I want to install Firefox 80 to an empty custom folder I made called C:\Internet\Firefox. Upon clicking the installer, it states that I've already installed Firefox (picture 1) and I'm not given a choice on where to install it. I'm not 100% sure where that installation installed but I found a Firefox 80 install in C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox. I don't want it there, I want it in C:\Internet\FIrefox. How do I custom install when the Installer won't give me any choices and very little information?

Firefox is up to date, cache and all temporary files have been deleted, system has been restarted multiple times, have tried disabling ad-blockers and all security...

ALL other sites are working perfectly. but when trying to access evga.com or any EVGA pages I get a blank white page with no errors, just plain white.

if I use Internet Explorer, Edge, or Chrome the site shows and works fine.

what could be causing this issue?

I've been an avid user of Firefox Monitor for the past few months, but recently over the last few days when I go to https://monitor.firefox.com/user/dashboard and log in, I've been struggling to find the button that allows me to add new email addresses. I've searched the support article for Monitor for this information, but to no avail: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-monitor. So I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction?

I used Firefox for over a year, suddenly after an update I imagine a bottom bar has appeared, like "find" and every time I try to type anything in a search bar it jumps to the bottom that becomes pink... SOOOOOOO annoying. How can I get rid of it forever???? Sorry, do not know a proper name for this trouble!!! I wish it was clearly stated if I want this "update" and how I can get rid of it. I stopped updating anything at all at this stage! It drives me absolute bonkers, I am thinking of deleting firefox completely! Yes I use windows7 and love it, do not want to switch to 10. I have no clue what version of firefox I am using, I was updating when prompted, but fed up with this pink bar, like it sits in my livers now!!!

This applies elsewhere, I imagine, but my current problem is "apple.news" links.

I get sent these links but don't use them. (No interest in being under surveillance by Apple.)

I tried to set them up in Multi-account containers, so that I can send them to a ghetto, but at least try to use them. I found no way to do this. (I also found the interface clunky and unintuitive.) (I did find how you set a domain there but redirection is long past by the time you can do that.)

(I'm happy setting the Windows registry, designing configuration systems for programs, and the like so making setting is not a terror for me, please don't answer as if I'm a dufus in that regard. Thank you.)

Where do I make a configuration setting to force these containers to do what I want?

Hi guys, and thanks for your support, ahead of time.

I have googled everything I can to figure this out and have minimized the memory several times in the settings. Yet, time and time again... especially with Facebook open as the page, I get 100% Disk usage and 4GB ram.

How in the world does one page utilize this much resource? How do I fix it?

Hi! I have a weird problem with the browser's search bar. It finds only full words: for example, if I write there only 'prob' it says phrase not found, but if I write 'problem' it gets a hit on this page. It's not a serious problem as it at least works on full words, but my mother tongue conjugates words a lot, and I'd like to be able to search just with the root of the word...

Just now I tried to make a payment to a site but the payment pop up was blocked but I don't have a pop up blocker loaded. I have had a similar experience at various times when I want to make a card payment to sites where my details are not pre stored. I can make payments to the same sites using my mobile so it must be laptop related. Not sure which security systems to check, laptop, browser or Norton . Any ideas? Many thanks Jeremy

NOTE: I have made a video to show the problem, so if my explanation isn't clear, please watch this.

The problem arises only when I try to access the options tab. As soon as I have the options tab open, my PC's memory use skyrockets and doesn't come down, Firefox stalls completely and I have to close FF through the task manager.

This problem has never occured in the past, this has only been happening since a day or 2 ago.

I tried to disable all the add-ons, plug-ins, have the standard light theme. Nothing changed.

I don't really enjoy having to use safemode everytime I want to access the options tab.

I cannot install any add-on as Firefox, provides me (instead "+ Add to Firefox") a button:

"Only with Firefox - Get Firefox Now" (see attached image).

I have Firefox version 80.0.1 (64-bit) installed.

Any idea how to get this sorted out? Would de- and re-installation of Firefox work?

Best!
