For the last several FF versions, although I choose a light theme, the pull downs/menus always wind up dark with white text. It also shows up when I am editing options in FF itself. How do I stop this? I want a light background with black/dark text.

Why, with not very many active open windows, and just after opening, is FF using 175% of my CPU, not counting all the separate listings in my Activity Monitor. Plus it's using nearly all 16 GBs of my RAM. With every new update, I pray it will mean the browser will just work, and not use up all my computer's resources, but it just never does. Pretty soon, more & more of us will just give up on this browser, which used to work better, years ago, and has only gone downhill since.

Win 7 Home Premium Firefox Version 101.0.1

'Privacy & Security'->'Cookies and Site Data', 'Clear Data.'

When 'Clear Now,' Cached Web Content; is clicked, it does not zero out. (It used to clear completely).

The browser webpage has been refreshed, the browser closed and reopened, and the computer restarted but the cache does not reset.

This issue started on the morning (Pacific time) of June 26-Is this a known glitch or am I missing a detail?

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

I have this problem. It just showed up after installing a brand new ARRIS modem exactly like the one I had. "Your connection is not secure" error when trying to log in to my modem's login page at the local address. There are several fixes that I saw, none seem to help. Tried the SSL refresh and it screwed up the browser. Now I get to figure out how I had it set up before the "refresh". Like I said this just started in Firefox and it prevents me from accessing the modem console period. If I use Edge it does not block me. (yuk) It does show a "Not Secure" message in the address bar but it will allow me to access my Modem. Why cant we get a fix for this. Its a local web address not on the internet. Should be a way to add to a allow local address list and ignore certificates or whatever else is causing it to block access.....

Email me when someone answers the thread seems to be broken on this page. I would like a email please so I can find a response.

After doing an update to Firefox (currently on 102.0.1), the settings for what happens when I click on a PDF file always seems to reset to 'save file', when what I want (and what I have to keep changing back to) is 'Always ask'.

Is this a known issue or is it something about my environment that causes this?

My system is running Windows 11 on an HP laptop with an AMD 7-5800U CPU and 8Gb of memory. [I'm posting this on my desktop machine which doesn't seem to exhibit the same behaviour - Windows 10 on an Intel 8500 CPU and 16Gb of memory]

thanks for any advice.

Even though I have the "allow websites to choose their own fonts" box checked, some websites (Google and others) display fonts as all question marks. This doesn't happen all the time...just sometimes. And sometimes restarting the computer helps. I prefer using Firefox but I noticed it doesn't happen in Safari. I have OS 12.4 and am using Firefox 103.0.2. Thanks for any advice!

The relatively new computer (running Windows 10) used by a non-admin person keeps asking for admin permission every time there's a firefox update. I have several other workstations with firefox and none of those ask for admin rights to be able to update. No solution found in several internet searches for this problem. I'm about ready to put Chrome on this person's computer so I don't have to go to his desk & enter my admin credentials for just a damn FF update.

No bookmark sync app. Actually there is. But because of the following problem. It's like nothing.

1 Firefox login bookmarks. Unable to load old bookmarks Or it can't be overwritten and you can't pick and choose to sync. I can't give the bookmark a name. For example, save the name win10 on 07/08/22. List. If a bookmark is broken, it cannot be fixed. Or, it may not be synchronized with Linux and Windows. then My bookmarks are blank. state of nothing This is the problem with Firefox default login bookmarks.

2 I Clear Browsing Data https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/clear-browsing-data/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=featured I use this bookmark. then.

3 Bookmarks created by individuals https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/syncmarx/?src=search syncmarx

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fvd-synchronizer/?utm_source=addons.mozilla.org&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=search EverSync Bookmarks This bookmark login will be canceled and all data will be lost. So I tried contacting the developer. No answers.

These were the problems I was facing right now.

I'm saving bookmarks manually so it's very dangerous and inconvenient. There are many cases where I forgot to save by my mistake.

thank you. I hope it improves.

Ah, Clear Browsing Data, other additional functions work normally even if you use this.


This story has nothing to do with Firefox. Because it is a problem caused by an add-on created by an individual I am aware of it too. But there is no place for me to complain.

Good morning:

I updated FF 91 ESR to 102 ESR and I'm not liking the Print interface. The main problem is that the printer properties are not available. The printers default is to print from tray 2, but sometimes I want to print from tray 1.

If it can be changed then I prefer code that I add to User.js "user_pref("print.tab_modal.enabled", false); " is being ignored.

Typically, when you right-click on a field or link or basically anywhere in a webpage the list of options appears or pops up at the point of the cursor. However, for some time now they all appear in the upper left corner of the Firefox browser.

In the screenshot attached, I performed the right-click from the "Find help..." field. But the list is in the upper left corner. The list appears there regardless of where I right-click on a webpage.

Is there a way to fix this so they appear at the point of the cursor?
