For another data point: I have had what seems to be a similar "disappearing text" issue in Thunderbird for the past week or two. I've never seen it before that time. To replicate: Start Thunderbird 45.2.0 and create new message. Select some text. Click the "italic" icon OR hit Ctrl-I The selected text disappears (as does the space between the preceding ...

In order to make a desktop notification appear put this code into a file whose extension you should put as .html, then run it using Firefox.

This is a hardware problem. Choose the RAM test (memtest86+) from the GRUB boot menu. Run the test to determine if you have a bad stick of RAM. If you have multiple sticks and are having trouble determining which is to blame based on the failing address, test one stick at a time. If the RAM passes check smart status of the drive as shown here If that ...

With Mozilla/firefox closed, run the following command: sudo pipelight-plugin --create-mozilla-plugins Open Mozilla and check about:plugins: it should now be listed. You will probably have to do this every time the plugins are updated.

A virtual package allows for a common name to be depended upon by other packages even though several things might provide that service/function. There's more than one way in the package archive to install Adobe Flash and each package causes the virtual package to appear as installed. Another example of such is ubuntu-default-settings. In a different tool ...

It looks to me like you were trying to install the 12.10 Quantal version. That release has been EOL for a very long time now. If you want the Adobe flash plugin for Ubuntu MATE 16.04, the easiest way to do it is: sudo apt update sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-addons

You generated lots of data and we haven't derived much information. You've probably spent more time googling the scarier looking things in dmesg than I have and discovered no one noticed anything. If you're still willing to persevere, here is something a little less haystack. Hypothesis: If there is a hardware problem, it should manifest itself with the ...

The Firefox add-on RefControl allows you to set a global Referer behaviour, which can be overwritten for specific domains. The behaviours are: Normal (like Firefox works by default) Block (send no Referer at all) Replace (sends the root address of the current domain as Referer) Specific (allows you to define a string yourself which should be sent as ...

In the URL bar of Firefox, go to about:config. In the search box of the about:config page, enter the following: Network.http.sendRefererHeader Double click on Network.http.sendRefererHeader and change the value from 2 to 0 to disable the referrer header. The following values are accepted: 0 – Disable referrer. 1 – Send the Referer header when ...

There are Firefox Addons that can accomplish this. They tend to make it easy to toggle on/off sending the referrer header, and do not require manual modification of Firefox's configuration. For example, Smart Referer: Send referers only when staying on the same domain. You can whitelist domains with wildcards and configure other things, look in ...

I got it. The setting that needed to be altered is found under: System Settings> Application Style> GNOME Application Style (GTK) I needed to increase the font size from 10 to 12 to match the font size i chose under: System Settings> Font> Fonts Here is the effect before and after: Firefox is using font 10 and Opera is font 12.

Firefox can be easily reset to defaults after injudicious alterations in about:config by following these steps: Close Firefox completely Open the folder ~/.mozilla/firefox/< Profile Name >/, the < Profile Name > folder will most usually be named something like this: Within that folder rename the file prefs.js to prefs.js_bak by right ...

The problems usually lie with mime type and default handlers. Firstly, have you changed Firefox's about:config settings? ie: network.protocol-handler.expose.magnet -> false and reset other options as per this Firefox deluge Q&A. Have you set up rTorrent to watch any particular directory? FILE: ~/.rtorrent.rc # Maximum and minimum number of ...

The issue might be with those programs themselves having a font override. I know within Firefox there are font options and sizes you can change that aren't controlled by the system unless high contrast colors are used. For Firefox it's found under Preferences> Content and going into "advanced" within that page will allow further tweaking. Not sure if it's ...

I know this is an old question but I came across it when looking for an answer to a similar problem, tiny font sizes in browser tabs and in program menus.

What's happening in dmesg output when the crash happens? Did you run a memory test overnight? The long multi hour UEFI system diagnostics? Can you run strace -f -o /tmp/out.log -p (all the chrome/ffox/tbird pids) and post that somewhere? That's gonna be a big file.

sudo apt-get remove firefox just uninstalls Firefox. sudo apt-get purge firefox also deletes configuration files. sudo apt-get autoremove removes packages that were automatically installed to satisfy dependencies for some package and that are no longer needed.

Thanks to Karsus I was able to track down the information I needed!!! I found that if you install PAVUCONTROL you can pinpoint applications and see/control what sound output devices they think they should be using. I had to manually set my browsers to use my headset for output. Sweet! Thank you Karsus.

I found out that most of the time and by default if not configured otherwise Firefox uses legacy security databases (cert8.db, key3.db, and secmod.db) that means you will need to use a different command line to inject the certificate into the correct database that Firefox use. (see more from the man of certutil) so if your system uses the default data base ...

I followed the steps, but my Ubuntu 14.04 would not want to do the install pipelight. I then switched the /etc/ubuntu/source.list to use us.archive.ubuntu.com and after that all went smooth. Maybe it helps someone else to avoid a lot of headaches.. See this question on Ask Ubuntu for further reference.

It seems I inadvertently solved my own problem by making a hard copy of the plugin--which deleted the reference to the old one in pluginreg.dat. On an impulse, I went back and deleted the copy and reinstated the symlink and voila it now works. This is all voodoo as far as I'm concerned and I still think there's a bug in how firefox is detecting and doing ...

There are several settings for PDFs in Firefox - for different MIME content types - see the screenshot.

This isn't currently possible, FireFox has no vaapi support (as far as I know). If it did you would have to install the h.264ify plugin to watch YouTube, because there is no hardware support for vp9 (the codec that YouTube uses) decoding.
