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.

Hello. New firefox user, just got it today. Been scrolling facebook, and it's almost unusable. As i'm scrolling, if new content is loaded, then it jumps me down to a position underneath the new content. This ends up skipping about 6 or 7 posts completely. Is there a way to tweak the scroll anchoring settings, or does everyone with firefox just deal with this? I'm on a mac, using my track pad and a usb mouse. Scroll jumping happens in safemode, and on nightly/safemode.

So I was adding captions to another YouTuber's video. I felt like being helpful. (Video in question: Playframe's Dark Souls video "Ornstein and Smough") I left the tab open to go to class, but when I came back to resume working on it, the tab locked up so badly my screen went black every time I tried to un-minimize the tab. Eventually, the entire browser crashed -- so badly, that, upon bringing RuneScape up, I was given the alert that my graphics driver had been halted due to an error. I can only assume it was this crash because nothing else of note happened. Luckily, I got the driver updated and everything seems to be good now.

But one question is bugging me: Can a Firefox crash actually cause your graphics driver to straight up fail? Because everything was working fine before this crash.

Within the last couple months Firefox has not started or run like it normally had. With Firefox running, if I am in an email with Thunderbird and click a link to open a tab in Firefox I always get a message "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window." Task Manager says it is working and if I go to Firefox I can do anything I want. If I click to close and restart it reloads whatever was open and adds the redirected page. I have uninstall, uninstalled with a complete wipe, refreshed and ever loaded defaults, result is the same. I have disabled and even uninstalled all extensions. Along with that no matter what I do Firefox, on start up, will not load my home setting but reloads whatever was loaded last time. I have turned off reload option and it stays turned off but still the only way to get Firefox to load my home pages is to press the home button. Again, this all started about a month or two ago. Don't know if any major update was done during this time or not.

Alt-Tab while Dragging File - File Dropped Instantly

When I try to drag a file to a firefox window which can accept files (e.g. Overleaf, online pdf editors, Google Drive, etc.) the file is immediately "dropped" when I Alt-Tab from Windows Explorer to Firefox. By "dropped" I mean that Firefox will act as if I let up on the left mouse button and immediately try to process the file.

If, in Overleaf for example, my cursor isn't over the file acceptance box when I let go of Alt+Tab to get to Firefox, then the file won't register as uploaded. If I'm on a random Firefox tab, the tab will redirect to opening the file if it's supported (i.e. a PDF will open the PDF viewer).

Firefox version is 76.0.1 (64-bit). Safe-Mode does not fix the issue.

The issue also applies to dragging freshly downloaded files from Firefox to another window (e.g. Windows Explorer). As soon as Alt-Tab is hit, the file is treated like it was dropped in Firefox and the drag fails.

Son had been using the home desk top and firefox without any problems. Had bought a laptop for him to use in school. Use my Windows account to setup the laptop and it imported family settings automatically. On the laptop, I allowed him admin rights. He managed to install his online games and Chrome, but not Firefox. Running Firefox, pop-up it keeps asking to send email to ask for permission to us app. I have allowed it on MS Account, but it does not work. I can use Firefox on the laptop but not my son. Have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it again but still does not work. It now has also stopped firefox from running on child account on desktop which before that had worked.
