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.

Hallo, ich bin Kunde der Telekom und nutze das Telekom email Center zum Schreiben von Mails. Dafür muss ich immer umständlich die Adresse z.b. eines Shops ins email center übertragen um zu schreiben. Alternativ öffnet ein Klick auf die Adresse ein Auswahlfenster, mit welcher App ich eine Mail schreiben möchte. Da ich weder Mail noch sonst eine App nutzen möchte, suche ich nach einer anderen Möglichkeit. Kann man Firefox so einstellen, dass bei einem Klick auf die Mail-Adresse direkt dasTelekom email center gestartet wird? Vielen Dank!

Is it possible to disable autoplay videos on sites like CNN or NBC while still allowing video to be played on demand? I have disallowed autoplay on these sites because they have annoying, intrusive videos on about every single page, but I still *do* sometimes want to watch selected videos. With autoplay disabled, the "play" button in videos does not work, either. As it is, I have been disabling, then re-enabling, the autoplay block before/after watching a video, which sort of works as a work-around, but I'd really like a real solution--one that blocks autoplay but allows play on demand.

Mozilla replaced the Feedback page with a "Challenges" page, so this looks like the only place to send real feedback. The Firefox 89 update appears to render Firefox as useless as Edge has become (at least for me). I don't need more pictures and an "experience." I need my toolbars to stay where I can find them, and I need to set them in the linear arrangement that I need to use them. To reveal any more would be "TMI," so I will just add this. I keep my update settings on manual in order to keep updates from crashing my custom accessibility settings. From what I read about the "ff" 89 update, I knew that "floating tabs" would be a disaster for me, so I did not even try it. I hope that Mozilla will at least consider a way for users to preserve their custom or "legacy" settings in the next update. The corporate culture that is Mozilla should remember that computers exist to serve people, not the other way around. Thank you and good-bye.

How can we ask our Mozilla friends to make line spacing a customized control for say high, medium or low line density? The line spacing change in FF89 is reminiscent of the Window 8 debacle, when MS tried to bring a pad friendly UI to the desktop.

As of a few days ago, forward/backward webpage navigation gestures do not work anymore. I have windows 10 installed on a dell xps, both are updated, system touchpad navigation controls have not changed, and switching the commands to different gestures does not return the functionality of being able to quickly go forward or backwards through websites. VERY frustrating. Ran a system check on my computer using the command prompt and no files were found to be corrupted. I would like some advice on what to do next. I have looked up this problem so many times now that I keep circling back to pages I have seen already.

A few moths ago, when you visited a website and then typed some new search-term in the address-bar, you used to be able to search right in that tab. Now a new tab opens up and you get moved there.

While programming, i search for a lot of stuff. Switch to Firefox -> Ctrl+L -> type search-term is the fastest way i found to search for whatever I need. Problem is: now my browser clutters itself by always opening new tabs instead of just reusing the one i don't need anymore.

So my questions would be this:

  1. Is it possible to restore the old behaviour of staying within your one tab?
  2. If there is some other shortcut that allows for searching without moving to a new tab?

(I also tried Ctrl+K and Ctrl+J. Both still open a tab when you already are on a website.)

Hello, I downloaded the Yoroi wallet as an add in to the firefox browser. I am using the wallet with a Ledger Nano S. I transferred ADA to the wallet (which worked ok), but it will not let me stake or send the ADA. It brings up a message stating: Something unexpected happened. Please retry.

I have re-synced the wallet with the blockchain (which went ok), but still I cannot send or stake my ADA. Does anyone know what I can do to remedy this?

- Everytime FF does an update, we have to restore our chosen settings, like the chosen navigator (it always comes back to google, which i boycott), and almost all parameters we have chosen ! I have adopted FF as soon as it was created (after Netscape), and it was working a lot better before. It takes lots of time to restore our parametrers every time, if we do not forget to do it ! Could you fix that, so when you do an update, it does not change everything ?

- I have set up FF so it would ask me before installing an update, because I do not want all those updates that change everything. But FF goes on doing the updates without asking my permission!

- I keep lots of bookmarks, and with bibliothèque, it was easy to look for the one I needed, by putting them in alphabetical order. This option has disappeared in the last update ! Your new setting does not help at all, makes it very difficult and unpleasant, and I want to come back to the previous one. How do I do that ?

- Since a few updates, on the line where written FF, with the logo, I cannot get read of bookmarks that have placed themselves without my asking. How do I get read of those, I want nothing on this line !

- I have made up my mind, if things do not improve, I will stop using Firefox !

        I thank you in advance for your help !

After installing version 89.0. the start page icons have changed in size and have a padding border. In the previous version 88.0 they were much larger and without padding and therefore easier to see. Is it possible to change the icon size and padding. If not, can it be added as a customising feature. I specifically used firefox over other browsers as I much preferred the look and size of the start page with added shortcuts. In version 89.0 this has changed. Please, I need my added shortcuts to be bigger.

How do I prevent my browser from automatically , intermittently go to zoom when I have no idea how this happened?’ for ‘Firefox’ .

How do I avoid a pop-up window that asks me to do a variety of things when I have no requested it. It interferes with my ability to click on the arrow moving me from page to page. It is particularly annoying reading an on-line newspaper.

Thank you for your help.

Hi there,

I have the SetupVPN extension on all my browsers (Edge, Chrome and Firefox). But, after I updated Firefox to the new version it seems I can't connect to neither SetupVPN nor any other VPN extension. However, this extension is working on other browsers as good as it was, and the problem is only with Firefox!

Thanks for future help!
