You still have the Personas Plus extension that may have this feature as well.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window or otherwise make changes.

you don't need an addon to display persona themes. just directly install a theme from https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/

If it works in Safe Mode and in normal mode with all extensions (Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) disabled then try to find which extension is causing it by enabling one extension at a time until the problem reappears.

Close and restart Firefox after each change via "Firefox > Exit" (Windows: Firefox/File > Exit; Mac: Firefox > Quit Firefox; Linux: Firefox/File > Quit)


You can also check for problems with preferences and rename or delete the prefs.js file and possible numbered prefs-##.js files and a possible user.js file to reset all prefs to the default value.

Note that this will remove all installed Personas, so you may want to bookmark its websites to be able to reinstall them.

Hi, it still changes even with all extensions disabled. i can not refer what the category (3rd from top) says in english, but it should be something like apearence the next one below the extention category, this still keeps loadig new themes and changing them.

Are you using the default theme?

Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be careful not to copy corrupted files.
