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

When I go to settings/General/Default Zoom if I check zoom text only, on my facebook page why does it enlarges the the images & have no effect on the text? If I use the device settings +/- to reduce the the image I can get the font to a readable size but text on the left & right side of the page are still gone from the viewing area. Increasing obviously has no better results.

OK, I just tried unchecking zoom text only and it restored it to normal. I'm glad it's back to where was but the way it's listed in the setting seems confusing. If I check "zoom text only" that is the outcome I would expect,

When I first searched for help it returned 0 results, which is why I am posting it.

I ran into an issue with the Alpenglow extension conflicting with the Dark Mode extension.

On version 105.0.1 (It may happen on other versions, it's just that I only tested it on that version.), all of the default themes, ran into defaults where they tend to fallback to the Default Dark Theme, which, while totally usable, is not the theme I wanted. The Alpine Theme was the theme that I tested with first, but it's actually also an issue on the Light theme as well. Both themes tested were official themes that were made by Mozilla, not a third-party.

I have the home page (aka new tab page) pinned because it is the only way to get the home page to appear after closing all tabs with atleast one pinned tab active. One annoying thing I found is that search results open in the same tab, which causes the pinned new tab page to get replaced by the search results. This is now how bookmarks and shortcuts behave. Can someone tell me how to get search results (from the "awesome" bar) to open in a new tab ONLY when conducted from the home page/new tab page?

I am able to find the mailto setting easily. However, there are no clients listed to choose from, no gmail, yahoo, nothing. If I click "choose other" I'm expected to choose an application from my computer. I just want to be able to click a mailto link and have it go out through a new tab via my existing, free, yahoo mail account.

My boss uses Firefox and said he is having a repeat issue with his browser. The issue is that every few weeks Firefox undoes a setting that he has and we cannot figure out why. It could be when you update to a new version.


What happens is that he has file extensions for PDF and ICS files set to automatically open and instead they change to download instead. He then has to download one of each file type and manually change the setting back to auto-open. Again every 3-4 weeks this resets to download.

After I updated my ff browser to the current version, certain websites have had their text all messed up. I first tried restarting the browser and then my computer. Next I tried to purge all cookies. I then tried to remove all add-ons and then purged cookies again, but the issue still persisted.

Firefox version: 105.0.1 (64bit)

OS: Mac Big Sur 11.6

Any ideas on why this is happening or how to fix?

Firefox is hanging on to an ancient dead email address, which it uses automatically when replying in on line forms where I don't have the option of filling one in (form won't send because account is dead), or trying to get into dropbox, etc. (identifies me as not having access under the old email address because access was set up for my current email address).

 I have looked here but don't find the places to go as described at all:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/change-primary-email-address-firefox-accounts.

Where do I find Firefox's stored email address that it uses for functions as described above?

FYI, I use Thunderbird for email, but not Firefox. I have my proper email address identified as primary in Thunderbird, and the dead address and all emails completely deleted as far as I can find them. Am on Win 7; Firefox 105.0.1 at present, but this has been a problem for a long time. Thank you. Dave

Recently, files that I download from online have been going into Microsoft's very convenient little folder called, "Downloads."  ::: rolls eyes :::

At first, I chalked this up to being distracted and having not chosen the location to where I wanted something downloaded - I have always preferred downloading to a specific location of my choosing. However today, when I went to download a receipt, and thinking about where the best place was to put it, progress for the download was immediately displayed - I was never presented with a window allowing me to navigate to a location.

When it happened the second time, and finding another file I had downloaded a week ago in the "Downloads" folder, I went into settings. I discovered that under DOWNLOADS, in the box, "Save files to:" it has "Downloads." But below that, I have a checkmark beside, "Always ask you where to save files," as I have always done.

I cannot remove "Downloads" from the box. If I clik the "Browse" button next to that box, my only option would be to pick another location, which of course, will simply become another *permanent* download location.

Shouldn't my checkmark by "Always ask" over-ride what's in the "Save files to" box?

How do I fix this?
