Wikipedia, though I think one or 2 other sites, stopped displaying math properly. From what I can gather there is something wrong when displaying maths. Images, text, links and headings display correctly, but maths is nearly displayed with the same colour as the background. Other pages work, images load as expected and testing on another browser ("vimb") displays the maths properly.

I have tried to look for solutions and tried reading mode, deleting all cookies abt. wikipedia, uninstall/deactivate fonts and extensions..

After the 85 update on Linux, Facebook and Instagram videos started playing choppy (low FPS), YouTube videos are fine though. They work okay on the Brave browser. I tried refreshing Firefox but it didn't help, so it's not from my add-ons.

Edit: Vimeo videos have the same problem.

Hello Firefox Forum,

I get green videos when using hardware acceleration. intel_gpu_top shows decoding action when I start firefox with: MOZ_WAYLAND_DRM_DEVICE=/dev/dri/renderD129 LIBVA_DRIVER_NAME=i965 MOZ_X11_EGL=1 MOZ_WEBRENDER=1 firefox

There's only 3 lines of error in the console, so I don't think it's related:

I have resist fingerprint settings turned on because I use keyboard shortcuts to open specific webpages / notes and I need the pages to be the same size when I launch the new instance of the browser.

but now the browser thinks I am in UTC. I need the browser to report I am in a different time zone, because nextcloud keeps assuming that my browser is telling the truth.

I cant / wont install third party add ons.

Hello,

I am trying to create a custom userChrome.css for Firefox 85 to fix the poor contrast of text on inactive tabs on KDE Plasma with the Breeze colour scheme.

I want the text of an inactive tab on the active window to be the colour white.

I want the text of an inactive tab on an inactive window to be the colour black.

I tried the following in userChrome.css:

.tabbrowser-tab:not([selected="true"]) .tab-text {

 color:white !important;

}

.tabbrowser-tab:not([selected="true"]) .tab-text2 {

 color:black !important;

}

The first block of CSS works and I get white correctly on an inactive tab on an active window. The second block of CSS does not work and I do not get black text on an inactive tab on an inactive window.

I used "tab-text2" because it was described here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1017404

Has "tab-text2" been deprecated and replaced with something else in newer versions of Firefox? How do I specify the tab text colours for an inactive window?

Thanks.

3 February 2021

I use a toolbar. Sorry, I'm old fashioned. When I install a new linux system, the first thing I do is change firefox to show the toolbar. There is a 'Bookmarks' item on the toolbar. When you click it, it gives you a menu of several options, including 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D'.

Until recently, clicking on that option opened a popup that allowed you to select a sub-folder to put the bookmark in. That was extremely useful because a flat list gets very long very quickly. You could of course just click on save bookmark in the popup and it gets added to the flat list, or, as I do, you could first select a sub-folder.

Now, clicking 'Bookmark This Page Ctrl+D' results in the bookmark immediately being saved to the flat list and a little alert momentarily pops up declaring 'saved to library'. Apparently 'library' is the same as 'other bookmarks'. How very clear (sarcasm). In addition to not knowing where the bookmark actually is, I now have to manually move it to the desired sub-folder with several other clicks. How convenient (sarcasm).

I want the old behavior back. How do I get it?

By the way, I am very old fashioned. I don't register with websites, even firefox. I used an email blackhole to sign up. I will come back here periodically (once a day) to see if there are any useful answers or questions asking for clarification. I've bookmarked this page, so it should be easy. When I'm done, I'll disappear forever, thank you very much.

https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1286932#answer-1312559 https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1316562

The problem is, my startpage still doesn't change to darkmode. All my about:* like settings, plugin and 'blank page' however does change with the system theme. Web pages like google also reacts fine to the change.

I can customize it, but I'd prefer for this to work on 'clean installs' as well :)

Hi guys,

SOmething is wrong with the firefox on my laptop. The laptop has 32Gb ram. It is super fast. Internet speed more than 100Mb/sec. Docker containers are running, everything is fine. But with firefox, I type a letter and it needs serveral seconds to print it. I tried serveral steps, recommended for similar problems, located under "support", but not nothing helped. I disabled plugins, extensions. Still the same. 

What can I do to find a reason?
