I duped my old profile on Firefox to isolate my different use case. I duped it by overwriting everything from a new profile folder created with about:profiles by contents of the old profile folder. At first the pinned tiles I changed on the new about:home also changed the old profile. Then I found that extentions enabled in Private mode are also shared between the profiles and will leak through it. Just last night I found that even browsing history is added to both profiles without the other one caching favicons, deleting history does not affect the other one though. User configuration seems to be isolated though including toolbar layout and extentions can be disabled independently. I found this to only affect duped profiles as I created a fresh new one to test the above phenomenon and none of them are present. In addition to this machine, my GNU/Laptop also has the same issue with Librewolf and profiles are only duped from the respective browsers, so I think it is OS agnostic.

seriously finding that it appears Everyone is losing open tabs with the update mozilla- this is a serious breach of trust

i have looked at several answers to the MANY posts with the exact same issue and it appears that the only solution is to have programmer level skills or suck it up

i have loved firefox for Years - and i have Never heard of anyone having such a stupid upgrade problem with No Warning

have you lowered your standards that much

(as this is the only place i can offer feedback, as there is nothing to actually connect to mozilla - take this as a small request for assistance from the community and a large wtw to the company)

Hi, I've got an issue when I ask to download and save a file from a website. The macOS finder window is well openened, but partially mixed with the current web page. it not put on the top. Most often, I must open another app, like Safari and come back to Firefox in order to put it on the top and to be able to change the file name, select de folder and at the end save the file. Attached sample.

It is the same when I ask from Firefox menu to Save As a web page.


Thank you for your feedback.

Firefox used to have a setting to open 1, 3 or all previous session tabs, now that option is gone and defaults to open all tabs. The problem didn't affect me until I made a full Win 8.1 64-bit reinstall, I overwrote the entire previous profile with about 950 tabs; I made sure that profile specific files weren't overwritten, I checked internally with Total Commander looking for the specific profile name in all files of the old profile; anyway, the new firefox with the old profile quickly killed any operational capability of my PC, not even the mouse or the keyboard lights would work, until many minutes later, then slowly I could move the mouse to the upper right corner for the [ X ] to kill firefox. While trying to uninstall Firefox uninstaller offered to "refresh" so I did, and here I am

Is there something in about:config I can modify? I really need that option back, is a royal PIA as Firefox is working now, and a very very stupid idea to remove such important option.

Plugins, add-ons have nothing to do, Can anyone let Mozilla know about this, they killed the Feedback option on the Browser.

Setting up a new Win10 machine, and trying to copy Firefox profile from old Win7 machine. First, I located the profile(s) on the old machine at:

   C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\2m1b67pe.<username>

Next, I copied (via network share) the file '2m1b67pe.<username>' to the new machine, at

  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles 
  C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Next, I opened 'run' and executed 'firefox -p'.

When it opened, it only listed the default profiles, 'default' and 'default-release'.

So how do I get it to recognize the profile I copied?

Hello together,

we need to change the property section from "Mozilla Firefox x64 de" to another value for example "Mozilla Firefox 92.0.1 x64". We made the changes in Orca and saved the "Firefox Setup 92.0.1.msi" file. But when we install the file, we still see in the control panel programs and features the original entry "Mozilla Firefox x64 de". Please, tell us what's wrong. We successfully modify all other possible applications in this way. Thank you for your advice.

I purchase audiobooks on Audible.com using my Mac (OS Catalina). When I download a purchase Firefox sends it as an MP4 file which is incompatible with the apps to play the audiobook. Safari and other browsers do no do this - the files come as an .aax file. Even after I have an .aax file I cannot play it using Firefox because Audible.com does not recognize my registered computer. I get an error message: Document "LicenseForCustomerToken" couldn't be opened. Incompatable with QuickTime Player. FYI: QuickTime Player is a video (MP4) player app on my computer. So, once again, Firefox makes the .aax file appear like an MP4 file to Audible. It's doing some kind of unrequested and unwanted conversion of .aax files to MP4.

I hope you can fix this in your next update. i've worked with Audible to solve this issue, but they cannot help and are telling me it is a "known issue" with Firefox and recommend I use a different browser.

Has anyone an idea of ​​the reasons why?
