As from v100.0, Firefox allows users to "set their preferred color schemes for websites".

Ironically, this does not addresses complaints from users, including me, who wish for a consistent Light theme all across Firefox.

Even if "Web site appearance" is set as Light, the following still remain dark:

  • Background of main drop-down menu (Containing "Sync and save data", "New tab", "Print", "Settings", etc)
  • Background of right-click menu (Containing the refresh icon, "Save page as", "View page source", etc)
  • Background of "Please enter primary password" menu
  • Background of auto-filled user name and password menus
  • Background of elements in a bookmark folder
  • Background of Downloads menu
  • Background of Print menu
  • Background of "Clear all history" menu
  • Background of "Find on this page" menu
  • Background of "You are about to close X tabs" warning menu
  • Colour of title bar for "About Mozilla Firefox" window, when the window is not currently active

Being able to set "browser.theme.toolbar-theme" permanently as 2 would fix all of the above, but users are still (Note: Since v96.0, when this complaint was raised) prevented from doing so. Why?

Dear Cor-el,

Thank you for responding and answering my question. You have helped me out gratefully! Your answer is right, easy to understand and to fulfill. I can move those icons from now on. Hereby I have an other question. I have more extensions added, but not all of those icons are shown in the toolbar. How do I realize that?

Real example I have in the toolbar 4 extension icons but I have 7 extension enabled. Where have been those other 3 icons?

Regards,

Van Lieren

Hello again:

I just asked the question about the panel to the left of the left panel...

My reason for wanting to remove this new 'panel' is because I can not see the full text of my emails now unless I close the Left Panel.

I do have a wide computer monitor... never had a problem viewing my emails until FF installed the upgrade to 84.0.1.

Thanks

[Locked as a duplicate of https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1352314. Please follow up there, thanks.]

Thanks Cor-el for replying with advice on how to use about:config to ensure the screencapture was toggled correctly. It wasn't and I corrected that. Now I have the icon in the toolbar and on the right click menu but when I attempt to use them all I get is a popup menu with a large black X in it and nothing can be done with it. Also, on the toolbar items that are added to it all appear in the overflow and there is no way of getting them to appear on the screen by reducing the size of the search bar. I've been using firefox ever since it first appeared and I've never had problems like this before.

Hover Higlighting for Firefox

I found the following css for highlighting all context menu items for Firefox 91 ESR (not working on side-bar items from hamburger menu)

/* Highlight context menu items */

menu[_moz-menuactive="true"], menuitem[_moz-menuactive="true"] {

 background-color: #e8eefd !important;  /* blue 95% lighter */
 color: #3d3dff !important; /* blue 62% darker */
 /* https://www.w3schools.com/colors/colors_picker.asp */

}

How do I apply the same highlighting shown by the red arrow to the text where grey and heavy blue is used for highlighting? I find css very convoluted and it's hard for me to know what ids/parameters to use to get the desired effects. Any help appreciated.

Hi,

Is it possible for Firefox to implement an easy and accessible profile manager just like Chrome rather than going through about:profiles?

I am using containers but need to separate work and personal workspace. Some of domains are overlapped like Google and Microsoft services. so separating by domains cannot work.

Dear all, it could be great if it could be possible to include in the "Sync" account of firefox all my configurations of Thunderbird.

In this way, for example, it could be also very simple to havea "web version" of "Thunderbird" with all my emails and configurations.

NOT ONLY!

By paying some € It could be great to store all my cripted e-mail on Firefox Send. That cuould be the future!

Have a great day! And thank you for your job! Carmine

Ironically, I have to use Google's Chromecast to log this question ...Because Firefox 1) Doesn't work, again, and 2) Mozilla offers zero ways to directly contact them

For the past several weeks, I constantly get error notifications: The "PR..." notice that indicated Search issues. I've read the information about it, resolve the issue for a day or two, and BOOM ...It's BACK! I do not have the time or wherewithal to continuously work to figure out and resolve poor browser coding issues. Today, I checked the "Set Defaults" option and it still doesn't work.

I'll check back in a couple weeks to see if an update has resolved the problem. Until then, I'll be 1) copying all my bookmarks (I still don't like their lousy Bookmark Mgmt process), and 2) using a different browser. Mozilla is wasting my time... They better hope I actually come back.

Users should not be expected to put up with BAD CODING for so long. At least not in the land of reality and multiple feasible browser choices.

What idiot thought it would be a great idea to replace "View Image" with "Open Image In New Tab"? Seriously? What the fracking hell. I used View Image all the time with a combination of Ctrl W to close tabs after saving images in bulk. Now you've deleted View Image to replace it with something dumber. Perhaps instead of replacing it, you should have altered its functionality to open a new tab if someone's holding Shift when they click it. Did you ever think of that? No, you were probably thinking about how to make Firefox worse. Ugh, why is firefox getting worse and worse with time? You guys keep taking away features and deliberately ruining the firefox experience, pretty soon its just gonna be another dumbed down clone of Chrome, the browser for the lower intellect. "Oh shame, too many buttons? Let us dumb it down for you. Configurations too complex? Here, we'll stupify it for you~ Its ok to be an ape level intelligence~"

You should be teaching people to be smarter, not bowing to their lower intellectual capabilities.

Now I've had to get a plugin to bring back the view image feature and this plugin actually does it better than you ever could have. Maybe its Mozilla thats getting dumber and not the rest of the world. Maybe their developers are losing intellect so they have to dumb down their own program so they can manage it. Who knows. I'm starting to suspect this.

Yea, I'm angry. You keep ruining Firefox.
