The newest version of Firefox 89.0 (20210527174632) was installed the other day and now I have all background colors in light gray.Tried to change themes - I have default in light colors, but even the when picking the theme it is displayed with night blue background for tabs that are not open (what I used to have) - instead now I have all tabs and the menu bar in the same bland light gray color. Please help me establish my old color scheme before the upgrade. Thank you.

Everything was running JUST FINE before i turned on my laptop to find things had changed without my permission. Im just a basic man, not an I.T SPECIALIST. I just want to get on the net, thats it! Is that too much to ask seeing that with free will we chose Firefox, but its no better than any Microsoft crap. Takes hours to correct, if at all what these fools do to my routine online after their stupid updates. These fools must expect that everyone is a qualified proffessional who has plenty of time to fix this update mess. Its not the case FYI Firefox staff. And this stuff has been going on for years too and looks set to never end. Why cant my home page remain the same because guess what, it WAS working great until this so called update. What a mess.Firefox have caused me.

How the hell do i get my ORIGINAL, UNALTERED HOME PAGE BACK? Home tab disapeared as well which is common i see and has been going on for years now without an end in sight.. We seem to be the ones wiping Firefoxs arses, like little babies.

JUST SOME FRIENDLY INTELLIGENT ADVICE. HOW ABOUT DOING UPDATES WITHOUT TURNING EVERYTHING UPSIDE DOWN. Probably too much common sense for people today. Best thing is to just keep this internet to a minimum or you will be tearing youre out regularly.

Thanks Firefox for wasting my time on numerous occasions. Im very grateful for your expertise.

I suddenly cannot get Bing voice search to open and work/respond.. only images and regular search works!? Was fine until last week and even prior to an update from Firefox it stopped working on either pc's (one old windows 7 and new windows 10) It works on Edge browser and Fire Tablets, so I assume it is a Firefox issue ;( Has anyone else had this and how do I get it fixed?

How is this still a thing? Chrome can open any PDF file correctly. Any PDF file I open in Firefox shows the text as blank spaces, and I get the message "This pdf document might not be displayed correctly". Why? Why do I, with Firefox, need a 3rd party PDF reader? I shouldn't have to. Even Microsoft Edge gets this right.

Back to Chrome, I guess...

WidevineCdm plugin is crashing when I try to play videos on Netflix, Hulu, and Peacock. In the browser, Firefox 78.10.0esr on my Mac 10.9. A yellow strip at the top explains that the plugin crashed and asks me to send a report, which I do and asks me to restart the browser, which I do. Nothing works. I tried "safe mode." I tried clearing caches and what not. I think the browser was just updated today. I am totally unable to play videos on those web pages previous mentioned. I am able to watch youtube, however.

I just used pacman to update to the latest Firefox, but the tab crashed each time I open a new web page ( I can open settings, about:xxx and etc... ). I tried Troubleshoot Firefox crashes and it did not crash in troubleshoot mode. Then I tried extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-extensions-themes-to-fix-problems but non of these options solved the problem. I disabled all extensions, themes and hardware acceleration, and it reported the same error.

The problem is that after updating to 89.0 (64-bit) many websites stop rendering content properly. I have tried resetting Firefox and this did not help.

The issue is that random parts of the website fail to load or be displayed. I am attaching examples for two websites with an example from Firefox and Chrome so you can see how it is supposed to display and what is showing up. I know this issue only started after updating to 89.0 as I was on both of these sites earlier today with no problems, then Firefox randomly updated and the problem started.

Firefox is not entering text in text boxes when I type stuff in them. Also, text sometimes ends up in the address bar when it shouldn't.

I'm having a very strange problem that's only occurring with Firefox and not any other browser. Since this new update went through, whenever I go to Google's web page, I will type a search on the text box on Google's web page. The text doesn't appear in that text box. But instead, is somehow being captured by Firefox's address bar. Not only that, ever since the update, whenever I type a response in a text box on my Facebook page, Youtube, or anywhere with a text box to reply or make comments, whatever I typed doesn't even show up. I see it when I type it in the proper text box. But after I click "Submit" or "Enter" on the sites, no text is submitted and my comment disappears. This happens on all the sites with text boxes, and it ONLY happens with Firefox, and has only been happening since the update. It's getting frustrating typing long answers to questions that require long explanations of things, only to have them not get submitted to the site. It's like Firefox is blocking me from commenting or making comments. I'm not having the same problem with my phone browser. It's only a problem on my PC one.

Hallo, ich habe ein riesen Problem. Ich habe vor ca 3Monaten Firefox installiert. Zu Beginn lief alles normal, bis das Problem auftrat, das sämtliche erhaltenen Emails im Posteingang aufeinmal verschwunden waren. Beispiel: ich habe letztens, nach dem Wochenende, meinen Email-Account geöffnet und hatte 61 neue Nachrichten. Ich habe eine wichtige Nachricht geöffnet und sie direkt beantwortet. nachdem ich wieder zurück zum Posteingang bin waren alle anderen ungelesenen Nachrichten verschwunden...der Posteingang war auf 0. Dieses Problem tritt mittlerweile jedes Mal auf. Somit sind alle Nachrichten seit den letzten Wochen für mich nicht einsehbar. Bitte helfen sie mir diese Problem zu beheben. Ich habe natürlich zusätzlich das Problem das wenn ich nun eine Email vom Support erhalte diese ebenfalls wieder gelöscht werden könnte bevor ich sie öffnen kann. Mit freundlichen Grüßen Eine verzweifelte Firefox-Nutzerin

This is a thank you follow-up to my yesterdays' post starting with; "firefox version 89 is insanely slow with no explanation had to try reset...." I can't find my msg from yesterday started with this, but wanted to thank you all for fixing Everything - Overnight! I am So glad I waited to, "system restore," until today bec it(MSs' OS) gave warning it might not restore All of the elements correctly. Thank you for your hard work and just appreciating how essential the browsers' Working is to our lives. It is. Thank you, thank you, thank you!  :) (I'm now thinking I should maybe put my updates on "notify me first /let me download when ready"...but I'm not really sure if that would accomplish anything because I'd still have to download them to see if there were problem/s that effected My devise in particular. Community posts don't tell you that - or what to do. Pop-up status msgs would be appreciated.. if you'd have time...even if not all knowing...just to know some are aware of X issue...working on it...estimated back up time... whether we could/should do a "system restore" & wait until further notice to DL again. But I guess our issues are what you need to see to fix them...But I digress. Thank you again for working hard to store functionality. I needed something right to happen in my life - someone to be an expert at what they do. Thanks for your humanity.
