I'm trying to install Firefox for Chromebook using Flatpak (article https://mzl.la/3pbybGW)

But I am faced with choosing a ref. See attached image. I have no idea how to choose, or what this even means.

Can anyone provide me with guidance on this?

My device is a Google Pixelbook with the latest ChromeOS.

Thanks

I have had issues where I am trying to open a new page or refresh a page and it stays at the bottom of the page. Example the Firefox help pages where I scroll to bottom click on the next page number, and it goes to that page but stays at bottom. Or if on Hibid and want to look at a listing, look at the listing and then want to go back to the previous page, it opens the listing at the bottom of the page, not the top. Sometimes it will open the new page where ever it wants

Twice, I have tried the following sequence:

1. Manually close browser 2. Closed Firefox in Task Manager 3. Refresh Firefox 4. Uninstall parent.lock and .parentlock files 5. Reinstall Firefox

Also observed several iterations of Firefox running simultaneously and using significant CPU and Memory resources.

This "Firefox is already running but is not responding" has gotten out-of-hand and I have switched back to MS Edge until Mozilla fixes their problem.

I can't connect to Amazon.com. I keep getting the following error message:

Secure Connection Failed

An error occurred during a connection to www.amazon.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

I think this is a problem with Firefox. Any suggestions or should I switch to a new web browser?

I appreciate any suggestions.

Hi, firstly, I am not very technical so I will describe my issue as simply as I can. When I open my Application Menu (3 horizontal bars on the top right hand side of my screen, underneath the X) and click on the Bookmarks heading, there is a heading showing as Recent Bookmarks. This then lists bookmarks that I have used. As I do not want this list. How do I stop/get rid of this "Recent Bookmarks" heading &/or list. Thank you to anyone who can help (without a lot of jargon/computer speak).

Hi, To who it may concern, a big thank you. I am a longtime Linux Firefox user. I had a secondary password, but somehow it has been deleted. I have changed my primary password and I have full access to Gmail, Youtube and other Google pages. My email address has always been the same for many years. It is recognised by Firefox when I type "My account on Firefox" though I am not allowed to enter another secondary email address.

I am almost 80 and not very computer literate.Kind regards,

Patrick Van Niekerk.

All of a sudden, a site I visited appeared at the top of my login pages. Just below the search bar. It contains “import bookmarks,” “getting started,” “and this site.” I don’t want any of that there. I thought I had all memory stuff shut off. Can’t figure out a way to delete it. Can you help.

Hello, I'm having similar issue like this person https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/1b8e2za/everything_is_missing_after_update/, where my shortcuts and recent activity is just blank. I tried to reinstall firefox, install beta version, remove cookies and cache but nothing helped me. Seems it happened after a update.

Hello all. I am looking for a way to prevent the width of tabs from resizing when either adding or subtracting tabs from the tab bar. The only reference I can find to this issue is a 2014 post found here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/989387. The suggestions therein do not apply to the current FF version. Among other things, the suggestion to go to the setting "browser.tabs.animate" does not seem to apply to the current FF version since I can not find such a setting. Like the OP in the 2014 post, the auto tab resizing drives me nuts! (Maybe he/she and I are the only people in the whole FF world community who are bothered by this?!) I would much prefer the tab width to stay the same and use the arrows on each side of the tab bar to access tabs that do not fit across the screen when many tabs are open. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am using FF 128.0 with Win 10 22H2 build 19045.4651. Thanks for any suggestions. John H
