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.

How do I change the display of signature blocks for incoming messages?

The default appears to be for light text. I subscribe to several message digests and if a message in a digest ends with a signature block then all subsequent messages appear as light text, which I find difficult to read.

What can Y do to replace all my passwords into only one : - having something from the alphabet and some current number (eg ABC321) - which is only valid for a chosen period as chosen by a user (eg until March 2021) - that informs me by a message like "Be attentfull : your password is soon retired. Renew it soon" - that can be used on an old Pc with Microsoft Vista.... - ...and on a relative new laptop with Windows10 - also on a HuaWay if possible - when I am dying, the password should further exists until the password time is gone.

In this case I never have to make and hide a list where I can forget the hidden place or finding old (wrong) passwords or never forget what the other passwords were.

Hello,

I use windows FF and I dont use any sync etc.

When i bookmark any site (because I have many book marks already) I am trying to organize them better with folders and such.

The problem is when i bookmark a website today, or when I try to move a previous book mark FROM a current location like OTHER BOOKMARKS, or RECENTLY BOOKMARKS, or ADDITIONAL BOOKMARKS.....to a NEW location or folder, it moves the book mark as i want and that is great, however it leaves behind the original bookmark and if i delete the original bookmark it will ALSO delete the clone bookmark i just moved to a new location.

Obviously once i move a bookmark from X to Y, I want to only have 1 instance of the bookmark not 2 in 2 different areas......

When i move a bookmark, I am dragging to a new area,folder etc....or using the bookmark editor to drag it from x to y....

Please help......I am not sure why firefox does this or what maybe i am doing wrong or how to fix. Thanks

So like my title says, I recently started noticed my computer is very slow, making very loud fan noises every 5 - 15 seconds and freezing when the fan becomes loud. I notice in task manager I am running 9-10 firefox processes which take up close to 100% memory, even though I am running 1 tab. I don't know if this a virus, or bug, but it is screwing my computer over. I have 8 GB Ram, and it shows 100% in memory sometimes from firefox, I think this is some virus, but I don't know how to get rid of it.

So, FireFox has a built-in "dark theme". But at the moment, I think it is not finished. The fact is that, with the "dark theme" enabled, the background of the FF service pages (for example: "Blank Page", "Preferences") are white. In this regard, my question is, will this be fixed in future releases?

The second question is about "dark themes" on web sites. Web developers have finally figured out how to present their site in a user-defined color theme. For example - Youtube. If I open a Youtube page not with FireFox, it will define a "device theme" and show the page not in "white" but in "dark" version. It is very comfortable. Unfortunately, it doesn't work in FF. Can FireFox be taught to tell the site the color theme of the device?

I have a new Dell XPS 13 with the current version of Windows 10. I only use Firefox (83.0 64bit) for internet access. CCleaner (free version, 5.74.8198 64 bit) tells me that I have accumulated 5000 some trackers since my last cleaning 3 days ago. Is CCleaner wrong? Is Dell or Windows 10 adding trackers when I am not using my browser? I have not cleaned out the Dell bloatware because I have not had time to see whether some are useful.

I did not have this issue on my old Lenovo laptop. I would get trackers but not 5000 in 3 days.

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

I want my home button to take me to a page that I use most of the time but I want my startup page to be something more neutral like a search engine or about:blank. Or if there was a feature in Customize Firefox that let you add your own button that directed you to a web page that would be cool too!

I have Bing removed from my search engines and when I call up a new window Bing is not there, YAY. But if an app creates a window, even Thunderbird, the window has Bing as it default search engine and is back in the list of search options. This must be a default within Firefox itself or some data file where this comes from. How can I permanently remove Bing.

Addition information, if I lose all my open windows during a crash, last happened when I updated my bios it also reverts to Bing.
