I'd like to help you all at Mozilla in the evenings. I have just one issue with that. I have installed Linux Mint Cinnamon and made my theme dark and downloaded the add-on "Dark Background and Light Text". It is almost 100% wonderful. Redshift is activated too, in order to avoid the blue light, so that I will keep the rhythm of my sleep. I love it.

However. Every time I start a new window in Firefox or click the "+" my whole screen turns WHITE!!! This is VERY annoying. I want it to be dark, of course. This is also an issue if I am going to help you out at Mozilla in the evenings. Dark Background and Light Text does not work in your own forum. Why not integrate this add-on into Firefox?

In my opinion this is a very high priority issue, not only for this reason, but considering that we will all would save energy, batteries and the environment when using AMOLED technology together with Firefox, especially if it is very easy for the users to discover and to activate.

Not a serious bug, but firefox warns about cancelling downloads when trying to switch profiles without actually exiting the browser. Please take a look at the attached image.

If I somehow click on "Cancel 1 Download", it does nothing, just launches the profile I am launching. So the warning actually means nothing, and should be removed.

Thanks.

Using Firefox 79.0 (64-it) and fedora 32 OS I've noticed there is not an option to minimize the browser window anymore. I use to be able to right-click on the menu-bar and one of the options would be to minimize the Firefox window. Only options now are radio buttons for Menu Bar and Bookmarks Toolbar. Is this a bug are intentional can this functionality be restored? Regards.

Those values are not honored by the ctrl + mouse wheel zoom. The mouse wheel only uses increments of 10%. So how do I fix it so the mouse wheel zoom honors toolkit.zoomManager.zoomValues?

I've got multiple clients set up to sync via FF sync. Some are older, some are newer.

However, looking at the newest client (set up ~2 weeks ago), I noticed something: It only shows a browser history up to approx. one year in the past. I've checked other clients. My oldes client goes back to ~2016, which is 4 years form now. I know my oldes client is older than 2016, so there has to be more.

Does FF Sync skip older entries? IMHO I'd have to see the exact same history on my older client than on my newer client. That is not the case. Any ideas?

When I zoom in (with ctrl+= for example) images are rendered with heavy interpolation / blurring. Usually I want to see individual pixels as discrete, blur-less squares.

Is there any way to change it so Firefox renders without interpolation? I am using Firefox 71.0 Operating system: Linux Mint 19.3

attempting to login to Firefox sync I'm told the system has just locked my account - which is odd because I just logged in with the account to log this issue. Message is : "Sorry. We’ve locked your account.

The confirmation email we sent to xxxxxx@gmail.com was returned and we’ve locked your account to protect your Firefox data.

If this is a valid email address, let us know and we can help unlock your account."

There is nothing wrong with my gmail account either - I checked gmail is not bouncing mail back sent to my address.
