I don't really know if this is a bug, or a feature of Firefox's JavaScript core engine. Say I have an array:

var array = [];

I set the length of the array to a very large number:

array.length = 155555555;

This now turns the variable array into an array with 155555555 blank slots. If I then do:

array[502039410402] = 5; // Notice that 502039410402 > the previously set 155555555 for length

array.length remains at 155555555, but the actual array is appended with a sudden index 502039410402 (i.e., index 155555553, 155555554, and then suddenly index 502039410402; see screenshot), with that element containing 5. Is this a bug, or an intended feature?

I would appreciate it if anyone could let me know.

Thanks!

Browsing history weirdly limited view

From a non-programmer who used Chrome a lot until recently: If I hit Cntrl-H like I would in Chrome, I get a frustratingly limited view. Why does it not show timestamps?… (funda kabanzi)

From a non-programmer who used Chrome a lot until recently:

If I hit Cntrl-H like I would in Chrome, I get a frustratingly limited view. Why does it not show timestamps? So I spend time searching and find out about the Library window, and Control+Shift+H. Okay, so that's at least making it possible to see timestamps. Typing this right now, I don't remember if I had to manually add a column to see timestamps, but if I did Jesus Christ. I nearly installed some other software (MZHistoryView) before finding out about Control+Shift+H, just to see timestamps.

Also, every time I press the awkward Control+Shift+H hotkey, it resets the view to "Today". I don't know why it wouldn't default to "Just keep scrolling for as many days as you want". If I search for a specific site immediately after opening the window, then it includes entries for more days than just today. But before searching, it cuts off my view to just today. What's the point of that? Who would want such a restriction as the default view?

Hello,

One of my last Crash ID report : 49e3c347-5deb-4659-b9d1-281b00200514

I experiment this problem on two of my computers. Both are running Debian Buster. If I don't forget to quit Firefox before shutting down my computer, then I believe I won't have problem the next time I switch on my computer and launch Firefox.

However, as most of the time, if I shutdown my computer with Firefox still being open, it seems that Debian Buster doesn't close properly Firefox. In fact, if Firefox was still open when I switch off my computer, I can be sure (100% of the time) that at the next startup, Firefox won't be able to launch the previous session and I'll have to "restore my last tabs".

No other software seem to suffer from the way Debian Buster switch off. Only Firefox.

Thank you for any help one could give me,

Regards, Thatoo

Hi,

I'm trying to change the theme (only using standard dark and light themes) from a linux terminal. My attempted routes include changing a user.js file (the rest of the file works), in particular setting extensions.activeThemeID (I've also attempted doing this in about:config, as well as editing the extensions.json file).

I can change the theme by going to add-ons in a browser. This works fine. I was hoping to automate it (it's not the 1980's - clicking three times to change to a default theme seems unnecessary).

Am I missing something that must be changed in about:config or any other file to change the theme? The extensions.activeThemeID changes when changing the theme in add-ons and seems the likely option but does nothing if I change this value myself.

After a long browser session, sometimes the keyboard shortcut Alt-D stops working, but other keyboard shortcuts like Alt-H work fine.

The shortcuts F6 and Ctrl-L still work.

A restart of the browser fixes it though, so I haven't explored further.

It's not easy to replicate consistently; Firefox doesn't show it when first opened, but after prolonged use it may occur and then stay that way until restarted.

I am using Firefox version 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Ubuntu 18.04. I am not using the [German version of Firefox].

I know I can make this go away with a restart, I'm just curious if there's some troubleshooting steps I could take to identify the cause.

I would like Firefox to enable or disable duplex printing according to which printer I use and not have to change the setting in Firefox every time I want to print with a different setting than the last time I printed. Is there any way to do this?

Recently i got a problem related to push notifications on Firefox, I've already subscribed (or allowed) to notification permission on some websites like Twitter, Gmail but I don't receive any notification when I closed their tabs . It's working fine if the tab of particular website is loaded on Firefox but once I closed it I don't get any notification especially from those websites on which I allowed the notification permission.

Some people suggested me to use chromium or other browsers to get this behavior but I don't want to replace Firefox with any other browser because their dev tools are better than what others are suggesting to me.

Hello.

I use 76.0.1 (64-bit) on Xubuntu 20.04 and same thing happens on every computer. After clean system shutdown or restart, Firefox keeps restoring tabs I used. This never happens if I close Firefox first. Also this never happens when I close and reopen firefox in the same session. I tried everything: - obvious "Restore previous session" restore in options - about:config turning various options: browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash browser.sessionstore.restore_tabs_lazily browser.sessionstore.resuming_after_os_restart browser.sessionstore.max_tabs_undo browser.sessionstore.restore_on_demand privacy.clearOnShutdown.sessions - i even created "user.json" with restore line as someone suggested None of these measures helped. I thought that It may be connected to XFCE session store somehow, so I went through disabling that too - no change. No other program happens to do the same. After reboot, when someone starts Firefox, all my tabs from previous session are reopened instantly. This happens on my both Xubuntu workstations, but never happens on my Windows computers. Please help.

hi guys and girls of mozilla,

ive a little issue with a custom homepage i made which i want to use as my new tab page. im on linux and use firefox 76.0.1 (64bit).

i set up a autoconfig.cfg file with this code:

// var {classes:Cc,interfaces:Ci,utils:Cu} = Components;

  • set new tab page */

try { Cu.import("resource:///modules/AboutNewTab.jsm"); var newTabURL = "/home/joe/.mozilla/firefox/h75u1z1z.default/startpage/index.html"; AboutNewTab.newTabURL = newTabURL; } catch(e){Cu.reportError(e);} // report errors in the Browser Console

i also set up a autoconfig.js file with this code:

// First line should be a comment pref("general.config.filename", "autoconfig.cfg"); pref("general.config.obscure_value", 0); pref("general.config.sandbox_enabled", false);

theyre saved in lib/firefox and lib/firefox/defaults/prefs

i then put firefox to open new tabs with a blank page. now it works like this. when i click open a new tab i get a blank page. but in the urlbar is the file selected. now i only need to press enter and i have my new tab page.

the question now is- how can i force firefox to press enter for me. that it opens the file directly and doesnt need me to press enter.

can u spot any errors in the code i copied from a thread in reddits/r/firefox CSS forum?

or is there a setting i can change which makes it the page opens by itself?

ill add two pics- one when i just opend the new tab and one after i clicked enter

I.e. when i try to download smth from Google drive i got: An error occurred during a connection to doc-0o-ag-docs.googleusercontent.com.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

I try to follow standard advises such as disable tracking and cookies blocking (as well i disable fingerprints and all addons and delete all cookies and history storage and it's didn't help at all).

I try to download in private mod as well, but got stacked with same issue. With Chromium all works fine.

I have a few special buttons on my keyboard (Calculator / Mail). I've set them (on lxde-rc.xml) to run a simple bash script (Volume up / down using pactl). Unfortunately, I've noticed that only on Firefox hangs when I press these buttons (tested with terminal/slack/IDEs/Chrome, no issues). It's a ~2 seconds hang that prevents me from doing anything (tried scrolling/typing/clicking, nothing).

Any way to see what is actually happening / disable this behavior?

Can any one please give details guide on how to use cryptoken operation(challenge & signing) and access to token in JavaScript at client side login page.
