Hello,

Recently an adult site I go to, which features videos, isn't working: I can get to site, but nothing shows up on the screen. I've always had 'strict' privacy and adblocking protections, but something seems to have changed. This started happening maybe three weeks ago?

I did follow Mozilla instructions, and clicked on the 'shield' next to the address, changed 'enhance tracking' to off for this site. But that didn't solve the problem. What would be the next thing to try?

Thanks in advance!

unable to turn off safe search when using Bing search. After clicking the more bars on the Bing search page and setting safe search to off, when checking if it is off, it has reverted to moderate. Firefox is vs 96.0.1. Setting is set to normal, not strict. Windows 10 preferences are set to safe search off. All caches have been cleared. I took off all extensions, ran malware bytes & cccleaner & anti-virus scan. I tried a refresh of Firefox. Nothing has helped.

Using Edge or Chrome browsers on the Bing search page, Safe search turns off as it should.

--There was a power failure, last night, which knocked off my computer.  That may or may not be related.  However, with both Edge and Chrome accessing Bing okay, it seems to definitely be a Firefox problem?

Hi! I was digging through the changelogs as I noticed that Google and Firefox settings were now in dark mode. I discovered a new feature that had it sync with the system dark-mode. Is there a way to turn this off (through settings or about:config)? Not a huge fan of dark-mode Google, but light-mode Windows is terrifying lol.

Thanks in advance for your help--not a huge deal, just something I was interested in knowing. Have a fantastic day!

I updated to the latest version yesterday and now my Bookmarks ,History and a few other things have gone into Dark Mode. I really don't care for it and have tried looking into my settings but I see nothing that I can do to go back to the normal white. I am using Windows 11 on an HP All In One Desktop computer. Is there anything I can do to revert back to the way it was? Thanks for any reply.

I have a custom theme on Firefox called Charlies Red. Up until two days ago, Firefox would always consider it to be in light mode (which I prefer) whenever I'd use it. Now, however, it's in dark mode, and the only way I can return to light mode is to give up my custom theme and instead choose Light as a theme, which I don't like as much as Charlies Red.

Is there a way to force light mode on regardless of which theme I use? One source said I could go to about:config and create a ui.systemUsesDarkTheme number, setting it to 0, but I tried it to no avail and so deleted the number.

Hope someone can help.

When I use full screen for some websites, it darkens after about 2 - 5 seconds and my cursor also becomes harder to move. This only started to happen recently.

It is not my computer settings, I've tested this in Safari and it works normally. This makes videos unwatchable. It is like a dark screen suddenly appears over the video and only comes off if i move the cursor. It happens with netflix and prime but not youtube, udemy.

Just to advise after the recent update to Mozilla Firefox v96.0.1 there was a problem with Internet connection not then being available from Firefox.

For extra privacy I have Win 10x64 Pro set to the free Cloudflare free use DNS settings of 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 and this has worked just fine for several months now.

However, since the update as above, Firefox could no longer connect to the Internet.

However, my other Browsers: SeaMonkey and Tor worked just fine.

For security reasons, I never use Chrome, Edge or Safario, as they are basically insecure.

Thinking there was a router problem, I reset that with the pin through the reset hole at the rear, and rebooted the PC.

No further ahead, and I knew it was not a Malware problem either, as I use very good AntiMalware Software.

I switched off the fiber box for 10 minutes, restarted it, no change, Firefox still could not connect.

Aha, a look through the Firefox Settings > Network and checked the DNS setting, which had been default set by Firefox to "CIRA Canadian Shield (By Default)" - That was NOT the setting I had placed into the Win10 Operating System.

Cloudflare was the second option there, so I selected that.

I didn't try the third option of "Next DNS".

Saved the setting (Option 2 Cloudflare)

Rebooted the PC, and no further troubles.

That CIRA Canadian Shield (Default) by Firefox was a trap I hadn't run into.

Just thought you may wish to put this in an appropriate place, as a warning to others.

Experienced with all Windows O/S since 1993, every style of O/S Microsoft has had available, plus much other Software.

This is the first unexpected problem ever I've had with Mozilla Firefox.

I run this PC 24/7, never turned off except for a reboot.

I can run some Firefox 25+ Windows and a total of over 150 Tabs, Run SeaMonkey and Tor with over 100 Tabs between them, and can still do other work.

Pleaty of RAM and SSD's for Operating Systems, backup to HDD's for longevity.

Still using 20+ year old HDD's still good, but they don't thermally cycle (Always on except for reboots), and I am interested to see how long before a failure of one of them =- I just stor DATA on these old HDD's (Copy from elsewhere, so it doesn't matter if I have a failure of an old HDD.
