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.

When i watch the stream with 120 FPS, i got "skipped flames" and the video stops for a moment, at the same time, everything is fine in the Edge (no freezes and 0 skipped flames)

-- Video decode uses only 60-80% in both browsers -- On Windows 8.1 i have skipped flames but no see freezes (Old pc) -- I try default firefox (clean install, w/o addons etc) - without results.

What suggestions?

I detected recently a change in behaviour that is annoying me quite a bit. I do not know where to change such behaviour. It concerns examples such as :

A link like "file://path_to_some_folder" used to open Windows Explorer and now opens a new tab.

A link like "thunderlink://blahblah" used to open the associated application just like that. Now it first opens a new tab before doing so. Leaves me with lots of unnecessary tabs (only having "thunderlink://..." in their titlebar).

I assume it is the one or the other default setting that changed, but I cannot figure out how to restore the original behaviour.

Firefox extends onto 2nd display when window is maximized.

Firefox Browser 89.0b6 (64-bit) Developer Edition Windows 10 Pro 20H2 Build 19042.804 Feature Experience Pack 120.2212.551.0

I currently have two displays connected, the 2nd display is positioned above my primary display, the two displays are arranged as such in the Display settings.

With Firefox open on my primary display; if the window is Maximized, it extends several pixels beyond the top of the screen and onto the second display above.

If I go into Display settings and rearrange the displays so that Windows behaves as though the 2nd display was actually to the right of the primary display, maximized Firefox windows to do not extend onto the 2nd display.

From what I have observed (a handful of various browsers, notepad++, office applications, adobe reader, explorer, cmd, and other miscellaneous software), this seems to be specific to Firefox.

It appears to be that Firefox is drawing itself slightly beyond the top of the desktop when maximized.

It is enough to cover approximately the lower two thirds of the information in the 'status bar' area of the windows on the 2nd display.

Is this a known issue? Is there some a way to fix this? Is this somehow not an issue with Firefox despite it only happening with Firefox?

Any help is appreciated.

There used to be header and footer settings in the older page setup option for date/time, page of page, etc.

Now you have to change where you want this in the about:config. Would be nice if this option was in the print settings dialogue.

This is more of a request than an issue. As I was able to change how I wanted the pages to print using the about:config method and setting up the header and footer there.

Dear all,

I recently have a problem with the Bitwarden Addon (1.49.1) and Firefox (88.0) on Windows 10 with my Surface Pro 7.

When I activate the the addon the window pops up and when I then tap on something in the window, for example, the settings or the field for password entry, then the extension closes.

This happens only in touch mode, when I tap on the windows. When I use a mouse or a pen it doesn't close.

There are some workarounds like open the addon in new windows or opening the virtual keyboard from the tray. But it has worked very well for a long time. Also in other chromium based browser it works still.

I contacted the Bitwarden Support and they could reproduce the problem, but are not able to fix it, because it has something to do with the particular environment for the add-ons in Firefox.

Is there something in the settings, which coud fix the problem or is it possible that it will be fixed in another update?

Best regards,

Sascha

So I have several accounts logged-in in Gmail:

/u/0 <- my main one /u/1 /u/2 /u/3

... but in Youtube I always used my /u/1 account, I have all my playlists there, etc.. and I want to have my /u/1 logged-in there as the main one while I also have my /u/0 as the main one in Gmail. I come from Opera and I didn't have any problem doing this, I just log-in in the desired order in Gmail, and then I log-in in Youtube with the account that I want. But in Firefox it links my gmail with my youtube, so if I log-out my /u/0 in youtube, it also logs out from Gmail. So when I put the /u/1 on first place in youtube it alter the order in my Gmail and /u/1 becames the main one.

How can I set it up correctly in Firefox? it is not a Gmail/Youtube problem, but a Firefox problem, since I can do it as I want in other browsers.

Thanks.

I have been having a slight on going problem with Firefox lately. Where the PC will freeze with CPU load pegged at 100% for several seconds between watching videos or when an ad pops up while watching a video(normally I run uBlock, but I disabled all add-ons), but this is random and wont happen on at times. I am currently using Waterfox and have 0 issues, but Waterfox is not supported fully for Amazon Prime Video.

I have done the common things such as updating to the latest release, reinstalling the browser, refreshing the browser, disabling all add-ons, updated drivers, disabled hardware acceleration, reinstalled windows but the issue does seem to be persistent.

Even after a clean install of Windows & an install the latest Firefox the issue cropped up.

I did use Firefox's performance recorder to capture When viewing under ""Waterfall"" The main large recorded events are DOM Event and when expanded has Promise Callback When viewing under ""Call Tree"" The largest event is MediaSource.isTypeSupported

I did save the recording so it can be viewed as I do not understand the details.

I know this is not a hardware issue as I also duel boot LMDE4 and have 0 issues using Firefoxwhen in Linux and if it were a hardware issue I would expect to have problems in linux as well as when using Waterfox in windows.

I have stress tested my GPU and have had 0 issues. I can upload the Performance Recording if needed.


My Hardware is. i5 6600K 32GB 3000Mhz RAM GTX1080 1TB NVMe SSD.
