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 use "MCE Reset Toolbox" to add entry points to WMC for launching websites with Firefox.

See image 1.

The following image is of the settings I used in "MCE Reset Toolbox" for one of the entry points.

See image 2.

Everything worked fine until yesterday when I updated to the latest Firefox v80. Now whenever WMC relaunches after closing Firefox I get the "MCE 7 RESET TOOLBOX Access is denied" message in WMC.

See image 3.

I checked the Firefox release notes for v80, and it mentions that a number new permission policies have been implemented. Maybe that's what's causing the issue.

Restoring Firefox back to v79 fixes the issue.

Does anyone know what caused this issue or have any ideas how to fix it?

Hi, i have this issue for several months already: I have FF set as default browser. When I open it with the FF icon in Windows, everything works fine, but when FF is closed and I open a link (for example in another browser), it opens up FF, but in a weird unclickable "frame". Until yesterday the frame was only above my window. When I want to change tabs, I go with the cursor all the way up the window. Normally it's OK - I click there and the tab changes. But when this problem occurs - there is this "dead area" of one or several pixels hight that don't react on clicks. Since today there is an additional frame on the sides of my window - white frame that also is "dead" for clicks. That messes up my workflow with two browsers and my way of inprecise, but comfortable mouse usage.

A while back I created two profiles in Firefox, to separate bookmarks needed for work and private life. Yesterday I unfortunately needed to reinstall macOS, and now, after reinstalling Firefox, the two profiles are no longer separate when I've logged into my Sync account. I can still see two profiles when I go to about:profiles, but opening one or the other does not make a difference. I hope someone knows how I can fix this, thanks in advance!

I got a new laptop and downloaded the latest Firefox. However, it does not save PDF's as PDF's anymore; instead, it saves them as Firefox Document. This is annoying. All else works fine, but it created issues when I send them to someone. I have to open them in Adobe, save as PDF and then it works. I've gone into "Options" and changed "Applications" -> Portable Document Format (PDF) to "Action": Use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC but it didn't help.

I am having difficulties when opening "privacy and sercurity" settings of Firefox 80, used under Win10 64bit. Everything was OK until this morning, the error started in the evening of 27 august 2020 (JST).

I watched through the TaskManager of Win10 that Mozilla consumes some 1,200MB memories of may computer when trying to open the "privacy and sercurity" settings. It is near freezing, so I have to stop the session of Mozilla from TaskManager. Please fix this error immediately. Thank you.

BTW, I daily uses this "privacy and sercurity" settings because I'd like to manually allow accepting cookies from a certain URL, and delete it immediately after posting comments to a BBS site.

Dear all,

I can not seem to add google scholar to the search engines that are used in the one-click search engines. I have done this before on my other computers but the option no longer appears in the elipse ... dropdown menu. I know there is a addon for google scholar but I prefer to have it as an one-click search.

I am using the Mac version of Firefox 80.0 (64-bit)

thank you

Hallo, ich bin vielleicht falsch hier, jedoch habe ich seit mehreren Update von Firefox nicht mehr die Möglichkeit meine Freenet-Mail einzusehen. Freenet startet zwar, aber der Zugriff auf das Mailkonto läuft sich tot. Eine Meldung an Freenet hatte ich schon gemacht. Die vorgeschlagenen Maßnahmen wurden alle mit negativem Ergebnis durchgeführt. Eine Rücksetzung aller Firefox Dateneinstellungen ist nur noch mit der Juli-Version der Sicherung möglich. Ich habe Firefox auch schon mal komplett neu aufgesetzt – auch wieder ohne positives Ergebnis. Im Moment muss ich für die Webmailabfrage den ungeliebten Edge-Browser benutzen, welcher in diesem Fall problemlos funktioniert. In der Hoffnung, sie können die Mail eventuell weiterleiten verbleibe ich mit Dank auf eine Antwort. Rüdiger Grund

First of all, I don't need anyone to inform me about the toolbar overflow, because I know all about that, and that's actually the problem. Addon buttons that are in the Overflow Menu that create dropdown menus are all having those menus squished to just the width of the overflow dropdown menu, making information and controls in said dropdown menus inacessible and unable to be seen.

We need to get the ability to make additional toolbars back, to allow any dropdown menus for addons we don't have room for on the main toolbar to be full width and actually usable. I've looked for solutions and the only ones I've found require coding skills far beyond my capabilities. You'd think Mozilla would want their browser to be user-friendly, rather than user-adverse, but they seem to have chosen the latter.

Is there any way to add additional toolbars to Firefox 79.0 that don't require 3 years of coding at college to accomplish?

Whenever I see the "restart required" screen (either because I entered about:restartrequired or because Firefix just pops it up) and I click the "Restart" button which promises to restore Firefox and all my tabs, Firefox never, ever restarts.

Hasn't from day one over 3 years ago.

I've waited for an hour, and nothing happens. Eventually I have to click the icon to start it manually.

Not a great bug in the scale of things, but I really don't like software that lies to me. Maybe someone could fix the message ? Or the bug ?

Hello,

After i upgraded my computer to Windows 10, my keyboard started freezing when using Firefox. Some websites seem to trigger it - my regular banking website always triggers it and I have to use a different browser to access it.

I have tried changing ticking the "Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser" option on security as suggested, but this has not made any difference. I have also disabled add ons except 'H264' as suggested - again no change.

Does anyone have any ideas on how i might fix this please?

Many thanks, Sorcha
