Latest update broke usability of Firefox. Firefox no longer remembers which tab I was on before I moved away from it. It’s opening a new tab and don’t even get me started on the button movements.

There should be some minimum usability studies a product must do so that they don’t mess up too badly.

I always used a theme that is dark on the top side (tab area), after the last update, all pages went on darkmode without me making any change, google search, twitter, whatsapp web, even the initial firefox page. The only way to turn that off is to deactivate my theme. I dont want my browser to be entirely on dark mode. How can I roll back this change?

Hi,

I have 2 online stores built using Wordpress, both use the same theme, 'Storefront' and both using Woocommerce. The site with the issue, I am using a child theme.

Today I noticed the credit card input box on the checkout page is missing on the site with the child theme - the input fields aren't loading at all. (see screenshot) The issue only happens on Firefox and Firefox mobile. Everything displays on Chrome and Edge browsers.

I have deactivated all other plugins and checked after each one to see if the problem persists - it does. I have also tried using the Twenty Twnety-one theme to see if that makes a difference - it does not.

The site has previously been working and all boxes / input fields have been displaying properly until today.

If I inspect the element using FF console the document within the iframe is missing. Yet, when I use the console via Chrome or Edge it isn't (as expected becasue it displays on both browsers).

Any ideas as to why this behavour, will be appreciated - thanks.

Regards,


NOTE: I am using; Windows 7 / Android 8.0 FF 96.0.1 Chrome 97.0.4692.71 Edge 97.0.1072.62

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

Before updating to Firefox 96, I could close tabs no matter how squished they were. Now I cannot. Someone with a similar problem at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1194322 was able to find help, but I'm not meeting with any success implementing their chosen fix. Is there a way to keep the close tab button active with this many tabs anymore, or is that out?

Can't restore previous session, "recently closed windows" grayed out

Hi

I had two Firefox windows open. One with 100+ tabs and the other with 1 tab. I closed the Firefox with 100 tabs, and then closed the one with 1 tab, without thinking. I then realised that I should have closed them in the opposite order, because I want the 100 tabs to get restored.

I opened Firefox again and was dismayed to see just the single tab get restored. I did some searching and backed up the "sessionstore-backups" folder.

I then tried to close Firefox and replace sessionstore.jsonlz4 with previous.jsonlz4 from the backed up "sessionstore-backups" folder. This did not work, as when I opened Firefox I still only got the 1 tab back and "recently closed windows" remains grayed out. Ctrl+Shift+N does nothing as well.

I used https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/scrounger.html to inspect the backed up previous.jsonlz4 file and it shows

Open Windows Open Window 1 Tab 1 [...]

Closed Windows Closed Window 1 Tab 1 [...] [...] Tab 125 [...]

So the previous.jsonlz4 file does contain my mistakenly closed window but I can't get Firefox to restore the tabs!

Can anyone please help me get my tabs back? I'm on Firefox v96.0.1.

My Firefox browser recently upgraded to 96.0.1 (64bit) and since then I have noticed that the background on when doing google searches and when watching Youtube is in dark theme. Altering to the light theme in Firefox settings has no effect and I have tried all the suggestions without success.

I did find that by removing the theme Unicorn Fantasy by M♥Donna and installing a light grey theme this forced google and youtube into there light theme. I have also tried installing other themes and these also seem to cause the dark mode.

I would assume it is a problem caused by the latest Firefox update as google and youtube had the normal white background before this. It's not a massive problem, just annoying and makes little difficult to use
