As the title says, accidentally updated this morning. Was running version 85 pretty handily. I just want to know how to go back.

I don't care about security issues. I actually tried to revert back myself using my current profile, but it broke all of my addons. Actually, it broke my ability to reinstall them too so even if I wanted them again, I couldn't download them.

Any help is appreciated. Personally, I would prefer to have a "disable until I care about it" button.

Auto-updated to v105 today (105.0.2 64-bit Windows 10) and all bookmarks were gone. Not just gone but the bookmark manager seems not to be rendering properly (see attached image where there should be at least some elements drawn). Additionally, neither the bookmarks nor history left pane show anything (second attachment).

The 105 update was applied this morning when first opening the browser. Profile folder -> bookmarkbackups shows a backup from just before the update. Bookmark library -> Restore gives that backup as an option, but restoring that backup has no effect (does nothing).

Exiting Firefox and manually moving places.sqlite to a backup location and then restarting also has no effect. places.sqlite is rebuilt but library -> restore still has no effect.

I just made the switch from Chrome to Firefox, and I'm still trying to understand the small differences that exist between the 2 browsers.

While on Twitter, what I usually do is middle-click with my mouse on a Tweet to a new tab that I want to look into later, then continue scrolling down my timeline, then check out the Tweets I opened in the new tab(s). However, when I try to do the same thing on Firefox, it automatically opens the new tab. Because of how Twitter works, this also reloads the Home page when I opened it up, so I just lose anything I was just looking at when I opened the Tweet in a new tab.

What can I do differently here?

Recently updated to version 105.0.1 and I've started to have problems with Twitch. I'm unable to login and keep getting the message: "Something went wrong. Please try again." so I cleared the cookies/site data. Still unable to login. I know this isn't an error with my account as I can login via Chrome with no issues. Then I tried downgrading to the previous version 104.0.2 and had no issues with Twitch. Most likely, this new version is creating an error with the Twitch site. Hopefully new updates will address this issue - in the meantime, hoping someone has a solution.

For years I've set the background display color in about:config to a medium gray, #CCCCCC. Main purpose was to change the background color of the about:blank page, which is my home page and my new tab page.

Note I am not overriding colors; #CCCCCC only showed up as the bgcolor for about:blank. Occasionally websites which forgot to specify a background color would show up with a medium gray background, a minor inconvenience and a hint their coding was not so great.

Just realized my background color selection for about:blank isn't working anymore. The background color of the about:blank page is white. Not sure when it changed. I failed to notice when the medium gray disappeared because I have been reflexively pressing the dim screen button. I have vision issues and need to avoid a white screen.

There was a question in 2021 about the about:blank page bgcolor turning white which was archived but does not look resolved.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1344438

Does about:blank now specify a bgcolor, overriding my about:config setting? I still have browser.display.background_color set to #CCCCCC. Do I need to change another value for about:blank now? Thanks for your help.

Hello, I use Firefox 105 on my PC. I have embedded various YouTube videos on my website. I've had the following problem for a few days: I can see my videos on both my smartphone and tablet without going to YouTube. On my PC (Win 10 Pro Vers. 21H2) the display wheel "rolls" without opening the video (... "an error has occurred, try again later"). But if I click on: "Watch on YouTube" plays the video via YouTube correctly. Does anyone have any idea what might be causing this? Is there a wrong setting in the Firefox browser? Many thanks and best regards Helmut

I can't open any youtube shorts, because I get redirected to anti-war videos, or some random videos that got a million views (which I'm guessing they got from other victims of this malware).

I've disabled all extensions and even plugins, restarted Firefox, but the problem persists.

I have an anti-virus installed (Kaspersky), so I'm at a loss of what this could be.

Is there any way to trace the source of the redirect?

HD crashed, had to rebuild. Installed Firefox, logged in, everything was great. Not the first time I have synced my account, its always worked before.

Initially, the sync worked but then I made a ADUC group membership change on my account. Someone had added domain-guest membership to my account which was deleting my windows profile every time i logged off. I removed the domain-guest membership and now my windows profile is saved but my firefox sync refuses to work. It completes but none of my information is there. I've been working on this for 6 hours, trying to load a backup to my profile, nothing works. What a nightmare.

I've pasted a copy of my old profile i had before my HD crashed. I pasted it into the profile location on the rebuild but firefox -profilemanager does NOT list the profiles i pasted into the folder, i have no idea why. They ARE there but it will not list them so i can't select them.

Ideas?

Hi,

I have been using Firefox and Thunderbird for ages now. In the good old days, the automatic update function worked in both Firefox and Thunderbird. However, for at least a year now, neither Firefox nor Thunderbird installs the updated version(s) whenever they are available. Please look at the attached screenshots of my respective settings.

These days I am always warned by a third application that either or both Firefox and Thunderbird has/have update(s). Then I have to install the update(s) manually.

I would appreciate your feedback or advice.

Latest Firefox update 104.0 started displaying "This connection is not secure. Logins entered here could be compromised" again after previously being disabled. It's an annoying message that pops up on my intranet logins and I want it disabled again. I did the usual in about:config and set security.insecure_field_warning.contextual.enabled to False and security.insecure_password.ui.enabled to False like previously, but the message is still there. It seems that latest update is forcing this message and ignoring the settings to disable them. Please help!
