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 can't login to Firefox Send using the Firefox browser. It says "Something Went Wrong".

I can login here - Mozilla Support - just fine. But to get into Firefox Send, I have to use another browser.

I have tried disabling all addons. No luck.

What could be wrong?

Thanks!

When expecting a package from UPS I set up a tab with the tracking number and refresh it to get the current status of the package. This worked for years but the last few years whenever said tab is accessed it has either "/TRACKDETAILS" or "/" added to the tracking number in its search textbox, and of course UPS generates an error for it. If I remove the offending characters and search then everything is fine, but if I leave the tab and come back the offending characters are back. It is always one of the two I mentioned, and it will always have one of them. I have no idea if this is a Firefox problem or not but UPS told me to go-away-the-problem-isn't-on-our-end. I'm at my wit's end to solve this, have you any insight to give? Thank you.

P.S. I should add that I have tried disabling all my various add-ons to no avail, it makes no difference.

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?

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.

Is it possible to limit scripts, say of facebook, to run only inside the facebook container using no script? While it seems facebook itself will only open up inside the facebook container, it seems that unless the facebook script is blocked by no script it runs outside the container when I'm on other sites such as my banking site. While I expect facebook scripts to be running when I'm using facebook, I'm not that excited for them to be running outside the container and turning scripts manually on and off for each container is a bit of a pain. So what I'm looking for is a way to limit which scripts run in each container and have that the default when I open the container.

In the Library window, the search feature is not limited to the current folder, but it searches in all bookmarks or history, depending on which one is selected.

Search under the current folder only is standard functionality for such features.

There is no add-on that conveniently mimics this feature.

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.

Hi,

I've been experiencing a strange problem with Firefox.

If I click a link from an external app (e.g Outlook), it begins loading in Firefox but will then reset to my homepage which is Google. I am not doing anything to trigger this reset (holding any keys, etc) I am simply just clicking the link, which launches Firefox and resets from loading the link to my homepage. It's very frustrating.

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?
