Firefox Color "New Tab Background Color" reverts to black when theme is changed.

If I'm using "Blue Theme by Valou" and then change the "New Tab Background Color" to a light blue (#b7dff0), the theme changes (when I don't want it to) and the "New Tab Background Color" does indeed change to light blue. Unfortunately, when I re-select "Blue Theme by Valou" by disabling the unwanted theme and enabling "Blue Theme by Valou", the new tab background color reverts to a default slate (nearly black) color -- the light blue background is no longer honored when I open a new tab.

Please let me know if you need more information.

When opening the browser for the first time, my opened (saved) tabs begin to load and then pause as though my entire internet connection is lost. Some will time out, others will just sit there. If I try to go to a new website, I get a connection error that says I have no connection to the internet. This only happens in FF; my other programs are not effected by the drop in connection and the Windows connection manager shows that I'm live the whole time. The connection resumes and all goes back to normal between 20-60 seconds after the initial drop.

This only happens when opening the application for the first time after a reboot but doesn't matter if I just started Windows or wait 5 minutes to open FF. What is going on here? I've been using FF on this computer for 2 years with no issue like this. The issue has remained after a full format/wipe of the Windows 10 and clean slate install of FF.

I am very concerned about a proxy or some kind of man in the middle switch being flipped. It's the same pause in network access that I get when enabling a VPN service. As a note, I do not have a VPN installed at this time.

Any help or advice is welcomed, thank you.

I have today commissioned a new HP laptop running Windows 10.

I have downloaded Firefox and done a straightforward installation. I have viewed a couple of web pages but notice that when right clicking there is no longer a screenshot facility in the little menu box that appears. Trying Control + Shift + S does not work either.

I am writing this using Firefox 93.0 for Linux Mint on an old Toshiba Satellite and I have the facility - both right click and keyboard.

Has the facility been discontinued in the later version?

Many thanks in advance

Hi I know you can just click on a tab and drag it to the left or right to sort out order etc. But I recall in the past, or maybe it was a different browser I'm not sure, but the little down arrow at the top left of the firefox browser that drops down a list of your opened tabs, I recall being able to click on one and move it up and down which is much quicker and easier. Maybe its the bookmarks I'm thinking of that lets you do this. But yes, is there a way to move tabs up and down in that window, or any extentions out there that enable such a feature. Thanks for the help.

I use FF 93.0 on Linux Mint. Sometimes I click on a link and it leads to a PDF file. It then downloads the file, makes hardly any sign that it completed and just sits there. On another computer of mine, FF downloads the file, opens the PDF viewer but does not activate the PDF viewer window.

How can I specify a default PDF viewer such that it always opens the PDF in the specified viewer and for other odd files, it asks me what program to use?

Ever since I updated, typing has become incredibly challenging... There's big delays in the words showing up, letters come out in the wrong places, & it doesn't improve even when I clear cache, clear memory, & refresh pages. I don't know what else to do. Should I delete and re-install Firefox, or replace this with the previous version?

Hello. Starting yesterday, Firefox has stopped playing audio from every website and even local files. Yes, I read this article and no, the sound is not being muted instead the sound just refuses to play. In the screenshot, it shows that the "play" "mute" and speed option are greyed out. Also, I tried using safe mode and audio still wouldn't play. What should I do?

When entering credit card info in a web form, Firefox will pop up a dialog asking if I'd like to save the card info. If I click yes, the dialog closes but the info is not saved. If I go into settings where one can view the saved cards and enter the info to save a new one, I can enter one but again it does not actually save. There is no error, it just doesn't save. Tailing journalctl shows no errors, and launching Firefox from a console and watching the output doesn't show any error either.

It's been this way over several updates over the course of a few months (as long as I've been using Firefox on this computer).
