How do I switch from light to dark mode? I've been using the same theme for a while now and up until the update it was defaulted in light mode but now it's in dark mode. How do I change my webpages to be defaulted in light mode?

I know and admit I stuffed up.

One day a long time ago I was prompted for my master password.

When I clicked in that area/field a requester popped up asking me to pick a colour. Confused I picked one - and a bad one I now see.

So now when certain parts of a web page are opened the background colour is this horrible colour and I can't really read what is there.

I don't understand what I did or HOW I did it.

This is a cropped example of the bad contrast I am seeing.

As I said, I admit I stuffed up. But this seems to all have happened since that one time with the main password requester.

Crash also happens when passed the argument `-safe-mode`. Does not happen in new profile. Crash happens both in v96.0.1 and after downgrading to v95.0.1. Console output mentions "Exiting due to channel error." I have not been able to find a way of increasing output verbosity.

Over the years, I have become dependent on a bookmarks toolbar that shows only icons, but will show the text with a mouse hover, using the following in userchrome:

/* The lines below allow the bookmarks toolbar to show only icons */

#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-text { display:none !important; }
#personal-bookmarks .bookmark-item > .toolbarbutton-icon {
 margin:0px 0px 0px -4px !important;
 padding:0px !important;
}

The upgrade to Firefox 96 broke this. I considered spending an hour or two deleting the text from all of the bookmarks on my bookmarks toolbar, but I depend on the mouse-hover tooltip with the text to remind me of some important but not all-that-frequently-used bookmarks.

Any help appreciated.

For years I have been using Firefox. If I clicked on a hyperlink in any of my programs, Outlook messages, websites etc, Firefox opened a new tab. That behaviour has suddenly stopped for websites including this one occasionally. It seems to still work for Outlook. Has Firefox changed its policy?

The advice on https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1283295 is to edit browser.link.open_newwindow (3) 1:current tab; 2:new window; 3:new tab; But that is already set to 3.

What other settings might work? And why has this been changed?

I have Firefox on the default update setting, and I have 3 of the most popular add-ons installed.

Why does it seem Firefox (Mozilla) is changing my home page to the MSN home page "https://www.msn.com/?pc=ACTE" about every 2-3 days. I have manually changed it back to the Firefox homepage 3 times now. I believe this may of started with the latest update?

Is Mozilla selling their soul again? - likely Or do I have a virus or is it an add-on - "unlikely"

Thanks in advance.

I prefer Firefox browser on my computer - currently using 96.0.1

 a month or so ago, when logged in to godaddy email workspace, the subject line cursor won't stay in place.

I'll type a word then space resulting in the cursor jumping to the front of the line of text. Sometimes it jumps after the first letter but always with the space bar and only in the subject line of this website.

If I type a word in the subject line, then space, the cursor moves to the front of the line of text... if I continue typing there and use the space bar the cursor doesn't jump. But if I move the cursor behind the first word and space, type another word and space it jumps again.

I worked with godaddy on the issue... after troubleshooting various browsers (this only happens when using Firefox) and other things they asked me to do they point the finger at Firefox. I hope this can be figured out, I do not want to use Chrome for email. thanks!

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.

With W10 set to Dark Mode and Firefox set to Dark Mode, I am unable to discern the active tab from the others at the top. There should be an outline or color difference for the active tab to make switching to another chosen tab easy. I am forced to change the Firefox Theme to one that actually does this. I don't understand why the default dark theme in Firefox doesn't do this. Will there be a change in the next version?

I have English and German installed in Windows and Firefox (Well and Russian, but Russian does not give any issues) English is set as system language in Windows. English is set as the preferred Menu and Content Language in Firefox. The menu is displayed in English as it should be.

Problem now is, some Firefox messages, i.g. the message that a website is asking me to confirm I want to leave, is in German, for apparently no reason. Even on English websites. It's not a major inconvenience, just weird.

I attempted to remove German from the alternative menu languages, for testing, but cannot. English and German both cannot be removed. A third language I add randomly can be removed.

I am aware that the locale I downloaded Firefox in cannot be removed, but I hardly downloaded Firefox in two Locales at the same time, did I? From what I can see I originally probably downloaded German Locale, since English is listed under Language Add-ons.

So what I am curious about is, how is it possible that Firefox gives me part of the menu/browser messages in English and parts of it in German? Does the English Language lack some translations? Hardly I'd guess. And why do I have two languages I cannot remove?

I have Windows 10. Since the last update Firefox has been running very slowly, and scrolling is nearly impossible. I have done everything suggested in troubleshooting including refreshing and and eliminating startup cache. Still Firefox will only run normally in troubleshoot mode. This is true on my desktop in my office. My laptop at home won't scroll in PDF using the up and down buttons but will still do so with the mouse. Other than that, it still runs at the normal speed. At my office I'm using version 96.0.1 (64 bit); I'm not at home to check my laptop.

When I try to sign in on Morrisons On Line Shopping I am invited to add my user name and password, once done there is a pause then this appears:

This page isn't directing properly. Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request in a way that will never complete. This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies. Try again.

No matter how often I try again, the same thing occurs. It also occurs in troubleshooting mode, and also if I remove all of my security add ons.

This has only occurred since Xmas, and does not occur on any other browser.

I would like a fix, please.

Hi,

This is my first post here, hopefully one of the only ones I'll make too. But know that this issue warranted an account creation. So here's the issue/question:

Why did Firefox automatically switch my theme over to a forest green theme with a pop up window that gave my maybe 6-8 other color options or let me stay with my old one? (today on 1/15/2022). Is this native Firefox behavior or do I have to hunt a plugin/extension down? If it's Firefox then how to I turn that shit off FOREVER. No matter what's causing it it's incredibly intrusive and the lack of exit button is a low move from whoever did the ui/ux design. Any info would be appreciated. Win10 pro, Firefox 96.0.1 (64-bit) Darkreader, colorzilla, ublock origin, lastpass, decentraleyes, clearurls, and keepa installed. Can share more if needed

Thanks!
