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.

YOUTUBE: No Home Page & No Initial Comments Section via FireFox: In YouTube via FireFox the YouTube Home Page and Comment Entry on videos is missing. Why is this? Ever since the dawn of FireFox this has always been missing. Please go use Chrome, Chromium, and Brave. You will see when you select a certain YouTube Channel, you will get a Home Page. You do not get this in FireFox. The second issue that has always been is the fact that you cannot comment on videos because the Comment Entry is missing via FireFox.

FireFox needs to correct this problematic issue. I am using Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia. I have also used Windows 10 and the same problem exist there. I want the FireFox Team to use Linux Mint to see what you get from the FireFox Browser in the Software Manager. Question; is this the same Browser that is currently available via the website? If not, then we have a huge problem with the Linux Team and Linux period that needs to be resolved. Both the FireFox Team & the Linux Team needs to work together to get this fixed.

I would provide Screenshots but I want people to actually go and see for themselves. Go get Linux Mint and install FireFox via the Software Manager. Go to YouTube to see what I am talking about.

Sincerely, KLCJR77 Productions

The Intel TRUEKEY add-on/extension will no longer work in Firefox 79.0. It still works in a previous version but Mozille has made rolling back extremely difficult.

Suspiciously, now TRUEKEY ONLY works in the Edge browser, which I do not want to use.

Is Mozilla aware of this problem and the fact that until it is resolved people are being forced to use the Edge browser if they want to be able to use their password manager?

The symptoms are: the add-on loads successfully, you see the Truekey icon in the menu bar, but when you click on it, NOTHING. The app does not launch, there is no activity whatsoever.

Help would be appreciated. Barb

I recently did a clean install of Window's on my computer. I have a Firefox account and am signed into sync, but I don't know how to get my add-ons and settings back. When I go to "Manage Your Extensions" I see all of them there, but I don't know how to make it so that their icons are viewable in my Toolbar where I can click and use them. What few add-ons I am able to get to show up in the Toolbar I got by either going directly to the add-ons website and installing from there, or by uninstalling them via the add-ons Manager page and then reinstalling. Which in my opinion defeats the whole point of having a Firefox account and sync activated.

Of critical importance is my need to get back the information that I had stored in Notes by Firefox. I was finally able to get the add-on to show up in the Toolbar buy following the above mentioned steps, however I am unable to sign in to Sync. Below I have listed each of the step I take along with attaching screenshots. 1) Click on Sign in to Sync - This opens a new Firefox browser window that prompts me to enter my email to continue to Notes. 2) I enter my email and click the blue Continue button. 3) I enter my password and click the blue Sign in button. 4) I enter my Two Factor Authentication. 5) The browser window that opened when I clicked Sign in to Sync closes and I'm back where I was when I started the Sync process, but now instead of showing Sign in to Sync Notes shows Reconnect to Sync with a warning triangle on the left side. 6) I Click to Reconnect to Sync and got through steps 2 - 5 but Notes still shows the warning triangle with the Reconnect to Sync message.

At no point in this process do I get any error message or invalid credentials prompt.

Please help!

Outlook.com (webmail version, formerly Windows Live Hotmail, formerly MSN Hotmail) can be used for writing in multiple languages with a Firefox dictionary add-on for spell-check in multiple language. There seems to be a Microsoft issue and/or a Firefox issue. This issue has just recently appeared (reappeared, actually -- every so often this happens). In short, the "change language" function within the body of the e-mail text no longer works on a PC or on a Mac. The language add-ons (dictionaries) no longer work. Gmail and Yahoo Mail do not have this problem. The language dictionaries do work, though, in the subject headline and in the feedback area to Microsoft. You used to be able to right-click and set/change the language you were writing in. This is a recent issue (about a month). Microsoft says to get in contact with Firefox, although it sounds like Microsoft is prohibiting Firefox to allow its dictionary add-ons to function in Outlook.com (webmail).

I have tried every suggestion for blocking videos from autoplaying. I have tried Firefox's suggestions, and everything I found on the web, and nothing works. Autoplay happens every time on Fox. Why can't Mozilla get me a straight answer. I cannot be the only person in the world using Firefox, latest version, who has this problem. And, by the way, the way it seems to work is if you leave the video screen visible it does not Autoplay, but as soon as you scroll down to read the article, and thus the video image scrolls up and off the screen, then it starts to play. This isn't just some fluke and I suspect there is some code in the page HTML that does this. So, how the hell do I get it to stop?

Ctrl-D and then a pulldown menu worked. Then select a folder. (SOme years ago, in FF as well as in Safari, the menu would automatically place your bookmark in the most recent folder if you did not specify otherwise. Now you have to sepcify Every. Damm. Time.) The past week, it is not an anomaly or occasional: Every. Damm. Time. I now also have to press Ctrl-D twice (or three times). Or click the bookmark star twice - or three times. Only and ONLY THEN will it give me the pulldown menu for which bookmarks folder to select. Pulldown menus in general - e.g. having to scroll through a menu of states intead of just TYPING "OR" or "WA" - seem to have been programmed by nasties who wish to make life more difficult in small, numerous, and frequent increments. But the bookmarking is over the line. It needs to be ONE action to select bookmarks. Then ONE action to select the destination folder.

Tiktok and YouTube bypass my Firefox autoplay settings. By default, I set Firefox to disable autoplay of audio and video. I seldom use the website, but when I do, it blasts music at me the moment I visit the site. As a headphone user, that's really annoying!

To a lesser degree, YouTube does as well. If I'm not subscribed to a channel, it will autoplay the channel's featured video on the Home tab. Example: https://www.youtube.com/user/carolinaeyckvideos

Hi! I'm posting this in hopes of getting help with a UI responsiveness problem that seems specific to Linux when GPU usage is very high. I use distributed computing through BOINC when weather is cold enough to allow it, but I've noticed that when my GPU is working on a task, Firefox is very unresponsive in most regards; scrolling lags behind my actual inputs, it takes longer to render new pages, and videos have issues like video/audio desync and audio stuttering.

That would seem normal to me considering my system resources are in heavy use, except for two things: these issues do not occur in Blink-based browsers (I've temporarily switched to Brave because of this issue), and more relevantly, they only occur in Firefox in Linux, not Windows Firefox.

I have already checked if this is because of settings or extensions by creating a new blank profile (which I am using right now), and that's not it - turning off hardware acceleration doesn't help either.

I see the Troubleshooting Information dump has a lot of system and hardware data in it, but I'd be happy to provide more details if needed. Thanks!
