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 am not sure if something changed recently, but it's rather frustrating. At work I have to use a smartcard reader to access internal sites. That is working as expected. I get prompted for my smartcard every time I open Firefox though. Is this something new? It's annoying if I just need to open my browser to search for something or go to a website that doesn't require my smartcard.

PC: I use Firefox on Windows 10 and Kubuntu. And there is this problem on both of them Thanks

Hello,

I have a problem on using rocker gesture to change tabs. When I use it, sometime mouse pointer doesn't change on the destination page. For example, the pointer doesn't change on URL, textbox, on text and so on.

I tested some situation below; 1. If I change tabs by clicking it instead of using rocker gesture, it never happened. 2. If I change tabs by mouse wheel on tab area, it happened. 3. I cannot find regularity of it because it doesn't happen 100%. 4. I refreshed my Firefox but still happened. 5. I tested some addons (to use mouse gesture) but still happened. 6. I tried rereased firefox and beta one but still happened.

and some information is here, OS: Mac Catalina 10.15.4 Firefox: 77.0b6 Mouse: Logicool MX Master 2S

I'm sorry to terrible English,but I need your helps.

Thanks in advance,

How to show full url during autofill in urlbar?

My browsing behaviour involves opening a handful of pages many times a day. So, I start to type the address & the autofill feature completes the url, then I press enter. But, there is a slight inconvenience in FF's autofill feature. In Firefox, it doesn't show the full url, only the homepage of that domain and not any additional paths. In Chrome, it shows the full url along with paths. See the images for example.. 10.254.254.4/0/up is my ISP's login page, so I open it many times. But, I have never opened the 10.254.254.4 ; there is nothing there. Yet, typing '10' shows '10.254.254.4' as first result in FF & '10.254.254.4/0/up' in Chrome.

How do I customize Firefox that it shows the full address instead of only the homepage?

Hi,

I use a 3x8 grid of top sites as my home page / new tab page. However, I usually split windows to half of the screen size, and when doing that the grid becomes 3x6 and some sites simply disappear!

Why not simply reshape the grid by adding extra rows? It would seem the most logical design choice, but I cannot find any setting or extension to do it.

Also, I feel like the tiles should be resizable since they look a bit small in high-resolution screens, but that's a different topic.

I don't know if this is the right place to post this, if it is not then please tell me where I should do it.

Hi, I use the Selection Context Search extension and had a lot of custom search providers defined for it. It's some hours that I synced my Firefox on PC with the first-used Firefox Developer on same PC. Both are Portable versions from portableapps.com. I also set the services.sync.prefs.sync.browser.uiCustomization.state = true to sync toolbar customizations.

Now, I found out all my custom search providers are gone, neither exists on Firefox nor Firefox Dev. Unfortunately I wasn't yet able to find an exported setting file for my extension.

Is it possible to somehow recover settings of this specific extension from profile or somewhere?

Thanks

I am using Firefox 76.0 on a Linux Mint 19.3 cinnamon desktop. For some reason I can no longer send a newspaper item by email. Until recently I simply ticked the email symbol in the sidebar, and up popped an email form to which I needed only to put in an address. Now when I tick on the box, there is no result, although there is a line at the bottom of the page, saying 'mail to, and name of article'. I have disabled all add-ons, and the result is the same. It is the same when I have tried on other browsers. However, on another computer in a different room with the same setup, there is no problem. I have torn out my hair for three days and would be very grateful for help.

At every firefox new updates, firefox insists on restoring extensions that I have disabled/uninstalled because they are completely useless to me and I don't want to use. Enforced Useless Extensions: Amazon.com, Amazon.com.au, Bing, Google, Twitter, OpenH264

There is also a common secret: After a new firefox update, I must dig to empty the "features folder" (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\browser\features) which keeps also Useless "Features" like: Enforced Useless Features: doh-rollout@mozilla.org.xpi, formautofill@mozilla.org.xpi, screenshots@mozilla.org.xpi, webcompat@mozilla.org.xpi, webcompat-reporter@mozilla.org.xpi

So, Why does Firefox insist so much on reinstalling unnecessary, useless disabled/uninstalled extensions and "features"?
