For years when I wanted to bookmark a site I clicked "Bookmark this page" and it AUTOMATICALLY went to "Bookmarks Menu". This is logical. I save bookmarks to one place, the bookmarks menu. Now it tries to save them to "Other bookmarks" and I waste time undoing it. This is not a user-friendly addition and I know I'm not alone.

Besides the Google app button, the buttons next to it like the profiles picture and the notification button acts the same.

One day all those buttons just stopped working. I thought it was the version of Firefox but I updated it, downgraded it, tried several versions (pre and post quamtun), and all were complete clean setups, uninstalling and removing all the cache and profiles and whatnot. Nothing helped.

Google Keep and Gmail also acts strange. On top of the mentioned problem on the respective page, Keep is completely blank and many of the buttons on Gmail are missing. Despite them being invisible, some can still be clicked, others just don't respond at all.

It's fine on the same version of Firefox on another machine. It's fine on all other browsers on the same machine. So it's only the combination of this computer and Firefox.

I also tried changing proxy settings, safe mode, disabling hardware acceleration, disabling all the add-ons and plugins and extensions of Firefox and windows itself.

Appreciate if anyone have any idea.

Hello, I hatch that Firefox changes the colors of the web pages I create. For example, if I create the graphics with a blue color, it becomes either darker or lighter when I go to view the web page. The same happens with the red color that divernta stronger. It seems to me that there is a problem with saturation. This problem doesn't arise if I open the same web page on Safari, Chrome or Opera. Is there a way to solve the problem? I use OSX 10.13.4.

Thank you

Is it possible to extend the bookmark folder icon color change of the userChrome.css script below to the Library window All Bookmarks list?

https://www.userchrome.org/samples/userChrome-color_bookmark_folders.css

In the Library window, bookmark folder icons are still appearing gray with this script. It is also true for the folder icons in the new (FF 62) "New Bookmark" pop-up window.

I'm getting a blank (white) screen when my Win 7 pc boots up to the desktop (see attached screen shot). It has a small FireFox logo at the upper left corner. After about a minute this window will close revealing the desktop. If you try to close it, it says it isn't responding. As a test, I uninstalled FF and then rebooted. This window didn't open up. I can't tell if it is a FF issue or if some program is trying to use FF on startup but failing. Has anyone else had this issue?

Yesterday a Dell support tech wiped my browser history and all my visited page links reverted to default blue, so I went and clicked on all the links again so they turned purple (which as some users have remarked, is not that different from the blue and so it is hard to tell if the linked text is purple or blue on my monitor sometimes depending on the viewing angle).

Anyway, I went to my saved searches on Google and Craigslist and started clicking thru the new links of unvisited pages and I think I accidentally hit open link in private window or something when I right clicked (I am not sure) but now although my visited page links from yesterday in Google and Craigslist remain purple, the newly clicked page links are not turning color, and I am not sure if this is due to some setting in my browser that got changed or if it is a Firefox bug.

How do I go about troubleshooting and seeing if I can fix this, so I can determine if this is a bug I need to report or if I can get it to work again? And if I do get it to work again, can I change the text color of the visited page links? Thank you.

FYI I am running latest Firefox on Windows 10 64-bit, fully up to date with all apps as of this morning.

The Secure Connection Failed message (The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified) is now effectively blocking access to more sites than it allows access to. I understand the reasons for introducing this measure but since there's evidently such a vast number of sites that don't use the recommended tls protocols Firefox has now made itself unusable. I've spent the day switching over to Edge - not because I want to but because I find myself shut out of practically every other site I try to access with Firefox. It is not my responsibility to inform the owners of all the world's sites that they should update their security to fall into line with Mozilla's requirements. I do not have the power to do this. All I - and every other Firefox user - can do is change my browser. Please restore Firefox to a workable, usable state.

I use Charles Proxy during my development. I have it to proxy some of my connections. I have no issues working with Chrome, Safari or Edge but, I cannot get it to work with Firefox.

All I get is a:

The certificate is not trusted because the issuer certificate is unknown. The server might not be sending the appropriate intermediate certificates. An additional root certificate may need to be imported. Error code: SEC_ERROR_UNKNOWN_ISSUER

With no options to add as exception

Google.com is my homepage in Firefox 62.0.2 (64-bit) It takes forever to load. I can go load Chrome where Google is also my homepage, come back to Firefox and still be waiting for Google to load.

When I login to gmail, I type my password and wait and wait and wait and then I get sent back to the login page and have to type my password again.

I need to speed this up. I prefer Firefox over Chrome, but Chrome is faster to use.

I'm running Firefox 62.0 on Linux. I'm using the Light theme, but the menu bar and drop down menus have suddenly changed to dark. How do I get them back to a light background with black text? btw - when it changed, I couldn't read the menus because they were black text on black background. After trying a variety of themes, which didn't affect the menus, somehow they changed to black background with white text, so I can at least read them.
