How do I change the language for the Firefox Account pages (Monitor, Sync etc.)?

I am not asking about changing the default language for the webpages! Living in Germany I had to set locale Germany, but I did set the language to English. But oddly it would display all Ff's account pages in German..

Hello altogether. I sat up my MacBook to automatically enter light or dark mode. Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave. Even if I restart the MacBook the next day, while the system boots with light mode enabled, Firefox will remain in dark mode.

To change this temporarily, I have to open the macOS settings and enable light mode. Firefox now change to light mode and stays in light mode, even if I again re-enable the automatic changing in the macOS settings.

Later those days, Firefox enters dark mode as expected but won't leave, like described before.

Is this a known bug? Anything else I can try?

Thanks for reading, looking forward to a possible solution.

Despite what all the articles say, I much prefer reading on my desktop to my phone, so I find it peculiar that the Firefox reading list I've got going on iOS is nowhere to be found on desktop. Seems like plenty of people have asked about this in the past. Would really love this feature to be added soon!

Greetings...

As I visit specific websites and they attempt to install one or more cookies in my Firefox browser, I would like to be able to enable them for the then-current session only, so that they are automatically deleted when I close my Firefox browser.

While I could configure my Firefox browser to delete all cookies and site data when I close my Firefox browser, I do not want to delete all cookies, only those cookies that I have specificaly enabled for the then-current session only.

Is there any way that I can accomplish this in my Firefox browser? Unfortunately, I have been unable to find a way to do this based on my research to date.

Thank you for your attention!

Recently switched from Chrome to Firefox on macOS, and I'd always open PDFs directly in Chrome. I've set my default PDF viewer to Firefox but when I open any downloaded PDFs from Finder, they go directly to a new Firefox window instead of a new tab (as I'm used to from Chrome).

Any way around this? I'd love to have any offline PDFs to be opened in a new tab by default, but nothing has worked so far.

I have an web app I can not control and have to use at work. It constantly all the time every day causes firefox to halt for 10-25 seconds, and displays the black banner with the robot dude "this page is slowing down firefox. to speed up your browser, stop this page".

Restart firefox, removing unnecessary add ons etc I know are the general guidelines.

What I am wondering is is there a log or somewhere specifically in the console/debugger etc I can look to find more information about why it is doing that. I am not a web developer but if I can get some idea about whats causing that I'd have more info to share with the web apps admins.

I can't do anything live, because it really locks up all of firefox but is there a corresponding message afterwards I could look for in the console?

How can I keep the browser setting to open pdf files with Adobe Acrobat, without doing advanced customization? It works every time I reset the option, but changes to "save" for the next time. Adobe says I should switch browsers, to Chrome for example.

I used to have Acrobat as an extension, but now there doesn't seem to be an option for that. Why is this?

Firefox was acting normally keeping my open tabs when I open the browser this morning. I don't know what happened. I left the computer for a couple hours this afternoon. I opened Windows and found a "new desktop" which I didn't want. I clicked on it and it took me back to my normal desktop. I had left Firefox minimized. Maybe this is what has removed my settings in Firefox. Now when I open Firefox, my saved tabs are gone. I've tried twice putting them back in. I check Options to make sure that restore session is checked. Each time I close, I get a single tab and have to re-open all of my favorite pages all over again. My Windows 10 version is 20H2.

What can I do in options that will allow my open tabs to stay saved?

Please reply.

I've used Firefox as my default browser for years. I'm now on a Win10 laptop I've been using for over a year. I have not knowingly made any recent changes to FF. I'm on FF version 88.0.1 (64 bit).

Suddenly, yesterday, I found that I was blocked from viewing many YT videos and comments. YT says I am in restricted mode. It is not due to a setting on my YT/Google account, because I'm not logged in.

Exact YT messages: "Video unavailable--This video is restricted. Please check the Google Workspace administrator and/or the network administrator restrictions." And "Restricted Mode has hidden comments for this video."

However, I have no problem viewing them in Chrome. So logically it's a FF problem.

Also, I discovered that other sites are affected. For example, if I run a "domain lookup" on the ICANN website, I get less detailed results than if I run the search on Chrome! https://lookup.icann.org/

Switching from Strict to Standard Tracking Protection didn't help. Then I did a FF refresh but that also didn't help.

Suggestions? Be aware I'm not a coder or any kind of super techhie.
