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.

From FF 83 change notes: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

But I found out that I don't like new behavior, bc I never use it, and it requires more clicking for me.

Is there a way to restore immediate searching without using shift?

While I appreciate the fact someone took to time to translate the dev tools to another language, this feature is highly inconvenient, it make it all weird and different names I am not used to and it make it hard to explain to someone else in other language or watch toturials where they use the English version. This go beyond bad when the language is from right to left, then the all interface looks even weirder.

And as for now I am forced to go back to chrome because this make firefox dev tools impossible to use for me

Up until a few weeks ago, I rarely ever had problems with zooming in and out on Websites in the Firefox Browser. But as of late, zooming out no longer works.

Zooming in and out via Ctrl + Pinch does work, but it's simply horrible as it's way too sensitive and near impossible to handle.

I checked my Windows Settings as well, but the problem doesn't appear to lie there.

I'd appreciate any type of input or help.

When my Firefox browser is open and I open a saved PDF file (previously converted and saved from a Word document) it opens in the browser as a Word document. Also, Word files open in the browser. I have changed the action from the content type in the General Section under Options to use my PDF and Word 16 applications. I noticed that the content type for Word is MS Word 1997-2003, which is pretty old and not sure why that would be the content in 2020. Could this be causing the issue? This is frustrating because I want to be working within the applications themselves and not in a Firefox tab. Attached is two screenshots of the Applications in the Options General section that show all the application options.

I'm trying to add on the Coupon Cabin Sidekick but when I go to the link at Coupon Cabin, they say to: Click the "Add to Firefox" button on the Mozilla Add-ons site. When I use Coupon Cabin's link for "Mozilla Add-ons site" it takes me to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/couponcabin/ and the message on that link says, "Oops! We can’t find that page" so I did a search for Coupon Cabin add-on in Add-Ons and nothing for Coupon Cabin. What am I doing wrong? I have it on my laptop but can't seem to add it on to my new desktop pc.

Apparently it is possible to write a web page such that it pops up the printer dialogue on load. That is, something in the page automatically launches the print dialogue. Usually that is wanted/expected behavior. For example, you just clicked on a "Print" button on the page. In my case, there is one page I use a lot that tries to auto-print a PDF. But I have PDF's set to open outside of FireFox. So the PDF loads in Acrobat (expected behavior), and FireFox tries to print the HTML page that is open in FireFox. Also presumably expected behavior, but not wanted if it is the PDF I want to print. This has gotten annoying, and so I'm looking for a control that suppresses printing. Ten minutes of googleing and all I can find are articles for the control to suppress the dialogue for printing, and instead print directly to the default printer, ie silent printing. I don't want to suppress the dialog. I want to auto-cancel the print job. That is, I want to disallow a web page from invoking the print dialog at all, by overriding the print instruction. Such as setting could either be set for a specific page, set or globally; either would work for me. Is there a control for that?

When I upgraded to Firefox 83, I discovered that the screenshot function, which previously appeared with a simple right click, had disappeared. I did some reading, and have tried the 'page actions' drop-down' menu, and the 'about:config' modification, but neither, frankly, did a thing. So, what gives? And why me? instead of, say, you? And, oh yeah, a solution would be cool, too...

The add-on in question is FlowCrypt (flowcrypt.com). We need to have a stable, predictable origin to enable in CORS, but the add-on ID changes upon every install. Is there a way for an add-on to have a stable ID/origin? How is this accomplished?

We are using the addons.mozilla.com self-publish mechanism, where I'm having Mozilla sign each release, but then we are self-hosting a json file at https://flowcrypt.com/api/update/firefox the individual xpi fles.
