Hi everyone,

I'm running Firefox which I compiled with vaapi support because I was trying to use hardware acceleration for videos, so I think this bug may have something to do with that. Every time I open a pdf file my browser instantly crashes. When I use troubleshoot mode I have no such issue. I then tried with a fresh all-default user profile with no add-ons, nothing, and still I crash when loading a PDF. Any pointers would be appreciated.

Do Firefox menus appear differently in Windows 10 than they do in Windows 7?

In Windows 7, I see the normal system menus - square corners, light blue menu item highlights, 3D column line on the left, dark drop shadow below and to the right of the menu.

In Windows 10 I notice differences - gray-highlighted menu items, rounded corners, no drop shadow, etc.

I'm not using any code to style the menus.

Please see attached images.

Thanks to all who respond.

Hi All,

Any idea why the menu code I'm using below to reduce padding in menu items is only affecting Firefox in Windows 10, but not in Windows 7?

Please see attached images.

It's a very strange anomaly. This is true for both FF 125 and FF 115 ESR.

Thanks to all who respond.

My Windows virus protection shows nothing but I keep getting notices int he lower right corner of my screen that say Mozilla Firefox ESR and tell me there is an infection. It tries to take me to a website to scan and then buy McAfee to fix it. If I make sure Firefox is shut down (forced through Task Manager) it seems to go away. It appears that only the Firefox browser may be infected.

Bookmarks Toolbar Popup Menu Padding, Color, and more.

Hi All,

I'm trying to change the appearance of the "Bookmarks Toolbar / Chevron >>" popup menu, which (after version 88) has turned bright white with extra padding between menu items and rounded corners.

I'm a fan of system menus, so I would really like the popup menu to look like the regular bookmarks menu from the top menu bar (see attached image).

I also like the subtle chiseled vertical line separating the favicons and the descriptions, and the 1px gray border around the menu, plus square corners.

I took a guess at some of the variable names, but only the menu's background color has changed.

Maybe someone knows how to change other attributes such as border color, radius, menu-item-height, padding, and add in the 3D vertical column line?

Thank you!

Here is my first attempt at the code...

#PersonalToolbar menupopup {
  /* Text color */
  --menu-color: #000 !important;
  --arrowpanel-color: #000 !important;
  --panel-color: #000 !important;
  /* Background color */
  --menu-background-color:  #f0f0f0 !important;
  --arrowpanel-background: #f0f0f0 !important;
  --panel-background: #f0f0f0 !important;
  /* Border color (if any) */
  --menu-border-color: #606060 !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
  --menu-border: 1px !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
  --menu-border-radius: 0px !important;  /* not working on boomarks toolbar menu */
}

Hi All,

I would like the content area of my tabs moved up so that the box is filled with the actual tab color, without the white background, and also the text will be vertically centered. Right now, the text is dropping too close to the bottom of the tab.

Had this looking very nice in FF 88 with the same code, as you can see in the attached images, but it seems to render differently in FF 115 ESR and FF 125.

Below is some code I used to style the tabs, but the problem exists without this code as well.

I've also included some "tabs on bottom" code I'm using as well at the very bottom.

Would sure like to get those Classic Toolbar Buttons working again too (shown in the second image), but that will be a later request :)

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Comments on YouTube videos are no longer visible after Firefox version 115.10esr update. They do however work on my other computer which also has Firefox but not an esr version since it has a more current version of windows. I tried deleting all cookies and cache, starting in safe mode, disabling ad-blocking on YouTube but nothing worked. I'm thinking of rolling back to the previous update but would rather have this problem fixed.

Hello support,

is there any way (other than the one plugin I found that did not work for some reason) to adjust firefox' general brightness (or that of an individual tab) ?

Also changing my monitors brightness would not work for me as I am trying to test a website I develop (using firefox to visualize it) and it is rather just the large difference between my editor (which's brightness you can not adjust) and the browser that is very unpleasent when I switch back and forth (like when trying to fix a bug).

Kindest regards.

I'm using the OneTab add-on, Enabled. The icon no longer shows on the Toolbar, though it is on the Menu bar next to Firefox View.

I ran Remove and then Added it again, hoping the Toolbar Icon would reappear = no go, And I lost all URLs already saved, stupid me. To be clear, clicking the Icon on the Toolbar saves all open tabs.

Is there a fix via Preferences? Thanks. gw

hello everyone; i have a strange issue with my yubikey and firefox on redhat linux 8. (i can't upgrade to red hat 9 and it's technically oracle linux)

its works fine for the first x hours (where x is usually between 1 and 3 hours) and then firefox will invariably stop recognizing the yubikey touch. yubikey works with any other application in that journalctl shows that systemd is aware of it's existence when i plug/unplug it and i get a string in my terminal and text editors whenever i touch they key both before and after it stops working with firefox.

i've tried these things but the behavior is still the same: - regenerating my ~/.mozilla configuration directory - toggling all *webauth* keys in about:config - switching from yum to flatpak firefox installation - switching from gnome to kde to xfce - switching from Wayland to X11

there are no error messages; journalctl doesn't show any either; and chrome doesn't seem to have this problem, but i don't trust chrome and, interestingly, chrome exhibits the same behavior when using xfce.

the only thing that works reliability is rebooting each time it happens and, as you can imagine, that's 100% intrusive and i lose all momentum in my productivity.

here's details on my system:

Firefox version: 115.10.0esr (64-bit)

OS: Red Hat Enterprise Linux release 8.9 (Ootpa) Oracle Linux Server release 8.9 5.15.0-205.149.5.1.el8uek.x86_64

X Windows info: gnome-session-wayland-session.x86_64 3.28.1-21.0.1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-client.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-cursor.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-egl.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream libwayland-server.x86_64 1.21.0-1.el8 @AppStream qt5-qtwayland.x86_64 5.15.3-1.el8 @AppStream xorg-x11-server-Xwayland.x86_64 21.1.3-12.el8 @AppStream

I have support licensing from both Oracle and Yubikey and i've asked them for help and they both point the finger at each other so i'm stuck with this; any help would be appreciated!
