I've been having issues with the themes on the Firefox Browser. Almost all themes forces dark-mode on the browser. Since update 100 it no longer effects websites, but it still affects the browser (menues etc) despite me having the settings locked on light-mode.

Custom theme not loading (always reverting to the default). This is my quick solution.

My custom theme was reverting back to the default every time I started Firefox. Going into my theme and disabling and re-enabling it worked, but having to do that every time was annoying. Googling the problem came up with many links to Mozilla support and only said that that it was likely a setting in the "prefs.js" file or a corrupted "extensions.json" file. Unfortunately, no one else was pointing me to what parameter in the prefs.js file I needed to search for. So I had to find it myself. So I made a backup of the file for safety, fired up my Edit Pad Lite text editor, and opened the prefs.js file. Yikes, lots of values. So I carefully searched for the word "theme". I kept pressing F3 to continue searching for the next occurrence of the word "theme" (without the quotes of course). I finally found these 2 lines:

user_pref("lightweightThemes.persisted.footerURL", true); user_pref("lightweightThemes.persisted.headerURL", false);

Hmm. The lightweight theme header was false. Could it be that simple to change it to true? So I made sure I had shut down Firefox as Mozilla states that the prefs.js file is overwritten by Firefox upon exiting, changed the value to "true", saved the file, and restarted Firefox. Viola, my theme stayed on. I selected other themes, exited and restarted Firefox, and that theme was still there and not reset to the default. My problem was solved. I don't know how that value got set to "false" (and don't care), but now that it's set to "true" my theme is working every time I use Firefox. I'm surprised that no one else had found and posted this simple solution.

When I login to the FAA AMCS application if there is a message to be read, clicking on the "View" button causes a pop up window to appear greyed out that disables Firefox browser? I should be able to click a button on the window that says "Confirm" to indicate I've seen the notice, but I have to actually close Firefox, login from a different browser to be able to click on that message in order to return to Firefox in order to login again to their site.

As described above I'm now seeing section descriptions in a program app I've been using in my work successfully over the past two years. Now, all of a sudden, the section titles in the program are faded gray almost to white, which makes entering info (not to mention eye strain), really difficult. Just wondering if this might have been something that occurred with the last Firefox update.

I've tried adjusting the screen resolution but it makes no difference. See the screenshot with this message.

For a few months now I can't upload anything larger than 500 MB on Google Drive. I did talk to GD support and it worked fine with Chrome and Chromium. So whatever is causing this problem, it's in Firefox. I tried with a clear Firefox (one with no extensions by deleting /.mozilla) but it's still the same - the upload starts but then stops within the first 30 seconds. Ping and traceroute are all perfectly fine to google servers, no losses, so it's not the connection either.

Firefox is the latest stable version: 101.0.

I am having a periodic issue where, when I have Firefox in full screen, the top portion of the screen is blank bar, where the open tabs and search bar should be. When I toggle to another application, Word, perhaps, it doesn't look that way. When I close and reopen Firefox, I still see the blank bar. The only resolution appear to be restarting my computer.
