I have been using the same custom theme for the past 3 years or so on both my windows 10 pro and dual boot Ubuntu 20.04. Recently, my windows 10 pro firefox started going into dark mode all of a sudden without me changing ANYTHING. The system theme and everything else stays the same. Then about 5 days later, my Ubuntu 20.04 firefox started to inherit this stupid dark mode as well. I have tried _ setting ui.systemUsesDarkTheme to 0 (number value) in about:config _ Changing to other custom color themes, and they all went into dark mode. _ Refresh Firefox _ Reinstall Firefox

When I went into "Ads on & theme" tabs, changing to system theme, it picks up the white theme mode. But Youtube webpage system theme mode pick up the dark theme mode.

I prefer Firefox to Chrome but Chrome has it this way for preferences and history, where you can even bookmark it. It treats history, settings and downloads as a page or a tab in its own right, which can be bookmarked, which I prefer. I was wondering if you could do this for FireFox, or via an add-on or if a request could be issued.

Hi there, I recently refreshed my firefox browser and since then most of my addons don't work and stuck on loading.

After some inspections and opening the their console log, they all return the same errors: Unchecked lastError value: Error: Could not establish connection. Receiving end does not exist.

   sendMessageToTab moz-extension://0d7987e4-a999-409d-bbb5-36412076c686/content/scripts/SymBfw.js:112

the complete log of one of them (dark reader) can be found here https://pastebin.com/4tqd1A4H

I tried to refresh the browser again, and even reinstall it but the problem persist and now affect almost all of the addons installed (dark reader, adblock, norton password manager)

I get the same error log from foxy-gestures and facebook container, but they seem to work just fine and the error log doenst repeat it self every few seconds.

p.s. The browser is updated..

I like to have my Favorites Icon in the exact middle of the screen. I was able to do this by first adjusting the URL vs Search sizes with the drag and THEN with customize add the Favorites icon between them. After a recent update this no longer works. When I add in the icon the URL & Search bars jump back to their original position. They no longer remember where they were set. This is definitely different, and a loss.

Hello, I'm having a problem with the address bar that is driving me insane and I hope someone here can help me...

I am used to visiting facebook by typing in "fb" in the address bar and then clicking on the first link in google. I know, not the fastest way to reach facebook, but I just got used to it too much...

However, few days ago, firefox started asking me (in a ribbon popup under the toolbar) something along the lines of "Do you want to go to fb instead?" (not 100% sure if this was the exact question) and sometime later I stupidly clicked "Yes". Now whenever I type in address bar "fb" and hit enter, it automatically goes to http://fb/, which of course is a bad link and I only get to a page of my ISP??.

What is going on? how do I delete this visit link? I spent whole day searching on google and trying various accepted answers that suggest editing userChrome.css or toggling some settings in about:settings. None of these solutions work for me. Farthest I got was with editing the .css so that the visit link is hidden, but in reality the link is still there and when I hit enter it still takes me to the http://fb/ site.

Thank you and cheers!

I stupidly update firefox (76 > 77) and malwarebytes (see subject) on a single reboot. Went to run firefox and malwarebytes gives me a ransomware alert and closes firefox.

After some grumbling and other noises, I manged to get firefox running in safe mode and disables all add-ons. Firefox runs like a dream. Started to return add-ons one-by-one and soon had a list of issues (I gave up after five add-ons as it was just driving me mad to re-install firebox after malwarebytes quarantined it.

Of the five add-ons, three have caused the ransomware alert: Ghostery (alert), Start Page (OK), No Script (alert) OneNote (OK) and Save Page (alter).

Is anyone else having issues with the latest malwarebytes update?

I have submitted a support request to malwarebytes.

When opening a new tab from my Yahoo homepage, I would automatically see a page with buttons at the top of my most commonly used websites---amazon, my email, my bank, etc.

Below those buttons would be links to about a dozen feature-length articles (each link had an image and brief description of the article) from different online news and magazine sources (WAPO, NY Times, New Yorker, Esquire, Vox, etc.) These articles were feature articles and not ads, and they varied in length.

Someone was working on updating my Windows 10 and now I can't access that page. I don't have a name for that page but I do miss it. How can I access that page again?

Hi,

since the new, yet discussed, Firefox Browser update I've had a problem with the minimize, resize and close buttons on the top right corner of the Firefox window on my laptop. My problem is that those buttons are not integrated into the Firefox window itself.

What I mean is that to accommodate those buttons there is a white long bar all across the top part of the window with the "XXX site - Mozilla Firefox" title at the left and the "_ ⬜ X" icons on the right, while on my Desktop version those buttons are well integrated into the black (my theme color) part of the Firefox window, being at the same height as opened tabs (the said position of the icons on my desktop is represented by the white rectangle drawn on the attached picture (red lines are censored bookmarks and information)).

Is there a way to get rid of that white top strip and integrate the minimize, resize and close buttons in the Firefox window itself?

Thanks very much in advance for any help or reply!
