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.

Good morning. I unsubscribed from all communication from Mozilla Firefox. I clicked the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email I received and yet, since this past Saturday, I am STILL getting email from Mozilla. I even changed my email address and unsubscribed again but since Saturday there are 3 more emails from Mozilla in my mailbox. I want it to stop but there appears nothing else I can do, I already unsubscribed from everything I could find. Not really a fan of unsolicited email and I don't give my email address out because of it. I don't expect it from Mozilla which is supposed to be all about security and privacy. I am not subscribed to firefox account tips. I posted a few images to show what I am talking about.

Thanks

Users send us their PDFs which we are made available from our website. One such PDF appears blank when displaying it with the built-in Firefox PDF viewer. If the same PDF is downloaded from Firefox, the PDF appears fine in Adobe Acrobat. The downloaded PDF shows a blank page if opened directly in Firefox. The same PDF renders properly in Chrome, Edge, and IE.

I'm using using the latest version of Windows 10 and the latest version of Firefox (which is 90.0.1). We've had other PDFs experiencing the same issue. I've tried different computers, cleared temporary Internet files, and restored Firefox settings to default. Nothing seems to help. We'd like to use the built-in Firefox PDF viewer if possible. Any suggestions?

I open and print pdfs in Firefox frequently. In settings I have it set for a pdf to open in Firefox, but this past week on all pdfs the text is now rasterized when printed. If I change the setting to allow the pdf to open in Acrobat I don't have this problem, but I am printing pdfs so often that it is a nuisance to have to close another window when the pdf opens in Acrobat. I noticed that Firefox did an upgrade last week and I wonder if there is a setting anywhere that I can change so the text isn't printing rasterized? I cannot seem to find a setting anywhere. Any help is appreciated!

Как вы можете мне помочь? Я сам не знаю. Сама проблема в том, что открываешь сайт(любой сайт, вообще без разницы) и ничего не происходит, новая вкладка конечно открывается, но дальше ниче не происходит при этом в адресной строке сама ссылка есть и все равно ничего не происходит... Проблема решается конечно просто, просто сиди и обновляй страницу, однако спешу сообщить сие действие тупое, так как зависит от твоей удачи на сей день(ебать меня в сраку). Аргумент, вот сижу я и листаю ленту, да?, в общем хочу музыку послушать и, естественно, открываю спотифай чтобы словить расслабон, но там парил на поверхности воды огромный болт! Мне пришлось обновлять чертов спотифай точка ком на протяжении 10 минут, послушать музыку, я человек простой и после данного инцидента начал материться и материть огненную лисицу, а в частности их программистов, не предусмотревших такой казус. В тот день я так и не смог послушать свою музыку... Насчет браузера стоит он у меня на ПК уже порядка 3-4 лет, такой головки от члена не было в начале моего опыта с браузером. Последний год или полтора года это случается со мной ЕЖЕДНЕВНО и я крайне недоволен, это очень обидная вещь рушащая мое очко. Интересный факт, сам этот баг случается всегда после очистки кэша, что очень надоедает, потому что кэш очищается регулярно. Надеюсь что это хоть кто-нибудь прочитает и услышит мою печаль. И очень, очень надеюсь что мой высер никто не удалит(because its on russian we should delete it, yeah great plan pal) и помогут с данной проблемой, ведь именно это каждый день трахать меня в очко без смазки бесплатно без регистрации и смс.

I have been unable to watch youtube videos in Firefox for a few days now. They simply stop after irregular intervalls and if I resume playback manually the video lacks any kind of sound I've noticed the same problem on Floatplane today. Here's what I tried to resolve the issue.

1. Launch Firefox without any Addons. 2. Disable hardware acceleration. 3 Reinstall Firefox and delete all profiles except for the latest one using the profile manager. 4. Installed the latested Nightly Build of Firefox.

Nothing helped. I've switched to annother browser for the time being. I hope this issue can be resolved

I am wanting to deploy Firefox v90 on Mac at work. I need to have the proxy set as auto for all users as some of the machines are macbooks that are taken off site.

In windows you just need to edit the mozilla.cfg and set proxy type to 4

On the Mac there only seems to be a prefs.js in the user library

Something needs to be in the application content folder...

How to set location of temporarily download files Firefox linux

Under Ubuntu. If an application is set to be the default file handler for a certain type of file, Firefox will allow you to open such a download directly in the application. To do this, it saves the file in a temporary location, and then hands over to the application. The problem is that the location firefox uses under Linux is /tmp and modern snap and flatpak desktop apps are not allowed to see /tmp.

For instance, a .deb file is an installable software package. Ubuntu naturally uses the Software app to handle .deb files. But Software is a sandboxed snap app, and it won't open files in /tmp

The workaround of saving files and opening them from the app works, but it defeats the purpose of having registered file handlers.

And I do not know how to get firefox to save temporary download files somewhere else. I can't find any relevant configuration option.

I tried editing the firefox launcher:

env TMPDIR=/home/tim/tmp_firefox firefox

but it still uses /tmp

Hi, whenever I start Firefox up, one of the tabs randomly closes. This happens both with tabs from last session as well as newly opened bookmarks. Both on Windows 10 and Linux (MX Linux, Debian 9). Only one tab has to be "sacrificed" apparently, so I usually open the last bookmark twice.

What could be causing this? I attached what Extensions I'm currently using.
