I've been using global mouse gestures to control firefox externally via marionette, and I found that after upgrading from 87 to 88, many pages don't log in properly (like google). So I stopped updating. Recently I started to feel anxious and I looked for the reason. I found that it was because the "dom.webdriver.enabled" parameter was removed, from here https://stackoverflow.com/questions/67323487/selenium-w-firefox-88-changes-to-navigator-webdriver

I would like to ask for a follow-up solution after this parameter has been removed. Is there a new parameter to replace it? Is there another way to fix it and make the page login properly? Or does mozilla consider it normal to not be able to log in and forbid the use of marionette invisibly?

I would like to know the exact answer, thanks.

Everything was fine until the update! Now the surround bit and tabs and my taskbar are light grey. I've tried changing them in Start... settings and checking the box for start and tabs but that's grey'ed out. I've tried doing it in settings.. themes in firefox. I looked at Chrome and it's dark blue which was my original firefox colour. I'm not sure why they changed it to grey. I cant see anything and it's hurting my eyes. I can move over to Chrome and try to import all my bookmarks etc, but before I do, can anyone tell me is there a way to change the grey back to blue? If there is, is there any way to stop them doing this again? Thank you, I so appreciate anyone's help with this.

Immediately after installing the latest major update (89.0) I began experiencing problems when clicking a link opened a new tab. Sometimes is was very slow to make the connection & sometimes it would time out. Not all the time & not all links. Sometimes it would work fine but I'd have problems with the same link the next time.

On my personal computer under language settings I have a checkbox with the following text: "Use your operating system settings for “English (Sweden)” to format dates, times, numbers, and measurements."

That checkbox is however missing on my work computer despite both having Firefox 89, Windows 10 and the same windows-settings for dates, times etc.

This is creating problems for me when I browse using Firefox and I would like to fix it.

I used to have a nice blue strip across the top of any active window. It is now grey, which I find depressing and it is no longer possible to see when a window has gone inactive. How do I get my blue back? I tried downloading Firefox colors but when I tried to use it it wouldn't load, I waited and waited then gave up. I cannot take a screenshot of the strip I am talking about as is it outside the screenshot field. (Above it.) Many thanks, Kitty

Hi,

When printing from a webpage we use to generate receipts for payment the pages are coming out with the edges cut off. I am not having this issue in EDGE.

My current workaround is to PRINT to PDF and print from ADOBE PDF which works. However, we are hoping we can get Firefox to print the page without cutting off the right and left edges. I tinkered in some of the about:config printer settings and everything anyone has suggested that I have gotten from a quick google search seems to be configured correctly.

Any suggestions? I cannot provide an example due to it being a payment receipt for healthcare services.

Thank you!

I updated to ver 89.0. After update the tabs all changed to non-descipt grey with no outlining and the menu bar lost its blue colour which allows me to see the active window for any processes running on my setup. I often have multiple Firefox windows open at once. All other windows behave as before i.e. the active window shows a blue menu bar while all others are off-white. It is just Firefox that has changed.

I don't use Windows Themes but use WinAero to tweak the defaults.

How can I get Firefox to show the active window with a blue menu bar, as before, and the non-active Firefox windows can be any other colour but preferably the same as other inactive windows? This is a typical time waster update that I had thought Firefox was free from unlike Windows. If this can't be fixed I will need to consider whether I use an other browser that doesn't foul up a useful feature that saves me time - I have been with Firefox for more years than I can remember. Another annoyance is having to make yet another registration just to ask a question!

When I start Firefox, my saved tabs all load up reasonably quickly. However, the saved yahoo mail tab does nothing. If I close the tab and open a new tab, then enter www.yahoo.com as URL, nothing happens. Enter any other URL and it loads immediately. (I have a 1G internet). If I bring up Chrome and enter yahoo.com, it loads immediately. Whether I enter www.yahoo.com or select the yahoo mail icon from the toolbar or the yahoo icon on the Firefox new tab page, nothing happens. In the case of selecting the yahoo icon on the Firefox new tab page, the URL does not even show up in the URL space. After a few minutes it may fix itself, more quickly for yahoo.com vs the mail URL.

What is happening?

As others have reported, Firefox will suddenly close. There are no warnings and it doesn't freeze it just turns off.

As a WordPress web developer, I have lost hours of work due to this issue. When the browser closes, my work is lost.

I have installed the latest & greatest video driver (and the driver of everything else.) I have minimal add-ons.

I have seen several other threads and no posted solution. Should I start using another browser?

I’ve seen other posts on this problem and seen different solutions, some of which I’m not understanding, and some of which seem relevant to a particular problem not similar to mine.

I am using FF 89.0 64 bit on Win10 machine. Many times, when I restart Windows, especially if there has been a FF update, several things happen. One, which always happens, is that FF “forgets” that it is already the default browser. Two, which happens often, is my setting for “Ask to save logins and passwords for websites” gets changed to “no.” But occasionally, and this is the reason I’m writing, is clicks on external links open a new window, rather than a new tab (and this time, it’s always a small window which won’t respond to alt spacebar X to maximize it). I’ve checked about:config (don’t remember what page) per another web search, and confirmed that FF is set to open a new tab for internal links and to do the same for external links as is done for internal links. I’ve gone to about profiles and it shows three profiles, two of which say they are in use, so apparently the click on the internal link is opening a new profile. (I don’t care about profiles; I tried them once for some reason I no longer remember and it didn’t work so I don’t care about profiles). So can anyone guide me on what I need to do? The default profile has “beta” in it, but this was a long time ago. The “easiest” thing might be getting rid of all my profiles but I don’t know how to do that, and I certainly don’t want to have FF forget all my passwords, etc. I greatly appreciate any help I can get.

Hi there,

I have tried to change the firefox default colours. I have tried color.firefox.com and userChrome.css, but I cant get to --in-content-primary-button-background:

host, :root {

--in-content-primary-button-background: rgb(119, 0, 255) !important; }

neither rgb(119, 0, 255) nor #7700ff seem to work.

How can I change this value?

Kind regards, Ben
