I know this is an obscure question but it would save time typing it all in each time.

I would like to create a windows shortcut to launch the profile manager like so:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -profilemanager" - but it says "the name specified in the target box is not valid. Make sure the filename and path are correct." It works fine without the -profilemanager part.

Maybe it would have to be a batch file I'm not sure.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi there,

A while ago a new thing started happening with Firefox. Whenever I go to a login page, and the username and password fields are auto populated because Firefox has remembered them, the cursor is positioned at the end of the username. Directly beneath the cursor is what looks like a droplet, blue in colour. Clicking on it does nothing. Clicking anywhere else on the page makes the droplet disappear, as does bringing up another app and then coming back to Firefox. I am using version 93.0 64 bit on Windows 10. I can't do a screen shot of it as bringing up snip and sketch causes it to disappear.

Thanks for your help,

Paul

I recently switched to a UK keyboard layout (Logitech MX keys with UK layout), from a US international layout. I changed the system settings to use the proper input and it works like a charm on every program I have, except the browser. Even if I have changed Firefox's main language as "English (UK)" and restarted it, it doesn't recognize sequences such as "CTRL + `" follwed by a vocal. Is there any known solution to this issue?

For the last week or so, Firefox on my desktop has opened to a blank new tab screen, and won't load any other pages. It won't even load support.mozilla.org, I'm asking this on my phone! I've had to use Edge on the occasions that I CAN'T use my mobile for the task; printing shipping labels, downloading a better art program, that sort of thing. I'd really rather NOT use Edge at all, thanks.

I just started using Firefox again about a week ago after not using it for months because websites kept insisting I use Chrome. So I now see a lot of changes in FF, and one that is VERY annoying is that whenever I paste something I've copied (usually just a word or several words), FF also pastes a URL. So I constantly have to waste time deleting the URLs. I don't see any setting I can use to stop that. Can someone help me, please? TIA. LNelson1941

I use Firefox and Firefox developer and rely quite a bit on the ScreenCapture feature that used to live behind the three dots in the address bar. Did they remove it? I feel like I've looked everywhere to re-locate it and keep coming up dry.

Anyone else experience the same thing? Thanks for the help!

Firefox updated to 89.0 today, and my newtabpage looks odd. The shortcuts now have really small previews, as shown in the attached image. How do I get them to be full size again (i.e. fill the box)? It was easier to tell them apart at a glance before the update, post update there's too much empty space. Is there something in about:config that controls this?

Thanks in advance!

You've sent me an email recommending 'The Forget Button' but where is it? It's all very well saying how good it is. I certainly don't have one where it is in your video so how do I install it? Grrr so frustrating.

Ditto the Relay thing for burn email addresses. The little video goes on about how good it is but where on earth is the facility?

Soo madenning!

Any help gratefully recieved.
