My first question on Ask Ubuntu: Why is firefox trying to access fstab and how can I stop it?
So I had to repave my primary workstation to fix a problem with my ZFS configuration (my ashift setting was causing problems) and things are mostly back online, but I wasn’t able to print from firefox for some reason.
I think the problem was that I had installed firefox prior to adding the printer. Anyway, long story short, this command seemed to fix the problem for me:
# snap connect firefox:cups-control
Well I’m happy to learn that Firefox 105.0.1 restores focus behavior on startup. That’s been driving me mad!
So I read this and this and solved my problem. Basically I bind /temp/download to /media/$USER/download and then I can set the download directory in Chromium and Firefox snaps to /media/$USER/download and my downloads go where I want them. This was actually harder to figure out than it should have been.
A new version of Firefox released: Firefox 88.
I’m not sure what the –window regex is for, but it complains if absent, so I just made it ‘.’. This command will start firefox and make it the active window:
kstart --activate --window . firefox
Today is a historic day! I’m now running Firefox 83 an have enabled the new HTTPS-Only mode!
To disable the HTTP Referrer (Referer) header in Firefox open about:config and set network.http.sendRefererHeader to zero.
