I'm trying to identify why the GPU RAM is reported as 0 in the report when an expected value should be greater than 0. If the browser is actually treating the GPU as having zero RAM it might be a starting point to investigate why the browser is unresponsive for sometimes up to 30 second when 42 tabs are open and I'm opening a new tab and trying to interact with an existing tab after switching between tabs or windows. Often these are divided between two or three windows grouping tabs as part of a multi monitor workflow while editing Wiki content. The system responsiveness is unaffected and other program do not change in their responsiveness. This occurs while CPU is under load and not under load, but occurs more frequently when under cpu load (low priority compute applications via BOINC for distributed computing). No GPU compute is being used.

Firefox was installed via the Pop!_OS Pop!_Shop. Confusingly the Pop!_Shop lists two Firefox Browsers (one by Mozilla, and one by the Mozilla Corporation) I'm told that these are separate due to their app IDs not matching which prevents the listings from being merged, but it is unclear which is sourced from what repository and how they differ for install as flatpak, deb, etc are not specified in the UI of the Pop!_Shop.

Whenever I use Firefox 109.0 (on Ubuntu 22.04) to transfer money between savings and checking in my online banking account, I get a window pop-up that says "No Apps Available". This is something going on my bank's servers and shouldn't require Firefox or any local helper apps on my end to do anything. I will post the window that pops up. Has anyone else encountered this? And is there a way to disable these pop-up?

Hello!

Whenever I join a conference/meeting, web version of Teams asks for camera and microphone in one window, e. g. "Allow camera and microphone? yes/no". I can, of course, press No, then press "Yes, continue without audio" in Teams, and then allow microphone, but that's really annoying.

Is it possible for firefox to ask it in two separate dialog window? 1. Do you want to grant Teams access to microphone? - yes 2. Do you want to grant Teams access to camera? - no

I recently updated my system (OpenSuse15.4) which included a Firefox update to version 109.0.

I regularly use my mic for google voice, however even though I can select my microphone in Google voice, It never shows any input.

I tested my mic in other apps and it works fine. When I pull up my systems pulse audio volume control (pavucontrol), it does not show firefox in the recording tab like it used to when using Google Voice.

To test to see if it was a Google Voice error, I also tried testing my mic at https://mictests.com/, and zoom.com, but after selecting my desired input device, mictests.com was also unable to record anything, and again, pavucontrol did not show anything being recorded.

I have attached an image of pavucontrol that shows audacity recording audio. Normally, I would also see Firefox in this window when using the mic.

On my computer, I run Mageia Cauldron with a GNOME environment. After a recent update of my system, both Firefox and Thunderbird have stopped working. They crash constantly when I try to launch either of them. In both cases, when I try to launch them from the command line, I get the following message: ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overridden by environment. ATTENTION: default value of option mesa_glthread overridden by environment. Segmentation fault (core dumped)

For basic info, my system is: OS: Linux Mageia Cauldron Environment: GNOME Shell 43.1 Display server: X11 Kernel: 6.1.8-desktop-1.mga9 x86_64 Firefox: 102.7.0esr Thunderbird: 102.6.1

Looking around, it seems to be a bug with Firefox and Thunderbird, but besides waiting for a new update that might fix itself, I wonder if there is something I can do to make them work now.

Thank you.

I'm using Ubuntu 22.04.1/Wayland and FireFox Snap for Ubuntu 109.0 and I have two monitor bigger and smaller. After some time of using Firefox it's hang or something like that. When it happens I can normally open pages and use firefox except I can't move tab, resize window and when I move firefox from one monitor to second then it fit to half of screen (when move from smaller monitor to bigger) or window is behind monitor (when move FF from bigger monitor to smaller, you can see on screenshot what I mean). When I close FF and open everything works fine.

My primary desktop is mate/compiz on Fedora 36. I typically have 6 Workspaces available, 4 dedicated to specific apps (eg. Firefox runs in WS#2, several terminal sessions in WS#1).

In a terminal window, when I right-click a web URL I get an action menu including an entry "Open Link". Recently the behavior resulting when I select that menu item has changed.

Prior, Desired Behavior: My current workspace switches to that containing Firefox, Firefox receives focus and the URL is opened in a new tab.

New, Undesired Behavior: Firefox is moved from its workspace to my current workspace and the URL is opened in a new tab. I must return Firefox to its "assigned" workspace.

Experimenting suggests the behavior change is due to something in the profile used by Firefox though I'm unable to identify it.

Other browsers (brave, chrome, firefox from mozilla.org rather than from the fedora package repo) do not exhibit the new behavior. Firefox on other systems (some Fedora/mate/compiz, others varying) do not exhibit the new behavior.

Firefox (from Fedora repos) with all addons (only 7) disabled continues to exhibit the new behavior.

A new Firefox update today (to 109.0) continues to exhibit the new, undesired behavior.

As noted above, Firefox from mozilla.org, does not exhibit the new, undesired behavior. But that is with a new profile. If it is started with the profile of the Fedora Firefox, it DOES exhibit the undesired behavior.

Can someone suggest a setting or profile change to restore the old, desired behavior?

Tnx, Jon

Hi beloved community!

I've been experiencing problems with firefox on Ubuntu. Some (if not all) windows randomly bug out and I can instantly tell because:

1. Hover animations stop working completely, in-page and browser ones too (menu, tabs, etc) 2. Animations work if I scroll or click over any element 3. Browser window becomes unmovable, I can't drag the window, only by doing alt+space and selecting move 4. Top bar (URL, tabs, config buttons, minimize, restore, close buttons too) doesn't resize if I get out of full-screen

If I move tabs to a new window they work perfectly, until they don't anymore. It can be almost instantly or it may work perfectly for hours

At first I could ignore it but now it's just getting so annoying it's practically unusable

After downloading about 10 GiB of source code and then building another 15 GiB, to install Firefox you need to use `./mach install` or more correctly: alias install='sudo sh -c "export MOZBUILD_STATE_PATH=$HOME/.mozbuild; ./mach install"'

But to re-install Nightly Firefox on the freshly installed (even the same) OS I will have to either save 25 GiB of source+build (+.mozbuild and other stuff) or to redo everything from scratch (needs at least 1h 20m). I'm having a hard time understanding all the abstractions and redirections from `./mach install` (and Makefile from ./obj-*/ which is automatically generated) to reconstruct a minimal set of things to install Firefox.

I need a bundle of files+dirs which is enough to install everything system-wide for Firefox to work properly. Maybe even simply run `./mach install` in this "minimal build installation" (if possible).

P.S. I'm using Debian based distro(s).

I have an account on hidive.com and can not longer login with Firefox 109. Firefox 108 still works. I have tried 109 on both linux and Windows 10. I tried refreshing Firefox and disabled all addons. The page after clicking sign-in with my credentials just is a blank page and the source for said page is blank.
