Hi All my icons changed to a globe image yesterday. I don't know why. However, I discovered that if I opened a bookmark, the correct icon reappeared. With 30 bookmarks to work on, this seemed like a lot of time, BUT your can "Open All Bookmarks in Tabs" and if you wait long enough, all your icons will be restored to those which the websites supply.

Hi All. Love FF but there's one thing that's driving me crazy... the different color of the Library window (see screen grab). The main window is this nice dark "cool gray" color, but the library window is this greenish color.

Is there a way to change that? I've had the userChrome.css file installed and feel fairly comfortable making code edits.

Thanks in advance.

It is a struggle to log into gmail. Once I manage to get into gmail and start opening messages, it hangs on loading and eventually I receive an error message such as "Oops ... the system encountered a problem (#001) or another version is (#2003) and often end up with the message, "The conversation you requested could not be loaded. I have cleared cache and cookies, refreshed the firefox browser, and within my profile I have renamed cookies.sqlite. I don't have an extensions turned on. I also tried about.config to switch the value from true to false for security.tis.enable_0rtt-data. I am working on Windows 10 desk top and I am able to open gmail okay in chrome. I recently switched to Verizon Fios - I don't know if that is related or not. Also opening gmail in private viewing does not change anything and opening it in safe mode has not changed anything. Would anyone have any suggestions?

Firefox steals keyboard input when audio changes

I use firefox to play music, so I usually have a window in the background while I do other things. When playback starts after a pause, or between songs, the playback window often steals keyboard focus. So if I'm typing in another window, I'm interrupted. Very annoying. It happens on at least youtube, navidrome, and jellyfin.

I've found a few others reporting similar issues that suggest setting `mozilla.widget.raise-on-setfocus` to `false` - but this doesn't work for me. How can I figure out what's triggering this keyboard steal so I can fix it?

I'm using firefox esr 102.7.0esr, but it's been happening for a while. I've tried the debian builds and the official firefox.com builds, same behavior. Thanks for any suggestions.

Pretty much the title. On the first launch after update, the firefox logo on my taskbar turns into a blank page icon (with the top right corner folded down) and then after I close the program there is no icon for it on my taskbar.

It only takes a few seconds to add it back to the taskbar, but it's been happening for a few months now, and with these frequent updates it's gotten pretty frustrating.

Firefox won't stay my default browser. Every time I sign on after rebooting MS changes the default to I don't know what. It doesn't say what is the default. It wants edge I guess but I deleted the entire edge app and all its dlls. So how do I make the choice through the "set defaults" settings permanent?

Firefox Slow Loading - Disgraceful

I love Firefox but it has a market share of just around 7% and is even lower than Edge (which is terrible IMO). Chrome has the most users at around 65%.

Although Firefox is a much better browser, the perception for many is that Chrome is better due to much faster browser loading. I have Chrome and Firefox installed on Windows 11 with the same extensions and Chrome loads my home page in 2 sec whereas Firefox takes 7 sec to load. Even after deleting all cookies, cache and web history, Firefox still takes 7 sec to load my home page.

It's great to prioritize security, flexibility etc and I love these aspects of Firefox, but by not doing something to improve the awful loading times, you are leaving users with the impression that Firefox is inferior and LOSING the browser battle.
