I wanted to install a dark theme, which I did, but then i noticed something strange(screenshot), what even is this? Is this a bug? Is it intended? My dark theme accompanied by the default minimize, maximize and close buttons, I've checked other themes and even those recommended to me by default in the themes tab and it's the same problem.

Is this fixable?

For some reason I can no longer access a state website (https://legis.wisconsin.gov/) from my laptop, either with Firefox (my normal browser) or Chrome. I get the message that says my request has 'timed out'. However, I CAN access that site from my smart phone, using Firefox. I haven't intentionally changed any settings on my laptop. I have no problems accessing any of my other sites (Gmail, Facebook, etc.). Using Firefox version 93.0 and Windows 8.1

Media keys are not working on Firefox though they're working just fine on Chrome. I can pause playing media in an active tab only with space. I'm unable to use the seek back, forward and pause buttons. It's kind of annoying that I have to open the background tab where the media is playing and pause it with space or my mouse when I could simply hit the pause button while working. I've tried disabling and re-enabling media.hardwaremediakeys.enabled in about:config but nothing happened :( Thanks.

Hi,

I'd like to use keyboard media keys (play/pause, prev, next) to control Spotify web player and Youtube but they don't work. The option is enabled. I'm using Firefox 88.0 on Windows 8.1, so according to this article it should be supported. The keys work on other apps. I've tried in troubleshooting mode as well, no luck. Any ideas?

How do I get rid of Facebook Fence? It is blocking me from signing onto Fingerhut web site to pay my bill. I had to use Chrome instead, and since I could get on with Chrome that means it is Firefox. I tired to get it so I could get on but could not figure it out.

Since upgrading to Firefox 93.0 I am having problems with memory and low memory warnings. Playback is choppy and will freeze making the computer and Firefox unusable. I get " Firefox not responding" constantly. I like Firefox and want to continue to use it. Will you be issuing a fix? I hope that this problem will be resolved soon. Is there a way to restore a previous version of Firefox so that I may use the internet. Thank you, Steve

Hi I've updated to version 93.0 on a Windows 8 laptop. I try to support a website for a camera club that I'm a member of. The problem I'm having is that when I go to the website http://cranburydigitalcameraclub.org/ and try to click on any of the dropdown menus, nothing happens. e.g. Hover over Calendar and they click on Main calendar. I've tried this with Chrome and it works there. Another member has spotted the same behavior.

I'll guess that it is java related. Did something change recently? I know java hasn't been supported but this has worked for several years now.

thanks in advance Will

Hello, I have a Windows 8.1 Lenovo ThinkPad. I'm legally blind and need to use screen magnifier software (Zoom Text Fusion) in order to use a computer. I like Firefox. I've observed that Firefox has been updating software quite often. In fact, some days it's more than once. Can you please chill on that, limiting the updates to once a week or so? Every time Firefox requires me to update, my laptop freezes for some reason and I must reboot and open documents again and again.

I'd also like to bring to your attention that the text using Firefox browser was once black and crisp using my screen magnifier. Approximately eight months ago, it has changed to grey and fuzzy. This doesn't happen on all web pages but most. Can you please fix that also? The Fusion people say they can't do anything about this as "Firefox broke the accessibility by updating the browser". Can you please partner with them to get this straightened out? I need my black crisp text back! I also recommend you do Firefox software testing with folks like me who use this sort of software to be sure they play well with each other before releasing updates.

When using my screen magnifier, some of the magnified words disappear off of the screen. In order to see the rest of the words, I must pan with my mouse. This is not very efficient. Is it possible for you to work your magic so that words wrap to the next line automatically when things are magnified? This is possible when using my Note 5 phone using Chrome browser, haven't tried it with Firefox.

Please don't forget about folks like us. There are many of us who use screen magnifiers. Thanks!  :)

I just got my upgrade from Firefox86 to Firefox90 working, but the tab bar is completely missing.

I still use "old-style" FIrefox. From top to bottom: File/Edit/View menu Search bar Bookmarks Toolbar Tab bar

(yes, I AM old. I've been using Firefox since Version 1 and this particular style works for me, developers be damned.)

The tab bar is completely missing. Firefox knows how many tabs I have open (it warns me when I try to exit) but doesn't show any. The area that the Tab Bar used to occupy is simply empty.

Any ideas on how to fix? (Yes, I have done the Google.)

I'm running Windows 8.1 64bit, and a 64bit install of Firefox

Without exception, any time I try to update Firefox or close the program, it balloons its resource usage and then crashes.

Every. Single. Time.

I have submitted several crash reports over the years. What is happening and how do I stop it?

Also, why does it clear my clipboard? I Ctrl-C'd a url before closing it just now, and after it crashed and a restarted it, Ctrl-V was empty.

Used firefor for well over 10 years never a problem. but today i try to get google to load and i keep getting. the message below.


Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue

Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.google.com because this web site requires a secure connection.

What can you do about it?

www.google.com has a security policy called HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS), which means that Firefox can only connect to it securely. You can’t add an exception to visit this site.

The issue is most likely with the web site, and there is nothing you can do to resolve it.

If you are on a corporate network or using anti-virus software, you can reach out to the support teams for assistance. You can also notify the web site’s administrator about the problem.
