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 Set Foxit reader as my default app in the applications section of Firefox options. I have also set "allow" in the privacy and security section of options. When I click on a video file I received via email, a window pops up asking me "how do I want to handle this". It shows that Foxit reader is a default app and I, therefore, click on the box that says "always open files using this app". The next time I click on a different video file, doesn't automatically open. Instead, the how do you want to handle this window pops up again. Can somebody tell me how to correct this problem?

TIA James Birke.

Hi:

I set my privacy options for CUSTOM and for blocking everything under it, in all windows. I allowed some exceptions for storing cookies for some websites.

I cleared cookies and cache and after a short time, websites in the exception list saved cookies (as displayed under MANAGE).

Next day, I noticed all kinds of other cookies that I cannot relate to or from websites that should be blocked (are not exceptions). 

I attached a screen capture of a subset of cookies stored since yesterday. Only connect.xfinity.com and malwarebytes.com in this subset of cookies belong to websites on the exception list.

Could someone explain why the other cookies were not been blocked? Is this how blocking is supposed to work? I looked at all the help articles on the topic I could find but I have not seen any explanation for this.

Thanks.

I am looking at the information displayed under the "shield" icon for teh websites I am using and I am not sure how to read it and understand it.

I am attaching 2 screen captures. Two questions.

1. One of the screen captures shows what I see for the shield under cookies. One of the websites listed there is marked as "blocked". If other listed websites (like the 3rd party one) shown are not identified as Blocked, does that mean that they are not blocked, despite the fact that all cookies have been blocked in CUSTOM?

2. The other screen capture shows a subset of what's allowed under exceptions. The https://connect.xfinity.com website is one of them. Then is this website is an exception, why does teh shield show the cookie for their website as blocked?

Does anyone know how this works? Is this the way it is supposed to work and if so, can someone explain? Thanks.

I noticed a certificate in the People tab of the Certificate Manager, and I don't know where it came from.

It says Certificate Name "SomeOrganization" "sp-control-01", email address "root@sp-control-01", Expires on "November 12, 2019".

Where could have this come from. And is it a problem? I worry that it is from some malware site which put a fake certificate on my firefox or something?

Is there a way to see when or how it was added?

Thanks!

There's one, and so far only one, website that is driving me batshit crazy when viewed in Firefox.

When logged into GMail, after having had a chat using Hangouts, there will be a status message at the top of the browser window (Where it usually just says something like "Website Title - Firefox") it cycles through that message and "Someone's Name Says ...". The cycle is pretty fast, drawing my attention no matter how much I am trying to avoid it.

I have been searching to my fingers bleed, but I can't find a way to turn the torture off! Please help me, I much prefer Firefox for my Gmail, keeping at least one layer between me and the Borg, but if I can't fix this it's Game Over Man for that idea...

I have an HP Elitebook 850 G6 laptop with a Dell U2410 monitor connected through an HP Ultraslim docking station (D9Y32AA).

If I set the Dell monitor as my primary screen (my preference) and open Firefox on the HP screen, the dropdown windows from all the extensions on my address bar are truncated (e.g. Duck Duck Go, Norton, Bitwarden). They don't have scroll bars and I can't get to items in them that I need to. Interestingly, the Firefox dropdowns (View History, Firefox Account, Menu) are also all truncated but they all have scroll bars.

I have discovered that in Windows Display Settings the HP screen Scaling is by default set to "125% (Recommended)". If I set it to 100%, the problem goes away. If I set it to 150%, the dropdowns get longer but still not enough for me to access stuff at the bottom of the extension dropdowns.

I'm not sure if this is an HP screen problem, a Firefox problem or a Windows problem. I'm beginning to think it's an HP one because if I set the HP screen as the primary and set the Dell monitor to 125%, or 150%, there is no problem. However I thought I'd post this here in case it is a Firefox issue. I figure Firefox would want to know about it if it is Firefox-related.

I'd be glad to hear any thoughts on how I might be able to fix this myself, or where you believe the problem lies.

Cheers, Nick.

The is only the title corresponding to the hinge and an empty window. The second picture is visible (identical as in other browsers).

From FF 83 change notes: Selecting a search engine at the bottom of the search panel now enters search mode for that engine, allowing you to see suggestions (if available) for your search terms. The old behavior (immediately performing a search) is available with a shift-click.

But I found out that I don't like new behavior, bc I never use it, and it requires more clicking for me.

Is there a way to restore immediate searching without using shift?

Now, this happens again in Kazakhstan. Today, 6th of December our mobile service providers sent SMS to everyone living in Nur-Sultan (former Astana), Kazakhstan regarding some kind of "Cyber training" and the urge to install a certificate on the devices.

The certificate is attached. Please, check the issue and if possible block it asap.
