I didn't ask for this change, and I don't want it. Black on white is hard on my eyes to read.

I've already checked around the forums and nothing that other posters have suggested works to change it back. Yes, I use a custom theme and I'm not going to change it to "white". I didn't make any changes , firefox did.

Hello, Mozilla has been getting very slow, am using regularly Brave browser now, as from click is 4 seconds to use, yet now Mozilla 96.0 is 25 seconds to start. Both have Ghostery installed & Adblock Plus so don't use that crap predictable excuse, I will not disable these. Both have full clean out of temp files & cache whenever closed down. I will never sign in as big momma tracks all searches. Always use anonymous as never eve sign in except for sites required. Never ever sign in using any browser unless checking email, then flush out after. Also Themes now is dark, though dark google them show dark / light as default. Getting used to Brave as chromium based without holes, some things I still use Mozilla but slowness is real issue

Before I reached out to you I contacted https://MyCobra.tpa.com administrators and tech support, to describe the problem. My login credential, my account, etc. are all in order. When attempting to submit the login credential to access my account I get over the submit button a red circle with a red diagonal line across the circle that inhibits pressing the submit button. The first time I attempted this on a different laptop I was asked by their tech support to not attempt to press the button but instead to hit the enter key on my keyboard. It worked! I got in! However, when I tried it again at a later time I could not get in. So, I decided to try a different browser; Edge repeatedly worked by hitting the enter keyboard key. This clearly suggests an issue with Firefox an this web portal.

I am running security add on features on Firefox. I turned them all off and run the browser in troubleshooting mode. No Joy! The problem persists. That's where you come in. I would rather not migrate to Edge, I do not like living on the edge so to speak. I am attaching a screenshot of the problem. I hope that you can help me find a solution. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

PLEASE think of the end-user for ONCE in your developer's life and STOP moving around the option to take screenshots please!!! First it was in the right-click menu (best option, I still try to find it there every single time just like the Copy and Paste options) then you moved it to the "..." address bar menu, and now it was removed once again and the user must customize the toolbar to add the button?? Seriously? Who thought this would be more user friendly? Please provide a single reason to justify this Microsoft-ish behaviour.

Surely the option will be completely removed in next version, to force users to return to a previous version.

PS. did Yahoo already acquire Mozilla? That would explain a lot.

according to the add-on page in Settings, the AdBlock Plus add-on is enabled in my browser, but it doesn't appear to be working. so I am trying to access the menu options to control it. to do that, I need to add the icon to my toolbar.

this article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/955157

explains two methods:

1. go to Settings --> Customize Toolbars, and drag the icon to the toolbar. this doesn't work, because the icon is not there to be dragged (even after I restore defaults).

2. go to the View Menu --> Toolbars --> Add-on Bar and move the icon from one toolbar to another.

quite apart from the fact that it took me two days to figure out how to get the View Menu to appear, that procedure doesn't work either because after View Menu --> Toolbars --> the Add-on Bar is not listed.

can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.


thank you,

in the instructions to make Firefox my default browser it says that when you click on the Make Default button "The Set Default Programs window will open."

that isn't what happens.

instead I get a window headed: "Set Associations for a Program". this asks me to make choices about filetypes I know nothing about. four of them are pre-selected, so I click Save at the bottom right but this does not make Firefox my default browser.

what am I doing wrong?

thank you

Periodically, randomly is all I can say, a message window opens when I power on with a statement about "UpdateBrowserForApp" having stopped working; and then I'm given options to close the program, etc. See attached screenshot.

Firefox is the only browser I use. Is this message from Firefox or does it mean I should do something related to Firefox?

Thanks for whatever info or help you can give. Lee

file:/Desktop/Removed%20Apps.html On Thursday, November 25, 2021 9:02 AM my PC was refreshed, so says the Firefox icon that popped up on my screen, and I presume by FireFox because they removed about 25 Apps that I typically use.

1-How do I re-install them? 2- and why would they be removed?

thanks for assistance and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Imported bookmarks beign overwritten by old bookmarks

[This happens on both PC (Win 8.1) and Mac (Mojave 10.14.6) with the current version of Firefox (95.0.2).]

I backed up my bokmarks on both PC and Mac as .json files due to switching laptops for my holiday (PC is personal, Mac is work). When I imported the personal .json file on the Mac, the bookmarks did get imported but all jumbled up - the folders were still there but empty and all the bookmarks were just dumped in random order in the Bookmarks Menu root folder. So I tried synchronising profiles instead which didn't work either.

Now I'm back home and of course the synch has messed up the bookmarks on my PC as well. I deleted everything, restored the bookmarks from the personal .json again, and it does restore them properly for about 2 seconds and then all of the neatly sorted bookmarks in their folders get overwritten again by the jumbled mess. The same thing happens when I restore from the automatic restore point instead (from a day before my holiday).

I have disconnected the snych, restarted and updated several times, and tried this on both PC and Mac with both the personal and work .json files, with the same result every time. I have about 1200 bookmarks in total so I would love to be able to fix this without going through all of them to put them back into their respective folders manually. Any idea how I can fix this?

Firefox have closed to all Feeback. I just wanted to tell them the reasons that after being loyal to Mozilla I think since 1995 I finally switched to Goggle Chrome next year. There newest version was just awful. Incredibly slow, glitchy one of the worst things and worst decisions was to get rid of Remind Fox and add on that I found unbelivably helpful and they just decided to discontinue it and there is nothing else like it other adds on just don't do the same stuff my son loved it too. And lastly there are addons to help hearing impaired users on Chrome and Firefox doesn't even have a single one. It is also just insanely slow to load now. The new version was a tremendous downgrade.

Thanks to Proton expanding my Bookmarks Menu off the bottom of the screen, I was re-arranging my bookmarks folders. While wondering which of my folders I had to prune, I noticed another in-built redundancy. The entry "Manage Bookmarks Ctrl+Shift+O" appears twice, at the top and the bottom of the menu. Incidentally the bottom entry is misaligned (Firefox v89 on Windows).

Is there a particular reasons for this duplication? Can I remove either of these entries?
