If I have Mozilla Firefox open for a period of time, if posting a link, or refreshing it's as if there is no internet connection.

Web links in other tabs have no problem, only Tumblr.

Closing out the tab which Tumblr is in and opening a new tab and inserting the link produces the same result as if there's no internet connection.

The only way so far to rectify the problem is to close out Firefox, then restart. There also seems to be a delay in Firefox closing. When I click on the Firefox icon to open it, a pop-up appears that Firefox is already running, would you like to close it?

I recently installed a theme that I really like, but the search bar by default is a blinding white color and it contrasts heavily with the dark blue colors in the theme I picked.

Is there a way for me to edit the background color and text color of the search bar to be a different color? I've tried looking at different solutions and most of them make reference to userchrome or something else I have absolutely no idea how to work. Can someone explain to me, in the most simple and hard to get wrong terms as humanly possible, how to change the background and text color in the search bar? Is this something I edit the theme itself for? How do I do that?

Thanks in advance. Attached image shows the part of the browser I'm talking about if it somehow wasn't clear enough. I'd like to turn the white color into, say, dark blue or gray, and change the text color to a light blue or white.

Please advise how to resolve this.

How to change the Tab color for inactive tabs?

I have a userChrome file and have been able to change the color of the active tab but cannot do so for the inactive tab. The inactive tab color blends into the toolbar color. If I move my mouse cursor over it changes to a slight darker gray color.

Active tab color. I made mine a off white color:

.tab-background[selected="true"] {

   background-color: #f9f7f1 !important;

It has recently come to my attention that Mozilla may not continue to support Firefox browsers installed on Windows 7 computers after Jan. 2023, when the extended support for Windows 7 ends. Is that correct?

Will Firefox continue to work, but not receive security updates after that date?

Will Firefox still work on a Windows 7 computer that gets patches from 0Patch?

Thanks!

I have been using Firefox for a long time. I can't even think of using another of those of the other browsers tht are so intrusive. I just noticed, and I think it is new,, that my history button shows my personal emails I have visited. Of course no one can go there and see the entire email massage without my login and pwd. But it is still awful - for example I just looked again and there is the security verification code - 3****2 - I just used to sign up for Firefox Accounts. So all my subjects of personal concern are right there for all the world to see what I am talking about with other people. I don't have anything to hide (right now) but I can imagine many ideas that I would rather not have snooping eyes able to see. I'm sure that many people with different lifestyles that me would be LIVID if they knew that their subjects of emails were available to be visible on an open page. - Here are some others in my history list: "Adrian-Your credit limit has increased--Chase..." "John L***** has joined your personal meeting room" "Lucky Brand Jeans + casual pants now buy one get 1 . . ." "Your Online Bill is available - Verizon Wireles . . ." - - - Like I said, I don't remember ever seeing history references to my personal emails before. I enjoy using the history button - it's much faster than going to bookmarks or typing in. I have looked at the subjects of help but it doesn't seem to cover this. I hope I don't have to go to the trouble of VPN or "Always delete history" - - hope you can help with a bug fix or simple setting. - - Jerme

Hello,

after installing 98.01 recently a tab was opened that informed about a feature for Firefox installations on smartphones: the site said that it is possible to continue my work where I stopped before, including open tabs, bookmarks etc.

I don't have a smartphone - I only use firefox on my notebook. Since I'm considering to buy a new notebook in the upcoming weeks I ask myself how it is possible to migrate my current firefox installastion to a new notebook. Especially I'd like to have all my open tabs, bookmarks and cookies back after having installed firefox on the new notebook.

How can I do this? GreetZ and thanks a lot in advance!
