The lag is very problematic to me, because I do most of my work using the browser. When the keyboard starts lagging I can only enter text using copy/paste with mouse (which works fine). The only way to solve it is to restart Firefox (which can result in lost work).

The lag, when it starts, is 10 seconds or more for each keystroke. It occurs about once every few days.

Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS

126.0.1 (64-bit) Mozilla Firefox Snap For Ubuntu Canonical-002 - 1.0

I don't use Wayland.

Setting accessibility.force_disabled to 1 did NOT help.

I frequently stumble upon websites with incredibly annoying looping images, with no option or method to disable the image changes. Reading information on websites with constantly changing images is difficult due the distraction.

It would be greatly appreciated if an option could be created to disable the continual image looping - perhaps an addition to the FF settings whereby an On/Off toggle could en/disable a context menu option to Pause / Disable image looping when the user right-clicks on an image. ... or, the browser itself automatically recognises image looping and the toggle simply allows FF to en/disable the looping.

Thanks.

The vast majority of the time, when I open a new tab, I want to go to a page I already visited. Unfortunately, I consistently have to press down arrow to get to what I'm looking for.

I already disabled any kind of search suggestion (settings screenshot attached), added the separate search field, but nothing I tried removed the "Search with DuckDuckGo" being the first suggestion. I pressed the down arrow so many times in my life because of this, I'm at a loss.

Am I missing something? Is there any way to get the history suggestions to be before ANY web search.

I am using firefox 126.0.1 (64-bit) version of firefox on a linux system (kernel 6.6). Firefox is closing the main window abruptly (or crashing).

Wanted to get information on the crash, but when I navigated to the about:crashes page, it return a page with title "invalid URL" and the page says "Hmm. That address doesn’t look right."

A while back the behavior of the ctrl+shift+t shortcut changed from reopening tab in the current window to reopening tab in the current window or reopening last closed window which for me and a lot of other people too made it worse. There's been a thread https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1421356 but it's been archived without a real solution. Is there now a way like a about:config toggle to bring back the old functionality? I really miss the old behavior.

Versions: Firefox: 127.0 (64-bit) Linux: Ubuntu 22.04.4 LTS

Description: After some time, and (under unknown conditions), the input delay will shoot way up. Like 20-30 seconds.

Strangely enough, this only applies to keyboard inputs. I can change my tab with my mouse, I can click on things, no issues there. But any keyboard interaction is hugely delayed.

This does not fix itself until I close my browser and restart it. Closing the browser is always broken here too, if I close the browser with the [X] exit button, I then need to kill the process because it just hangs. It blanks out the contents of each tab like it's preparing to close them, but it just doesn't ever complete the task without a manual kill.

CPU usage and memory usage are relatively low; significantly below my system's limits.

I've already tried this suggested fix, to no avail.

The frequency of this is only about once a week at most, usually once a month, so it's not a huge issue, but I'm just worried about this occurring during a critical meeting or something later. Having this impending restart needed is kind of worrying for critical usage times.

I am currently using Ubuntu 24.04. I recently switched from the snap ubuntu package to using the firefox APT package. However, I've noticed this really weird issue. Whenever I download a file, it always seems to have the "file://" link or mime type.

Say for example I download an mp4 video, trying to open it via firefox results in a dialog asking me to "select which application i want to open this file link in"

I have tried refreshing firefox, and tried completely removing it from my operating system (a search of my entirety of / showed no traces of anything relating to firefox), but even after a clean install, the issue persisted.

The only way I found that can fix this issue is by using firefox nightly, or using the firefox flatpak. And I'd prefer to not use either.

I was monitoring the browser console, and upon clicking on the file in the downloads list, It seems that firefox gets this error:

Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: defaultButton is undefined

   _setInitialFocusIfNeeded chrome://global/content/elements/dialog.js:318
   _postLoadInit chrome://global/content/elements/dialog.js:332
   connectedCallback chrome://global/content/elements/dialog.js:149

dialog.js:318:9

This error does not occur on firefox nightly.

I believe I have troubleshooted this as much as possible on my end, and I'm unsure of what to do about this. Could I please get a bit of help?

Hi! After a routine update today to Mozilla Firefox 127.0 for Linux Mint, Firefox is asking for my master password before letting me continue. Sync does not appear to be enabled.

I'd really rather it didn't do this, because my password manager is now always open and accessible. Previously, the master password request was only triggered when I came on a site that needed a password.

Anything I can do to fix this?

Thanks for any pointers!

Sorry, not sure where to put it for the "topic".

Tried this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recover-user-data-missing-after-firefox-update

I see TWO profiles listed.

As the current one isn't what I want I try the second one "launch in new browser" - as said in the notes.

All that does is throw me back to the "welcome to Firefox" page.

No, it isn't the end of the world, but I had a few open windows/tabs. (By comparison to this machine which has A LOT of windows and tabs open)

They were useful/used/needed stuff.

It is a DIFFERENT MACHINE to this one. I haven't logged in here from the OTHER machine - may in the future if required/asked.

I'll try to leave well enough alone for now, but I do need that machine and this is a huge bump in the usual smooth flow of things.

BTW - just mentioning. MANY sites showed/suggested how to restore previous sessions but they all point to the HISTORY menu and then show RESTORE OLD SESSIONS.

Doesn't exist on either of my machines.

No data shared as this is NOT the machine with the problem.

I woke up this morning to my home directory having been remounted as read-only (it has its own dedicated hard drive at /dev/sdd1). I ran e2fsck and things looked good, so I restarted and things were fine again.

However, whenever I open Firefox, it hangs for about 1 full minute before it goes haywire and renders the entire system essentially unusable since being able to access my home directory is vital. The following is visible in dmesg:

All other programs that I use daily do not cause this issue. No clue what to do here. LibreWolf works fine - that's what I'm using now that Firefox breaks everything and basically forces me to restart if I want to use my computer normally.
