So I have been some issues with my Debian bookworm (Gnome bugged out) and changed to Sparky ( not a massive update I know, it's the same repo anyway) . Once Sparky Firefox upgraded to the latest version, I noticed some interesting behavior (tor running in the background and etc). I wasn't careful with playing gods with storage & cache, so had to again reinstall sparky. To my surprise my all passwords, bookmarks. add-ons are gone. I had just one account (was also using the dev browser for some time), so really it's awkward ad upsetting situation, any troubleshooting steps you can suggest?

Firefox allow to disable access to canvas for lowering fingerprinting, it's cool !

But as web developer : i like to ask this access before try to using it,

Something like :

1. Do you alllow canvas ? 2. Show the browser part 3. Wait for user answer 4. It's OK : download PDF done with canvass 5. It's not OK : shown an error to user.

To avoid such situation (see screencast)

Until recently, whenever I downloaded a file, the Firefox dialogue requesting the destination folder started out at the folder I last used to download a file from that web site. Now it appears to always start in the last used folder, independent of web site. Since I seldom download more than one file at a time from a given web site, this means I have to navigate the directory tree for every download, which makes the whole process take two or three times as long as it used to. Is there any way to restore the old behavior? My searches on the web have only turned up suggestions that are accompanied by responses that say "That didn't work." (Running 101.0.1 on Ubuntu 18.04, if that matters.)

I know there are add-ons that will let me script the download folder selection process, and I'll go that route if I must, but I'm hoping that my preferred browser behavior is still available - "just works" is preferable to "you can beat it into submission if you try hard enough".

For instance there is a site I use, which has a list of my posts, with buttons to delete the posts. I click the delete button, this opens an "Are you sure?" modal window, I click delete, the modal closes, I am on the same original list page with the same URL, but now I have another pseudo-page in my back button history that I have to go through.

If I do this with three more posts, I will have an additional three back button history dropdown entries to navigate back through.

When I exceed the number of entries shown in the dropdown, I have to keep clicking through the quasi-paginated list of duplicated back button history entries for the same exact page, to get back to the page I was on before ever going to the list page.

I have my web application built using angular v8.0. In one of the page, we construct a date field in the corresponding component.ts file as following.

data: new Date(modifiedAt).toLocaleDateString('en-US',
                          { weekday: 'long',
                             year: 'numeric', 
                             month: 'long',
                             day: 'numeric',
                             hour: '2-digit',
                             minute: '2-digit' }),

Here modifiedAt is variable of type Date. The data attribute is then passed to an HTML template in another component.ts file and using date pipe from angular framework, we format this value as shown in below code snippet to display it in UI.

<span class="table_data-wrapper" title="{{ data | date : 'dd LLLL yyyyy h:mm a' }}">
      {{ data | date : 'd LLLL yyyy h:mm a' }}
    </span>

Now in Firefox 101.0.1 when this page loads and tries to display this value, we are getting the following error in the browser console.

ERROR Error: InvalidPipeArgument: 'Unable to convert "Wednesday, April 13, 2022 at 09:08 PM" into a date' for pipe 'ht'.

The same piece of code with no change in the 2 code snippets mentioned above in bold works just fine with older versions of Firefox. For e.g. with v 100.0 it works just fine and renders the date value appropriately. This issue is causing other things to break on our application in production. Can some one please provide help on what might be going wrong here ?

Thanks, Maneesh Sharma

I was using Firefox and Owl (the addon).

I just upgraded to Fedora 36. I treid installing Owl and an alternative called "Dark Reader" and both cause a message stating they are corrupted.

I enabled dark mode in the browser. Google immediately changed to a dark background which I can more easily see. This site ignores the setting and is forcing me to work with very limited ivsion

I can barely make out the UI. I found what might be a solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356233 but after hours trying to read it I gave up and am wirting here.

It is very frustrating that other sites respond to firefox settings and your support site does not.

I do not and will not manually close my browser session every time I want to shut down my computer in order to get it to do what it's supposed to. Linux sends SIGTERM to all running processes on shutdown. Firefox isn't handling this correctly, obviously, because if it was, then my settings would be getting respected. SIGTERM is the standard signal sent to windows that need to close gracefully and are expected to still be functional.

NOTE: Do not provide windows-specific support to this thread. I am not running firefox on windows, and I do not possess a windows computer or license.

The message about the "Browser being managed by your organization" that shows up in Firefox settings, is new. I've been using Linux mint with Firefox for over a year on my own personal laptop and this message just showed up in my Firefox settings kind of out of the blue.. Can it be related to version 100? I was just trying to do something online. totally unrelated to the Firefox settings, and now I've spent a considerable amount of time trying to get rid of this policy. I tried to set the AppUpdate policy to true, but it still will not allow me to check for updates in the settings, or if I go under help, about. I do not use the laptop often, so this is the first time I've been unable to check for updates, and I would prefer not to have an enterprise security policy running on my personal laptop. I do not know how it came to be on the laptop but any help removing, or resetting the controls would be greatly appreciated.

The Historic Houses Association (www.historichouses.org) site has an option to show a map of interesting places. When I view this map in Firefox on Android or Windows 11, the icons show up correctly. For instance in the example map, next to Lincoln. In Android/Windows the icon shows a small castle in a drop pin while here in a Linux desktop it just shows a cross hatched box. The link to the web page still works. The roads in the Android/Windows versions correctly show A1, A46 etc. But here in Linux, you can just make out the road numbers behind the vertical hatching. Over a long period I have seen this has occur on a number of sites but I think that the maps are probably (cannot prove it) Mapbox/OpenStreetMap. But when I look at OpenStreeMap it self, the Road Numbers are fine and when I add a layer involving tags, they show as normal.

I know I could address this inquiry HHA but they will simply say 'they do not support Linux'. The site works in other environments so why not Linux? Also, as I have said, it has occurred on other sites in the past (though I must admit I cannot remember which ones and when - I tried a few while writing this support request) Is it likely that the web pages are being downloaded with a catalogue of Icons but this fails in the Linux version of Firefox? Would this account for the road numbers being corrupted as well?

The PC is running a fairly new (last 10 days) installation of Linux Manjaro with Mate desktop. However, this has been happening for some time (a couple of years) during which time, I have used Linux Mint, Debian and Manjaro, with Mate and Gnome desktops. Firefox is used as provided by Linux Manjaro, including Noscript and Adblocker - I have tried viewing this page with both disabled. The only changes I have made to Firefox settings is to enable 'when you open a link .... switch to it immediately', 'search for text when you start typing' and set 'browser.tabs.closeWindowWithLastTab' to false.

I have put up with the problem because it only affects me, however I am about to load Linux Manjaro on to computers for other less computer literate/tolerant people who will be using similar maps. It would help them if I could get a fix.

Thanks for your time

New tabs can't be seen. There appears to be no setting to control top/bottom tab placement -- of course, I want tabs across the top and visible, please. Help!

Also, above "Preferences" > "General" (about:preferences#general), there's an info box that says "Your browser is being managed by your organization". Help!

I have a website stored in the popup exceptions. Yet every time I go to that website, Firefox blocks the popup, despite the fact that the URL/URI stored in the settings is EXACTLY the same as the URL/URI of the website being visited.

I then have to press 'allow' every time. Is there any workaround for this please ?

I notice some reported this problem in 2020, in a post that's been archived.

I reported it previously in a different post, but I may not have provided enough information. I am using currently 91.10.0esr (64-bit) on openSUSE Leap 15.3 Linux.

When I right click on a web page, and choose "Save Page As..." from the menu that appears in response to the right click, then choose "Web Page, complete (*.htm *.html)" as how to save the page, Firefox goes through some process, something is placed on the disk drive. But often, the status of the download shows as "Failed". That is until I retry the download. I've even been able to "Show all downloads" and click on an icon to retry it, sometimes days or weeks later, without even re-visiting the web page which was originally saved, but after clicking on the icon to retry saving the page, the status shows as "Completed". It could just be an issue with Firefox reporting the status, rather than an actual failure.

Is this a "bug"/"error" in the program code for Firefox? If so, is there someway to report it, or will this post serve as such a report?

I'd appreciate any helpful thoughts.
