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!

After updating to Firefox 103, everything in the browser including web pages, are way too big. Oversized. What the heck happened? Why do they do this? On the tool bar with the address field, on the right, I have a zoom icon, etc., and they're all much bigger!

I could adjust zoom, but this is not right. It's all messed up!

Yes I went into Customize Tool bar - Density - and it was already set to "compact - not supported"

I went into about: config - browser.display.os-zoom-behavior - changed to zero. Nothing happened.

I went into the windows settings - display - set to 125% which it always was. Changing to 100% didn't do anything. Went into display - Make display bigger - and it's 160, where I always had it.

Not happening in Chrome or Windows. So it's Firefox.

Hi, everyone. My multirow bookmarks no longer seem to work since my latest update to 107.0 (64 bit). My computer crashed and when it came back up Firefox no longer worked. I reinstalled it and have a bit of cleanup to do, but everything works now except my faithful (up-to-now) multirow toolbar. Here's the code in my userChrome.css file.

/* Multi-Row Bookmarks Toolbar */

  1. PersonalToolbar {
 /* Override max-height */
 min-height: unset !important;
 max-height: unset !important; */

}

  1. PlacesToolbar > hbox:first-child {
   display: block

}

  1. PlacesToolbarItems {
   display: flex;
   flex-wrap: wrap

}

Previously, this was in my profile folder. If I move this out of the profile folder, my browser works fine but there is no multi-row toolbar. If I put it back into the profile folder, I have a multi-row toolbar, but no contentd in the main window.

I am perplexed. Help? --elizabeth

hi,

i'm using FF (version 98 at the moment) to print local files. It is key to me to edit header and footer for each print! the only solution i found so far to edit them at all, is to go to about:config and for example search for print.print_headerleft. Besides that is not usable at all, it simply doesn't work! The header and footer remain the same. Please tell me how can i change header and footer?

If you delete the, in my opinion much better "page setup", why don't you include all it's funktions in the new print dialog?

another problem is the size of the new print preview! it's much to small! make it resizeable please.

Or just give us back the "page setup". That would be a big advantage over chrome and edge, which suffer the same printing problems.

Thanks

I haven't used this laptop (Win10) in a few days, but FFox just updated to 103.0.2 and the icon in the taskbar is no longer there. It's a "blank page" looking thing. Wow. After years of having FFox in my taskbar, I'm surprised by how disorienting this is. LOL.

I unpinned from the taskbar, and the icon appeared for a half second before it went away. Re-pinned, and the blank page icon is back. Creating a shortcut for the desktop works just fine, but I'm used to the taskbar.

Obviously, I can deal with this, but I thought y'all should know that this broke in the last update. At least, for me, it did.

Thanks,

A couple days ago, late, I accidentally closed my main Firefox window before a little window that I'd forgotten was there - and all my 76 tabs disappeared. 1st thing yesterday I tried - 3bar / history / recently closed tabs - but the only thing in there was the one tab from the small window. Urg! I tried that and - 3bar / history / manage - where I could see my tabs but could only restore 1 at a time - not good for 76 tabs. I read a bunch of different questions about this same issue, and tried the suggestions, including some app called scrounge, but none of these restored my tabs. Help!!!!

Just now, after a massive and catastrophic SUPER-MELTDOWN-crash that arbitrarily decided to absolutely murder my day, ALL my tabs and windows and ALL history of "Recently Closed" tabs and windows is gone!

THIS IS COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE!

What is the reason for the existence of a SYNC feature if it isn't to MAKE SURE that a record of open tabs and windows is SECURELY maintained no matter how many times the application crashes, so that AT ALL TIMES, this information is kept INTACT, regardless of the state of the end users device? That is BY FAR the most important part of the sync feature! Are you telling me that there is no backup process of that information?

This is the kind of thing I never expected from you guys at Mozilla. I've been using Firefox for MANY years because I trust what you do. Today that trust has been SEVERELY and BRUTALLY wounded, most likely beyond repair...

I need you to fix this...

I need you to recover that information for me and I need you to make sure that what just happened could never, ever happen again unless God himself caused every digital storage unit on earth to disintegrate.

Hi

If I click my way through https://www.mozilla.org/de/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release I get a different Link everytime. So as someon who wants to distribute Firefox on different PC's , I want to know: Are there any direct download links for the latest version? The best would be some links like Webex has for distribution (e.g. https://mozilla.org/firefox/windows/FirefoxInstaller.exe)

Thanks in advance Robin

Yesterday I had Picture-In-Picture (shortened into pip for next mentions) working on youtube, then after one day, PIP no longer works on any of the websites, including youtube. I tried disabling and enabling pip, entering troubleshoot mode, and none of them worked. Not reinstalling because it will be annoying to log in everywhere I've had account at.

Hello, For no reason I can easily identify, the plus symbol labeled tab to open new tabs from the browser has disappeared. I can still easily use the right click of the mouse or the control t keyboard trick, but I would much prefer the convenience of the ever available and accessible plus tab option. Your help to restore this feature would be very much appreciated. I use a Dell pc laptop with Windows 365 and Firefox. Thank you, Milagra Tyler [email removed from public]

Yesterday I started having trouble logging into Gmail and associated apps (calendar, contacts, docs, sheets, shared folders, etc., as well as google.com) in Firefox. All other sites are loading with no problems. Google apps are working fine in Chrome. Still having problems today.

My office uses Google Workplace for everything so this is really messing me up, I've lost several hours of work trying to get things to load. The IT person told me that if Firefox is having problems I should use Chrome instead. I hate Chrome! I want to use Firefox, but I can't get my work done if it won't load Google apps.

Please note that I have tried the following solutions thus far: restarted Firefox (several times) restarted computer removed add-ons cleared cached web content cleared cookies and site data refreshed Firefox solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1200943 solution at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1132284 solution at https://knowtechie.com/is-mozilla-firefox-not-loading-pages-for-you-heres-the-fix/

After each fix things start working for a while but then everything Gmail-related freezes or crashes and I need to start all over again. Help!!!

So I just updated to version 106.0.1, and I noticed something new in the far right corner of the screen, an arrow with a dropdown function listed as view all tabs. I have no need for this and tried to use the customize toolbar option to remove it. It did not work. How do I get rid of this thing? It's just kinda taking up space on the screen as I doubt I'm ever gonna use it.

Any tips here?

Hello! After updating to the latest version of Firefox (100.0.2, 64-bit), I notice that Google search stops working every now and then. By stops working, I mean I can't use their website https://www.google.com or search using Firefox's address bar or search bar. Searching with other search engines like Bing is working normally. In order to get Google search working again, I have to close and restart Firefox. However, after some time, it stops working again. How can I fix this problem?
