As many here have said, the latest Firefox update has reversed many web pages and menus from white-with-black text to black-with-white text. I can't believe that Mozilla really meant to do this. This is very annoying. It would be one thing to offer it as an option, but to just jam it to us without warning is plain obnoxious. I did do the about:config color-scheme override but that only fixed my Firefox search page. Everything else is still black. Thanks a lot.

Fx89Padlock-Triangle: A padlock with a triangle indicates that Firefox is not blocking insecure passive content, such as images. By default, Firefox does not block mixed passive content; you will simply see a warning that the page isn't fully secure. Attackers may be able to manipulate parts of the page like displaying misleading or inappropriate content, but they should not be able to steal your personal data from the site.

I didn't ask for this change, and I don't want it. Black on white is hard on my eyes to read.

I've already checked around the forums and nothing that other posters have suggested works to change it back. Yes, I use a custom theme and I'm not going to change it to "white". I didn't make any changes , firefox did.

A website I use to move money - getting message telling me cookies is blocking 3rd party cookies. and I need to enable 3rd party cookies. I go to settings in firefox and for the information to set settings to enable cookies 3rd party they do not work. They tell me to check and uncheck boxes that I do not even have for setttings. I never had this problem before until Jan. of 2022. I have to use a different browser to get to the website and complete my task. There is something in the Firefox browser or they made changes/updates. Need step by step instructions. NEED TO TALK TO SOMEONE.

Received a pop-up saying Firefox not working. Tried to refresh but icon wouldn't go to home screen. It placed a folder on my desktop "Old Firefox Data". Restarted computer but still couldn't get in. Tried to do Sync, but asked me to sign in and when I clicked on that it tried to run my email but didn't show the "m" in ".com" [....@gmail.co ]. After several attempts I had to download Firefox again. It shows some of my icons on the default page, but not others.

How do I get back to the home page I had previously constructed?

Hello, Mozilla has been getting very slow, am using regularly Brave browser now, as from click is 4 seconds to use, yet now Mozilla 96.0 is 25 seconds to start. Both have Ghostery installed & Adblock Plus so don't use that crap predictable excuse, I will not disable these. Both have full clean out of temp files & cache whenever closed down. I will never sign in as big momma tracks all searches. Always use anonymous as never eve sign in except for sites required. Never ever sign in using any browser unless checking email, then flush out after. Also Themes now is dark, though dark google them show dark / light as default. Getting used to Brave as chromium based without holes, some things I still use Mozilla but slowness is real issue

Before I reached out to you I contacted https://MyCobra.tpa.com administrators and tech support, to describe the problem. My login credential, my account, etc. are all in order. When attempting to submit the login credential to access my account I get over the submit button a red circle with a red diagonal line across the circle that inhibits pressing the submit button. The first time I attempted this on a different laptop I was asked by their tech support to not attempt to press the button but instead to hit the enter key on my keyboard. It worked! I got in! However, when I tried it again at a later time I could not get in. So, I decided to try a different browser; Edge repeatedly worked by hitting the enter keyboard key. This clearly suggests an issue with Firefox an this web portal.

I am running security add on features on Firefox. I turned them all off and run the browser in troubleshooting mode. No Joy! The problem persists. That's where you come in. I would rather not migrate to Edge, I do not like living on the edge so to speak. I am attaching a screenshot of the problem. I hope that you can help me find a solution. I look forward to your reply. Thank you.

PLEASE think of the end-user for ONCE in your developer's life and STOP moving around the option to take screenshots please!!! First it was in the right-click menu (best option, I still try to find it there every single time just like the Copy and Paste options) then you moved it to the "..." address bar menu, and now it was removed once again and the user must customize the toolbar to add the button?? Seriously? Who thought this would be more user friendly? Please provide a single reason to justify this Microsoft-ish behaviour.

Surely the option will be completely removed in next version, to force users to return to a previous version.

PS. did Yahoo already acquire Mozilla? That would explain a lot.

according to the add-on page in Settings, the AdBlock Plus add-on is enabled in my browser, but it doesn't appear to be working. so I am trying to access the menu options to control it. to do that, I need to add the icon to my toolbar.

this article: https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/955157

explains two methods:

1. go to Settings --> Customize Toolbars, and drag the icon to the toolbar. this doesn't work, because the icon is not there to be dragged (even after I restore defaults).

2. go to the View Menu --> Toolbars --> Add-on Bar and move the icon from one toolbar to another.

quite apart from the fact that it took me two days to figure out how to get the View Menu to appear, that procedure doesn't work either because after View Menu --> Toolbars --> the Add-on Bar is not listed.

can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.


thank you,

in the instructions to make Firefox my default browser it says that when you click on the Make Default button "The Set Default Programs window will open."

that isn't what happens.

instead I get a window headed: "Set Associations for a Program". this asks me to make choices about filetypes I know nothing about. four of them are pre-selected, so I click Save at the bottom right but this does not make Firefox my default browser.

what am I doing wrong?

thank you

Some major probs just developed & now I have a totally different theme & a new version of Firefox 56.0 installed today... See image of installed programs

while I still have Firefox 95.0.2 from 12/20/2021 Firefox 54.0.01 from 8/19/2017 Firefox 61.0.01 from 7/30/2018 Over time newer versions accumulate & I've been told not to try to uninstall any of the older versions as it may crash ALL versions


it happened I think sometime after closing a normal session ... I was trying to clear out everything (junk & temp files etc.) as I normally do when using CCleaner then a message said Previous session not correctly closed a message said Firefox is still running do you want to force it to close" I said yes...then it said "its taking a long time to close... do you want to force it to close? I said yes... this happens occasionally & with EDGE as well...but usually there's no problems afterwards

btw: I'm using [Windows 8.1] & after several attempts at restarting Firefox...with different 'fixes' including using safemode... I did a computer restart ... & I did a regular profile backup last time 12/16/21 so as a last resort it may help...but I'm afraid to try to mess with it

anyway...then I was trying to look up solutions & for those of us who are not tech savvy..there's too much info & too may options & links & they lead to new articles like using about:config & browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash & restoring sessions etc which just gets confusing I copied raw data to clipboard (which is a million pages) & then copied text to clipboard (not as bad...but it may help someone to help me....

hopefully someone can straighten this out for me... I'm worn out trying to figure it out myself thanks

Periodically, randomly is all I can say, a message window opens when I power on with a statement about "UpdateBrowserForApp" having stopped working; and then I'm given options to close the program, etc. See attached screenshot.

Firefox is the only browser I use. Is this message from Firefox or does it mean I should do something related to Firefox?

Thanks for whatever info or help you can give. Lee
