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.

Love Firefox, just a little tiny detail that bugs me; my auto play/pause feature on my Bluetooth headphones is not working, while it is working perfectly on other browsers, which support AVRCP - Bluetooth profile.

Does anybody know if developers plan to support this profile in the future or if there is some workaround?

Thanks in advance.

Firefox выходит из аккаунта google, соответственно из ютуба примерно раз в неделю. Нигде такой проблемы больше нет, все остальные входы запоминает и не вылетает из них. Опция "Удалять куки при закрытии Firefox" отключена. Как лечить? Надоедает раз или два раза в неделю перезаходить в ютуб.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox (77.0.1 64 bit) and an up to date Windows 10 installation on an HP Pavilion 15 laptop.

Trying to upload photos and videos via WhatsApp and Facebook causes Firefox to hang (not responding) when choosing files to upload. I get the "working on it" message but nothing else. Task Manager shows the storage usage increasing and I closed the task when it got to 900+ MB. Tried several times yesterday and today with the same result after ensuring all Windows software was up to date.

Anybody got the same issue? Any clues please?

Directing shell-executed links to same desktop?

Scenario: I have defined two different virtual desktops, using Windows 10's ability to create new desktops.[1] As part of this, I have two different Firefox windows. One of them is located on Desktop A, and the second is on Desktop B.

When I click a link in an external program -- for example, Outlook, or Excel -- it shell executes that link. Firefox is set as my default browser, and so it handles the link. The problem is that when I click a link while looking at Desktop A, the link gets opened by the Firefox window on Desktop B and switches my view there, which takes me away from what I'm working on and forces me to move that tab back to Desktop A manually.

Furthermore, this is not consistent behavior. Sometimes clicking a link will cause Firefox to open a new tab in a window in the same desktop I was looking at when I clicked it. Other times it switches to the other desktop. I have not been able to figure out what determines which Firefox window gets the link.

All I really want is for links to open in the Firefox window that's already open in the same desktop as where I clicked the link. Is there some way to make that happen? I'm not sure if this a problem with Firefox or with how Windows handles shell-executing links. It could be either.

[1] This not the same as a virtual machine. For details, see this overview: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-use-multiple-desktops-in-windows-10/

Dear all,

I would like to know whether there is any way to load (some/any) sidebar content (e.g., for the sidebar created by the "Notes for Firefox" extension) as a "large version" into the main browser window?

I was already able to extend the maximum size of the sidebar on one hand and on the other hand I even extracted the files of the "Notes by Firefox" extension whose sidebar I would like to have open in the main browser window. Unfortunately, just loading the "sidebar/index.html" (as this is the "default_panel" of the "sidebar_action" mentioned inside the "manifest.json" file of the "Notes by Firefox" extension) did not work as some (a lot?) of variables are not defined...

So, is there any sort of way to get some sidebar being displayed in the common browser content window? If so, please advice how to do it. Thank you!

Best regards, Patrick

New issue began today on Surface Pro 3. When in tablet mode with no keyboard attached, and changing focus to an input field - the virtual keyboard is initialized and immediately closes and does not restore the browser window to full screen. This is persistent behavior when I change focus to non-input areas and back to an input control.

This only happens in FF. Just applied Win 10 updates. Just restarted machine several times. Reviewed osk settings as per similar post and all are correct. Uninstalled and re-installed FF. Nothing evident in event viewer.

Anyone else encountering this?

I recently bought a graphic tablet (https://www.trust.com/en/product/21794-panora-widescreen-graphic-tablet), and it works flawlessly outside of firefox. However, when holding BigBlueButton lectuers, I need to use it within firefox, which doesn't seem to work. At first I thought it was an issue with BigBlueButton, but now I tried other websites (limnu, cocreate, etc.), and they all have the same problem:

Whenever I move the pen on my graphic tablet, only the first and last 'points' are recognized. Is there a way to increase firefox's refresh rate for mouse clicks? Or is there any other solution?

I'm using firefox 68.9.0esr, 64-bit on windows 10.

Firefox always asks whether I want to save passwords of websites I visit. In case of soem of my personal financial sites, I never want the password saved. In Options / Privacy & Security / Logins and Passwords, I have the box "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites" checked, but I list the sites I don't want saved in "Exceptions." Despite this, Firefox always asks, and each time I have to check "Never ask" again and again. Extremely annoying. What can I do to fix it? Thanks! Best regards, Gedeon

Im a recent convert to firefox, and have been consistently running into an issue with opening websites and links just after opening firefox.

The problem i am running into is when opening a link from the "newtab" page, it opens a blank page with no url. Additionally opening any links from external websites such as discord shows the same errors. It does appear to be reproducible, but only consistently with some websites (being twitter and reddit in my case)

I have uninstalled and reinstalled the normal firefox version, and have also tested it with the nightly builds. Did not fix the issue.

Hello, ever since about 3 days ago, the controls on tumblr have gone missing in my browser. At first, I had it happen in every browser and in the private mode, but after a day of that, it is now only happening in firefox anymore.

Explanation, in case it's unclear what I'm talking about: On every blog on tumblr that you open (URL.tumblr.com, for example https://staff.tumblr.com is the link to the blog of the tumblr-staff if you'd prefer an actual blog to look at), in the top right corner of the page, there should be a few buttons, depending on if it's your blog or if you're logged in or not varying between 'follow' and 'join tumblr', 'edit post', 'edit appearance', 'reblog' or 'like', things like that.

  • I'm not sure if that part helps with solving the issue, so just in case: From what I can tell, the controls use codes of iframe to work.
  • It is not specific to one blog on tumblr, the controls are gone on every blog/page I open.
  • I opened the pages in private mode and the controls are there. When I go to add-ons and disable everything, the controls still are not showing up though, so I don't think any add-on can be the cause.
  • It did work until a few days ago, and I didn't change any settings in my browser during the time.
  • I'm using the newest version of firefox (77.0.1), or at least I'm not getting shown any updates left to do in the 'about firefox'.

All that I can still think of to do is to try to refresh, or if that doesn't work completely un- and reinstall firefox, or maybe try an older version of ff if that still doesn't help, and I would really rather find a solution without taking such big measures, which is why I am asking here.

Is there maybe something else that private mode does that I could try to do to fix this?

Thank you in advance for the answers I might get!

So my friends and my partner like to send me TikToks throughout the day, and before the last update or so, it was working fine; every TikTok would open, and when I pressed play, it would play. Since, I believe, the last Firefox update, I can watch one (1) TikTok per browser session without issue (it won't load, as shown in the image I've attached). At that point, to watch more, I either have to use my phone, close and reopen Firefox, or refresh my browser, which was fine in the beginning, but now it's getting a little frustrating. I've attempted browser refresh, which doesn't remove the problem, and the site works fine without fail on Chrome and Edge, but I don't like either of those browsers since switching to Firefox 6 months ago. Ultimately I'm bringing it up because no one else has. If there's a way to fix it that I haven't found yet, I'd love to hear it. Otherwise, it's still worth bringing up so it can be fixed. Any ideas?

When you reload a page (pressing F5, clicking the reload button, etc.) (rather than navigating to the page some other way), the cache for the current site is cleared and all resources (images etc.) are requested with `Cache-Control: max-age=0` (at least, that's what seems to be happening)

Is there some way to disable this behavior? I thought Ctrl+F5 or shift+reload was supposed to clear cache, but it seems like it's no different than reloading normally?

Hola, he tenido problemas recientemente con Mozilla y otros navegadores. Se me cierran constantemente, se me queda en pantalla negra la PC, o incluso me aparecen mensajes como "Ahh la pestaña falló". Probé todo lo que encontré en esta página: (https://support.mozilla.org/es/kb/firefox-se-cierra-inesperadamente-como-resolverlo-#w_actualiza-tus-controladores) pero no hubo resultado y ya no sé qué más hacer. No sé si es algún virus el problema, pero mi anti-virus no detecta nada. Tampoco son las extensiones, o la aceleración del hardware. Realmente no puedo encontrar el problema.

Estos son los fallos más recientes (como verán sucede constantemente).
