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.

Why is it that Firefox changes the default application for viewing PDFs?

I have several machines with Firefox installed and I have one that constantly changes the default PDF viewer from Windows Default to Save - every single day. Very annoying.

Tabs and toolbars never autohide in fullscreen on Apple Mac

OS: Catalina Model: iMac (27-inch, Late 2013) (tested on Macbook pro 2018 and 2011 too) Firefox: 84.0.2

Expected functionality: First expand the window to full screen using the green window control. The expectation is that the tab and tool bars will eventually hide, however firefox implements this - by sliding up when scrolling or just sliding up and autohiding after a short time. The tab bar should then reappear when the mouse move to the top of the screen.

Functionality Observed: Tab and tool bars never autohide. They are always there. The only way to that they hide is when a video (YouTube, Netflix) fullscreen controls are selected. Otherwise they are there on every page and that is not the expected behavior. Id like every page to autohide the top bars (similar to what all tablet/mobile device browsers do).

Settings verified: browser.fullscreen.authide= true (see image). Hide toolbars is checked (see image).

Issue I have found posted on this do not provide a concise reason as to why this behavior exists when all settings are properly set.

Hi, I use FireFox (edit - 82.0.4 from LM repos) for my browser when using Linux Mint (I use it on WIn10 as well but this query is specific to LM). I use ClamAV for virus scanning. ClamAV has found Js.Coinminer.Generic-7132237-0 in /home/username/.mozilla/firefox/puhh983l.default-release/extensions/adblockultimate@adblockultimate.net.xpi I've searched and found some mention that it might be a false positive but nothing confirming that info so far from my searching. What have I done so far: Done a fresh reinstalled of ClamAV following the ClamAV install procedure. Checked ClamAV is up to date by checking log files and latest available on the ClamAV website. Done a fresh install of FireFox Reinstalled add-ons one by one. ClamAV only finds the Coinminer once Adblock ultimate is installed/added. I'd like to keep Adblock ultimate as it does what I want it to do easily and efficiently but am happy to remove it to avoid the coinminer (if it is a problem and not a false positive) Can you help or have any advice. Thanks

Hello there,

I am using Firefox 84.0.3. When I type in the search bar suggestions show up that's ok but I feel a little awkward when I have to press Up/Down arrow to focus items in search suggestion list. Instead want to use the Tab key. If i want to change the search engine i can use Alt + Up/Down arrow.

Thanks.

Addon windows in the Overflow menu are limited or fixed in size and therefore some addon functions are inaccessible or hard to use. Usually I would just middle-click to scroll sideways but with some addons this is not possible (eg. LastPass only shows the "Upgrade to Premium" part and nothing else if it is in the Overflow menu). I love the minimalist black&white look of my current Firefox setup so having the red LastPass icon outside of the Overflow menu would ruin that. Other addons just look bad with all that extra white space, like Windscribe (which should have a very small Addon window).

Is there some way to change the size of the addon window or report this as a bug to have it behave like addons should?

I have a web-based app which I use firefox to open. I use multiple tabs like for opening and printing pdf & having multiple modules from the web-based app. The issue is some users are clicking on the firefox icon even though firefox is open & it opens another session or window of Firefox. What I would like if someone clicks on the Firefox icon and it is already open to just display that session of firefox that is open & not open a new window/session. My issue is we have 5 and 6 different windows for the same web app & it's causing some issues. All links should open in a new Tab which they do now but if I can find a way to stop firefox opening twice it will solve my issue.

I'm looking for an extension that I presume exists, but I'm not able to find it: I want to rate websites in the way photo apps allow you to rate your photos, i.e. assign a number of stars to them.

Like https://mozilla.org ★★★★☆

One use case: I'm comparing products where I don't necessarily find something so good that I can come to conclusion now, so I need a way to save it.

Do you know such an extension or have good ideas how to search it?

1. The layout is shoddy, makes finding bookmarks very difficult. 2. The scrolling speed is way too fast, I try to scroll up or down and it goes all the way to the top or bottom.

Please fix.

I recently made some custom icons for my top sites: uploaded them online, added the custom image url and they looked great. But they don't seem to be working anymore, I only had them for a couple of days and can't think of anything I might've done for that to change.

I can add a different image url and it shows up, in fact, I set the icons both in Linux and Windows and they still show up in Windows. I attached a before and after, what's going on? Thanks in advance
