Why, with Firefox 67.0 (64-bit), does Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit) ignore the running Firefox instance and starts, instead, the default profile to handle links?

Hi, all.

On Windows 10 Pro (64-bit), I run Firefox (64-bit) and Thunderbird (32-bit), each with two profiles.

Until this afternoon, when Firefox updated to 67.0, clicking on a link in Thunderbird would open a new tab in the currently running instance of Firefox. If Firefox was not running, it would open "Profile 1."

Now, Thunderbird will only open links in my "Profile 1" Firefox. If I have "Profile 2" running, Thunderbird ignores it and starts a new instance of Firefox using "Profile 1." With both instances running, Thunderbird opens a new tab in the "Profile 1" instance.

I updated to Thunderbird 60.7.0 (32-bit), but it did not change the behaviour. So, this seems to be a Firefox change. Is there a way to go back to having the running Firefox instance handle the external launch of links?

This is the behaviour that I want: clicking on a link, anywhere, will open it in a new tab in the currently running Firefox profile, only opening the default profile if Firefox is not yet running.

Thanks in advance!

I just updated to Firefox 65 and suddenly my tabs are once again up in the gods. How do I get them down below the bookmarks toolbar and address bar? I've tried Userchrome and followed the 2017 video (which was very lcear by the way) that was recommended in Firefox support but it didn't work and I'm at my wits end. I hate this tabs on top thing and just want to put it back where it belongs. Please help?

Firefox fails to display the web UI from my Canon printer properly. It should display as a GUI, but Firefox displays it as a text page. I tried "safe mode" but that did not change anything. The page displays properly in other browsers. Screen shot samples showing a page in Firefox and the same page in Edge is attached.

Firefox 55.0.3, windows 10

The goal is to not accept any cookies except ones that I specifically allow. (For example for my webmail account.)

I am trying these settings:

Accept cookies unchecked. cookie exeptions allow. Tried all combinations for "always use private browsing mode" and "clear history when firefox closes."

Basically it ignores the cookies exceptions. This used to work fine on previous firefox versions, on other computers. The failure described here occurs for installations of firefox 55.0.3 on two different windows 10 computers.

Also, sometimes images and videos are not showing up in Tweetdeck.

The embedded tweets and Tweetdeck images and videos show up properly in safe mode, but not in regular mode even with all of the extensions disabled (yes, I'm restarting after to make sure they're disabled). I've also turned off hardware acceleration and restarted and that doesn't fix it, either. My laptop is updated, and all of my drivers are up to date, and so is Firefox and all of the extensions. These problems started after the big-ass update to Firefox 57. I have "refreshed" Firefox and that still didn't fix the issue.

In the new version of the Developer Edition the options "close tabs to the right" and "close other tabs" are in a sub-menu named "Close Multiple Tabs" inside the context menu. Is there's a way to change this so that they will appear directly in the main context menu? I use "close tabs to the right" often and I find this very annoying.
