My appearance settings are set to dark mode but Firefox is only displaying in light mode. I've tried downloading various dark mode extensions to fix this, but they only seem to work on websites other than the firefox homepage or settings.

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

If I made a firefox account, will all my history be saved on this account or just the history after making this account? I am asking this because I am going to perform a clean OS installation and I need absolutely all my history.

Firefox was working fine after update to version 96.0. Firefox was no longer displaying Fonts correctly.

Interactive pages have become almost unusable. It is very difficult to navigate and fill in forms because most buttons and fields have no borders. The screen is mostly blank with just text and a few bits with borders. It is difficult to see where to click or add text.

I've tried resetting, running in safe mode and running with a fresh profile. None make any difference.

Just in the last week or so, Firefox has started reopening previous pages on startup. I DO NOT have that option checked in Settings. Is this a bug in the latest version? Is there some other setting I need to change so that Firefox will open on my designated home page (as it always has in the past)?

I just updated to 96.0.3 (64-bit). Now when I go to some sites, I am automatically redirected to https://ninkorant.online/, which I have never heard of. This has never happened before the new update and I can't figure out how to stop it. There is no longer an "Options" or "Preferences" choice on any menus. I just want to stop redirect or to block the site to which I am automatically redirected. Some "solutions" I get when I search this problem involve resetting my browser, which will eliminate my add-ons and bookmarks, and I want to avoid such a drastic action. Is this a glitch in 96.0.3? What can I do? Thanks.

Dear TS, Friday January 28th 2022 Firefox updated my Win 10 PC to version 96.0.3 and wiped out everything from the previous Firefox version. No bookmarks, History, or add ons, everything is gone! How do we get everything back? I have a recent backup using Acronis on an external drive and even copies of old profiles from 2016. If the data can't be retrieved I'm thinking the only option is to remove Firefox and attempt restoring it from the Acronis backup. Sincerely, Robert.

I just purchased a MeLe Quieter2. It was loaded with some version of Windows 10. I downloaded Ubuntu to a removable storage device (thumb drive?) and want to download the Ubuntu Operating System to my MeLe mini. I really want to avoid "bricking" my mini desktop at all costs. My ultimate goal is to have my mini totally Linux oriented with Firefox as my browser and removing all Windows software, all Google apps, all social media and anything else that wants to market to me, demand my location and generally futz up my system. Can anyone help?

Every time I tried to access my e-mail [or send e-mail], I received this Firefox error: "Server imap.earthlink.net has disconnected. The server may have gone down or there may be a network problem." I was able to send and receive small e-mails; but I was unable to receive somewhat larger messages, including information on how to join a very important Zoom meeting. After spending 90 minutes on the phone with Earthlink, I was finally able to access some [but not all] larger e-mails by going around Firefox and going to earthlink.webmail.com directly. But, the Earthlink tech support person was unable to detect what was wrong in Firefox. I was eventually able to join the end of the Zoom meeting. After the meeting, I then went back to Firefox and was able to get and send some messages, but I'm still getting the same error message - and I'm not sure what messages I'm missing. I sure hope someone can help!

I am using Windows 10 on an Aspire E17. After startup over the last month or more, I have found that Firefox is taking an exxxxxtremely long time to load - something approaching 10 minutes at time. I have the opening page set as Google and that seems to be the one that loads the longest, others pages less so. Some of this is also due to Windows' MsMpEng.exe, which is of the habit of hogging around 100% of memory resources according to task manager.

Any suggestions?

Firefox has been running fine for me for a long time but recently, like the last week or so, it has been crashing constantly. When I first boot up my computer, it will be fine for awhile and then it'll just crash. If I try to restart it then, it will either immediately crash or crash after a few seconds. sometimes it will hold together for a bit and then crash. I've had it crash when I've clicked to move to a new webpage, and I've had it crash when it is just idling on a webpage. I have already tried troubleshooting mode and it still crashed, so its not my extensions. Ive also tried to reinstall it and that has not helped either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
