On another user's account, cannot go back to earlier FF version, profile files missing. Cannot start _any_ revision, old or current (using OSX Sierra on that user & different FF versions - the shared data you see her is NOT the same ) details here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1356226

I don't see the profiles.ini and installs.ini files within the Profiles folder. I see the general format from looking at good ones in my own Profile.

Don't understand why some are "locked."

How do I re-create them using the existing Profile names, and how do I denote which to startup using (the default folder?) Can't find any Help files to explain.

This is driving me mad, we are using the same physical computer because mine broke, so I start it up off an external drive containing my drive, then I have to shut down & restart on the internal drive to work on it, but then I don't have access to my saved files or to post on the forum.

Firefox can no longer play Netflix movies. Firefox loads the Netflix site. Firefox attempts to play the movie. Then, Firefox can't play the movie. Netflix says "Your browser is no longer supported." This happens every time there is a Firefox update! Do you guys not test your products in development before release? Please fix your product. I tried all your 'help' items.

Some sites are missing favicons making the toolbar useless if I have to use text to identify them. I quit using FF because of this about a year ago as all the solutions on here did not work. Seems as though FF could fix this internally as it is not a problem on Chrome, IE, Edge or any other browser I have used. Why can't FF fix what seems to be very simple problem? Came back and it is still a problem. Again all the listed fixes that I have to initiate, have not worked. Why can't FF fix this through an update. I am not the only one who has this issue and it is exclusively a FF problem. Not a computer expert but this seems to be a VERY easy fix via updates especially since it has been an issue for literally years. Don't want to go back to Chrome as I like all that FF stands for, but... Thanks for reading

Hey, my website "www.kosmetikstuebchen-nicole.de" is not correctly displaying in Firefox Browser. In Google Chrome, Opera and Safari there is no problem. You can see the problem on the screenshot. I still ask my provider "Host Europe" if they are able to explain, why during using the Firefox Browser the website is not correct. They just told me, that maybe there might be a problem with the accessability view, but they were not able to solve the problem! Is there anybody who can help me to solve that problem? Thanks a lot!

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

I have owned my Mac Book Pro since 2014 and I inadvertently re-installed Firefox without knowing a new profile would be created. I am not able to load my old profile into the new one. I can see the "old Firefox data" folder and have tried everything Firefox has to fix this but nothing is working. I have lost 6 years of bookmarks!

Anything other tricks to fix this? Thanks!

Recently, I've been unable to view paid for video, for example on Netflix. I get the following error message:

The WidevineCdm Plugin has crashed. FATAL Clpp-Error [Category 6 - Code 6002]: {"browserError":""}

I'm using a macOS 10.95 and, says Firefox,:

"Note: The current version of Google Widevine is no longer compatible with older macOS versions such as OS X 10.9 and 10.10. Only macOS versions 10.11 and above are supported."

So my question, since it seems my mac is no longer compatible with Widevine, is whether there a way for me to watch video on Firefox? Perhaps with another plugin? Or no plugin? Perhaps this is an issue to take up with Widevine?

Thanks in advance.

It would seem that Mozilla has not yet created an official portable mode for Firefox(Seriously, after all these years?!?). It needs one in a bad way.

Now when I say portable mode what I mean is that the Firefox EXE runs from the folder it's in, using profiles that generated and exist in that same folder and NOT in the user profile. This functionality is needed not just for easy portability, but also for easy migrations from one system to another or one installation of OS to another.

While the portability mode should be exclusive to the platform FireFox is being used on(IE Windows vs Linux, etc), it should be seamless transition otherwise.

Before anyone chimes in and says this is not possible, please don't waste your time. Forks of FF have been doing so nearly effortlessly for more than a decade while maintaining perfectly functionally and security with the same usability.

So Devs, can you please make this happen? We the public would ever so grateful.

Additionally, can we get some fine grained controls over the appearance of UI elements?

This double spacing nonsense is irritating.

Then there is the Extension Icons labels. They've been gone for a while and they need to return, or at least an option to enable them if we wish.

Next we have the "Home page and new windows" option in settings. Those two options should not be combined. When I open a new instance of FF, I would like to open a blank page. I don't want any navigation happening until I click something or type in an address. I expect FF to sit and wait for my input. Then when I click the "Home" icon button does it go to my define home page.

Next problem we have is the auto update feature. This seems to have become an incredibly nasty feature and behavior. For example, I recently updated to Windows 11. After migrating my previous install of FF to it, it swiftly and without ANY warning or user prompt at all updated itself from 78.15.0esr to 91.3. This was NOT desired So how about to folks show respect to us users by ASKING if we want to upgrade! Had a prompt appeared I would have swiftly canceled. Updates should ALWAYS be at the choice and involvement of the user, not at your whim. I had to spend 40minutes manually backtracking and recopying, which was unpleasant.

Please note that while my above statements have had some negativity to them, I am a ardent supporter of Mozilla and will continue to be. These above points are that of increasing frustration. I am of the school of thought that we the users should have complete and fine-grain controls over every aspect of how our browser operates, whether it be UI elements or nitty-gritty functionality.

I look forward to responses by members of the dev team.

Thank You, Lex

Very similar to posts in previous years that are archived and largely unanswered or not up-to-date.

I opened up my a Firefox session to find out I was logged out of sync and when I logged back in all my passwords where erased.

This has been stable for the last 10 months and Firefox has provided a reliable password archive with nice syncing features. However, this is a deal breaker, since I cannot loose the login credentials randomly.

No updates. No conscious logging out. No disregarding warnings etc.

Anyway to revert or retrieve?

Is there anyway to set my own zoom levels, like we used to be able to, you know, like 10 years ago?

I used to have my own zoom levels that went up 10% all the way to 300%, then started 25% intervals.

For example, my levels from 100% to 200% looked like this: 100%, 110%, 120%, 130%, 140%, 150%, 160%, 170%, 180%, 190%, 200%.

So, is there any way to do this now?

While there are some things I like about FireFox, I use another browser for the vast majority of my browser use... I'm running Linux, and it seems that FireFox has locked itself in as the default browser... Since I am unable to modify that condition, is my only recourse to uninstall FireFox? Or, am I missing some secret handshake?
