I have recently updated to Firefox 106 on two Arch Linux systems. One of them has Firefox View enabled and working by default, another does not. I looked around and tried some options in about:config to enable it, however it did not work and I reverted the changes. I would like to enable Firefox View on this browser as well, and I would like to know how to enable it.

Any advice returned by Google seems to be obsolete or only worked perhaps in older versions of Firefox. The main idea of using userChrome.css to override the default styles for Reader View does not seem to work. My userChrome.css file does work on other items though (like removing the sidebar width restriction).

Whatever advice I find via Google perhaps cites outdated CSS selectors, but current selectors do not seem to be documented anywhere by Mozilla. Moreover, I cannot find any file on my local drive named aboutReader.css when using find or grep commands in bash, those this file name is alluded to when viewing a page in Reader View and then in turn viewing source on that transformed page.

Moreover, addons that would allow me to change the colors seem to be restricted in Reader View.

It does seem like something has changed in recent Firefox updates but I can't remember when I last saw, for instance, links in dark mode Reader View that were still pink (whereas now they are blue, and impossibly dark to see, especially when you are disabling as much blue light as possible through your operating system). I need a higher contrast color for links in dark mode Reader View so I can actually see them.

I can alternatively use the Tranquility Reader addon and have custom colors, but A) that addon does not work with the Automatic Reader View addon, whereby I can always have various sites appear in some sort of "reader view" whether the native one or Tranquility Reader, and B) hitting refresh when in Reader View will defeat some soft paywalls but this does not work with, e.g., Tranquility Reader, so I still would prefer to be able to custom colors in the native Reader View feature, rather than rely on an addon.

1. Where are the current styles for Reader View even documented? 2. Is overriding them now restricted? 3. Why did the link color change from pink to blue in newer versions of Firefox (this is a terrible accessibility bug)? 4 .Where is the alluded to aboutReader.css stylesheet actually stored on my computer (it doesn't seem to be a file on the filesystem in the Firefox profiles folder, it seems more like it is embedded in the Firefox binary/executable)? 5. Will Firefox settings ever allow us to set colors specifically for Reader View (I don't mean the override settings for all web pages, particularly web pages not being rendered in Reader View ... that setting does not help in Reader View, nor would it be the desired preference for pages not in Reader View)?

Thank you.

Once again Firefox adds a feature I don't want and can't disable. I want not to have a tab bar. They take up too much screen and get in the way. So I fond code that eliminates the tab bar unless there is more than one tab. Then the latest release addes the 'search tab' down arrow I neither want nor ever asked for and I can't get rid of it.

Why do you insist on doing this Mozilla? How do I turn this useless feature off?

On startup this morning, I saw the Colorways options. I tried a few, but decided to keep my Dark theme.

One of the first set of Colorways options was "no option," a circle with a slash. On the new Firefox View > Colorways page, that is no longer an option. I tried Settings > Manage Colors, to no avail.

The Firefox I'm using now has screwed up colors. I want to revert to the Firefox I had on startup. How do I do that?

Hey all, I just updated Firefox on PC and the updater asked a couple questions. I chose "Visionary" as the answer to a question because it suited me the best out of all the options. However, this also changed the colors of my browser menu and toolbar to green. The thing is, while green is a fine color, I would never select it as "my" color for anything ever.

I've tried to change the color in about:preferences, but nothing I can find seems to work. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I turned off Firefox updates because I'm sick and tired of having to download a new version at least once a week. So now I face a different problem. Every time I turn on Firefox I'm greeted by this annoying, unwanted pop-up spam message:

https://i.imgur.com/qFtXPXr.jpg (also see: attached image)

I want to disable this. I do not want to update, and I do not want to be reminded to update. Please don't waste both your and my time by replying "but you have to update". No I don't. I have nothing sensitive on this PC so even if I got infected by a virus or whatever because it's not the newest version, nothing bad will happen to me. At least nothing I consider as bad as having to update every single week. If there is no solution possible, I will simply stop using Firefox and use a different web browser instead. Thanks.

Firefox 103 screws with website zooming if you use the "Make text bigger" accessibility setting in Windows. 150% for example now zooms in a lot more with the accessibility setting in Windows set to 120%.

How do I undo this change so that 150% is 150% and not bigger than 150%? I had all my frequented websites set up how I liked it and now this comes along and messes it all up >:V at the moment it seems like 120% Firefox + 120% Accessibility is similar to what 150% in Firefox was like but it's not exactly the same. I've now gotta go futz with zoom levels for each web page I frequent again to find what looks most comfortable for each one.

Also this change greatly modifies consistency when it comes to the granularity of zooming. For example, what is 100% zoom when Accessibility is set to 120% so that I can avoid filtered scaling being applied to pictures? Why is the in-browser percentage indication not accurate with the level of zooming actually being applied?

The zoom level I choose is no longer the zoom level applied, there is now a multiplier in effect. So 50% isn't 50% anymore, 60% isn't 60% anymore, 70% isn't 70% anymore, 80% isn't 80% anymore, 90% isn't 90% anymore, 100% isn't 100% anymore, 110% isn't 110% anymore, 120% isn't 120% anymore, 130% isn't 130% anymore, 140% isn't 140% anymore etc.

A website that looked good at 133% can no longer be viewed at 133% if the Accessibility setting isn't also 133%.

Not a fan of whoever decided to implement this seemingly without a way to turn it off.

Only the outline of each tile is present on screen, but the rest of the tiles are empty and nothing happens when you click them.

I've been trying to get a video to play for over a day now, drm-controlled content is checked but firefox won't install the widevine plugin, it just keeps saying that it will install shortly. I even deleted the cache in hopes to fix the problem, but it did nothing. What can I do to fix this? Also, and I don't know if this is a related problem, some websites just don't show up. It will say they are loaded but all I get is a blank screen (dailymotion and instagram so far).
