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.

I have just set up a Firefox account. I have used the Simple Tab Groups add-on to manage my tabs. I did this on my laptop, but when I sign in to my Firefox account on my desktop, the tabs have not be transferred over. In fact none of the tabs are the same. I have clicked Sync multiple times. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox, I have changed my account password. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the Simple Tab Groups add-on. If I am going to use a Firefox account I want all of my tabs, and groups of tabs, to be the same on my laptop and desktop.

Hey,

Currently, when the reminder window pops up, only the start date is shown. However for tasks this start date is usually less relevant than the due date. Is it possible to replace the start date with the due date for tasks, or at least show both? I have already looked through the about:config flags, however I did not find anything which seemed like the right option.

Thanks

Keystrokes get sent to old window when opening a new window

When I open a new window (via command-N), keystrokes that I enter before the new window loads get sent to the old window, whereas I would prefer them to get buffered to the new window. E.g., I have my home screen set to the default Firefox screen (where the cursor is set to the search bar), so when I open a new window and immediately type say "asdf", I expect this to show up in the search bar in the new window.

Is there a way to change the behavior here? I've tried turning off all my extensions, and it's still the same, so seems like that's not the relevant to the problem.

(I recently switched to Firefox from Safari/Chrome, where this was the default behavior)

Hey,

how is it possible to disable gradients for the event boxes? It looks weird for longer events and makes it hard to read sometimes. The color at the bottom of the event is what I chose as the calendar color, however it becomes brighter as you go up, which makes the white text way less legible. I would prefer to just have flat colors.

Thanks

Ran into this in developing code for a report that gets regularly printed out.

In Firefox 50.0.2 the following bit of CSS worked

@media print {

  .page-counter::after {
     counter-increment: page;
     content: "Page " counter(page);
  }

}

In my table it will display "Page 1", "Page 2", etc.

But in Firefox 70.0.1 and 72.0.1 what happens is that on the first page it says "Page 3" (or whatever the total count is) and the following pages will just say "Page".

Is this a known issue with some workaround handling?

I was trying to use the inspector in developer tools on the Firefox Developer Edition. It does not really work. It can find the first object you move to and after that as you move the cursor around the website you are trying to locate elements on, it just stops working. I was using version 63, so I updated to the latest version 78.0b9 and the same problem exists. This is consistent across multiple websites. I find this odd because the regular Firefox Developer Tools do not have this problem. I think it is a bug. Can someone please confirm this. I do not think it is possible I am doing something wrong. Somehow I thought the Developer Edition might have even better, more powerful tools, but I am finding it does not even really work. Can anyone help fix it? I would not have the time right now to come up to speed to help the team fix it, myself.

My environment is Mac OS High Sierra.

I have five email accounts in Thunderbird. In the accounts pane, they are in the order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. #1 is my most used email, and so forth. But when I click on "Get messages", they are accessed in the order 4, 5, 1, 2, 3. Accounts 4 and 5 almost never have any activity so I would prefer the downloads go in order 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. What controls this and can it be changed? Thanks.
