Hi, my desktop are mostly the same Firefox images and it's hard to find the one i want. I right click the icon and in properties i found a few images i could use. Is there a simple way to change some of them. I looked online and you have to down loads something, it didn't look easy. I hope I don't have to leave Firefox just to change my icons. Steve

Recently after the last update I lost all the tabs and also the possibility to recover them through "restore recently closed windows", as it wasn't clickable anymore all of a sudden. Moving files in the firefox profile folder isn't making any difference, perhaps I'm not doing it correctly. Anyway I only have files from the day in which I lost everything, so nothing from days earlier as it seems. Please help, the tabs vanished all by themselves, I didn't have a role in it, though I absolutely need to get them back

Hi,

I have scoured the web and can't seem to find a solution to this. Either firefox doesn't support this feature or I haven't looked enough.

How can you identify the pid of a tab in firefox? There isn't a tab in the task manager that shows this, like with chrome, opera, and edge.

I'd appreciate any help.

Thanks

I used to run Firefox 88.0.1 (64 bit) on a Windows 7 PC. With lots of help from this forum I wrote a userchrome.css file to make several changes to the appearance.

On a new Windows 10 machine I installed the same version of Firefox (since I don't care for the latest one). I added my old profle to the new installation and selected it as the default.

Unfortunately, when I opened the program I was prompted to create a new profile; there didn't seem to be any way around this. So I let it happen and tried simply copying my old chrome folder into it - I thought at least I could make the visual changes even if I couldn't import my bookmarks and so on.

But this didn't work either: when I run the program, none of the expected changes are there.

Presumably I've done something wrong, but what, exactly? I'd be grateful for any thoughts. Ideally, I'd like to use the whole of the old Win7 profile but if that's not possible at least changing the appearance would be pleasant.

Many thanks.

Bing Shopping links do not work with Firefox - but they do work in other browsers...

I do the search for [any given item]. It renders a mostly complete results page. Clicking on any of the product link[s] to the sellers' website renders a ~javascript void~ sort of error message in an otherwise blank new tab. Replicated this with several different items over the last week. Google searches and Bing searches result in non-responsive, irrelevant, and chronologically obsolete hits.

Bear in mind, the raw page, Bing Shopping <https://www.bing.com/shop> functions perfectly well in Opera... I have not tried it in either IE or Edge and I avoid Chrome like a recent worldwide pandemic.

I have not tampered with any of Firefox's settings.

Thanks in advance.

Hello. My Firefox (PC) has just updated to version 93.0. The problem now is that whenever I open a new tab, it is in dark mode, and the entire page is black. Only the address bar is white and visible. I have New Tab Overide, and each new tab should open the Google home page. So something is going on... I have never set dark mode as a preference for Firefox or Windows. Thanks to whoever can help me. Florio

Hi, HTML import function is not working. Trying to copy bookmarks to a new computer. Briefly get the activity indicator, when I click on "Import Bookmarks from HTML" and then nothing happens. Would be ok with using the Sync function, as I do with others here, but afraid it will overwrite my current bookmarks.

Please help. Thanks. [email]@wi.rr.com

Firefox taskbar preview on Dual Montior when 2 Firefox windows are open on each monitor

I have a dual monitor (extended display) setup and 2 Firefox windows open (one for each monitor). When Firefox crashes or is closed unexpectedly, opening it restores the previous session but the order in which the windows are restored is incorrect.

In other words, hovering over the Firefox icon in the taskbar shows 2 window previews open but in the incorrect order; the first window (left window preview) actually points to the right monitor's window and vice versa. As you can imagine this is superbly annoying because when I hover over the left window preview I expect to access the left monitor's window not the other way around!

This is on Windows 10.

When streaming video or sound from any website i.e. YouTube, Netflix etc. my audio changes level automatically. I will start a video, the audio level will be set and when I pause and resume playing, especially multiple times in a row, the audio level will increase by itself every time i resume playing however not by increasing either the YouTube/streaming site's volume setting nor my Windows volume slider. If an episode on Netflix finishes and the next episode starts automatically, the volume will be much lower once playback resumes but again, no volume settings/sliders have changed. If I pause and play again, the volume goes up and if i pause and play multiple times it will gradually go back to the original level. I have removed application control of volume in Windows from Firefox and have tried searching for this issue but have yet to find a solution. Chrome does not have this issues on my same device. On rare occasions, the audio will automatically boost all the way up to maximum level and become distorted regardless of which audio device I'm using i.e. wireless headphones, external sound card, any other audio device. I then need to pause and un-pause a few times before it goes back to normal Please help!

In the bookmarks sidebar (Win 10 PC), when using "search bookmarks" and after typing an entry to locate, I thought that there used to be a "button" (x) in the far right of the search field that would clear any entry and return the view of bookmarks in the sidebar to that which was displayed prior to the search.

Has something changed or was I just imagining this.

If my rampant imagination is at work, please consider this a feature request

Thanks
