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.

When viewing my e-mails in Outlook, I used to double click on a specific message and expand it to a larger size. Now when I double click on a message I get the Outlook logo and then a blank page. I tried to do this using Microsoft Edge and it took a while, but worked, i.e. the message was expanded. I've tried clearing cookies and caches, closed the app and re-opened, signed in again but still no joy. Can anyone help ?

I started experiencing an issue where my Firefox browser freezes up, tabs won't close or open and the "close" x on the top hoses up also and the only way to close out is via task manager.

If I try opening Firefox via any other method then using "run" Firefox does an update then prompts me for logging into an account which if I do prompts with a database error and then just closes. So the only way to resolve this is to run "firefox -allow-downgrade" which restores my Firefox browser and previous session. Tried un-installing and re-installing; however, same issue persisted.

We've observed that the since at least 73.0 (an much likely earlier than that) the default /norestart behavior of a silent install results in an essentially unusable running browser that is unable to open new tabs/windows, or those new tabs/windows are blank and unable to load new content. It seems as though we should probably switch to /promptrestart

Is there a better method for using the silent install for updates, but leaving the running browser functional until the user chooses to restart?

Notably, the Maintenance Service is not installed, and uninstalled if found. DisableAppUpdate is set to true. And, the app.update.auto app.update.enabled and app.update.service.enabled user preferences are set to false.

Why Firefox occasionally locks-up. Sometimes upwards of 7 apps were found running when only two windows were open. What's up? Too many bells and whistles?

Firefox usually locks up when I visit a medical portal and attempt to send a message to my doctor at https://patientportal.intelichart.com/login/Account/ When I check Windows Task Manager I find upwards of 7 apps, all trying to run at the same time. Why so many? I though Firefox was a simplified , slimmed down browser that could run faster.

So often I get going typing a URL in the address box, only for the sync login request to pop up and steal what I was typing. If the login request came before the home page was displayed then I wouldn't forget and be tempted to type into the address bar. Any chance of this being changed in a future version of Firefox?

Hi all! After updating to FF 76 (or even 75) with new Adressbar I often have an issue with incorrect displaying of autocomplete selection.Tried to show on two screenshot: the first one is right after opening a new tab (or closing the last one), url bar autofocused, I've started typing my request (i.e. 'python' on screenshots). Urlbar automatically completing my input to the first shown suggestion, but doesn't separate my input from the added part - there isn't any selection or even cursor. If I switch to another tab or alt-tab to some other window, then back to this input, it restore normal behavior (screenshot 2): manual input is normal text, suggestion is selected. Can't reproduce the issue specially - it happens randomly but regularly. I'm using Firefox for many years with the same profile, didn't modify any settings recently - 99% sure issue came with one of last major updates with modified url bar. Did anyone have the same issue and what can I try to repair it? Thanks for any possible answers, sorry for my english))

When using Firefox for Windows 10 on a tablet, if you want to select a sentence instead of a word then then context menu always appears at the exact place where you can extend the selection. So you can't. Say you want to select and copy 3 words you long-tap the first word, but when you try to make the selection cover the next 2 words the selector is UNDER the context menu so you can't extend the selection.

Not sure whether this is a bug or not but it's terrible for mobile users. Is there a way to always have 1 cm distance between the selected word and the menu so you can pull the selector to the right or so?

Tnx...

Just recently, probably since the latest Firefox update, if I am listening to an audio stream in Youtube, opening a new tab may interrupt the audio briefly. This is new, and did not occur in previous editions. Opening a blank tab does not interrupt the audio. If a tab is opened by a website (referral or by selecting a favorite) it may not interrupt the audio. Opening an eBay page always interrupts the audio (two short interruptions and then the audio continues.) This support page to enter a detailed question caused the audio to be interrupted. Opening one Gmail ID page from another Gmail ID page will interrupt the audio.

When I click Maximize on Firefox when it's in my main monitor (My middle of 4), the top border of the window goes into the second monitor above my main monitor, cutting off the bottom 5-10 pixels of any program I put there. It doesn't block the task bar, but any normal program like a browser window or music playing app gets cut off at the bottom. I'm not sure how to fix this. All monitors are at their native 1080p settings. Further, when I fullscreen a YouTube video in the main monitor window, the border goes away and no longer cuts off the bottom of the second monitor.

I'd provide a screenshot, but it doesn't translate well in picture without the physical monitor borders being there. Any help would be great, thanks
