Version 90.02 D.O.H. unwanted change

I installed FF on my Mac from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ firefox/releases/90.0/mac/en-US/ sha256 dbc08038e2a26017d360bbf366a935084ed0e0914dc50f3e7e419e… (read more)

I installed FF on my Mac from https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/ firefox/releases/90.0/mac/en-US/ sha256 dbc08038e2a26017d360bbf366a935084ed0e0914dc50f3e7e419e5b765c8863. I then performed an update to 90.2 directly via the update notification instead of the direct download and found that D.O.H value changed from cloudflare default to an unknown cira canadian shield.

Why would the default setting change to a unknown Canadian D.O.H. provider when I have a US version of FF installed on a upgrade? See enclosed.

Managing profiles: My Firefox since rel 89.0 crashes several times A DAY. The last time it crashed 6 times in a row then WIPED out my copy and gave me a new copy, BLANK of everything. I am no rookie to Firefox as my first version was 1.0 when I converted from Netscape Navigator long ago. The rub is PROFILES. I have too many to manage now and need to get rid of some but Moz:lla in their infinite wisdom does not put a date, what was the LAST one.... and one has to search to find the LAST profile that has your latest modification, data, etc. I am fearsome in deleting any as they do not seem to be in any order and I get a SERVE warning when trying to delete. Since the new releases crashes all the time, to do critical work I have to resort to UGH, "EDGE' until Moz://a gets a solid release and hopefully STOP TRYING TO COPY EDGE AND CHROME.

Any advise will be appreciated. [except advise to use EDGE or CHROME].

My switch from the release version to ESR seemed to go well, but my history and many of my settings and data, including my pinned tabs and extensive notes used by add-ons, were gone. I managed to reconstruct most of them, but was distressed to find that when Fx updated my ESR version those settings were again gone.

I have again restored most of the lost settings (including the one not to automatically update!) but I know I can't defer Fx updates indefinitely, and I also expect I may want to return at some point to the release version--and I desperately don't want to have to reconstruct my settings any more (or at least more than one last time). I'm not concerned about the loss of my history

Since I'm prepared to note all my settings first, starting fresh seems like a viable solution. I just need to know how (unless you can suggest a better option). I'd be happy with either the release or ESR channel.

When I launch Firefox, it refuses to open My Yahoo, which is the home page I have been using for many years. My.yahoo.com is still entered in Settings as my home page. Even if I type the URL into a new tab, it will not load. I have now switched to Edge as my default browser and it is working just fine. I would like to go back to Firefox, but there is no way I can do that if it wont even let my use my preferred home page. This is the second time I have presented this problem. So far - no response. I can be reached at ... @yahoo.com.

Hello all, I regularly open up pop up windows to do my job, containing lots of column data. Until recently, the columns would squeeze down as small as they could - depending on data field and font size - meaning the bottom scroll bar was unnecessary. However, in last 1-2 weeks(?) the data columns seem happy to spread themselves out menaing I always have to scroll right to see the last few columns. Is there anything like a 'make the columns fit if they're capable of doing' command/shortcut? Thanks all.

I am SO PISSED OFF AT THIS S*IT NOT WORKING RIGHT ON HERE! THE BROWSER IS FINE. IT. IS. YOUR. SITE. THAT. IS. TRASH.

Know under security. The list of where you were logged in. blah blah time ago. So I start logging them out. Then SUDDENLY this PIECE OF SH*T just STOPS DOING IT. Keep asking me the STUPID. QUESTION. WHY. I. WANT. TO. LOGOUT. That my friend is the MOST STUPID THING TO DEMAND TO LOGOUT! WTF! Is Mozilla finally gone NUTS?! I BET I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE. Man Mozilla. Used your stuff since the BEGINNING it was MADE. BUT DAMNIT! DON'T YOU DO THIS "FORUM SUPPORT" Like that DAMN GOOGLE! Argh this is SO STUPID!! ! Oh the BEST ONE is NOT BEING ABLE TO CHANGE THAT DAMN PICTURE ON THE TOP RIGHT!!! /\ RIGHT UP THERE! SCREAM!!! YOU JUST BEAT GOOGLE. Wtf! MAN WTF? Oh I KNOW I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE HERE. YOUR. DAMN. MENU. BUTTON. DOES. NOT. WORK. DAMNIT!!! Put it this way AS OF Today if YOU DO NOT GIVE ME AN ANSWER. Boy you BETTER hope these real experts have the answer. I AM SO PISSED OFF AT YOUR STUPID "KIDDY MENUS" man. WE INSTALL FIREFOX OVER CHROME BECAUSE WE ARE MOSTLY EXPERTS YOU DINGBATS! And for F**K SAKE! BACK. UP. THE. PASSWORD. INFORMATION. WHEN. WE. CHANGE. OR. RESET. THE. SERVICE. SO. WE. CAN. GO. BACK. TO. IT. IF. WE. NEED. TO. Why didn't you think of this already?! Stored backup on the client's DEVICE. Remember. It is ENCRYPTED. Argh. Please someone who is a real expert help me with this. The ones who take their own time. To help. Your all amazing. Wish those asses would have a help staff... Hah. I will give them a break. Google is the antichrist of huge companies with names like Microsoft and... cough copy lifting. Can they NEVER come up with it from SCRATCH? This is like Jeff Goldbloom in Jarassic Park! (I KNOW I sp'ed on that.) Ever notice how ALL the new software "kind of works". Makes me sick. Anyway. Remember him saying they didn't make it themselves. Just slapped a Google label on it.. hahah... Am sure there are MILLIONS OF us that feel that way. I figure he had the perfect description. Who the hell makes the "change your avatar" not work and EXPECT you to TRUST them with ALL your PRIVATE passwords. Logins. And be this moronic! Never thought I would be saying that about Mozilla. Wtf Happened? You hire people from Google? I am feeling all your guys pain for you man. This is some real stupid sh*t! Talking about wasting time when you don't have a beer. I just lost all my damned passwords. Because it did not save them at all. Having the DAMNED ENCRYPTED FILE ON OUR HARDWARE will NOT "compromise" it. WHY didn't you think of this already? I REALLY wanted that beer. I was SO PISSED I almost did something I have NEVER done before. I ALMOST installed Microsoft's explorer crap for Android. Hah. How fitting they put that on Google. That is SUCH a smack in their face. Anyway, here's your image everyone hates to see. I am sure... Go figure. Now that button down there does not work. No. I turned off all add-ons, even the extra protection in Firefox is off. And I can not press that DAMNED "Browse..." button. Wtf man. I really wish I had that beer...

On one computer I have deleted everything from Firefox including the folders within Apps Roaming except for one folder. There in one folder "41A66E7EE5E1" within Profiles which I cannot delete. It holds the files prefs.js and sessionCheckpoints.json which were created at 20/02/2021 and I cannot delete those.

My new installation is dated 24/07/2021.

There is nothing in the properties of those two files to suggest an issue. I do find however that when I seek to change the Property/Security to Administrator (I should be able to do that) I receive a dialog box that "the file or directory is corrupted and unreadable".

Please advise on how I address this.

Since last weekend or thereabouts (17 July 2021) my Firefox on the 3 devices/platforms I use (see title) is not connecting to a specific website. Edge connects and is usable.

There is no error message, the screen in the tab remains blank and the activity indicator stops after a few seconds.

The website address is https://colony.litopia.com . The website is functioning and I have just used it, loaded images etc using Edge - I am a writer and use it every day, usually LOL.

All the other sites I use are ok, as is the main domain https://litopia.com . The hyperlink from the parent to the subdomain also hangs in the same way. I have spokent to other users of the site and they say it is ok, although it is noted as usually being a very slow site.

I have tried connection via cellphone router and wired broadband from different physical locations. Firefox troubleshooting not reporting any errors.

I use adblock on Win10 and Linux and have tried disabling that. FB container only on win 10. All platforms are up to date with Firefox. 90.0.2. I believe the issue arose when I went to 90.0

I haven't shared my data because the devices are disparate.

Comments appreciated, thanks.

Hi there. When watching twitch or youtube on one screen everything is just fine. I do have 2 monitors, and sometimes i watch 2 twitch streamers at the same time. or one with youtube and one with twitch. Everything have been working just fine, but for maybe 2 weeks ago, the UI or stuff around the video\stream im watching is flickering. This only happens when watching 2 videos at same time. It flickers on both. The video itself is just fine, but everything around is flickering, like chat on twitch, or the recommended videos on the rightside of youtube video window. Turning Safe mode on and it stops. uninstalling all addons, and the problem is still there. And still work fine in Safe mode. Havent done any changes anywhere with firefox, and only use 2 addons. And if im watching 2 videos and scrolls down and up on one of the screens, it flickers even more. Hardware Acc is off.

I haven't been able to update Firefox (Mac, desktop) since version 82 because all updates use a font I can't read. Websites are displayed correctly, but bookmarks, most Firefox preferences (including about:config), tab headings and search imputs are as shown in the screenshots.

Today I downloaded version 90 and it's still happening. Please see the screenshots of the Firefox welcome screen, and the font selections in the preferences. The version for the screenshots is a new, clean download using default settings, with no addons or bookmarks.

I don't know if the font is a real language or not.
