I know users are allow to disable http3 through "about:config", and it works.

However, I have to apply to multiple devices by script and the risk page might be a challenge for me.

I tried to edit prefs.js, but it will still be overwrite even I restart my device. (Re-install is not allowed)

Is there any alternative way to disable http3, such as regedit key?

Or is there method to keep pref.js unchangeable?

I would like to permanently turn off enhanced tracking protection for https://www.powerlanguage.co.uk/wordle/ so that I can track my stats. I can turn this off for a session via the shield icon but I am unable to find a way to save this setting. Manage Exceptions in Enhanced Tracking Protection in Settings does not allow me to add any site as an exception.

Firefox would not finishing loading so I (stupidly) clicked "refresh firefox" not realizing it would loose add-ons, extensions, etc. It created an Old Firefox Data folder if that can somehow get it back to as it was instead of having to figure what add-ons I had & reinstall everything, etc. My Bookmarks still appear but I need the add-ons back!

The themes I use normally have white backgrounds and black text. Following an update, the default colour scheme changed from a white background to a black background for web pages without the theme being changed. Google, YouTube, and Firefox pages are all using black backgrounds. I ensured that the Dark theme was disabled, selected the Light theme, then switched back to the theme I had been using; the black background returned when I switched back to the theme I wanted to use. I tried changing the colour settings under "Language and Appearance: Fonts and Colours: Colours..." to white text and black background and back to black text and white background, but no change was noticed at any point.

How do I change the page background back to white?

I have a bunch of bookmarks across multiple folders in my Library. Some in the Bookmarks Toolbar, most in the Bookmarks menu.

I noticed a while ago that when I click the Library button and go to "Bookmarks" I only see the Recently Added Bookmarks, without my folder structure.

I thought that maybe this is because the Recently Added list overflows and my actual bookmarks structure isn't displayed so I created userChrome.css file and disabled Recently Added Bookmarks completely.

Now whenever I click the Library button -> Bookmarks I only see the options to manage bookmarks or toggle the bookmarks toolbar.

The bookmarks are there - I can search for them, I can access them through the Bookmark Manager/Library (the external window thingy) and can see them in the "Bookmarks Menu" folder on the Sidebar, but they just don't show up in the Bookmark Menu accessed through the Library button.

I looked around here on did some Google searches but couldn't find a similar issue.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I recently deleted all cookies & site data & now whenever I search for something using Google I get the following message (below) where I also have to fill out a Captcha in order to proceed. This only happens with Firefox. On the same computer I have Microsoft Edge which has no problem with Google search. What's the problem with Firefox? Will give up this browser if this continues.

I recently changed Firefox settings to delete cookies for everything when I close it except the sites I use frequently. This has worked great for everything except for Google sites which sign me out every time I close the browser.

I assume there are some supporting sites for signing in to Google that need to be in the exception list, but I don't know what they might be. I'm also using Mozilla's new Multi-account Container extension in case that matters.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

How do you remove the muted text and icon from the tabs?

I like to mute all of my tabs so they don't play annoying sounds. However a very annoying mute icon appears when I hover over it and the "muted" text is shown under the name. I tried adding to my userChrome.css:

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); .tab-icon-overlay[muted], .tab-icon-sound[muted] {

 display: none !important;

}

This only removes the muted icon, and when I hover over a tab its favicon disappears. I also tried changing browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon as suggested in [answer] but it isn't an option anymore.

How do I remove it completely without changing the context menu item?

I have been using the same custom theme for the past 3 years or so on both my windows 10 pro and dual boot Ubuntu 20.04. Recently, my windows 10 pro firefox started going into dark mode all of a sudden without me changing ANYTHING. The system theme and everything else stays the same. Then about 5 days later, my Ubuntu 20.04 firefox started to inherit this stupid dark mode as well. I have tried _ setting ui.systemUsesDarkTheme to 0 (number value) in about:config _ Changing to other custom color themes, and they all went into dark mode. _ Refresh Firefox _ Reinstall Firefox

When I went into "Ads on & theme" tabs, changing to system theme, it picks up the white theme mode. But Youtube webpage system theme mode pick up the dark theme mode.

Hello Support,

I'm dying inside right now. I had over 400 tabs open and launched a second instance of Firefox. After that I closed the first instance and restarted my computer. Now the 400 tabs are gone and even with "Restore session" I have no success. Is there any way to restore the tabs no matter how?

Walmart website no longer works properly with latest Firefox 96.0.2 64-bit. It works properly with Chrome and other browsers. You can log onto the site and search for products but when you try to add a product to the cart nothing happens. You also can't actually go to the cart. Last time I used Walmart was a few weeks ago and everything worked fine!

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?

If you use userChrome.css to customise the tab toolbar, you might see the height of the tabs increase with Firefox 96.0.2. For me the fix was to add an entry to userChrome.css:

   #tabbrowser-tabs:not([secondarytext-unsupported]) .tab-label-container {
     height: initial !important;
   }

This counteracts a change in 96.0.2 which sets the height of that element to 2em.

I just updated to 96.0.3 (64-bit). Now when I go to some sites, I am automatically redirected to https://ninkorant.online/, which I have never heard of. This has never happened before the new update and I can't figure out how to stop it. There is no longer an "Options" or "Preferences" choice on any menus. I just want to stop redirect or to block the site to which I am automatically redirected. Some "solutions" I get when I search this problem involve resetting my browser, which will eliminate my add-ons and bookmarks, and I want to avoid such a drastic action. Is this a glitch in 96.0.3? What can I do? Thanks.

I used to create desktop shortcuts to websites by dragging the padlock thumbnail to the left of the URL to the desktop. (see first image)

Now it does not create a shortcut but instead creates a file on the desktop with a .URL extension.(see 2nd image) Double clicking on the file will take me to the website, but as a file and not a shortcut, I cannot modify the name displayed or change the icon displayed.

Am I looking at something new in version 96 or have I inadvertantly changed something in the settings?

Firefox keeps resetting Bing SafeSearch back to Moderate. This change occurs with every single search and the problem has only begun since in the last week to 10 days (it is now 1/21/2022.) I have cleared all histories and cookies and even gone as far as to completely reset my computer. It happens on all my PC computers, Win 10 and Win 11. It happens with all combinations of my Firefox profiles and all of my MS accounts. It happens when I'm not signed into any Firefox profile or Bing account. It happens in normal mode as well as private mode. It happens only with Firefox. It does not happen with Edge or Chrome. This is very clearly a conflict between Firefox and Bing SafeSearch.

I have a custom theme on Firefox called Charlies Red. Up until two days ago, Firefox would always consider it to be in light mode (which I prefer) whenever I'd use it. Now, however, it's in dark mode, and the only way I can return to light mode is to give up my custom theme and instead choose Light as a theme, which I don't like as much as Charlies Red.

Is there a way to force light mode on regardless of which theme I use? One source said I could go to about:config and create a ui.systemUsesDarkTheme number, setting it to 0, but I tried it to no avail and so deleted the number.
