Unchecked "Use the selected profile without asking at startup" seems to be ignored

I have 3-4 different profiles running, one for work, one for using a proxy, one for developing (which turns off certain security features as I ONLY run my own code on it). I could have sworn that back in the old days when I unchecked the "Use the selected ... without asking ..." button that every time I started firefox by opening a link or clicking the icon for firefox that it would pop up the "Choose User Profile" dialog. Now it just seems to have decided to push it to some arbitrary profile, which for now seems to be my work one. I don't think it's stable and seems to be the first profile that I run when I start starting up firefox profiles. This is a problem if it randomly decides to start in my insecure for dev only profile.

What I did:

  • Created a few profiles
  • Started up multiple profiles at once w/ firefox -P
  • Unchecked the "Use the selected ...." checkbox

What I expected:

  • Bring up profile chooser dialog every time firefox starts

What's actually happening:

  • It's picking a profile to start (not clear how it's choosing) and just starting with no dialog.

I'm running 68.8.0 esr 64-bit. Is this the new expected behavior, am I doing something wrong, or do I need to file a bug?

I don't like the megabar, and I have looked around to see if there are any fixes for the most recent Firefox 77 update that forces that user to have it (like at least one other update, it just assumes that people like it). I have tried using the userChrome.css file, but that didn't work. I have also tried going into about:config, which also didn't work. Is there any possible way to say 'I never want to see this megabar again in my life'? Or a way to tell the devs that it should NOT be a default option on new updates? Or a way to turn it off that will always be around, unlike the about:config deal? Any help would be great. I attached an image of the megabar.

I am using Hotdocs portal, which is an in-house document assembly tool. Firefox is the recommended browser, but it is recently handling 2016 docx files incorrectly. When we choose a file on the portal site (internal site), we go through the interview and are presented with a link to "download" the assembled file. When you click that link, a pop-up appears showing the file name as abc.docx but then says it is a Word 97 - 2003 document, even though it is not. The original template is not. If I choose to open the file, it ends up opening and showing as abc.docx.doc If I save the file, instead of opening it, it saves as abc.docx.

If we run this same process in IE/Edge, the file opens as abc.docx as it should. I have uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled. Is there anything that could be causing this? I've tried a bunch of troubleshooting steps and nothing seems to change this outcome.

Thank you.

Hi guys. I tested this recently on notebook with Windows 10. I installed Firefox, sign in to my account, synced everything. Let's say, I need to delete all the data and this account from this particular device. I couldn't find such an option. When I deleted my account from Firefox, all the data left on the notebook! Even when I uninstall the browser, and then install it again - browser restored all the data!!!

Is it possible to delete my sync account and all the data related to it: history, bookmarks, sessions, extensions, add-ons, everything?

Let's say, I'm signed in on a friend's laptop and need to delete everything later.

Hey there,

i recently upgraded from a mid-2010 macbook pro to a mid-2017 one, migrating all my data from a time machine backup. everything seemed to work seamlessly, but then i figured out that firefox doesn't show some pages, for example the video-streaming platform "chili", instead only blank pages show up. i already tried safe, which doesn't help. when i try to delete all my history and empty the cashe etc. firefox crashes continuously.

i figured out two things so far: first i changed my macbook user account and tried the same website in firefox on my guest account. here it worked. then i went back to my normal admin account, i deleted my firefox profiles folder and reinstalled firefox. now it also worked here. unfortunately this would make me lose all my settings and data, which i don't want, so i put a backup of my old profiles folder back in place to keep all my stuff, but the blank pages error remains.

if anyone could help me, i'd be super grateful!

thanks so much :) Miro

I did not make any changes to options. When I started today, I went to find a website from history and all my history from the day before was gone. AND have of the list space was full of bookmarks. How could bookmarks be in history? Why is my history gone?

Is there some keyboard command that was done by accident to cause this? This has never happened before.

My dad uses Chrome not Firefox. So anything he does should not affect my settings.

Is there a way to fix this? or to keep it from happening in the future?

first i was thinking that this is only a Firefox addon issue (CookieMaster), but it might actually happen with other browsers too... although maybe it's still related to cookies only?

when i do some posting on some random forums, it always totally randomly cuts off half of the posts and even adds totally random phrases from the same post into totally random places, so the post gets either cut off or really hard to even understand because all of the text scrambling in it...

and that's not even all - now i edited some old wordpress post and then noticed that it has done the same exact word scrambling in it... so it's really hard to understand what is being said in 1 sentence again...

so why is it happening and how can i fix it?

(Opera and Chrome browser don't even allow to log in or do some other editing stuff in wordpress lol)

"Not Signed In" MSG on next selected file when after first file OK when downloading from Google Drive

I'm using FF 76.0.1 on a Win10 platform. For testing, I've uploaded a folder that contain multiple MP4's to my Google Drive. I then Share this drive with my other email. I then want to download the content of these multiple files to a hard drive folder. Doing this to test how Download works for Google drive.

I open my received email and see the Shared invite. I log into my Google account and select the first file to download (using RT click and Download into a selected directory). A Save-As folder box opens. Everything works with the file downloading ultimately as a *.mp4 file. When I go back to the Google drive and attempt to down load a second file, I get the following pop up message...

  - You are Not signed in
 - You are signed out.  Sign back in, the click 'Retry'....there is a Retry box.

The Sign back in (in the msg) does not work, nor does the Retry box! All that happens is the box refreshes.

What I end up doing is to close the Google My drive TAB, and re-select the invite email message. This opens a new tab again that points to my shared folder. I then select my 2nd file, and download..everything works. Now when I try a 3rd file, I end up getting the same Msg again and need to close the Tab and reload from the email the Google drive.

I have turned off any AD blocker on the Google drive. It's almost something is in a cookie or cache. I don't want to constantly have to reset any of these every time. Tried once, and made no difference. Any Idea, maybe something in the FF Settings?

What I want is to be able to repeatedly pick and download files from Google to my selected folder without having to re-select the email invite. I also notice, that on the second try, I don't get asked for my Google ID/Pass like I did the first time. It's like I was sent to a third party site (Save-as pop up box) and cannot come back to the folder listing. It would be nice if the Save-As location could be reused from the previous Save with a check box.

On 77.0.

Noticed that after last update, opening a new tab with audio on the previous tab (such as a YouTube video playing) causes the audio to pause/stutter each time a new tab is opened.

No other changes to this system, and good amount of resources available in each test. Would be great if someone could quickly repro. (I am not discounting a machine-specific cause yet.)

A few days ago I signed up to a certain website and had no problems, but since then, I've been back to that website three times and all three times - as soon as the site loads my machine instantly hard crashes - the screen freezes, cursor doesn't move and I'm forced to reset. This has NEVER happened to me before in 15 years of using Firefox! The first two crashes were in Firefox v76, and the third crash was v77, so I guess it's not version-specific.

Each time I restart firefox, my profiles.ini file has been deleted. It messes up other software too.

I'm going to avoid using that site again, but I'd like to report this somehow to the developers. What's the best way to do this? I went to Buzilla but I couldn't see any way to report bugs there.

Note that I am not going to do any troubleshooting as I do not want to take any risk of another crash.
