I hate surprises like these! So far i trusted FF that after an update my layout would still be intact as was, but no they forced this black sh.. onto me as a background for the home page - and no alternative anywhere to switch this back to white or any other options. Do i want to install a plugin for this simple basic option - hell no, i'd rather get rid of FF as my default browser if you think you can play dictators too now. What i miserable attitude you people have. If you change for life )white) to dead (black) you might as well declare you are on your way out as a browser - or offer the option to change that bg color real quick

I have a custom theme on Firefox called Charlies Red. Up until two days ago, Firefox would always consider it to be in light mode (which I prefer) whenever I'd use it. Now, however, it's in dark mode, and the only way I can return to light mode is to give up my custom theme and instead choose Light as a theme, which I don't like as much as Charlies Red.

Is there a way to force light mode on regardless of which theme I use? One source said I could go to about:config and create a ui.systemUsesDarkTheme number, setting it to 0, but I tried it to no avail and so deleted the number.

Hello, Just installed thunderbird the other day. Noticed today that I am missing a sent folder for the two accounts. I've spent a couple of hours now trying to figure it out (I am not techie at all). Following through the config options I thought I had it solved when at Message Storage > local directory > browse I'd find the missing piece. However, there is no sent item listed. Below this is Advanced POP settings yet I seem to not have that feature in my settings either. thanks,

I have read the same named question that has been archived and have not found a solution to my problem there. I'm using Macro Express to define my own keystrokes which works fine outside of FF. One of the keystrokes I have defined is Ctrl-Shift-k. A suggestion was to disable Developer Tools via about:config -> devtools.enable = false, but when I tried to use my definition of Ctrl-Shift-k, instead FF told me "You activated a Developer Tools shortcut. If that was a mistake, you can close this Tab." when in fact I wanted to have it invoke my own definition.

How can I override this (and other) keystrokes when using FF?

Until yesterday everything I customized for Firefox 89 in June of 2021 and FF 91 in August of 2021 was working fine.

Today I updated to Firefox 96.0 and when I open my Firefox returned to that old visual that I hated

tabs with spaces , but that's not the worst. The worst is the newTab visual that came back to the small and ugly bookmarks of the page we usually navigate. That are set on userContent.css I remember.

I checked some vars at about:config and everything is as it was.

So do I need to set true or false any new var there? These .css files are like they was never read. It looks like to me there is a new var, we need to change it.

What did happen?

The themes I use normally have white backgrounds and black text. Following an update, the default colour scheme changed from a white background to a black background for web pages without the theme being changed. Google, YouTube, and Firefox pages are all using black backgrounds. I ensured that the Dark theme was disabled, selected the Light theme, then switched back to the theme I had been using; the black background returned when I switched back to the theme I wanted to use. I tried changing the colour settings under "Language and Appearance: Fonts and Colours: Colours..." to white text and black background and back to black text and white background, but no change was noticed at any point.

How do I change the page background back to white?

PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item[container][label="Complete Tasks" i] {fill: #FF0000 !important;} PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item[container][label="Medical Coding" i] {fill: #FF0000 !important;} PlacesToolbarItems > .bookmark-item[container][label="Bodybuilding" i] {fill: #FF0000 !important;}

This isn't that important, but I was just experimenting to see if changing a few folder colors would be of any benefit to me. And the above code that I tried didn't work. I'm guessing that something changed with Mozilla Firefox in the last 1-1.5 years, and I have a feeling that if I dig into https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/CSS/Attribute_selectors for hours or even days I won't be able to figure out what I need to change. Anyone know what the new code should be? Thanks in advance.
