Hi All. Love FF but there's one thing that's driving me crazy... the different color of the Library window (see screen grab). The main window is this nice dark "cool gray" color, but the library window is this greenish color.

Is there a way to change that? I've had the userChrome.css file installed and feel fairly comfortable making code edits.

Thanks in advance.

When Firefox automatically updated to 109.1 tonight, I lost all my saved passwords and bookmarks. The bookmarks aren't in a file under 'Restore' in 'Manage Bookmarks' (but I had saved them so I got most of them back). But I can't get my passwords. What happened?

I tried to access a U California Master Gardener website: https://ncmg.ucanr.org/. I've accessed this for years. Yesterday, when on my Mac using Firefox, I'd get message, "SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE." (I attached screenshot.) I tried closing Firefox and reopening, cleared all browser history and other cache, and substituted "www" for "https:/" No change. I thought it was the website until I found that I can still access it on Firefox using my iPhone. (I can also access it via Chrome.)

Please advise.

Thanks! Chrissy

Regardless of the OS or Browser , trying to access the site https://www.googleadservices.com/ results with a failure described as "We can’t connect to the server at www.googleadservices.com."

Specifically this error message was just obtained on macOS Ventura 13.1 on my Intel based MacBook Pro using Firefox 109.0.1. It happens on all Windows machines I tried, on my iPad and iPhone.

I saw at least a million similar questions similar to this one, even more advices on how to address it - and no answer helps.

Some sites offer separate links for viewing and downloading. (I'm specifically interested in PDF files, but I think this question is more general.) I'm not sure how this distinction is communicated to Firefox—I'm guessing in the MIME type? But regardless of the mechanism, Firefox does not seem to offer any obvious settings that distinguish between the two cases. Are there ways to distinguish in less obvious places, such as about:config?

As a specific example: currently on a certain site when I click "View" the PDF is displayed in Firefox, and when I click "Download" the PDF is both placed in my Downloads folder and displayed in Firefox. I would prefer that the "Download" link only cause the download, and not cause the display. How can I change this without breaking the "View" links?

I have tried all the methods the internet suggests. but nothing works. I still have the red dotted outlines on everything. Any thoughts?

These are the instructions Type about:config in the address bar and press Return. A warning page may appear. Click Accept the Risk and Continue to go to the about:config page. In the about:config page, search for the preference accessibility.force_disabled. Observe the Value column of the accessibility.force_disabled row.

       If it is set to 1 then do nothing.
       If it is set to 0, double-click on it to open an editing field, type 1, then click the blue check mark button or press the Enter key to complete the update.

Unable to load website if any background XHR request is failed

I am using Firefox Developer Edition Version: 110.0b5 (64-bit) on M1 Mac running Ventura 13.1.

I am building an webapp some XHR triggering in background but it is not necessary to run the application (running fine on other browsers). But on Firefox Developer Edition, It shows a error window with the message and stops loading the application.

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:4000.

localhost:4000 is the failing XHR request domain. I have attached the screenshot.

How to ignore the XHR failing errors just like other browsers?

You used to be able to "Paste and Match Style" by either right-clicking and selecting "Paste and Match Style" or by pressing cmd+shift+v. This seems to have gone away in recent versions. I don't use it too often, so I'm not 100% sure when this change was made, but it is not there in the latest version. This is essentially required when pasting from certain apps into a rich text editor on a website. OneNote, for example, requires this. Now if I want to copy something from OneNote into a rich text editor (like a GitHub issue or Stackoverflow answer) in Firefox, I have to first paste it into a text editor and then copy again to paste it in the browser.

I'm attaching two screenshots one of the context menu when pasting into the body of a GitHub issue in Firefox from OneNote and another of the context menu while doing the same thing in Chrome.

Is this expected? It seems odd to remove the feature when it makes working between other widely-used apps difficult.

I'm running MacOS Ventura 13.2 on a M2 Macbook and Firefox 109.0

I can not select a Downloads folder and even if "Always Ask" is set, all Downloads of all types fail immediately.

See quick screenshare here: https://www.loom.com/share/c5bc3563630f4d1182199ee7787e32f4

I've tried many of the common things: uninstalled/reinstalled start with add-ons disabled refreshed

None of them solved the issue.

Any thoughts/insights?

Thanks!

Does Firefox provides us with an option to group the tabs. I tried finding it in Firefox Tab's content menu and Settings but couldn't. I tried the Simple Tab Groups add-on but didn't like it. I want to groups the tabs and want them in the tabs section just like How Google Chrome does it?

Hello! I have been using Bitwarden extension on MAC since I set it up more than a year ago. Bitwarden is installed on Raspberry Pi server and uses self-signed certificate. The other day I logged off and currently I am not able to login with the same username and master password. I tried many ways to get to my vault but get message saying my username or password is not correct. In the same time I can get access to my Bitwarden data over web interface with the same credentials. Regards, Alex

I am often switching office and change my system default printer always first when I am in a new place. I learned from the community here that the right thing to do for having Firefox/Thunderbird follow this choice is set print_printer to 'default'. The problem is that this does only work for a while. As soon as I use the selection dropdown in the printing dialog (e.g. to exceptionally select the PDF printer) it will overwrite 'default' by that printer. The consequence is that from that time on I have to manually select the printer or got to the config editor again to set 'default'. Is there any simple solution I overlooked?

If not can you tell me how I can make a feature request? A simple solution would be to include something like 'System Default' in the dropdown list in the printing dialog. Although for my taste, it would be better to have the selection in the printer dialog only temporary and return to the previous printer selection for the next printing.

Every time I want to go to twitch.tv and type "tw" in the address bar, Twitter is the first suggestion. I don't want to go to Twitter. I've followed all the instructions in this post: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/remove-websites-address-bar-suggestions#firefox:mac:fx109 and still the problem persists.

When I use shift delete, it does remove the suggestion, but then as soon as I add an i (making "twi"), Twitter is back at the top again. I've deleted every instance of Twitter in my history/cookies/cache and it keeps doing this.

Why can't Firefox prioritize a website I visit daily and have several bookmarks of (Twitch) over promoting a website I do not want to visit? Please fix this.
