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.

Hi there :-)

W.r.t. FireFox 77, I need to know if the 'Open Menu' button on the far right of the default installation is PROGRAMMATICALLY customizable ? I want to remove it as part of hardening the browser for a desktop application that must be accessible via the Internet. While I respect the fact that client-side hardening is not best practice, let's not go there please :-)

I have successfully used userChrome.css, but I don't want to have to place this file manually nor manually set the 'toolkit.legacyUserProfileCustomizations.stylesheets' preference to 'true' on all the client machines, but rather manage this centrally on the server side as is possible with autoconfig.cfg together with the autoadmin.global_config_url preference setting. Is it possible?

I have also tried specifying the 'browser.uiCustomization.state' in the autoconfigfile.js file changing the default 'about:config' setting from this >>>

{"placements":{"widget-overflow-fixed-list":[],"nav-bar":["back-button","forward-button","stop-reload-button","home-button","customizableui-special-spring1","urlbar-container","customizableui-special-spring2","downloads-button","library-button","sidebar-button","fxa-toolbar-menu-button"],"toolbar-menubar":["menubar-items"],"TabsToolbar":["tabbrowser-tabs","new-tab-button","alltabs-button"],"PersonalToolbar":["personal-bookmarks"]},"seen":["developer-button","webide-button"],"dirtyAreaCache":["nav-bar","toolbar-menubar","TabsToolbar","PersonalToolbar","widget-overflow-fixed-list"],"currentVersion":16,"newElementCount":10}

to this ('pref') format >>> {\"placements\":{\"nav-bar\":[\"stop-reload-button\",\"customizableui-special-spring1\",\"urlbar-container\",\"customizableui-special-spring2\",\"downloads-button\"]},\"dirtyAreaCache\":[\"nav-bar\"],\"currentVersion\":16,\"newElementCount\":10}

but while the other controls are removed, the 'Open Menu' button as well as the 'Back' and 'Forward' arrows are not removed even after restarting Firefox. Is there another preference that should be used to remove or hide at least the 'Open Menu' button?

Thanks for your help. APB

But the link gets converted to the following when I log on to Firefox, and the screen freezes a blank white:

This same link works if I sign on with Google Chrome, but I prefer to use Firefox.

Hello. I like to end my text conversations with this cute little fish: <{~~< But it's quite difficult to type on a desktop, so I made a shortcut to it in my mac OS, by typing pf. It works everywhere on my machine but on firefox, which is my preferred browser for chatting, so it's the only time I really need to use it. It's a serious buzzkil, especially since it SHOULD WORK, but doesn't. Can anyone help? I'm on a brand new machine, with a brand new (June 29 2020) download of Firefox with the french canadian language pack installed (it didn't work before I put the language pack on either).

Thanks in advance.

PC版firefoxで、bluetoothイヤホンをペアリングして、Youtube等の動画を試聴しています。 イヤホン側に一時停止/再生と音量調節のボタンがあるのですが、firefoxでの視聴時には一時停止/再生の操作ができません。 音量調節は可能で、スマホのYoutubeアプリだと一時停止/再生が出来る為、イヤホン側の不具合ではないようです。

firefoxの設定を変更する事で、イヤホンのボタンでの操作が可能になるでしょうか? あるいは、拡張機能を導入することで、可能になるのでしょうか? 可能だとすれば、方法をご教授いただきたいです。 よろしくお願いします。

After the latest update on firefox I am no longer able to give facebook the permissions to use my Microphone which means i can no longer make calls. My hardware and software for my headset is up to date, as i use it on Discord with no issues what so ever. when i go into Privacy & security and click on Microphone permissions, it has removed all the websites that i have previously given permission to use it and am unable to add any new ones, the block new requests asking to access your microphone is also unchecked, this is really starting to frustrate me and hope it can get fixed ASAP

I am a long time user of FF but since the last updates the home page setting in options does not save or work. Keeps giving me a blank page. If I use the home icon on the tool bar, it is correct but on start up, only a blank even though it set for something else. Seems odd that it won't work correctly on startup. I am using win7 64 bit PC.

Hello, I was wondering is it possible to get Reader Mode on PC to fill the whole screen space instead of the stripe in the middle? Its quite useful for getting only the relevant text out of a web page and yet it feels the amount of screen space that's actually useful is becoming less and less lately. (I'm hoping for a solution that doesn't include any scripts, but if they're necessary I'd welcome any solution really)

I have a dual screen windows 10 system. I use both Firefox and Chrome. Chrome is set as my default browser because I use many Google apps. However, when I search the internet and open non-google programs I use Firefox. I would like to have Firefox always open on a designated screen. Is there a way I can set Firefox to always default to a designated screen.

I look forward to your answer.

A while ago firefox started to take over as the program for mailto:. I even tried to stop it by changing firefox mailto to use outlook. Didn't help. I don't often use mailto, but I noticed it when I started outlook it said it wasn't the default program for everything and asked if I wanted to set it. Kept happening. Eventually I looked into default options for outlook and found mailto was set to firefox.

THEN I opened a downloaded PDF from a different browser and it opened it in firefox. I have Nuance PDF. And yes, now often when I start that it tells me that it's not the default.

And yes, I have or set the program for PDFs in FF to be Nuance PDF.

Outside of stopping using firefox, how do I get it to stop inserting itself as the default program? YES, at times I set FF to the default browser; did some recent upgrade make it mean to also set it to the default for all programs, and how can I set it to the default browser (which I do for some things I want to run at times), without stealing all the progam defaults?

WIn7Pro, FF 78.0.1 (64-bit)

This issue is common to all browsers, but with how customizable Firefox is, I'm hoping it might help me circumvent the issue somehow.

My screen resolution is 1920 x 1080, but I use Windows settings to scale elements to 125% because my eyes are bad and I want to see the Windows and other software's interfaces better. As a result, the inside of Firefox, websites themselves, are also scaled. My resolution is reported as 1536 x 864 pixels. In most scenarios, this isn't really a problem, since in theory zooming out to 80% restores a website's appearance to normal.

But while developing, it can be weird. For instance, when using mobile simulation mode. And the reflex of pressing Ctrl+0 to restore default appearance is deeply ingraned. Also when someone tells me there's a problem with the website at X zoom, I have to calculate what that zoom level is equal to for me.

So I'm wondering if there's something I can do, other than fiddle with zoom all the time, to see what my website actually looks like while keeping my interface enlarged.
