If I add a NEW bookmark using Bookmark this Page feature OR by dragging and dropping the URL to the Bookmarks menu or toolbar, it will have the wrong FAVORITE icon. (It chooses a consistent one from some older bookmarks I have... let's call it "random" as there's nothing special about that older bookmark, but it's mostly consistent (more below on that.).
If I drag from the URL line to the DESKTOP (or from a Bookmarks toolbar folder of links) it will have a different icon. The icon is again generally consistent but again random in that it has no relation to the item being linked. I can't seem to figure out what condition causes one or the other. Note that every once in a while it will also give me this alternate icon for a URL dragged to the menu/toolbar. Once it's done that, that will forever be the icon for that link - even if I delete the link and start over. Sometimes it gives me the Firefox default icon (when it should give me a favorite from the site) but that's in a few cases. Once again, I can't seem to figure out what condition causes one or the other (or the other).
If I look at the Library pull down tool/menu of "Recent Highlights" it will be correct. However, if I look at the Library -> Bookmarks under Recently Bookmarked it will generally be wrong. Sometimes it will be correct in both but continue to give me the wrong icon (Firefox default) when I drag it from the URL line or Bookmarks menu to the desktop.
If the very FIRST thing I do is to Bookmark this Page upon arriving, it all works normally. But if I drag the URL first before doing that, I get the errant behaviors above. Some can eventually correct by deleting and using the Bookmark this Page feature but generally they retain some errant behavior. There is no consistent workaround that works (at all) or consistently.
Note that the correct favorite icon appears in the TAB header, so it's not an issue with fetching the correct icon or there being one supplied by the web developer.
This has been going on for a while... a month or more. It's probably related to an update but I can't tell you which specifically as I usually do them as a matter of course when they come out. I don't know if it was there in 67.* but it's been there in 68 and it's in 69. I've been through many reboots, full shutdowns, even an unrelated hardware swap of the disk drive to a different (but identical) machine, etc. It's not a transitional problem.
Also note that the other browsers on my computer seem to be working normally including MSIE and Chrome.

When using the virtual keyboard, IME (no matter third party's or Windows 10's) dosen't work at all. In this case, ONLY English input works. other languages (such as Chinese IME and Japanese IME) inputs are not working.
This issue only happens on the virtual keyboard, not on physical keyboards.
I'm recently using a Windows 10 tablet equipped with a touch screen, and sometimes I remove my detachable keyboard and use the touch screen only, and this issue stops me from using Firefox without my detachable keyboard.

I have had problems all week with firefox, it will work, then next time, say 10 minutes later I get dialogue box telling me I have opened older version and need to create a new profile, In the last 4 days I have done this 48 times, getting pissed off, got company IT to look into but no joy there, but by chance have just spotted a file, in moz maint service/logd, where it appears there was a mait service install just before I could not open, who has set this system up to update itself, but not update the shortcut file, so twice today twice yesterday and 8 times on tuesday to stop me using the service.

Firefox 69.0.1 (64-bit) on Windows 10.
Web applications (such as Hangouts) that have an option to select a different sound output do not work. All that is available is "System Default Speaker Device". This means I cannot use my headset for instance, and also means that other web pages cannot route sound however I want it.
Is this a Firefox bug or are there some hidden options to use sound devices?

This is *not* about the addons-meggadon from May. Like everyone else, I experienced that, I "enabled studies" at the time, and everything was fixed.
When starting Firefox yesterday (September 18 I believe), it opened with all my bookmarks gone, all my browsing history vanished, and my most important addons disabled (adblock plus, dark reader, foxy proxy). Everything was working fine before. I did not do any manual updates, and I don't think FF did an automatic update recently (but I might not have noticed). I currently have FF 69.0.1 (64-bit)
By "browsing history" I mean when I start typing into the addressbar, it used to suggest my most commonly visited sites, now it does not.
I managed to reload the bookmarks from a backup using the normal bookmarks restore feature. The browsing history is not a big deal (but does seem to indicate that some serious reset took place).
The addons are key to me, I really want to fix this. They are still listed in the add-ons manager, but are marked as "disabled". There is no enable button.
At first I thought it was a reprise of the old problem from May 2019. So I double-checked: studies are enabled, and I can see completed studies that seem to indicate the fix was done.
Based on an old post here from rcr1959 I tried going to about:config and setting extensions.signer.hotfixed to false. This didn't resolve the problem, so I put it back to true (i.e., how I found it).
There was some suggestions that a master password might cause problems, or profiles. I don't use a master password, and have never set up a profile. Under about:profiles, I see "Profile: default" and no others. There is an option to "Restart with Add-ons disabled" and another to "Restart normally". I tried the second one; it restarted fine but the add-ons are still disabled.
