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.

I have noticed that the favicons on a website are not being created when I bookmark a new site or when I use a previous bookmark, they are not updating.

They are showing as a world globe when first created.

They used to always work so I can only assume that one of the Firefox updates has stopped this working so can someone provide any information to help get this fixed?

Thanks.

Since updating to version 79 a few weeks ago I get a box coming up when I try to pay for an online purchase with my credit card, telling me to use "at least 17 characters" for the card number, which is impossible, of course. Latest update to version 80 just now has not fixed the problem. Also can't scroll through pictures on my favourite action site, Trade Me. This is malicious, and a darned nuisance.

I may have made a change in my Firefox account (one thing I did was stop Firefox from doing the auto-fill for passwords, etc.) Maybe I made other changes. Following the change(s), I also changed my att/yahoo sbcglobal email password. I had no problem signing back into my email using my desktop on both Firefox/Explorer, but I haven't been able to sign into my email on my android (samsung) phone and email hasn't synced since I messed around with Firefox settings. Can anyone help me?

Thanks so much

Since a recent update i.e. first half 2020, Firefox no longer opens in the current workspace in Linux - as it has done since its beginning many years ago. Instead it opens on a different workspace. Further, there is NO indication where it has opened - only occasionally an icon can be in bold in the menu, but not usually.

So after now "opening" Firefox the user has to search for Firefox on other workspaces. Then once found transfer it to the workspace where Firefox is wanted.

This is a new Bug (Yes, I since it wastes time, attention, and energy it is a Bug to me). If I turn off "Restore previous session" the Bug disappears. Which makes me think perhaps some programmer has "fixed" a problem which didn't exist and created a nuisance. Since I do NOT want to loose the tabs I was using previously then turning off "Restore previous session" is not an option.

If this is indeed not considered a Bug by some but instead a "Feature", then would the programmer(s) make this an opt-in "feature" completely SEPARATE from "Restore previous session", please?

How can this Bug (or "Feature" ???) be fixed and Firefox's historic, many years old, normal (and desired) behaviour be reinstated?

Version 80.0 (64-bit), updated 08-25-2020 on Win !0 home version. Yesterday everything was OK. Today right click "Save Image..." no longer works preperly. I click the command but the file is not created or saved. I tried it over multiple folders.

I cleared the cache and cookies, nothing changed. I tried to do it in Safe Mode. Same results. But it works in a private window. MS-IE doesn't have that problem.

Do I have to download the very latest version of Firefox browser in order to get the new 2.0 version of ETP?

If I do download it, will it screw-up how my bookmarks look so I can't figure out or have to figure out all over again how to use the bookmarks tool, or find a bookmark? Or will my bookmarks format look exactly the same after downloading the very latest version of Firefox browser?

Thanks for any help!
