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 Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following message: It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.

Suddenly the backgrounds to many Firefox screens - browser, history, settings - changed from white to black. This makes it very difficult for me to read whats on these screens. How do I change them back to white?

The browser screen was black and I did that "about:config" thing and toggled the "browser.proton.enabled" to False which converted the background of the browser to back to white but all the other drop down menus are still black. The bookmark toolbar menu is black, the background of the hamburger menu is black, and the "customize menu" background is black. These areas are now difficult for me to see.

When FF developers start fooling around with colors in the FF browser they need to tread lightly and be aware of all accessibility problems their users may have. Where accessibility is concerned, one size doesn't fit all. Some people have problems with white backgrounds and others, like myself, have problems reading screens with black backgrounds. One simply MUST be aware of sight problems in users.

P.S. I tried uploading photos of the black backgrounds in question but the upload wheel just kept spinning. The photo size was within accepted parameter. Also, I tried to check the box "Email me when someone answers the thread" but that wouldnt work either.

Cannot bypass "Secure Connection Failed" when access an internal corporate device

Hi, We currently connect to a vendor devices admin page that is inaccessible via Firefox because of the following error "Secure Connection Failed" (Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE) and won't present the option to proceed via the "Advanced" option. Long story.... The vendor is aware of the issue and as the configuration page is always accessed internally and uses TLS in some form they do not want to allow us to make any changes to uploading our own certs.

Anyway recently I was made aware of a keyboard shortcut to force firefox to bypass the error screen and force a connection, however I have not been able to find it since on the Shortcut guide for firefox. Can anyone provide me with this shortcut, It will save having to switch between multiple browsers.

Thanks is Advance,

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.

Suddenly and while Firefox was open I lost access to Reddit, all it now shows is a black page with the word "Blocked" in it. I've disabled addons, tried a Private Window and am about to do a cache flush. I'm not banned from Reddit, I can still log in on Edge and on Android apps no problem and Reddit seems to be the only page that is having this issue. There doesn't seem to be a ban or block list in Firefox that I can find, I'm at a loss as to why this has suddenly happened.

I'm very sorry if it comes off as hostile. It's actually kind of out of fear that one day it will all break down.

As person on autistic spectrum I really need ability to maintain pleasant-to-eyes user layout. Even before the Quantum updates Firefox moved from pretty much perfect-looking browser to worse and worse (kinda Chrome-looking) one. That's why UserCss was a godsend.

http://prntscr.com/26cyw7p

But every few updates stuff breaks and I have to download yet another updated version of custom CSS, and often at least one option I am using actively is no longer available because firefox update broke it for good. Today was such day - after Firefox updated, suddenly tabs were way too high, extending into favorites tabs. After updating and reconfiguring (since config files are different with each iteration), four more customization options gone in between last and current CSS update.

I understand going forward and such, but if the visuals peaked in 2007, why not keep all the CSS working properly when doing so? Just do not remove old calls and such?

Recently I've noticed that two websites that I accessed with my Firefox browser now show up as blank pages although I can access the same websites in my Microsoft Edge browser. The websites are:

https://niksharma.bulletin.com/kimchi-lentil-soup/?source=email

https://doriegreenspan.bulletin.com/pastry-in-paris/

I've removed and re-added Firefox from my Microsoft Defender firewall with no effect.

I can still access all of the other websites I visit with my Firefox browser.

What is the problem and what can I do about it?

Hi I would like the screen that has the images of my most used websites to always open to this page when a new Firefox is opened. Currently when I open the first Firefox I get what I setup. Then if I open another one it is blank. How can I get the same home screen to open for as many Firefox as I open? thanks Jackie. Note: Firefox is my browser so I open it a lot of times. I may have four-six open at the same time. Each time I open one (after the first) it is blank. I am not sure I am explaining myself clear enough for you to understand. hope so. perhaps I should take a "snipping tool" of the settings in Firefox?
