On my personal computer under language settings I have a checkbox with the following text: "Use your operating system settings for “English (Sweden)” to format dates, times, numbers, and measurements."

That checkbox is however missing on my work computer despite both having Firefox 89, Windows 10 and the same windows-settings for dates, times etc.

This is creating problems for me when I browse using Firefox and I would like to fix it.

Hi there,

I have tried to change the firefox default colours. I have tried color.firefox.com and userChrome.css, but I cant get to --in-content-primary-button-background:

host, :root {

--in-content-primary-button-background: rgb(119, 0, 255) !important; }

neither rgb(119, 0, 255) nor #7700ff seem to work.

How can I change this value?

Kind regards, Ben

I found the exact thread that discusses this issue, but of course comments are closed. So this is what I need. I need the colors from the previous browser. This new one blows and I have good eyes. But I agree with everyone who said to return the colors to what we've used for the past however many years (10+?) on Firefox. Also I need:

the tab bar redesign => change floating buttons back to connected tabs

the tab bar redesign => restore lines between the inactive/background tabs the theme => restore dark background behind tabs

I need this to happen without expecting me to mess around with code. I just need this to be restored. I need a fix that isn't prefaced by "not sure how long this will work." I need to not spend anymore time on this experimenting with random "custom" colors that just aren't right, because I can't remember exactly what it used to look like. I didn't have this info in my brain because I didn't know I would need it. The new themes are crap and hard on the eyes. I need Firefox to restore the "classic" option as a simple theme one can select. ARGH.

Hello,

I'm using Firefox 89.0 (64 Bit) and I was wondering if it is possible to disable the shortcuts or hot keys. I use Azure Devops to create test cases. The test case editior uses shortcuts like CTRL + B to make text bold. But this interferes with the Firefox shortkeys. Currently the only way for me to format text in Azure Devops is to use the mouse which is very unconvenient.

My shortcuts had large images on them and now they are half the size, but the shortcut is still the same size. How do I make larger images or go back to the theme I had before the last update. I'm using Firefox browser 89.0 (64 bit) for Linux mint. I hate this new theme. I'm getting older and sometimes my eyes don't work like before and I have to read the text. Images are easier for me to see. Don't make things that I have to accept. Thank you.

Hi. I use a web-based program for work. Each page has a set of built-in keyboard shortcut I can use to speed up work. After switching to FireFox, I lost that ability and see FireFox menu instead. I thought Alt-key was the issue, so I disabled it in FireFox, but that didn't really address my issue. Is there a way to enable keyboard shortcut? Not FireFox keyboard shortcut, but what's on the website. Thank you for your help.

I'm looking for help with using GPO's to control Firefox settings. When I modify anything in the Preferences section, the GPO description says to use JSON to configure and has a github website. At the github website, there are two examples. Should I be using the Windows GPO example or the policies.json example? Also, in both examples, entries have a "status" value, where does this come from?

The search engines I've added do not appear in the list after clicking the green + sign in the search box and they do not appear in the list in the options either. I used the "add more search engines" found in the bottom of the search engines list to find the missing engines and add them again, but when I find the engine I want to add there is only the "remove" button. So this tells me the missing engines in the list are still there but not accessible. I tried removing the added search engine and then adding it again but this did not make them appear in the search engine list. Everything was working fine until getting the last update before Firefox 89. Is there a way to fix this???

This is a confession of a long-time user who has never dug deeper into the extension’s settings. Version 1.32.0 is currently installed.

When opening Gmail in the past I’d noticed no more than 1 or 2 displayed in the extensions toolbar for that site. . This of course changed over time, especially if certain email messages were opened where I’d allowed images to be displayed. Lately though, without even having selected/opened any messages, that number is now 20. What could be the cause or reason for this increase?

Sometimes there's a delay in a website being recognized and log in info filled in, sometimes its never recognized like just now with accounts.firefox.com yet its in my Passwords. URL was checked and was identical in both. You'd think Firefox would recognize firefox.com!

Sometimes it fills in the password after I have entered the username. This is for sites like Firefox.com that don't have the username and password on one page but sometimes its happened when both are on the same page. But shouldn't it recognize the username or does it have to have both on the page? Is there any way of making these types of pages work properly? This is not high security. As if I could care less what people read or know what I'm posting in a forum like this on the operation of a browser.

My google searching is leaving me at a loss here. I did something and the taskbar at the bottom of the web browser is now covered by the browser. Not the bar at the top, the bar at the bottom that has whatever other programs you're running listed in multiple tabs. Every single damn search is leading to how to mess with the task/toolbar at the top of the freakin page. I can make it reappear if I press the windows button or open another program, but while in Firefox it's not visible. The top taskbar, bookmarks, and all are still there so it's not in full page mode. I know the fix is probably ctrl and some other button somewhere but what?

Firefox 89 introduced super-extra-duper fatty bold fonts. Fatter than the Futura bold fonts. I want to get rid of this uglyfaced font that is hardly readable on non-retina screens.

Tried to lower the level of [ layout.css.font-visibility.level ] from default 3 to 1 ... doesn't do anything.

Do the Mozillians really believe that every FF user has a Retina type screen before their eyes ? With the 20/20 vision of Superman ? What were the devs thinking ???
