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.

Extension dropdown windows truncated

I have an HP Elitebook 850 G6 laptop with a Dell U2410 monitor connected through an HP Ultraslim docking station (D9Y32AA).

If I set the Dell monitor as my primary screen (my preference) and open Firefox on the HP screen, the dropdown windows from all the extensions on my address bar are truncated (e.g. Duck Duck Go, Norton, Bitwarden). They don't have scroll bars and I can't get to items in them that I need to. Interestingly, the Firefox dropdowns (View History, Firefox Account, Menu) are also all truncated but they all have scroll bars.

I have discovered that in Windows Display Settings the HP screen Scaling is by default set to "125% (Recommended)". If I set it to 100%, the problem goes away. If I set it to 150%, the dropdowns get longer but still not enough for me to access stuff at the bottom of the extension dropdowns.

I'm not sure if this is an HP screen problem, a Firefox problem or a Windows problem. I'm beginning to think it's an HP one because if I set the HP screen as the primary and set the Dell monitor to 125%, or 150%, there is no problem. However I thought I'd post this here in case it is a Firefox issue. I figure Firefox would want to know about it if it is Firefox-related.

I'd be glad to hear any thoughts on how I might be able to fix this myself, or where you believe the problem lies.

Cheers, Nick.

The webpage shows two pictures for each hinge type, instead of one (normal). Tested Opera and Chrome ; only one picture shown, as expected. The first ‘picture’ is invisible. The is only the title corresponding to the hinge and an empty window. The second picture is visible (identical as in other browsers).

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?

Hello! My question is related to a post in Google's blog: https://security.googleblog.com/2019/08/protecting-chrome-users-in-kazakhstan.html Also, see Mozilla's post on this: https://blog.mozilla.org/security/2019/08/21/protecting-our-users-in-kazakhstan/

Now, this happens again in Kazakhstan. Today, 6th of December our mobile service providers sent SMS to everyone living in Nur-Sultan (former Astana), Kazakhstan regarding some kind of "Cyber training" and the urge to install a certificate on the devices. Examples: https://beeline.kz/ru/events/news/certificate?utm_source=mainpage-banner-1 (Russian) https://www.kcell.kz/en/product/trust-certificate (English)

The certificate is attached. Please, check the issue and if possible block it asap.

Thank you!

Changed and saved my password in two places (including my password manager). Went in to sign out in my account setting in the triple bars. The "Sign In" "pop-up" that states at the top "Pass Required-Mozilla Firefox" and "Please enter Primary Password" displays (see image). When I enter my newly changed password either by copy and paste or manual entry it will not accept my most recent change. The reason I changed my password is every time I open Firebox that same sign in pop-up block displays asking for my password even though I am already signed in. I cannot login anywhere in the "Foxfire Lockwise". no where where it requires me to sign in or even sign out will it allow me to enter my password. And that Password sign in pop up keep popping up at odd times. I even Refresh and cleared startup cache. Should I just delete Firefox completely and start over? Have had Firefox for well over 15 years.

Hi! I live in the Kazakhstan and again like in previous year our goverment force us(right now it is only in Astana, but after they will force whole country to do that) to install their "security certificate" to collect and analyze all our data. All social media sites have been blocked, all sites with VPN services were also blocked(only kaspersky secure connection is "downloadable", but anyway it doesn't work). Can someone give me free VPN service that don't require registration and can give like 100-200mb traffic. I am not tech-pro, so i need more simple way to get access like install something and press "connect" button. Thank You!

Hi, I’m trying to do a sync for the first time but it’s not working. It's between 2 profiles on the same Mac using the latest Firefox 83.0 on Catalina 10.15.7, and I need to sync only the history from the old profile to the new one. The new one has everything I need set up except for the history (several years worth from the old profile). After opening both profiles using the about:profiles page, logging in w/ each having a different device name, and selecting History only, I ran the sync but nothing transferred. I found a log subfolder in the weave folder within the new profile folder and it shows a lengthy error report autosaved as a plain text file, but I received no error when doing the sync. It shows "FirefoxAccounts ERROR Pairing channel error: Error: WebSocket unexpectedly closed".

If I can’t sync between profiles how can I import/export just the history? I tried doing a copy/paste and drag & drop between profiles like you can with bookmarks but it didn’t work. I read that history and bookmarks, along w/ other data are both stored in the places.sqlite file, so I can’t just replace the new one w/ the old one or I will then lose things I need.
