Hi, I am using the most recent firefox on windows 10. A few months ago with an update that occurred at the time, firefox suddenly switched to some sort of dark mode - ie all text was white with black background. I found others online with the same issue and with their help was able to change the main view back, however all the menu's and any popup dialogue options are still in this mode. I have attached a screen shot.

'I just downloaded Firefox in an attempt to break away from Google stranglehold (I also switched to Protonmail and DuckDuckGo). My issue is that I was unaware that there is an autozoom feature with FF. While for some people this is probably a godsend, for me it is slowly, but surely, driving me crazy.

I have searched for the answer online but have not found the solution ... please tell me that there is a way to shut this feature off

Hello! Just installed Ubuntu 20.04.4 on my laptop and now find that I'm not able to watch some YouTube videos on Firefox 97. It seems mainly just live streams that I can't watch. When I go to one it shows "Your browser can't play this video...Learn more" in the video window. Clicking Learn More takes me to a page that doesn't explain what the problem is. Any idea what the fix might be? The same videos play just fine on other devices on my network. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm running Mojave on an Imac. I have just installed Firefox 2, updating from an older Firefox. All bookmarks are saved in a bookmarks backup .jsonlz4 file in the original Firefox Profiles folder on the Mac. I have done Import & Backup / Restore / Choose file to no avail. Nothing happened, and there are no bookmarks under the bookmark dropdown on the new Firefox browser.

The path to the Profiles backup folder runs through several levels of hidden folders. Using Terminal, I've managed to unhide all but one stubborn Library folder that is preventing me from navigating to the Profiles backup file to select it for restoration. I managed to unhide the backup file itself and save a copy to the desktop. I'm guessing that the desktop copy is not going to help me, because I'll need the path to point back to the Profiles folder.

I'm stumped. How can I transfer these bookmarks to Firefox 2? It shouldn't be this hard.

After MickeySoft's Patch Tuesday today, I found that KB5010342 prevents Firefox from running. I'm running Win10 Pro with FF 97.0 64-bit and with this patch installed, FF opens with a blank screen and no DNS lookup or anything. Other browsers like Chrome or Edge load and work without issue. After manually uninstalling this patch, Firefox again works like it should.

Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

Suddenly, I am getting a faint box outline on the bottom right of my browser screen. This is not like the box for blocked ads, but just grey lines which look like there was supposed to be a three dimensional box shown there. The box does nothing and text and pictures show through it, though it does make things a bit hard to read at times. If I resize the window so that it is not full screen, only part of the box appears. It does not appear in other apps or programs. I have tried several different settings changes and refreshed Firefox, but the problem persists. I am running Windows 11, with an NVidea GeForce GTX 1080 video card.

Any suggestions, anyone? Thanks.

Firefox started to open in a small screen at the top left of the monitor, requiring two clicks to make normal size. Some Google suggestions seemed very complex but I found a simple solution from one result. Left click the enlarge tab, then click and drag the screen to full size. Solved. Best to look for a simple solution first before refreshing Firefox or trying registry fixes.

I had used Firefox's (Ff) suggested password for a popular site, saved the suggested password via Ff, and safely and frequently revisited the site.

Yet when I returned to the site today, the Ff saved password was 100's of characters long! This is not my password - what happened?

I contacted the site directly and they suggested talking with Ff as they believe the issue is on my end.

Since that time I changed the password, did not saved it via Ff, and when I return to the site still find the 100's of character password retained.

Ideas?

I'm not sure what topic to put this under, but I think I chose the best one.

It has been force closing and then won't open to any page (including the Google tab page). I keep getting an error that says "the code execution Cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140 DLL was not found". I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the app to no avail, I've tried completely shutting off my computer and doing %appdata% and completely getting it off my computer & nothing.

help please!
