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

uBlock origin (possibly other addons) installs but does not work - Firefox 68.8.0ESR on Debian 10

I'm running a brand new install of Debian. Initially the install comes with Firefox version 68.7.0 ESR. After setting up my Firefox preferences, I tried installing uBlock origin. The install seemed to go fine, but I noticed that the uBlock button does not appear to the right of the address bar by the bookmarks/sidebars/firefox account buttons. I went on Youtube to check to see if it was actually blocking ads and it is not blocking. When I open the addons page to check if it is there (Tools > Addons) it shows uBlock origin as an enabled addon.

I opened synaptic to see if there is an upgrade version available and saw that there was (Version 68.8.0 ESR). I went ahead and installed the upgrade, but there is no improvement, still seeing ads on Youtube. I removed it and reinstalled, but also no improvement. I've been searching google for answers but other than references to the issues last year with addons being broken I am not finding anything helpful.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Your help is appreciated.

This is a problem connected with SCROLLING. There are three standard ways of scrolling , while surfing and looking through site pages: 1. Use the Mouse roller 2. Use the left click press on the mouse, simultaneously press and move the scroll bar 3. There are two Scroll bar junctions - one at top and other at base. The mouse left click button may be clicked - either in steps or on a continued click... to make the page move ... in steps or on a continuous movement.

The QUESTION here is: While we have this Last No.3 above facility in UBUNTU-Mate, such facility is not seen in UBUNTU, XUBUNTU, LUBUNTU, KUBUNTU etc. WHY?

Can we not have the same facility in the other OS too?

this pc used to be a linux ubuntu one. was synced using firefox on the previous operating system. now I'm logged in using Mint. want to find out how I can get back all the windows with their tabs open on Mint?


I'm signed in and synced here so why am I constantly being asked to sign in again and again?

is there a way to chat/connect directly with Mozilla and/or Firefox support?

Good day,

Using Firefox for normal web browsing is not a problem. However, when playing video (YouTube, Twitch.tv etc) I get this Decoder error under Syslog.

firefox_firefox.desktop[36209]: [Child 36209, MediaDecoderStateMachine #3] WARNING: Decoder=7f73b74d4400 Decode error: NS_ERROR_DOM_MEDIA_FATAL_ERR (0x806e0005) - RefPtr<MediaSourceTrackDemuxer::SamplesPromise> mozilla::MediaSourceTrackDemuxer::DoGetSamples(int32_t): manager is detached.: file /builds/worker/checkouts/gecko/dom/media/MediaDecoderStateMachine.cpp, line 3367

The crashes are random. I can play video for varying lengths of time. But the above Error keeps appearing. All packages are up to date.

Thanks.

Hi, I've broken my profile which has led to several terrible effects. I suspect that this happened because I enabled Marionette in my default profile (and experimented little bit with it), although I also installed few extensions in the meantime all of them I've already deleted (Midnight Lizard and couple of auto refreshers). I don't know if I should list everything that got broken in one question, but let's begin with this one: I can't select topic for this question on my default profile (other profile is OK), because if I click no drop-down list appears. I don't see any errors in console.

the other problems are

  1. browser.newtabpage.activity-stream.feeds.topsites was set false (changed it back to true).
  2. I can't access about:preferences through Edit menu (nothing happens).
  3. FF starts with empty window and the window I used before is in the 'Recently closed windows' list, despite I closed it last. I don't know how to make Firefox restart with that window.
  4. When I attempted to open URL in Firefox from external application (for example by running 'firefox url' in console) Firefox's window used to pop up (go to the foreground before all other windows on the screen) with URL opened in a new tab. Now Firefox's window remains in background. I've changed nothing in my window manager's settings (Fluxbox is my WM) and I suggest it's also up to some changes in my profile... Also this happens with any active profile, all other issues listed only related to default profile.

I have installed new version of Firefox, but problems remained, so I believe they're up to broken profile data....
