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.

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

While I appreciate the fact someone took to time to translate the dev tools to another language, this feature is highly inconvenient, it make it all weird and different names I am not used to and it make it hard to explain to someone else in other language or watch toturials where they use the English version. This go beyond bad when the language is from right to left, then the all interface looks even weirder.

And as for now I am forced to go back to chrome because this make firefox dev tools impossible to use for me

I'm sure that somewhere in this list is the answer I'm looking for but can not find it. I've done this before but, I'll be flipped if I can find a way to get it to work gain. I had a system crash that trashed Ubuntu to the point that I had to reinstall it. I had, before the crash, Thunderbird and WindoZe 10 using the same accounts and All e-mails (20+ years worth) available from either on a dual boot computer, and new downloads to. All e-mail accounts shared.

Both were current installs, Ubuntu 20.04 LTS and what ever WindoZe was running 4 weeks ago. As are the versions of Thunderbird on both.

I need to use identical Thunderbird profiles under both OS's, especially since the last update to WindoZe bricked my WindoZe boot. (that is a separate headache. Data is intact, just won't boot. I have several legacy apps under WindoZe that I am stuck with and no tax software is available for the various Unix flavors.)

How can I make Thunderbird share the emails and profiles between both OS's again? Logging manually to each account is a royal pain, and separating the e-mails in Thunderbird as of a separate date is not desirable for legal reasons. If possible I would like to move the e-mails to a different drive at the same time, I made the mistake of buying SSD drives. I'm plan on going backwards to proven technology until the bugs are worked out of SSD's.

Moving to a separate drive right now is optional, I am badly in need of accessing the e-mails from either OS right now.

How restore closed window-with-tabs into current multi-window session?

A few days ago, I accidentally closed 1 window (clicked the "X" in the upper-right corner) that had 248 tabs in it, without realizing it. Since then, I've 'properly' closed Firefox (Menu icon; Exit) and reopened it again many times. I have 3 other windows open in my current session, each with many-hundreds of tabs in them (one has 1335 tabs!).

Fortunately, I have an archived copy of my entire Profiles folder from a month ago. Saving aside my current sessionstore.jsonlz4 file, and substituting the month-old one into its place, then restarting Firefox, shows me that I still have that old 'lost' window there (with all 248 tabs intact), along with the other (old) 3 windows. But I've made a lot of changes to the tabs in those other 3 windows since I 'lost' the 4th one; so I can't just use that backup of all 4 windows, going forward now. I need to recover that 4th window, into my current session.

Is there some way to make a copy of one entire window (with all its contained tabs with their titles and URLs) from one session, close Firefox, then open a new Firefox session and 'paste' those contents into a new (empty) window?

I downloaded the "Copy All Tab Urls" Add-on (by Michele Pezza), which allows me to copy that one window's 248 'lost' tabs (titles and URLs) to my clipboard. Which is fine for pasting that list into a Word document. But I can't figure out how to 'paste' that list into a new Firefox window, as properly-configured individual tabs. Or, maybe there's some other solution?

I can't be the only one who's accidentally closed a big fat window inside a multi-window session, and gone too far from the event to simply restore the whole session from a backup. Any help would be hugely appreciated. Thanks in advance!

I have Firefox set to restore sessions upon restart. Up until a week ago this worked fine. I also use pinned tabs extensively with no problem until recently. Now when I restart Firefox one of 2 things happen. Either the pinned tabs are gone while all non-pinned tabs remain, or everything launches correctly but the pinned tabs disappear one by one (in a perfect sequence) over the course of a few seconds right after startup. I am absolutely confounded by this bizarre behavior. My computer is a Win 10 Dell desktop.
