On my personal computer under language settings I have a checkbox with the following text: "Use your operating system settings for “English (Sweden)” to format dates, times, numbers, and measurements."

That checkbox is however missing on my work computer despite both having Firefox 89, Windows 10 and the same windows-settings for dates, times etc.

This is creating problems for me when I browse using Firefox and I would like to fix it.

Hello all,

How do I increase the font size of my bookmarks library? I'm not talking about when I click on the Bookmarks manu and get the drop down menu listing them, but rather when I click on the Bookmarks menu and then choose: 'Show all Bookmarks" and the Library opens with all my Bookmarks in a table--how do I increase the font size here? It's too small and difficult to read currently.

Thank you.

Hi,

When printing from a webpage we use to generate receipts for payment the pages are coming out with the edges cut off. I am not having this issue in EDGE.

My current workaround is to PRINT to PDF and print from ADOBE PDF which works. However, we are hoping we can get Firefox to print the page without cutting off the right and left edges. I tinkered in some of the about:config printer settings and everything anyone has suggested that I have gotten from a quick google search seems to be configured correctly.

Any suggestions? I cannot provide an example due to it being a payment receipt for healthcare services.

Thank you!

I updated to ver 89.0. After update the tabs all changed to non-descipt grey with no outlining and the menu bar lost its blue colour which allows me to see the active window for any processes running on my setup. I often have multiple Firefox windows open at once. All other windows behave as before i.e. the active window shows a blue menu bar while all others are off-white. It is just Firefox that has changed.

I don't use Windows Themes but use WinAero to tweak the defaults.

How can I get Firefox to show the active window with a blue menu bar, as before, and the non-active Firefox windows can be any other colour but preferably the same as other inactive windows? This is a typical time waster update that I had thought Firefox was free from unlike Windows. If this can't be fixed I will need to consider whether I use an other browser that doesn't foul up a useful feature that saves me time - I have been with Firefox for more years than I can remember. Another annoyance is having to make yet another registration just to ask a question!

When I start Firefox, my saved tabs all load up reasonably quickly. However, the saved yahoo mail tab does nothing. If I close the tab and open a new tab, then enter www.yahoo.com as URL, nothing happens. Enter any other URL and it loads immediately. (I have a 1G internet). If I bring up Chrome and enter yahoo.com, it loads immediately. Whether I enter www.yahoo.com or select the yahoo mail icon from the toolbar or the yahoo icon on the Firefox new tab page, nothing happens. In the case of selecting the yahoo icon on the Firefox new tab page, the URL does not even show up in the URL space. After a few minutes it may fix itself, more quickly for yahoo.com vs the mail URL.

What is happening?

I’ve seen other posts on this problem and seen different solutions, some of which I’m not understanding, and some of which seem relevant to a particular problem not similar to mine.

I am using FF 89.0 64 bit on Win10 machine. Many times, when I restart Windows, especially if there has been a FF update, several things happen. One, which always happens, is that FF “forgets” that it is already the default browser. Two, which happens often, is my setting for “Ask to save logins and passwords for websites” gets changed to “no.” But occasionally, and this is the reason I’m writing, is clicks on external links open a new window, rather than a new tab (and this time, it’s always a small window which won’t respond to alt spacebar X to maximize it). I’ve checked about:config (don’t remember what page) per another web search, and confirmed that FF is set to open a new tab for internal links and to do the same for external links as is done for internal links. I’ve gone to about profiles and it shows three profiles, two of which say they are in use, so apparently the click on the internal link is opening a new profile. (I don’t care about profiles; I tried them once for some reason I no longer remember and it didn’t work so I don’t care about profiles). So can anyone guide me on what I need to do? The default profile has “beta” in it, but this was a long time ago. The “easiest” thing might be getting rid of all my profiles but I don’t know how to do that, and I certainly don’t want to have FF forget all my passwords, etc. I greatly appreciate any help I can get.

Hi there,

I have tried to change the firefox default colours. I have tried color.firefox.com and userChrome.css, but I cant get to --in-content-primary-button-background:

host, :root {

--in-content-primary-button-background: rgb(119, 0, 255) !important; }

neither rgb(119, 0, 255) nor #7700ff seem to work.

How can I change this value?

Kind regards, Ben

Got an update to89.0 four days ago, that totally screwed up my userChrome.css file -- which I now fixed (Again, thank you to all that help with posting this updated file to get tabs on the bottom for us non-techies) but I am now getting notices to update to 90.0 Beta 5. This is new, as far as I know, and I certainly don't want to try Beta versions, if anything I'd like less updates to avoid the userChrome incidents ... Is there a way to get out of this Beta update cycle, and back to whatever "normal" update requests are? Thanks!
