Hey there, awesomes! I'd like to change my Firefox pdf viewer's background color (both sides of the pdf) to dark, currently it shows light gray (see `background_bg.png`). And here is effect I want it to look like (see screenshot from Chrome `wished_bg.png`). Thanks in advance (:

PS: I don't want to change my theme to dark. It seems I have to change my css, but I dunno which & how.

Message always pops up in WIN 10 saying Mozilla Firefox is not is not my default browser even though it is. I have decided to use Firefox over Edge as my default browser in Win 10 but every time I start Firefox a message pops up saying Firefox is not my default browser. I have gone to the next screen and confirm that it is. but each time I open and close Firefox the message reappears! I have gone on internet and tried all the solutions suggested like reinstalling, going into default apps through control panel, through the CMD prompt, etc and still no fix seems to work. The message is annoying to no end as each time I start Firefox I have to click through two extra screens to start using it. I have no problem with Chrome but I prefer Firefox because certain sites don't work well with Chrome for some reason and Firefox works well but this is getting annoying switching between apps or clicking these extra keys. I noticed a lot of people are having the same issue with WIN 10. I have no problems on my Win 7 computer but I am thinking of upgrading it and of course it will come with Win 10 so I want to solve this problem if I can now. Any new "fix" since last I checked? I have tried all so far suggested online with no success. I do note it is a it is a WIN 10 and Firefox problem. Is there anyone from MS or Mozilla that can help?

When I'm using FF on my Mac, Catalina OS, and click on telephone numbers in websites, they always open up Skype, which I don't want them to do.

Instead, I want them to take me to Facetime and dial the number there.

Is there some configuration in my Preferences or an add-on that is causing phone numbers to open Skype instead of Facetime?

What can I do to get it open Facetime and dial there instead of Skype?

When I use the Firefox v80.0.1 browser and enter a file: URL (i.e. "file:///X:/Path" ), the folder icons are missing from the sub-folders (subdirectories). All other icons appear to be present. The folder icons were present in past releases, so it appears to be this release. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Oddly, Adblock Plus is in my toolbar and works fine. Attached photo shows Adblock, but no Lastpass or Ghostery icons in my toolbar.

Ever since IE changed to tabs on top firefox coders followed like mindless automatons without any regard to/for Mozilla community and users. We are sick and tired of being ignored. We want/need tabs bellow address bar. Now, tell us how to simply get tabs below address bar or tell the coders to provide us with the option. And, we don’t care about any excuses as previously provided or outright ignored by them.

When I first downloaded and installed Firefox the other day, the initial screen showed a process to import bookmarks from other browsers. I followed the process and imported bookmarks from Safari, but apparently not successful. I only see Mozilla Firefox bookmarks. I tried again from File tab but in vain... (using iMac (10.15.6))

It's rather frustrating that simple and basic functions not working from the very start... (keyboard shortcuts to control video streaming are not working either)

Can someone enlighten me as to what may be the issue?

Thank you.

I have a laser printer set as default on a Windows 10 laptop. In Mozilla, when I select print, that laser printer has the green default check, but Mozilla defaults to Microsoft Print to PDF instead. How can I get Mozilla to accept the default printer without deleting Print to PDF which I do sometimes use but don't want as default? Image attached--it auto-checks PDF but you can see the laser listed above it is the default.

I have over 155 tabs in my bookmark. When I open all of them in Incognito mode, the CPU goes through the roof and even after an hour it never goes down! I never had this problem before.

When I open tabs 10 at a time, CPU is normal. Is there an addon that can automatically open "x" number of tabs at a time until they are all open?

I have used Firefox to access my credit union website. This has worked fine until recently. It might be the install of Firefox 80 that caused my problems.

The website requests uid followed by page for password. Entering password takes me back to a page to enter uid. This goes on for several iterations until I finally get in to the site or I give up and go to Chrome.

My environment is Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia/ Firefox Release 80.0 August 25, 2020.

I have no add-ons in Firefox. I apparently have a Shockwave plugin.

Starting this morning I'm getting a weird error message when I try to share articles from things like Daily KOS from my email. This is the message: "App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions."

  I have no idea what that means and I don't see any references to it in the community answers. Suggestions?

Honestly, I have no idea how to describe it. I loved how when I played a video on Firefox, it wouldn't pop up with that annoying video title whenever I changed my volume. Now, when I'm watching a video or playing audio, this happens. And, it doesn't even get it right most of the time! Like for example, it does this instead! That's not even the page I'm on!

Is there any way for me to get rid of this? Thanks
