Hi,

A few months back I turned on the permanent overwrite of the colour - to a custom colour - of visited links under General > Language and Appearance > Colour (I believe). I've since gone back to try and turn off this setting but nothing I seem to do in any arrangement of settings changes it.

As of now, all previously visited links show as purple, even if the website would've previous kept their colour unchanged after clicking. What I want to do is either stop links from changing colour after clicking them, or revert this setting to the Firefox default.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hello,

I love your browser. However, I have noticed that with each update the menu size has gotten smaller and smaller. Can you please tell me where I can make the adjustment size to my preference. I have looked for addons, and through countless old videos trying to accomplish this but it's simply not happening.

I have the current version for 64bit systems, which is 96.0.1. Please help.

For over a year (just over a year on this computer and a few more years on a different computer) I have had a custom theme at the top appearing from the file menu through the address bar. The computers have also always had the New Tab menu being a light colored screen. I turn on the computer today, to find I guess Firefox updated last night? and completely got rid of the lightness of that page to make it dark, leaving me on the verge of a migraine every time I have to look at that thing.

How do I get rid of that dark page, back to the lighter version WITHOUT getting rid of my custom banner at the top? (yes I tried to use the light extension in theme and that gets rid of the banner and leaves me with a horrible white at the top which is just as big of an issue for me as all the black. I really need that like muted Tan back.)

Hello since the update to FF 96 I noticed that the container indicator for the current tab was a few pixel lower than the indicator for other tabs.

Since this was not happening in troubleshoot mode I tried disabling my addons one by one and found that the problem was caused by Firefox Color: any change from the default FF theme (including selecting one of the FF Colors preset themes) moves the container indicator downward.

I also tested this on a new browser profile, installing only Multi-account Containers and FF Color and it looks the same, so this is not caused by other customizations on my browser.

Is this a bug in FF Color? Or something I can solve changing a configuration?

I have reloaded Firefox on my computer, as default browser.

I changed to another browser for about 2 weeks, and decided Firefox was the browser for me, but I can't seem to get a "clippingsbackup" to open on my computer.

It doesn't look like I have any clippings at this time, I don't remember getting rid of all past firefox information, when I changed browsers, but something is different now

Hello all, Yesterday I tried to add another website to the rows of shortcuts. As usual I entered the Title, the website url and another url for the custom image location(optional)

However, this time after clicking the Preview button it does display an image, BUT after clicking the Save button it does not display the thumbnail image on the actual tile.

I tried it now with several different websites and NONE are displaying the images. I do have three rows of shortcut tiles with websites that DO display the thumbnail image but those are all from a few weeks back.

Why is this suddenly not working correctly any more??

The screenshot/snipping tool was a great addition to Firefox and I use it regularly. However I'm writing a tutorial on Google Maps at the moment and it would be nice if I had the option to select the same region of screen each time as I invoke some of Google Map's tools. So ideally I could lock the selection rectangle position and also its dimensions as I snapshot each page to show the steps involved in using Map's tool. Preset aspect ratios for the selection rectangle would be useful also. Maybe it's possible to do all this already?

Hi! I have several tabs open at once. In one, I am watching a TV show on Hulu; in another, I have a timer running (I am watching a show while exercising). The problem I am facing is that if I increase my computer's volume loud enough that I can hear the show, then when the timer goes off it is painfully loud. Is there a way to control the volume within Firefox such that the Hulu tab's volume is at, say, 80%, while the timer tab's volume is at, say, 20%? Thanks!

On this page, Mozilla says that I can "Assign a website to a container, so that a specific website will always open in a specific container. This helps protect from accidents, stopping you from accidentally visiting a shopping site in your banking container, for example."

But under Settings > Container Tabs > Settings, I don't see that option anywhere.

I'm using Firefox on Ubuntu, Linux. Recently, when launching a webapp of mine on localhost (port 4200 for the record, but I don't think that's relevant to the issue), and opening it in Firefox, the browser asks me in what application I want to open the localhost link. I just want to open it as a webpage, but I am forced to type "http://localhost:<port>" rather than just "localhost:<port>". It's not a major problem, but it is inconvenient to have to type "http://" everytime I want to open a local webapp in a browser window. I've looked around in Settings, and I found that "localhost" is listed as a content type under "Applications", but I'm not able to tell Firefox to not open the content in an external app. Is there a way to resolve this?

Hello everyone,

whenever I play a video in fullscreen mode, the system panel is not visible on the other display.

For example, the fullscreen video is playing on the secondary display, while on the integrated one there are no windows open. If I click on the desktop, the panel will be shown again but the focus won't be on Firefox, so I can't control the video with my keyboard.

Is there a way to change this behaviour? I've already tried tinkering with the settings in about:config but I couldn't find the solution.

Hello,

I am deploying Firefox to Windows 10 devices using Mozilla's latest template and I want to enable HTTPS-Only mode under "Privacy & Security" when I deploy Firefox using Intune. I have gone through all the options available here, but I did not find such an option.

Firefox is deployed and it takes other customization and settings changes I make. Which means my admx file is working fine.

If the option to enable HTTPS-Only mode via Intune using admx is not yet possible, I would like to know if there is a way to deploy HTTPS-Everywhere with the option "Encrypt All Sites Eligible" ON.

Thanks.

I had same extensions running with Firefox in Windows 10 and I installed them in Firefox in Windows 11 and the icons do not show up. I installed/uninstalled/turned off the extensions and reactivated them. Nothing works. The icons will not show up and with one of the password managers the icon needs to show so that you can click on it and activate it. Also Malwarebytes Browser guard has the same issues. None of these problems occurs in Microsoft Edge. Seems Firefox is not ready for Windows 11 and I will not be able to use it as just too much work to try and rectify these problems.

For years I've had the same problem of basic resets on my custom settings everytime Firefox updates. I've read hundreds of posts, complaints and suggestions.

The best suggestions I've found are to use both userContent.css and changes to the about:config file. I have actually created a .txt file of unique about:config lines and settings so I can copy, paste, and set to my settings without having to look everything back up again. It still takes me 10 minutes, but at least it gets done my way.

A solution I think all of us would love to see are simple instructions on how to back up the current about:config settings and reinstate them AFTER an update so our choices stay as we want them. This shouldn't be too difficult. Export settings are available for all kinds of parts of Firefox, Thunderbird and add-ons. How about making that a priority in the next update?

When the latest iteration of Firefox loaded, all my settings for the appearance of Firefox changed. Everything was in dark mode, and the normal color and formatting of web pages were gone. Everything

was black!

I looked through the Settings section but didn't find any "dark/night mode//light/day mode" settings. I tried going through your knowledge base, but I couldn't find anything that helped. Under "General/Language and Appearance/Colors" I made sure it was set to System Colors, changed the Override colors setting from "Only with High Contrast themes" to "Never" and that helped return some websites to their default colors, but other areas such as the Bookmarks sidebar and some websites that never were black before continue to be black (e.g. Twitter).

Any suggestions? [BTW, I don't feel competent enough to manipulate the "about:config" settings without royally screwing things up.]

Current system: Windows 10, latest update (updated this morning); Firefox version 96.0 (also updated this morning, after the Windows update).

I really do like the new colors and I switch between them often. What is motivating you to remove them starting with Firefox 96? Do I really have to turn off auto update to make sure I have my favorite Colorway enabled before the update?

You've adopted two common phrases and tried to apply them to Colorways:

1 - "limited time only" - This usually means you just have to acquire it during a limited time window; you don't lose it after the time window has passed.

2 - "limited edition" - This usually means a limited number of people can acquire it.

Based on my understanding, neither phrase applies to your Colorways offering.

Would you please reconsider? Mozilla is one of my year-end charitable contributions; does that give me any more clout? :)
