How can I disabling dark theme integration on Windows 10 and Firefox 63. I have dark theme enabled on Windows 10 but don't want this passed to Firefox as I find the tool bars hard to see.

I've tried switching to the light theme within Firefox but this isn't the same as the default theme without Windows 10 having dark mode enabled.

For instance in either dark mode or switching to light mode removes the title bar colour.

Firefox update 63.0.1 is "super" slow. Nothing in the fix suggestions works.

This has been an ongoing problem that started, first with update 63.0, and continues with update 63.0.1.

I have tried multiple fix suggestions, including the very disappointing "refresh Firefox" option. While that did nothing to cure the problem, it did wipe out every saved password. That, to be blunt, really ticked me off. It says this fix solution will keep our saved information, with no mention of erasing passwords.

Second, I changed the Network Settings as directed, from Use system proxy settings to auto-detect proxy settings for this network. I have been cautioned NOT to use the no proxy option, because it has a chance of rendering some websites unavailable. Not interested in messing up my browsing experience any worse than these recent Firefox updates have accomplished by themselves.

All these problems aside, my biggest disappointment is in the total lack of communication from Mozilla. While I value the Firefox ideology and the mission to provide a more private internet browsing experience, all this is worthless to me if my pages load at something akin to dial-up speeds.

At this juncture I have no choice but to use Google Chrome until someone can provide me with a workable solution, a solution that doesn't send me back to square one with all my saved Firefox information. If that is the only remedy, I might as well switch my default browser now and begin to re-acclimate myself to the changes.

Thanks.

I have added https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/gfycat-click-to-gif/

It shows up in the Extensions section under "about:addons" and it is enabled. However in my toolbar, there is no icon for it and therefore I cannot use it. I've tried using the "Customize" feature but none of my extensions show up there, so I cannot drag them to the toolbar.

I would attach screenshots, but even that isn't working on this support page form.

I'm not sure if either of these are possible because i've done a lot of searching and found nothing, but is there some kind of genius on here who knows how to make the right click context menus black with white text? Is this maybe possible using the userChrome.css file? I don't want to use a theme because i just want this one thing changed.

I'd also like to increase the spacing between each item on the context menu. See attached image to see exactly what i mean...

I'd be happy if i can do at least one of these things. Thanks.

Hi there, since some days i encounter problems with downloading pdf-files. I tried this link http://personendatenbank.germania-sacra.de/books and tried to download a file by clicking "PDF" at any of the links there. I wouldn´t work. I see the download in the history (strg-j) but there is no progress. I encountered the same problem at another site.

Is there a problem with downloadlinks beginning with http:// ???

In Chrome for example the link works without any problems

Ever since I upgraded to Firefox 63, several trusted websites have stopped loading; instead I get sent to an error page with:

Your connection is not secure

The website tried to negotiate an inadequate level of security.

<www.thestar.com> uses security technology that is outdated and vulnerable to attack. An attacker could easily reveal information which you thought to be safe. The website administrator will need to fix the server first before you can visit the site.

Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY


This also occurs with https://download-installer.cdn.mozilla.net/pub/firefox/releases/63.0.1/win32/en-US/Firefox%20Installer.exe

Is the problem at my end or theirs? If the former, what do I need to do to return to the behaviour for FF 62?

Not only has FF disabled Tab Mix Plus, but none of the available extensions offer similar tab management. This forces me several times a day, when it is not several dozen times, to simple but annoying manipulations.

On the Web, I realized that I am not the only one complaining about the deactivation of Tab Mix Plus and its non-replacement.

I am not competent in this field. However, it seems to me that FF has had enough time, since Tab Mix Plus is disabled, to either help its developer comply with FF's new constraints or develop similar functions internally.

So this happened today: - Firefox did an update while I was playing. - Suddenly I noticed the icon became a blank page and when I clicked it Windows informed me, that firefox isn't on my PC. (Uninstalled itself for some reason?) - Since then Firefox won't ask if I want to save my tabs so I have to manually restore previous session every time. ShowQuitwarning is set ot be enabled. I tried deleting/renaming sessionstore.js and prefs.js - When I restored ShowQuitwarning it says it isn't a boolean, but a string variable. I assume something got corrupted, by have no idea what and how to restore besides a full reinstall? (In the meantime the option seems to have vanished fully, it is not present in about:config)

Windows 10 had an update, I reverted the update, and now for Amazon specifically, and on Firefox only, I cannot play prime videos. I get error 7235 which is digital rights error. Basically it cannot see the add-on "Widevine Content Decryption Module". I've tried restarting PC several times, 4 different version of Firefox from 63-68 (currently on version 63). Tried uninstalling completely and reinstalling Firefox. I prompted Widevine to prompt when used and when I played a Amazon video, it DID prompt me, but still gave me the error.

Tried contacting amazon support but they just gave me the basic troubleshooting and had no luck. Any ideas are appreciated!

I recently ran Firefox Refresh to speed up my browser. After Firefox was refreshed, it started loading the MSN page on starting, even though it is not set as my home page. All additional tabs show the correct home page. The URL that it opens looks like this: https://www.msn.com/en-ca/?cobrand=acer15.msn.com&ocid=ACERDHP15&pc=ACTE

It looks like Acer (my laptop manufacturer) is trying to force me to use MSN as a homepage. How do I undo this?

The same script exists on two different machines, different domains https://support.lunarpages.com/login and https://helpdesk.lunarmania.com/login On the first one, everything works. On the second one I got this error.

The nginx version is different: nginx/1.2.4 (where it works) vs nginx/1.12.2(where it doesn't) I don't know if this makes a difference.

I tried disabling firewall, there are no browser add-ons that would stop this script (I tried with FF in safe mode), I tried moving mime.types in nginx from location to server config. These were things I found on the internet that worked for other people. None of these things fixed it in my situation.

How can I fix it?

Thank you in advance
