See the attached pics. They are both of the same Mozilla support webpage - one on Firefox and one on Safari. The one on Safari looks the way that I would expect it to but Firefox shows it without background colours. On other websites I have noticed that where there are grey fonts on Safari, Firefox shows those fonts all black.

I first noticed this starting about one week ago but I can't remember anything specific changing around that time but I may have forgotten (age!). I have tried troubleshooting mode and refreshing the browser and I have even created a new profile but the problem persists. It is like this on all websites that I have accessed.

greetings. i have used firefox for years but one thing has just stumped me. since yesterday all the headings and banners on all websites i view have lost their normal colour and font etc, and appear as light blue text in outlined white boxes. the various components of each website appear to load ok otherwise. see the bbc website pictures attached that were taken at the same time. this is nothing to do with the firefox themes as the browser itself is all good; and if i load the same web pages on safari then they appear as they should. the mac seized up after some error yesterday and restarted itself; i think this problem started after that episode. i downloaded firefox again and that didn't clear the problem, so i'm guessing there's something in settings that i can't find. any suggestions?

On some sites (e.g. Nottinghampost.com) left click does not open links/ pages. It shows that ti is a link (hand mouse pointer) but will only open with centre click in a new tab. I see that this is a problem that others have had in the past.

I have run Firefox in troubleshooting/ safe mode and problem still happens, so not an extension/ theme issue. I have rebooted the computer and I also always clear cookies/browsing history etc when I exit Firefox, that has not helped. The page links work properly in Chrome. I have also done a virus scan (Panda AV)

I am using current Firefox 91 on Win 10 Pro 64, recently updated but I believe the Firefox issue existed before update.

The issue has existed all this week and possibly longer.

I'm an avid keyboard user, and I'm trying to use the alt + n shortcuts for switching tabs, while watching in a video on a website (more specifically unity). But every time I press alt + n udemy interprets it as skipping around in the video. And firefox aborts the switching of the tab. This is literally driving me crazy.

Hi,

I got an issue that bookmarks are saved in the library, but this doesn't reflect on the Bookmark toolbar.

I have already removed the entire profile, did a reinstall .. nothing seems to reset it. When I perform a backup, the entries are also in the backup json.

I hope somebody can help, this started happening recently it seems.

Thanks in advance!

Until yesterday, my att.net email allowed me to click on an icon and get a list of my contacts as well as a list of lists of contacts.

Starting yesterday, nothing happens when I click on the icon.

The icon works if I use Safari and I can get a list of the contacts on my iPhone.

I just updated Firefox to version 91.0.1 but I still have the problem. I have turned off enhanced tracking and AdBlockPlus (ABP). I am running Big Sur version 11.5.2.

I have most recent release of Firefox and also just updated MacOS to 11.5.2. After updates the histograms on the Wordpress blog stats page do not display. They display fine on Opera. I did clear cache — that didn't help. I quit Firefox and restarted — that didn't help. Firefox version for Mac version 91.0.1 (64-bit).

I assume this must be a Firefox bug, but am open to suggestions on how to fix the problem.

Also, when I click the checkbox for "Email me when someone answers the thread" it will not accept the check. Irritating.

Recently (possibly because it's Firefox 91) three questions have failed to load. Ironically, this is the latest: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1349148 (asking why hyperlinks fail to load). Is it the browser or has something been done to the questions?

Websites on my Firefox are not appearing correctly. I think this started when I was playing around with the Privacy and Security settings. I changed the settings back, but the issue persists. Sorry I cannot explain this issue more clearly... Please see images. The first shows an example of how websites are appearing with my Firefox now. The second, using Safari, is an example of how websites used to look - and how I want them to look again. Thank you! I miss my old Firefox.

I did the test at https://test.amiunique.org/?consent=1 and as a result got this: 16 potentially detected lists (over 292) - These filter lists will be used to generate an unique identifier. -see attached screenshot

Also, if any website of your choice creates a unique identifer on me by using the filter list, as long as i use the exact same filters as another person, could it be that the uniqure identififer is the same for me and the other person or a group of many persons/devices using this exact filter list? I mean.. if my list is the same as someone else they will be identically which means it doesn't matter i am unique identifyed because after all im not unique but only in a list of devices using a specific filter?

And i must say that now, if you go to https://test.amiunique.org and do the test, then klick the shield icon, how pathethic is that amount of trackers, social media trackers, and even cryptominers!?!?

Hello,

I have 3 different profiles and I'd like to have a visual indication of the currently active profile. I've found that using themes is the best option (a red theme for production, green for test, grey for default) but I can't prevent Firefox Sync to sync the active theme between my profiles.

I have set both services.sync.prefs.sync.extensions.activeThemeID and services.sync.prefs.sync.lightweightThemes to false and restarted all my Firefox profiles.

After a while, all windows/profiles are synced to the same theme.

Are those settings really read by Firefox Sync ? I'm on Windows 10, Firefox 91.10.0esr (32-bit)

Thanks in advance for your help !
