As described above I'm now seeing section descriptions in a program app I've been using in my work successfully over the past two years. Now, all of a sudden, the section titles in the program are faded gray almost to white, which makes entering info (not to mention eye strain), really difficult. Just wondering if this might have been something that occurred with the last Firefox update.

I've tried adjusting the screen resolution but it makes no difference. See the screenshot with this message.

How to add a search engine? I don't want an Add-On or Extension. Just another search engine.

Instead it takes me to the Add-Ons page. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-CA/firefox/extensions/category/search-tools/ What has this got to do with adding a search engine to the browser? Must be a mistake.

Lately I've found on a number of occasions that I've pasted the URL of an image into the Firefox address bar, but instead of the image loading, it's somehow led to a page opening - even though the URL STILL shows that it's an image and not a page?

Here's an example: https://64.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m0p5jy7Lhh1qzfdsjo9_250.gif If I paste this GIF URL into the address bar, it often loads a page which says "tumblr" in the corner. But sometimes it just loads the image!?

Any idea what's going on here?

I just updated from Firefox 96.0.3 to Firefox 97. When I try to print I get the Firefox preview, even though I have print.tab_modal.enabled set to false. Please fix it so that I can get the print system dialog without going via the Firefox preview. Note that I have now reverted to Firefox 96.0.3 and won't update from this unless the problem is fixed.

Firefox 97 installed itself , and now I have two print dialogs each time I go to print something. I have the system print dialog , and the Firefox print dialog. Does anyone one know a way to turn of the Firefox dialog in 97?

I fixed it in earlier versions by setting

print.tab_modal.enabled = false

...but in Firefox 97 it seems this no longer does the job.

Grateful for any advice.

My custom theme was reverting back to the default every time I started Firefox. Going into my theme and disabling and re-enabling it worked, but having to do that every time was annoying. Googling the problem came up with many links to Mozilla support and only said that that it was likely a setting in the "prefs.js" file or a corrupted "extensions.json" file. Unfortunately, no one else was pointing me to what parameter in the prefs.js file I needed to search for. So I had to find it myself. So I made a backup of the file for safety, fired up my Edit Pad Lite text editor, and opened the prefs.js file. Yikes, lots of values. So I carefully searched for the word "theme". I kept pressing F3 to continue searching for the next occurrence of the word "theme" (without the quotes of course). I finally found these 2 lines:

user_pref("lightweightThemes.persisted.footerURL", true); user_pref("lightweightThemes.persisted.headerURL", false);

Hmm. The lightweight theme header was false. Could it be that simple to change it to true? So I made sure I had shut down Firefox as Mozilla states that the prefs.js file is overwritten by Firefox upon exiting, changed the value to "true", saved the file, and restarted Firefox. Viola, my theme stayed on. I selected other themes, exited and restarted Firefox, and that theme was still there and not reset to the default. My problem was solved. I don't know how that value got set to "false" (and don't care), but now that it's set to "true" my theme is working every time I use Firefox. I'm surprised that no one else had found and posted this simple solution.

I am disappointed with the background change with updates. The last time I updated Firefox, I had to do a system recovery to revert back. Then another person expressed concerns with a new version taking control over updating. Why don't you have updates that give you options to choose the background color and who decides if and when you update? I will not update Firefox under these conditions. And I don't want to spend half a day trying to change my background back to white, and especially if would have to do that with every update. Like I have to change my printing options when I do updates! I have been so happy with Firefox for the last 20 yrs. or so, until all of this. Please make this more user friendly and optional.

I'm a long time Firefox user and for years I used the Notes section in Mozilla Firefox Bookmarks until it was removed in Rel 6.2. Next I used the ESR path to save all my Notes in Firefox Bookmarks. I used the notes to store the "what was your favorite dog?" security question, and notes on how to find hidden document at that web site.

This forum then suggestion I install an Extension "Bookmark Notes" It took a lot of time to manually copy my answers over to "Bookmark Notes", web site by web site, to all of my PCs.

Now I find that all of my information is missing from this extension and "Bookmark Notes" has gone unsupported since 2021.

  • How can I repair "Bookmark Notes" Extension?
  • Where are the notes stored for this extension?
  • Can I reload all the copied information from a back up of my windows drive?
  • Is there a replacement for the "Bookmark Notes" extension?
