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.

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

Hi! When I adjust a volume (Ej. 30%) elsewhere, when change the focus to Firefox browser, the volume automatically raised to 100% no matter if the page or pages are in blank or with content. And when I change to other application, the volume is back to original state (in this case 30%). Yes, it changes system volume, not the app volume. Searched all over internet and couldn't find solution.

Tried: - Deactivate all sound enhancement. - Deactivate sound lowering in call. - Change sound card (realtek to Nvidia) - Change output (back panel, front panel) - Updated drivers - Unplugged periphericals - Deactivate Control media via keyboard, headset, or virtual interface - Changed media.default_volume in about:config Nothing works

This only happen with Firefox and Chrome browsers. Microsoft edge, games and other multimedia apps has not problem.

I am using AMD Ryzen 5600X Asus TUF b550m 16GB RAM

Firefox 90.0.2 Windows 10, Version 20H2, Build 19042.1110

Hope we could find a solution. This is very annoying when using a headset. Regards

I upgraded to V90.0.2 and tried to install Pocket. The popup gave me an old email address that does not exist, so I changed it to my current email address, logged in, but then pocket said it needed to use my email address, but the old email address was in the box and there was no way to change my old email address.

I came here and logged in using my old email address, but I had updated the account so it had my new email address. I logged out and logged in with my new email address, and my settings were the same, with my new email address and my new alternate email address.

No where was my old email address listed for me to change or delete. I see no way to tell FF that email no longer exists. Confusing, I know.

On Facebook.com I cannot send voice note style messages and get this error message

"You haven't allowed Facebook access to your microphone To make calls or send voice clips, go to your browser settings and allow Facebook access to your microphone."

On another website, when I try to record live video using my built in camera, the camera itself does not activate and only shows a black screen. The microphone DOES work on this site however.

Here is what I have done so far: I've reset the pram and smc on my macbook Granted permissions to these websites in firefox Granted permissions to my mic and camera to firefox in mac security settings Restarted firefox in safe mode, without add ons Cleared the cache, cookies, etc in firefox Reinstalled firefox and tried it all again

Nothing has worked so far and this is beyond frustrating. This problem cropped up at some point after updating from firefix 89 I believe. All help would be super appreciated, I rely on voice/video because typing is very difficult for me. thanks!

I've updated to the latest MacOS Monterey beta and all gesture plugins are broken when used with the trackpad. This is not unique to Firefox, it also happens in Chrome.

If you try to make a two fingers gesture (right click) on the trackpad, it will start scrolling the page instead of registering as a right click and hold for the gesture to start, making gestures impossible to perform.

Does anyone know about a work around for this?

On the screen picture propertys visible only in heading of window (red), cont menu not ScrShoting  ;*( . All this propertys may be viewing on tab "Info about page" => "multimedia" => "info about picture".

In ver 60-70 (if my memory not wrong) if you open picture on new tab and save it on the harddisc this propertys also be in context menu "save PNG 320x240....." and 'SHIFT+' catapult you to the propertys multimedia of "info ab page". Where it lost?

Is it possible to convince the developers to return as it was?

I lost that session of around 2000 tabs back in May 1, and I backed it all up onto a folder. When I followed all the existing steps (closing Firefox and replacing the current stuff with the backups), it only took me to a blank "about:restore" tab and popped up an about:support tab.

When I tried loading it into the scrounger (https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html), it crashed the tab no matter how many times I try. I decompressed it and it loaded the uncompressed JSON without a problem, but it won't let me click "save embedded session (first found only)"

Again....I´m starting to get really frustrated over latest firefox as it is becoming more unfriendly and too much for the tech savy. Having got the bookmarks over to the LHS of the screen, (what a struggle) now one simply cannot organize the sites to type and not by name. There is not a single cue click on this. It would be nice to have a restore feature to how the setup was BEFORE the browser crashed.

This morning I opened Firefox only to find that the GUI had changed completely. I have managed to enable the theme and have customised the toolbar, but my extensions are no longer visibile to the right of the search box, and my dictionaries and language packs are disabled without (so it seems) the possibility of enabling them. My bookmarks seem to be intact, but Firefox is now extremely slow (I've been waiting ages for a new tab to open). What is going on, and how can I restore my extensions (including password manager) and language tools?
