I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Some sites use alias or shorten, the bar at bottom used to show the actual page info before you click- I think it's safer.. Now that bar auto-hides- I would prefer it remain visible all the time in windowed mode (don't care about full screen)

Is there a setting to put it back? I can't screenshot b/c it disappears unless mouse is on some part of the page.

I downloaded my browsers from the developer sites. I have two Firefox icons on my workspace - one on the desktop and one in the taskbar. Although they appear to be the same icon, they each open two different versions of the Firefox browser. The desktop icon opens the 32-bit and the taskbar opens the 64-bit. I don't like the consistent overriding of my preferences when I open the 32-bit version I often open the browser to find my bookmark toolbar has been deleted. Over and over. Recovering my bookmarks bar is time-consuming and tiresome The 64-bit version has been consistent. I wanted to create a 64-bit desktop icon and have not found a way to do it. When I try to create a desktop shortcut for the 64bit Firefox (it only appears on the taskbar), I have mysteriously got Opera icons for each try. When I create a desktop shortcut from the open home page in the Firefox browser, the shortcut appears with the Startpage or the Opera icon. I learned that icons have their own folders.... so I found and opened one for Mozilla Firefox -but the folder has only three Opera icons and one Startpage icon. I have no idea how the taskbar 64-bit icon has kept its original Firefox appearance from the original install, nor how the 32-bit icon in the desktop has also maintained its appearance. I cannot find any other icon folders in any of the other Mozilla folders. Any suggestions short of starting over with uninstalling the lot and reinstalling?

I work in IT for Cisco (even though my account is using my own email). We have over 100 cases raised where users have updated to V82 and then cannot load Firefox.

We have 2 fixes currently:

1 Downgrade Firefox - but we don't want to do this. 2. Load a new profile.

Is there anything else we can check on. All our users are on Windows 10 Enterprise, there are several versions used from 1803 to the latest, we have a spread of Windows 10 versions where this issue is experienced.

Should there be a better way to resolve this or if there is a root cause that's been found I would be very grateful if this could be passed on.
