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.

My company has a site that asks you to log into your office 365 account every time you try to log on. This used to work but I may have adjusted the settings on my Nightly and accidentally broke the login. I can get the login option on regular Firefox but when I try on nightly it gives me an error stack as if just denying the website to ask me.

Here is the URL: https://licensemgmt.sentryone.com/

If you get a Microsoft log in pop up it works for you, it doesn't even give me that option. What could be going on here?

I created a Firefox account when the Windows browser suggested it would sync passwords across devices... but it doesn't do that when I'm logged into both.

My logins were created in the Windows browser, including after being logged into my Firefox account, and everything works fine there; however, when I sign into the account on the Android app, no passwords were synced even though Logins is checked in account settings and Synced is constant and automatic (last was 3 minutes ago). Manually syncing doesn't add the logins. The only logins it remembers is ones I save after typing in the username and password while using the app.

One web search tells me that having a master password on the Android app prevents logins syncing... which makes no sense to me. The whole point of the master password is to prevent others from getting into those accounts should they somehow use my laptop or phone, which happens sometimes with people I trust (and could happen with others).

Can someone explain this please? I don't understand the point of logins not syncing when there's a master password; this basically defeats my reason to use a Firefox account in the Android app, and I see no reason to fragment the experience.

Sync is set up correctly between my iMac desktop and MacBook. I changed passwords this evening for a website on my mac desktop, but after several minutes the website saved passwords on my MacBook had not updated yet. I refreshed the saved logins page on my MacBook several times, but no luck. I started with a new tab and checked the saved logins again but they still had not updated. I eventually went back to preferences, to sync, and selected sync now, at which time they updated instantly.

How many minutes should it take for Firefox to update passwords automatically on its own across all devices without manually having to select sync now? The help pages indicate that sync should update changes automatically when Firefox is open, but after 10 minutes that did not occur on its own. I have high-speed xfinity internet service with excellent wi-fi capabilities, so there was no problem on my end. Thank you.

Hi all. I have been using thunderbird for many years and it has been perfectly fine on the whole. over recent weeks I have noticed that when I reply to an email the small reply arrow that proceeds the subject line sometimes does not appear at all, sometimes it appears and disappears after a few seconds, most times it appears and then will disappear when I go away from, and then return to, the folder. Older emails are not affected and still have the reply status displayed. Also. . . .strangely the odd email will retain it's arrow though I do not see a pattern why they should in any way be different to others!

So far I have run in safe mode and it makes no difference, re-made the global index file and it makes no difference. I also made a new profile and still the same issue.

I don't run many addins and have tried disabling them all and it makes no difference. The emails are IMAP configuration.

Has anyone got any suggestions??

Hey everyone, So despite the setting changes on Languages and Appearances to choose designated fonts for a certain language, the (standard) font comes out weird.

I think I'm having the same issue as this thread: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277075#answer-1293438

After reading through the thread I used the Chosen Solution's method to find out which font is messing up: ST Heiti SC Medium. Then I tried using MattP's method of adding Korean(the font im having trouble with) to the list of "Choose your preferred language for displaying pages", but nothing would change.

What should I do? How can I change the font or the parameter used for rendering?

PS - even the texts on the Tabs are displayed with the same ugly font.

I have upgraded to latest version of Mozilla but am getting the "video unavailable. this video is restricted" error message when trying to play some but not all You Tube videos. I have to copy and paste them in Safari in order to play them. THis is for an individual, private person, not a company so there is no administrator. Other posts have had this same problem but no one has provided an effective resolution or clear explanation as to why this is happening and how to resolve. I assume this is a Firefox issue since there is no problem playing the videos on another browser. Suggestions please

Now print to the label printer making sure it is set to 6x4 in prefs. The letter size printer is now printing in 6x4 inches - WTF? Look at about:config and you will see the settings have actually been changed for the letter size printer! THIS HAS BEEN BROKEN FOR YEARS. How the heck do you use two printers - like if you have to print labels and invoices if the setting change themselves whenever you print?
