Sometime in the past few weeks the quality of any video I watch from any source has turned awful. Too much contrast, too vibrant. I checked all my settings on my monitor, and all is as it should be. I'm a photographer and aware of image quality and settings. Still images are perfect and the monitor displays stills correctly. My monitors are working fine. When I checked videos via Google Chrome, they all displayed perfectly. So, I can only deduce that it's a Firefox browser issue. I haven't added any new add-ons or extensions. I know that the browser has updated at least twice in recent weeks.

I have attached a screen shot of the difference between a chrome and firefox video. Please help. I don't want to change to using chrome. Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Firefox is great but is there a way to add the Help => About Firefox webpage in Firefox home page? This is to simplify Firefox updates. Because although Firefox downloads updates, you still need to activate Help => About Firefox to update the Firefox version.

In Chrome you can add this to home page: chrome://settings/help and when you open Chrome it goes to this page and updates itself.

Does Firefox have the same capabilities so that we don't need to wait on users to click on Help => About Firefox to update Firefox?

Thanks and regards,

QB

I have adblocker plus and is not blocking my facebook ads. (I am using it on my iMac). So I removed it, then reinstalled it and it still does not block the facebook ads.

I tried refreshing firefox 3 times but it got stuck in the "almost done" part and I had to quit firefox each time since it would not complete the process.

What else can I do?

Thanks, Martha

How do I permanently remove this new Bing search engine from Firefox Browser? I don't like Bing. I go into settings, and change my default search engine to Google. But, the moment I search for something it shows that its Bing in the top left corner of the page. I can't get rid of it. Please help! I really don't like Bing! It has never fully helped me find what I'm looking for, or been thorough when searching for what something means. Can you please help me remove Bing from Firefox Browser? I sent 2 images showing what I mean. The first shows me wanting to use google to search for a word. And, in the second is what happens after I do that. You can clearly see Microsoft Bing in the top left corner. Thank You for any and all of your help & time!

Hi,

I've imported around 200+ passwords from another web browser as '.csv file' in Firefox from option of 'import from a file.'

During the import, I was logged into my Firefox account as well.

But, after resetting PC, I downloaded the Firefox and logged on with my Firefox account, and there are only 29 passwords showing up, rest of the passwords are not there.

And, now I do not have access to that .csv file as well.

I am on Windows 11 and had reset my PC with option to 'Keep My Files' so there is no data loss as per my side or on the hard disk drive.

Please help me to get those passwords back. They are extremely important to me.

Thanks in advance!

Just recently, in the past day or so, when I do a search in the search box, all the results get redirected to Bing instead of Google, that I have in my settings as default. I have checked my settings, I even removed Bing from the list, and I still only get Bing results. Even when I go to Google and use their search box on their domain, I get Bing results. I did a virus scan without finding any problems. I'm stumped and don't understand why this happened and nothing I do can detect uncovers why this is happening.

Really irritating when I have to spend my time fixing stuff that is lurking in cyberspace!

I've tried everything to fix poor picture quality when streaming "third party" videos, e.g., YouTube. Colors are washed out; weird contrast; everything looks like it's coming through a haze. Streams from Netflix, Amazon look normal. And sorry, guys, the same third party streams from YouTube et al. look totally normal in the MS Outlook browser. Have tried all kinds of settings and rebooted as well. No change.

Please advise. This problem appears to be unique to Firefox.

The link colors are suddenly incorrect. Normally the links are blue and the visited links are purple, but now they are pastel light-blue and pastel pink. This problem is not in Edge or Chrome. I am using Firefox 113.0.1

I have tried - rebooting windows - windows shutdown, wait, restart - changing the firefox website appearance and themes (auto, dark, light) Still no solution. Any ideas? Thanks.

Lately when opening something in full screen it shows the background as sort of a frame around it. The dark blue at the top is the header background colour I use. It's really annoying. I can't tell if it happened in a recent update as those happen automatically. But it's just been the past few days. I use 113.0 (64) right now. I'm sending a screenshot of how it looks.

In youtube videos, creators will say "click the link above" and point and often there will be links on screen during a video for related content, aka annotations. They simply don't exist in firefox. I can't click or even see them. I opened YT in chrome and the annotations all pop up and are clickable. Annotations are turned on I've cleared cookies to no avail. Please advise.

Hello, Today, when I first open Mozilla I noticed that I have problems with fullscreen mode. When I use fullscreen (f.g. on YouTube, but it's with all clips in other pages too) I can see white borders (on the left, right and at the bottom). I checked on other browser (Chroma) and I don't have this problem there. Can this problem be connected with new update? Or something just broke and I should re-install?
