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


Anyone know how to get round this ?

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.

I am new to Mozilla VPN. Followed the instructions and made sure mozillavpn was allowed to communicate through Microsoft Firewall on both public and private networks. Double-checked in settings Windows 10 to make sure it had permission.

I am currently on a private (home) network. Mozilla VPN starts with message "masking connection and location". It then displays message "attempting to confirm connection". It pauses there for a couple of minutes before failing. In quick succession, I get a message about "disconnecting" then "unmasking".

Any suggestions?

ff 95.0.2

I play 2 games. After reaching a certain level, it is nice to begin where I left off. It used to save on v 88.1 Now I have to start over every time. Except once. It is not worth the effort anymore.

Added as exceptions, so I don't delete them when I clear cache and cookies. That is the way I used to do them.

Thank you.

For the past couple of weeks Thunderbird has exhibeted some unwanted behavior. #2 I often shut down T'bird with multiple emails, each in their own tab. Recently, I seem to have accumulated multiple open email tabs. I have gone back through the open tabs and closed them (there have gotten to be quite a few, and it is a fair investment of time to get them all closed). I am not deleting them, just closing the tab each is on. Then I close Thunderbird. Next time I open Thunderbird, be it a few minutes, a few hours, or the next day or so, all the emails I closed are once again opened upon startup. This is making a huge number of tabs be open, and I am unable to make them stay closed. I am not deleting them, just closing the tab each is on. Why is this occuring (started a couple weeks ago, maybe around the same time Firefox auto-updated to v92 or 93, can't recall which.

I have reinstalled my home computer and reinstalled Firefox, logged in and synced. My passwords from my work browser's Lockwise have not appeared or synced. Please advise. Thank you.

I know patience is thin. Feel free to cut to the chase. I did try to self serve and only found export then import options. Are my expectations for sync incorrect?

Happy New Year.

I have been using Thunderbird for many years. And, I've created multiple Folders (with multiple levels drilling down) which I place emails that I want to save. A couple of days ago, I left clicked holding an upper level folder, and dragged it to another folder. When I did that, Thunderbird showed a little circulating icon spinning until the process finished about a minute later. At the end of the process, a whole group of folders and emails disappeared.

When I explore the profile, under the folder "Mail", "pop.gmail.com", "_Companies.sbd", I can see folder names that correspond to the folders that disappeared. In those folders, I see files with the file extension "wdseml". Some folders don't have anything in them though.

My questions are:

(1) Can folders that disappeared be recovered where I can access them again in Thunderbird? And if so, how do I accomplish that? Is there an index file somewhere that can be audited and adjusted?

(2) If there is no easy way to recover those lost folders and emails, can I just remove the existing profile and replace it with a backed up profile I saved about one month ago. I would lose all the emails I had from that point to now. But, I would have all the original folders and emails up to that point.

Thank you for and help, direction or advice you can afford me, Chris
