Firefox is unable to load module

I've been trying to setup a smartcard reading device, and I've gotten stuck twice on the same place.

When it comes to configuring the Security Device on Firefox, I can't access the .so file. Firefox merely shows the error "Alert: Unable to add module", but I've noticed that when I try to browse my files manually, trying to access the /usr directory returns an error (sometimes, I seem to not be able to get it consistently).

It also happens that the software I installed for the digital certificate tried to open an html with Firefox, which is located in /usr/share/, and Firefox doesn't seem to be able to load that either. It returns a "Can't open file".

Steps followed

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Settings → Privacy and Security → Security Devices → Load
  3. Insert path /usr/lib/libpkcs11-dnie.so and try to load (yes, I've checked that the file does actually exist)
  4. Receive Alert: Unable to add module error

Relevant information

   Ubuntu 22.04
   I'm on the latest snap version of Firefox: 100.0.1-1

Gmail "open message in new window" redirect fails since updating to FF 100.0.1

I have two Gmail Workspace accounts logged in to two different tabs in one FF browser window. Have used this set-up for years. However, ever since updating to FF 100.0.1, when I try to open an email thread in a new window (pops out the message into a separate window), there is a "cannot properly re-direct error" that appears.

Only way to resolve this appears to be clearing the cache for mail.google.com and signing in again to both accounts. However, this solution only appears to work for a day or two before the "redirect error in a new window" occurs again.

This error does not occur in Private Browsing mode, and Google Workspace support has confirmed it is not an issue with Gmail/ Workspace.

Any thoughts on how this can be fixed? I have disable all "enhanced tracking protection"

Thank you for your time and help,

Firefox stopped working. If you open task manager, it shows there but you can't end the process. If you try to open it again, it just shows it's open again. I've tried all the troubleshooting steps and nothing works. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but the problem is still there. I have found that I can open it if I run my laptop in safe mode with network, but it won't run in normal mode. I have a new laptop and want to move all my Firefox data there. But if it won't open, I can't move it.

I frequently have difficulty when I need to make plain-test copies of web pages. These are pages that only allow "Select All" to select parts of pages, so that important parts of the pages cannot be selected, or so that a large number of select-and-copy cycles are required to copy the information on a webpage. The Firefox extensions that I have tried like the old "right to click" do not seem to help much. With old versions of Windows, I would use print-to-file for a generic plain-text printer, but that does not provide a readable file on Win 10.

I frequently find these problems on web pages with survey questions. This web page is a very simple example where multiple cycles of select-and-copy are required: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/new/desktop/form People who have accounts on Meetup.com should see an egregious example on this page: https://www.meetup.com/account/interests/

Thanks for any help, Lloyd

Using Ancestry.com for genealogical research. The option exists to view other trees with comparable information. Works in Chrome, Vivaldi and Opera. Works in Firefox Developer. Will not work in FF 100.0.2. I've tried the usual troubleshooting - safe mode, enabling/disabling DNSPrefetch. Example URL http://trees.ancestry.com/pt/PersonMatch.aspx?tid=44861136&pid=162378642007&src=m which should display snapshots of other trees containing the same people. Only on Firefox, I am redirected to my homepage on the website. I have read of others having the same problem. Any fix suggestions? Thanks.
