1. Firefox apparently disconnects in Wordpress when making revisions to pages. 2. Toolbar in Firefox does not work when the main tab is open (or is extremely slow - hard to tell the difference). 3. Twitter links to threads, articles and embedded videos does not work most of the time. 4. Everything is slower.

I'm using Windows 8 - and have no intention of upgrading as I am gradually migrating to Linux. Should I revert to older version of Firefox? None of this happened with earlier versions.

Thanks

I can't log into wowway.com email in Firefox, but I can access my email in MS Edge. I'd rather use Firefox, as I do for everything else. I have turned off the enhanced tracking protections and turned off my ad blocker and my anti-tracking add-on from Disconnect, and it still won't work. I had this trouble earlier today when there was an internet outage in my area for my Wowway internet service, but after service returned I was able to log back into their system and open my email.

Now, I can still log into their system for my account, but when I click on the "email" icon, I get a message that says "attempting to log you into your email now" and something flashes in the bottom, left corner of the screen and my email never comes up. Normally, this message does not appear and I go right to my email account. I have also unplugged both my router and modem, waited 30 seconds and powered them back up. This did not fix the problem.

Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Andy

Please advise how to revert back to old display. It changed with latest update. I am in tears as simply cannot read this light text on black background. I am seeing blurry, squinting to try focus and getting headache. Spent over an hour trying to follow steps on internet to restore old settings. . Nothing worked. Colour panel in settings shows text selection as black, background as white. But that is not what it's doing. Desperate, else need to set up another default browser. Cannot work like this.

Hello,

I love your browser. However, I have noticed that with each update the menu size has gotten smaller and smaller. Can you please tell me where I can make the adjustment size to my preference. I have looked for addons, and through countless old videos trying to accomplish this but it's simply not happening.

I have the current version for 64bit systems, which is 96.0.1. Please help.

For over a year (just over a year on this computer and a few more years on a different computer) I have had a custom theme at the top appearing from the file menu through the address bar. The computers have also always had the New Tab menu being a light colored screen. I turn on the computer today, to find I guess Firefox updated last night? and completely got rid of the lightness of that page to make it dark, leaving me on the verge of a migraine every time I have to look at that thing.

How do I get rid of that dark page, back to the lighter version WITHOUT getting rid of my custom banner at the top? (yes I tried to use the light extension in theme and that gets rid of the banner and leaves me with a horrible white at the top which is just as big of an issue for me as all the black. I really need that like muted Tan back.)

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?

My C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Temp folder fills up with Firefox update folders called "MozillaBackgroundTask{numberletterstring}", a new one of which appears every 7 hours (except when computer is off because I changed the Update setting after this issue started so the "Allow Firefox to automatically install updates" has the "when Firefox is not running" unchecked). Every day I delete the previous day's folders. This is annoying. It started within the last month. I don't use Firefox as my default browser. This only happens on my Windows 7 Pro laptop, not on my Windows 10 laptop. Can anyone tell me why this has started happening and how to stop these files keep accumulating please?

I am using Firefox 96.0.1 on macOS Monterey 12.1

If you have "'Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed checked in Privacy & Security/Cookies and Site Data then this causes sites that use a service worker to fail registration with the error:

"Failed to register/update a ServiceWorker for scope https://every-layout.dev/: Storage access is restricted in this context due to user settings or private browsing mode."

This *only* occurs with Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Brave etc. all register the service worker OK. I know the workaround is to put in an Exception to Allow but this should not be necessary. In this case the service worker is use to provide access to paid for content and off-line reading.

I contacted the site's developers and they tell me that they have been waiting for ages for Mozilla to fix this issue and suggested I used an alternative browser.

Can anyone explain why Firefox behaves in this way and if this "feature" will be fixed on future releases?

Thanks

Recently (past several months) firefox has been taking every light mode theme I choose and changing it to dark mode. Do. Not. Want.

Once a theme has been "changed", I can never use it in light mode again. So I'm left mode-hopping in the hopes of being able to get a readable light mode for a couple days, until I have to change again.

I've checked other questioners but their answers didn't solve this.

Firefox on my Win 10 desktop seems to be saving logins just fine, but Firefox on my linux laptop isn't. Instead of saving the logins I've actually used (manually) to log into a website, it offers me instead the next time I attempt to log into the website a list of some user IDs I've never used on that website. Why is that?! Anybody have any idea why, where saving logins is concerned, my Windows Firefox is working fine, but my linux Firefox is not? Thanks for any insight you can provide.

My current browser (version in header), has stopped saving previous session. I followed the advise from FredMcD on this page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1345654, and the browser is still not saving tabs. From Fred's post, I couldn't find any "sessionstore.jsoniz4" files in the browser folder. I did find the "sessionstore-backup" folder and deleted it. I restarted Firefox, opened a folder and then stopped Firefox and restarted it again, and I only went to the Firefox Home page. The "restore session" box is selected.

What else should I try??
