Since about a month, the download dialog pops up multiple times a day (seems randomly; I did not download anything manually). If the list of downloaded files (history in download dialog) is not empty, it pops up and stays. If the list of downloaded files is empty, it also pops up randomly and immediately disappears again.

I searched for this issue and found out that the automatically popping up download dialog can be disabled with `browser.download.alwaysOpenPanel=false`. Unfortunately, this is not what I want because the dialog should pop up when a download has been completed - but not randomly.

I would like to find out why this happens because I am a bit afraid that this may be malicious behavior (e.g., triggered by an extension). Do you have any idea where this behavior comes from or how to figure this out? Are there appropriate logs to take a look at? Can I see somehow which Firefox components are active at which point in time?

Hi,

I use Mendeley Web Extension to pull articles and other things from Firefox directly into my Mendeley library. I will usually rapidly read through the PDF file online before deciding to add it or not. For some unknown reason, Firefox blocks the use of Mendeley on PDF file, for security reasons, and I can no longer add them to my library. Most references are only available as PDF files making the add-on completely useless. Is there a security feature that I can disable to be able to use the extension again?

Kind regards,

Mathias

I was having problems with my email and was looking more closely at those settings as well as firefox/ deleted cache, cookies , etc. 5 months ago my email was hacked so I am being extra cautious....

I just discovered there are many items listed that say to save the application. I do not recall adding these.... How did they get there? I recall whatever was listed I chose that I be asked what to do with it. Here is a screenprint so you can see what the items are. I use Linux. The only change I made after seeing this is to ask me about anything not listed. The answer had been to save. Should I change them all to ask me? Most of the items I do not use and or know what they are. Thanks ! [email-removed]

Up until Firefox 64, Firefox had limited support for RSS:

  • Viewing a RSS feed would show you the feed items, with an option to do something with the feed.
  • Live bookmarks would actually subscribe to those feeds

I can understand removing Live Bookmarks. It's a big feature. I don't understand removing the (what I assume to be) XSLT stylesheet that made RSS feeds not look like a wall of XML. Does anybody know what the conversation was here? Are there minutes?

Even basic RSS support helps people interact with the web, and since Chrome and Firefox both dumped RSS, users are being driven further and further into the arms of "Platforms" who handle this stuff through black-box algorithms. And so much tracking.

Mozilla should reverse this one. Bring RSS back hard.

Hi!

So I switched from Chrome, and there is one thing that keeps annoying me: the homepage and new window behavior.

In Chrome, you could define your pages that load when first launching the browser, but when you open a new window, it would default back to an empty page. This is the behavor that I want.

In Firefox, I only found the solution with setting the browser.startup.page option to 0, so new windows open with a blank page while you could still edit your homepages. But here, I would have to click the homepage button each time I initially start the browser. This is quite annoying, since it would always be an extra step when launching the browser.

Could anyone help me get the behavior like in Chrome? I want Firefox to open my homepages on startup, but use empty pages when it's already open.

Sometimes, if the computer is offline and Firefox is open, when the computer goes back online Firefox can't connect to any website, with the page "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". The only fix is to close Firefox and open it again. Going offline doesn't always do this, and while I'm not sure of what exactly causes this to happen, a way to easily reproduce it is:

  • Turn off the Wi-Fi;
  • Reboot the computer;
  • Open Firefox;
  • Turn on the Wi-Fi;

After the computer is connected, refreshing the page sends you to "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site.". You have to restart Firefox.

A way that doesn't 100% reproduce it, but works enough times, is to reboot the computer without turning off the Wi-Fi, and open Firefox as soon as possible (before the computer manages to connect to the router, which is the part that isn't always consistent). Rarely, it happens after suspending the computer, or after a disconnection due to an unstable connection. I can reproduce it in Firefox's safe mode. I have a hunch that maybe this is related to networking drivers.

I'm using a Lenovo IdeaPad 5 14ARE05 (Network controller: Intel Corporation Wi-Fi 6 AX200 (rev 1a)), Linux NixOS 22.11 (I don't know about Windows).

Ask me for any log you might need.

This is kinda a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1078253, except that their solution does nothing to me.

Same issue as [this poster] . I've seen no correlation between pixelsPerPx and cursor size, but have noticed this behavior doesn't occur in Manjaro's version of FireFox, so I started asking myself, Self, "what might the differences be here?" Answer I got back: they (Ubuntu 22.04) have bowed to the god of SNAPpiness, and Manjaro still hasn't (gets updates from Mozilla rather than the snap store).

Am I on to something here? What else could be the difference between the two flavors of Linux? Any help would be greatly appreciated, my tired eyes have forced me to change default browser to Chrome or Edge, both of which don't seem to respect my privacy like Firefox. Interesting to note that Thunderbird doesn't have the "flea-size cursor" and it also is not using snap for updates.

I've checked a couple of the "similar topics" before posting here. I'm not sure if I am having the same problem or something else.

Back Story: I have a "few" windows and tabs open in FireFox. I would finish what I was doing, shut down and then the next time I booted up and loaded FireFox, all sessions would be restored and all log ins honoured (kept). That is: I was still logged in.

(Moving to now) Yesterday I powered up and ALL sites were logged out. About 20 log ins were needed. Hmmmmm... gmail, and the rest.

"Ok... something happened. No problems, things should be ok from now. I've logged in, so all is sweet."

Today I power up: All logs ins lost. Had to go through it all again.

Gmail is throwing security alerts at me hand over fist. Yeah, that is good in some ways. I get that part. But I've logged in.

Seems - my thoughts - that the cookies aren't being saved. But why? I haven't touched them or their settings.

Yes, I did do a clean out of older cookies. But left the gmail ones, and other sites I know I use. I have `adblocker ultimate` installed.

Now I am logged in, if I open the `cookies` and look I should see them there for the sites to which I am logged in - yes?


To be clear: When I am done, I do NOT `exit` FireFox. All windows, tabs, sessions are left. I just shut down the machine. Then next time I load FireFox and they are re-loaded and log ins are maintained.

Hello, I have been using Firefox as my main browser for more than a decade. One could say i am some Mozilla fanboy, having convinced many of my friends and relatives to use Firefox instead of any chrome based options (Which there are to many these days). It struck me today, as i was reworking some workflow elements in many programs i use daily, that it is impossible to change any key binding in Firefox anymore. I know it has been a while now, and i searched all over the web for an answer or a solution, but at this point it is clear that other than going in the code and recompiling Firefox manually, it is not possible. I stumbled upon the (only) extension that allows to change some shortcuts, but the two that i wanted to change are impossible to configure from it, being disabling only f12 as i would use it for other things but i do not want to lose the dev console and also ctrl+L to open the address bar, it is quite inconvenient and would much prefer to use ctrl+spacebar as it matches many other bindings i am using with other software. There have been many other features that were changed in the recent years that made me start to look for an alternative, as i see features melting away almost as quickly as the user base of the product.

I do understand that one person's problem is not going to change the way a big piece of software is working, but i am wondering, why are the users losing such features as basic as customizing key bindings in a piece of software that used to be so incredibly customizable in the past? Why is the only viable option to anything chrome based losing it's edge over the competition? Is Firefox v150 be based on the chromium engine or will it die before?

Thank you in advance, and no, i don't need the link to the shortcut page, i already have it.
