I HATE the new look. I've hated it ever since they smoothed everything out, and tabs just look like some sort of continuous amorphous mess. I want the lines between tabs so it is easier to distinguish between them. I know that changing the "browser.proton.enabled" to false gets rid of this garbage new look, but for some reason, whenever I switch this over, the setting doesn't save. Every time I reopen FireFox, it reverts back to this ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE layout. (can you tell I hate it? FIX IT MOZILLA!!!!)

Please help...?

Thanks!

I tend to share images to a lot of my friends and groups through discord, while using firefox as my browser of choice. However, when copying images from firefox, it seems to copy images twice. Ive read that its due to something about one with and without color profiles. Is there a way to disable this? Its not a major deal, just annoying.

In as I am lacking technological experience to properly address the problem of, "the significance of pins tacked onto shortcut icons on Firefox opening page"; I will confront the situation with a simple picture. ⇘ I suppose I will never know: Two days ago this inquiry was attempted. However all was curtailed upon the realization several minutes passed during the process of uploading the image. Be it known, today, twenty minutes have passed in attempt to upload 238KB png file. Apparently security is prohibiting this. In any event, perchance some of this does get through... HELP

I updating firefox last night and now everything is like its in dark mode. The theme I am using is mostly dark, but it was last updated in 2019, so no changes to the theme. When I open a new tab, the page is black instead of white, etc. Is there a way to disable dark mode without changing my theme? It worked fine before I updated.

Firefox 96.01 seems to be blocking access to popmoney through my credit union's website. The error message states that I must allow third-party cookies, but Firefox 96 doesn't have an option to specifically enable/disable third-party cookies. I can do this easily on Microsoft Edge, so I have to fall back on Edge in order to use popmoney.

Copy of error message:

"We're sorry for this error. In order to use this service, your internet browser must accept third-party cookies. Please refer to your browser's online help for enabling cookies in your system. Please try again after you enable the cookies."

Over the years, I have become dependent on a bookmarks toolbar that shows only icons, but will show the text with a mouse hover, using the following in userchrome:

/* The lines below allow the bookmarks toolbar to show only icons */

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { display:none !important; }
#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
 margin:0px 0px 0px -4px !important;
 padding:0px !important;
}

The upgrade to Firefox 96 broke this. I considered spending an hour or two deleting the text from all of the bookmarks on my bookmarks toolbar, but I depend on the mouse-hover tooltip with the text to remind me of some important but not all-that-frequently-used bookmarks.

Any help appreciated.

I have stated this issue once before after trying to find a solution by myself.

My query: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1363376

Whenever I boot up my laptop, firefox starts running in the background taking up a lot of memory space and cpu utilization. I have been with ffirefox since I started using laptops which is 7-8 years back. I never thought of switching browser or finding an alternative of firefox until for some months the issue is occurring. Now I am really annoyed to open up task manager every time and close firefox which is running in the backgroud. I have seen nothing unusual in the "about:performance" tab of firefox.

Please help me to continue my journey with firefox.

So I installed Firefox, and now it has "disappeared" from the my Windows 11 system. It is not in the apps list, and i cannot search for it in the start search bar. Weird part is that the files are still in the Program Files folder, and clicking the application works.

I reinstalled Firefox and everything seems to be ok, but then it happened again.

Anyone has any insights?

unable to turn off safe search when using Bing search. After clicking the more bars on the Bing search page and setting safe search to off, when checking if it is off, it has reverted to moderate. Firefox is vs 96.0.1. Setting is set to normal, not strict. Windows 10 preferences are set to safe search off. All caches have been cleared. I took off all extensions, ran malware bytes & cccleaner & anti-virus scan. I tried a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Using Edge or Chrome browsers on the Bing search page, Safe search turns off as it should.

--There was a power failure, last night, which knocked off my computer.  That may or may not be related.  However, with both Edge and Chrome accessing Bing okay, it seems to definitely be a Firefox problem?

Hi; When I close FF (V96.01) it does not seem to close properly and when restarted trys, usually unsuccesfully, to reopen previous tab. I have , open previous tabs and windows, unchecked in settings. I have tried both the X and exit. If I set, browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash, to false in options it does not happen. as per https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1292610. But when I reset session restore to true the problem resumes. This makes me believe FF is not closing properly Win10 is up to date with all latest updates as is FF.

Is there a fix for this?
