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.

Hallo Zusammen

Seit geraumer Zeit ist Firefox leider sehr von der Suche auf google.com überzogen.. Um relevantere Suchergebnisse zu erhalten und mal schnell auf eine Suche nur innerhalb der Schweiz zu wechseln sollen unsere Rechner immer über google.ch suchen!

Bis vor kurzem war noch ein Add-On namens "Google ch" erhältlich, was nun nicht mehr auffindbar ist. Ein eigener Suchstring konnte ich bis jetzt auch nirgens eingeben und beim drücken des "Suchmaschine hinzufügen" Buttons, kam nur die Suchseite der Add-On's, was natürlich nicht weiterhilft..

Das ändern der Suchregion in den Einstellungen der Website ist keine Option!

Gerne kann google.com auch gleich komplett ersetzt werden. Es kommt nämlich bei der Eingabe von google im Suchfeld auch immer gleich google.com als Vorschlag obwohl diese Seite nie aufgerufen wird.. Sehr sehr mühsam das Ganze!

Besten Dank für eure Informationen wie dies behoben werden kann.

Gruss Roman

MacBook Pro 2019 MacOS 10.15x Firefox 76.0.1 64-bit I've successfully reset various hotkeys for Firefox on Mac to use ctrl (^) instead of command. To do this I used System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Shortcuts -> App Shortcuts where there's a section for Firefox.app. There, I've added these resets: Cut ^X Copy ^C Paste ^V Select All ^A Find in This Page... ^F All of these work, except ^V for Paste. The key combo even shows in the Firefox menu bar Edit pull-down menu. But when I have a string of text in the clipboard and use ^V nothing happens (oh, I do see a little flash of the Edit option on the Firefox toolbar any time I hit ^V, but the clipboard content isn't pasted. I still have to use command-V, which is so annoying for this long-time Windows user who has control key shortcuts burned into his muscle memory. Anyone have any idea why ^V reset isn't working?

Firefox cannot properly access the microphone; it flickers in the system tray and shows that Firefox is rapidly using and then not using the microphone. When I mute the microphone in-app, the flicker stops, and the microphone icon is steady. People cannot hear me speak. I've done all basic troubleshooting, restarted my computer and Firefox, restored all computer settings, done a Firefox reset, and so forth. The microphone works fine elsewhere, including on the same app in Chrome.

For instance:

I open whatsapp.com as a web app in a site specific browser instance using firefox --ssb https://web.whatsapp.com

Firefox works well for this. However, if I receive a Whatsapp message with a pdf attachment and I click on it, firefox only says the attachment has been downloaded but does not say where and I cannot find the file in any obvious location.

Without --ssb, in the same whatsapp web app clicking on an attachment triggers firefox to show a window saying whether to open the file with an application or download it and in the latter case, FF either downloads to the default download location or asks me where to download (depending on my settings).

When I start to type in Facebook the address bar always comes up with the following site "facebook.adblockplus.me/"

I've changed search engines, cleared the cache, history, etc., both from within Firefox and with Privazer and this link keeps coming up when I try to go to Facebook. I don't believe it is in my bookmarks as there is no star next to it so I'm not sure where it is "getting" this suggestion from but would like to fix this issue.

Any idea how to "remove" this suggestion as nothing I have tried seems to work.

Okay, so I used to be a big Firefox user the past couple of years, but I switched back to Chrome and then the new Edge. I understand Firefox is the most powerful browser, but all Chromium browsers tend to display the page first. I looked a little bit online for some settings in the about:config to speed up Mozilla, but nothing really worked.

How can I prioritize page speed display time over power? Is there even a way to do this? I prefer Firefox over Chromium browsers, it's just the page load speed always tends to be slower.

Thank you!

I'm using a completely clean (reinstalled) version of firefox. I'm not logged into a profile. I'm still having the same problem.

If I go onto twitter for the first time, it loads fine and I can move around pages.

As soon as I leave the site, then return, none of the internal twitter timelines load - I get the twitter message 'something has gone wrong'.

If I delete all my cookies and revisit twitter, it works. But again, if I leave the site and come back immediately, the problem comes back and nothing loads.

Anyone experienced this/know what I can do?

Thanks

I started experiencing an issue where my Firefox browser freezes up, tabs won't close or open and the "close" x on the top hoses up also and the only way to close out is via task manager.

If I try opening Firefox via any other method then using "run" Firefox does an update then prompts me for logging into an account which if I do prompts with a database error and then just closes. So the only way to resolve this is to run "firefox -allow-downgrade" which restores my Firefox browser and previous session. Tried un-installing and re-installing; however, same issue persisted.

We've observed that the since at least 73.0 (an much likely earlier than that) the default /norestart behavior of a silent install results in an essentially unusable running browser that is unable to open new tabs/windows, or those new tabs/windows are blank and unable to load new content. It seems as though we should probably switch to /promptrestart

Is there a better method for using the silent install for updates, but leaving the running browser functional until the user chooses to restart?

Notably, the Maintenance Service is not installed, and uninstalled if found. DisableAppUpdate is set to true. And, the app.update.auto app.update.enabled and app.update.service.enabled user preferences are set to false.

Hi,

So far I was using Brave on all my devices, but recently I tried Firefox and I really like Firefox sync which encrypts e2e my bookmarks and visited websites between all my devices,

There's one thing on Firefox desktop which doesn't work the same way as in Brave, on MacOS in Brave when I was zooming a page a clickable link on a page is in a different position than a link itself,

I especially can see it when zoomed the actual clickable area of a link is above a text, then menu appears below the point I clicked it

Comparing to Brave when zooming both areas are not synced when zooming

So far I tried with support from here to set apz.allow_zooming to true, it helped with smoother zooming, but that issue described above came up

thanks

hi

using Firefox 76.0.1 Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) iTunes 12.9.5.5

whenever i set the sound to play to my Denon receiver via Airplay, iTunes will randomly open up (usually when a new audio stream is opened). then, it seems to force play whatever was last queued.

if my music is on an external disk, iTunes will repeatedly bug that it cannot find the queued track. (end up having to force quit iTunes but issue returns.)

when i try to replicate the issue in Safari 13.1, iTunes never opens or annoys.
