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 have no where else to go now and I could really use some help. P.S: I use oculus rift, my gpu is Nvidia gtx 980Ti and I don't have an integrated gpu because my processor is Amd ryzen 1600

In the Firefox Developer Tools I always get "5,62KB (raced)" (see attached image) and looking at my server logs, it does actually fetch the page, but it still shows an old version. The content supplied by the server is definitely the new version and other browsers don't seem to have this problem.

Thanks in advance for your help!

No, i am not being a smart@$$, i just was wondering.

It seems to me that Tab Mix Plus was a very popular extension, not just one of my favorites. Because of this, i would think that if the structure of FireFox would allow, someone would probably by now have created a compatible version. This leads me to think there must be some aspects that can be handled by an extension, and some that can not due to internal coding.

I can't understand why the FireFox development team wouldn't work with the community to provide those Tab Mix Plus enhancements to the internal coding that no longer can be created by an extension. It would seem like the competitive thing to do, so i must believe that there either is a real security reason, or simply the old extension was not as popular as i think it was.

I'm afraid i must admit that it has been so long that there are probably many alternative replacements to the Tab Mix Plus features that i don't recall, yet i really did prefer a setting to open links in a new tab rather than having to hold down Ctrl at the same time of clicking - i know it seems picayune, but it still is a preference!

I only mess around with VBA, so please use the "big print and pictures" method of explanation :)

Thank-you for your thought!

American Express Site Scripting Issues - won't log on via main page; 10x tries to log-off

Has anyone else noted issues with AmEx site? Using Win10/FF76, with NoScript 11.0.25 (& previous). NoScript is only extension.

Since AmEx redesigned their website several (many?) months ago, I've had increasing issues using Firefox to log-on the site via their (bookmarked) new log-in page (a bookmarked link to their old log-on page still works, as do all my other banking/financial sites, as well as 98% of other sites). Log-on button reacts when clicked, but no action - doesn't seem to run its script. Initially, allowing permissions multiple cycles using NoScript (as is typical for some sites, as scripts load) was sufficient (I try to reduce scripts to minimum necessary, always excluding Facebook scripts). Logging on via link from AmEx home page sometimes worked slightly better. However, internal site functions seemed to need multiple refreshes on load. Within the last two months, only completely disabling NoScript for AmEx tab worked. Today, not even disabling or uninstalling NoScript completely worked. In addition, today cannot log-out of AmEx site without multiple (~10x) clicks on the log-out button (webpage seems to gradually close down functionality with each click and twirl of the script indicator, similar to functionality loading issue previously noted).

Clearing all cache and cookies (per FF forum help) works one time - log-on can be accomplished with two attempts, but log-out continues problematic. Subsequent log-ons problematic.

As before, problem repeated on other computers (today, two other computers using Win10/FF76; one with a new Win10 and FF install w/o NS).

Previously, other browsers unaffected (Old MS Edge, Opera). Today, using MS Chrome Edge, AmEx site worked without problem. However, noted that AmEx log-on page loaded with Edge was old-style (that still works with FF, also), not new. All SSL certs (FF and Edge) verified.

AmEx doesn't have any link to their Web Support - I guess I have to write them a letter.. Suspect it's a problem on their end, not FF, but have run into several sites lately where FF either doesn't run well, or is specifically not supported. Don't want to give up privacy features and independence of FF, but would like some ammo to hit AmEx with, if it's indeed an engineered problem with their site.

This whole thing seems kinda like a whole mess. Don't know exactly when it did start, maybe for around 2 weeks now, but it's getting progressively worse.

The first problem that started came with downloads. Almost everything except image files (.gif, .jpg, .png so far as I checked) fails. Pdfs, exe, jars and so on can't be downloaded. Not even download window pops up. Only does that for images.

  • Tried downloading with Microsoft Edge, it works.
  • Tried downloading on firefox using Safe Mode, works as well.
  • Made second Administrator account and everything works there too.
  • When uninstalling using control panel got error "Can't initialize plug-ins directory",
  • when trying to launch firefox installed to maybe uninstall firefox that way I got error about not being able to create temp.
  • Both install and uninstall worked on second Administrator.
  • I also tried uninstalling antivirus software before, didn't seem to change anything too.

Now, while trying different sollutions, I noticed that sound on firefox wasn't working anymore. I noticed it when trying between these two options:

  • Turning off Firefox hardware acceleration
  • Resetting settings on applicable browser.download settings in about:config

Turning on Firefox hardware acceleration didn't fix.

So like... This whole thing is confusing mess. Any help?

Hey guys, I am having a bit of a problem here. I am trying to completely get rid of both the "Customize..." button and the "Remove Extension" button completely with the exception of the "Remove" button in Firefox Add-ons. I want to make it where I cannot see any of the two, nor be able to click on any of them. My reason for this is simple, I have an extension that isn't fully protected by either "FoxFilter" or "Public Fox" (which are both very effective extensions but each have their own shortcomings), which is called "eScan Web Blocker." This extension while effective, can still be easily deleted without having to go into the "Add-ons" button and going through the usual password check before deleting.

All you have to do is drag and drop from the Customize... menu after you click on the Customize... button and then right click, move cursor to "Remove Extension" button and left click on said option before confirming the extension's removal.

Again, what I need to have happen is for both the "Customize..." button on the context menus and on the main menu (the button that has an icon of three horizontal bars running parallel to each other) and the "Remove Extension" button removed from the context menus as well. I only should, after all is said and done, be able to delete this extension or ones with similar flaws by ONLY CLICKING ON THE ADD-ONS BUTTON AND GOING THROUGH A PASSWORD CHECK.

Please help me. I don't know what to do. I am using Firefox Developer Edition on my Windows 10 Home Desktop PC. I have attached visual aid in order to show you guys what I am talking about. And please explain this to me as simple as you possibly can. Also, sorry if the screen shots are so big, I use a computer that has a GTX 1080 graphics card (4k gaming graphics card).

Problem 1: CTRL key causes ZOOM (no my keys are not stuck as they work fine in Chrome). I have for now fixed it by turning the scroll options (as recommended in forums here to "0"). However this is the second time this had happened. Problem 2: Search engine randomly changes. If I use the search window from the customize link, the drop down also does not work which means I cannot switch the search engine simply using the drop down menu. Problem 3: Drop down menus in some websites dont work. Example is multiple saved logins on say an email website. Usually it shows you a drop down menu for all the login names to choose from. Now, the menu flicks for a second and I cannot choose anything (similar to problem 2).

Please advise. Thanks
