Unattended software (kiosk) here.

Sometimes (so rarely that I cannot reproduce in dev) the client sees this error screen: "Firefox closed unexpectedly while starting..." (see image in attachment)

Sometimes when rebooting the error goes away and Firefox starts normally.

Sometimes even when rebooting the system - this vertical error screen appears, and one solution is to reinstall Firefox, but I'd like not to (if not necessary) or at least programmatically detect the issue and perform the needed actions.

QUESTIONS: How to programmatically detect (bash i.e.) that this error window is present and get rid of it properly? Or, how to (for debugging) force that screen to appear (to force that broken state)?

PS: I'm running Firefox using:

nohup firefox -P ff_custom_profile -new-instance -private-window -kiosk "$url" > /dev/null 2>&1 &

Thank you for any assistance or insight

I have recently been getting an error message when I open Firefox saying "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem". This has been happening since I clicked on a mail in Mail to unsubscribe from a spam/phishing mail list, which seemed to result in me installing Firefox Private Browsing, which I had never subscribed to. I have tried uninstalling Private Browsing but there is no way of doing that. I have even uninstalled and then re-installed Firefox completely but I still have the same problem. Because of the problem I have now lost all my bookmarks and history, and am unable to create new bookmarks and history. I have been on the help forums and seen that I can Disable Private Browsing by going through my anti-virus (Avast), which I have not yet tried because what I would really like to achieve is uninstalling and not having Private Browsing on my Start menu, rather than simply disabling it. Anyway, would disabling it solve the bookmarks and history problem ? Can anyone give me the solution ? Thanks. As you may gather, I am not very techno so you would have to give me the idiot's version of any instructions or advice.

I often run into issues with PDFs in Firefox Linux. They either appear totally blank (typically after suspend/restore), or they appear with the desktop background showing through (as in the attached screenshot).

Hard refreshing the page doesn't change anything, opening a new tab and opening the PDF again doesn't change anything, opening a new window and loading the PDF doesn't change anything.

The screenshot is with this PDF: https://www.sgsw.ch/home/strom/_jcr_content/Par/sgsw_accordion_list_1838160259/AccordionListPar/sgsw_accordion_12353/AccordionPar/sgsw_downloadlist/DownloadListPar/sgsw_download_1049323524.ocFile/2023-08-31%20Mitteilung%20Elcom%20Erh%C3%B6hung%20Elektrizit%C3%A4tspreise%20f%C3%BCr%20das%20Jahr%202024.pdf

It renders correctly in Chromium.

Dear Firefox Support,

I am writing to report an issue I am experiencing with Firefox Stable (v.126.0) when attempting to access the URL https://ibb.co. This URL is supposed to redirect to https://imgbb.com, but instead, I encounter the following error:

Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to ibb.co. PR_CONNECT_RESET_ERROR

This issue seems specific to Firefox Stable, as I am able to access the URL without any problems on chromium-based browsers (Chrome and Arc) and Safari. Additionally, the URL works correctly on Firefox Nightly (v.128.0a1).

I have attempted several troubleshooting steps, including:

   Disabling all extensions
   Using private browsing mode
   Clearing cookies and cache
   Restoring settings to default

Unfortunately, none of these methods have resolved the issue.

Could you please assist me in resolving this problem? Any guidance or further troubleshooting steps would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your support.

I am running a Mac Mini with the M1 chip. I recently updated the OS to Sonoma (14.5) from Monterey and find that the type on Linked In is tiny, only about 7 pt. My FF is 126.0. My minimum font size on Firefox is set to 14 pt. If I make it larger, like 20, Linked In is readable, but all my other sites are too large and hard to navigate.

Your automatic reader thinks I'm running 10.5. I've never run 10.5 on this Mac.

LI says it is a Firefox problem, which it is, because the site reads fine on Safari.

I know that there are sites which don't work on Firefox, like Chase Bank, which is a drag. Please don't tell me that LI is another one.

Somebody, please help.

Good afternoon,

I am not sure if the topic is the right one I choose.

My question/complaint: recently websites, although mostly websites from my bookmarks, seem not available or existing. Mostly after a few minutes and a new trial, the website comes back as if nothing was wrong. Could it be the last update from Firefox? I never had these "problems" (a big word for minor inconveniences) before and I use Firefox at least during the last 15 years.

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Best regards, Rien de Vos
