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.

Running FireFox 77.0.1 and trying to drive an HP Envy 6255 (wireless) printer. All other programs (including Thunderbird, Adobe Reader, Microsoft Edge etc) print without problems. I have worked through each and every step of the Printing Troubleshooting steps, including refreshing and reinstallation of FireFox, without success. The only add on I am using is DuckDuckGo, and I even tried printing without it.

Everything was running fine until a few days ago. (Windows 10 updates have not been added, and even if they had slipped through, everything else is still working as of this morning.) It still works off my iOS devices. The networks have not changed. Any ideas?

Is there any way to get Firefox to NOT add the +1 country code to US phone numbers safed for autofill?

When you save a name, address, and phone number for Firefox to use to autofill online forms, Firefox automatically adds the +1 country code if the address is in the United States.

I guess someone thought that would be helpful because so many users in the United States don't know the country code because we never use it. The problem is that not only don't we use it, but almost no US online forms are designed to accept it. Virtually every form on any website in the US is set up to expect a TEN DIGIT phone number without any area code. This is especially true of forms for businesses that only do business with customers in the US.

I have rarely found any online form in the US that needs the country code -- exactly the contrary I have found numerous online forms that fail when Firefox attempts to enter a phone number with the +1 area code. Some forms reject the + as a non-numeric character. Other forms reject the entire phone number entry for having too many characters. Probably most common are forms that take the numbers as being a standard 10-digit phone number which the form truncates at just 10 digits (cutting off the last one or two digits that Firefox sends).

The fact that most online forms in the US cannot process a phone number with any country code seems strange considering how many of our web coders are international workers on H2-B visas - but it is absolutely true that most of our online forms cannot process a phone number of more than 10 digits.

I always enter the phone number as just the 10 digits, but Firefox insists on adding the +1, even when I edit the saved address to remove the +1 Firefox will soon add it again.

Love Firefox, just a little tiny detail that bugs me; my auto play/pause feature on my Bluetooth headphones is not working, while it is working perfectly on other browsers, which support AVRCP - Bluetooth profile.

Does anybody know if developers plan to support this profile in the future or if there is some workaround?

I'm on the latest version of Firefox (77.0.1 64 bit) and an up to date Windows 10 installation on an HP Pavilion 15 laptop.

Trying to upload photos and videos via WhatsApp and Facebook causes Firefox to hang (not responding) when choosing files to upload. I get the "working on it" message but nothing else. Task Manager shows the storage usage increasing and I closed the task when it got to 900+ MB. Tried several times yesterday and today with the same result after ensuring all Windows software was up to date.

Anybody got the same issue? Any clues please?

Directing shell-executed links to same desktop?

Scenario: I have defined two different virtual desktops, using Windows 10's ability to create new desktops.[1] As part of this, I have two different Firefox windows. One of them is located on Desktop A, and the second is on Desktop B.

When I click a link in an external program -- for example, Outlook, or Excel -- it shell executes that link. Firefox is set as my default browser, and so it handles the link. The problem is that when I click a link while looking at Desktop A, the link gets opened by the Firefox window on Desktop B and switches my view there, which takes me away from what I'm working on and forces me to move that tab back to Desktop A manually.

Furthermore, this is not consistent behavior. Sometimes clicking a link will cause Firefox to open a new tab in a window in the same desktop I was looking at when I clicked it. Other times it switches to the other desktop. I have not been able to figure out what determines which Firefox window gets the link.

All I really want is for links to open in the Firefox window that's already open in the same desktop as where I clicked the link. Is there some way to make that happen? I'm not sure if this a problem with Firefox or with how Windows handles shell-executing links. It could be either.

[1] This not the same as a virtual machine. For details, see this overview: https://www.cnet.com/how-to/how-to-use-multiple-desktops-in-windows-10/

Dear all,

I would like to know whether there is any way to load (some/any) sidebar content (e.g., for the sidebar created by the "Notes for Firefox" extension) as a "large version" into the main browser window?

I was already able to extend the maximum size of the sidebar on one hand and on the other hand I even extracted the files of the "Notes by Firefox" extension whose sidebar I would like to have open in the main browser window. Unfortunately, just loading the "sidebar/index.html" (as this is the "default_panel" of the "sidebar_action" mentioned inside the "manifest.json" file of the "Notes by Firefox" extension) did not work as some (a lot?) of variables are not defined...

So, is there any sort of way to get some sidebar being displayed in the common browser content window? If so, please advice how to do it. Thank you!

Best regards, Patrick

New issue began today on Surface Pro 3. When in tablet mode with no keyboard attached, and changing focus to an input field - the virtual keyboard is initialized and immediately closes and does not restore the browser window to full screen. This is persistent behavior when I change focus to non-input areas and back to an input control.

This only happens in FF. Just applied Win 10 updates. Just restarted machine several times. Reviewed osk settings as per similar post and all are correct. Uninstalled and re-installed FF. Nothing evident in event viewer.

Anyone else encountering this?

I recently bought a graphic tablet (https://www.trust.com/en/product/21794-panora-widescreen-graphic-tablet), and it works flawlessly outside of firefox. However, when holding BigBlueButton lectuers, I need to use it within firefox, which doesn't seem to work. At first I thought it was an issue with BigBlueButton, but now I tried other websites (limnu, cocreate, etc.), and they all have the same problem:

Whenever I move the pen on my graphic tablet, only the first and last 'points' are recognized. Is there a way to increase firefox's refresh rate for mouse clicks? Or is there any other solution?

I'm using firefox 68.9.0esr, 64-bit on windows 10.
