I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

Cannot bypass "Secure Connection Failed" when access an internal corporate device

Hi, We currently connect to a vendor devices admin page that is inaccessible via Firefox because of the following error "Secure Connection Failed" (Error code: SEC_ERROR_INADEQUATE_KEY_USAGE) and won't present the option to proceed via the "Advanced" option. Long story.... The vendor is aware of the issue and as the configuration page is always accessed internally and uses TLS in some form they do not want to allow us to make any changes to uploading our own certs.

Anyway recently I was made aware of a keyboard shortcut to force firefox to bypass the error screen and force a connection, however I have not been able to find it since on the Shortcut guide for firefox. Can anyone provide me with this shortcut, It will save having to switch between multiple browsers.

Thanks is Advance,

Suddenly and while Firefox was open I lost access to Reddit, all it now shows is a black page with the word "Blocked" in it. I've disabled addons, tried a Private Window and am about to do a cache flush. I'm not banned from Reddit, I can still log in on Edge and on Android apps no problem and Reddit seems to be the only page that is having this issue. There doesn't seem to be a ban or block list in Firefox that I can find, I'm at a loss as to why this has suddenly happened.

I use Kaltura to record lectures and post them to my course at the U of Utah on Canvas. This semester, Firefox will not allow me to open "my media" where the Kaltura recordings are posted on Canvas. I get the following message: It seems your browser is blocking 3rd party session cookies which are required for the Kaltura application. To resolve this issue, please update your settings to allow 3rd party cookies.

I copied the Kaltura web address 670542.kaf.kaltura.com that I can see in Chrome and pasted it into a Chrome browser and it goes to my recordings in Canvas when I use Chrome. The same site doesn't work in Firefox. How do I unblock Kaltura third party sessions? Thank you.

Hello, I've had this problem before I believe and I had to change something in about:config to rectify this issue but cannot find it nor know exactly how to search for it.

I have two Microsoft Online accounts, Account A and Account B.

When I go to a website I am prompted to pick an account and I can see Account A and Account B. I then enter my credentials for Account A and I'm in, great.

I then go to another site where I need to use Account B, but I don't have the chance to pick Account A or Account B because I'm presented an error because the new tab is trying to use Account A.

How do I stop this?

I have two desktop computers and both Firefox accounts are in my name. I have had this site up for years. Now when I click on one specific web site it won't come up unless I got to Firefox's web browser and click on the three bars, and under my name click on sync now. Then the site comes up. The problem is I have to do this each time, on each computer. I have tried all kinds of troubleshooting to no avail. Help.

Hi,

tab groups on Chrome/Edge really help me in my work. Once one subject is complete, I close all the related tabs. But I am a Firefox user. I do not want to move to a Goggle or MS product that wants me to sign in and collate all my data in one place.

I do not want to use a plug-in - I trust the code that Mozilla writes but struggle to trust code that a third party writes and also has a "Not monitored by Mozilla" banner.

As FF had this feature in the past, are they adding to the roadmap to bring it back in the future?

For the last 6-8 months, I cannot check out (make a purchase) using Paypal on my Windows 10 computer using Firefox. Paypal works fine with Explorer. But Firefox, which I prefer for all other purposes, just goes into an endless spiral if I click on "check out with Paypal". For all and any online vendors.
