Hi,

I have a red theme (Red Fade) which I like.

However the menus when you click anything on the menu bar (File, Edit etc) remain the default colour (see screenshot attached). I would like these to be red also. Is it possible to change this background colour preferably using the userChrome.css file or alternatively an add-on? I know how to edit the userChrome file, so would like the code if possible please.

Thanks in advance, Paul.

I discovered by coincidence that the add-ons are disabled if you choose never to save history in the Tools / Options menu. That cannot be the intention! Is this a bug?

Previously, Firefox had the option of clearing history on exit while the add-ons were still working, which I think is a much better option! (Or is this option still available? I can not find him.)

Thinkpad T540p Intel Core i5 4200M | 8GB | 240GB SSD | 15,6 inch. on which kubuntu installed like a charm and fast and everything worked perfect. yet the resolution was to low for me so now I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T540p Intel Core i7 4810MQ | 16GB | 512GB SSD | 15,6 inch 2560 x 1620. kubuntu installing took ages on this one. but everything went well and works fast. even Firefox, it's faaast! . but the videos on every site are choppy and lagging but not on the chromium browser. videos perfect! everywhere. but there everything else is slow. I tried everything I could find to change Firefox.. restart, reinstall, refresh, about:config, with or without addons, drivers. it's driving my nuts.. it looks like Firefox can't load the videos properly as if it doesn't have enough strength.. weird.. I had the same problem on my little mini samsung laptop. but this laptop should run it all without problems right? . why did the low resolution one run perfect? can anyone help me please..

There's an add-on that filters out those annoying "This website uses cookies" warnings. A very useful add-on. But since a couple of months, it doesn't work well anymore. According to the maker, the problem only occurs in FF on Win, not in Chrome/Opera and not in FF on Linux. And he states that he contacted FF, but that FF didn't do anything to resolve the problem. See https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/i-dont-care-about-cookies/ > Reviews (in the upper right block) > comment by user 13764671 and the reply.

I'd like to know what the status of this reported problem is. Because as I said, it's a very useful add-on. And there's no alternative.

Hello everyone,

Since the OS on my office PC was updated to Windows 10, Firefox add-ons on do not work properly. I get a blank popup menu when I click on Facebook Container, LastPass does not save my credentials and I have to re-enter them everytime I close a window, Zotero Connector simply does not work at all, and AdBlocker Ultimate does not, well, block ads (see attached images). I should add that every time I start Firefox, the Adblocker Ultimate welcome tab is there. This is really annoying and makes me lose quite a bit of time everyday.

It looks as if Firefox was not saving some of my user settings properly. I tried refreshing Firefox, deleting my profile, uninstalling and reinstalling all add-ons, going to safe mode and back, nothing worked.

I should add that the exact same configuration, with the exact same add-ons works just fine on my personal laptop.

Any idea on what to do or where that might come from?

I want to change the default fonts in Firefox. The problem is that the "Default font" setting doesn't really do this. Going to the "Advanced" dialog shows the truth: for every single writing system, the entries are

Serif: (Default) Times New Roman
Sans-Serif: (Default) Arial
Monospace: (Default) Andale Mono

I want to change which fonts Firefox uses for these "(Defaults)," and I want those defaults to apply to every writing system. Going through every writing system and individually changing them - for every user on the system, mind you - is not an acceptable solution. I didn't see anything in about:config. There is a default, and it needs to be changeable somehow. How?

Prevent Firefox from Clearing the Cache Automatically

Hi all, I'm a photographer and I've been using Firefox as my default/go-to browser for dealing with images-related things like uploading and downloading to server, access… (tuilleadh eolais)

Hi all,

I'm a photographer and I've been using Firefox as my default/go-to browser for dealing with images-related things like uploading and downloading to server, accessing and opening photography-related sites and accounts such as Flickr Pro. I'd like to know if any of you can help me with my problem with cache.

So I've noticed that when using Firefox, oftentimes the cache is being cleared/purged automatically, for reasons I don't know yet. I'd like to know how I can keep the cache, or in other words, prevent Firefox from clearing the cache for any reason whatsoever. I really need the cache and I don't mind keeping a large or even massive cache. I'm browsing the same sites over and over again and I'd like to keep the cache instead of having to download it again everytime I browse the sites with Firefox.

The problem is I've tried things like disabling smart cache size and increasing my disk cache to 4 GB to no avail. Firefox always clears the cache automatically after certain period of time or under certain or specific condition(s). The thing is I don't know how to stop Firefox from tampering with my cache. None of my add-ons is actually tampering with the cache, nevermind clearing it.


Several settings that I've changed/modified manually:

・ browser.cache.auto_delete_cache_version: set to -1.

・ browser.cache.check_doc_frequency: set to 2.

・ browser.cache.disk.capacity: set to 4096000. I read somewhere that a Firefox users and a fellow photographer managed to increase the size to 16 GB with his Firefox 69 and is able to keep his cache until he clears it manually, but I failed to repro his steps since my Firefox always reverted back to 380 MB or something whenever I did that. He's probably using custom userChrome and/or userContent css.

All these settings are set to false: ・ browser.cache.disk.smart_size.enabled ・ browser.cache.disk.smart_size.first_run ・ browser.cache.disk.smart_size.use_old_max

・ browser.cache.memory.capacity: set to 2048000.

・ media.cache_size: sometimes I set this to 4096000 to see if it helps with anything, but most of the time it is set to its default value (unchanged).

・ browser.tabs.remote.warmup.enabled: set to false. I might accidentally added this to my 56.0.2 (and set it to false) since I don't remember tab warming being in pre-Quantum, but my 69.0.2 has this and I set it to false. There is also a thing with mouse cursor hovering over a tab making it reload the tab, but only after Firefox clear my cache.


If any of you curious about why I'm using 56.0.2, it's because I'm still using Multi Paste and Go add-on, which is a Godsend to me. It's really helpful with accessing or opening several links or images at once, oftentimes more than 30-40 images, and unfortunately the add-on is not made compatible with 69.0.2. I'm a very careful person when it comes to security and I never opened any sites with questionable or suspicious quality, just things related to work (photography) and bills (So-Net Nuro, Softbank, etc.) so please don't worry about my browsing habits or security risks. I also always disable Flash plugin.

At this point, I really have no idea how to prevent Firefox from clearing my cache. Sometimes Firefox clears my cache when I am still browsing, sometimes when I leave it idle. Sometimes I can reach over 1 GB of cache size before Firefox clears it, sometimes Firefox clears the cache when the size is still about 100-200 MB.

I always perform system maintenance manually (from updating OS to installing drivers, from setting up Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom to making backups) so I'd rather clearing my cache manually instead of letting Firefox do that for me.

Can any of you help me with my problem with cache?

I appreciate and thank for the help, advice, suggestion and assistance you could provide. I don't mind using custom userChrome or userContent as long as you don't mind guiding me with it (I never used it before).

I'm looking forward to get your help and feedback. Thank you very much.

After following all the suggestions found by searching video autoplay, Firefox currently still autoplays videos with the sound muted. This is in websites other than those like YouTube, such as news websites and the like. What I REALLY want is to COMPLETELY PREVENT automatic playback of any of these videos, and if necessary, whitelist domains like YouTube to allow autoplay. Is this even feasible?

I downloaded a malicious add-ons extension called "YouTube to MP3 Convert Button" by "Firefox user 6248547". All it did was open a video conversion website, which worked for the first video I tried (with alot of popups) but the second video I tried, it redirected me to a fake Firefox update page. As soon as I tried to cancel it, a login popup kept appearing and all my open tabs immediately went haywire trying to do some kind of redirect, and I it would not let me click on anything. I quickly ended the process to force close the browser, restarted Firefox and cleared my cache and uninstalled the extension. I am concerned about what kind of malware this may have installed on my machine. I reported this user over a month ago, but it is still available on the add-on page, and other people also commented about it having malware. Any suggestions?

Setting browser.cache.disk.parent_directory to dynamic location (different for each user)

I’m attempting to set browser.cache.disk.parent_directory in about:config to a custom dynamic path string using the Windows %username% variable in order to make it so that each Windows account has its Firefox cache in a different location that is somewhere other than each user’s AppData. What I tried to use was this:

T:\Users\%username%\Firefox\Cache

However, that created a folder path with %username% (literally, not substituted by its value as a Windows variable) as part of it. Is there some way for me to accomplish this?

I am trying to open magnet links with Firefox. I've gotten to the point where it asks me which program I want to open magnet links with. I want to point it to qBittorrent, which is in /usr/bin, however firefox cannot open either of these folders when browsing for the application. It always says access denied. I have tried granting it permissions thru Ubuntu Software and it did nothing. Seems like a very obvious problem. How can I choose an application if I cant ever access where they're stored? Im trying to switch from Chrome but it's proving to be way more difficult than it needs to be.

My company uses an old ESR version of Firefox, which of course doesn't suit my needs. So I installed portable FF alongside this one, and uses it almost anytime (I know that I break the company policies...)

Up to FF 66, everything was fine, and I only had to launch Portable FF first to have it "taking the lead" and been used by default everywhere.

Firefox 67 has introduced the "side by side" feature, which is certainly nice and suits the huge majority of people. But not me... I now have both versions always running alongside, and Windows defaults to the old version, of course, since it is my company's setting.

Documentation for FF67 states "side by side mode is now enabled *by default*". Therefore, I have the obvious question: how can I disable this, since it is apparently the default, and not a mandatory setting.

I haven't found any clue to do that after many researches....
