Phone conversation between me and a client:
CLIENT: "I see it weird..."
ME: "Which browser are you using?"
CLIENT: "The one you tech guys don't like"
ME: "Internet Explorer, isn't it?"
CLIENT: "Yeah, I'll switch to Firefox then."7
Although there's been a lot of rants on Firefox Quantum, I'm going to add my experience anyways.
Just downloaded it on my laptop and netbook.
Motherfucker this thing is fast. No lag, pages load very freaking fast, consumes less ram than before and I fucking love the new interface!
Mozilla, you did a hell of a job!28
To be honest: Firefox.
I use it every day since version 3. And a piece of software which has so much competitors and can withstand my urge to change is my winner5
*in a chat with a fellow devRanter who is aiming more and more towards privacy things*
*hmmm shall i tell him about my Firefox privacy addons... *
*nahh let's not get too intrusive*
3 minutes later
Him: hey bro, what Firefox addons do you have?
Step-dad : "Chrome is good"
Me : "Yeah but Firefox Quantum :/"
Step-dad : "That's a virus"
Thanks for @PonySlaystation for coming up with this idea!
Wrote my first ever Firefox extension. It loads a json list from a server containing domains which, according to the snowden leaks of 2013, are integrated within a US powered mass surveillance network.
If it finds any urls on the page being loaded, it puts a fullscreen red background with a warning text and the links which match the surveillance criteria.
There's no way to continue to the web page yet, will try to add that later on.31
If the Firefox Quantum is really good then you don't need to say:
"Chrome will become obsolete"
"I hope Chrome dies"
"Chrome's dead, long live Firefox"
to prove that it's a great browser. Fanboys always ruins nice experiences.14
Saw my uncle using Microsoft Edge today.
Me: Uncle, you should use Chrome or Firefox. They are better.
Uncle: Windows 10 showed a pop up few days back that chrome drains battery faster. So I uninstalled chrome.
Me: But Windows is fooling you to use its product. Edge is horrible and useless.
Uncle: So you think you are smarter than Windows people? Are they idiots who designed this whole software?
Microsoft u got 1 more Edge user. Enjoy, you lying and misleading company.28
Holy shit this UI/UX/Whatever looks good! Wish all apps could look this good. ++ to the Firefox App designers!16
I counted 42 rants about Firefox Quantum posted in the last 24 hours (of a total of 295)... are you ok, guys? 😅17
So my school forced everyone to buy a Chromebook G4 Education Edition which came with ChromeOS and we had to sign some shady e-policy. Days after I got it, I opened it up and manually reflashed the BIOS so I could use SeaBIOS and install Arch Linux.
Great, so I went on to instal Chrome and it was really slow and performance heavy, then I installed the new Firefox and it ran a lot faster...
*So hehe, Firefox works better than Chrome on a Chromebook!*10
To celebrate Quantum release, let's share your must have add-ons for your browser(s).
- ublock origin,
- error indicator
Screenshot and pocket are already included with Firefox and work great. Chrome needs extensions for those though. I used to have disconnect and ghostry in past.45
I used to use Firefox few years ago, but people around me called me fool and told me that Chrome was much better.
Now I use Chrome and you devRanters are making me feel like fool again.
Lesson Learnt: Stand straight on your decisions24
Google is not even hiding their efforts in controlling the internet and holding sites for ransom:
They will happily put a "badge of shame" on slow loading sites and I think this is just to force more sites to use AMP.
Fuck google. and I mean it. Firefox really is the last "FREE" browser available for us who care about this shit.
on the other hand, I hate the whole "Modern Web" shit. So if what google is doing will take it down then by all means, go fuck it up google.20
Firefox Quantum is the only software in beta stage I know of, that is more stable than the release one. I have to admit that I am somewhat of a fanboy when it comes to Firefox since I have been using it for the past 12 years. I never admitted it's quirks even though I secretly knew chrome had a better performance and stability lately. This rebirth gives me so much hope! YES! Firefox is not dieing!8
The story of Netscape and Internet Explorer really proves the irony of fate! And how life will come back to bite you.
Back in the 90's you had to pay for browsers like Netscape (it was called a navigator but same thing) but after Microsoft released IE for free with your windows copy in 2002 it crushed Netscape and nobody used it anymore (the graph below).
But! Netscape wouldn't give up and before the company died after it made legal accusations against Microsoft and Bill Gates and made them pay for that they did, but Netscape was too far gone and already were falling apart they decided to make a self detonation (I guess that's what they thought being in that tight corner) and they released the code as open source which would later get taken by Mozilla and be the code base for Firefox.
Now look at how much better Firefox is and how nobody uses the shitty IE!
Kind of reminds me of the scene from watchmen where Rorshack was in prison and said the best sentence in the movie "I'm not locked in here with you. You're locked in here WITH ME!"21
Dear Firefox Screenshot,
Please rename your "Save full page" label to "Save 5000px max".
While everyone else is talking about Firefox quantum, I'm here wishing there was a visual overhaul to Thunderbird because right now it looks like shit.18
Fucking genius firefox!
Somehow an ad created a new window with a popup that can't be closed. Thanks to firefox's single process, I had to close all my tabs.
Now after closing the firefox with task manager, when I open it again, it opens all the tabs that were closed, including that ad. HAHA, fucking awesome.5
Firefox is not a “chrome alternative”. Firefox is a better browser. Even if we completely keep the chromium privacy out of question, Firefox is still faster and Firefox devtools are still waaaay superior.14
oh it’s a little bit old ...
now everything is firefox quantum! the best browser ever
download firefox quantum is your purpose :)))6
People in my school launching Internet Explorer, cause Firefox takes to long to open/doesn't work fine - instead of clicking the shiny little chrome icon on their desktops...12
Who else uses Firefox over everything else? I switched from chrome recently and I don't regret it!27
My first post................... from firefox.
Chrome has made me to switch to firefox completely.14
When you open 100 tabs in Firefox (mobile). Not as cool as the chrome gimmick though (which replaces it with a :D smiley)7
1) Download version 46 of Firefox as required.
2) Install version 46
3) Open Firefox
4) Firefox then auto updates to version 52
5) Face smash desk and repeat4
Guys addon devRant in Firefox is available to Download from HERE:https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/...
Great !! Why would a tech giant like amazon work against linux ?
Amazon Prime music doesnt work with Linux/Firefox , but suddenly works when i switch user agent to Windows/Firefox . They are somehow purposefully blocking out linux ! Why ?? Whyyy ??7
Just found out you can take Screenshots of a webpage right from the firefox console... neat! You can even select specific elements to screenshot.
Just throw :screenshot into the console - Ff v62 (--selector [css-selector], --fullpage, and some other params you can look up)
Have a good Monday :)3
Guys notifications for new Rant in Firefox unofficial devRant extension are coming in few days !!!!!1
My Boss wanted to See the Sourcecode of a Website once. So I opened it.
Boss: what Browser is this?
Boss: Do you have Firefox?
... thank god IT was only an internship.5
Dear Chrome/firefox developers,
If someone presses the back button after they click on a link it means don't load that page and not go back to previous page.4
Arrrr not you too Firefox 😶 and Mr Robot . ... Wtf is wrong with both parties marketing team. If this is not irony, wtf is.
In "dom.webnotifications.enabled", change "true" to "false"
Website notifications are now disabled. You're welcome.8
Just started using Firefox nightly. It has an add on called "super dark mode" that automatically converts ANY site you visit to a dark theme.
#How the fuck did I use Chrome till now.3
I would love to use Firefox as main mobile browser but it's icon on the bottom row breaks my eyes. Waiting for their rebranding.9
Great. Just FUCKING great. When I was looking at devrant, suddenly some add-ons crashed (correction: ALL add-ons crashed!). All other tabs flooded with ads. I go to the add-ons manager, and what is their SHITTY excuse?
"Starting in Firefox version 57, only extensions built using WebExtensions APIs will work. Not sure if your add-ons are affected? See Firefox add-on technology is modernizing and these Frequently Asked Questions for details."
Anyone of you fuckwits ever heard of LEGACY SUPPORT? Leaving some time so the other devs can adapt to your new brainfart technology?! Even fucking C++ has that. FUCK!
Thank god devrant doesn't have ads.10
I ignored your update for ages.
Because half your dev base are retards circle jerking over a language made by a smug midwit marxist who believes in ceremony over productivity.
And then you go and autoupdate without my permisson. Didn't realize microsoft wasn't the only one that could push things on people like common rapists.
Went and pushed an update when I've EXPLICITLY turned down your update nagware hundreds of times.
And now ad block is disabled.
And I'm being flooded by bullshit.
And the 'patch' you released requires me to update.
Well jumping fucking christ on a pogo stick. Why didnt you just force update the whole god damn application you shit-for-brains firefox devs?
What, you thought I wouldn't fucking notice?
You thought, because microsoft did it, that this shit was cool, in 2019?
Like that bullshit you pulled as a 'tie in' for mr robot?
I would kick you in your fucking nuts if I met you.
Ps: Your fucking patch that you put out doesn't even fucking reenable extensions.
I'm moving to another browser with less 'diversity' in the dev team.37
How to test your cpu cooling system:
Set option CloseOnLastTab to false
Hit CTRL W and don't let it up
Watch cpu burn.11
So I was logging into google today and my password is very long so I often make mistakes while typing it so I went to inspect element to change input type to text so that I can check the password and I see that Firefox is storing my password already as plain text. Wtf Firefox???8
Google Chrome scans private files on the computer without mentioning the user and without the possibility do disable this "feature". Google never announced this anywhere.
Someone (Kelly Shortridge, @swagitda_ on Twitter) found this randomly and confronted Google. It answered that this was only an AV scan and wasn't done more than once a week.
Well, THAT'S why I use Firefox. I don't trust Google, and again and again it gives more and more reasons for this mistrust.7
Weird default middle mouse button behaviour in Firefox has finally been fixed. https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_b...
Only took 11 years...2
tired of my tor browser not letting me do my job (still configuring settings, but it's taking too long and i'm getting tired of it), and chrome doesn't show my mouse pointer (which works everywhere else on my machine).
Time to go back to firefox. downloading nightly this time, though. thoughts on it? any default settings I should change for security or to make it better in general?11
Thanks for syntax highlighting that, firefox! I spent almost 10mins checking the parentheses and trying different combos...1
Chrome (Chromium based browser) / Firefox (and variants) / IE (fuck it) tabs challenge
Me : 148 tabs
How to participate:
1. Post the screenshot of your tabs.
2. Count them.
3. Tell your browser.
Things to consider:
- Chrome (Chromium based browser) / Firefox (and variants) / IE (fuck it) should not lag (let's be honest)
- Max 8GB RAM (or whatever)
- Each page should have SOMETHING
- No mobile browsers, only desktop (linux welcome)
cozyplanes: 148 tabs / Vivaldi (Chromium)16
In firefox entering this term in the searchbar tries to open a website.
In Chrome, it searches the term.11
From yesterday, I have made Firefox Developer edition my primary browser replacing chrome.
So far it's doing a great job. Its feel fast as chrome.
Some google site like docs or spreadsheet is lagging sometimes.
I still click on chrome time to time without realizing.
Let's see how far I can do with this experience.21
It seems that the bug with the Add-ons on Firefox still remains unsolved (at least with firefox-esr on Debian, the "new" version seems not to have been released yet).
It has been an uncomfortable weekend on the Internet, but not enough to make me break my relation with Mozilla. Each time I miss my extensions, I think of those poor devs drinking coffee and fixing bugs during the weekend, instead of relaxing and do other things.
Why do I see so many annoyed people writing bad comments on Mozilla's blog? I mean, Firefox is open source, maybe we should be a little more patient and empathic with them :)
(source of the image: http://www.foxkeh.com/)10
Well done firefox for not implementing some stuff from ES6, because you decided to do so. Isn't the releases of EcmaScript considered to be standards? I'm a Firefox fan, but damn, Chrome is so much more advanced.7
Firefox seems to have removed a lot of extensions from their store now.... And all of them show in the addons.mozilla.org
Confused if it's really my system or mozilla23
After seeing so many posts about Firefox quantum using so much RAM. I can say this
"Firefox quantum is new Google chrome"3
Firefox: You know what our users need?
Ads in new tabs!
Yes I know it is "optional" but why should it be there in the first place?3
It was Adblock Plus that was making my Firefox Android terribly slow.
Just realized it after cursing 🔥Firefox for months.3
I installed the Firefox update before I left the house and now I am on my way back, filled with fear and excitememt, not knowing wtf everyone is so mad about/amazed by.10
Mozilla has announced that it's rolling out changes under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) to all Firefox users worldwide.
According to report of ZDNet: The CCPA (America's privacy legislation) came into effect on January 1, 2020, offering Californian users data-protection rules. Much like Europe's GDPR, the CCPA gives consumers the right to know what personal information is collected about them and to be able to access it. While the law technically only applies to data processed about residents in California, US. But Mozilla notes it was one of the few companies to endorse CCPA from the outset. Mozilla has now outlined the key change it's made to Firefox, which will ensure CCPA regulations benefit all its users worldwide. The main change it's introducing is allowing users to request that Mozilla deletes Firefox telemetry data stored on its servers. That data doesn't include web history, which Mozilla doesn't collect anyway, but it does include data about how many tabs were opened and browser session lengths. The new control will ship in the next version of Firefox on January 7, which will include a feature to request desktop telemetry data be deleted directly from the browser.6
I can't figure out how to get in contact with Firefox to figure out why every time i log into a website i need for work on Nightly, it states that my username or password aren't on record, and i have to change my password (even when switching browsers). Only started after their last update today, and now that I'm testing other sites, it's multiple sites, but not all.
So I currently use Edge as my web browser (and DuckDuckGo as my search engine) because I avoid Google’s services when possible. I have heard several good comments about Firefox recently. Is it worth the switch?21
What was firefox thinking when they decided to integrate pocket deeply in their browser. What the hell ff :/5
Have you ever wanted to open links with firefox from within termux?
$ cat firefox.sh
am start -a android.intent.action.WEB_SEARCH --activity-clear-task -t text/plain -d "$d" org.mozilla.firefox/org.mozilla.gecko.BrowserApp
thank me later7
Not sure why Firefox is taking too much resources. It's just one tab with gmail login page. And only one add-on is active (AdBlock Plus). Guess it's time to switch to chrome.21
I might ditch Firefox for Chrome just for the fact that sometimes it doesn't open a pdf doc rather it just starts downloading it again and again and again until I sign out.19
Wtf firefox ? are you serious ?
I made an extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/...) that uses the Storage API to store preferences. In their website the permission section it displayed "Access your data for all websites". Some guy gave 1 star and let this message "This does not need all my browsing information."
For firefox I'm worst than facebook. Get your facts right.2
If you're using the adwaita-dark gtk theme, you may have noticed that the text entry fields on lots and lots of sites make your text almost impossible to read, using firefox. You can fix that by creating/editing the, "widget.content.gtk-theme-override" key(in about:config), setting it to "Adwaita" and restarting firefox.5
Whenever I get dissapointment about my life,I remember the guy who using Internet Explorer to download Firefox or Chrome!3
The moment, when you're coding a new feature on friday, your code somehow behaves weird in firefox... dev console shows unexpected behaviour and you're starting to think YOU ARE GOING CRAZY...
And then.. you find a fricking fucking Bug from over 12 YEARS AGO which STATUS IS "NEW"!
"Yes, the problem still persist with 188.8.131.52"
"This is indeed still an issue in version 3.6.3"
"Yes, it still exists in FF 4."
"Bug still present in Firefox 8."
"This ticket is almost 10 years old. Switch to Chrome."
CONGRATS FUCKING MOZILLA! THANK YOU! <3 <3
Just when I was about to watch the Downton Abbey clips on YouTube I realize that my Firefox went completely silent without warning.
So the latest Firefox 52.0 decided to drop ALSA and force users to use pulseaudio instead. Otherwise the only way is to recompile the source with the alsa option enabled, or downgrade.
What the actual fuck Mozilla? Who made this decision? What's the reason behind? So far Firefox is the only browser that is having the sound problem.
Nope. not another bloated package. Maybe I should switch over to Chrome.4
Omg how stupid some people are... Today at my university I used the first time one of the computers in the computer room and there is a portable Firefox installed in a shared space on the computer and that is also where it saved settings etc. So this is the same for every user on that particular computer.
And when I checked the security settings I found that about 10 different accounts were saved and accessible with website username and password.
So of course the shared space Firefox is bad, but you still shouldn't save you password on a public computer :S
PS: If anyone needs a webmail account or an account for the german university network contact me :P4
Defining importance as a Web Developer.
Firefox === Iceweasel !important;
Each time I try firefox after somebody mentions it again or it's in my rss feed, it still seems to never actually advance
It's stuck and either gets worse or goes back to its stable non improving level again, how come do they still not have a proper mobile responsive tester, why are even the upgraded addons still suffering the same container and rendering bugs
how is it more important getting bad image by implementing mr robot malware, than getting on an actual competitive level
why is it default bloated with random pocket addon bullshit, why did it begin to lag, ..
I remember when I was using firefox for a good portion of my life and laughed at how google chrome is laggy, but nowadays theres simply no competition to chrome, its stability and developer tools
I wish there was competition, the grid tools were a great start, but then nothing followed and they just went back to their never improving flatline16
*uses chrome devtools*, breakpoints work, everything loads, can work on fixing bug
*uses firefox devtools*, takes more time than IE to show up, the UI doesn't show up, can cry in the corner.
Why is firefox debugger so bad :/6
Firefox developer fucked up this morning my development after the update -_-
The fucking "Enhancing Tracking Protection" was on a local Wi-Fi IP address(192.168...) which automatically redirected to the https of that IP, but I did setup kestrel to listen on HTTP, which resulted in a nice "Cannot enstablich a secure connection(and suck it up because ¯\_(ツ)_/¯)"
Fortunately it's easy to get rid off this cunt, just go on the shield nearby the address and disable that motherfucker.
ps: sorry for the lil rage, my morning train trip development brain cells should not be bothered by this automatic technical troubles
Further question to the Firefox developers:
WHAT THE FUCK are you thinking when you force developers to automatic HTTPS redirection when you should know more than anyone that development is 360deg(and not 90 like your mom)1
So apparently Firefox can't handle (quick) animations from opacity 0 to opacity greater-than-zero and glitches around. Instead you need to animate starting from something greater than 0, like 0.001.
I had to debug this shit and it just adds to my reasons to dislike this browser.5
Holy shit firefox, 3 retarded problems in the last 24h and I haven't fixed any of them.
My project: an infinite scrolling website that loads data from an external API (CORS hehe). All Chromium browsers of course work perfectly fine. But firefox wants to be special...
(tested on 2 different devices)
(Terminology: CORS: a request to a resource that isn't on the current websites domain, like any external API)
For the infinite scrolling to work new html elements have to be silently appended to the end of the page and removed from the beginning. Which works great in all browsers. BUT IF YOU HAPPEN TO BE SCROLLING DURING THE APPENDING & REMOVING FIREFOX TELEPORTS YOU RANDOMLY TO THE END OR START OF PAGE!
Guess I'll just debug it and see what's happening step by step. Oh how wrong I was. First, the problem can't be reproduced when debugging FUCK! But I notice something else very disturbing...
The Inspector view (hierarchical display of all html elements on the page) ISN'T SHOWING THE TRUE STATE OF THE DOM! ELEMENTS THAT HAVE JUST BEEN ADDED AREN'T SHOWING UP AND ELEMENT THAT WERE JUST REMOVED ARE STILL VISIBLE! WTF????? You have to do some black magic fuckery just to get firefox to update the list of DOM elements. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO DEBUG MY WEBSITE ON FIREFOX IF IT'S SHOWING ME PLAIN WRONG DATA???!!!!
During all of this I just randomly decided to open my website in private (incognito) mode in firefox. Huh what's that? Why isn't anything loading and error are thrown left and right? Let's just look at the console. AND IT'S A FUCKING CORS ERROR! FUCK ME! Also a small warning says some URLs have been "blocked because content blocking is enabled." Content Blocking? What is that? Well it appears to be a supper special supper privacy mode by firefox (turned on automatically in private mode), THAT BLOCKS ALL CORS REQUESTS, THAT MAY OR MAY NOT DO SOME TRACKING. AN API THAT 100% CORS COMPLIANT CAN'T BE USED IN FIREFOXs PRIVATE MODE! HOW IS THE END USER SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT??? AND OF COURSE THE THROWN EXCEPTION JUST SAYS "NETWORK ERROR". HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO TELL THE USER THAT FIREFOX HAS A FEAUTRE THAT BREAKS THE VERY BASIS OF MY WEBSITE???
WHY CAN'T YOU JUST BE NORMAL FIREFOX??????????????????
I actually managed to come up with fix for 1. that works like < 50% of the time -_-5
After seeing so many rants about firefox quantum, I decided to give it a try. And now I am stuck at this screen for more than an hour. Is it windows or firefox? Guess, I'll have to look for the full installer.11
Mozilla will update the browser to DNS-over-HTTPS security feature to all Firefox users in the U.S. by default in the coming weeks.
According to the report of TechCrunch : Whenever you visit a website ; even if it's HTTPS enabled, the DNS query that converts the web address into an IP address that computers can read is usually unencrypted. DNS-over-HTTPS or DoH encrypts the request so that it can not be intercepted or hijacked in order to send a user to a malicious site. These unencrypted DNS queries can also be used to snoop on which websites a user visits. The feature relies on sending DNS queries to third-party providers such as Cloudflare and NextDNS which will have their DoH offering into Firefox and will process DoH queries. Mozilla also said it plans to expand to other DoH providers and regions.13
Decided to ditch chromium when installing Linux on my work laptop for the first time, and stick to Firefox and DDG. No regrets, it works great!!2
Firefox's Responsive Design Mode is shitty. After 2,3 refreshes, it just stops loading new changes. And hang like a drug overdosed whore who got continuous gang bang.
It just stops.
I have to turn it off and on again to be able to use it.5
I just want to get this off my chest, IE isn't a bad browser. It's highly outdated but it was good back when the alternatives weren't there. And today it's new "browser update" Edge isn't bad either. Edge really is a neat freaking piece of software. Microsoft tries their best to make a browser for their operating system (and a browser engine for their new app format!) that means it has couple of features the alternatives don't (or only with plugins) - oh and plugins, they're coming too. And still it's not slow either. From my own experience (I say this because every user says their browser is the fastest) it's way faster than Quantum. Yet Quantum is still a very good browser because it's faster than the old firefox, I guess it's open source(?) and still a privacy focused browser. Chrome (my personal favorite) on the other hand is really the fastest thing you can get - if you allow it to use all your ram - (if people like linuxxx say firefox is faster for them, I'll just smile) but for everyone worrying about ram usage and "spying", well - you know what I mean. And still I can understand people trying opera or FF/Chrome/Edge mods, I myself love "Monument". Just stop saying a browser is bad because it doesn't have what you like/does have what you don't like. The only bad browser is Midori, okay? 😘
IE isn't bad but old. Edge isn't bad today. Every high end browser (edge, quantum, chrome) has their perks and none of them is "bad".
What's your favorite Browser? Comment below9
So I decided to start using NoScript in Firefox recently, and it's been the most wonderful and annoying experience.
Wonderful - Easy to use whitelist on a domain basis makes it easy to un-break websites I trust while keeping potential malicious JS from other domains out.'
Annoying - Now I get why all the graybeards on Hacker News hate what the modern web has become9
A few Questions I have to decide soon, for tools I never used:
1- How do you guys keep information about several accounts and stuff? Must have some protection to not be easily accessible (started using Google Notepad and Evernote until I find better... don't really like them)
2- Firefox: Is there a way to store groups of open tabs?
Like I have one windows with 6 or 7 tabs for movies (youtube and such), other for general stuff with 5 or 6 tabs, other with Arduino shit, and I'm going to pick Vue soon and another language to build native apps and that will be a lot more tabs, It would be nice to close them all and open them all at will or something.
3 - What Is your favorite browser? I'm using Firefox, but there are so many new good ones... Like Brave browser with Tor incorporated, or Puffin for Android (which uses a VPN with their own server by default)
4 - For windows users, do you have any tools to help with workflow installed? which ones you use and why?
5 - What I'm using: Google Notepad + Evernote to save stuff, Windows 10 and Firefox, (Linux Mint in VM) and I just keep my shortcuts in folders... I don't use the Windows taskbar for a long while since its so full of shit.
6 - How do you do your backups? Right now I'm just putting my code and important stuff in Dropbox.
I'm an old school programmer... Stuck in 1990's Ideas and there is so muchhhh shit these days that I would prefer your opinions then just googling.
Guess that's enough for this post. Thank you guys29
Firefox is shit
- In version 62 the cocksuckers finally removed the ability to add description to bookmarks, now there is no difference between mozilla shit browser and chrome, except chrome has working mobile version and working bookmark sync.
- Yes, firefox mobile on android does not even allow you to edit bookmarks so that useless crap can't be called a browser at all.
- Firefox shitcoded sync takes more time to sync 1 bookmark, than chrome takes to setup all bookmarks/addons/settings on fresh-install and in addition to that, it messed my bookmarks several times, so I am forced to sync places.sqlite via dropbox to syncronize bookmarks, because it is way much faster and reliable.36
What is the best time to update a dating site so its incompatible with Firefox..
How about, a few hours before Valentine's day..
Me - "Mmm.. must be busy, I'll wait.."
Me + 24 hours = "Mmm.. maybe something broken, lets try another browser like say Chrome, oh it magically works!"3
What's wrong with Mozilla?!
Savvy webdevs use link preloading to break up dependency chains for late discovered resources, and users like the faster loading as result. Firefox 56 started supporting that two and a half years ago. Turned out they had screwed up and it didn't work with non-cacheable resources. So Mozilla "fixed" that by disabling the feature altogether behind some config flag.
And they left it at that - still not supported. They even had patches, but decided not to merge them and instead try something different, some day.
Is Firefox becoming the new IE or what?6
WOW! Firefox you are worse than Chrome! From 10GB used memory down to 3GB when you are closed :|
(had a VM taking some of the memory, closing it made memory go down to 10GB from 14GB used)9
Everybody hates facebook!
I have been receiving alert request to use since 2018 by firefox. Maybe i will enable now and see how it works.7
Got an update for Firefox 😊 ->
Updated Firefox 🎉 ->
Got a sticky popup that asks if I would answer 3 review questions, why not? 🙄 ->
Went to a fucking website that uses my fucking IP to identify my fucking language automatically, and the result is the one you can see in the image,
half fucking German and half fucking English,
meanwhile I'm the turd from fucking Italy!
Firefox, I didn't knew you like it 🤬 black (pattern(UX))
Message for ALL, take my example and WHENEVER THERE'S A TURD THAT SUGGESTS TO IMPLEMENT THE fucking LOCALIZATION BASED ON IP ADDRESSES, SAY THAT IT DOESN'T WORK, NEVER WORKED(not my first time elsewhere on the web) AND NEVER FUCKING WILL 😤8
Firefox will be enabling dns over https by default in the near future for all its users
firefox is so private that they have broken their developer tools, so that no one can debug the web pages.5
when you hit a site with a 'bad certificate'
why is the default option to permanently add it? -.-2
Mozilla's addon's page is down and i can't install Ghostery, error indicator, etc...
What a nice start for Firefox Quantum :(2
Started opening tabs in Firefox Quantum like all you devs do during development. All of a sudden, firefox gave up and stopped loading any new websites.
Bookmarked all the tabs and closed ff. Clicked on again, the old process appearantly is stuck, so it showed a warning, closed the old one and opened it again.
Alright fine, opened all the tabs from bookmarks again. Firefox is again stuck. Realised some of the tabs might be acting up. Just to double check if it really is those tabs, decided to open them in chrome.
It opened fine and I continued to browse in Chrome without any hiccups.
Just realised one thing. Every single time I have IntelliJ IDEA or Android Studio opened, Chrome of Firefox are just, like really fast. But as soon as I close IntelliJ or Studio, the browsers are slow as hell.1
Firefox is getting better and better!
There are even some nice new features like the screenshot tool (in 58 available for the private mode, too!) that are really exciting.
I am looking forward that Firefox could maybe become again what it was back then! It's so cool!5
I still remember the moment when I found out that there's something other than Internet Explorer ("The Internet program" back then for me), named Firefox (v2.7).
It was simple stuff like tabs that fascinated me, it's an experience similar to learning a second language and opening up your mind and understand the abstract idea of everything.1
Angular dosent work as well in Firefox somehow...
The navigation is choppy, observables are slow.
I think anything to do with rxjs dosent work as well.
Chrome works great even on cell phones.8
UI designers! Please understand that whilst animations are pretty, people don't want their webpages, apps and game UI elements jumping around when they're trying to interact with a button.
So Firefox for Android recently received an update that, stripping out 90% of the browser's functionality aside, has two glaring issues:
1_ about:config got disabled, so any options that, say, scaled webpages to not look like they're made of Duplo are now totally ignored. Enjoy your toddler websites!
2_ The search bar auto-hides. On every scroll. It changes the viewport size when it hides, making webpages frantically jump around and change CSS rules. There's no option to turn off auto-hiding. Twitter already jumps around like a rabbit on the strongest crack carrots can buy, and they somehow made it WORSE.
How the actual fuck? Today I found another page where I can't sign up because the fields do not recognize when I typed in them in firefox.
One of those sites is to change passw of university account.
Guess what browser they recommend...4
AN APP THAT LETS ME USE FIREFOX I STEAD OF SAFARI ON MY FUCKING IPHONE
ITS NOT THAT DAMN HARD APPLE. YOU DID IT FOR THE MAC...
also devrant, plz add browser selection for iOS (yes I already submitted a GH issue)5
What the fuck is this steaming shit!?
You fucking background apps, chrome and Firefox take all my resources to fucking open my Google drive?!
AND WHY THE FUCK ARE THERE 19 INSTANCES OF CHROME RUNNING!!!!
WHY THE FLYING FUCK DO YOU NEED TO DO THIS! LET THE FUCK LOAD!
I HATE WINDOWS! BUT THEN THERE ARE APPS WHO ARE FOR WINDOWS AND MAC ONLY!
I'M DYING NOW!!!!!!!!
FINE! EAT ALL MY 12 GB RAM AND FUCK YOURSELF IN THE CORNER BUT PET ME DO MY WORK!11
Do you guys have any issue with Firefox lately?
It's lagging and hanging a lot on my laptop since like two weeks ago.
I usually run like 2 windows with no more than 7 tabs each. So 15 tabs max in total.
The rest of service I run are sublime, terminal, Mailspring on my lubuntu LAMP stack. :(
The latest app I installed and used is Mailspring, so if nobody has similar issue, I'm gonna disable it and test.8
Me: *opens devTools*
Firefox: yea bro lemme just ..uh.. hmm yeah so this is the css for the element, see?
Me: this makes no sense, why would I ever do that?
Firefox: also you can't have width on an anchor tag. I can't put that rule into effect
Me: I didn't put any width on your inline element, you sure about that?
Firefox: yea try using display: inline-block
Me: No. I'll just delete that. *checks file*
Me: Maybe that line is wrong because IT DOES NOT FUCKING EXIST!
What is this shit? I just restarted you! What else do you need, a reinstall? Drink too much over the holidays?
It's like the css editor has become a shallow tray with rules on it, and as soon as you bump it a little everything spills over and then Firefox just thinks oops, I've got this font-size: 200% lying around, lemme stick this into the hr tag which makes sense because THERE CAN'T BE ANY TEXT IN IT.9
>over9999 times faster
-Ughm, okay, but what is the trick?..
-THE TRICK IS THAT NONE OF YOUR FAVORITE ADDONS WILL WORK!!!
Seriously this is fucking insane! Several of my addons which were essential for me to stay sane is gone and I don't even know how to live without them. And all this bullshit is happening because these idiots in Mozilla decided to enforce use of WebExtensions. For ones who unaware, WebExtensions is much, much poorer framework and many cool addons simply unable to work under WebExtensions because of its limitations.
Are you the one who loved the speed and joy of using mouse gestures? GUESS WHAT — IT'S GONE.
Maybe you made your browsing activity super efficient with use of the “Tab Groups” addon that used to allow you to group your browser sessions? SAY BYE-BYE TO IT!
And many more!
Most importantly, I cannot understand why would a company enforce use of a framework that will decrease functionality of a product.
Anyway, it seems like Firefox is not a browser for addon enthusiasts like me anymore; got to find a new one, any recommendations?11
Today on "fuck Firefox": elements with display: inline and position: relative completely mess up z-index and nested fixed / absolute positioned elements. It's a known bug, it has open issues on bugzilla since 2005, but still no fix. IE 8 can get it right, but not Firefox...10
Damn it, log into PC, open Firefox, *ALL* extensions have been disabled for not meeting Firefox Standards !
FX [ Swear mode activated. ]11
Downloaded Firefox quantum after seeing so many posts about it. On startup, I was left wondering if I had opened Opera instead. It looks and feels almost the same.4
Where did that image come from ?
Let me use google images to search..
I'll just save the image to desktop..
And drag it to the browser window to drop it into the search box..
FX [ PC Hiccup.. ]
No wait, it will instead try to drop it into the browser, and Firefox crashes, taking all of my open tabs with it..
And now it wants to do an update..
(Is that why it crashed ?)
At least its opening the closed tabs, and running all those paused videos for me..
There, several minutes of my life wasted, just because I thought it wouldn't take me a moment to check something..7
Well after a month with Brave web browser I'm forced to go back to Firefox. It's way unstable, too many bugs and glitches and lacks some add-ons1
The moment you realize that you have successfully beaten reality with your unit-tests...
There are unit-tests for ...
... the api returning a 408 Http StatusCode when an internal request times out.
... the react app take this status-code and fires an action to display a specific error message for the user.
Every bit of code runs just fine.
Deploy this hell of an app on the server. Dandy Doodle.
Do a smoketest of the new feature.
Chrome starts to crumble during runtime. The api Request freezes.
Firefox takes the 408 api response but fails to interpret it in react app.
So I began to wonder, what the hell is going on.
Actually I recognized that I had the glorious idea to return a clientside error code in a serverside api response.
Glorious stupidity :/
Finally I fixed the whole thingy by returning an 504 (Gateway timeout) instead of 408 (Clientside timeout)
Mozilla launched Firefox 72 for Windows, Mac, Linux and Android which includes fingerprinting scripts blocked by default, less annoying notifications and Picture-in-Picture video on macOS and Linux. See the release notes for the details of these features and other changes.
I was watching a interesting video on YouTube and suddenly Firefox froze. After waiting for few minutes I killed Firefox. Now I see the video is removed by the user.😬😬. Also makes me wonder if Google can freeze the browser if it doesn't want the video to be viewed.3
recently, after the Firefox addon controversy, many Firefox users have switched to another browser for a few days or permanently. If you've also switched from Firefox to something else, please let me know why did you choose that browser & if not what is holding you back to Firefox.
For me, I've been using brave since the addon controversy. Brave is okay but still needs a lot of things to improve. I'm also missing the separate address bar and search bar of Firefox and some keyboard shortcuts. what about you? Please comment your opinion. Thanks.21
What browser does everyone use? I've been using Firefox and its pretty good mixed with DuckDuckGo I could ask for better, but people seem to love Chrome. What does everyone think should I try Chrome for a bit.40
I have used Firefox for web development since forever. The recent major update has absolutely turned my world upsidedown. 95% of my numerous, essential addons no longer working, tab groups vanished, keyboard shortcuts scuppered.
While I appreciate the moves towards speeding it up etc, it's nonetheless a goddam scandal.
I wonder if anyone else is facing similar problems. Any solutions?9
So Mozilla let's you download old version of Firefox for people like me who update then find none of their extensions work. But Firefox comes with auto updates by default so it just fucking updates anyway to the new version and everything fucking breaks. Fuck you Mozilla.3
Firefox doesn't map correctly the controller (Xbox One) but it works on Chrome. (FF on Android Works)
This is literally the first time (for me) that something works on Chrome and not on FF. (at first shot)
usually it is the opposite.
One point for Chrome (this time)
but still 6,022*10²³ Points for FF.3
Which browser do you guys prefer ?
(currently switch between opera, vivaldi and firefox quantum(beta).)16
Does anyone know if anything special is required to vertically center a div in Firefox?
It works perfectly fine in chrome and IE and Edge and freaking everything else!!12
So yeah, my IDE is open and I'm just doing my daily rounds on SO when my rig suddenly feels like it's melting from playing Battlefield in 4K everything max. Chrome! Chrome! Chrome! It thinks were married, taking liberties with all my free real estate. You are out! Hey Firefox DE.1
I recently managed to accidentally delete the entirety of a personal C++ project on which had been working for a couple of days; after attempting to create an archive without tarballing the folder, I noticed that the files had been compressed individually, which was not the desired output. After running <code>rm *.gz</code>, I realised that I had forgotten to specify that the original files should be kept; as a result of this, I had accidentally deleted every project file. Instead of kicking the shit out of my table and forcing myself to spend money on new equipment, I understood that this was entirely my fault and could be prevented in the future. Luckily, I managed to recreate the entirety of the project in less than an hour, and it runs nicely.
_Remember to make back-ups._
On a different note, as if to prove that the majority of recent software is worthless, the recent Firefox update runs like AIDS on my machine (i5-2520M + 8GB DDR4). Fix your shit, Mozilla. This is inexcusable.4
Ok. FUCK THIS SHIT.
It's been like literally 15 minutes and I've been struggling, trying to *do* something at all.
I don't know why or how my experience with firefox has just plumetted through the floor. I partially blamed my slow ass HDD but guess what, chrome ran beautifully last I checked.2
You're asking why I am so fucking angry at this piece of software? Well because I was awake at night for 3 hours reinstalling my mail system because I thought the Web UI was broken due to a corrupted database. Guess what - the caching of chrome caused the buttons to silently hide beneath the header of the UI. Hahahahahakillmehahah
To be fair, this could have happened with every browser. But since everyone is on the "anti-google" trip anyway, I'm gonna switch to Firefox 🙃1
In the latest update of firefox, the dev console shows all tabs as labels instead of the icons that never really made any sense to me, and in Swedish too! This is a great improvement, I love it! :)1
I am glad that firefox for android got an overhaul. I've been waiting a long time for more granular settings, before you couldn't even list websites you gave a particular pernission, and FINALLY passwords can't be viewed before authenticating with your fingerprint.
But after over two years I'm just so used to the old design, that it's glaringly obvious how less fluent the new ui is.
Instead of two clicks to access stored passwords you now need 4. And the button to open the tab list is now half my screen away from the actual tabs, and basically the entire screen away from "new tab".
The starting page isn't as good as before, although I hear they're working on it. But what is this shit, it took me like a week to even find the url bar context nenu!18
Just a helpful hint: if you ever run Firefox from the terminal for any reason, use "firefox &>/dev/null &". It runs on the same thread and spits out tons of random logs.
Edit: also, hello world! Almost forgot. :)3
Firefox Quantum broke mouse gestures of any kind in Linux by forcing the context menu to come up on right mouse down, instead of up.
Lots of people love Quantum, but without a viable mouse gestures extension, it's unusable for me. I downgraded back to 56 until this issue is resolved.3
Could never decide which one is better. So i just use both randomly. What about you? Chrome or Firefox?30
Firefox Quantum vs Chrome - Round 2
I was prompted with an update for FF (auto-updater always fails for some reason), went on their website, found that part on the page, and opened up task manager. Had a short laugh.
FF: 7 tabs
Same extensions (AdBlocker, Ghostery, PageSpeed). Chrome has JetBrains integration though.
Actually 60% more use. Quantum Optimisations™7
my slow laptop.. when I run android studio, Firefox and an emulator together.
why everything is so RAM eating?7
Webdevs: do you prefer Google Chrome (or Chromium), Mozilla Firefox or something else for the default webdevelopment and why?17
FU OneTab. This is second time you lost my saved tabs. Off you go.
TL;DR OneTab extension has major bug.
Anyone who read my suggestions/comments to use OneTab to save your opening tabs on your Chrome and Firefox, I apologize from here. And suggest you to be careful with it. I know that I have recommended it plenty of times here.
I have no idea what's causing the data lost. I used OneTab since years ago on Chrome and it worked fine. I switched to Firefox when Quantum came out. OneTab came to FF addon repo this year. I was very happy and installed and used it straight away. But it wasn't as good as before.
I don't like to open lots of tabs. Max I have will be a dozen. I like to work different task, different project on different windows. I usually have 2 windows. One window for my personal and social use with tabs like devRant, discord, etc. Second window for one of my projects and I usually work on one project at a time. If I have to juggle among multiple projects unfortunately, I open third or fourth windows respectively.
Hence, saving all opening tabs of a window to be able to open it easily next time is a very useful feature for me. I don't even need those saved to be permanent. I save URLs I frequently visit as bookmarks and URLs I found useful to pocket.
OneTab served that purpose. But losing saved tabs is definitely major problem for me. So I have uninstalled it and now giving a try to Stash. Very new add-on, so I'm still not sure of it yet. On bright side, it is made for Firefox and open-source. OneTab is not open-source.
So far Stash is working fine. But I will wait and see for a week or so.2
Trying to port a legacy Firefox add-on I didn't write to WebExtension. Failing so amazingly...
Vague explanations, no tutorials. Mdn has a nice documentation but no tutorials. What's up with that??
He said to test it out before class, he wrote a lil JS script and submitted it to a text field using IE and then again using Chrome.
IE let the script run no problems (big surprise) but chrome blocked the script from running.
He doesn’t use Firefox, but I just recently switched from chrome to FF so I tested it out in class on FF.
I was surprised to see FF ran the script no problem. Surprised because I made the switch because of security reasons, my partner helped me secure all my shit and we both switched to FF cause every resource suggested it.
This is just one small case that I feel isn’t a huge deal, my prof said any decent dev will strip tags or whatever, but made me think: are there any other security concerns with FF? Am I right to consider it a more secure and therefore “better” browser?4
Comparing three browsers applying exact same style, ttb edge chrome firefox, where chrome is the intended look and edge the most fucked up one whoo2
*Writing JS validation*
step1: testing for the 1st time
Chrome: all good
Firefox: with bug
IE: ugh... it's hard to explain
step2: fixing script
Chrome: all good
Firefox: all good
IE: with bug
step3: fixing script for IE
Chrome: with bug
Firefox: with bug
IE: with bug
step4: revert to step 2
Sorry, IE, but I don't know what you disliked there...
Mozilla has announced plans to remove support for the FTP protocol from Firefox. Users won't be able to download files via the FTP protocol and view the content of FTP folders inside the Firefox browser.
According to the report of ZDNet: Michal Novotny, a software engineer at the Mozilla Corporation said "We're doing this for security reasons, FTP is an insecure protocol and there are no reasons to prefer it over HTTPS for downloading resources. Also, a part of the FTP code is very old, unsafe and hard to maintain and we found a lot of security bugs in it in the past." Novotny says Mozilla plans to disable support for the FTP protocol with the release of Firefox 77, scheduled for release in June this year.
Users will still be able to view and download files via FTP, but they'll have to re-enable FTP support via a preference inside the about:config page.13
I get it, I didn't read up before I acted, but seriously?
"Starting with Firefox version 67 each Firefox installation requires a separate profile."
Then I went to uninstall the new version of Firefox so I could stay with the old. It uninstalled the old version. Now I have a version of Firefox with no uninstall option that won't talk to my old profile. I found options for this, but really? Is firefox becoming a shit hole now? Have I just noticed that it already was a shit hole?
Pissed, thinking of going over the Edge...5
I've noticed that My system is not hanged yet when I opened two times more tabs in Firefox in comparison of Chrome.4
Chome what the hell is this?
In Firefox with my default theme I can tell which tab is open and which one isn't. In Chrome, you put !!white as a highlight over gray.
You have actually managed to design a UI element almost on the same level of terrible as IE6-11, almost.3
So I spent 2 hours trying to debug my HTML form with data pulled from database. I kept updating the data in the database but the forms weren't changing. Then it finally struck me, Firefox fucking caches form fields on page reload. I use to think this was a convinient feature but now it's just a pain in the ass.1
The day has finally come! I was waiting for Firefox Quantum for me to make the switch from Chrome. I like the new design and it is definitely zippy. Loving it thus far!
Muuuuch lower RAM usage too. This is especially great for me since my Internet is slow and I only have 4GB RAM.
I just used the program from the download itself. Mint for some reason still uses 54 by default, which came out in 2015. Anyone know how to switch panel icons? I want the fancy new icon on my taskbar.2
I think it only happens in Firefox..
Scroll using the scrollwheel up to the top of the page, and it sometimes bounces downwards..
Is this a 'feature' in Firefox/Windows 10/etc. you can turn off ?
Doesn't happen in Chrome..7
I'm trying to update my addon-list, what are (firefox-)addons you say are a must have? (My focus is on privacy, anti-tracking and shitloads of open tabs)
As of now my addons are:
DDG privacy essentials
Self destroying cookies
So I and couple of my friends are facing this chrome issue where 'waiting for proxy tunnel' , apparantly it's changing my location too,
It should return .co.in and returns .ae ,
Wtf I'm scared as hell, for now Firefox is a lifesaver ♥️3
I wanted to install Firefox developer edition mainly because of multiprocessing
Now as I activated syncing, it synced my addons, after I restarted multiprocessing was disabled and greyed out
So i began to test which addon it was, deleting the contents of its profile each time
After half an hour I finally tried restarting without any addons, it was fucking disabled
Just using Firefox disables multiprocessing? Wtf?!5
Switched from Chrome to Firefox, and my CPU usage literally dropped from 80% to less than 10%. How is this possible?5
Clicked "Reader View" on a Jira card in Firefox. Firefox displays a JSON object which it estimates is going to take me 17-20 minutes to read.
Go home, Firefox, you're drunk.
Have any of you tried Firefox Quantum? What are your thoughts about it? I am thinking on switch from Chrome on macOS.7
Just dropping some current experience here.
Content security policies are big mess in both chrome and firefox.
Chrome has some 4 years old "bug" where you can't add hash of JS file to 'style-src' policy to permit inline-styles THAT would be set by this script (jQuery actually).
Firefox is beautifully unhelpful, it just pops of error "blocked ..something..", not even saying what it was.
And I am missing a pair of some steel balls to ask about this on SO because there is this much of very similar questions, nonetheless -if I did read them right- every one of them is talking about enabling style attribute, and that's something different.
EDIT2: Chrome currently generates 138 errors "jquery-3.4.0.min.js:2 Refused to apply inline style..." , this ain't hitting production.10
"Your connection is not secure". It is too! The certificate is valid to 2019, and in Chrome it's no problem. Stupid Firefox!3
That old Windows copy and paste bug issue again. :-)
I wonder if its due to some Linux code someplace..
Anyhow, I was using a remote desktop application and copying some text from there, and trying to post it into Firefox..
Except it was posting the previous thing I pasted, and not the thing I really wanted to paste !
But, if I open Notepad, and paste to there, it does correctly paste the last thing I copied, and not the previous thing.
If I then copy that, and try posting it into Firefox, it works correctly !
So, its all Firefox's fault !!!
So, where do I report bugs in Firefox ?
Though it could be an OS bug.. ?
I'd have to test more applications, when I get time !
I bet this doesn't happen under Linux. :-)
Or does it ?2
I switched to firefox for a while, the thing is multiple times a day I try to zoom into an image or something, and it never works...
Hopefully this serves as a reminder!6
BLOODY FIREFOX DEVELOPER TOOLS
I was troubleshooting an app (inside container) hitting an endpoint. For debugging purposes I tried hitting the endpoint from my machine, but always got a 404.
So in the firefox developer tools under the network section you see all of the requests happening. Every request, application/json or url-encoded, lists its parameters inside the tab 'parameters' tab. I thought that means those parameters were i side the request body.
Turns out I should have sent the parameters as url encoded instead of POSTing JSON as the request body. This took me way too long.
Why not display the request url like http://url?key=value ... Firefox? Eh?7
TIL Firefox and Chrome renders "word-break: break-word" and "word-break: break-all" differently. It just makes me hope that there's a way to force install Firefox into the users' computer if they use chrome.1
Some script keeps freezing my firefox while facebook is open. Hell, I only ever use it to chat with people...
I already went to hell and back and can't seem to fix if.
No other site does it, already cleared cookies etc.
I really don't want to switch to another browser...7
Oh my... Webkit is trolling me again. How easy was it to style a website in Firefox and then I found out it looks like shit in Chrome. I can't event fix it fuckkkk.
The best part of the story - it's Bootstrap so I would assume it could work the same across the browsers.2
Am I the only one where the new Firefox Quantum just hangs when loading sites?(fresh FF install on Ubuntu 16.04)
Chromium works fine though...6
...Firefox I feel like you just stabbed me in the back.
Version 49.0.1 I pull out Internet on Mac, navigator.onLine returns false. I pull out Internet on PC (windows 8) same version navigator.onLine returns true even though work offline mode is off.
While working with Django Rest Framework, the Post and Delete requests were giving me 403 error. With no help from stack overflow, I decided in vain to check it with Firefox browser instead of Chrome.
IT FUCKING WORKS ON FIREFOX!! HOW THE FUCK??
Things like this are responsible for my mid life crisis.12
Can we also quit with the Internet Explorer jokes? The browser is pretty good now-- and this is coming from a diehard Firefox fanboy. IE jokes are STALE. Thank you.4
. Resisted the urge of trying Firefox Quantum when everyone was talking about it on here.
. Finally gave in today and tried it.
. Fell in love with it.3
When you realise CHROME and FIREFOX needs different JQuery syntax to work with AJAX...
I had a fun experience today.
Updated my system, got plenty of unsuspecting dpkg errors. Couldn't figure out how to solve them (all relating to something python-*). Next issue was Firefox, which wouldn't even start.
And it won't even start up without immediately giving me some XML error related to... chrome? Whatever.
Start it from the terminal, mostly to see if it gives me the error in more detail. Ublock Origin does not like when Firefox gets reinstalled apparently. Spend more time than I'd like to admit getting a Firefox to start in safe mode with all extensions disabled. Apparently it's 'firefox -safe-mode' (yes I didn't try the obvious because I wasn't thinking). Uninstall all my extensions then Install them again, problem solved.
Now to solve those damn dpkg errors...1
Those money whores of google at it again
I hereby invite all chrome users to firefox9
OMG fuck yeah!
Today I was workin' on my CSS framework, made a couple of cool functions for generating hsla() colors with a customizable lightness and opacity. Using calc() for multiplying the default lightness by the value passed in parameter to the function.
"It's working perfectly in Chrome and Edge, cool! Now let's check in Firefox, but if it's okay on Edge, I'm pretty confident..."
Except, that's a failure: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_b...
At that point, I started to rant alone. Properly. Like: "why this feature is still not implemented, people are waiting for it since YEARS!! Fuckin' browsers war!!!"
I was already thinking to drop a big angry post on here, when I noticed something : https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US...
So I update Firefox Developer Edition and, IT WORKS!
This feature was needed since years and the FF team brings it just when I need it. What was the chance ? I feel happy :)
Conclusion: sometimes ranting is the easy way. Calm down, try harder and you can find the solution!1
It pisses me that firefox tab randomly doesn't stop loading even after the page finished loading all it stuffs.2
I only need my 16GB ram for my 50 tabs in 3 Firefox windows - I shouldn't keep opening pages to never read them...1
"Google Search Fixer" is a must on Firefox Android iff you use Google search.
Now I can finally start using Firefox again..
PS: I was using Edge till now
It's such a bummer that the mozilla devs chose to release firefox exclusively on GTK for linux. I would love to see a QT build, or a QT-based fork. If anyone knows of one, I will pay in exposure.2
Anyone know why a button appears on Firefox and not other browsers?
I'm currently improving a software made by another developer and can't seem to figure out why these two buttons appear in an input form for Mozilla Firefox and not other browsers. I can't seem to find the code that causes this anywhere in the source code.
The buttons are up and down, and allow users to increment or decrement the value in the form.3
My first experience with Firefox 57 (aka "Quantum"):
WHERE THE FUCK DID MY TEXT GO.
HOLY SHIT! HOW CAN YOU FUCK UP SOMETHING LIKE TEXT RENDERING.
Then I installed nightly and it worked again.
These days browsing through some sites firefox asked me to access to my mic and camera... According to you, why?
I think (and I hope) that was because of some specific sites...13
Which browser do u use and why???
Ps. The "♤" spade marks are for the Legends who will leave their mark on the history34
I'm seriously considering making my website animations only support Firefox because apparently Mozilla are the only people who thought native smooth scrolling and implementing scroll-behavior was a good idea3
Fuck Mozilla! !!
Why do yu mess everything up
My app looks nice and neat in Chrome
Load up Firefox and the whole thing crumbles22
having a hard time centering buttons children because firefox does not support flexbox in button element. :/
Today i quit Edge and i'm back on firefox.
Why ? Edge is very good but i like to change my default browser frequently to make my own idea of their quality.
Next step I will probably go to vivaldi or come back to chrome.
Have you an advice for a browser to test ?7
Does Firefox know that MacBooks don’t have “esc” button?
Does it notify like
YouTube.come is full screen press esc to exit.5
Chrome doesn't support something, something Firefox doesn't.
When you plan to take a risk, they give F*** you later on.
IE do you even exist?
Am I the only one who isn't really that bothered by Mozilla's mistake with Firefox and that Mr robot thing?
They made a big fuck-up, yes, but do you think they'll do it again? I don't.
They aren't a perfect company, but neither is anyone fucking else! They're still helping the web, giving grant money to open source, and have the best docs I've found, so I think this is just a misstep, not a red flag.2
I like Firefox a lot.
But it isn't very nice with WPAs, an area of my interest, and downloads PDFs instead of showing them...
Plus I have seen Vivaldi is pretty good for quite some things, like tabs groups and tabs hibernation, has notes, a cool calendar...
But Chrome's console...
It's the only reason I stay with Firefox. (I not only use it at work, but I also use the command line as a pocket JS engine for little scripting and parsing.)
If only I could get selection bracket wrapping and a multiline editor... is it that hard?4
I just got a U2F key, and I have an extension for Firefox for it to work on that browser. When I try to set it up in my Google account it wants me to use Chrome. Now why the fuck can't they check for the functionality instead of what browser I'm using?
What is your opinion on firefox preview browser?
Looks good enough to me... What conditions should a browser satisfy to be good for you?15
Twitter disclosed a bug on its platform that impacted users who accessed their platform using Firefox browsers.
According to the report of ZDNet: Twitter stored private files inside the Firefox browser's cache (a folder where websites store information and files temporarily). Twitter said that once users left their platform or logged off, the files would remain in the browser cache, allowing anyone to retrieve it. The company is now warning users who share systems or used a public computer that some of their private files may still be present in the Firefox cache. Malware could be used to scrape and steal this data.2
Why is it that Browsersync works so much faster and cleaner in Chrome then Firefox. I want to dev in Firefox but Chrome is seriously tempting me with it's faster refresh rate with HTML and JS.
Google I want to hate you and dammit sometimes I just can't. 😫3
I find myself using explainxkcd more often on my phone...
Because Firefox doesn't show the whole title text...
Just installed Firefox Klar on my Android and really love it. Any suggestions about cool privacy apps?9
I've been using Firefox mobile for years and still cannot save a page as HTML
YOU ARE A F*CKING WEB BROWSER! CAN'T YOU JUST LET ME SAVE IT AS HTML! WHERE IS MY SAVE-AS BUTTON?
no problems with PC version though
*sigh* I hate it, but I'm leaving firefox mobile for Chrome2
Chrome vs Firefox ram usage. Chrome running 1 tab (moodle) and Firefox a blank startup tab. I was genuinely surprised to see Firefox using more than 50% more compared to chrome. Both browsers are 64 bit and chrome has perhaps 10 extensions while Firefox only 510
Anyone here banks with ING? I got fed up with their main color, rgb(255, 102, 0), and wrote an add-on for Firefox to change it to black. Their website looks much more professional in black, not to mention easier on the eyes3
curse you Firefox!!
Strangle yourself and die in a corner...........
For the longest time, a div was not centered vertically in Firefox even though it worked perfectly fine in Chrome and Edge......
Set parent height (who is using flex) to 1% and boom, it works now as expected.....
Firefox developer edition flawlessly installed on my laptop, but the pc at work just tells my that the pop key is unknown
I've added the fucking key manually, just work ffs!
I'm running Void-Linux-musl on my ideaPad-320s and found 2 strange bugs, that I've never seen anywhere else.
1. Firefox-DRM-plugin crashes when I open Netflix or Prime.
2. YouTube videos play at slightly accelerated speed, despite being set to normal speed.
Has any one here ever seen those 2?3
So I finally got something to allow me to pipe my network over ssh when I need it.
alias mcserversshproxy='ssh -p <port> -N -D localhost:9999 <user@server>'

Has anyone noticed that lately Safari renders websites faster?
I have been testing the cache on one of our sites. Been testing with Safari, Chrome, Firefox(Clean no addons) and FirefoxDeveloperEdition. The response time from the server is pretty much identical on all the browsers. But Safari is definitely quicker at rendering it out.
Anyone got a clue why? The only thing i suspect is that safari doesnt have dev tools enabled, so that might be the culprit?
And this is why I use Firefox all the time, 3 fucking ads in row with chrome. And try not to click fucking ad when scrolling.
PS. I decided to try googles "interesting news", was it Google(app?), Well was last time.5
