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.

It would be great if support for Google Indic Keyboard is included in Firefox. This would ensure more local language use in various websites.

As of now the workaround is to open Google Translate or Google Transliteration in a new tab and manually copy the output to the original tab.

I think Firefox Sync from Desktop to Mobile is having issues. I am not seeing the saved logins cascaded across the devices even after an explicit manual Sync option exercised too.

Or is it mandatory to install Lockwise also installed in both the devices. I was of the opinion that the built-in sync of the browser would take care of this requirement.

Latest update blocking website like indeed from loading in information about employers and other sites too. Every update makes firefox worse. I started using other browsers because now some video's don't work either. Last thing I saw was a QUICK pop-up that said something about bits of trackers now being blocked. Well lots of things are being blocked and making browsing a miserable experience. I tried using the standards system in options. Can't find anything to make it work. Allow lots of things and nothing is working except to probably make the web browser more vulnerable to creeps. Please undo your current update and stop making so many updates. I've had three in the last two weeks and every time they screw up the browser more and more. Just stop it!

For a while now, tool tips on images displayed in the browser appear and immediately disappear again. This happens for example on xkcd.com, where the image usually has a humorous tool tip (the `title` attribute of the `img` tag). I can just see the tool tip appear, but it disappears so fast that I can't even read a single word.

Tool tips used to display fine, the problem appeared after an upgrade to Firefox was installed, though unfortunately I do not remember which version it started with.

I've searched Google, Bugzilla and the support forums, but I haven't been able to find any other mention of this problem.

Is there a setting somewhere that determines how long tool tips stay visible? Should I file a bug report?

I just added a new subdomain on a site and when I entered the address the first time it had not been properly set up with an index page, so it loaded a defaultpage from my webhotel at /cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

The problem: This redirect is now cached, so every time I enter the address in firefox I get redirected to the same default page, and a ctrl-f5 will not work since it will reload the redirected page.

I would really like to see a ctrl-enter from the address bar doing the same thing (as ctrl-f5 does for reload) but for the address typed in the address bar. Now I had to open developer-tools->Settings and click in "Disable Cache (when toolbox is open)". Which is roundabout and kind of annoying. I really don't see why this should be necessary, especially since it would be much easier to just tell people to ctrl-enter (or it's equivalent on Mac) if they run into this specific problem, with a very easy (for me the user) fix, even if it's not simple to implement.

This setting does not have any effect. I've tried it with my old profile (with already saved certs and passwords (but no primary pw)) as well as a comlete new one. Every other policy like extension management does work.

Hello Community!

I consulted the noscript add-on of my browser because I wanted to find out what a resident web address named "remove.video" is about, after I had expressly denied it access to my system (via Leechblock) and it still remains permanently visible in all browser sessions. Worse, it seems to add illicit hypertext to any html-based message that I send, so I can only send simple text messages, and sometimes not even those, because the invisible html iframes are inserted automatically and so my messages can't be sent. This is especially annoying if you have to fill in a web form sheet and it is always rejected because obviously I can't even paste in "clean" texts from the editor - they get "infected" with all kinds of special characters as soon as I insert them into any given field. Even my provider-based mail program only permits mails which are written in "text only" mode and sends me back all the ones that I forgot to format in plain text.

Some web forms give you an information why the text cannot be submitted (that's how I learned that 'illicit characters' have intruded into my texts, although I can't see them). One form shortly popped up a small window (which disappeared again after three seconds) which gave me the information that such characters originated from a site called "remote.video". Then I tried to find out what this is. Google gives no information on this site because of "privacy" issues. NoScript has a new function which allows you to examine websites: no results. Then I banned "remove.video" by putting it on permanent block via LeechBlock, but NoScript shows me it's still there - with every website that I visit (of course I told NoScript that it shall not be trusted). It seems to be permanently resident in my browser no matter what I do. There is no hint that it is somewhere resident in my windows OS, a search for it yields no results whatsoever.

No virus scan has ever yielded positive results, my system seems to be virus free (according to AVG, eset and Malwarebytes).

Instead, things like the following continue to happen. I quote from a request which I entered into a web form (and which, of course, I was finally unable to submit):

"Now your site doesn't give me any information either. Instead (after I gave all permits for your site and entered my mail address), your website wants me to prove I'm not a robot via captcha. After I identify some bridges or taxis or stairs and confirm, it sends me right back to the captcha and asks me to prove I'm not robot. So I am unable to access any of your possible information. Please send me a mail and tell me how to resolve this problem."

In some web forms, typing the text into the editor and then copy it from there into the text field works fine. But in most, it doesn't (see above).

This is making me crazy. I would have switched to an IOS system if Covid would not have torn a huge hole into my revenues, so I just can't afford to buy a new system at the time and have to stick with my age-old nc-20 notebook, the RAM of which cannot be expanded to more than 2GB.

Anyone out there who can tell me how to to solve this problem? Please don't tell me to get a new system. Everything else works fine.
