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.

Hi,

Using Firefox version 83.0 on MacBook Pro 2019 16 inch model. When I pause a video on any webpage, I hear a sudden loud "crack" sound from the speakers. It also happens when I unpause, jump backward or forward in the video. If I mute the sound of the video and try to pause/unpause, there is no problem.

I checked the same situation with other browsers. There are no problems with them.

I hope there is a solution to this.

Thanks.

I have constructed a smart bookmark using places query places query like: place:queryType=0&sort=8&domain=mydomain.com

The full URL is something like: https://mydomain.com?model=product&id=282

Now I want to further restrict the results by filtering out certain HTTP GET Parameter values. for example:

  • I want to leave out URLs having model as a parameter in the URL
  • I want to include URLs having 'product' as a value for parameter model

I looked at the documentation and could find anything related to GET parameters. Is this possible?

Hi all,

After month of using, the screenshot function of Firefox seems to have disappeared. Right click contextual menu does now show the option to take a screenshot and the [three dots] -> Take Screenshot menu action does nothing. Moreover, the icon of the function seems to be missing (see attached images). I run latest (83 64-bit) version on a new MacBook pro.

I recently posted a question on how to fix Yahoo articles pictures not showing-up (it's about half of the pictures in some articles). It appears to be related to pictures that are tied to Instagram, Twitter, etc. I did get a couple of responses to my issue....thank you. The problem is that neither response fixed the problem. Yahoo is a major site that Firefox should fully support. Microsoft Edge works perfectly when using the Yahoo site. I have been a long, long time Firefox user on multiple devices, but I am about ready to switch to Edge for good if this can't be corrected. How do I (or anybody seeing this) let the Firefox developers know this problem needs to be fixed stat?

Thanks, Jim

I also recently upgraded my phone- my collections haven't transferred over to my new phone and that's also frustrating. I might just be an idiot but i can't seem to find any documentation on whether collections syncs between desktop and mobile; an indication that this is generally thought to be so obvious it needs no documentation.

When pressing the speaker icon in Google Translate, I get a toast message saying "Can't playback audio. Try refreshing page." I also have a plugin that uses an online library of sounds to pronounce highlighted words, but does not produce any audio when pressing play.

Things I've tried:

  • Restarting Firefox
  • Restarting my Machine
  • Toggling all auto-play features, hardware acceleration, extensions, and plugins
  • Starting Firefox in Safe Mode
  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Configuring speakers
  • Re-enabling Firefox in Windows Firewall

In the Developer console I get the following error message: DOMException: An unknown error occurred while processing decodeAudioData. (Attached screenshot)

My current Windows version is 1909

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Every so often when Firefox updates - but not every time it updates - it reverts to the status of tabs from some time before: for whatever date it chooses (in the case of today it chose November 7th) it brings up the tabs that were open on that day. This means it brings up tabs I closed in the weeks after November 7th and it loses all new tabs I have opened since November 7th; if I opened and closed them since November 7th they are not in history - all tabs that were opened since November 7th disappear without a trace, so none of the new tabs that were open that I was working on are available after the update.

Why is this happening? And what can I do about it?

Whenever I have to go to a videoconference hosted through the browser (like GoogleMeet or Theranest), Firefox asks me to choose a camera, but it doesn't allow me to choose the built-in FaceTime camera on my iMac. The only option it offers is EpocCam, which I have installed on my phone but never use. (I've attached a screenshot so you can see that I can't choose any other camera – it just doesn't give me the option!) I must have selected EpocCam once several months ago, but I cannot figure out how to get rid of it as an option on Firefox and I can't choose the built-in camera. I've searched for hours to find a solution but can't figure out how to deal with this. I don't have a similar problem on Safari, which is the only other browser I have installed at this point; and I don't want to migrate all my stuff to a new browser just because of this presumably easy-to-solve problem. Help!
