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.

Linux-Firefox (73.0.1 / 64bit) zeigt im VMware-ESXi-Web-Client nicht alle Zeilen der "Virtuelle Maschinen Ansicht" - Im Windows-Firefox (73.0.1 / 64bit) schon!

zB Es werden bei 5 VM's nur 4 Zeilen ("Elemente") angezeigt und man kann die Box auch nicht größer/kleiner ziehen oder scrollen. Im Windows-Firefox macht das keine Probleme!

Stelle gerade fest, diese "Details-Textbox" hier - hier wo ich jetzt gerade tippe - kann ich aber schon (unten recht ziehen) in der Größe (Höhe/Breite) verändern! %-(

Ok, I feel a little funny asking this simple question! Information Blanks used to store the info I had previously typed in, and after an update/reinstall those blanks are now not storing my info. For example, I do Genealogy Research and the Names, Dates and Locations, I typed in yesterday, or previously, use to "Drop Down" when I began to type in the space. They no longer do that, and I'd like to know how to make them do it again.

OneNote 2001 Build 12430.20288, Firefox 73.0.1, Win 10 1909-18363.657, with Firefox as default browser. Clicking on a url in OneNote opens Firefox with no url displayed. Firefox just stays in a blank window and will not close with the upper right X. Closing via other methods work. If a Firefox browser is already open, then the url page is correctly opened in a new tab. Tried reinstalling Firefox. This scenario works with Edge, CrEdge and IE. Tried on multiple installations with the same results.

Trying to comment using Disqus works fine in IE and Safari, but in Firefox I'm told a) I need to verify my email address and then b) my email address is invalid and I must change it. Three different email addresses give me the same error using Firefox on Windows and Mac--but I don't get the error in IE or Safari. What can do to fix this? It happens on any site that uses Disqus for commenting. But only in Firefox, Thank you guys for helping!

So I was adding captions to another YouTuber's video. I felt like being helpful. (Video in question: Playframe's Dark Souls video "Ornstein and Smough") I left the tab open to go to class, but when I came back to resume working on it, the tab locked up so badly my screen went black every time I tried to un-minimize the tab. Eventually, the entire browser crashed -- so badly, that, upon bringing RuneScape up, I was given the alert that my graphics driver had been halted due to an error. I can only assume it was this crash because nothing else of note happened. Luckily, I got the driver updated and everything seems to be good now.

But one question is bugging me: Can a Firefox crash actually cause your graphics driver to straight up fail? Because everything was working fine before this crash.

Within the last couple months Firefox has not started or run like it normally had. With Firefox running, if I am in an email with Thunderbird and click a link to open a tab in Firefox I always get a message "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." Task Manager says it is working and if I go to Firefox I can do anything I want. If I click to close and restart it reloads whatever was open and adds the redirected page. I have uninstall, uninstalled with a complete wipe, refreshed and ever loaded defaults, result is the same. I have disabled and even uninstalled all extensions. Along with that no matter what I do Firefox, on start up, will not load my home setting but reloads whatever was loaded last time. I have turned off reload option and it stays turned off but still the only way to get Firefox to load my home pages is to press the home button. Again, this all started about a month or two ago. Don't know if any major update was done during this time or not.

Alt-Tab while Dragging File - File Dropped Instantly

When I try to drag a file to a firefox window which can accept files (e.g. Overleaf, online pdf editors, Google Drive, etc.) the file is immediately "dropped" when I Alt-Tab from Windows Explorer to Firefox. By "dropped" I mean that Firefox will act as if I let up on the left mouse button and immediately try to process the file.

If, in Overleaf for example, my cursor isn't over the file acceptance box when I let go of Alt+Tab to get to Firefox, then the file won't register as uploaded. If I'm on a random Firefox tab, the tab will redirect to opening the file if it's supported (i.e. a PDF will open the PDF viewer).

Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64-bit). Safe-Mode does not fix the issue.

The issue also applies to dragging freshly downloaded files from Firefox to another window (e.g. Windows Explorer). As soon as Alt-Tab is hit, the file is treated like it was dropped in Firefox and the drag fails.

I have issue only on the Google Meet. After I jump-in on a call, in few mins, I am thrown out and given the attached error message. Also, I am not able to see the screen presented by anyone on the call. I have the flash updated and the firewall setting made similar to the Chrome browser but Meet works in Chrome but not in Firefox.

This is make or break for me as we use GSuite in our organization and use Meet for all our internal calls. Please help me stay with Firefox

Use my Windows account to setup the laptop and it imported family settings automatically. On the laptop, I allowed him admin rights. He managed to install his online games and Chrome, but not Firefox. Running Firefox, pop-up it keeps asking to send email to ask for permission to us app. I have allowed it on MS Account, but it does not work. I can use Firefox on the laptop but not my son. Have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it again but still does not work. It now has also stopped firefox from running on child account on desktop which before that had worked.

Hello. I recently got a new operating system and ever since then images in firefox are not shown until they are completely loaded, unlike before where they were partially shown from top to bottom during loading. I am using the firefox profile from the old OS but I've tried the troubleshooting steps on this link: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/fix-problems-images-not-show including trying a default profile.

The old OS was Windows 7, and the new and current OS I use is Windows 10. I'm currently on Firefox 73.0.1, 64-bit

I've had difficulty finding people with a similiar issue. When googling I'd mostly get articles and forums posts about web developers who wish to make the images on their site either not show until fully loaded, or only load when the users actually sees that part of the site. But that is not what I'm having trouble with. I want the images on the sites I visit to begin to show BEFORE they're fully loaded, dropping down like a curtain.

This may seem like a minor issue but it can become very annoying when you're browsing wallpapers or such, since I'm simply staring at a blank screen for a moment before the entire image pops up.

I hope someone can help me. Thanks.
