There's a new feature on Nightly that lets multiple profiles run at the same time. However, since i run my Firefox on a manually-defined (with -profile) profile, any links opened from outside Firefox open in a new window, with the blank default profile. Is there a way to override this?

Hi I keep getting this message "You’ve just been upgraded to Firefox Nightly 67!" every time I open Firefox. I checked my homepage setting and that is set to go to Google.

This message is driving me nuts. I've even tried to block it with add blocker to no avail.

Happy to provide further info re add on's etc. I am running Windows 10 64 bit fully current.

If I try to log on to any Google service the tab crashes. There's also some random websites to cause crashes like stackoverflow.com.

I've done the checking of my system with sfc /scannow and it all came out okay as well as doing safe mode and clearing out all my cookies/data.

Here's the crash reports I keep getting (they are all pretty much the same): bp-04470f75-be59-4080-b624-24eac0190303 bp-69e099ef-573c-4dea-b781-8b5900190303 bp-39dec853-e59b-4316-b580-4bae70190303 bp-d6af900e-b87b-4b7f-9d71-d9ab20190303 bp-e9267ab4-c619-490c-88cd-43a6f0190303

Unless the installer allows a custom location to be chosen, I will no longer be able to use it.

I'm running Neon 5.15 (Linux KDE desktop running on Ubuntu 18.4). I have been running Firefox Nightly. I reinstalled my OS due to a hard drive issue. Now Firefox sporadically fills my network with chatter, preventing other family members from being able to access the internet. I have: tried installing Kubuntu - same issue renaming .mozzilla and allowing Firefox to create a new profile allowing Sync to provide bookmarks, etc. - same issue disabled all addons: extensions, themes, plugins - same issue used standard version of Firefox - same issue

To ensure it's actually Firefox I've been using Chromium (open source version of Chrome) for the past 3 days and have had no issues. I'm using Firefox to write this but have had to close it 3 times due to network chatter.

Please help, I don't want to use Chromium, I want my Firefox back. I've been using it since version 0.5.

As the title says - the post-quantum inofficial fix (linked here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1184503) to move tabs back to the ground will no longer work, when 65 becomes stable. Will they fix it? No: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1508361 . Why did they: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1356920 ... no clue at all from that...

Anyone who is familiar with that piece of ductwork i.e. is able to understand what they call documentation, please advice how to get tabs back to bottom again. I tried some things but due to the fact that the TabsToolbar element seems to have completely changed its entire nature nothing worked to change its position. Could not even manage to find out what is the actual kind of container-elements name that now is said to contain the menubar and tabbar.

I was running Firefox Nightly, opened about:profiles and launched a new instance with a different profile from there. At this time, the green update icon indicated there was an update in queue which was then installed right before starting the new Firefox instance, while the old instance was still running. At first everything was fine, my other profile launched, I did my work, closed it and after some more time also closed my main profile. But then when I restarted Nightly, it brought up a Mozilla Crash Report pretty much instantly... My profile is broken

I could work-around this by starting Firefox Beta which prompted me to Refresh the profile... Now I can launch Firefox again, but all the settings from about:config and my extension settings are gone. Is there any way to bring back those settings?

I made a backup of the profile before the refresh so I'm positive the data is still somewhere... However, just copying the profile.js file doesn't work, then I will get the prompt again to refresh my profile...

Doesn't the Firefox Nightly suppose to tunnel these traffic into https?

Ever since Firefox nightly did an update a few days ago, I have been unable to run it from the normal shortcut. I had to make a copy of the exe and rename it and only then would it work from the renamed file. If I click a link in Thunderbird, for example it still looks for Firefox.exe and not the renamed file. If I change the tile to Firefox.exe.bak so that only Firefox1.exe is accessible, I still have to run it manually from that new file name rather than the default. This is a new install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimate and this is the only time I have ever had problems with nightly. Now, when I restart the browser, it downloads a new firefox.exe and the error returns. I would rather try and fix the problem than remove all traces of it then reinstall, that would be like ignoring the problem and starting over which won't 'fix' the error that others might have.

After nightly update on Monday, my address bar overlaps my tabs. Restarting in safe mode 'solves' the problem. Manually disabling all addons does not - so I'm not sure what other knobs and levers can be worked to fix it.

Thoughts?

I've attached screenshot of the issue, and firefox troubleshooting output.

thanks for any help!

EDIT - okay, I'm unable to upload a screenshot. Just a spinning 'wait' indicator in the "Uploaded images" space. And if I click the "Automatically add" troubleshooting information, it goes to what is essentially a 'page not found'. I've pasted the troubleshooting info into 'educated guess' field, but no idea if that'll actually come through.

Since the last update, my Nightly displays the menu bar and tabs under it in green (the color my Windows is set to) while keeping the active tab black (as it should be, since I'm using the dark theme) but with a blue line along the top (glitch? feature? looks like a glitch). However, when the Nightly window is in the background, like when I switch to a windows explorer window, everything goes back to being uniform black (which is how it should be and how I want it).

What can I do to get it back to normal? Besides changing my whole Windows 10 color theme to black? The constant color change whenever I alt-tab is getting kinda annoying.
