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.

I am having issues with loading Ebay and LinkedIn correctly. On Ebay, the page format looks very off, and LinkedIn does not load pictures. I have tried methods on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can, but none of them worked. I also checked the Page Info > Media and checked the images that were not loaded on LinkedIn, it said that the size was unavailable as it was not cached. Both of them could be viewed in a different browser, and they were working fine and stopped working all of a sudden. Ebay has not worked for a long time, but LinkedIn was working until just a few days ago... Please help solve this issue.

Yesterday, I reinstalled Firefox because I noticed it broke my addons and wouldn't let me visit certain websites.

I reopened Firefox today to realize that it remember. I noticed this happening only on my RX 580 Ryzen 5 2600 emulating machine, and not my RTX 2080 Ti Ryzen 9 3900x machine. Closing out of Firefox works and restores my tabs and settings, but not restarting my computer. What am I doing wrong?

This is what happens: (screen shots attached)

1. I am in a Google Meet and hit "present." 2. The window pops up asking me to select "entire screen" or a "browser window." 3. I choose "entire screen" and hit "allow." 4. An error message pops up "Can't share your screen. An error has occurred when screensharing."

What I have tried:

Searched the forums. Others say go to preferences > privacy and security > privacy > screen recording. My settings does not have and additional "privacy" tab, nor "screen recording" anywhere (I searched).

I'm on Catalina.

Anybody have a fix for this?

After logging into my corporate Email account, there's functionality to be able to Proxy into other accounts/resources that you have access to. When you click on the Proxy function, it pops up with a window with a list of items you have access to. When you click on the link for any of these objects, it's supposed to then take you into that account/resource. However, the initial login screen just pops up again and when you re-enter the credentials, it just displays the original home page when I logged into my account. Should be displaying the folder list and such of the account/resource I'm proxying into immediately when clicking it in the list from the first pop up window.

Works fine on same computer in Chrome and Edge. Have tested site on 2 other systems (one Windows and one MacOS) and Firefox works fine on both of them. This used to work fine on this PC. Tried uninstalling, rebooting, and then re-installing Firefox, but same thing is happening after refreshing it.

I'm in the preview build of Win10 2004 and since the update Firefox has a strange flickering effect.

First I need to say I have two monitors. So late at night it happens that I have two videos open on each screen. Be it double Youtube or Twitch and Youtube etc.

My main screen has a refresh rate of 165Hz and is 2560x1440. The second one is 1920x1080 with 60Hz. So far I never had any problems. But now if I switch between the two displays with my mouse, the video on the second screen flickers into the first one for a brief second. Nothing happens if there is only text on the second one.

I know it could very well be an compability issue between 2004 and the latest Firefox Version but maybe somebody that already tested 2004 knows whats up.

This is a new development. Happening on all of my Mac OSX machines. Whenever I download a file from Firefox, the downloaded file now has write permissions set for group and other:

-rw-rw-rw-

instead of the more reasonable read-only permissions for group and other:

-rw-r--r--

This is a new development: all of my downloads started displaying these fully writable permissions about a month ago. Happening on multiple computers, so this is tied to Firefox v77.

I don't wear my headphones all the time. So if I'm in a forum or facebook, click on a video someone posted or have a few tabs open and want to watch something on youtube, I turn on my headphones and click the link to play it. I don't get any sound. If I open the audio mixer, it doesn't show firefox as one of the apps. If I close firefox, leave the headphones on and connected, then start firefox back up, sound works fine.

I don't believe it did this until I upgraded to 75.

Firefox 76.0.1 Windows 10 Home v1909 OS Build 18363.836

I was hoping it was just a bug that would get fixed with updates, but I'm a full version past when the issue started, so either it's specific to my machine, or it just hasn't been fixed yet.

Whenever I play a Youtube video in the background it causes screen tearing in games for me. This issue is fixed if I use the "Audio only for YouTube" extension, but I was wondering if there would be a more permanent fix?

It doesnt appear to be a hardware issue because my cpu is at around 20% and my memory is at 50% when I'm doing both things.

Hello,

I have a problem on using rocker gesture to change tabs. When I use it, sometime mouse pointer doesn't change on the destination page. For example, the pointer doesn't change on URL, textbox, on text and so on.

I tested some situation below; 1. If I change tabs by clicking it instead of using rocker gesture, it never happened. 2. If I change tabs by mouse wheel on tab area, it happened. 3. I cannot find regularity of it because it doesn't happen 100%. 4. I refreshed my Firefox but still happened. 5. I tested some addons (to use mouse gesture) but still happened. 6. I tried rereased firefox and beta one but still happened.

and some information is here, OS: Mac Catalina 10.15.4 Firefox: 77.0b6 Mouse: Logicool MX Master 2S

I'm sorry to terrible English,but I need your helps.

Thanks in advance,
