I'd like to add Firefox to Adobe Dreamweaver for site design viewing. When searching Windows for Firefox.exe I don't see it in Program Files or Program Files (x86). Firefox is installed and used daily. Can someone tell me where it's located in Windows 10?

It seems that Thunderbird follows the Windows 10 settings and installs Dark mode, making the emails/messages unreadable. From what I've read, the only way to correct that is to set Windows in Light mode, which is not always suitable.

It would be nice if Thunderbird had it's own Light/Dark mode feature, allowing the users to select which mode they prefer.

Any thoughts/suggestions on the matter?

Currently, I'm using Firefox 82.0.2 on Fedora 31. Recently, it's started opening most, but not all links in a new window instead of the current one. Not on all sites, but most. As a pair of examples, it opens links to articles on gasbuddy.com in a new window but not on Slashdot, and until a few months ago, it only opened a new window if I right-clicked and selected New Window from the context menu. I'd like to get the old behavior back, as this is quite inconvenient.

I just updated to 95.0. I use default Firefox home page with the Search bar. The background turned to black with this update. The background has also turned to black for some of my bookmarks or sites I go to. Settings, Language and Appearance, Colors, Text is Black and Background is White. I have never changed that. How do I get the background back to White?

A recent Firefox update has totally disrupted our ability to print from browser windows. There used to be a "Print Preview" button that allowed us to set things up the way we wanted them. That's now missing. As a result, stuff that used to cost us for ten pages now costs us for twenty pages. Also, when we print double-sided, the second side prints upside down.

This strikes me and my wife as a horrible development, and we would like to go back to the old version ASAP!

Hello!

I used to be able to open a file (with a program) without it being saved. Ever since 98.0, the "open" option saves the file regardless. I even had to find a work around to get the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt.

Is this no longer possible?

Thanks.

I have noticed a new folder has appeared on my desktop - out of the blue - labelled "STG-backups-FF-81.0.1" If I delete it, it is simply replaced by another one at some point, later on. I assume this folder is created by Firefox and the back-up file information is saved in it automatically. Surely the folder should be in a different location? Has anyone any ideas on where this is supposed to be, and how to get Firefox to revert to saving the files in it in the correct place?

I am in Windows 7, 64-bit. All of a sudden all of my Firefox logins and passwords are missing. I read several threads about this, which told me to check the "Old Firefox Data" folder on my desktop for the logins.json file. However, the only information in that folder is from 2018, two full years ago. Where did my logins and passwords from yesterday go?

Also, I just updated to version 80.0.1, hoping to get my passwords and logins back, but they are sill missing. The problem just occurred today, before I updated from version 79-something.

Thank you for any help you can give. This is extremely upsetting.

Thunderbird was working fine for a number of years, and then out of the blue I get this error message when I try to send e-mail: The Mail Server responded 554 5.7.1 (P4) Message Blocked due to Spam Content in the Message.

Nothing has changed...no additions or changes to my Thunderbird e-mail. These are one on one e-mails I'm trying to send...no group mailings. My carrier is RCN and I can send e-mail from my RCN webmail address. I can receive mail with no trouble. RCN claims it's not their issue. BUT.....I also have a Samsung Galaxy 7 phone with an ANDROID OS. I get a similar error message on my RCN e-mail account on the phone. Two totally separate devices....different OS....but same problem. I have changed nothing on the phone...heck I can hardly figure out how to answer an incoming call let alone mess around with e-mail settings. I have two other e-mail accounts on the same desk top computer and phone that both work fine...one is a Yahoo account, and one is a Verizon account. I'm not a high level tech with these devices...please make suggested remedies as simple as possible. Thanks very much....Bob

I am building a website and, for the last couple of days, when I make changes to the CSS file they are no longer being picked up by the browser by which I mean they aren't displayed in the web page nor in the developer tools inspector.

They are visible in Chromium browser and dev tools.

I have cleared the cache and refreshed the page to no avail. It is only when I restart the browser that the new style rules take effect in the browser and show up in the dev tools.

Hi,

I have several Gmail accounts. I have been using Thunderbird for many years. POP3 I keep everything on my Desktop. I just got this from Google and I'm at a loss. Anyone have any idea if or how it will affect Thunderbird's login?

Google On May 30, you may lose access to apps that are using less secure sign-in technology ??????@gmail.com To help keep your account secure, Google will no longer support the use of third-party apps or devices which ask you to sign in to your Google Account (Link to my account) using only your username and password. Instead, you’ll need to sign in using Sign in with Google or other more secure technologies, like OAuth 2.0.

What do you need to do?

While playing one of those free poker games there seems to be excessive RAM memory usage. Nothing else running which can account for it. Also, it shows several Firefox processes while, again, there's only one tab open.

The reason I noticed is that the game which usually runs smoothly began to be choppy/jerky, so I opened Task Manager to have a look. Note: Didn't investigate internet connection speed.

Why is Firefox using so much memory and slowing things down?

I cannot get Firefox to go completely into full screen on Mac OS Catalina. When going full screen it will hide the Mac system menu bar at the top, but it will not hide the Firefox address bar. I've researched a bit and found some suggestions about settings in about:config pertaining to full screen access, and I've exhausted all of those suggestions. Is this a known issue on Mac with Firefox?
