With the latest update it appears that Firefox has disabled our ability to restore the old classic theme and UI in Firefox 89 and older using about:config, and the only alternative left is using alternative Firefox themes. Is there any theme out there that will allow me to have the white background for my bookmarks that was available in the past? I have tried TONS of themes and every single one of them has a dark bookmark background. And yes, I have also tried the ones that are supposedly able to give me the old classic look but they too have dark bookmark backgrounds. To make a long story short I can not find a single theme that has the light bookmark background and I do not know how to change the bookmark background or if the bookmark background can even be changed. All I know is the only theme with a white background is this sh***y looking theme that now comes with Firefox default settings. HELP!

Been trying to reslove a issue i've noticed since updating to the latest firefox version that was released this week. Never had a problem before. Chrome and Edge load and play stream normally. Updated all the normal things like drivers for audio and video card, reinstalled Firefox with a new profile, no add ons etc, turned hardware acceleration on and off, still get the same issue.

System is overpowered so its not down to it running slow or being old and also intenet connection is fine and I'm cabled in before anyone asks the "Have you turned it on and off questions :)"

Going to try and downgrade to the version before and see it fixes the issue and hope its resloved in the next hotfix.

It should be noted that this problem is related to streams and not normal videos, however someone on this forum posted problems with lagging videos, so maybe related.

Firefox home page is fine, however when a search topic is entered the resulting page results show the searched result is overlapped by the url for each result, A complete shutdown of Firefox will clear this overlapping but after a few hours of activity the overlapping reappears.

I've seen the answer to this on a couple of other Q&A posts, but just in case...

On the Edit Profile page, under Username, it lets you delete the existing name and type in your own. And a helpful instruction tells you permissible characters. But if you attempt save the change, you get an error message.

The other Q&A posts say that you can't, in fact, change your Username. If so, why doesn't the Edit Profile page say so? Why does it mislead you into attempting to change your Username?

Also, the note under the Username textbox says, "Keep in mind that your username is visible to the public." So, if your e-mail includes some form of your personal name, and that name becomes your username by default (which happened to me), and you never notice this, you get exposed (such as by posting a query here)? But in fact, the "Keep in mind..." instruction isn't fully true. As one of the other Q&A posts says, if you choose a display name (which is blank until you add one), your username is NOT exposed. But the Edit Profile page doesn't tell you this.

So, the whole Username portion of the Edit Profile page is very misleading. It needs to be clarified. And, when you sign up for Firefox, you should be given an opportunity to choose a unique username. Mine was forced on me in the background, apparently.

After installing a new firefox download, I cannot log in to investorvillage.com. The last time this happened, I somehow fixed it by clearing out everything I can find, but not this time. Either I have forgotten something, or something has changed. This does not happen with Chrome. Ideas?

Intermittent "no internet connection" from only Yahoo Mail. All others connect OK. Does not occur in MS Edge. Occurs randomly--two maybe three times a day sometimes more. Goes away randomly, but sometimes I must restart Firefox to make it go away. While it's happening with Firefox, I can access Yahoo Mail with MS Edge. I've tried to disable addons and plugins, but no improvement. It's been happening for about three months + or - a few months. (I've used Firefox since almost forever.) This problem is nasty!

This thread will probably be locked, but I'm going to post it anyway, so that it can be seen by other users who agree. To summarize:

1. @cor_el, you've been particularly helpful in the past, and I value your input whether or not I agree with your responses, and whether you post those responses as a user or in your official capacity as moderator. 2. Users still hate Proton--the lack of contrast and the inability to reposition pop-up windows in particular. 3. User feedback matters. 4. I will not register for a third-party app simply to give direct feedback to Mozilla. Companies need to increase their capacity to engage with customers directly. Without customers, a company spits into the wind. 5. While I am proficient at a number of technology skills, I do not have the capacity to master CSS.

For some reason I keep getting an error screen that says Firefox updated in the background and needs to be restarted, and each time it does that I get logged out and lose all my tabs and have to continuously sign in to my Firefox account and any other accounts I use on a regular.

This issue has been since late August and I've tried deleting and redownloading Firefox as well as switching to "check for updates but let you install them" in the settings.

Any additional help would be great since this issue is getting in the way of my work... When this first happened I didn't have a firefox account and lost all my bookmarks and had to sign into every single account.. I've learned from that initial moment.
