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.

there was a feature which allowed to stop smooth scrolling animation before it reaches the end and it allowed to stop it more precisely where you want it. With the last update-this feature was gone, why?

It used to be possible to prevent Firefox immediately launching when a link was clicked, allowing me to line up lots of links (say, from a newsletter) of articles I wanted to read. A small banner would display at the bottom of the screen that acknowledged the link was lined up in Firefox and you could press that to launch the app if you wanted to.

I cannot find that setting to re-enable it and am finding that I have to keep switching between email and Firefox to open all the links I want to view. If I click Back on my Pixel the page I've just launched is closed.

I can't remember the name of the feature, hopefully someone here knows what I'm talking about and can suggest a workaround or tell me where it is in the settings.

Hi everybody

I use Firefox as my main browser and it has a standard Google search bar. Whenever I type something in the search bar there is a 1-7 second delay before the browser starts responding and doing the search. I don't experience the same delay if I directly click on a website link however.

This problem started recently and I am unable to determine exactly why. I have removed all add-ons, plug-ins, started in safe mode and tried refreshing, deleting and reinstalling but nothing seems to get rid of this search response delay.

Please help?

Hi! As other people have posted before, I too miss the button to go back a page. I've read in other threads, that the back button on my android device should be an alternative, but that doesn't seem to work on my tablet. I click it, but nothing happens. I've also read, that there's an add-on that solves the issue via gestures, but the link in the post is dead. So, if anyone has a working solution, I would be extremly grateful!

At the moment, I open my search history and click on the page to which I wanna go back, which is to cumbersome to be a functional workaround. Especially as it opens a new tab everytime.

Thx in advance, for any tipps you might have!

Having used desktop and android versions for years, I have loved the ability FF had to hold down the left arrow to go to a specific earlier browsed page. Because of my disabilities, using the android back key is inefficient. It would require me to push the android button numerous times in an attempt to return what previously would have taken a couple of long clicks. I can't find a solution for this. To me it is an accessibility feature, not so named, like the previously brilliant ability to save a page as pdf.

After updating Firefox on my Samsung A20, I went through settings and changed only the location bar to the top.

I opened my website, wci-software.com, and discovered that the objects on the display were not in the right places; when the device was rotated landscape/portrait, the css @media statements had no affect (innerWidth, innerHeight); the rotation left a blank space at the bottom of the screen the size of the new bottom location bar, which I had set to be at the top.

I can't find a way to go back to the previous Firefox version, the one that WORKS!

My app development has come to a stop since I anticipate (?) fixes and I do not want to make adjustments to my apps to facilitate a busted-ass Firefox release.

Hello!

This is a minor issue but it's getting a bit annoying to deal with.

Every time i watch youtube videos i need to disable and re-enable the picture in picture mode to get the blue little icon to display so i can use it.

I have tried re-installing three times, troubleshoot and it's driving me crazy. I re-installed windows due to other issues i had and this problem persists.

Does anyone know what could be wrong?
