Hi, I realise this sort of thing is not exactly the end of the world but I'll ask anyway. In Proton, the background of the Settings page, about:config page and the Library window have changed to black [with white text]. Before, everything was white background with black text...is there any way at all to go back to that, without changing the Theme that I've been using for years? The Firefox colour settings change the Settings and about:config pages background to white but then you have the glaring white high contrast etc on every web page...and it still has a black background in the Library window, regardless of what colour settings I have there. I can change all this easily with some other theme or that Firefox Color addon [which is how I got the second picture below] but if that's the only option I would rather just put up with it as it is.

First pic is how it is now, second is how it always was before Proton and I want it to be again.

Thanks

Good People, Followed screen pop-up to make Firefox default browser. Now all *.pdf files have Firefox icons and open as .html pages, I think! Seen some solutions, but for older versions of windows and followed procedure: go to Adobe, Edit, Preferences, General, 'Select Default PDF Handler', as dialog Does not have Adobe Reader XI, step two was Change to Adobe Reader DC, clicked continue, but NO Windows Configuration Screen appears. Using Version 94.0.2 (64bit) with Windows 10. Also, help answer said not necessarily a Firefox problem, also within Adobe Reader. Not comfortable with changes to be made in the registry. James

A subfolder in one of my bookmark folders has disappeared from view on my Windows 10 device. It was there as recently as this past week (I use it frequently). It still shows (and contains bookmarks) when I look on my Android device under Desktop Bookmarks. Oddly enough, I decided to bookmark again one of the pages in the missing folder and the star next to the address indicated it's been bookmarked and the subfolder still shows up in the list when I attempted to bookmark it again. It also shows in the Bookmarks list when I go to Manage Bookmarks (as a subfolder where it has always been). Why is it not showing up when I try to access it from my bookmarks list when I click on the Show Your Bookmarks icon? It won't let me screen shot the dropdown menus.

I have a ton of unused tags that cannot be deleted. Apparently unused tags are supposed to be deleted automatically but for some reason they do not. These tags came from a Linux Firefox installation with the Linux distributions bookmarks.

Is there any way to manually delete them from Firefox?

I had a whole list of saved homepage landing sites that displayed when i open firefox they displayed above the main url/searchbar as shown in screenshot. These have all been deleted and i will need to spend hours to go and look them all up again . are these saved in any config files that i can re-add them ? Why are these being deleted and if this is not going to be saved going forward why do you still make this functionality available ? second, larger screenshot.

Please advise, this is the main reason I use firefox .... all previous updates these URL's remained until now, but if going fwd you dont support , i would suggest you remove the functionality. and I will remove firefox.

Hi All, I am using firefox on my work laptop and it was working fine, until today that it was updated to the new version: 94.0.2 (64-bit)

I noticed that the new version was very fast, so I decided to switch from Chrome to Firefox. I imported all my logins and bookmarks, but when I go to a website, in the part where I should enter my login information, the drop-down menu does not show up, even though I have several saves usernames and passwords! I tried entering my logins manually into the password manager, but they still do not show up. The previous saved logins show up and work fine. But the new ones don't. Can you help me solve this issue? the image shows what I mean. The older login that was saved before the new update shows, but none of the other 4 logins that I imported or manually entered into the password manager show up.

I was recently watching a Twitch livestream when I stepped away from my PC for a moment and upon returning found it sitting at the login screen. Checking eventvwr it showed a BSOD event had occurred. The only thing actively running on my PC was FireFox with a single tab for Twitch.

Level: Critical Source: Kernal-Power Event ID: 41 BugCheckCode: 307 decimal, 0x133 hex

Windows documentation lists hex 0x133 as a DPC_WATCHDOG_VIOLATION error, and since Parameter 1 was a '0', it states, "A single DPC or ISR exceeded its time allotment. The offending component can usually be identified with a stack trace." https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/bug-check-0x133-dpc-watchdog-violation

From Windows Debugging Tools I loaded up the DMP file and ran !analyze to see the process name listed as FF (there's more information listed, just not sure it's really useful).

I checked FF `about:crashes` and it doesn't show any crash report there (presumably because the system BSOD and it did not have a chance to do anything).

Just wondering if anyone else has seen this issue and how/if they resolved it. In searching around it seemed like some folks suggested disabling hardware acceleration as there may be incompatibility issues with FF and GPU drivers. I checked under FF settings and it has "Use recommended performance settings" enabled, but there are no sub-options specific for hardware acceleration.

Some basic system specs: MoBo: Gigabyte B550 Vision D-P (BIOS F13e, latest available) CPU: AMX Ryzen 7 5800X GPU: Gigabyte GeForce 3060Ti (driver 30.0.14.7141, latest one available)

Running on FF 94.0.2 (64-bit), the latest update.

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

I installed firefox on my new Windows 10 laptop and found that there is a persistent white bar at the top of my screen for some reason.

I suddenly can't watch my Youtube TV account. Every time I try to play a feed or a recording it takes a little bit to load then a message appears saying "Sorry, there was an error licensing the video." I've checked my Youtube TV account and everything checks out, restarted my browser, started browser in safe mode. I tried using Internet Explorer and it worked on that, then it worked on Firefox. I closed the Internet Explorer then the Firefox stopped working. Not sure what's going on.
