Hello.

I just upgraded my OS. The upgrade included Firefox v60.0 which replaces the window manager, which I find unacceptable. Not only is this highly irritating because I use the 'Close' button on the left (and Firefox has it on the right) it also messes up the appearance (colours, transparency, icons, etc.) but also removes some of the window manager's functionality (shade, focus model, keyboard shortcuts, etc.).

How do I disable this "feature" so that I can use my system the way I want to instead of being dictated by Mozilla how I should use it?

Thank you kindly.

A Firefox Quantum theme I applied has become stuck as the default. I have removed all other installed themes (the broken theme wasn't listed to uninstall). Any window I open applies the theme again, as well as restarting the browser. It seems to have bugged my Firefox Sync as well, as it applies on all of my devices.

Here are some screenshots of the issue, because the forum image uploader didn't appear to work for me.

Hello, I want to prevent third parties accessibility services to enter my browser. But the way this checkboix is formulated confuses me. If I check the box 'prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser' is it then enabled or disabled? What are the accessibility services here? I read all the instructions but still find it a confusing sentence to check or uncheck?

Should I read the sentence as "prevent Firefox Accessibility Service from accessing your browser'? Or should I read it as "prevent any type of physical impairment assistive software from accessing your browser?

Hope you could help me with this. And if so it could be nice to make this sentence a bit clearer. Or maybe I'm just a bit confused and you should just leave it like this;)

Best,

Art

Sync replaces new bookmarks with old

I opened a laptop I haven't used in over a year. Firefox down-dated all my bookmarks to the year-old settings which means lost all my passwords, URLs and links that I had configured. Since the sync is universal, it removed them from ALL my computers. Now, the only way I have of getting the old links, is to restore my entire computer!


needless to say, I am pissed! This is a bug that existed over a year ago and was reported!

For the first time since Firefox was released, I am considering changing to a new browser!

is there any way to recover the new book marks that were deleted?


This is phenomenally stupid!

Hello Support Team,

For a couple of days I am unable to load a couple of site. (e.g. attachment: loginscreen from binanc) To me the screenshot and the behaviour of the other sites looks like javascript is not working properly. I can not login and nothing happens, when I click the "button". I only reach that screen, when I enter the login URL through history. When I open the main website binance.com, it links me binance.com/de and a blank white screen is shown....

As mentioned in another threat (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1221621) I already tried a bunch of troubleshooting, but nothing helps and brings the few websites back working. I can not imagine, why only a very few sites refuse to work, while 99% load and work normally. Is there any way or troubleshooting to reset javascript or something?! And here again: in private mode all site are working normal... Another thing is that, if I

Done so far:

  • Restart Firefox
  • Restart Firefox in Safe Mode
  • ctrl + R
  • strl + shift + R
  • Clear Data: Cookies + Site Data

  • Backed up Profile Folder + firefox -P - new profile - copying contents of backed up profile into new profile

I have: 1) bookmarks within FF desktop 2) FF within my VM running and 3) FF on Android 4) my Firefox-account open (on Desktop and VM)

and would like to have bookmarks synchronized.

This is supposed to be easy, but it seems not to be working. I blame myself, probably I am doing something wrong.

Desktop FF: I clear all bookmarks and import a set of bookmarks the way I want it. Okay, fine. Bookmarks on desktop is fine now.

Switch to VM a just installed Firefox... I check the bookmarks and see a whooole lot of links and stuff that probably is from ancient times. I clear those, as I want the bookmarks from desktop. So... the bookmarks from my desktop are gone.

If I start with a clean bookmark list on both FF desktop and VM and import the 'set of bookmarks' that I want into FF desktop, they might be cleared again due to FF in VM has no bookmarks...?

Reason for my question: what is synchronizing with what?

Thanks.

Certain Site Links only Work in Safe Mode - Can't Diagnose

I have run into certain sites where certain links will not work. Sears' Parts Lookup, for example - https://www.searspartsdirect.com/model-number/917276360/0247/1509200.html

When I click on one of the diagrams (for example "Electrical") it switches to that section, but it just spins and never pulls up the diagram. ANother site - Stens - for whom I have an account, When I click on the "Live Chat" link - https://www.stens.com/stens/my_account.ssp?fragment=transactionhistory# - it doesn't do anything.

If I restart Firefox in Safe Mode, however, both work fine. I have disabeld all of my addons and restarted; I have disabled "hardware acceleration" - which wasn't enabled to begin with - and restarted; I am already using the default theme... nothing I do short of Safe Mode works. What am I missing?

Hello,

There is a small margin between the close button and the upper right corner of the screen, that prevents me from clicking the close button when I put the mouse pointer at this corner (at the end of the screen).

Because of habit and also because all other windows let me click the close button like this, I would like to ask if there is an option or a particular about:config entry in order to eliminate this margin, so that the clickable area of the close button expands to the upper right corner (end border of the screen) and regain the functionality that I have with all other windows.

Hi. I am dealing with faded fonts on Dropbox and nothing I set seems to do any good.

I have dictated my own colors of Black on White colors or let the site style dictate colors. No difference. Great black on white when I use the View > No Style on the File Edit ... Tools Help menu bar. I use that menu because icon representations are confusing.

Linux Mint 17.3 (64-bit) MATE desktop, FF 60.0 (64-bit)

Here are some screen shots attached: 1. Dropbox Help styles enabled 2. Dropbox with No Styles 3. Set to allow wevsites to choose their own fonts 4. My color settings 5 My extensions and 6. My plugins

Getting late so I have a full day ahead, may get to turn off settings and shoot more shots later in the week.

Lately I often get message that I am unable to reach Mozilla's servers. I live in Russia and my IP is Russian too. I had to reinstall Firefox recently and my sync was incomplete (no logins, no history, no bookmarks) even though I had that checked in before. Could it be external problem because of recent Telegram blockings in Russia? Or is it only me?
