I know it gets posted a lot but none have actual working answers. I have autoplay to be blocked on all sites, I will never want any site to autoplay anything, I'd rather not be ever to ever start the video than for autoplay to happen.

I've checked the about:config against other posts say are the answer but it it's never solved this.

Upgraded to firefox 96 and the problem persists - haven't checked much yet but instagram.com is certainly playing every post.

Yesterday when I installed the 96.0 update it has forced my background color into a dark grey and ignores the background color setting. I would like to know if there is a setting, add on or update that can return this to normal. The theme I am using has not been updated in 2 years so I am fairly sure the update has caused this.

I have been using the same custom theme for the past 3 years or so on both my windows 10 pro and dual boot Ubuntu 20.04. Recently, my windows 10 pro firefox started going into dark mode all of a sudden without me changing ANYTHING. The system theme and everything else stays the same. Then about 5 days later, my Ubuntu 20.04 firefox started to inherit this stupid dark mode as well. I have tried _ setting ui.systemUsesDarkTheme to 0 (number value) in about:config _ Changing to other custom color themes, and they all went into dark mode. _ Refresh Firefox _ Reinstall Firefox

When I went into "Ads on & theme" tabs, changing to system theme, it picks up the white theme mode. But Youtube webpage system theme mode pick up the dark theme mode.

Problem: Firefox scrolls up to the top of page when I click on any video link on Tiktok site.

Details:

  • Problem also exists in Private Window.
  • I tried disabling all Extensions and it didn't help.
  • Works normal only in Safe Mode.
  • Tiktok works fine with other browsers.
  • Page works normal 1 time after initial loading. I click on any video and it opens. When I exit video page and land back on video index, problem starts. Any mouse click (right,left and middle) makes FF jump to top of the page (even without scrolling. It's supposed to scroll just like when you press HOME on keyb.).
  • 2 different behaviors on Tiktok Main Feed vs Tiktok User's Feed. On the Main Feed, when I click on a video, I see the page jumps to top but it opens the video link after a 1/2 sec delay. On the User's Feed, video link doesn't open. It just jumps to the top and does nothing.

Version: FF 96.0.3 (64-bit) for Desktop PC OS: Win 7 SP2

Any suggestions to pin and fix this?

How to have uninterruptible full screen

There are some browser games that are best played full screen, but I can't seem to find a way to keep the "helpful" menu from popping up over my game when the mouse hits the top edge of the screen. The best I can do is not play full screen, and detach the tab of my game to minimize the amount of tabs visible (and clickable) but there are still these "landmines" on the screen that actively sabotage playing the game without having the handicap of firefox taking over and messing with the screen.

Is there any way to completely disable the popups from a fullscreen mode, show no toolbars, tabs, or anything else (except when exiting fullscreen mode via the keyboard.) I want the mouse to have no interaction with changing the display except for the game itself.

Playing http://slither.io is a good example of what I'm talking about.

Thanks!

I recently changed Firefox settings to delete cookies for everything when I close it except the sites I use frequently. This has worked great for everything except for Google sites which sign me out every time I close the browser.

I assume there are some supporting sites for signing in to Google that need to be in the exception list, but I don't know what they might be. I'm also using Mozilla's new Multi-account Container extension in case that matters.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I have a custom theme on Firefox called Charlies Red. Up until two days ago, Firefox would always consider it to be in light mode (which I prefer) whenever I'd use it. Now, however, it's in dark mode, and the only way I can return to light mode is to give up my custom theme and instead choose Light as a theme, which I don't like as much as Charlies Red.

Is there a way to force light mode on regardless of which theme I use? One source said I could go to about:config and create a ui.systemUsesDarkTheme number, setting it to 0, but I tried it to no avail and so deleted the number.

The themes I use normally have white backgrounds and black text. Following an update, the default colour scheme changed from a white background to a black background for web pages without the theme being changed. Google, YouTube, and Firefox pages are all using black backgrounds. I ensured that the Dark theme was disabled, selected the Light theme, then switched back to the theme I had been using; the black background returned when I switched back to the theme I wanted to use. I tried changing the colour settings under "Language and Appearance: Fonts and Colours: Colours..." to white text and black background and back to black text and white background, but no change was noticed at any point.

How do I change the page background back to white?

You can log onto the site and search for products but when you try to add a product to the cart nothing happens. You also can't actually go to the cart. Last time I used Walmart was a few weeks ago and everything worked fine!

I like to mute all of my tabs so they don't play annoying sounds. However a very annoying mute icon appears when I hover over it and the "muted" text is shown under the name. I tried adding to my userChrome.css:

@namespace url(http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul); .tab-icon-overlay[muted], .tab-icon-sound[muted] {

 display: none !important;

}

This only removes the muted icon, and when I hover over a tab its favicon disappears. I also tried changing browser.tabs.showAudioPlayingIcon as suggested in [answer] but it isn't an option anymore.

How do I remove it completely without changing the context menu item?

Hello Support,

I'm dying inside right now. I had over 400 tabs open and launched a second instance of Firefox. After that I closed the first instance and restarted my computer. Now the 400 tabs are gone and even with "Restore session" I have no success. Is there any way to restore the tabs no matter how?

I am trying to transfer my firefox bookmarks from my old computer's hard drive to my new computer. they are both fairly current laptops, and i believe both are on windows 10 (the new one is on, i think, whatever the newest version of windows is). I cannot turn on my old computer, so I can't export the bookmarks, but the hard drive is fully functional. The problem is, I can't find where the bookmarks are located. I have tried looking through the files, I have "show hidden files" on, I have tried manually searching for "places.sqlite" and I have tried doing the %APPDATA% thing. I can see other folders on the hard drive very easily, so it shouldn't be the fault of the hard drive. If you know how I am able to find the files, please go through it step-by-step; I'm not proficient in computer things, and something that may seem very obvious and instinctive to you may be what I'm messing up on.

If you use userChrome.css to customise the tab toolbar, you might see the height of the tabs increase with Firefox 96.0.2. For me the fix was to add an entry to userChrome.css:

   #tabbrowser-tabs:not([secondarytext-unsupported]) .tab-label-container {
     height: initial !important;
   }

This counteracts a change in 96.0.2 which sets the height of that element to 2em.

I'm running 96.0.3 (64-bit) on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Firefox has suddenly started having trouble with my local library's website. Chrome loads it just fine. Here's a sample URL:

https://jocolibrary.bibliocommons.com/v2/record/S36C592151

Firefox tries to load that for 60 seconds or so and then says "504 Gateway Time-out The server didn't respond in time. "

When I go to the main site:

https://jocolibrary.bibliocommons.com

Firefox will load it, though it takes a while, and everything seems ok except it flashes the message "Could not retrieve availabilities via API. Baker_And_Taylor short-circuited and fallback disabled." When I try to use the Search function on the page, I get the 504 error mentioned above.

I've tried running Firefox without add-ons and the same thing happens. I've tried deleting the cookies for this site as well.

Firefox has never had trouble with this site before late last night.
