Hi guys,

I don't know when and how exactly this thing was added to my firefox behind my back, I don't like it, I don't like Baidu Pan either but I have to use it.

I checked the extensions and add-ons, nothing suspicious was found.

Can you please help me remove it?

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

I use Last Pass for passwords & it's worked in the past on Firefox. After updating Firefox, the Last Pass extension in by toolbar is black - in the past I would click that, open the Last Pass page to sign in, then the icon turns red and functions. Now when I click the icon a frozen page comes up that never loads. I can sign in to the Last Pass webpage, but that doesn't turn on the extension.

Any advice appreciated - thanks!

I just copied a 'draft' that is single spaced, to a second T-Bird s/w program on another PC. But now now when I try to correct something in the 'draft', the new T-Bird adds m/t lines between the data lines. It's in the 'Double Space' mode! ! ! !

How do I get T-Bird back into the 'single space' mode? ? ?

Firefox mishandles action selected for opening files

I want to open online PDFs in Acrobat. I've modified the setting is in Firefox to "Always ask," yet when I click on a PDF it opens as it should AND Firefox automatically downloads the file to the Downloads folder even though that destination is greyed out in settings and the radial button for "Always Ask" is selected. How can I block this activity in either Firefox or in the registry.

NOTE: ALL OF THE SETTINGS IN FIREFOX SAY "ALWAYS ASK." This a software bug in Firefox, not a user switch setting. This activity began today (March 11, 2022) after months of normal, expected activity. I've reset Firefox and I've done a complete uninstall and clean install and this still happens.

Ad-filtering Firefox add-ons (uBlock Origin, AdBlock, etc.) are blocked in China on addons.mozilla.org

Firefox starts blocking uBlock Origin and other ad-blocking add-ons in China on addons.mozilla.org ?

Recently [1], some users reported that uBlock Origin [2], AdGuard AdBlocker [3], AdBlock For Firefox [4], and AdNauseam [5] were restricted from being accessed by users in mainland China.

When users in mainland China try to access the above ad-filtering add-ons on addons.mozilla.org, the website returns 451 Unavailable For Legal Reasons instead of the normal 200 OK response, and the body of the page states "This page is not available in your region".

The facts can be validated by reproducing the test results below.

By the way, this has nothing to do with China's "great firewall". This action of blocking was performed by Firefox in China. Firefox in China has a long history of arbitrarily blocking websites even for non-political or legal reasons and was found guilty by the Court in China back in 2018 for several such cases.

Sources and evidences: [1] According to Blocky's test logs, restricted access initially began no earlier than March 8, 2022 and no later than March 19, 2022. Users report: https://bgme.me/@bgme/107986773834355287

Testing results (by blocky.greatfire.org) Before: https://blocky.greatfire.org/api/url_test_result/18800410?format=ooni After: https://blocky.greatfire.org/api/url_test_result/18861443?format=ooni

The same testing results can be reproduced by testing the below URLs from a China mainland IP address or blocky.greatfire.org which uses multiple China mainland IP addresses in different cities.

Affected add-ons: [2] https://addons.mozilla.org/zh-CN/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ [3] https://addons.mozilla.org/zh-CN/firefox/addon/adguard-adblocker/ [4] https://addons.mozilla.org/zh-CN/firefox/addon/adblock-for-firefox/ [5] https://addons.mozilla.org/zh-CN/firefox/addon/adnauseam/

I have tried to change font-size, font-color and font family as default for the messages that i am sending in the preferences but it does not work.

So i tried creating two files 1 ) ~/.thunderbird/r4f28oqg.default-default/chrome/userContent.css

/* Body */ body { font-size: 12pt !important; color: #006FC9 !important; font-family:Arial, sans-serif !important; }

2) ~/.thunderbird/r4f28oqg.default-default/chrome/userChrome.css

/* Body */ body { font-size: 12pt !important; color: #006FC9 !important; font-family:Arial, sans-serif !important; }

I am not sure how it works, i just want my my fonts to be with these default settings when i type and they should be received with the same size, color at the receiving end.
