I usually leave the default zoom under general settings at 100%, but when I'm in the settings / preference page, I usually set it at 90%.

However, in my attempt to clear cache on another issue, I ticked site preferences and offline web site data under clear all history. Ever since, the 90% under about:preferences does not stick like it did previously.

Setting the default zoom at 90% under General sticks, but it also applies 90% under general browsing - which is not what I want.

How could I get back to my previous settings?

Thanks.

After logging in to my Firefox account, I am unable to sync or sign out.

When I manually try syncing it just spins forever without doing anything. When I sign out and and confirm, nothing happens. I have tried restarting my machine and Firefox multiple times but the issue persists. This is very strange.

A few months ago, probably after FF update, the "open with" stopped working, only download is possible.

Particularly, simple url links fail to "open with" including reading with firefox itself. I can not open PDFs, outer program links. Only a few PDF links are opened at specially crafted websites. Probably those are sites with on-site defined MIME or allowing the PDF contents being pre-cashed.

In all the other cases where the file being opened should be pre-downloaded with FF downloader, it fails to download. The same file is downloaded easily when choosing "save as"

I guess, the problem may be in the "downloader" part only, since other online contents are displayed, i.e. streamed, or stored in cache without problems.

I work with text a lot in the browser. In Chrome, I can select a piece of text, then press Ctrl+Shift+Up/Down arrow to select paragraphs above or below the selected text. Also in Chrome, I can press Ctrl+up/down arrow to move the text cursor one paragraph above or one paragraph below when I type. But in FireFox, the combination ctrl+up/down arrow duplicates home and end. Tell me how can I assign actions to these keyboard shortcuts to work with paragraphs?

I've been using Windows Quicken and Firefox for many years and have one ongoing annoyance... When I download a .qfx file of transactions from some financial institution, a window pops up asking what should Firefox do with this file.. (Firefox is my default browser)... There is a choice to open the file with Windows Quicken and I select that and things work fine. However, there is also an optional check box that supposedly gives you the choice to "Do this automatically for files like this from now on". I check that box but it never seems to work... I am always asked the question about what should Firefox use to open a qfx file. What can I do to get FIrefox to use Windows Quicken to automatically open the file?

Hello Firefox people, I noticed that before the last upgrade to the browser, my Firefox Color was working fine. Then it stopped altogether. Now it will load up, but there are no colors in the area where there was before the upgrade. I am on Windows 7. Is there a better version to use with the extension? An older one maybe that isn't too terribly old, or is that not a good idea? I made some themes I want to send out--about 15 of them! Is there an other way to give away my art forFirefox Color--posting it somewhere, or another" loading zone"? Thank you for your time and help. It is getting frustrating that it keeps refusing to load up completely. I love playing with the colors. Have a good day. Sincerely, VJ Smith

Somehow I got hooked/tricked into changing the color scheme of my Firefox browser. I chose to add on Firefox Color and design my own, but now the drop down boxes (for Bookmarks, Tools, extended Toolbar) all have this ugly dark grey background with white-colored text, which I find REALLY unpleasant!!! I do not see how to switch the box color -- can you help?

With the latest update a lot of ease-of-use has gone away. Include is the fact that tabs that are playing sound only show an icon when I hover the mouse over them. I can not seem to about:config to get the sound icon to remain, despite changing the setting. This means if multiple tabs are playing I have to search all the tabs individually. It also means I cannot quickly switch to the desired tabs muting and unmuting as I prefer.

While this is a specific problem which I hope you can solve readily, it is a part of a pattern I have seen over some of the more recent updates, where useful features are removed in favor of aesthetics. It was this very mistake that lead me to leave internet explorer for firefox. Leave us the ability to turn on and off what we like, instead of forcing us to accept whatever you think is the trend.

DuckDuckGo is my default search engine. When I open a new tab a DuckDuckGo search box comes up as part of the new tab layout.

After I upgraded to 89.0 I find that if I enter text into the DuckDuckGo search box the text automatically switches into the address bar and looks through the URL history instead of being entered into the DuckDuckGo search box. I can't use the DuckDuckGo search box at all, I can only choose a search option that (sometimes) comes up in the address bar instead.

Is this supposed to work like this? It's very inefficient.

I use a monitor that is at some distance from me, to avoid eyestrain because I have vision problems. This is fine for web pages, documents, etc. because I can vary the text size as needed. Since the new update, I can't read the text on my bookmarks, menu, toolbars, tabs, etc. I don't know if they've made the text smaller or if it's a result of the amount of space added around everything, but I could swear the text is much smaller. Either way, this is unusable for me. Is there a way I can increase the text size? If not, I'm going to have to find a way to reinstall the old version or switch to another browser.

Sorry if the answer to this question is obvious with a bit of searching, but you know... I can't see anything. It's very frustrating.

I am trying to do some local web development, if I open an index file directly in Firefox it complains that the CORS request is not being made over HTTP. I know I can try and set up a local web server for development but that's beside the point.

According to this previous Mozilla post linked below I can set privacy.file_unique_origin to false, and it's suppose to override the security setting. This does not work for me, setting it to false and closing all browsers and testing the HTML file again, I still see the CORS error. Is this setting now useless in the newest version of Firefox? Is there a different config setting I need to adjust?

The last Firefox updates have suddenly created havoc. None, absolutely none of the websites that I frequently visit will have my login information saved even though when I view logins in the settings mode, they are all listed there with the correct passwords. I am not technical and would sincerely appreciate a tutorial of some kind as to how to correct this egregious oversite on behalf of the Mozilla team.

Firefox changed my View settings with the recent update ...

The new changes don't make sense at all ... They basically reduced the contrast and/or increased the brightness in the toolbar. Like other humans, I rely on contrast to see where one thing ends and another thing starts.

I didn't ask for or agree to this ... How do I change it back? (I clicked around and it's not obvious.)
