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.

This is just me or Firefox doesn't support drag and drop images to the desktop and download them, and I also can't drag and drop to Adobe Illustrator to edit images and what only comes out is a link, if in Chrome it's not like that

Anyway, my OS is Mac, is it because I'm a Mac so I can't?

building a web site with Wordpress Elementor and Elementor no longer opens in safemode. No progress in solving this – could it be the browser? 52 is the latest version of Mozilla that runs on windows XP.

Thanks!

I've installed two versions of Firefox in one Mac, 68.8 esr and 80.0.1. Though I want 68.8 to work as default browser, when I clicked URL on other apps, new 80.0.1 opened it always. One preference screen, both installations say that "Firefox is currently your default browser". No UI to set one as default.

Anyway to specify it?

Firefox was updated last night on my laptop. After the install it started for several seconds then shut down. Every time I tried to start it it did the same. I used the troubleshooting page when it eventually did load which recommended clearing the cache and refreshing Firefox. Having done a refresh before I was surprised to see that there was no Old profile folder (or whatever it's called). After this I tried to start Firefox and received the error message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessable. It was now impossible to start Firefox as all I got was the same message. I thought something had gone wrong with the update, or refresh, so decided to uninstall, then reinstall. This did not solve the problem either. I am now stuck without Firefox on my laptop. OS is Windows 10pro version 2004.

More of an FYI rather than a question.

The Google Cloud Console (console.cloud.google.com) navigation menu has been unresponsive in Firefox for two days now. I tested this on both my MacBook Pro and my Windows PC. I logged in on a Chromium browser, the new Edge, and the menu works. I don't have Chrome installed on either my PC or my Mac, but I assume it works.

Not sure if this is a Firefox issue or a Google issue. Basic things like clearing history and cookies didn't help.

I have a close graphic button which is gray. The button turns to black (#000) on hover. The background is white.

In high contrast black mode in Windows 10, the background is the reverse of white, black. The button is gray, which I think is the reverse of its color in normal mode.

But on hover, the button, which is supposed to be rendered with the color reverse of black, is actually rendered black (#000) and turns out invisible in the black background.

The same problem is observed for active and focus pseudo-classes of the same button.

And the problem also exists for the box-shadow property of ::before pseudo-element.

About 3 weeks ago, I started using the Windows Mail App as my email client. Every time I try to click on an email hyperlink within the body of an email, it opens the link minimized in Firefox. I then have to go to the task bar, click on the Firefox icon to maximize and then view the link.

Prior to this, I was using Outlook as my email client. I never had this issue when using Outlook. I would simply click on a hyperlink within the body of an email, and it would automatically populate a maximized and ready to be viewed tab in Firefox.

I tried to reach out to Windows support, and of course, they are claiming this is a Firefox browser issue. They are stating that I have to tell Firefox the way HTM's are handled. However, I don't see such option in Firefox and as I explained, I never had to do this when using Outlook in conjunction with Firefox.

Thanks in advance for any help provided. FYI - if it is of any help, I am running the latest version of Windows 10, and the latest version of the Firefox browser (80.0.1).

I am looking for a bookmarklet, extension or a userscript solution

I have this website (Todoist.com) which is a webapp that has a loading splash screen everytime its opened in a new tab. The only way I know to avoid this constantly loading is to navigate pages on the same tab

Searching all over the web there are solution and extensions to store the current tabs URL to the clipboard but I cant seem to find a single extension to open a URL in clipboard on the current tab

I used to do this through the UI (alt-d, then ctrl-v ) before but I don’t have this option any more.

I can open any link from windows explorer or command line but it is always opened in a new tab or a new window. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Last week, Firefox told me to update my android phone browser. I did & updated it with firefox nightly. I used this opportunity to change my main email address. Then, I decided to create a new my keyword, on my phone. At last, I created a backup key to protect my keyword & downloaded it, but can't find it anymore.

Since, impossible to open my account on any of my devices (Macbook, IPad & Android phone) because my main keyword is considered wrong.

Computer browser is 80.0.1 version IPad browser is 28.0 (18809) version.

I have a main email address & a secondary one (which receives no information from firefox). On my phone, I'm asked a 4 figures code that I can't find anywhere. I tried to download the QR code authentification application, but my MAC browser does not show any QR Code, it asks me the main keyword.

I don't want to loose all my IDs & keywords. I'm going mad, what should I Do ?
