There is no text in the dialog boxes in Firefox. I mainly notice it with the password and download dialog boxes, as i get those frequently. I have tried reinstalling Firefox, but that didn't help. I have tried using firefox in troubleshoot mode and get the same results. I have also deleted all Mozilla folders on my pc between installs in hope of fixing the problem, but nothing changed. The folders I deleted were in the Local, LocalLow, and Roaming folders. Other dialog boxes seem to work fine. It has been this way for about a year, and don't remember what caused it, as I didn't really notice it until I had to download something, and didn't have time to troubleshoot at the time. I would like some guidance on how to fix this issue.

Every week, for work, I need to download at least one large video file from Microsoft OneDrive and then upload it to YouTube. (These are MP4s in the range of 200 - 800 MB.) For the last couple of months, maybe longer, the download keeps failing in Firefox. When I switch to Chrome, the same MP4 downloads with no problem.

Any idea what might be going on? Usually the file starts downloading just fine; I see the bar gradually filling up in the notification area, but then it suddenly stops and says "Failed." If I retry, the same thing just happens again.

I'm not using any kind of download manager (that I'm aware of), just relying on Firefox's default download behavior when I click on the "Download" link on the OneDrive web page (sample URL: https://olucdenver-my.sharepoint.com/personal/YADA_YADA/_layouts/15/onedrive.aspx?id=LONG_QUERY_STRING_HERE).

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Hello,

I am having problems downloading documents with Firefox. It happens very rarely, initially I only saw that problem on the Epson Microcontroller web site and now the same is happening on the Raspberry Pi web site. All other web sites work fine.

When I click on a link I get an error message that the web site cannot be found and to check the internet connection a.s.o. (see attachment). The link I clicked when I got this error message was:

https://datasheets.raspberrypi.com/rpi3/raspberry-pi-3-b-plus-reduced-schematics.pdf

It works fine on a Huawei tablet, so I suspect the problem lies with Firefox and / or my settings.

Any idea what is happening and how to solve that problem?

Kind Regards, Hugo

p.s.: the image upload here does not seem to work, the error message displayed says:

"Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site. We can’t connect to the server at datasheets.raspberrypi.com. If that address is correct, here are three other things you can try:

   Try again later.
   Check your network connection.
   If you are connected but behind a firewall, check that Firefox has permission to access the Web."

Is it possible to password protect one specific tab?

I have a tab with my gmail open, and I use google to login to other sites, so it is sensitive. Some months ago my computer was remotely hacked and someone could get into my mail through firefox when I was not using it. I would prefer not having to log out every other minute and keep receiving email notifications, but make it impossible for someone to open that tab and poke around.

Note: I use Malwarebytes Premium since then, so maybe this is no longer necessary.

This morning I re-installed an update to Zoom (on Linux - ElementaryOS / Ubuntu 18.04). Since installing, I've not been able to follow links from Firefox to Zoom (zoommtg links don't open the app). However, they still work from Epiphany.

The slight confounding factor is that I realised that I've been updated to FF 104 overnight, so that might be an issue.

I've been looking at network.protocol-handler.... settings in about:config, based on this article: https://superuser.com/questions/1343020/how-to-configure-firefox-open-zoom-urls-using-zoom-application#1351073

I've also been looking at xdg-settings (based on this article) https://www.reddit.com/r/kde/comments/i83m8i/zoom_desktop_client_isnt_launching_from_browser/ which suggests the problems might be to do with xdg-settings calling /usr/share/applications/zoom.desktop when the available file is /usr/share/applications/Zoom.desktop However, I have not been able to alter the xdg-settings parameter - when I try: $ xdg-settings set default-url-scheme-handler zoommtg zoom.desktop it does not change the setting - it remains as Zoom.desktop

I should mention that the version of FF I'm running is delivered as a snap - but this was not a problem before 104 / my latest Zoom installation. Also, this version of FF has no problem opening up MS Teams meetings or Slack groups. handlers.json includes : ... "slack":{"action":4},"snap":{"action":4},"zoommtg":{"action":4},"msteams":{"action":4}}, .... so I am thinking the problem must lie somewhee else.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

thanks Andy

Hi: I've used Firefox for years without trouble and I've even given money! However, I think the last update has prevented my banking site from operating correctly. In Bill payment you choose who you want to pay and fill in the amount. This still works. I move to the month, day, year boxes. If I click, say, on the month box I get a dropdown but selecting the month nothing happens. Ditto with day and year. The day box shows 1 and the year shows 202 and nothing changes when using the drop downs. Can't manually fill in the boxes. At first I thought it was my bank but they said there were no reported problems - they would! So tried Brave and Edge. Both worked perfectly. Tried it on my laptop rather than desktop and same problem using Firefox showed up. I hadn't fiddled with any Firefox settings. What to do? Thanks Donald

You actually have an egregious error in your install procedure/program. 1) you fail to tell folks/warn them close down i) FF when installing the update and/or ii) save and delete all open sites in the FF being upgraded. 2) there is a failure to TELL us reboot FF after the install.

Doing research and writing all day long as I do, I actually hold a number of reference sites open in FF as I work.

My friend who happens to understand all this computer stuff tells me that the open sites on my FF is what impeded the successful install . . . .

The other grumble I have with you-all is that it has taken me too much time to try and find a way to respond to you with the information needed to solve this problem for the FF community . . . .

I am a paying/donator to FF . . . and I must tell you I am beyond disappointed by all this dropped ball on sensible communications practice!

Hello! I updated the my browser to v 98.0 (64-bit) on my Manjaro Linux with 5.10.102-1-MANJARO kernel.

The browser works fine. However, there is one thing which is completely breaking my workflow is the new way Firefox handles its PDF downloads.

Previously: - if I used to click on PDF links such as (http://www.africau.edu/images/default/sample.pdf) see google-chrome img they opened in browser and if I downloaded the PDF it would ask me where to store the file. - Downloading PDF on WhatsApp, University website, LinkedIn like apps, it would prompt the "Always Ask" prompt

After the update the applications settings have changed

Now: It is either "always ask" (even in case of links like: http://www.africau.edu/images/default/sample.pdf which is annoying or if I change the setting to "Open in Firefox" on downloading material, when clicked without CTRL+Click (my previous workflow I simply used to click to download material) opens the downloaded PDF in-place so the loaded University website or whatsapp app is closed.

I am really annoyed and I've cycled through all the application settings and none of them seem to work like before.

How do I fix this?

Thank you so much for your help.

Best wishes.

Hello, Every time I restart Firefox or it crashes or power cuts or anything, place.sqlite file gets corrupted and I have to replace the new file with the .corrupt file. This has been happening for over a year now, but my computer is always on and I turn it off maybe once every 4-5 months unless I'm forced to restart by a software or by power cuts or stuff. Lately I have been having issues with my Windows and I have to restart my computer quite often and it is very annoying. This happens whether I close Firefox with the X or using the Exit button or even if I keep it open and restart the computer. My places file is 75MBs. I have the same one since 2014. I'm using Windows 10 and latest Firefox edition. Any ideas?

I have used Firefox to access a site for an online bank, Synchrony. I was able to establish an account at this site and access my information. Now I sometimes can use the site but more often receive an error message, "Access Denied You don't have permission to access "http://auth.synchronybank.com/account/login" on this server. Reference #18.d4eb7068.1649606742.54b71ed."

When I spoke with someone in the Tech Support group for the bank she said the problem was with Firefox and not something they could address. I am able to get to my account using Microsoft Edge, as I have to to get to another site, Shockwave.com.

I much prefer using Firefox than switching browsers for certain sites. I would appreciate if someone at Mozilla investigate these anomalies and determine the appropriate fox within the app. I don't know what changes were made in Firefox when it was updated to my current version, 99.0 64-bit.

Ever since Firefox updated to the new version I've been having constant crashes. I've tried restarting in Safe Mood which doesn't help. Pretty much Firefox will open, say it's not responding, and then by the time it looks like it's about to restore my tabs it crashes. I had to do a refresh and transferred the backup files from an older session which worked, but then it eventually crashed again. I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and tried opening my older profile but it keeps happening. I really need to restore my previous session. There's nothing with my computer that seems to be causing it. I did have 2 windows open with about 8,000 tabs total which I'm sure could be part of the reason, but it never really had trouble before and only just started crashing since the update. Is there any way to fix this without starting over? I read that this is a bug that others have dealt with previously.

Some additional information. I'm on a 64-bit Windows 10 PC.
