I seem to be encountering various problems since the update to 73, the main one is the profile folder, I dislike the default location so have previously just put my preferred location in appdata\roaming\mozila\profiles.ini but 73 regularly ignores this and puts a basic profile in the default location and alters profile.ini. Using the profile manager does not get any better results. I am also having problems with the home page, I have set a custom page but 73 often resets this to a blank page or sometimes the default home page. I have had to resort to a 'portable' version as 73 constantly resetting things was getting so annoying but the portable does not work well as a default browser.

I wanted to install a dark theme, which I did, but then i noticed something strange(screenshot), what even is this? Is this a bug? Is it intended? My dark theme accompanied by the default minimize, maximize and close buttons, I've checked other themes and even those recommended to me by default in the themes tab and it's the same problem.

Is this fixable?

Hey all,

everytime I start Firefox, it automatically displays Nord theme that I was using some time ago.

I want to change that theme to something else, so I switched to the default dark theme. Upon restarting the firefox, the theme gets reset back to Nord. In theme selection settings I can see that the dark theme is enabled, but firefox actually still displays the Nord theme. I'm assuming it's because I have Nord theme synced from my account from my previous pc installs.

To remove the Nord theme I tried to:

  • Switch to a different theme
  • Remove the Nord theme from my themes list, leaving only the default Light, Dark, System and Alpenglow themes.
  • in about:config I have set services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false
  • In firefox settings, under sync, I have unchecked syncing of add-ons.

But firefox still uses the Nord theme upon every start up, regardless of what other theme I chose.

How do I get rid of the Nord theme?

When I now hit "file" then "mail to" gmail demands (https://www.google.com/gmail/about/) that I open an account instead of my usual Outlook being used. Historically, I have used a gmail account for other business and both have remained separate programs. I want to return to using Outlook as my default program. It is still listed and chosen by me to be my default app but it is not working that way. Thanks for any and all help.

How Can I Make Firefox 93 Stop Asking If I want to Add Second Webmail Service As An Application for Mailto Links?

Greetings to all!

I am experiencing a minor annoyance with Firefox that I would like to resolve before it becomes a major PITA.

I am running Firefox 93 on Linux Mint 20.1. I have email accounts with two different webmail providers: Gmail and ProtonMail. I have Gmail selected as the application I wish to use when I click a mail link on a web page. For the last couple or three months though, when I open my account on Protonmail.com, an extra window appears at the top of the Firefox window which reads

"Add "mail.protonmail.com" as an application for mailto links?" This question is followed by a button labeled "Add application", but no button labeled "No, thank you", or "Bugger off", or anything similar.

I can close the window by simply clicking on the close window X in the upper right corner and that is that, but ONLY for the current session.

What I would like to figure out is the process by which I can 'teach' Firefox that, No! I DO NOT want to add "mail.protonmail.com" as an application for mailto links.

I have looked high and low across the 'net, and particularly on Mozilla's site for an answer to my query, but I have had no joy.

By involving Mozilla Support in my quest, I am hopeful that I am simply overlooking the solution to this irksome issue.

I eagerly await a reply.

My respect and Best Regards,

In Firefox, I click on settings/General settings and I see the Default Browser box. It is checked , HOWEVER the whole area is slightly blurred and I cannot uncheck the box. Not that I want to, but the system has taken over and will not allow me to uncheck it. At the same time this happened, Microsoft EDGE is starting to come up at various places when another app launches my web browser. Hewlett Packard is a good example. So, I tried to completely uninstall edge, with no luck. THAT uninstall box is also slightly blurred or faded, same as the Firefox default browser is. It is like Windows 10 is trying to take over my system completely. I hope you have had experience with this since they are now messing with your controls and your settings! Please help.

I had a theme in Firefox Color, but I decided I liked one of the new built-in color options. However, it keeps reverting to the Firefox Color theme each time I start - very annoying. Is there a way to prevent this from happening without uninstalling the extension? I don't want to lose the theme I have in Firefox Color, I just don't want it to override the one currently selected. It's a little confusing as a separate extension in the first place, but just wondering how to manage this. Thanks.

I am trying to configure a proxy server for firefox, but I am seeing inconsistent results. The intent is for this proxy to block outside traffic/browsing and only allow traffic to specific internal servers.

I have configured the below proxy settings, but it seems that these are not being used in all cases. For example, if I type a full web address into the address bar and hit enter, it states that the proxy is not allowing the connection, however, if I use the address bar/search engine to search, it will show me web results and links for pages pull up normally. This behavior is also not consistent on all devices, some devices are blocked as expected when searching.

lockPref("network.proxy.type", 1); lockPref("network.proxy.http", "127.0.0.1"); lockPref("network.proxy.http_port", 8080); lockPref("network.proxy.no_proxies_on", "localhost, 127.0.0.1, my.domain.net"); lockPref("network.proxy.share_proxy_settings", true);

Why does firefox ignore my proxy settings for searching? Are there any other approaches that could be used here that wouldn't affect other browsers?

Today when I opened Firefox in Private Window I was greeted with some kind of pop up type feature in the middle of my private page about changing the color of Firefox. I have never seen this before so I closed the window and it made me think that I had malware which I promptly closed Firefox and ran Norton and Malware Bytes which were neg. I opened Firefox again not using Private Window and it opened to Firefox default page instead of the homepage I had designated as being Bing. So I had to now go into settings and reset my home page which is stable. What is going on with Firefox? Will we be seeing these option windows appear when we open Firefox like to change Firefox colors or something else? Is there a purpose of changing my homepage back to default Firefox? What other things have been messed with that we do not know about.

Hello everybody,


My FF color scheme somehow got changed, as you can see from the attached image. Instead of the colour being dark blue for the background of highlighted text, it is now azure, I guess. I vaguely remember FF randomly offering me to change the colours scheme and I must've clicked something wrong. How can I get the default scheme back?
