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 to FredMcD

Thank you very much for responding to my post and so quickly. I’ve not yet started Firefox in safe mode but have done the other things you mentioned. As I have dealt with lots of problems (solved now thanks to help from MS, Parallels, Apple) over the last month, I think I’ll wait a few days before moving ahead with this one.

Hi all, I have this problem: my webcam (is an USB camera on a desktop with Windows 10 - Innoo Tech 1080HD - quite a low budget one) does not work on the first on Firefox (using Google meet or any webcam test site), but after I run a FPS test on (https://it.webcamtests.com/fps) it will star working. I already have given the necessary permission for using the camera (checked both on windows and mozilla options) to all sites. Here is the thing: when I start a call in Google meet it says "camera is starting" but nothing appear on the screen. The camera does not work also in all sites for testing the webcam, nothing appear in the screen. But here is the trick: if I run the FPS test on webcamtests.com all start working, but if I close firefox on the next time I will open it, the camera will not start working again. All the times I run the FPS test the camera starts working properly.

How could I solve seriously this problem? thanks Lorenzo

Hello All, I struggle with Firefox and Windows CA.

I have installed in AD Windows CA and I want also use Firefox. I generated certificates, propagated to clients and on Chrome and Edge everything works as well.

Only on firefox i still have prompt about certificate: "MOZILLA_PKIX_ERROR_CA_CERT_USED_AS_END_ENTITY"

Due to tutorials I have set up GPO where i force "security.enterprise_roots.enabled", true" option but it doesn't work.

I have read the problem is with basicConstraints CA but I can't disable those module from certificate template in Windows CA.

I have also accepted certificates in Firefox.

What I can do to force Firefox to accept Windows CA certificates.

Regards

Hello All. Ok. I got one for you. I just hooked up new (stand alone) monitor to my laptop.

It's an Acer SB220Q. Connected fine. But everything is very pixelated and flickers, but only on Firefox and only on the monitor. No issues on my laptop. Google Chrome and Explorer Edge both work fine on the Monitor.

As a mini-geek - started out as computer science major - I've checked all the drivers, graphics, and even uninstalled and reinstalled driver. Nothing changed.

What gives?

I have Set Foxit reader as my default app in the applications section of Firefox options. I have also set "allow" in the privacy and security section of options. When I click on a video file I received via email, a window pops up asking me "how do I want to handle this". It shows that Foxit reader is a default app and I, therefore, click on the box that says "always open files using this app". The next time I click on a different video file, doesn't automatically open. Instead, the how do you want to handle this window pops up again. Can somebody tell me how to correct this problem?

TIA James Birke.

I tried to run the same streams through the opera, everything works fine there. I did not find a solution in the Google search engine. I ask for help. ps PC is powerful enough, and there are no problems with the Internet. The problem lies in the browser itself, but I do not understand where exactly.

I have an HP Elitebook 850 G6 laptop with a Dell U2410 monitor connected through an HP Ultraslim docking station (D9Y32AA).

If I set the Dell monitor as my primary screen (my preference) and open Firefox on the HP screen, the dropdown windows from all the extensions on my address bar are truncated (e.g. Duck Duck Go, Norton, Bitwarden). They don't have scroll bars and I can't get to items in them that I need to. Interestingly, the Firefox dropdowns (View History, Firefox Account, Menu) are also all truncated but they all have scroll bars.

I have discovered that in Windows Display Settings the HP screen Scaling is by default set to "125% (Recommended)". If I set it to 100%, the problem goes away. If I set it to 150%, the dropdowns get longer but still not enough for me to access stuff at the bottom of the extension dropdowns.

I'm not sure if this is an HP screen problem, a Firefox problem or a Windows problem. I'm beginning to think it's an HP one because if I set the HP screen as the primary and set the Dell monitor to 125%, or 150%, there is no problem. However I thought I'd post this here in case it is a Firefox issue. I figure Firefox would want to know about it if it is Firefox-related.

I'd be glad to hear any thoughts on how I might be able to fix this myself, or where you believe the problem lies.

Cheers, Nick.

I want to report a bug which occurs on this webpage alone (maybe also on webpages). https://concept2designs.in/blog/types-of-hinges-for-door/ https://concept2designs.in/blog/types-of-hinges-for-door/

The webpage shows two pictures for each hinge type, instead of one (normal). Tested Opera and Chrome ; only one picture shown, as expected. The first ‘picture’ is invisible. The is only the title corresponding to the hinge and an empty window. The second picture is visible (identical as in other browsers).
