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 a URL no longer exits, I get a 'redirect' and even it it does, sometimes it "steps on' the correct URL and several attempts are needed to get the correct URL to stick. The "net" gives instructions of: Step 1: Click the "Tools" menu tab in your Firefox browser and select "Options." Step 2: Select "Advanced" from the list of options at the top of the window.

But in Firefox release 83.xxx, "ADVANCED" option does not exist or I can not SEE it. Any idea on how to 'BLOCK REDIRECTS' and just get an error instead?

OR SIMPLE BLOCK URLS one just does not like without using the PARENTAL CONTROLS.

Hi everyone,

I've recently migrated to a new laptop and noticed, after setting up Firefox, that Twitter embeds weren't working on some websites. After some investigation, it seems related to my Enhanced Tracking Settings.

For example, I can get the embeds to appear if I change my Enhanced Tracking Settings to Standard, or if I set them to Custom and disable either of the following:

  • Tracking cookie protection
  • Tracking content protection

Interestingly, leaving the Enhanced Tracking settings as Strict (or Custom equivalent), and disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection for the particular site, doesn't work ...

Is this a bug? Or have I misunderstood how this (exception) mechanism works?

Here's the page I was looking at: https://www.vice.com/en/article/4ad3qp/donald-trump-tiny-desk-electoral-college

Could someone else try experimenting with their settings and see what renders on that article?

Best regards, Ed

Ok, been having these issue like for a really long time, gaving up and switched to chrome for that time being and now even chrome has some bad issue so I am attempting to switch back. I know a lot of us are having the same problem with Kaspersky internet security, they said the next patch would fix it and I am sure the patch arrived. But firefox still has the above issue, and let me clarify the issues; youtube becoming weird, limited suggestion, and sometime shows I am not signed in which I am, and if you keep refreshing it, it would go back and forth in between your account and not signed in.... moreover, I can't type any comment, always with a returned error.... and finally, whenever I am logging in into my hotmail, my machine keeps prompting for security certificate clarification or something.... please help, its been a long while, trying to reinstall both the firefox and chrome, they both still have their respective issues..... thank you

Recently, when I start my Windows 10Pro desktop and I bring up Firefox or click on a URL in an Outlook mail (which starts Firefox), I notice I am logged out of Firefox and have to re-login into my account. I am currently using Firefox version 83.0. This behavior may have started a month or so ago(it is now Nov,29, 2020) before I really started to pay attention to this issue.

Of course during the last several months there have been Windows updates and Firefox updates, so it is difficult to pin this down to a specific set of circumstances.

Once I login into my account, I can close Firefox and re-open or re-start Firefox and I am logged in automatically, as I have always been before. Now when I power off the desktop and re-start the next day I am logged out of my Firefox account.

The only add-ons I have are Ghostery and Google translate.

Any idea what is going on here or what to check for? Thanks.

1: Sometimes when middle-clicking a link to open it in another tab, it will open the new tab with the address of the link I clicked, in the background, but not load it at all.

2: Sometimes when clicking a link (to open in the current tab), it does nothing at all, or selecting an option in a dropdown box won't refresh the page with the new information (for example, zandesk dropdown menus for bug reporting for a developer's game will select the item, but not reload the page with the now relevant boxes to fill out- happens everywhere, noticed it there).

3: Pages will stop loading before they've actually finished loading, like Firefox is cancelling the load because "it's taking too long". I have 400kbps, Firefox, I'm in no rush to STOP loading a page that I'm trying to load...

I recently posted a question on how to fix Yahoo articles pictures not showing-up (it's about half of the pictures in some articles). It appears to be related to pictures that are tied to Instagram, Twitter, etc. I did get a couple of responses to my issue....thank you. The problem is that neither response fixed the problem. Yahoo is a major site that Firefox should fully support. Microsoft Edge works perfectly when using the Yahoo site. I have been a long, long time Firefox user on multiple devices, but I am about ready to switch to Edge for good if this can't be corrected. How do I (or anybody seeing this) let the Firefox developers know this problem needs to be fixed stat?

Thanks, Jim

Every so often when Firefox updates - but not every time it updates - it reverts to the status of tabs from some time before: for whatever date it chooses (in the case of today it chose November 7th) it brings up the tabs that were open on that day. This means it brings up tabs I closed in the weeks after November 7th and it loses all new tabs I have opened since November 7th; if I opened and closed them since November 7th they are not in history - all tabs that were opened since November 7th disappear without a trace, so none of the new tabs that were open that I was working on are available after the update.

Why is this happening? And what can I do about it?

Hi, I used to be able to simply use the "Print" option in Firefox by selecting it from the top right "3 horizontal bars" dropdown, and it would print the pages I was looking at using the printer settings I had for the printer I chose. Now it ignores an important printer setting I have set "Double-sided Printing" for my HP Officejet Pro 6978 printer and prints on only one side of the paper. Why did this change, and how do I get Firefox to obey the settings I have set for this printer? I am using Firefox 83.0 (64-bit) with WIndows 10, and my Windows 10 is up to date with all updates.
