Hello,

In Windows 10 and 11, Firefox's tab bar and other elements that may be transparent render in Windows 10 using some sort of uDWM method (speculation, I could be wrong?) rather than the traditional win32 window frame as you can see with the title bar toggled on. This leads to elements like the tab bar being black or white, depending on your theme unless you have specified otherwise in your chrome. Highlighted yellow below is my problem area.


In my CSS code, I am trying to extend the system color to be drawn to the tab bar (and in this instance, the address bar as well,) but I can't find any way to be able to do this. I have found forums that say to add -moz:appearance -moz-windows-glass, but this completely removes the window border and leaves the Firefox window unresponsive to controls. The only way to close it is if you close it through the taskbar or task manager.


Note that I am aware of .titlebar-color{color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor}, but that's not what I am going for here. That still draws using Windows 10 modern UI. Windows 7 on ESR 115 or unofficially on 116 still draw with Windows Aero in all parts of this CSS code that are black (highligted yellow below.)


I can attach my CSS code if need be.


Thanks for any help!

I decided to try it out. I was exploring it, seeing if I could create a mask with a chosen name, and now it says I used up all my free masks.

Since that's the case,. can I still choose the one of those I unwittingly created? Maybe there should be some kind of disclaimer?

I am trying to download the original version of an image, not the re-compressed webp version (Yes, I know some websites only have a webp format image, but I am specifically talking about sites where I can flat out see .jpg or .png in the URL but it's forcing a recompressed webp version on me instead, reddit itself is one of those sites that does this, I cam flat out see the url ending in .jpg or .png, and then a lot of other gibberish after which if I make any changes to breaks the image, and if I leave as-is forces a webp version. Wikia sites are another that do this.). A lot of what I Google on how to do this is not relevant anymore, telling me to modify a setting that no longer exists, add a variable to the URL that no longer works, or install a plugin that does not seem to work anymore and might be a security risk.

The one thing that seems to work is going to the image.http.accept setting and putting in "*/*". Problem is, I have no idea what exactly this is doing, and it looks like to me that I am somehow telling it just allow everything, which worries me if it can be a security risk or something. Can someone help me understand what exactly I am doing when I modify this setting like this and if it's a security risk to do so?

I have a keyword, "ht", for the OED's historical thesaurus. Here is the keyword's URL: https://www.oed.com/search/dictionary/?scope=HistoricalThesaurus&q=%s&tl=true

But it exhibits very strange behavior. When I enter "ht test" in the address bar, it goes to https://www.oed.com/search/dictionary/?scope=HistoricalThesaurus&q=test&tl=true and (for some unknown reason) returns a 403 error. If I refresh with F5 and resend, I get the same error. However, if I simply Alt-D into the address bar and press Enter, it goes to the very same URL and returns the webpage as desired, with no 403 error.

Does anyone know what's going on, or how to make the keyword work properly from the beginning? Thank you!

How do I get rid of the purple home page in Private browsing that really defeats the purpose of private browsing when everyone can see this page pop up??? I have tried setting it to private only and I still get this page upon opening. I have searched the FAQs and tried all that they suggest (except for the one that suggests not using private browsing at all). this question and problem go back to at least 2019 it seems to me it should have been FIXED by now.

I took a video on a Google Pixel 7 mobile. It plays back on the Android cell properly. I can log into my Google Photos via my Windows 10 PC and the video will play back properly. I also downloaded the video file (MP4) to be saved directly in my Videos folder on my Windows 10 PC. When I try to play the video by clicking / opening the downloaded file on my PC I get an error message. See that message attached. It is prompting me to "download a new codec". Why? In my Firefox browser I currently have the Open H264 Video Codec by Cisco plugin enabled. Why is the Cisco plugin not sufficient? Is the Cisco plugin being updated? Does Firefox browser need to be updated? Is Is Firefox working on a fix?

Hello, I am wondering if there is any way to lock the toolbar so that it does not automatically pop up when you are in full screen mode and hover over the top area of the screen. I cannot easily play some browser games because they must be full screen and the toolbar popping up continuously interrupts the game.

To clarify, I do not want the toolbar to always be there; locking the toolbar so that it automatically shows when in full screen is not the solution I am looking for. I want the toolbar to disappear when I am in full screen and not popup when I hover over the top area of the screen.

Thank you for any help!

I've been using Chrome for a long time, and I've been slowly switching over all my bookmarks, passwords, etc to Firefox. I'm running Linux mint for context.

Every time I open Firefox, it opens the home tab, and after a second or two it opens Mozilla Rally in a new tab, and it drives me ABSOLUTELY BONKERS, because I get halfway through typing in a website, and I'm redirected to this new tab I care nothing about, and for some reason cannot get rid of it in the minimal startup settings that actually exist.

That's some straight up Microsoft Internet Explorer sh!t there, and yes that was meant as an insult.

I have not been able to find any reference or any way to make that not happen, and it is seriously making me consider abandoning Firefox entirely. Don't make me go back to Chrome.

Please help.

When I left-click on text and hold the left mouse button, then right-click, first release the right button, then the left button, a "selection mode" is activated, where the end of the selection follows the mouse pointer despite no button is held. In principle this looks like a useful feature (or it would if the scroll wheel worked in that mode, which it doesn't). But at the same time, the context menu opens when the right button is released. So we trigger two features at once, making both less useful, because they're getting in each other's way.

This frequently happens to me when double clicking on a word and right clicking to open the context menu on it. Accidental overlap of the left and right clicks triggers the selection mode.

Can this behaviour be configured (e.g. to use a custom shortcut) or, if not, be deactivated entirely?

I'm using Firefox 123.0.1 on Linux (openSUSE Tumbleweed).

I feel like I've been seeing people online complaining about this for a couple of years now, and it's shocking to me that I still couldn't find a solution in a thorough google search. Has anyone found a fix for the mandatory restart Firefox now pushes whenever there's an update available? Basically, out of nowhere, the program will refuse to open any new tabs or load any pages, instead giving the error message in the image. A restart is forced, and all private tabs are lost without warning. This is completely unacceptable browser behavior. As far as I know, there is no setting or about:config option that will fix this. Has anyone found a work-around?

I've been a loyal Firefox user for a couple of decades at this point, but this nonsense has me seriously considering switching to something else. Thanks for any help anyone can offer.
