Firefox 69: support page lists path to Firefox binary

Mozilla added the path of the Firefox binary to the web browser's support page in Firefox 69 to make it easier for Firefox users to find out from where Firefox was started.

Firefox's aboutConfusedupport page offers a wealth of information: from links to the profile folder and update folder over information on the multiprocess status and browser version, to modified preferences, installed extensions and Mozilla installed extensions, and WebRender information.

All Firefox users need to do is load aboutConfusedupport in the browser's address bar to access it. A click on the Firefox menu and the selection of Help > Troubleshooting Information opens it as well.

Firefox versions before 69 list the update folder and profile folder path but not the application directory and binary that was launched. While that is not a problem on a system with a single Firefox installation, it could be difficult to tell which Firefox version was started if multiple versions are installed on systems or used as portable versions.

Users who just install a single copy of Firefox on a system may benefit from the new information as well as it highlights the directory of the Firefox installation.

A new bug was added to [email protected] in May 2019 that confirms the train of thought:

Quote:It can be challenging to find out where Firefox is installed from a user since there seems no way in the UI to get it and when a user has multiple installs they might not know which one was started by the OS.
