It's on an older machine but updating my hardware is not an option right now. I don't have this problem on any of my newer machines. I've been using firefox exclusiverly on multiple machines for more than 15 years and I have never had this or any issues until now.

Hello!

I have firefox 74 (64-bit), after one of the bluescreens that sometimes happen for my laptop, my Firefox tabs became very, very transparent.

This is it how it looked before: https://puu.sh/Fnzh1/b606c91b73.jpg

This is how it looks now: https://puu.sh/FLYyk/63fb3fab0e.jpg

As you can see, in both cases I have 3 tabs opened and some other firefox window below. However, opacity is very high in the first case and you almost don't see anything else aside of the 3 tabs opened, while in the current situation is like non-existent and if not the difference in the size of the tabs, you wouldn't even notice that these tabs are not from the current window, but from some other window below!

Can someone help me understand how it happened and, more importantly, how to fix this problem? I tried searching options for things like 'transparency', 'transparent', 'opacity', etc., but couldn't find anything :-(

Why can't firefox save a file on my desktop creating a meaningful shortcut reflecting the logo of the icon's identity ?

First I saved the file on my desktop with firefox. When I attempted to open it later, all I saw was a list of unscripted files that were meaningless. I then proceeded to save the original file on my desktop using internet explorer..proceeded to open it and all the pages and graphics were intact. So tell me why I should continue using firefox when all I see is jumbled java script. I need to save files on my desktop.

Basic TROUBLESOME issues like this, which are of prime necessity to this user, firefox seems to ignore .

the how-to described adding a mailto (client?) only up to a certain point. could someone specifically illustrate how to add AOL as an option even though it's merely a website and not technically an 'app'? (or, it's an external app...whatever). this would assist many who prefer AOL but who visit websites that don't encode MAILTO properly...or something. thanks.

I am switching to Windows 10 on a new laptop. I downloaded Firefox. Trying to log in using my original email address and password that I use on my old computer for Firefox. Doesn't accept password. When I try to change password email indicates the message is coming from the IP address of my old laptop..... which it isn't.... not sure how to fix this. I cannot log in on my new laptop because of the password. I am sending this from my old laptop simply because I can't log in to help on the new one.

Since updating to Firefox 70.0 my desktop notifications aren't working on Windows 7 PC. I used to get a notification near the Windows taskbar when I received an email or a facebook event. I've checked in Firefox options and they are definitely enabled. I've also checked on the permissions for the individual sites and notifications are definitely set to Allow. I've tried clearing the cache/cookies/data completely. I've also tried disabling notifications and then re-enabling them
