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've long synced my Firefox bookmarks with my iOS devices, using the iCloud control panel for Windows, and the add-on/extension for Firefox. It's worked perfectly on multiple computers, iOS devices until this week. All the key apps (Firefox, Windows, iCloud) are updated to their latest versions, but suddenly the sync won't work.

When I open the iCloud control panel the top 3 options (iCloud Drive, Photos, Mail/Contacts/Calendars and Tasks) are checked to sync. the fourth, Bookmarks, is not. If I check that box, the Options pop up appears, and I select "Firefox." So then I choose "Apply" at the bottom, but then I get the following error "iCloud Bookmarks extension for Firefox is required. Download the extension to keep your Firefox bookmarks up to date with the Safari bookmarks on your iPhone, iPad, and Mac." (see picture) If I select "download" then I go to the Firefox add-ons page and it shows that I've already installed this extension. Things just keep going in this loop where iCloud doesn't recognize that the extension is installed and won't all me to opt for iCloud to sync using an already installed add-on that it tells me to install!

I've tried opening/closing Firefox. Deleting then installing the add-on. Deleting then reinstalling iCloud. This was working well previously and now just keeps getting caught up in this non-functional loop. Apple support couldn't help and so I'm wondering if anyone here has found a solution.

multi language

Hy,

is there an option to automatically switch the language between German and English at the correction function? Sins i write in both languages with short times between changes i get the red underlining all the time, set to the other language and a few minutes later back... both at the same time would work to, the risk of having an English word in an German text and vice versa seams OK for me.

Hi,

I have come across this answer as to why youtube page gets randomly updated: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1246764#question-reply

After checking all my settings, I couldn't find any add on or extension containing "high-definition" words in it. My only extention in firefox is ublock origin.

Any idea why the updates continue to take place? Can ublock origin cause it? Or has there been a browser update that could cause it?

Many thanks in advance,

I am using Outlook.com (aka Outlook webmail, Hotmail) and the spell-check option no longer works. I write in multiple languages and have always had the option to access the drop-down menu to choose the language from the dictionaries that I have downloaded and/or chose the correct spelling of the word. This drop-down menu no longer appears.

I have reset Firefox to default settings. I then reinstalled the dictionaries that I used. I have also used Fred McD's suggestion:

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar.

Type: layout.spellcheckDefault Its values are; 0 Spell Checker Off 1 Check Only Multi-Line Input Boxes. 2 Check Multi And Single Line Input Boxes.

Nothing worked.

I went to send feedback from the Outlook.com feedback icon to the right of the e-mail page and spell-check was working there. It does not work, though, within the body of the e-mail. I spent two hours with Microsoft tech support by chat and they were not able to fix this problem.

The red squiggly line appears here now as I type (and most everywhere else except Outlook.com) and I am able to access the drop-down spelling menu.

It seems like there needs to be a technical resolution between Microsoft and Mozilla Firefox.

Thanks for any help.

Hi,

so I love Firefox and the ability to use addons even on mobile, which Chrome couldn't (which also was the reason why I switched to Firefox in the first place), the only thing that really bothers me is Lockwise. It's really glitchy sometimes; either it doesn't show up at all, then I have to manually copy paste my login data, or it moves around on the page when I scroll down, open up the keyboard etc.

So I thought, why not use Google's autofill, the feature I've always loved, because it works just perfectly, on Firefox instead. Did that on my tablet and mobile phone, as luckily you can select your autofill provider on Android. Sadly there's no option on Firefox so far (or I missed it, I quickly went through about:config but couldn't find anything there as well)... Maybe there's some hidden option or a safe addon that lets me do that?

Any advice would be much appreciated! Thank you in advance, Maria

hey there, I know the following is not a big deal, but I still appreciate any help. onto my problem: I reinstalled Firefox on Windows 10 (troubleshooting my PC) and turned off everything except for the search engine and the standard Firefox homepages in the settings for the homepage. Before the reinstall the Firefox logo was showing (pic below), now its just a white page with the search engine. i know this is not a real issue but I "enjoyed" the Firefox logo. thanks for help though!

I've installed CentOS 8, but I have a niggle.

I have two Firefox windows open: one on my left screen, one on my right screen.

I have VLC playing video on my left screen.

I would like to use the Firefox window on my right screen without it bringing the Firefox window to the front on my left screen, thus covering VLC.

Both Firefox windows act independently on Windows 10, I would like this behaviour in CentOS. Is there an option for this?

Thank you

Dear community,

I am desperately looking for a way to handle custom protocols in Firefox on macOS (both up-to-date). I have seen many questions and many answers, most of them are outdated or irrelevant.

On our intranet, some of the pages have links pointing to "ictfast:xxxxxx". The first part (ictfast) is never changing. The second part (xxxxxx) can be anything. I would like to run an external application when people click on such links.

What I have done so far: step #A1: In "about:config", I created and set the key "network.protocol-handler.expose.ictfast" to false. step #A2: I clicked on a link "ictfast:xxxxxx" step #A3: A box appeared letting me choose my external application

After these steps, if I click on a "ictfast" link, the application runs but I can't access the content in "xxxxxx".

To reproduce this, it is very simple: step #B1: open Automator step #B2: create a new Application step #B3: add the "Run Shell Script" actions step #B4: choose "Pass input" to as arguments" step #B5: remove the default content of the shell script step #B6: type in `echo "$@" > /tmp/args.txt` (without the backticks) step #B7: save and choose this app in step #A3

Now if you click on a "ictfast" link, the file in "/tmp/args.txt" is created, but is empty. There is no arguments passed to the applications.

I was naively believing that when clicking on a "ictfast" link, Firefox would internally run the command `/foo/bar/whatever.app "address"`. But it seems to be more complicated and cryptic than that.

Could anyone help me on this? Thanks!

I have one main email address plus several others. Usually when I log on to Thunderbird all the four email adresses, each with with its own set of subfolders appears on the opening Thunderbird screen on a vertical panel on the left. I can then click on to any of the four and see their incoming and sent messages. This has worked well for some years.

Yesterday, for no reason I can think of, only the main email (with its subfolders) appears. I cannot make the others re-appear, although I know they received emails in the last few hours.
