The other articles about profiles, backups, recovery, '2017-10-13-12-36-19-82d39f.png',etc., ASSUMEs everyone has the same knowledge background.

When I try to use the find bar, it shows up black and won't search for text. It doesn't even say "phrase not found." I tried searching for words I knew were in the webpage and that I could see and it still wouldn't work. The quick search bar does the same. I tried restarting with add-ons disabled and nothing happened. I'm kind of at a loss at what to do.

Here's an image of the find bar if that helps any.

I'm running Firefox 62.0 on Linux. I'm using the Light theme, but the menu bar and drop down menus have suddenly changed to dark. How do I get them back to a light background with black text? btw - when it changed, I couldn't read the menus because they were black text on black background. After trying a variety of themes, which didn't affect the menus, somehow they changed to black background with white text, so I can at least read them.

Having some trouble with Firefox and I'm at my wits end on how to fix it. Clicking the Firefox icon in Windows 10 (whether that's in the Start menu, the taskbar or the app itself in Program Files) won't launch Firefox. The blue loading spinner appears briefly next to the pointer, then disappears. Sometimes a Firefox process appears in Task Manager then instantly disappears, but sometimes it doesn't. Here's what I've tried so far:

- Restarting - Reinstalling - Deleting my Firefox profile and all Firefox app files - Launching in safe mode by holding shift - Launching in safe mode by adding the "-safe-mode" comment - Running as administrator - Checking it's not being blocked by antivirus - Loading the Firefox profile manager by typing "firefox.exe -P" in the run dialog box. This does the same as trying to load Firefox - nothing happens

I can't think what else to do. It may be a coincidence, but my primary monitor died, I restarted the PC and then Firefox wouldn't work. I can't see how it could be related, but who knows.

Anyway, any help would be greatly appreciated!

Every now and then, I get the 'Firefox Red Screen of Caution' about the site I'm attempting to visit. It's shown as a Deceptive Site, and I'm urged to NOT visit it. One option open to me is to 'Ignore Warning' and proceed. This works most of the time, but occasionally even clicking that option does not allow me to bypass Firefox's well-intentioned blockade and have to use an alternative browser. How do I deal with this otherwise?
