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.

In Firefox 90.0a1 (tried on the Nightly version), Mozilla removed the three dots and the ‘add to Pocket’ button from the address bar. I am not sure if this is the right place to ask, but why did Mozilla do that? I liked them a lot! I have added both the Pocket button, and the screenshot button back, but since they are now placed in the toolbar, the whole UI looks more cluttered.

I've been using this neat little utility for years, but development was ceased quite some time back. It still works, but the problem is that it randomly shuts down and has to be relaunched.

I'm hoping someone is familiar with something similar. See screenshot. The top four numbers are my four cores cpu usage.

I like using the address bar to search, but when I start typing an address I don't want the first thing between what I'm typing and the actual url that I can quick select to be 6 "search suggestions". Going into about:config and setting keyword.enabled false removes those search suggestions but it also stops the address bar search from working. Is there a setting that I can use to set the number of displayed suggestions to 0?

Hello all. Why has FireFox been degrading lately? What's going on? What happens to the only browser on the planet? Why has the new design lost icons and does not allow you to use the thin strip of the bar? Where did the page view button go and why you should follow it into the general menu under the headline of the window or open it on hot keys? Especially what happens with DoH, where did the set-up network.trr.bootstrapAddress in about:config disappear? I kept hoping that the white lights would be fixed when I started and opened the new tab, but it still remains, do I still have WaterFox to continue using or what? Which by the way for some reason is further optimized under the various instructions of the processor unlike the original, which gives a great performance when using a decent set of extensions with a large blocklist of the ad blocker.

Hi.

Often, "HTTPS Everywhere" blocks links to sites because the real URL is embedded in another (probably tracking) URL, and that URL points to a site that doesn't support HTTPS.

I have both ClearURLs and "HTTPS Everywhere" installed, and I hypothesize that if "ClearURLs" could remove strip the surrounding tracking URL from the embedded real URL, most real sites would work without complaint.

Can I somehow tell Firefox to apply "ClearURLs" before "HTTPS Everywhere", so that "HTTPS Everywhere" operates on the sanitized real address? (Or am I interpreting the situation wrongly?)

Thanks for your help.

Hello

Recently I chaged firefox font color and (font)background color; font color near white, (font)background color near black. From that time Youtube in_screen control button's (play/pause/sound/setting/full screen) background color changed to near white (default translucent) so the buttons became barely distinguishable.

I changed font/background color to the original, installed themes and addons but failed to set the buttons back to the original color.

Slidebar color changed to (font)background color.

I have eyes problem and some internet sites don't allow the dark mode, So I had to try browser color code editing for my eyes.

Could someone please tell me how to reverse the change or change the button's background color translucent?

I don't want to switch my browser to Chrome. I do want to upload music files to u tube music for my library there. Process is to open the u tube music library file and click on uploads and drag files from windows onto the page and it will upload. My problem is when I do this, the file I drag over shows a red circle with a line through it and will not upload to u tube music. It is the correct file type MP3. Is there a setting within firefox that I can change that could be preventing me from doing this? thanks. brian

When on YouTube, the searchbar annoyingly changes. There doesn't seem to be a setting to stop this behaviour.

I am not logged into YouTube, I don't even have an account on this browser. Youtube is not listed in the search engines. There are no YouTube search add-ons or suchlike installed.

I don't want websites to be in control of my UI. How do I stop this unwanted behaviour?

When picture-in-picture is invoked, it opens video small window. In the past it was a super tiny window, then after some updates it increased in size, then it went small again. The proportions of the window are also useless for most YT vids.

Basically, every time I use picture-in-picture I have to resize it. This is tirin. Is there a way to customize the start size of it like:

- set start size ...x... - remember the last size - auto-size based on the video proportions, set to 1/4 or 1/5 or 1/3, etc.

and so on.

Currently this picture in picture is more annoying then helpful because it require constant manipulation of the picture size. Annoying as hell.

Can I change the keyboard shortcut for Responsive Design Mode which is Ctrl+Shift+M?

The fingerprints are the biggest privacy threat on the internet. Firefox has great add-ons for that, but the problem is the screen size (resolution). I have a very rare screen size, only 1% has it, so I'm always unique on the net. You can change the resolution using Responsive Design Mode, but I would like to get it faster, at least by changing the shortcut.

It would be great if someone would make an add-on for this, that is, with one click to the Responsive Design Mode.

TOP Sites on Firefox HomePage Will Not Stay or are Gone

Once again, the Top Sites that I have chosen on the the FF Home Page have shifted, or been removed. When I add them back on (and PIN) the site shortcut is there, but now I can't get the ICON that represents the Short Cut to appear and I have no idea how to find the URL for the ShortCuts, ie., the Twitter Bird that used to appear automatically, as an example.

I tried to take a Screen Shot, but the Screen Shot does not work on the FF Home Page.

Would it be too difficult to put a "Lock" button, similar to the Windows Lock for the Task Bar. PIN does NOT work.

I have not added any extensions or made any other changes that would affect this. Please advise how to correct this, and I don't want to have to follow directions that take me all over the place like go to file such and such and check such and such. That never works and usually ends up screwing up other issues. It worked once, I don't see why it doesn't work now.

Thank you for you time and I look forward to a SIMPLE solution.
