I updated my Fedora 31 Silverblue last night, something I do at the beginning and end of each day, nothing special just my typical flatpak update and then a sudo rpm-ostree upgrade after that was done. One of the ostree packages was Firefox 71, and it had some weird letters that I can’t remember anymore at the end of the package name. I always like to see “What’s New” in Firefox so instead of shutting down and going to sleep I did a restart so I could open it up and see.
It opened up and and I went to the Help > About Firefox > What’s New. 71 had been released that day, 12/3, which I thought was interesting because usually Fedora is a day or two behind. I closed out and forgot about it, then proceeded to stay up and install pcsx2 from flathub in the command line. When I tried to open up Firefox again to get a rom from my cloud service (I’ve kept the games I love over the years and installed them intermittently), nothing.
I’ve tried Firefox about a dozen times since and all I get is the “Firefox” listed near Activities with a spinning wheel for about 10 seconds and then nothing. In the next text is the log I could find using “journalctl | grep -i firefox” if anyone smarter than me can figure out why I’m having problems.
