Need to change background color of about:blank page

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

Hi, Since the latest update of my Firefox browser to 105.0.1 (64 bit) on my Mac with operating system 10.13.6 I'm getting messages as the enclosed picture. It appears on upper right corner when I open Firefox. It comes with a sound signal. It appears many times in one hour. How to get rid of that problem? I have another application, from Sophos, to protect from viruses and other attacs. Sophos say that there are no problems. My Mac is clean. Possible to sort out the problem, please?

The message in Swedish translated to English: "McAfee: Firewall crashes via musicinmysoul.biz TROJAN-virus detected. Click here..." McAfee is not installed in my Mac...

I have used Firefox for years as my main browser and have my gmail on both iPad and iPhone come up without having to sign in each time. Now on my iPad, Google gives me a message that my browser may be insecure and I have to sign in each time which is highly inconvenient and irritating. Each time, Google asks to switch my browser to Chrome. Can you tell me what is going on? Thanks -

I'm a web developer and I've been using the web developer Responsive Design Mode for some testing.

Unfortunately the default resolution is 320x480 and while I do occasionally test this resolution (it's our bare minimal mobile resolution) it's obnoxious to have to always choose the drop down menu to change the resolution every-single-time!

I've already searched through about:config settings for queries such as 320 and 480 separately.

So: how do I change the Responsive Design Mode default resolution?

Hello, Firefox was working normally and then suddenly this start's to occurred, two days ago. If i am seeing a YouTube video inside another site no problem, but if I try to see the same video on YouTube site it won't play. If I maintain de play button the video play for 1 second and stops, then play for a second and stops again and so on. But in the YouTube mini-player plays normally The problem must be on the profile because the only way to resolve the problem is with a new profile. I have tried with disable extensions and troubleshooting mode and that don't solved the problem. what could be wrong with my profile? because I need this profile!

This has been a problem for months and its very annoying. I have my firefox shortcut pinned to my taskbar. It's a shortcut directly created from the firefox.exe file in my programs folder. EVery so often after I'll restart my computer my firefox icon will go blank and it you click on it it says "Can't open this item. It might have been moved, renamed, or deleted". The thing is I also have a firefox shortcut on my desktop. I use that shortcut to pin firefox to my desktop. That shortcut is always fine and this problem doesn't happen to it. Does anyone know what's going on?

I'm on Windows 10 64 bit.

Hi there!

I'm curious about what happened to the 120Hz (and above) support? Disabling addons don't seem to change anything, Edge works without a problem on the UFO test etc. but firefox seems completely broken on 105.0.1 (64-bit) for now.

Anybody else with the same experience?
