I refreshed my Firefox and settings I liked are gone. Background color of menu bar is too dark. border on firefox window is gone. How do I get these back?

Posted

This "refresh" of Firefox seems to make it more like Chrome, which I dispise. The backgroun of the menu is too dark to see clearly and the borders are gone. This makes the window hard to move and/or resize. Also, it just look sloppy in my humble opinion. I don't like the move to less information on the page with more scrolling.

To avoid the soap box, I just want to get the menu and borders back to the lighter, more visible color.

Is this possible?

Thank you.

To add some detail to my question. There is also a folder on my desktop called "Old Firefox" created by malwarebytes, the application I used to get myself into this mess. It has what looks like all of my old firefox set up data.

Is this something that I should be trying to back out? Should I uninstall and reinstall firefox altogether?

Refreshing Firefox {web link} is a LAST RESORT ! !

Refreshing Firefox -- easily fix most problems

If you're having problems with Firefox, refreshing it can help. The refresh feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks and open tabs. Everything else, like user settings and add-ons, are removed.


Look on your desktop. Do you see a folder called; Old Firefox? Look inside. Look for the folder with the latest creation date.

Thank you FredMcD. You have helped me tremendously. There is a folder on my desktop labeled "Old Firefox Data". Together with the links you sent me, that folder contains everything I want to retrieve.
