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.

Isn't there a setting somewhere for toggling whether Firefox's window caption incorporates the current page's title? Labels on my shell taskbar seem to be more meaningless with it enabled. What if I intend to activate the Firefox window and immediately switch to a tab other than the one currently active? From this aspect you can see how Firefox really isn't streamlined for subconcious interoperation with other applications.

Please help. Thanks!

When I reopen a closed tab, I would expect it to open on the last page I visited with that tab. For some reason it has been opening the first page I visited with that tab. For example if I visited the following websites "new tab page -> google -> mozilla support" and then closed and reopened this tab, the page would be google. This has only started happening in the last week or two, so I'm wondering if this is intentional or if there's something in about:config that I can change.

Hello, I would like to find out how to setup text replacements or, activate,in FireFox 75.0 (64-bit) running on macOs High Sierra. so that it is sourcing/replicate the input in macOS High Sierra (v 10.13.6) in Preferences - Keyboard - Text (see attached image)

This would help a lot with my productivity at work. I am not sure if there is a way to enable my text replacement shortcuts setup on my Mac to work in Firefox, or if there is some sort of Add-On that would achieve this.


Any help here would be greatly appreciated!

Stop switching to another tab when video starts

I have a tab open that plays videos on a website for which I get credit for "watching" them, however I have other tabs open that I switch to while the videos play to get stuff done. I still get credit as the tab stays open. I can hear them playing as I'm active on another tab. However firefox keeps forcing me to go back to the tab playing videos whenever a new video loads & starts playing on that tab. It automatically takes me off the current tab and forces me to view that video tab so I have to see the new video strarting. I have to click back on the other tab I was on, but as soon as the next video starts playing it again forces me onto that video tab and takes me off the tab I want to be on. I want the video tab to play while I'm on other tabs without forcing me back to that video tab every time the next video loads. I don't want to be forced back to that video tab, I want to stay on the current tab I'm on no matter if a new video starts on the other tab. How do I stop Mozilla from forcing me off my current tab and back to the tab playing videos every time a new video starts??

I have two displays one on the left and one on the right. The display on the left is designated as the "main display" in Windows > Display Settings. When Firefox sends me a notification it pops up in the lower left corner on my left display. That is the worst location possible for the way I use my display screen real estate. Are there any options to change the location of the pop up, preferably to the screen on the right in the upper left corner?

Hello, I am familiar with the auto-play settings in about:preferences. They seem to work as intended for actual websites. I have it set to block auto-play for audio/video by default, but allow it for YouTube. My problem occurs when I try to allow auto-play for a local file (file:///C:/...). Near the address bar I can click and change settings to allow auto-play, but once the menu closes it goes right back to the default setting. The only way my local file will auto-play is if the default for all websites is set to allow it, which is not what I want to do.

Is the problem something on my end that I can change? Is an extension of mine possibly blocking this? Would a reinstall help?

Edit: I would like to also mention that auto-play settings work fine when I access my local file through localhost (using something called WAMP). It just seems that anything beginning with "File:///" in the address bar will not allow you to change auto-play permissions. I do not think it is best practice to be hosting a web server just for a static homepage...

Edit2: Appears to be fixed in the latest update! Awesome!

"God never said that the journey would be easy, but He did say that the arrival would be worthwhile."

I am not a god, but a mere human. God may have the patience to change Firefox theme of his laptop, sync his other computer, and change both of his computer's theme to the "default" one. He might then change both of his computer's and laptop's themes, and turn on his raspberry pi, and all the three computers now has the "default" theme.

These things were like this for ages. I think I am wrong thinking sync shouldn't work this way. Say in google, when you type something, it's saved to your search history, you remove it from one device, then it's gone from all the devices. But maybe Firefox devs think sync is merely syncing all the devices together.

There should be a timestamp in sync. When you change one theme in the future, you should change it for all the devices. You shouldn't change your laptop's theme to the desktop ones again because simply it should override the theme on the Firefox server.

"Tis strange - but true; for truth is always strange; Stranger than fiction"

Yes, yes, reality is strange, changing a thing in Firefox in future syncs all the works from the past. It's messes up everything, the data isn't updated to the server, rather I don't know what kind of convoluted thing it does to perplex mere humans.

What do you think? Should sync mess up with all the devices?

Hi Folks,

When I exit Firefox (version 75.0 64bit, Windows 7 Professional 64bit) running in VMWare Horizon Client (Version=4.8.1 build-8980186). I lose my "Menu Bar" and "Bookmarks Toolbar" even though I have selected them in customize options to be on. Every time I exit Firefox they are lost and and I need to right click and tick them again to be on each time I start Firefox. This is only happening in the VMWare Horizon Client (outside of the Horizon Client on my local laptop no issues) It seems as if the setting to have them on, (my preference), is not be saved in some file somewhere in the VMWare client image. - What file should this setting be saved in?

  I am wondering if I don't have permissions on the file or something
  I don't have Administrator rights on the VMWare image.

As I say it is working ok outside the VMWare image but not inside the VMWare image where I am doing most of my work and this is very annoying. - I have tried Firefox Refresh option and that has not worked - I have created a new profile and not copied over anything from my old profile and that

  has not work either

I would really appreciate some help on this please as it is so disruptive to my work.

Thanks MF

I was wondering if there is any way to make Firefox work as before. I don't want my windows being moved around by this option. What I really care about is restoring the tabs from previous session.

Actually when I open Firefox in a (GNU/Linux) workspace I want it to show up exactly at the workspace I'm opening it. However this options moves Firefox to the workspace it was previously active on which is bugging me really bad.

So is there any way around it?
