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.

I know that all browsers, for security reasons, don't allow to show an svg with an embedded (external) image . But if I use, in my private localhost, in a svg an image from local (with a code like: xlink:href="myimage.jpg"), what security problem should I have? There is a way to get (maybe in about:config) a solution, so that I may show an svg with a local embedded image?

So I've found that Firefox doesn't seem to detect my headset microphone if it's plugged in while Firefox is already running. Going into a Google Meet meeting, it asks me if I want to allow the use of my microphone, and only shows a device that was plugged in already (a Rift S headset microphone) - unplugging, replugging, and refreshing the page all have no effect.

If I close down and restart Firefox completely with the headset plugged in, it works.

After searching, apparently there was a similar bug that appeared around Firefox 36 (I think?) that was fixed soon after - In any case, it seems to have reared its head again.

Здравствуйте! Помогите, пожалуйста, с проблемой. (ато владелец компьютера меня убьет)

Ситуация: Браузер файрфокс упал и не хочет запускаться даже в безопасном режиме. Хотелось бы полностью восстановить предыдущую сессию без потерь.

Чистку, которую рекомендует делать поддержка в такой ситуации, я сделать не могу, так как потеряется много важной информации пользователя (а компьютер не мой, и если я все сотру, то будет очень некрасиво, не считая того, что я получу))) и там важные для меня открытые, но не сохраненные в закладки вкладки, которые выискивались на протяжении долгого периода и которые хотелось бы восстановить. Думаю, проблема могла возникнуть из-за открытия большого количества вкладок - около 20. (Хотя компьютер хоть и старый, но мощный и память в нем есть, в других браузера я открывала гораздо больше вкладок и запускала более мощные программы). Может, можно как-то залезть в саму сохраненную где-то сессию, убрать там ошибки и прописать, чтобы он восстановил нужные мне 10 вкладок, а не 20? Или еще как-то сделать, чтобы все обошлось без потерь (и с гарантией, что все точно не рухнет совсем)? помогите, пожалуйста.

Версия стоит последняя, все расширения были отключены, ос - виндовс 7 максимальная. ID падения: bp-ce9c895f-9255-4aa7-b57b-2394b0201028

Спасибо заранее))

In english (googletranslate):

Hello! Please help with the problem. (the owner of the computer will kill me)

Situation: The firefox browser crashed and does not want to start even in safe mode. I would like to completely restore the previous session without loss.

I cannot do the cleaning that support recommends in such a situation, since a lot of important user information will be lost (and the computer is not mine, and if I erase everything, it will be very ugly, apart from what I get))) and there are important for me open, but not saved in the bookmarks tabs that were looked for over a long period and which I would like to restore. I think the problem could have arisen due to the opening of a large number of tabs - about 20. (Although the computer, although old, is powerful and it has memory, in other browsers I opened many more tabs and launched more powerful programs). Maybe you can somehow get into the session itself saved somewhere, remove errors there and prescribe so that it will restore the 10 tabs I need, and not 20? Or else to do something else so that everything goes without losses (and with a guarantee that everything will definitely not collapse at all)?

Help me please.

The version is the latest, all extensions have been disabled, OS is Windows 7 maximum. Drop ID: bp-ce9c895f-9255-4aa7-b57b-2394b0201028

Thanks in advance))

If I open other files that are on Onedrive everything works as it should. Part of the problem might be when onedrive says my identity needs to be verified Firefox does not allow me to access the screen to verify my identity. When using Window's browser no problems everything works as it should.
