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.

This problems started with FF 84.0.1 and continue in 84.0.2

When I browse in full screen mode and try to save something (a web page or a picture... it doesn't matter) the dialog box does not show up on the screen - only two big buttons on my touch bar which allow me to "cancel" or "save".

Is there a way to fix that?

Firefox memory usage with Facebook

After using Facebook Watch on Windows 10 for a while, Process Explorer will show one Firefox Process with a huge amount of memory, which takes up to two minutes of high processor usage to be released once the tab is closed. This slows work with the other Firefox tabs. Firefox Task Manager "forgets" about it as soon as the tab is closed. This does not happen on Android.

This problem has been around for a long time. Just thought I'd see if anyone has any ideas other than not watch FB videos.

I have 2 separate firefox accounts, one is my personal profile and the other one is for school. I recently made the switch from brave to firefox and I had the same thing but the profiles were pinned to the taskbar for easier access. I cant do this for firefox because i pin one shortcut and I right click the other shortcut but its connected to each other so it shows unpin from taskbar.

bold text

I spend more time LEARNING how to do this or that with my computer. Thousands of hours wasted over the years. I guess some kids think this is fun. Not me. I downloaded "SingleFile" hoping it would be easy to use, but it's not. I used to use things like UnMHT but that' gone. Todays problem is that I don't have a printer hooked up to my computer. I bought a car part online and wanted to print the oversized receipt. I downsized the page and took a screenshot of the receipt. Took the screen shot and put it on a stick. Next I turned on my wife's computer which has a good printer connected to it. I transferred the file to her computer, but the printout was very shabby looking. How can I get around the problems of saving pages and / or printing them ? Switch to a different browser ? You must know my email by now. Please send me an answer. Ray P.S. Should I be using Thunderbird or something ? Really confused. Another problem is that people don't know how to explain things. It's like they're using a different language with words missing. OMG :-(

It seems like directly displaying markdown documents would be helpful and pretty easy to implement (especially now that CommonMark is being accepted as a standard). I see these bugs for it, but no real movement or priority. Is it on a roadmap anywhere? Anything a not-really-developer can do to help?

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox so that Google is not collecting quite so much information about me. I tried to create a USPS CLick N Ship label, but something is happening and it won't let me finish creating it.

This is not about printing a label , it's about creating one to be printed.

To create a label, I go to https://cns.usps.com/index.shtml and put in all the info about who the package is from, who it's going to, ship date, type of package, etc. Once all that info is filled out, there's a button at the bottom that says Select Service And Packaging. That takes you to the next screen where it says "PROCESSING" for second, then displays the next screen where you select which flat rate service to use, insurance, options like signatures, etc. This is a full screen in the same tab, not a popup.

With Chrome, this works fine, I do it nearly every day, so I'm quite familiar with the process. With Firefox, when I click on Select Service And Packaging, it flashes the PROCESSING for about half a second, then displays the same screen. Even though the next step is not a popup, I tried adding usps.com as and exception to popup blocking. That didn't help. I tried disabling popup blocking altogether. That didn't change anything. I went back to my Chrome and created the label I need with no problems, so it's not a USPS problem.

This is also a new Firefox installation, so it isn't like i have all sorts of addons or plugins installed. I have not tried it in safe mode, as I have created my label for today, but I could try that next time I need to create a label.

Any suggestions on what I need to do to Firefox to fix this? I'd prefer to be able to use Firefox for everything.
