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Whatever advice I find via Google perhaps cites outdated CSS selectors, but current selectors do not seem to be documented anywhere by Mozilla.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

In the past, I have not had problems logging into PayPal via Firefox on Windows.

Today, I can get to www.paypal.com but when I try to log in (takes me to https://www.paypal.com/us/signin), my browser window just shows the circling image.

When I tried another browser (Chrome) I got to the login just fine. My Firefox is up to date (105.0.3)

What changed to give this issue and how can one resolve it?

The timezone on my Gmail and a few other sites automatically changes to Africa/Abidjan time on Firefox. This is not an issue with my device as I've checked the timezone on system preferences and it is correctly set to my local time. Additionally, the timezone appears to be correct on other browsers. I checked Firefox on another device and found the same problem.

What is with Firefox lately. Endless problems with screen sizing, light dark mode. But what is really pi**ing me off is the inability to connect to certain web pages. No I don't have a any spyware or viruses (I have scanned with 3 different programs) and I have no problems with connecting to the pages with Chrome or Edge. I'm getting the error messages

Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue Firefox detected a potential security threat and did not continue to www.amazon.ca because this website requires a secure connection.

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

And I get the same warning with Amazon, eBay, my email client Shaw Mail, Google Search, and several other pages that require a login. Is there anything I can do to fix this as I'm really starting to rethink my preferred web page browser?

When refreshing and clearing cache using CTRL+Shift+R, browser should reload all assets. However when refreshing site with @import(ed) style sheet, it does not update.

The workaround is to open the style sheet in a new tab (e.g. https://my.web.com/assets/custom.css) and run refresh + clear cache there CTRL+Shift+R, which loads the updated style sheet.

Then, upon refreshing the original site (https://my.web.com), the CSS has been updated.


Is this a bug or expected behaviour?

With version 105.0.3 (32-Bit) I have only trouble. Sorry to say, but most pages are not working. So I will probably now change to Chrome. Because I need a browser working and not 80% of addresses not. I don't understand the newer philosophie. I was enthusiastic Firefox user. But this year each version has more problems for me, using Windows 10. Each page I open I get "Increased safety risk". And that could not the world of security of today. I think Banks, Insurance and Healthcare don't have insecure pages without acitve signatures. But Firefox says this every time to all pages.

Have a good time, Gilbert

hello and good day to whom ever this massage gets to.

I just updated my windows at my work pc and all my programs were deleted and so I got signed out of all my accounts. I reinstalled firefox and tried to sign in but because its been a while I couldn't remember my password and had to reset it. but after all this and when I finally got into my account (with the same email address I was using until now) no matter how many times I click sync, nothing gets added to my bookmarks, history, passwords, etc.

then I checked with one on my phone to see whether that was working or not, and that was signed out as well and asks me to sign in again. I've been using this browser for years now and have many save information on this account I CAN'T LOSE ALL THAT. the primary account was on my laptop which is at home and currently I am terrified of turning that on and finding everything's gone again. please help me get my info back. I can't remember years of saved bookmarks and passwords.
