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 I love firefox legacy version and I still use FF 55.3 due the to easy use on my surface tablet, where I could use my finger to drag and highlight the text as if my finger were a mouse. And I was wondering that could is there a way to make the FF quantum version do the same since I have try it and i find it cumbersome to use, since when I try the drag and highlight FF not allowed me to and the way to highlight is as if I am using a smartphone could you fix it ? And the way the when I try to refresh the webpage in the quantum when I click the address bar and enter it not working could you fix it?

How do I stop Firefox moving the cursor to the address bar instead of focusing on the search box on my home page. The new "feature" means I have to either erase the address bar or click on the search box before I can start a search. It's not a big thing but it was fine before when I had the option to open the home page with the cursor already on the page.

So, i have used the Microsoft Edge browser for some time. Now im back at Firefox due to that the one thing with Edge just stopped working.

I was with Edge able to pin websites to the taskbar (Facebook and Twitter) in Windows 10. This made them work as individual apps, with a small notification on the icon.

Is there any way i could do this in Firefox? My english isnt good, so i have a hard time to search this.

I'm trying out Firefox 85.0 on Wayland (not XWayland) on Ubuntu 20.10. When scrolling a page and letting go, the kinetic scrolling is taking off like a rocket, as though the average user is more interested in reading a random paragraph 5 km down the page as opposed to scrolling half a page down to the next paragraph...

Everything works fine in macOS -- no insane speeds there.

How do I fine-tune this?

Preferrably I'd like to fine-tune the actual scroll acceleration since that part of the experience is also way off and about 20x faster than it needs to be for 99.9% of all scroll actions. If that would solve the above problem by decreasing the speed while increasing the deceleration upon release of the scroll gesture, then even better.

Firefox 85.0 in Wayland (not XWayland) scrolls far too fast when I use scroll gestures on my trackpad. I believe I have the same problem on XWayland too.

Since the values are not properly adjusted out of the box I'm assuming that they can't be adjusted properly beforehand, but then I'm confused as to why I can't seem to easily find where to adjust them myself, considering that that's necessary by design.

I can't find these settings anywhere. How do I do this?

Dear Evernote team, my evernote plugin (webclipper) has disappeared from my task bar on Firefox and I cannot seem to put it back. I have reinstalled the plugin in Firefox (multiple times). So the plugin is there (see screenshot) but the Evernote icon does not show in the task bar (see screenshot). I have tried all I could think of (starting with drag and drop) to bring the little elephant back where it normally grazes but in vain. Could you please help?

Evernote's response Camila (Evernote Help and Learning) Feb 8, 2021, 0:26 PST

Hello Anne,

Thank you for getting in touch with Evernote Customer Support. I'm Camila, and I'm glad to assist you today.

I'm sorry to hear that you are not able to use Web Clipper on Firefox, despite reinstalling it for many times.

If you're currently on Private Mode browsing in Firefox, please know that Web Clipper is currently not available in Private Mode browsing. This feature will be reintroduced in a future release.

The workaround for this is to disable Private Mode browsing, or use another browser to use Web Clipper.

Thanks for understanding regarding this matter.

Best,

Camila S. Customer Support Representative

my dismayed comment De: Anne-Lise Sibony <alsibony@gmail.com> Objet: Rép : Ticket# 3258160 - Firefox plugin has disappeared Date: 8 février 2021 à 09:42:03 UTC+1 À: support-webform@evernote.com

Hello Camila,

Thank you for getting back to me.

I am sorry to hear that evernote web clipper has been designed to demand tracking in order to function. I pay with money for the service and I do not feel it is fair that I have no choice but to consent to data extraction in order to get the service I pay for.

This said, I have for now switched Firefox to « standard » mode but, unfortunately, it does not help. After switching to standard mode, I have quit Mozilla and reopened it, then opened the extensions menu and tried to drag the Evernote icon to my task bar but to no avail.

Can you suggest something else I might try?

Do you have visibility as to when evernote web clipper will be compatible with Firefox, whatever the user settings?

Many thanks for your help,

Anne-Lise

В хроме, опере и даже эдже из коробки работают жесты 2мя пальцами для перехода назад вперед. В мозиле - нет, и как включить это (даже с использованием расширений) - не нашел. В расширениях совсем убогие штуки, вроде "зажми правую кнопку и другим пальцем проведи назад", когда в других браузерах это просто легким движением руки делается. Как фиксануть это? Уходить с мозилы не хочется.

In chrome, opera, and even edge build-in 2-finger gestures work to move back and forth. In mozilla- no, and how to enable it (even using extensions) - I could not find. In extensions, there are absolutely miserable things, like "hold down the right button and swipe back with another finger", when in other browsers it is just a slight movement of the hand. How to fix it? I don't want to leave mozilla.

When I then log in with the stored logins, I still see the 2 accounts marked by the relative password change dates ......., but they are still the same account!!
