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 is Mozilla going to stop making FireFox even less ADA Acceptable? Thousands, if not millions, choose FF because it is accessible. With each update starting with Quantum, FF has become less accessible. I am currently trying to find an accessibility attorney to file a discrimination claim against FF/Mozilla. Stop making thing broken by 'fixing' them. Thin lines. Thin fonts. Icons without text. Shaded colors with no definition. A tab line on top with hazzy shadows behind it. YUCK

People with vision issues such as early cataracts cannot see this crap.

Mozilla F'd the Fox with this one.

Does there need to be an uprising at Mozilla in SF to get somebody's attention?

According to this site: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/hyphens the Greek language is not included in the hyphenation support. Since hyphenation rules for Greek exist (for example in LibreOffice) is it so difficult to add Greek to the supported languages? Is there something that needs to be done from some Greek user? If yes could you direct me to what must be done to see if I can do it or find someone to do it (if I can't)?

thank you.

When bookmarks are restored, they are in reverse order

Hello, I'm using syncing for several years and now I had to reset my working laptop to default Windows 10 installation. So I installed also Firefox, loged in and was waiting for restoring of the bookmarks and the rest. What happened was the bookmarks were empty, only folders were restored. I saw the bookmarks for few seconds and then they dissapeared. And of course it synced the state into the rest of my devices. So I used one of the backups I do on many occasions. What happens is the bookmarks are back, but they're completely in reverse order. Everything is rotated and the splitters are at the bottom of each folder. Nothing helps, it's again synced into all my devices and I'm going crazy, because I put so much time in the past to organize the bookmarks and I have thousands of them. I have backups in json as well as in HTML, but the reverse order is terrible. What can I do? Best regards, Pavel

Having some issues with a couple of websites where the text seems to be really bold, also its getting mixed up and overlapping or doing strange line breaks (see attached image).

This seems to only be on Facebook messaging or Facebook Business suite. Also in eBay messages. I've noticed it on a couple of blog sites too.

What can I do to fix this? Thanks

When browsing on my iMac 27" Retina full width screen views webites as if it's an iPhone. Which is very annoyning fills the window as if it was mobile phone. Sometimes when doing a supermarket shop it goes big when you move the mouse sideways!

I have a WordPress website using a Divi theme and this is displaying incorrectly. It's fine in Safari!

https://www.reevesdesign.co.uk/


This has only happened since the latest update Firefox 89.0 Weird I have just cleared cache and it views OK.

Still got that annoying big screen when shopping, that you can't get out of.

Anyone else getting these problems on iMac please?

I'm old school. My new tab and home page are my own. Sadly there has been a recent regression with respect to Containers with Firefox 89.0.1. I've been using Firefox Multi-Account Containers for a very long time. I've been using 7.3.0 since January. It seems no matter what I do it is now h*ll bent on prompting what container I want to open my home page in. It doesn't matter how many times I tell it not to do this on the "Open this site in your assigned container?" in the most recent version of Firefox all buttons related to opening in the Default container do not appear. I can tell it to "Remember my decision for this site" and open in the current container but that does nothing. It's right back to the prompting every time I open a tab. Has anyone found a way to end this extraneous prompting?

Hello Dear Folks.

Since the new Update 89.0 I've had issues with several websites not showing the text. As if it's written with "invisible ink". After marking it appears, its like black text on black background, or white text on white background. I have tried out different Themes, Addons, but none of them work. I didn't upgrade to 89.0, I think it happened automatically, because one day I just saw my Firefox layout beeing different. So it should have "auto-update" on. I have also attached images as examples.

Anyone else have these problems, is there any way to fix this or should I downgrade my Firefox version? Also my OS Windows 10 is up to the newest version.

If downgrading is the only fix, does it keep my "settings, passwords, profiles, bookmarks, etc"?

Thanks in Advance!
