Using Options>Colors>I changed the background to "Black" and left the font "White", which was the default. I wanted ONLY the BLANK homepage black. I have a dark theme made by MaDonna. Immediately something altered, FF blinked (so to speak) and next ALL pages are a black background, including ALL webpages. Using FF instructions, I got back to a white blank homepage, but all the webpages have remained black. I've tried every combination (shown on your instruction page) to get back to a "white" background on the webpages. The "Always," "Never," only on ?? themes, clearing cache, returning to defaults, & I can still change the BLANK HOMEPAGE to either black or white, but nothing changes the webpages back to their normal views - white backgrounds. The only thing I haven't done is remove all cookies, because I truly do not want to do that.

I saw the question and it seemed to me similar, but there is a lot of code and I don’t know what exactly is needed in my case - https://support.mozilla.org/ru/questions/1274416#answer-1279083

In my userChrome.css I use only this:


#navigator-toolbox {
  display: flex;
  flex-direction: column;
}

#titlebar {
  order: 2;
}

to move tabs to bottom.

In the now current verusion of FF (72.0 - 64 bit) the indicator when you are dragging/dropping a tab like has been made almost invisible. It is now a VERY faint light blue and looks to be only 1px wide. It is VERY difficult to see for many with limited vision. How do I get the previous drag/drop indicator back so I know where I am dropping the tab being moved?

Firefox offers the option to "Fill login" through the context menu (see attached image) when ever in a login or password field. However I am using Bitwarden instead of the Firefox password manager and disabled saving passwords in Firefox. Is there a way to remove this "Fill login" action as it always just shows that no logins are saved?

Thanks, Mattias

Hello,

I noticed a few hours ago that my Google search in Japanese was now displayed in an ugly font I have no memory of (could not identify it, attached a screenshot just in case).

I tried to change my settings for Japanese in Languages and Appearance, but no matter what, this unknown font remains the apparent default on sites such as SUMO and google.com.

I just refreshed Firefox to no avail.

Am I not looking in the right place?

Hi, I hope you're having a wonderful day, and I hope someone can help me with this.

3 days ago, I accidentally press a hotkey, then the web page becomes smaller, and has empty space around it (screenshot: https://ibb.co/RQ74q3Z ). I attached the screenshot below, too. This doesn't affect other web pages. When I open the same page from my other computer, it happens the same way. I tried [ctrl +] and [ctrl -], but it only changes the font size and doesn't make the space go away.

Thank you for your help.

Even though the XLSX file in the example (images attached) is identified as such, when trying to open the file, the Launch Application window appears which is for files of "file" Content Type. This started occurring about 3 months ago, after a Firefox Update. I do not know to which version unfortunately. It affects all users so it's not profile related. I tried to Refresh Firefox and Restart with Add-ons Disabled from Tools > Help > Troubleshooting information but it didn't help.

I had about 7 or 8 favorite sites in a menu bar across the top of my firefox screen. I did something to make them disappear. I don't know how to get them back. To create them I just grabbed the URL and moved it to this bar, and it would then become a clickable link after that. I can't find out how to create them again.

I am using web-ext to get my extension signed from firefox. Recently, I have noticed that the time it takes to get it signed has increased drastically.

My gradle task is defined as:


task signFirefoxExtension(dependsOn: ['webExtension', 'npmInstall']) {

   doLast {
       exec {
           // retrieve the node bin path to set the PATH environment
           String nodeBin = file("${project.projectDir}/node").list()[0]
           environment("PATH", "${project.projectDir}/node/$nodeBin/bin:\$PATH")
           commandLine "mkdir", "-p", "$buildDir/browser-extension/firefox/extensions"
           commandLine "${project.projectDir}/node_modules/.bin/web-ext", "sign",
                       "-s", "$buildDir/tmp/webext",
                       "-a", "$buildDir/tmp/webext",
                       "--verbose",
                       "--timeout=300000",
                       "--channel", "unlisted",
                       "--api-key=<KEY>",
                       "--api-secret=<SECRET>"
           standardOutput = new FileOutputStream("${buildDir}/tmp/web-ext.out");
       }
   }

}

I have configured 5 min for the signing timeout but I am seeing frequent timeouts.

Are there others out there facing the same problem? Is there anything that can be done to make this signing faster?

I need to bring up a url with http and not https. However, FireFox keeps changing the url from thing I need (http://) to the thing I do not need (https://).

To try stopping this action I verified the browser has absolutely nothing stored in cache or browser data.

Safe mode in FireFox made no difference.

I also turned off the Apache software on the server hosting the site. When that did not alleviate the problem, I disconnected my computer from the internet. FireFox continues to change the url, adding the s in https.

1) Where do I find the "Firefox smart search field" that starts proposing pages when I have keyed in just the couple of first letters of the page I am looking for ?

2) I just wish to "lock" my Firefox page size to 120% (not permanently forever, of course) because at present I have to change it in the beginning of every web-session by opening the Firefox menu at right upper hand corner and choosing 120% in the "page size" option.
