Hey all, I just updated Firefox on PC and the updater asked a couple questions. I chose "Visionary" as the answer to a question because it suited me the best out of all the options. However, this also changed the colors of my browser menu and toolbar to green. The thing is, while green is a fine color, I would never select it as "my" color for anything ever.

I've tried to change the color in about:preferences, but nothing I can find seems to work. Any ideas?

Thanks!

Hello,

I just recently went from Brave browser back to the old days on Firefox but there is one thing that I miss and I cant find any information anywhere about that when I opened new tabs on Brave it didnt switch to the new tab directly. Sometimes I wanna open alot of links from a page but its a real hazzle here when I need to go back to the old tab again everytime. Is there a setting for that anywhere?

Kind regards

With the upgrade to Firefox 106 on Mac, Private browsing windows open with a dark theme by default. How do I enable the light theme for Private browsing windows?

I use Private browsing at work for website testing, and the dark themed tabs / UI are much harder to read and use than with a light theme.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, 106.1, and I'm missing the Firefox View button on my MacBook Pro 13". It is showing on my Mac Mini M1, and both are logged in and syncing properly using my Firefox account.

When I type in about:firefoxview on my MacBook Pro in the URL bar, I see the page but noticed it says "New colorways are on the way" on the right. On my Mac Mini, I see the "Independent Voices" text and an option to "Try colorways".

Bug? Some weird setting on my MacBook? Both are running macOS Monterey, 12.6.

I've been unable to play twitter videos at all. For videos and audio posts on other sites, there's usually a delay for a couple seconds before it plays. I disabled all my add-ons and it made no difference. If I try to play 2 different things at once, both of them will chug if play at all.

Does anyone know what the cause might be? I tested videos and audio in another browser and they work fine.

Moving mouse quickly and hit something, mouse clicked. BAM, fonts and picture to tiny size. Cannot find anything that makes that happen to undo it. All pages that site, no other site. Closing/opening Firefox stays the same. Zoomed to max and can now see, but page is not correct proportions.

font corruption? the font called Calibri is showing up as italic in all websites that use calibri. but i dont have calibri installed on my computer. how do i fix this? in the past, my friend had a similar issue with fonts looking all weird in code on websites and i told her it was font corruption and had to remove a font on the system level which rectified the issue. but in my case, i dont have calibri installed on my computer. so when i go to the outlook website, all the emails are coming in as calibri italic out of nowhere, when i didnt change any font settings. if i go into google docs, and paste some notes and change all the notes to the font called calibri, it shows it as italic. but i dont have italic selected in google docs. how do i fix this in firefox???

I have made two Complaints to Google!! I explained in Detail that i have Stopped the many Google Play Store Permisions and why? I installed Google Go and gave the App all the Permissions it asks for! I downloaded it from Google Play! Their own site! I was amazed to see a question Do Not Use This For Search? Then i changed search engines as Google were Emailing me Non Stop! So i put focus as my Default Browser and they would not let me Backup my Phone but i have a 2nd email even though my main email for 35yrs is the same? Then if i dont give Permissions to Google Play Wallet wont work and on it goes! Its Blackmail pure and simple i never asked for thd App to begin with? Do i change everything back??

bookmarks text white on white

Firefox updated to 106.0.2 (64-bit). When I click the sidebar icon, my bookmarks appear on the browser's left side as expected. However the text is not visible. If I hover my mouse over an icon is the list for a bookmark, the link appears. Also not all the bookmark icons appear. There are gaps between bookmarks on the list. Again, I have to hover my mouse over those gaps for bookmark info to appear. How do I make my bookmark list readable/usable again?

Hi, when I log into my bank I give my account number and then a password. I have told firefox not to remember my password but it is remembering the bank account number which automatically pops up when I am on the banks log in page. How do I stop this? Also when I signed up for this firefox help it asked for an email address and all my email addresses poped up for me to chose from. I didn't like this either. Appreciate any help. If these features can't be turned off whats the last version I can use that won't do this? cheers Neil

Hi, I'm migrating to a new PC and followed the below article to open all my currently synced tabs from the old machine on my new one: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1357426

The issue is that the on the new machine when I open all synced tabs, the order is reversed, i.e. my latest tabs that are on the right on the old machine are now on the left in my new machine. How do I tell open all tabs to keep the same order in the new machine? Any help is greatly appreciated..!

I would like to open my history page and select an entry and open in it a new tab and the history page to remain open.

It is annoying that the history page closes automatically after the user opens a selected entry. Because I often view history trying to find a previous tab and typically don't find it first go, but then have to reopen history :(

Is it possible to change that behaviour?

Hi, thanks a lot in advance and sorry to bother. :)

I have a couple of desktop/laptop devices synced with the same account. When I make a backup/export of my bookmarks in each device (.json/.html files) the checksums of those files don't coincide between devices. Nevertheless, if I open the exported HTMLs in Firefox and save them as Text Files, the resultant files have all the same checksum (sha256sum), i.e., are all the same.

Is this how it is supposed to be? Or should my bookmarks JSON/HTML files be exactly the same in all devices and something is wrong?

Thanks a lot in advance.

I have just updated Firefox to 106.0.4 (64-bit), the latest version. The first issue was that all my add-ons and extensions were disabled, and I had to manually re-enable all of them.

The next issue is that I cannot now minimise Firefox. I have tried the published fix - Go to the menu, then "More Tools" then "Customise Toolbar" and finally untick the "Title bar" on the lower left side. This has no effect.

Can anyone suggest another fix? I am using Windows 11 (not yet updated to 2022 H2 - am waiting for this to become stable).

When I try to access a login I have used in the past I can no longer access it. Instead the tab just gives a (($root.title)) message.

When I access the site via Chrome I can login without problems.

The site is not special, as far as I can tell. https://www.aarproadside.com/aarp/

Something has changed in a recent Firefox update because, as I said, I used to be able to access this site with Firefox.

Help please I don't want to use a different browser for some sites.
