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.

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

When I take a screen shot, the screen turns almost black and the selection rectangles are grey. However after exiting out of screenshot mode, it takes 5 or 6 seconds for the back light to recover. Is this a software or hardware issue? My laptop is only a year old, a Lenovo Legion y530-15ICH. Has anyone else experienced this issue?

Hello, after setting up Account Sync in Firefox, I received an email with a subject of something like "Your friendly reminder: how to finish synchronization setup". I am a Ukrainian user with an Ukrainian IP and English settings in my firefox account. But for some reason, the email sent to me was in a foreign language (Russian) which I don't know. I have no idea what is written there and why the email is in Russian. Is there a way to receive emails in Ukrainian or English in the future and not in Russian? With regards, Nick

Possible causes are that security software if blocking access to places.sqlite in the Firefox profile folder.

Did you try to close and restart Firefox or reboot the computer ?

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I do not have any security software that would suddenly block access and it was working fine until yesterday morning.

I have closed and restarted Firefox several times and followed your advice. I have also rebooted my computer.

In the last couple of days since the Firefox update to my Macbook Pro (to Firefox 78.9) when I do a Google Search for some item, and the results come up with the individual windows for each seller's item just below the search bar, when I click on an item the little window just goes blank. It used to take me to the website which was linked to that window. The strange thing is now it only links to anything sold my Amazon. Any other links are dead. It works fine in Safari and Chrome browsers, but not in Firefox any more. I have restarted the browser, the computer and closed all the tabs in the browser before restarting, Still no good. Any help or suggestions would be great!

I am a Senior Visison Disabled Veteran. I have used various Firefox Browsers over the past few years on many different devices.

I have used the same firefox account and password and username/email during that time.

My background was in electronics, E.E., Sci, etc. When I was in the Mil-Intel-Indust complex I came to know all electronic systems starting in the 1950's where backdoored. So I have tried to be carefull when setting up and using Firefox browsers. I thought I had delebritly set it up to NOT RECORD any email, username, or password EVER ! To prevent my info from leaking out.

Today I downloaded a free copy of NordPass from their main website. Part of the set up is an option to import from other browsers, etc all emails/usernames and passwords to store them in one location under one password in NordPass.

When I seclected the "Secure Notes" for firefox I got a BIG SUPPRIZE ! There were 11 entries. Yes there was my bank account password and username my firefox account password and username my google account password and username etc and two entries I am in the proccess of trying to locate and find out who they are ! just two urls and usernames and passwords that I never did create or visit thoses urls.

I am requesting your help in deleting this info from my account and keeping all my book marks intact.

I am also interested in preventing this from ever happening again.

Any ideas ?

For many years, My firefox locks when I have many tabs.

I always auto-update firefox 64bit windows standard korean version.

I today found locking is because of CISCO OpenH264 plugin.

It is updated from CISCO server, not from firefox server.
