Zoom meeting links not opening

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

I've run into a troublesome error with Firefox for probably eight months now, so I have not been using the browser. Whenever I attempt to install ANY add-on from the Firefox add-ons page, I get the message "[Add-on name] could not be installed because Firefox could not modify the needed file". Furthermore, attempting to download the add-on file manually (should it be available on a github page or the like) leads to the same message or a notification that the download failed.

As a matter of fact, downloading almost any kind of file on Firefox inevitably fails. The exact notification is shown in the upper-right corner of the browser window, where downloads are shown, and beneath the file in question is an indicator that says "Failed". Everything from .png to .zip to .exe appears in the downloads queue for a second, then fails.

I have tried every solution the Firefox add-on troubleshooting page has suggested, including solutions suggested in other threads, such as deleting/creating new profiles. I have also attempted to completely reinstall Firefox on multiple occasions, as well as the refresh Firefox option.

To recount, the following troubleshoot solutions did not work:

--Everything on the Firefox add-on troubleshooting page --Restart Firefox --Refresh Firefox --Create new Firefox profile and attempt to install add-ons from there --Delete and renew the extensions* files from the profile root folder --Modifying the xpinstall.signatures.required in about:config (true or false, doesn't matter) --Modifying the extensions.alwaysUnpack in about:config (again, true or false, doesn't matter) --Double-checking allow list and permissions on local firewall and antivirus software (the app is protected, add-ons are allowed) --Disabling antivirus software --Running Firefox as Administrator --Reinstall Firefox --Restarting PC

If I want to download a file or add an extension, I need to switch to a different browser such as a chromium-based one or Microsoft Edge to download the file. In the case of add-ons, I switch browsers, download the file, and select the "install add-on from file" option under "manage extensions" in about:addons.

One final thing. It seems that sometimes streaming sites won't work on Firefox (even with ad-blocker disabled or the site allowed through the ad-blocker), and sometimes video won't properly load either. These things work fine on other browsers.

I really like Firefox as a browser and enjoy the privacy it provides built-in. I didn't have any of these issues up until last year and I was forced to switch over. I would really appreciate any help with this.

The title already says it all. Whenever i have some sound or video running in any tab, clicking on certain things like other videos or animated stuff in the same tab or another one causes a small interruption in the sound/video. Clicking a lot of times results in sound and video stuttering. I does not appear when i just click another link.

I already tried updating firefox, reinstall firefox, even downgrading firefox. This problem only appears in firefox and only on this device. I would be very thankfull for some advices, because this is really annoying.

I just updated to FF 111.0. After restarting FF comes up but then nothing. After a bit of I got the option to force close it. I tried opening a Private Browser and that worked fine so I figured it was one of my add-ons. However after closing the Private Browser and trying opening normally again it worked just fine. Disable all of my add-ons and for the same issue.

Renamed my AppData/Roaming/Mozilla folder and starting as normal worked fine. What a giant pain in the <bleep> trying to set everything back up.

Performed some more science and noticed this. After setting my Mozilla folder back, starting FF, and looking at the TaskManager, There would be 3 processes, one of those after a bit of time would show in red as Not Responding (or words to that effect). Clicking the window a few times to get the force close dialog again. Trying to open FF again, it opened just fine.

So I'm tempted to blame something in the update that is causing this. Yes, I could just start with a fresh Mozilla folder and reinstall all of my add-ons and blah blah blah, but whose to say that after setting everything back up the way I had it the problem won't come back.

I have thought about rolling back to FF 110.0.1, and suppressing the update check.

OS: Windows 10 64-bit Firefox: 111.0 64-bit

A while ago I made a Firefox account with my Yahoo email address as the primary email, and my Outlook email address as the secondary email. Eventually I realized that I didn't need my Yahoo email account anymore, so I deleted it, forgetting that it was being used as the primary email for my Firefox account. Now I can't remove my Outlook email from my Firefox account without verifying my Yahoo email account, and I can't even delete the Firefox account since it was made under the Yahoo email account as a primary email address.

Now I can't use my Outlook email address to create a new Firefox account either.

I used Samsung smart switch to transfer data to new phone. When I tried to sync Firefox on new phone with my PC, old phone and tablet I was asked to type in the authorisation code. No matter how I have set my e-mail accounts no e-mail is received in my spam folder or in-box. There is no way to contact Mozilla to resolve this. I have not received any e-mail to state that my sign in was blocked for security reasons nor have I received an error code. I setup a bugzilla account and tried to request that my account be unlocked but there was no way to do this. All it has done is to create an entry that I reported "Zarro Boogs found". How do I get my account unblocked as the advice on the help pages is no advice.

A couple users at our site intermittently receive a SSL_ERROR_BAD_MAC_ALERT error when navigating to Google in Firefox. This happens in Version 99.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10 computers. When the issue occurs, users can navigate to other websites without issues. Navigating to Google in a different browser works no problem. Restarting the browser will resolve the issue. Clearing cookies and site data has no effect. Users can also refresh the page after some time and the issue will go away.

Any idea as to why this is happening?

Hello team,

I'm not sure what happened, but I was not able to open Firefox after restarting my PC. I currently run Windows 11 on a fully upgraded rig.

Up until today, I have been trouble free. Error 1: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

I tried several options - and have been googling/trying several steps for a couple of hours (after each step, I restarted the PC):

1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Attempted to use Command Lines to open Firefox https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/CommandLineOptions 3. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile - when I did this the new profile would not display in the Profile Manager, but it would display in the Profiles folder under Appdata [I tried this multiple times] 4. Deleted the profiles.ini file

After deleting the .ini file Error 2: "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible." 1. Uninstalled and then Reinstalled a fresh copy of Mozilla 2. Opened Profile Manager and attempted to create a new profile. After following the Profile Wizard, another error pops up: "An unexpected error has prevented your changes from being saved."

I am completely stumped. I hope you can help, Sean
