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.

This is driving me crazy. I've been using Chrome for 4 years and I switch to Firefox because it is more faster and smooth than Chrome, my issue is that I'm a writer so, on the website that I work on we got this shortcuts to put bold, cursive, etc, and they begin with Alt + something, every time that I'm trying to use them I got the bookmark on the menu bar open and doesn't let me use the shortcut on the website.

There is any way to delete completely the menu bar? I already got the ui.key.menuAccessKeyFocuses on false, but the shortcuts as Alt + B still open the bookmarks or Alt + H opens the history on the menu. I really need a fix for this guys.

I use FFox on Windows 10 and Android, version 89.0.1 64 bit. It is not my default browser. When I open FFox sometimes I am connected to my account and can synchronise and sometimes not. I therefore have to sign into account using email + password which I have to look up. Please provide clear settings for W10 + Android so that I always sign in and can sync. Using the QR code on my monitor NEVER works . Regards T J Green

Firefox is only allowing me to paste in plain text—if I copy rich text and paste into Gmail, Docs, or anywhere else that supports rich text, I only get plain text. Chrome handles the same copied text correctly.

I just recently started using mac being a windows user. While I understand this is not really a game breaker, why is Firefox the only program that ignores my preference changes? Going to settings>keyboard>modifier keys> and then swapping ctrl with the command key fixes my desire to have ctrl+ commands work with every single program, except Firefox still uses the command key as its shortcut initiator no matter what I do. I have seen a few posts from at least 3 years ago and as recent as 2020, does Mozilla ever plan to implement a shortcut menu for its users or are we stuck with using 3rd parties to fix this for us? I still use both PC and Mac.

Hello, Recently I tried using my email to create an account for a website. Firefox prompted me to save the password, to wich I accepted but it didn't save my ID. The next day I couldn't login into the same website, I've checked my credentials and they were correct. So what I'm asking is, Is there any way I could see wich ID's I've used to try and login into a specific website?

PS: I know this could be a website side error, but I'm trying to check everything. PPS: I apologize if my writing is confusing, english is not my native language.

If an item is sent to the Printer, the whole page will appear in the upper left-hand part of the paper with the font so small, it is barely readable?? A similar question has been asked before but the workaround, switch, fix was not evident or workable. I have already checked the Printer settings and it appears that there is nothing in the machine that can be changed. Does anybody have any idea of what is going on here ? There is no memory of anything previously being changed Re: printing page format--it just started for no apparent reason.

Laptop 1 has bookmark //a.html Laptop 2 has bookmark //b.html Both devices log in with bookmark sync turned on.

Q1. Do both devices now have bookmarks a and b?

Q2. Laptop 1 deletes bookmark a. Does that delete bookmark a from device 2?

Q3. Laptop 1 adds //c.html. Does that add c to device 2?

It would be very nice if mozilla would officially explain what happens when bookmarks are synced. Just saying that they are synchronized does not explain what happens. Synchronization can be accomplished in multiple ways.

The last few versions of Firefox will not print certain emails from Yahoo correctly. The printing of the body of the email will start more than half way down the page, sometimes on page 2. The item being printed fits on one page. Page settings are correct. Have reset printer settings in Firefox. Started Firefox without any extensions, no change.

The same emails print perfectly on Opera, Vivaldi, and Google Chrome.

Thanks for any suggestions.
