Google image searches shows only as the colour I have selected as my background when I try to look for something. In Google Sheets, Docs, and Maps the selected background colour also overpowers/overwrites the colour preview pop-up when changing the colour of text, highlights, or pins. Returning to default colours or changing "Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above" from "Always" (which makes it so I can actually see my selected colours) makes the issue occur. I have tried refreshing Firefox and changing the colours again to no avail. The issue occurs again.

My system: macOS High Sierra version 10.13.6

A few days ago there was an download message from Firefox to upgrade the browser. It does not work on my mac and I have deleted Firefox. [Safari sucks rotten eggs through a bent straw] Been using Firefox since the 80's or 90's. Felt really comfortable. Used it to teach myself HTML.

I don't know what version I had, but it worked. I cannot afford the data loss and cost which I cannot afford to upgrade my OS.

Is there any way I can download an older copy of Firefox that matches/works on my system? I miss my old friend.

Thanks. Spike

While upgrading my FF from 56.0 to the newest, I found 792 empty text files labelled "serviceworker-xxx.txt" in my profile directory. What caused this? I'm thinking it may be related to pingfinder.exe that tries to run whenever I close the browser. I have that blocked in ZoneAlarm, but it always seems to auto-generate a new temp name/location. What is "pingfinder" and can it be renamed/deleted?

I just installed firefox on a computer using win 10, and for whatever reasons teh fonts are all messed up, some show as intended, others dont.

I have tried various fixes on here like changing the performance settings, sandbox security, refresh and fonts too.

None of these worked, see image attached showing what i have, Default font was Times New Roman, changed it to Arial,Verdana and calibri, none made a difference.

Some help would be appreciated.

Radar data has stopped displaying on the WeatherUnderground and Accuweather websites (it displays fine on Chrome). When I start the browser in safe mode, the data displays, but that's the only way I can get it to display--disabling all plug-ins, extensions and themes doesn't work. I've tried everything--I've reinstalled Firefox, I've created another profile (with no extensions or themes), refreshed the new profile, and still it won't display. However, when I start the new, bare profile in safe mode, the data displays! Any ideas?

Hi. Since the last update of Firefox, the Languages item on the right-click menu has disappeared and I don't know how to swap between languages for spell checking any more (the explanation on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?). I find where to change the display language of menus and commands in the Options, but not where to switch between spell-check dictionaries. So I have menus in Portuguese and spell-check fixed on English... Can you help, please? Thanks.

Hi all, After use the Firefox on a secondary large screen, when opening on the laptop screen, it doesn't fit automatically and we see a large blank screen. After we need to move down and resize it to fit. Is it possible to resize automatically or at least align to the top of the screen, when Firefox window size is larger than the screen size? That's only a suggestion, i don't know if I'm doing it on the correct forum. Thanks and keep safe.

Firefox insists on opening files from local temp dir, discarding URLs

My question is a blend of these two previous questions:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1303566 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1277388

I have a bunch of open tabs which used to simply contain pdf documents, opened in the Firefor pdf viewer, with the file URL in the address bar rather than a local temp dir address. This behaviour however changed with a recent update (I'm on 82.0b5), and now when I reload those old tabs, I get prompted for a download, and a new tab is opened following the download with a local temp dir replacing the URL. As all these files previously opened just fine in the FF preview with the URL present, this is unlikely to be related to whether the server sends files as "application/pdf" or otherwise, as the same files have changed behaviour, and it is unlikely that a bunch of servers changed the way they send files at the same time.

Further, the answer to the second question above proposed to select "Preview in Firefox" to get around this, however this option doesn't seem to exist anymore.

Is this a known behaviour change in FF82? If so, is there a way to get the old behaviour back?

I've exported/imported firefox settings before (bookmarks, etc) but this time I didn't get a chance to export before my computer blew up. So when I logged on to Firefox on my new computer, I didn't have my password. It forced me to reset my password....but then none of my bookmarks transferred over. I thought they would be tied to my login and I could still recover them without the files from my old hard drive. That doesn't seem right to me, what am I missing? How do I recover the bookmarks saved on my Firefox login? I had soooo many....

thanks in advance!

If i do the same speed test with another browser, i get 900 MB download and 100 Mb upload. So , how do i configure Firefox in order to get same values than Edge and Chrome browsers? I understand it might has to be with some parameters in about:config . Could you give me some light on this? Thanks
