I just updated to 95.0. I use default Firefox home page with the Search bar. The background turned to black with this update. The background has also turned to black for some of my bookmarks or sites I go to. Settings, Language and Appearance, Colors, Text is Black and Background is White. I have never changed that. How do I get the background back to White?

I updated to the latest version yesterday and now my Bookmarks ,History and a few other things have gone into Dark Mode. I really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer. Is there anything I can do to revert back to the way it was? Thanks for any reply.

(This note is a reply to a thread that was started late last week. For some reason, I wasn't able to access the details again when I came back to it today.)


The problem is I'm having trouble accessing protected files from my employer.

A grey message box comes up when I try to do so that reads as follows:

"Currently in safe reading mode. This document cannot connect to:

https://learninghub.phsa.ca/courses/20165/react-adult-protection-curriculum-models-1-overview-of-legislation-and-documentation

If you want to enable this function, please check the Trust Manager preferences to disable safe reading."

When I go to 'Preferences' and click on Trust Manager, I'm still not able to access the protected files.

PS I was unable to take a screen shot of this grey box.

Nothing....can someone help me?

I just switched to FF and this is troubling.

Thank you SO much for you time.

Firefox would not finishing loading so I (stupidly) clicked "refresh firefox" not realizing it would loose add-ons, extensions, etc. It created an Old Firefox Data folder if that can somehow get it back to as it was instead of having to figure what add-ons I had & reinstall everything, etc. My Bookmarks still appear but I need the add-ons back!

Never had this problem/glitch ever before! When I attempt to create a new listing and attach 'my' photos, it only imports blocks of color (see attached image)! The only thing I can possibly think what might be happening is I went to the Sherwin-Williams website https://www.sherwin-williams.com/homeowners/color/find-and-explore-colors/paint-colors-by-family/SW9130-evergreen-fog and clicked on "Explore in Colorsnap Visualizer" - which did not work! (However, it does work in Safari and Opera!) We have tried everything to try to delete whatever we may have imported (a virus???), i.e. went to Firefox prefs/Privacy&Security and cleared/managed data (which continually repopulates so the clearing/managing seems to do nada); downloaded a new Firefox app...nothing stops this behavior in eBay (and don't know if this behavior shows up elsewhere). My eBay works fine in Safari and Opera with this situation.
