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.

Firefox spellchecker not working in Office 365 Web

Since Firefox updated recently, the Firefox spell checker (right click) no longer works in Outlook 365 Web. It works in every other window (google, gmail, etc.). In other windows, I have all the correct options on the right-click menu:

Undo Cut Copy Paste Delete Select All Check Spelling Languages> Inspect Accessibility Properties Inspect Element

In Outlook, the Firefox right click menu has only the following options :

Undo Cut Copy Paste Delete Select All Inspect Accessibility Properties Inspect Element

The languages and spell check options are not there.

I am a dual language user, and have dictionaries and language packs enabled for both languages in Firefox. "Spell check when I type" is checked, and I regularly use the "Languages" option to switch between languages in all windows.

With the loss of this option in the right-click menu in Outlook, I can no longer check messages in both languages. It seems as if Outlook has disabled the Firefox spell checker. I can spell check using the Outlook spell checker (left click menu) but only in one language.

I saw one solution (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/987216) which suggested I click on "Inspect Element" and see if spellcheck=false. It opened a window with many options (see screenshot), and I have no idea even where to look for "spellcheck=false" to delete it.

The menu used to work properly in previous iterations of Outlook 365 and Firefox; I don't know what has changed, but I would be grateful for any help you can offer in helping me get the "languages" and "spellcheck" options back in my right click menu in Outlook 365.

Thank you!

For forever, I've used one or another .jpg as my home screen image. I've never paid attention to it, but with FF80 the image I've used for the past several years now just sits in the upper left hand corner of my home page. Is there a way to get it to stretch to fit [as it used to , I guess, since the image is the same size it has always been but now doesn't fill the screen]

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,

weil mein Englisch so schlecht ist schreibe ich zweisprachig. Because of my bad english I write in German also.

Ich habe eine kleine Anwendung in Javascript geschrieben und mit dem Befehl window.print() öffne ich das Standardmenü zum Drucken. Wenn mein Anwender nun auf ‚drucken‘ klickt möchte ich das mit einem Zähler mitbekommen. Geht das ? Wenn ja wie ? Kann mir jemand helfen ? Gerne würde ich mich in einem Cafe`dazu mit Dir treffen.

I have written a small app in javascript running inside the browser and with the command window.print() the standard menu will be opened. If my user clicked on this button I want to count this. Is this possible ? If yes how ? Can somebody help me ? I would be happy to meet you in a cafe`or so.

Kind regards / mfg Roland

Hi, One default Brother printer, one other Brother printer connected just once and a HP printer. Word under Win10 shows all three printers, but Firefox only shows the HP printer. This means I can no longer directly print any emails coming in from Hotmail (Outlook), but have to copy/paste each email into Word for printing as I do not want to print on the colour HP.

Solution found: "Refresh" after "Menu" and "Trouble Shooting" in Mozilla does the trick, but works only once unfortunately. Help!

My Firefox wouldn't load, so I looked and apparently you have to uninstall/reinstall. I did that, but now my old bookmarks/profile cannot be loaded.

I get a message stating "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

Can anyone help? I have years and years of bookmarks I need access to!

Thank you.

Merhaba. Bilgisayarıma format attım. Daha sonra Mozilla kurulumunu yaptım ve Mozilla hesabıma giriş yaptım. Daha sonra senkronizasyon işlemini yaptı. Ama eski verileri getirmek yerine yeni, sıfır Mozilladaki verileri eski verilerin üzerine yazdı. Senelerdir bu hesabı kullanıyorum ve maalesef yedekleri yok. Çünkü senkronizasyonda başıma hiçbir zaman böyle bir şey gelmedi. Eski verilerime nasıl ulaşabilirim?

Got email from Mozilla about what I thought was an update. I ended up, after trying to follow the instructions and now have 2 Firefox apps on my screen. I can't tell which is my original because both screens look totally identical other than locations on the top bar that shows icons for my added apps - they are not identical in order. I don't want to use whatever this new version is because it is too confusing for me to follow so how do I get rid of it when I don't know which is my original????? Please help!!!

Acrobat Reader DC has long been installed and routinely updated, per Control Panel>Programs and Features, on my Windows 10 64 bit Home edition PC. Why does Firefox always think I do not have it installed? Is it looking for an add-on, instead of an installed program? Are there Firefox or Windows settings that affect this one way or the other? This is a nuisance of the very minor variety, but I find myself curious why it persists and what causes it.
