Hello

Should Firefox be syncing between installations on different platforms?

On my Windows Firefox, I have the CamelCamelCamel extension and the Facebook containers extension, but on Linux those aren't being picked up!

What am I missing? When I force it to Sync on Manjaro Linux, it says it is all synced up, but those extensions I mentioned aren't coming through!

Thanks

hi, i just installed ubuntu 20.04 LTS. I am not running any extensions or add-ons, just default settings. I can't play any youtube video that is considered 'live'. I can watch any other video on youtube, however. For the 'live' videos, I get a message: 'Your browser can't play this video, learn more' And when I click learn more, it says my browser is up to date. I tried streaming other videos from websites like crunchyroll.com and none work. I followed some suggestions to clear cache, turn on video/audio settings, etc. but nothing is working. Please assist. thanks.

Is there a way that I can change this setting in config rather than downloading an add-on? This changed with the most recent Firefox update for me (I'm currently on 85.0.1. for Ubuntu). Currently, the default save behavior is for bookmarks to save to the most recent folder you've picked. My preferred behavior would be for all bookmarks to save to "Other bookmarks" until I can file them away later.

Hello,

I love Mozilla Firefox thus am asking this.

Why is graphics performance worse in Firefox than it is on Microsoft's Edge and Google's Chorme browser?

Is it a matter of settings or what?

I have a AMD Ryzen 5 3400GE APU which is very capable of decoding 4k@60 VP9, but when I try watching Youtube videos in this video settings on Firefox, the frame reproduction isn't smooth. I don't have that problem with Chrome and/or Edge.

The video in question is the following:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Wo3aJjwTlA

PS: not sure why but some 4k@60 VP9 videos on Youtube lag more than others.

For controlling the behavior when openning an external link (from a different program) there is `browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external`. It can be configured to always open a new window, or always open a new tab in the last active window.

However, I use multiple virtual desktops on linux and when I open a link (from anywhere, really), I'd like it to be opened on the current virtual desktop but also in an existing window if there is one. It should almost be as if the firefox on each virtual desktop behaves independently for this purpose though I don't think actually doing that (one firefox instance per virtual desktop) would be a solution since I do need to move tabs/windows around fairly often as well.

Is there a way to do that with some settings?

Hello,

Is there any way of customising the menus (such as context/right-click menus)so that they do not display any kind of icons?

For example the burger menu has icons for "Print" and other items.

This is inconsistent with my desktop environment (GNOME) and all of my other desktop apps (which follow the default GTK settings that disable such icons)

Another minor thing is underlining certain characters in those menus (for keyboard shortcuts, I think), for some of the items. This is another inconsistency which is also disabled system-wide by default in GNOME.

Is there some way of disabling these? Maybe an about:settings config that I didn't find yet?

Hello dear community,

I recently switched to a dual boot system and got Ubuntu 20.04.1. If I want to watch Netflix for example I cannot because of DRM settings (at least the pop-up of Firefox says so). Other video and audio content is working fine so far. The guidelines on what to do to solve the problem like this

Recently accessing shows on cbs.com fails with an error 113 that they can not show ads?? Have disabled adblocker on site before, but still get it. Even disabled the adblocker altogether and get the same thing. Tried all the things about clearing cookies and cache, but nothing fixes problem. Can copy link, and in Google Chrome I get an error 1106 the first time, but then do a refresh, and it works fine and plays show just fine. So, not sure why I'm getting the 113 error with firefox? Don't know if a recent upgrade to firefox changed something, or if something changed with cbs.com that it doesn't play the add. The ads on the google chrome where from boh.com, but tried adding that to whitelist, and still got the 113 error. But then even with adblocker completely disabled it did the same.

trying to recognize FF as default on Fedora 33

Step to Reproduce: 1. Start the browser. You can do so directly or by opening a file that starts FF.

Actuality:

This alert appears: "Default Browser" in title bar, in body "Firefox is not currently set as your default browser. Would you like to make it your default browser?" (with "Always perform this check when starting Firefox." precheckmarked)) with buttons "Not now" (nondefault button) and "Use Firefox as my default browser" (default button). I click the default button but the problem repeats next time anyway.

FF is always my default browser. My preference is already set for it to be the default (FF > hamburger menu > Preferences > General > Startup > Always Check if Firefox is Your Default Browser is already checkmarked), my distro (Fedora 33 > Gnome 3.38.3 > Settings app > Default Applications > Web) has it as the default, ctrl-clicking a linked URL in LibreOffice Writer opens FF with that URL in the address bar, and I always approve the alert to make it my default. It still asks.

FF was my default browser. It came with Fedora 32 and I kept Fedora evergreen so that now it's F33 and still evergreen. Recently, I removed and reinstalled FF, via Fedora's Software app for both steps and setting largely the same prefs as before.

Applying https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/make-firefox-your-default-browser and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/setting-firefox-default-browser-does-not-work didn't solve it. FF > hamburger menu > Preferences > General > Startup > Always Check if Firefox is Your Default Browser is checkmarked, but exiting and restarting FF doesn't solve it. Under that, it continuously says "Firefox is not your default browser". Clicking the "Make Default…" button changes the button's shade but no dialog appears (although that's what "…" portends) and nothing else happens. Uncheckmarking the option and clicking the button recheckmarks the option, but still nothing happpens. I have Chromium 88.0.4324.150 (Developer Build) Fedora Project (64-bit) and Tor 10.0.8 but neither one is the default browser (Chromium upon starting says on the initial screen it isn't and Tor says it isn't in about:preferences) and I use them less, Favorites bar > Show Applications > "browser" (without quote marks) doesn't bring up any other browsers, and I don't think I have any other browsers on the laptop.

This happpens consistently. I don't remember when it began, but not long ago.

Possibly relevant: https://github.com/xhorak/firefox-devedition-flatpak/issues/77

Expectation: If consistent with the pref, recognize that FF is the default.

What should I try next?

This is on fIrefox version 85 in Linux.

Last week I was discouraged to find out that my cache was taking up 2 GB of space, some YEARS old. So I decided to purge it and then keep it clean.

The cache gets stored in two places: the linux home .cache folder AND the firefox profile's cache2 folder.

To keep things REALLY clean I checked the "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" checkbox, then manually enter the exceptions for web sites I do not want to block. Then I specifically added sites I really despise (google, for example) to the block list.

The data still gets cached, even after closing and reopening the browser the cache is still there (verified both via about:cache and by just looking in the folders).

Even when I purge the cache completely, verify nothing is there (about:cache) after deleting the cache folders from the hard drive, it keeps coming back, like a bad computer virus.

My interim solution is a crontab that runs every hour to clear old cache, but that seems silly. Do these security settings actually do anything? What am I doing wrong?

I am using Firefox with Default Search Engine set to Duck Duck Go. I seem to be unable to connect to duckduckgo.com be it either through typing my search in the address bar or duckduckgo.com. All I get is: "Hmm. We’re having trouble finding that site." Internet connection seems fine (no trouble connecting to other sites). Sometimes clearing "Cached Web Content" helps but it is troublesome to clear cache after each browser restart. How can I get the Duck to work with the Fox?
