When I start firefox, it boots up, but won't display any content. I just get a white screen. I've noticed when mousing around that everything works - hovering over where the search bar should be changes my cursor, clicking a the top right corner closes firefox, hitting ctrl+T opens a new tab, etc. Starting in safe mode does nothing, I've uninstalled and reinstalled after deleting all system folders, restarted my machine, even searched 'mozilla' in my file explorer and deleted everything that popped up. I'm at my wits end trying to fix this, any help would be necessary. I'm on the latest version of firefox. I've attached some screenshots of what it looks like. (polar bear in a snowstorm)

Please, I would like to know why my web page is not only visible in firefox in other browsers if it does. Something I have seen is that the code is present but is not displayed.

I have been an avid user of firefox since it's inception, I enjoy it's accessability, user friendsliness and have never had a use for customer support (until now). All of my downloaded firefox themes work, switching between them is no problem. I can add and remove add-ons with no problems aswell, but the moment I close firefox and start a new session (sorry, let me back track a tad, I customize my toolbar on a regular bases, I like the functionality and it makes it more personal). Ever since the mid February update every time I close firefox and reopen it my my add-ons in the toolbar are invisible and unusable. There isn't even an information pop-up when hovering over where they should be (technically they are still there). I'm running Windows 10 (fully updated just like all my programs). I took a snap shot of this message to illistrate my point, both my Ad-Blocker and Flash Downloader add-ons appear ro be missing and yet I know they are next to the library button.

I need help. I have told this to you over 3 times with ZERO response. I am having problems with the colors on Firefox in Windows 10. When I am using yahoo to write email I can not see the 24 different colors or 24 different highlights. Just 24 shaded boxes. They are all the same color, so I have no idea what I may or may not be typing. This is also happening all over the internet if I need to enter information in a web sites "box".

I am handicapped and I don't have much of a life. I was hurt at work in 1989 and I have had 8 back surgeries with lots of hardware and fixes to repair the bent titanium rods and screws. I have cadaver bone in my back, I have had one neck surgery with an artificial disc. My doctors are so good, now, that Dr. Tortolani was the surgeon who actually invented the artificial disc. I also have had both shoulders rotator cuffs rebuilt and Tommy John surgery on my right elbow.

I don't have a big life and using the internet to look around and send and read email is a big part of my day.

I have been using Firefox and Windows for a very long time and I am most happy with the two. My 95 pound black lab puppy destroyed my computer at the end of September. She is HUGE and the vet says she will end over 125 pounds. I got a very old Dell from my parents closet that had no problems with Firefox and yahoo email colors. It did have lots of other problems including a dead battery and tons of very old and slow programs. I now have a new, to me a Sony computer, from my brother who basically stripped this computer clean.

My brother and sister in law used Firefox but never had a color problem. I have been told that I have a very good computer now.

I have downloaded and reloaded Windows 10 and the latest versions of Firefox and Windows 10 over and over 30+ times. I have had help doing this, but without any help to me or my computer.

I have followed all of your instructions to reset the colors to default. More about that below.***

After doing all of this I can still not see the colors in yahoo email. I am also having problems all over the internet seeing where I might need to type something.

Just like above when you asked me to Summarize your question in a sentence. I could not find where to type that. I had to go to Microsoft Edge and bring up that page to see where I needed to type. All I could see was Can't find an answer? Summarize your question..... . That was just plain white area with black letters. I could not see the box to type in.

All over the internet if I need to type in a box, I have no idea where that box is. I get no error messages, nothing, this computer thinks everything is working just fine. There are more places this happens than you might think. Thank goodness I know where to type on Google. I can't see that either. I just know where to go after using google for a long time like years long time.

I have had help and tried myself a total of three times to do your Firefox color reset and that hasn't worked. I know so because of the warranty statement. I can't get that to work today. WHY???? Who knows.


I only know I did this correctly because I got the message about the warranty the first 2 times I tried to reset the colors to default. Today when I tried the color reset AGAIN, I couldn't get to the correct spot and try to restore the colors to the default. So I am doing something wrong today trying the reset today. If I only had to click one place then the computer takes over and does the 4 steps. MAYBE if there was a problem and the 4 steps did or could not complete I could send you the error message and Firefox gets back to me with what went wrong.

LIKE I STILL CAN'T SEE THE COLORS. 90% is just black writing. I have a signature that should be in red and blue. It is only in black so it is not like I can't see colors but they are there. Everything I send is just black.

I need someone to please get back to me with this. I am at my wits end. I love Firefox and I don't want to use Edge or Explorer. Chrome is completely out of the question. I will be more than happy to let someone into my computer and figure out what the problem is.

I have a lot of things not working in my life right now I really need some help with this. I thank you in advance so much that you all could figure out what is wrong with this computer and Firefox. The colors work in Edge and Explorer but I want to use Firefox as that is what I know and use.

I know their is probably something very simple that you people at Firefox know what and how to fix this. I know, I worked at a call center for Southwestern Bell for 3 years, that you guys show to others how crazy problems that people need help with. I just need a few minutes of your time. I am more than happy to talk on the phone or chat or letting you look around in my computer. It's probably an easy 5 minute fix.

I thank you in advance for helping me, PLEASE.

I am more than happy to help to do tests........ Follow through. Sometimes, our volunteers would ask you for more information or to test out certain scenarios. The sooner you can do this, the sooner they would know how to fix it.



      • (SIDE NOTE) Why when I know what the problem is. Exactly like this problem. You tell me to do 4 steps. Find the address bar type restore:colors,,,, might void warranty... 2 other things. Why CAN"T I JUST HIT I HAVE THIS PROBLEM AND MY COMPUTER DOES THE 4 STEPS ???????? I am usually lost after step 1. That just makes too much sense.
        • (SIDE NOTE 2) It is very hard to find where to write this problem to you. My issue doesn't fit any of the other categories, I think it doesn't, so getting this to you is not the easiest. Try to do it yourself.

There is a NASCAR fan reactions that NASCAR ask about every week. It is called the NASCAR Fan Council. I was asked to join this at the very very beginning when they didn't quite know how to do. I was asked to join because it was impossible to ask the upper most levels of authority a question that I thought NASCAR should look at. When I finally got to an executive I said the same thing. Try to find yourself. He couldn't and I was asked to join the NASCAR Fan Council.

I am also asking management at Firefox to send a question to themselves and see how easy it is not. ****

After pushing the Send button Firefox says that the e-mail was sent 100 %, as shown in the attached image. This "Your message is sent 100 %" screen stays for about 30 seconds. Until a month ago this screen used to disappear immediately after 100 % was reached. I checked al the e-mail server settings but that didn't solve the problem. What could be wrong that this screen stays there so long?

FF 66 running on Fedora 29 KDE spin.

See the attached sceen shot. When I first open FF in maximized mode, the screen tears in the middle. Also, it displays a part of the screen that completely does not belong to Firefox (in the attached example, it is from the Thunderbird screen which is now background). The minimize/maximize/close buttons shown belong to Firefox, not Thunderbird.

If I resize FF using the buttons, then maximize again, it displays correctly.

Weird, huh? JimR

have these bars appear during loading instead of while scrolling?

keep these bars from appearing while scrolling?

I have a high DPI monitor, and I've set the Windows UI scaling factor to 125%. However, at 125% the web pages appears a bit too zoomed in (images and fonts too large) for me, so I set the default zoom level to 80% in the settings page. But apparently add-on popups (e.g. uBlock origin) doesn't use the default zoom level so they are comically large compared to web pages. I tried setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx to 1, but then Firefox UI became too small. I wonder if I can set the zoom level for add-on popups to 80% without changing the size of the browser UI?

On any site where there was an editing screen, the sprites disappeared (see screenshot). I checked Safari, and the sprites were all in place. So I made sure my FF installation was backed up, and I reset. When FF finally rebooted, the problem was gone, but of course all my add-ons and customizations were gone.

I found the 'old Firefox data' folder on my desktop, quit Firefox and replaced the new profile with the old one. When I opened Firefox, all the customizations were in place, but the sprites had disappeared again.

The idea of turning all extensions off and on to check to see which one is interfering is daunting. Is there a more direct way to pinpoint the source of the problem?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Evening everyone,

I have recently been tweaking my overall Windows 7 Desktop theme. I've found a theme I truly enjoy, however I seem to have a conflict with only Firefox. The theme is darker, with a light foreground to help to read words. However, the default theme of Firefox, being a sort of light background and foreground, make it nearly impossible to read tabs, as well as intrude upon the window function buttons in the upper right. I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to give my theme control over this application or if there's something I can to remove this confliction.

Example: http://i.imgur.com/QYMsj3J.png (Also attached)

Thanks!
