I copied my old profile into the profile folder of a new installation of Firefox. Removed the default. Firefox won't read my old profile. Every time I restart Firefox, it creates a new default profile. My old profile, of course, has all my old bookmarks, user names and passwords which I need. I need to get up and running.

Goodbye after 22 years of use starting with Netscape Navigator.

Your “nannyware” mindset, (“This Connection is Untrusted” and you cant change that) along with the internal data harvesting features, have cost me to much time and annex than I am willing to expend in the future.

Looks like Chromium is my new home.

P.S. You "educated guesses about your current browser and operating system" are very wrong.

Defining Colours using feColorMatrix settings in CSS

I use a few extensions that add their own toolbar button icons. These icons are multi-coloured and therefore they don't match the built in Firefox icons (which are all a dark indigo colour).

I the past, I have manually changed the toolbar icons for these extensions so that they all match. I did this by re-colouring the icons in Photoshop, and then unpacked the xpi file of the extension and replacing the original toolbar button image with my colour-corrected image,

This has been working great for me for many years, but it's a annoying to do for extensions that have new versions released regularly (because you have to keep manually replacing the icon after every new update).

Now that Firefox is switching to Signed / Validated extensions, this creates a bigger problem,. Manually updating icons inside the extension's xpi file will invalidate the signature, and while it is currently possible to work around this limitation (by setting about:config > using xpinstall.signatures.required to 'false') this option might not be available in future. I therefore wanted to find a different way of dealing with the icon colour issue.

After searching on the internet, I found a CSS script that uses "feColorMatrix" settings to colour all the default Firefox icons into various different pastel shades (https://userstyles.org/styles/101231/colorize-firefox-buttons).

I used a section of that CSS code and applied it to the icons that were added by my extensions, and it works perfectly! See the attached 'before and after' screenshot image.

However, my question relates to how to SPECIFY colours when using feColorMatrix settings. I've investigated online, but it's very complicated and I don't understand it. I was hoping to find a simple online tool where I could just enter an RGB or Hex colour values and have this converted into the required feColorMatrix values.

Does such a tool exist? and if not, what values should I use to get icons coloured to match the default built-in Firefox icons?

Here is an example of the CCS code that I used (this gives a purple / lilac shade):


/* Modify colour of Undo Close Tab icon to - currently set to purple */

#btn_undoclose .toolbarbutton-icon { 
   filter: url("data:image/svg+xml;utf8,<svg xmlns=\'http://www.w3.org/2000/svg\'><filter id=\'invert\'>\
   <feColorMatrix in='SourceGraphic' type='matrix' values=\
   '0.38 0.3 0.3 0.0 0.18 \
   0.3 0.38 0.3 0.0 0.0 \
   0.3 0.3 0.38 0.0 0.26 \
   0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.0'/></filter></svg>#invert") !important;
 }

Hi. Mac has crashed (as this POS is wont to), and now when FF 36.0 opens I see my session list that I can supposedly recover. When I select a session that crashed and click recover, however, nothing happens - the windows disappears and Firefox just has one tab, one window, with the start page. What gives?

When I download some file types, such as CSV or JSON, they automatically open in LibreOffice.

I want to use a different program for JSON files.

However, when I navigate to the "Applications" settings dialog, none of these file types are listed. There is no entry for CSV, nor for JSON, nor are there any mentions of LibreOffice whatsoever.

This dialog does not let me add new file types, so I am at a loss as to how to change this behavior.

Are these settings hidden away somewhere in my profile directory, perhaps? Can I edit them there?

Note: The same occurs if I click on the downloaded file from the "Downloads" list.

Tried every procedure to change my homepage. Not on this computer that I am on now (Dell Studio 1737 laptop), but an older dell desktop machine. Running Win XP (sorry) on the old machine. Ran all Norton 360 scans to no avail. Running new Firefox 41.0.2 reloaded on the Win XP desktop. Click on Firefox, get these three other windows on screen 1-"credit process w/token not located", 2-"cannot find GeniusBox\client.exe" and 3-A black screen in new window and says"c\win\sys32\svchost.exe". If I wait 30 second, can close all these windows. Click on FGirefox icon, it comes up on screen with these three new screens, I get rid of them, and the home page is "search.jzip.com". There is no "jzip" anywhere on the machine, there is no GeniusBox on the machine, and I have tried every explanation of how to change my homepage in Firefox. I can make a second tab that will go to "https://www.Ixquick.com" and it will work fine when I click on it, but I cannot get rid of the real Firefox homepage on tab 1 on Firefox when I clip on the Firefox icon of that "search.jzip.com" that shows as my homepage. Thanks for any help.
