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, One default Brother printer, one other Brother printer connected just once and a HP printer. Word under Win10 shows all three printers, but Firefox only shows the HP printer. This means I can no longer directly print any emails coming in from Hotmail (Outlook), but have to copy/paste each email into Word for printing as I do not want to print on the colour HP.

Solution found: "Refresh" after "Menu" and "Trouble Shooting" in Mozilla does the trick, but works only once unfortunately. Help!

My Firefox wouldn't load, so I looked and apparently you have to uninstall/reinstall. I did that, but now my old bookmarks/profile cannot be loaded.

I get a message stating "Using an older version of Firefox can corrupt bookmarks and browsing history already saved to an existing Firefox profile. To protect your information, create a new profile for this installation of Firefox."

Can anyone help? I have years and years of bookmarks I need access to!

Thank you.

Merhaba. Bilgisayarıma format attım. Daha sonra Mozilla kurulumunu yaptım ve Mozilla hesabıma giriş yaptım. Daha sonra senkronizasyon işlemini yaptı. Ama eski verileri getirmek yerine yeni, sıfır Mozilladaki verileri eski verilerin üzerine yazdı. Senelerdir bu hesabı kullanıyorum ve maalesef yedekleri yok.

Hi

I have installed latest FF version (80) and have deinstalled and reinstalled all Flash Player version - also the plugin version for FF. Now after several tries some websites (VMware managing sites for vsphere) are working and if I choose the Flash version of them I get the picture/button for enabling flash and the website is opening correct.

But if I go to another managing website for VMware horizon view administration (admin site for managing VMware VDIs) then no enabling button appears and directly I get the information that I need to install flash version 11.1 or higher.

This problem is only on Firefox. In IE and Chrome I can acccess the site without problems but in Firefox it doesn't work anymore since version update 80. The problem is that I can't open the side to get this enabling flash.

Is there a way to open it if it doesn't appear automatically?

Regards,

Got email from Mozilla about what I thought was an update. I ended up, after trying to follow the instructions and now have 2 Firefox apps on my screen. I can't tell which is my original because both screens look totally identical other than locations on the top bar that shows icons for my added apps - they are not identical in order. I don't want to use whatever this new version is because it is too confusing for me to follow so how do I get rid of it when I don't know which is my original????? Please help!!!

Acrobat Reader DC has long been installed and routinely updated, per Control Panel>Programs and Features, on my Windows 10 64 bit Home edition PC. Why does Firefox always think I do not have it installed? Is it looking for an add-on, instead of an installed program? Are there Firefox or Windows settings that affect this one way or the other? This is a nuisance of the very minor variety, but I find myself curious why it persists and what causes it.
