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.

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!

Hi, I use the dark theme (kudos to the author). I have poor vision and low contrast stuff is hard to read.

When I am on a particular tab (window/pane), the tab itself is a very dark grey and is hard to distinguish from the other tabs.

Is there any way to customize the theme so that the selected tab is a lighter shade of gray?

Thank you.

Setting custom paper size for print/save to PDF

I'd like to add a new paper size for the built-in print/save to PDF function of FF. There are only a few default paper formats (see screenshot) available but I'd like to add a now custom format (for exampale resulting in 19.05x33.87cm for 16:9 screen ratio). Is there any way to do this?

I tried with adjusting many of the print.printer_Mozilla_Save_to_PDF.* settings but I didn't mange that a new custom format is selectable in the print dialog.

Im Using FF 89.0.2 under Win10. In Win10 print server settings I already defined a respective custom page format but still FF only allows the default formats.

Is there any way to adjust paper size for the FF internal PDF printer to a custom page size?

While using Bing, I accidentally clicked on the prompt to add Bing Firefox to my browser. A progress bar began, and I was asked whether I wanted to continue installing. I selected no, and the Bing extension was not added to my list of add ones. However, as there was a completed progress bar prior to me rejecting the add on, are there files for this extension still installed on my hard drive?
