Using firefox version 102.3.0esr (64-bit) on openSUSE Leap. Since a couple of weeks the opening of external links by clicking a link from any application or when running firefox <url> is taking about 5 seconds when the browser is already open. This was always instantly and still is on same setup on laptop machine, both are updated to the most recent OS packages.

I've tried safe-mode, new profile, copied profile from the laptop, searched online for references but so far I can't pinpoint what the issue seems to be.

Any kind of information as to resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

So firefox is my favourite browser and I used it a lot. But today, I launched Firefox, opened YouTube and the video had a green overlay. I thought it was in the video but I clicked on an other video: color stripes.

Every day when I go to work with my laptop which has Fedora 36 installed, I open up Firefox in order to fill the "IT Checklist" where I need to visit a couple of local intranet websites in order to fill upbound threshold and inbound threshold.

I see weird Firefox behavior when it comes to, "Firefox remembering past logins". Let's say, I went to a website that has a URL like 20.200.30.200, and a password 1234.

Every time I try to log in to this website, Firefox asks if I want to update my password !! Something which I don't understand. Neither I am changing the password, nor I have written a different password to update with.

Every time Firefox try to update the password of this website with a random long string of character, which is out of my mind. I have to be careful each time and press "Don't Update" option.

On a normal website (let's say Facebook.com) there is no such problem. But when it comes to a local website, Firefox behaves very differently.

There is another website called 20.0.20.1. Its username is root and the password is 4321. But when I try to login in, only the password section is auto-filled, the username section needs to manually be written. Even though about:logins see both domains saving their respective username and password, when it comes to serving users, it sucks misbehave a lot.

Clearly, there is a fundamental problem in Firefox when it comes to handling how logins are saved and served to the user.

I really hope that Firefox 109 fixes this issue and handles the local website properly.

For the past month or so, I've been experiencing frequent Firefox crashes.

They most often happen when I've just opened a page in a new tab, it's painted, and I make the first input trying to interact with it: all tabs will stay rendered and viewable, but otherwise unresponsive. But now they're also happening when Firefox is in the background. The frequency is about once or twice per day, with heavy use.

I'm using Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS (jammy) with all packages up to date, the linux-oem-22.04 kernel package (currently 5.17.0-1025-oem), and Firefox installed via snap. The crash reports contain full details, of course, but the only thing I can think of that's especially "unusual" is that the 1Password extension has been misbehaving for a while (but it's been since long before these crashes began).

My system has 64GB of RAM, which is rarely more than 15% in use.

The only maybe-relevant Bugzilla bug I've found so far is: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1685642

When navigating in some pages, specially in google docs, the browser's URI fragment (the part after the #) changes frequently for each page/header/slide, and all of them are stored in the history.

That behavior adds lots of entries in the history and also hinders the usage of the search functionality of the address bar (as all the duplicates are shown instead of shown only one and other pages). I want to keep one entry per document, at least in specific pages like gdocs where the "fragment" doesn't add any useful information and each document can have lots of them.

Is there any way to configure that behavior, to not save every fragment in the history?


To reproduce the above behavior (the same behavior happens in other pages, not only gdocs):

- Open any gdocs document with several headers, or a gdocs presentation with several pages. - Navigate all the document/presentation, and check the history. - Close the document/presentation tab/window. - In a new window/tab, use the address bar to search the document/presentation by the document name: several entries for the same document/presentation are shown (and if they are lots of them, no other different entries with same words are shown in the address bar). - Check also the history: several entries of the same document/presentation are shown (it could be hundreds for long documents, and thousands after seen few documents).

Hello. I just set up a self hosted firefox-syncserver on my homeserver.

I created a virtual host on nginx which looks something like this: firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com and have a mariadb database as the backend. In about:config on firefox, I then set the identity.sync.tokenserver.uri to https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5.

Everything seems to work fine, but I still have some questions which I did not find an answer to online.

   Since I have this public accesspoint for my syncserver now, can not anyone just use it? What stops them from using my url (https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5) in their about:config?
   What is the SYNC_MASTER_SECRET for which I set to a 256-bit random key?
   When I navigate to https://firefox-syncserver.mydomain.com/1.0/sync/1.5 in my browser, why does it say {"status":"error","errors":[{"location":"body","name":"","description":"Unauthorized"}]}

I would really appreciate a good answer, as I could not find anything good about these points online.

I like seeing the download-panel, so I don't want to turn it off. I'd just like it to show only the last clicked-on entry, not the last 10 or however many it's showing, which seems to include completed downloads.

I can see that it has a hard limit on how many entries it shows. Is there a way for me to adjust that limit?

Ok, there might exist a solution to this, but I am not able to find it or even a better way to explain it.

So, the main issue is, I have a lots of tabs open on my Firefox (Linux) and after some minutes of inactivity, Firefox automatically deletes all the data associated with that site.

So, when I switch back to that site, it reloads.

The main issue is with Whatsapp Web, as I don't get notification if I don't switch to the tab every now and then.

There might be a option for this behavior in the settings but I can't seem to find it.

Hi all, I'm having a lot of problems with Firefox crashing pretty often. Sometimes once or twice a day.

I most often see crashes in the middle of a Webex video conference for work. But Firefox sometimes goes down in other situations that I see no pattern in.

This is Ubuntu 20.04, Firefox 102.0. Unfortunately, it's a complex environment to debug.

First, when firefox goes down, it rarely leaves a crash report behind. So I'm not getting any direct evidence as to what is happening. Second, I run with uBlock active and it is very difficult to function in the browser without long enough for the crash to happen. Third, I typically have several hundred tabs open. I have a lot of memory (64G) in my machine, and the machine doesn't act like it's swapping, so I don't think I'm running out of memory.

Any help getting to the bottom of what's going on is welcome.

I use Firefox on Linux Debian 11 (Bullseye). After a recent automatic update to Firefox 91.10.0esr, some websites will not load (just sit with a blank page, showing flicking loading symbol). Examples are ocado.com and abelandcole.co.uk. I have tried all the usual things to fix, including, switching off VPN, clearing cookies and caches, running in safe mode, all with no success. Both sites run fine in Vivaldi and Brave. I have eventually got the pages to load by disabling IPv6 in Firefox. Clearly there is a problem with 91.10.0esr. I'm not sure whether the workaround of disabling IPv6 might cause other problems or weaken security or privacy?

I am running a fresh instaled Ubuntu 2022.04, so this is the first Firefox-from-snap.

I am a Jupyter user, and when launch the Jupyter-lab (which try read a file in ~/.local/... directory) I get the deny; I can launch it when connect to Jupyter server, which is an annoying behaviour.

I browse for help, so I change the "security.fileuri.strict_origin_policy" to false, but didn't help

I verify that Firefox let me navigate my personal folder, but deny access to hidden folders (name starting with dot). I test this behaviour by create a new directory in my personal folder (navigable) and then change the name by adding the initial dot (access denyed).

I guess this is an effect of security policies of Firefox, but how can I change this policy in a safe way?
