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 everybody

I use Firefox as my main browser and it has a standard Google search bar. Whenever I type something in the search bar there is a 1-7 second delay before the browser starts responding and doing the search. I don't experience the same delay if I directly click on a website link however.

This problem started recently and I am unable to determine exactly why. I have removed all add-ons, plug-ins, started in safe mode and tried refreshing, deleting and reinstalling but nothing seems to get rid of this search response delay.

Please help?

Hello!

This is a minor issue but it's getting a bit annoying to deal with.

Every time i watch youtube videos i need to disable and re-enable the picture in picture mode to get the blue little icon to display so i can use it.

I have tried re-installing three times, troubleshoot and it's driving me crazy. I re-installed windows due to other issues i had and this problem persists.

Does anyone know what could be wrong?

Regards Fredrik

Did the latest Firefox update "break" something?

My Firefox became infected with the Blue Screen freeze, I think through a photo icon I clicked on as a link. After trying to figure out what to do, searching for help via my phone, I finally powered off the machine, then restarted it in safe mode. That worked and I'm using it right now.

I want to do two things: (1) know for sure that the infection is out of my system and (2) open the Firefox I'm using, now beyond safe mode.

Is there still an infected Firefox file on my computer? If so, how can I remove it? Do I do that by restarting it without keying safe mode, or is there a specific process for killing the bug? How do I know when I can open without safe mode safely, without triggering the infection?

The latest MS Edge browser, forced onto my Win10 Pro pc this week, has hijacked some protocols or file types (?). Firefox is no longer my default app for these.

I can disassociate Edge from these (so at least Edge does not open automatically).

But I cannot register Firefox to open http/https links.

For example, typing "http://mozilla.org" into the Win10 start menu produces the dialog in the attached screenshot - Only option is to select an app from the MS Store to open a "microsoft-edge link".

I cannot choose Firefox, which is already registered to open http, https protocols.

Anyone able to recover from this latest Edge hijacking?

Recently (within the last couple/few days), Firefox stopped playing videos on facebook. The video is shown available on the facebook page and where it used to play when hitting the play icon, now it takes you to the video page. Pressing on the play icon there doesn't play the video either, the video page just reloads.

This does not happen when using Internet Explorer, in IE everything is working properly.

I've started FF in safe mode, same problem, disabled all plugins, same problem, refreshed FF, same problem, updated Flash installation and video drivers, no joy.

Is there something I'm missing? This just started out of the blue.

Windows 10 Pro, updates current, video drivers, firefox, flash plugin, all latest versions.
