Appearance background color issues in Windows 7, since v96.0

I have yet another issue to present that I am 100% certain that the developers bear 100% responsibility as a result of releases 96.0 and 96.01. There is a 0% margin for error on this assessment.

I am not presenting this issue because I require personal assistance. I haven’t done a damn thing wrong. I am presenting this issue, so that it would potentially get noticed by or forwarded to one of the developers, or by a user that happens to relay this issue to them.

I am using Windows 7. Therefore, I am uncertain if the issue extends to Windows 10 and 11. The issue does not affect the browser’s functionality.

In my Windows appearance settings, I have always chosen to have a pale yellow color for the background. It relieves the harshness of the white colored background when I am typing in Word for extended hours. I have had this setting for years and never altered it.

Since 96.0, they finally fixed the Bookmarks lag issue, which was pertinent to Windows 7 users. The Bookmarks issue began as of 92.0. I raised that issue as well, and called out the developers as being solely responsible for that. Unfortunately, whatever the developers did in the 96.0 and 96.01 updates, my pale yellow background setting is now appearing on specific websites that must have a clear background in some parts. In other words, those backgrounds used to appear as white on these specific websites. Here are two examples of commonly-used websites that now are displaying my background color setting instead of white. The NCAA football website and the BBC website.

https://www.bbc.com/news

As stated in my Bookmarks complaint, there is a blatant absence of any methodical thought process by its development team. They release far too many updates in any given year. Between the 96.0 and 96.0.1 was less than 24 hours. That’s how you know that these people are clueless what they are doing. Then you have this newly introduced issue as a result of fixing others as of 96.0. It’s a very sad state of affairs over at Mozilla. It appears to be a hopeless situation.

If I wanted my background appearance setting to appear on all websites, all I would have to do is set the “Override the colors specified by the page with your selections above” to “ALWAYS”. I have double checked the color settings in Firefox and confirm that my settings have not altered from default. The override… setting is set to “Only with high contrast themes” and the background color is set to white.

The issue that I just presented is 100% on the developers. Don’t even bother trying to challenge it. I was spot-on with the Bookmarks assessment on blame as well. I only provide accurate assessments on blame.

Here’s some advice for the Mozilla developers. Why not fix this issue and kindly spare us with any further updates for the remainder of the year. You people are doing a pathetic job.

This may be a Windows 7 issue only.

For the past day or two, I've had great difficulty in accessing my Microsoft Outlook email account within the Firefox browser. I've looked up various fixes on Microsofts end, but none have worked, so I'm figuring it may be a browser issue. I can access the account in google chrome just fine; I can also access it in private mode. I've erased cookies, but that's only a temporary fix.

I'm getting a 500 error, a perpetual redirect before the website times out/crashes.

The minimize, restore and close window buttons don't work in Firefox 94. I can perform these operations other ways, such as pressing Ctrl+W, or double-clicking the title bar to restore. But the actual buttons don't work, even with all my add-ons disabled. They work in other profiles, just not my main one.

Has anyone heard of a problem like this before? (I'm on Windows 7 x64)

Firefox still won't play the videos on MSN websites. All other websites are ok. This is a known problem that goes back almost ten years now.

All cookies and other cache items have been cleared and Firefox has been refreshed and it still does the same exact thing only on MSN websites. All other websites are ok and all other browsers except Firefox have no issues playing videos on MSN.

There has been a legitimate issue with the bookmarks since the 92.0 update. This applies only to Windows 7 users. The list is very lazy and will actually freeze up. It takes forever to highlight the bookmark you want and the favicons are delayed in populating. Refreshing Firefox doesn't work. Renaming favicons.sqlite and places.sqlite, and those with the -shm and -wal extensions, if existing, doesn't work either. I don't need help from contributors. The following message is to the developers &/or whoever bastardized Firefox since the 92.0 update...


As I stated, this is a Windows 7 issue. The developers should fix this problem for us Windows 7 users. It was them who caused this issue since the 92.0 update. Everything worked perfect until then. Here’s a bright idea for the developers. How about getting this matter fixed, so that us Windows 7 users can have the same functionality as everyone else. Stop screwing around with a million and one updates every year. You people are doing more harm than good. The people running Chrome are a hell of a lot more intelligent. No issues whatsoever with Windows 7! Try that on for size.

Is there a way to use a list of sites you want to block with the manage exceptions option in settings. Several times now I have gone to the option and found it empty of entries, having to replace the sites I need to add one at a time blocking and reopening the option for each entry. Two things would be of great help: 1. find out how the manage exceptions option is being cleaned out and stop that action from happing 2. I have prepaired a text file listing the sites that I feel I don't want cookies from, a way to enter that list as a group (batch) into the manage exception blocking setting at least would make the work faster.

I enter the list to my host file also block them with my firewall witch dose some good on the house side of the blocking but little on the browser side.

anyhow any of this you can help with would be great. Don Smith smitm13@msn.com

I used to have Firefox ESR 78.15.0 - I now have ESR 91.3.0 and do not like it. One of my most useful tools has been removed (you could right click in a page and you got a box that would allow you to view the page's properties. The one on the new version takes you to a different page with a lot of computer language). I want to know how to go back to the previous version of windows as this feature helped me a lot with my work.

Just installed Firefox and it turned all my .webm videos and .PDF files into Firefox HTML Documents. This is totally unacceptable, how can this browser be released to the public this way. I need access to the videos for editing for work. Our software will not recognize HTML documents as videos.....gee, there's a surprise. Now, my manager is giving me a hard time for installing Firefox, since the preferred browser that we're suppose to use is Google Chrome. He's telling me I need to get this resolved because they're not going to pay for our IT guy to come in and fix it. I've always used Firefox in the past and never had this problem until I reinstalled the Windows operating system and reinstalled Firefox. How do YOU fix this, I need the videos back in their true format.
