I have installed this enhanced Profile Manager :

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Profile_Manager

I cannot find any release history. Has this product been kept up to date, and does it work correctly with the last Firefox version ? Can it be used in parallel with the regular Profile Manager ?

My problem is, both my profiles are shown as locked (see screen grab). A locked profile, as I understand it, is currently in use, and should not be used by another instance of Firefox, in order to avoid corruption.

However, my profiles are always shown as locked, even when Firefox is not open yet. The same happens after Firefox is launched : the profile that's not being used is still "locked".

Hello

The downloads box when I click the down arrow "Show More Downloads" expands to a large box with NO OPTION to close it. It remains open, and takes the whole screen up. I have only been able to move it to the side, but still not been able to close it for weeks (unless I restart my computer, but which then, when I click Show More Downloads again.. it happens again).

There are no red/yellow/green options to make the box smaller, larger or close it!

I've tried searching everything and still no answers, and it it slowing down my internet browsing too (making it often crash).

See screen shot attached.

Firefox has stopped uploading files of more than 500k. In Yahoo mail on smaller files the green upload bar shows and the file loads when it is complete. On larger files the green progress bar never shows up and eventually the message is check you internet connection.

There are no problems when using IE or Chrome.

The two machines which have problems are both Win7. A new Win10 machine is OK using the same add on's (Adblock and FX Chrome).

Firefox has been started in safe mode, had all add on's removed and had a clean install. None of these steps have solved the problem.

I've just upgraded to Firefox 42.0 and, unlike previous versions, the background color setting in "Content" does not work anymore. On the setting page the "Background color" indicator does change to the color I select (not the white one) from the color theme choices, but whenever I open a blank window the background color is always white. Then, when I go back to the setting page to check, that indicator still shows the color I have chosen. And whether I tick the "Use the system color" box or not tick it, the result remains the same -- the background color of a blank window is always white.

This is a problem I have never encountered before. I would like to find out why.

Thank you for any help.

I've had this problem several versions ago, and don't recall that it was adequately addressed.

Think of it this way... FF thinks the Windows taskbar is auto-hiding, and extends its windows to the bottom as a result.

Maxing the window helps, but only for that session. It'll happen again when the same site is opened later.

One site it's known to occur consistently is weismarkets.com, a chain of food-markets in the Northeast USA.

Now what? Just manually resize the window at the bottom, then do a Ctrl-dblclick on the last open FF?

The videos wont play or load at all. As will the thumbnails. The comments section constantly says "loading". I have tried every thing listed on the website here to fix these problems. The only thing that has worked to be honest was loading Internet Explorer. Adblock plus and Flashplayer plugins are either removed or disabled. Tried making a new profile as well as deleting the folder in %appdata%. It works for a while and then randomly does it again.

Things that MAY assist in this problem. Youtube is the only website that does this when it comes to videos. Sites require a flash use sometimes wont play even though everything is clean installed. I have Nvidia Geforce experience running with shadowplay enabled to also record desktop connections. Since it uses the h.24 codec I thought it was clashing with it causing the problem. I can turn shadowplay off and reload the youtube page 2 to 3 times and the main video only will play.

Finally I gave up the other day , put everything back the way it was and put the computer to sleep. When I woke up I decided what the hey, Ill just load youtube up for laughs to see if it magically fixed. Well it did. Then tonight its back to square one again. I had noticed my yahoo home page with the news wouldnt change articles when moused over. So I decided to try the webtools / network tool to reload the page. It fixed yahoo flash run news articles but then my youtube problem came back! Ive had fire fox for as long as I can remember and never had problems with it! If Ive come here, it means ive given up being stubborn. I pride myself on fixing my own problems , but this one has me so I yield.

Okay, this has happened before in the past but now it's happening consistently to the point that there were websites I can't access at all.

When I type a URL into Firefox and try to go to that website, Firefox keeps adding an entirely different URL to the front of it so that I can't access the site. For instance. I keep trying to go to http://nanowrimo.org. I type that into the bar but when I hit enter Firefox changes it to http://www.dell.comhttp//nanowrimo.org/.

Obviously that site doesn't exist. Then, if by some miracle I DO get to the site I'm trying to get to, if I hit refresh or try to go to another page on the site the dell url appears at the start and I get the Server Not Found error. I am not using bookmarks. I'm typing these things in by hand. My bookmarks work without any trouble. I tried disabling the fixup that adds www to the front of URLs but that didn't have any effect.

What's going on and how do I stop it?

I had problems with Firefox crashing lately, and it may have something to do with one of the plugins.

I have Windows XP, (yeah I know, stupid Microsoft doesn't support XP help anymore), and so getting the latest version of this will be tricky, let alone impossible. Should I change the setting in my Firefox to "never activate"?

i have 15 days now, when i use Yahoo! mail to my computers (two different laptop in different places), Mozilla stop responding for 1-3 seconds and after shut down unexpectedly (without my permission). Always give me a window that Mozilla have a problem and must shut down and sometimes told me that is plugin container problem (5% of all closes). I restart Mozilla many times and always make the same... but ONLY when i use Yahoo! mail. For example if i try to delete email, browse between folders in my email or try to write new message, Mozilla can close unexpectedly ! I don't have this proble in every other page on internet !

I make all the suggestions that i find in forums like new drivers for my vga card, clean cookies, re-install Mozilla but the problem still here and it's about ONLY for Yahoo! mail

Somebody can help me because i'm tired with this !

It appears as of 42.0 you can no longer have a proper pop-up for "preferences", unfortunately this means that it opens in a tab.

How do you set it to open in a new window (not in a new tab)?

Also, where is the alternate color set configuration for the preferences tab so it matches your normal OS color set instead of the default firefox color set, without interfering with the default color set for the web browsing?
