Ever since yesterday, scroll click (I use it to scroll through websites) has stopped working in Firefox. Works in in programs, other browsers, etc., just not Firefox.

Whats weird is it still registers a click when I use it, so I can lick on links with it if I want, but the function of scrolling, either by clicking once and using my mouse to go up and down, or by clicking an holding, no longer works.

I've tried disabling add-ons, incognito mode, nothing seems to work.

Hi, I'm a very happy long time Firefox user. I use the extension "Dark Background and Light Text" so that my webpages are much more easy on my eyes. The extension works everywhere but in "support.mozilla.org".

How is it possible to have dark theme in Mozilla's support pages too?

Thank you very much. Prayan

Hello. I wanted to secure my Firefox account and add two factor authentication.

But two-factor authentication does not work with the Yubico Authenticator Android app for generating the 6 digital temporary codes for logging in that I use.

When I add a firefox account to my Yubico Authenticator application for Android and generate a 6-digit code, when I want to add it and confirm it on the firefox settings page - it does not work and the code entered is unrecognizable. This is why I am unable to finish adding two factor authentication.

Can you check it and update and support the Yubico Authenticator application from Android?

Regards.

When i visit microsofts website to download windows 10 iso it redirects me to download the media creation tool which complete bloatware nonsense, the redirect happens because im connecting to their website while using a windows device and their websites knows that by inspecting my useragent, when i visit the same website from a virtual linux machine im not redirected and can directly download the iso, this is utter bullshit obviously. is there any extension or a config tweak that i can use to temporarily edit my useragent so websites beleve im using linux while im using windows and vise versa?

Dropdown lists are not displaying their contents when selected on certain websites, including eBay.

I have tried using Troubleshoot Mode and the dropdowns are still not displaying.

Here's an example where I am seeing this behaviour: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/255536264049?var=555488018135

When I select the Resistance Level dropdown, nothing happens. It's the same for any listing that has a dropdown.

This issue occurs in both RPM and Flatpak instances of Firefox.

I have tried the same page in Chromium browser on the same computer and the dropdown functions correctly in that browser.

I have also noted the same behaviour on other websites, such as train booking sites, but I don't have any other examples to share at the moment. It isn't an isolated eBay issue anyway.

Any ideas? Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Greetings!

I would like to be able to open selected links via the search tool with CTRL + Enter, like it is possible on most browsers. Basically, I do CTRL + F, select a text which brings me to a link I was looking for, and do instantly CTRL + Enter to open this link. Currently, this shortcut only toggles the ability to see all matched texts and doesn't open the link.

Do you know if it's possible? Thank you!

Hi friends, I need to watch Offline a series of professional videos from a website I study with. I'll be in a place with no internet for a while so I wish to know how to use the "work offline" modality to do that. Can the browser "remember" videos in the same way it remembers visited page?

I remember in the 90s / 2000s was possible to "save" pages to read Offline later on... Is that still possible?

Thanks

I'm currently attempting to try out userChrome.css customization, but my profiles folder doesn't exist (I'm on windows 10). Trying to open the folder gets me the message that "[Folder name] is unavailable," and when I try to navigate there by getting to the appdata\roaming folder, there just isn't a Mozilla folder at all.

I've already tried a few things, specifically:

- making an account via typing firefox.eve -p into the windows + r folder
- I've never deleted anything from the appdata roaming folder, so I wouldn't have accidentally deleted it
- restarting my computer (+ updating windows)
- reinstalling firefox

I did attempt to show hidden file extensions in windows as well. Admittedly I'm not entirely sure if that worked, but it was something I tried. I've also attached images of my appdata roaming folder (the section of it which should have a mozilla folder), and a pic of the message I get when I try to open the folder.

Any help would be appreciated!

I am using a Dell Inspiron 3847 with the standard keyboard which came the system years ago

Recently, when viewing a large online page, when I try to scroll down, the scroll doesn't start until about two seconds after I press my scroll key (which is the lower-middle key of the 4 keys between my right-hand "Ctrl" key and the "0" of the 10-key keyboard at the far right of the keyboard).

This delay started happening a few weeks ago. I do not know whether something I did caused it.

How can I scroll my view starting immediately, rather than having to wait two seconds for it to start?

On 10/16 I reported here a corrupt session file that broke Firefox. Finally resolved for the most part.

Firefox sync sessions?

Today, I launched Firefox 106, and all my pinned tabs were missing, on several differently customized profiles with the same session.

I reverted back to Firefox 105.03, and the pinned tabs on all those tested profiles reappeared.

Can somebody check this out? It may be a coincidence, but this is too close for comfort.

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.

I am shipping a broken computer back to the manufacturer. I had installed Firefox on it using my Firefox account. Since I have used the Firefox password feature to store all my passwords, I'm concerned that someone at the manufacturer could access my passwords. (The computer refused to boot, so I was not able to scrub it prior to sending it back.) My question is this: if I change the Firefox password on my home desktop, will my passwords on the returned computer be protected?

Thanks for any help!

Amazon Sign-in problem started on 10-15-22. Amazon does not accept my password and asks me if I would like to receive a text message for verification. There is no yes or no selection displayed. I select resend text and I am given a telephone number for Amazon customer service. I go thru a 15 minute security verification process and Amazon tells me if I do not answer any questions correctly, they will cancel my account. On the 2nd time I contacted Amazon, I was told to use Crome browser and not to use Firefox.

This problem happens with my personal computer (windows 10) only. My Android phone using the Amazon app works with no problems. I can also use Crome browser on my computer and Amazon works fine.

Any suggestions ? Thanks
