I run Firefox on my Mac. Recently, the display of internet pages has changed by not showing background fill colors and showing bold borders of table cells. Images show what I see currently versus what displays on other devices (and on Firefox until recently). I cannot find a way to return the display to its previous settings. Thanks for any advice and assistance.

Most times I access a web site with calendars (e.g. when trying to book travel) the calendar(s) that appear show the correct day and date but when I click on the desired date it populates the field with an incorrect date.

For example I will choose Thursday 22 April 2021 from the calendar but when I click on that date to populate the travel date it will show as Thursday 20 April 2021. This problem happens on most of the sites where a pop-up calendar displays and more often than not an incorrect date appears when I exit the calendar.

Hello all, I regularly open up pop up windows to do my job, containing lots of column data. Until recently, the columns would squeeze down as small as they could - depending on data field and font size - meaning the bottom scroll bar was unnecessary. However, in last 1-2 weeks(?) the data columns seem happy to spread themselves out menaing I always have to scroll right to see the last few columns. Is there anything like a 'make the columns fit if they're capable of doing' command/shortcut? Thanks all.

How do I pin the header at the top of the window? It all of a sudden went into hide mode, only showing up if I mouse over it, then it makes the screen content jump down. Very annoying. I must have hit a key code I don't know or they updated or something...

What's the difference between Session Restore and restoring Recently Closed Windows (Ctrl+Shift+N)?

Folks frequently bemoan that Firefox doesn't have the same Ctrl+Shift+T keyboard shortcut to Restore Previous Sessions that Chromium has (heck, I'm one of them), but I noticed that Ctrl+Shift+N will restore Previously Closed Windows. From a backend perspective, is there a functional difference between these two options? Does using the Restore Previous Sessions button in the History panel behave differently in regards to, I don't know, cookies or something? I'm a little hazy on what a "session" is and why it's important.

Firefox already has features for blocking autoplay. I use all of those.

But, some websites still manage to autoplay! Is there a way to stop those devious websites? Examples include Yahoo Finance and ESPN.

I already have Autoplay set to "Block Audio and Video" in the Permissions section of Settings. I have also gone into about:config and set the following:

media.autoplay.allow-extension-background-pages false media.autoplay.block-event.enabled true media.autoplay.block-webaudio true media.autoplay.default 5

Is there anything else I can do?

Also, does anyone know *why* firefox is allowing these videos to play?
