Hi, Since the last update, when I click on a link, the new tab can't be launched. It opens and closed immediatly. I have to click a second time to open it. It is the same problem when I open a new tab manually, I type web address, and when I click on "Enter", the tab closes... I have to do it again and it works. It is not the first time. Next year, after an update, I had the same problem. No change on my systems (Windows 10) and on my MacBook too... Is there anyone who have the same problem ? How to resolve it ? Thank you

I bought a new phone from AT&T and I wanted to use Firefox and get away from chrome and when they used smart transfer to transfer all my data from the old phone to the new phone no open tabs or passwords came with it and now I can't figure out how to import them. I've searched on Google and tried to follow the steps but I don't have the options that they say to use. I have tried installing Firefox on my old phone and importing them from chrome to Firefox on my old phone and then to the new phone and that doesn't work. I managed to export the passwords from Chrome on my old phone to Chrome on my new phone but I can't get the open tabs to and I can't transfer my passwords from chrome on my new phone to Firefox on my new phone. Please, can anybody help me?

Firefox times out when connecting to a site with URL redirection unless HTTPS protocol is explicitly typed

I am running Firefox Developer Edition 92.0b9 on macOS Monterey 12.0 Beta 6 (21A5506j).

I noticed lately that I couldn't open some sites, either when I tried to follow a link or typed the URL in the address bar. After a few trials and errors, I think I have identified a pattern but no idea of what the root cause is:

  • the sites I am trying to access all redirect to a different URL;
  • I can open the sites just fine if I explicitly type `https://` in the address bar.

A few of the sites I am struggling with:

I noticed that I could open the above URLs just fine in a Private window, so tried the following to no avail:

  • Clear cache;
  • Restart Firefox in Troubleshooting Mode (still on as I am writing this);
  • Install Firefox Beta side-by-side;
  • Completely uninstall Firefox and remove the existing profile, before doing a fresh install.

None of the above solutions work and I am a bit stumped. Safari, Chrome and Brave all work fine.

When some websites use DRM Software's I must Disable my extensions to play the video. How can I disable the add-ons to the specific website? And if it cannot be done how can I disable all my extensions at once. Without un-ticking one by one?

Because every time I visit the website with DRM I must Go one by one to disable my add-ons.

I used to have Firefox awhile back and I really liked your app but I noticed at the time someone was messing with my settings and add-ons and they didn't stop so that's why I quit using it. This was over 3yrs ago. I ran across an old email address that I had also lost years ago. Here lately I've been finding accounts that I couldn't access at all then. I understand your policy and I don't want trouble for anyone. I'm 56 yrs old, I have 5 grown children and they all are on their own, my husband and I are the only ones who live in our house. For 3 yrs I've been asking and begging for help because I ended up finding out I definitely have someone accessing my data pretty much full control over everything. I actually got so excited when I was reading your short story about pertection. I thought thank goodness I finally have someone who can help me. I only own a Android device. No ipad, tablets, computers nor an apple iPhone. I've been through at least 8-9 phones trying to get rid of these people. Infact I'm pretty sure I know who's doing this but I don't know who will help me prove it. I've never been so bullied and put down all the time through their messages to me and when I was getting messages from apps about children and violence it made me so sick. I'm a good person and I'm not like that at all. I'm the type of person who would give you my shirt off my back if you needed it. Believe me I've reported to Fed's about identity theft, talked to local police here about what's going on plus called Google, Amazon and Facebook. I just can't get anyone to help. Honestly I really don't use my phone that much but every once in awhile I'll jump on here. But that's the truth. My name is Kimberly Hughes, my phone number is: [removed] I know I'm not supposed to give my information but I did it in case you need more information. Thank you and again I'm sorry. I'll not use Firefox and I'll uninstall it.

Dark Mode used to work beautifully in Firefox. Today it stopped working. I can choose Dark Mode in the settings page, and the settings page itself then uses Dark Mode. But Dark Mode does not work in any of the other pages, only the settings page. I think it must be a flaw in an update that was installed automatically today. (September 7, 2021)

Is there a way to uninstall this update and go back to the previous version. Dark Mode used to work beautifully and Firefox was my favorite browser. Can someone help? Thanks.

My menu items are now (9/7/2021) White and double-spaced. Why does FireFox change things that don't need changing with no path back. First, they changed menu color to default to another (I think same as Toolbar color) with no recourse. Now the menus are white and double spaced (today! out of the blue sky!!). FireFox, at LEAST make these features configurable. Why do you do this?

Firefox just updated a few minutes ago, and since the update my background in every website I visit is white. Previously my backgrounds were all black due to my Windows 10 "High Contrast Theme" being activated. Well since the update it seems Firefox "ignores" the Windows Theme settings and overrides them with its own. As far as I can tell, there is no way to make websites display with a black background like they did before the update. I hope this gets fixed.

FFox 92 update today. Menu spacing went to double. No shock there. Found the CSS code below for UserChrome.css and set it up.

EX.

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {
  padding-block: 4px !important;
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 4px 8px !important;
}

Here's the issue: I want it tighter than 4px. So, I set it down to 2px... eventually dropping it to all 0px settings.

EX:

menupopup > menuitem, menupopup > menu {
  padding-block: 0px !important;
}
:root {
  --arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 0px 0px !important;
}

But, it doesn't get any smaller than the above 4/8px set up. Bug? Perhaps there's another CSS setting to be tweaked for V 92? I do not have any other CSS for these items elsewhere in my UserChrome file.

When I watch a Youtube video the play/pause button that's normally in the bottom left corner is missing. When the video is playing my mouse disappears if it's over the video and the progress bar won't show. Youtube works fine on other browsers on this computer. My browser updated to version 92.0 today, so I'm not sure if that's what caused it. I'm using Windows 10 64 bit.

A few hours ago I installed firefox on an old laptop, logged in, synced my bookmarks etc. Everything went fine except for that this laptop was having the default dark theme and it synced this theme with my main laptop. Now I can't find the theme that my main laptop was using.

I've tried: - Searching for it in about:addons - Searching for it in https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/themes/ in my personal profile

How do I find the theme I was using for my main laptop again? it was a default firefox theme which had purple/orange as the main colors.
