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.

Alt-Tab while Dragging File - File Dropped Instantly

When I try to drag a file to a firefox window which can accept files (e.g. Overleaf, online pdf editors, Google Drive, etc.) the file is immediately "dropped" when I Alt-… (read more)

When I try to drag a file to a firefox window which can accept files (e.g. Overleaf, online pdf editors, Google Drive, etc.) the file is immediately "dropped" when I Alt-Tab from Windows Explorer to Firefox. By "dropped" I mean that Firefox will act as if I let up on the left mouse button and immediately try to process the file.

If, in Overleaf for example, my cursor isn't over the file acceptance box when I let go of Alt+Tab to get to Firefox, then the file won't register as uploaded. If I'm on a random Firefox tab, the tab will redirect to opening the file if it's supported (i.e. a PDF will open the PDF viewer).

Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64-bit). Safe-Mode does not fix the issue.

The issue also applies to dragging freshly downloaded files from Firefox to another window (e.g. Windows Explorer). As soon as Alt-Tab is hit, the file is treated like it was dropped in Firefox and the drag fails.

I have issue only on the Google Meet. After I jump-in on a call, in few mins, I am thrown out and given the attached error message. Also, I am not able to see the screen presented by anyone on the call. I have the flash updated and the firewall setting made similar to the Chrome browser but Meet works in Chrome but not in Firefox.

This is make or break for me as we use GSuite in our organization and use Meet for all our internal calls. Please help me stay with Firefox

Running Firefox, pop-up it keeps asking to send email to ask for permission to us app. I have allowed it on MS Account, but it does not work. I can use Firefox on the laptop but not my son. Have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it again but still does not work. It now has also stopped firefox from running on child account on desktop which before that had worked.

I am at a lose for words sort of. I went on line at the end of February early in the morning 3;30am say and I am getting ready to log into my facebook account and it is looking for me to prove my identity. I pick the right people, the right posts and it tells me that I am wrong and that I have to send in my ID. Now this is not the first time but before my ID was actually in my account. This time it is no ware to be seen zero response from Facebook, so I look into my log ins and it turns out that I was logged into my account in another city and the email for me to get back into my account was a fake link. It was a good think I take screen shots because if you look at my login information the city that had my account was not listed, the emails disappeared from my email account like it never happened. I also think they got access to my laptop as I had passwords in my account that were only these long numbers for website info and if you went there was nothing. I did delete these as there were about 6 of them. I am very security conscious so this is truly freaking me out. I can't contact Facebook they just don't care and they hae zero way for you to contact them. Thank you for listing to me.

Hello. I recently got a new operating system and ever since then images in firefox are not shown until they are completely loaded, unlike before where they were partially shown from top to bottom during loading. I am using the firefox profile from the old OS but I've tried the troubleshooting steps on this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-problems-images-not-show including trying a default profile.

The old OS was Windows 7, and the new and current OS I use is Windows 10. I'm currently on Firefox 73.0.1, 64-bit

I've had difficulty finding people with a similiar issue. When googling I'd mostly get articles and forums posts about web developers who wish to make the images on their site either not show until fully loaded, or only load when the users actually sees that part of the site. But that is not what I'm having trouble with. I want the images on the sites I visit to begin to show BEFORE they're fully loaded, dropping down like a curtain.

This may seem like a minor issue but it can become very annoying when you're browsing wallpapers or such, since I'm simply staring at a blank screen for a moment before the entire image pops up.

I hope someone can help me. Thanks.

I need to find a secure place like Firefox or Mozilla to put my 3 yahoo email accounts and 3 google email accounts, some of the older yahoo and google accounts are in my first and last name and are attached to bills and God only knows what except through those old email addresses. I am computer challenged and that is the way it is, so ideally, I would like to have them in ONE place where I can monitor their Inbox activity and answer the more important things such as patient emails an or problems and the random student loan document telling me that my loan XX qualifies for a .3% interest deduction if I pay the remaining $1,000 off in 30 days.

I would appreciate ANY HELP! Thank You Very Much!!!
