To Firefox developer, please, REVERT THE DEFAULT THEME COLOR BACK TO LIGHT THEME. if you insist on introducing the so called "sleeker" dark theme or similar anti-mainstream things into future updates, MAKE IT OPTIONAL FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TRY/USE IT... THEY CAN CLICK ENABLE/DISABLE-LIKE BUTTON TO SWITCH TO THE "SLEEKER" DARK THEME.

Please STOP setting-up anti-mainstream features AS DEFAULT.

I believe there are lots of people out there beside me who are also extremely annoyed about this theme color change. Sure, there is a workaround by tinkering the about:config 's layout.css.prefers-color-scheme.content-override section, but the annoyance to find out this solution, not to mention the difficulties faced by those who have less knowledge about technobable, is so bad.

I'm on the latest version of Firefox, and it's unable to play videos on Amazon.com & Netflix.com. Neither did the one before 96.0. I first saw this on Netflix.com and when the tech started asking questions about my operating system, I knew they had pulled a fast one. Now Amazon.com has done the same thing with Firefox. This browser should be hiding the underlying operating system, because it's not necessary. I can use both websites with Chrome and have no issue. The same version of Firefox is on my laptop, but it has no problems because that thing is on Windows 10.

I won't bother with all the nonsense written about troubleshooting, because this is strictly the functionality of those websites peeking under the browser to check the O.S. Firefox needs to fix this hole immediately! You're messing with my money now. Monopolies shouldn't be able to control our hardware like this; they're not paying for any of it.

Oh, my TV is having a problem with the apps, so I was forced to watch videos with my computer instead. My laptop screen is too small and can't have my booming speakers connected to it. My desktop monitor is 34".

This started two days ago. I did not recognize what was happening, but the computer slowed to a point of complete unresponsiveness. I had to hold the power button in for a hard shutdown. Next day, I was watching a YouTube video, the video stopped playing, and the computer slowed to a snail's pace. Task Manager revealed something was using up ALL system memory. A look at running processes showed that the culprit was Firefox.

Firefox would start normally, then gobble up all system memory over a few minutes, rendering the computer almost inoperable.

Tried garbage collection, CC, and minimize memory usage under about:memory. This would temporarily reduce overhead, but then it would climb back up next time I started Firefox.

The Ant Video Downloader underwent a redesign days ago; this memory issue started exactly two days ago, on Friday evening, the 7th of January, 2022.

I disabled the add-on. At this moment, Firefox memory use is 642,716 KB of an available 12 GB. There seems to be one main process using the largest share of memory (200-300,000 KB) with 12 other firefox.exe processes running concurrently, all using smaller amounts of system memory. Firefox memory use no longer climbs until all system memory is consumed.

Is there any way to rein in memory use by Firefox add-ons short of disabling them? Are other users reporting this issue? How are add-ons vetted prior to use with the browser? There are few of these video downloaders available. Most are merely copies of a single piece of non-functioning software—but listed under different names, supported by what are clearly fake reviews. Is anyone verifying the integrity of these add-ons in addition to their developers?

In this case, the developer is based in Hong Kong.

Thank you to the community for any assistance offered in this case.

Hello. I updated Firefox yesterday and I have 2 little problems:


1. Can't limit number of processes. Option in settings is missing. They are always about 8 FF processes, so it's hard to kill them quickly from task manager.


2. I use Win7 with classic theme, FF is set to use system theme, and userchorme.css is put in Firefox profile folder. I don't like new unreadable tab design and and modern designs at all. Also I like simple classic look. After last update my URL-toolbar and active tab starts to display white. They were correct colour before update.


I'm uploading screenshot and userchrome.css. Thank you in advance for your answers.

As of version 91 I think it was, around middle of 2021 (last year), in the dropdowns from the across-to-the-top bookmarks menu, the items are spaced out vertically way too much. So much space is wasted. I like the spacing they had before that version. I just want to go on record as giving feedback that I don't like it, and wish it went back to the original spacing. I have looked at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1346987 and know there's all sorts of weird stuff I can do to customize my Firefox to get the spacing I want, however, my point with this post is to get feedback back to the Firefox developers to see if they will consider changing it back. If posting here is not the best way to get feedback back to the developers/designers/product-owners, please let me know the best way. I couldn't find another way.

Win 7 pro 64 bit OS, Firefox browser, system "stable" for 3 years, or as "stable" as windows ever gets. My malware tool "Super Anti Spyware" license is expiring. Trying to update, firefox flags the website & gives a warning about a security risk if license renewal proceeds. I like the SAS tool, it consistently finds more problems than any other. A Malware Bytes scan that is clean can easily show a dozen cookies and Trojans when scanned with SAS. I have been successfully using the tool for over a year without problems. Yet I am reticent to ignore the warning. What do you think ? I have about a week to decide on a course of action.
