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.

I just made the mistake of upgrading Firefox to disable another annoyance that couldn't just simply be toggled in the prior version where it was introduced like it is now. In doing so, it removed the ability to move the Tabs below the Address Bar via userChrome.CSS. What worked previously does not work now. Unfortunately, I forgot this would happen. I feel pretty stupid for that.

How do I get the Tabs placed below the Address Bar this time around?

True Key closes down every time I close Firefox. I have True Key set to close every 7 days...and it works perfectly on my other browsers...yet Firefox won't keep it open. I must logon every time. I have fiddled with the settings, but can't seem to get past this. Can someone help? I want True Key to shut down with my settings in the app...not the browser. This problem has kept me from using Firefox and I would rather use Firefox. Thanks for your help!

Starting last night, I am unable to load a Walmart 'pick up and delivery' page for ordering groceries. I have been loading this same page for over a year without problems. Now I get a blank white page (with no spinning circles). At the suggestion of an agent at the Walmart help line, I had to install Chrome to get around the problem. It loads fine on Chrome. Every now and then, I have similar problems with websites I have been loading for years. This is the website: https://grocery.walmart.com/?adid=1500000000000039636430&veh=wmt ' Are there some recent changes in your programs or theirs that are preventing this page from loading?

How to login into FireFox account at https://accounts.firefox.com/signin - by using Dashlane password manager extension in FireFox (assume that FireFox browser has Dashlane extension properly configured, and that Dashlane auto-login is working correctly with other sites, from FireFox browser)?

It seems that login option is unavailable, but why? Why doesn't FireFox allow to have and use both? Or, at least - choose which one to use, and where? But specifically, on FireFox login? Can it be (at least) configured to work with 2FA hardware solutions, like with Yubico keys?

Also, if I understood this correctly, FireFox Lockwise can import usernames and passwords only from other browsers - but not from password managers? So, let's assume that I want to import everything from Dashlane into FireFox Lockwise, how should I do that in a most secure way? And which data would NOT be imported?

Thanks.
