Websites frequently pop up a message telling me to approve their use of cookies. If I decline, many times the web page becomes inaccessible.

If I ‘Accept’, does that circumvent my Firefox settings for cookies, either by changing the settings or by putting the website on an ‘Exceptions’ list? Or can I rely on my Firefox settings being unchanged and enforced even if I click ‘Accept’?

Sample popup: “We use cookies to improve user experience, personalize advertisements, and analyze website traffic. For these reasons, we may share your site usage data with our social media, advertising, and analytics partners. By clicking ‘Accept’, you agree to our website’s cookie use as described in our Cookie Policy. You can change your cookie settings at any time by clicking ‘Preferences’.”

The buttons are ‘Preferences’, ‘Decline’, and ‘Accept’.

Thanks.

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

I have read the same named question that has been archived and have not found a solution to my problem there.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?

Firefox 96 broke iCloud 2FA 95.0.2 still works

I have two computers, a desktop and a laptop. A few days ago FF auto updated to 96.0 on the desktop. The laptop is still at 95.0.2 (thankfully I turned auto update off on that one.)

Now iCloud 2FA does not work on the desktop with FF 96.0.0. The six digit code is correctly sent to my iPhone but on the website in the browser, the 6 character box for entry does not appear and the error message is "Failed to verify your identity. Try again." See attached screen shot.

I disabled HTTP3 but this did nothing.

Version 95.0.2 works fine and I am able to logon to iCloud on.

As you know, there is no way to rollback FF. I do not want reinstall the old version and have to create another profile and lose all my settings!

Please confirm. Now I have to use Chrome on my desktop as the work around which I really don't want to do.

Thank you, Scott Keller

After updating to Firefox 96, when ever I try to log in to my Wowway email, a new tab opens with only the message "please wait while we are logging you in" and never logs in. I did a new install of Windows 10 on my desktop and used Firefox 95.0.2 and the problem went away, but on my laptop using Firefox 96 it still does it. I have tried Internet Explorer (but not any other browsers) and have no problem signing in. I see that others have this problem too and I tried the solutions that others have posted but none work.

Firefox glitched last night and I had to reinstall it. In the process, I've lost everything. I have an "old data" folder on my desktop, but no matter how many times I import it, none of my old stuff shows in Firefox. It also stalls on files and says the names are too long. This is all complicated by the fact that I am almost blind. I am desperate for help as most of my site passwords were generated by firefox so I don't have a single clue what they are. Bookmarks are all gone. I'm literally crying. Please help.

Things I've already tried: Import old data by copy/paste method. Repeatedly. Replace sqite files for passwords, sessions, etc.

Hi, I know this already Faqs about this problems: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-cant-load-websites-other-browsers-can But the things is, it's not works at all. Even it could, it only for few minutes and the problems keeps appears. And oddly, If you ignore it for several minutes or an hour, Firefox suddenly can open websites again. This problems keep appears in my 2 laptop. I already try anything including reinstall firefox, and it's just temporal solutions. Can you check what actually happened? Cause this problems not only me but also the other users. I already ask my colleague and my friend, they have same problems, and the solution you give isn't working at all. Thank you.

Hello! After updating FF to newest version I noticed that every site use a dark mode by default. I am using Stylus Blue by Thamyris, so far I had no problems with it.

Now sites like twitter or google shows in dark mode when I am entering the page. I can change it by changing motive to something light in FF, but I want to use my theme AND have white colours by default.

I cannot change twitter colours in the menu because I do not have account there and I do not want one. I think I could change something in the about:config but have no idea what.

Also reaching page to ask question is pain in the ***.

Kind regards

Update to version 96 64-bit just completed. Many websites now experiencing Secure Connection Failed PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR. Did Help -> More Troubleshooting Information -> Refresh Firefox to go back to all defaults. Open Firefox again, add Menu Bar. Open what used to be home screen tabs, ok at first, but within minutes start experiencing Secure Connection Failed in several websites. Seems to come and go, sometimes a Reload current page restores normal website, sometimes not. Close Firefox, open again, restore previous session tabs, only a matter to time before one or more start getting Secure Connection Failed errors. No extensions, no themes. Browser is now so unreliable as to be unusable. Please assist.
