Firefox uses system High Contrast text color for websites

Hello, Firefox seems to be using my system's High Contrast text color to render websites. My High Contrast text color is a light grey, to contrast with a dark system background. However, many webpages on the internet have light backgrounds, so when Firefox uses this color, I can't read the text. I already have Options>Language and Appearance>Colors>Override the colors specified by the page set to "Never." This also occurs in a brand new profile with 0 extensions or addons in Safe Mode. I just want Firefox to display webpages "normally", i.e. with black text, without regard to the current system colors.

To reproduce: - Turn on High Contrast - Visit a site such as http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/ppois.html - Change system High Contrast text color to any color you wish - Notice that the text on the page also changes to the same color, even with the setting on "Never"

Is there any way I can get Firefox to ignore the system's text color settings? Chrome renders the webpage just fine with black text.

Since Flash is going to be EOL'ed by Dec 2020, wanted to understand what would be the impact to Flash applications. Would it just not load in a browser or would the user be greeted with a message simply saying that the Flash plugin failed?

My customers would like to get a good idea of what would happen to our product which has Flash components.

Thanks.

I'm using Firefox 78.0.2 and i keep getting notices to upgrade. But the last time I upgraded, Firefox changed the locations of my tabs from below the address bar to above the address bar and also changed the behavior of the address bar. It took me a couple of weeks to find the answers and get things back the way they were. I don't want to upgrade Firefox because I have no idea what it might change this time. Is there a way to keep Firefox from sending me upgrade notices when I don't want them?

I use Firefox for my office, and there are several URLs internal to my company that work with a single word.

For example: "xyz/12345" is the same as "http://xyz.company.com/12345" which opens the resource 12345.

This used to work absolutely fine until the latest update.

Current: 78.0.1 (64-bit) on MAC OS 10.15.5

Now, xyz/12345 searches google instead of navigating to the website. I do still need google search on the browser bar, as I use it frequently as well.

Having to type out http://xyz/12345 is an overhead that I would like to avoid.

Please suggest if there are any workarounds that could be used to get this working again.

Firefox Keeps Crashing After a Few Minutes

Last night firefox crashed but I just shut down my computer. Now today for the entire day firefox keeps crashing just after just a few minutes, regardless of what I am doing (youtube video, staring at google homepage, in firefox settings).

I read articles suggesting solutions. These are the things I have done to try and fix the problem but they didn't work:

1) I restarted my computer (shut down last night). 2) Performed the sfc scannow function, but found no corruption. 3) Did a Norton quickscan, then a Norton full scan (stopped after 700,000 files), no viruses. 4) Checked my display drivers, both were up to date (Intel and AMD). 5) Checked my network adapters, both were up to date (Intel, Realtek). 6) No Windows updates. 7) Firefox is up to date. 8) Tried safe mode, still crashed. 9) Refreshed firefox, still crashed.

I attached a list of my crash reports, I submitted them just now (didn't realize they didn't submit). I screenshotted it because I thought firefox would crash before I could copy them all. If needed, I can paste them one by one.

I downloaded Chrome, which I'm using right now and it isn't crashing like firefox. However, when I had firefox open at the same time, firefox crashed and caused Chrome to crash as well..

Any help is appreciated. I prefer to continue using firefox because I'm used to it and it has all my saved passwords. I'm scared of reinstalling firefox and losing my saved passwords.

There is print button on the bank site, and other websites, but all that happens when clicked is a blank page. Not a problem in other browsers.

When I tried to follow the printing problem instructions I am unable to actually view the entire Page Set Up window. (I did change the margins once and maybe I didn't reset them properly but can't see to find out.) I also tried restart in safe mode. Still can't view the top of the Page Set Up window.

I usually have 1 or 2 YouTube tabs open. At most, I'll have another extra tab. Despite me only using a few tabs, Firefox consumes ~1500 MB on average. Why is this, and how can I reduce it? Nothing taxing is happening, either. It's causing my fans to run audibly while I'm just watching a video.

I listen to Pipe Dreams on Pipedreams.org. and always played on Firefox with no problems up until July 12th 2020. Now they have changed their website and digitized all the music programs and the new program just sits there with a circle spinning around the PLAY button. I can play program on Microsoft Edge with no problems.

Firefox is always being updated so assume the latest add-ons codecs, apps etc are in there but obviously not one to play this program. So while I can easily use Edge, I thought someone, smarter than me, can figure out what's going on. Thanks

Apparently randomly, about every 2-7 days, all my extensions become disabled with no option to enable them again. I delete the compatibility.ini and all extensions.* files and the extensions are then enabled again.

I have tried creating new profiles, but it keeps happening. I have scanned for viruses. I have the latest versions of the extensions.

I sometimes *need* to run Firefox ESR v52.8.1 (64-bit) in parallel. I wonder if that could be the cause..?

Firefox v. 78.0.2 (64-bit) OS WIN7 (64 bit)
