I begin to use firefox developer edition alongside firefox regular version. I've read some article that say if these 2 difference version using 2 seperate different profile, but it seems they're not. For example, when I change the theme to light for firefox and dark for firefox devedition, they always syncing each other so it use the theme the last set regardless where is set.

My question, is firefox and firefox devedition really using 2 seperate different profile? Can I use different setup like themes, addons for only one version? Where I can read the official documentation?

I have been a "light theme" user for 15+ years. Since updating to 96.0 today, a dark mode spreading across Firefox has been forced onto me, including:

  • New tab background
  • Background of any tab waiting to load a page
  • Google/Youtube background
  • Settings/add-ons/password menu backgrounds
  • Automatic username/password drop-down background
  • Background of the little box that appears on the bottom-left (the one which shows the URL when you mouse over a link)

I am unhappy with this and wish to have my usual theme back. Can anyone please assist?

(In addition, there is some sort of white border around the current tab, which I do not like)

After update firefox will not let me login to my online banking. This what it states "We can’t connect to the server at consumer.prosperity.bank." and that is all that it states, nothing more. if I "refresh" my firefox it will let me login one time and I can see the page certificates and such but after I log out it goes back to the same problem. I have used "EVERY" means possible to troubleshoot and fix this issue. I know it is a certificate issue related to firefox only. I can login without any issues on microsoft egde and other supported browsers. Since I can not get a "real" person to help resolve this issue I am reduced to leaving this post, hoping it will get resolved. thank you

all of a sudden the backround color for new tabs is black, I hate black. How do I make only the new tab backround white. It seems like every new version has different default values. Why is it not possible to allow users to try, then choose which new interface changes we want.

Firefox automatically running Dark mode after updating to 96.0 (64-bit)

My browser updated to 96.0 (64-bit) about an hour ago. I've been running the Cheshire cat Theme for a long time now without it making the entire browser turn Dark (I just like what it did to the Tab bar and the Menu Bar). It didn't effect anything else -- not the Menus themselves and certainly not any webpages. But since the update--the Menus, the Firefox Home page, the Settings page, and even the Google search results pages--all have been showing up in Dark Mode. I switched around other themes I have and noticed that only the themes that are light in color stop everything from going dark.

It's a minor thing but I would really like to keep my set up as it was. I would really appreciate some help.

Mozilla I am tired of these terrible UI changes you keep making and it needs to stop... please at least add some user config options so we can at least disable the ugly proton UI features..! as the about:config proton UI options don't work right... anymore..

Until yesterday everything I customized for Firefox 89 in June of 2021 and FF 91 in August of 2021 was working fine.

Today I updated to Firefox 96.0 and when I open my Firefox returned to that old visual that I hated

tabs with spaces , but that's not the worst. The worst is the newTab visual that came back to the small and ugly bookmarks of the page we usually navigate. That are set on userContent.css I remember.

I checked some vars at about:config and everything is as it was.

So do I need to set true or false any new var there? These .css files are like they was never read. It looks like to me there is a new var, we need to change it.

What did happen?

I am trying to increase the size of the font of our bookmarks on our MacBook Air laptop as they are hard to read on the smaller screen. I tried "zoom" and increasing font size in settings but that did not affect the bookmarks sidebar; only the primary web pages. I tried an add-on but could not get it to work. I did a few online searches and it appears to be a common issue but I could not find a solution so I thought I'd ask a question. Thanks for any advice that you can provide.
