Hey there, awesomes! I'd like to change my Firefox pdf viewer's background color (both sides of the pdf) to dark, currently it shows light gray (see `background_bg.png`). And here is effect I want it to look like (see screenshot from Chrome `wished_bg.png`). Thanks in advance (:

PS: I don't want to change my theme to dark. It seems I have to change my css, but I dunno which & how.

Message always pops up in WIN 10 saying Mozilla Firefox is not is not my default browser even though it is. I have decided to use Firefox over Edge as my default browser in Win 10 but every time I start Firefox a message pops up saying Firefox is not my default browser. I have gone to the next screen and confirm that it is. but each time I open and close Firefox the message reappears! I have gone on internet and tried all the solutions suggested like reinstalling, going into default apps through control panel, through the CMD prompt, etc and still no fix seems to work. The message is annoying to no end as each time I start Firefox I have to click through two extra screens to start using it. I have no problem with Chrome but I prefer Firefox because certain sites don't work well with Chrome for some reason and Firefox works well but this is getting annoying switching between apps or clicking these extra keys. I noticed a lot of people are having the same issue with WIN 10. I have no problems on my Win 7 computer but I am thinking of upgrading it and of course it will come with Win 10 so I want to solve this problem if I can now. Any new "fix" since last I checked? I have tried all so far suggested online with no success. I do note it is a it is a WIN 10 and Firefox problem. Is there anyone from MS or Mozilla that can help?

When I use the Firefox v80.0.1 browser and enter a file: URL (i.e. "file:///X:/Path" ), the folder icons are missing from the sub-folders (subdirectories). All other icons appear to be present. The folder icons were present in past releases, so it appears to be this release. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I have a laser printer set as default on a Windows 10 laptop. In Mozilla, when I select print, that laser printer has the green default check, but Mozilla defaults to Microsoft Print to PDF instead. How can I get Mozilla to accept the default printer without deleting Print to PDF which I do sometimes use but don't want as default? Image attached--it auto-checks PDF but you can see the laser listed above it is the default.

Starting this morning I'm getting a weird error message when I try to share articles from things like Daily KOS from my email. This is the message: "App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions."

  I have no idea what that means and I don't see any references to it in the community answers. Suggestions?

Thanks.

Hi, I just refreshed Firefox on this site https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings because my browser was getting slower and recommended that to me with a little Pop-Up at the bottom of my screen. I first read through the whole page and it clearly says that I will not lose my booksmarks, but exactly that happened. I already read through most support articles, but they all mention a second profile in about:profiles but there is just one. The bookmark folder is empty in this profile. Does anyone know how I can get them back? Thanks

I can not log in to my bank to do on-line banking. (M&T Bank). The page simply will not display with Firefox, yet I have no problems at all on Chrome, edge etc.. I think you have gone too far with your blocking. I tapped on the shield icon and the bank has all of its security credentials correct. I followed your "help" and basically you say that if I turn the setting down, a hacker can get into my banking. Yet the other browsers have no issue with me, nor does the bank itself. I'd hate to leave a browser Ive been using for many years, and one I really enjoy the interface, but every time you do an update, I lose yet another function. Can this be fixed?

My thanks in advance. Tom Koch

I use Firefox on a daily basis. It's open 24/7 on my PC and has 7 pinned tabs because I use them all almost everyday - they are mostly e-mail. It's set to auto-update and I think it recently updated to version 80. Ever since Facebook announced the removal of Facebook Classic and rolled out a Messenger update yesterday, I have been getting weird memory-related issues. Since I don't use Firefox exclusively, I just minimize it but it's always running. When I maximize it back to use it, the Facebook pinned tab does something crazy and all my other software start complaining that Windows ran out of memory and sometimes even crashing them though Firefox doesn't and the Facebook page looks garbled like its CSS gets corrupted. I am using the new Facebook - the one that looks like an app - in Dark Mode. The issue only happens when I use Facebook. The issue started happening yesterday.

Important note: this only started happening yesterday. The only thing that changed was the update to Firefox 80 and the roll out of the new Facebook Messenger update. This PC is rarely shut down. Also, when I am using the network (like downloading games from Steam or Epic Games or GOG Galaxy), the issue worsens and Explorer crashes and closes everything in my notification area.

Current workaround: I closed the Facebook pinned tab and everything seems to be working fine.

Specs: Firefox version 80 (no plugins) Windows 10 version 2004 Core-i7 4790K, 32Gb RAM, SSD + 19 Terabytes total HDD NVidia RTX 2070 Super with latest Game Ready drivers

Has the behaviour of Firefox with regard to caching style sheets changed in the newest version?

I ask since I develop with Visual Studio and browse the development build with Firefox. Hence the URL will be similar to:

http://localhost:55223

If I modify a css file in the build and refresh the page in Firefox it does not change. It never changes even after a CTRL+F5, nor after starting a new session.

If I browse the site with Edge it does pick up the change instantly after tapping F5 to reload. To see the changes in Firefox it's necessary to rename the css file to force a reload of it.

This only seems to have started happening since the latest build and makes it impossible to use Firefox in the development environment. Is there a "hack" for the settings to force a reload?

Evidently when setting up Firefox and importing from Chrome my ID's and passwords, there were some pretty old ones in there. Now with Firefox when I go to a website to login it presents a popup offering a selection of saved ID/PWs for this site. On Chrome, and even Edge, I could just arrow down to an old one and when highlighted hit Delete to clean these out, without having to search for them in a different place to manage that.

How can I do this the easy way with Firefox - an extension or option somewhere?
