I am using Firefox 77.0 and get flashing images that seem to occur randomly. One just appeared as I am typing this. It is quite annoying and, and for anyone susceptible to strobe lighting, may be dangerous.

Operating system is Fedora 32. I have also recently installed a Microsoft wired, laser mouse but I don't think this is causing the problem.

I have Gnome Tweaks installed and have noticed that the Windows Title bar items flash at the same time.

Heyoh, I have a question about mbox, using a Mac. Someone is going to send me an mbox file containing a bunch of emails. So, I've got my Firefox browser open. Do I just open up my gmail account inside Firefox and esto-presto, it will open in this browser, or do I need an extension, or a plug-in, or I don't know what to make this work? I type MBOX into the help topics for Firefox, and get ZERO returns. Seems like there's a lot of apps for MBOX in the App store, but I have no idea what's legit, what's necessary, and I thought it should be free. Much appreciated if someone can help. Thanks!

Hi,

I've encountered my fair share of bugs. I'm also disabled, so I need a lot of safety and accessibility fixes to use any browser.

Debugging advice often involves ""safe" mode," which disables some safety and accessibility tools, or "refresh Firefox," or otherwise using new profiles, which require me to set up the safety and accessibility tools before I can do anything. (For example, by default Firefox uses blinking cursors, autoscroll, and smooth scrolling, all of which trigger my migraines.)

In the past I've sometimes copied specific items, or cleared out a new profile folder and copied everything from an already-set-up profile folder.

Are there better or worse ways to copy bookmarks, saved passwords, about:config settings, user css, add-ons, and add-on settings?

(The previous time I asked this, I somehow got diverted to the wrong forum.)

I am using Firefox behind a corporate proxy which uses a fairly complex PAC file to route traffic. This is configured at the OS level and I typically have the "use system proxy settings" option checked.

After a using Firefox for some period of time (generally between 1/2 and hour and 5 hours) external pages stop loading. All the internal pages that that don't need the proxy still load but external pages hang when loading. They appear to start loading the page but always hang before finishing. Once this has started this will happen to all external pages.

Restarting Firefox fixes the issue. Going into settings and changing the proxy setting will fix the issue (e.g. I have the proxy url used by the system set up in "automatic proxy configuration URL" and swapping between that and "use system proxy settings" will fix the issue. I have tried downloading the PAC file locally and running off that as well, but I get the same issue (works for a time before I have to swap proxy settings).

I'm slowly trying to add more and more sites to "No Proxy for" list in case it's some kind of circular lock without effect so far. It affects both Windows and Mac, and only Firefox (chrome, IE, Edge and Safari all work without issue).

I'm not sure how to debug the issue further. I'd like to do some kind of trace route through Firefox to see if when the block hits it is always failing at the same point but I'm not sure how to do that. Where should I start?

My company allows me to update/install FF, but not to access the extensions site (recent change), including in-browser through the Options menu. Nor can I uninstall the latest version, which is useless to me without those extension. Is it possible to copy/paste the extension files from one installation of FF to another and have them still function correctly? If so, where do I find those files?

Hello Firefox community

I use Firefox as my primary browser on 5 devices - personal desktop, work laptop, spouse desktop, spouse laptop, and personal laptop. On only my personal laptop, I frequently encounter SSL cert errors warning me of invalid issuer. I don't encounter the same error on any other device (including also my phones). Is there some way I can force an update of the Firefox certificate repository? I assume these are being caused by out of date cert repositories or the like. The cert I get on the other devices is the same cert presented to this laptop; only the laptop issues the error.
