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.

I am using Opensuse 15.0 and also 15.1. Haven't made a complete move over yet. There is a recurring situation when 4GB rx and 4GB tx movement that I cannot account for hits my 15.0 about once a month. Today it happened again. Using vnstat, I found it happened between 10.00 - 11.00. :

Searched the cookies, one site i cannot recognize came out; "consensu.org". Did a search, there were several, example: https://cmp.teads.mgr.consensu.org/index.html, that served blank pages in firefox. Is there anything odd here? Is there a way I can extract all the cookies with date & time so that I can check against previous occurrences of the 4GB data movements (I have a few records).

I'm running Windows 10. Firefox was being very laggy so I did a Firefox refresh but that didn't solve the laggy problem so I did a Windows 10 Refresh.

After the Refresh I reinstalled the latest version of Firefox and copied the old profile folder (which was also on the latest Firefox version) to the new profile folder. The first start worked fine but if I restart Firefox I get a blank grey window with the words "Window ID Main Window". If I do a safe mode start of Firefox it works fine but I don't have access to my extensions.

What can I do to check?

A recent up date to Zonealarm flagged a part (might have even been the executeable) of Firefox as having some malware, and automatically quarantined it, with the consequence that was unable to use it. It wouldn't even open. Consequently, I had to clean the remainder out and reinstall FF and set it up again to my liking. Since then, Email Link is not working properly. In fact it runs wild and is difficult to stop. In the Options>>Application I have mailto set to Use Microsoft Outlook just as it was before the reinstall which worked correctly. Now what happens is it gets itself into a never-ending reiteration or opening a new tab in FF, which then does something to open a new iteration of Outlook with the legend Navigation to the webpage was cancelled as shown in the attached screenshot. This somehow manages to open another new tab in FF and so on and so forth, until I manage to stop it. Below is the address I was testing with in a separate FF instance, and was a link to Google which is normally my default New Tab page (don't judge!) mailto:?body=https%3a%2f%2fwww.google.co.nz%2f&subject=google I don't recognise much of the items on the menu bar, and if I click on the drop down menu where the above address appears, all it comes up with is Add or Remove buttons. I am rather at a loss of where to go with this. The version of Office that I am using is Office 2003 as it is the last without the damned ribbon, which I hate. I hope someone can come up with a solution for this, so thanks in advance.

I've been using Firefox for years most recently on a Windows machine but I've just switched back to a Mac. I'm having issues with bookmarks and I'm doing what I've always done but now am having a couple issues so I don't know if it is due to switching systems or if I have an issue.

In any case... I like my bookmarks in the toolbar so that is where I aim to put them. I exported my bookmarks from my PC, imported the file and thought I was fine but now I see that not all of the bookmarks are there in the toolbar, most are but not all. Then when I check the recently bookmarked, the missing ones are listed among the others but do not appear where I can find them.

Then I exported from my work PC to a file as before, imported the file and can not find any of them anywhere, keep trying and can't find them.

And now while on a page I click the blue star as I always have, have it pointed to the toolbar folder, click done, check the toolbar and not there. Keep trying and during the process I see an option to remove 3 bookmarks next to option DONE, so I suspect it is something I'm not understanding but on my PC I've never had issues with this.

Hi,

I want the users to be able to update Firefox themselves. right now it says "Update failed. download the latest version" but when I do that that doesn't work either.

I already unblocked https://aus3.mozilla.org and ^.*mozilla.*$, but that doesn't work. From where do the updates come from? Can I get the update.xml myself?

The web filter we use is Websense Triton.

https://aus3.mozilla.org/update/3/Firefox/33.0.2/20141027150301/WINNT_x86-msvc/en-US/release/Windows_NT/update.xml this URL doesn't work.

Still running Mac OS 10.9.5. Firefox has asked multiple times to upgrade to Firefox verson 39. But each time I check to download it, it does, and then when I restart, as instructed, it has remained on 37.0.2. It does not ever go ahead and install the new version. ???? This is on a laptop without great excess memory, could this be the problem? (Also this last time, just before it requested to upgrade, I was in the middle of an action and all of the tabs closed, and did not allow me to reopen anything. I had to quit and restart, but lost what I was working on.
