Using online recommendations I was able to force the general theme to white, however individual segments of the FF UI still retain black (see the images). I want to whiten them too. I saw a heap of color related settings in about:config. I set one of them, layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override, to 1 but that had no effect on the appearance of the said elements.

Hello, some years ago I found how to prevent FF to ask for the master password too often. Obviously, this setting involved the about:config editing. Now, I'd like to reduce this time because I'm requested for the master password only at FF launching and I cannot find the options I changed. I looked for options with the word "expire", but it doesn't seem to affect the situation. What was the option I changed? Or what is it now (in case latest FF versions have different options)? Thanks

Hi there,

I've got plenty of bookmarks organized in folders and sub-folders (never could wrap my head around using tags). Normally, hovering on top of a folder or sub-folder just opens it. However for some unknown reason, some folders just don't open on hovering. By contrast, opening the "Manage bookmarks" pane shows all bookmarks are there and functional. The issue only appears in the menus, and I'm not sure when it appeared exactly.

Already tried: Renaming faulty folders: no effect Moving bookmarks into a newly created folder: no effect Moving faulty folders into an already-working folder: works, except if the folder is the one containing the root menu.

Screenshots: A working sub-menu: https://user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net/uploads/images/2022-08-01-10-56-24-be01e3.png

I made the mistake of clicking update when the message said that I had not updated Firefox in a while. After the update, all saved login/passwords were gone. I never had a Firefox account so I couldn't sync. So this time I created one and have been going through and putting in my logins and passwords and selecting Save whenever I am given the option. But, when I go into preferences/privacy to view the saved logins, it is blank and says I don't have any saved logins....What is going on?

Each attempt to log in to my bank account, using Firefox browser straight up, results in an access denied refusal. If I go to Duckduckgo.com and search for my bank, I can access the bank account. I wonder if you have other complaints/comments to that effect, too. It is an aggravation and my bank, Navy Federal Credit Union (NFCU), did not have a solution but suggested I contact Firefox direct.

Here is a copied response, as an example:

"Access Denied

You don't have permission to access "http://signon.navyfederal.org/siteminderagent/forms/nfcu.fcc" on this server.

Update your information about Proton Mail from Canton, Geneva. It was Protonmail.com. It has been changed to proton.me, so my email address is [edited] @proton.me, [edited] @pm.me, or [edited] @pm.me. I like this company because my email is encrypted from the moment it leaves my computer until it reaches its destination. My problem is that you are telling me that my email address, [edited] @proton.me is not valid. It most certainly is valid and it works in my email. But signing into Firefox I was told my email isn't valid, and there's nothing but (hopefully) talking with you about it that could change your program's mind. Please update your program, because very soon protonmail.com won't get my email to me. The company has changed its name and how it does business. And I love Firefox because it is much safer and more secure than Gmail was -- they just pulled my account one day along with my contact list. At the time I was president of our community's Arts and Crafts Club with 170 members. It was very hard to write that month's newsletter. Please fix my problem.

Sincerely,

Simone Meeker [removed PO box information from public] [edited] @pm.me, [edited]@pm.me, [edited] @proton.me.

I am using Firefox 108.0.1 (64 bit) on a Macbook Pro. It looks like the latest update produced a change. When I look along the dock most, but not all, of the minimized browser windows show as Mozilla Firefox whereas others show the name. In the past, all windows showed the name (e.g., Oultook email, or name of the google doc, name of the website, etc.). Is there a way to fix this? Or is this a bug in the latest update to 108.0.1 that will be fixed with 108.0.2?

Not seeing the window name means I need to pull up every open window from the dock to see which window is which. Mostly an annoyance but a new annoyance.

I am experiencing big issues when using Quora on Firefox (note. ONLY with FF, no problems with Safari or Chrome).

1) when I type www.quora.com FF automatically convert it to it.quora.com. Impossible to readdress to international site.

2) It cannot understand I am already a registered user. Below a comparison btwn Safari (left) vs FF (right) login page both setted, for sake of comparison, to it.quora You can easily see two major problems here: the red sentence say it does not recognize me as a registered user; even if I manually enter my pw, the login blue button remains non clickable.

Again this happens only in FF.

I already deactived the antitracking feature on FF.

Hi everyone

I can no longer drag a bookmark to a folder and insert it where I need to in the folder, which previously was very useful.

Now when I drag a bookmark and try to insert it where I need to it defaults to inserting it as the first / top bookmark in the folder. Which means I have to drag it a second time to its desired position.

Please could anyone advise about how to get the functionality back.

Thanks in advance !

Is there a way for the new window animation in Firefox for Mac to be disabled?

Safari does not do this, but firefox has a... ~100ms animation for new windows that's extremely frustrating for those of us who do not use tabs (Apple's Exposé/Mission Control obsoletes them).

I haven't found a configuration in about:config, although I've been able to disable a few others.

I am using the latest version of Firefox with Mojave on a Mac.

Lately I have experienced slowness despite the fact that I didn't add any software and I have Norton checking for viruses. Recently I got a message "Your system has run out of application memory" when I had 5 tabs open in Firefox. I checked Activity Monitor and it showed Firefox using 1.16 GB. 7 other apps were open, the next one with the highest memory usage was Mail (465 MB). Activity Monitor showed 30 instances of FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content entries.

I attached a screen capture showing what Firefox was using in one of these instances. Is this "normal" with 5 tabs open?

I closed the open tabs and quit Firefox. Memory usage by Firefox went down, but after a short time the problem happened again.

A search on the internet showed lots of similar complaints about FirefoxCP Isolated Web Content. Is this a known bug? Any way to avoid this problem?

Thanks.

I have a problem with Firefox 107.0.1 that needs your expertise. I’ve used Firefox since version 12 with no problems.

My Macbook Pro (on Catalina 10.15.7) is running Spectrum’s (Charter) Security suite and requires installing a spectrum extension in each browser. The extension installs on Safari (my backup browser), but won’t install in Firefox. Spectrum app takes Firefox to the web site to download extension, but nothing happens. Site can’t install the extension. The link is below. What’s the fix? Thanks John Holland hollandhouse@woh.rr.com
