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.

Is there a way to use a list of sites you want to block with the manage exceptions option in settings. Several times now I have gone to the option and found it empty of entries, having to replace the sites I need to add one at a time blocking and reopening the option for each entry. Two things would be of great help: 1. find out how the manage exceptions option is being cleaned out and stop that action from happing 2. I have prepaired a text file listing the sites that I feel I don't want cookies from, a way to enter that list as a group (batch) into the manage exception blocking setting at least would make the work faster.

I enter the list to my host file also block them with my firewall witch dose some good on the house side of the blocking but little on the browser side.

anyhow any of this you can help with would be great. Don Smith smitm13@msn.com

Any chromium-based browser opens links from google search result in a new tab directly, but firefox (and Tor too) opens them with an address as "https://www.google.com/url?sa=..." and further redirects to actual link's address.

Sample: firefox: 1. Search in google: funny cats 2. Click cmd+mouse on result #3 with link "www.funnyawesomecats.com" 3. New tab opens with address like "https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&ved=..." 4. After some delay page redirects to actual link "www.funnyawesomecats.com"

In contrast, any Chromium browser opens links in a new tab directly without intermediate redirection. Also, Firefox open links from a google search directly (i.e. without any issue) only on the current search page, but not on a new tab.

Before FF starts it hangs and scans my font folder (all 600meg!) before it will do anything else, like connect to a website. This happens even if I simply restart the application after it's been running. And, its particularly worse after an update. Why can't it keep a list of available fonts that it can refer to rather than scan all over again? This can cause delays that run up to a minute and a half, as long as three and a little more.

I was going to rename the windows/Fonts folder to see what happens but being a system folder I can't.

I'm trying to customize colors of Firefox developer edition. I would like to have a dark toolbar bit i don't wont to enable dark mode for any website.

I have installed Firefox color and whenever i choose a darker color for the toolbar all websites are displaying their dark versions (it behaves like the dark mode is turned on).

I have tried to manual set browser.theme.content-theme and browser.theme.toolbar-theme but after every restart these get overridden.

Does anyone know how to make this happen?

The funny thing is that everything was fine before today's update...i tried reinstalling Firefox and also i tried disabling all extensions...

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 would like to do an update of Firefox Browser. I've been unable to log in to websites, such as my bank, for which I have been able to access. Strange but I could log in, then for about a week I couldn't log in to bank site via my Icon shortcut. Then it began working again under the original icon. I was forced to use google during this time, which has worked. I prefer Firefox, because of more privacy. Again today, I was unable to access aaa.com, I was able to sign on via my iphone 8. Then I tried Google sign on, again it worked. This problem is intermittent. I thought I'd make sure Firefox Browser was updated. I have windows 7 on this computer. The browser update seemed to start then just hang.

In Firefox, I click on settings/General settings and I see the Default Browser box. It is checked , HOWEVER the whole area is slightly blurred and I cannot uncheck the box. Not that I want to, but the system has taken over and will not allow me to uncheck it. At the same time this happened, Microsoft EDGE is starting to come up at various places when another app launches my web browser. Hewlett Packard is a good example. So, I tried to completely uninstall edge, with no luck. THAT uninstall box is also slightly blurred or faded, same as the Firefox default browser is. It is like Windows 10 is trying to take over my system completely. I hope you have had experience with this since they are now messing with your controls and your settings! Please help.

I have one pinned tab that I want to keep the sound muted on because it's a simple game that I play occasionally. The problem I'm having though is whenever I close the lid on my laptop for the night, then reopen it in the morning, the tab is no longer muted. Laptop is set to sleep when closing the lid. I just want to set the tab to mute permanently. Is there a way to do that without adding yet another extension to my growing list of extensions? Or is this unmute behavior not supposed to happen and something is amiss? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you! Windows 10 Asus VivoBook 1T C drive 1T D drive 16G ram

I just bought a new Mac, and I am learning to use voice control, and voice control does not work to dictate into appropriate text boxes with FireFox. I have verified with Apple support but this is not 100% a FireFox problem, because it turns out the voice control is very iffy in multiple non-Apple programs (Photoshop, BBEdit), and it is iffy in multiple Apple programs as well--sometimes it works with Mail and sometimes it does not. While I do hope that my advisor will be able to get back to me eventually with a solution, I am searching for other ways to address the issue.

The biggest problem for my uses is lack of function with with Firefox. Sometimes it works if I start some dictation in an open textedit file, and then switch to an already open browser window and text box in Firefox. Sometimes this does not work.

I did find another conversation in the Apple forums where someone was using chrome and they were able to adjust a chrome setting for "native accessibility API support" but even though I found this setting in Firefox about:config and set it to true, I'm still having the problem.

Any tips on settings that can be adjusted to increase the chances of success with voice control?

Now on macOS Monterey 12.0.1 and FireFox beta channel 94.0. Problem first noticed before update from Big Sur to Monterey; have not attempted to enable Voice Control on prior versions of MacOS or prior computers.

I have set media seamless looping to off in about:config, but I can't see what other preferences would relate to this.

Somewhere between firefox developer edition 80 and firefox developer edition 94 a bug was introduced that results in firefox showing a huge list of possible public domains for an email address that i'm trying to enter.

Firefox should only show values I've entered previously. Instead it shows garbage such as gmail and yahoo as shown in the picture.

How do I wipe the list that it's using so that it never happens again?

Until recently, when I started typing in the address bar, FF was offering suggestions that were clearly based on addresses I had gone to in the past and seemed remarkably prescient about where I wanted to go. For example, if I typed the name of my hosting service, Seanet, one of the top 2 or 3 choices would be Seanet's login page.

Now, if I type "sean" for example, I get a bunch of irrelevant stuff ("sean connery") and about 10 lines down, it says "firefox suggests" and one of those is the login page. I ran into an article talking about how to change settings under privacy/address bar, but those don't affect this behavior. They change what might be the source of suggestions, and I limited it to browsing history, and that didn't help at all.

Maybe this is something that can't be fixed, but things were easier when FF listed very near the top the actual addresses I went to. Not all have deteriorated, e.g. (to reveal stuff about me) typing "x" gets xkcd.com as the first suggestion, and typing "e" gets explainxkcd.com as the first (sorry, sometimes I don't get the computer references and need an explanation).

Any help would be appreciated.
