Hello,

I know this question is probably somewhere here but I can't find the answer (what I tried below).

So, I have a Debian 10 computer, with Firefox 78.15.0esr. I'm using the Adwaita (dark version) theme on my OS.

The problem is that Firefox uses the dark theme in Its menus (I don't mind) but It transmits to websites this setting and thus, websites supporting dark mode use it (Google, DuckDuckGo for example). I don't like that. I want them to use the light mode but keeping my theme on my OS.

So, I tried to change the value to 0, 1, 2, 3 (I tried each for them) for the setting layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override and put "Adwaita:light" in the widget.content.gtk-theme-override field in about:config. Each time I restarted Firefox. It never works, websites still continue to use the dark theme...

Thanks in advance

I try to register different account for specific site and when I ask firefox to generate a NEW password it suggest already existed for existed account. So, we have a security vulnerability - different accounts have the same password and owner of site can understand that these accounts belong to one person.

Hi, with firefox 106 (ubuntu snap) I have the "problem" that when I decide to save a page (Ctrl-s), the dialogue window that appears doesn't get focused automatically (before the filename was automatically focused). This way I cannot use the keyboard to talk with the window but I have to click on it first which is a little annoying. Is it a firefox problem or perhaps something related with my new Ubuntu 22.04? Thanks Very Much Francesco

Capturing Firefox with OBS - Tab freeze when on other virtual desk, a way to prevent this?

Hello,

For teaching purpose, I need to do interactive presentations with both a regular slide presentation (using pympress), interactive activities through either Miro or Mentimeter both being in Firefox and a few other things (depending on what I teach at the time).

In order to mix those windows on the screen (and also because sometimes those are streamed), I capture all of them in OBS and have a bunch of scenes which organize and size everything depending on what I currently focusing on.

Each of those windows are on a different virtual desk to make it manageable, and thus I am not always on the virtual desk where Firefox is, for example when I am explaining something with slides, I am on the virtual desk with the presenter console. However I often still need to have the content of Miro/Mentimeter on the screen so that I can link my explanation with what students do.

Now the problem I have is that it seems the rendering of the pages in Firefox freeze when I change of virtual desk, and thus students might add things on Miro/Mentimeter and I do not see it because the page is frozen. When I get back to the virtual desk, suddenly all the changes students made pop-up. It's extremely frustrating, both for me and students, as sometimes they asked questions related to what I was explaining before and then I have to go backwards.

Is there any way to make Firefox keep rendering pages when they are not on the screen? Any option? I have tried searching about:config with rendering / refresh, but came up with nothing. When looking that issue online, I found the "Always active Window (Always Visible)" extension which supposedly prevent the hidden property of pages to go to true, but that has not solved the problem.

Any help or tips on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely, Sleris

I have entered the same CSS rules for both my regular Firefox Browser and Firefox Developer. It's all been good until a recent update on Firefox Developer. (This happened within the last 3 weeks.)

My only objective here is to maximize the vertical dimension of my screen. (Note that the Container icons to the right are also "pushed up." The one that looks like a clock and the drop-down arrow beside it.)

I can't make the tabs vertically shorter.

(Please find first attachment below)

When I press "Alt", the tabs are vertically covering around 1/2 of the menu bar (menu bar is hidden).

(Please find second attachment below)

Below is how my Firefox Browser looks like and what I am aiming for.

(Please find third attachment below)

Note that the horizontal line above the tabs (container color indicators) are now gone on Firefox Developer (after trying to fix this issue since yesterday).

My CSS rules:

/* Below: For tabs */

  1. #tabbrowser-tabs .tab-text {
font-size:14pt !important;

}

  1. #TabsToolbar {

height: 34px!important; }

.titlebar-button{ padding-block: 0px !important; }

  1. #urlbar-container, #search-container { padding-block: 0px !important; }

/* Below: Removal of containers' icons */

  1. #userContext-indicator {

display:none !important; }

/* Below: Test for FF Developer only */

root{
 --tab-block-margin: 0 !important;

}

--

TIA!

Hey All,

I've seen a few instances of SSL_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED_HASH_ALGORITHM since the last update.

https://www.loot.co.za/ is one notable example. The same site opens fine on Chromium 87.

I've been looking around but have not been able to find what's causing it, it's not even mentioned in the documentation.

So far I've tried switching right down to TLS 1.1 via flags to no avail.

OS: Fedora 33 Workstation Firefox: 84.0.1 (64-bit)

Any ideas?

Hi,

searching for bookmarks (with sidebar) is no problem. There are several cases where I look, if something or similar had been bookmarked already. With this I want to avoid doubling/tripling/'moreling' bookmarks. But if I find something already bookmarked, I do not know in my about 1000 bookmarks where the bookmark is located. I tried to show properties of the found bookmark but it does not tell where it is placed. So I would have to look manually about 100 folders to find where the bookmark is located.

The most easy solution I think, would be indicating the place of the bookmark when showing settings of bookmark. On hovering over the found bookmark in a third line of popup could be told the location of this bookmark and would be visually more pleasant I think.

Else I have to put the bookmark doubled in a more visible location and delete the bookmark found by search. This workaround works but is not intuitive and bothersome (and costs much more time).

As this solution would be easy to implement, I hope, this can be implemented 'soon'. I think, this would help many others, too. (At least I heard from several others in my environment, that they miss such a thing.)

Not forgetting, thanks for the great browser, Niels

According to https://www.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/8k3sq4/firefox_updated_to_6001_and_the_search_box_is_no/ there's something wrong with userchrome.css in the profile but that file should be patched if that's the case.

Why this hasn't been patched since it's introduction in version 60 is beyond me.
