Are there any white text on black background color schemes that are complete? My search bar background color is bright white. My Unsorted Bookmarks Library window background is glaring bright white, can't see a thing in it.

I researched the issue and figured out how to change the URL address bar text and background color, using userChrome, but haven't been able to find anything on changing the Unsorted Bookmarks Library window background color or the search bar background color.

I haven't searched for the search bar background color, yet. Hopefully that one is easier to find than the Unsorted Bookmarks Library window background color setting.

Bookmarks > Unsorted Bookmarks > Library > BOOM! BRIGHT WHITE BACKGROUND

Thanks.

Hi, all I have a big problem about XULRunner. I can not find a nice solution on the internet. So I have to request you to give me some ideas. We know the XULRunner is nice solution when we want to embed a browser into desktop program which is thunderbird, firefox and so on. My questions are the following: 1. Can I execute a Java function accross the JAVASCript? We can execute javascript code in the JAVA, but I'm not sure I can do opposite it. 2. What is javaxpcom? If you did program like this, please give me some ideas, thanks very much.

We have an NPAPI Plugin which is embedding a Windows Application inside Firefox using the plugin container. The application we are embedding is being modified to support IA2 interface for it's various controls. When we embed this in IE (using BHO), it all works fine and JAWS works fine. But when we embed this in Firefox, as we hover over our application inside the FF tab, all we see is "Embedded Object", so basically FF is intercepting the messages and not letting the underlying window get hold of it and return appropriately. Even clicking inside out application doesn't help. Is there a way to tell Firefox that my add-on support IA2 so let it take care of it's own things?

My font change to italic then bold so fix it with downloading a font of windows and putting it to the font folder. After that restarted my computer and all font problem are back to normal but in Mozilla Firefox the problem is still there. YouTube title on videos are bold and the font is Segoe UI and when I check the default font in Firefox it is set to Segoe UI. When I change it back to the normal default font Times New Roman and click OK. Nothing happens and when I check it again in the option the default font is still Segoe UI. I tried the reset default on the troubleshooting mozilla and still the default font is Segoe UI. Can't change back the default font to Times New Roman. Need help!

Since FF 24 and also in 25 & 26 it keeps loosing the customisation of controls after new start or updates.

I always do this: "Customize navigation buttons like back, home, bookmarks & reload" - http://mzl.la/LqHj2n.

When I updated from 23 to 24/25/26 or have a FF crash in any of these versions, the customisation is back to default. I hate to redo this every time!

I want Fire Fox display its SEARCH RESULTS (not web pages) in the middle of the screen when using a WIDE SCREEN MONITOR (with text size 150% increased).

  • I guess the increased text size affects the length of text folded before reaching the right side end of the screen, but large font size is quite important for me, so changing the font size would not be a fix for this problem.

The link below is an image of my screen. http://www.fastpic.jp/images.php?file=8926352964.jpg The monitor resolution is 1920*1080. The right side is of the screen is empty so the best sitting position is in front of left side of the monitor and that is quite uncomfortable.

So would you please teach me how to 1. increase the left side margin (I guess this can be done with an add-on) 2. (Important) reduce the RIGHT SIDE MARGIN so that the text length toward the right side before folded be lengthened and the text be displayed toward the right side end.


Thank you for your kind help.

I switched to Firefox and Thunderbird after having a lot of trouble with MIE and Windows Live mail. I love them both and am very grateful to Mozilla. Now I have some problems with my hands and find voice recognition software a great boon.

I find I can do less with voice recognition in the Mozilla programs than in their Microsoft counterparts. Voice recognition "experts" tell me the reason is in the Mozilla programs rather than in the voice recognition software that I use.

Whether or not this is correct, I do not know. However, I don't want to be forced back to the Microsoft browser and email client, and so have posed my question to you.

I'm at my wit's end. I've installed the latest version of jre (7u45) and everything went well. Followed all the instructions here (http://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Installing_Java) and here (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/manual-plugin-install-linux-136395.html) on setting up symbolic links and all. libnpjp2.so is now happily residing in my /usr/lib/browser-plugins folder. And when I start Firefox, nothing appears under Plug-Ins.

I've tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling both java and firefox numerous times to no avail. Firefox absolutely refuses to recognize java. Not sure what to do now.

Our IT department—what a great way to start a question—does not roll out regular updates for Flash. To bridge this security gap for Firefox on my work computer, I copy the following files:

  • flashplayer.xpt
  • FlashPlayerPlugin_<version>.exe
  • FlashUtil32_<version>_Plugin.exe
  • NPSWF32_<version>.dll

from C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash on another machine and paste them to C:\Users\<myusername>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Plugins on my work machine. When Firefox starts, it scans the various locations (http://kb.mozillazine.org/Plugin_scanning) and finds both this version and of course the outdated version originally installed, which IT does not update (currently 11.1.102.55). This effectively updates Flash, and until IT finds a solution to distribute updates I'll have to continue to update Flash manually (Java is unfortunately not so easy to fix), but still leaves me with a problem.

My perceived problem is that Firefox still scans the default installation directory of Flash and thus finds the outdated version. Under Add-ons > Plug-ins, I can select from "Ask to Activate," "Always Activate" and "Never Activate." If I select "Ask to Activate" for the current version (12.0.0.43) and "Never Activate" for the old version (11.1.102.55), upon restarting Firefox it sets both to "Ask to Activate." I conclude that Firefox does not treat separate Flash versions independently. Since constantly being prompted to activate Flash is bothersome, I could just set both to "Always Activate," but that leaves an old, even-more-compromised-than-the-current version of Flash activated.

The best solution, I suppose, would be to uninstall the outdated version of Flash, but I don't have the administrative rights to do so, and don't want to pester our IT administrators. I could prevent Firefox from scanning the directories specified in the Windows registry for PLIDs (see above link), but this would prevent it from finding my also-outdated-but-only-installed Java Plug-In, which I keep thinking I need. The behavior I'm after is to prevent Firefox from scanning or finding the old Flash version, while still finding my Java Plug-in. How could I go about this?

Thanks

I have Firefox 26.0 installed (though this has happened in previous versions). I have been through all the previous questions about this problem, but none match what I'm seeing. It's happening to others accessing my web site. I have a sample web page that I have up that presents the problem at http://flory.net/gabl/docx.htm.

When I click on the link on the above page (an office 2007 word document .docx), I get a page of gibberish as though it downloads the file as a text document. I've been through all the steps I could find in support to fix this to no avail, including resetting all defaults, etc. .doc works great, but I cannot find anything in the Options/Applications that will allow me to modify/add info to handle neither .doc nor .docx.

The Firefox plugin checker is reporting "Update Now" for VLC media player Web Plugin 2.1.0. The 'update now' link invites me to download Plugin 2.1.2. but i already have 2.1.2 installed so the plugin checker is detecting the wrong version. I have had v2.1.2 installed since December 9th 2013 and run the plugin checker on a weekly basis so i'm not sure why it has suddenly decided that this is a vulnerable plugin.

I am running Firefox 26.0 on Windows XP
