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 recently starting using browser-based Gmail on Firefox (version 80.0 (64-bit)). When I now to try to send an email from MS Word and other programs I receive the message "There is no email program associated to perform the requested action. Please install an email program or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel." I also get a MAPI error. How do I link these programs to Firefox-based email?

Firefox was updated last night on my laptop. After the install it started for several seconds then shut down. Every time I tried to start it it did the same. I used the troubleshooting page when it eventually did load which recommended clearing the cache and refreshing Firefox. Having done a refresh before I was surprised to see that there was no Old profile folder (or whatever it's called). After this I tried to start Firefox and received the error message "Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessable. It was now impossible to start Firefox as all I got was the same message. I thought something had gone wrong with the update, or refresh, so decided to uninstall, then reinstall. This did not solve the problem either. I am now stuck without Firefox on my laptop. OS is Windows 10pro version 2004.

More of an FYI rather than a question.

The Google Cloud Console (console.cloud.google.com) navigation menu has been unresponsive in Firefox for two days now. I tested this on both my MacBook Pro and my Windows PC. I logged in on a Chromium browser, the new Edge, and the menu works. I don't have Chrome installed on either my PC or my Mac, but I assume it works.

Not sure if this is a Firefox issue or a Google issue. Basic things like clearing history and cookies didn't help.

Running current updated WIN10. After updating Firefox, it will not launch. I get multiple messages, saying that Firefox is already running, close the current Firefox. I have removed all mozilla apps for a fresh install. Yet it continues to do the same. I am forced to use Edge.

Anyone experiencing the same, and any answers?

Windows Mail App opens hyperlinks minimized in Firefox

About 3 weeks ago, I started using the Windows Mail App as my email client. Every time I try to click on an email hyperlink within the body of an email, it opens the link minimized in Firefox. I then have to go to the task bar, click on the Firefox icon to maximize and then view the link.

Prior to this, I was using Outlook as my email client. I never had this issue when using Outlook. I would simply click on a hyperlink within the body of an email, and it would automatically populate a maximized and ready to be viewed tab in Firefox.

I tried to reach out to Windows support, and of course, they are claiming this is a Firefox browser issue. They are stating that I have to tell Firefox the way HTM's are handled. However, I don't see such option in Firefox and as I explained, I never had to do this when using Outlook in conjunction with Firefox.

Thanks in advance for any help provided. FYI - if it is of any help, I am running the latest version of Windows 10, and the latest version of the Firefox browser (80.0.1).

My mouse scroll wheel sometimes goes from scrolling webpages to magnifying. I have done nothing to trigger this behavior. Closing the browser, Firefox 80.0.1, usually reverts the mouse wheel to scrolling buy not always. How can I fix this so mouse wheel only scrolls unless I change the setting?

Until recently, whenever I would drag & drop a website address to my desktop from Firefox, it would create a shortcut with the website icon. But now it just creates a Firefox icon with a URL file and no option to change the icon. It is not a shortcut. Edge Chromium also does the same now. What happened? I am using Windows 10 v2004 64bit and Firefox 80.0.1 64bit. I have one other desktop and two laptops that still work as always and create an actual shortcut with the website icon.

So, this is quite a recent problem that i've noticed. When i go to Youtube's home page, it loads the few first videos' thumbnails, but then, about the 3rd row of thumbnails, it stops loading more thumbnails and keeps showing the loading icon forever.

I've visited Youtube on Chrome and it works just fine. I've cleared my cookies and cache data on Firefox and it worked, but it doesn't take long for the problem to appear again. Sorry, but what am i missing here?

Thank you in advance!

The world is not-so-slowly getting undermined by sophisticated technical attacks on our understanding of reality (pretty much any topic - take politics as an example). One of the newer technology is the ability to create, through sophisticated digital editing tools that utilize artificial intelligence, videos that simulate public figures doing or saying whatever the author wishes. There are DeepFake pornographic movies with popular actors and politicians. They run the gamut of ones imagination. Without specific tools to detect and block such products, we're all just sitting ducks in a rising tide of disinformation.

I would like to see a tool embedded in Firefox that detects and notifies the user/viewer of deepfake graphics: photo or video images.

There are of course issues. Performance is certainly one. This might be mitigated by having images buffered in the cloud where they could be analyzed with high performance hardware - then they could be downloaded to our smartphones and other devices. People with high end hardware could do this locally as an option.

I could go on, but I think I've summarized the need.

Here's a tool that Microsoft just released: https://techcrunch.com/2020/09/02/microsoft-launches-a-deepfake-detector-tool-ahead-of-us-election/
