I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

I'm using Windows 10 and Firefox 97.0 x64. It was working just fine for a long time now, but I shut down my computer and when I turned it back on Firefox would load, but I couldn't navigate to any webpage not could I pull up about:config or anything.

I tried uninstalling it, restarting it, uninstalling Microsoft Visual C++ redistribute 2015 x86 and x64. Nothing worked.

I then installed the x86 version of Firefox and it was able to load pages. Any ideas on how I can get Firefox 64-bit working on my PC again?

To the best of my knowledge I have not added any new extensions any time recently.

Re: "In your firefox preferences, choose language and appearance, under font, check you have background set to white, and text set to black."

Any screenshots for this example? I use 8 different browsers and Firefox is the most counter-un-intuitive browser I've ever used. Why would Settings refer to "Language" to set the background color? There is no link that I can use to Fonts and Colors under Language and Appearance to change the background color. All I can do is select a Default font, Size, Advanced, and Colors. But In colors the Background is evidently set to white but it's actually black. So I must map my way around Text and Background, Text, Background, Use System colors, Override the colors specified by the page with your selection above, Only with High Contrast themes, Link Colors, Unvisited Links, Visited Links, Underline links.....yada yada yada blah blah blah.

On the Total Adblock site it gives these directions for removing the program: "Mozilla Firefox Uninstalling Adblock from your Mozilla Firefox browser is very simple and can be done within a few clicks. Go to the Extensions Page on Mozilla Firefox copy this link into the address bar of your browser:about:addons

Find Total Adblock within your plugins . Click the 3 Dots. Click Remove."

I do not know where the "extensions page" is. Nor where to find it. While I have been using personal computers for decades, I am still a complete beginner when it comes to any technical jargon. If someone would kindly give me directions in English about getting rid of this annoying extension/program? I would deeply appreciate it.

This is really getting annoying. Again the 4k and 8k videos on Youtube are stutturing, saw some some improvement with Firefox 87 at least on the 4k videos. For example this video in 8k does not work at all, audio works fine and it stutters totally showing a single different frame every 10 secs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LxsViMm25o&t=54s&ab_channel=AroundTheWorld4K . My pc is running Win 10 64-bit, 8gb of ram and all with all drivers\os up to date. As usual no issue with Google Chrome while reproducing the above video in 8k.

CPU Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400S CPU @ 2.50GHz 4 Cores GPU - AMD Radeon R7 200 Series with 2gb.

Pls fix.

I get a email from a web site that I have to log into on a regular basis.They are telling me starting today the web site will require TLS 1.2. I went to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html to check like the web site informed me to do so. Click on Continue

Once the page completes the test, scroll down to the Protocol Features section. If Yes is displayed next to TLS 1.2, your browser will continue to work as it currently does with Talent Suite applications.

Mine shows 1.3 yes but not 1.2. I look it up 1.3 is not backwards compatible. So I changed the security.tls.version.max to 3 now everything for the TLS shows no when I run test I am lost

  Thanks for any help

Hello Mozilla community!

yesterday I installed a program which installed adware (I overlooked a little checkbox). It also changed a couple of settings in my standard browser (Firefox) like the search engine etc. It also changed the homepage. I always had the homepage pointing to my YouTube feed. I changed it back to it using the about:preferences#home method. Under "Homepage and new windows" I set the homepage to my custom URL and the home button works perfectly fine. Yet when I open a new window (with ctrl+n, not a new tab!) it also displays my home page (YouTube). It has never done that before and I cannot find anything in the settings to change that. I tried looking in about:config with browser.newtab but didn't find anything that seemed related to my problem. A couple of weeks ago I tried Firefox Nightly and I started it up and the homepage worked fine AND it didn't display it in a new window. It only did this after it synchronized the data with my Firefox account. Now my question is: How can I remove the the Homepage from a new window (and replace it with an empty page or the Firefox Home)? Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Kindly Jay

p.s. I attached the Troubleshooting Information and I'm using Linux
