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,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Hi, I use Firefox version 89.0.2 (64-bit).

Video on Youtube plays, Video on Netflix works well, Streaming on Peacock TV works too.

So what's the secret to playing a Video (usually with a news article) on www.msn.com. These videos I am using msn.com, because that's where I sign in to my Outlook.com (online) e-mail. Yes, I am behind the times.

(I would have liked to use Thunderbird, but since it did not work straight out of the box, and there was no advice about things like "proxies, IMAP, POP3, etc" from anyone here at Firefox, I could not make it work, hence stuck with the e-mail system which is constantly renamed by MSFT from MSN, to Hotmail, to live.com, to Outlook, to Outlook.Live.com. As if renaming something would make it better...)

If I knew how, I'd be fine to activate "MS Media Player", or that "VLC player" within Firefox. Reasonable people are ok with finding out which lid fits on which pot, and which screwdriver works with different types of screws.

Why software people cannot appreciate the concept of "for this task, you need this tool", and make it simple and clear to do so, that will forever remain a mystery to me.

So, does anyone here at Firefox have the basic pride of saying to themselves: "There has got to be a way to do this!" and then work the problem until it is solved? For example, why can't I "right-click" on the misbehaving video clip, and get an option "Play video via this or that player"? It can't be that hard, you could even have it in a separate window, if that's required for one of myriads of software reasons no one can ever explain.

True Key extension not working any longer. I had issues with it loading where I had to toggle off then back on and it would start, but now it never loads and is useless. I've sent many messages in but for it to still be off after two weeks is not acceptable. I see a lot of questions not no answers from Firefox/Mozilla. Has anyone found anything out?

Hello,

I am currently doing a localisation integration for an Articulate Storyline 360 course into Hindi language. After publishing the Hindi course into HTML5 package, I have used Chrome, Microsoft Edge and Firefox to view the course. Chrome and Microsoft Edge are able to display the Hindi fonts correctly. But Firefox are showing some extra tone marks on the Hindi fonts and displaying the Hindi fonts wrongly.

I have tried to use other Hindi fonts and re-publish the course but the same tone marks issue still appear on Firefox and the Hindi fonts are not displaying correctly. Have also tried to add in the UTF-8 unicode into the html file to make sure Firefox is able to capture the unicode encoding but still doesn't work.

I have attached an image to compare the Hindi fonts on Firefox and Chrome as labelled. Take note of the fonts with red underline. The fonts are showing correctly on Chrome.

Any of you guys faced this issue before? Any suggestions/solutions are welcomed! thanks!!

I decided to delete Chrome and change to Firefox on my Ipad 2 after the installation and in the ensuing day’s my emails from my webmail service would download but would not open. After much tinkering with all my settings and with no solution forthcoming I reverted back to Chrome browser and this problem disappeared and my emails opened as normal.

    I would like to use Firefox but with this unexplained problem that is now a no no. Is there any explanation for this ?

Hello everyone,

I see in my Monitoring System that my Computer tries to logon on the Active directory, but it fails everytime. I tracked it down and now I know, that the Source is Firefox. As soon Firefox is open, it tries multiple login every 2 minutes 2 seconds long on the Active Directory - but I didn't changed any Settings or anything for the Browser. I check every Link befor I enter a Website - its not Impossible that it could be a Virus, but maybe its an Bug or an Setting that changed with an Update or something.

Ok, in my windows it shows as if Firefox is back. Everything sreems yo be there, I can go in to settings, and many privacy oriented alls are there. But still something seems to be off. The icons of the apps in my home page. The color of the page, and most convincing the 23 minutes of HD video i never got the chance to share with anyone. In it I'm going through another almost convincing Firefox site in my Windows

But when i started focusing on details, things were happening (changes in front of my eyes), that would never see in a authentic Firefox site.

I have purchase Amazon cloud (which prompted an "event" between Amazon and Google), so I'll put that tape up there, and invite you to look at it. But. I'm a pragmatist. And after such a long time of blocking your ability to do business. They might have giving up and allowed you to return. If I could get a confirmation by anyone of the Mozilla/Firefox community that Firefox is back in bussiness, then I'll start resetting the site. My 20 plus minutes of the Greatest modern hoax of the mdern times will still going up at my Amazon cloud. And this community will be the first to know and share. This is about Firefox in my windows 10.

I have a MacBook Pro and an iPhone, each with Firefox installed. Neither has a Firefox account set up. In fact I just created a Firefox account tonight just to ask this question. Each browser runs a strict privacy policy and is as locked down as I can get it for the most part, save for a few whitelisted websites to keep my sanity. So theoretically, each browser should be ignorant of the other. However, when I am using Firefox on my iPhone and with my Macbook in front of me, a Firefox icon pops up in the MacBook dock with a little phone in the icon. When I mouse-over, it says "Firefox from iPhone" and if I click on the icon, it opens to the web page I have open on the iPhone. Without a FireFox account or sync set up, how does that happen?
