I had installed FF version 78 ESR in a newly formatted SSD back in 2020. At that time, two profiles were created automatically under the Profiles folder: xxxxxxx.default, and xxxxxxx.default-esr. The first profile, the one without the "esr" suffix was never used - I don't even know how to switch into it.

The non-esr profile folder had always contained only 6 files totaling about 70 KB. The contents never changed - until a few days ago.

A few days ago I noticed the non-esr profile folder was modified. It now contains 28 files totaling 125 MB. 26 of the 28 files were modified on the same day (May 23rd), at 2 different time points. That folder and contents haven't changed since then.

I continue to use FF using the esr profile without apparent problems, but I would really like to know how/why the non-esr profile got modified suddenly. Any ideas, anybody?

I installed Firefox at work and set my personal email address as secondary to my business address. Well, I liked Firefox so much that I decided to use it at work and at home - and I removed my personal email from my business account. Unfortunately Firefox is still recognizing my personal email as the secondary address for my business account and I am completely incapable of making a new account. My bookmarks and saved passwords are all different between home and work. I NEED two individual accounts, just like how I was using my browsers with Chrome.

Hi!

Is there any way to keep an older version of Firefox without its getting upgraded all the time? Version 99 only has a small header at the top, so there is still space on my screen to see the website I'm trying to see. The newer versions (100 and newer) take up too much space on my screen. Every site has its own headers, and so I am left with about an inch of working space. That's really not enough to see anything.

Is there a way to get the security updates without the new look? Is there a Firefox Light version available, with minimal headers and all? I prefer Firefox, and would love to keep it. Having to reinstall it (to get the older version back) several times a week is not good.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks very much!

When clicking on a redirect (Get recipe) to a new tab in the Bon Appetite site, Firefox causes a BSOD. No other browser does this. ver 113.2 64 Bit. (Reinstalled) No extensions in effect. Computer: I9 with 32 gigs DDR4 and terabytes of open space. Graphics: Radeon RX 580 - 8G All drivers up to date. VRam tested with OCCT

The big thing here is, NO other browser has this issue. I have whittled down system error logs to only DCom and LSA errors.

Any real help would be appreciated!

I'm trying to use multi-account containers to use twitter and other sites from accounts unique to the container.

For twitter, if I select a container, a new tab opens with the twitter login page in that container. If I try to login, another tab opens in that container, with the login page. So, I can never log in.

Is there a solution?

Screen goes black when some videos play - audio continues, but screen is black. I am sire this is a Firefox problem - I have successfully watched videos using BING browser - same videos go black on Firefox. I have refreshed Firefox, cleared cache, restarted Firefox - cleaned cookies. Turned accelerator off then back on - because nothing changed. Does not do this with all videos, just some - some You Tube videos play, others do not. I have Windows 10 and McAfee Live Safe - all programs are current and up to dated.

Last week, mid-day one day, videos on YouTube suddenly all had a warm cast --yellowish for color, cream/beige for B&W. I have researched the issue as I can. It is not my Windows night light; my drivers and PC are apparently all updated; everything is working fine. I checked to see if the same happened with Vimeo videos and it did. I'm running W10.

   Interestingly, the pop-up thumbnails one gets when hovering over the timeline as not affected; they look fine.
   One post by someone else was answered that it was a GPU driver issue; another said it's only with HD videos.
   I'm a B&W photographer and would really like to get back to normal again. 
   Any ideas?

I have a 2020 Mac Mini with Ventura 13.2.1 on it. I have four virtual desktops which are part of the OS. I place various apps on the others like stocks and weather etc. to diminish clutter on screen. Firefox shows up on all 4 of them. I want it on only one desktop. Safari works on only one and doesn't show in the other 3 desktops. I have searched the net but haven't found anything that speaks to this in particular. Thanks for any help with this and I hope it's just a simple setting. Regards, Jim Stephens

This happens only on Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition on one of my PCs and not the other. Firefox is version 113.0.2 (64-bit) and DE is 114.0b9 (64-bit)

Anyone experienced this before?

It's just not playing well with Win11.

I have been trying all afternoon and no matter how fast I am, I am getting this message.

Document Expired

This document is no longer available.

The requested document is not available in Firefox’s cache.

   As a security precaution, Firefox does not automatically re-request sensitive documents.
   Click Try Again to re-request the document from the website.

When I click Try Again, I get logged out of the website I am on. What am I doing wrong? Is there a way to extend the time so I am able to reasonably enter the data into the form and not have it time out. I was able to the enter this information in the past without a problem.

The website is https://www.mysynchrony.com/ and I select one of my accounts and I am trying to add a bank account and I am unable to do so. Please help.
