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, One default Brother printer, one other Brother printer connected just once and a HP printer. Word under Win10 shows all three printers, but Firefox only shows the HP printer. This means I can no longer directly print any emails coming in from Hotmail (Outlook), but have to copy/paste each email into Word for printing as I do not want to print on the colour HP.

Solution found: "Refresh" after "Menu" and "Trouble Shooting" in Mozilla does the trick, but works only once unfortunately. Help!

My Firefox wouldn't load, so I looked and apparently you have to uninstall/reinstall. I did that, but now my old bookmarks/profile cannot be loaded.

I get a message stating "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

Can anyone help? I have years and years of bookmarks I need access to!

Thank you.

Merhaba. Bilgisayarıma format attım. Daha sonra Mozilla kurulumunu yaptım ve Mozilla hesabıma giriş yaptım. Daha sonra senkronizasyon işlemini yaptı. Ama eski verileri getirmek yerine yeni, sıfır Mozilladaki verileri eski verilerin üzerine yazdı. Senelerdir bu hesabı kullanıyorum ve maalesef yedekleri yok. Çünkü senkronizasyonda başıma hiçbir zaman böyle bir şey gelmedi. Eski verilerime nasıl ulaşabilirim?

Got email from Mozilla about what I thought was an update. I ended up, after trying to follow the instructions and now have 2 Firefox apps on my screen. I can't tell which is my original because both screens look totally identical other than locations on the top bar that shows icons for my added apps - they are not identical in order. I don't want to use whatever this new version is because it is too confusing for me to follow so how do I get rid of it when I don't know which is my original????? Please help!!!

Acrobat Reader DC has long been installed and routinely updated, per Control Panel>Programs and Features, on my Windows 10 64 bit Home edition PC. Why does Firefox always think I do not have it installed? Is it looking for an add-on, instead of an installed program? Are there Firefox or Windows settings that affect this one way or the other? This is a nuisance of the very minor variety, but I find myself curious why it persists and what causes it.

I have three devices and one phone. When I make changes on one device I'd like to override the bookmarks on another. But, I'm afraid if I synchronize it's going to just add back the bookmarks that I deleted using the settings on the device that I did not delete or sort bookmarks from. I've been trying to get online and delete the bookmarks that are install with no success. Please advise as to what procedures are for synchronizing successfully so that changes are recorded between computers.

I have downloaded data from accounts into Excel spreadsheets many times. However, my most recent attempt ended up with pages of programming language rather than the actual data. Spent an HOUR on phone with Bank of America only to be told its a Firefox issue -- their "proof" of this is that I can successfully download using another browser (MS Edge in this case). IF this is a Firefox issue -- it's not clear if it's universal (i.e. any Excel file from anywhere -- or specific to banking, BofA, geography, etc.)

I am willing to send the actual downloaded file to someone at FIREFOX -- I am NOT willing to post it on an open forum.

SMALL RANT: IF this is really a Firefox issue, I don't even know where to start -- as I can't possibly know if it's a programming issue with the new version, or some interface issuen with Bank of America or what. I am SO TIRED of having to "fight" to get ANYTHING to work these days -- everyone has firewalls to prevent you from simply talking to a live human being. AI, Voicemail, two way verifications, etc do not solve all problems. Telling me I can "look on your website" is NOT a solution. (I've usually already wasted considerable time doing that). The problem with all corporations is that you do not value MY TIME at anything. LIKE THIS -- why do I have to post on a forum and hope for an answer?

I've had Firefox Facebook Container and Multiple Containers for quite some time. I've also had two Gmail accounts for quite some time. I've always been able to open both accounts, and until recently, been able to successfully open them in separate containers. Something the last week or so has broken however and the two accounts refuse to be opened in two containers. I NEED to keep my work email/browsing/YouTube separate from my home email/browsing/YouTube. The first one opens fine in it's container. The second one, when starting Firefox, USED to ask me every time if I wanted to open it in it's container (annoying, but tolerable), but it worked. NOW when I try to open two email accounts in separate containers, it just refuses to do it. It opens without them in the container - the first one places into it's container, but the second one refuses to open in its own container. I open a new tab in the desired container (the other one to the one that initially opens successfully), it loads to Google with the RIGHT Google account in the right container, but when I hit email from Google, it totally swaps, opening a new window of the WRONG container and loads the WRONG account EVERY TIME. I can certainly change email accounts at that point, but it's then in the WRONG container, so that I have them both open in the same container. If I try to transfer it to the correct container, it just doesn't do it - it opens a new page in the same INCORRECT container.

This is now broken for me! And it happened just the last week. Is it possible that this can be fixed again? This is basic reason for using containers! If you can't keep stuff separated, like separate Google accounts to keep work and home browsing histories separate, then what the heck is the point of these containers anyway?? I may as well not have them.

Hello,

There are many videos online now, some in news articles. I do not want to watch the video, so I scroll past. Then it follows me down the page. I wish it would take the rather obvious hint, I am not interested.

How do I stop this behavior please? It is only meant to artificially increase video view counts and helps no one. It is wasting my time, as I have to click the video to close it, every time.

Please help.
