The tab bar should distinguish the active tab (in part) by removing its bottom border. When I restart Firefox, the tab bar displays correctly but before long that bottom border of the active tab reappears. Changing to a different theme doesn't help. All I can think of is that perhaps I have too many add-ons or bookmarks installed. (I currently have just under 50 add-ons.) What can I do to keep that bottom border off the active tab?

I put Firefox on 500% zoom one day and since that day its defaulted to 500% zoom when clicking on a video or just clicking into the tab from a different one. I managed to find an add-on that kept the zoom the same when going to new videos but the zoom still defaults to 500% when clicking into the tab. I've tried changing the default zoom to something else then changing it back to 100% and I've tried deleting cookies. It still does it in a private window with no add-ons enabled.

Thanks

After moving to Firefox 78 ESR, get/setCookieString() is no longer working. For example:

       if (cookieService != null) {
           cookieService.setCookieString(cookieUri, null, "CertCheckDone=1;", null);
           myTrace("cookie is " + cookieService.getCookieString(cookieUri, null));
       }
   }

Firefox is running in kiosk mode and this code was executed with a hook in browser.js. Can someone please help me with this? Are there APIs I can use in place of these or are the Webextension APIs the only way to set a cookie now? I have tried playing around and can load a temporary extension but it's removed when restarting the browser and this also has to run in kiosk mode.

I do not want and never requested "automatic upgrades". I want them stopped and if possible the last several "upgrades" reversed. How can I get this accomplished. It's bad enough that "google" has it's fingers in everything as it is without "upgrades" I don't want and didn't ask for, and have done nothing to make things work any better. In fact it's gotten worse. If anyone knows how I can contact firefox directly it would be most appreciated.

Looks like I need to rollback to Firefox version 84. Updated to version 86. However, printing from Reader View takes over twice the number of printed pages as Simplify Page function found in earlier version. The font in Reader View is much too large for efficient printing.

The two uploaded images print the same webpage article, but earlier Firefox version takes 16-pages, while version 86 takes over twice that many, 35-pages.

Are there about:config settings that can reduce font size in Reader View, or do I have to rollback to version 84?

On Youtube, on a clean, up to date version of Firefox 64-bit, Youtube will not stay signed in, either on its on board hotbar on the left, the main center console in and outside of individual video pages, or both. Attempting to sign in via the normal means usually sends the user back to the main page as if they had not signed in at all (and if the account is signed in for a given attempt, it will only remain so until the page changes, for example when a search is conducted or a video loaded), and the sign in button on the hotbar is completely non-functional. Additionally, Youtube's other functions such as commenting, saving videos, accessing video history for an account, accessing or creating playlists, etc, do not work at all on Firefox 64 in this instance. This remains the case even when all of the troubleshooting options, such as changing assorted cookies settings, cleaning the cookies that are stored, changing how cookies are stored and what sites have permissions to store or save cookies, changing which are deleted regularly and from which sites or how which are to be deleted is determined, running a clean install of the browser, running the browser as an admin, turning off all ad-ons, running the browser in safe or secret modes (and also these as an admin and not, each), adding Youtube as an exception for tracking protection, and so far as completely uninstalling and reinstalling the entire browser do not fix or change the problem. The problem is not persistent on Chrome or Edge, only on Firefox, and changing which Firefox account is attempting to sign in, or which other accounts (Google, Youtube, etc) are signed in also has no change. Another post with the same problem has determined the source to be Kaspersky Antivirus, however the only posted solution in that thread is to turn off the antivirus, which considering that doing so leaves one's computer unprotected is not actually a solution - I'm maintaining this thread in the search for an actual solution.

PS - While I will be contacting Kaspersky as well to see if we can come about a solution on their end, the fact that no other browser that has been tried replicates this problem, even in the presence of an active Kaspersky agent, indicates that the problem is not with their software, but rather with Mozilla specifically.

Hi. Has anyone ever had this problem where Firefox suddenly does not work even after reinstalling it?

I updated my Nvidia drivers to 461.40 and when I opened Firefox, it just came up with a blank white window.

I tried entering Safe mode by holding down the Shift button and opening it again but it just hung on the safe mode window that comes up. Tried pressing the buttons but nothing happened.

I thought it must have been the Nvidia update that's done this but I rolled back to the previous version and now Firefox won't even open. It just shows up as a process in task manager.

I've uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail.

Am I missing something?

Is there something in the old profiles that's preventing Firefox to open again?

I believe I was using Firefox 86, running Windows 10 Home.

I set the colors of visited links and unvisited links in [Options]-[General]-[Language and Appearance]-[Color].

If you want to take effect, you need to select [All] in [Use the color you selected above to overwrite the color specified on the page]

In this way, all styles of all website pages: text color and background color are all changed.

Is there a way to only change the color of the link, while the text and background colors still use the web page's own; or specify that only the domain name pages in the list list use the specified color, and the website's own default color is used for those that are not explicitly specified?

For some reason, my long column (about 1,000 bookmarks) have an intolerable indent space/empty area to the left of each entry...about 2-3 in long and for all bookmarks, so that I have to stretch out the names and reduce my main viewer window as a result.

   IF I try to just move the whole lot leftward, that cuts out the "bookmarks" with the black star as well as search bookmarks entry bar.  A long time ago, I thought it had a left right scroll tab at the very bottom.  All support entries talk about moving the whole column to the right side of the screen-what I need is 1) an ability to move all bookmarks titles to the left edge as much as possible while keeping orientation with the top "star/bookmarks".
   I do use a zoom button for browsing the web, but reducing screen size has nothing to do with the overly fat/wide bookmarks area-there has got to be a way to put it on a diet!!!

BONUS: if anyone knows on a Mac running High Sierra or any other os, how the heck do you increase size of other menus that don't respond to zoom (command + or _)..even ones not on Firefox? Any recommended zoom apps for menus intrinsic to macs in general?
