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.

Hi, I just moved from Chrome recently. I found that most of my shortcuts does not work when a text box is focus. For example, I have a plugin shortcut set to `shift` + `alt` + e. When focused on text box, typing this shortcut will literally type a back-tick "´". I've never see similar behavior in Chrome.

I'm wondering how can I disable this "overriding" behavior? (i.e. I want `shift` + `alt` + e activates the plugin behavior when I'm in input mode)

Thanks in advance!

thumbnail images on certain websites won't load and sometimes takes 10-20 seconds before they pop up

I've noticed in the past 2-3 weeks when visiting some websites that have a bunch of image thumbnails that load up. It will load the outline of a image, but not load the actual image thumbnail at times until anywhere between 5 seconds to upwards to 20-30 seconds before they pop in. Other times I'll notice it seems like they just don't want to load regardless and I'll even try right clicking on a invisible thumbnail image and clicking "Reload image" for it not to work, sometimes it does.

I have tried nearly everything that I could think of to fix this, I don't know if it's a recent issue with windows 10 maybe? I don't think it's our internet causing the issue since everything else seems to load and stream just fine, these websites work just fine on other devices within our home and I swear it was working just fine on my computer a little over 2-3 weeks ago.

Below is a list of fixes I've tried to rule out.

Clear cookies/cache data, run firefox in safe mode, dev mode, etc.

Completely delete firefox and any old folders, reinstall 100% fresh without any previous data or addons/extensions. Still didn't fix it.

I've tried turning off many of the settings for firefox like hardware accel, smooth scrolling, etc. Nothing.

I then tried doing stuff outside of firefox to see if anything else would work. I have made sure my graphics driver is fully updated and that didn't do anything.

I've tried to see if the thumbnail images were doing the same thing in other browers like chrome and I thought at first that chrome was handling these websites just fine, but after testing it a bit. I noticed the same thing was happening with chrome too.

Since it's also affecting chrome I know it's pretty pointless to post and ask what I should do or what could be the problem here. But I don't know where else to turn and just checking if anyone has had this problem before.

The attached image is a example for one of the websites I'm having this issue with, but like I said. It's loading these websites just fine on other devices from the looks of it.

Hello, thanks for taking time to read this. I tried downloading a website, a public youtube playlist in fact, using the right click - "save page as" command, but when I then click the downloaded page, it loads in firefox for a moment, then switches to a different (private) playlist on youtube. What? It's offline, right? And it aborts loading the saved website and instead loads another site?

I am no longer able to access the homepage of hollywoodreporter.com. As soon as I try it, a pop-up window titled "Manage Your Privacy" asks me to "Accept All", "Reject All" or "Manage Settings". (See attachment.) When I click "Accept All", nothing happens. When I click "Manage Settings", the pop-up window just turns grey and I can't do anything but close the tab and start over. Clicking "Reject All" only produces a warning, but does not close the pop-up either. I have cleared the browser cache and the cookies. I am using the latest version of Firefox. Any suggestions how this problem might be resolved are welcome. I can still access the homepage using other browsers, but I would prefer to do it with Firefox...

I've been running the Firefox browser for several years. No real problems with it. Any prior issues were minor and easy to deal with. Two months ago, I downloaded the Avast VPN application, which I was happy with. (hang with me here, please.) But, a week ago, I started seeing this internet connection message, "unidentified network internet access" along with my internet connection notation. When I turn off the VPN all is well for while. I can open Firefox, even get into my AOL mail. But beyond that when I try to clink on a link or bookmark or type in a URL on Firefox, it never opens. Just sits there. I have tried every suggestion on mozilla help pages and Avast (that I understand) and still no fix. Wit's end here.

I also have the Edge browser and this does not happen with Edge; all work. So I'm thinking the issue has to be with Firefox. I'm thinking I should just delete Firefox browser from laptop and then load it back on my laptop. I'm not a techie and am not comfortable with that. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to quit Firefox. Thanks.

Hi all, I'm having an annoying problem. A couple weeks ago, I was having major computer problems that required me to completely delete and recreate my user profile. I apparently hadn't logged into Google Voice since then, but decided to try and call a friend from that number today. When I tried to call her though, she couldn't hear me. Subsequent testing revealed that the problem is that Firefox isn't using my computer's microphone as the input, but rather it's taking the input from Stereo Mix, despite the default input device on my computer being the microphone. How do I change this within Firefox? I also have a wireless headset that I use sometimes, but when I plug that in, none of the audio switches to it. If desired, is there a way to get Firefox to use this device for audio output?

Hello Firefox Community and suport team,

Hope you all and your families are safe in these tough times.

I'm using Firefox extended support release 78.12.0esr (https://www.screencast.com/t/DfQBOa0GcDG), everything is working fine unless I use any virtual machine inside that, numpad starts misbehaving.

Whenever I type any number using number keys given below function keys, it works fine. But when I type any number from numpad situated at right side of full keyboard, it starts misbehaving. It types an alphabet with every keys. Video screenshot of the issue: https://www.screencast.com/t/ovucf32Tpz1d

Can anyone please check and help me to get rid of this issue?

Thanking You, Om

Hi, my Firefox is wrong window-size when using dual monitors and inflicts on the second monitor. Even when fullscreen netflix etc. on the other monitor. This makes it so that there is a small (a few pixels) bar along the bottom of the monitor whilst i have FF max expanded. I have the second monitor stretched and placed "a top" on the other monitor if that matters. Only FIrefox has this issue when max stretched.

Good morning. I unsubscribed from all communication from Mozilla Firefox. I clicked the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every email I received and yet, since this past Saturday, I am STILL getting email from Mozilla. I even changed my email address and unsubscribed again but since Saturday there are 3 more emails from Mozilla in my mailbox. I want it to stop but there appears nothing else I can do, I already unsubscribed from everything I could find. Not really a fan of unsolicited email and I don't give my email address out because of it. I don't expect it from Mozilla which is supposed to be all about security and privacy. I am not subscribed to firefox account tips. I posted a few images to show what I am talking about.

Thanks

Users send us their PDFs which we are made available from our website. One such PDF appears blank when displaying it with the built-in Firefox PDF viewer. If the same PDF is downloaded from Firefox, the PDF appears fine in Adobe Acrobat. The downloaded PDF shows a blank page if opened directly in Firefox. The same PDF renders properly in Chrome, Edge, and IE.

I'm using using the latest version of Windows 10 and the latest version of Firefox (which is 90.0.1). We've had other PDFs experiencing the same issue. I've tried different computers, cleared temporary Internet files, and restored Firefox settings to default. Nothing seems to help. We'd like to use the built-in Firefox PDF viewer if possible. Any suggestions?

I open and print pdfs in Firefox frequently. In settings I have it set for a pdf to open in Firefox, but this past week on all pdfs the text is now rasterized when printed. If I change the setting to allow the pdf to open in Acrobat I don't have this problem, but I am printing pdfs so often that it is a nuisance to have to close another window when the pdf opens in Acrobat. I noticed that Firefox did an upgrade last week and I wonder if there is a setting anywhere that I can change so the text isn't printing rasterized? I cannot seem to find a setting anywhere. Any help is appreciated!
