I tried to hit the Feedback under Firefox Help because this latest update has completely broken the ability to report comments or inappropriate posts on Facebook, to the group admins, but all I keep seeing is something called Mozila.Crowdcity.com! If you're taking our ability to submit simple feedback away, I won't be using Firefox anymore. This has just happened as well since this latest update. I didn't have any trouble submitting feedback prior to this.

I have been using the FF dark theme for a while now and am used to it, but I do not like other websites dark (for example youtube, ietf documents, etc.) and suddenly firefox has started showing them in dark mode as well. I have tried to search for a fix for this with no success so far. What I have tried so far: set ui.systemUsesDarkTheme to 0 set browser.in-content.dark-mode to false

Please help me disable Firefox requesting dark websites while I still use the dark theme itself. Regards.

with multiple monitors come multiple windows. and sometimes you need to close FF entirely. by habit and by design, every other application has the 'X' button in the top right close the APPLICATION. in FF, this only closes the current WINDOW (NOT TAB!!), which, if you have 2 or 3 (one for each monitor), leads to a lot of cursing as your multi-tab, multi-window layout is now borked. for single window users, this is not something that would ever concern them, but us multi-monitor, multi-window users, it would be nice to be able to have that big 'X' kill the application entirely instead of killing just the window. so is there a way to remap this?

TL;DR: Can the top right 'X' button be remapped to Exit instead of Close Window?

Migration to Wife's new Apple iMac, her bookmarks have been replaced by mine

I used Apple Migration Assistant to move the entirety of my wife's old iMac (the old computer won't accept updates, so her machine was not secure) to a new one. The migration operation appeared smooth and essentially perfect.

Somehow my Bookmarks have overwritten my wife's (years ago, I turned Synch = ON, was that it? Synch is OFF now). The bookmarks are still OK on the old computer, so how do I locate and move that info to the new machine "AND BE SURE TO GET IT RIGHT"? My wife is the family business manager, so her bookmarks are Insurance, Banking, Healthcare, etc.

I've done some searching, but there are thousands of posts, I can't wade through all of that.

So there's a feature that Chrome has in that it can smartly detect which fields are search fields without having you to use bookmarks at all.

Wow. Tab to search websites. Works instantly out of the box.

Meanwhile, I can't even get any way to get Fandom wikis to be able to be searchable. No rightclick keyword on any page there works at all.

I've been running a series of searches weekly, for Bayko, on eBay.co.uk, for years, using a saved search. It now [actually for a few months] makes errors, and I've had to switch to using Chrome.

The errors : - 1 The number of found items is exaggerated by about 25%. 2 Page 7 - of 8 usually - states that no items have been found - try again - after displaying 6 full pages of 50.

For the record p8 displays fine.

Any thoughts, or, better still, solutions.

I'm running a late 2017 MacBook Air with memory of 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3, Monterey 12.0.1 and using Firefox 95.0. I am having a continuing issue with a web site (E edition of The Fort Worth Star Telegram) that after opening a second page/window of a news article, that 2nd open page causes Firefox to stop responding. Clearing caches and or restarting computer does not help. Feedback to Star Telegram has yielded no solution.

HOW do I get these back?
