Hello, Firefox seems to be using my system's High Contrast text color to render websites. My High Contrast text color is a light grey, to contrast with a dark system background. However, many webpages on the internet have light backgrounds, so when Firefox uses this color, I can't read the text. I already have Options>Language and Appearance>Colors>Override the colors specified by the page set to "Never." This also occurs in a brand new profile with 0 extensions or addons in Safe Mode. I just want Firefox to display webpages "normally", i.e. with black text, without regard to the current system colors.

To reproduce: - Turn on High Contrast - Visit a site such as http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/ppois.html - Change system High Contrast text color to any color you wish - Notice that the text on the page also changes to the same color, even with the setting on "Never"

Is there any way I can get Firefox to ignore the system's text color settings? Chrome renders the webpage just fine with black text.

I'd like it if Firefox would automatically convert webp images to jpg or png files instead of the opposite... stop trying to save png or jpg files as webp... and stop serving me webp images when it is optional. I understand there are websites that ONLY display webp format images, but I am also aware that jpg and png files exist on many of these websites as well. I do not want to disable the ability to display webp in the browser, but I want to turn off whatever option is currently turned on.

I'd like to go back to being able to right click, Save Image As > and end up saving a png or jpg. There have been several websites over the last few weeks that I have visited, and even if the image in the URL is named jpg or png, Firefox tries to save it as a webp. This is complicating my image saving process. I am using the Add-on named "Save webP as PNG or JPEG" which works, but slows down my saving process considerably. The Add-on does not remember the last folder I saved an image to, and adds several additional clicks to what used to be a simple process.

Is there a way in about:config to prevent Firefox from putting webp as the default file format in the Save Image As dialog box?

Suggesting that I use Internet Explorer or Edge is crazy. I'm not changing browsers.

You can demo this annoyance by trying to save this image, which is obviously supposed to be a jpg: https://media.entertainmentearth.com/assets/images/7c23e8c9a6014c57aa8f5d3e281b3834lg.jpg

I've changed my personal device and currently I only have Firefox installed for the device I am using. When logging in, I've restarted the account password, expecting that sync data from previous devices will be there even after password reset.

Now I've lost all my data, so is it possible to recover Firefox sync data in this scenario?

HD Youtube videos stutter on only the current Firefox (in my case 78 esr)

Only one Browser has problems with HD videos (1080p + above) on youtube: Firefox in the most current version.

I have tested so far only the one current latest version of the ESR branch (78.3.x). But as visible from thousands of articles to this very particular problem (when i search the community help database for "Youtube videos stutter" i get multiple thousands of entries - i read only a handful of them to realize that they are all "closed" and not a single one "solved"), this problem persists since multiple years now.

I have a very old PC by my side with a very old Firefox (benchmark wise slower than my current PC by a factor of at least 3) ESR 52.9, which is able to play the same videos in the same HD resolution without the slightest stutter.

The drivers on that old system are - naturally - outdated by half a decade. THAT OLD OUTDATED system with THAT OLD OUTDATED Firefox is well able to play even multiple HD videos side by side. With-OUT any stutter.

Thus, you can easily deduce by logical reasoning that nighter any outdating of drivers whatsoever nor any outdating of anything else on the system, be it hardware wise or software wise, CAN AT ALL be the culprit of that stuttering.

While the former holds true, what you actually find in the communities help are completely useless and irrational tips of "upgrading the browser to the last version", "upgrading drivers" or "reinstalling any software" or the like.

Let me be clear: Nothing of the latter will ever help in overcoming the stuttering of current firefoxes at all. The only one measure that will help here is to revise the code that is underlying the video pipe.

Since the stuttering regularly only begins after about one to two minutes into the videos, it is strongly suggestive that something in the memory management - probably in the way resources becoming freed after use - is accumulating over time until the stuttering begins. Badly managed garbage collection, perhaps?

My Firefox for MAC 78.4.0esr (64-bit) Browser Window shakes horizontally, uncontrollably, when I click on links in websites. This began just before the last update, and happens more frequently than not, forcing me to abandon the application because I can't close the shaking window. I can't see a specific pattern to which links will cause this to happen, but if I restart Firefox and try the same link, it will repeat the error. My device is a MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2.53GHz, Mid 2009), OSX El Capitan V 10.11.6, 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB. This error does not occur in Safari. Firefox is my preferred browser.

Why add-ons won't start with Firefox? Every time I need to manually disable and enable extensions Privacy Badger, uBlockOrigin (Privacy out of the box extensions) for it to be working, that is, they don't work upon start up. I have deleted the .mozilla folder in my Linux machine to reset firefox and it starts with add-ons only one time; when starting a second time, add-ons don't appear in the toolbar yet they are "enabled" but not working. As previously stated, I need to enable them manually.

Firefox ESR on Devuan, both 2.0 and Beowulf, has a problem involving resizing. Webpages that formally displayed fine now are too large (the indicator shows 100%, but I must reduce it to 80% to display as it did before). Other Linux distributions, for example, Linux Mint and openSUSE, do not have this problem (PaleMoon on the Devuan system does not have the problem).

The hardware is old: Intel 3rd Generation Core processor, 8 GB memory, SSD connected via USB 3.0.

The best solution might be to run both Firefox ESR and regular Firefox. I can download the latter, extract it, move the folder to the desktop, and double-click on "firefox" to start it, similar to how I run PaleMoon. Is there a way to avoid them using the same profile?

Hi hello, I have an issue which might be a bug.

I already have 1 Firefox window open. Firefox account is logged on, with sync enabled. I can access my synced bookmarks and extensions are available as usual.

Now, if I open 2nd Firefox window via these methods: 1) right click at Firefox program at taskbar and click 'Open New Window' 2) at other program (e.g. MS Outlook), I clicked the URL in an email and it will open new Firefox window

The issue is, the 2nd, newly opened, Firefox window are not logged in with Firefox account. My synced extensions and bookmarks are not available.

This issue does not occur if I open 2nd Firefox window from within Firefox itself, like clicking the burger menu (3 horizontal lines at top right) and click 'New Window'. That's why I believe this is a bug.

Hope anyone can help.

Currently, when I download a file, the progress is shown in kilobytes per second. I would like to have that shown as megabits per second, so I can stop wasting time looking up a speed conversion calculator and finding out how the download is doing as compared to what my ISP says my connection is worth. Or, to compare the download speed to any of the speed tests I have done

As you can see from the attached screenshot (it's amusing that the screenshot utility was captured in it), Firefox ESR has an enlarged URL textfield. It recently appeared on Debian-based systems, along with the more annoying bug solved by cor-el in my previous post. It appears when Firefox ESR is first started and on new tabs. I'm sure this is another about:config solution, but I have no idea what to search on.

Hi,

it's the second time that I found a mail from "Firefox <Mozilla@e.mozilla.org>" in my spam folder. Its links seem suspicious to me, beginning with "https://click.e.mozilla.org/" followed by long sequences of digits and letters. The mail's text is identical with parts of the German site "https://www.mozilla.org/de/". Subject line is "Schütze das Web, das du liebst". Maybe it's no spam/phishing, but I want to be shure.

Probably I'm wrong here, but I couldn't find a better place to post this. If so, could anyone tell me the right place to report this?

Thanks a lot! Thomas
