I'm running Linux Ubuntu 20.4

Whenever I try to use a website that has a browse button (e.g. youtube uploader, google drive, etc) I click it but nothing happens, no file browser comes up.

As per previous discussions on this issue, I have tried Safe mode, refresh (in fact total new operating system and re-install of firefox) and disabling hardware acceleration, even turning off popup blocker and none of these have made any difference.

I'm running version v92.0 (64) on ubuntu 21.04. Firefox would crash upon opening when signed in. It would stay active enough for me to disable the extensions & themes. After doing that it still crashed. I tried going into Troubleshooting mode and it would still crash. I went into Troubleshooting mode and did a refresh. It was still crashing. Finally I signed out of my mozilla sync account and the browser has stayed active long enough for me to type this report.

I've submitted all crash reports in about:crashes, and I'm not really sure what to do next.

Perhaps a local version of the Mozilla Sync profile has been corrupted? if so, is there a way to remove it and pull down the "sync"ed version from Mozilla's servers? What if the version on Mozilla's server's has been corrupted? should I back up the local profile (wherever it is) before removing?

I hope I've given enough information. Please let me know if you need further, more specific information.

Hello,

what can i do when i get a message "Sorry. We just need to do one small thing to keep going." with <Restart Firefox> or "Gah. Your tab just crashed." all the time i open firefox? A restart with Add-Ons disabled does not help. I send the troubleshooting information from Help/Troubleshooting information. As one can see Firefox does not seem to produce crash reports either.

I've been having major problems with cursor control by mouse wheel and keyboard on the Ubuntu install. I've improved it by alterations in about:config, but it's still not right.

I have this install on Windoze Vista that works perfectly, through no fault of my own, just as installed.

Can I simply copy the file from the Windows Vista install to the Ubuntu install to fix it?

If so, what is the file name (about:config ?), and where is it located?

Thanks!

I'm getting big confusion in 46.0.1 in Ubuntu (NOT the system I'm on right now. Scrolling is inconsistent and frustrating.

=======

MOUSE WHEEL SCROLLING - I've got scrolling by mouse wheel working as I want it on normal pages like Facebook, Google result pages, etc. (one rotation click = one page)

However, in, for lack of a better name, "list" pages, like my webmail AOL pages or the about:config pages, the scrolling is too short. On the webmail page, it's two display lines only. On about:config, it's three lines.

i want everything at one full page.

==

The keyboard keys are much more goofy.

ARROW KEYS

- - Facebook, etc. - As I want them at 3 lines
- -"List" pages - OK at one line at a time

=

PAGE UP / DOWN

- - fine at one page on Facebook, Google results, etc.
- -"List" pages - First key press (either one) gets me zero or one line, depending on what test page I'm using. Second gets about one page, third = 1 page, Fourth = zero to one line, fifth = one page, sixth = 1 page, seventh = 1 line, and so on.

"Page Up / Down" should get one full page every time, either direction.

- - On the "List" pages only, on the times when full page movement happens, it moves about the full page, and then sometimes jumps another couple lines or so down. - - Also, page up / down won't work multiple times (repeat) when it's held down for several pages worth. Maybe keyboard repeat is out pacing FireFox and confusing it?

How can I exorcise the spooks from this ?!?

Thanks!

I've created a website in php5. During development I used Firefox 46.0.1 on Ubuntu 14.04LTS. The session variables are nicely stored en can be read.

Now I'm starting to test on different browsers, my Windows 10 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 doesn't store the session variables. Chrome and Edge do store the session variables on my Windows 10 pc. Also on a win 8.1 pc with Firefox 46.0.1 the session variables are not stored.

Any idea what could be the cause?

What I typically do in a php script:

?>

In order to reload the page, I use javascript. "location.reload();" When commenting that line out and refresh the page, the session variables are available.

Any idea on how to solve this issue?

Hi there,

This issue reports to a desktop computer with 8 CPUs and 24 Gb of RAM, which pretty much puts aside any resource constraints. Ever since Firefox was updated to version 49 the browsing experience has become increasingly difficult with a relevant lag on pretty much every task: . opening a new tab . loading/reloading a web page . scrolling down a web page . entering text (takes almost 1 second for a character to appear) . deleting text . using menus (e.g. takes about 1 second for the context menu highlight to move up/down to the next item) . great reduction in frame rate when playing videos (actually, I no longer play video on Firefox 49)

I have tried various things to stop the lagging: . restart Firefox . disable/uninstall extensions (now down to just 4) . disable/uninstall plugins (now down to just 3) . update plugins

But the lagging prevails.

I use pretty much the same web pages as I did with previous Firefox versions, but only with version 49 am I experience this lagging.

Thank you.

How do I make the toolbars smaller? Since upgrading to the latest version, they are twice as tall as they used to be. The text in them is still a reasonable size but the toolbars take up twice the vertical space they used to. This has nothing to do with the size of the page I'm viewing so Ctrl+ or Ctgrl- has no effect.

Thanks for any help. Attached is a screen shot showing the wasted space at the top of my screen with the new toolbars.

So I am not completely nubcakes, so i have ran apt to get update builds and build-trees. Still doesn't fix things. It mostly crashes with Facebook and Youtube. But that is mostly what I use FF for. It has even crashed repeatedly on just about:restoresession. I think it is a video problem. I have ubuntu 16.04 LTS but everything is up to date. Doesn't matter what is loaded or not, see about crashing just on restore session with a single tab!

The problem still happens in safe-mode, so there is that checked out. The reports don't appear to have much in common.

Thanks,

These are the crash reports just from the last month:
