Hi folks, I had a problem with this back in June 2021 when my previously black background to the menu bar (bookmarks etc) changed to a washed out grey. Chris Ilias and dbben both replied, and Chris sent me a video guide on how to install Photon Colours, which fixed the problem, thanks. However, today the same problem has re-occurred - ie grey background. Unfortunately, when I checked in the Themes menu I found that Photon Colours is no longer there. Grateful if you could tell me if there is a new fix for this so that I can re-instigate the black background to the toolbar. Many thanks Chris

I always use the current Firefox on two Macintosh browsers running OS 10.14.6.

Recently (in only one of the computers), if I download a file, a pane containing recent downloads opens in the upper left-hand quadrant. This is distinct from the downloads portion of the "Library" area, and gets in the way of my ability to use Firefox efficiently.

I can't seem to find a way to keep this pane from repeatedly opening up as I download things. Can anyone help?

On the page: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/manage-downloads-preferences-using-downloads-menu#w_downloads-panel-automatically-opens it says: "Downloads panel automatically opens" "Every time you start a download, Firefox will automatically bring up the Downloads panel by default, . . . "

It never used to do that ! Having the Downloads panel drop down and just sit there covering a large part of the page every time I save a little picture is an extreme nuisance ! How do I prevent it from happening ? Please help ! Many thanks !

Hi,

is there a config option to prevent the showing of user/pw proposals when opening a website for which user account data is saved? When i'm logging into a website with already saved user data, i get account proposals (as ff saves the data "per domain", say if you have 3 accounts to one website, e.g. a test user, an administrator and a cms administrator, they are all presented where needed content may be...) see pict. I would like to opt out this behavior, as i have more than one website with 2 or more accounts.

The Firefox desktop browser default font is replacing all fonts on some websites, only title fonts on some others, and then leaving others unchanged. It seems random, and I can't stop the default font from taking over randomly on most websites no matter what I do. This was not happening until today, and no browsers or general MacBook Air preferences were changed between today and yesterday when I last used the browser on desktop.

Under Firefox Preferences » Fonts » Advanced, I've made sure to check the box to "Allow pages to choose their own fonts instead of your selections above", and I've unchecked it, and I've re-checked it, and the default is still overriding fonts on most websites.

I've quit and restarted Firefox 3 times.

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1710933

If i want to open files into an application i do not want the files to clutter up my downloads folder.

this used to work perfectly pre-v91.

i understand that some users were confused where their files went when they opened them incorrectly within firefox.

currently i'm using a python script to clear my downloads folder from the useless files, but i'd rather just not have to bother with it.

is there a way to get the old behavior back? im comfortable going into about:config and/or using a plugin if i have to.

My CSS has always been directed to two effects:

The latest update luckily spared the former, but not the latter! Anyway, this time I haven't been able to solve it on my own, unfortunately...

My current userChrome is:

And my "special" about:config settings, which I've customized over the years to set everything back to how it looked before the progressive updates, are:

It seems since Firefox 100 the address bar has taken to being white-on-white, making it nearly impossible to read. There isn't any issues with light themes. It doesn't matter if I change the Windows 10 default app mode to light or dark. Light themes have black text on white background, but dark themes have white text on white background. Any ideas?

I have set the Noto family of fonts to be the default font family but websites that don't specify a font or specify sans-serif or monospace get Liberation Mono. When I changed any option in the fonts settings, the entire browser becomes Liberation Mono. I want Noto Sans be the default font for websites and for the Firefox UI. I tried to fix it by preforming a Firefox Refresh, but it didn't work. I think the problem began after upgrading to Firefox 100 but I'm no 100% sure.
