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.

Hyperlinks now broken for FF82.0 latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 on a new MacBook Pro (2020). Suddenly hyperlinks won't open - even after trying all the listed 'normal' solutions, e.g. safe mode, refresh, rebuild profile, link checking using Safari where they DO work, etc. Instead they suddenly open a new window with my homepage.

I downloaded my browsers from the developer sites. I have two Firefox icons on my workspace - one on the desktop and one in the taskbar. Although they appear to be the same icon, they each open two different versions of the Firefox browser. The desktop icon opens the 32-bit and the taskbar opens the 64-bit. I don't like the consistent overriding of my preferences when I open the 32-bit version I often open the browser to find my bookmark toolbar has been deleted. Over and over. Recovering my bookmarks bar is time-consuming and tiresome The 64-bit version has been consistent. I wanted to create a 64-bit desktop icon and have not found a way to do it. When I try to create a desktop shortcut for the 64bit Firefox (it only appears on the taskbar), I have mysteriously got Opera icons for each try. When I create a desktop shortcut from the open home page in the Firefox browser, the shortcut appears with the Startpage or the Opera icon. I learned that icons have their own folders.... so I found and opened one for Mozilla Firefox -but the folder has only three Opera icons and one Startpage icon. I have no idea how the taskbar 64-bit icon has kept its original Firefox appearance from the original install, nor how the 32-bit icon in the desktop has also maintained its appearance. I cannot find any other icon folders in any of the other Mozilla folders. Any suggestions short of starting over with uninstalling the lot and reinstalling?

I work in IT for Cisco (even though my account is using my own email). We have over 100 cases raised where users have updated to V82 and then cannot load Firefox.

We have 2 fixes currently:

1 Downgrade Firefox - but we don't want to do this. 2. Load a new profile.

Is there anything else we can check on. All our users are on Windows 10 Enterprise, there are several versions used from 1803 to the latest, we have a spread of Windows 10 versions where this issue is experienced.

Should there be a better way to resolve this or if there is a root cause that's been found I would be very grateful if this could be passed on.

Navigating on Ebay causes The page isn’t redirecting properly error on some pages.

For example I'm unable to navigate through categories but searching and clicking on a search result seems to work fine.

While viewing an item clicking on a subcategory under the search bar generates this error 100% of the time, everything seems to work great on other browsers though.

Sometimes I'm unable to even view an item when accessed from a google result or even an sponsored listing.

I have tried clearing cookies and cache, allowing ebay to set cookies, disabled ETP, run in safe mode, private mode, reinstalling firefox and finally windows but still the problem persists.

I've tried in a new installation of windows and firefox, if you load more than one digital certificates in the "your certificates" tab, the browser gets stuck in the first digital certificate that you have selected. No matters if you close the browser, when you open it again the browser acts like the certificate is already selected without being prompted when you try to enter a webpage that needs a digital certificate.

For example: Spanish Social Security https://sede.seg-social.gob.es/wps/portal/sede/sede/Ciudadanos/CiudadanoDetalle/!ut/p/z0/rU_LDoIwEPwVOHA02wIhciTGEJQmGkOEXkgDBeujPFqN_r3UO5y8TDKzk5kdoJADlewlWqZFJ9l94gUNSg8HPg4RTmOUbFGUkX0WekcvTjCcuIId0AWTG5gUdyQb0gLtmb6shGw6yA2OD66sj1XxUYtGVKzuFOQIz56gENdhoBHQqpOavzXkite8_DEpJo-DjOCgSjxrVjNplJk4B803LW-ahv_7FRfhdeBDf4vPh7QhKrLtLwe74DE!/

I have marked the checkbox "ask every time" and disabled any master password.

Hi, With Firefox 81.0.2 64-bit running on Windows 7, I can't logout from my account on a very specific site. If I delete the 2 cookies the site wrote on my computer, I'm then presented with the logon window and I'm able to login again but not logout until I delete the 2 fresh cookies the site just put on my computer during the new session. Should I log under a private window, nothing being written to my computer, log out is always possible. I'm also able to log out from my current session with an older version of firefox (50.1.0). This also close the session opened under Firefox 81. At the moment, only one site is behaving like this. I first asked the support of this site. Here's its reply: <<That is an interesting problem you have there! It might be that your session wasn't properly removed from our server but I know that we restarted our webserver 3 days ago, so that should have resolved itself if that was the problem. I don't have any other suggestions, but if a private window works, this suggests an issue with your cookie management of the browser.>>

Please may you help ? TIA

As the title implies, I am unable to open any local files on Firefox. The tab just keeps loading forever and using up all available memory until it crashes the tab. (the browser still remains operational, since the crashing process is a child process of the main browser)

I took a look at the process in GDB and it looks like it's hanging in `read () at /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0`, called from libxul.so. (possibly a spinlock, since it also grinds one of my cpu cores down) I've checked and this problem is not related to my profile, settings, or extensions.

I'm at a complete loss for what to do now to fix this, since I don't have the time or disk space to build a full debug build of Firefox and figure out what's going on.
