Hey all, I just updated Firefox on PC and the updater asked a couple questions. I chose "Visionary" as the answer to a question because it suited me the best out of all the options. However, this also changed the colors of my browser menu and toolbar to green. The thing is, while green is a fine color, I would never select it as "my" color for anything ever.

I've tried to change the color in about:preferences, but nothing I can find seems to work. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, 106.1, and I'm missing the Firefox View button on my MacBook Pro 13". It is showing on my Mac Mini M1, and both are logged in and syncing properly using my Firefox account.

When I type in about:firefoxview on my MacBook Pro in the URL bar, I see the page but noticed it says "New colorways are on the way" on the right. On my Mac Mini, I see the "Independent Voices" text and an option to "Try colorways".

Bug? Some weird setting on my MacBook? Both are running macOS Monterey, 12.6.

Firefox logo mostly covered by private browsing symbol. Basically private browsing (mask) means Firefox now?

Below I show screen shots of the blank page on firefox which has the firefox logo all but diminished under the private browsing mask. It's the same on the start bar but of course much smaller.

It makes it look like the new brand of firefox is the private browsing mask (I am always in that mode except for netflix).

I prefer the firefox logo and I surely don't need to know when I'm in private browsing on the start bar. The home page I don't care about, but I know I'm in private browsing cause the upper area of firefox says private browsing right on the browser itself. I have no idea why we would need be made aware that we're in private browsing, it seems the opposite would be more helpful.

I'm writing because I don't like this new firefox tiny icon with a big purple mask over it. Wanted to let you know.

If you're changing brands or something? To a purple mask? And private browsing isn't all that great.

The image on the left below is the new firefox icon on the start bar. The one on the right is on the blank page which I don't care about at all but it's just a bigger picture.

Who/what is firefox?

I love firefox, but just saying.

Thanks for hearing.

Hi there. Whenever I open a new tab, it crashes, meaning that the rest of the browser keeps working fine but it is unable to load the contents of about:newtab and replaces them with a crash error. I have been tinkering around with the settings and found out it only happens when "shortcuts" is turned on for New tab. If turned off, New tab loads normally. Full disclosure: I am using Nightly on a computer nearly (but not totally) supported by Windows 11. No Nightly experiments that I think should interfere with a new tab are turned on. Thank you for your time.

Don't mean to complain about such a trivial thing, but on macOS the new icon for Firefox as of 106 just doesn't look right. It was PERFECT before this. Yes, I know I can copy and paste the old one into the new and it's problem solved, but figured I'd post here to see what everyone else thinks. Again, it's not the end of the world, but it just doesn't look right.

Firefox version: v106.0.3 OS: Windows 11 Pro 22H2 build 22623.875

I have 5 different profiles with different number of tabs and add-ons installed. 3 out of 5 crashes, 2 works. The problematic profiles crash 5-6 times on launch, regardless whether Firefox was started in "normal" mode or safe mode. I submitted all crash reports I found at about:crashes. Here are the IDs:

  • bp-f61336b8-fa04-40c7-9945-4853a0221031

  • bp-6eb9503b-08c6-47d9-86b6-c09f00221031

I see various DLLs related to a program called ExplorerPatcher in the reports. I've been using it for months and I've had no crashes with pre 106.x.x versions.

In shutting down and restarting the computer yesterday, it seems that an upgrade, or some sort of change, took place with the Firefox program. Now the tabs are a bright, loud orange in color, causing the appearance of individual tabs to melt together. In addition, the scroll bar is a tomato soup orange. I just want to return to the former eye-friendly colors, which never drew my attention. Now I almost dread having to log on it is so severe. Please tell me exactly what steps are needed to return to the former palge look. Thank you.
