme of the foreground window (here Private browsing's dark).

Thank you.

When watching videos on YouTube or Amazon Prime, Firefox will eventually stop recognizing keyboard and mouse input in all windows and tabs. This can happen after just a few minutes of video or after hours. It affects nearly all input: typing or clicking in webpages, the toolbar, the address bar, etc., though I can click the 'x' button to close tabs. When I close the final window, a dialogue will appear stating that Firefox is non-responsive and allowing me to kill the process. This seems unusual, because the OS's system monitor indicates there is plenty of unused and available RAM and CPU resources. Firefox behaves normally after restarting.

OS: Xubuntu 22.04 Firefox version: 120.0 (though previous versions have been affected for the last few months)

I use a VPN connection to access my workplace. This means that all my DNS queries MUST go through the company's VPN tunnel.

Firefox is deliberately blocking my work. The DNS over HTTPS "feature" does not work over this VPN connection.

In Firefox, there was previously the following setting: Preferences > General > Network Settings > Enable DNS over HTTPS

I REALLY NEED to have this setting restored right now.

I have an issue with the address bar in private windows. Normally when you click on the search bar in the new tab page, it will redirect the cursor to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar.

I found the following solution on the forum here that works for normal windows: go to the about:config page and set browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.improvesearch.handoffToAwesomebar to false.

For private windows, this fix does not work. It will still go to the address bar instead of letting you use the search bar. Is there another way for me to fix this so that it will also work in private windows?

Hi, I have a weird problem, I have 3 systems on my device: windows(10), ubuntu and Arch lately when i was configuring Firefox on fresh arch install I was annoyed that I needed to re-login to every single s...t again. So I thought "Why can I just share the same FF profile between systems" Long story short it didn't work on Arch. I was forced to compile FF from source and now it works... but when I'm logged in on Ubuntu and trying to launch FF from GNU I always see this error. it's working when i point out to profile from the command line with "-p <dir>". but even then when I go to about:profiles and click "launch in new browser" it's still pooping with this error. So Am I doing something wrong or it is just impossible to do this seamlessly? is there a better(correct?) way to achieve the same functionality?

thanks for reading, ill humbly take any advice.

EDIT: I have copied the profile's folder to a separate partition which is auto mounted tried it on Ubuntu (at this time it had been working just fine) and after using it on Arch when I was back on Ubuntu it was displaying this error

I'm having the exact same problem as what was originally mentioned in this post from 4 years ago.

The "chosen solution" was to exit firefox through the hamburger menu, which I find to be absolutely ridiculous. You mean to tell me that even though I close EVERY OTHER APPLICATION either using the "X" close button or a custom keybinding that I've set for my own personal convenience, firefox requires me to exit through a menu every time in order to make it behave the way I've told it to? No. Absolutely not. If I tell firefox that I don't want it to save my last session, that means I DON'T WANT IT TO SAVE MY LAST SESSION. If I've deselected the "open previous windows and tabs" option in the settings, then under no circumstances should it be trying to open my previous windows and tabs.

I've tried the suggestion to change the value of browser.sessionstore.max_resumed_crashes from 1 to 0. The problem persists, I assume because firefox considers being closed using the close button to be a "crash", which is interesting.

I the other suggestion further down in the thread was to set browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash from true to false, which will prevent firefox from recovering a session from a crash. This is hardly an appropriate solution. I want firefox to resume my last session if there is a legitimate (key word LEGITIMATE) crash, because my session was closed against my will due to something that went wrong. Being able to recover my last session in such a situation is nice. I do not, however, want firefox to resume my last session when I explicitly closed the last session myself, which would be the difference between a crash recovery and restoring a previous session. If no crash occurred, I don't need a crash recovery, and aside from a crash, I don't want my previous session to be restored.

Are there any solutions to this at all? Because this is one of the biggest reasons why I stopped using firefox. I want to come back to firefox because everything else that's worth using is either dog shit, or Chromium-based (i.e. also dog shit). However, I find this broken feature to be somewhat of a security issue. If a bad actor somehow gains access to my system, I don't want him to be able to open firefox and have access to my last browser session because I closed firefox using a keyboard shortcut instead of closing it through a goddamned menu.

The new selection "Copy without site tracking" may eliminate certain codes, but does not remove all invasive data (my term). Consider this common URL occurrence:

link text

The new filter does absolutely nothing to this and when I pass this kind of URL on to others, I do not want to include all that crapola. Currently I have to manually edit the link, which can really get tiresome when passing on a lot of links.

Is there a way to modify anything in Firefox to accommodate this?

Hi,

This is for https://outlook.live.com where I cannot access my full list of folders. I am using Firefox on Linux (in Fedora 34) and my scrolling feature hasn't been working for a few days now. When I search for an email in one of the inaccessible folders, the folder does appear.

There are questions about organizing the process of overseeing extensions.

It’s very strange when you see the “Recommended” extension, and at the same time you continue to see negative reviews, fresh ones. But another thing is offensive: the review submission form does not have feedback. I would like to receive a more detailed answer and user recommendations.

Let’s say a user writes that the design of the extension is not intuitive, that he lost information because of this extension and wasted a lot of time. And this is not consistent with the "Recommended" criteria. Causes dissonance.

Maybe it’s worth expanding the possibility of interactive interaction with reviews, with clients among themselves. Maybe it’s worth expanding the support base for these extensions? Link the application version to reviews to avoid misunderstandings?
