Some time ago, my colour scheme in Firefox changed. I spent hours getting it back to what I wanted. Recently, following a PC restart it happened again, now I can't recover my original Theme. Worse, 2 website's, ASDA & Tesco have changed colour to purple making it very difficult for my wife to read. It makes no difference to these websites whichever theme I set. When I open the same websites on Google Chrome, they appear normally. I have used Firefox for many years but now it gets ever more complicated making it more difficult to use. Often, if I need to update anything financial with suppliers, it fails to do so, then I have to switch to Google Chrome which works without any problems.

PS I tried to add images both by word doc. & PDF but clicking the 'Browse' button below could not find them in my explorer, they are there.

I know and admit I stuffed up.

One day a long time ago I was prompted for my master password.

When I clicked in that area/field a requester popped up asking me to pick a colour. Confused I picked one - and a bad one I now see.

So now when certain parts of a web page are opened the background colour is this horrible colour and I can't really read what is there.

I don't understand what I did or HOW I did it.

This is a cropped example of the bad contrast I am seeing.

As I said, I admit I stuffed up. But this seems to all have happened since that one time with the main password requester.

Hi,

This morning I logged into my Gmail using incognito mode and then closed the tab. Now when I visit Gmail inside incognito it logs me in immediately as if it saved all session information like cookies. I faced this issue first time on any browser and there is no mention of such issue elsewhere. I am on Version 96.0.1

Linux distribution: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS Firefox version: latest

I really, really need something to increase the size of all the icons in the toolbar. The size of the text is fine, but surprisingly the size of the icons is ridiculously small.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1260063

This thread does not help me, because for some reason the value '1.5' decreases the size, and the value '2' makes no difference at all.

A happy new year to everybody.

When my Google calendar loads in Firefox the reminder entries don't display by default. All other calendar entries such as appointments, birthdays, etc. display just fine. To make the reminders display, I have to click on the calendar main menu (the three lines) and check the box next to reminders. Then the reminders display fine. However, the next time I start Firefox the reminders once again don't display. Once I have the reminders set I save the settings, but that doesn't help. I don't have this issue with Edge or Chrome. Has anyone else run into this, and if so, have they been able to fix it? Richard

I have encountered a frustrating situation on several websites for quite some time now. I have tried to find out what is wrong but haven't been able to get an answer so I hope someone here can help me.

When I am on certain websites I am unable, for example, to watch a video or log in on a site if I decide to make a purchase. For instance, I receive channel 6ABCnews which I can read with no problem but if I want to watch one of their videos I have to switch to Chrome before it will play. Or I can look at items for sale on shopDisney but if I decide to buy something, I can't sign in unless I use Chrome. There is another online store that will let me see certain things (such as the return policy or how to order online) but it won't let me see their products unless I switch to Chrome. One last example has to do with my local newspaper. I can read the entire digital edition but if I try to place an ad (without ever leaving the site) I have to use Chrome. I attempted to upload images of the ad order form as it should look (when I use Chrome) and how it looks when using Firefox. Unfortunately, the Chrome image wouldn't upload.

Any suggestions as to what might be causing this? And is there anything I can do about it? I refuse to make Chrome my default browser which would appear to be the easiest solution.

Thank you!

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Ever since upgrading to windows 11 firefox developer edition will not work for me at all.

I have reinstalled it multiple times now and every single time its the same thing, after a fresh install I can open the browser and use it once to visit a single webpage and then it breaks forever:

  • - None of the tabs will load anything at all including any of the settings pages or debug/troubleshooting page (about:<page>) - its like it doesnt even attempt to load anything its completely unresponsive
  • - Clicking on any buttons in firefox/options menu do nothing
  • - If i close it i see between 2-10 firefox processes appear in my task manager which i have to go through and end each task before i am able to open the browser up again and even then that doesnt always work.
  • - Because it opens a bunch of processes when you close the browser and this prevents it from re-opening it is not possible to put it into troubleshooting mode
  • - Even after a fresh install (described below) after re-installing the browser it always opens for the first time with a message saying that 'I have reinstalled firefox would i like to refresh the browser' with a button to refresh - If i click this refresh button it instantly breaks it

In order to fix this I have to completely remove firefox from my machine including:

  • - Everything in my users folder
  • - Everything in program files/programdata
  • - Search my C:\ drive and remove all traces of mozilla/firefox i can find
  • - Clear all temp files
  • - Run a disk cleanup
  • - Restart my machine

Before i can attempt to install firefox again. If i dont do this after i reinstall it opens firefox up in exactly the same state it was in before i uninstalled it, same tabs open & completely unresponsive.

If you could please help me find a solution as i have been using firefox developer edition for work for years now and no other browsers compare.

Not for the first time, I suddenly cannot download any files in firefox (from PDFs to wetransfer links etc.). I have followed every bit of online advice there is. In troubleshoot mode I can download files. However by a process of elimination it is not caused by hardware acceleration, addons or extensions or my avast antivirus. This is really troublesome and I really need to download a lot for work. Performing a refresh every couple of weeks is not the solution.

This problem has been around for at least two years now.

Hi, I'm very lost as to why Firefox has suddenly starting crashing on me very frequently over the past 3 or so days, after Firefox's latest update. I first noticed it when I tried watching streams on Twitch, then I also noticed it on YouTube, and then when casually browsing Reddit. I've gone through all the troubleshooting steps:

  • I've made sure Windows is up to date
  • Firefox is up to date
  • My drivers are all up to date
  • There are no viruses/malware/any issues with my firewall settings and computer security, I've tested and checked everything
  • The crashes DO still happen in Troubleshooting Mode
  • I've checked my RAM using Windows Memory Diagnostic for errors and there are none
  • I've refreshed Firefox, I've cleared my cache, I've done an entire clean uninstall and reinstall of Firefox
  • I'm able to watch streams, videos, and browse Reddit just fine on my other devices and on Google Chrome. This is only an issue I'm encountering with Firefox, which is super disappointing because I've never had a single issue in the past several years I've been using it as my browser ):

I've submitted so many crash reports because it's been crashing so often, but here's the Report ID of the most recent: bp-0b0dac91-ec69-4c9e-a8c0-a622b0220116

I'm so confused and have no idea why this is happening. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
