Hi,

Firefox 84.0.1 (64-bit) on Linux Mint 18.3

I have the 'Use the address bar for search and navigation' option selected in settings but when I enter a search all I get is 'Hmm. That address doesn’t look right. Please check that the URL is correct and try again.'

Any ideas please?

Following my router's instructions I exported the certificate. I then accessed the Privacy & Security settings in Preferences, and under View Certificates I imported the router's certificate.

When opening the HTTPS web interface Firefox reports SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE.

We have a new add-on of our own that we were trying to add to the Firefox browser. This add-on was tested locally and worked fine. However, upon trying to install the official add-on to the browser, it is throwing the following error, "Installation aborted because the add-on appears to be corrupt".

The add-on in question is, https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/searchgiggle-search/

Any suggestions to address this issue would be appreciated.

I also noticed another post or two about the same topic. As per those posts, the issue got resolved automatically after some time. Can I expect the same?

TL/DR: See the image. ;)

I'm on Ubuntu 20.04 (Xubuntu flavor), using Firefox 79.0, working on a web site. I'm coding specifically for Arial... and it's returning Times New Roman.

I have Arial installed, via the ttf-mscorefonts package and also adding them from a Win10 box.

Please, no "But you should do 'font-family: Arial, Veranda, sans-serif'" dismissive answers. Why? Because if I do "font-family: Arial, Veranda" I still get Times New Roman. I can even substitute "Pulsar Beta" here (a font that is installed to my local account) and it still gives me Times New Roman.

If I do "font-family: sans-serif" I get Veranda, not Arial... which is odd because Arial is my default font.

Doing "font-family: Veranda" gets my Times New Roman.

Chrome doesn't have this issue!

As a picture is worth a thousand words, see the pic.

What can I do? I did see some bugs that were fixed in v56, but none of the debugging tips help there.

Hey there,

I have the following issue with Firefox, is this maybe something I should report to the Ubuntu support or directly to Bugzilla?

Steps to reproduce: ---

  1. Open Firefox
  2. Go to a page that contains an embedded video that is not playing automatically, e.g. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/sound_of_metal
  3. Do not play the video

Environment --- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:83.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/83.0 Firefox version: 83.0 (64-bit) pulseaudio version: 13.99.2 OS: Ubuntu 20.10 64-bit Gnome version: 3.38.1 Windowing system: Wayland CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-8565U CPU @ 1.80GHz × 8 RAM: 15,5 GiB GPU: Mesa Intel® UHD Graphics 620 (WHL GT2)

Actual results --- pulseaudio process is spawned and rapidly becomes the most CPU consuming process on my machine (especially after a few seconds, when the Web Content ones start to cool down). Even though no sound is actually played! When switching to another tab with no embedded video, pulseaudio keeps overloading the CPU. This only stops after closing Firefox.

Expected results --- I'm not sure this is what should be expected, but I'll give it a shot:

  • pulseaudio process should only be spawned when actually playing a media that requires audio
  • pulseaudio should not be the #1 CPU consuming process
  • pulseaudio process should at the very least not massively use CPU when no sound is playing

Hello everyone, I'm working on customizing the Firefox experience for users within my organization.

I have to really limit their access. One of those requests were to prevent users from minimizing their active Firefox window.

I've found articles like the one below that show how to hide all the buttons: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/906698

However it does not suit the purpose. since it removes all of them and only on full screen.

Is there a way I can just hide the minimize button so that the user can just hide the minimize button?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Starting as of today (Oct 13), the FACEBOOK screen suddenly moves when I am typing a comment. Whenever I hit SHIFT+alpha_letter at the beginning of a line OR simply hit the backspace key, the screen suddenly shifts about a page up, closer to top. This shifts the entry area where I'm typing down and off the screen. Just hitting the backspace to correct a typo causes the screen to scroll on its own. I have to scroll back down to the entry box and if I make another typo, it happens again. It is maddening!

I've restarted in troubleshoot mode and the same thing happens, so it is not an add-on. This is happening on both my Firefox Linux systems AND on a Windows 10 machine, so I don't think it is specifically OS related either. The screen however does stay put, like it is supposed to, using Chrome or Opera.

Is this a Firefox problem or is FACEBOOK messing with Firefox?

Firefox 75.0 has just been released. Address bar has been ruined with dynamic size and lines with increased height. For some unknown reason Mozilla developers think that taking away more vertical space will help their browser have "Focused, clean search experience that's optimized for smaller laptop screens" as they state in the release notes. Outrageous.

Now tell me how to go back to the old behavior.

I want a full horizontal length search result widget as it was before.

I DO NOT want an ENLARGED address bar while searching. Simply annoying that it changes its size and looks like popping out from the upper top toolbar every damn time I type something into it.

I want the ORIGINAL LINE HEIGHT of search results in the expanded address bar.

I want an address bar that doesn't expand when focused with Alt+D, like the old one.

I haven't found an about:config option to restore old behavior. However, a userChrome.css workaround is still good for me.
