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.

I'm trying to add on the Coupon Cabin Sidekick but when I go to the link at Coupon Cabin, they say to: Click the "Add to Firefox" button on the Mozilla Add-ons site. When I use Coupon Cabin's link for "Mozilla Add-ons site" it takes me to https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/couponcabin/ and the message on that link says, "Oops! We can’t find that page" so I did a search for Coupon Cabin add-on in Add-Ons and nothing for Coupon Cabin. What am I doing wrong? I have it on my laptop but can't seem to add it on to my new desktop pc.

Apparently it is possible to write a web page such that it pops up the printer dialogue on load. That is, something in the page automatically launches the print dialogue. Usually that is wanted/expected behavior. For example, you just clicked on a "Print" button on the page. In my case, there is one page I use a lot that tries to auto-print a PDF. But I have PDF's set to open outside of FireFox. So the PDF loads in Acrobat (expected behavior), and FireFox tries to print the HTML page that is open in FireFox. Also presumably expected behavior, but not wanted if it is the PDF I want to print. This has gotten annoying, and so I'm looking for a control that suppresses printing. Ten minutes of googleing and all I can find are articles for the control to suppress the dialogue for printing, and instead print directly to the default printer, ie silent printing. I don't want to suppress the dialog. I want to auto-cancel the print job. That is, I want to disallow a web page from invoking the print dialog at all, by overriding the print instruction. Such as setting could either be set for a specific page, set or globally; either would work for me. Is there a control for that?

When I upgraded to Firefox 83, I discovered that the screenshot function, which previously appeared with a simple right click, had disappeared. I did some reading, and have tried the 'page actions' drop-down' menu, and the 'about:config' modification, but neither, frankly, did a thing. So, what gives? And why me? instead of, say, you? And, oh yeah, a solution would be cool, too...

The add-on in question is FlowCrypt (flowcrypt.com). We need to have a stable, predictable origin to enable in CORS, but the add-on ID changes upon every install. Is there a way for an add-on to have a stable ID/origin? How is this accomplished?

We are using the addons.mozilla.com self-publish mechanism, where I'm having Mozilla sign each release, but then we are self-hosting a json file at https://flowcrypt.com/api/update/firefox the individual xpi fles.

Thanks a ton!

Hello,

So I have the auto fill feature turned on for my logons and credit cards but when I got to enter the information, the drop down pops up with my credit card choices but then doesn't let me select and add the credit card info. This is happening on all sites I've tried before. Just wondering if anyone can help with this.

Thank you! Merritt

I don't know which version had this change but not long before, I could type "y " (note the extra space character) and press enter to go to Youtube home page via address bar because "y" is my Youtube search engine shortcut word.

Now, when I try to do that with the latest Firefox, the search bar stylistically changes to indicate I'm searching in Youtube but pressing enter without typing any search term no longer launches the Youtube home page. I don't see the reasoning behind removing this feature, so I'm posting it here to let it be known. I hope the change is a bug and not intended.

For some reason the shortcut ctrl + shift + p does not work when I use the left ctrl and left shift keys on my keyboard. If I use a right ctrl or right shift or both then the shortcut works. My left shift and ctrl keys both work. In fact other shortcuts in firefox such as reopen closed windows (ctrl + shift + n) works with the left keys. I have no issues opening private windows with the key combo in chrome so is this an issue/bug in firefox? Or is it a fault with my keyboard? Any help is much appreciated

My Firefox just updated and added an extra bar "For quick access, place your bookmarks here on the bookmarks toolbar. As I had already turned off the bookmarks toolbar because it used up unnecessary screen real estate, I am more than a little annoyed that a bar advertising something that I don't want, explicitly turned off, and no apparent way to remove, has suddenly appeared. If I am on a screen only 900px high, as one of the screens I use is, this is exceptionally annoying. Can it be switched off, and how? Adding unnecessary rubbish used to be the province of Internet Explorer. It would be a shame if FF followed that path.
