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.

Hi everybody, I have been using for years Mozilla and the tabs as a useful productive tool to keep the pages/docs which I was working on, always open and ready to be opened. Every time I closed it, it restored the pages/tabs. Today I opened a second Mozilla session just for 1 page, and I accidentally closed the main one, lately I closed the second one. When I re-opened Mozilla, it restored the one-page second session, and completely lost the tens of tabs and the history I had on the main session.

How can I recover that pages/tabs? Thank you very much

Hello.

I'm using the combination of Simple Tab Groups + Firefox Multi-Account Containers. The Twitter stopped to work properly about one month ago - likes, retweets, follows and most of other actions doesn't work (I'm managing 3 Twitter accounts). I'm on Firefox 75.0.

Are there any suggestions?

On NBC, I get a screen reading "Well this is awkward. Sorry, it looks like the video or page you're looking for seems to have disappeared - or maybe it never existed to begin with." CBS simply won't let me play the program I select; it's just a black screen. Since both networks had the same problem on the same date, and it hasn't changed since then, I am assuming it is something to do w/my computer settings on Firefox, but have been unable to figure out what to change. Can you "talk" me through it?

When I reopen a closed tab, I would expect it to open on the last page I visited with that tab. For some reason it has been opening the first page I visited with that tab. For example if I visited the following websites "new tab page -> google -> mozilla support" and then closed and reopened this tab, the page would be google. This has only started happening in the last week or two, so I'm wondering if this is intentional or if there's something in about:config that I can change.

Two different PCs connected to the same network, on both there are no third-party antiviruses and firewalls, and native ones are turned off (Windows Defender, etc.). This is not a single case, there are some other sites. If I understand everything correctly, some sites in this way try to bypass the blocking, that the providers of some countries create.

I can't understand why everything works on Windows 7, but doesn’t work on freshly installed and configured Windows 10. I googled this problem, but so far I have not been able to solve it. The browsers on both PCs are configured the same way, I checked all the settings. Connection settings in the OS are also the same.

Downloaded PDF's don't always contain .PDF file extension and aren't able to be opened without manually adding extension. This isn't always the case, but is consistent with various different websites - e.g., downloading a w9 form from IRS website works fine, but downloading my bank statements or insurance bill leaves me with a generic (no extension file) in my downloads directory.

Hi, I deleted my sync-account because it was damaged, no device was visible.

It looks satisfying for a layman now with a new account, but now i get a message from firefox on startup every time no matter what i click, that there is an old sync-account, pretty annoying.

How can I remove this message, or complete delete the old sync-account?

Hi all,

Apologies for the strange question description, it's an odd issue to describe.

Basically, when I close Firefox, it brings up the "Exit and close tabs?" dialogue. What's odd about this is that it says "You are about to close 45 tabs" despite me only having 5 open (4 pinned tabs, and one additional tab).

Anyone have any idea how to see the mysterious ghost tabs?

Additional information that may be relevant is that I used to use the old Firefox feature that allowed you to organise tabs into individual groups that you could select to just view those tabs, then switch to a different group, from within one browser instance. I'm thinking that when the feature was removed, the tabs that were still open within the 'hidden' groups stayed open, but not visible. If so, any idea how to access them?

Thanks to anyone who reads this, and extra to anyone who can help!

Hey Folks,

I can download animated gifs with no problem. Sometimes when I think I'm downloading a gif file, it turns out to be a png file... and it's only a single frame, like a jpg, instead of an animated file like a gif. Is there any way to save a png animation as an animated file like a gif instead of a single frame like a jpg? Thanks!

My Firefox bookmark icons fail to load. Just a globe showing in toolbar. I did a clean install of firefox and upon importing my bookmarks backup via html some bookmarks failed to update their icon even though it was showing properly on the tab. Even with an identical address it would still be a globe. I tried everything from refresh, clear history, deleting and changing the name of favicons/places sqlite. Nothing worked. Again, this was a clean install. All other firefox sytem folders were also removed prior to re-installing. Program files, appdata, etc. all deleted prior to installing.

After trying some things with no luck I found out that If you import your firefox bookmarks to chrome and re-load the bookmarks in chrome the icon refreshed to the correct one. I did that for all missing icons. I then exported the bookmarks as html, but before I imported them back into firefox i completely removed history and all bookmarks once again, and then restarted firefox.

Once firefox opened I imported the bookmark html from chrome and sure enough it worked. The bookmark icons were back to normal. To test i reloaded the page and even restarted firefox and they were all still ok. There is def an issue in firefox that prevents bookmark icons from refreshing properly. Hopefully the team will take a look into this and get a patch to firefox.

I already fixed the issue but I wanted to post here to report my findings in case this was a bug? For some reason I couldnt create an account at bugzilla either so thats why I am also posting here.

When I'm on a site and it takes me to Paypal for payment, I end up with just an endlessly rotating circle and "Securely logging you in... You activated PayPal One Touch™, so no need to enter your password today"

Supposedly this problem has been solved for prior posts: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277038 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1279904

But, the solutions don't work for me. The "security shield" solution doesn't work, nor does the set to "false" solution.

I do have a solution, but I'd like a better one. My current solution when I get this screen is to kick myself, saying "Dammit, I know I can't use Firefox to make Paypal payments" and then just switch to any other browser.

Version: Developer edition 76.0b4 (64-bit) Problems started recently, when FF is started it hangs. It shows 4 process in the Task manager. I have to sort it in the memory utilization way, such that top is the highest memory consumer. Then I kill the last 3 to get it working back. Also the 4 processes of FF do not indicate "not responding" which is strange.

The killing of last 3 ff process and keeping 1 seems to fix the issue but it has to be done manually every time. Not sure what is making the FF hung in first place.
