In most standard Windows applications, the title bar and tab colour follows the default Windows settings, e.g. (in my case) the title bar and tab colour of active application windows is blue. This is true even in Thunderbird. Since FF 89, title bar and tabs are something between white and light gray, which is extremely user-un-friendly. FF developer team should return to the previous colour scheme. Yes, I know the circumstances of free software but this is NO excuse to alienate millions of users. Developers that change fully functionable software just, well, just to CHANGE it should consider that they are doing WRONG. Could anyone tell them? I am just user, not developer and I am not willing to learn developer tools like BugZilla just for this simple guiding principle.

Firefox leaves full-screen mode when window manager remaps window to be in a frame and re-sizable.

In the window-manager that I use (KDE plasma), I can ask the window-manager to exit full-screen mode, without telling the window. This allows me to tell a window to be in full-screen mode, while in a framed window. I have attached a screen-shot of chrome showing a youtube video. Both youtube and the chrome are in full screen mode, however the window manager has re-sized it and added decorations (title-bar&frame), and is allowing me to resize, move, minimize, maximize, etc.

This works for every program that I have used (that has a full-screen mode). However it is not working for Firefox. It seems that Firefox is triggering off of the wrong event.

My guess: the window-manager sets NET_WM_STATE_FULLSCREEN to enter full-screen, and would normally clear this attribute to exit full screen. When we exit full-screen, but stay in full-screen mode, the attribute is not cleared. However Firefox is triggering off of something else such as a re-size event.

Use-case: What I am trying to do

  1. Enter full screen mode: browser hiders tab-bar, and address bar, maybe web-page changes layout (e.g. you-tube resizes video player to fill window)
  2. Tell Window-manager to leave full-screen-mode, but not inform browser (or other app). Browser is now still hiding tab-bar, address-bar, site is till showing video in whole-window, but window can be moved and re-sized.

This works for every other app that I have user. (Some apps don't have full-screen-mode, so this does not apply to them. But it works for all that do have it.)

Windows 10 x64 Pro Firefox 92.0

Is there a way to restore the appearance of Firefox Bookmarks to v88 or earlier? The extra space between each Bookmark is a pain and none of the "fixes" seem to work.

I am not up with messing around with css files to make things seem as they was.

I have Proton Colors Add-on and that supposed to make things look as they did before but they do not.

When Firefox updated to 91.0 I reinstalled v88 which was fine - apart from Firefox nagging me on a daily basis to update to 92.0 which I stupidly did.

Any suggestions please?

Hi guys. I have Windows PC machine running for several years now. No new program updates or installs recently, no restarts. And then yesterday, suddenly Firefox started to crash all youtube tabs. Not even videos itself, but also www.youtube.com crashes. Any idea how could i find out, what the hell is going on? Microsoft edge is working fine with youtube. I have tried troubleshoot mode, same.

What can possibly cause this? Thank you.

Referencing these threads: 1281774 1307368 1317055 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1333680 (I posted a reply to this thread, but I can't view it and the moderator has apparently closed it thinking this problem has gone away)

We can ascertain that NOTHING seems to help this condition. In fact these threads apply to me as Win 7 / 64 bit apply to me. This started probably about 1.5 years ago.

I too have this problem and yes, it is random. BUT once locked in with this condition, it may "get stuck" for another 5 attempts for the same link. BEST Example, I do surveys every Friday and Saturday night. I use my netscape (AOL) email account. At random, while clicking on the survey link the tab will come up blank and no matter what you do, you CANNOT get this tab to do ANYTHING. No reload, no clicking on a new bookmark, no clicking on home, or typing in the address bar and pressing enter on THAT particular tab. How often does it happen? Maybe 12 times a month (during survey time: maybe every other weekend).

One step further on this. My wife's account on the PC actually does this on a DAILY BASIS REPEATEDLY EVERY DAY when she opens FireFox. In her case, it can ONLY be solved by closing and reopening FireFox after waiting like...say...2 minutes after previously opening it? I have tried opening new tabs etc as mentioned above (including the old right clicky trick and using the "Open in new tab" function). Kinda silly when you have like 27 tabs of blankness. Considering it is her account on the Pc, ok, maybe the "refresh" function might work on her? BZZZT! Nope.

Current version. I can attest that a PC at my 2 jobs that both have Win 7 and at least one, if not both, have 64 bit versions and do NOT display this malady. Also, I did re-install FF about 2 years ago for some other problem. I just ran the troubleshooting more...no go. Per this lead, try https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433-9aff-95f26a218cc0... and guess what? No such help . Anyone have have something to kill this bug?

I have Windows 11 IE with all available updates as of late. Chrome works like a charm. Faster than ever, actually. However, I missed Firefox and it has all my settings the way I like and doesn't have the annoying download feature than Chrome has where it leaves little files along with the download cluttered all over your desktop.

I have had Firefox deleted from my system for months now and have been using Chrome as my daily browser. I wanted to give Firefox a chance again, seeing as I have Windows 11 IE installed, and figuring that maybe there was a Windows 10 Pro bug that was causing the slowness within Firefox, but no, it is definitely Firefox. I even installed Firefox on my M1 Macbook Pro and immediately deleted it as it was using a TON of resources and slowing down my machine.

Can ANYONE please help me in finding out what is wrong with Firefox to make it so very slow in loading for the first time upon firing up my machine. It somewhat loads ok after it's been closed and loaded again a while later, but this waiting forever for it to load on startup is absolutely ridiculous.

For the record, I don't know how to use the about:help stuff, so if you are going to suggest something, then please be very specific as I have not really dabbled in that so know next to nothing about that feature. Appreciate it.

I am writing a WebExtension to communicate with a server using XMLHttpRequest.

I load this WebExtension temporarily by about:debugging. It works well if I do not login into my Firefox account. It can get data from the server.

But after logining into my account, it returns "xmlhttp.status: 0" immediately when I trying to do the same thing.

I removed all other add-ons and WebExtensions, But still I have this problem.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I set up a Jitsi Meet server, and when starting a call, it asks for permission to use my Blu Snowball microphone.

I click yes, and it says microphone permission allowed, but Jitsi never gets access to it.

I believe this is an issue related to Firefox because I've tried multiple other browsers and it seems to just be Firefox that this issue happens with. Every other browser lets Jitsi Meet use my microphone just fine.

Please let me know if you have a solution to this or have also experienced it!

Thank you, Cross

Hello,

Windows 10 Desktop Computer Updated, Firefox 92.0

The folder I need yo go to in Documents, it goes to Downloads Instead Automatically!

When I try to get an attachment, for an email I'm sending out, it goes to the wrong folder. It just sits there doing nothing, with the hour glass on. I wait and wait, so I can change the location. Most times it doesn't stop. A very few times, when that stops, I located which folder I need, and it just goes into the hour glass mode again!

If I click on the screen, an error message comes up with something like, program not responding, do you want to close the program? or wait until it stops? With thus, I think it's dealing with the Folder that isn't responding! BUT no, when I click to close the program, LO And Behold, Firefox Closes!

I have a lot of attachments, I need to deal with. It doesn't ask me, which folder I want to get the attachment from?

Any Help Here?

Thank You!! Take Care!! Everyone Stay Healthy and Safe (Pets Also)!!!
