Is it possible for a big tech company like Apple to release a web platform that is not compatible with Firefox? Firefox is not supported by Apple School Manager (https://school.apple.com) i.e. a web platform designed for educational institutions (PA). Is it legal? Is it possible to make a claim to EU institutions? Thank you

I view a lot of pdf documents via firefox, the light gray background makes my eyes and head hurt after prolonged usage. In the past I found a solution on this forum that advised to set pdfjs.viewerCssTheme to "2" in about:config. This set the background of pdf viewer to black/dark gray. This has worked for years until recently when the pdf viewer switched to light mode again (pic 1). I checked the about:config settings for pdfjs.viewerCssTheme but there appears to be no change. I tried restarting the browser, setting the theme to 0 and to 2 again, updating browser. Sadly the theme is still light gray. Is there a way to change it again? The desired outcome is in pic 2. I do NOT want to change the color of the pdf pages themselves.

Hello, I want your help! Because I want to change the appearance of checkboxes to toggles without affecting the other checkboxes (like rounded checkboxes) using userChrome.css in Firefox.

I'm not friend with CSS, because I don't know much about programming. So, please write me a correct CSS code in a comment.

The attached screenshot will explain my demands:

I recently downloaded Tree Style Tab. I still see the horizontal tab bar. I would like to hide it. However, I have tried just about every answer I could find on Mozilla, Google, Reddit, and any other websites that offered solutions. Nothing has worked since the last update. This includes the "type in about:config, toggle to true, open profile folder, create userChrome.css file, copy and paste xyz code, save, and restart Firefox" route.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

After upgrade, logins not populating "Saved logins..." in settings, and generally inaccessible

Hi! After recently following the upgrade path from FF v52 to the most recent FF version, I find that logins in logins.json did not carry over with the upgrade. Out of 555 logins, only 44 appear. (I suspect these may have been imported from Chrome, since FF also imported my Chrome bookmarks without acknowledgment.) I see that the old logins are still in logins.json, and logins.json appears to be valid JSON when opening with FF.

I tried ensuring that logins.json, key3.db, and key4.db had matching timestamps, but that didn't correct the problem. I tried replacing key3.db and logins.json with copies from a backup of the v52 profile (it has no key4.db--is key3.db no longer used?), but then zero logins appeared (why I think the ones that do appear may originate with Chrome). I tried exporting logins to CSV, but it only captured those 44. I can see the logins are in logins.json, but the passwords are hashed/obscured.

I have profile backups, but I don't find a way to import the logins. (If I had to make a wild guess, I'd say the upgrade might have ignored my key3.db that paired with my logins.json, and created a new key4.db full of Chrome logins instead.)

How might I recover my logins from either the in-use logins.json or from my profile backup?

Thank you!

Fore some reason I am no longer able to open support.netapp.com in Firefox Getting a time-out error >> The connection has timed out >> The server at support.netapp.com is taking too long to respond.

This seems to have started after a Firefox update earlier this year, but I don't remember with which version it started.

I have already tried to refresh Firefox, un- and install Firefox

  (including deleting various entries in "%Programdata% and %appdata%
  and registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER>>SOFTWARE. Delete the entry named "Mozilla".
                     HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>>SOFTWARE. Delete the entries "Mozilla" and "mozilla.org".
                      HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>>SOFTWARE>>WOW6432Node.
                              Delete the entries "Mozilla" and "MozillaPlugins".

With no luck

This issue does not happen on any other browser (Chrome, Edge, Vivaldi) I have tried. But what I noticed on these is that support.netapp.com is automatically being redirected to https://mysupport.netapp.com/site This redirect does not happen in FF

If I enter mysupport.netapp.com manually it opens perfectly


Cheers, Jurgen

So for folks who hand wrote thousands of lines of Actionscript code for Adobe Flash, it is incredibly upsetting and frustrating that a witch hunt went after Flash which we believe was part of a tactic by google to ensure its ads cannot as easily be blocked. Specifically google used all this "modern web" nonsense to become the monopolistic browser in place of internet explorer and to use that "power" explicitly to bend the future web to their will.

This is so upsetting, there are not words to describe it. And the fact that the "answer" is that folks who spent years and thousands of lines of code for Flash, now "simply need to completely re code everything from scratch in a new language" is offensive beyond recognition.

Please consider removing this "standard" response language or at least acknowledge the awful burden that was placed on folks by the decision to join the rest to remove the most popular web technology that helped build the internet, because google must serve everyone ads. It is just gross.

Honestly, we thought Firefox would defy the witch hunt and keep flash working to differentiate and look after the poor developers who suffered from this terrible, terrible action.

p.s. on the day Flash was officially killed off, chrome had more active "severe" security vulnerabilities than Flash. Thus, chrome is objectively less secure than Flash. I wonder how much google spent on paying news companies to post stuff about how "insecure" flash is and the stupid "modern web." I wonder if said "news" companies checked the claims, or just took the payment and posted their "sponsored content."

I am trying to sign into my bank accounts per usual this week and am encountering the above issue. I feel like I have tried everything. I can sign into the account on Safari, Microsoft Edge, or the on phone app just fine. I did not have this issue last week. To date I have tried: 1. Clearing cookies and cache 2. Forgetting the website 3. Turning off all addons/plugins 4. Changing theme 5. Uninstalling and reinstalling FireFox 6. Refreshing FireFox 7. Turning off fingerprinting 8. I do not use a VPN 9. Tried using incognito mode 10. Tried using safe mode

Please help. This is so frustrating. It is not on the bank's end as others can sign into their account just fine from Mozilla Firefox. It is not a computer issue, because I cannot sign in on either my laptop or my computer. I do have my browsers synced across machines, but I have tried logging out and signing in again to no avail.

Hello,

I recently purchased a VPN for my laptop. I bought a designated IP address set to Toronto, Canada. However, Firefox shows my location in Japan.

In my communications with VPN server they believe since whatsmyipaddress shows me where my VPN says it should, but FF shows me in Japan, the problem may be a leak at your end. When I created this account today and set my country to Canada (as suggested by PIA), closed everything and rebooted my computer I had hoped to see Canada (en) when I began a search. However, it still shows Japan.

I value my privacy on all devices and turning off location is the first thing I do. I'm now wondering if FF is getting this location from Windows.

Any assistance is most appreciated. Thank you,

I was trying to troubleshoot a black screen of death issue with Windows10 that first started appearing after Firefox adopted the new Private Browsing icon. In the process of doing so, I tried every combination of Firefox settings imaginable. Nothing worked as far as Asus, Windows, or Firefox settings, rolling back/ updating various drivers, etc. So, I decided to refresh Firefox and when that did not work, I decided to uninstall and reinstall Firefox. I'm not sure if that worked as far as the original black screen of death issue is concerned because now Firefox no longer remembers my cookies and site data allowed exceptions (my only exceptions were my bank websites, which worked as expected until the uninstall/reinstall). I've tried selecting always use private browsing and always delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed (my previous settings), but every time I close Firefox and return those three exceptions are missing. Any ideas would be most welcome. BTW, does anyone know how to use that folder Firefox puts on the home screen labeled "Old Firefox Data" because I was expecting there to be a .exe file to click on to reload all the previous settings in one fell swoop.
