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.

(I have Firefox 84.0.2, Windows 10) The "Recently Bookmarked" category disappeared in Bookmarks. When I googled about the problem, it said go to about:config and find browser.places.smartBookmarksversion--and change to default. This is not listed in about:config. When I "Bookmark This Page" it goes into "Other Bookmarks" at the bottom. (I have a large list of "Other Bookmarks.) Any suggestions?

Inconsistent Firefox Instances When Started As User vs System

I'm running Firefox Portable on Windows 10. There is only one executable file in one location.

When I open Firefox as a user, by clicking the icon, I get a different instance of Firefox than if the system opens Firefox [for example, if I click on a link in a different program that opens in a browser]

How do I stop this from happening? I've attached a screenshot to illustrate the differences between the two instances:

1a/1b - User instance does not have pinned tabs, while system instance does. 2a/2b - Despite being logged in to the same Firefox Account/Profile, the toolbar is ordered differently between the two instances. 3a/3b - They're both using the same installed OneTab extension, but they have different numbers of pages stored. 4a/4b - They have a discrepancy in pages and dates for stored items.

I don't seem to have a way of selecting which instance I get manually. If I had pages pinned or saved in OneTab in a System invoked instance, without being aware it is a System instance, and my laptop restarts, I can't resume that instance and recover those pages without using another program or app to invoke it. No matter how many times I open, close, restart, whatever, Firefox myself, I won't be able to get those pages or pins back.

It caused for a lot of frustration, and doubts about my sanity, before I finally realized what was happening, and now I'd very much like to know how to make it stop and operate a unified instance no matter how it is invoked.

Avoid link authorization for opening

Dear all,

I've installed an add-on, "Telephone Number Detection" by "CTI-Telephony", that enables to detect phone numbers on any web page and to trigger a phone app ( ex : Aircall) using the phone numbers detected/clicked.

It works but Firefox always asks me to authorize the use of the phone app (Aircall) so as to open the link produced when clicking on the phone number "Allow this site to open the callto link with Aircall.exe?"

This step is useless since I've already authorized the opening via this application.

Do you any idea oh what options to tag/un-tag so as to avoid this step ?

Best regards,

ET

BSNL HTTP redirect - loss of origianl URL which gets redirected to http://fuptopup.bsnl.co.in/

So I live in India and out here there is a c**t of an ISP called BSNL that provides broadband and landline service. When I browse, I tend to open a lot of Firefox tabs via Google, and some of them could be HTTP tabs. Often I could be reading a bunch of tutorials like this one: http://denethor.wlu.ca/ltspice/ which is quite long and involved. Which means that sometimes I shutdown my browser without having finished with this website/tutorial.

When I restart my browser, I hover over the Tab or scroll them to get back to what I was doing and this is where these unmitigated BSNL b@st@rds come into the picture.

They redirect all HTTP requests to https://fuptopup.bsnl.co.in/dailyFupPlanRedirection.do and I lose my Tab! I can firewall that IP by dropping its packets and that slows things down giving me enough time to hit Esc and cancel what's going on.. or what I usually do is log everything to /tmp and then poke around in log to find my URL by grepping for http://

It's still very annoying - what do I do? I would like to murder the person responsible very very slowly or at least roast their cursed toes over hot coals but besides wishful thinking - what do I do?

(they also do other village idiot type things like redirect HTTP to ads and spyware but I've not noticed that recently, after I complained to the Swedish government, about the Swedish server hosting these gross turds)

A Firefox solution would be ideal since this affects security - the random redirecting of HTTP to places unknown by unscrupulous ISPs run by the local village idiot/DSLAM. (please forgive the rude words but I'm hoping that name sticks in peoples minds - BSNL - Bharath Sanchar Nigam Limited - may the world, punitively, never hire these rotten scumbags)

I have been using Firefox and several addons for years. One of the addons that I have been using for a very long time is "Group Seed Dial". I'm extremely happy with it.

This problem began just a few days ago. I leave my computer on all the time and very often (most often) I will walk away from it for the night with a couple of browser windows open and several tabs open in each. A few days ago I simply came back to my computer that morning and clicked on the "+" to open a new tab - this always opens into my Group Speed Dial page. But that did not happen it just opened to my "Home" page (Google search). I tried a different window and the same thing happened, it seemed my Group Speed Dial was gone. I wend to >Tools >Addons and I saw the Group Speed dial in the "disabled" section. So I simply clicked the toggle button to "enable" it and - the speed dial was back just like before. I thought there must have been some glitch and just went on with my day. The problem is, the next day it happened again, and then today it happened again.

I am using Firefox 84.0.1 (64-bit). I am on Windows 10. During the time this has been happening, I have not shut down all browsers, no updates were announced or shown to have happened. I have not shut off my computer, there have been no windows updates.

Does anyone know why this is happening? I'm worried there is a bug or a virus causing this. I use Windows Defender and Malware Bytes Premium.

Thank you.
