For the past couple of months I have been getting the message www.bbc.com. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR

Error code: PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR when loading pages on www.bbc.com website. I have done a search on the internet and it seems this is a common problem with Firefox and does not affect othere browesers. I have done what was advice given online but it does not solve the problem. It is getting so bad I may have to start using one of the other browsers even though I prefare Firefox.

So, there's an extension I want to pin, right? It has no menu, meaning that it's grayed out usually. However, the website it's supposed to affect does not get affected. That is, unless I were to refresh the site, then quickly move my mouse to the extensions menu, open it, and show the extension.

I'm having problems with Firefox using 75% of processor capacity. In "top" I see many instances of "Isolated Web Co".

At the moment of this screen shot the processor is not overwhelmed, however, it will sometime jump up to 75% and the system will seem to freeze.

What is the "Isolated Web Co"? I'm thinking a virus.

Thank you.

"Your browser is being managed by your organization" is on the top of my settings page and it preventing me from using some of my streaming services. I am at my home, don't work at a job where I would ever be on a network, what the heck? It is some name I don't even know. Did I get hacked? Is it a virus? Nothing I have seen on here so far has worked, and I AM NOT A LINUX USER. (After looking at other answers, seems to be a problem with Linux.) I am on Windows 11. Thanks!

Dear community,

since some recent update I am asked for a primary password every time I open the browser, which is higly annoying. I like my passwords protected by a primary password and in former times it was only asked for when trying to reveal a saved password. I know this has probably to do with me using Firefox sync, because I use the browser on my Android too but I would like to keep my devices synced. Besides: On my phone I am only asked for a fingerprint when accessing passwords, not every single time I open the app. There must be a way to reconfigure this on a desktop, right?

I change nothing in my settings and I am now on Dark background everywhere despite having: - forced the system settings (OS) to stay in light background - in about:preferences appearance I've manually selected (forced) the light background - in about:config I've tried to switch the browser.theme.content-theme to "1" (instead of "0")

this is really frustrating, I would like to get a better "reading" of what happens, as an Engineer I am happy to also squint at logs if needed, please consider adding a preference / settings change log file

Hi,

  I am running the latest Firefox v122 (firefox_122.0+build1-0ubuntu0.22.04.1~mt1_amd64.deb not snap)

and when using the --profile option to specify the startup profile it fails to start even on a NEW system that never ran Firefox if I give it a directory that resides on a mounted ext3 filesystem.

  All the permissions are OK and yet running strace I see an error and after a few second will get the

generic pop-up with the error message: (after a few seconds)

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To use Firefox, you must first close the existing Firefox process, restart your device, or use a different profile.

 Running the SAME from /tmp works fine, but I need the profile to reside on a persistent storage area

so if the LIVE distro restarts then it can restore the previous session, bookmarks, options, etc...


============================================================
 The 2 directories were created identically and have the exact same permissions:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ mkdir /tmp/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ mkdir /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ ls -ald /tmp/firefox3 drwxrwxr-x 17 xubuntu xubuntu 1080 Jan 21 22:05 /tmp/firefox3

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ ls -ald /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3 drwxrwxr-x 17 xubuntu xubuntu 4096 Jan 21 21:13 /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3

============================================================

The only difference is that one is mounted on tmpfs and the other is on /dev/nvme0n1p2:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ df -k /tmp/firefox3 Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on tmpfs 32560016 351528 32208488 2% /tmp

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ df -k /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3 Filesystem 1K-blocks Used Available Use% Mounted on /dev/nvme0n1p2 195751828 51056068 142695768 27% /media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home


============================================================

When starting firefox with the /tmp/firefox3 profile directory it works fine and starts up:

xubuntu@xubuntu:~$ firefox --profile /tmp/firefox3

newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0775, st_size=1040, ...}, 0) = 0 newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3/.parentlock", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=0, ...}, 0) = 0 openat(AT_FDCWD, "/tmp/firefox3/.parentlock", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 11 fcntl(11, F_GETLK, {l_type=F_UNLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0, l_pid=-487933736}) = 0 fcntl(11, F_SETLK, {l_type=F_WRLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0}) = 0 uname({sysname="Linux", nodename="xubuntu", ...}) = 0


BUT when using the persistent storage on the real filesystem (but SAME exact permissions) it fails:

newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3", {st_mode=S_IFDIR|0775, st_size=4096, ...}, 0) = 0 newfstatat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3/.parentlock", {st_mode=S_IFREG|0664, st_size=0, ...}, 0) = 0 openat(AT_FDCWD, "/media/xubuntu/sys_n01_home/mozilla/firefox3/.parentlock", O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC, 0666) = 11 fcntl(11, F_GETLK, {l_type=F_UNLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0, l_pid=1519466008}) = 0 fcntl(11, F_SETLK, {l_type=F_WRLCK, l_whence=SEEK_SET, l_start=0, l_len=0}) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied) close(11) = 0

Am I doing anything wrong or is this some weird startup issue / race condition in the parentlock management?

Thank you for looking into this.

PS: I can upload the full strace file for both scenarios if needed. Thanks again.
