I have Firefox 103.0.2 and have enabled the use of style sheets in about:config. I have a CSS style sheet userChrome.css that is giving me color at the top heading and in the tabs, except for the active tab (is white)

I'll list the CSS and see if you can give me some guidance in what i need to do to put some roundness in the top corners of the tabs. the UserChrome.css file .titlebar-color{ color: AccentColorText; background-color: AccentColor; } .tab-background{ border-radius: 5px 5px !important; margin-bottom: 0px !important; } .tabbrowser-tab:not([selected=true]):not([multiselected=true]) .tab-background{ background-color: color-mix(in srgb, currentColor 5%, transparent); } menupopup > menu, menupopup > menuitem{ padding-block: 2px !important; min-height: 0px !important; }

root{

--arrowpanel-menuitem-padding: 2px !important; }

The whole top is solid color (same as Windows color, which is ok by me. However, it would also be nice if there were a dividing line or separation between the menu on top and the "tabs" below. Any ideas would be great! Thanks!! Vern

Hello,

I just recently went from Brave browser back to the old days on Firefox but there is one thing that I miss and I cant find any information anywhere about that when I opened new tabs on Brave it didnt switch to the new tab directly. Sometimes I wanna open alot of links from a page but its a real hazzle here when I need to go back to the old tab again everytime. Is there a setting for that anywhere?

Kind regards

I have recently set Outlook Mail to send desktop notifications when email is received. This works when the setting is on. However I have noticed twice in 3 days the setting has been turned off- but not by me! This is unacceptable. I would be grateful if you can advise me of anything I can do to ensure that when I change a setting/preference in FF that it stays changed until I select a different setting myself. In the case of email it is important as may miss something important. Thank you,

So I have the tab bar hidden in 1.08. I have it going to self made userChrome.css file. This is the only thing in that file:

  1. TabsToolbar { visibility: collapse !important; }

Issue is now I have no close button along with the other usual buttons with it. So what do I need to mod in that file to get them back?

Thanks

When I am in 1 window, I have multiple tabs open, but when I hover over the Firefox logo in my taskbar, the tabs appear in different windows that have each tab but not the other tabs from the window I am on. Like every individual tab has its own window. This has never happened to me before, only started happening today.

I use Firefox on a PC to access Facebook (website, not app). This week the Messenger/Chat feature stopped working. I click the icon and it opens but nothing appears in the box, it just hangs. There is an option to open in its own window, but that also is blank - no past messages, no contact names, no ability to start new message. When I log onto Facebook in Edge, Messenger works fine in Facebook.

I've tried everything I found on the internet for this issue - updated and refreshed Firefox, cleared history/cache/cookies/site data, uninstalled and reinstalled Messenger, refreshed Facebook to initial settings, used Firefox in troubleshooting mode, reset everything, turned off browser, turned off my computer, used shift key to reload tab - nothing has worked. There are some instructions about stuck cookies, but I didn't understand them so I didn't try that one thing. I've gone into every menu I can find to try to figure out this issue, which isn't the end of the world, but I would appreciate some other ideas for what is suddenly causing this. Because now I have to redo all of my settings and preferences and logins and the problem still isn't fixed.

Dear Firefox Team, good morning.

I hope you are doing well and that you are all healthy.

Guys... while looking for a way to measure the performance of our site, we came across the Core Web Vitals (CWV) some time ago. These are Google KPIs for measuring the user experience on a page (https://web.dev/vitals/#core-web-vitals). Unfortunately, some of the KPIs (like the Largest Contentful Paint or Cumulative Layout Shift) are currently only accessible using Chrome and it's preformance API. That's a pity, because there are also many people using Firefox who visit our site... and it would be interesting to have such KPIs as well.

In an article by Cloudflare (https://developers.cloudflare.com/analytics/web-analytics/understanding-web-analytics/core-web-vitals/) we recently learned that Firefox is also planning to expose the metrics used in the CWV... only the "coming soon" from the article is a bit vague. That's why I'm contacting you to get some more information on that topic. Do you perhaps know whether the topic is planned and will be tackled this year?

Thank you for your attention. Best regards, Carlos

So, whenever I open Firefox it will act normally and then after a second close by itself and when I reopen it, it will be in remote mode. I know how to fix this via about:config and do this every time, but I would much prefer a permanent fix, nothing else on Firefox or my computer indicates something else is going on, its just this. I've even at one point uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and it didn't help.

Firefox logging me out of all sites when I "delete history"

Hello,

this problem started happening around 3 or 4 days ago.

Usually, at the end of the day or before I close Firefox, I "delete browsing history" BUT only the "today" history. I know it's a weird habit (lol), but at least it logs me out of all recent browsing while keeping my sessions with older websites active (typically these older websites include stuff that I use frequently like Outlook, Google/Youtube, Twitter & other social media, Spotify, and a few other sites).

The other reason I do this is that I like my "recent history" to be ordered the way I like, so I can use it kind of like a "bookmark list".

The problem: Since about 4 days ago, each time I "delete history", ALL my accounts are signed out. Note that I don't have the option to delete cookies upon closing checked, and whenever I close Firefox without deleting history the sessions appear to be active.

I think 3 or 4 days ago there was a Firefox update? I remember at the time I was shown the extra tab with the release notes, but I didn't pay much attention. However when I noticed the issue, which was the day after, I assumed it was a new feature of the update that caused all these websites not to recognise my browser and thus ask me to log in again.

So just before going to bed, I tried 1) clearing my history for the day as I usually do, except 2) instead of closing directly after, I would go to the sites I want to remain logged in (in this case I just did Outlook, Youtube, Twitter, Facebook, Tiktok and Spotify), log into my accounts, and then close the browser.

So the following day, it worked "as usual"... almost... that is because when I deleted my history of the day, it logged me out of everything again. But in the "recent history" list, it showed the updated list (with the websites I re-logged into the day before).

So I can't guess what is happening, other that something is messing with my cookies each time I delete history. I even went to check manually to see if I still had the session cookies stored in Firefox and it appears to be the case.

Yesterday I also tried logging into a Google, waiting a few hours, and only deleting the history of the past hour, but the same thing happens, I instantly get logged out.

Additional info: when I "delete history" I only check the first five options (those under history) and not the lower two (under data).

Thanks for your help, and sorry for my English !

I have it set in setting to open in Firefox. it is continuing to automatically download all PDFs and it is eating into my data! please help. I have to get this to stop or I will no longer be able to click on any PDFs with Firefox anymore. I have also tried setting it to always ask, but if I do that and then tell it to open, then it STILL DOWNLOADS THE FILE! I cannot understand why anyone would ever want files they just wanted to read to just randomly download. I am a genealogy researcher and used to click on dozens of PDFs a day to read, now I can't with Firefox or I won't have internet for half the month after I use up my data. There has to be someway to stop this, I don't like other browsers, but right now, if it involves a PDF I have to use a different browser. (also quite annoying to have to delete multiple files that I never wanted to download - I was using Firefox to pay a bill and downloaded it SIX times) Please help!

When I click the reload button or press CRTL+R, I expect firefox to return to the top of the current page and reload the current page.

But lately (a few months now) firefox does not return to the top of the page, it stays at the position that I'm currently viewing and reloads.

I tried starting firefox in safe mode by holding the shift key, and it still shows the same problem. I even tested this on another computer (not mine) with the same result.

If this is a new feature of firefox, can I turn it off?

thanks

I can no longer use Yahoo Mail on Firefox and have had to move to Chrome and Bing in the short term.

1) Contacts no longer show up when starting to compose a mail

2) Writing a mail - the CTRL key no longer work. CTRL I opens a Page Info CTRL B Opens Bookmarks etc....

3) None of the buttons work at the top -Move -Delete -Spam

Basically, Firefox is useless for Yahoo Mail now!

Firefox is normally the best, but not yesterday or today.

Hope it can be fixed soon.

I've been unable to play twitter videos at all. For videos and audio posts on other sites, there's usually a delay for a couple seconds before it plays. I disabled all my add-ons and it made no difference. If I try to play 2 different things at once, both of them will chug if play at all.

Does anyone know what the cause might be? I tested videos and audio in another browser and they work fine.
