Windows 10. Have used Firefox for years with no problem. Out of the blue, when Firefox is invoked, it comes up, but the screen dims after a few seconds, an the hourglass appears and Firefox freezes at that point. I have to use Task Manager to close it. I tried uninstall and that failed. Then I manually deleted the Firexfox program files. When I tried to install the program from Firefox, that failed as well with a window that pops and says there was a problem. Then the install window freezes (!) and again I have to resort to Task Manager to stop the program. What to do to get Firefox running again? Thanks. Bob Ochsman ochsman@gmail.com

Bookmarks dropdowns going past Windows toolbar

My Problem: When I open any Dropdown for my Favorites (including the Bookmarks arrow on the left) it leaks past the Firefox Window and behind my Windows toolbar (When Using DisplayFusion only, more on that later). Some items then become unreachable: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-08-17-53-5a6e2c.png

This does not happen with the settings dropdown. It correctly stops at the toolbar: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-07-57-17-2e5d8a.png

What would fix the problem:

  • The behaviour of the Favorites dropdowns should be the same as the Settings one in my opinion.
  • I would be fine with dropdowns staying inside the Firefox Window at all time.

Note on the cause of the problem: Using the default Windows ToolBar makes the dropdown go OVER the ToolBar: https://assets-prod.sumo.prod.webservices.mozgcp.net/media/uploads/images/2024-06-15-08-17-14-bc7e78.png

However, I am using a software called DisplayFusion that overrides Windows ToolBar for extra features and customization. The dropdown goes behind DisplayFusion's toolbars. I will also ask the devs on their side for a solution but I still think the dropdowns behaviours between Settings and Bookmarks on Firefox should be the same.

Thanks!

Firefox visiting a page without tab or window open

Hi folks,

I run a server which is ONLY accessible from my own IP address. I have a particular script on that server which deletes certain log and temporary data files at the end of a job run. I have a problem where those files being deleted WITHOUT me visiting the page !!

Somehow Firefox appears to be randomly visiting that page all on it's own, without a window or tab open which is then deleting the files at the wrong times without me doing anything.

I have put some tracking in the script and the http request is DEFINITELY coming from my IP.

The user agent is being reported as: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64; rv:109.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/115.0

The page address is not being recorded in my browsing history.

How is this happening ? I only have 2 extensions installed: Tab Reloader and UBlock Origin.

Is there a way to track ALL activity that Firefox is doing so I can trace where this is coming from please ?

I'll point out that to my knowledge, this is ONLY happening on this specific page on my own server and not anywhere else that I am aware of. All my other scripts on that server have tracking as well, but none of them have been randomly run.

I need to track this down as right this moment I have the original script renamed and I'm having to use £%~£%&{ chrome to run it as I cannot trust FF NOT to run it !!!!

Any help would be appreciated.

All downloads on firefox open as "file://" links

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?

Greetings,

I'm a user of Mozilla, it's my main browser. I use it for everything and especially for Youtube. But, recently, some changes have appeared and not for better. I don't know why or if it's only me. The thing is Youtube is not like the real site but something else and so i lose options or settings. I don't have anymore the mutiple screen size options. There's a button that says "watch this on Youtube" while i'm litteraly on Youtube.. And now i want to watch a video with a age restriction and it'tells me i have to be connected to Youtube while i'm connected.

Can someone answer me about this or make it noticed by Mozilla employees ?

Thanks

The behavior began with fifteen to twenty crash messages appearing. After which the browser would stop responding and be unable to reach out to the internet.

Network connectivity was confirmed as I was able to access my VPN and corporate teams.

I submitted as many crash reports as I could. Eventually the crash reporter ceased to function. The message is:

Firefox had a problem and crashed. Unfortunately, the crash reporter is unable to submit a report for this crash.

Details: expected value at line 1 column 1

Only a full reboot of the machine restored functionality but only temporarily. It returns after being put into sleep mode.

Running firefox in safe mode does not restore functionality. The behavior persists.

I am fully up to date according to firefox.

I am running a Lenovo Thinkpad Windows 11.

Hi there,

I'd like to know if there is a way to remove firefox relay from the context menu, as per screenshot. I really like the relay icon on the email fields, but I don't want it to show on the context menu and I found no such option on the relay extension. Is there a solution to this?

Thank you

Changing from Windows to Mac - Is FF Profile Compatible

My Windows 10 Pro laptop computer crashed a couple of days ago and no longer works. I am considering replacing it with a new Macbook Air. My files are backed up with Carbonite. Will I be able to get my saved passwords back by restoring my Firefox profile to the proper folder on the Mac? (I already know that Carbonite's backup program will not do a "file restore" between Mac and Windows; I will likely be paying Carbonite an extra $100 so they can put my files on an external drive and ship i to me.) | (I have a lot of the passwords saved in Safari on my iPhone and old iPad mini 2, but there are some I did not want to save on the mobile devices. They are also not on the much older Windows laptop I am currently using. Therefore, I cannot access certain sites right now unless I am willing to change the passwords.)

Thank you.

This has occurred recently after I had a very short power outage. Firefox has been acting weird ever since.
