I want to use a command option to open a new blank tab in a specified portable instance of Firefox using a specified profile.

I constructed my command like this:

"Path-to-Firefox-executable" -profile "Path-to-Profile" -new-tab "about:blank"

It partially works (it opens the correct instance of Firefox and uses the correct specified profile) however it always opens about:newtab instead of about:blank.

Seeing as I am specifying the exact page to open, any New Tab settings in the browser should not matter, and I should just get the page that has been specified in the command.

If I manually type about:blank into the url bar, then a blank page opens as expected, so the url is correct, it just won't work for me as part of the above command line.

Does anybody else have this issue? How can I get this to work correctly?

I just got a new computer, and I'm trying to copy-and-paste a profile over from the old computer to the new one, but this doesn't seem to be working. Firstly, when I click on the Firefox icon on my new computer (Windows 11), the profile manager doesn't start up, so I can't choose the old profile. I've tried copying over all of the old files into the new profile folder, and that didn't work, either. What's going on?

I recently logged out of Firefox and cannot log back in because the process requires an authenticator app, which I have no clue which would work. I have MS Authenticator and Google Authenticator but neither of them bring up any codes sent from Firefox. What on earth can I do? Delete my account and then create a new account with that same email again? However, I can't do that, because I can't login! I'm presently login with another email address, which is how I am posting on this forum. Thanks for your help.

Ok, so it might just be a coincidence or not. But after an update on my portable version of FF, when I go to youtube.com I get lots of blank bits. (See 1st picture)

Can't click on any of the elements.

I've cleared youtube cookies, signed out, signed back in. Still the same.

New Private window does the same.

I haven't found any other sites/pages behaving badly.

Chrome displays youtube fine (See 2nd pic), so it's not youtube.

Any help would be great. Thanks. j

At some point in the winter of '21 I created a folder of bookmarks that was saved in the 'bookmarks menu'. At a later date, hard to say when but probably '22 or early '23 I deleted these bookmarks. I now desperately need to recover them.

The oldest auto-backup from 'Manage Bookmarks' -> 'Import and Backup' -> Restore is dated mid '23 and does not contain the deleted bookmarks.

Is there any hope of recovering them? For example via the Recycle Bin or by using a data recovery tool? Or will they have been overwritten?

Speed test on a freshly booted machine is 100/100Mbps ... very often after viewing a youtube video in Firefox, this Speed test can slow down to below 20Mbps which results in a poor streaming experience ... I have a 150/150 fiber connection and the modem speed test doesn't change ... nothing to do with anything downstream ... not running anything else except FF ... always running with the latest up to date version(s) ... things of note: the process count goes up when this occurs ... even if FF is restarted it doesn't resolve this issue ... only a reboot resolves the issue ... when rebooting there is always some UNKNOWN process that needs to be manually terminated before the reboot process runs.

I suspect one of the multilayered (FF appears to open multiple sessions with streaming) processes may be getting widowed and left running and not releasing resources which causes less and less bw to be available ... this appears to occur mostly if I either Fast Forward or try to click forward or backward on a stream timeline suggesting to me that the current timeline may not be closing properly ... process manager doesn't reveal any processes linked to firefox but there are numerous svchost processes which I expect may be involved

Are there other ways/tools to narrow down this issue so the Mozilla team might be able to fix this ... I use FF exclusively but this has become more and more of an annoyance.

My i7 2TB 2.6GHz 8GB laptop is unable to move beyond W7 64b pro but I have had the same experience on a W10 64b Pro machine so very skeptical that this is an OS related issue.

Ultimately if FF kept track of the PIDs it opens it should be able to force them to close if they refuse to close on their own. Kill Process tree ... or ... perhaps provide a log that is user accessible identifying opened PIDs so that a user could manually kill widow processes without having to reboot.

Hello, i need to enable and disable for privacy reasons, the setting "media.peerconnection.enabled" (aka WebRTC) via GUI to avoid to go everytime into about:config settings, search for the string, and double click it to disable or enable.

If is fleasible i prefer to add a custom icon in the customization tools bar windows, so i can drag it and move into the upper part of firefox freely (for example i would like to have it above url bar in the left corner, above the 3 lines application menù.

Thanks in advance if someone can help me.
