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.

Greetings,

Once Firefox updated to 89, all themes stopped working. Every add-on I try to use shows that it's installed, but once I click to a new tab it's gone. Even the default theme that came with Firefox won't work. I could use some ideas on how I can get this working again; it'd be nice to spice things up a bit.

Thanks.

Possible to change display name for Firefox? [Mac]

I am on MacOS Mojave (10.14.6). I have a few different installations of Firefox for different purposes and I'd like them each to display the custom name I've given them by renaming their filename (e.g. changing Firefox.app to something like YouTubeViewer.app). This causes the installation of Firefox to show in my app switcher and elsewhere in the OS as "YouTubeViewer", however when I run YouTubeViewer.app, Firefox still displays "Firefox" in the upper left-hand corner as the application name.

I tried editing the .plist file for each installation to change the value for key CFBundleName from "Firefox" to "YouTubeViewer", but that causes that installation of Firefox to no longer run. I believe this is due to the code-signing and pre-run validation done by the OS.

So, is there any way to get the custom name to display or is just not possible?

Dear all,

I find that the folders other than "Inbox" are not automatically synchronized therefore the new messages are not notified. In the "Folder Properties", I already checked "When getting new messages for this account, always check this folder", but the new messages are only checked manually.

I guess that this is related to the PUSH notification of my IMAP account. I wonder whether there are ways to make this automatic. I use "K-9 Mail" on my Android device which checks these folders automatically if properly configured. I don't think that this is a deficient of PUSH notification.

Best, Frank

I've updated to the latest MacOS Monterey beta and all gesture plugins are broken when used with the trackpad. This is not unique to Firefox, it also happens in Chrome.

If you try to make a two fingers gesture (right click) on the trackpad, it will start scrolling the page instead of registering as a right click and hold for the gesture to start, making gestures impossible to perform.

Does anyone know about a work around for this?

Again....I´m starting to get really frustrated over latest firefox as it is becoming more unfriendly and too much for the tech savy. Having got the bookmarks over to the LHS of the screen, (what a struggle) now one simply cannot organize the sites to type and not by name. There is not a single cue click on this. It would be nice to have a restore feature to how the setup was BEFORE the browser crashed.

This morning I opened Firefox only to find that the GUI had changed completely. I have managed to enable the theme and have customised the toolbar, but my extensions are no longer visibile to the right of the search box, and my dictionaries and language packs are disabled without (so it seems) the possibility of enabling them. My bookmarks seem to be intact, but Firefox is now extremely slow (I've been waiting ages for a new tab to open). What is going on, and how can I restore my extensions (including password manager) and language tools?

When I am on a web page for which I wish to use the microphone and camera, the pop up/down up by the URL does indeed show up for authorizing the use of the camera and microphone. However the tick box "Remember this decision" is no longer present.

Once I have hit Allow, the only option that I have when I click on the camera icon to the left of the URL is to click the X next to Allowed Temporarily.

Under Settings/Permissions the Camera does not show the site for which I have given permissions. Interestingly under Microphone the site is in the list under permission but I am still asked when I go to the page.

I have both a built in camera and microphone in this HP but I almost always use my Logitech 9000 as the picture and microphone are much better.

This used to work fine until recently. How do I get the "Remember this decision" option back?

When version 89.2 rolled out, I was highly displeased by the fact that the default theme now no longer properly reflected the Windows theme settings (extremely noticeable on my end, since I use the Windows Classic theme with customized "3D object" colors); this defect had already affected the options dropdown but had now spread to the address/navigation bar, bookmarks toolbar, and scrollbar. This was extremely annoying, especially since none of the add-on themes can properly duplicate that aesthetic function. One of the things I liked about Firefox was that unlike Chrome, Opera, and Edge... it actually still respected the Windows theme settings (which programs like browsers should do by default). And now, that prized trait had been inexplicably and insensibly discarded.

I was further displeased by the removal of the dividing lines between tabs. This made Firefox substantially harder for me to use, almost headache-inducingly so. Whoever you have testing these changes before rollout - if anyone - should be replaced, because this was a massive accessibility downgrade. Unacceptably so.

These changes were so frustrating and ugly, and made the browser so much more difficult for me to use, that I reverted to version 88 and continue to remain on that version.

Does version 90 resolve these issues? If it does, I'll update. But if not.... then in my opinion it should be axed and you should cease pushing it in favor of working on a new version that does fix these poor decisions. And I'll be sticking to version 88 until that happens.

Hello, my hero! I need your help. Look at the screenshot and you will understand faster. Is it possible to return the icons to Firefox dropdown menus after Firefox removed this functionality in June updates? For example, if you open "Application menu" you cannot work fast because you have to read all those menus. It makes my work too slow! I have got used to visual pictograms, but now they are gone, not-thanks to you Firefox devs!!! New tab, New window, New private window, Bookmars, History, Downloads, Passwords, all of these are just words, just text! It used to be so convenient just to quickly click the icon, and now i have to read all the wordsto hopefully find the required function. Can you make icons for those menus, please? Or at least, is there any extension for this? p.s. Come on Firefox, you have only made the design worse because it slows down people's ability to find the required things. How can this text be better than icons??? Do I have to count them or should I have a reaction of an insect? p.s.s. Firefox 90.0.2.
