Since a few days, when I visit Google Maps, after completely loading the page (roads and buildings shown for a brief moment) the map becomes wholly black with just captions still readable.

Doing the following didn't fix: Restart Firefox. Update Nvidia Drivers (updated yesterday to 466.11, didn't resolve). Disable every add-on and setting default theme. Disable Hardware Acceleration from settings.

THIS temporarily fixed: Entering Firefox Troubleshoot mode.

So I assume the problem is in advanced settings. There are TONS of settings there. Any ideas? I 'd rather not go through a Firefox Refresh losing all site permissions/fine tuning for cookie settings/blocked content for every site made in years. I'm on Firefox 88, Windows 10 64bit ver. 2004, GeForce 950M, Core i7-4720HQ, 16GB RAM.


I put "again" in the title since another question about this is marked as solved for Firefox 68/69. Needless to say, I tried everything from that discussion (such as switching gfx.webrender.all), to no avail for the present issue.

I just updated to Firefox v.89.0. When I open up a new tab, I get my Bing search engine with a text box in the middle of the page. When I start typing in this text box, my typing automatically goes instead into the address text box. Prior to this version of Firefox, my typing stayed the in Bing (or Google, etc.) search text box. I've tried to look up solutions which sent me to About:config keyword.enabled and other settings but nothing I've tried fixes this problem. I want my search in the larger (Bing) search text box, not in the address (urlbar) text box which is much smaller text. As I said, prior to this version of FIrefox, my typing stayed in the search text box and didn't automatically get moved into the address text box. Please advise.

Hi there,

I have tried to change the firefox default colours. I have tried color.firefox.com and userChrome.css, but I cant get to --in-content-primary-button-background:

   host, :root { 

--in-content-primary-button-background: rgb(119, 0, 255) !important; }

neither rgb(119, 0, 255) nor #7700ff seem to work.

How can I change this value?

Kind regards, Ben

After FF89 every time I type something to the Web Search field on Firefox Home, the text is being typed in address bar instead of the web search field. This is greatly frustrating, because it gives suggestions as urls from browsing history instead of strings typed previously in the web search field.

Good morning. My Firefox appears to have updated overnight and now my menu bar is a light grey colour instead of it's original black. I want to reset the menu bar colour to black because I now have no contrast between it and my tabs. I have searched the help articles but none of them tells me how to do this. I am directed down the path: settings> extensions and themes> manage your themes.

Unfortunately I can see no way to 'manage' this theme. I would mention that I am a native English speaker but any so called 'discussion' of this issue uses what I call 'geek-speak' which is unintelligible to a non IT professional.

I would be most grateful for someone to explain to me in simple terms (ie keystroke by keystroke) how to re-set my menu bar colour to black, whilst noting that the text for (file, edit,view etc) needs to then be white rather than the pale grey which it has become.

As an after thought, does anyone know which developer it is that thinks it a good idea to mess with my original view settings during an update. It is NOT helpful and, quite frankly, really annoying.

Many thanks in advance to you wizards out there Chris

Every solution which I have found for Firefox 89 "Proton" so far which moves the Tabs Bar below the Navigation Bar (AKA "address bar"), with the Menu Bar above it, does NOT move the Tabs Bar below the Bookmarks Bar. The Bookmarks Bar appears to be overwritten and blank, and occupies space below the Menu Bar, Navigation Bar, and Tabs Bar. This empty space separates the three bars which are implemented and the content of the currently-selected tab below it.

Currently, my userChrome.css file is a copy posted by Corel-10 (?): __________________________________________________________________________________________________

Evidently, the text editor for this website does several things to the above original text that, frankly, seem unnecessary and undesirable. The .CSS file is just an unformatted text file, so what is the problem with simply copying its contents and pasting it in to the body of this post?

Which is also to say that I do NOT have a clue as to what any line in the file is meant to do, what effect it has, why it is even in the file at all, or why it is written in the way that it is. So DO NOT tell me that I "CAN" create a Cascading Style Sheet on my own when I cannot even modify one that has been provided.

On the face of it, something is missing from the above CSS text. What change needs to be made to the above content so that the Bookmark Bar will appear between the Navigation Bar and the Tabs Bar??

Thank-you very much for your time and attention to this request for assistance.

When I try and use the search bar in google to search anything, what ever I type appears in the address bar instead. Sometimes it trys to create a URL for what I am typing and fails.

I want to stop Firefox from using the address bar as the means of searching. I have read solutions online about changing things in about:config, however, this is not working fully.

It will only work it only works if I open up a new window. If I try and open up a tab it returns to trying to create a URL from my search requirements.

I have also tried the preference screen and nothing in there resolves the problem either.

I am using Firefox 84.0.2 (64-bit) on Win 10 Pro and the menu font size and toolbar icons are minuscule, even on my 32" monitor.

I found a fix for this same problem in Thunderbird, but I don't see any way to make the menu fonts and toolbar icons bigger in Firefox. This has nothing to do with web sites, just the menu/bookmarks, toolbar icons, etc.

Thank you.

For about a week now, I have been having issues using netflix and youtube with firefox. I have tried answers provided in other questions, such as emptying the cache and clearing cookies - which works! But only until I leave the page or change what I am watching. Netflix is especially frustrating as it requires me to go to netflix.com/clearcookies every time I use it - which means I also have to re-log in.

I have no idea why this is happening and am getting increasingly frustrated. The problem appears in safe-mode (troubleshooting mode) and I cannot find a permanent solution. Any help would be appreciated!
