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.

[If this question was previously answered, I am unable to find it.]

The Setup: I have dual displays: a 2021 iMac 27 inch (used as the start-up display of course) and a 2009 iMac 27inch. The Problem: Firefox windows change resolution when the window is moved between monitors. Windows from applications from Apple (Safari...! etc.) and other (e.g., Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Zoom, Adobe Elements) all retain their resolution when they are moved to the second display. Firefox does not, and windows are displayed at a significantly reduced resolution. I have been unable to alter any display settings or Firefox settings to eliminate the "blow-up" loss of resolution when the window is moved.

(Yes, the text and display can be improved using the text/display commands in Firefox, but this kludge adjustment means the window displays poorly when returned to the first monitor.)

I don't understand why Firefox resolution behaves this way when the windows in all the other applications I've listed it is unchanged, particularly Safari which is displaying HTML for the same graphics and text.

Hello, A url with the #anchor not refreshing to proper position. I click on this link UPC on this website page: https://www.b4usa.com/princeton-tec/ and the link opens to top of anchor page, not at anchor position.

When I refresh the page with the anchor: https://www.b4usa.com/upc/#twenty it still does not take me to the proper page position.

The only way to get to the proper position is to right click on the princeton page, most people do not know how to open links that way.

This problem also is occurring on the android phone.

How can I fix this?

Thanks in advance for your help, Steve Moss

I have one pinned tab that I want to keep the sound muted on because it's a simple game that I play occasionally. The problem I'm having though is whenever I close the lid on my laptop for the night, then reopen it in the morning, the tab is no longer muted. Laptop is set to sleep when closing the lid. I just want to set the tab to mute permanently. Is there a way to do that without adding yet another extension to my growing list of extensions? Or is this unmute behavior not supposed to happen and something is amiss? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Windows 10 Asus VivoBook 1T C drive 1T D drive 16G ram

When trying to use the keyboard in certain comments sections, the keyboard malfunctions. It toggles between caps and lowercase for no reason, and does not actually allow me to type anything until this behavior stops.

Furthermore, the microphone only works for a few seconds, and then it turns off whether I have finished speaking or not.

Unfortunately I do not know what comment platform the website is using, as it is not identified.

I have a new Windows 11 installation (Fresh) and all my browsers are working ok except for FF. Whenever I click a link, the first window opens properly but when clicking a second link FF always gives me the error "firefox is already running but not responding. the old firefox process must be closed."

Ofcourse I searched the net and tried all the suggestions on this support page and what I googled. I installed FF Dev Edition, which shows the same issue. I created other profiles, same issue. In the end I tried (several times) to uninstall FF thoroughly (uninstalled, manually removed all installer files, appdata files, and even cleaned the registry) but all to no avail.

I am using Edge now, but I don't want to. Please help!
