Firefox 102esr has almost every menu, popup and screen in dark mode - which I find extremely difficult to read, given I'm antique.

I've tried all the modes like light, system etc nothing seems to fix it.

Am I going to need a stack of css code to fix it - code for each and everything I want to set back to light, or is there a setting to achieve this?

Hi,

I am signed into a Firefox account. I have used this account on at least three different computers. I have downloaded the application anew at least a dozen times.

Firefox randomly, from where I sit, opens things in French rather than English. How can I keep it in English unless otherwise specified (I occasionally want German or Japanese)?

Thank you.

best, Sea

Recently Firefox started "crashing." It would be running just fine, and then websites would just stop loading. If I clicked a link or searched for something, it would be stuck loading until I restarted Firefox. I tried restarting my computer as well, but that didn't work either, as the issue just came back within a few hours.

Sooo I went to google to search for answers. I got to a forum (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/881250) that seemed promising, and edited my network.http.max-connections value from 900 to 48, as the chosen answer suggested. I figured if it didn't work, I could always just change it back.

How wrong I was.

Not only did it not work, it prevented me from doing anything. Now when I open Firefox, nothing loads. I can see the toolbar, search bar, and my bookmarks, but the actual screen is blank. No widgets with my frequently visited sites and some news stories, no homepage, just blankness. When I enter a url or do a random search or even try to open about:config, nothing happens. It doesn't even show a loading icon.

I attempted to refresh Firefox, but it got stuck in the loading stage, which I attributed to my already breaking it somehow. So I uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox. But no dice. It's still entirely unresponsive.

Any help would be appreciated. Please keep in mind I'm largely computer illiterate!

I'm not sure what I did when using Multi Account Containers (Must have clicked "yes" to always open in a specific container when accessing Microsoft, www.office.com. I enter user name and password and Firefox containers prompts me to Always open in container and I click no. It's like I'm stuck in an endless loop, each time I enter user name, password and two-factor a new tab opens and I have to do it all over again (Never getting into office.com). However, when using private windows I am able to get in. Can I turn off, "Always open in X container"? Thank you.

The designers seem to be intent on making this as painful as possible. You'd think you could just open them, at least in text form. Wasn't that possible before? I can in Notepad if I want to look at hundreds of pages of gibberish that would take days to copy and paste over. In my updated Firefox it offers a Restore function but to do that I have to wipe out all my existing Bookmarks. Who dreams of this stuff? Why would anyone sane want to do that?

When I click to check stock it opens another page but the only thing on the page is the browser frame with the word "safe" in the upper left corner. The links work on all my other browsers. I have used troubleshooting mode and refreshed Firefox but it continues to happen.

I can really use some help. Odd Firefox behavior.

Been using Firefox forever. And the same way every day. Same way. Have a working group of 88 sites I open after starting Firefox. Usually takes 2-3 minutes tops for all to be readied. Now taking 10-12 minutes or more. Just last few days.

I have three versions of Firefox. Right now main is 91.12 ESR which updated a few days ago. Also 91 ESR portable and 102.1 ESR Portable. All act the same. All used the same profile, copied from one to another.

Things do change so I see that my ESET antivirus updated and could be it. Turning ESET off temporarily made no difference.

Opening the session does use 100% CPU, but that is not new. Always has pegged. Comes down to normal when all opened. Single sites open as expected. And after all sites opened, FF acts as it always did with no issues. Its just loading all the tabs that is the issue.

ODD Note: If I open the 91 ESR profile, then Startup Cache folder, clear the cache from about: Support, it does not delete the files. Yet that IS the profile being used. On at least one of the portables, that works as expected. If I delete the Startup cache files and open FF 91 ESR, it does not rebuild them. Makes me think it is using a different profile, but I am sure it is not.

I cannot try Safe Mode as the Session Manager would not be there to open the saved session. I may try turning off some Add-ons to see if a conflict, maybe with something added or updated recently.

Connection speeds have not changed and are above 400 Down and 150 Up.

As mentioned, this has worked for years. Sometimes with as many as 120 tabs. So it has to be a recent change.

I do have changes made to about:config but no idea where to try to make changes there to sleuth this issue. Happy to post the changed items, though long list.

Can anyone help at all? Anything more I can tell you?

Windows 10 latest build.

Hi!

For the past month or so, some youtube clips keeps on loading and do not play.

When I switch to another video, it either plays or keeps loading again. Refreshing the page doesn't help. Clearing data (cookies, site data, and cache) do not help either. The only solution is to close the window which I'd rather not have to do every time. There doesn't seem to be any rule to the types of clips that plays or doesn't. Any ideas?

I'm using windows 10. Firefox is the latest 103.0.2 (64-bit). Thank you!

YouTube worked fine in the past, but for at least the last few days (likely longer) Firefox 103.0.1 won't play anything. Chrome works fine still. Other large transfers work fine.

Latest video I tried to play: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WkN8Aqb2IBc Is a DND group playing with an actor from The Outpost (TV show on CW)

In Firefox I see the initial video preview image, and after clicking to play I get a constant spinning progress animation but the video never plays. Turning on the debug overlay info shows plenty of download capacity detected (I forget the name in the UI) but very little ever transfers (bars further down).

Only oddity I can see in the debug info it puts in the the clipboard is the wrong Angle GPU. I have 2 x NVIDIA 1080ti's in SLI, and it sees a 980. Chrome shows the expected value instead. I filed a bug on the Angle project just in case. I looked on the Firefox about:support page with hardware acceleration disabled and it showed two webgl driver entries (1 and 2), both with 1080ti listed.

I tried disabling the performance feature setting and hardware acceleration (closed app then opened again). No difference.

Windows 10 x64, latest patches. Latest NVIDIA drivers through GFE (auto updates itself). Two Windows 10 graphics options are on (GPU scheduler and Variable Refresh Rate).

I've seen a couple notifications from Windows about Firefox "attempting" to use GPU hw acceleration, but I have no idea why it'd be blocked. Clicked it and it did nothing. I looked in my event viewer and didn't find anything useful either. I haven't manually set any applications to use a certain GPU. Integrated GPU from CPU is disabled in BIOS.

GPU isn't overclocked. CPU is barely. And I see no reason to think this is related. In the past I'd get reboots and event viewer errors. Even when it worked in the past I was similarly overclocked. All programs (diagnostics) I've run to verify proper functioning have passed.

I see that there was a new version loaded yesterday so don't know if this relates. Starting today, when I open Firefox, it opens in a small screen in the upper left corner. I want it to open in full screen. I have to click twice to get the full screen. I do not mean the screen that F11 gives since I still want my tabs at the bottom. I have Windows 10 and Firefox 103.0.2.

I realize that this is an annoyance that has a workaround. I just want what I had yesterday. Thanks in advance for your help.
