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!

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!

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?

The settings/privacy/close private tabs doesn’t seem to exist in the setttings any longer. Did it move? Am I missing something? Reopening private tabs again and again sort of may push me out of Firefox on iOS altogether.

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 have 2 soundcards on my iMac, (OS Ventura 13.6.1) : one internal (iMac) and one for music production. (universal audio)

Until the latest update (127), I could select either one and I could hear the audio from Firefox. But... since the update, only the internal iMac audio card is working. Note that I don't have this problem with Safari nor Chrome and it used to work on Firefox until the last update.

Anyone has noticed that? 

Does anyone knows how to contact them and log this as a new bug?

Thanks all!  :)

Issue Summary: When using a maximized Firefox window with the Windows taskbar set to automatically hide, the taskbar sometimes fails to appear when moving the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen.

Steps to Reproduce:

  • Set the Windows taskbar to automatically hide.
  • Maximize the Firefox window.
  • Use Firefox normally and intermittently move the mouse cursor to the bottom of the screen.

Expected Behavior: The Windows taskbar should appear when the mouse cursor is moved to the bottom of the screen.

Actual Behavior: The taskbar does not appear consistently when the mouse cursor is moved to the bottom of the screen. This issue is specific to Firefox and occurs frequently, though not every time. The taskbar functions normally with other applications.

System Information:

  • Windows Version: Windows 10 Pro 22H2 x64
  • Firefox Version: Firefox 127.0 (but happens at least since 126.0)

Additional Notes:

  • The issue has been occurring for several weeks.
  • No specific pattern has been identified regarding when the taskbar fails to appear.
  • This issue significantly impacts the user experience as it disrupts workflow and navigation.

Steps Taken to Resolve:

  • Checked for and installed the latest Firefox updates.
  • Restarted Firefox and the computer.
  • Verified that the taskbar behaves normally with other applications.

Request: Please investigate and address this issue in a future update. Any guidance or interim solutions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.

Having Firefox open reduces all download speeds, upload unaffected

I have the strangest problem. If Firefox is closed and I do a speedtest in another browser, download a file, or do other internet activity I'm getting about 200-250Mbps d/l and 100Mbps upload. As soon as I open Firefox, whether I load a page or not, the upload speed stays the same, however the download speed drops to about 25-50 Mbps. This only happens on one PC, the upload isn't affected, and resolves itself as soon as Firefox is closed. Here's what I have done without any change in this behaviour;

  • Rebooted
  • ipconfig /release /renew /flushdns
  • Removed and reinstalled the network adapter
  • Enabled, disabled windows auto tuning and tested (slower disabled)
  • Updated Windows
  • Refreshed Firefox
  • Uninstalled Firefox, deleted remaining folders from Appdata (Local, Low, Roaming) as well as the program file directories and "Mozilla" registry entries. Restarted and reinstalled. Issue immediately resumed when Firefox was open.

Also when connected to a VPN Firefox download speed increases to about 60Mbps and is consistent across other software. If I split tunnel another browser outside the VPN, it is still stuck at 60Mbps. If I close Firefox the speed increases.

This makes absolutely no sense to me, so I'm hoping someone can shed some light on this - but it does seem to be something Firefox is doing.

Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

However, today, when I try to edit a shortcut link, I do not get the 3 dots menu by right clicking on a shortcut tile.

Is this a recent change, a bug, an issue with my installation (which has been stable for many years)?

How can I get back the functionality back?

I am using Firefox 127.0 (64 bit) on Windows (Windows 11, all up to date).
