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.

YOUTUBE: No Home Page & No Initial Comments Section via FireFox: In YouTube via FireFox the YouTube Home Page and Comment Entry on videos is missing. Why is this? Ever since the dawn of FireFox this has always been missing. Please go use Chrome, Chromium, and Brave. You will see when you select a certain YouTube Channel, you will get a Home Page. You do not get this in FireFox. The second issue that has always been is the fact that you cannot comment on videos because the Comment Entry is missing via FireFox.

FireFox needs to correct this problematic issue. I am using Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia. I have also used Windows 10 and the same problem exist there. I want the FireFox Team to use Linux Mint to see what you get from the FireFox Browser in the Software Manager. Question; is this the same Browser that is currently available via the website? If not, then we have a huge problem with the Linux Team and Linux period that needs to be resolved. Both the FireFox Team & the Linux Team needs to work together to get this fixed.

I would provide Screenshots but I want people to actually go and see for themselves. Go get Linux Mint and install FireFox via the Software Manager. Go to YouTube to see what I am talking about.

Sincerely, KLCJR77 Productions

After update to 79.0 version, (on Win 7), the cursor totally disappear, an so it's really unconfotable to identify what I'm doing... Now it's possible to identify the cursor position only selecting some caracter, using mouse or case key + arrow. I tried to find some question on the web, and founded to set something in the "about:config" system, but in my list, for example, don't appear the "ui.caretWidth" row. I saw this problem appeared in 2017 too. (It appear NOW, for me...) I don't think to be the last person to use win 7... Can someone helps me?

The Intel TRUEKEY add-on/extension will no longer work in Firefox 79.0. It still works in a previous version but Mozille has made rolling back extremely difficult.

Suspiciously, now TRUEKEY ONLY works in the Edge browser, which I do not want to use.

Is Mozilla aware of this problem and the fact that until it is resolved people are being forced to use the Edge browser if they want to be able to use their password manager?

The symptoms are: the add-on loads successfully, you see the Truekey icon in the menu bar, but when you click on it, NOTHING. The app does not launch, there is no activity whatsoever.

Help would be appreciated. Barb

I use Linux Mint with separated root and files partitions. I always select the downloads to be saved in the files partitions, but a copy is also saved in the root. I discovered this when I clicked in the "open containing folder" icon in the downloaded files list. Is this a bug or a setting? How can I make just one copy of the file? Thanks!

Unable to Sync Notes by Firefox

I recently did a clean install of Window's on my computer. I have a Firefox account and am signed into sync, but I don't know how to get my add-ons and settings back. When I go to "Manage Your Extensions" I see all of them there, but I don't know how to make it so that their icons are viewable in my Toolbar where I can click and use them. What few add-ons I am able to get to show up in the Toolbar I got by either going directly to the add-ons website and installing from there, or by uninstalling them via the add-ons Manager page and then reinstalling. Which in my opinion defeats the whole point of having a Firefox account and sync activated.

Of critical importance is my need to get back the information that I had stored in Notes by Firefox. I was finally able to get the add-on to show up in the Toolbar buy following the above mentioned steps, however I am unable to sign in to Sync. Below I have listed each of the step I take along with attaching screenshots. 1) Click on Sign in to Sync - This opens a new Firefox browser window that prompts me to enter my email to continue to Notes. 2) I enter my email and click the blue Continue button. 3) I enter my password and click the blue Sign in button. 4) I enter my Two Factor Authentication. 5) The browser window that opened when I clicked Sign in to Sync closes and I'm back where I was when I started the Sync process, but now instead of showing Sign in to Sync Notes shows Reconnect to Sync with a warning triangle on the left side. 6) I Click to Reconnect to Sync and got through steps 2 - 5 but Notes still shows the warning triangle with the Reconnect to Sync message.

At no point in this process do I get any error message or invalid credentials prompt.

Please help!

I cannot get access to Contacts and Calendar. The icons are on my email page but when I click on them, I get nothing. From what I have been reading, have there been problems since an update? Anyway, I do not have the problem when using Microsoft Edge, but I would rather stay with FF. I am on Windows 8.1. Would reinstalling FF help? Thank you.

Outlook.com (webmail version, formerly Windows Live Hotmail, formerly MSN Hotmail) can be used for writing in multiple languages with a Firefox dictionary add-on for spell-check in multiple language. There seems to be a Microsoft issue and/or a Firefox issue. This issue has just recently appeared (reappeared, actually -- every so often this happens). In short, the "change language" function within the body of the e-mail text no longer works on a PC or on a Mac. The language add-ons (dictionaries) no longer work. Gmail and Yahoo Mail do not have this problem. The language dictionaries do work, though, in the subject headline and in the feedback area to Microsoft. You used to be able to right-click and set/change the language you were writing in. This is a recent issue (about a month). Microsoft says to get in contact with Firefox, although it sounds like Microsoft is prohibiting Firefox to allow its dictionary add-ons to function in Outlook.com (webmail).

Only the options for not logged in show up in the dropdown menu after clicking my avatar on the top right. I can't subscribe to any youtube channels. Sometimes the menu on the left looks like if i was logged out. It started doing that maybe 2 days ago. I uninstalled all addons, cleared cookies and cache, reinstalled the browser but it did not work. It works fine in chrome, i just prefer mozilla. (random channel i could recreate it in)

I have tried every suggestion for blocking videos from autoplaying. I have tried Firefox's suggestions, and everything I found on the web, and nothing works. Autoplay happens every time on Fox. Why can't Mozilla get me a straight answer. I cannot be the only person in the world using Firefox, latest version, who has this problem. And, by the way, the way it seems to work is if you leave the video screen visible it does not Autoplay, but as soon as you scroll down to read the article, and thus the video image scrolls up and off the screen, then it starts to play. This isn't just some fluke and I suspect there is some code in the page HTML that does this. So, how the hell do I get it to stop?

There is print button on the bank site, and other websites, but all that happens when clicked is a blank page. Not a problem in other browsers.

When I tried to follow the printing problem instructions I am unable to actually view the entire Page Set Up window. (I did change the margins once and maybe I didn't reset them properly but can't see to find out.) I also tried restart in safe mode. Still can't view the top of the Page Set Up window.

The white text in the black rectangle isn’t showing up as white (or whatever color I change it to) on Firefox despite the inspector window saying it’s computed as white. It should look like the second picture. It shows up correctly in Firefox on my iPad and other browsers on desktop, mobile, tablet. What could be going on?

I tested changing the paragraph text color too and that doesn’t change either.

I’m on macOS Catalina 10.15.6 and my Firefox text color preferences are set to never override webpage colors. My cache is also disabled.
