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,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Again....I´m starting to get really frustrated over latest firefox as it is becoming more unfriendly and too much for the tech savy. Having got the bookmarks over to the LHS of the screen, (what a struggle) now one simply cannot organize the sites to type and not by name. There is not a single cue click on this. It would be nice to have a restore feature to how the setup was BEFORE the browser crashed.

This morning I opened Firefox only to find that the GUI had changed completely. I have managed to enable the theme and have customised the toolbar, but my extensions are no longer visibile to the right of the search box, and my dictionaries and language packs are disabled without (so it seems) the possibility of enabling them. My bookmarks seem to be intact, but Firefox is now extremely slow (I've been waiting ages for a new tab to open). What is going on, and how can I restore my extensions (including password manager) and language tools?

When I am on a web page for which I wish to use the microphone and camera, the pop up/down up by the URL does indeed show up for authorizing the use of the camera and microphone. However the tick box "Remember this decision" is no longer present.

Once I have hit Allow, the only option that I have when I click on the camera icon to the left of the URL is to click the X next to Allowed Temporarily.

Under Settings/Permissions the Camera does not show the site for which I have given permissions. Interestingly under Microphone the site is in the list under permission but I am still asked when I go to the page.

I have both a built in camera and microphone in this HP but I almost always use my Logitech 9000 as the picture and microphone are much better.

This used to work fine until recently. How do I get the "Remember this decision" option back?

Does Firefox 90 fully respect the default desktop theme and show tab divider lines?

When version 89.2 rolled out, I was highly displeased by the fact that the default theme now no longer properly reflected the Windows theme settings (extremely noticeable on my end, since I use the Windows Classic theme with customized "3D object" colors); this defect had already affected the options dropdown but had now spread to the address/navigation bar, bookmarks toolbar, and scrollbar. This was extremely annoying, especially since none of the add-on themes can properly duplicate that aesthetic function. One of the things I liked about Firefox was that unlike Chrome, Opera, and Edge... it actually still respected the Windows theme settings (which programs like browsers should do by default). And now, that prized trait had been inexplicably and insensibly discarded.

I was further displeased by the removal of the dividing lines between tabs. This made Firefox substantially harder for me to use, almost headache-inducingly so. Whoever you have testing these changes before rollout - if anyone - should be replaced, because this was a massive accessibility downgrade. Unacceptably so.

These changes were so frustrating and ugly, and made the browser so much more difficult for me to use, that I reverted to version 88 and continue to remain on that version.

Does version 90 resolve these issues? If it does, I'll update. But if not.... then in my opinion it should be axed and you should cease pushing it in favor of working on a new version that does fix these poor decisions. And I'll be sticking to version 88 until that happens.

Hi I have 'restore previous session' set in Firefox and it does this except that I usually close FF with all but one window minimised. When I start FF for the next session it opens all the windows and I have to close them all then choose the one I was using last.

Is it possible to get FF to respect the minimisation of windows over sessions?

Thanks in advance to anyone that can help.

Unable to print the following webiste using Firefox for Windows 10 (build 2101):

https://www.duckware.com/tech/wifi-in-the-us.html

Only the first and the last pages had content, the rest were all blank pages. It's a long website, and possibly uses custom font. But then not all pages were printed blank.

Tried resetting printer settings and starting in safe mode. No joy.

Micro$oft Edge printed the website fine.

Firefox seems to freeze up after a while (the duration seems random) when there is a tab with video content playing. The audio can be heard to be playing, but the video does not update and the browser UI itself is unusable. This seems to be a new issue since Firefox 90. I have tried refreshing Firefox, but that did not help.

My add-ons are Bitwarden, uBlock Origin, Decentraleyes, Privacy Badger, Auto Tab Discard, SponsorBlock, Nuke Anything, and Facebook Containers. My about:support is at this Pastebin link.
