I am testing react applications which draws large number of nodes on Canvas through a flowchart library called cytoscape cytoscape. As the number of node gets big, the rendering slows down. This is expected due to performance limitation of the browser. However, there is an unexpected error: the browser breaks with "NS_ERROR_FAILURE" whenever we zoom-in too close to the graph that is drawn.

As the website breaks with this error, the graph disappears and the user experience is compromised. I want to know if there is a way to prevent this error from happening. Slow rendering is not a critical issue but this breakage is a critical problem for us. Let me know if you know the workaround or you need more context about this issue.

Here is the error message. I attached what the graph looks like. Exception { name: "NS_ERROR_FAILURE", message: "", result: 2147500037, filename: "http://localhost:3000/static/js/bundle.js", lineNumber: 329063, columnNumber: 0, data: null, stack:

I have discovered a problem with Firefox updates when opening a Kaspersky Safe Money browser session.

In Firefox, Tools - Settings, Firefox Updates, it shows Firefox is being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates has been greyed out (screenshot attached).

When you use the Help, About Firefox option it also says that Firefox is being updated by another instance (see screenshot attached).

When you check the same Settings in the Safe Money 2nd session, it shows exactly the same information and you cannot update Firefox in any session.

In previous versions of Firefox, when you opened a 2nd session it said that Firefox was being updated by another instance and the option to Check for Updates was greyed out but you could still update Firefox in the main session.

This is not a problem when using Chrome or Edge so it must be related to Firefox so can anyone suggest anything to fix this or does it need Tech Support to look into it for fixing?

Thanks.

When that happens I close the FF and then immediately open it. Now the google sites work properly.

Why the hell is this happening? Is FF responsible or Google?

Dear Firefox community,

we discovered a bug in Firefox 102.0 for Mac; to summarize: downloaded files are in some cases saved, without file extension - not in all cases though (otherwise probably lots of users would've reported this bug already).

It's not completely clear to me, why this happens, I'll first describe it more in detail: We noticed this problem specifically for Citrix Workspace .ica files (by the way, you can find more info reg. this filetype here: https://fileinfo.com/extension/ica ). So instead of saving let's say, 73sz92dz.ica, it's just saving 73sz92dz - if macOS tries to open this file, it defaults to "Text Editor.app", and all normal Citrix workflows are broken. So to explain, why broken: these files are generated automatically from Citrix, after login in the browser; then downloaded and normally opened by "Citrix Workspace.app", if it's installed >> then the remote Desktop opens, and you can work in Windows.

I didn't notice this behavious (saving files without file extensions) for .dmg files, .xlsx, .zip etc., apparently all regular known file-types are saved as expected. Even for files with the .ica file extension, it doesn't always happen; maybe for 30-50% of the Macs. All the same, I'm pretty positive it's not a Citrix problem: if I downgrade Firefox on the clients affected to Firefox v. 101.0.1 for Mac, everything works like a charm again. By the way, we have a couple of hundred of Macs here, and I do distribute some Firefox-settings with our MDM (Jamf) - but it's not related: it happens on unmanaged macs (private, or machines not managed by MDM, etc.) as well, and everything I tried reg. settings to create "automated" workarounds up to now, is more / less unsuccesful (only manual workarounds, like downgrading Ffox or adding the file extension by hand...).

I suspect, it may have to do with the Mime type definitions / handler config files in Firefox: I also noticed there's some older Firefox-bugs reg. this topic. It's not entirely clear for me yet, how these handlers, MIMRE type definitions etc. work in Ffox; I'll post an update, if I make progress, which might be useful for fixing this. By the way, I might just as well post this via Bugzilla, I guess (I'm new to the Firefox community)?

Many thanks for hints!

Hi guys-

I've just recently started having this problem with two websites, both of which I have accounts for: my company's own website - bbowt.org.uk - and Canva.

I can get onto both sites and start using them, but invariably - after a certain amount of time - they will freeze up so that none of the links on the page work anymore.

The only solution is to go to 'Clear Recent History' then 'Clear Active Logins' - but a) obviously I don't want to log out of these sites - I need to be logged in to work, and b) I'd like a permanent solution.

All suggestions welcome

Thanks a lot

How to prevent history for long unique query strings

We frequently visit sites that use long query strings. Some of these strings are unique and session-specific, and the server will never allow them to be used again. Other query string variables are used for session-specific navigation, like a page number or a record ID, and we may never have interest in trying to get back to that exact same spot within an application, but we might want to save some higher-level entry point. As a simple example, look at your history and see how many entries there are for 'www.google.com/url'.

To reduce the size of my history, I'd like to filter what gets logged. Actually I don't mind "History" for history's sake as a record of places we've actually been. The problem is that the same database is used for autotype and other purposes. The current implementation is not ideal for going back and visiting "applications" versus "specific web addresses". Maybe it's better to state that History should track URI's but when we are navigating back through History to go back to a specific page we're more interested in a less-specific URL. Using Google as an example again, it's OK for History to record the fact that I've visited a hundred Google search pages, or page 2,3,4 for a specific search, but ultimately I might only want to save the part of the query string that is relevant to a specific search. The next time I go back to some page there might not be a page 4, so if I'm going through history again for the purpose of revisiting pages, I just want to see page 1 of the results.

Can anyone recommend a plugin that allows regex filtering of history, or recording of page visits into a different database in addition to Firefox History? From there of course it would be convenient to filter that data by time and otherwise, just like History.

From a developer perspective, History gets written to a specific database/file - can someone tell us exactly which file and format that is? I might be able to write a post-processor that filters out underable records.

Is there a better approach to managing history? Is History just an automatic Bookmark, meaning I should be looking for a bookmark manager for this? Or maybe we should do a mass copy of History into a dedicated Bookmark folder, manipulate records there, and use that for back-navigation?

Time to create an Enhancement request?

Should I write a plugin? :)

Thanks.

Hello,

I've recently encountered a curious issue with my Firefox browser (Firefox version 102.0, Windows 11 Insider Preview 10.0.25145.1011). At seemingly random times it will freeze for between two and five minutes (roughly). UI elements become completely unresponsive and the cursor does not update when moving over the browser window. The window will not minimize. Yet, Windows Task Manager does not report the application as being unresponsive. While never a common problem, any freezes in the past would eventually cause the Windows Task Manager to identify it as unresponsive.

I have disabled "recommended performance settings" and hardware acceleration to no avail. Everything seems perfectly normal immediately before and after the freezes, and I've yet to identify how I can trigger them. I do not recall having made any changes to my browser before the freezes started occurring, though multiple Windows updates have taken place since then. If I'm too impatient to wait I will end the Firefox processes via Windows Task Manager and restart it so I can return to my tabs without having cookies deleted. I have 13 plugins mainly covering privacy/security concerns. Is there some sort of debug tool I can engage to see what's occupying Firefox while it's frozen? I've just found the Firefox Task Manager, and will see if it can offer any additional information during/after the freezes.

Thanks, Logan
