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.

Can anyone advise me why I can't see the Evernote extension on my tool bar? or anywhere for that matter.

When I look at the add ons/ extensuons list, it is there but it no longer appears and therefore I can't clip to Evernote which is my standard go-to way of keeping things quickly.

I have tried removing and reinstalling several times but it makes no difference.

Help please?

Is there a way to change the speed unit used by Firefox when downloading?

Currently, when I download a file, the progress is shown in kilobytes per second. I would like to have that shown as megabits per second, so I can stop wasting time looking up a speed conversion calculator and finding out how the download is doing as compared to what my ISP says my connection is worth. Or, to compare the download speed to any of the speed tests I have done

The last three times Firefox updated, the Fox icon on the Windows 10 task bar was replaced by a generic one. To restore the Fox icon, the generic one has to be unpinned, but that deactivates it and does not remove it. Then, selecting the generic icon results in a missing item error message and the error box has a selection to remove it. Then a new shortcut needs to be created from the Firefox exe file in the Program Folder and dragged to the task bar. Any idea what is happening and why, and preferably how to prevent it?

Can Firefox be configured to open specified pages on the first time it is opened on a given computer session BUT a blank page on subsequent browser openings? I have 3 tabs (email accounts) I like to have open when I turn on my computer. But any time after that, I want a blank page when Firefox is opened. I know how to open to multiple tabs. However, then Firefox always opens to those tabs when I start a new window.

Ever since I installed the latest Firefox version, I have not been able to use my auto hot keys. I've tried changing the script, etc.. (i'm not tech savvy but had help); and so when using a auto hot key; it'll work one, maybe two times; and then stop. Hoping someone can help me with a solution or guide me in the right direction on how to fix that, as I use a LOT of hot keys for my work.

In any other browser these hot keys work perfectly!!

So frustrating spent 2 days on this practically; thank you for ANY info anyone can provide.

I am trying to stop autoplay on Tubi. I have tried everything from this topic: [[Firefox block autoplay not working, preferences are showing "Block Audio and Video"|https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1278114#answer-1283973]] None of it works, modifying this option breaks Tubi playback completely: media.autoplay.blocking_policy = 2 , option 1 does nothing. I am at my wits end trying to stop auto playback on Tubi with FireFox. I tried another browser and auto playback is disabled easily on Tubi, and works as expected. I hope someone has figured this out for Tubi! Mark

I recently switched from Chrome to Firefox. I have a Logitech - G502 Hero gaming mouse that, when used with Chrome, automatically mapped 2 buttons on it to Page Back and Page Forward. In Firefox, those buttons now invariably start the locked scrolling function.

Is there a way to change the mouse shortcuts so they function like they did in Chrome?

I am trying out Firefox Relay. I have requested to change my email for both Bangood and Aliexpress but the verification emails are not arriving from either one. For one, I used the email address to mail myself from another account, and I did get that. It seems that somewhere someone is blocking the emails from these two Chinese companies. Since I want to use alias's to protect my privacy and manage spam, the Chinese accounts where the first I thought needed extra security... Thanks, Grant

I use multiple profiles. Before I updated if I tried to open a 2nd session of the same profile it would block it and display a message that said something like session already open

After the update it no longer blocks it and allows multiple sessions of the same profile. How do you disable this? I do want it to block multiple sessions of the same profile.

Thank you

Opened Firefox this morning and had two tabs from Grammarly asking why I had uninstalled the add-on. Checked in the pull-down menu and, yes, Grammarly is gone. I haven't uninstalled it. How was it uninstalled?

Additional comment - The Duck Duck Go privacy feature was turned on. I turned that off two or three months ago. Again - how?

Bonus question - How would Grammerly know it was installed?
