Hi,

Ever since a while ago, some images are not showing correctly in Firefox. I must have gotten this issue in the last update(84.0.2) or slightly earlier. I tried resetting it, and used safe mode, but I still get the same issue. I don't know how to fix it at this point, and the only solution I have at the moment is to switch over to Chrome for important times, such as for online exams, but this is not ideal. Does anyone have a clue about what could be wrong, or am I doomed to use alternatives to Firefox during important times/just for viewing certain pictures?

Current Version: 84.0.2 (Auto-Update/Help -> About Firefox) OS: Windows 10

Thank you.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to log into Sling? I get a "A webpage is slowing down your browser. What would you like to do?" message and then the URL goes to "about:blank." I have no problem signing in on Edge, but I really don't want to go there. Ran CCleaner, made sure to clear all sling cookies, whitelisted sling for uBlock origin. (Running FB Container - does that have any effect?) Help?

Hi all, I'd be grateful for some help with themes. I've been using Firefox and this specific feature for years and never had any issues with it. On my new PC, themes are suddenly looking like they have only been partially applied. Every theme so far has done this, I've checked all the regular customization settings and I'm stumped. As you can see in the screenshot, the theme applies to the tab and search bar levels, but not to the top level that shows the page title and system buttons. I know it's a cosmetic issue but it is driving me mad. Is this a "feature" in a new version of Firefox to make themes look like this? It looks more like a bug to me :(

I'm on Windows 10, brand new install on a new machine, I've only synced my Firefox tabs/bookmarks etc but it already looked like this before I did that or added my usual extensions. Any help or explanation why it's like this now would be appreciated!

When I try to manage bookmarks, I get a confusing hierarchy of bookmark folders that shows the same folder in multiple places, and I can't open it to see the subfolders. It totally confuses me. Naturally, I tried Firefox Help.

When I go to Firefox Help, I don't know how to enter search strings to narrow searches. Anything I enter gets me hundreds of topics, including strings attempting to find out how to narrow searches. Encasing strings in quotes does nothing.

Right now, I need help managing bookmarks. For the future, I need to know how to use Firefox Help correctly. Thanks.

Dear Community,

I have a hand full of passwords I would like Firefox to fill out but stop asking me if I like to save logins and passwords every time I have to login on a websites.

Unfortunately, when I uncheck "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites", Firefox will stop "Autofill logins and passwords", even the saved ones.

Does anyone know a workaround?

Hopefully, Elmar

Currently testing an application in Mozilla Firefox and other browsers, but having difficulty customizing the scrollbar in Mozilla Firefox. The application scrollbar works fine in Chrome, Edge, Opera, except for Mozilla Firefox where I get a different behavior and I can't seem to understand. Two screenshots of the application are added to this message: 1. yes_scrollbar.jpeg 2. no_scrollbar.jpeg

The yes_scrollbar.jpeg is what I'm trying to achieve in Mozilla Firefox, however, I'm getting the no_scrollbar.jpeg as a final result.

Could you provide a guide regarding how to customize the scrollbar in Mozilla Firefox?

Before shutting down Firefox I deleted history/cache/passwords etc from the past day

I do this all the time but since I had restore previous tabs selected they always get restored when I start up again

However this time they weren't restored when I restarted

Without closing Firefox I navigated to the sessionstore-backups folder to see what was there but the files were only 2KB - much too small for the number of tabs.

So I installed ShadowExplorer & Shadowcopyview to see if I could recover older versions I was able to locate jsonlz4 files from a few days ago that were around 11000KB in size so I assumed they would have most of my tabs

However when trying to use the files nothing happens - I tried 2 different steps that I read here had worked for others

1 - Renaming previous.jsonlz4 to sessionstore.jsonlz4 , moving to the profile folder (deleting the old one first) and restarting FF

2 - Deleting sessionstore.jsonlz4 and copying the recovered previous.jsonlz4 / recovery.baklz4 /recovery.jsonlz4 / upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 files to the sessionstore-backups folder and restarting FF

I also repeated the steps after creating a separate profile

None of these worked so I tried examining the jsonlz4 files using https://www.jeffersonscher.com/res/scrounger.html but I got an error message 'Session history file contents could not be read?'

Now I've previously used recovered Jsonlz4 files to restore tabs with no issues but this time they won't work

I read here https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1189759 that updates may cause compatibility issues and the upgrade.jsonlz4-20201014125134 file indicates they was a recent update

The recovered file sizes indicate they contain data so I want to know how I can recover it - if not through FF then through some other software
