Hello there!

I was browsing some website but suddenly a popup appeared that I need to update Firefox that was up to date. (That was my second time seeing the same site, so I was careful not to click on yes.)

I thought it was a click bait or virus, so I didn't click on it and I wasn't even able to exit that tab. That tab even opened the 'color picker' application and started running a code by itself.

I could see an extension install by itself. I panicked and shut down my computer.

After a while when I started the computer again, I couldn't find any new extension installed but I remember it was there. ;-;

A few days later (today), all of my websites started glitching! I don't know what to do. T_T

Also if there's an only option which is to refresh, I actually don't want to lose my Firefox data so I can't do that. Is there any other way to get rid of that thing?

To put some screenshots, I tried to use another web browser which I could clear the data of. But it didn't work in that.

This is the link which mentioned some 'Update.FF' (I am not sure if it's the correct one, but please do not click on it.)

**If you do click on it, it'll just refresh the page or something but the previous link which I saw, doesn't open**

https://www-ssl.com/app/?ref=6&web=zp&co=IN&dd=ee67f683db1226519417d5525d328dfa&pa=melichrous-badger&cid=zredca1df561f511eb9d0d0a59b83f3f116c17d68f2b074c768485b8929596500e0532856c6a18cb5fc6&country=IN

Please help!!

Currently running Firefox 85.0, Prior release was 82.0 (screwed up print preview issues caused major headaches there.) What happened to the "Page Setup..." dialog? It has disappeared from the "File" sub-menu. It isn't in the "Options" section either. How is one supposed to change headers, footers, margins, and other such particulars that were commonly found in the "Page Setup" dialogs of desktop applications? Couple this with the loss of the previous print preview capability, and I am thinking I need to find a different browser. Doesn't Mozilla have a change review process in place to prevent such major mishaps?

Hello, There is one website that I visit regularly that doesn't show images anymore in Firefox. On the top left of the page I see a torn sheet of paper icon. The images are visible in Safari. I have tried suggestions on the FF help page but that doesn't help.

Is it caused by the website owners or a problem on my side?

The setting "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" is on. Not sure if it is default or if I set it - but it is on on all my devices.

So far I like the idea of deleting cookies. But it is annoying that each time I open a website it asks me which cookies I want to allow.

Is there a way to keep my cookie preferences for sites but delete / forbid all further writing ???

I recently had to hard reset my laptop. I have been unable to restore my bookmarks. I do NOT have the "restore" option in the other bookmarks section of the library. I do NOT have that option in the tools section. I looked at about:profile. I started to launch an other profile but Firefox is not offered as a choice for importing bookmarks.

Hello,

I am trying to create a custom userChrome.css for Firefox 85 to fix the poor contrast of text on inactive tabs on KDE Plasma with the Breeze colour scheme.

I want the text of an inactive tab on the active window to be the colour white.

I want the text of an inactive tab on an inactive window to be the colour black.

I tried the following in userChrome.css:

.tabbrowser-tab:not([selected="true"]) .tab-text {

 color:white !important;

}

.tabbrowser-tab:not([selected="true"]) .tab-text2 {

 color:black !important;

}

The first block of CSS works and I get white correctly on an inactive tab on an active window. The second block of CSS does not work and I do not get black text on an inactive tab on an inactive window.

I used "tab-text2" because it was described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1017404

Has "tab-text2" been deprecated and replaced with something else in newer versions of Firefox? How do I specify the tab text colours for an inactive window?

Thanks.

3 February 2021

I use a toolbar. Sorry, I'm old fashioned. When I install a new linux system, the first thing I do is change firefox to show the toolbar. There is a 'Bookmarks' item on the toolbar. When you click it, it gives you a menu of several options, including 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D'.

Until recently, clicking on that option opened a popup that allowed you to select a sub-folder to put the bookmark in. That was extremely useful because a flat list gets very long very quickly. You could of course just click on save bookmark in the popup and it gets added to the flat list, or, as I do, you could first select a sub-folder.

Now, clicking 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D' results in the bookmark immediately being saved to the flat list and a little alert momentarily pops up declaring 'saved to library'. Apparently 'library' is the same as 'other bookmarks'. How very clear (sarcasm). In addition to not knowing where the bookmark actually is, I now have to manually move it to the desired sub-folder with several other clicks. How convenient (sarcasm).

I want the old behavior back. How do I get it?

By the way, I am very old fashioned. I don't register with websites, even firefox. I used an email blackhole to sign up. I will come back here periodically (once a day) to see if there are any useful answers or questions asking for clarification. I've bookmarked this page, so it should be easy. When I'm done, I'll disappear forever, thank you very much.

So, I have a bad habit of keeping pages open in my browser and letting them accumulate in order to read them at a later date. Bad habit, I know. But, when going through and closing old tabs I no longer need, I noticed that the undo close tab button doesn't actually undo the tab you just closed. Instead of re-opening the tab you most recently closed, it re-opens whichever tab you closed recently which most recently *opened*. For example - say I have seven tabs open, with tab one being on the left/opened first, and tab seven being on the right/opened most recently. If I close tab seven and then close tab two, and then I click the undo close tab button, tab seven will be the one to be re-opened, even though it was closed before I closed tab two. Likewise, the tabs on the far left won't show up under recently closed tabs if there are tabs further to the right that were closed, even if they were closed before the tabs on the left.

I discovered this while clearing out tabs I had open. I closed several tabs on the right/most-recent, and then went to the left/oldest tabs and started closing those. I realized after opening a tab that I still kind of needed that page for other things. However, when I went to undo close tab, the tab that opened wasn't the tab I had just closed, it was one of the tabs I had closed several minutes prior that were on the right/most-recent side of the page. The tab which I closed on accident was nowhere to be found in my history.

I found questions regarding why the default built-in startpage is not conforming to the system theme.

https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1286932#answer-1312559 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1316562

The problem is, my startpage still doesn't change to darkmode. All my about:* like settings, plugin and 'blank page' however does change with the system theme. Web pages like google also reacts fine to the change.

I can customize it, but I'd prefer for this to work on 'clean installs' as well :)
