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.

Hello good people, so I have this problem. All my life I'm using Mozilla and this is the first time I can't fix something on my own.

In the picture, I share you can see that Mozilla is usage CPU and Power too. I have only two (2) tabs open (google and your site). Don't know why it's showing that are open X tabs and going crazy. I try everything on in the net. Remove all plugins, add-ons, try everything it says to do in the options, even reinstall Mozilla. The PC is free from virus.

Can you help?

Thank you for your time.

Firefox colour addon removed the whole existing theme, replaced everything with it's default selections.

I use a custom theme 200sx.lv, I just want to change the text colours on the menu bar, tab bar and bookmark bar. But the color addon destroyed the whole theme when I made any single change. I had disable and enable the theme to restore it. How do I import the theme to color addon so I can edit it?

Every time there's an update to Firefox the icon on the taskbar disappears. In the taskbar on my Windows 10 computer it also shows a new number, next to "Firefox", when I hover over the icon, every time there's an update. Before today's update it was 23, now it's 24 when I pin it again, and nope, I haven't got 24 tabs open or anything else counting 24 going on here. Thought I'd hear if someone knew how to fix this issue? I've tried pinning it from the folder where the .exe is, and from the start menu, un/reinstalling, and also searching the web a lot for answers but seems like I'm the only one with this problem, and it's kind of hurting my workflow. Thanks in advance!

So when i go to click on zoom links in firefox, it opens the webclient of zoom (website that says join meeting and or download here if prompt is not shown) and opens the zoom app. BUT that is it, it does not actually join the meeting on the zoom app i have to manually prompt the download now link, or copy and paste the link into the zoom join option. Why cant I just click the zoom link and have it automatically join the meeting without needing to prompt the download option or manually having to enter the zoom meeting id?

Add-on to rename bookmarks with a prefix of it's Upload Date? (NOT the added-to-BM date).

I'm looking to sort a group of bookmarks so I can view them in the order they were uploaded. NOT the order that they were added to my own Bookmarks. Right now, I have to go to each page, use Add-To-Bookmarks cntl-D, and manually edit the BMs name by adding a date prefix I read from that page. IE: "2021-02-12 - {original BM's name}" that way when I do an alpha sort, it also is listed by Upload Date.

Thanks for any add-on or functionality suggestions!
