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.

I use blogspot blogger in firefox. The operating system is ubuntu 18. I use the editor of blogspot extensively. While in the middle of a sentence, if I press 'Home key', the cursor goes to the start of the page. This is just like using 'ctrl + Home'. But I want the cursor to be at the beginning of the sentence. Could you please give a solution to this problem. Thanks.

Hello,

I have trouble with restoring previous windows and their tabs from my older sessions.

Until recently I could find the sessions that were previously closed by clicking on CTRL+Shift+N. This would restore up to 10 windows closed in previous sessions (a number I set-up in about:config browser.sessionstore.max_windows_undo).

Now I cannot restore older windows any more besides those that were last closed after exiting Firefox and the Recently Closed Windows and the Recently Closed Tab menus in the Library are always empty.

Note that under privacy, the I have a setting to remember history.

My system: PC, Win 10, Firefox 86.

Thanks, Tony

Hello, Let's start with 'I'm not a great techie' - I have looked for the answer to my problem but either can't find it or the reply is too complex for me. I'm using Firefox 86.0.1 (updated 13 March I think) on a Mac. Recently Firefox has been crashing a lot and I used 'Restore session' to restore my tabs (7 windows, 111 tabs). I used Restore Session because the Tab Session Manager app has been stuck on 06.02.21 for ages (6 windows/50 tabs, for some reason it only shows that session, and nothing since). This morning I had to restart my Mac and this time Restore Session only restored the last two tabs I opened, maybe because I have been tinkering with Firefox preferences in order to solve the problem (trying to find out where the Tab Session Manager backup folder was for instance, which I couldn't). So my question is: how can I restore my olds tabs of 7 windows/111 tabs? Ideally with the session I am using now, which would make it 8 windows/122 tabs in all) And I have an additional small query: in my attempts to solve the above, I clicked the small red 'Autosave browser exited' (on the right of 'Add tag' in Tab Session Manager) in order to see if that helped. I must have clicked the small X because 'Autosave...' disappeared and I can't find a way to restore it. My thanks to all of you who help nincompoops like me.

Hi, I need some help about a feature I'm searching for in Firefox.

I usually have a lots of tabs, sometimes for several usages (work for project1, work for project2, entertainment, ...). I finally have some difficulty to find all tabs back for a specific usage (I configured Firefox to remember my tabs at closure).

I though of something that would be useful. I mean I would like to define several "workspaces" in Firefox with dedicated tabs. Then, when I need to switch from one set of tabs to another, I would simply need to change the workspace. And that's all.

I saw a little about profiles, but I don't know if that's what I'm searching for.

Thanks for your help !

We recently uninstalled Office 365 and since the Firefox has not been working properly. The application launches normal but nothing renders on the page. Typing into the search bar yields the expected search suggestion but clicking on them doesn't show the page and shows the correct URL in the address bar. Even tired getting to the about:config with no luck. Even tried reinstalling.

Yesterday i logged off as usual and everything was fine and i could log in in many webs without asking me my password again, today i start computer and all webs ask me to log in, i can see in google mail accounts when i choose an account the password appears, but the problem is that i must choose the accounts when yesterday i didnt need to do it. In some webs dont remember what mail account i was using, though in security tab i can check the button to see all my passwords and all are there, my login.json is fine and the key4.db too What is even more weird is that twitter account didnt ask me to log in again, it remembered my account and password but the rest of webs i tried dont So basically i can recover everything but it is a pain and want to understand why happened this and if i can do it without having to go web by web checking what email i used. Remember windows told me i had to clear some space in hard drive yesterday, could that be related?

As part of my job, I need to run JNLP applications. I can run them from Dolphin (KUbuntu's file explorer) or the command line without problem. However, it would be a lot easier if I could launch them directly from Firefox.

However, when click on a JNLP link my application choices are either "cautious-launcher" which does nothing or another unrelated application. This results in the file being downloaded and then I have to go either in Dolphin or on the command line to the downloads directory and run my JNLP application. Lots of unnecessary steps.

Under preferences I can see that JNLP is set to use javaws, but that option never shows up.

I tried setting "browser.download.skipConfirmLaunchExecutable" to true, but that made no difference.

How do I fix this?

I have a couple of users that use a shared email address with the Outlook for Web Application. When this is left open overnight, for some reason, it starts to fill the storage of the PC until the PC's storage is maxed out and unusable. We found that simply closing the Outlook for Web tab in Firefox fixes the issue, until it's left open overnight again and starts filling the storage again.

The issue doesn't happen in Chrome or Edge, both users have the most updated versions of Firefox, and I've followed all of the steps I could find to clear website data. Nothing has made a difference. I talked to Microsoft Support about the issue, and they told me to use another browser, but the users only want to use Firefox (which I understand).

Any help or knowledge with the issue would be fantastic. I attached some screenshots of the memory increasing on the PCs to help show what is happening. Thanks!
